Unusuals S/S'16 Collection by W for Woman | The Unusuals Meet by W for Woman

Hey everyone!

Last weekend I attend an unusual Bloggers Meet organized by my favorite Ethnic wear brand - W for Woman. At The Unusuals Meet, W for Woman launched their Spring Summer'16 collection which is all about breaking the stereotypes and experimenting with your wardrobe.


Taking Fusion wear a step ahead, the latest collection by W for Woman features a genre of clothing that is rooted in Indian sensibilities yet adapts well to the western outlook.

Introducing a new concept the Stiletto Kurta, the collection highlights long straight kurtas which can be teamed up easily with churidar, pants or even jeans for a comfortable yet chic look that is perfect for work as well as casual day out.




If you love quirky prints, W's latest collection will surely catch your fancy, as it has vibrant colors and bold and geometric prints, artsy prints and color-block patterns that give a toned down look as well as flatter every body type.


W for Woman has surely taken their collection a notch up from last year with introduction of interesting hemlines, usage of sheer fabrics in the designs, a variety of cropped pants and culottes, long and short Gilets, capes and much more, that are perfect for a Layered look that is totally trending this season.


Their latest collection of accessories and clutches is also to die for and perfectly compliments the apparel available across the stores.

The key highlights of the collection are :
  • Capes and Gilets : The collection features long and short capes as well as gilets that can be teamed up with different kurtas for a fusion look. If you are a fan of the layered look, team up the stiletto kurtas with long sleeveless capes for a trendy look. The short gilets are also a fun addition to your fusion wardrobe which are easy to style and can be mixed and matched in different ways.
  • Cropped Pants and Culottes : Are you bored of styling your kurtas with the regular leggings or palazzos? Team up your favorite kurta with a trendy pair of culottes or cropped pants from the new collection of W for Woman, which are available in vibrant colors.
  • Artsy from the Wishful collection : If you love experimenting, Artsy from the Wishful collection will surely catch your fancy, as it beautiful combines Art with wearable fashion, bringing out a trendy yet wearable look for all occasions.


Here's my Unusual Layered look in which I teamed up a bright kurta with a contrast printed cape and palazzo pants.



Girls just like to Pose :D
With the kind of innovation that has been seamlessly incorporated into the conventional styles, W opens up avenues for experimenting and sets up a precedent to move out of one's comfort zone of fashion. 

Try something new; try something different; Explore with #‎Unusuals.!
It is not just fashion. It is a fashion intervention with looks that are
UNSEEN. UNDONE. #UNUSUALS.

OOTD - Mono-Mania : Embracing Monochrome | How to Style Black & White this Spring

Hey lovelies!

What's black, white and chic? Well, that's my favorite trend - Monochrome! This trend has cast a spell on me and I can't seem to get over it even in this season.

That's why when I saw this trendy black & white jacket at H&M, I knew I had to have it in my closet.
And now that the days have become slightly hotter, I decided to do a shoot wearing it, before it's time to keep it back in the closet.

So, on a lovely sunny day, I styled it with my new comfy midi skirt from ZARA and a printed boat-neck top from ZARA that perfectly complimented the skirt.
My trendy hat from Marks & Spencer (which also fetched me a lot of compliments that day) was the perfect pick to complete the look, with a pair of stylish River Island wedges.

As usual, I accessorized it with just a heart-shaped Accessorize pendant, a Fossil watch and a classic Tommy Hilfiger bag.

Have a look at the pictures clicked by my bestie :






Hat : Marks & Spencer
Top : ZARA
Skirt : ZARA
Jacket : H&M
Wedges : River Island
Bag : Tommy Hilfiger
Watch : FOSSIL
Necklace : Accessorize

Monochrome is a trend which is the easiest of all to carry off, no matter what your shape or body type is. You can either sport in a layered manner like I did, or just pair up a classic white shirt or top with a pair of black pants for a chic look.

But if you are up for experimentation, try pairing printed pieces like my monochrome jacket for a headturner look.

When I got a chance to review the website and do a shoot with the pretty Jewelry they have on offer, I knew I was up for a surprise.

Because of the ongoing wedding season, I decided to go for Ethnic jewelry that would go well with the outfits I had purchased for the upcoming weddings in my family. Making a choice from their extensive collection of necklace sets, rings, bangles and maang tikas wasn't easy, but after applying some filters according to my requirement, I chose this lovely and delicate gold tone Pearl drop Necklace set with matching earrings.

Co-incidentally, I was in Jaipur over a weekend, and I decided to shoot with the pretty Voylla jewelry in the backdrop of the stunning palaces in the city.




I wore the neckpiece as a Maang Tika for the shoot because hey, experimenting with your jewelry is always a great idea and I think this lovely neckpiece did complete justice being worn as a headpiece.


I also purchased a set of Golden Kada with pearl beads which matched beautifully with my neckpiece set and is perfect to wear with your ethnic wear as well as gowns just like I did.

I also picked a trendy Crystal ring from which has a classic theme that goes well with western as well as ethnic outfits.

Review : OPPO F1 Selfie Expert | Elegant Budget Cameraphone for Selfie Lovers

Hey lovelies!
If you follow me on my social media profiles, you might be aware that I was recently in Mumbai for the launch of the latest offering by OPPO mobiles.

