Hey everyone!
Hope you all have entered in the new Giveaway up at my blog, sponsored by Peppercloset.com. If you haven't- Enter now by clicking HERE. There would be more surprises lined up for all my lovely followers ;)

On the other note I am just back from Jaipur, spending a fun weekend there.
I had attended the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour, 2012 which was organized in Gurgaon last week.
I totally loved this event for one main reason- Instead of a plain, usual straight ramp walk- the organizers had divided the stage into a maze of squares which made the catwalk interesting and enjoyable!

 Here are the updates on my favorite designs and all the glamour which happened at the event.

OOTD - Smart n Chic Casuals !

Hola chicas!
Hope you all are doing good.. Its Friday and I have some exciting plans for this weekend which also includes the Indiblogger Meet this Sunday. I hope it would be as exciting as the last time.

My last post was on the store visit to Crabtree & Evelyn, DLF  Place, Saket! And I had promised that I would share the outfit I wore that day soon. 
I had to rush to the event directly from work, so I couldn't wear anything flashy or blingy. The dress code at my office is quite relaxed, we are allowed to wear Smart Casuals or semi-formals, but most of the people at my office also turn up in pure casuals. 
If you are bored of wearing Indian ethnic wear or western formals to office daily, you can jazz up your look by trying Smart Casuals if your office allows. Here are a few tips if you wish to wear smart casuals to work -
  • Rather than plain, light colored shirts you can experiment by wearing blouses, stylish knit tops, a nice sweater set, or classic sleeveless tops with a cardigan or jacket.
  • You can play with stylish color-blocking as well, and can wear printed shirts or blouses with pleated trousers or cropped pants.
  • You can also wear smart knee length dresses, skirts and even palazzo pants to make a unique style statement. ;)
  • A pair of Palazzo pants with a tucked in pussy bow blouse, heels and satchel bag would definitely make you look good and you can even head to a bar with friends later in the same outfit.
I decided to wear my checks print formal trousers with a black camisole and wore a cut-out sleeves top as a crop-top to give the outfit a chic look. To give the outfit a more glam look- I added the lovely aztec print necklace from Forever 21. 
Top - Thrifted
Camisole - Vero Moda

The visit was surely a treat as I fell in love with their absolutely adorably packaged products and lovely ambiance of the store.
The first thing which had attracted me towards the store was the small hut like display kept near the entrance, displaying some of their products.

Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week SS'13 - Day 2 - am:pm - Dev R Nil - Kavita Bhartia

Hey everyone!
I am back with the updates on the Day 2 shows I attended at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week being held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
Though I wanted to share them yesterday, but internet wasn't working well at my side.

I had attended shows by am:pm Ankur and Priyanka Modi, Dev R Nil and Kavita Bhartia on the second day of the most prestigious Fashion Week of India.
Here are my favorites from their collections -

am:pm by Ankur and Priyanka Modi :
Feminine, classy and comfort- reflected perfectly in their monochrome creations. Graceful drapes and elegantly tailored fabrics made their creations stand out. The wide-legged trousers were my absolute favorite from the collection.

And I am back with amazing updates from the Day 1 of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, SS'13.

Sekhose's show was a presentation by the Ministry of Textiles, to showcase an eclectic line that captures the flavor of the North east, its vast wealth of textiles and intricate designs but with a modern twist.

I absolutely loved the prints which reflected the Naga culture and classic silhouettes with a touch of sophistication and elegance. The dresses, pants, skirts featured in the collection were elegant and the quirky prints would surely make one grab all the attention.

OOTD : Thrifted VS Brands !

Hey everyone!
I hope you all had a great weekend! I visited Crabtree & Evelyn's DLF Saket store yesterday with Apurva from Kalapalette and had a great time!
Would share my outfit and other pictures of the store in the next post!

Today's outfit is what I had worn last weekend when my best friend was visiting me. We went to Select Citywalk to celebrate her birthday and had lunch at Sphagetti Kitchen, though she completely disliked their Italian cuisine! Maybe next time I would take her to somewhere where they serve spicy Indian food :D

Coming back to the theme of the post, whenever I am around with friends, colleagues or fellow fashion bloggers, there's a common topic of debate between us - Thrifted or Branded- which fashion is acceptable?
Personally, I don't care if I am wearing thrifted or branded stuff until and unless they suit me and are trendy!

My wardrobe is a mix of clothes and accessories which I have purchased from many high-end brands like Vero Moda, Zara, Mango ; retail brands like Westside, Lifestyle and also many tops from markets like Sarojini Nagar and GK M Block. And to be frank- I like purchasing high end brands only for special occasions, formal wear or if something really really catches my eye. 
I find it silly spending thousands on basic tees from high end brands. So most of my topwear are purchased either from retail brands or markets like Sarojini Nagar and even some Facebook stores and online shopping websites- which I have become addicted to recently.

Below are the pictures from last weekend where I decided to team up my classy ZARA skirt with a printed top which I had purchased from a Facebook store - the tag reads ASOS. Most of these stores get Export Surplus items and thus we get high end brands at very low prices. You should surely check out these FB stores to buy really affordable but trendy clothes.

Enjoy the pictures :D

Skirt - ZARA
