Audible.com

I always found the idea of listening to a book weird. I love the feeling of a paperback between my fingers, the rustle of pages, the smell of a well-worn familiar object that transports me to another land every time I pick it up. But most of all, I love to imagine the voice and appearance of the characters the way I want to. I thought listening to an e-book would be like watching a movie based on a book and thinking ‘that was nothing like the way I imagined it!’ That just leads to disappointment.

But when I read The Fault In Our Stars on Audible.com using my free trial, I loved it so much I thought I’d share it with you. The speaker modulates her voice in a way so realistic that it’s just as good as reading the physical book.faves 5

New Buy + Review: Enroute Black Wedges

I’ve been a flipkart regular for a while now but when they started to branch out to clothes and shoes, I was a little hesitant to try it out. I guess I was wrong because these bad boys have now become my favorite pair of wedges. Flipkart has always been great with delivery and timing. They have a number of brands for footwear and this particular one, I had never shopped from before. The name of the brand is enroute and they are pretty expensive. Luckily, flipkart offers various discounts and so I decided I had to get my hands on these. The heel is 4.9 inches, but since they’re wedges they’re absolutely comfortable.  These shoes were for Rs. 3999, but due to the discounts, I got them for Rs. 1,499! They are also true to size, so totally worth it!

#WWTBIW | Indian Ceremonies

Today’s WWTBIW is about dressing for Indian ceremonies. Our reader Simra requested this because she felt that most girls know how to style Western clothes, but are terrible when it comes to styling Indian clothes.

I’m going to show you what I would wear for different ceremonies of different grandeur- if you’re Indian, you’d understand. If you’re not, then let’s just say that Indians celebrate functions on varying scales of amplitude and pomp.

1. A Basic Indian Ceremony

The grandiosity in our dressing is proportional to how close we are to the one conducting the ceremony. This would be when the function is not being held on a grand scale, or when you’re attending a ceremony held by a far off relative or friend. The look would basically consist of a simple kurta and chudidar/ patyala, with some jewelry.

2. Slightly Grand

This would be when the ceremony is held by your own family or close relatives, but not too many people have been invited. You’d want to dress simple, yet look the part of a hostess. After all, it is your family’s function! I wore this cream Hakoba and silk Anarkali which I got stitched for my housewarming ceremony. The look should consist of a slightly grand outfit, with some matching earrings, necklace, and fancy footwear.

3. Grand during daytime

This would be when your close relatives are holding a ceremony and have called quite a number of people, so you’d want to look your best. I wore this to my cousin’s reception. This looks should be pure Indian, with matching jewelry and footwear.

4. Grand at night

This would be when you have to attend a function held by your close family members, at night. You can afford to incorporate Western elements into an otherwise Indian look, as I did. Pair it with some flashy earrings and nice footwear, preferably heels. I wore this outfit to my cousin’s Sangeet (the night before a wedding where all family members sing and dance together and what not).

5. Grandeur of epic proportions

Okay, so maybe I exaggerate. Hehe. This would be when it’s a ceremony held by a really close family member, or your own nuclear family, and there are a LOT of people called. You’d want to look really decked up and feel part of the family, yet stand out. And of course, you need to look the part of one of the hostesses too! You can afford to go all out here- grand clothing, heavy jewelry and footwear that match your clothes.

Tips:

1. Wear a bindi (a sticker placed on your forehead between your eyebrows) with all complete ethnic outfits, it completes them.

2.  DO NOT pair silver toned jewelry with clothes that have gold tinges on them, or vice versa. It clashes and makes the outfit look terrible. Select your jewelry according to the silver/gold tone of the outfit.

3. If you’re planning to wear big and fancy earrings, go easy on the necklaces, or avoid them completely. If you choose both fancy earrings and fancy necklaces, it makes the outfit look too garish most of the time.

4. If the function is held by your family, be prepared to do a lot of running around. Wear comfortable footwear. If you’re hell bent on wearing heels, carry a pair of flats to wear in case your feet get tuckered out.

5. You can carry clutches with all of the above outfits, just make sure they don’t take away the attention from your clothes. They must also match the over all colours in your outfit. Or else, match them with your footwear and accessories.

6. Choose colours according to the solemnity of the occasion. If the ceremony is solemn, choose earthy colours. If the ceremony is all out, choose bright bold colours.
