Well, the rain Gods have blessed Bangalore for sure! A blue mini dress had been on my mind for a long time as I’d been scrounging for something that is lightweight and perfect for the rainy weather. After all, it’s easier to manage a dress in this weather rather than long flowing pants or skirts. So, I found myself out on a weekend exploring the tiny lanes lined with greenery – a sight that is so rare to find in this city where everyone is busy chasing goals, building flyovers and expanding in the name of development.
I picked this beautiful blue dress from Zink London. Yeah, for those following my posts would know I have a slight inclination for this brand. I loved the light floral print which was not too overpowering and is adding a dainty look to the overall outfit. I picked it up after rummaging through racks and racks of clothing in Orion Mall, Bangalore. As always, I like to keep the accessories to the minimal.
Here’s what I noticed overall in the collections that I browsed:
- Most of the trends were loud
- The print-on-print was not working well for every design
- The fabrics were certainly not great
- The cut of the dresses I saw were hardly interesting – most followed a plain pattern and some didn’t have any cut, with loud designs screaming for attention and price tags that went through the roof.
Now, as much as I love fashion, I believe we should always watch our budget before we purchase. The finishing of the garment, the fabrics and fit – all these three are so vital. Well, it’s alright if you are street shopping hence the expectations would be low. I was quite bored with the designs being sold by well-known and popular brands wherein I’d definitely give full marks for the display. The garments, on their own, were nothing exciting.
After my little black dress post, I felt now is the time to wear the little blue dress and head out for an evening with a friend. As this city is indeed bursting with people, I found this cute little cafe tucked away in the corner and serving delectable items. The interiors are pretty, the outer seating area caught my attention. Cafe Nosh is quite popular with the college going crowd but attracts families as well. I loved the variety in their menu and the lovely Oreo cake that I gobbled without clicking a photo! 🙂
All in all, if you are familiar with the garden city and love some quiet spots, I’d recommend you hop over to Cafe Nosh preferably in the off-peak hours. Even then, if you love a place which is buzzing with excitement, this place is also for you!
Don’t forget to hop by to their Facebook page here. Cafe Nosh is located near Sahakarnagar and has now opened its second outlet in Yelahanka New Town.
