In Quest Of

Image
In quest of? In quest of reality in this made up digital world. In quest of quality amidst the high numbers!  We often come across memes & videos talking about social media vs reality, where we are shown how people twist & lie about their lives for mere likes & appreciation from their digital fam! Are we living a digital lie? Well, may be not completely but there must have been certain posts that you may have come across only to feel and question 'is it for real?' If I compare my life before & after being a digital influencer, I actually notice alot of difference from a point where, I used to enjoy my food without clicking a single picture to days where I used to dress my best and not get upset over not having shot that outfit. Not that I don't love what I do now but those carefree days are surely missed sometimes!
One thing that I always stuck on to is to never pretend to be someone who I am not in real life, create genuine, substantial content, wear outfits no…

Amazon India Fashion Week AW17: Day 4

Image
Keeping the unbearable Delhi summers in mind, I decided to pick this extremely roomy, handwoven Cotton dress for the last day of the fashion week! Like I said before, I wanted to stick with minimal yet trendy looks this season of Amazon India Fashion Week, this attire too, perfectly fit the bill. While 'anti-fit' has been trending for quite sometime, but I am sure each one of us has sported this style way before it became a trend, per se.  While earlier it was a mode to get into relaxed & comfortable clothes, it has now become a style statement! Some may say, this silhouette is not meant for skinny people but you've know the drill as to how to sport it like a boss and not end up looking as if you are wearing a sack. The patterns & colors you choose should be ideal for your body type.
Coming to the outfit, I chose this easy checkered piece with hues of maroon, navy blue & mustard, and paired it alongwith combat boots to add an edge to the attire! Being an absolute…

Amazon India Fashion Week AW17: Day 3

Image
After power-dressing on Day 1 and picking up the embroidered trend for Day 2, I decided to go towards the velvet way on Day 3! This outfit, without any intention also gave those Coachella vibes with a missing headgear, ofcourse.  I decided to pair a knotted bodysuit with high-waist denim shorts and layered a peach hued velvet kimono over it. While we all know velvet to be a winter fabric, but with seasonless nature of fashion these days this versatile material can be incorporated to your summer wardrobe with a little cheat; like I did here, by picking an oversized, airy piece to keep me comfortable yet stylish! Added a chunky silver neckpiece & a mirrored phone cover for them fusion vibes. I also did a little DIY on my bag by putting NAMASLAY on it, to clearly state that 'the slayin me recognises the slay in you!' Finally wavy hair, a pair of sneakers & the sunglasses before heading out. OUTFIT DETAILS Bodysuit - H&M | Shorts - Levis | Kimono, Neckpiece - Thrifted

Amazon India Fashion Week AW17: Day 2

Image
After an amazing Day 1, I was immensely excited for Day 2 since the designers line up for the day, pretty much had my favourites!
For this day, I decided to pick the embroidered trend wherein I paired an oversized shirt (with embroidery detailing) alongwith a lace skirt. The catch here is that I layered the skirt beneath the shirt (somewhere on the lines of what I did with my slip dress - HERE) which gave it an illusion of being a shirt dress with lace around the hem!  Added gold details to this monotone look with a sling and floral flat mules! I did a minor DIY trick with the sling by pasting an elephant patch on it and tadaa.. I had a revamped version!  Kept it minimal with no jewellery, per se! For hair I did a sleek low ponytail, with pink hue on the lips. OUTFIT DETAILS
Shirt, Footwear - Thrifted | Skirt - Forever 21

Amazon India Fashion Week AW17: Day 1

Image
Finally, beginning with the most delayed series of my Amazon India Fashion Week outfits! While last time I decided to stick to the 'India Modern' theme, this time I had made my mind to sport looks that are an amalgamation of trends that have rocked in recent past while keeping it minimal & elegant! 
At fashion weeks, we get to see alot of influencers going out of the way to create looks that are nowhere near to their personal style, for reasons best known to them! But the outfits that I wore are something that you'd definitely see me wearing otherwise as well. I had created a look with an oversized pantsuit for AIFWAW17 in my head but after literally going crazy looking out for it, all I got was disappointment because there were hardly any brands offering the same! That is when my really close friend Charuta came to rescue & I borrowed this piece from her. Yes, you can wear borrowed stuff to fashion week! Remember? There are no rules to fashion!
I paired this metallic…

Heritage

Image
I believe a lot amongst us must be thoroughly updated about the latest international trends be it the corset belt, metallic skirt or patch work denim, but when it comes to terms like Kalamkari, Patola and more, many of us are left perplexed!
I nowhere mean to enforce that one has know about Indian handicrafts, it, obviously, is an individual's choice but according to me the beauty that these products exhibit cannot be surpassed by anything around the world! 
I, myself, was not always inclined towards ethnic wear let alone having knowledge about crafts of India, but with passing years watching my mother draping her ethereal Bandhni saree or hunting an ideal block print kurta at emporiums made me fall in love with it. I have made sure that my wardrobe is a balanced with best of both international & Indian outfits.  Coming to this look, I picked this gorgeous cotton Angrakha anarkali suit paired with pure Chanderi dupatta with block-print detailing on it as well as on the pants. The…

One Slip Dress, Six Ways [PART 3]

Image
For the last part, I decided to create looks using statement pieces to either lift up the slip dress or to complete revamp the way it is generally perceived to be! A statement piece not only exhibits your sense of style, but it also takes the look from plain to noteworthy.

For this look, I picked this heavenly beautiful hand-painted Denim jacket & layered it over the slip. Added a pair of combat boots & a cap to give a sporty meets grunge kind of vibe to the attire. This look has a certain edginess to it which defies the notion of a slip dress being just glamorous & fancy! While the denim jacket dressed it down, the hand-painted part made the attire stand out from the crowd. OUTFIT DETAILS Jacket - Adagio | Boots - Forever 21
Here I put together my love for dresses & pants & made the slip dress end up looking like a tunic by pairing it with this floral piece. To give the dress a halter kind of appearance, I pinned the straps at the back.  If your slip dress is textured or…
