Je Ne Veux Pas Travailler

Its the weekend again time for me to get lazy haha.
 i have work to do but it doesn’t get me down because its the weekend, i don’t have to wake up at 8am!!
My friend gifted me this coat, fits me perfectly, a pop of colour for dull cold rainy days that we’ve been having lately. And this the perfect summer coat. Team it up over a plain dark colored dress, you don’t wanna be too colourful and a lil black beanie for your head. European summer rains ain’t like the hot indian summer rain… its still cold , wonder when will real summer come.
And this the ‘Great Wall of Toli’.
those fake flowers i bought em to make headbands but then i decided they look better on my wall then on my head so there they are, behind my lamp. i hardly use it unless im sleeping alone which happened only once. the lil dried flower my classmate boys gave it to us all on women’s day, post card from INDIA :D, chinese placemat on top of the lamp from my Chinese roommate as well as that lil note card. And on the top its a textile thing i made on ‘a place i dream of’ and that’s Paris. and yes the tag to remind me everyday my one saviour and hero, my JESUS

If you’re wondering what my post title means…..it is in French that says “i donot want to work”
This a song by this band called pink martini from USA. I heard this song over and over in a ‘ face cream advertisement’ when in India and i always would stop myself to listen to the song. I came upon it again here and now i want you to listen too …you might have already but just listen to it again 😀
i love the song, its preppy and makes me happy even though i really don’t understand a bit of it, but i like to mimick the way it sounds and sing it my way haha
Happy weekend,
Stay safe and stay Blessed,
Love Toli x x x


Marry me in red and white!

Please don’t get tired to see me in this blazer :p
I love this blazer of mine, i can never get enough of it. And the best part bout it is that it just goes with almost every outfit of mine ^_^. This my new vintage pleated collar dress. I bought this because i fell in love with the horse carriage print that’s there both on the front and the back on the lower part of the dress. The dress was bit too long so i got it chopped and sewed to my likes.
i call this set a red riding hood-snow white- cinderella theme haha.

Loads of Love,
Stay Peachy,

Just a few of us but it seemed like a crowd of us 😀 The setting was so vintage and right behind us were two fish ponds 😀 Cupcakes and sausages and vintage tea sets and cookies and homemade brownies, tea and ice tea and coffee and never ending!!! You guys would have loved being there too 😉

                                   i wanted to steal this bike away in my car but i couldn’t 😦 :p

Happy birthday again Wonde, God bless you much!!!


Sing Balloon with polkas

Hey Peaches,

                   Have you been up to much lately?? Well i have been so caught up with work outside my blog world. As a consultant designer for Nagaland Handloom and Handicraft Corporation, i’m presently working on a home furnishing collection which is a totally new endeavor for the company and they are having high expectations on me so i gotta really work my head off and that’s whats been keeping me so busy.
               Im working the collection under three themes – florals, geometric and stripes. Its gonna be preppy, play of colors yet minimal and modern.Its all gonna be woven which would later go for digital printing and embroidery. I’m planning for the samples to be completed by the end of November so if any of you come for the Hornbill festival on the first week of December, you’ll get to have a first peek to the collection 😀 Anyways ill keep you updated about it 😉

                 Tomorrow ill show you my new DIY surface embellished cardigans that i’ve made through these busy days…i’m hoping you’d like it. So keep updated and lookout for my next post.
 All my loving to you,
God bless you,

DIY : pink collar shirt

Hey ho!
      today i want to show you something i made. I bought a plain pink collar shirt last week and to prep it up i worked on some surface embellishment around the edges of the collar that has an Indian kiss to it. i used my broken earring as a huge leaf motif and along with it i’ve used small pearls, golden flower sequins and pink, silver and gold beads.
     You could prep yourself up, this shirt along with a pastel shade high waist-ed skirt or trousers or even shorts. This would be perfect for a summer lawn party or even for a lunch out with your friends. Try it yourself, its easy and very pretty when done.


Hope you get inspired 🙂
Stay put in the Lord,
Love, toli x x
