Funk Your way- Music Print Co-ords | Street style India Fashion week

Monday, 26 September 2016 / , , , , ,

New York Fashion Week Street Style - Best Street Style at NYFW ... - Elle

The vital fashion scene in India calls for sleek modern looking clothes. The tradition of wearing elaborate to this fashion event called India Fashion Week, has little to do with contemporary style and a lot more to do with making an effort. They call you fetching( if that word still exists) with random facebook status updates specifically targeted for the experi-MENTALS and random instagram comments. I know they feel a slightly more lousy about themselves, but Are you talking to me ? Well if you are then - Hello we meet again !!! 
I am a pretty vibrant woman in life and I like to display my vibrancy in the clothes I wear. My feeling has always been that if you need a piece of clothing to speak for you, it might be the best for everyone if you say nothing at all. And obviously you cannot tell an outfit to shut the hell up which is why I want to tell you all what I am wearing today. Rather what I wore to last season of India Fashion week.
Todays look is Everything with an essence of throwaway chic , that lets me live and  adjust my score of  fashion week game winking with a side of quirky.
Okay so this look also stirred a lot of raised eyeballs ,one coz of the extraordinary knee accessory which I feel is such a bold arrival from the usual fashion safety net and can be literally counted on to snare a lot of attention and second this outfit and a tiny over the little top dramatic eyemakeup--- Errr... those hashtags which you see, yes that , speak a different fashion sensory language so that I don't speak at all.  
Basically I know how to do my homework and then let my creative eye take over the rest. Eclecticism is indeed by all necessity in this big city's fashion - brazen discordance , has found its niche where uniformity once reigned. I am helping it all up by dressing up in splashes of colour so that the city rapidly loses its gray, covered with loud decorative pieces. Go on digest my Aura... Its only gonna do you good :)

Fashion week confessions and Denim skirt | Indian Street Style

Tuesday, 13 September 2016 / , , , , ,

As runway revolves every three weeks, I have started to realize how my evolutionary tendencies are at odds trying to grab that last piece of accessory driving myself nuts . I love attending fashion weeks and appreciate the dedication of designers and the clothes they offer, but Am I the right audience for most of what I see ? Forget that, coz as long one has the power of influencing,we are sending the messages and live updates straight off the ramp, bloggers and influential editors alike breaking heads with their phones, but seriously how many women are ? About 200 odd men and women sitting right in front of me on the buyer's side ,which I suspect are all there for the entertainment part of it.Extend this a bit more, maybe to create a desire for the products and self created stardom and that's it . Its a tectonic shift happening beneath us, a bit destabilizing but full of possibilities since street fashion came into play. Street fashion is not just what is influencing the runway , but is becoming high fashion.
When most of world population is either consumed with acquisition or basic survival, practical chic and taste are way too complex to sell these days. I don't know if it's me but I feel that much of the language around clothes sounds forced. While I have my own Ahaaa moments , I want to be the woman who knows what she likes and take pride in what she wears.
Clearly keeping my finger on the fashion pulse, I am that grown up girl who likes pretty outfits and love looking pretty in them. So for the next season, you may find that my fashion sense may be at odds again with contemporary tropes of luxury, that don't shout their antecedents and don't bear designer names along with a few money spinning accessories ( only accessories , I swear) already done and paid for and negotiated into coveted fashion shoots, my focus is going to be on styling.
Till then this much on trend denim skirt with  Edward scissor hands style top both from Stalk buy love is keeping me on trend collectively displaying something new in fashion and trend , more noteworthy and more honest without having to spill too much of my $$$.

Things to Do In Shanghai and What To Expect at Disneyland Shanghai | Tips and Travel Story

Wednesday, 31 August 2016 / , , , , , ,

Shanghai Yuyuan Garden - Travel China Guide

Call it audaciously sculptural or pared down and pristine , the architectural ingenuity of the old town in Shanghai engages with the eyes and imagination in such a way that you can't put your head down for a second .
Be prepared to bump into people and poles as you gaze up to appreciate the beauty .
You can't understand this unless you are over and around it .

