Maroon Blush


Thanks to a college assignment I went 'Trend Spotting' to Karol Bagh Market (In New Delhi, India) yesterday, there wasn't much of any trend to spot but it was lots of fun! It was Delhi Metro zindabad!


I've always loved wearing blazers  ... of all kinds. It's really interesting how they started of strictly as part of formal wear but designers and trends have lapped up and played with this classic piece of clothing in all sorts of ways, season after season. It's been made short, fitted, over-sized, long, ruffled and even boyfriend-ed!
Even when worn casually, it always adds a put-together and chic look to any outfit. They are definitely my go-to pieces for days when I don't know what to wear.



The ruffling detail on this jacket/wannabe blazer won my heart, I used the belt to further accentuate the ruffles :)


I never got the chance to tell you guys that a few days ago I met up with the lovely Tanvi of The Fabulous Life of the Not so Rich and Infamous, she is one of the most inspiring and genuine (not to mention stylish) women I've met and we chatted endlessly about fashion, style, blogs, bloggers and life. Saying that it was a pleasure meeting her is an understatement! Check out her post about our little rendevouz here.

Thanks for stopping by,

Love

  2. Trend-spotting in Karol Bsgh? ! Trend-spotting in Sarojini Nagar, Khan Market, Janpath, even one of the big malls would have been much more productive.

    But, yes, blazers are wonderful! Isn't that outfit too warm now for Delhi though?

    Delhi is still a lil chilli, we have lovely sunny afternoons though! I can't wait for spring-summer to wear pretty dresses!
