Who Are We?
A bunch of peg-legged hobos in search of the perfect world, equal pay, gorgeous clothes, and home/ shopping cart — vintage, one-of-a-kind, and solid gold, of course.
No, we’re kidding… only barely.
We’re not a style blog. We don’t tell you how to dress yourself; we invite you to accept yourself.
Our philosophy is simple: Style is about having fun and being comfortable in your own skin.Be brave, and dare to be different — don’t give a f*ck about what anyone else thinks.
Meet the loonies and lovelies who make up #TeamTLC.

Janani is a global citizen, she says, and adds that she knows that sounds a little pretentious but it’s true. Currently, she’s based out of Mumbai and totally in love with the city, people and manic energy! Numbers, animals, sustainable fashion, natural beauty, compassion, public art, food, being outdoors, travel and believing in the goodness of people makes her tick.

Nitya is a staunch feminist, enjoys reading and writing about issues relevant to young people. She’s also a book hoarder and board-games enthusiast. Possibly one in a million, she’s a bipartisan beverage lover: she enjoys both tea and coffee in equal measure.
