Femina Believe - Makeup workshop

Spent a lovely Sunday with the Femina Believe team for a makeup workshop here in Pune. Femina Believe is a learning academy for women specializing in workshops in make-up, personality development, communication skills and dining etiquette. They have recently launched their first training center in Pune after their existing centers in Mumbai and Delhi. I was invited for a makeup workshop which was led by Amrit Kaur who is a renowned  make-up artist from Pune. I had a great time catching up with fellow bloggers and we learned a hell lot about makeup techniques and different make up looks for the season. I think it is a great idea to attend this workshop as you can learn the professional techniques of makeup from a professional makeup artist. Learning these tricks and knowing your products can make all the difference in your day to day make up. 

Femina Believe launches a selection of short thorough workshops in subjects like:
  • Makeup: Empower yourself with techniques to overcome your self-consciousness and skillfully apply makeup for every occasion.
  • Styling: Understand the nuances of styling to make the right outfit choices based on various parameters.
  • Dining etiquette: Be assured to dazzle by learning the elements and characteristics of graceful dining.
  • Communication skills & body language: Nurture personal and professional relationships with the ability to project the right personality.

White Summer Tee - Outfit of the Day

White tee with summery bright print is a summer essential for your wardrobe. The air is getting warmer here in India and what is best to beat the summer heat than a loose white tee with a pair of denim shorts. I found this cute printed tee at Koovs and i am in love with it as it is comfortable and perfect for the daytime. By night i like to wear it with black knee ripped jeans and a leather jacket. 
These denim shorts are my favorite pair from Zara, literally can't live without them. Here is my day's outfit and how i would wear my tee and denim shorts.

I will be at the Lakme Fashion Week, Mumbai this Friday from 12pm to 3pm. So if any of you will be there, let's meet and greet!! 

Have a lovely week ahead!

Serendipity Bling Dress by Sugarlips

This lovely beige and white striped midi length dress with gold sequins details by Sugarlips, is the perfect dress for red lipstick lovers. It is so because red lips go so perfectly with neutrals & gold together. Also the two red roses buttons at the back is a hint. Designer Sakina Amin likes to call this dress the Serendipity bling as it denotes a pleasant surprise. This dress has some interesting details like the crescent cut neckline and gold sequins shoulder flap. I wore them with my red heels from Zara, red bag from Charles & Keith and Ruby Woo lipcolor from M.A.C.

IT GIRL {Style Feature} - DJ Prerna

Hey guys! I know it has been long since i posted an 'it girl'. I have been so busy with the label and collaborations, but now i am back on the horse with the it girl features.

This week our 'it girl' is the super gorgeous disk jockey from Pune, DJ Prerna.
She is a very good friend and i am in awe with her talent and beauty. And by beauty i don't mean just external beauty, she is one of the people i know with the most compassionate and caring heart. What i remember best of her is me wanting to dance all night and she stayed up late to play some amazing deep tunes just for me in her boiler room. Oh the boiler room! She has the most amazing boiler room at her house where she practices and creates music. The pictures below are of the same room.
This dusky beauty knows how to combine music with fashion. Her style is impeccably chic and sexy, with midriff baring and ankle boots as her signature ones. I did style her a bit girly for the 3rd look with the Lola skirt and she carried that with equal amount of grace. The first look of her on the Harley is my favorite. With the complete denim look, dark makeup and just a hint of jewels she looks like a biker barbie.

Follow her : DJ PRERNA

I bet you are all intrigued to know her music and see her play.
So here's the bait -

Prerna is playing live at 1 lounge on 13th March, Friday. And it is also her birthday!!
I will surely be there with my team, so come over you all and let's party!

Where : 1 Lounge 

When : 13th March, Friday (tomorrow)

Come let's meet and greet, and shake some bootayyy!

Here is a small interview of Prerna, just to know this beauty a little more :

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a dreamer, kind of an introvert. I live for passion n that's why I chose to be surrounded by music all the time. I love the feeling that I get when I am spinning, seeing people happy n dance to my beats.

What inspired you to be a DJ.

I had always been very passionate about music. I used to travel a lot to Vegas n party like crazy, catch up on all my favorite DJs and watching them spin was what inspired me to go ahead with it. It was Jissmon only who encouraged me to give it a shot and it turned out to be awesome. What's better than making your passion your career!

What genres you like to play.

Electro House, Progressive House, Deep & Tech House, Techno.

What are your other passions.

Playing football, dancing salsa & bachata and exploring new places around the world.

How would you describe your personal style.

My personal style defines me completely, I generally don’t follow trends I am kind of a free spirit. My personal style would be a bit of grungy, a little bit girly, a little chic. Basically a bit of everything. I wear what I feel good in.

What is in your handbag.

Burt’s bee lip balm (can’t go without it), earphones, my Ralph Lauren sunglasses, a couple of flash drives with music, some cash n credit cards.

