Festive | Modern

Image
Whenever we talk about picking outfits for the festive season, the first style that comes into our mind is ethnic! While I feel one can experiment alot with their looks & it does not necessarily have to be completely ethnic, so I decided to do a three part series wherein I style different outfits that you can sport this festive season without being mainstream!


The first look as the title suggests is modern, wherein I picked a co-ord set to add a dash of sass to your festive look. One can easily pull this look off to the pre-diwali parties or at the time when you head out for festive gifting and more. 


Keeping the festive mood intact, I chose a vibrant pairing of wide legged pants & a crop top, in floral pattern. I decided to utilise the tie-up on the pants and tied it in a criss-cross manner from the back over the top.




Indian festivals are all about going a little extra with the jewellery! But for this being modern contemporary look I chose to go with statement footwear with pear…

Dress over Jeans

Image
I don't know about you but I, for a matter of fact, make sure to dress up keeping in mind the area I am visiting to! So when I decided to visit the Bada Imambara in Lucknow, I chose to go the fusion way by pairing a beautifully embroidered dress over a pair of dual shade denims.  Bada Imambara, like I mentioned before, is a mosque which obviously has religious sentiments attached to it. Respecting that it became a lot more important for me to to choose an outfit which doesn't offend others & do not make me awkward amidst the crowd! 
But instead of the good old traditional, I very thoughtfully created a contemporary attire.

Picked this stunning off-white dress for its intricate details & unconventional hemline and paired it up with mom jeans with colour-block pattern!
To add some statement to the look I side swept my hair & added this oversized, handmade Maharani earring just on one side. Err, do Nawab & Maharani get along? Finally, a pair a sneakers because the …

The prices of the products starts from 150 INR onwards across so many categories including beauty, stationery, gift items, digital accessories and more! 

So when I got to attend the launch, I couldn't resist myself from shopping my heart out, despite of it being insanely crowded. I managed to pick alot of cutesy, creative products at extremely reasonable prices and decided to do this haul post for you all to see how this store is a must visit when you head towards Ambience Mall next time. 
I got to shop 6 amazing products for not more that 1700 INR, and as a part of first day offer got a discount of 100 INR on my purchase. So basically, my haul costed me just 1600 INR, which I am sure is a steal for the kind of products that I chose.  Plus I also got 4 products from the brand in the media kit, about which I'll mention t…

Review | Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation

Image
I always believe that we all inherit a lot of things from our mothers be it beauty, nature or style. Similarly to that we also tend to fall for the brands they use, and this is how I have been passed down 'love & loyalty' towards Lakme! I have seen my mom using this brand since ages & how she refuses to replace it with any other, for its sheer affordability & quality.


While I have been stocking certain Lakme products dedicatedly in my vanity since the time I've started using makeup, when I got to know about their latest '9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation' launch, I knew I had to try these out too. 
Pricing: 600 INR each
Packaging: Beautifully packed, the rose gold compact comes with a mirror & a puff, where a separate bottom section with perfect ventilation is provided to place the puff, to keep bacteria at bay!
