Summer Dress Affair with VAJOR

April 17, 2017
Vajor Dress_1

Summer Street Style essentials consist of cool colour palettes, comfortable silhouettes and Bohemian or Kitschy styles! While I adore the latter, my vibes are always strong towards a Bohemian take on summer trends. Their is something about the Rastafarian trend that makes it worth styling up season after season. And that’s the reason why I have partnered with Vajor.com, yet again, to bring about a ‘Street style OOTD’ that speaks volumes about the Boho style with just the right electric zest of Afghani accessories and comfort of tennis shoes for the woman of free spirit. I did another version of Summer Street Style with Vajor.com recently, when I wore a white embroidered shirt from their latest catalogue at the Amazon India Fashion Week. That was the first time I wore something from Vajor.com and absolutely fell in love with the brand. Not only do they use finest of the fabrics and the trendiest of designs, the fit is so comfortable yet complimenting, that even plus size women can flaunt Vajor designs with elan! Speaking about the dress that I am wearing in this OOTD, it’s White & Grey Embroidered Dress that is apt for a comfortable day out. The fabric used is Printed Rayon Twill with Modal lining. For a finer fit, the dress comes with a back zipper and A-Line fit. What I really liked about the silhouette was the boat neck style that complimented my face and statement earrings well. The fit is great, silhouettes comfortable, structured to fit the needs, subtle embroidery with marble faux stone embellishments for added drama and a colour palette mix of white and grey that suits the otherwise hot weather of Northern India. The dress also comes with a Tie-up Braided waist belt which I didn’t use to celebrate the free-flowing yet structured …

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 …

Noir Mode Sleek – Benetton Style

What are you planning to wear for the New Year’s eve party? The same old LBD or that shimmer sequence pallazo-crop top number? It all seems fair but only if we are talking about the parties down southern India and the likes. Because Delhi winters are in no mood of gifting us any relief from the chills.  As the NY15 is right round the corner, it will be a task to mix-match prints, colors and silhouettes on such a short notice. Your safest bet? Dig in the old ways! A.k.a. monochrome style. Nope, not talking about the LDB. Let’s stretch it up till the ankles and call dibs on a matchy white crop jacket, shall we? One of the most comfy yet classy outfits that I wore during the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Summer Spring 2015 (and planning to wear for the New Year’s too) was a solid combination of black & white. Take a look!  Earrings – Zotiqq How I wore it for Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week?

Why so serious? Work Style with Benetton

December 20, 2014

We all literally dread our way up every morning to get ready and go to work. I mean, who doesn’t like staying in the pajamas all day long and curl up beneath the soft warm quilts? But for those who even prefer keeping their pajamas stylish (and in trend), they don’t compromise on the work-look even a percent.  Now that the winters are here, layering becomes a must-do for any occasion. Layering up for work? No, I don’t mean the usual over-sized knitwear comforted under an equally over-sized long coat and a muffler wrapped around the lengths of your neck. Yikes! Presenting to you a neat and classy look to stay stylish and stay warm this Autumn-Winter season. Jacket, Blouse, Jeans, Belt & Boots – United Colors of Benetton Currently I am obsessing over this mesh black jacket and have worn it from a meeting to the cocktail evening as well. Wore the same #OOTD for the finale of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week by Rohit Bal.

Print on Print Trend | United Colors of Benetton AW’14

December 1, 2014
ask1

Trends are like the major highlights of this fashion industry. With each season comes the trends. Some of them stay for a long time, while some dissolve within weeks. However, their are certain trends that tend to repeat; season after season. Take for instance, the Print on Print Trend. Source : Benetton.com Now a lot of fashion experts across the globe try to set some rules for this particular trend. But my personal opinion says that if it looks good overall, their ain’t no particular rule that needs to be followed. After all, it’s not mathematical mind-boggling question. Source : Benetton.com United Colors of Benetton has come up an array of prints for this Autumn Winter Season. For those who have been associated with United Colors of Benetton for long know, that their signature style is more on the basic lines with the emphasis on solid shades. Well, you’ll be surprised to learn about the prints – series that have launched this time. From the obvious floral prints to military prints, they have also taken over digital photograph prints and font-style prints for their Autumn Winter collection. Now before I show you how United Colors of Benetton AW’14 became my inspiration to try this print on, check out the basic rules tips on how to decode this fun fashion trend. TIPS TO DECODE PRINT-ON-PRINT TREND 1. Match the colors – Something that I have incorporated in my #LOTD too. While matching the prints can come out a bit too loud for most occasions, matching the color palette will tone down the double prints ; bringing the two style into one perfect match. 2. Break up the monotony with solids – Something that is a must for this trend. In order to bring in more definition, throw in a matching solid …

