Took An Evening Out With The Avengers

I went to watch The Avengers today. It was housefull and by the time we reached only the front 2 rows had a few seats left. But it was worth the neck pain. Well after the movie starts you kind of don't care about the awkward angle anymore. My verdict - mind blown. And so worth the wait. My favourite character - Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff...no wait Tony Stark/Iron Man....no wait Thor...no Hulk/Dr.Bruce Banner...Agent Phil & Loki ...yes yes what a treat just before all my exams roll on Monday onwards.. Buy your popcorn and grab a cold drink and go ahead to be blown by awesomeness.


and here's what I wore..I was running late..we had to hurry to get the tickets..well I barely made it but this is what I threw on..







See I didn't give any spoilers because I know some of you haven't watched it yet.
Till next time...bye

Very To The Rescue



The ultimate party dress this summer

Whether you’ve got a special night planned with Mr Right, you’re heading out with the girls or your diary is just bulging with social occasions – it’s time to pick out the perfect party dress for the summer.

So what’s it to be; long and flowing, short and sultry, super tight and skinny or a vintage classic? The choice is endless. Luckily for you, there's a handy guide to keep you on the straight and narrow when it comes to choosing your going out dresses.

What’s Hot and What’s Not

Ah summer, your unpredictable weather sends our careful fashion planning into confusion. This year it’s time for forget about the rain and place your trust in summer pastels. Yep, chuck out your neon and say down with the brown. This year we’re thinking flirty and feminine. So work out which shade is right for you and accessorise to your heart’s content.

Flower Power or Plain and Simple?

This year is a ’whatever you want year’ and, as they don’t come around very often, you should make the most of it! Whether you fancy your French Connection maxi or love your Lipsy mini, this year it’s all about mixing it up.

Who’s In and Who’s Out?

It’s all about celeb designers this season. From Fern Cotton’s fabulous range of vintage dresses, to Holly Willoughby’s classic glamour and Diana Vickers’ retro style, you’ll be sure to get it right this season.

Where to Wear?

Let’s keep things simple. If you’re heading out on the town and fancy kicking up your heels, then short and sassy is just the ticket. For a couple of cocktails you can’t go wrong with a Love Label design, or if you’re heading out for a BBQ, why not go boho with a printed maxi dress from South?

Summer should be the time for fun, so don’t sit at home scratching your head over what to wear. Whether you’re one of the lucky so-and-so’s who’s heading off to warmer climates or you’re staying put this year, live it up and make yourself known with a fabulous going out dress.

Love Label Sheer Long Sleeve Shirt

Lipsy Sleeveless Peplum Dress
Ralph Lauren Stripe Maxi Dress

Around a Skirt

A lot has been happening..at least in my head even though my body doesn't move much..such lame jokes. I bought this skirt a few days back. I realised I haven't bought anything in months and that gave me an itchy hand the moment I got some cash. I am sick of having so few skirts. I used to hate them. Maybe having a skirt as part of the school uniform for nearly a decade and a half just did it. Kills your vision, just kills it.
So anyway somewhere down the line a couple of years back I decided I will buy great skirts...and then I found absolutely nothing I liked..for long..I finally got this because apparently I saw something in it this time I didn't the last few times I saw it hanging on the racks.
I am a huge grunge fashion fan. I hope if you didn't know that I did drive it in with my last post. I took a bit of grunge inspiration for styling this outfit around the skirt.











Skirt- Latin Quarters
Top(really old and battered with almost regular wear on sweaty college days) - Westside
Boots- Catwalk
Accessories- here & there,mostly from street shops, the garnet necklace was a gift from my best friend years ago

adios!

Real or Not Real

I saw it on the 2nd day of its release. Then after walking out I bought the whole series. I just needed to know the whole story you see and from experience I know the book always holds greater treasures than it's onscreen Hollywood adaptation. It was lucky I got them that day. The book store was out of stock and I was already finished billing when a fresh stock arrived and the store assistant came looking for me to let me know. I went home with The Hunger Games trilogy. The 1st book was good but I already knew how things ended. So I made it through lightly..
But I had a better glimpse at Katniss Everdeen and what exactly the bread Peeta gave meant to her. The bright yellow dandelions and the burnt bread.
Catching Fire is the most compelling book I have read in the longest time. I will not give away anything for those who haven't read it yet. If you think a YA book is not worth your time then let me tell you I thought the same before and I'm so glad I went ahead anyway. Even if I had not seen the movie that day I know I would have found the way to this one.
I finished Mockingjay in one breath it seems. I couldn't keep it aside. I had to know. I slept poorly the last 2-3 nights ( I remember preparing for and giving a viva exam on Great Depression somewhere in between) and I needed to know the end before another night hit me. I remember the stories I have finished at dawn break - there have been only 3 - and I remember those moments when I stared out the window watching the sun come up thinking about what just happened to me. It is the characters I love lingering on long after I have mulled over the story and what all it meant.
A good book, a good story can do that to you. I love Katniss, my heart aches for Peeta and Prim and every character you come across you are bound to be moved by them. Don't reduce it to a love triangle, this story
is about so much more. In contemporary YA literature you will come across very few like this one. In fact what I see between Gale and Katniss is only friendship because I know friendship. Her relationship with pretty much everyone else is a point of constant conflict in her mind at different points of the story. This is not a love story. This story is about rebellion, revolution, reclaiming who you are, coming to terms with what you have become and about hope and debts you can never pay off. I woke up a few hours back and tried to clear my head to read through this post I wrote in the morning in a state of heavy sleep deprivation and in a trance. I am still not recovered fully.
P.S.- I should let you know though Mockingjay could be disappointing. But, there was no other way it could have ended.

it was stupid not to include her in the movie


what Cinna did

forever be reminded of the smell of blood and roses - thank you Suzanne Collins
Finnick was another favourite character of mine

“The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol's plans. The symbol of the rebellion.” - Katniss Everdeen

Trend Report 2012 - trends I'm not indulging in

Fashion changes with the seasons but style is constant. Our personal style evolves as we evolve as individuals. Somethings are not you right now. In the past maybe you wore those things and in the future you may wear those other things and in between hundreds of things will be trending. The key is to not lose yourself in the trend machine.
I often make lists of things which are on my wish list and the trends I am loving. We all do. So here's a list of the current trends I won't be indulging in.
Would you try any of them?If yes, which one & why?

Acid Reign(because I don't appreciate looking like a Christmas tree decked up in Hawaiian theme)
Blumarine Spring RTW 2012
Good Sport(because I ain't sporty.because I wore things like this in school & they weren't see through)
Alexander Wang Spring RTW 2012
Make The(Laser)Cut(lol see the design!)
Prabal Gurung Spring RTW 2012
Happy Days: new version of Stepford Wives(because of the inspiration.too demure.just because.)
Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture
Prim and Proper(I get an itchy toe.I am anything but prim & proper)
Tory Burch Spring RTW 2012
Plastic Fantastic(it's not fantastic at all.give me a plastic umbrella instead.so much more fab)
Dolce & Gabbana Spring RTW 2012
This post is the product of me sifting through the Vogue Trend Report SS 2012 that came in with my April issue. The titles of the looks are exactly how they were in the issue. I pretty much loved everything else in it. Especially their chunky shoe love;also the beauty, sunglasses, jewellery, bags and hats sections.
I am going to sign off now and cry looking at my wardrobe which is spilling with basic stuff.
P.S.-I believe every one of these items are workable to create awesome outfits with different themes. All photos are from style.com and the gif is from #whatshouldwecallme.tumblr.com
