The brand was conceptualized over a period of nine months in collaboration with French design agency, Carlin and online fashion portal, Myntra with close inputs and designs from Deepika herself.

Deepika has always maintained that her style is mostly minimalist and elegant, which also reflects in her new collection launched exclusively through Myntra. She states - "These clothes are an extension of my Personality. This is what I like to wear".

In a fun-filled musical event, models sashayed the ramp wearing feminine florals, flowy dresses, delicate detailed tops, and other easy-to-wear styles that reflected a comfortable yet chic fashion statement that Deepika is known for.


The AW range from the collection was my favorite which featured sweater drapes in cream, camel hues and monochrome checks.

The collection also features premium silhouettes and fabrics like  hammered satin, viscose & jacquards, lurex knits, blended knits, super soft crepe and premium denims. It is also priced very reasonably, keeping in mind the country's youth, starting at Rs 1500 onwards only, available exclusively at Myntra app.

Get Your Roadie Attitude On with new Roadies Collection by VDOT | Roadies VDot Collection Launch


Hey lovelies!

So I have a great news for all the MTV Roadies fans, especially men - who always look forward to buying trendy, edgy apparel that would reflect their attitude and personality.

A few days back, I attended the launch of the exciting new collection by VDot - the edgy youth lifestyle brand from Van Heusen, which has collaborated with Viacom18 Consumer Products to create a unique line inspired by India’s longest running reality show on the biggest youth entertainment platform, MTV - Roadies

Raghu Ram, Rannvijay and Rajiv Laxman
A brand that exemplifies impeccable fashion credentials, VDot brings in a range of exciting, contemporary and fashionable pieces through the Roadies Vdot Collection



 The fashion show was nothing less than a fun-filled and adrenaline-fuelled Roadies episode that was organized at The Grand, New Delhi.

Walking on the ramp were renowned former contestants and true Roadies like Ayaz Ahmed, Gurmeet Singh, Varun Sood and Nikhil Sachdeva who killed the ramp with their confidence and attitude.

Turning the heat up as showstoppers were the  Roadies trio Rannvijay, Raghu Ram and Rajiv Laxman. The fashion show featured the Roadies Vdot Collection in style encompassing the perfect blend of pride, courage and indomitable spirit of what it takes to become a true Roadie - a firm belief in oneself.

The range provides a complete style solution to the youth of today that reflects the unabashed attitude, individuality and self-expression.
Roadies VDot collection focuses on the biker centric lifestyle which is associated with Roadies.

The collection features infusion of elements that co-exist to create a sense of functionality, yet are unique in design. Details like coated biker jackets, denim-leather mix and metal embellishments give the collection a grunge-biker feel.

The addition of bike denims with reflective tape details and reflective branding add to the ergonomic functional appeal. T-shirts and shirts with strong directional prints add the much needed sense of drama to the collection.

#SubscribeToSmooth with Gillette Venus | Week 4 Update | Benefits of Shaving with Gillette Venus Razor

Hey lovelies!

Hope you all are doing well and enjoyed the weekend! I am back with the Final update of my #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge with Gillette Venus.

I have now been using the Gillette Venus Razor since more than 4 weeks and I must say, it has definitely become one of my preferred methods of Hair Removal.


In the last 4 weeks, I haven't experienced any side effects from shaving with Gillette Venus and my skin has remained soft and smooth post shave.

Here are few benefits that I have experienced while shaving with Gillette Venus Razor :
  • Portable : With a travel-friendly packaging, you can keep Gillette Venus in your bag and carry it with you anywhere and everywhere. Infact it has been my savior as I often struggled to take out time for my parlour visits, but with Gillette Venus, I know I need not hurry to visit a parlour before any important occasion or vacation. 
  • Skin Friendly : I am so glad about the fact that it didn't harm my skin at all and I didn't experience any cuts or nicks ( Thanks to its strip indicator and handle with a strong grip that ensures a smooth shave). Also, I made sure I used the Gillette Shave Gel every time as I don't prefer Dry shaving which needs more caution and care.

  • Time Saving : Undoubtedly it has helped me save a lot of time as I don't need to rush to a parlour every time for hair removal and takes lesser time than any other Hair removal methods.
  • Value For Money : Gillette Venus razor features 3 blades that ensure a close and smooth shave in just 1 stroke and offers full value for money. I think even one razor would last me at least few more months and still works as good as a new razor.
I am delighted that I gave Shaving a go- all thanks to the Subscribe To Smooth challenge with Gillette Venus, which also helped me in breaking many Myths associated with shaving.
How has your experience been with Gillette Venus? Let me know in the Comments below.

PS : You can purchase Gillette Venus razor online from Amazon HereThe Gillette Venus razor is priced at Rs.199; the cartridges (pack of 4) is for Rs.449 and the complete gift pack costs Rs.849.

