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…

GET THE LOOK - Celebrity Style Steal

Image
I have been noticing too many influencers and YouTubers recreating their favorite celebrity beauty and fashion looks for less, because why spending a bomb when you can actually sport the similar style for a much smaller amount. While I don't follow what's trending very often but this theme seemed too interesting to be ignored and that's when I decided to jump into the 'Celebrity Style Steal' bandwagon. 

I chose to sport the looks (for less) of four of my favourite celebs, whom I feel are effortlessly stylish and are quite experimental when it comes to creating outfits. Two from our good ol' Bollywood and the other two from Hollywood. 

Sonam Kapoor



First up has to be my favourite of em' all and I am sure its not just me who is in awe of Sonam Kapoor's style. Be it her red carpet appearances or her airport fashion statement, I personally look forward to each one of them.  For this post I decided to steal one of her airport looks, where she was seen dressed up…

I Dressed Retro

Polka Dots have been in fashion for really really long, and the exciting part about this style is that it ain't going anywhere anytime soon. While now a lot more subtle form of garments with polka dots are available in the market, it was in the 70s when everything about this pattern was extra! 




I never added this pattern in my wardrobe because there was nothing that I found unique enough for me to style, until, when I was randomly strolling at a H&M store I spotted this blouse priced at INR 500. Calling it a 'steal' would be an understatement! The details such as the balloon sleeves, oversized tie-up bow & monochrome is what lured me to make an impulse purchase.


Sheer & extremely lightweight, this piece turned out to a great pick for Spring Summer.
When it came to styling, I was quite sure that I would want to create a retro look, because why not! I did not want it to lose its appeal by getting paired with the regular ol' jeans. I paired it up with a high-w…

Formal with a twist

Image
Experimenting with formals is a tad bit difficult specially if the organisation is pretty strict in terms of the dress code but if that's not the scenario in your case, then it's easy to create unique looks to avoid making it look monotonous. 
You all know how much I love sporting a white shirt , and how I ended up styling it in seven different ways last time. Well adding one more to the list with this outfit. 



While I styled this look for an event, one can easily wear this to work with a little changes here & there. 




I wore a white shirt with ruffle details, rolled up sleeves & inverted collar alongwith a berry hued high & low midi skirt. I decided to give a fusion vibe to the look by adding this dainty pearl neckpiece.


The footwear screamed statement courtesy them being holographic with 3D bow detail. For makeup, I chose the subtle combination of winged liner with n*de lips.

So while this styling may not be suitable for work, you can always exchange the mules with …

Inspired!

Image
How often do we get inspired by a celebrity or a fashion influencer while styling a look or picking an outfit? I am sure it must have happened with each one of us quite a number of times. But have you ever got inspired by nature or ambiance? The beauty of nature, the colors & every other minute details has so much to grasp & fall in love with. 


So when I visited Tosh, I decided to create a look keeping the transitioning hues of the sky (from blue to gray), snow-capped mountains, golden rays of the rising sun and the vivid houses & lanes of the village in mind. 
This look was basically an ode from me to the heavenliness of this place!



I picked a pristine white tee with a patch with bead details & paired it up with printed sharara pants. Layered over a summery acid wash denim trench and added a double buckle belt to accentuate the waist! 



Finally, added a color pop in the form of these earrings & kitten heels. I ensured that my personal style 'Indian fusion'
