My take on #HMoschino

Image
As HMxMoschino collection launches worldwide today, I decided to pen down my views about the same and also share a glimpse of the fun we had that night. So I got a chance to attend the pre-launch VIP shopping premiere of the Moschino's collaboration with H&M a couple of days back at One Style Mile, Delhi.



While half of the collection was already sold out by the time I reached and I expect the same today at the stores, I managed to pick an oversized tee with embroidered logo, perfect for lounging and street style looks. I have already styled it in 10 different ways mentally.




If you can't afford a Moschino then I would definitely suggest you to shop this collab as you'll get to experience the true essence of Moschino as pocket-friendly prices. The collection exhibits a very 90s exciting & fierce vibe.
While I wanted to lay my hands on the statement earrings as well but alas I couldn't, due to unavailability. Also, this limited-edition range won’t be restocked when it…

Desi Diwali

Image
We put in a lot of thought and effort behind every outfit for any occasion. Every year on Diwali for me, it has been about going modern traditional with my look. But this year I decided to stick with the mainstream desi style and opted for a saree as my outfit, maybe because I have been shopping a lot of sarees these days (err.. wedding approaching). 




I am sure with so many Diwali outfits inspiration available on the internet right now one ought to get confused as to what to finally wear. So to keep it simple for you I picked a vivid saree from Unnati Silks. Unlike the traditional festive colours, I chose a turquoise Dabu print Rajasthani cotton saree and paired it with a white turtleneck blouse. I am someone who experiments a lot with drapes but since the idea was to keep it easy for the first time, I decided to opt for an open pallu (veil).



Went a bit bold with my makeup & used my turquoise eyeliner & literally colour blocked it with a pop of matte red on my lips.

Golden Hour | India Fashion Week SS19

Image
Finally got back to attending the Fashion Week after a hiatus of almost a year. A lot changed since then, with Lotus Make-up being the main sponsor this season the hashtag became #LMIFW SS19! But what did not change was our enthusiasm to dress our fashionably best & observe the leading fashion designers displaying their best on the ramp.
I decided to attend just the first day of the week this season because the line up included few my favourite designers like Péro, Huemn, Rimzim Dadu, to name a few. 



LMIFW SS19 was opened with Péro by designer Aneeth Arora, with the collection name 'Finding Péro', at an offsite location, The Park, New Delhi. It was inspired by the marine landscape with magnificently detailed headgears; the flowy outfits in soft hues with a dash of frills, ruffles and beaded fringed ends made it a show worth watching while sitting under the harsh sun. Also, the live music band made me want to groove along with the models, but alas.. we cannot do that!

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…
