REVAMPING!!

IMG_3179

Do you find your closet full of pieces which are boring to wear, or tough to discard your old but favorite outfits because it’s no more in fashion?  If you want your clothes to look fresh, new and unique, and not ready to pay for new clothes all the time, then how about adding a handmade touch and revamp or embellish what you already have?

At Perky Pockets, we have decided to revamp old and boring into something new, trendy and stylish. Perky Pockets is the perfect space for you if you love handcrafted masterpieces and for those who would like to get their favorite old outfits upcycled!

I’ve grown quite fond of stepping into my mom’s wardrobe and perusing through the different items in her closet. I’ve been able to style few of my mom’s clothes in a modern, on-trend way. Mom’s silk sarees will always remain the most graceful pieces of clothing one can own! Recently, I have used my mom-in-law’s saree to revamp it into a maxi dress. Yes, you heard it right. So, instead of discarding your old sarees and other attires you can twirl them into vivacious modern outfits. Isn’t that amazing??? If you wish to experiment a bit more with your old clothes, then you can even get palazzo pants, kaftans, flowy capes, scarves and much more stitched out of it! Contemporary fashion allows you to experiment endlessly.

Sooner or later, you can make almost every conceivable outfit out of your old saree. So, go ahead and get snipping.

Reviving Childhood Fashion Staples!!

IMG_2819.PNGThe current fashion trend is flooded with reminiscences of the 90’s! I’m a big fan of dungarees since childhood, Dungarees are back into the catwalk at runways, celebrity closet and are a street style staple. I personally adore dungarees as the level of comfort is raised to infinity whenever I am in them! Dungarees bring about the old school vibe like none other!

Dungarees have some fascinating history which I found while doing a little research on my outfit today. I’m thrilled to share!!

In the17th century, dungarees were first mentioned in a dockside village named “Dongri” located in Mumbai. In Hindi, it was called as “dungri”. For manufacturing purposes, it was exported to England where Englishmen began to call dungri as “dungaree’’. Originally dungarees were used as protective clothing by farmers, slaves, and laborers. They became popular amongst workers as they were durable and inexpensive and for the same reason carried a stigma of low status. However, this trend gradually changed when women began wearing dungarees during the First World War as it was the perfect outfit for those working in factories and needed protective clothing like men. They appeared back in fashion in the 40’s and 50’s initially with children wear and since then, dungarees have been quite eminent and IN and OUT of fashion.

Oh! I am wearing dungarees sourced from stalkbuylove, with a simple yellow tee, paired with white sneakers!

KARWACHAUTH

IMG_2617

IMG_4318So today is karwachauth and I am super excited about it and I am sure all you married women must be excited too! I love this day and him completely😊 I fast only once in a year that is during karwachauth. It’s this one day when my husband gets to be a VIP.

I love being completely festooned with attires, henna, wear sindoor and fast till the moon rises. Here are a few styling tips to make your karwachauth special! Most women love wearing the shades of reds, maroon, orange or pinks for this occasion. But you can opt for any color that makes you look good! If you are wearing your bridal lehenga, I would suggest you, do a saree style draping instead of front draping which will make you look not only stylish but will hide your belly fat (if you have any). You can add maang tika that will add the required charm to your face giving you a complete look. Go for stylish braids, if you are planning to knot your hair in a bun, fancy judapins will make your hairstyle look elegant. Go for winged eyeliners to give your makeup a finishing touch and not to forget the mangal sutra, bangles, sindoor and bindi to complete your look. So, keep these tips in mind, and feel gorgeous this Karwachauth as it is all about rejoicing in a good mood! Nothing makes women feel better than dressing up!

The modern woman in me surrenders to the moment when my husband pours water into my mouth I feel the affection in his eyes, when I touch his feet it revalidates the vows we made during our marriage. Every marriage requires surrender, acceptance, and faith. So, for me, karwachauth is all about love, faith, and togetherness! And also, a day to test my self-control! 

Here’s the entire lookbook of my Karwachauth 2017.

WARDROBE RUDIMENTS

WARDROBE RUDIMENTS

 

dsc04478.jpg

I have plenty of choices when it comes to my wardrobe, but having additional choices means my wardrobe is swamped with clothes. And most of us do end up hoarding clothes like no-one’s business. But unhappily, we end up putting those untouched attires into the dark hole of all things excluded. Removing the unused and ill-fitting outfits is the best way to make sense of the stuff in your wardrobe and make space for the essential pieces which will make it easy to pull together an outfit, whatever the occasion. Fortunately, Diwali is fast approaching and there’s no better excuse to freshen up your wardrobe than during this time for a change.

Trends come and go and reappear. But the ones I am going to tell you about have stood the test of time and will help to save the day and be stylish always. I suggest these wardrobe staples should be a part of every girl’s wardrobe.

Ready to get back to essentials for your closet?

A PLAIN WHITE T-SHIRT

There is nothing more versatile than this trusted staple! One can layer this perfect t-shirt over a tank top, or dress it up with a pair of denim cutoffs, or tuck it into a skirt. This staple offers a seamless makeover from season to season as well as it also poses a casual, off-duty look to any ensemble.

My Favourite Pick: White shirt Brand: Mango

BLACK PANTS

Every woman needs a pair of black pants which will make her feel good. You can go for high-waist or low-rise, wide-leg or cropped depending on individual’s choice. Team it up with a beautiful silk blouse which is somewhat loose and not clingy and can be worn on weekends as well as at work too. 

My Favourite Pick:  Brand: CODE Lifestyle

pants black

LITTLE BLACK DRESS

Ah, the little black dress! Need I say more? Black is elegant and modish, perfect for any occasion. The LBD has been a fashion staple for years and is evergreen. It’s a must-have for all occasions.

LBD

DENIMS

A classic blue or black denim is an absolute must-have in any closet. It is one of the major building blocks of any wardrobe. For people working in non-corporate areas denim work as a perfect option.

WHITE BUTTON-UP SHIRT

The white button-up shirt: one of my favourite go-to outfits when in doubt ”what to wear”. An absolute versatile piece. Team it with long skirts, short skirts or denim.

The White Shirt

BLACK SKIRT

Perfect for your boardroom meetings or evening parties. Dress it up with solid coloured tops for work wear, and for some oomph add a jacket.

LEATHER JACKET

A leather jacket is an added advantage to any outfit and gives a new texture altogether. A classic biker jacket will never go out of style and you can wear it year-round, and two. Go ahead and splurge for this outerwear essential.

SOLID COLORED BLOUSES/TOPS

I personally choose colours overprints as they allow to mix and match easily and help me create a big wardrobe around it. You can go for all possible colours that u love!

colored tops

CARDIGAN

Another important wardrobe staple, the cardigan, is a must-have for every woman. Although I don’t reach for a cardigan as frequently as few other pieces in my wardrobe, I still believe one in a neutral shade is a crucial part of a complete closet. Go for the basic or neutral colour cardigans which can be worn for spring as well as winter season.

A CLASSIC LEATHER BELT

A classic leather belt goes well with everything. Team it up with your pair of denim, a formal suit or with a bright summery dress.

BLACK PUMPS

Black pumps are the nattiest and reliable choice when it comes to shoes, they are well-matched to almost any outfit and occasion.

THE HANDBAG

A medium size handbag with multiple compartments is essential. Crossbody bag is the perfect one as compared to tote bag which is bigger in size or a clutch which is too small. Moreover, grab a bright colour and add a punch to your style.
