Neon Lights!! Trending Neon

IMG_5169

IMG_5169

I am totally in love with Neons and this year they are bigger and brighter. I think we need this brightness in our lives. Incase you are skeptical about the trend, I recommend start small with maybe just accessories and then go with one piece of clothing that matches something basic. Soon you will warm up to the trend.

I travelled to Dubai for 3 days in middle of December and it was a pretty chilled out trip since I was gonna fly off to US from there for 3 weeks so I was in no mood to really tire myself out there. Ofcourse Dubai mall can never and should never be missed if you in Dubai. Other than that went to Marina for dinner and LAMER for lunch.. Unfortunately I was expecting it to be cooler than it was, nevertheless always fun to hang out with friends in Dubai. Its a great city with a great vibe. Just a compilation of all the things I wore during my trip. Hope u guys checked out my DUBAI VLOG too

short cropped jacket

IMG_3438

IMG_3438

Since the weather in Mumbai doesn’t allow much of layering, I am very happy to have found this light weight short cropped jacket. The other day while cleaning my closet I also found my Michael Kors boots that I had completely forgotten about. I am so bummed that you cannot get a lot of usage out of boots in Mumbai and if you keep them for long they start withering. It has happened to all my faux leather outfits too and I have hardly worn them. Do you guys face this problem? Anyone knows how to take care of these items.

Anyway right now for the weather outside, you can totally switch up your basic LBD by adding a smart jacket and a pair of booties. My kind of Winter dressing for Tropical places :-)

Think Big!!!

The current mood in Fashion – The bigger the better!!
The Oversized trend seems to be getting more and more exaggerated and Hulkier. Across the runways we saw ginormous silhouettes being paraded in the name of fashion. TBH some looked absolutely comical but I guess that’s just an artistic creation. When it gets transformed to lesser mortals like us on the high street, its upto us to work it in our wardrobes. Right?
It actually got me thinking that how it completely defies the logic of fitness industry growing by leaps and bounds when the fashion industry is promoting this anti – fit trend!! However there are quite a lot of benefits to this trend for one it is more roomier and a lot more comfortable. That they are completely forgiving towards our bulges is a virtue that we can all get on board with. So embrace this trend with a whole lot of sartorial confidence.

I have mentioned it before too that I am into oversized clothes. For quite sometime I have been raiding my husband’s closet and believe you me that is like really oversized :-) I love white shirts so this time I flicked this one from his wardrobe and styled it with this beautiful choker that I got from one of the random shops in Lokhandwala market.
I liked the way this whole look turned out.
Its always fun styling oversized clothes. You can play with the silhouette and add belts or accessories to make them look stylised.

PS: I know my comment section on the blog is not working but you can always comment on my social media and lemme know if you like my looks. It is always good to hear from you guys.

From Runway to StreetStyle – Fanny Packs

IMG_3066

IMG_3066

Once considered a big fashion faux pas is now currently the IT Accessory of the season. If in early 90s you would see anyone carry a fanny pack it would only be for a utilitarian reason like keeping your keys or some money while jogging on the streets/parks. Hardly one could imagine carrying a fanny pack as a fashion accessory well with the exception of Carrie Bradshaw.. She could make anything look trendy.
Cut to 2018, fanny packs were there on the runway from chunky leather ones to sophisticated bright and sporty ones and are now being seen on the streets where the IT girls are surely making it the most trendy piece of item currently.
If you are someone like me who would want to go handsfree this 90s staple is making a huge trendy revival this season. Get one for yourself too

I saw a couple of these in Zara, Aldo, Steve Madden and H&M so they are pretty accessible

Oversized!! Black Friday SALE ON SHEIN

IMG_2532-02

IMG_2532-02

I am digging the current oversized trend, mainly because it allows me to hide all the imperfections under that gigantic size and also it makes the whole look so effortless. I am into that phase where I steal my husband’s clothes and wear them as dresses – sweats, blazers, Ts anything.. Especially on lazy days when you are not feeling it, the best thing is to throw on a big giant blazer, wear a pair of boots and call it Style :-)

I recently got this giant blazer from Shein. You can get your hands on this or any other item on Shein cos they have big discounts on Black Friday and is committed to giving you best shopping services.

Do visit their site and shop till you drop

Wedding fever!!

IMG_0445-01

IMG_0445-01

Ever Since DeepVeer dropped their fairytale wedding pics, I have been drooling over them as is the rest of the nation.Truly makes me wanna re – marry just for the way the whole wedding game has changed. The locales, the decor, the clothes, the jewelery, the makeup…. It’s just phenomenal. I don’t think any bride can look bad in today’s time & age. It’s the best time to be a bride cos I truly believe that with so much inspiration around and the kind of clothes and stuff available anyone can look as pretty as Deepika.. What happens after the marriage.. Well, thats a whole different debate ;-) but atleast you get to look like a million bucks and won’t cringe looking at your pics 20 years hence haha.

I loved this easy outfit put together for Ritu Seksaria. I love love love pairing a shirt with lehengas skirt. Its easy and pretty trendy. What do you think??

Cookie Cutter!!

IMG_8758

IMG_8758

What is Styling?? It is just an art of putting an outfit together. It gets depressing when fashion breeds an army of clones but that is what will happen when high street brands bring out designs that are trendy, off beat , rip offs and most importantly affordable. No longer is there any intrigue factor of where did this so and so piece of clothing come from? Well I am definitely a part of this clone army and am constantly wondering How do you make the normal cookie cutter H&Ms and Zaras look slightly different from the rest of the breed. The only way we can cut away is by adding a little spunk of your own.

It seems like I have re discovered belts all over again in last 1 and a half year. I like to belt up everything. No seriously. I am always looking out for ways in which I can add a belt to my look. I just feel that it gives a new dimension to styling. I feel accessories are the way to break from that cookie cutter slot so next time you are dressing up just sit back and think – what one thing can I add that will give this outfit a whole new dimension & voila you would have re invented the mundane.
