In memory of an angel.

We all have angels in our lives, and this post i wanna dedicate to my one angel i had on earth for a short period of time and an angel that i have till forever. You'll never know or feel what life's bitter truth is until you lose the closest to you.

"We were so young but we had dreams that filled the sky,
You were my brave soldier, you were my best friend.
 Just twelve and i learnt the bitter truth of life,
when you slipped away that windy spring sunday.
He took you away quietly and didn't give me a chance to hold you back!
Memories of you and me still so clear, creeping on me everyday,
I wonder every moment how life would have been,if you were still here today.
those yester years never seems to fade and life's changed since you've been gone.
You've made heaven your home, i hope your doing well there.
i rejoice for the times i've spent with you, i was blessed to be your sister,
and im blessed i know i have an angel whose always watching over me.
Thirteen years and i still miss you! "

Je Ne Veux Pas Travailler

Its the weekend again time for me to get lazy haha.
 i have work to do but it doesn't get me down because its the weekend, i don't have to wake up at 8am!!

My friend gifted me this coat, fits me perfectly, a pop of colour on dull cold rainy days that we've been having lately. Team it up with a dark plain coloured dress, you don't want yourself looking to busy but all eyes will be on the coat.  Add a lil beanie and your all set for the European summer rainy days!!

And this the 'Great Wall of Toli'. 
those fake flowers i bought em to make headbands but then i decided they look better on my wall then on my head so there they are, behind my lamp. i hardly use it unless im sleeping alone which happened only once. the lil dried flower my classmate boys gave it to us all on women's day, post card from INDIA :D, chinese placemat on top of the lamp from my Chinese roommate as well as that lil note card. And on the top its a textile thing i made on 'a place i dream of' and that's Paris. and yes the tag to remind me everyday my one saviour and hero, my JESUS <3 nbsp="" p="">

If you're wondering what my post title is in French that says "i donot want to work" 
This a song by this band called pink martini from USA. I heard this song over and over in a ' face cream advertisement' when in India and i always would stop myself to listen to the song. I came upon it again here and now i want you to listen too might have already but just listen to it again :D
i love the song, its preppy and makes me happy even though i really don't understand a bit of it, but i like to mimick the way it sounds and sing it my way haha

Happy weekend,
Stay safe and stay Blessed,
Love Toli x x x

Monomouth Monotone

Having one of those Feel- like- wearing- a-particular- colour moments?? try wearing them in shades. You can go regular with the black and white tone or go play with your dash of shades. 

here i've worn my dark greyish-blue denim shirt over my dark blue heart print cotton pants.

(PS: darker hues gives you slimming effect ;p )

add a dash of little color along.....don't get too monoton-ised

Monotone always stays in fashion so go on and try it out.

Get Inspired,
Stay Peachy,

Full Bloom: Prints on prints

                        Have you ever tried prints on prints or you have been wanting to try it but your too afraid about how the look will go by. Well as risky and intimidating it can be, mixing prints the right way can make your day as fun as it can be.
                     Whenever you're mixing prints, always keep one piece neutral or opt for a more subtle one piece. Don't over do with more than two prints or patterns, you will absolutely kill the look. When donning allover florals, be sure to keep one print bold and one smaller scale and yes of course, choose the same color family it will help blend your prints.
                     Finally accessorise with a solid item and your look is all set! 

This a DIY skirt. handstitched...yes handstitched! i decided i will not spend my bucks on buying but rather create things for myself and yes i have begun doing it. And soon im gonna show you guys things  i will be creating in the days to come hehe. 

100% polyester with a sheer look. One of my fav summer outfit. i love the feel of it, that feel when you feel like you ain't wearing anything. got me?? haha

So yeah! Enjoy mixing prints, have fun with them...just remember not to overdo them :)

Get Inspired,
Stay Peachy,
Bless you

Tassles and Denims

summer is here and everybody's fleeing for the summer shorts. If you got some old cranky looking denims or ure mothers denims you can always 'chop' it off and bring it to life your way. This short of mine was my mothers denims i found in a trunk up in the attic. i cut it off, acid wash it to give the level of color change. One thing keep in mind...mine was a light blue denim so it was easy to get the white color easily. but sometimes on a dark color jeans when u acid wash it , it usually turns brown that looks kinda ugly so u gotta keep dyeing it until u reach the white wash look and sometimes that might make the fabric fragile....easy to tear.
Anyways after i finished with my dyeing experiment i shredded the ends...and voila here's my ready-to-wear shorts ^_^

                           My favorite embellished tasselled jacket (my mother calls it the noodles jacket)

Get peachy,
Stay blessed,

Paisleys and checks

This was an old picture we took in India,  for the brand when my friend was the blogger for Arrow.
You can check out the arrow women, and you may happen to come across some stuffs you might like. Personally and an honest opinion, it aint my style but sometimes they do surprise me like this skirt did... made me wanna steal it.
 Im bit too orange in these pictures too :p

Do you love paisley's??

I Love you Mommy!

My mother my best friend, my teacher, my chef, my fashionista, my Mommy. 
    The one person with whom i could argue and argue for all silly reasons and be best of friends again within no time. The One person with whom i could trust in and always run to. The one person who believed in my dreams and pushed me now to be where i am.

I love You Mommy. You Inspire me everyday and everyday that i grow i wanna be like you, the person you are today.

DIY : Neon Skirt

This skirt is one of the most exciting thing i have ever made...well for me it was! I was actually making this for a project but i'm not yet a pro in sewing so it didn't turn out the way i wanted so i thought why not i make use of it instead of rubbish-ing it away.
SO here's it a simple neon highwaisted skirt.


the damn light made it look less neon :S

i think i will do some embellishment.....i don't know....just wondering...

Hope you guys like it.
Get Inspired and get your sewing going!!!!

Stay Peachy.

Illustration Fun

Okay before you see the pictures below i just wanna warn you that donot expect anything great because i am no pro in this illustration field and i just learnt it like a week or so ago about How-To-Use-Illustrator! 
these are some of the works ive been doing rubbishly for school work..... 

        These two pictures says cosmo in it because we got this deal with the Italia, cosmopolitan magazine. And these the two work we had been working till date according to a topic given to each. And in each project 5 people are selected and they will be up on the website. And i am never gonna be on that 5 because i tell classmates they have better illustrator eye then me .....(SAD) haha

Anyways the first was an underwater theme and the second a cosmo cover and mine was Leighton Meester of course! her eyes looks so dreary..... I tried my best.

If any of you good illustrators are seeing this...i think its already started to make you cry to think how poor i am...but forgive me....can't help if im worse then you.
But im still happy enough with what i did :D
What do you think???
