She’s too skinny, she’s too fat, she’s too flat.
She’s too curvy, have you seen her clothes?
Have you seen her hang out with boys she barely even knows?
This one is a gold digger. That one only works. She can never get married unless she wipes of that smirk.
Doesn’t she know she’s a girl? She can’t behave like this.
Yes, she knows. She knows who she is.
She is she. She is herself. She owns who she is and she loves herself. You cannot change that with your tiny mind and small self-esteem. Let her be, let her breathe. Live your own life and respect her individuality; because she is she.

In a country that claims to have gained independence 70 years ago, when will it’s women finally feel free?
Lace is elegant and feminine, yet can be styled to look super edgy and bold. This is why lace is here is stay…
So I’ll be honest – growing up, I thought lace was tacky and definitely not something I would ever wear. I think it had something to do with a certain Hindi film I had seen as a child, in which the lead actress was wearing lace dresses through the film. Now I know that most of us aspired to look like those actresses, but no, not me. Even as a child, I didn’t want to be caught dead in the outfits our early 90’s heroines wore! And so began my aversion to lace.
Then one fine day, I grew up and realised that I could in fact wear lace and style it very, very, very differently from what I had seen. This shift I think came about when my obsession with Vogue (magazine) started. I was 15 years old and in boarding school, where the scope of being any sort of stylish was extremely limited. I remember my friends and I carrying numerous issues of Vogue and other fashion magazines back to school after the holidays. We would then cut out our favourite items from the magazines and make fashionable collages to stick inside our lockers! That was our fashion fix. We aspired to one day get out of school and own all of those pretty things stuck just above the mirror in our lockers.
My locker, surprisingly, or not, was full of women wearing beautiful lace garments, or women carrying bags lined with lace and even lacy lingerie! Suddenly, I loved everything made of lace.
So given my obsession with lace since the age of 15, I thought it was only appropriate that my first fashion post be about lace.
Lace has been around for ages, and I think it’s here to stay. That’s one of the reasons I never hesitate before buying anything made of lace, even if it is slightly expensive. I know that I can use it for a long time to come, so it’s well worth it. Lace is elegant, dainty and feminine, yet it can be styled to look edgy and bold. Here’s how I worked a lace skirt and top.
