OOTD - A Sweet Pastel Story | Maxi Skirt and Embellished Top

Hey lovely readers!
It's the last day of April and I have an exciting Outfit post to share before this month ends. So, you all must have realized my love for maxi skirts now as I am flaunting many maxi skirts in my latest posts. After all, not only they slim you down but are also one of the most versatile outfits to style this summer.

While shopping at MAX a couple of weeks back, I spotted this lovely printed skirt in a pastel green shade and I was completely in awe with it. A soothing print and dual slits give this skirt a sexy yet sweet touch. I instantly know this is going to be one of my favorite pieces this summer. I picked a lovely off-white top with cut-out work and embellishments on the sleeves from MAX to team up with this skirt.

I paired my outfit with a pair of white strappy sandals from ZARA, an envelope clutch from Accessorize and a floral headband. To highlight the outfit, I wore a statement neckpiece from Juvalia & You which has these green beads that perfectly matched the skirt.

Have a look at the pictures below :

#ItsPersonal - Future of Fashion in Mobile-only World and what it Means for Fashion Consumers

Hey lovely readers!
Hope you all are doing great and enjoying reading the latest posts. Just a day before I was analyzing my blog readership and what just surprised me was the number of readers who are browsing my blog from their mobiles. When I had started out my blog, it was all about notebooks and laptops, and 90% of my readers used to come through these devices.

That was also because even though the world was being revolutionized by smartphones, the Internet Connectivity over phone was still poor and websites weren't compatible to work on many smartphones.


But in the last 2 years, Smartphones have taken browsing Internet to another level. You can not only read your favorite blogs or news with a click on your mobile, you can also easily shop on-the-go with Online Shopping Apps like Myntra that have made shopping really perfect.

Currently, I am getting almost 25% readers landing at my blog through Android devices and 10 % from iPhone which is pretty impressive. This also pushed me to make a mobile-compatible website and I am also working on getting an App designed to make it easier for my readers to browse my posts on the-go.

Not only this has made the Fashion industry really competitive, it is also serving as a boon for consumers ie. us the Fashion lovers. Imagine while browsing through clothes at a shopping mall, you come across a dress which is perfect but looking at the price, you wish it was on a discount.

OOTD - Back To School Look | Layered Top and Denim Capris

Hey everyone!
This weekend has been a rather sad one as Nepal and many parts of India faced a deadly earthquake and Nepal is still suffering through the after shocks. My prayers are with Nepal and just hoping that there are no more after shocks so that the rescue operations can run smoothly.

Coming back to this post, I have been trying to avoid shopping these days as my wardrobe is literally full of new clothes and shoes. But I took my cousin out for shopping last weekend and couldn't resist picking out a few clothes from the latest collection at MAX Fashion stores.

Its been ages since I last wore a pair of capris which I really adored back in days when I used to go to school. They were a fun alternative to jeans or shorts, and were quite cool and comfortable. But the style is again back in fashion, and I was delighted to find a pair of denim capris at MAX which also fit my quite well.

I teamed up these trendy capris with a graphic layered top from MAX which has a mix of vibrant hues that scream of Summer. Completing the look was a cool backpack with birds printed all over and a pair of flatforms in candy pink color from Westside.
My accessories game is quite minimal in Summers and I just wore a sleek neckpiece and a wrist watch with the outfit.

Here are some pictures of the outfit :

Go chic with Fashionable Ballerinas this Summer


Hey everyone!
If you are just like me who loves wearing heels and can't complete an outfit without the fancy and trendy heels, you must be having the same feeling like I do when I get back home and swap my heels with a pair of comfortable flats. Flat shoes are all the rage this season and even celebs and models are sporting flats on the ramp.

While flat shoes are available in many designs, my favorite style in flat shoes is Ballerinas which are cute, cozy and comfortable at the same time. And ballerinas don't have to be boring as you will find an endless variety of ballerinas to choose from.

Here I am covering 4 main styles of Ballerinas that you should include in your wardrobe this season :
  • Open Toe Ballerinas :
One of the hottest trends of this season, open toe ballerinas are both girly and chic with a peep-toe effect. Also as they let your toes to peep out, they have more space at the tips for broad feet. They can be easily styled with skater skirts, A-line dresses and fitted pants.

OOTD : Fashion Week Diaries - What I Wore to Amazon India Fashion Week (2)

Hey lovely people!
I am back with another Outfit Post featuring one of the funky outfits I wore during Amazon India Fashion Week. On Day 3 of the AIFW I decided to wear a beautiful layered midi skirt and graphic tee which I picked recently from PROMOD.

Midi skirts are all the rage this season and is a welcome change from mini skirts as they look graceful yet trendy. They are also being featured on the ramp and celebs are sporting these frequently, making midi length skirt a must-have in your closet.