Your favorite fashion destination (city or online website).

I travel to Vegas very often, so I shop a lot from there. The Fashion Show mall there has everything I go looking for. I shop online a lot from A&F, Hollister, ASOS.

Favorite color at the moment.

Red (for my lips).

What do you think is a notable trend today and what are your thoughts on it.

Boyfriend Jeans - I think its a good trend but we must try to find the perfect version according to our body type. I am kind of petite so that look doesn't go very well on me, I try to incorporate that with a little skinnier version of destroyed denims.

What do you spend money on the most.

Good pair of boots.

What is your most adored piece in your closet.

It’s my BCBG Max Azria Jacket. Its a beige silk Jacket which has kept me warm for the entire winter. I have thrown it over everything right from a casual evening to a night out.

What's on your iPod at the moment.

Words & Chance - Eric Volta & Sebastian Voigt ft Forest Faces - Glover Galantis - Gold Dust Waves - Mr Probz (Robin Shulz remix) Tether - Eric Prydz vs. CHVRCHES

House of Trois - Market Fair & Trunk Show

Hey guys! The first Market fair & Trunk show by House of Trois at High Spirits was a complete sell out. The first event was organized at High Spirits and the 5 designers showcased their collection at the venue. They also organized a surprise runway show with the models wearing the designer's show stopper garments which was loved and immensely cheered by the crowd. Each designer had their stalls designed according to their theme and color palette which made each stall unique in their own way. The crowd poured in and we saw an amazing response at the stalls. Here are the pictures of the event.


Mariposa Love

Let me start with introducing myself first.

I am Natasha, founder of MARIPOSA LOVE, the blog & the label. A girl obsessed with fashion, styling, music, travel and the beautiful souls i meet along my way in life. Living in Pune, India currently.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2010 is when Mariposa Love called out to me. I started blogging about my adventures in fashion and travel as every country with distinctive and exciting personalities inspired me tremendously. Started off as a hobby, i found my true calling as a blogger and stylist. Now i am based out of Pune, India and Mariposa Love has grown into a label and evolving into a platform i did only dream of. 

Mariposa Love is the one stop high fashion store. Unique and quintessentially designed just for you, we offer a range of ensembles and accessories like none other. The blogger style clubbed with our amazing designs are here to help you find your fashion calling

We are soon going to launch our Online Store, so you can soon shop our full collection from home.

Upside Down

Upside Down celebrates coming together of two contrasting minds of its lead designers- Maviya Khan and Nikita Sharma. Bringing together the creativity through their line of garments, Upside Down offers a fresh perspective at fashion.Our collections are inspired by nature. Everything in our garments is borrowed from the beauty of nature around us. The various hues, textures and flow of the fabric pay tribute to the forces of nature around us.
Staying friendly to the environment, our current collection emphasizes on a lot of material re usability. The garments are highly personalized, making sure they are as unique as the wearer. We believe individuality is the flavor for the young and outgoing consumer of today. It is made for the person who is chic, fun and has an eye for interesting details.
Our final two garments are inspired from two of the most alluring and beautiful birds of the world- the flamingo and the humming bird. We picked out these two birds in particular cause of their interesting upside down characteristics. Keeping their key features in mind the flamingo being flamboyant and the humming bird being playful, we have derived our color scheme and the silhouettes for these two garments.
We look forward to launching these and other exciting designs in the coming future.

S by Subhashini Baghel

Since early childhood, I had shown inclination towards the glamorous side. They say playing dress up begins at a early age of 5 and never really ends up & that became the most inspirational statement for my life.  I had a love for fashion since early age. I grew up to graduate with a degree in fashion from school of fashion technology, pune in 2014. During the journey of four years in the fashion world I planned up to to start up with my own label and hit the fashion market with something new and innovative. This season I have planned  to showcase my very first collection adding a Subhashini Baghel twist . I hope my audience like and appreciate it. I have implemented a touch of my trademark hue electric pink & the party culture into the ensemble keeping in mind the wearability and the commercial aspect . 
The signature style of "S" by Subhashini Baghel is the presence of electric pink hue in almost all of her ensembles with the additional touch of flare providing the silhouettes a classy yet sassy look. Fashion for me is how to carry a simple silhouette into a classy one. The collection is all about the party culture , a lot of chic and bling stuff. The price range of the costumes are kept minimal keeping in mind the student and the young crowd can easily afford it. 

Harshita Bhatija

Plunge into the flamboyance of the upcoming high - octane label by Harshita Bathija.
The line is a glam spring resort collection

Garments :
Twin sets, maxis, cape cardigans, maxi tops, skirts, gowns.

Edgy, chic, elegant cuts and lines.

The line falls between Pret and Couture/Demi couture and has a minimalist approach with emphasis on detailing and fine silhouettes.

The look that NM strives to provide it’s clientele with is, Chic yet elegant with a spark of color.
