Outfit of the Day: Recently Shopped!!

by mehak on February 6, 2012

in Fashion

If you see me walking around Delhi with a creature who thinks he is in the North Pole , please dont laugh. The boy has moved to Delhi, (yes moved- no long distance anymore!!) and he insists on wearing a monkey cap, a sweater, and a jacket with the hood on everywhere we go (Somebody please tell him its almost warm now, compared to what we faced in January!!!!!). These Eskimo types from out of Delhi – they make me laugh !

So while the boy is dressed like an eskimo, this is what i am dressed as. This is one of my favourite times of the year- when the sun comes out during the day and provides just enough warmth, but there is still a very slight nip in the air for you to throw a light cotton jacket on. Its my Dilli the way i like it ! <3 <3 (Though now that the boy is also here-its my Dilli the way i love it  **Muahhh: Tweeety Kisss** )

Outfit Breakdown:

  • Grey Top with Cream Ruffles : Vero Moda Sale Rs 560/-
  • Black & White Striped Cape: Calvin Klein Rs 3500/- on sale
  • Dark Brown Tights (I survived winter in these- they are lined with fleece on the inside) : Rs 500/- from some random shop!
  • Wine colored Booties (From Dubai): Rs 750/-
  • Forever 21 Necklace from Dubai : Rs 250/-
  • Black Sequinned Bag (From Primark in Uk -Gifted)
  • My Blackberry (Cant live without this). I recently got 3 e-mails from readers asking me how i manage my time between blog, full time work, boy, wedding preparations, replying to emails etc. No credit to me- all credit to my BB!!!

We saw “The Descendants” the other day. George Clooner *Swoon*. Though he does look kind of old in the movie, George Clooney can always get me starry eyed and  swooney. The movie was okay- if you like emotional dramas you shall love it but it was a tad slow for my liking! In other news, i got up today with a big red spot inside my eye- totally matching my booties you see. Not that you needed to know any of this, but its freaking me out. The doc said i shouldnt worry and it shall go away in a day or two but me no liking the little red riding hood inside the eye!! Shoo! Go away red spot!

I love your outfit! That sweater is exactly the style of sweater that I love to live in. I am also a big fan of the red booties.

I’m happy for you that now you and the boy are closer!

You look very pretty Mehak, I like the outfit a lot – it has been accessorized very well :)

Reply

I February 7, 2012 at 5:12 am

OMG! You are TOTAL copycat! Why do you copy Iowagirleats so much??? The way u write your blog is a copy of how she writes… the fun manner in which u write… is all hers. “In other news”…Be a little original Mehak… use your OWN ideas!

Reply

mehak February 7, 2012 at 5:21 am

Lol..thanks for making me laugh early morning.. “In other news”-oh shocker i copied 3 words that are used by pretty much all writers/ bloggers/ magazines/ newspapers…haha!!!! I didnt know there was a copyright on “In other news”. As far as “the fun manner” in which i write”..Errmm..you do realise nobody can copy your “writing style” even if they try- everyone has a way or a flow of words which comes naturally to them. Try copying someones style, its harder than you think. Moreover my blog is about my life and it is personal.Unless another blogger has a boy in her life who feels like he is in the north pole i dont know what you are talking about….Karen from Makeup and beauty writes in this “fun” way too, will you say she copies her too??? :p :p
Oh and for other readers- Iowagirleats is a brilliant food blog. Do go check it out and let me know what you think!!!! Which reminds me- havent visited her in a while..shall drop in and say hi!

Reply

I February 8, 2012 at 8:38 am

Hmm… never thought that u’d care to post/reply to my comment. I’m a big fan of IGE and when i read ur post it sounded so much like her… But u were right about “nobody can copy your writing style”. My apologies! Have fun!

Reply

mehak February 8, 2012 at 8:45 am

Hey ,
It happens to everyone. I get people coming to me and telling me others are copying my posts /reviews when really its just a question of co-incidences and/or similar flow of words/ thoughts . I am the first person to admit that i totally adore Karen from makeup and beauty and shamelessly will try and emulate her blog if i had to :p Its just that even if i try, i cant !!!! You dont need to apologise, i published your comment because it was non abusive/ non spammy.All those kind of comments- negative or positive are more than welcome!!!

