Hello guys,today my post is going to be about a wardrobe staple or rather a fashion icon in its own,the Little Black Dress which made its first appearance long back in 1926,popularised by Coco Chanel in a Vogue Magazine Issue which claimed the LBD would be ‘an uniform for women of all sorts’.

Audrey Hepburn later proving that,sported a Givenchy dress in the ever famous Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Black is a colour that has always been termed as classy. It’s nothing extravagant but it never falls short of making a statement.  You can dress the LBD down or up.

The perfect LBD for your body shape and size. I have opted for a simple fit and flare little black dress.

I feel wonderful to have collaborated with Crochita India,a fast growing Calcutta based accessory hub for this.

‘Passion for me is the driving which makes me love what I do’ is crochet fashion  and accessory designing for Joyita Dey,the owner of Crochita.com.

The fashion industry was never that easy but there was no giving up for Joyita,a self taught jewellery designer. She was inspired by the unmistakable fact that a garment is always incomplete without it’s  accessories. Joyita was fascinating with accessories since childhood and often was the one wearing the most in a room.  She had a fetish of collecting jewellery.

A tropical print doesn’t require jetting you off to a distant island near the sea or touring the world though it would be an added bonus if you managed to do that.

We all know majority of hours of our this time of the year is spent shivering under air conditioned ice cubes but why let out resort wear go to waste all summer. When it can be put to good use,at a party,a picnic,college or even your very own work place. Just be wise in choosing the specific pattern.

All it needs is the way you incorporate it into a stylish outfit. This trend dates back to the 40s and 50s when people started travelling more,began to  adopt cultures and fashions.IMG_1875
