{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} The Vintage Soul - I

Hello my sweet people.

I cannot explain how elated I'm to present you with " The Vintage Soul " series. The feeling of finally executing a concept after visualising it for over 6 months is inexplicable. As a blogger - creating unique & visually striking content is the only passion and i have been living and breathing this series in my mind since last August . All i needed was an old museum or a restaurant with vintage vibes . Unfortunately , due to a BMC stay on shoots in museums it could not commence when i was in Bombay last October. In the same month when i returned to Johannesburg, i was frantically searching for museums because A) I love museums and B) I wanted to explore the possibility of shooting in one! The dream came true when i booked my visit to Lindfield Victorian Museum which is a house museum  . The owner of the house who curated this museum with so much love over the years along with her mom is a sweet lady - Katherine Love. Thanks to her and my favorite girls at SLRPHOTOSA - this editorial comes to reality  !

But wait ! It wasn't a piece of cake still.

As luck would have it, load shedding was at its peak that week and scheduled outage at the museum was 4pm which we got to know only when we reached there. We started our shoot at 3.30 pm and finished one look by 4 pm which you will see in Part 2.  Luckily got a few shots during the remaining minutes before load shedding and secretly wishing load shedding would never happen but it did. This look that you see here was shot with the help of a "torch light" provided by Katherine and some sunlight peeking in the dark victorian style home. How we wished there was light but we were very pleased with the results nonetheless as we also made use of the amazing under-construction outdoors which Katherine thought weren't upto the mark.  We thought it was "rustic" and she nodded almost in amazement - Rustic , i see  !  It was a fabulous all girls crew with Sasha & Vanessa from SLRPHOTOSA behind the lens and Katherine kindly helping us with little things throughout the house- such as moving a pile of books which she thought wouldn't be perfect for our shot even though we were ok with it - its like we had a mother figure making sure everything looked neat ! As i always say - there is never anything impossible if you set your mind to it and " The Vintage Soul" series is an example.

Hope you love it as much as we loved shooting this . Cant wait to hear from you in my comment box. Also don't forget to follow me on my insta and Facebook pages along with twitter! Lets get to know each other more !

{F.A.S.H.I.O.N} Today's headlines

Hey lovely people.

Are you someone who starts your day craving for fresh headlines ? I have  been thinking of all the wild news that surrounds us everyday. While most of it is facts and figures or incident reporting , increasingly its opinionated headlines that create a furore. Competition for a spicy tabloid has taken the game of modified/ inferred news to an obnoxious level. Add to this, social media discussions especially on Facebook pages and twitter. While social media would've united the world in many cases  , it is also gradually spreading hatred with negative opinions being exaggerated by the common man . In the end , its not you who takes the cake - but the political agenda + paid journalism who laugh at their master plan and applaud their skills to generate charged up tweets and messages via the common man! And let us not forget the biased messages doing the rounds on WhatsApp- they disarm men of their common sense and judgement . Because these messages are controversial in nature and perpetuate feelings of betrayal and discrimination- People are silently becoming agents of negativity thus also affecting their own mental peace. The sooner they realise , the better. It'll be nicer to participate in your personal wellness or wellness of the society which will naturally evict all the negative emotions spread through paid media! Its time we take charge of our own thoughts and opinions and not be carried away by forwards!

Now coming to the outfit- this is actually a black dress . Most of you thought it was a skirt. I wore my favourite blouse from the previous blogpost over this dress to give it vintage vibes. Also, finally happy to have my pair of black PVC pumps - though mine are shaded rather than clear with silver coloured kitten heals . Don't forget to comment if you like the look <3 coming="" more="" next="" p="" posts="" themed="" up="" vintage-="">

{ F.A.S.H.I.O.N } Bon Sens

We have always agreed with the idea of a crisp white shirt & Blue denims being the ultimate Combination ever - almost as if it were "Fashion"-common sense.

Turns out- common sense ( Bon Sens is french for common sense) is just not common.
It looks like a harmless word , but in reality it may lead to wrong decisions.

For example, I expect a certain behaviour from a certain someone because its "common sense" but end up being completely surprised in reality. The fact is common sense stems from our personal experience and every person has different experiences. On the basis of this experience -derived common sense , i make certain assumptions about the person and end up being disappointed when their reaction deviates from what i expected. And then i make another assumption - " This person lacks common sense" and there i go totally wrong ! Because -  who has ever defined common sense or its limitations !

And so, I think its best not to assume and concur basis our own "common sense " to judge anyone. A healthy discussion is all it takes to hear everyones views and understand that every person is unique and hence has a Unique common sense - Ironic much ;)

But we all agree on the "White shirt + Blue denim" combination right ? :D

Oh, but its not white here - its cream. I try to mix a lot of 80s elements these days  .  Those Matte gold earrings and  gold buttons on my blouse add the vintage touch ! These were the same gold buttons i used to cringe at when my mom would make me wear tops with these :D . How choices change! I wouldn't be surprised if decades down the line i go back to that phase! Anyhow,  I thought it'd be nice to do a super relatable and super "common" look on the blog which most of you can wear with a twist of your own ! So how will you accessorise this look??? Always happy to hear more from you <3 p="">
