Fret Not Wo/Man, You’ve Got Plenty to Wear!

Its a common problem which each one of us has faced at one time or the other. The closet is practically overflowing with clothes, so much so that in extreme cases articles literally start tumbling out the moment you open the its door! But yet there is that perpetual lament, ‘ I’ve got nothing to wear!’

Lets analyse the problem a bit and look for some solutions-

  • Throw away all those items of clothing or even accessories you’ve not worn for a year. As a general rule of the thumb, for every new outfit you buy, discard one old item of clothing. Donate your surplus clothes to someone who really needs them. De-cluttering your wardrobe will also make your belongings clearly visible making it easier for you to choose your clothes.Further, any missing essentials of your wardrobe will stare you in the face.So go ahead, spruce up your wardrobe with a fresh new look with fashionable updates from the latest trends in vogue!
  • The problem of plenty!! Very often, I’ve seen many of my friends, and myself too as victim to this.We have so many clothes that we are literally spoilt for choice! ”Should I wear this ensemble to the party or that blue dress or maybe that grey trouser suit?” Your mind is in constant debate, and when unable to decide, perhaps end up with ” I’ve got nothing (suitable) to wear, I need to buy something new.” Come on, its time to realize that you have enough clothes already, take out their moneys worth by actually wearing them and stop being a hoarder.
  • Have you ever heard of mix and match? By investing in some clever separates which you can easily mix and match will help you sport a new outfit each day of the year! Try to have a mix of classics, solid colours and some prints. Bling can be added through jewellery, bags, scarves,belts, watches along with other accessories. For example, by simply changing the blazer and making slight tweaks to your hairstyle along with your regular pair of jeans will give you an entirely new look. Just replacing a pair of pumps with stilettos or wedge heels changes the very attitude with which you carry yourself! Wearing a bright hued lip colour as opposed to a pale one immediately makes one look different, even though the clothes may still be the same. I am sharing with you this picture by Tumblr for added inspiration.

Fashion Forward – Father and Son !

IMG_0382Look at this fabulous denim shirt ! This is no ordinary shirt. It’s a Levi’s denim shirt.But that is quite obvious ,isn’t it? So what’s so special? The special thing about this shirt is that its a Levi’s denim shirt that’s almost 34 years old!This shirt was bought by my husband from a mall in the year 1980 when he went on a college trip to Singapore.What is most amazing is that my son (who is quite choosy about his clothes) enjoys wearing this very shirt and often wears it to college! He wears it as a shirt and at times also as a light jacket over a T-shirt. Fashion repeats itself and denim shirts and jackets are always in vogue.This Levi’s denim is a classic, and seemingly is getting better with age just like vintage wine.

My son came back from a college trip yesterday and needless to say he had taken this favourite Levis denim shirt with him.When he came back , I washed it and my husband offered to iron it for me ( I must say he did a fabulous job, the shirt still looks new). it was while he was ironing the shirt , he told me that he had bought it in 1980! This gave me the immediate idea that i must write a post dedicated to this vintage Levi’s denim shirt.

Some possessions that we have ,may be simple, but give so much joy because of the happy memories associated with them.
