Last week was our third anniversary - I can’t believe it’s been three years already! Unlike last year, we were together this time (the pains of long distance relationships across borders!) so I wore something pretty to go out for dinner and drinks with my Moosh. We look some photos in Cubbon Park before the light faded and then strolled over to Social for cocktails and the arguably the best poutine in Bangalore. I felt rather festive in my burgundy velvet skirt and snowflake stockings from Tabbisocks - ‘tis the season after all! The best thing about anniversaries around Christmas is how joyous and festive everything is all around. I might post some photos from our Christmas celebrations later - we managed to dish up a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings but forgot to get any pics of it! In the meantime, I hope y’all are having a joyous, restful and much needed winter break ♥

Holiday season is upon us, which calls for a touch of luxe. I’ve teamed together with Redrebs to show you how to style a cosy yet chic daytime look that’s perfect for a daytrip or outing with friends and family. Focusing on the luxury segment, Redrebs carries gorgeous plus size eveningwear with a distinctly festive touch. I’d styled this gorgeous lace LBD from them for an evening look a while back, today I’m dressing down the most lightweight and exquisite silk jacket to show you how eveningwear can be made to work for daytime as well!

I’ve kept the look simple in monochrome with classic pieces that I rotate regularly in my wardrobe. One of my tricks to wearing an outfit in a single colour is layering textures and shades. Although I’m predominantly wearing blue (with hints of black) for this look, I’ve picked out the individual pieces to range from royal blue to teal and navy. While single shade looks can be absolutely breathtaking in their drama, mixing shades and textures makes for a more wearable iteration on the theme! When it comes to style, I’ve always taken inspiration from the costumey and the theatrical - because after all, what’s fashion without a hint of the outrageous? I feel that today’s look in black and blue draws on a lot of those elements while remaining dapper and comfy enough to spend the whole day in. My Redrebs shrug is definitely today, and I’ve chosen the rest of the pieces to complement rather than overshadow it. It’s one of those classic fashion rules that don’t need to be followed, but it’s also one of my top tips for pulling together an outfit! So whether you’re looking to glam up or dress down this holiday season, have a look at Redrebs’ collection, they’ll have you sorted no matter your style!

apparently Russian nihillist women of the 19th century “rejected crinoline and velvet, wore short ‘cropped hair and blue spectacles’ and preferred ‘scotch plaid’ to traditional overcoats.”

cropped hair, blue glasses and tartan? I need pictures of these bomb throwing style icons
