A silly Dilemma :o

Hello my Sweethearts! :)

How was your weekend? :D Mine was S.E.X.Y! 8) I had a fun, relaxed one :D Oh and I went shopping today Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :D *You ask Why? You donno why? :( Its my birthday on 14th :D Why you no remember? :(*

I got a new pair of jeans, black in color :D and a grape wine colored top 8) To be honest, I didn't like the top too much :| Its so blah for birthday, but its OKAY! :D *I didn't want to piss mom off :o She had gone tired waiting outside trial rooms for 2.5 hours :P* I still have to buy earrings, thought of buying it tomorrow :) I also had awesome Masalapuri, Cutlet and McSwirl 8) YUMMM! :D Screw dieting :P

Now about the title of the post, I am in this dilemma from almost two days, and only you guys can help me take a decision :o
 I want to start with Outfit of the Day posts. What better than my birthday outfit? If you have read my initial posts, you have read me rant about my hopeless uniform for college >.< Implies, my OOTD won't be regular until September :( 
Well the dilemma is not whether I should post or not. Its about brands. I'll be honest with you guys, I don't believe in brands. If I like a tee and it costs Rs.150/- , I'll go for it. I don't mind shopping from street side shops (not the shady ones though :P) and sales. My perfect fit jeans are never from well known  brands. I always get my favorite jeans from lesser known/hardly known labels. I love them because they are comfortable, and they make me look good :) Also I feel, going by brands, some are outrageously priced! And I feel guilty making my parents spend Rs.2000/- on a simple trendy top. 
Ditto when it comes to accessories. Those huge loop-y earrings cost between Rs.10 to Rs.Infinity. And I prefer Rs.10 ones. Reasons: 
1. I lose them. Very fast.
2. I get bored easily. After using them for like 12-15 times, I need to have new ones.
3. They are freakin' economical and fit my budget.
Replace loop-y earrings with any accessories, and change the range of cost. My thought stream is the same.

Now, I follow (and stalk) many many wonderful fashion bloggers. And every time they give a break down of their outfits, they mention Zara, Asos, Vero Moda and other brands :o I totally understand how helpful that is for people who want to buy the outfits for themselves. But if I post OOTDs where I won't be able to mention the brand, cuz its not 'branded', is it gonna look lame? Say my birthday top and jean is from Show Off :o My earring which I'll buy tomorrow will be from Mr.Street Side Shoppe :o Is it that necessary to give a break down? :o I have been over-thinking this all evening, and finally felt like only you guys can tell what can be done :) 

So lemme know what you awesome people think! :)

  1. I don't know abt others but I am looking forward to it....honestly, IDK if any of those *brands* r available in my city..and I believe being in style without going def I would go for the Rs.10 earring than the Rs.1000 branded ones, reasons same as urs stated above ;)

    so go for it gal...err...I m not sure abt the title but I guess u will come up with smthing creative coz u have that flair :D

  2. Look girl, first things first --- GO ahead with that OOTD post! FOR SURE! :) Secondly, it does not matter where you buy them from as long as they look trendy on you! <3 And even if you do want to mention where you bought those clothes from then be truthful. After all, there are many people in Bangalore who would like to visit the same shops seeing you dawn a trendy outfit.. And hell, when i visit Bangalore for college or for a holiday i'd definitely visit the shops that you mention in those OOTD post of yours. :) [You do live in Bangalore right? :P ] And price?? Who cares? As long as the clothes are good! :) I would say go ahead and mention the shops and the ones you bought from the street shops too! <3 And all the best for it. :) And yeah have fun on your b'day girlie!! :)


  3. As long as you are happy with where you've bought your stuff.. you shouldn't care what people think. What matters is how you carry off the outfit.. you dont have to shop in zara or any big brands for that matter.
    I say go for it! :)
    p.s - my personal experience.. i mostly do street shopping and from local/small stores. But when I post my outfits, people are actually impressed that I create such good outfits at such cheap prices! So yes brands don't matter at all!

  4. Hey Dear!

    I am wid u and waiting for ur post. Seriously, i also dont buy Zaras,ASOSs,MANGOs, etc, etc for the same reason as urs. I get damn bored so Brands doesnt suit my pocket and i feel on top of world when i buy from Street Shops(only when dey are comfy enough for me). Wen i see here, gals raving abt brands, i feel outcast (heheheheee).

    So count me in ur league! Dont forget to mention in ur post from which shop u got ur things, i vl also Loot-ofie doz places!

  5. As long as the clothes serves it purpose of making you look gorgeous, you shouldn't bother about the brands. I earn, still I find it unacceptable to spend more than 1000 for a dress/ top ...mix and match...carve a unique happy on who you are...looking forward to your posts

  12. you dont have to worry about brands and stuff as long as u are comfortable wearing it.. Duchess of Cambridge Kate doesn't buy great labels but she is considered very fashionable. Our own psycho heroine kangana who is considered decently well dressed in the industry believes in street fashion.. Money cant buy style.. you don't have to worry ... go ahead with ur OOTD. By the way belated birthday wishes :D