And adding to the grace of this skirt is its net layer and shimmer base inner skirt, making it perfect to glam up your look. I teamed up this trendy skirt from Promod with a graphic print casual T-shirt from Promod to add a cool look to the outfit. I completed the look with a pair of MAX shoes and ALDO wrist watch.

But the star of my outfit surely was my MARA Fringe clutch by VITASTA in a classy chevron pattern. VITASTA is a designer brand launched back in 2011 and is a brain child of Aditi Vitasta Dhar, an NID graduate.

Scroll through the post to know more about VITASTA and have a look at the complete outfit details:

Food Diaries - South Indian Food Popular in Delhi | My Favorite South Indian Food Restaurants


Hey everyone!
I am back with another post as part of my Food Diaries, and this time I am writing about one of my favorite Indian cuisines - South Indian Food. I am a pure Punjabi but there are times when I love to eat different foods especially the amazing variety of Dosas.

It is also my go-to food over the weekends when I am not in a mood to indulge in Paranthas and Aloo-Puri. I quickly rush to a nearby South Indian food restaurant or order a South Indian thali online and get it delivered to my house.

Here I am covering few of my favorite South Indian restaurants in Delhi :
  • Sagar Ratna : Well, definitely I couldn't begin the list without mentioning Sagar Ratna - one of the most popular South Indian food restaurants in India. I was introduced to Sagar Ratna as a child when an outlet had opened in my hometown and I visited the place for a birthday party. We had ordered their Family Dosa - a very scrumptious 4 feet dosa which is perfect to share when you are dining there in a group. Also, the prices are quite reasonable which make this place one of my top favorites restaurants even now.

Review - Frontier, The Ashok, Delhi | Authentic North West Frontier Cuisine in Delhi

Hey everyone!
Today I will be posting one of the first Food Reviews on the blog. If you follow my Zomato account, you must be knowing that I am a Foodie and I love trying new cuisines every now and then.
And today I am going to share about an amazing restaurant located at one of the most popular luxury hotels in Delhi - The Ashok.

The Frontier at The Ashok is a contemporary fine-dining restaurant which serves Authentic North West Frontier Cuisine and is one of the best places in Delhi to enjoy this cuisine.

Northern Western Cuisines are strongly influenced by the rich cultural surroundings of the region. The food blends in the mouth-watering flavors of cooking whose roots can be traced to the cookery styles used in Afghanistan and Iran. North Western region is well known for their Mughlai and Tandoori cuisines. Within the diet, meat plays a big role compared to other South Asian cuisines. The most popular meats are lamb, beef and chicken.

Once I reached the hotel, I was immediately drawn towards this restaurant which has a formal yet classy appeal to it. The place boasts of 76 covers of contemporary fine dining and is running its operations since 1982.

OOTD : Fashion Week Diaries - What I Wore to Amazon India Fashion Week (1)

Hey lovely readers!
Hope you are enjoying the latest posts on the blog. With last month being very busy due to Fashion Week and some personal commitments, I had many blog posts planned and saved in Drafts which I am publishing now back to back.

And today I am sharing one of the Outfits I wore to the Amazon India Fashion Week. Well Fashion Week is all about running crazily from one auditorium to the next to attend the shows on time or checking out the Designer stalls and hanging out with friends. Therefore, I try to keep my style during Fashion Week casual yet trendy.

Sticking to a laidback yet chic look, I decided to wear a summery Crop Top and Skirt set from Koovs.com on the Day 2 of AIFW. I bought this light blue lace crop top outfit last month and totally fell in love with the skirt which has a peek-a-boo effect. The crop top also features a sheer back which gives a sexy vibe without looking vulgar or over-the-top. This the second crop top-skirt outfit I now have, apart from the various printed crop tops I have in my wardrobe.

I teamed up the outfit with a layered Forever 21 neckpiece, strappy sandals by ZARA and a multi-layer wrist watch from ALDO. To break the monotony of the blue color, I paired the outfit with a statement clutch from Accessorize.
Have a look at the pictures below :

Review & Shopping Haul - Pretty Secrets | Buy Lingerie & Nightwear Online India

Hey everyone!
I am back with another website review, and this time I am featuring an Online brand which specializes in Lingerie and Nightwear for women. I am talking about Pretty Secrets - an online shopping destination for sexy & trendy collection of bras, panties, lingerie sets, nightwear, swimwear, activewear & women dresses.

PrettySecrets.com offers women (and men) the facility of seamlessly browsing through an exhaustive collection of high quality lingerie from the comfort of your own computer, The brand aims to provide a plethora of styles and sizes catering to every woman’s needs and wants.

