Wrapped in Gingham

by

I’ve loved Gingham for the longest time. Plaids, checks appealed to me more than floral back then and after a brief love affair with floral, I find myself going back to loving Gingham again. And I don’t even mind the number of clothes I have in the same print, in the same color as long as the design is different. And this top – which is a wraparound top, is my current favourite as it has everything that I love – wide neckline, bows, ruffles and of course the Gingham print. To tell you the truth, I was torn between getting this top in a different pattern and a different color but I guess your personal preference comes in your way more often than you’d like and you’d succumb to it eventually. Shopping is also a test of will power I’d say. I sit for hours, comparing prints, comparing different items with a calculator in my screen before I decide to take the plunge and checkout. I just came back from a bit of a weekend spree where I spent almost 2 hours in every store trying everything that I liked until I really felt bad for the girls helping me in the store and apologised to them for my indecisiveness. But I felt they were more than happy to help me get something different that I would be happy with. I must say that today I got lucky and had someone help me decide but sometimes when I’m shopping alone – which is 90% of the time as I shop online all the time, I just let my urge decide the best for me. And with Chicwish so far, I’ve never minded a single purchase.

Understated Elegance

I like winters because I love knitwear a lot, but then I feel the cool Winter weather also prohibits me from wearing dresses and skirts as much as I would want to – which leaves me with very less option to create chic clothing styles and rather only clothe myself in denims and knitwear and coats. So while I’ve still had the chance before the weather turns nippy, I’ve decided to create a look that I feel is perfect for this weather – Chic dressing without any summery feel to it. And I found the perfect garments from the latest AW16 collection in United Colors of Benetton.

Bare Necessity

Where there is a demand there is a supply. And when the demand is more than the supply – the item becomes coveted – Almost priceless I’d add. As a consumer, I always like to own things as soon as my mind registers the Limited supply tag on the item. Am I materialistic? I’d like to think so. But am I to blame? I guess not. In one way or other, I think we all love the things that are hard to get.
