    I was in a really maverick mood today and wanted to dress silly.


    Top: Floral Topshop spaghetti top from FS for Rs 200. I cannot tell you how much I adore old lady floral prints. You should have seen my teenage wardrobe. It was constructed out of English upholstery.

    Pants: Faithful Sykes from Levis. Regular fit, nothing fancy. I can roll them up to “boyfriend jeans” or just wear them as decent pants that let me ride pillon.

    Jacket: Vintage Men’s blazer from Etsy. This completes my set of blazers. Ironically, it’s cheaper to buy a blazer in The Abroad, with shipping, than to buy a decent one in India.

    Shoes: Black Mary Janes from Tel Aviv 2008.


    Accessories: A rose pink/fawn silk scarf from Causeway for Rs 75. My hair cannot be held down by bobby pins anymore, so I have to find new ways of helping it grow out. A brass dog pin for whimsy. Instead of a belt, I used the adjustable belt of a bag, interlocking the brass clasps. Because I could.


    Square G-Shock watch, green stone earrings and insouciance.

      Oh gorgeous. Love the belt, love the scarf. Wish the jacket fit just a little better (I’m all about the feminine) but the maverick thing really comes through. Love the black-white-fawn colour thing too.

      Love this look! Maverick indeed!

      Thanks Aparna. Avni, I have been considering finding a good tailor to take in the waist a bit. Don’t if I can take the leap of trust though.

      Uber cute. I too love old lady floral prints (as you put it!)
      Is FS Fashion Street? Just a guess.

        Yes, FS is fashion street

    Top: My new basic white tee with looser sleeves and a waistband. For 150 bucks from Causeway. I wasn’t sure how this silhouette would look on me and now I regret not buying every available colour. Woe!

    Waistcoat: Burnt sequin spangled Zara waistcoat for Rs 200 from Causeway. I went back the next day to buy some for the SaM shop, and poof! they were all gone.

    Pants: Another pair of funny pants. I bought these in summer and they have been a dream come true (if you dream of pants) — linen, pockets, elastic waistband, loose, allowing freedom of movement. They are like culottes but with a lower crotch. Cost: Rs 350. They even work in the monsoons as they stop above the ankle and dry fast.

    Shoes: Red jelly flats from Bata, two years ago. Rs 200.

    Accessories: Bowler. Yes, I love hats. I do, on some days, even brave ridicule on account of them. I do not wear them indoors, though. The bowler was missing from my collection.

    Apart from the hat, men’s Casio watch and possibly some dangling earrings. Who can remember when you have such a fabulous hat?

      This is so quirky, and unique! Love it, though it does remind me of Raj Kapoor singing ‘mera joota hai japani’ ;)
      The hat is awesome, too. Where did you get it?

        Yeah, it gave me a tramp vibe too. The hat is from ASOS.com.