Shanghai a city and the most idyllic location to find a  sleek and a savvy vibe that you would never run out of things to do. Its a city with modern and an interesting twist to tradition.
I absolutely loved globe trotting in a new era of personalization and identified a whole lot of local secrets and adventures the city has to offer.
Trying to sum up what to expect in the city in a wildly unfiltered way and revealing much more from a local's perspective. Resourcing it all in this blog post , so be patient lovelies.
We were booked at Hotel Howard Johnson Plaza which is straight opposite Nanjing road, one of the most happening streets of Shanghai, also coz you get to do all the touristy things around like the most famous Bund river sightseeing, which is about 750mts .I have a panoramic shot of the beautiful Shanghai at night which could just light you up .Check it all out here.
Nanjing road, is a shopping heaven . And in case your motto is to shop , this street would eat your entire two days.Nothing like walking out of the hotel lobby and bang suddenly you are in the buzz  of it all.
You can get used to the skyscrapers and sit with a beer along the Bund riverside for hours . The twinkling ferries ushers the passengers along the riverside and delivers them to the waterfront . The ferry ride is a package deal with the Pearl tower sightseeing and  should not be missed.
The locals do not speak English. Its very rare that you find someone who would jump onto having a conversation with you. I figured a few were even scared to even share some broken sentences in English hence totally ignored us when we asked them directions. I realized this on Day 2 , and after that totally figured everything out via google maps.
Shanghai is a paradise for food lovers. And those who feel a vegetarian could not survive , damn I put on weight despite all the walking. Shanghai can literally spoil you for food. And boy you can get Vegetarian food in Shanghai almost everywhere. The hotel had a vegetarian menu , plus we discovered a lot of local restaurants who could just switch any dish to your preference. There are some stand alone shacks who sell rice noodle salads, with cucumber , bean sprouts and peanuts, and you cannot miss that too. There are a lot of dotting restaurants at the Bund riverfront along with gorgeous river views, and the staff can communicate well with you for the kind of food you want..
The most popular and another must visit place is Yuyuan Graden , and the city gods temple.Its staggering lovely. It keeps the integrity of the old 15th century charm { the only temple from the ming dynasty ( that's what the sign boards told us )} It was just one stop from our hotel, and the train ride was so much fun. 
Yu yuan was stately , and inviting and boasts of the old world construction and a never forgettable china town experience. The houses and shops even starbucks is designed to keep the structure of the whole place authentic. Beautiful photos of the temple follows after the post, so don't miss any. 
We shopped for some local souvenirs and about 50 chinese fans from the market which begins just after the exit . Great to take home some inexpensive trinkets and local chinese tea and chinese toys.

The only proper way to get around Shanghai is by a Taxi, and the train.  The weather was too hot and humid . After reading some vague reviews about the hop on and hop off bus , which practically gets you around most of the sightseeing places we dropped the idea. But it sure is fun for a day, only if the weather outside doesn't get the better of you. I would still recommend sticking to taxi or the sub.
Nanjing road has this cute little toy trains - almost only a dollar expensive easily making out way on the pedestrian street carefully honking . Even if you are an adult, you would just freak out.

Now coming to where it all started . The planning , and why did we pick Shanghai this time.Well Disney may have a hand in this. Thanks to the commercials we were continuously hammered by our daughter that how eager she was to visit Shanghai disneyland as all the Frozen princesses have their legit squad there . Turns out she was right. Disney is not new for us, its magical, everywhere but a little less in Shanghai . Blame it on the sizable number of people inhabiting the city , Disney was overtly crowded. Also because Shanghai disney just opened up in June and is a little more Disneywise  trending than others.
Be prepared to walk , sweat and stand in the queues for most of the rides. People were just rattling all over the place. 
Disney Day 1 we decided to take the most newest rides first and the ones which has the maximum hours for waiting . Turned out it was everybody else's  plan too. Enter Plan B - Forget everything and just concentrate on the princess. But the good part was that we managed to catch all the shows 
( although in Mandarin ) and they were hilarious and funny . Unlike other Disney's this one is humongous ,and would impress even the most jaded tourists and locals alike.There's a reason why there is a huge waiting for most of the rides, but there were a few which were outrageously boring. Truth is you need minimum three days here, although it deflates you completely ,but I would still suggest that if you want to go to Disney , Hong kong Disney is way better( crowd wise ). Or wait till till the craze dies out a bit, Chinese wants to be the first one to taste everything , so let them do that first. Rest of the world can wait.
Disney pictures with the captions are all below. Have fun browsing through them.
I wore this striped dress from Zaful on one of the days in Shanghai. I have already mentioned how hot it was, and I needed some ventilation. Its a cute shirt dress with some trendy patches . A lot of you asked me about the bag . Its from Zaful too. It was a perfect companion for my entire trip.
Putting down all the details of the outfits below. This post is already becoming so lengthy, or may I say word- crowded . At least I braved Disney on a weekend and that too in chinese school beak holidays. A superpower that I can add to my list of achievements. I deserve a pat or some emojis thumbs up would also suffice.
Ending my travel stories with this post. I am always available to actively engage with your queries on social networks. Come let's Chat.
More on my Instagram. See you with a next outfit next week.

