"Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking."

Dress, shoes, coat: Forever 21 | Over The Moon Chand Balis (Earrings): Miraya
The fashion industry is routinely characterized as fickle, complex, and moving too quickly. I don't know it trends even exist anymore. In terms of Laver’s Law, it is now only a matter of days that a trend goes from ridiculous to vintage (which defeats the purpose of calling it a trend - fad seems more accurate.) Is fashion too democratic to be driven by a select few trend analysts and forecasters? How does one keep up with the ever-evolving, agile industry without indulging in conspicuous consumption? My opinion: lifestyles have outgrown trends. My suggestion: slow down fashion with your personal, timeless style that syncs with your lifestyle and personality.
For me, fashion is classic, creative, comfortable, and a thing of self-expression. My creative renditions of the classic are a result of my culture and heritage. I find that I'm most comfortable wearing on-the-go ensembles that take me from day to night without much effort. For instance, I'd pair this outfit with nude sneakers and skip the earrings for a day time look. Finally, my self-expression lies in taking the maximalist route when it comes to accessories, because that's who I am - bold, strong, and statement-making :) Naturally, these elements extend to Miraya, and is the reason you see pieces like the Over The Moon chand balis on the store.
Down to the specifics, I don't think I have ever been this consumed by a color before. I'm a dedicated blush/ rose/ dusty pink aficionado for a myriad of reasons, but one that seems relevant is that its the color I'd always love to come home to. I am unabashedly romantic (so ironic that I have a sheepish smile on my face as I type this), and I think florals and a pretty pink do a pretty good job of communicating that. Moreover, its not everyday that you find a color that complements jewels in such a darling manner.
