HUGE SAROJINI NAGAR CLOTHES HAUL!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 13th April 2014

Hello everyone!

Sarojini Nagar hauls are my favorite! You can find amazing clothes at throw away prices! Its almost unbelievable! I will be showing you what I got from Sarojini recently. This huge haul is a result of a few different trips to Sarojini. Also, I went to Sarojini on a Monday! The market stays closed on Mondays but when I went for the first time, I found that the majority of shops were open. There are also bundles of clothes on the floor and the sellers shouting 3 for 100 or 10 rupees each! Cant believe it right? However, it takes a lot of effort and time to rummage through the endless bundles and find a few things you may like. But, it is definitely worth it because I sure found some very interesting pieces!

I also bought shoes, bags and jewelry but I plan to do a separate shoe haul and another accessories haul, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Let’s start with what I bought on a “regular” day :

Image

Yellow and Hot Pink Button Downs with Collar Studs – Rs. 175/- each

Image

Peplum Shirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Blue and White Top – Rs. 150/-

Image

Black and White Striped Shirt with Skull Buttons – Rs. 150/-

Image

Coral Shirt with Gold Studs – Rs. 200/-

Image

Blue Cold Shoulder Top with Collar Studs – Rs. 200/-

Image

Green Sequined Crop T-Shirt – Rs. 150/-

Image

Black T-Shirt with Gold Studs – Rs. 150/-

Image

Corset – Rs. 150/-

Image

Lace Skirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Burgundy Hi-Low Skirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Gold Sequinned Skirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Camouflage Shirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Grey Bodycon Dress – Rs. 200/-

And now for the really fun part!

Image

Image

Image

Image

All of these 4 were only Rs. 50/- each!

Image

Sheer Maxi Skirt – Rs. 35/-

Image

Green Cropped Top – Rs. 35/-

Image

Sheer Hi-Low Skirt – Rs. 35/- I intend to cut the black ruffles off.

Image

Silver One Shoulder Dress – Rs. 10/-

Image

Shirt – Rs. 10/-

Image

Grey Shirt Jacket – Rs. 10/-

Image

Animal Print Top – Rs. 10/-

Unbelievable right? You have to remember that some of these clothes may be used/worn previously. Please wash them thoroughly before wearing. They may not fit well or need some altering but then again it is not a huge loss even if they don’t!

This is it for my clothes haul. A shoe haul and an accessories haul is going to be up soon!

Please go to the “Outfits Of The Day” category to see these clothes in action!

10 Fashion Blunders To Avoid!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 5th January 2014

First of all, Happy New Year to all of you lovely people! I hope you had an amazing and safe start. I cannot believe its 2014 already. I am sure I am going to keep writing 2013 everywhere for a few months before proof reading! 😛

The internet is flooded with inspiration everywhere. But, there are just some times when you need to know what you ought not to do. I will be listing a few of my personal fashion pet peeves and I hope you find them useful! Also, I don’t mean to offend any of you. If you like to do any/all of these things then it is your own choice. For those of you who want to know some of my tips on dressing up, keep reading further :

1. Miss Color Overload :

Now this might just be me but too much color is off putting and distracting. It takes away from the personality and all your eyes can focus on is everything else covering our body. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you should stick to boring neutrals but learn to bring out a color in your outfit and rock it like you own it. If you’re shy then you can play up your look with your accessories. If you really love color and don’t want any neutrals, stick to pastels and chiffon. It looks amazingly feminine and ethereal.

For eg. Pair a bright colored blouse with neutral pants or vice versa. Pair a neutral blouse with a neutral skirt and add pop accessories. Pair mint green palazzos with a peachy tank. The possibilities are endless!

2. Miss Matchy-Matchy :

You don’t want to be covered in all matching pieces! It is always better to have some contrasting elements in your whole outfit. Something that shows your personality off. However, monochrome and black & white are huge trends and look very sophisticated when done right.

For eg. Black palazzo pants with a white top, black blazer and black shoes. If this is too safe/boring for you then add a bright belt and match your handbag to that!

3. Miss Lovely Handles  :

Love handles are not lovely to the slightest! If they’re showing, they can ruin your entire look. If you suffer from them then keep that muffin top tucked away in high waisted clothing. High waisted clothes bring attention to the smallest part of your waist and look very feminine and flattering on all body types. Just make sure it inot too tight.

For eg. Wear a beautiful high waisted skater skirt ( A line skirt ) with your blouse tucked it. The loose silhouette of the skirt will take away from a heavier bottom and not divulge that muffin top.

PS. If you suffer from a muffin top then please devote some time to fitness. It not only looks unpleasant but also contributes to diseases like diabetes.

4. Miss Poster Girl :

Please avoid things that flash the brand name as the main attraction factor. You don’t want to be a walking talking free advertisement of a brand. I see so many women with fake “Louis Vuitton” bags. Learn to combine pieces that show off who you are and don’t take away from your personality. Wearing flea market stuff or thrifted items isn’t cheap in the slightest way but trying to be who are not is.

5. Miss Look At My Cleavage :

Showing too much skin is never sexy, it just looks desperate. There are many ways to show off your beautiful curves without having to show too much skin. Showing cleavage isn’t wrong altogether but there is a time and place for it. Also, a good rule of thumb is to maintain a balance which means you are either showing a lot of leg or cleavage.

