For most people turtlenecks are kind of exasperating. They are itchy and they make you feel like you're going to choke(choker necklaces does that too but not many complain since the 90's trend are back again). It's one of those classics that are just too unavoidable. The trick is to find the right one that fits you decent and won't make you feel like someone is strangling you. Like most people, I have never been much enthusiast when it comes to this trend and ever since it became much androgynous(and oh; that too has been in the trend for the last 2-3 seasons), turtlenecks have made an appearance in at least one blog post of most fashion bloggers.

I have slowly learned to espouse the turtlenecks. It came quite suddenly(and unanticipated). I woke up one morning and decided I wanted one, just for the heck of it and pay my due respect to Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler Fall-Winter collections and J.W.Anderson SS15 collection at London Fashion Week..  I have decided to love it as long as I can before the 60's fashion takes up the reign and I start falling in love with all things non-turtlenecks.

What is your opinion on turtleneck sweaters and crop-tops?

Ripped knee boyfriend jeans- DIY'ed by me, Thrifted shoes and Pictures by Jhuma B

Last week, I was sweltering, cursing that yellow round thing in the sky and overdosing on all beverages that had ice-cream in it. Didn't make my doctor happy, "eat your veggies and exercise regularly Rue"..."but, it's hot outside and I detest sweat". This week however, I witnessed fallen, almost-yellowish leaves and the climate has been tolerably windy. You know what that means? Autumn might be here and it's outfit -layering time and a happy me.

After a day of spiraling down into the pinterest vortex consisting, off-duty-models inspiration. It reflected on my outfit pick for the next day. Liu Wen had an amazing shirt on, which I couldn't find anywhere along with her perfect ripped-knee jeans. Almost sure that I didn't match her level of amazing-ness but hey, inspiration is everywhere and one should always embrace it. I was watching Matty in Robbers while DIY-ing(is that even a word?) the jeans. It's my form of saying thank you and it's also the only pair of jeans that I wear these days. I'll probably throw a coat on and wear the same outfit during winter too.
Also, I'm on Twitter and Instagram, make sure to follow me there, if you haven't already?

Victorias dress-lovesicklilac
I could write a list of genuine reasons why I was away from my blog for almost over a month. So far since. my laptop crashed and somehow I realized, so did I for the 26575th time. I tried to sit down and write over here but all I managed to do was stare at my laptop screen. I tried to read books which turned out to be shamelessly insipid. Even though I have a fair idea of why I felt, what I felt and despite of mentioning about it in a lot of my past blog posts, this time however the idea of writing it down doesn't feel so comfortable. It has never been easy but I never stopped hoping. They say, hope is what keeps you alive.

Moving on to pretty dresses, I stumbled upon Victoriasdress.co.uk about a month ago. They are an online store for wedding apparel and scrolling through the entire wedding dresses section, I felt the urge to pull a Monica and Phoebe scenario. There's another section of Victoria's dress that sells pretty prom dresses and look-alike celebrity dresses. I posted a few of my favorite, above. Seriously, how amazing does Taylor Momsen looks in that green dress. If I have to choose one from their website, I would definitely pick this amazing A-line chiffon cocktail dress with beaded. Let me know, which one is your favorite.
