Life too short to wear boring jewellery

Accessories are the exclamation point of a woman
                                                                                    – Michael Kors

I am a huge fan of minimalism but I am kinda addicted to jewellery. The more edgy the better.  Studs, skull, blades, gothic heart, synth  are few of my favorites little wonders.

I came across the wonderful map necklaces from Olive Yew  and instantly fell in love with them. Life is indeed to short to wear boring jewellery. I love personalized jewellery they are perfect for developing signature style.

Adding statement jewellery to a simple outfits upgrades the look in an instant. Your basic wardrobe won’t look so basic when paired with these accessories. 

As a firm believer in 5 piece french wardrobe philosophy, I rarely indulge in my tinny jewellery addiction. But when I do, I go for interesting pieces that are versatile yet unique on their own.

The best thing about it is lasts forever, and for me jewellery are mementos, they keep memories alive. Jewellery shopping is painless and so much fun.

Meet my favorite travel companion

Books are uniquely portable magic  
                                                                  – Stephen King 

Traveling is awesome and exhilarating experience. Going to great places and seeing the vastness and wealth of nature never fail to amaze me. Well long distance travel is often boring especially if you do it alone. Travelling alone can be challenging. Spending time with oneself will teach you a lot about yourself. 

Image result for reading and traveling quotes

I hate sitting idle and while travelling there is ample time to do nothing. Reading is the best option that I love. I generally buy new books before a journey and read them though out the journey. 

Books are my best friend and the best part, reading the book again always reminds me of the trip I read the book on for the first time.

Though I prefer a book I can hold on to, you can opt for a brand new kindle if you prefer so. Here are some reason why  you should consider  reading while traveling.

# Way better than sitting idle and staring in the ether. Instead Travel Read Learn  and Eat Pray Love.

# Saves you form the persistent unsavory travel companions that you may come across.   

#A reason to stay away from you smart phone and  messages. Get away from the phone office you deserve a vacation.

#Unplug from the social media and banish FOMO. 

#The perfect opportunity for a social media detox. Facebook, instagram, snapchat and twitter will survive, without you checking on them every hour. 

#Great time to get started with your reading list, the one you have been putting together for a really long time. 5 books that taught us to be badass  are great reads if you don’t have a reading list yet.

#Well for once your phone won’t run out of battery and you will be able to make call when you actually need it. I am sure you have had your phone battery misbehaving when you need it the most.

Black is forever

My love for the color black is unsurpassed by any other colour. It is my go to colour. When in doubt go Black. Back to Black .People around me are forever asking me to wear other colors , anything other than black.

The importance of the colour black when it comes to fashion and my wardrobe is immense. 

 

You can’t go wrong with The Little Black Dress has been a wardrobe staple and rightfully so. They are versatile and flattering on almost everyone. Easy to accessories with statement neck pieces and colorful scarves.The uniform project involved wearing a LBD for 365 day consecutively but creatively while not repeating the same outfit. Black is one of the best colour for the monochrome look followed closely by white and blue.

Black and white  is another classic combination that is always trendy. The combination to these two neutral colour is striking and suitable for every occasion starting from formal to casual.  

 

Apart from that black looks good with a wide range of colors . From pastels to fluorescent and several bright tones can be easily balanced with the colour black. Needless to say   pencil skirt, blazer, jeans, shirt, t-shirt, tank and a pair of semi-formal pants all in the colour black is my wardrobe staple. 

Well , when it comes to accessories the belt, the bag and the shoe, black defiantly dominates the field. All these are must for formal wardrobe.

 

Leather jackets and blazers looks sharp and classy all the time and more so in the colour black. Edgy looks are best when done in black so does studs and chains. 

Black colour gives the best slimming effect too. 

For some people black is boring but for me black brings out the best in every colour and outfit. What is your go to colour?

Rock the Choker Trend

 

The trend is highly popular right now, with celebs like Taylor swift and Kendall Jenner sporting the choker to accentuate some of their signature looks.  Popularly considered to be revival of the 90s fashion trend the choker has been conceived long ago.

The origin of the popular choker dates back to thousands of years back to the Sumerian Empire in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. In those days the choker necklaces were considered protective ornaments. They were generally made of gold or lapis and vested with power.

Choker gained popularity during renaissance as a stylish accessory and were coveted among the royals in the late 19th century .During the late 19th century women in part of Germany and Austria used choker to mask lumps on the neck cause by goitre. While in few parts of the world, simple ribbon choker were symbolic of prostitution. The unprecedented notion changed when the choker graced the necks of ballerinas.

It is a trend that has survived the fall of the ancient empires and the evolutionary era of renaissance and surfaced time and again through the 20th century. The choker have evolved from a protective necklaces to stylish pieces, to being used to mask flaws ,  to being the symbol of prostitution in some parts of the world to being called “dog collars” during the 1920s  and 30s.

During 1920s and 30s choker were made of velvet ribbon and pearls with a central decal.

The 1970s rise of hippies’ culture saw the revival of the choker once again. Pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera advocated the choker trend through the 90s. This time the choker evolved in to the infamous plastic tattoo choker and simple ribbon chokers.

Today the choker is available is several forms, from simple ribbons to leather neckties to jewel encrusted collars.Big players likes Givenchy and Chloe have been featuring them on the runway and top jewellery designers are releasing new designs frequently.

Suffice to say the choker is a statement piece which will never go unnoticed. The choker draws attention to the neck and quite boldly so. It is undeniable bold and chic.

Rocks the trends like bloggers do.

1 Layer it with other necklaces – Take layering to the next level.

2 Wear it solo – Give the choker the glory it deserves.

3 Tie it like blogger do . 

4 Wear it with a edge. 

I am loving this trend …