A Zotiqq Jewellery Experience

August 23, 2014
Untitled-1.jpg

Jewellery can either make or break your style. Accessorize it right and even a pair of basic denims and plain tank will upgrade to a runway-style #OOTD. I am a jewelry junkie. Why I call myself a junkie? Well, because everytime I step out for shopping, no matter what; I always end up adding more jewels to my already flooding jewelry collection. Not to forget all those times when my mom has scolded me for buying some more of the junk I already have. You see, clothes can be worn out, but jewelry stays forever. Don’t remember how many times I have been complimented for wearing a particular jewel rather than a particular apparel! Now that I have made my point, let me introduce you to one such hub of artificial jewels that range between vintage, classic to cocktail styles. Presenting to you Zotiqq.com – the venture by my dear friend and blogger Ritu Rajput of The Indian Beauty Blog. The first time she introduced me to her expansive jewellery collection, I was literally blingstruck! And when she asked me if I would like to feature some of the products on #Kalapalette, it was a straight away yes (tee hee) from me. Combination Rings Set Taking up the midi-rings trend that has been trending since a while now, I had to invest in a few combos from Zotiqq. They are gold, they are classy and they are frigging adjustable. One issue that I have faced earlier with rings is that they can’t be customised for your finger width. But Zotiqq offers that option. Shop it HERE The Disc Man Necklace The next on my list was this vintage coins necklace. I have seen plenty of such coins necklaces with various other labels, but somehow they just don’t fancy me much. But this one stood out from …

Closeup Diamond Attraction – {Mumbai Travel Diaries}

July 14, 2014

Brushing your teeth twice, weekly floss routines and what not. So much to keep our teeth healthy and munch strong (talk about a non-vegetarian foodie, eh!). Even after taking care of these basic routines, many of us still lack those shiny bright teeth that commercials usually show. I keep annoying my dentist friend to tell me a home remedie for those sparkle white teeth and all he has to say is ‘Visit a dentist!’. Not that I am afraid of visiting a dentist, but such appointments don’t buzz in so easily in our overloaded busy lives. Now it shouldn’t bother me much to have white teeth, but at times pulling up a smile with pale teeth does come in as a disappointment. Don’t forget the creepy close up shots. Yikes! Well, many ‘toothpastes’ have come (and gone) in the market that came to give you white teeth with regular usage. Closeup too has come up with a whitening toothpaste. But what’s so special about this toothpaste?  Well, it too gives you white teeth with regular usage instantly. Yep! You heard me right. Instant whitening toothpaste. So when I was invited to experience the first of it’s kind (In India) instant whitening toothpaste in Mumbai, I had to give in my weekend to live it all up. I along with my fellow bloggers Komal, Nitika, Ritu, Lisha, Bharti & Supriya were flown down to Mumbai for a weekend full of fun and smiles. The launch party was held at Bunglow 9, Bandra. Special Vodka shots were prepared, keeping in mind the color of the evening – Blue The toothpaste was launched in a much groovy and ‘electric’ way.. sans the hoo-la-hoo of boring speeches. To prove the authenticity of this product, the organizers had arranged testing tables for us to try …

Grey Fashion Company – Online Shopping

July 13, 2014

Bling is everywhere! One of the major parts of styling up is coordinating the right accessories with your ensemble. While India has a major source of bling all around, we the young generation thrive on stocking up artificial jewels and western silhouettes a lot. If you are like me and surf up Facebook for shopping as well, then you know how big a selling market this social network has become. From cocktail dresses, heels to Korean made blings and baubles; the entire wardrobe can be shopped while posting a comment or liking a photograph. Now the big deal is ‘Which one of them are genuine’. I have had encounters wherein I purchased something considering the image that the retailers showcase but the actual product has differed drastically when received. Bummer, right? But then there are a few who actually deliver what they had promised at the time of placing the order. One such budding retailer and fashion enthusiast on the social market is Riya Khandelwal. Based in Mumbai (She ships the products pan India), she has a keen eye on picking up just the right accessories for her collection, keeping in mind the requirements of the Indian shopaholics. I can personally vouch for that because when I showed her collection to my photographer, Arusha Sharma, she was keen on ordering a few products right away. Riya Khandelwal runs a label called Grey Fashion Company. Keen on knowing the lady behind this amazing fashion store, we managed to strike an interview with her. Check it out : Riya Khandelwal Tell us about yourself. What is your personal style? I am a 20 something passionate doer of creative things who happens to have an eye for fashion. I am a graduate in business management and currently looking forward to pursuing my post-graduation. …
