WMD, Meera Reddy

WMD: Pronunciation:/dʌbljuːɛmˈdiː/

abbreviation

Women of mass destruction.

An ode to all those ladies who could shoot you down with their killer style quotients. To those who pass you like a puff of fresh air, brightening up your day and many days after. To those who make you turn around for a second glance and consequently drive you to ogle at them shamelessly. If looks could kill, then they’d have you down in minutes. No scratch that. Seconds is all they need. I proudly present to you a bunch of my friends who live up to being WMD everyday of their lives. Here’s one of them.

“I never saw so many colors on one girl before…

…but you looked like you belonged out there, all right.

You and all your colors.” – P.S.: I Love You

(I could actually hear the Butler’s sexy make-the-ladies-swoon Irish lilt, reading it as I typed!!!)

Meera Reddy, these lines have been imprinted in the historical profundity of Hollywood for no one but you, our Peacock, as Sharada so lovingly puts it!

For those who don’t know Meera, allow me to elaborate. All she would’ve be doing would be washing up last night’s dishes or simply lounging around catching a bit of her fav program (would prolly be One Tree Hill or Gossip Girls or Sherlock) on telly or just picking me up from the hairdressers. Only that, everything she does, she does with style that reads- all dressed up, complete with complementing hair accessories! A style that has colors splashed all over, they could jar and yet… they harmonize.

Meera loves trying out something new so you can never really tie her to any one style (other than the colors that is. But don’t let that get you thinking she doesn’t have her sober days too, which are equally charming!) She understandably can’t stand the wannabes who like to do something different just cos then they’d be um… different.


And didya notice her hair streaks change with every photo? Didya? Didya? I heart!

… And Its a Wrap!

To those who were expecting this post (I’m guessing it was just Bavane), yeah I know. It has taken a journey too long to just arrive. It’s here now and that’s as good as it can get, right? It’s all about being pressed for time when you hardly have the time you should have, to do everything that you should do every day. (I hope you got that at the first read) And does that read no time for manicures? Or even for a basic coat of nail varnish?
Don’t despair, nail wraps are here!
And what may they be? They’re the latest and best way to tart up your nails with designs as on-trend as the latest S/S 2012 line of Diane Von Furstenberg. They get my thumbs up just because,

  1. Beyonce wears them!
  2. Wrapped fingers stay for about a week while the ones on your tootsies can stay for nearly 8 weeks!
  3. You get to parade designs on your digits that nail art can’t mimic.
  4. Continuing with that, you get your fav embellishments on, in under 15 minutes while nail art takes…. A back- breaking forever!
  5. Did I mention? Beyonce wears them!
  6. Tartans, polka dots, stripes, animal prints, metallics, stars, hearts, abstracts. Nail wraps have them all!
  7. They don’t chip, they don’t stain.

Bavane played the role of informer about these pretties and also graciously gave in to being my hand model and photographed her nails after some cooing and cajoling. Ok, a lot of pestering, to be honest.

Umm and I don’t think you get the wraps in Indian stores yet. You do get them online though. So don’t kill me.

WMD, Amy Purfield- Clark

An ode to all those ladies who could shoot you down with their killer style quotients. To those who pass you like a puff of fresh air, brightening up your day and many days after.

Ever had one of those random people who flitted into your life to do you all the timely good that you need and just as smoothly fly out once their guardian angel work is over? Amy Purfield Clark of Vintage Reflection, is one such fine soul who besides helping me with various fashion travails (read: creating a Vintage Convert) and helping me start this very blog, also taught me I could wear the sunniest floral for winter and the dullest grey for summer with head held high and without having to come under the critical nose of the fashion police.

Fittingly titled “The Vintage Goddess”, (yea I call her that) Amy loves mixing it up with elements of our modern world which is why one day you’d see her having a mooch around in a thrift store and an another day at Topshop/ Urban Outfitters/ H&M. Normally, a fall-in-love-at-first-sight person (did that happen with Dave? (wink)..) she’s trying a nouvelle approach now, of waiting to see if she can’t get her mind off those oh-so-Americana-vintage cat’s eye sunglasses and then scoots back to buy them! I guess this is a  must-hear idea for all the shopaholics out there like me!

A few photos of the lovely lady herself working her granny chic look.
