Pastels And Culottes

Monday, 20 July 2015 / , , , , , ,

Dressed up in two trends yet again - Pastels and Culottes Before this trend became a thing, I had always imagined myself wearing a pastel dress to a tea-party or something maybe more powdery like a coral shorts to a beach. But never in my thoughts I had thought of pairing femininity with a little androgyny. Little if you are wondering,The humble Culotte can  be tomboy-playful , Not just girly sweet, but they can be often softened if u choose to throw a blush pink layer, a mint bag, and get all Macarooni. 
What more you could think of is some sweet thoughts like you in Paris, walking in seasons trendy clothes, and just walked out of a major fashion show making pastels less pretty and more "ME " 
Usually I would love to go for prints, but today, I am wearing a little stripe in action via- StalkBuyLove. Unless u don't wanna catch me dead in picture perfect pink ;) these Culottes allowed me to have a grown-up and strong take on pastel, still allowing me to show my girly side:)

Inspired By Fashion Week

Sunday, 12 July 2015 / , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today's outfit is a Re-Run of a sneak peek u all would have seen,during Fashion week days. Its finally making it to the blog , yes thank god .
For most of us who make it to the lavishness of the fashion week with its own dress codes and haunts, its a fantasy on the runway,while the others gaped their phones and their favourite fashion people live streamed pictures on Instagram. Fashion show days have a different kind of vibe. 
Taking the leverage of these events, we common mortals(btw you can easily identify these people at fashion week) fingers tapping on phone, slowly strolling the venue, eye contact minimal, sipping tea and in between pointing phones at a mirror for pictures to cover on the blog.Basically Low profile that is. 
While there are those flaunting their guccis in the face, air-kissing with designers , talking as loud as they could with a verbal fashion diarrhea and  some slangs which I don't understand, a walk which would put a shame to any online couture queen, papped by new interns(you would find them  on second row and how ?) who specifically stalked these self -acclaimed diva(s) on Instagram only to the day where they could bolster their online validation and rub a few goody bags in the face of their deprived friends boasting about their fashion connections. 
I know for a fact that fashion has a hierarchy. The influencers like editorials wears anything which speak more directional pieces, buyers -more of commercial dressing , while its the bloggers who care about creative  and original design  and  good craftsmanship. 
They explore,  translate runway fashion to convertible fashion(budget it too , if need be) for a thousands of those who doesn't know how it's done. To me, they are the actual influencers who pay attention to designers collection and then closely create items heavily influenced by or have similar elements and manage to stay on "Point " And its when they actually irrigate the garden of Self-Made. 
So all my lovely bloggers out there- Just  believe in your HYPE, keep doing the awesome work you do coz  REAL-ITY is made up of being  Real, and you all are the only ones having that.

P.S- This is just a rant, an observation, and doesn't mean to hurt anyone's emotional balance. Take it in good humour .

The Kaftan Story

Somethings in fashion are still invoked as a symbol of exoticism. Believe you me, when an outfit is exotic, and wearer friendly, you don't think twice, rather blink twice, but just buy it in the moment.
A garment that tastes like summer, regal in its own way, and is sure to give u a flavour of wanderlust is Kaftan. I mean just look at it, will u? I can now officially float. Its casual and loose ,yet can be easily be dressed up for more glam.
I wonder why styles like these aren't pushed in the maternity section ? Why the celebrity Mom cover girl on a Parenting magazine always have to wear dungarees or maxis? Although this post is not about preaching motherhood, but I have stalked enough maternity magazines in my life, to reach to a conclusion, where nothing could be as comfy as this. 
I loved spilling out of bounds for once  and accessorize this look, to keep the free-spirited nature of the  garment in flow. It helped me paint a picture of poise . The plus was that we seized these pics at dawn. Delhi is always synonymous with India Gate, and we all know that it is an attraction in its own. I had been waiting patiently for months to capture the beauty of the place at sunrise. Let me know if u like the pictures ?

