What is it about dressing up...?

So, What is it about dressing up? I wake up every morning, hit the shower and dress up. As in, yes I put my clothes on like every one else but I "dress" up. I pick my clothes the night before. I add my accessories and then the next day, it's all worn.

I see most women, beautiful women ask me what makes me dress up regardless. I tell them I love to dress up because it makes me feel more of myself. I dress up for myself than for anyone else. I put my minimal make up and have my hair in place because it makes me, me and it makes me happy.

There is something about dressing up whether you are a stay at home mom/ wife or if you are a professional. Consciously or subconsciously it makes a bit of difference. It pushes your confidence and self esteem to a different/higher level. Let's not kid ourselves when we say that when one's confidence or self esteem is pumped,we don't like it :-)

So no matter what or who you are, dress up, take care of yourself, invest a little bit of time on yourself and it makes all the difference. For some, reading brings all the confidence and to some wearing the right clothes and dressing up does.

What reflects is one's attitude towards ourselves more than anything. Treat yourself better because all of us deserve that much.

It's as simple as wear your clothes with love, dab a little make up if you'd like and have your hair in place! And it sure does wonders :-)

I feel like...

I am OD-ing on Biker jackets or Moto jackets. They are perfect because I love the whole idea of zip detailing and what better than on jackets? Well, to be honest, I love zip detailing on clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery.

Winter is setting in, whether one wants to wear an over-sized leather biker jacket with layers underneath or have a biker jacket as one of the layers underneath one's coat, whatever it may be, it's there and it's gotta be there! 

The thing about biker jackets are that they are incredibly adaptive to say the least. Wear them with casual jeans and a tee with stilettos or wear them with a party dress and look oh! so chic. They are elegant and chic/casual at the same time. 

For me, out of all the ones that are out there that one can drool for are the gorgeous Saint Laurent ones. They are just so perfect! But I can also drool for Alexander McQueen or Theory or Burberry Brit to name a few. Cost effective ones also include ones from Zara or other high street labels/websites (read ASOS, Topshop,Nastygal,Freepeople.com etc) 

But below are the pictures that I took while walking around and saw these Moto/Biker jackets that I'd probably would love to hoard!! 

1. Sandro 
2. Diesel Black Gold
3. One step
4. Replay

PS: Forgive me for the lack of better pictures:-) Will get around to taking better.
