DEAL JEANS - The Party Girl


With Christmas around the corner and New Year Eve following up, I am sure that many must be going frantic hunting for the perfect outfits. After all it's a weekend full of 'Christmas Merriness’ and parties.

Many factors come to play an important role in picking one's look!
  • What's in fashion?
  • What colors to work with?
  • Which, cuts, patterns and/or silhouettes are trending?
Trust me when I say, I understand your dilemma.

Even if I do know about "what's hot and what's not"; shopping still doesn't get any easier.

Deal Jeans recently launched the "Party Collection", a collection that caters to the young urban women of today. A brand after my own heart, Deal Jeans aims to fulfill every girls' desire to own a wardrobe that is fashion forward, trend appropriate and compliments one's figure.

Savannah by OCM - Embracing The Indo Western


At a wedding function, at a cocktail party, or to the office - one could choose ‘fusion fashion’ and walk in gracefully.
Fusion fashion is the most sought after trend for the modern woman, regardless of the occasion. The one reason why indo-fusion fashion is so loved by the modern Indian woman is because it incorporates western touches to our existing ethnic outfits which we never want to part from.
Recently we have seen a lot of celebrities opting for ethnic fusion outfits for events and I personally think it is fabulous way to be unique and fashionable.
Today, I am collaborating with the new brand Savannah in the fusion fashion space.
Savannah is made of lawn cotton which is one of the world’s best cottons. It is soft, takes colour printing extremely well, and makes for meticulous finish and an attractive drape.

Trend Alert - The Sock Boots


Every season we see trends coming in, like last summer the white sneakers took the fashion world by storm. This winter let's all hail 'The Sock Boots'. Yep! You heard it right. A hybrid of heels and socks, they have become the unlikely big shoe trend of 2016. It sounds confronting, but when you see how these fashion-girls and celebrities have styled them, or designers like Phillip Lim and Versace have interpreted them, you'll want a pair pronto.

HIDESIGN : The Luxury Leather House


The designer fashion world is not often a place that adheres to the old adage about less being more, but when it comes to leather goods, sometimes it's true. Bags designed to be sleek are generally made of beautiful materials and are more likely to have careful, considered finishes, after all, they're the only things you see when you look at a bag that's free of extraneous design elements.

Hidesign, a brand that takes pride in the minute details of the craftsmanship in all its creations of leather handbags, clutches and wallets. Founded in 1978, Hidesign has brought an alternative perspective to the serious shoppers. For over three decades Hidesign has brought nothing but the best in design and style for the ever-so-keen shopping connoisseurs.

The Indian Couture - Kalki Fashion



 I feel a change coming over, a shift in the understanding of what people want and what people need. Fashion in India is no longer subjected solely to mass production for the masses. With the youth finally taking over the reigns, India is set to enter the international fashion frontier with new designers and artists. 

In the past few posts you must've noticed that I mention the increase in ateliers that are finally catering to what I and many like me, love. The fashion house 'Kalki', caters to the eclectic tastes of their clientele, taking the next step from High-End to Couture; offering a fresh take on ethnic wear in all forms of pattern-cuts and silhouettes. From the stunning Lehenga-Cholis, Sarees & Salwar-Kurtas with intricate embellished and embroidered details, to the exclusively designed wedding trousseau in an array of high-quality fabrics and in an assortment of over thousand varied styles, 'Kalki' is yet another ultimate shopping spot to stop at.

'Kalki' puts aside the stereotypical approach of apparel making in India, and ups the ante with a fusion of the old and the new along with a variety of embellishing and embroidery techniques.

Basics Done Right - Diesel + Kanso



As a person who's constantly on the hunt for something new, something relevant, the DIESEL 'Denim Master Studio', was truly a breath of fresh air. They've already been a massive hit in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore, and now, finally they've brought it to Pune. This concept by DIESEL is something that I feel truly would appeal to everybody. The 'Denim Master Studio' is where you've to be if you're one who loves customised denims, be it your jeans and/or jackets. You get a tรชte-ร -tรชte with the 'Denim Masters', who've been trained under strict guidance in Italy, to assist the clientele in sharing their ideas of customisation.

 It was on a day like any other, nothing beyond the ordinary; that was until I entered the DIESEL 'Denim Master Studio'.