Now, when it comes to shopping for lingerie, I prefer to buy it online as whenever I visit lingerie stores they are either not carrying the styles I want in my size or the staff becomes rather too pushy and start showing me designs I don't wish to buy. Therefore, I prefer buying my favorite lingerie online and take a pick from the wide selection available from various brands.

So, when I checked PrettySecrets.com, I fell in love with many of the styles available and decided to place my first order with them. Here are few pictures of my haul and my experience shopping with them -

Feature : Advent of The Dawn | Shantanu & Nikhil Spring-Summer'15 Connotation

Hey lovely readers!
A few weeks back, before the AIFW madness in Delhi, I had visited Shantanu and Nikhil's flagship store at Defence Colony, Delhi for an exclusive preview of their Spring Summer couture collection.

I had also shared a preview on my social media channels - Instagram and Facebook and many readers wanted to see more from the collection. Well today in this post I will be covering more images from the collection.

Their haute couture collection titled - "Advent of The Dawn" featured the designer duo's trademark attention-to-detail in the form of luxurious gowns, quirky graphic prints, a diverse color palette including gold, ivories and peaches, and dramatic headdresses which personified their muse, the Dutchess.


As I entered their flagship store, I instantly remembered  the Fashion Float they had designed for DLF Emporio, Delhi back in February and the designer duo explained that the bespoke collection was in continuation to that series.

The collection covers their muse's journey, her signature style, as she gets ready in her powder room and sways in a couture gown for a masquerade ball to a lavish tea party in her garden.

Review - Rangrage.in - Online Lifestyle Store | Buy Hand Painted Jeans Online

Hey everyone!
Don't you think the weather is acting a lot crazy lately (in parts of Delhi-NCR)? I mean it's sunny a few days and over the weekends it starts raining. Well, I am not complaining until it remains pleasant and I can spend my weekend shopping and chilling with my friends :D.

So, today I am back with another Review featuring an exciting online lifestyle store - Rang Rage  - which has made its mark by presenting Art in the form of apparel, accessories, home decor and more.

Rang Rage is a brainchild of a bunch of art-crazed people who want to infuse art in everyday life and make it not only affordable but also usable. They want each of their products to tell an inspiring tale. 
Based in Indore, Rang Rage is a design house of apparels and home décor which is set to create a strong social impact on the artists and their families.

The highlight of the brand is their hand-painted designs, be it a cushion, tissue box, alarm clock, bag or clutches. Each of the design shows the efforts and skills of the artists who try their best to make the item unique and classy.
Rang Rage offers a wide variety of products including apparel for kids, card holders, clutches, handbags, cushion covers, wall paintings, dining combos and more, but what caught my attention the most is their exclusive range of Hand Painted Denims for Men & Women

Hey lovely readers!
Hope you all have a great weekend. I visited Adventure Island, a theme park in Delhi today and had a great time with my cousins.
A few days back I had received an invite for a launch event in Mumbai but due to some reason I couldn't attend the same. But well I made sure that I get all the deets from the event to keep you updated about what's going on in the Indian Fashion industry.

So last week, with a grand event at JW Marriott Mumbai, Birla Cellulose, from Aditya Birla Group, unveiled their much awaited new age fabric brand, LIVA with their new stylish brand ambassador, the glamarous Bollywood diva -  Kangana Ranaut. The brand also announced the launch of Liva Accredited Partner LAPF at the event.

 You will be wondering now what exactly is LIVA and what made a star like Kangana Ranaut get associated with a fabric brand.

"LIVA is a new age fabric that is natural, fluid, and fashionable which infuses fluidity into the garment. LIVA is made from natural fibers/ cellulosic that is derived from wood pulp.  Hence, it gives a beautiful flow to the garments and enhances ease of movement.  It takes the shape of the body and hence gives you perfect look."

Style Like The Boss - Hair Makeover by Ralf Boss at BED HEAD by TIGI India

Hey lovelies!
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter and Good Friday. If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you might remember the time when I posted about my hair makeover with the Boss. Well, I had a great time meeting Ralf Boss, Creative Director, TIGI, who did his magic with my hair and showed me how I can rock a chic, wavy hairdo.

"TIGI is a professional luxury hair care and hair styling brand. TIGI has over 40 years of hands-on experience, redefining standards of excellence, creating a wide range of products suited for diverse hair types and consumer requirements.

My hair makeover session started with cleansing my hair with Resurrection Level 3 Shampoo & Conditioner from the Urban Antidotes range of BED HEAD. It has an amazing formula which targets areas in most need of repair and brings dead-end hair back to life once and for all. 

I could feel my hair ends which have become dry due to the color looking really soft and smooth after the wash.