When creative, intense , passionate and often wildly attractive people get together they create magic. Today I break my previous mold a little and with some tiny effort and some great makeup and photography assistance , special behind the scenes touch ups with extraordinary mentions to husband who Cajoled my daughter a hundred times to not to get messy with the MUA's box,we finally accomplished this look.
Despite an image oriented age , where the soft sells more than the hard, originality is converting to stage a spectacle, and brands are looking for blogposts looking like couture and dictated silhouettes .
Its a magpie approach of dressing , trying to please all the people at all the time ( brand, readers, self)
Things move a little different with me. Trying to not look like a campaign picture , and make normality look different in clothes , more of a carefree person ,creating something new with an energy which of course doesn't cost a bomb to the readers is my ideas of a perfect editorial. And if it comes with an oomph of a little glamour, it doesn't hurt as much ... am I right ?
This look was always on my menu, and I was mood boarding a lot of things from a long time. 
The smokey makeup , the monochrome outfit, bold and nude lips at the same time ,zebra vibes etc were a few common factors that connected this look.
After years of auto applying eyeshadow and mascara for my whole life, my emotional architecture of the face changed manifolds until something fancy plopped in the camera and those rebellious clumpy lashes were shoe-horned in this look. From a bud to a bloom , I was happy bouncing around the whole house in many shades of black and white. The balloon sleeved blouse coming in from its haute pedestal of elite dressing possess a great penchant for the evening. Yes ,yes ,yes, you guys are right, this outfit is almost intentional-to tingle the filmdom.
It was a day of extravagance ,and hope you like my snappy happy presentation. Had a difficult time rejecting photos and finally choosing what to upload .

Things To Do In China, Shopping | Foshan | Guangzhou | Shanghai . OOTD- CHINA STREET STYLE

Friday, 19 August 2016 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

Bringing the back with a bang look. If you missed me then you probably know I was in China, and if you didn't then maybe I am in danger for overestimating your interest in my blog.
Just so you know , my summers were more inherently summery than yours , more Disney oriented, and more Chinese food driven.
That's why I am back here to delicately start a conversation on what you should do in China . After squeezing in about about three cities - Foshan, Guangzhou and Shanghai in my 12 day itinerary, and attracting a diverse blend of Chinese with our street style shoots, I am here to share a little  tour diary of things you should do in China. 
I got a couple of few Insta stories ( which was a new Instagram feature added just a day before I left which also saved me the hassle of taking photos within one minute of arriving giving me much photo posting clarity. Blessed !!!! 
The best feeling was the great feedback given by those on the receiving end of those founts of stories, and interest in my travel, which encouraged me to hack into VPN and enable Instagram coz every other world social platform is barred in China.
While a lot of you may feel that I am biting on the fresh figs of life, which actually I was, but came with a lot of walking and a big big language barrier. 
Our landing port was Guangzhou, and  it took us an hour drive to check in at Foshan. 
Just so you know, Foshan is a veritable destination and worldwide hub for furniture, lights and for everything your home needs. 
Visited the Chimelong water park, (Asia's No3 , )which was a waste for a non adventurous person like me, especially when those thrilling water rides scare me to death.
Nevertheless its a heaven for kids, and my daughter had a Ball and she made our money back with freqyent display of excitement.
I wore a simple cotton  dress with lace trims by Stalk Buy Love, and my cone bag and the  Floral sandals from Sammydress Clothing  being the highlight of the day were praised by many as I ventured outside our Hotel Fortuna ,to shoot some street style. 
Must recommended place to stay, as the food is crazy and if you are a Vegetarian like me, you won't be starved.
The minute we started shooting, it looked like everyone needed my attention, as around 20 people took out their phones and started recording the terrific stuff we do in India(take street photos ). This ice cream cone bag caught the fancy of everyone , which arrived in 7 days (super quick delivery ) from the website . Despite being the centre of attraction at approx 9 A.M, I also did weird things on special request, for e.g posing to eat the ice-cream.
Language was no barrier then as sign language and friendly laughs ruled and after a dozen Chinese got what they wanted and took my exclusive expressions home, I am now wondering ,if they ruined my groove at my expense ??
Coming back to Foshan, the lighting city and a few shopping malls at Zhongshan are a must visit if you are shopping for home/ interiors. 
Leaving you all with truck load of pics. 
Next up is things to do in Shanghai and a lot of shopping finds.
Ciao xx
