Sparkle-Sparkle-Sparkle....Mama Mia!! Ashish is my soul brother from another mother! Have you guys seen Ashish's S/S 2016 collection at LFW? its absolutely gorgeous and spectacular!!! totally dripping in glitter it was a Colourful, bubbly and sequin feasting collection, a celebration of Fashion. Ashish sure knows how to outshine.
Models looked like 90's high school queens, in loose,slouchy silhouettes, sequin slips, baby doll dresses sliding down the runway on skateboards made the opening more grandeur. It was like a rainbow of sequins rendered on most of the collections. Heart cut outs, frayed denims, fringe detailing giving us the 70's vibe. Sheer layers and casual fits and oh even massive bows at the back of the denim ( absolutely adorable!)
The collection ran from a sporty street style to a shiny evening club wear. Everything so sparkly from the head to the toe. Sparkly trainers with bucket hats. Loved them random sparkly makeup from the hair to the face.
Now lets all wait for winter to pass!!!!!
this is totally a QUEEN! who doesn't love a cape!! its denim and its embellished!!!!

Spring outfit : shorts with coat! my Favourite ;)
You can't take a chance with the Italian weather, you could have all the seasons in one day if your not lucky ;) Pair up your shorts with a trench coat or a lighter jacket to keep yourself prepared. I was glad i did that because the whole day it was all bright -warm-sunny and by late afternoon the weather decided to storm up with an indecent amount of rain and wind that could almost blow you away. i did ended up with a sneezy night and it wasn't so nice.
so now you could tell me whats your favourite spring look?
Tops - Thriftstore
higwaisted shorts - Pull and bear
Trench coat - Zara
Sandals - Newlook

Spring is finally here!!! blooming flowers, fresh leaves on the trees, green grass, chirping birds, sunny days....such a beautiful season. So to go along with the season i thought ill dwell myself and everyone in the mood through these posts coming up.
This shoot was done end of last summer in a beautiful field of wild cotton grass in Nagaland, India.
The flower crowns are easy to be made. i made them using bamboo as the base and the artificial flowers for decoration. Five crowns were made and ill be posting them in parts so keep a watch ;)

Got a friend's wedding coming up this summer and I've been looking for boutonniere ideas. Its gonna be an open field wedding so don't want anything too heavy or posh or too delicate.
Im keen on using dried flowers, fruits, twigs and dried hay with jute thread and some vintage lace. It won't be too over the top yet it'll have its own class maintained- a rustic indie style. i don't wanna use anything fresh cos its a summer open field wedding and the fresh flowers and leaves may wither by the end of the day and nobody wants to have a dead plant hanging on you.
Found some very interesting ones on Pinterest (BELOW)....many very easy to DIY-ed.
i love these but I'm afraid the flowers won't last all day
I love this, how quirky it is to use a shotgun shell...simple and perfect.
do you have any ideas?
I will update when i start to create my own DIY boutonniere. Stay updated.
