In this cynical world full of collisions of emotions I reside in my own little world full of dreams that lay fathoms above & a hope in the deepest corner of my heart to achieve them. A little skeptic yet like water..ever flowing and settling with all the seasons alike. A little sugar, a lot of spice & everything nice. I strongly believe that a little effort to dress up & make a difference in our own life is worth the shot! Because your clothes speak louder than you do. Being in style doesn’t mean spending a bomb on clothing and Fashion but it’s more of being comfortable with who you are. Fashion fades with time but style always remains eternal. Spending money is A-Ok with me but I like my money right where I can see it – hanging in my closet. We all need to slap on some armour to deal with our boring mundane life. An armour called Fashion. Follow me and be your best for we live only once. Live. Love. Hail Fashion. ❤
