CutOut Shoulders Trend

Sunday, 28 October 2012 / , , , , , , , , ,

Finally an outfit click, after ages !  Its time to enjoy pre-fall weather,and before we say bye -bye to shorts and shorter sleeves, I decided to wear my cut-out shoulder blouse, for the last time ,Moreover  the upcoming month is full of festivities  n weddings and  planning an individualized outfit for each event and  that too for the whole family, is quite a task too ! I think its time to systematically plan my shopping the way I plan my blog and my life and things will be sorted and the phase will pass leisurely . I am not complaining but  these thoughts of shopping and re-doing my home have been bottling up more than any other creative outfit ideas or interesting stuff  and I need a lengthy spell out of my busy schedule!

Blender's Pride Fashion Tour,Delhi-2012

Friday, 26 October 2012 / , , , , , , , , ,

Last week Gurgaon witnessed a glam affair by hosting The eighth edition of the blender's Pride fashion tour,and it was great to watch our favorite Bollywood showstoppers setting the ramp on fire !
I attended the event on day II.

Day II saw Nida Mahmood presenting Bombay Bun Maska,the most quirkiest and well thought off name,inspired by the popular snack from Mumbai ! The collection depicted style for people who are non-pretentious and believe in creating their own expression, which was clearly visible in the fun melange of colors and patterns ! The designs were quirky, fun and Boho, and pretty much wearable as if created for the AAM JANTA(mango people like you and me) ! Her collection comprised of long dresses, psychedelic prints, earthy colors and natural materials with a hint of 70′s flair. And all those men, who are hungry for her quirky designs and prints, there is good news, as this time her collection has a place for our dear male dressers too!!! 

Heartthrob Vidyut Jamwal sizzled the ramp for Nida’s quirky collection

Neeta Lulla's collection was all about Goth which was inspired by beautiful Hollywood actress Monica Bellucci and I loved the way she played with black elements in her collection ! A revolt against slick fashions and the colorful pastels and extravagance was proved in her collection while bringing in pure sophisticated elegance that is subtle but refined ! Gorgeous models  in glamorous ghouls dressed in form-fitting  and coal-tinted  dresses, which was truly a jaw dropping sight for me,and I was literally applauding her sense of creativity !Profusion of black sheer silhouette , with touches of baroque , well accessorized with precarious stilettos and jewelry depicting religious and occult theme was the highlight of her show !

Style Diva Sameera Reddy looked chic in Neeta’s collection as the show stopper.

Shantanu And Nikhil, presented bridal couture,based on Romance,with a blend of traditional,contemporary yet modern designs !
The contours of the garments by the designers create new trendsetting silhouettes in luxurious laces to recreate the beauty of a festive carnival.. When  Creativity incorporates with color through the beautiful fabrics and laces, which is influenced by the French boudoir and baroque eras as well as the Hollywood movies of yesteryear, while creating a romantic and feminine look, then every piece has to be cream of the crop! The designers have an extensive appreciation of what makes for a stylish, elegant and quintessential bridal glamor before the big day. This appreciation could be seen in their Couture designs as well the beautiful fabrics and laces being used in their collection !

The not so quirky me !

Graphic Tee Trend

Saturday, 20 October 2012 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week started of on a hectic note, and planning my daughter's sixth birthday has lately been pushing me to the wall, keeping me busy as a beaver ! Which also means holy deprivation of getting clicked for outfits ! Forget being clicked,most days of the week I swear by my track pants and shoes which makes me feel like a schlub , missing my female playtime getting into makeup, clothes, and shoes with not even a peep into my closet !sigh! WTH? What happened to the girl in stilettos? a question which was asked by my  friend, when I ran into her twice while buying errands ! Am I dressing up to impress OTHER women and their peers? Just a thought I am pondering at right now !
Truthfully, though, I don't think my husband cares what I wear. He responds in exactly the same way when I'm totally scrubbed out as he does when I'm dressed to kill.  These pictures are from the last time being dressed(early october), which ofcource in the blogging world can be branded as ages !

In The Sun And Salty Air

Monday, 15 October 2012 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I was  really enthralled by Deepika's Look in her movie cocktail, and incase you didn't know (h)WOW  much I loved that movie(only for style inspiration) you can read me ramble here ! So much so that I even tried to recreate her beach look when I had the opportunity to ! I replaced my shorts with the aztec skirt, coz- firstly ,I don't own any till now and secondly the idea just randomly popped  when I was watching the movie at my hotel room and with whatever travel clothes I carried I attempted to come up with something like this !
 Adding a floppy hat just brought some life to the outfit ! And  yes , the knot could have been a little higher, but I leave it till the time I have  more toned abs ! On a similar note,I have challenged myself to lose 6 pounds by December ! I really don' t know how, but definitely I need to get into a size 4/2, thinking of all the festivities coming up,the reasons to put on a few inches seems obvious . And while I await to overdose myself with lots of upcoming parties and wayfaring, gearing beforehand and planning a regime is definitely needed ! Why panic later when we can take charge and fix things right now ! - Words of wisdom..

