Hello dear awesome readers,
I know its been a while since I did an outfit post, the holiday laziness been creeping on me or what? June's here, I'm feeling happy. Looking forward to rains and lovely weather. Also some not so lazy days, when I actually do some work. The last week has been rather weird, things have come and gone but then that's what happens in life.
Lately I've been in love with loafers a lot, I don't know why. My heels just rot under my bed, crying: 'Please wear me' but I can't because I love my flats a little too much these days and especially loafers. Also, I've been trying new colours.
And writing poetry, whatever I call poetry that is.
Today I need to tell you about a little something you'd have noticed. Firstly, new header. Second, new blog name. Why I changed the name? I felt 'The Sonshu' was better describing of the blog because all of us are only one, when it comes to characteristics and behaviour and writing style. So the sonshu pretty much defines the blog and its unique touch and taste. Hence the new blog name, also the domain goes with it. And I felt it was time for a change. So yes, I did go ahead and change it.
I am not going to ask what you'll think because many of you loved the old header, however, I wasn't feeling it much lately. So I think the blog should represent the writing and me and things in it, hence the change.
But I'd love to know what you thought of the header.
So today's outfit is all about classy colour mixing. Red and black are colours everyone loves, and not only loves but loves paired together. That is what makes it all the more special, they are body flattering, look good on almost everyone and come in varieties.
Today's outfit was a random pick and I dug out pieces from the closet that I felt go together. The cape is longer than my LBD and I love wearing it like that, kind of adds a lovely touch to the outfit.
Also, here are some tips to keep in mind:
1. When wearing an outfit don't go completely berserk with colours, even if colour blocking. Always match a piece from your dress with a handbag or shoe.
2. Adding a neckpiece to a plain outfit definitely adds the jazz that it requires.
3. If walking long distance, definitely opt for loafers, ballet shoes, slippers according to your outfit.
4. Never be afraid to wear the same colour combination a lot, just try and experiment with the pattern and the style of accessorizing.
5. Always remember that anything can be carried off, if you have the confidence needed.

Loafers: c/o American Apparel (HERE)
Also, the loafers I must mention are so freaking comfortable. Something I dig about American Apparel is their brilliance when it comes to a variety and a large range of sizes. The loafers were not only available in my size but were also super comfortable and their delivery speed is out of the world, express like I must say. American Apparel has everything from clothes to shoes, they even have performance wear and a whole lot of vintage. Men's clothing is also pretty awesome on their store.
I would also like to mention how I love the packaging, one need not worry about how their item will reach. Because the packing is delightful and smart. There's nothing you can complain about. Also they keep getting new stock as and when things get popular.
Click on the link to visit their store, which I suggest that you should because I recommend it personally. :)
Will tell you more in the next few posts. Stay tuned.
Also, I realize that this is the first time I've done a close up. Also, a lot of friends don't know that I blog and suddenly are discovering it because of newspaper features etc, but thanks a ton you guys for the constant support. It is super motivating!
Also, loads of posts lined up. Leaving you with a poem that I scribbled at one am after watching some creepy TV sitcom. :P
I am the person you see,
You dig in deep and unleash
Rip my soul and tatter me,
You were a friend
Now, nothing but a foe,
How things change within
A matter of time,
We held hands and laughed times off
Breathing and frolicking smiles,
But it was bound to come to an end
Good things last,
It was not.
