Designing something in white and creating a fashion story that I had envisioned during my college was a dream come true for me. I remember how challenging it was to run finding the right fabric, the details on the garment and understand the technicalities in creating something like this.  I mean hats off to the designers who make their collections ready in limited amount of time especially before the fashion weeks! Coming to the creation of this outfit, I decided to give the lehenga a 9 mt sweep which is quite heavy to carry but makes you feel like a princess when you twirl wearing it. To add to the beauty of the white hue, I paired the lehenga with a blouse in silver brocade and added tiny beads on the borders. I completed the look with a heavy crystal maang teeka and a white oversized finger ring.  Talking about this shoot, deciding on the location was not difficult as I was very sure of how I wanted this story to be like. The beauty of this place just added a divine aura to the look. This being my first project, it will always hold a special place in my heart for I took care of each and every detail in the designing of this lehenga with so much love and care. Hope you loved this story as much as I did.

      SOCK UP
  STYLE 101

As I flip through fashion magazines and look at winter fashion editorials, I come across some beautiful pictures that are making me grow fond of socks in different colors and sizes. It's interesting to see how well they can be styled with boots, high heeled shoes, moccasins, sneakers, stilettos or just about any type of shoes. I've already shopped a few pairs and still wanting to buy more. Hope I'll be able to feature them in my future posts. For now, I leave you with some of my favorite images. XX

Whoa!The first collaboration of the year with the brand I’ve always banked on for my everyday wear -Max Fashion India! When asked to review their collection, it took no time for me to pick these three tops as I fell in love with them at the first sight. The floral sweatshirt is so me! The blue dress I wore as a top is my favorite out of all for the bling it has. The tribal print is not something I’m a fan of; however, I wanted to try something new this time and to my surprise, it looked pretty and went well with the black skorts. The idea behind this shoot was to try all the three looks with the same pair of skorts and see how versatile they are. This time, I tried a new hair product- the BBlunt Spotlight Hair Polish Shine Spray that did a reasonable job on my hair in terms of providing hold and adding shine to my wavy hair. Worth a try! Feels great to start the New Year with new things. 2015! What do you have in store for me?

It’s that time of the year again when we girls love to indulge in some real crazy shopping to hastily grab the pieces that we've been eyeing for a long time before somebody else snatches it from us.  From shopping malls to online shopping portals, every store is running sales with amazing offers and discounts. However, it’s important that we invest in some key pieces that will last for years together and not on the ones we’re not sure of wearing just because they are on discount.  Talking about shopping portals, Sheinside.com is my favorite one stop shop that has everything a girl can ask for- blazers, dresses, tops, leggings, winter wear. So I've curated few of my favorite pieces from their store for all of you. Come shop along!
