I thought I should make use of all the endless drafts lying with me and write a last post before leaving for India. Also this is again an outfit post as I do not have any new or finished artwork to show nor are any philosophical thoughts crossing my mind, nor has anybody or anything bothered me much which can make me vent out on the blog, plus I am in the phase of getting things in order before final packing happens...I can't begin to tell you, how excited I am :) :)
Okay, so back to this post........Umm.. I have read many many posts talking about what will be the most in things this spring like pleats, pastels, florals, dropped hems..hmn...let me think now... oh!!! well there is this top that has been lying in my closet from past year which I have worn many a times, which is fun and flirty and somehow has all the ingredients of the "In Fashion" outfit....BUT... I bought it because I liked it and not because I wanted to follow the "trend". The point I want to make is to not be blinded by what the commercially driven fashion houses wants to slide down your throat. Buy what you like when and when you like it and not because a fashion magazine or a blogger says that you've got to have it NOW.
Also if you can remember, we all had worn pleated skirts as kids/teenagers and then "they went out of fashion" and we started to hate them. But now they are all back and we sort of love them again, right??? Well, the thing about fashion is that it runs in cycles, i.e what goes around comes back around. Earlier these cycles used to be very long like 70's polka dots made a come back just about recently but now these polka dots will keep coming back in a short span of time, rather I would say that they will never really go anywhere, but would be reinterpreted in one way or the other. However, they will be promoted heavily as the next "in thing" all over the internet and fashion shows at regular intervals.
So pleats are in now, it will not be so in sometime later but will come back with a bang in only a couple of years. So spend wisely and hold on to the timeless pieces.
Thanks for reading.
And yes, there is an interesting swirly fun thing at the end of this post, do watch it :) :)
