Vintage Covers!!

The Ladies Home Journal(1890)

Woman's World(June 1929)


And my favorite!! Vogue(April 1918)

I came across these on my routine "googling" expedition. Aren't they simply B-E-A-Utiful? What happened to the good old days of exceptional illustrations on fashion magazines and catalogs? Sure Fashion Photography has taken over the digitized world of Covers but it wouldn't hurt to revisit the past just one little time would it now?

Wish it lasts FOREVER...

It is time… The gates slowly open... Endless pairs of stilettos begin to pour in. Pushing and pulling, begging and stealing, borrowing and running away with it… Sounds familiar? Yup it’s a SALE!! Not just any sale, the grand FOREVER NEW SALE!! That’s right!! This was one of those sales that you can just not afford to miss. Discounts were as high as 70% !! If you shop above Rs.5,000(which by the way believe me you will) you get to pick a garment of any value abso-f*in-lutely free!! After over two hours of satisfactory (and a little vindictive) shopping we earnestly rejoiced our steals!! It was the most perfect shopping experience ever!! Forever New is one of those brands you thank God for.
Find out more about the brand on

Anyway, later in the day me and my friend/my first blog model – Ishani got together and had a fun photo shoot. We used one skirt, which we call - “The A3 Skirt” – Anytime, Anywhere, Any how ;) , and teamed it up with a lot of interesting things. Check it out..
