Nerd Kid Alert (:

Hello Peeps!

Thank you for the amazing comments and appreciation. Believe you me, it gave me such a boost to write more creative content and share new looks with you guys that I came running back from work to sit on my laptop and update the blog! (:

Here’s a little something:

She’d always looked at the world from behind those thick glasses and the world never saw what lay beneath those beautiful eye lashes.

I’ve always been a bookworm. I’ve also always been a hopeless romantic. Thus, the nerd look and the Nicholas Spark kinda work well for me together. With this look, the intention was to go casual and at the same time be sporty, hence sneakers with florals! I absolutely LOVE layering. I feel its a safe game to play. A plain outfit can become all jazzed up with the correct amount of styling, and well, that’s why I am here! A 200 bucks dress (you read it right) just got a make-over with an over-sized menswear denim shirt straight from my brother’s wardrobe and a bright scarf! (:

Try this look on a casual coffee date and see your guy charmed by your innocence and cuteness? Okaybye.

What am I wearing?

  • Dress: Bandra
  • Shirt: Koovs menswear
  • Scarf: Aeropostale
  • Sneakers: Aeropostale
  • Bag: Guess
  • Earrings: The Bombay Store
  • Glasses: Bandra
  • Rings: Manish Arora for Amrapali

Until next time.

Much much love,

Hello lovelies!

Have you ever had the urge to try on something new and not been able to muster the courage to do it? Have you ever been in a situation where you really feel like wearing something but are unsure of how it’ll look on you? I have. As a kid, I remember numerous times I’d go shopping with my mother, buy tonnes of clothes and not wear half of them because I was not confident enough. I mean I knew that the clothes I’d bought were fashionable, but I was just too critical, and might I add, harsh on myself about how things looked on me. As obvious, thus, these shopping sprees would mostly end up being a waste. My mom would end up getting disheartened and upset eventually.

Today I am smirking as I write this blog entry because she’ll definitely be happy! I am doing something I was scared of doing. I have always wanted to wear a hat. Like it’s been a forever dream of mine!(Silly, I know!) And today, it’s fitting that I am fulfilling that dream as my first ever professionally done shoot (dances).

I am in absolute love with the high waist skirt trend. It highlights on the smallest part of my waist and creates the illusion of a cinched waistline. Also, knots are something I’d ask you guys to try your hands at! The idea here was to go boho and hence the layered bracelets and the chunky neck piece.

TIP: Try something new today. Take out the outfit you’d bought months back and never had the courage to wear. We all have that one piece of clothing we think is a risk. Take that risk. (:

Today I am wearing:

  • Top: Koovs
  • Skirt: Stalk Buy Love
  • Shoes: Catwalk
  • Hat: Forever21
  • Necklace: Globus
  • Watch: Fossil
  • Bag: Stalk Buy Love

Seven Trends To Watch Out For This Season!

Hi lovelies!

When you come to a fashion blog, aren’t you looking for the best tips on what is in trend? Well, keeping my promise, I wanted to devote the first post completely to fashion updates and trends. Fashion is not a walk down 5th Avenue only, but also in the numerous lanes of Benaras or Bombay. You don’t need to splurge to be fashionable. You need to be comfortable in your own skin to be fashionable. Being skinny or fat, short or tall, fair or dark has nothing to do with who you are and how you dress yourself. This blog is all about making you feel good about yourself, embracing yourself and loving yourself. And well, in the process, taking risks and exploring your creative self!

Winters are soon arriving and well, there will be a gradual change in how you style your looks. This is an effort to compile 7 must-haves this season.

So, what are the SEVEN trends you should watch out for?

1. Fringes    

Fringes have filled the New York Fashion Week Runway and well, they deserve their moment of glory! Although fringes in general can be a tricky trend to pull off, one can try teaming them up with a coat as an overlay.  From Mongol to Ralph Lauren Polo, designers seem to be in love with this trend. And well, so are we!

TIP: If you are not really sure of whether you’ll be able to carry them fringes, take it slow! Invest in a good fringy hand bag or a pair of fringe detailed footwear!

2. Co-ordinates

Coordinates are what we call effortless clothing. You can hardly go wrong with this trend. I mean the outfit is already pre-decided. You don’t have to go through the hassle of deciding and pairing things up. Personally, they are my favourites. They don’t require much effort and yet they look so chic. While the solid coordinates are a classic, you can go all out there with the printed ones as well!

TIP: Try keeping it minimal with the accessories?  You don’t want the attention to go away from the outfit.

3. Culottes

I see culottes as every girl’s best friend this season. With the treacherous unpredictable rains in Mumbai, women want to look classy and practical. Enter culottes. Your solution to looking classy yet ready for the worst!

TIP: Oh lord. Go crazy with styling these beauties. The innumerous ways in which these can be styled is amazing.

4. Bohemian Vibes

With the 70s hitting us on the face with its flared boot cuts and high-waisted skirts, bohemia seems to be in the air. From statement necklaces to colourful tribal accessories, bright prints to tan boots: Bohemian Vibes have hit the market and how!

TIP: India being so rich in textiles and culture has a very strong connect with Bohemia.Try the Rajasthani Mojris?

5. Marsala

Pantone colour of the year 2015, this colour has been on the lips, nails and clothes of too many celebrities. And well, why not! It’s a brilliant flattering colour. With winters fast arriving, you may want to opt for this dark and very “FALL” colour!

Tip: Teaming it with a mustard and tan is ❤

6. Ripped Denims

Denims are a classic trend that’ll never die (hopefully). While they remain to be in trend and control, there are changes that time demands. Hence: The ripped denim. The markets are flooded with these currently and well, you still can’t have enough of them!

TIP: Don’t go for the ripped holes if you aren’t comfortable at first. You can start with the shredded ones and see how it goes.

7. Sneakers

Fashion and comfort together is such a pleasure! The sneaker trend is one you should definitely invest in! Whether it’s the athletic sports shoes or the wedges, they add an oomph factor to any mundane outfit.

TIP: White sneakers should be a staple in your wardrobe this season. MUST-HAVE.

Until next time!
