I went to fashion school, but a couple of years down the line I realised that my IQ for fashion is as low as my IQ for science. So I diverted from my stream of education and started blogging. That is why I have high regards for all the designers out there. Especially my friends Rutuja and Harish who have started their own label called ‘La Rutu’.
Last week, they sent me the cutest little bustier without quite realizing that my stubborn cellulite might decide to show through. Hey, so what? Cellulite is Nature’s way of protecting my organs.
The moment I saw the bustier, I felt like it would make for the perfect holiday look. Since I don’t have any holidays coming up until I make enough money to be able to afford one, I pretended to be a tourist in my own city. For the authentic feeling, I took a boat ride to the Buddha Statue in Hussain Sagar- something I haven’t done since I was a child.
The boat we wanted to take was full of humans. From cheesy couples to kids with runny noses and men in stylish shades pretending to take selfies while actually taking pictures of girls, we saw them all. Thus began our journey on the rusty boat. For some reason I felt like Shah Rukh Khan from the movie ‘Swades’, surrounded by all these people.
We all know that feeling when a random person gives you advice. Like this photographer who takes Polaroids of tourists at the statue came up to me while we were shooting and began teaching me how to pose. “Essss (Yes) do Namaste pose”, “Maedam (Madam), sit down and close eyes” etc. I appreciated his effort but I would’ve taken his advice a little more seriously if he hadn’t worn his pants on his chest!
I teamed this bright bustier with beige culottes from ‘AND’. To bring out the colours in the bustier, I wore green sneakers from Reebok and my orange reflective Ray-Bans. Here’s some meaningful advice; If you see someone wearing reflective shades, it does not mean that they are blind. They can still see you setting your hair in their shades.
I loved the little bow detailing at the back of the bustier. It made the piece so much more glamorous. You can shop the look right here!
I topped my look off with a blue faux croc leather backpack. It’s the perfect size to carry travel essentials such as sunscreen, a water-bottle, wallet and a camera.
This is just one of the many ways I would wear this piece. As for you, you can wear it with jeans and heels for a party or wear it under a matching suit for that pop of colour!
Go look up the stuff at La Rutu. They’ve got some adorable pieces and most of all, they are extremely passionate about what they do!