6. Miss Lousy Fit :

You never want to look like you just draped a curtain around yourself and left the house! If you’re on the curvier side then wearing baggy clothing can counteract your objective to look slimmer. Focus on your favorite parts of your body. If its your waist then cinch it in with a belt. Over sized or “boyfriend” clothes can look very relaxed and sexy if done right. Keep one element of your outfit on the loose side and style your look around it.

For eg. Wear a fitted tank or tee with boyfriend jeans and add brogues/minimalist heels for an androgynous look yet maintaining femininity.

7. Miss Disco Ball :

Sequins can not only look sexy but sophisticated. Again, focus on one element and let it do the talking. If you’re wearing a blingy dress then wear understated shoes. Same way, if you’re wearing blingy shoes then wear a beautiful simple dress. Also, don’t even get me started on wearing sequins during the daytime in the sunlight. It is just too much! If you’re really want to take your look up a notch then bling it out with accessories like a striking statement ring and an eyeball grabbing necklace.

For eg. Pair a sequinned blazer with a neutral top and pants. You can add a statement ring if you want.

8. Miss Tights Are Pants :

This is a very personal thing. Many women have no issues in wearing tights as pants but I have strong feelings against it. Camel Toe? Really? You don’t want to attract attention for all the wrong reasons. Plus tights as pants is highly unforgiving unless you have legs to die for! In my opinion tights are fine as long as your booty is covered. If you do like to wear your tights as pants then all power to you!

Blair Waldorf was right! Tights are not pants!

9. Miss Puddly Shoes :

Subconsciously, your shoes are the first thing people notice about you. Always clean or polish your shoes before leaving the house. Of course you might be caught in a miss hap some time or you may step in a puddle, but try to maintain good looking feet as much as possible. Especially during summer, when you wear cute open toe shoes to show off a beautiful pedicure.

10. Miss Print All Over :

Mixing prints is tricky but when done right can look really sophisticated. Make sure you stay in the same color scheme and not mix over bearing prints. A good and easy way to start is by pairing a printed top with printed shoes. When you feel confident enough you can move onto mixing your bottoms and tops.

Always remember to be confident. Confidence is sexy and will help you pull off any look with ease. Just remember not to be egoistic or over confident.

Also, even if you do make one of these “blunders”, just smile and let it go. Its only temporary and you can always look better the next day. Take inspiration from various blogs, videos, magazines, newspapers etc. A good way is to cut out pictures of outfits that you like and stick them on the door of your closet or just create a board. This way you can always look at the pictures for ideas while getting ready!

It is always handy to carry a few safety pins with you at all times to quickly rectify any unexpected wardrobe malfunction.

Also, take advantage of every single day to dress up in your best clothes! Get out of the house looking like you are about to meet the love of your life that day, add a little pep in your step and flash those pearly whites! You will be the most attractive girl all the time!

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful.

Here are some of the items that I picked up and loved! ❤

Image

Red and Animal Print Flats ( On Sale ) – Rs. 400 ( $6.51* )

Image

Red Satin Studded Pumps ( On Sale ) – Rs. 250 ( $4.07* )

So this is it for my haul. I love whatever I found to bits!

Now I will share with you some of my tips and tricks to shop wisely at markets like these :

1.  ALWAYS carry cash! Flea market sellers do not accept credit cards. There are some showrooms as well that may accept credit cards but it is always safer to carry cash. And, carry notes in small denominations of Rs. 10, 20, 50, 100.

2. Put your bargaining skills to test. The seller will usually start with a price of his choice. Quote half of that and then you can fix the deal somewhere in the middle,

3. Be a good negotiator.

4. Have patience. There will be many duds but to find the gems you will have to keep digging.

5. Keep an open mind. You will usually end up buying things that you did not even think about getting.

6. Be reasonable with yourself. It is easy to lose your mind and be overwhelmed with the sheer volume of choice. Examine each item and ask yourself if you really see yourself wearing it. Don’t just buy everything!

7. Check! Check! Check! Check each item you are willing to purchase for holes, cuts, stains etc. Sometimes they also stock used items for sale. Make sure you check whatever you purchase inside out. If there is a small stain that you are willing to compromise with, you can usually ask for a better deal.

8. DO NOT go on the weekends. It is so crowded that you probably will not be able to see things you like anyway!

9. Go during the morning hours as the sellers are usually very superstitious about their first income of the day. They believe the whole day’s business depends upon how good/bad their first income of the day is. So, they are willing to let go of items at a cheaper rate.

10. Carry a big cloth bag and stuff your things in it. The sellers will give you tiny plastic bags and if you don’t have your own big bag you will find yourself trying hard to manage several little bags.

11. Take care of your belongings. In places like these, there are many instances of pick-pocketing, stealing etc. So, make sure all your cash / phone etc are stored in a zip lock bag chained to your body.

12. Look for trendy items. Sarojini Nagar Market is famous for selling on-trend pieces for unbeatable prices.

13. Take a person you trust along with yourself to help you make better decisions. But, remember to take someone whose choice matches yours or you may end up regretting bringing that person.

14. Have an idea of your shape and body. There are no trying rooms so try on what you can over your clothes and ask your friend to take your picture so you can see how it looks on you.

15. Do not even think of wearing heels. Wear something very comfortable. There will be a lot of walking and rummaging through stuff so make sure you are wearing something you feel free in.

16. The market usually opens at around 10:30 a.m -11:00 a.m and closes at 8:30 p.m – 9:00 p.m. It is closed on Mondays.

I hope you enjoyed this post.
