Now that we all are tech-savy and the world of e-commerce has taken over, even the digital shopping giants have put in their best foot forward to jump in the sale offers.

As e-commerce is expanding at an unprecedented rate in India, all of us who are hooked to internet shopping are being gratified like never before. There are more websites, more variety and more fun! But I have to admit that this can also lead to a lot of confusion and mess when I have to hop from one site to another say in search of my dream dress. I tend to spend more time looking into the stock available on one shopping portal and then I venture into another.  The same drill continues until I get hold of something that not only satiates my style-sense but also fits me well!

Amazon India Must Have Ft. Festive Look

October 10, 2015
Amazon India Da Milano_Kalapalette1a

Ever since Amazon India has come into existence, online shopping experience has become a serious trend in the country. Country like India, where buying in bulk or buying in sale has always been a popular concept, is now well equipped with the modern amenities of a leisure lifestyle. Gone are the days when we used to step out in scorching sunlight, planning out days/months in advance, what we will wear for the festive celebrations. Now that the festivals are lined up closely in order (Starting this month), I had to give into the festive mood and feature something that every desi girl is currently doing – setting a look rack for the festivities. When Amazon India Fashion team decided to send across some love from their #MustHaveFashion category, I was instantly able to relate the colours and texture of the product to this celebratory season. Amazon India sent across a lovely structured Da Milano bag, which has been sophisticatedly textured on a pop of red tone to set the mood. The Ensemble Giving into the breezy autumn season, I picked up the kurti from a set of two that I purchased a couple of months back from Myntra. Breaking the monotony of the yellow printed kurti, I added a darker tone of palazzo pants that I thrifted from the locals of Delhi. The Print Festive season in India means embroidery and prints. Mostly, derived from the middle eastern influence, Paisley design is very famous in traditional Indian forms. One can opt for such detailed prints or keep it simple with gota patti or add dollops of embroidery to please the bling-struck festive feel. The Hand Bag Star of this outfit post is this Da Milano structured hand-bag. Like I had mentioned earlier too, I absolutely love the rich red colour of …

Zotiqq Subscription Box Review (August)

August 23, 2015

Lately, I have been investing in a lot of jewellery. Mostly eyeing on what’s on discount, I’ve been wandering on e-commerce webbies and surfing through the fashion streets of Delhi. For some this might seem like an easy-peasy, but collecting the right accessories that will please your personal style and will be up with the current trends is a cray task. Not to forget the array of baubles collection we review on a long panel and get confused as what to try and what to buy. Zotiqq doing everything *exotic* has ventured into easing out this dilemma for us. Not only are they pulling out best of their jewels to fit the monthly trends, but are also offering a subscription box which is loaded with jewels worth double the amount of what you are paying! Check out their entire range of subscription boxes, which have been designed to please the new-customers as well as their regular fans. – Zotiqq Subscription Box Link If you remember, I introduced Zotiqq on my blog with a few details about what kind of jewellery they offer. If you haven’t, go check it out HERE. This time around, I am featuring their ‘Fashionista Box’ which comes with a bonus voucher of Four Fountain Spa. Yay! Fell in love with these chandelier earrings the moment I unwrapped my subs box. These are not only apt to brighten up even a simple black dress, but their light weight makes it more wearable for longer hours. I am absolutely floored by the beauty of these and am loving wearing them for both regular parties and traditional gatherings. This necklace is a pure pastel bliss. The subtle hues of pink all over makes it the perfect party-mood statement piece. Wear it with a regular dress or tuck it in under your …

Pretty Please Me – Jewellery Organizer Review

August 18, 2015
Header

Pretty things please us all. As much as we girls love our dazzling baubles, the idea of staging them beautifully in and around our room excites us too. Although, most of the times, we end up wrapping them up in bubble wraps and closing them inside a box or two. If you talk about me, I actually have incidences of panicking over not having enough statement pieces to wear to some regular parties and absolutely forget about the treasure box that is lying under piles of other bauble managed cubicles in a corner. And not to forget the frustration of finding the long neck pieces wrapped up around each other with a ‘forever-together’ mission to let go. Argh! Well, many of us understand these mini troubles of keeping up with our jewellery collection, hence, a fashionable Delhiite has come up with an array of pretty jewellery managers, that not only make things right and place things strategically; but also look equally flattering resting in our rooms or powder-tables. Presenting to you ‘Pretty Please Me’ by Sakshi Monga. I have already been acquainted with Pretty Please Me’s range of organizers, since she has a pretty boutique in the busy shopping hub of Select Citywalk, Saket (Delhi). Although, it was just recently, that I got a haul-hold on two of their masterpieces. Lipstick Organizer Like the name suggests, this one is meant for the ladies who obsess over lip-stainers. Available in 2 other colours, the lipstick holder has been cleverly designed with elevated rows of lipstick stands, making it easier to pull out the one you like; without disturbing the rest of the lot. I also like how each one of the lipsticks get to stay in the spotlight, with no scope of clumsiness or unwanted line-up. Jewellery Hanger Thank god for this one! I …

