Five Years of Love

Hello Fictitious Fashion readers

Love you all!

My Blog completed 5 years recently (Sep 7) and I couldn't be more proud of it. Can't believe it's been good these many years. So on this occasion I'd like to write 5 things I love about blogging. I know many bloggers can relate to this one :)


Let's begin!

1) It listens to me: Whenever I have had a bad day, I know I can come here, post something or look at other blogs and it cheers me right up. If I'm finding it hard to find a solution to my problem then I'm sure some blog definitely might have written a post about it. Most importantly; it always gives me a blank space to share anything I want :)


2) It inspires me: This one is not that hard and yet all the more a reason to be in the blog-sphere. During the initial few months, I'm sure many of us would have been stuck, numerous times in our thoughts. What to write next? This is to blogging world as What to wear? is to a girl's morning madness. Those with a style/fashion blog, where they showcase their style, are mostly sorted but the second question still haunts them. Those who have a fashion & lifestyle blog (like mine), have such difficulty in finding new material to wear & write, both. But I know that the moment I look at my old posts, or someone else's new posts, I'd know what to do next.


3) It has made me confident: I used to stick to one type of style or imbibe one when I was ready according to my comfort. Now, although I still rely on comfort more than anything; I have become more experimental in nature. I try bold prints & colors, am not afraid to style different styles together and can very well understand how to carry one piece according to my body type. Even though ones inherent style remains the same, but I've been more open to different things now.


4) Connections: We all must agree that another thing blogging gives us are, connections or friends. I had made one very good friend, Sam from Frills and Thrills. Lost contact with her or she has changed email id but she is one of the best person out here. People who know her, know how kind, sweet, good with her words and a true fashionista she is. Like her, I made many great connections from around the world which truly gave me an enriching experience.


5) Happiness: Everyone told me, if you love blogging so much, why don't you make a living out of it. While it makes sense for many bloggers but I wanted to keep somethings (Guitar & writing) which I could do after a tough day at work. It acts as my escape route and gives me immense satisfaction.


Thanks for being there :)

Take care

Evil-Red Birthday

Hi all

I know there's lack of innovation in my titles but I was so excited to just publish the post and hear your thoughts on my birthday dress. First time, wore such an elegant and simple dress (and first red) that just rested so perfectly on my body.

It was my Birthday on the 13th (no it wasn't a Friday!). After 2 years I could celebrate the day with my family. It was such a perfect day: Lunch with friends and dinner with family, followed by two separate cakes for the occasion.

Until 2014, my birthday sponsor (not literally) was Promod for, if I couldn't find a dress elsewhere, Promod was where I headed too. But for the past two years, Forever New has been my knight & shinning armor. My mom helped me pick this one and I couldn't love it more.

My Homecoming

Hi all :)

Schools are the most exciting years of ones' life. I remember mine: I was ever so happy to return to school and had at least one makeover to flaunt. It could be a new haircut, fitted uniforms, some accessory or even a nail paint. I had the liberty to experience two kinds of school atmospheres- Catholic and Co-ed. Both were fun in their own ways and I couldn't be more glad to leave the former and come the latter at the right age.

We used to have small parties near canteen and the first week saw murmurs of where the unofficial should be held at. Deciding the venue was only the beginning of the 2-week long ride. Studies were minimal and party related talks were the only thing one could talk about.

So while reminiscing about my school days last week, my homecoming search led me to Dresstells.com. They have a beautiful collection of  wedding, prom and homecoming dresses that would actually make you miss school very much. I secretly wish ordering one for myself; even if I don't have any party to attend to :P Just wear these beautiful dresses at home and chill all day. (Inspiration: FRIENDS)
