I decided to put my own spin on a very traditionally hand-crafted choli/crop top and after much deliberation and hours of endlessly staring inside my closet, I paired it with a pair of tie and dye pants in red with a joined wrap over the same. The combination of gold and red is ethereal and possibly the most traditionally Indian combination there was for wedding festivities. The outfit is perfect for the spunky bride on her sangeet who obviously thinks outside the box as far as her sartorial choices go, yet maintains a close relationship with all things traditional. A low twisted bun and a sun and moon maang-tikka completed this look and it was difficult to really categorise it as a traditional or modern. A fusion look which is easy on the eye and definitely a lot of fodder for the mind. How are you wearing your modern day choli, princess?

Given that the list of pros far outweigh the cons, I am going to be ordering my groceries and other household care items from them often. Are you team PepperTap?

With this little photo essay, I compile a list of ten things do in terms of where to eat, where to drink and where to shop for first timers and regulars. I am not going to wax eloquent about going to Sentosa or the Botanical Gardens because any guide for tourists would tell you that. So let's just skip the basics.
- Arab Street or Haji Lane: Definitely amongst my top favourite spots in Singapore, this area was primarily where the Arab exporters set up shop. From whole sale fabrics to design equipment, these shops sell everything. Once you cross that main stretch and are then on Haji Lane, that's where the hipsters are at. From large scale graffiti and wall art to the cutest concept bars and cafes, this place covers it all. Not to forget, the string of boutiques, some conceptual and others just plain vintage where you could strike gold if you looked thoroughly enough. The boutiques are slightly on the expensive side but there were few things that you could take delight in finding only there, like those Olympia Tan book clutches knock off but just much cuter. Blu Jaz Cafe would be my top pick from this locality.
4. Chinatown: This place might feature on many a tourist lists but Chinatown is where the locals head often too. Quaint markets that sell the oddest looking spices and dried meats (you possibly cannot identify half of them), that lead to the flea market and the open air food court which has stalls creating some amazing Asian delicacies. You can walk down the market to buy souvenirs, selfie sticks (yes, they do a roaring business in Singapore), hats, toys, chinese lamps, you name the most bizarre thing you can think of and they have it. There is also a TinTin store which you obviously don't want to miss. Grab a few bottles of tiger beer and some dumplings and maybe just sit and soak in the Chinatown feels.

Nevertheless, I wrote this post when the horrible weather in Delhi was putting me in a spot and I was very inspired by my favourite Dirty Dancing reference of all times when I decided on the title for this post. Currently the sticky sweet winds of Singapore are sweeping me off my feet and this outfit might not be ideal here but it is definitely something I would wear in Delhi. Almost like a uniform. Nasty Gal is giving me life in this day and age of too many e-commerce competitors and little inspiration in the clothing. Not only do they stock multiple labels, they are also right up my alley in terms of my style inspiration. Edgy and chic with just the right amount of drama.
How would you wear this floaty dream of a shirt dress?
