Ok, I can’t keep my hands away from this blog and cannot but help share the information I found..

Fall is my favorite season when it comes to dressing up as there is so much to experiment with and especially this year .. when there are lesser rules and more fun with colors.

For Fall, the next colors in line are

Shale Green & Gray– ( more on a murkier side) is a new gray this season and most of the designers used this color liberally for Fall 2007.

Gray    The color gray was every where on the Fall 2007 runway . Be it shoes, bags , jackets , pants or shirts..

Dusk & Purple – Purple is the color of  wealth and extravaganza. A deep eggplant purple with neutral tans or beige is a conservative color combination. Green and purple can be a striking combination in deep or bright jewel tones or use lighter shades for a cheerful, spring like feel. Pink and purple has feminine appeal.

The Colors of Fall… September 13, 2007

  The Colors of Fall….

all colors

When it comes to colors, everyone has their personal favorites. And these colors, for that particular person, become evergreen…In addition there are colors that come and go with theseasons and the fashions.. Every year textile and color pundits predict color, fabric   & fashion trends to welcome and inspire people towards change ..

On the left is a picture that depicts the color trends for fall 2007 Men & Women. Some of the shades of these colors like the ‘Burnt Ochre’ – second from the top, ‘Chili Pepper’- third from the top, ‘Stargazer’ – fourth from the top, ‘Lemon Curry’ – eighth from the top & ‘Purple Wine ‘ –last in the picture are visible on the runway for spring 2008 as well.

So if you are picking up a piece (besides jackets, which are obviously winter wear) for fall this season make sure you pick from these colors as they can be used in summer as well!

Season’s hot pick and color of the year is ‘Chili Pepper’ – the color of strength, health & passion.

In India, the color red signifies purity, mostly used in weddings & in China red symbolizes celebration and luck, used in many cultural ceremonies that range from funerals to weddings and at the start of every Chinese lunar year.                                                                                                                       pepper                                                    

Red draws attention and a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element. A perfect color for accessories like scarves, handbags or jackets.

Fall Color also not to be missed this season is Smokey Gray. A color which was widely used by designers for Fall 2007.

Some key looks and my favorites from the runway of fall 2007 where these colors were used are –

Carafe – An alternative to black or charcoal

Bootie Calls!!! September 4, 2007

Bootie Calls!!


I ran a poll about shoes on my face book group called WhatsBuzzing. I asked group members to choose between booties and Knee length boots… And…. Booties WON!!!

Also backing that win, in a research conducted last year, heels were the world’s number one Fetish & I am pretty sure that if I had another poll comparing boots /shoes with any other article, boots would have still won!

It is interesting to note that once again, this boots trend is a revival of sorts, as often happens in the fashion world.. Boots were exceedingly popular during the World War I. These were usually cloth topped and front laced. Feathers,
rosettes, fur, velvet ribbons, lace and embroidery were all used to add interest below the ankles.

So the new trend in shoes for fall dates back to 20th century and also matches the recent lure for heels..

This blog is dedicated to all shoe lovers…..

Check the deals from all our store fronts at WhatsBuzzing and take a pick!!



Booties go very well with wide leg trousers & mini dresses. A classic style is to wear them with tights and a short tunic dress. Contrast tights will really look nice with booties!!

Abercrombie & Fitch August 21, 2007

Abercrombie has been a destination for me and my friends from the days that we were not even living in US. Every time we visited US, as tourists, we would go to Abercrombie…

And they are still a popular destination.. I was browsing the website yesterday and found these pieces really appealing.. I ended up buying some stuff for hubby and few pieces for me..

Men’s – my picks

T’s – casual and classy



Shirts – Will look very nice when worn with khakis. Though be sure to pick the “right size” as these shirts will look good if the they fit nicely around your chest but not if they hang too loose..



A dash of Color



Some Accessories




Women’s

I love wearing cardigans with trousers or skirts and I usually team them up with scarves. Here’s what I thought was the best at Abercrombie..



This green V neck will look really nice with flared trousers and yellow ochre scarf (shown here to illustrate the combination, though the scarf and trouser are not from Abercrombie)..

& some accessories ..
