Boyfriend Denims And Hat | Street Style India

Sunday 28 December 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I have a weakness for everything denim.  Yup that slouchy n worn in feeling of a perfect boyfriend jeans , we are all familiar with !! Come 2014, Enter Boyfriend denim jackets.This oversize n light layer, can be yours, and one does not need to hunt them down. Perhaps I would say that its the most easily integrated piece for androgynous fashion. Pieces like these can work with leggings, a bubble skirt, skinny jeans and even shorts. With an endless array of colors and patterns to choose from, finding the right layer for you shouldn't be too difficult.
Boyfriend Layers are my perfect Jam for winters. If anything ,the latest crop of those streetstylin celebrities have shown that if you can't combine textures , then better layer on ! 
I love to flaunt sports meet preppy styles, read harsh Balmain styles(swooning already on the latest teaser with them)  While winters give me a perfect hot-spot to bring on the my own personal visage on things that make up modern day androgynous women,the heel in my step, gives an effeminate edge, so that I could make it appealing to those who are not really up for it ! Go ahead give it a shot, even if it takes baby steps, and explore a new side in fashion :)

Trench Weather

Friday 19 December 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I was longing to share my look after the recent hair coloring session, while my hair was still at the blow dried best !! You can read about it here. It has given me a new boost of confidence, (always do btw) And when a super job is handled by the best in the industry, there is no room for dissatisfaction.
Today I just re-created an outfit, I wore recently to an event. Its pretty cold outside, and its just fair to re-invent no-brainer outfits, or the ones you had tried earlier. Right now, its a perfect trench weather, I love mine for its endearing style and raising the bar of femininity with my dresses. Black , blue n grey may be your winter staples, but I always find adding  a punch of color for a more impactful statement, or mixing color in wild ways, coz that way I find out what works the best for me. Too overpowering ?? Nahhh... Well, after all ,the only thing I might have to lose is my ennui.

Geetanjali Salon Delhi- My Hair Color Experience

Thursday 18 December 2014 / , , , , , , ,

Hair coloring is the new -"Makeup for Hair " and it cannot be overlooked coz self confidence is factoring into self-image lately. Need a boost of confidence ? Or wanna change the way people perceive about you ? Then better be the color chameleon !!
Its been two months since I got "High- Art "Red highlights from Geetanjali Salon. I loved the whole experience and my priceless look post that, which fetches me lot of compliments(till date ). Not to forget, it was first time I experimented with different colors. And with the tiny maintenance , I was able to retain the color for this long too.
The people at Geetanjali's knows my love for being wacky, hence called me over last week for a session with the industry's most consulted color expert- Sumit Israni, for hair color assessment, and add on some more color to my hair and persona .

Brand Spotlight : Gyans Is Now Online

Wednesday 17 December 2014 / , , , , ,

Gyans our very own brick-n -mortar boutique stocking the trendiest Ethnic finery, is now online !! I still remember this quaint li'l designer studio which always caught my fantasy, for their beautiful selection of clothes and accessories . A bit more throwback, and Gyans, is a name synonym to my hay day shopping destination. Heck I still posses a pencil skirt, from them bought twelve years back, only in the hope of slipping into it once again. But that's a dream !!

Review : Dettol Multi-use Wipes

Monday 15 December 2014 /

So Dettol Has come up with anti-bacterial , multi use wipes, and being a sanitize freak that I am, stuff like these always top in my bag more than any tampon or a lipstick.  Why ? As a mom of a dirt-loving-freaky kid, I know my wipes. I have them squirreled over my house,and it has recently become an addiction plus the fact that I can't imagine stuff without them. So yes, a sensitive topic, but if you are a mom u would have to agree with me- Coz kids will be kids and I don't know about you, but I always hand over a pack of wipes to my daughter to carry it to school, and clean her desk. See that's the obsession I am talking about. So pretty much an important topic for me to discuss around here.

