This is how you beat the Heat: Street Fashion

Images By Shraddha Borawake

Outfit: self-made and Hand sewn; Shoes: Forever 21; Bangles: Flea Market; Ring: Self Made; Bracelet: Made by a friend.

There are 2 things I learnt from Zgizelle [who is a ballet dancer]
1] Follow your heart
2] Don’t care what people think

Both of which I normally do, but when it comes to shaving off my head [which I have wanted to try since I was 11] I still haven’t had the guts to do. I will someday [I have promised myself that] just don’t know when.

The Ying Yang is a great touch to the shaved head. It’s like a dynamic tattoo cause it changes shapes and sizes as the hair grows and is also easily changeable with a few weeks notice. What a cool concept!!


  1. Wow, she is rad! I love those colors.

    I like how she's accessorized her outfit -- it's perfect because it feels understated and elegant and really shows off her dress.

  2. Prutha I always and I mean ALWAYS love your street style post, you're awesome girl, BIG hugs n kisses, xoxo

  3. I thought it was a man in the first pic. I had a similar ring(talking about the black one),but I always had to take it off,when I was washing my hands.
    The point is... she's cool.

  4. Wow Prutha, that is one hell of a shot. She is super-cool. Best thing about her: the combination of ethnic / urban elements, that do fit very well together.

    Love the haircut and tatoos...

  5. Really fantastic pictures. love her hair.sarahD:)

  6. This is just an amazing meeting and an amazing look:0

  7. Beautiful and graceful woman. Fantastic image.

  8. eclectic! this is what I love about NYC... nobody really cares :)

  9. Wow! I appreciate anyone who has such a free spirit. Most of us secretly aspire to have but do not have the guts! I too love your street style posts! I guess living in NYC gives an insight into lot of interesting people. Yesterday I saw a man with a cardboard hanging on this body. It read - Why do rich people look like they are miserable to be alive and he was wearing funky clothes and interesting clothes. I was so mad at myself for not having my camera on me then! :) Ahh! What a long story in your comments.

  10. hehe...tanvi, pls keep the stories coming... i love them!!!

  11. Thats one proud african woman!! Love her ankh tattoo... You know goin Bald is Such a crazy experience specially for us Indian girls.. like hair is your treasure and stuff right!?

    I went bald like 4 years back in middle of college... damn its the most Liberating experience.. I mean you feel really stupid sometimes but most of the time totally badass.
    people look at you differently. you look at yourself differently. it was a special priceless feeling for me.

    I guess its the official BIG comment day:)

  12. so bold. her accessories are perfect for her dress. ive never gone bald and dont know if i could pull it off but i find the women who do always look gorgeous.

  15. great shots! amazing pics! love the street fashion

  16. Her ballet pose is timeless... Must be framed

  17. WOW talk about feeling inspired!!! :)
    The ring is to die for...I have to make one like it.

    I also love the 2 points...following one's heart and not to care what other people think.

    In my head I know and feel all that...but when it comes to real life...sometimes I struggle big time...Do you know what I mean?

    Thanks for a great great post! Love your blog and sweet personality. :)
