Confessions: Why blogging is now a chore for Fashion Bombay

It's never easy for a blogger to admit this, ever, but after 6 years of blogging it has finally happened. The bloggers' bloc is a real thing. It may seem frivolous and vain to most but Fashion Bombay has been our first love, our baby born from passion. Over the years, like any person in the limelight the pressure set in. It hit us hard. While I gave up instantly, Sonu being quite the fighter, worked harder to make a good post. But then that is precisely where we lost the plot. Fashion Bombay was about showcasing real, wearable fashion for women everywhere. We were about recycling and budget buys and making everyday basic look chic. Blogging wasn't work, it was something we looked forward to. Slowly, the fashion world caught up pushing us to do posts that increasingly got costume-y and we were a clear case of trying-too-hard. 

We even discussed shutting us down completely but neither me nor Sonu could come to terms with that. Fast forward to today, we have decided to take a step back and revisit the passion, the fire and the sheer love for blogging, shopping, dressing up and our definitions of style that define us as  people. 

In an honest bid to revive the true spirit of Fashion Bombay, we will take a couple of months to revamp, regroup and find our true selves that we lost over the years. We want to emerge stronger, better, truer and importantly happier bloggers. 

A blog born out of love deserves all that and more.

Love & Cheesecake

The salted caramel cheesecake is what my dreams are made of, of late. Easily one of my favorite places to hang out close to home, Hiranandani Powai is beautiful for a stroll. In the recent times, I find myself drifting to good old classics when it comes to fashion albeit with a twist. Keeping my style simple is quickly becoming convenient (with the baby) and also truly enjoyable. 

As a fashion blogger it is easy to get disorientated with one's style choices since you start dressing for the camera unknowingly. Once you consciously shed that lens you see yourself becoming more 'you' and that's what I'm loving about my clothes lately. 

This is what I wore for a quick grocery pit-stop and cheesecake. All-white with a light quilted cotton jacket
