It's on, you guys!

Trend report for Summer 2012, I guess?

Lace, Cut outs and Pastels are going to be seen around the most this summer.

You can see Cut outs on dresses by Louis Vuitton to Plazzos in local market places in Delhi. Florals are most common. You can also find raw material of this cloth in Chandini Chowk, Khan Market and other places where you may find raw material (New Delhi). This design has been restricted to borders only which is one drawback but i hope they start bringing out the design all over. Or i hope the stores start bringing in outfits made of this material.
Other than Maxis, jumpsuits, crop tops etc.. the cut out cloth has been used to make collars which is pretty rad. We need metal collar tips please! Talking about Cut out i'm kinda really into the Leather and Plexiglas Sandals by Versace. But right now, i can only gawk at them for hours because puppy dog faces won't really melt my Ma's heart. (MOMS.)
The ones i like are actually in grey and pink but they look just like this. (Source- google)

Some pictures from Louis Vuitton's Spring Summer 2012 collection at the Paris Fashion Week-

Lace has been on outfits.. AND SHOES TOO. <3 From tops, jumpsuits and dresses, lace has made it's way to shoes too. I was pretty observant of the arrival of lace in the market and i noticed that lace has maintained it's position since Autumn 2011. And this summer, it IS going to be seen around A LOT. Mark my words friends- lace is going to be around for a longass time and you're going to love it.

This one is from Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2012 collection. 

From nail polishes to blazers, lowers, uppers (caps, tops, shirts et al) pastels are everywhere. Pastels may not be as big as Lace and Cut out but there are going to be bits and pieces here and there. I hope the Indian markets and buyers welcome shades of pastel with open arms because dude, WHAT BLAZERS! Though we wouldn't be needing blazers in summers in the scorching heat, but still, just saying. So dear readers, let me know where i can find the awesomeness.

To Live Is To Learn

I want to share some stuff with you guys which may seem totally off topic. But I just WANT to share what i learned these few months.

  • Love yourself
Those who love you will end up hurting you in some way or the other. LIFE! As you call it. Love for your own self  wouldn't die. It would never hurt you. 

  • Stop looking for others appreciations
Don't wait for people around you to tell you how good you look or how good you are at what you do. What YOU feel about YOURSELF is what others feel about you. Krishna once said, "Others look at you the way you look at yourself." Form good opinions about yourself. That's it.

  • Don't base your thoughts on other's opinions
We often tend to forget our own opinions, agree with what others have to say, make their thoughts our own and tell other people about it.  Don't be scared to voice your opinions. They are YOUR opinions. You are allowed to do whatever the hell you want to. 

  • Don't run behind ANYTHING
The more you run behind things, the more they run away from you. So STOP running behind things. 

 Wearing: Soft Blazer: Chicos; Jeggings: Thrifted; Black leather sandals: Next; Random black top; Orange Neon Belt.

Remember the soft blazer I posted in August? (here)  Never got a chance to post it before today because obviously, it HAD to get lost in my closet when I really needed it. But heyy, it is never too late. Plus, it is SPRING! And i really wanted to post/wear something floral for my newest post. 
These pair of jeggings and the random black top that I bought off the streets of Sarojini are the best!
