An Uncertain Witch

Hello ghosts, zombies and devils! Your day’s right around the corner! I’m thrilled, though I haven’t got anything down pat to wear yet.

Tut tut.

I can dream of a dozen characters I’d Love to be, like Wonder Woman for example, or a bloody snake charmer after his own pets turn against him, or, or a zombie cheerleader! Yea I know, but it’s funny how my creative juices ebb precisely when it comes round to thinking about a horrifyingly different costume to wear. Every year. This could be either,

  1. Because I, by no means, wanna rip my clothes n stain them red, (which is what Halloween demands), however prehistoric and faded they are.
  2. Because I think it’s an utter waste to squander away money on clothes that you’re never gonna wear again. Even if they’re from eBay.
  3. Because of the perpetual economic crunch in my personal finance department ‘cos I’m financially-challenged in terms of maintaining accounts and of course, my neurotic shopping disorder.

So, sighing to myself, I resigned to rummaging through the contents of my splitting-at-the-hinges-‘cos-I’m-a-shopaholic wardrobe and what materialized were, a fantastic red corset top, black fishnets and knee-high buckled, goth-ish black boots. A cut-price pointy hat, black skirt and broom(?) and clever makeup later, Sabrina, the teenage witch??? Or just plain witch?

30th October shall witness. And till then, I’m just gonna kick back and enjoy my Halloween cupcakes with jell-O worms on them!

A Fine Day & Happy Threads

It’s a teeth- chattering 3◦C outside and I’m curled up in my warm, inviting snuggie thinking, “time for more sunny posts!” So here it is.

It was a gorgeous, sunlit morning and I was getting ready for office, but I couldn’t contain myself when the sun peeked through my curtains cheekily and I went overboard with the colors in my outfit! Thankfully though, I managed to tone down my bright blue vest, merry scarf and cheery wooden bangles with a simple yet cunningly crafted, black wrap-around skirt.

This skirt’s been with me for practically ages now (though I haven’t worn it much) simply because it is so unique and one-of-a-kind that, my heart would eat me up before it lets me give it away! Designers and brands whose names you can hardly pronounce, needn’t be the only ones to come up with ingenious cuts and drapes baby!

Candied Nails

I thought I’d sunny things up a bit, now that everything’s  turning dull and wet after 7 glorious days of sunshine. I sat down to think of some of my favorite things and realized I was hungry (nothing new there). And I was craving something sweet and calorifying. And that would be chocolate. To be more precise, Smarties! Got myself a tube and had some. That done, I was bored cooped up indoors, so this is what I came up with!

It brightened my day for sure, Especially when my friends saw them and went “ewwwww”! Hah! 😀

And keeping with this inspiration, look what I found! A deliciously funky neck-piece from onchmovement!
