Earnest and Eager......Nidhi Sharma


“Elegance is a glowing inner peace. Grace is an ability to give as well as to receive and be thankful. Mystery is a hidden laugh always ready to surface! Glamour only radiates if there is a sublime courage & bravery within: glamour is like the moon; it only shines because the sun is there.”

There are a few people who have this unremitting thirst for knowledge. They like to passionately read about a certain topics or follow them ardently, for them any object of desire or just a passer by has the capacity to ignite interest. This thirst for knowledge drives them to explore life and its many dimensions. They can find joy in the smallest of things and absolutely random objects can also hold their attention for hours . You can always have a joyful experience to sitting and talking with them on different things like fashion, painters , writers , social documentaries , current news , moral debates, topics etc etc......it's a good mental exercise. You may or may not agree on the same notions but at least the discussions turns out fruitful.

 One such very dear friend of mine, actually my best friend is Nidhi Sharma.




 She has been one of my top sources of information for years now and has gifted me the joy of knowing so many new Designers, Stylists, Reviews , Books , Shows and Movies. Like me she also likes to shop for vintage and unique one of a kind clothes and jewellery and we have spent numerous evenings down flea markets and garage sales hunting for our objects of desire . She is also a fashion designer and has worked for names like Maxmara and currently lives in New Delhi, India. 

When I asked her about her utmost favourite fashion possessions she brought out her absolutely gorgeous vintage finds.

" This dress is an old piece, I don't even remember where I picked this one up from but I absolutely love it. It is made up of Crepe de chine/silk crepe fabric and all the embroidery and detailing that you see in black is hand done. It's an entire panel of handwoven macramé that has been appliquéd on to the dress. I admire and respect handmade art forms dearly and hence this dress holds a special place in my heart and will continue to do so for years to come."




"Another Favourite of mine are these Gold Jhumpkis (earrings) gifted to me by my grandmother. She is a piece of my heart and I am really close to her hence these being gifted by her means the world to me, making them really precious, below are some pictures of me wearing them."






" Lastly, I love this vintage gold butterfly brooch pin (also gifted by my grand mother). I have worn it on several occasions and it has always brought home several compliments. Another reason why I wear it so often is that this brooch is very delicate and feminine hence goes with almost everything I wear. At times I have gone out without any jewellery, wearing just the brooch and it has still been noticed and admired, hence it has become a wardrobe staple for me now."