Work Wear Monochrome

Going down the nostalgic lane, "I catch myself in the mirror, skinny self , in my long pencil skirt which had a half sheer bottom , pin striped shirt that fit, black block heels and mauve lippie. It was an era of "Never a slave for fashion " and I was the only one breaking rules. I liked the influence and power that came along with dressing well back in those days. Even now, beyond that, I liked the way dressing sharp makes me feel. 
I have never been a fan of workwear since the time I became girlboss. Obviously you don't need an expert-endorsed outfit to wear to work. Sometimes its less complicated than you may think, and in more present times, if you are cool to experiment, its actually a no brainer. For eg this Monochrome Co-ords from Stalk Buy Love. What I needed to throw in was a good pair of hoops, wine lips and a popping bag , and I was done to shake up my office style and call it power dressing.
Its always a great idea to invest in basics. And with that I mean more of blacks an whites in the closet. This way they could be easily paired with a lot of other pieces.You should really know your stuff coz ,No one's gonna discount you for dressing well. But they'll sure as hell discount you for dressing like a slob, so why give them a chance ?

App in Spotlight -PicPal

Thursday, 25 June 2015 / , ,

We all have caught up on the new Fad, ie. the Selfie fever, and its catching up like wildfire.From teens to adults, to aunts , all saturate their socials with selfies, so much so, that the Oxford dictionary named selfies, as the word of the year in 2013. So when there are all sorts of selfies yet to be witnessed ahead, what if I tell you I have just the app for you to make this seemingly endless trend more fun and lets you live in the moment ?
Let me introduce PicPal to you.

PicPal is a fun selfie sharing app that allows us to take selfies with our loved ones, who are particularly distant at a time.
No matter whatever the circumstances are , nothing could be more happening to capture moments on the go . Especially for those who love to take selfies every now and then.
Now you can do all this in real time, simultaneously, even while your loved ones are not around and keep up with your long distance relationships.
Picpal is a fun place to share real time photos with your family and  friends and then leave the rest for the app to give you a a single collage with everyone in it. Yup, you and your friends, all in a single frame, together. So no more missing your friends.

How To use: Just sign up using facebook. if your friends are on Picpal, you can see them on the apps as Picpal contacts. You can send them an invite to connect and start Picpaling.
Picpal does not automatically send requests to your friends. If your friends are not on Picpal,you can go and select "Tell a Friend " feature within the menu, and send them an invite using facebook, FB messenger or even WhatsApp . Once your friends have joined Picpal, you can start a Picpal by inviting a maximum of 3 people at the same time to take selfies :)
Once asked to join, They would see a notification alert like this .

As of now in the current feature, your friends have 15 mins to join you in the app, and make sure u have asked  them to enable push notification so that they can see alerts when their friends send them one.  Its easy to just launch the app and go. Just tap the start button screen. Once you are done taking your pic, now you can select and invite your friends to take theirs.
To test this fun app, I decided to do Picpal session with my toddler nephews, who are staying in London. Of course with the help of their parents. They paid us a visit six months back, and I thought it would be interesting to be in touch while I  try out the app too, and create some fun collages with the kids in the frames for memories sake .

So in a nutshell, you invite your friends, take selfies separately  and leave it to Pic collage to bind the rest.
This is just a glimpse of what we did. And we could not stop at taking just one .

Sharing: Share your PicPal collage/s within the app with your friends, or post them online for other people to see like and comment. Your friends can make you feel loved by  hearting, liking and commenting on the pics ( which I am guessing its the first app I have come across ) It's like a perfect collage app with a Pic chat feature which specializes in keeping communication personal , unless we want to share publicly.

So gone are the days, when selfies were just a screenshot of your video chatting. We have arrived past that and while our phone may have every app to lessen the distance with our dear ones, but nothing is as real as feeling real, and Picpal gets this feeling delivered right when you want to.

You can now download  Picpal on both Android and IOS devices.
