The Wallet Fixation

Asking if a woman can have enough wallets is almost the same as asking her the rhetorical question about ever having enough bags. I don't get tired of rolling my eyes every time someone (mostly someone of the opposite sex), asks me that question. Its ridiculous on so many levels. Does a bee like flowers? Do fish like water? Do women like bags? There is a bag/wallet for every occasion. Just like there is a shoe for every occasion. Granted that wallets are something that I personally treat as somewhat of an investment and hence I don't buy too many. But when life (read: Priyanka of Zubiya) throws these insanely cute wallets at you, you act on it and flaunt them. Wallets from Zubiya have the simplest, coolest USP. They are hand-painted! Not just by some unimaginative dude who didn't quite get what girls dig but Priyanka being an ardent fashion lover herself manages to give all her babies that certain quirk in terms of the motifs and characters she paints on to the wallets. Light, spacious (have multiple card pockets in case you were wondering) and super easy on your pocket. These wallets definitely managed to make me change my old faithful wallet and experiment a lot more in terms of the design. I definitely cannot get enough of the brightly Indian kitsch painted auto and the elephant with the myriad of Indian colours. Check out her website for the complete treasure trove.

The auto wallet is priced at Rs. 800 (INR) while the elephant motif wallet is priced at Rs. 1299 (INR).
It couldn't possibly get better.
Get yours at Zubiya and find them on Facebook here.

Much love.

When fashion magazines and salon ladies tell me that feet are the most ignored part of the human anatomy with respect to taking care of them, I don't usually refute that statement. I may not be a pedicure junkie but I sure have my ways of treating my feet special. I am a new age socks junkie. A sock (yes, the singular is actually sock, word trivia 101)  for each foot. In a city where the digits of the temperature are usually dwindling way below my age number, the feet can do with little socks and jackets of their own. Besides the idea is to have pretty feet even with layers of clothing around them. Enter Footsy. When Seema of Footsy got in touch with me, I was honestly thrilled to review such an essential yet ignored part of our fashion repertoire. Socks needn't be boring. Or drab. Or monotoned for that matter. So taking on this fashion challenge, I decided to do a series of photos with my feet trying odd Yoga postures flaunting my Footsies. Just kidding, I love the socks and I could not think of a better way to reach out to my readers with yet another find for their online buys. Go bananas shopping at Footsy and I hope you like these odd Yogic feet 'selfies'.

Still reeling from the little swirl around my Candyland? Order your polka dotted, striped, fuzzy animal printed or just plain psychedelic sporty socks at Footsy and I suggest that you check out their Facebook page too, right here.

Much love till the next post.
