Mostly Ghostly: Personal Fashion

Images by NURBS

Top: Rahul Mishra; Leather leggings: BCBG; Shoes; Dolce Vita; Leather Cuff: Mango; Ring: Popley [Mumbai]

You know how I love to experiment right? But sometimes these experiments backfire like a bitch slap on my butt and put me in my This shoot was one of them. Although the outcome is quite beyond my satisfaction, NURBS and I shot this on one of the coldest days of this winter and froze our asses off. We both were shaking the whole time while we were shooting these pics. After 45 mins in the cemetery and crazy wind chill with minus god-knows-how-many degrees, we both ran [imagine crippled people break dancing their way out of a burning building cause we were literally frozen and that’s how awkward our gait was] out of the cemetery and found the closest Dunkin Donuts 2 blocks away to shelter ourselves in. After we got in, we both stood at the counter for 5 mins but couldn’t order our drinks cause we couldn’t talk. Our teeth were chattering and we really did think we were going to die!!! [How ironic right? Being back from the cemetery and all…hehe]. After we were able to thaw ourselves a bit we spoke the words “Coffee” “Hot chocolate” and swore never to mess with nature again!!

Love this fantastic young Indian Designer Rahul Mishra’s work. The architectural lines and the graphic overlays of patterns through sheer material on this top are just fantastic. And these leather leggings are my everyday winter wear. Seriously. My friend's are fed up seeing them on me, but I loveeeee them!!
