Styling Series 3 : Cecilia

I was actually listing to Simon & Garfunkel – Cecilia while thinking of a name for this dress and sounded perfect somehow. Going by the lyrics of the song – it occurred to me Cecilia is not the most girly girl in the world and girl has got some confidence for sure! I like how this dress is not the most girls and the most flattering, but there is this weird coolness about it that I love!

For those who read my blog regularly would know how much I love suspenders and will always do and I have come across so many people who are afraid of trying them, that’s one of the reasons why I chose this dress to style. This is size medium, I love the oversized look of it, oversized is actually quite great for autumn/winter season. There is some light check detailing close the buttons which is really cute I think. I paired this up with a floral shirt which also happens to be from my shop!

I think the duo looks great together, for shoes – I chose flat pointed Mary Jane shoes from H&M and a handmade wicker bag. Would do you guys think of this look? I’d love to know!

Stay tuned for the next dress!

A floral dress is my favorite kind – it’s ageless, super flattering and you can pair it up with almost any footwear. You don’t need to think twice! A floral dress has a special place in my wardrobe, especially this one! This is unlike all the other floral dresses I have – this feels heavy and light at the same time. There is so much going on in this dress and you can still dress it down or dress it up. I chose to dress it up because this is the dress I was planning to wear on a wedding I was suppose to go to. I missed the wedding, but I really wanted to do a post around it still. I am wearing it exactly the way I was planning to wear it on the wedding. I think it would have made a pretty cool outfit. I love the print on the dress, I love how lively it is, there ruffles on the sleeves, darts around the neck and ruffles at the bottom as well. This is a lot of stuff for me in one dress but I still love it!

with everything, they are so versatile! Perfect way to pump up a simple dress or a fancy one to look fancier!  It’s one of those dresses that makes me feel very elegant and it gives me fake curves which I love! Also, it can be paired up in so many ways during autumn/ winter season as well, that’s the thing with floaty pieces like these!

I got my own back!

Me, like all of us all of us – I am ever changing, evolving. I am messy and flawed and sometimes I can’t stop making the same mistakes. I’d like to think I’m a happy and positive person, but lately I’ve been comparing myself and degrading myself and thinking my opinions don’t matter. I really don’t want to disagree but stats tell me they don’t. My brain works like fuck it and let it go. But things never really go out of my brain, no matter how much I try to cover them and put layers and layers of other emotions on top. They always find their way back to me. Now when these emotions hit back, I blame myself for feeling them or having them again and again thinking I shouldn’t be thinking like this and try and not be bothered by things. Deep down I know I am not entirely wrong and I need a few things to exist. I wait, wait and wait for some for something to happen. Something to change. Nothing does, so try to change myself and pretend that things don’t matter. But it doesn’t work like that. The more I try to hide them, the worse they become. Sometimes things are hard to accept especially when you don’t know for how long they are going to be like this. Self – hatred can be very easily developed in such situations especially where you are made believe that’s it’s your problem why everything is wrong. It’s all your fault. It’s a huge drain on your physical and mental health and sometimes I can’t believe the amount of my time and energy is drained in getting myself out of it.  It has created an environment for me where I feel my issues are going unheard and unnoticed, an environment where I feel I can’t express myself or ask for a change – going with the flow is the only way to go whether it is right or wrong, whether it works for everyone or not.

Things need to change even if they are hard. It’s brave to make painful choices and admit that change is required. It’s also freeing and liberating in many ways.  

Styling Series : Part 2

Here’s just one of many reasons to love floral dresses and victorian blouses. I feel floral dresses are made babes of all shapes and sizes, from XS through to XL. They are so easy to style and so easy to carry, a whopping big high-five to that! 

Luckily, flower print dresses are fairly easy to find! If you fancy this one, visit my shop – shop.retrodays.in

This blouse is from Zara and bag is from Mango.
