Mix The Prints

Tuesday 24 December 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Recently I discovered that I could do so much with my current wardrobe, that I don't mind going on a shopping ban ( I am keeping that for the New years resolution as of now )
Until an year back, I was minimalistic at heart, and enjoyed keeping the look clean accompanied with plain textures ! A sight of plains, neutrals and stripes dominated my closet then. Today all I wanna do is just add essential trends and freshen up my basics rather than go on shopping endlessly. I don't think I would have tried mixing prints a few years ago, but am finally glad, that I decided to walk this route.As of now, lets call it a mixed-print baby step .
 If mixing prints feels too overwhelming, try layering a long-sleeve striped top under something solid.  Take the look to a next level by adding a printed accessory (leopard shoes, scarf, camo pants, etc.).

By the time you read this post I would be taking time off from the blog for a while and spend these holidays with my family and in self enrichment ! Delhi is going to be frigid in few days(as per weather reports) And I am gonna shake off these winter chills, by going to someplace warm !! It might be difficult to update on the blog, but I would be live and very active on my Insta feed !
 Merry Christmas folks

Brand Spotlight- VANS SHOES

Saturday 21 December 2013 / , , , , , , , , , ,

The changing weather calls for changes in wardrobe, and while adding or removing layers from your outfit is simple , it’s your shoes you've got to commit to all day. 
Vans Shoes asked me to try out something from their new collection, and since there is nothing like enough shoes I decided to observe some abstinence in shopping for myself and have a peek at the men collection this time and asked Mr. Hubs  (to make an appearance ) and do a guest post on the blog ! Over to him !
About Vans- Vans is a United States (U.S) Based manufacturer of shoes and is quite active in action sports industry.
The Look- These Bedfords are tasteful, yet understated. Now-a-days Elegance is most often defined by understated simplicity, and for me to get near to any shoe is that it needs to definitely attest to this rule !The mid top shape conveys a cool downtown edge, and this style could be your immediate update to a classic skate shoe too !! Its simple non fussy design lets the wearer's outfit do the talking.
The Feel-They have sturdier silhouette, fall friendly texture and a very cushioned feel. Every step feels padded .These are great for smaller ups and about steps and lends a good traction too. There is a bit of weight to them, but that no way compromise or hinder the comfort levels , And  why not ,the thick soles could help me confidently man all those winter sidewalk shenanigans- Howz that ? 
How and what to wear them with - If your office doesn't have a strict dresscode then you can wear them with your casual business wear. They not only lend a very fresh factor vibe , but would even help in building a trendy look !! Yup that's what we did do - built the whole look around the shoe !
Since they are perfect for casual wear and active wear both, They will blend great with a pair of denims or Chinos too !!
Tip- For the winters pick Black or Brown so that you sync in the wintery season !

 Color, Design and Properties - Brown color, Leather upper, Round brown and gold hiker style laces,Off the wall tag on tongue, Mid top design with new slim profile, Waffle rubber sole .
Vans Shoe collection available on and
Also Available at Ambience mall

Lavie Accessories New Collection for A/W-2014

Wednesday 11 December 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Last Weekend  I attended Lavie's Bloggers Meet and greet at Select City walk , Saket. The whole idea was to introduce us to the new range of bags and footwear collection and it was glad to see the brand incorporating the latest trends. I always associated Lavie with typical carry to work style bags, and it was interesting to see them bring neon colors to their collection . The bags are sturdy and if you have tendency to stuff your bags with almost anything n everything, then they have a few structured ones as well with roomy compartments .Though in my opinion they should consider adding some glowing/party clutches coz every women needs a sequined something for a glamorous night out in town. But guess its gonna be a while before they incorporate these under their umbrella. As for the footwear collection, nothing fancy, but if you are looking for a robust shoe,that should last you good,  Lavie would not fail you.

I bought these Lavie Nude pumps which I switched over with my boots , and then walked the whole mall for an Hour ! I think I can trust them for a lil more walking whenever next !!

Collection Avaialble at: Lavie Stores, Select Samsonite stores, Bagzone stores, Debenhams,Shoppers Stop, Lifestyle, Central and leading handbag retail chains across India.

