Gleaming with delight on a hot sweaty day, from a land of molten lava, and air as warm as that smoked sizzler, let me tell you, I had to put up with lot to shoot this look. Partly its not everyday that I wear Red, and partly, I had to show off my new shoes, which were customised to every tiny detail for me to Careen around the streets owning my style like the whole city is my runway.
Also its not everyday that you come across brands like TALONS D'OR, and when you do, you pay attention. The whole intent of this look was to ooze of kitsch femininity, but the heat suddenly jolts you out of that catwalk stupor making you feel like a character from Xander Cage 2013 movie-Riddick ( trust me Delhi was sizzling at 46 degrees during May)
Thanks to the start-up boom, a lot of brands aim to make everything from your watch to your shoes perfectly personal and explore your own preferences in much detail, without leaving your house.
TALONS D'OR surpassed all the tests in delivering that great experience in how a shoe should tend to- Comfort with a tadka of style (tadka =seasoning ).
I picked beige as the insole colour. The weaved pattern was kept subtle and I chose the design from their look-book gallery. The red outer sole is very close to louboutin red, nicely finished too . The block heel ( 3 inches) is comfortable to walk in for an entire day of rendezvous, or in this case, location hopping for this shoot. However I only wish if they could give me 3.5 inch nicety on the heels too, but never mind.
I may be finicky about how a certain item fits in my closet. And then when brands tend to make the whole shopping experience special and meaningful, I throw open the whole closet door for them. I could say this for TALONS D'OR too.
I try to bring y'all into my world of great shopping, styling tips, of course easily accessible fashion,rather you can call me your very own conductor in this intimate sartorial relationship which we all share through this medium of my blog. I love telling my own story through pictures and a place where brands could also easily fit.
