From the Desk of a Not-so-Known Designer!

Enough is Enough!

There is a saying that Fashion repeats itself every 20-30 years! But still there are a few things that I seriously don’t want to be repeated. Following is a non-comprehensive short-list of so called fashion-eshtyle that I badly don’t like:
1.       Sadhna cut---Eeeew! I can’t remember any other girl other than Sadhna ji, on whom this Wow (?) style suited! Especially, on girls with small faces-it’s awful! (Sorry!)
My niece-I'm struggling to get her some other haircut!
2.       Bell-bottom trousers---What a taste? Who designed them? Just try to remember TALL & HANDSOME Big B of those days wearing trousers tight on waist and wider like curtains on bottom!!! Do I need to tell more? B-)
Thanks to IndianExpress
3.       Hippy cut with X-Large shades---Have you ever noticed, most of the guys who sort loooong girlish-hair, generally have beards too? Simple reason-they do want to look man! And with those bbbigggg shades-what they say in hindi ‘karela aur neem chadha’!
from movie Hera Pheri
4.       Talcum powdered faces---I don’t like Fairness creams either, but faces loaded with Talcum powder! What to say? No comments please!
5.       Polka dots---Height of repetitiveness!

But, there are a few fashion statements that are just adorable, guaranteed for admiration:
1.     Saree---Oooooh! What an appeal! Be it Rekha ji or Sushmita Sen, a saree clad nari (lady) is just Dillogical! <3

2.    Dhoti/Chudidar-Kurta-Jodhpuri Jooti---This is an ultimate fashion statement! Want to be odd one out on the even side? Wear it! Gracious! Respectable! Unmatchabale!
3.       Blue Denim-White Shirt---I bet, everybody who has ever wear or thought to wear a Denim, have aspired for at least One real Blue-Denim in his/her collection with a white shirt to be tugged in on any and all the occasions! What regular, all time turn-on attire! Hot!
4.       Denim & Kurti---This fusion dress for girls looks superb if maintained!
5.       Ankle Boots---These are the pairs, a Man/Lady can always strive for! On a ride, or with your coolest denims, they just complete the harmony!
6.       Kolhapuri Chappals---Personal favorite, on denims. Try those; they are fabulous (though difficult to walk with).
7.   Aviators---The Best a Man can get! Another Personal Favorite! :)

A lot is still cooking inside my semi-fashionable Brain; semi-cause I like watching FTV or ZeeTrends but know don’t have any guts to try them! But, yess it’s one’s own privilege to decide what to wear, what not to! One of my teachers, though, said, “Eat what YOU love to; Wear what OTHERS love on you”. 
My own standard for judging has been observing my shadow, about what is actually fitting beautifully, one’s shadow better says than mirror!

    Like you said, this is from desk of not so known designer.

    u think bell bottoms are ugly? or you haven't seen katie holmes wearing one.

    u think polka dots are ugly?
    what about polka dots seen in stella McCartney??? or the ones at Erdem and D&G??

    lol.. honestly. no fashion/trend is ugly if its worn how it is supposed to be.
    wearing a saree and sneakers with over sized gogles ought to look horrible.
    wearing metallics head to toe or animal prints head to toe will obviously look horrible.

    it's about how you wear/sport the trend :)


  8. Thanks Purushu, for such an insightful comment!
    I am really gaudy on fashion sense, and wear only what please my eyes on mirror. What I wrote above was much about that sense of suiting on me, thou I didnt actually tell. I surrender to each and every point raised by you, and I seriously appreciate the quote 'no fashion/trend is ugly if its worn how it is supposed to be', If you'll allow would like to update the post with this quote...

    Much thanks :)

  9. Ha ha. lol :) can.

    but somehow it's strange. we people in India can easily get judgmental about fashion. I didn't mean this post. But in general. We are bound by too much of customs and traditions. It's still gonna take years for us to completely open up to not just fashion but certain other issues.

    Oh. and it's an amusing read btw :)

Thanks for the visit! It would be great if you may spare a few seconds more to comment on the post...

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

AshtaVinayaka Yatra with Bisons

(This post has already appeared on Bisons Ride Hard website, to check out click here) Ever since I read Vinni’s post on last year’s Ride of Faith, I have been waiting for this year’s ride. The day I came to know about the Bison’s schedule, I started preparing, until I realized I don’t have leaves. Few days left to the ride, multi-reminders received and I was like, will I be able to make it? Something happened, meetings deferred, jobs got completed and I was able to ask my boss for leaves; and, who can deny you leaves that too for a Ride of Faith, Ride to AshtaVinayaka! I felt blessed that day, and now after the hard ride we had, I know I’m blessed! We are a nation of faith, which plays an immensely large role in our lives, being homely, officially or on the tar. Though Bisons have started riding hard the day they first met at BKC on a fine Sunday evening of July 23, 2011 at BKC; official announcement was made on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chautrthi, Shukla Paksha, Bhadra maas, i.e. Se…

A Day at Global Vipassana Pagoda (A Photo Story)

What I like most about the cities we live in is the places we generally not aware about. Like the case of one of its own kind Butterfly Park of Thane, which is at stone throw distance from my place and I came to knew about it a few months back only. Then there is this Pagoda – another one of its own kind – world renowned and still not known to many city dwellers. We visited this place to take pictures and let me confirm it, we were stoned by the colors and the mystical sky (check out the Photo Story at the bottom of the post)
Located at Northern most corner of the Megacity of Mumbai, across the Gorai creek, Global Vipassana Pagoda is a meditation hall built out of gratitude to the Buddha, his teaching and the community of monks practicing his teaching (Wikipedia).  The Pagoda is also known for being built on the world's largest stone dome without any supporting pillars, at height of ~29 metres and external diameter 94.82-97.46 m. It is, thus, twice the size of the Gol Gumbaz Dome in…
