Gone With The Wind

By November 12, 2013 , , , , , , , , , ,

Ever seen those Bollywood movies where the sultry heroine enters the scene with a soft breeze strategically blowing at her glossy mane and sari? (Think Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Na with her hair and sari fluttering in the breeze, even inside a classroom, setting Shah Rukh Khan's heart aflutter). Sadly, that's just the stuff of movies because reality paints a far less glamorous picture. It was a cold and blustery day when we decided to take these photos and no matter which way we stood, it was a lost cause...the wind was out to get us and make a bird's nest out of our hair!

In other news, our obsession with colored pants continues (see earlier post here). I've owned a pair of black jeggings from Uniqlo for a while, but a recent trip to the flagship store on Fifth Avenue allowed me to discover a whole new variety of colors - blue, red, pink, olive, brown, army green, purple, and many more. (On a side note, if you're ever in NYC and plan to go shopping, a visit to the flagship store of Uniqlo is a must. It's a huge store with bright, colorful displays and great prices for closet essentials). We went for a simple look here, pairing a white top with pants and accessories from the same color family. Richa has paired her white top with purple jeggings, while I wore an embellished peplum top with olive-colored jeggings.