Brand Spotlight : Femella.In

Tuesday 9 December 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today's Brand Spotlight is on They organized a bloggers preview of their A/W collection last month(delhi/ncr) and we had the privilege to check into the new stuff and feel what they had in store for us these winters. Capes have taken over the trend game,and we love showing them off don't we ? So the minute I spotted this tulip cape on their website, I was thinking these gnarly glasses, A 90's look, some teased hair, and a Ribbon headband. Although what's missing here is a scrunchie and I won't lie if I tell you that I had George Michael running in mind , but lets leave that for next time to set in. has a line of trendy outfits at unbeatable price. Their fleece collection is weather appropriate and the minute I ran my hands through the cloth, I felt that it was pretty apt for the winter chills we face in Delhi. The collection is not only updated, of course in vibrant flashes of earthy silhouettes, seen both in fleece and mesh fabrics in red, blue, and black palettes, but each item brings out a cool n dynamic athletic vibe at prices that won't put a hole in ur Purse.
Besides this look, I call this outerwear the Show piece of all the outfits coz(yeah not only it swings me back to 90s) but  there are an innumerable ways that this could be styled, plus with a new twist in the cut, and Hi-Lo detailing  I can't wait to show off what more I could do with their collection.
Among other exotic elements, I love the effect these velvet leggings are lending it out to make the outfit more tangy and saucy.So let me just warm up to more ideas of wearing this cape in many other ways, and bring these styles for you to embrace, till then, give a peek an tell me what you think ?

Plaid for Winters | Pench Travel Diaries

Monday 1 December 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Though right now, its a struggle to show off these bare legs in Delhi, thinking of the chilly season hovering ahead, its simply not possible. But you would laugh if I tell you that I was freezing my ass off last month exactly for this outfit shoot. These pics are from Pench National Park,(in case u are on insta u would know I was there ) 
It was raining when we landed, and the weather took a steep turn into being very very cold. I was only thinking of all those shorts which I had packed, coz that part of India is never that cold. To add to my woes, hubs disclosed that our safaris were booked for  5 A.M for 3 consecutive days, and suddenly shopping became the most prime agenda.
We loved our hotel- Village machaan Resort, which apparently had the best rooms (all glass) and a private Machaan(vantage Point/ Watch tower ) - offering a great view.
The roads leading to the jungle are actually not that great, and can give you a really spooky experience, but the safaris were well worth the risks. We spotted the tiger on our very first safari , and the other two days we almost followed the  leopard  paws, but missed the beast. The drivers and the guides inside the park are very well trained , and they make sure that we all have a great experience. The last day , I finally had a chance to take these shorts out and pose in from my room (if u can see in  between blur and portions). This also happened be  the only day I smothered on some lipstick like a jerk, coz my lips were too busy either complaining of the cold or involved in  tittering every second. 
Except the bag, shoes and shirt, I have shopped everything from the men section here. Its not unusual that you see me mixing prints these  days- Been there and done that , but it was some kind of different thrill to mix n match stuff from the HE- Man ? Like it ??



IndiaMart.Com, an emerging E-Commerce giant recently launched its Mega Brand Campaign  with Irrfan Khan, and I am sure you wouldn't have not missed this 'Kaam Yahin Banta hai' tag line in the commercials for anything in this world. I find him quite hilarious , and I am sure you would have too. 
It all started with a Facebook/twitter campaign, where the only thing revealed was that  a Bollywood actor is going to be the next face for India Mart, and the guessing up began from there.
There was a contest, which was a great initiative by the brand to involve people, on social media platforms and ask them to think of any "AARAM KI TUNE" which came to their mind, ofcource while rewarding each and every one of them by offering hourly prices.

Thus Blue The Wind - Feat. Miss Chase

Monday 24 November 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

So My lips are Blue and My hair is Red, and as you would scroll down these pics, there would be a lot of judging happening along !  So when You can't judge a book by its cover, its better that you stop. I mean heck, there's a lot of stuff besides the blue lips that you should be interested in knowing .
Like this new shopping destination Miss Chase, and my totally Rad and super cool frayed leggings.
So the people at Miss Chase were really kind to send me a few products to style and I picked up this very, Bowish feminine blouse which was really capable of lending these super natural powers to flaunt these Blue lips. So if there is any daring style or a thought , which always skips the practicality (god save us from the fear of judgemental eyes ), online shopping could really be a Savior . You never know when your inventive imaginings thread their way into an eye-popping and tactile styles appreciated by a sartorial eye.
I loved the style of the bows which meets the V neck slash down the spinal bone. Since I am practically known to do a lot of mismatching and fusing stuff, I did a beauty and the beast look in a single outfit meaning some Rad business from the frontal, and feminine bows to give a tinged notion,a mix suggesting nothing so much as an ultrahip, modern-day girl bond, and I wish I could explain how I made people's head turn to a 270 degree angle with a bemused look when I walked down on the streets !!
Besides this pretty blouse there is a pretty LBD waiting for the dress weather to start and make a blog appearance too .
So Miss Chase, is an online fashion brand retailing  trendy European designs,  for women and have a well curated section for all our fashion needs . The prices are pretty affordable , and the selection is vast. From Fashion dresses , to outerwear to formals, you may just find something to suit your style and budget. Their jewelry section is a must visit, if you are an accessory buff . Each and every piece is unique and trendy with some must vintage treasures too for staple wardrobe building . Do give it a glance , and I am sure you could design an entire outfit  for any kind of occasion with them.