OPPO has launched their amazing new smartphone, or should I say Cameraphone - F1 Selfie Expert - a mid-range phone for all the Selfie-lovers. Launched with much fanfare at JW Marriott Hotel in Mumbai, OPPO F1 Selfie Expert promises to give you the best Selfies ever with many other interesting features.


Just like my last reviews for OPPO N3 and OPPO R7 Plus smartphones, I got my hands on this beauty to experience its amazing features and here I am with its first impressions :

Designed for the Selfie-addicts, OPPO F1 serves as a blessing with its sleek metallic body, 8 MP Front Camera, Screen Flash and light Band edge design. This cameraphone would surely make you reach for it instead of your DSLR camera every time you step out.


Here's looking at its amazing FEATURES in detail :

The first thing that will make you grab this phone is its attractive velvety Metallic body that is made from premium quality metal alloy which gives it a soft and exquisite feel.
Its 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 Protected Display makes it extra scratch-resistant, proving to be a boon to people like me who tend to drop their phones a lot. The 5.0 arc-edge screen is easier as well as a delight to hold, while having light graceful curves that make it really slim and light.

It has a 3GB RAM which makes it faster while using multiple Apps on the phone and perfect for daily usage. Infact, I used it over my Mumbai trip to complete my important tasks like Emails, managing my social media profiles, make Notes and much more in a jiffy.



The Perfect SELFIE Phone :

Talking about what makes it the much-talked about Selfie Expert, OPPO F1 boasts of an 8MP front camera which helps you take amazing, clearer Selfies like never before, making sure that each shot is brighter, clearer and sharper.



It also has a Screen Flash, which enables you to take perfect Selfies even in low-light conditions with a carefully adjusted brightness level that is optimized for natural-looking shots.

Much like the previous OPPO smartphones, F1 Selfie Expert also has the Beautify 3.0 feature that makes you look stunning every time. Using the pre-set filters of this feature, you can enhance your Selfie experience, and click pictures that give you the desired looks.


Whether you want to brighten your face, or want to quick-fix your blemishes, this feature would do it all for you, in just one click.

Have a look at few of the many Selfies I clicked through it :

Got the Perfect click with Aanchal from Delhi Style Blog

Trying Beautify 3.0 with Srish from Style Fashion Etc
No camera has ever captured my hair so beautifully :D
Can I get the Selfie Queen title now? :D
The Secondary camera is no less, and has 13 MP, f/2.2, phase detection autofocus main camera with single LED flash which helps you get pictures as good as a digicam.

Battery Life :

OPPO F1 is equipped with a 2500mAh sealed in battery which is an improvement from its R7 and R7 Lite variants. I charged my phone once in the morning and was able to use it for an entire day without any further charging for clicking pictures, checking & replying emails, listening to music and browsing the internet for long.

This makes the battery life pretty good and most of the other smartphones I have used, need a charge in 6-8 hours after pretty much the same usage.

Priced at just Rs 15,990 - OPPO F1 Selfie Expert is surely one of the best budget smartphones to consider if you are a social media savvy person who loves taking pictures - well to be precise Selfies - and wants a phone which is not only loaded with latest features, but also looks good and makes you look good ;) ..

The #F1HotSale of Bright & Beauitful OPPO F1 is going to start from 4th Feb to 6th Feb and would be available at various stores in the country.

Love
Nitika

Review : EthnicThread App - Your Ultimate Source for Ethnic Fashion

Hey lovelies!

Its February already and I just realized I was totally inactive on the blog last month, mainly because I was traveling for half part of the month.
Well, I will soon be posting stories and shoots I did while I was traveling and attending events & weddings.

Talking about weddings, Wedding season is in full swing in India currently, and I am sure you all must have atleast 1-2 weddings to attend this season. With wedding season, the most common issue arises ie. What to Wear and How to Style our Clothes without looking boring or repetitive!



Well, finally there is an App which addresses atleast few of these concerns. Focused on Ethnic Fashion and Desi girls, EthnicThread, founded by Saylee Raje, is an app that gives us all a chance to exchange, sell or rent personally owned or designed fashion, earn money and always have something new to wear.

It also serves as a fun way to discover what's trending around the world in Ethnic sphere. I have been using the App since a while, and here's what I like and disliked about the same :

  • EthnicThread is an app focused on Ethnic wear which is a category often neglected by many shopping apps.

  • It enables you to interact with people globally to sell, buy or exchange Ethnic wear.
  • You can also connect with Fashionistas who love to showcase their Personal style and get inspiration for styling your wardrobe pieces.
  • EthnicThread is the first of its kind to give us all ability to do something about our pre-loved Ethnic clothing while giving talented women a chance to list their side hobbies on the app.
  • Instead of being a marketplace, it acts as a social community where you can interact and discover fashion in a fun way, apart from buying or selling goods.
  • Whether you are looking for Outfit inspiration for an upcoming function, or want to sell your hardly used Saree, EthnicThread is your go-to App for all your Ethnic fashion woes.
  • Wish to list your services? You can join the App and list services like Makeup & Hair, Skin Care, Fitness & Dance etc.

The only flip side is that it would take a little while to get a hang of this App and to completely understand how to use it, but once you do, it would be worth the effort.

I have also created my profile there as I am a sucker for pretty Indian clothes, and it helps me connect with people having similar taste in Ethnic fashion, plus offer my Services as a Blogger.

Want to be a part of this fun platform? Download EthnicThread app now from your Android or Apple device : www.ethnicthread.com.

Love
Nitika
