Go Indie | Adopt Don't Shop

I have always had a soft corner for Indian street dogs. Be it little pups with the dreamiest of eyes, or the adult dogs who refuse to grow up, I love all furries out there. No matter how tough their lives have been, Indian street dogs will welcome you with all the warmth in their hearts, they will still carry a sparkle in their eyes. People who can't look beyond the 'street dog”' in them, don't know what they are missing out here!
Here are few of my favourite rescue cases that I have been involved with lately. Even though life has brought them down couple of times, these tough indies refuse to give up! All these beautiful stories are a reminder that every dog deserves a family, a home that they can call their own, a place where they will be adored and looked after, humans that will make sure they never sleep without a meal again.

It isn’t easy being a mother dog on the streets. The one in the above is called Mother.

Desi With A Twist: Last Minute Outfits For Indian Weddings

While having the time & luxury to shop is a privilege for some, but for many it's a task to spare that sort of time & can prove quite stressful!

I'm really fond of weddings! I get over excited when it comes to deciding the outfit & I like to plan ahead, but many a times I've had last minute wedding invitations that don't allow me enough time to even think of shopping! So, if like me you also have/ have had a last minute wedding invitation,don't panic because I've got you covered.

The key to last-minute outfits is making what you already own work for you! Hence, mix & match. I love mixing & matching pieces from my wardrobe to create new outfits, & I have always loved the results!

For the look in the pictures below, I wore the blouse that actually came with a saree that I bought last year & paired it up with cigarette pants which I got stitched from a local boutique for an Indian suit set.  I polished the look with matching Clutch, Jewellery & Golden Glitter Heels.

I had already worn the saree & the Indian suit to wedding ceremonies last year. I did not want to repeat the outfits, so I thought of mixing the two to create a new one!
Similarly, you can also pair the Shirt of your Indian Suit with the Skirt of your Lehenga, or an Embroidered Blouse of a Saree with a Plain Maxi or a Midi Skirt. Complete the look by adding a Dupatta & Indian Jewellery.

Don't be afraid to experiment, because creativity is your best skill!

I hope this post has given you some ideas! Let me know what you think in the comments :)
