Formal Indulgence!

As the autumn approaches and there’s chill in the atmosphere, my heart wanders off to days with wooly jumpers and hot chocolate. It’s mid week and tiredness has already taken over my spirit. Amidst all these lazying, I realise I am late for work and have meetings lined up.

I quickly jump out of my bed, barely take a shower and fish out these snuggly fitted dresses that are perfect for formal event. I feel sorted for next day as well.

For the first day, I chose my jeans dress. The fit hugs my curves well and makes me feel like the boss lady that I am. I ditched the heels for comfortable stone encrusted flats and wore simple pearl drop earrings. The look was completed with my favorite gold watch and a hint of red on my lips.

The orange and pink dress has been one of my favorite as it gives a fresh vibe and a structured look. For Team Lunch, I paired it with the statement pearl neckpiece and as the colours are too bright, I went for subtlety in footwear.

The two formalised dresses really worked well for someone like me who was too confused to take a decision and solved my mid-week dress woe.

Friendspiration!

We are overwhelmed with the kind of support our friends have extended to us and are truly honored to share this special bond with them. Couple of days back, we did a blog on travel style and our friends have been gracious enough to share their personal style with us. Each of their look is an extended part of their personality and speaks volume about them. We will start with our personal favorite fashionista, Priti. She works with Deloitte where she is known to inspire people with her astounding sense of style. She puts her trust into classics. During her recent trip to Dubai, she swayed the locals with her on point dressing. Next is the woman who is closest to our heart, our Desi girl, Salakha. She is a true tester, fixing bugs professionally and also in her friends life. Her sense of style is completely opposite to her nature. The quirky prints and accessories, often overshadow her demure nature. We would now like to introduce you to our star Baker, Charul. A foodie at heart, she has converted her passion into a business. A true believer of the adage “Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes” . Riddhi is the wild child. Sexy, outgoing and lover of finer things in life. She can convert your home into a heaven with her designing skills. She is frequently seen experimenting with her clothing. What do we say about Richa. She is simple, sweet yet a fierce career women. Travel is her life. She has an effortless sense of style that mirrors her personality well.

Festive vibes!

Ganpati Bappa Morya! Bappa brings lots of happiness, good luck and of course the best modaks! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not just people in Maharashtra but every one else too waits for this auspicious occasion. Some even say, that the season of festivals and celebrations have begun. You see we have Navratri, Dussehera, Diwali all lined up. It seems as if the festivals are just waiting for one to get over so that the other can commence. This year Ganesh Chaturthi begins on a Friday which means long weekend, pandal hopping, good food and yes dressing up to the level best. We thought of three simple and different ways to colour our long weekend that we would definitely love to share with our readers too.

Day 1: This has to be the toughest yet the most excitement filled day of all. Lord Ganesha arrives at our homes and pandals. Arti, Puja, Bhog and every ritual has to be done perfectly. With all these work to do, staying simple yet stylish is the best solution. We have a soft corner for the colour yellow but it is a very difficult colour to carry if not teamed up rightly. This lime green Lucknowi Kurta with yellow embroidery is not just pleasing to the eyes but also gives a very comfortable feel. To go well with the yellow motifs, we paired it with a pair of yellow leggings and simple jhumkas. A perfect look for Day 1. What else do we need? Yes, you are right. We need to now think for the upcoming days. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Day 2: We all love to flaunt our best dupattas. In the recent fashion times, the dupattas always do most of the work easy. Here the orangish red kurta and dupatta coordinate well enough and give a bright and radiant look to the eyes. The pair of straight white pants is the best partner to create a festive ensemble. Kolhapuri chappals, jutis or any such traditional flat footwear would complete the look for you. Yes flats are best when you have plans to roam around a lot and visit everyone during festivals. It just makes your feet feel lighter.

