I am so so sorry for being M.I.A. from this blogging world. Well, a lot has been brewing up lately, and I assure you that you all are going to love the outcome. Stay tuned for that! But for now, to get back on the blogging scenario, I was getting an itch to do an outfit post. Currently most of my days go out playing a *professional*. And by that I mean wearing a lot of (Semi) formal outfits. When it comes to dressing up seriously, people usually opt for a very boring color palette of muted shades of grey and monochromes. Well, the question is… how to break this mundane way of dressing? You can always opt for some pop of color in terms of a fancy scarf, or statement earrings or a sun-kissed handbag. Well, I tried thinking on the same lines and incorporated a combination of muted colors wedded to some serious bling. And by bling, I mean gold bling.  Keeping my quirky style up, and matching up to my professional field… I had to infuse in some *trend*. Since the last year or two, I have seen some serious involvement of the Owl print and the Mustache print! Thanks to Masaba, now we have the *lipstick* and camera print too. Since finding trendy accessories is a tough call, I thought of D.I.Y. – ing my own! My verdict (on semi – formal dressing) :  1. Keep it basic, but stylish. 2. If you don’t have a lady gaga moment, play on the lines of sober colors. (Something other than monochromes) 3. Keep your silhouette comfortable. Don’t let it loose and baggy, nor try to look seductive! 4. Play double safe with accessories which are pleasing in a concrete professional environment. Have you seen those cinema scenes, …

The Themes : a) Androgynous b) Monochrome c) Resort Wear d) Formal Wear e) Neon & Neutrals: f) Pastels g) Graphical My Style : Being an ardent fan of Mademoiselle Gabrielle Coco Chanel and her works of life, I had to give her a tribute irrespective of the outcome. Keeping the *Formal Wear* theme in mind, I studied the great works of Coco Chanel, took account and united history in the form of a look. The entire outfit was sourced from Zara India The Chanel Look  The Boater hat: Coco Chanel came into being with her “Flat Boater Hats” in the early 1920’s. To add her personal glamour touch to these hats, she introduced the embellished versions of the same. Military/Modern hairstyle: At times when fascinators and long locks were adorned by women, Coco Chanel brought a change about how a woman should comfortably dress, look and feel! Celebrating a modern diva, she herself carried short haircut with long curls to keep the look avant-garde yet sophisticated. Strings of Pearls: One of the remarkable creations of Coco Chanel was the “Costume Jewellery”. She partnered with Duke Fulco di Verdura to launch a House of Chanel jewelry line. …
