Hello my lovely readers! How are you all today on this glorious evening? A quick update on my life:
- I have recently been trying really hard to be incredibly amazing at chess. I have improved,
- There was an article released just today about me in the newspaper, talking of my recent shoe collection début and my knowledge of the fashion industry. It had me blushing.
- I have rekindled my love for denim.
- I have grown an unlikely obsession with the classical music genre. I will talk of that in a later post, however.
I am British born with roots all over the east. Growing up, I loved the cultural aspects of the world; the different fashions and traditions fascinated me. I honestly very much dislike the idea of only embodying fashions from one culture, no matter where you are from; I believe we should embody as much as we can, experience as much as we can to be discover who we truly are.
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view – until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” – Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee.
Whilst looking at a copy of the Khaadi SS12 lookbook, I was instantly inspired by the white dresses, brightened with pops of neon colour splashed everywhere but the dress. I took a leaf out of the Khaadi lookbook and took my own spin on the trend. I picked out the white Generation dress with intricate lace detailing and added some colour with nautical striped leggings. I satisfied my rekindled obsession for denim with an oversized denim clutch bag and matching denim flats.
I must mention briefly the antique silver cuff I wear in this outfit. It a family heirloom which has been passed down through generations dating right back to the Mughal empire! I have an obsession with the Mughal empire; everything they did just fascinated me, and do not get me started on their stunning jewellery!
Perhaps this outfit is not everybody’s exact cup of tea, but I feel extremely lucky to be able to express myself through embodying clothing from lots of different cultures. I very strongly recommend you all to try something like this, whether it be stemmed from Mongolian tribes or Russian dolls; all that really matters is embracing different cultures and letting it express who you are.
That’s my idea of fashion, the ideal form of expression.