A Weekend In My City (Delhi)

Sunday 23 November 2014 / , , , ,

There is a nip in the air, and the garden is full of birds of all descriptions; I can identify most of them too and its actually the right time for me to enjoy the city without being worried about all the sweat and the heat ! A major relief- I don't have to worry about my hair too.
I really feel, that our  capital city , is so diverse and rich in ancient heritage culture that its gonna take me a whole month if I start today to visit each and every place. And to be honest, I have been living here since forever , but haven't really been able to enjoy the heritage beauty which the city has to offer along with the  "MUST SEE"  places till date. Sometimes its so overwhelming to find out that I am actually missing out on lot of attractions , neighborhoods, dining options, and new hotels, that needs to be enjoyed to the fullest.
I always tell myself that the aim of working and multi-tasking  in this city is to spend more time out in the fresh air, and an ideal weekend prep and planning ! Any weekend where I do something new is good in my book. Add some food and wine in there too, and I would not complain :)
Usually On weekends , I end up watching a movie or grocery shopping, with a must have afternoon nap. In case I am not doing any of these things, you would mostly find me hanging around shopping from the local artisans, nature bazars and Haat.
So Besides the rule of- No calls or emails from work(obviously) What's my Ideal weekend In Delhi like ?  Wanna find out ? Let me break that out for you .
1. At least one weekend in a month, usually Saturdays are spent hanging around the Market places(dilli haat , etc) looking around to get really fun bargains from Indian traders for the unusual stuff(home, fashion , food etc, u know its all out there ) Possible stops are  made to check if any exhibitions are also happening in or around the area so that a quick peek could be made and all the fun stuff could be bought at really bargain prices.

2. Later after I am done hanging around ,even if I didn't shop that much(which hardly happens ) I always make it a point that I splurge on a big meal in a New restaurant , usually the iconic ones which I always wanted to try out. Considering the quirky interiors of  the recently opened Social offline at HKV or a Romantic lunch at , Raddison Blu Hotel, or Some street food tasting,totally depends on my mood.
3. Post Lunch , Its usually a long session of chit-chat with family and catching up on the stuff I missed during the week . I also prefer driving down to my secret hangout place ie-  Central park, I know its a bit shady with all the couples and their mushy mushy dates , But I just somehow love the energy and vibe of that place. I have been hanging around the area since I was a little girl, and  I would also love that my daughter grows up feeling the same thing about the place too. Post Novemeber its my ideal laze around joint on weekends so that I could grab a coffee from the Starbucks, dig my eyes into a new book and soak in the winter sun.

4. Evenings are reserved for late night shitty movies curled up in my couch , But a glass of wine usually make things a lot better BTW. I hate cooking on weekends so dinner is usually  from a take-away  box while I make sure no-ones complaining . After watching a few brain -drain movies(post wine) a good night sleep is all I look forward too which actually ends closer to noon, so a good mornings sleep might be a more apt description....

The perfect mix of shopping  in the morning, going out for lunch with family after midday, taking home some casual dinner and ending the evening in front of the TV with a  glass of wine is how my weekend be like.
Let me know your thoughts and I would love to know what ya'all do on weekends . So Comment !!
P.S: This post is my entry on( my ideal weekend ) for a  Blogger competition Organized by Carlson Hotels . Stay tuned for more updates and fingers crossed for winning it .

Evening Look for Winters

Saturday 15 November 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We know that these svelte and killer dresses still might not be warm enough to wear without a coat, and the only way to tweak the fall weather or winteriisshh chill is to add a layer- read- SATC Style and just Sprint into a party.
I am getting on and arming myself with lots of black and winter colors, like this dress from . Its sheer, plus has a nice cut with faux leather panels,in a Hourglass structure, and a perfect bring me out piece for this kind of Weather in Indian Calender. The mesh sleeves provides for a little coverage, and a perfect option to get that not- quite-bare-look. I love how adding all gold accents has easily gussied it up for an evening wear or a party look with an edgy aesthetic.
Foggy days are ahead,  and soon the winds would be whipping at an insufficiently-garbed leg, so that we could teeter in heels, and glam and chic may just be a little dis-proportionate. I know for a majority of us, the thinking would duly take its course  from what sequin to sport to how to not let our tucchus freeze off !
So girls, do yourself a favor and don't stow away your beautiful dresses, only for the light of  spring to bring them a glow. Add some sparkle, some glitter, socks if you don't mind(coz its the next wintery thing) and some skin to show off - all but with a bit  of oomph, n be the social butterfly you always wanted to be.
