I have finally watched the fashion documentary about Bill Cunningham on Netflix ...

...and now I'm even more intrigued by this fashion icon/artist that I've been following since I moved to/interned in New York City years ago.  He has such an interesting story.  I would really love to read a biography on him and dig deeper into his life.  It's interesting how Bill Cunningham has captured so many peoples lives and yet has really never shared his...until now.

A few quotes that really struck me during the film:

"Fashion is the armor to survive the realty of everyday life."
-Bill Cunningham

"He who seeks beauty will find it."
-Bill Cunningham

"The best fashion show is on the street…”
-Bill Cunningham

"We are all blank canvases when we wake up and we paint ourselves."
-Patrick McDonald

Quoted Joan Crawford, “Whenever she went out she had to be Joan Crawford.” 
-Patrick McDonald

I’m always going to be Natasha Rao…Ever changing…always enjoying the art of fashion.

He's been doing this before it was a trend...and has the eye to find what will become a hot trend.  I recommend this film to everyone...with ****!  Amazing film!  

Curly hair inspo from Game of Thrones

Curly hair inspo had come from the first season to now...

Who would have guessed when I started watching this show that there would be curly hair inspo...but, there's a ton!  Here are a few looks that have caught my eye recently:

Throwback Thursday: the denim skirt...who is going to bring it back?

I'm really playing with the idea...thoughts??  It used to be a staple in my middle school wardrobe.  Why not bring it back?

Look to Gap, Old Navy or Guess for perfect styles.  I, of course will be checking out etsy:)

Who What Wear ( offers ideas for how to style denim skirts and what style is best for your body type.  Although I think the pencil skirt style can work for all shapes.  It's just about getting the waist just right. That's where a tailor comes in:)

DIY Beauty | Raw & Organic Deodorant

I will be making this stat!  How fun, easy and smart!!!!

Hey Fran Hey is my new official "go to" blogger for all things beauty/health DIY!  Living in India, I can't find all of the things I need like curly hair products from shampoos to conditioners or even a deodorant I really want to use.  So, for the next 3 years I will be looking to Fran's blog for inspo on how to make what I need.  It's brilliant, natural and it doesn't cost a lot!  And most of the items she uses are on amazon!  

Peek-a-boo: doesn't this top remind you of the Stella McCartney resort line I just shared?

Zara is having an amazing sale!  Check it out now!!

5 Ways to Wear 1 Scarf and more

I love new ways to wear a scarf (I'm getting a ton of new ones in India for close to nothing)!  I can't pick which is my fave style.  All I know is I need a maxi strapless dress stat:)  I've always wanted to wear a scarf dress but I don't really wear short dresses...the strapless maxi makes it so I can have a new look!

P.S. I was doing the research because my mom found a new way to rock her new scarf that she bought at Free People.  Free People in Portland is just sooo amazing!  Check out their instagram feed for inspo!

This ah-mazing swimsuit is from OLD NAVY!

Snag it now!  For only $32 at Old Navy they aren't going to be around for long.  Amazing for all shapes too!

A new twist on cut outs with Stell McCartney Resort 2015

I love the new cut-out!  She used this cut out in few of her designs and I really loved all of them.
Ok, no cut out here...but, this reminds me of the "work suit" men in India wear.

I've been in love with gauchos since I was in college...I just love how this looks!

Layering to the next level...

inspired by the Resort 2014/15 Chanel in Dubai show.  I LOVE the idea of a light pant or cut-out pant worn under a short jumper...I've always dismissed the short jumper for myself personally just because I have a large bottom half...but, this is something I am very open to explore and it's perfect for India!

***move over tights!  it's all about the pants!  

Cruise 2014/15 CHANEL Show

I can't get over this amazingness!  Taking a ton of notes!  #brilliant
