Mirror selfies. Done in style.

Hello people,

It’s Saturday today and 7:58 in the morning here in Mumbai. I woke up at 6:30. To run. Yeah right. ūüėČ Didn’t so much as lift my finger to plug in my Macbook to watch some Suits. And meanwhile¬†took¬†Vogue’s advice on who to follow on¬†Instagram. From Kazakhstan.

(In case you want to follow me on Instagram, click here.)

And after my¬†routine bout¬†of self-pity, a habit I just can’t seem to shake off, even after repeated reading of “Spiritual” texts and “self-help” guides and quotes that people share on Facebook, and a mug of chai (of course),¬†I am now starting on doing something productive.

Anyway, so again, since we are on Chai High, which is supposed to be my blog on fashion and anti-fashion, I’ve put together a few fashion (and anti-fashion) selfies I’d clicked over the past few months. You can read more about my article¬†on how to be¬†stylish effortlessly, here.

Mirror Selfie #1

So, on this day, I was wearing a white knee-length dress with a saree blouse and gold Kolhapuri slippers. To see the complete look, click here.

My mom bought me this dress from Bangkok. It’s crafted in this slinky material that flatters your body beautifully.

I chose to add more texture to this outfit by wrapping an Indian printed dupatta around my neck and slinging on a gold, hot pink and green bag. I matched my slippers to the bag.

What do you think about this look?

This one was at night when I was feeling a little low (and gothic in my head). Hence the darkness. However, the dress in light couldn’t be happier. It’s a blue printed Forever 21 maxi dress. Perfect for the beach and light summer evenings.

What I wore to work two days back. It’s a basic blue pair of boyfriend jeans from United Colors of Benetton and a white sleeveless long shirt that I’ve worn tucked in. I teamed it up with brown leather brogues from a shop called Shoe Biz on Linking Road, Mumbai.

Again, from my Goth phase, this is what I wore to bed and to my early morning cup of tea.

I was trying to mimic the illustration on my cupboard door. haha! ūüėÄ