LOL! I dont envy her… i dont even know her… just came across her blog a few days back…looks interesting…

parveen February 7, 2012 at 5:41 am

jus adore ur style of vocabulary and dress..i dunno how u carry such elegance yet manage to make a statement..me, on the other hand, end up looking like a horrible faux pas in my attempts to look like a worthy person to my patients..guess, shud learn a lot from u !

Reply

Mehak February 7, 2012 at 5:52 am

Pleaseeeee I learn from other fashion bloggers myself. I was and still am a jeans n t shirt girl till I started reading other fashion blogs n taking some risks ! I am sure you r just exaggerating abt the faux pas : p

I looked through that Blogh and it is good no doubts!! But I don’t feel there is any similarity In the writing style at all!!! I think everyone who blogs gas their own style and no one can ‘copy’vocab and a sense of humor

Priti February 7, 2012 at 7:30 am

Hey!!! Have been a silent reader (lack of time, energy and willingness to type my comments) but have decided to do away with it and speak my mind. (Dont ask why suddenly today i felt this urge.. :) i got hit by an apple yesterday so probably got my eureka moment)
Many things to say but i will restrict to few (for starters)
1) Love ur blog. :) Keep it up gal!!!
2) Have based some of my recent purchases on your reviews and i must say my opinions on the product were similar to what you wrote. So hugssss and kisses :) Its nice to know the reviews (especially ur personal ones) are not influenced by external forces. Love u for that:)
3) And today u did not delete the accusatory comment above but responded well!! in decent language too….. Niceeeeeee
4) Finally, u cute :) And love ur lawn. For ,most of us Mumbaikars a lawn is synonymous with vacation farmhouses only :):) So the idea of staying in a house with lawn is super cool.

Reply

mehak February 7, 2012 at 8:44 am

Thanks priti, i wish more such apples hit your head!!! So glad the products are working for you!
Oh its a policy not to delete accusatory comments UNLESS they are abusive/ vulgar. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion right? Iv lived in Mumbai -lokhandwala!!! Yes lawn was a distant distant dream

Reply

Priti February 7, 2012 at 9:15 am

Agree.. We are entitled to our own views but I do know some bloggers who promptly delete comments which even hint towards negativity!!! Such a put off!!!
And Lokhandwala is a shoppers paradise nowadays :) Me from South Mumbai and i love my city but but wish i could take a stroll in lawns, sipping coffee, checking mails on BB, eyeing the cute neighbour etc etc (total HBO effect on me!!! i see such scenes in most chick flicks ) :)

Reply

mehak February 7, 2012 at 11:46 am

Haha i lovvvee South Bombay. OMG those cobbled street have some magic and charm in them ..
Yeah i know abt the HBO effect..for the longest time i was like -I want to walk to work and carry starbucks on the way and them bump into a cute boy. Except in Delhi, there is no starbucks, and*bumping into cute boys* can be replaced with *bumping into letchy men*…eww

Reply

Priti February 7, 2012 at 1:16 pm

u know u know, i did live the dream to an extent in US last year . Rushing to work in formal dress and high heels with Star bucks in hand. awesome climate amd wind in my face :) But i was in texas and those men showed no interest in a vertically challenged indian !!!!

Akshata February 7, 2012 at 7:58 am

mehak February 7, 2012 at 8:41 am

Haha Thanks Anita! You know what, iv considered it myself!!! But sometimes i feel like the brides dont get reall nice dresses so feel maybe its a risk?? Another reason i didnt apply was cos i bought all my outfits a really long time back, and i dont know if i wanna wear anything else!

Oops!! just saw the ad running on your blog too!! uff! feel silly :P … and yup agree on the outfits point. BTW, thansk to ur “where to buy bridal stuff” posts…have gone and busted my card shopping for “stuff to wear at other people’s shaadis” ;). Hubby will have a major coronary burst if he sees the hidden shopping bags in my car! by the way, anychance you know a good boutique near Vasant Kunj? I have one in Lajpat Nagar, but its too far for me …and i need to offload the shopping bags super super super quick!

BTW: I got a similar thing from that DKNY cozy jacket video u had posted..got it from AND..and its quite neat. I kept modelling in front of my mirror trying out various styles. This hoodie u’ve worn also looks similar.
