Ashima-Leena's Couture Week collection-2011

Brocade PePlum jacket

Brocade is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabics, often made in colored silks and with or without gold and silver threads. The name, related to the same root as the word "broccoli," comes from Italian broccato meaning "embossed cloth," originally past participle of the verb broccare "to stud, set with nails," from brocco, "small nail," from Latin broccus, "projecting, pointed."

These smart ones above are from Olaya in Hauz Khas village. It's a kitschy little boutique and everything they stock, is made from ethically sourced village hand-crafts, and recycled waste materials.
The jacket itself, has been re-crafted out of an old traditional handloom saree. It's slightly quilted, and lined with fleece on the inside, so you can keep snug while looking a million bucks!

Dhoti pants.. A perfect mix of fun and Funk!

My dream job...

The whole day i was surfing for my profession related blogs,competitions and other interesting things as well as a good office in delhi as im going to look for a job as soon as i finish making my portfolio.I have just started with it as only a few days ago i got a new laptop.honestly speaking i was browsing more about fashion rather than jobs and had a hard time concentrating on the stuff i ought to be browsing.But as they say ''all is well that ends well" ,its not so bad since i just completed the step-1 i.e. zeroing in on the firms that fit my criteria of 'my kinda office'' ;)
1. It has to have well qualified,young crowd
2. It should have a few renowned projects or it should be located in south delhi.
3. The projects should be interesting,large-scale.
4. It should have some national or international awards,projects published in magazines like A+D.
5. Salary should be a lil more than i was getting though if the co. is great i dont mind.
6. I would love to work in an office which is spacious,got nice ambience,and not situated in the basement as most offices are.

Feels like iam doing day-dreaming more than moving my ass and do some hardwork.But i wanna join a firm which is equivalent if not better than the firm i last worked in so i'll take time before i take the plunge.

Today i made a vision board of the office where i would like to work.I didnt give a damn to the aesthetics,i was busy browsing so i just copied and pasted wherever i could in order to not waste any more time.Its good enough to read and inspires me to go and get my dream job.

16th feb...my angel met her cousins

One of my close relatives had come on thurs.It was the second time i met them in the last 3 years and i'd been waiting to meet her as i was in touch with her through FB mostly and she is a really sweet person.She has 2 adorable boys aged-3 & 10.They arrived at 4.30 and since they were in a hurry,they were leaving at 6 but as they stepped out,my father was coming and so they had to stay a lil longer.We chatted on different topics and felt like all of us had known each other since long.I gave my lappy to the elder kid so that he isnt bored and the lil one was making some drawings and was telling me funny stories related.He was reallly cute and the way he was speaking a few things in hindi it looked v sweet.I asked him which oil do you use.he said "Baha-dugar oil".lol (Bahadurgarh is the village they are staying at since all their relatives live there).Then he took me out to show me the car his dad drove and asked me where i would like to sit.He said he preferred to sit in the front with his dad.I asked him if i can also take my mom dad along.He didnt look v pleased and said "nahii...pishkii-pishkii ho jayegi".(pichak jayegi= it will get crowded).

The past one week was amazing as i relaxed and went out more with my lil angel.We had gone to zoo last sunday and then i went to a nice salon,got a new haircut.Its a bold one,gives me a corporate look,hard to describe.But well sometimes i find myself admiring the look and mostly iam yet to getting used to it as it had been one whole year since i last cut my hair.So now it somewhat looks like this.

Sot it was my maid's second day and she made my house sparkling clean also since i had removed whatever stuff we have on the floor and put the heavy stuff outside.Now all the areas where there were something or the other lying accumulating loads of dust is wiped off clean.After she left,i decided to change the setting a lil bit,just for change...i dont think it did make a lot of difference though.But well having someone clean your home inspires you to do something more to mak it look better and better.So happy!!
Now i have 2 imp tasks on hand-
1. Getting my laptop repaired
2. Buying a bed