Dubai Diaries : Day 2 in Dubai | OOTD : Styling A Buttoned Midi Skirt

Hey lovelies!

Here's the post covering my second day spent in Dubai during which I covered the major attractions of the city and also went for a Cruise later in the evening.

My day started with a hearty breakfast and then we left for the City Tour at around 9am which started from the Dubai Creek in an AC coach.
Dubai Creek
Dubai creek is a saltwater creek that separates Bur Dubai and Deira. There are beautiful, high-rise buildings on the side of the creek which make for a delightful view while on a dinner Cruise in the evening.




Next we visited the Gold Souk of Dubai, located in Deira, which is the traditional Gold market and you will find hundreds of shops selling gold ornaments. I also saw some popular Indian names there like Malabar, Damas and more. 



On the way, we stopped by the Jumeirah Mosque for some photography and I also enjoyed an ice cream at the Haagen Dazs outlet just opposite the mosque.


 We also stopped by the Jumeirah open beach which is also close to the famous Burj al Arab hotel, and I must say is a beautiful beach with clean waters and white sands.

Well we also stopped by many other places like Atlantis, The Palm and it was a tiring day altogether.

As it was sunny and we had to travel for more than 4 hours, I decided to dress up casually in a light and breezy outfit featuring a buttoned midi skirt from Forever 21 and polka dots shirt from H&M.
Have a look at the outfit I wore for the day :

Top : H&M
Skirt : Forever 21
Shoes : ZARA
Bag : Belongs to a friend
Watch : Daniel Wellington
Shades : RayBan
Hat : Accessorize


Stay tuned for the Day 3 and Day 4 updates from my Dubai Diaries which I will publish shortly!
Love

#SubscribeToSmooth with Gillette Venus | Week 3 Update | Experience with Gillette Venus Razor

Hey lovelies!

I am back with the third update of my #SubscribeToSmooth challenge with Gillette Venus.
As I mentioned in the last post that so far I have been having a great experience with the Gillette Venus razor and also tried to bust some Myths associated with shaving.

In today's post I will cover a few more Myths related to shaving and how my skin feels post shaving for 3 weeks.



So, a major question which is also a Myth has been asked to me by many readers and it is that Shaving our Skin causes Discoloration.

Well, after having shaved my skin thrice, I have not felt any discoloration or uneven skin tone. The skin not only remains soft and smooth, but also feels more comfortable with shaving as compared to Waxing which usually causes rashes and redness.

Therefore, you should not worry about the myth that Shaving your skin regularly might darken it.

When it comes to my third experience with the Gillete Venus razor, I shaved my skin before my Goa vacation last week and it was a smooth experience again. It effectively removed the hair without causing any pain or irritation.
Its curve hugging blades make sure that it shaves closely and really smoothly without missing any hair.


I must say though that Gillette Venus has made my life relatively easy, as I don't have to wait for a parlour visit to get rid of the unwanted hair. It's quick, easy and totally safe for the skin.

Stay tuned for my final week update of the #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge!

OOTD : Suit Up in Co-Ordinates | Floral Co-Ords Set | Curvy Style Guide

Hey lovely people!

I am back with the first Outfit post of October. I know I have been very slow with the Outfit posts, and I still have to share few posts from my Dubai Diaries, but I plan to schedule them in the coming week so that I can start sharing the new outfits I have styled recently as well.

Coming to today's outfit post, it features one of the style that I have liked seeing on celebrities but didn't dare to wear it yet. But as one of my readers requested over mail for some style tips on Skirt Suit, I decided to do this shoot in a hurry.

I am wearing a beautiful Rose Girl Co-ordinates set from StalkBuyLove, featuring a sleeveless single-button jacket and a short pencil skirt. I styled it up with a white Crop top from Forever 21 and added a dash of color with my Steve Madden T-strap heels.

For a formal touch, I styled along a white satchel bag from StalkBuyLove which is trendy yet quite spacious for everyday use. I accessorized the look with a sleek watch and an Eiffel Tower pendant - both from Forever 21.

Have a look at the pictures :
Co-Ords set: Stalk Buy Love
Crop Top : Forever 21
Bag : Stalk Buy Love
Heels : Steve Madden
Watch : Forever 21
Pendant : Forever 21



The elegant Skirt Suit looks good on all body types, and you can pick an all-black number a ruffled skirt for an extra polished look. 
For a casual occasion, you can pick a Co-ords set, just like mine and accessorize it with trendy accessories to make a unique style statement. You can also mix up suit separates to instantly freshen up your wardrobe and to style your outfit pieces in multiple ways.

Do remember to pick a suit that fits you very well - both the skirt and the jacket - to look chic and well put-together.


Do you like Suiting up too? Let me know your views on this outfit in the Comments below.