Father’s Day 2015 : GANT Style

June 20, 2015
Vintage Dad

There is a certain way in which a father dresses up. Be it for work, or a casual brunch out with family over the weekend; there is certain flair to his modish sense that defines him from other men in our lives. We can’t help but be swoon away by his charm and adapt that certain sense in our personal style quotient too. But this post is all about our fathers, so let’s keep it focused on to that only. It’s not just his personal style, but the brands that he opts to propose it that sets in as a great example of style too. There are numerous brands that offer menswear or accessories, but there are selective few that take menswear onto a whole new level and introduce class and finesse to the wearer. GANT is one such luxury brand that defines menswear with class and sets the style apart from the general ensemble dictations. The brand not only offers formal suits and an array of shirts to choose from, it also offers a wide collection of semi-casual and casual spring summer wardrobe essentials for men. Breaking the monotonous association of men with shades of black, blue and browns; GANT also offers collection in various other colors like red, pink, green, pastels and yellow. When I thought about gifting my father some style additions to his extended wardrobe, I couldn’t think of a better brand than GANT to do the honors. Check out the ‘Father’s Day Gifting’ look I decoded from their latest SS’15 collection that I am ideating my dad to wear this father’s day. Now if you are already charmed by the collection and how stylish it can make any man look, take a look at their collection since I managed to click some photographs at their …

Royal Enfield : Riders on the Storm (OOTD)

June 9, 2015
Kalapalette_royalenfield_11

We girls are often pictured in pretty pink toned feminine silhouettes. So much so that the very idea of being edgy mostly falls appalled by the society. But in this world of being at the forefront, baring yourself to the rough wind and walking driving down the raw paths is what keeps us all going. Royal Enfield recently launched first of its kind gear & wear store at Khan Market, Delhi. Just like any other blogger launch event, I went to check out the collection. Wasn’t expecting to fall in love with the collection so much, that a mere conversation with their team member Radhika and an exceptional idea of doing a feature will prosper into this immensely victorious OOTD feature. Take a look! Psst.. the braids just happened to be by accident. I had roughly braided up to get frizzy hair at the time of the shoot, but everyone insisted that I keep the braids on as it brought out the more raw look to my attire. Well, rest is history.   Photographs Courtesy : Faizan Patel Photography Outfit Details T-Shirt, Jacket, Jeans, Gloves, Bag& Helmet – Royal Enfield Heels – Next UK Ring – Thrifted from Manali   The Despatch Rider inspired collection exemplifies Royal Enfield hallmarks: craftsmanship, durability & detail. Leather jackets are the defining pieces of this collection, complimented by other outer wear pieces. Cold weather layering gets a leg up with sweaters, sweatshirts and henleys. The additional outer wear items include over-shirts, t-shirts, denim trousers, water resistant canvas bags, belts, wallets and shoes in pure leather. Find them in Delhi No.31A, Khan Market, Delhi Twitter : https://twitter.com/RoyalEnfieldIn

Who says that fashion is always crucial and pretty painful to put together? Well, to clear out the blues, fashion can be comfortable yet modish at the same time too! Let’s think it from Sarah Jessica Parker’s point of view, shall we? The queen of style and stilettos might strut her way onto the streets of NYC in 6inch heels, but she too doesn’t mind getting comfy in these dancing bellies; once in a while. Being stylish and super comfortable (you can run in them too!), ballerinas have evolved with designer touches; every season down. Truth be told, one can ‘Look Dapper in Trendy Ballerinas’ too! As the perspiration for Summer Spring 2015 takes up its toll, one doesn’t want to get caught in a painful heels-affair, strapping it at place while running the daily errands and being the busy workaholic that we are. Be it a celebrity like SJP or our home girl MNC manager, flats over heels can never be ruled out as a stylish footwear option. Think it ain’t as stylish as the 6inch saga? Hear what the famous fashion consultant and mentor for Project Runway has to say about flats – “Flats can be fabulous too!” Now if you are still wondering whether to invest in another pair of heels for summer or pamper your feet with some comfort-shoes loving, soak in some inspiration from these desi Bollywood celebrities, who are marching up the ballerina trend with élan! Deepika Padukone  image source : glamcheck    Leopard Print Ballerinas: Take a bow for this young lady. Deepika surely knows how to ante up any trend flawlessly. If you love prints, then take inspiration from Ms. Leela and work up animal prints for a boho-style, floral because it’s summer time or keep it simple with geometric prints like polkas. Pair them with an all black jumper or any …

OOTD : Color Party Semi-Formal Look

April 17, 2015
Featured

While mix-matching your outfit in the right modish manner matters a lot, some add-on elements of  style equally put in the extra punch to bring an OOTD to life. Be it for a day to day wear or some selective date-meets, elements as basic as a bag need special attention. While somehow we still neglect these important accessories and then quite wonder what went wrong! Imagine your work wear consists of a mundane white blouse – denim jeans combo and you yet try to achieve some kind of style? How about we add on a flattering sling bag or laptop bag to go with it? Toss those boring black laptop sleeves and give it a quirky uplift. Of course, for a daily work wear routine we need to maintain a sense of sophistication and professionalism. In such scenarios, the likes of Holii brands come in handy (and vogue)! For a blogger’s profile, their ain’t no boundaries on a meeting dress-code, but surely we need to play by the professionalism rules; and yet maintain our ‘fashionable’ image in front of the world. Always juggling between a hand bag to a sling to a clutch, I am quite not able to commit on one bag to go with at the meetings. So this post is dedicated to that one style of bag, that’s all what we need, to keep it stylish and yet formal. Presenting to you, the Holii Laptop Bag. SUMMER TEMPTATIONS Climb the fashion ladder a little higher this summer with an exclusive style statement with the new Holii bags! Shake off the cold with Holii’s new summer collection, a range of bags crafted to match the glamour of your sunny days out in the city.
