Fashion Fix | #OOTD

Hey dolls! Just a quick little Outfit of the Day post! Shivani, Sonia & I went bowling for our little cousin's 15th birthday, which called for cute comfy style. Coincidentally we both showed up wearing beanies, pullovers, skinnies and combats. I guess comfy minds think a-like!

Just a little rant..

When I get angry..I go on rants..and here one is for you to read. I wrote this in the summer and never shared. Here you go friends :)

What’s your notion of self-respect? As a woman, I’ve struggled with this concept throughout my life. Growing up I was always taught that a woman had to respect herself. “Treat yourself with respect”. But what does that actually mean?

As a girl I always assumed that it meant to take care of your body and nurture your growth. Whatever you think that is as a child; taking care of yourself, sleeping right, trying hard in school. As I grew older it evolved into dressing in a way that you “respect” yourself. This meant: cover yourself and don’t show skin because you’re better than that. It was the idea that showing skin meant you were making yourself look like a girl who wasn’t worth the wait, a girl who didn’t care enough about herself to save herself for marriage or not provoke the minds of men.

I’m sorry..what? If I want to wear a tank top and shorts I somehow don’t respect myself? I began to wonder when this once healthy idea of taking care of your body, eating right, exercising, doing things to benefit one’s self, all of a sudden became this paternalistic guideline of how I should dress – and that if I don’t dress properly I’m somehow not treating myself properly.

The Grammy's Fashion!

Alright everyone, it's that time again. Let's go through some hits and misses in fashion at this year's Grammy Awards. Now, I will say, I didn't see as many themes going on as I did at the Golden Globes, but there was very vaguely this theme of white and metallics/golds this year. Of course there were the classic black dresses, and of course some misses. I decided to include menswear as a separate section for this post, since I loved what some of the dudes were wearing! So let's get into it!

Web Wednesday | The Lion Whisperer

Helllllllllo everyone! Sorry for the long hiatus, the break was a lot busier than we anticipated! But we're back with another Web Wednesday. This week, we're featuring a video that made me (especially) very very happy, and I'm sure it'll do the same for you.

Golden Globes Fashion!

The Golden Globes were last night, and there was so much beautiful fashion going on! I tried to compile some sets of outfits...some amazing, some..well..not so amazing. There were many more that were either just, bland, boring or just neither here nor there, so I decided not to include them. Let's get into it!

I was loving a lot of the white that I saw, most notably Margot Robbie who looked simple and sexy in her Gucci gown with emerald detailing. Kunal Nayyar also killed it as the one guy (that I saw) in a white blazer! #lovinit

Lipstick Love - Vino!

Hey lovelies! Winter is ALMOST over (not yet unfortunately) and I wanted to share with you all one of my fave winter lipsticks! I always tend to go more towards the "dark side" if you will, when I choose my lipsticks, and I've loved this one for years!

Web Wednesday | Danny & Tommy

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone! This Wednesday we bring you another video tackling the widespread issue of bullying. As you can tell, it's something extremely important to us here at Glasses n' Lashes, and we love bringing you stories of inspiration and change.

This video is nothing short of those two things. It tells the story of two young boys with amazing hearts, amazing style ;), and an amazing friendship. It makes me so, so proud to see such young kids displaying amazingly positive attitudes. Grab a tissue box and, enjoy!

Remember to spread the love & have a wonderful day! :)
