Ajio Mini-Haul

Image
When I posted a picture off my Ajio box, quite a few of you (yes, I am not one of those who get alottt of DMs) messaged me about being interested to know what's inside. That's when I decided, how about a mini-haul post!
Sale season at Ajio is something that I always look forward to, not just for the unbelievable slash in prices but mainly for the kind of absolutely stunning fusion garments that they offer during this period. Being someone who swears by fusion looks it's a win-win situation for me.
Moving forward from the 'blacks', this haul was all about adding beautiful colors to my wardrobe. I managed to pick six garments for a total of INR 3067. Definitely a steal for me!
Printed Shift Dress - INR 390
Loved the combination of tropical print over an aqua base. The drop shoulder details & side slits (which can be buttoned up as well) made it a perfect pick for the summer season.
Floral Print Maxi Dress - INR 899

Available in three color options I chose this powder bl…

#MySareeMyStory

Image
Believe it or not, but August has been all about sarees for me, from talking about the revival of silk sarees to attending a couple of weddings wearing one! Also that now I am getting married I have been on a shopping spree to add more of these in my trousseau. So when I heard about Craftsvilla's #MySareeMyStory campaign and the whole idea behind it I knew I had to be a part of it.
I have always been very vocal about my love for sarees! And despite being extremely skinny nothing has ever deterred me from trying out different fabrics. While I chose a Kanjeevaram Silk saree for my last post, here I am seen wearing this beautiful fuchsia pink Patola Silk saree from Craftsvilla.

This fabric is thicker but I made sure I style it in a way that it compliments my body type. And to make this post is little different from the others I decided to change few elements here and there to create four looks out of one.



So for the first look, I decided to go simple, keeping saree as the 'interest&#…

Revival of Silk Sarees

Image
This blog post is really close to our hearts as a lot of efforts has been put into creating this, not that we don't do the same for our other looks but we planned this one extensively right from deciding on the sarees & location to shooting and editing a teaser ! 



Talking about the revival of silk sarees, well we both personally have immense love for this fabric but unfortunately, we don't see a lot of our peers sporting one. Not saying that it dying but maybe it doesn't fall into the 'fashionable' criteria of our fashion enthusiasts. Nevertheless, in my opinion, it's one of the most magnificent fabric and doesn't require much of accessorizing to lift up your look. I would any day prefer wearing this to a wedding over whatever trendy.



To create this look, I decided to wear a Kanjeevaram (also known as Kanchipuram) Silk Saree in purple-pink hue. It was extremely lightweight and easy to drape, considering how fine this type of silk saree is it also ended up…

Fusion Errday

It's kind of annoying that I announced this post weeks back and shot it almost a month back, and it took so much of time to finally put it into words! Too demotivated these days, is what I would suffice it into. But anyhow, better late than never.



I picked this dress while I was deciding on what to wear for my best friend's wedding and got to wear it on her mehndi, because like always I did not want to go mainstream with my look. While the kurta/ dress exhibited modernity, I decided to add ethnic elements to it.



This vivid orange piece with contrasting border caught my eyes for its style (loved the knotted straps detailing) and the humongous girth at an extremely affordable price! Instead of wearing it as a kurta I styled it like a dress and wore it with my tan brogues and added a dainty silver coin neckpiece to amplify the ethnic vibe. 
A sleek low bun with subtle makeup and a red bindi (complementing the print) to add a final touch to the look.


Why the caption? Well, I have been…

A day at Chaayos

Image
You all might be aware how big of a foodie I am, I never fail to try new cuisines, visit a newly opened restaurent/ cafe in my neighbourhood or even order latest additions in the menu of my favourite eating joint. 


So recently, when I got to know to about the new Monsoon menu at Chaayos, I couldn't resist myself from trying it out. We visited their M-Block, Connaught Place outlet (I am specifying on this because I am sure you'd love the interiors as much as I did) and ordered two out of their four new chaat additions: BhelpuriSamosa Matar Chaat
Being a sucker for Bhelpuri, I had huge expectations from this one and trust me they surpassed it because everything from flavour to presentation was perfect to the t! Sweet, tangy and spicy, a great amalgamation of 'em all. 

Coming to the Samosa Matar Chaat, though it being an ideal choice in this amazing weather, I personally preferred to gulp down Bhelpuri over this one, all by myself. This dish is basically, mashed samosas with spic…

Bylanes of Meherchand

Image
If you're from Delhi, you must be living under a rock if you haven't heard about Meherchand Market. Located near the colony famous for its vivid street art, this market is renowned for its hi-end designer stores. But what people haven't seen are the rusty, old bylanes of Meherchand Market. 



When we were planning this shoot, the biggest question in our heads was 'Where?', and that's when we came to a conclusion to do a recce around this area. Since all of us were wearing quite colorful outfits, these bylanes totally complimented and elevated our looks. Like I always say, location and ambience do play a vital role in presenting your style through images. 



I chose to wear a Kalamkari print flared kurta as a dress alongwith oversized chandbaalis and added these brown mules ad sleek vintage glasses for a fusion vibe. Not just our outfits boasted summer colors but the cotton fabric was a sigh relief in this humid weather, for us all. 

One of my most favorite addition to…
