The six yard unstitched fabric looks elegant and sensual when draped on a lady.

An Indian saree has undergone the test of time. But, there’s a flattering twist to the modern era saree. With sarees becoming more contemporary, quirky and lighter, we no longer see the quintessential plain saree with an attractive border. Designers are experimenting with prints and vibrant colors. We love Yogesh Chaudhary’s Pacman print and Masaba Gupta’s shutterbug chic and lipstick blot print.Apart from the six yards, designers are opting for jackets and knitted tops instead of the prototypical blouse.

But, today is not a quirky day! It’s the wedding season and the quintessential saree works wonders! Consequently, I almost received a marriage proposal! Being a modern woman, this very saree helped me transit between the contemporary and ethnic society.

Since, the saree was simple, I chose to do a smokey eye effect with a winged eye liner and red lips(which has worn out due to the amount of food and drinks).

I kept the accessories to a minimal by wearing two gold kada’s and a gold jhumka.

I have always had an inborn ability to take a pair of scissors and cut out old apparel. Unused clothing intimidates me to take up a pair of scissor and upcycle it into a beauty! A few weeks back, my mother asked me if she could use my old lab coat to clean the windowsills with it. Hence, I thought of upcycling my lab coat. You can wear the crop top with printed skinny tights or pair it with with ripped denim jeans.

Today, we transform a lab coat into a cropped t-shirt.

  1. Cut your labcoat or a shirt along the dotted lines. I decided to try a high-low asymmetrical top since its awkward for a few of us to flaunt our tummy.

2. Now, to enhance your cropped tee, start STUDDING! Start with laying down your studs on the pocket. Heart or a Star? Well, the decision is yours! 🙂collage13

3. Next, glue some colorful gems to your shirt collar.

Isn’t it easy peasy? You can also dye the crop top for an ombre look.

February is universally celebrated as the month of love. But is it only about that? A sudden nip in the air forced Citizenkay to get out her lazy unkempt bed and bask in the glory of a soothing sunday afternoon wearing the best she has in her wardrobe. Notice the colours; a deep hue of burgundy and a happy dash of citrus-sy orangy red. Don’t these colours make you happy? Kay kept the accessories minimal as the vibrant colours speak for themselves. Gone are the days when the season of love was only celebrated with RED. Citizenkay advises to go that extra mile and experiment with happy, cheerful colours.  Make it worthwhile, live, hug, kiss and most importantly love:)

Citizenkay has fallen in love with Net – from sweetly pretty day dresses to sensual see-through gowns and blouses.  The net fabric is staging a comeback.  It is a trend that dared to bare and won. From net sleeves on party wear salwars to chiffon sleeves, they have had a wide presence for the last 2 years. The popularity of the sleeves arises from the fact that the flimsy layer of fabric allows you to bare a hint of skin without going sleeveless and it protects you from the dust in summer and cold in chilly temperatures.

Solid black dresses with transparent black chiffon sleeves, helps hide all that flab on your arms and blends in with your body, making you look much thinner and taller.

So then one night she woke up with a jolt. It was still dawn. Her left eye still lay shut. The vignette vision didn’t distinguish between colours. Everything was hazy. She lay there still. Half sleepy, half wondering about what that meant. She hadn’t forgotten about the pact she had signed last night on an imaginary piece of paper. The imaginary pact read, “Tomorrow morning you will put your mind to the right things. The things that interest you and throw it open for the world to see”. She thought she was dreaming. So she slapped herself really hard, pulled out her blanket and went to sleep. Next morning, she woke up to the noise of television. Somebody was watching ‘Citizen Kane’. “Who watches Citizen Kane at 8 am? ”, she asked. No one spoke except Citizen Kane himself answered, “You are too old to be called anything else.” She stared at the dashing Orson Welles for several minutes. “I hope nobody ever said that to me”, she thought. She knew there was nothing like a ‘right time’ and she had to do it then, at that moment. So on one cloudless morning, she did it. She made CitizenKay with all her heart. Not thinking about the cons, not thinking about its future, not thinking about whether that idea will work. She had her mind that’s all. Then she continued watching Citizen Kane.

 So then with that thought,  Sarika Nagdeo and Kaveri Waghela made Citizenkay. They both are like Yin and Yang. One likes Grey and the other revels in brights. But Citizenkay bought them together. For the love of fashion that is!