A Day at Beach

Friday, 12 October 2012 / , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

These are a few more pictures from my vacation ! Beach-side fun and outdoor photo shoots goes hand in hand, Right? Also there are a lot of blooper moments captured,but that's for the next time ! These shots were taken at Agonda beach,which is  an isolated and undiscovered beach,yet popular among the tourists ! Anyone looking for tranquility should definitely explore it ! Post October, the huts and shack open up too ! Stay in a simple hut right on the beach, and enjoy the stillness and nature. If you are traveling with family,then you should not consider this place ! We were lucky enough to spot an abandoned boat, and utilized it for some fisher woman posing ! Getting up onto that boat and getting off was a great challenge in this dress ! After we were done, Dk  ( strategically) refused to help me get out that boat , and me being me, tried to jump off that thing on my own, It wasn’t pretty but it was entertaining for the onlookers ! I even did a victory Lap, well sort off, when my feet were back on sand !
Never challenge a girl stranded in a situation or under pressure, more when she is not dressed for the expected- I hope he learnt his lesson !

Organic way by Samtana

Tuesday, 9 October 2012 / , , ,

Today I am happy to introduce you to Samtana, a pioneering brand  with a range of locally and internationally-designed, high-quality and custom designed t-shirts. They are among the first ones to  brainchild the concept of crowd-sourcing to create its unique, limited edition t-shirts. Artists are invited to submit designs that reflect the zeitgeist of contemporary youth. Shortlisted designs are polled on Facebook and at festivals and other youth gatherings, and the most popular ones are chosen for production.
 I was really impressed and held by their artistic designs which speaks of its uniqueness bargained at a fraction of a price ! plus ,all Samtana shirts are made in India using 100% organic cotton,  that is grown free of harmful chemicals and pesticides. I love buying Eco-conscious Indian brands, and feel that every once in a while if given a chance ,we should  be loyally promoting them too ! 
The concept of wearable art is pretty much new and exciting for me, and their designs are different and appealing ! I have a liking for soft cotton tees and dresses which are really good for summers but have barely a few organic ones, because they are little rare to find . With Samtana, it would now be easily possible to buy organic cotton tees online,every once in a while !

Do check out their website and their Facebook page and browse among the eleven designs they have currently(for male/female) ,and more by the end of next week, and also avail a special discount of 10% by entering the code- FASHIONFLITEGOESORGANIC on checkout ! Free shipping with cash on delivery is available across India !! Hope you too can flutter with style in one of their distinguished and original creations !

Judgemental -How many times (iii)

Friday, 5 October 2012 / , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

After dipping my feet into the sandy beaches,adorned with miles of palmy trees, we decided to go on an exploring trip ! Rented a bike and went beach combing ! Came back tired ,just in time to watch a spectacular sunset and took some candid shots ! Later in the evening attended some Indian musical classical concert and did some dancing too ! Since this skirt of mine had already become a favorite(refer previous post),this time I paired it with a cropped tee and some statement earrings and wore a neon lip-color,so that my family could easily find me in the dark !
I was so lucky to get this skirt from e-bay for a great bargain of 30$ and  feel I have done complete justice to the price since I already wore it a number of times(rain gods choice).  Men and women are very different when it comes to this, isn't it? but we all know women are more into looks and outer appearance than men, and its simple because they want to remain and feel special ! Of cource there is no harm in this , but discerning people on the basis of clothes(always) can get them wrong at times !!

Have you worn any outfit continuously in a row? and that too in front of the same people?Do share your thoughts !

The denim on denim trend is back on fashion table,and is such a style which can transit one from weekdays to weekends effortlessly ! Denims today have changed from being just jeans.From bags and accessories they are flowing everywhere ! I am so glad as I get to wear this trend more often now, while I look at my childhood pictures of wearing a denim jacket on top of my skirt ! I loved it then and I love it now  ! And I have been wearing  them since then, seriously since then ! Thank god - you at least saved me from all those( living in 90's) stares  ! Do you wear your favorite pieces even during non faddy seasons?
This is my entry for the Infb- remix