Concert look| What To Wear To a Concert

Friday 6 December 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

If one would go today to a concert, and the singer would yell “Put your hands up high” you will see just the hands with phones with cameras, which record the concert. The hands are up even if the singer is not asking to raise them up. Everyone today is so obsessed with recording or taking pictures of every event. People want to externalize everything. Guess we forget at times that Photography is just a tool to make a product well know to the world !!
Talking about Photography there is a  famous saying which we would have heard a gazillion times “Use a picture. It’s worth a thousand words” and as a matter of fact its a simple truth about photographs. Sometimes a paper with an image on is more convincing than a story with reasons and arguments.
Big brands like Michael Kors just goes ahead and hires the best New York commercial photographer, to do their marketing and create some really fashionable promos, which eventually are seen  about everywhere. That's it !! It starts and ends with a picture. The photographs speak for the products. The thousand words, a picture can say, are sometimes the perfect words for everyone. Because every single person in the end would pick up what they like to see. If there is something we enjoy, we will go back again to it, but if we loathe it, we will simply not look at it or ignore it completely. Pictures do not scream, they do not bother you. Pictures are not noisy. There are just two possibilities - ignore it or admire it. The impression they leave, depends totally on the person who looks at them.
Nh7 weekender pulled out the madness in Delhi last weekend. And we made most of the moment by taking a lot of pictures... I mean these !! By the time we reached the venue , the battery died, and the excitement couldn't be conveyed more :(  Do they also say- That There is a Next time ???

Life goes by pretty fast, if you don't stop to look around once in a while, and have some fun, you could see it go quickly ! Likewise, what's the fun of taking pictures, when you don't have some fabulous clicks of awfulness ? And believe you me, when it comes looking awful , I am the queen of expressiveness , Probably have more of  my stupid outtakes pictures than of good ones, and then having the guts to put everything on record right here and sharing it publicly, when all you want to do is tend to be more subtle ?? Takes hell lotta courage for me at least !! But then every once in a while, I love putting my blog through a vent of fresh air, by sliding in a character and saying something like "psst-- wanna see something cool?

Its essential to know what looks good on you, but it becomes boring after a while to get into a style rut !! Part of the key to looking good is to find out your personal style, n then invest in pieces that help you highlight it .
Today I tweaked my personal style a bit and did something out of my comfort zone ! I brought the toughness and boldness of the military Camo print and married to the ever so Luxe n Diorish polkas and let the North meet South in an incredible harmony..(like a coconut)
 Added these heels to let out the femininity,n balanced the potion with My Manly Ray-Ban aviators ! The elements of Punk, with just my Spikeeey statement Earrings and these  metal studs on the bag,  took things to another grade, and i loved the end result , It perked some more confusion into being this Marco Polo kind of a girl which I always felt within who always looked for her pot of gold !! Whoomm -Guess I just unlocked a new level in fashion !!
Tip of the day - Don't shy away from mixing prints, Explore more and expect even more :)

Best Places to Shop Trendy Clothes in Delhi

Friday 22 November 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The way we shop now a days, has changed over a last few years !! Wanna Know what should be an ideal wardrobe like, well then read on !
A few days back, I got a readers mail, asking me, my shopping preferences- Bangkok vs street shopping vs brands etc..
I'll tell you the truth. Zara , Mango and all the high end brands have penetrated deep in India.The clothes are well tailored, extremely fitted  though I wouldn't call them value for money ! They are not exclusively for the affluent class, but within the reach of middle class too ! For some its a status symbol, and it seems like everyone else is itching to race and blow a wad of cash on looking like everyone else ! Well that's my problem. Why look alike, when you can look different ? I feel like I can see the same dress I bought some days ago about three times on the same week walking through my city.
One word- The only thing I have with these brands is that you can't be experimental ! You just can't forge yourself on it !! You don't own a dress, damn IT OWNS U !!!
I love high end shopping , but its just been over an year the excitement of sale and clearance has died down for me at least in India where Zara and Mango rules the fashion snobbery ! That's a reason I have been hitting stand alone designers(meher chand market/hauz khas) Flea markets, Exhibitions and sarojini nagar lately !! I love picking up the rarest of the designs  and mixing it what I already have and evolve in my own way.
I  have blessed serendipity in picking up this scooter print jacket recently from Sarojini !! Its structured, fits well and is perfect for light layering! I was so excited about my find that I picked up three different prints Can't wait to show you all !!! What's your take on fashion now days ? Thrift ? Brands ? recession ? Future ?

I hope I could do more justice to this print, but the sun was too strong :(
