Nip Tuck: Personal Fashion

Images by Brian Augustine

Shirt and dress: Vintage; Skull Necklace: Evolution; Shoes: Custom Underground UK Creepers

The only issue with buying vintage stuff for a bigger person like me is that we seldom find things in our size. But sometimes you just love an outfit so much that you have to have it even if it is not in your size. And then you get creative and find a new way to wear it to hide your protruding curves or to just make it work. This dress [as seen in the last picture] didn't fit me that well so I draped and folded and pinned it a little to form my own new outfit which, if I may say so myself, turned out to be so much cooler!!!! It's something I honestly honestly will wear just like that when I go out on a regular day. Too bad I can't keep the dress forever as my friend Tasha and I decided to share it when we bought it cause we both loved the dress so much.

Introducing another talented photographer Brian to the DSM team!! I met Brian at NYFW while we both shot street fashion outside the tents and got to talking and he very graciously offered to help me with my blog. With NURBS and Upasna having moved away, I am getting a new team together and touch wood so far it has been totally fun and easy.

Love you guys for all your support. It really is encouraging to hear from you all. Big Thanku.
