Dark Side

As the saying goes " Everyone has an angel in them." Likewise I think "Everyone has a devil in them." Your dark side is what you hate most in yourself or what you fear most. It’s your fear of failure, it’s your extreme shyness or your sexual compulsion. Or maybe a drug or alcohol addiction or an aggressive way of dealing with your closest family and friends.
The dark side is also what you hate most in others. Every time a person is making you nuts, it’s because that person touched a very delicate part of your dark side. You hate it when someone tells you his mother comes home late drunk. You cry when someone tells you her boyfriend walks out of her. You freak out when someone asks you for a loan. You become depressed when someone tells you her boss is making suggestive move towards her. You go crazy and start yelling when someone tells you he is going to be late for the movie.
“I am not this person, I can’t be that bad"

We cannot let go of our dark side because it is an experience, a part of our life and perhaps a part of our childhood that we are trying to forget. A memory that is etched in our mind even when we are 50s? 60? 70? A fear of rejection, a fear of abandon, an aggressive impulse  or a compulsion. BUT, we can learn to accept our dark side. Talk to someone close (there is no need to hide, no one is perfect) and start identify your reaction to the stuff that you don't like. Soon, you will realise that there is only 1 or 2 incidents that you have to deal with and accept. Everyone has a dark side. Not talking about it or showing it doesn't make one more perfect. We have just learned to accept.
"It is still me, only a better me."
 When Synjari, owner and designer of Senzafine, passed us some stuff she has for the World Goth Fair, I had so much fun styling and taking this picture for this write up. I have always wanted to do a Gothic theme and it wasn't too hard with the outfit and furniture from Senzafine.
She uses a generous dark red velvet spread on the mahogany furniture pieces which truly look remarkable in any Gothic home. The Miette dress comes in various colours and includes a flattering corset that is popular during the Victorian and medieval ages. Gothic clothing is incomplete without Gothic boots and the Callisto Boots from Senzafine at the Genre too comes with various colours to suit every taste.
Head down to the World Goth Fair now before it ends  31 May. 50% to 100% of the sales proceeds goes to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Sales at Genre ends 12 June.

Black is Classic

 If you love Black as much as I do, you really have to head down to the Blackonly EVENT. It is a one-stop for all your needs; from hats, outfits, shoes, accessories, tattoos and even poses.
The classic little black outfit can go a very long way. It can move you seamlessly from the office to a party - all with the addition or removal of the right accessories and complementary clothing. But when many women are relying on their little black dress/ outfit to beautify their wardrobe and make them look fantastic, it can be hard to stand out among all the other.
Here are some suggestions for dressing up your little black piece so that you stand out from the crowd:
1) Pick the Right Outfit for the Right Occasion. For evening dress, it  can be slinkier and yet remain well-shaped. The length should end on the knee. For day wear, it can be anything with a softer fabrics and lightweight wool crepe is a good summer fabric if wearing a black dress or pants.
2) Add headwear and hair accessories to the list of possible dress-ups for the little black number. A well placed hat can be suitable for special events
3) If you don't mind wearing gloves, they can really dress up the little black dress. White gloves for the daytime and black gloves for the evening can work wonders.
4) Use jewelry to brighten up the little black outfit. The little black piece provides a magnificent backdrop for showing off your favourite jewelry pieces.

A Sizzling Hot Day

I love spending my day at the beach.
I love the embrace of the warm sun, the smell of the salty sea and the feeling of the sea breeze blowing on my face.
I love watching the waves and listening to the birds,
I love to cycle, roller blade or just lie on the white sandy beach
and people watch. 
I love watching the kids build a tall sandcastle and how they fuss when the sandcastle topples,
I love watching loving couples lying close to each other on the sand, stealing glances at each other,
I love watching families chattering and laughing at the beach.

Of course,
I love wearing the sexiest bikini to the beach and be watched by others.
At [Masoom],
Stuff in Stock, I found the exact piece I would love to have.
The white bikini against my sunburned skin.
The white flowy skirt flows with the wind.
The Anu dress comes with the hat that provides shade from the Sun.
