Hair-Dressing 1st time ever!!!

My best friend registered me for a hair-dressing competition in her college. It was the first time I was supposed to do it with someone else hair. I usually do experiments with my hair and have never before touched anyone's hair in my life-time. It was first time and that too in a competition, so it was a bit intimidating. I did the styling experiment on my other best friend's hair. Of course I couldn't win because the other participants were pro but it was fun to get to do it!! :)

I called my hairstyle- My take on the messy bun traditional way.

The small pins where created by embroidery beads and hair pins.The look is simple. I first tied a pony then took 1/4 of the upper part of the hair in the ponytail and formed a messy bun. Then I made two parts of the remaining hair. Made a simple braid of the first part and twisted it round the bun and twisted the second part and again twisted around the braid. I decorated the bun with a bow pin that I already had with me and dressed the braid with the pins and beads. The same pins were used to decorate the front side of the head where I just twisted the hair and pinned it .

Here are the pics!!

Enjoy the day!! :)

Vacation Project!!

Hi lovelies! Today I am posting my long time pending post!! I was and still am supper excited about this project of mine which I did in my Diwali vacations. I made a skirt for myself from scratch literally because I didn't have any drawing to refer to and made the first cut by trial and error on paper. I had learned this amazing honeycomb smocking on Burdastyle, its amazing site for trying out new patterns!! Anyway I wanted to try that on a skirt!! Here it goes!! My Honeycomb Smocking Skirt!!

 It is just below knee length with a zip in one side. It looks stretchable but since I didn't add elastic to it, it does not stretch.

I am still to find a perfect top for this. I was thinking of sleeveless white and black horizontal strips top. What do you think will go on this? Do let me know!!

Enjoy the day!! :)

Did you know?? - High Heels

I know its been a while and all my resolution of writing religiously has gone in drain with my study schedule. A solution to that I came up with Did you know series where I can write quick facts and finds of my own about fashion and share it with you all!!

Today's find is the birth of our modern heels!! Did you know that earlier heels were not so popular among women. Though there were many regions in history where heels were popular but modern day heel had its own beginning . King Louis XIV wore platform heels and it was compulsory to wear heels in his court. Red colour was specially symbolic for the aristocrats. Below is the ancestor of our beloved heels!!

If you are looking for short history on heels, I found this web page with the shortest version of - History of Heels.  Its quite informative.

Enjoy!! :)
