After having a successful store cover of TOMMY HILFIGER, and receiving such a great response, I was so excited to go on and cover another amazing store for you. (Well I hope the coverage grows with time ^_^) So this time I got the opportunity to cover FRENCH CONNECTION store in Saket. The moment I was inside the store, I could feel the cooling effect of the color palette, the texture and the designs, specially crafted for hot Delhi Summers. First I checked out the MEN’S SECTION! They have a good color palette to offer when it comes to Polo Shirts. The texture was perfect for summer dress ups.  Well if you are a serious kind of a person, who stays in the office more than casual hang outs, then fret not.Because FCUK has a great formal “summer special” collection for you businessmen out there. You get variety of sleeves to choose from, along with some sober patterns especially for formal look. But if you have a date and want a semi formal look, they have great shirts + tees combination teamed with cool half pants. Ultra fashionable and comfortable are the words to describe this collection. You can experiment by adding belts, scarves and sunglasses. And when I focused on the WOMEN’S SECTION, I was just so happy to see the “TANGERINE FEVER” taking toll on FCUK as well. There were different types of tangerine tops, dresses and even blouses. There was a wide variety of formal, semi formal and casual collection to choose from.The best part being, the majority of the collection was in cool colors, with a very small percentage focusing on the warm colors.In casual tees I could find great variety of nautical patterns. There were variety of dresses in the collection as well. From Summer Cotton dresses, …

Well the WEDDING WEEK is on (although I really messed up the week) woops. But anyways, I wanted to bring up a post, where I will put my creative hat on, and provide you with 2 innovative ideas. Innovative ideas eh? Since wedding outfits are always the same. Kurtis, Lehengas or Sarees. And this mundane outfit ritual comes with a defined color code of pink, orange and red as well. I thought why not break this boring rule book, and spice up your outfits a little bit? I present to you 2 fusion outfits, which you can try on wearing this Wedding Season, and make those heads turn for sure. 😉 This look is comfortable, for a tiredsome wedding day, sexy, colorful and innovative 😀 Instead of the statement neckpiece you can even go for gold coins South Indian style belt worked up around your waist. I have paired gold nailpolish, as it will make your hands absolutely stand out.  Keep the outfit summer friendly, and you won;t be worrying about the air conditioner not working. 😉 Well if you still miss your traditional dress code and colors, I bring you the Saree + Peplum look. This look works pretty well if you want to keep it traditional yet innovative. You can drape the saree the way it is meant to be. Team the look with heavy Kundan or Uncut Diamond jewelry. When choosing the peplum, go for bright or neon colors, just like I used bright Fuchsia color, giving a neon effect.You can even add diamond or semi precious stone bangles for more bling. 😀 So girls, this is my innovative way of looking ultra-fashionable, trendy and unique this wedding season. If you want to make heads turn, try one of the looks P.s. Let me know which one will you prefer. …

Jasmine is so photogenic, I asked her to pose in every other photograph of mine. ^_^ For summer special, they have lots of check patterns in various color combinations.

A Grey Plain Blazer (color suggested by Anika) Angelina Jolie’s famous Raw Cut Emerald Earrings Classic Diane Von Furstanberg Nude Pumps My favorite Bottega Veneta Fuchsia Clutch I created custom made mint trousers with a darker waist region to make it stand out from the white shirt. So this is my way of SUITING UP!! What is yours? 😉 P.s. your comments are precious to me…do not fret to say what’s on your mind 😀

I gave a basic monochrome ensemble to my Kalapalette Facebook girls and asked them to suggest…HOW TO COMPLETE THIS BASIC OUTFIT!! While Amrita Balaji suggested to add Yellow Color to this outfit, Pallavi Pande suggested “WIGS” I had a deep thought about it and  VOILA We had a QUIRKY TWIST OF MONOCHROME ENSEMBLE!! Wanna know what all I chose? Yellow Bib Necklace by KATE SPADE This statement piece is alone good enough to hold up an neutral outfit.It brings contrast to an ensemble, and I thought why not use it to make the monochrome dress more SPRING PERFECT? 😀 Purple Wig This electric addition to more crazy style statement is something which will really make many heads turn. 😉 If you fear getting your hair colored, why not try one of these amazing wigs, to look fashionable, with something unique and a new hairstyle to try on 😉 Yellow Studs The key to wearing a statement piece is adding minimalism accessories or no accessories, so I have added a very basic stud earrings pair, to be a part of the look and not steal the limelight of the statement neck piece. 😀 Dark Blue Multifacet Ring by Lucas Jack London Totally loving this asymmetrical ring, quite artistic and elegant at the same time.Although to suit my outfit I changed the color of the glass from Blue to Purple. Jimmy Choo Yellow Wedges Well don’t need to say anything about the Jimmy Choo footwear, as they speak volumes about STYLE!! These wedges will help the long dress get some surface above floor,letting the person to walk freely!! Thought for a cause eh! Christian Louboutin Purple Suede Cube Wristlet Clutch If someone says FASHION HAS NO BOUNDARIES WHEN IT COMES TO CREATIVITY….I indeed agree!! This clutch is a bundle of joy and style statement in itself.This …

WEEK 1 : TANGERINE TANGO – “Custom made outFIT”

April 16, 2012
orange5.jpg

The name TANGERINE has been derived from an adjective meaning “Of or pertaining to, or native of Tangier, a seaport in Morocco, on the Strait of Gibraltar” and “a native of Tangier.” Zesty Tangerine as called in VOGUE …. This color surely is a head turner.This Summer Spring Collection has seen shades of Tangerine doing the rounds.This color not only makes a woman look ultra glamorous but also brings out the electric edge. Tangerine can dazzle up a monochrome or balance the 2nd current trend “NEONS” and still make a female shine high under the summer sun. So this week, I am dipping my fingers in color TANGERINE. This first post from the collection is my CUSTOM MADE OUTFIT SHOWCASING TANGERINE!! Since Peplum is HOT ITEM currently (will be in the coming series) I thought of giving an Orange Hue to it to bring out the vibrant plates. Second I teamed this OH-SO-VIBRANT Peplum skirt to a dark tone of Violet to balance the look, and highlight the skirt more. I added Kate Spade New York Statement Necklace to it, it is a wonderful necklace with pearls, yellow stones and gold chunky pieces.It goes really well on the Violet background. Since the Tangerine color is an electrifying color, I thought of pairing it up with the electrifying Alexander McQueen Geometric Pumps. The first time I saw the Temperly Golden Clutch I just fell in love with it.If you want to know visually the meaning of Glamorous….it is this clutch GLAMOROUS = TEMPERLY GOLDEN CLUTCH!! And not to forget the OH-SO-CUTE Risa’s Orange Octopus Cocktail Ring.Isn’t it just so cute? ^_^  So this is my TANGERINE OUTFIT. More coming this week on TANGERINE TANGO….. stay tuned 😉 P.s. Your comments and critical analysis are valuable to me.Do post what you have to say about this post. …
