Turtlenecks and Skater Skirts!

Hey All!

Starting the week with a fresh OOTD and a fresh perspective.

If you caught the previews in the last post (look here), you know that we have a guest blogger today. And she is here with a really cool versatile outfit. So without any of my jibber-jabber, as promised, presenting the affable Amrita Chopra.



Before we embark on this fashion journey, I believe it would be best that you know a little about your co-traveller (ME!!!). Let`s play a game. You have to find out which ones are true about me:

1.       My Name is Chopra, Amrita Chopra

2.       As a kid I used to play school in the garden and teach my flower pots - all the while wearing high heels borrowed/stolen from aunties visiting my mum. And my class wouldn’t end until I was found with the borrowed/stolen high heels or until one of my pupils would crack (no homework = thrashing).

3.       My first job was to sell ice up in the Himalayas but I had to give up that job due to global warming.

4.       I am an Internet "explorer" who tries to explore/copy codes from the Internet and paste it to  places that make the multi-million dollar projects run. In short, I am a software engineer.

5.       I came face to face with my fashionation…errr..fascination to fashion when I realized that I can guess brands just by looking at the clothes (Call it a blessing or a curse, I have it.). 

6.       I feel confident enough to move mountains when I dress up real nice.

7.       I am heading to Mount Kilimanjaro next month, in the nicest dress I have, to see how confident I really am.  

8.       I believe it`s going to be a fun journey with you by my side!!!!!!

All aboard!!!!

No, the photos are not from the 70`s in case the turtlenecks made you think so. And yes, turtlenecks are officially back in the fashion! In fact, the turtlenecks were never out of fashion. I always loved how you can make them work for office formals, and when you get off and have to rush to a party, all you have to do is don a jacket or a sweater and Voila!!! You are ready!!!

Noticed the change of footwear??? Well, I tried to kill two birds with one stone. The boots give me a dressy look whereas the sling back sandals give me more of a laid-back casual look. That’s all, lovelies. Stay pretty and keep experimenting.

So, that's all for now. Join us here later and keep spreading smiles!!


  1. This was such a fun read! I'm guessing the thing about selling ice in the Himalayas wasn't true?! Amrita looks gorgeous and I love both versions of the outfit. x

    1. Haha! I think you guessed it right. :-)
      I am glad you liked the outfit!

    2. Thank you so much for the support as sometimes appreciation can make you move mountains :-) And yes, you both are half way there. There are actually two false statements. One down one more to go!

  2. You are nothing usual���� Admire your fashion sense! ��

  3. How impressive you're a software engineer! I like your outfit here; skater skirts can be so versatile :)
