90's R.O.C.K.I.N.G. 80's


I had planned on writing this post long time back - between fall.
Before I start I would like to ask you all a QUESTION - which one is your favorite era of Fashion?
The 60's - 70's -  80's - 90' or 20's - which is precisely the mixture of all era !
I just love  70's & 80's Vogue , for me they were the best era of Vogue! For me it was, these era of vogue which has brought some really cool style in the fashion world.  Those bright colorful over coats, double breasted jackets,  fur faux , tweed coats , floral hippie styled palazzo pants & jumpsuits, long golden & black gowns & many more... ... .. ...
If  I start up with the 70& 80's era of vogue I can go on ... and  on....

So lets get back to this post, where, I have paired up my entire black outfit with a touch of light grey long over coat, which had been in our coats & jackets wardrobe since ages.... Well, am not a overcoat or jacket person  but, everytime , I  saw that coat, I always used to take it out try it on and put it back.  But this fall I didnt do that , I took it out, tried it on & walked out with it!! And I think I just nailed it - with this look as per the reviews I got at my snapchat & video which I had posted in my Instagram profiles.

I wore this outfit, when my beautiful citys' temperature had fallen down to 1* (weather is just an excuse - hahahahaaaa!)

Anyways I wore it almost the same look 2-3 times at work and I dont mind saying I love repeating the same outfit - well not the very next day but at least after a day or 3.  Yes, this is a very piece of beauty which WE - me & mom have it in our coats and jackets wardrobe and this beautiful piece belongs to my mom which she  had bought it during her foreign visit and thanks to her age she doesn't remember where on earth she bought it - all she remembers is it was one of her work training visit , during her early 20's!


Kickers - Goldstar
Over coat - Mom's wardrobe
Watch - DKNY 
Black shawl or stool - Shree Pashmina

Ofcourse, I paired the whole outfit with my all time favorite kickers GOLDSTAR #swankylovesgoldstar and since i didn't want the whole outfit to look like Men in black  #ladyversion I paired the whole look with Light grey over coat , green faux top and my DKNY watch . 

I named the post 90's rocking 80's as I really didnt know if it would be appropriate to say 70's vogue. Guess, 80's cool !

I hope you all enjoyed this post 
 Till en ... .

I  wouldn't mind saying that my wandering habit had been very much affected by my everyday errands! Reality of life  - MY LIFE
Thankfully, during my visit to a fellow designers' studio at boudha , I got a a chance to RUNAGATE even though it was a momentary.  This is one of the Gumba / Monastery where my work colleague  had parked his ride and told me this used to be one of his favorite hangouts in boudha. After we made our visit to the designers' studio  we planned to spend some time at this particular gumba "SETO Gumba" if aint wrong !

Even the earthquake didnt spared this beautiful place - which is SAD! the main building was also affected by the earthquake , due to which it was closed, and I only got to take picture with its Tall Wooden Door, which had these beautiful colorful patterns. The surroundings were field with nature and calmness which indeed made this RUNAGATE a worthwhile for that moment of my stay.
We didnt palnned up staying for long but ended up staying at this place more then an hour or so,
Those sounds of monks prayers, birds , smell of in-scent sticks, ofcourse the beauty of nature with sun set view from the corner.... ..


Kickers - SKECHERS 
Tote Bag - Emerge
Shades - Ray ban Clubmaster
Watch - Aldo 
Hat - Ripcurl

Since its already spring, i just paired up my work outfit with black and touch of bright colors, i.e. my hat and kickers gave a spice to my black outfit ! Also I wore these cool pairs of kickers as I had to go visit alot of places in search of Props for phootshoot #lifeofastylist #swankyranaasstylist
I would like to recommend you all to visit this place once during you visit to boudhanath stupa. 

Am sure everything is going on great with you all ... .. 
As always have been very busy with things which am not sure why am I busy with - Anyways !

Hope you all enjoyed my momentary runagate post !
