Autumn Layering with Indian Bandhani Print Maxi Dress

Friday 31 October 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hope You all had a great Halloween ? I just came back from a tiny escapade to Pench Tiger Reserve and it was one of the most  thrilling trips we had in such a long time.... More on that in future posts.
Its a known fact, that I have some admiration to mix Indian pieces with a bit of modernism. I don't know when this style sprung up, or what Inspired me at that moment. Safe to say, I like experimenting things , and the appreciation was the the only driving philosophy behind all this little brushstrokes styles, I have been trying out.
Sometimes , its the contrast of colors, that works the best, or maybe the prints, but their is something so substance fueled about Indian handicrafts that conjure the Inventive Imaginations into something that it takes an instant switch for me to turn up the level of fusion wear Incarnations on my blog.
For this outfit, I picked up the beautiful colored Bandhani Print Maxi dress from Bandhej, and tried on this embroidered jacket, and I was sold in a minute. The color complements so well, that I took a minute to warm up to the decision and brought them home. I can't wait to explore more hybrid patterns and fusion staples that I could bring forth with these prints, and display my freewheeling mix of Indian culture on a platter for Y'all !!

Diwali Outfit | Indian Festive Wear

Thursday 23 October 2014 / , , , , , , , , , ,

Happy Diwali :)
I wanted this post up today morning, but something or the other kept on clinging.Wore this outfit for a Diwali party and some fun with friends, and wanted to keep it less on Bling and high on Zing, and the colors of this skirt and choli, scream the true vibrancy of this festival. I have never worn rainbow colors in such a beautiful form, and when I was shopping for my karvachauth outfit, somehow my eyes were fixated on this piece, which has a timeless beauty of its own. The best part- it would never be out of trend ! I had worn this blouse earlier during fashion week , with pants, and I can just right now think of so many more ways these pieces could make my wardrobe staples tune in with each other.
I am leaving for a tiny vacation in few days, so let me Keep it short as of now, and run to do my Diwali pooja, before its too late. Hope you don't eat too much sweets , and even if you do, don't forget to sweat it out, coz it won't be fair to not slip into these beautiful dresses again :)

Indian Festive wear- Karvachauth OOTD

Thursday 16 October 2014 / , , , , , , , ,

Continuing my  state of allure from the last post, it would not be fair to associate the elitist and sheen an Indian wear could bring to one's personality .
Its that time of the year again, the nip, the whiff of festivities , weddings , and the dressing up fun has just only started. Each passing year, wedding wear and Indian wear era seems to be evolving and its just the beginning . We are bombarded with constant new ideas and everyone really wants to stand out on their special day  - Enter-Fashion Blogs. From Indian wear inspirations to local street styles to "What To Wear When " tag , we seem to show it all on the blog.
This year the Karvachauth fever gripped the city's biggest fashion event-WIFW ongoing at Pragati maidan. The organizers dedicated an area for the women observing the fast, and everything as per the rituals and norms were arranged . Even the designers ,enthusiastically, attended the rituals un- brokenly , and it seemed more fun to break the fast under the Fashion moonlight with an equal mix of limelight. The guys from the PR team  directed me to the karvachauth lounge, where we could all wait after the shows and have a Google hangout session and break our fasts in a more technologically driven manner.
This was my outfit from the day and I love the fact that the Sari is super light. Its the first time I am ever trying an orange and blue combo. The corset has beautiful Pearl detailing and the Pallu of the Sari meet up at the ends in the form of a triangle. This ready made piece from Study By Janak , was screaming "pick me up and wear it " and I had no second thoughts about it later. I am loving ready to wear Sari trends these days , and the store can spoil you for the choice. Their collection is clean and minimal and that's the way I like it, and would always return back every year to them to wear my festive blinghhh.
Like it ? Sound off in the comments. xoxo

Retro Meets Parisian Chic | Indian Street Style

Friday 10 October 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

An outfit with clean lines and a traditional feel with bits of modernism infused. There are some clothes which makes me feel like that. One need not be born in Paris to have a Parisian Style.
So I decided to deliver Parisian chic  by mixing things and pairing too obvious price tags with  street picked stuff. All one needs is a mix of timeless taste with individual creativity. Looking natural and having an allure of life is my idea of sartorial fashion Mash-ups .
I was listening to my cotton candy side when I planned on creating a Retro meets Parisian Chic look on the blog.  Pretty Pastel with mint green, some blush and the Lavender which came in a black box , well let's just say that I was Brave enough to do a head to toe Pastel look,but  why not, when You've had a closet full of baby blue and baby pink stuff from last season, how do you make it look new again ?   

Men Are From Mars Women Are From Venus

Thursday 2 October 2014 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

I discovered these couple tees in Bangkok. They had some lovely crack me ups for a couple, and I had a notorious look on my face there and then. Clearly, I knew I was driving hubs to do this and of course my little eye candy too.
Its usually the case in relationships too, and mine is no different, so why not morph into one and wear the same tees ,but in a little out of the box style and show a bit fashion focused affection ? Though the pics may not convey the affection that effectively, but what it conveys here is the story of every married couples ? Although it took me a lot of cajoling with him to wear this tee , as it is a public acceptance of  Men are always wrong and a bigger acceptance that wives are always right. In the event we got a sandwich of a confused daughter, who would eventually have to find her own answers.
So, If you see us wearing this outdoors then maybe we are feeling a bit high strung and also we don't mind giving a little fashion based Biased lovey dovey display of Opposites attract  coz we love it when that gives the world a chance to chuckle at us on this Double outfit dose.
So whether you are a loved up couple or a not so loved up ones,I don't even know whether this is a new wave of trend as yet , but what I know as in now is that giving a shot at some craziness is Right Now in Trend " coz after all "The couple who dress together stays together"
P.S: Feel free to caption the photos :)
