#Ideastory: Party


I’m throwing a party, she says,
and you’re not invited.

Fine, he replies,
Then be sure not to send me the bill.


Your secrets,
stir the emptiness inside me
Like gunshots in the middle of the night.

I Wear: The Inkblot Test

So here’s the first look from my shopping spree last month. Mid-week, welcoming in my favorite season of the year and stepping out for a casual evening. It’s really simple and easy.

First, we start with the star of the outfit, the top I picked up on my spree. I fell in love with the inkblot print and chose this short, loose square-cut top from the plethora of options (kurta, dress, singlet). It’s a light cotton that was standing stiff on its first outing but will probably lose its starch over washes and be drapey instead (that sounds better than ‘fall limply’, doesn’t it? :-) ). It’s not sleek or sexy but it looked (and is!) so comfortable, I just had to own it!

These were paired with the new classic blue jeans I picked up early in the month (having decided to quit being in denial about my old jeans that have been 2 sizes too small for me all winter). It’s such a pleasure to be able to breathe. And never mind the itty-bitty-pretty and unreliable sandals, I was continuing my ‘comfort-0ver-chic’ attitude. These zebra-printed babies (seen before here) are kitcshy but so comfortable!

And that…pretty much…was it! Plenty of talcum powder, a dab of nude lipgloss, I ditched my handbag for a few notes stuffed into my mobilephone cover. And I was ready for a cool summer evening out in town!
