Balance in Fusion | Fashion East Meets West

Thursday 28 April 2016 / , , , , , , , , , , ,

Sometimes I am envious of women dressed in Indian finery. If you know me well, I love getting a good dossier mix which the bloggers(including me ) have smartly coined as fusion .So what exactly is this fusion we are talking about ? For all I get right now, and where the sartorial pages of fashion take me , I  think it's a progressive or rather smart interpretation of east meets west  or a path less ordinary . No we are not talking about the silk route but a right balance of  standard strata of Indian accents . 
There is this cultish contemporary affiliation or status quo when it comes to Indian fashion.
There is a new world where we want to show that we have switched codes enough ,to wear a dhoti with a knotted shirt, saree with jeans, or blouse over a dress etc... and infuse elements in a fin-de-siecle way .
But you know what ? We are not the only ones embracing this trend . Beyonce in Coldplay video, and coachella which happened earlier this month are proof enough that now Indian fusion is not the path less ordinary. It's a pleasing break from the rigid adherence and is fundamentally altering the way we decode the customary form of dressing.
So here I am , wearing a slit skirt, with a long shirt dress both from StalkBuyLove, a dupatta to indulge with the mathapatti, and bangles bought from Bapubazaar Jaipur, and give you suffusion of my character in a form that you would clearly see more in times to come posts to come.
P.S- I wore this outfit to my friend's Chura ceremony.

Indian Fashion Blog | Fusion Ethnic Outfit | Street Style Delhi

Thursday 21 April 2016 / , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Street  !!! The character of any city is expressed through its Streets .They tell a tale . Every street has a name, while the numbered streets gets you going where you want, it's the name of the street, that must be paid attention to..hidden in it is the history,ethnicity,culture,food habits and even the entire mood of the city,
Street Style - What's the first thing that comes to your mind ?
Sidewalks, Food, hawkers, people on the roads, motivation of the people , noise , bustle, shopkeepers, tarot readers, Astrologers(Panditji), Banglewala , haphazardly assembled group of tables at the chaiwala, the girl in rag clothes , the homeless, graffiti on the walls .....accidentally or not, there is a lot of visual effects these streets lend to our subconscious.
While, our sophisticated avatar shops in air conditioned malls,but our inner child is always drawn to this cacophony of cluttered shops . One gives you ease of shopping , and the other offers a personal humane touch and luxury of rummaging through hundreds of things without the obligation of buying. In a local street, I guess, I am able to spend some time with my own self where my inner confusion is able to sync with the clutter of the street just like a river meeting the ocean. 
Sometimes its good to be candid and leave the beaten track.
In between all the madness,  strolling in an outfit fit for a wedding, definitely catches the eye. Well that was not the purpose of my post. We took our love for the street to the next level, and thought about bringing a change of how we perceive dressing up in our everyday life. I think this outfit made everything symbolic. Change was quite literally in the air.
We tried to capture various characters  in this post. I was welcomed by the churiwala to get inside the shop, and take pictures. He moved the little halogen dangling from the top , obstructing the camera. Men were at work. The panditji thought that he is going to be the next sensation , and posed for the shutterbug as if he would be the face of front page of the newspaper. Palmistry was rendered free of cost.Chai was ordered. Slippers and bags were taken care of. The entire Indian hospitality was rolled over. We captured many expressions and faces of Panditji , but then I realized he would need a post of his own.
The gift shop was small, but the owner was warm. he offered me tea, and invited his whole family from his home to come and have a look at the" MEMSAHIB"
Soon his kids gathered around me but were soon outnumbered by all the beggars in the vicinity, who expected a huge tip.
If you love shopping but hate the streets , then I have a new website to tell you about that would make your browsing horses gallop. This outfit , ordered from was a made to fit piece. 
From varied section of Indian pieces , to fusion wear, to multi designers, this one would definitely awaken the shopaholic in you . 
From the fabric to the stitching everything is meticulously done.
A bit skeptical in the beginning I was not sure about the level of fit, and the fabric, since the price points are not very high, I was amazed at the extraordinary service and diligent delivery which was 2X times faster than my nearby masterjee .The colour was pure love, the embroidery is neat, and the style is different. The hint of Marsala with the spice of burgundy is what makes this get its own edge, from the league. The possibility to style this suit is endless. On one day I want to wear the jacket as it is, and on the other switch the Anarkali with something more slaying . A hoarder of everything versatile , I really doubt that any brick and mortar store would have lend me their sartorial talent, into creating something as flexible as this Anarkali. 
What do you say ? 

