Life in India ... so far

1:01 AM

10th January 2011
Black Sweater - Banana Republic [09']; Blazer - UO [09'] 
Tights - TJ Maxx[09']; Boots - DP Italia [10']

It was my Dad's birthday on 10th Jan and we all went for dinner at an Oriental Restaurant. The winters in Delhi have been harsh this time around. I have had to layer up like never before. This is definitely not the time to consider trends/fashion but only to tae all possible precautions from the skin-peircing-cold-winds!

11th January 2011
Scarf - Burberry [09']
Sweater Coat - French Connection [08']
Boots - DP Italia [10']

Recently we applied for the change in Visa status at the U.S. Embassy in Delhi and I was amazed to see that each.and.every immigration officer spoke fluent Hindi. I repeat, fluent-sans-American-accent-Hindi! I was in shock for the first two minutes and eventually in a delightful bewilderment to hear them speak to all the applicants in Hindi with hand gestures and Indian mannerisms. 

13th January 2011
Turtle Neck - Gap [09']; Shoes - Tory Burch [10']
Sweater - Banana Republic [10']; Jeans - Miss Sixty [08']
Cape - Mom's [at least 15 years old!]

We saw the last week's Hindi movie release - No one Killed Jessica - and thoroughly enjoyed it. Being on holiday and without any responsibilities we were able to catch the matinee show. I was surprised to see that on a weekday afternoon the theatre was still HOUSE FULL! Don't these people have any work? Or is everyone on a vacation like us? Anyhoo, what was even more entertaining was how people sitting around us would predict the next scene a minute in advance - loudly ... and no one would mind that! Husband said, 'Yahan sab movie mil-jhul kar dekhte hain. Jaise ghar pe T.V. dekh rahe hoen.' *giggle* [Loose translation in english - Everyone watches the movie here as a group, like one watch T.V. shows at home with family.]

14th January 2011
Pashmina - Mom's ; Sweater - ASOS [10'] 
Leggings - TJ Maxx [09']; Boots - DP Italia [10']

The last two days have not been as C.O.L.D. and I am able to get out of the house in a cape or a pashmina without shivering my a** off! Let's hope this continues for rest of the month. For the record, I do not wish for hot-humid-days just warm Sunny Winters

My dad and sis just returned from Delhi and told me all about the cold...sounds awful!! :S Anyway love all your outfits...esp how you added that burst of color with those tory burch flats and asos cardigan!! And yes how annoying are all the ppl at the movies!! I experienced the same thing when I was in India...phones ringing, babies crying, and people coming in half an hour late and screaming, " OH NOOOOOOOO" as loud as they can while walking in...grrrrrrrrrrrr

  45. this winter has been cold... but am sure delhi is at its worst! mom's cape is super stylish and the sweater coat from french connection is also nice. btw, you look like you've lost some weight... the cheeks are longish? maybe it's the quality of the pics or too much wandering in the cold! despite it all, you are still very stylish:)) hats off to you!

  48. I love ur sweater coat from French Connection!!and the pink bag is to die for!!
    my mom was also complaining abt the cold and how she doesn't feel like stepping out at all.

    btw, did u get ur visa?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I too love that sweater coat and pink bag and the combination!

    Cold weather. Hot woman.

    Were the immigration officers Indian or gora? Because if gora, I'm surprised to hear that they can pronounce Hindi fluently... my gora children still have problems pronouncing words like khidki!! That 'rrrd' sound is an innate Indian thing.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Heart the pink scarf and how it complements the bag...

    and I simply can't get over those tory pumps...the orange if mindblowing... i am looking for summer collections to start and so i can blow my "savings" on something orange...

    no one killed jessica...liked it too!!and was pleasantly surprised they didn't censor the language used by rani...
