Peach Tropical Midi for the Theater


Hello everyone!

It is Summer in India and the temperatures are scorching. In our flat, the AC is constantly on. And I dread going out!  I cannot wait for the Monsoon to come and bring a fresh breeze and lower temperatures to Pune.

I have been busy attending my kids school theater week. It is the last week of school and children are performing. First I had to go and listen to my oldest sing, then it was time for each of them to perform a play with their classmates.  I watched the baby's play first which was a remake of the famous kids movie Madagascar. My youngest was playing Marty, the zebra. The play was very funny and entertaining. I did not expect it to be so but the kids age two to six put on a great show. And I have to give kudos to the teachers who organized the entire event.

For the show I wore this printed midi dress that I purchased in Thailand.  I got it with two other tunics at the same store that sold only Jersey dresses. The midi dresses came in several prints but I did not want them originally because they were sleeveless. At the last minute I chose this one because I liked the tropical print.



Scarf - Langkawi night market, Malaysia
Wrap cardigan - Gap
Dress- random store in Pratunam market, Thailand
Leggings - Clover center, Pune
Shoes - Much More, Pune 




The dress is super breezy even when paired with this cardigan. Plus the amphitheater where we watched the performance had air conditioning,  so I did not suffer.  I am thinking that next time I wear the dress I would pair it with a blazer for a more sophisticated look. I just have to pick one from the black, white and peach I already own!





These shoes were ridiculously cheap and I could not resist a cut out peep toe wedge. They are also super comfy and a tad elegant. Best 250 Rps I ever spent!

Scarf and a headband

Hello.

I had to go to town to meet a friend for lunch then take the kids to the pool. For some reasons it took me 30 minutes to dress up this morning. I hate when that happens. I had the proper pants and the proper blouse but my turtle neck (that was supposed to keep me warm) clashed with the whole look. Then I looked for my new to go denim shirt but I remembered that I just washed it. Few minutes later, I decided to wear my olive green skirt with a red sweater but I looked like a Xmas tree. I finally settled for this:


Scarf - Walmart
Beaded headband - Daiso?
Coat - Thrifted
Cardigan - Nissen online
Turtle neck - G.U.
Skirt - G.U.
Shoes - Shimamura
Bag - Chatujak market
Bracelets - Did it myself


I wanted to wear a scarf today. I rarely wear scarf because I am not a pro at wearing them. Furthermore I always have to adjust them for they never stay in place. And do not even get me started on using pins because those things scare me. That is why I often resort to wearing my scarves like…

Tokyo Girls Collection

In the fashion world, there something much anticipated by designers, buyers, celebrities and fashionistas. It is Fashion Week.
Japan is no different. There is a Tokyo fashion week. However, there is something quite similar to Fashion week, yet very different that started in 2005. It is Tokyo Girls Collection.

TGC is a bi-annual 5 hour fashion carnival taking place in an arena which can hold 15.000 people. Japanese models showcase collections for Japanese (and sometime foreign) trendy brands, and on top of that there is also entertainment from Japanese and Korean pop artists. However what makes the show interesting -aside from the fact that only affordable brands are displayed- is that spectators can purchase any item they see on the runway on the spot. By using their mobile phone, they log on to the show site and buy the item of their choosing. 

TGC has grown so popular that only well known Japanese models (/actors/singers) can appear. It is also a way for a new brand to make a name…

Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak dear readers!

Yesterday, most Muslims around the world got to celebrate Eid el Fitr which marks the end of a month long fasting event called Ramadan. Some celebrated the day before.

In Senegal, it was decided that it would be Friday. As usual there is a lot happening to prepare for the event. First of all, we need to do grocery shopping to get all essentials to prepare a feast fit for kings and queens. For some reasons, we always eat barbecue meat or chicken on Eid. My christian cousins from my Mother's side of the family come over to help out. We do more talking than cooking though. That is why we sometimes end up eating past 3 PM.

 The men go to attend the prayer at the Mosque by 9 AM, all decked in their best outfit: A type of Sherwani outfit made of a long tunic and pants either in Bazin or cotton fabric. Once they are back, we exchange wishes. Some neighbors also drop over on their way back from the Mosque to wish us a happy Eid. Often we serve them Lakh, a wheat …
