Why I Decided to Finally Get Breast Reduction

“How could you possibly want smaller boobs? I wish I had bigger ones! Give me some!” This is a comment I have frequently gotten when I have mentioned that I hate (yes, hate) my breasts. I would always get somewhat quiet, smile and say, “yeah, you’re right… I am lucky.” But what I truly wanted to reply in my hidden frustration was, “yes, but just because you wish you had bigger boobs doesn’t mean you would like my sized boobs.

Evolution: PFW September 2019

It’s fashion season again, and I thought that this time around it would be fun to see the evolution of my style since moving to Paris.

I was looking at photos the other day and couldn’t believe how much I have changed. Not just in style, since its always evolving and changing, but also in how I carry myself. How I dress myself gives me more confidence. Continue reading “Evolution: PFW September 2019”

If you have been following me for a few years now, you most likely know that I did get invited to last year’s Oxford Fashion Studio shows in Paris. Don’t remember? Well… here’s a flashback to the outfit I wore. Continue reading “PFW February 2019”

Hello 2019: Goals, plans and yikes

Well, here it goes. I have been seeing everyone post their plans for 2019 and wrapping up by saying what was the best part of their 2018 and I had some difficulties coming up with a post summing up my year. It was a very difficult one for me. Continue reading “Hello 2019: Goals, plans and yikes”

Finding Color in a Winter Wardrobe

Winter has finally arrived, and luckily, in December, everything is sparkling. And while winter in Paris is one of my favorite seasons in this beautiful city, it’s also a very dark time when it comes to fashion. As the cliché goes, the French love to dress in black.
