Paper Town for a Paper Girl



Paper Towns by John Green


I had read Paper Towns by John Green about a year ago. Looking for Alaska and The Fault in our Stars are the other books I have read from the same author. Paper Towns  is a coming of age story written with so much simplicity yet so much depth. This book is my favorite among all his books I have read (I still need to read Abundance of Katherines). 

Yesterday I went to watch the movie adaptation of this book, and let me say you I was not dissapointed at all. The character representation were so close to what I had imagined and loved how the overall point of the whole story was put forth for the non readers understand easily. 
People fail to understand how complex a human being is, and that each of us is made of several layers. Just because you see the outer layer (which may not even be a layer) you misjudge the person for not who he/she is but who you want him/her to be. Values like importance of taking risks and stepping out of your comfort zone, the societal ideas of happiness and importance of friendship is displayed is such a finesse, my heart skipped several beats multiple times while reading the book as well the movie. 



Watch the trailer:

Black is the new Black





          This Outfit of the Day shows how I am able to recreate a new look by repeating what you have in your closet. Matter of fact, I have worn all of these pieces and coincidentally posted them individually on this blog. For instance the dress here I have worn is in my Show Some Skin post and the Top in my Austin post. Since it was a day time look I went with my bowler hat and my boots, giving me a more laid back feel.

Cheers!

Pragmatism


          Even though I was very late to hop on this band wagon, no complaints, because here I am! After watching two complete seasons of 'House of Cards' (available on Netflix) marathon in less than three days, I sure as hell know the word 'Pragmatism', the meaning behind it and how efficient it can be . Although....even after binge watching the entire series (2 seasons) I don't think I can actually apply 'Pragmatism' realistically in my life (I wish I could).
         I can go on and on about how this show is such a page turner (or in this case... next episode clicker) but I won't. I feel you have to see it for yourself and then decide if this is your cup of tea.  I would like to add that it is unquestionably addicting and Kevin Spacey is absolutely brilliant! (so are the other actors). Most definitely a #mustwatch .

Have a good day everybody.

Woodland

     


            As you may have already seen, my 'Peter pan' collar fetish hasn't died yet ( I thought it wouldn't last long) and this dress makes me look like a fourteen year old (which I admit, I don't have to try so hard to achieve ). Pfttt!!! honestly, who cares?! I love how effortless this dress is and sooo very cute (polka dots!) . I swear I would wear this everyday, if I could.
           Since I carry my Macbook all the time & everywhere I go (yes! I am weird like that..) I have my beautiful tote, which my dad kindly gifted me about three years ago, from Woodland ( its a authentic leather product company in India). I love this bag to death, it is very sturdy and big enough to hold my books AND my laptop. P.S. it also oddly looks very similar to the burgundy Marc Jacobs bag.
          Have a good day beautiful people :)
