I read it somewhere that Autumn people have a rich creativity and friendly warmth. At the risk of sounding like a self-obsessed person, I must share with you all that I am an autumn born, no wonder I love playing with colours when it comes to fashion. I find the season so magical for the change it brings to the nature, it is one of the best time to go to the woods, I reckon. when I think of deep autumn colours, the names that come to my mind are mustard yellow, orange, fuchsia pink, purple, cherry red and tangerine. I have donned this Biba short kalidar kurti and a magenta leggings on the Navami Day of Durga Puja this year, just a week ago. These traditional prints can never go out of fashion and every time they come up with the trend of the season beautifully. I am in love with the embroidery on the bust area and how dramatically it had incorporated almost all the deep Autumn colours! What better ways to accessorize them than adding multi-coloured thread bangles and a pair of Jaipuri Jhumka. I am wearing this matchy silk thread work flip-flop that i picked from a street store in New Delhi. I had to stop my sister in the middle of the street somewhere in East London and made her click few photos for me, I remember one old lady passed by me and said ”isn’t this very much like film shooting?” 🙂 Well…that’s the objective- to make it look dreamy and romantic…that’s what Autumn colours stand for!
A spalsh of bold colours is just perfect for Autumn 2012. So, I went ahead with emerald green single eye shadow from Mac and blended it all over the eye lid. First, I have applied Clinique‘s chubby stick water melon on my lips and then applied two strokes of my viva glam lip gloss from Mac. Go simple in this Autumn but always make sure it suits your persona and bring out the fashionista in you.
