Tag | The Fashion Tag

 I thought it would be nice for everyone to get to know my style because you can gauge a lot about a person just by what they like to wear. 

1)    What is your favorite style?
Over the past five years, I have become more in love with simplicity.  Wearing a sweatshirt by adidas, Rootsgear, or a club hoodie with jeans and adidas gazelles seem to be my go-to.  In addition, I really enjoy wearing black leggings with a knee or mid-thigh length dress with heels, boots, or flats.  Wearing less pieces but a complete outfit is what you’re most likely going to find me in.

2)    Style icon
Surprisingly enough, I don’t have a style icon.  I feel like a majority of people you see, especially in the media, are ones wearing outfits that don’t coincide with my likes and dislikes.  However, I love dancewear or street-wear worn by people such as Kaeyln Harris, Dytto, Deepica Mutyala and even Lily Singh. 

3)    Favorite accessory/ what are you always wearing?
At the moment, my favorite accessory is my Swarovski Crystalline Pure Watch in Rose Gold.  I really want to invest in a Black one of the same style but obviously my wallet is not going to appreciate that. 

4)    Favorite jeans
My favorite jeans are the DKNY skinny jeans which literally feel like a cloud.  I’ve had that pair for about 6 years and still find myself reaching for them, even though the fit isn’t as flattering.  On the other hand, Primark are most definitely an underdog when it comes to jeans.  The quality and color range is perfect and the price is almost always less than double digits which makes it great for every day.  I’ve had 3 pairs for three years which I still wear to this day frequently and recently purchased another 3 in different colors. 

5)    Favorite sunglasses
I do not own any designer sunglasses because I feel like my face shape just doesn’t suit a range of frames.  So I invested in a number of different colors from Hawkers which are cheap and amazing quality for the price.  It is a standard frame shape that appears universally flattering.  They do the job perfectly until I can find the time (and money) to buy a pair of designer sunglasses. 

6)    Favorite shoes
The shoes that I seem to wear and tear the most are my adidas gazelles because it is what flatters my style.  If I’m not wearing those, I’ll have on a pair of black flats from Accessorize with my dresses.

7)    Favorite store
The online store which I get a majority of my cheap dresses are Romwe and Sheinside.  I really love their dresses and the price.  However, sometimes I find I have to wait quite a while before receiving my package.  On the other hand, Forever 21 (despite its various law suits) has a style for everyone.  Though some of it may be cheesy, I can go from drawstring dresses to plaid shirts in no time without breaking the bank.

8)    Heels or flats?
I love the feeling of wearing heels in terms of the aesthetics but my feet hate me for it.  Therefore, I’d have to go for flats. 

9)    What purse do you use?
I currently carry a Ted Baker purse because I am a sucker for bows, beige, rose gold and pink. 

10)You've got $5,000, what are you going to spend it on?
Sweatshirts galore! I would most likely invest in more adidas gazelles and crew neck sweatshirts from designer, top-end brands, such as Calvin Klein Jeans and Tommy Hilfiger Denim.  I would also buy more elegant dresses from Lauren by Ralph Lauren (http://www.ralphlauren.co.uk/home/index.jsp) and Ted Baker because I love the way their dresses fit on me and are not too short.  In addition, I would make sure I can buy my parents a staple accessory item such as a designer watch for my father or jewelry for my mother because, although I am selfish and would want to spend everything on myself, I would want to gift them with something meaningful and long-lasting.

11) What is your go-to outfit?
If I haven’t made this clear enough already – a crewneck sweatshirt, most likely a burgundy sweatshirt from Rootsgear, paired with light wash jeans, and adidas navy blue gazelles.  This outfit is so comfortable to me and fills me with so much confidence at the same time without fail. 

12) Most prized possession?
The earrings which I wear on a daily basis from my grandparents as well as a ring as it holds a lot of meaning.  No matter what time of day it was, or whether it was a passing comment, my grandfather never failed to make every wish of mine, small or big, come true.  I still remember when I was only 4 years old and asked him to buy me gel glitter pens.  In India, 17 years ago, who knew this was even attainable in our small village but he made it happen. 

13) Fashion trend you wish that comes back?
Bows.  I feel like there is less of a craze about hair bows at the moment compared to a few years ago which makes my collection and I very sad.   

14) Favorite designer
My favorite designer would have to be Ted Baker, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger because their styles on the runway can be translated best into real life and onto the streets.

15) Most wanted item
I’ve always wanted an Oscar de la Renta dress or gown alongside Louboutin black heels. 

16) How much do you spend?
More than I have.

17) Most expensive item?
This was a difficult one for me because, although I am blessed to own many designer pieces, all of them have been bought on sale.  Nevertheless, I would have to say, for retail price, my navy blue Ted Baker Pointed Leather Court Heels.