Day 3: Its Sunday and surely you have had enough of pandal hoppings and visiting your friends. Its time for some relaxation and looking the best. And like every girl, we too love our sarees. Draping them becomes difficult at times, but the feeling of donning one never fades our smile. This black and white saree has beautiful motifs on the pallu. Paired it with a velvet blouse, it does not look too bright to the eyes. Saree and no jewellery cannot be an option for us. The look is so elegant that too much jewellery would also ruin its simplicity. So we thought of pairing the saree with silver and pearl drop danglers and embellished bangles. It really worked the best!

We hope you agree with our thoughts. So without much delay, enjoy the celebrations and don’t forget to look the best. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shrug it!

An ardent globetrotter is always in the search of some really comfortable clothes. And when we say this we also mean that it has to be uber chic and Instagram worthy.

Upon seeing the black crop top, the first thing that struck is to pair it with plain white shorts. Of course you can go with a distressed one too. This somehow gave a contented feeling that we wanted. To give it a smarter finish, we accentuated the whole look with a long denim shrug. And that worked wonders. The embellishments were kept minimal as the polka dots were the attention seeker.

You could also alter the denim jacket with a different colour or fabric that matches well with your shorts and top. If you too want to try this look for a short trip with your friends, then shop the look below:

Brunched..

Aren’t Sunday brunches one of the best things in the world? Good times laced with amazing food and fashion. Women often find it difficult to choose a perfect brunch look. The most crucial thing to note here is to be comfortable and since it’s a day event, keep your make up light. As brunches tend to include walks, you need to shun your heels, no matter how sexy you feel in them, and opt for flats or wedges.

Here we have curated a fun flirty look for you that you can try for a brunch date with your girlies or your man.

We have paired a H&M dress here with feather earrings to create a glamorous yet fun day look. The look is completed with comfortable wedges.

‘Loom’inous..!

Incorporating handlooms in traditional wear has always been an easier task and much favourable too. Whenever we think of handlooms, we tend to buy a saree or a kurta. And why not, after all in India, we get to see a lot of varieties when it comes to handmade clothing. Ace fashion designers too promote this manually operated loom on every fashion platform.

In our daily wear we love to subsume various varieties of handlooms to get the comfort from the fabric. Everything that is hand made has a different feeling and everyone loves it. However, the question arises. Can we even incorporate such fabrics in our daily routine? Would we able to manage? Of course! Why not! Gone are the days when handmade clothing only justified to conventional outfits. Designers, stylists and fashionistas keep encouraging to wear woven fabric globally. Various e-commerce sites have also taken up separate sections.

In this particular look, the colourful checkered pattern top is from the one of the most liked e-commerce fashion portals, Tata Cliq. It is bright, comfortable and yes handmade, giving it a very โ€˜loomโ€™inous effect. While this could have been paired with black palazzo or ethnic skirt to give it a more traditional vibe, we thought keeping it basic and simple and went for plain white jeans. Wearing it with white jeans and heels renders more focus to the colourful top.

If you too are fond of this look, then give it a try!

White Jeans: Jealous Slim Women’s Jeans

It’s Cannes time.!

Like everyone else, we too are eagerly waiting to see the red carpet look of our favourite divas at Cannes Film Festival 2017. And like most of us, we too are gushing over the first looks by Deepika Padukone. She undoubtedly slays it every single time. Styled by the brilliant Elizabeth Saltzman, DP is doing full justice on the international arena.

However, our personal vote for the best stylist has always been for the effervescent Shaleena Nathani. We feel she has always proved to be the ex-factor for Deepikaโ€™s style statement. Be it styling her up in a simple tank top with ripped jeans for her travel diaries, or letting her don thigh high slit red carpet gowns; Shaleena has always ranked the top place in our hearts.
We were hoping to see such gorgeousness oozing out from DPโ€™s red carpet look this time at the glorious Cannes Film Festival 2017. And her first red carpet look has certainly been the best so far. Her makeup compliments her outfit like never before.

Stunner she is. We love you equally Elizabeth! ย :*