Savings made easy with

Wednesday 20 April 2016 / ,

Like so many great things in life, saving money is the new flavour. Money saved is money earned right ?
One day while browsing through various websites, I came across a pair of shoes that I loved, but the price was not in the comfort zone. I realized that the same brand and style was also available on other e-comm site. To make my search narrow and easy, I googled the name of the product, and landed on  - India's one of the top coupons website  !!

There is a lot of pressure to look our best during fashion week. When you are amongst a vibe of the trendiest crowd of the city, you soak in . Yet somewhere between high glamour, bloggers are the ones who render some amazing street style. Its true. The bloggerati is the new race for static fashion . These chicks are not only visible, but visibly beautiful in extreme winsomeness moments.
Amongst everybody's endeavour to look top notch, there is  a little bit of me ( not trying too hard) but love to play a different character on each of the days and bringing a chunk of change altogether with what I regularly do on the blog. And clearly, I love to add my own punch to everything
Fashion week infuses that bolt of extra energy, and there I go probably mining my closet to find my seasoned companions in clothes, accessory and bags. Yes there is no rest for the fashionable weary.
On one of my mining days, I undercovered this fringe skirt, which I had never worn .Chords struck, and there was a speech bubble which popped in my head, when I was just halfway with a Jackie chan movie on the television. Yin and Yan I shouted.  Clearly I found my balance in this white and tan ensemble, and by happenstance or not there I was with a random test tube outfit which reminded me of summers.
There is something about that muted Ivory colour and a mix of  soil tan. The freshness and the energy derived from the fusion of these two shades is high volt but still in the sophisticated bracket and fit for my fashion week entry. 
Everything is over as we exchange this post. The pics are not even from this season, but its summers. and the wistful mood still lingers. So why not I give cadre of my new fans a crack on something that can be cycled on easily these summers ??

A Day in my Life with Asus ZenPad 7.0

Tuesday 12 April 2016 / , , , ,

The best Wi-Fi music systems for 2016

Those of us who love to travel light,and want to document each and every thing that happens around us, from food that is served on the table, to the fashion on street understand the need of small, pocket friendly (in literal sense ) and capable technology.
It's been over a month that I am using Asus Zenpad 7.0. It just lets me do everything I need to do to keep my blogging journey smooth and happening. I have been blogging on the move,  diving in and out of my blog posts , conveniently drafting posts without having to drag big and chunky laptop chargers.
 My Einstein blogging ideas(usually born in the loo) are instantly gratified on the Super Note app and I never miss any opportunity to redeem my talent only because I am jotting down everything on the Zenpad.

The simple, sleek and clean design adds sophistication, and is a winner for me especially when first impressions matter the most. 
The Cover glass is made of one piece corning gorilla glass (which is also totally shatter proof) acts as mirror like cover when the tab is not awake which I feel is a bonus for every fashionista because we all love our last minute lipstick touches don't we  ?
Home Audio Systems & Surround Sound

The audio cover of Asus Zen Pad fulfils my need for a compact music system which is just good enough or rather loud enough for my room to stream youtube videos . The 5.1 channel surround sound delivers optimum sound effects with 6 speakers lending upto 6 times the sound as compared to other tabs.

I don't sleep with any gadgets in my bedroom, but my day starts with grabbing my cup of tea and checking for any social media updates on the Asus ZenPad or if there are mails that need to be replied. I rather respond to everything first thing in the morning ,rather when I am less awake (I love my tab when the battery bar is 100 %) .
Slowly as the day progress, there is so much more to be done ,and there is hardly any time left for relaxed browsing .

I have a secret indulgence. And you may charge me guilty of watching youtube tutorials every now and then. From how to wash my face to how to straighten the hair, I watch it all on the Asus Zenpad.
Blame it on the cinematic sound output from the audio cover. Besides that every fashionable brain smart women needs a hands free device to try out different hairdos while streaming a live video and in front of a mirror that is. The audio cover which doubles up as a stand, is so convenient for me to perform instant styling hacks.
Asus blue light feature reduces eye fatigue and lends a very comfortable viewing experience while minimizing the blue light emissions without affecting other colours.
The ZenPad has a 178 degree angle viewing experience with a 7-8 inch screen display which is 10x times better than any other bulky tab or  even a smartphone.