ATARA by Namita Kataria



In the last decade India has witnessed a 'boom' in Fashion & Arts in all its aspects, enumerable brands and labels have come forth to present the population with apparels that appease the hunger of women & men alike.

Now, when it comes to putting India under the microscope, we've not got our ethnic wear but, there are styles, silhouettes, sleeve cuts, neck-lines to work with. And of course, since we already know that the list of brands is endless, both old and new. This is where, I as a blogger come to your aid.

I'd like to introduce you to Pune based designer Namita Kataria. She's completed her studies in Fashion Design and exudes a fierce passion for designing, incorporating this drive into her striking yet comfortably efficient designs, which she displays through her dream venture 'ATARA'.

Froyo Friday Girls


Trying to make Froyo Fridays a ritual now. Was so much fun hanging with my sister Nikita and Priya for delish loads of Froyo at Menchies in Koregaon Park, Pune. Thank you Priya for capturing so many candid moments of us. Nothing like a day out with the girls, get nails done, grab a froyo, click fun pictures and then hit a bar for some happy hour cocktails and groove to moonwalk beats. 
Viernes Perfecto!

Co-ordinated Rooftops




Berry lips, accent braids, iridescent makeup, crop tops, choker necklaces. I guess it's safe to say that in the cycle of Fashion 'what goes around, comes back around'.

ARTSIE VILLE - Jewelry House Feature




An inevitable dilemma that many of us face, while getting dressed, what jewellery to wear? After all, the right piece of jewellery brings the whole outfit and look together. Put a woman's outfit into perspective, each item of clothing or accessory helps piece together a 'Statement'. A statement that expresses one's individuality, one's creative authenticity, one's sense of fashion.

'Artsie Ville', two words, one mission, to bring forth a host of hand-crafted jewellery in a variety of unique and bold accents that echo a welcome respite of quirk and style.

I also wear them seperately, like the skirt with a graphic tee and sneakers or the top with denim shorts and heels. Wearing them together is so elegant though, perfect for a cocktail party or a night out.

Aztec Beach Vibes


Day well spent on the beach! So we visited Thailand this month and found this gem of a beach on the north of the island of Koh Phangan called Chaloklum. It has this very colorful vibe with flags and vibrant boats around. I wore this Aztec dress by Mariposa Love and this dress went so well with this background. Thailand is such a beautiful place with such warm people and delicious cuisine which made me fall in love with it a bit too much. I can't wait to go back there again!

WRAPSTAR - Gifting Solutions


Wrapstar is a one-stop destination for all your gifting needs. 

Since its inception in 2006, Wrapstar Inc. founded by the sister duo Roohi Agnihotri and Surbhi Mehtani, provides unique gift wrapping solutions and products for truly all your needs. They cover all: Festivals & Occasions, Weddings, Birth Announcements, Invitations, Corporate Gifting, Party Favours and even "Just-Like-That"! 
In a very short period of time Wrapstar has rapidly moved in, explored the gifting concept and come out with new ideas and executed in all segments of the gifting market. This duo's fascination of presents and the excitement associated with opening the wrapper and seeing what is inside, has certainly brought them a long way.

It's nice to know that the basic idea behind gifting has not changed in all these years, but some problems remain forever constant: 
What would be an ideal gift? 
How should it be delivered? 
How should it be packed? 

Gifting is a creative endeavour and putting together a perfect gift is a challenge. Whether it is a return gift at your child’s birthday bash, an expensive corporate gift, a wedding invitation, the perfect house warming gift or a good old fashioned envelop. Choosing a gift, packaging it artfully and delivering it with panache is something that the 'Wrapstar Sisters' take great pride in.

While the gifting/wrapping business looks simple from the outside it requires a lot of hard work, the ability to innovate and find solutions when the clock is ticking. Since there is no fixed template or automation process involved every gift is customized and hand-made. The little details really are important, and Wrapstar's innovative achievement lies in the fact that every single gift is specially made depending on the exact requirement of the client. In high profile gifting, paying attention to the minute details is essential not only for Roohi amd Surbhi but for the entire team. They have built an excellent team who can handle it all and have never been a disappointment even in the toughest situations.

Along with providing one of the most sought after wrapping solutions, Wrapstar also brings to you a unique assortment of chic & contemporary lifestyle products to bring style to your home which includes Wall Decor, Flower Vases, Serving Trays, Picture Frames, Scones & Candle Stands and lots more.
