How to be Fashionable with a Cast on Your Foot….

It started with a whatsapp picture posted in a friends’ group with a caption that Urvashi has fractured her foot…..really…I couldn’t believe , she seemed fine and OK a couple of days back, now suddenly I get to know this….  she is an active girl with jam packed diary….well!!!…. those of you who do not know  Urvashi, to begin with she  has more visa stamps on her passport than a whole lot of us put together, she travels to 2-3 countries every month and lives out of a suitcase literally and to imagine her foot cast in a plaster…pretty unimaginable…and whenever she is back in the city she has a rocking social schedule…cast in this scene is pretty pretty unimaginable…… right!!!

I rushed to see her as soon as I could and she didn’t care enough how much it hurt, not word about her pain , just a bit about how it all happened…what she was most worried about was that what  will she wear all through as the cast would limit her fashion options…..we women will be women after all…..right….hugs and chats later yours truly and she decided to put together a fashion post, How to be Fashionable with a Cast on your foot.…. I styled her and she was my muse for that day….

While you cannot put Urvashi down or out for long, she has been hopping all over house on one leg and making sure she attends as many lunches and soirees she can within the complex….she is working as diligently as ever..her bedroom has become her office and all her meetings are on Skype ….she definitely has a spirit so wonderful that you are nothing but inspired….

Besides being this strong, confident and well travelled girl she is also so fond of everything that spells fashion and style….and when you have your truly for a friend it goes without saying that we had to have some fashion fun …and also prove a point that ….that cast should not limit you to not play dress up and have fun….I raided her closet one evening and styled these looks…Her Husband Saurav joined in the fun..helped me with the pictures and we almost ended up competing with each other as to who got the better shots….here goes….the shots!!


Look 1: Urvashi has lovely hair, God Hair Spa(ed) and Ironed her hair…she has fine highlights and loves that they have grown in length now, keeps her hair open always with a side parting and side bangs… so I decided to keep it open but opted for a middle parting for her, neatly pinned at the back , it made her look a different and she loved it….we chose a shimmery dress that she had ordered online (that’s what she has been doing these days….shopping online like all stores are going to run out of clothes by the time the cast comes out…he hehehe ),which was easy to slide on without her being bothered about the foot… raided her accessory bag , found these fun big earrings in red and dull gold, and we were ready to rock the first look….she had such happy gleam in her eyes doing this….for you all to see…

Look 2 : Next on was her chevron print long skirt, which she told me she always wears like a very creative of her…so it was worn like a dress (also that with a cast on she wouldn’t be able to wear a long skirt which would have bothered her in walking and could have caused a stumble had it got stuck under her foot), I tied her hair in a fun hairstyle , changed the liner to winged , a lot of blush later….here we have ….see she is enjoying it all…

Look 3: She doesn’t wear buns….so I had to had to make her wear a messy bun which she absolutely loved, added a bunstick for a little fun..took a chunky chain necklace and wrapped it like a bracelet around her wrists…voila she was ready to get pictures done….she was already perfecting her poses by now… for you to see…
