Happy New Year :*

After an entire day of travelling when I came home in the evening, I saw this beautiful hamper sent to me by Confidential Couture. Now, who wouldn’t like such surprises?  What did that hamper have? A black tee with a title of this post, napkins with my initials personalised, a hand-written letter, “BE STYLISH” with Pernia Qureshi & of course, their catalogue. Okay! I have to admit, I do have a thing for hand-written letters & personalized gifts.

I also don’t think I would get a better chance to actually talk about what the tee reads, just not in the sense of fashion.

Haven’t we all faced a situation where either our mom, sister or a bestie would explain to us how important it is sometimes to be fake? After a tiresome conversation every time, all you can think of is “I’m sorry for being real”.

We all love our individuality & after having invested huge amounts in luxury brands, we like to maintain theirs too. Don’t we?  A few essential points to keep in mind before picking up any luxury products would be –

  1. The fine stitching – Properly aligned & short stitches done by expert craftsmen only
  2. Hardware – Solis gold/silver metal, brass, plastic, etc..
  3. The inner lining & pockets – Usually ignored in knockoff’s who use cheaper quality materials that can be identified easily.
  4. “Made in..” tags – Eg : MK – Made in Indonesia, Chanel – Made in France/Italy ONLY

Make sure you do your homework well before laying hands on high-end items. Different brands have different aspects to be looked into. Choose wisely!

My Pairing of the tee : I loved the fit – loose & uber cool. Slogan tees are what we see trending at this stage. [Have you checked out Esha Gupta’s “LET ME ASK MY MOM FIRST” TEE – On my list now :D]. I paired this tee with rusty looking denim & shoes. The cap worn is one that I have been wanting to use for really long but also wanted it to be justified. I’m happy I saved it for the best!
