PUMA El Rey Future – Review

May 31, 2013

BlogAdda.com gave me this amazing opportunity to own a pair of Puma El Rey shoes. I had always been into sports wear for two reasons, 1 being a basketball player AND 2nd, my foot size. When heels make a girl look sexy and feminine, a good pair of sports shoes makes a girl look hotter and smarter. Puma El Rey shoes are one of those uni-sexual creations that might just turn on your hip-hop side. When I wore them for the first time, I literally wanted to groove to a Jay Z track. The shoes : The best part about Puma El Rey shoes are that, they are very light weight, which makes it very comfortable for the wearer. Not only they are light, but the built it strong, which makes them wearable on a daily basis, all day all night. Since I received them in hot Delhi summers, I was wondering if I should wrap them up for winters, or try wearing them presently. Well I guess PUMA consists of Einsteins, because these shoes have perforated air circulation system, which let’s my feet breathe, even in this hot Delhi weather. Another added point to these Puma El Ray shoes is, that they are lace-less! You don’t need to worry about tying your laces all the time, which sucks for a person who is everyday on his/her heels, running errands and does not like dirtying the hands. The style : As far as the style is concerned, these shoes, apart from having a very sporty and stylish look, come in 3 types of color combinations. Grey-Black-White, Red-Black-White and Orange-Blue-White. I really wanted to lay my hands on the Orange-Blue-Whites, but was wondering if I will be able to wear them with maximum looks… so opted for the basic Red-Black-Blue color …

Recently I was introduced to the world of American Swan, India’s latest entry to premium global online fashion and lifestyle genre offering an exhaustive array of products that spans across categories such as apparel, footwear, accessories, beauty and home products. The brand combines classic, iconic American style with quintessential European fashion that is delivered to those who seek international standards beside up-to-the-minute fashion. Launched in January 2013, the brand  also retails other leading portals like Flipkart, Jabong, Pepperfry and Myntra. It has been getting overwhelming response from all quarters and has emerged as one the most inspirational yet affordable home grown brand in India. As a token of love, they sent across something from their SS’13 collection. What caught my eyes were the basic yet sophisticated apparels, which promote the western fashion culture in the right light. So, I thought of doing a little experiment on my sister, Anushri, and came up with this theme : The Nerd in Vogue Because now, *looking* nerd is also a la mode! The shirt is available here The bag is available here The look : A nerd is the one who does not worry about his/her hair, so a messy bun makes the overall look young and playful. Play with solid basic colors  team them up with simple heels, and a nude makeup to pump up the nerd look.. The shirt : Virginia V-Neck shirt is summer friendly, light cotton fabric, with a comfortable cut. The bag :  Newport Tote Bag is my personal favorite. I always carry huge bags to carry along my daily outing products, but the idea of a huge bag in SUMMERS is depressing. While this bag (I mostly use it without the sling) is super cool, crisp and does not become shapeless if stuffed, is easy to access and looks super stylish …

When you get invited to experience a fashion show organized by a fashion school, your gear automatically shifts to neutral. Well at least THAT is what I follow before attending any such fashion shows. The reason being, that some of them turn out to be fabulous, while some turn out to be disastrous  Not naming anyone here, but I had the same *neutral* thoughts for this one. Although it was being organized by French Fashion School called “Modart”, but I was still balancing the bewilderment. But to my surprise, THIS one turned out to be nothing less than a *professional statement*. From the venue, Florian – MGF Mall Saket, to the budding designers and the organizers, everything seemed like a well rehearsed and worked up composition.

Earth Day Celebrations with The Body Shop India

May 12, 2013

A couple of days back I was invited by The Body Shop, India, to celebrate Earth Day. Being an intensely dedicated team, they make their events very special and well defined. After experiencing an amazing Christmas Call with them last year, I was thrilled to witness some more pampering by The Body Shop India. The motive behind the meet was to spread a word about their generous campaign called “Wood Positive”. The best part about this campaign is that they have already contributed to the world’s resources by protecting and planting over 55,000 trees in the Ecuadorian Andes and the highly endangered Atlantic Rainforest. As I stepped inside their Select Citywalk, Saket store, I saw a lot of TBS lovers chit chatting, getting pampered and learning about the products. Personally, I loved the hand massage (with lot’s of knowledge about the products they used), the Olive Oil hamper pack (Drool worthy), the earth friendly decor and yummilicious snacks! Take a look at my experience through my photographs…. Press Release :  The Body Shop celebrated the first anniversary of the “Wood Positive” campaign on Earth Day. The campaign was officially launched in association with The World Land Trust on April 22, 2012, in a bid to help restore fragile habitats and regenerate land back to its true form, protecting the environment for the long-term.

Monochromatic Affair with Calvin Klein Jeans India

May 10, 2013

Fashion industry is one place where you make rules to be not to be followed. A while back winters were all about warm, mundane and dark shades of black/grey/mustard and so on; while summers on the other hand was all about matching the sunlight. Bright colors, pastels, icecream shades, floral patterns, loose silhouettes and so on. But now it seems as if the industry has had a flip side. Now *Winter 2012* for instance, was all about pastels, neons, bright colors, large pattern blocks, oversized cardigans and wool taking inspiration from summer trends. On the other hand, Summer/Spring 2013 has turned out to be a serious amalgamation of Black and White. While some high street brands are swearing by the but-obvious summer trends, Calvin Klein Jeans has another haute story to tell…. Apart from the overdose of Neons, CKJ has revived the evergreen trend of Blacks & Whites. Check out a wide variety of casuals to some serious suiting up range from Calvin Klein’s Summer/Spring Collection 2013. When in doubt, wear black (and white). This combination not only makes you look slim, but if you pick up the right print and  cut, you just might look taller, sexier and hotter.                    If layering, don’t forget to keep a balance between solids, prints, shimmers and matte. Calvin Klein Jeans has a lot to play around with. Let this experimental monochrome collection  B&W which defines your personality. Check out the mini video showcasing the MONOCHROME AFFAIR http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXcIlaRVw3U&feature=youtu.be&a I personally loved the collection as currently Neons and Ombre have taken the fashion industry by storm. This collection proved to be refreshing, reviving and ravishing! Check out the Calvin Klein Jeans Connection Facebook Website Store : Shop No 38, G F Select City Walk,  Plot No A-3, P-1b District …
