Wonders of layers

Posted on

As I was moving away from the slim side of the scale, getting ready in the morning for office was turning into a task.

Trying to find ways to hide that unwelcome flab, otherwise called my tummy, was making me think innovatively of my wardrobe. Till I discovered the miracle of layers.

How did layers come for my rescue?

I came across an article where the writer swears by the goodness of layered clothing to hide that flab. I thought, if you are already heavy, wont adding more and more clothes to your torso make you look well a bit extra covered?

But not discouraged by the thought, I decided to give it a try. What I did was layer my loose t-shirts with a longer, tighter and dark colored t-shirts or tank t-shirts. And sometimes with lose t-shirts with shirts.

Now did it work? Like hell it did. Which it added more colors, dimension and depth to my dressing, I realised that as the inner t-shirt gave a more free flow to the outer layer, making it rather impossible for anyone to see the flabby tummy.

What I liked best of this style, was the compliments I got. People in office loved my style and think that I slimmed down.

Miracle of layers could not have made me happier.

Office Fashion Malfunction??!!??

Posted on

The luxury that we females enjoy, compared to men, is the wide variety in options in wardrobe. Yet, we end up being so wrong on so many occasions.

The most misused item of female clothing, as per me, would be skirts. Although the most amazing piece of clothing, it’s also the most abused. We don’t really tend to think of the fact that skirts not just have to be of your liking, but they also need to hold the practicality of the place being worn at.

And the perfect places to see these malfunctions are in office. So I came across two females, while walking up to fetch a coffee and both were wearing skirts, which as per me were oh so wrong. While one wore a canvas khaki casual skirt on nice satin formal shirt, other wore a short hemline tulip skirt with sequenced work.

While waiting for my coffee to brew up, I just wondered to myself that if the khaki skirt girl exchanged her skirt with the tulip skirt one, she would look perfect for a party. And if the tulip skirt girl wore the khaki skirt, she would still be so wrong.

End conclusion of this coffee pondering?? That some women need help when getting dressed for office, or maybe they can just buy pencil skirts, they are perfect for office and do wonders to your figure.

 Oh and my office definately needs a better coffee machine.

Oh that whiff

I have a deep undying love for perfumes. I not just love to buy them, but I also love it when someone crosses me and is wearing a lovely perfume.

So the other day, I was wearing my favorite perfume Eternity to office. As usual it catches a lot of attention and appreciations from people around. One of my fellow female colleague is in the ‘make over’ mood these days and is goes around asking a lot of questions about clothes, diets, shoes etc. after smelling the perfume on me, she decided to buy one for herself too.

Today when I wore eternity, as a coincidence, she ended up wearing the same perfume. However, it did not smell nice on her. It gave out a very pungent spicy smell which I do not like in my perfumes. Boggled by the difference in smells of the same perfume, she asked why it does not smell the same. I had to tell her that perfumes change smell based on a person’s personal smell or oils.

The mistake that she made is very common when it comes to people buying perfumes. They smell the perfume on the smell cards, and do not try it on their skin and therefore buy it based on the smell they get. Most even buy smell simply because it’s popular.

Perfumes are costly affairs, therefore, my advice to everyone would be, try the smell on your skin and don’t get influenced on how it smells on someone else.

Fashion Dilemma

Posted on


Every morning I am stuck with the same dilemma, of what should I be wearing today, or how am I supposed to mix and match this one.

From what I know from my friends, this is a common situation for most of the girls.

So when I opened up my eyes in the morning today, I visually scanned my wardrobe and finally decided to wear this:

Grey on Black is the safest bet you can make on this planet. And when accompanied with your regular denim, it just adds on to the smartness. Lucky part is that the color combination is so amazing, that you do not need to jump on the accessory bandwagon. So all I wore was my bracelet and a pair of small danglers.

I must confess, I did receive few compliments on this, including that of my mother, who on general is rather shy when it comes to giving compliments
