ETHER - Design House Feature


Hey guys! Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. 
Today i am bringing to you the designs from an online designer store by Shivani Kapadia called 'Ether'. 

Shivani Kapadia is an engineer turned fashion designer who is the founder and designer of Ether. Her vision is to reach out to every woman to make them feel beautiful and confidant without pretense. 
She says "All of us aspire to be fashion icons but few actually wear what they believe in. I wanted Ether to help women dress where they find the luxury and comfort to express themselves. To be elegant and love themselves for who they are. I strongly believe that every woman has a voice, about her life, the way she dresses and the way she lives. But many hesitate to say it out loud. One of the best ways to voice that freedom she seldom gets is to dress herself in what she loves. Fashion then to every woman is her way of breaking traditions, being bold."

I had the pleasure to style and feel her garments and i must say i am impressed by the quality Ether offers. Each piece is beautifully crafted and hand embroidered to perfection. The designs are classic and ooze elegance. I feel these are the garments that will last you a long time and you would adore the sparkle in your closet.

The Pink Fur


Catching up on the big trend this season, the cozy fur coats. I am in love with this pink coat i got from She Inside for this winter season. The color is adorable and the quality is great for the price you pay. The coat is lightweight and is perfect for the Indian winters. I like to throw it on any outfit to make it look so chic and trendy. Today i wore it over a little black dress and thigh high boots. This pastel pink goes so brilliantly with an all black outfit and since i wear black mostly when i am in doubt, this coat completes the look perfectly. 
I love collaborating with She Inside because their customer service is impeccable and i can't miss the value for money. The delivery takes about 1-2 weeks and i don't need to pay any customs on delivery. 

Shot this outfit at the Evviva sky lounge at Courtyard Marriott with Abhishek Verma as the photographer and Priya Haridas coordinating the shoot. Evviva lounge is located on the roof the hotel and has a stunning view of the entire city. Perfect for a night out with your friends or special someone for some yummy drinks and dinner overlooking the city lights.

CHIC HOUSE - Designer House Feature


Today’s Designer House Feature is 'CHIC HOUSE'.
Chic House is a premium fashion online store which houses designs of India’s multiple designers. They host an array of designer wear, accessories and home decor products which can be shopped online from the comfort of your home. 

The enterprising duo, Krati Valecha and Saakshi Mirchandani are the founders of this online experience of multi designers under one virtual roof. India’s established and emerging young designers are now accessible to clientele across the country. CHIC HOUSE promises to charm those who love to have a slice of luxury in their everyday life.

CHIC HOUSE also provides customers the option to touch, feel and see the designs in person before they buy it online. I personally think it is a very useful option when it comes to shopping online and removes the doubts we have about fit and fabric quality. 

From designer wear brands like THREE, Mayank Anand & Shraddha Nigam and other design labels including Crazyheart, Pre-Ri, Karishma Rana, Urbane, Simone by Simran and several others, to a range of accessories from brands like Loupe, Marsala by Nisha Agarwal, Kichu, Malleka Gush. And it doesn’t stop there. CHIC HOUSE goes beyond our personal fashion needs to jazz up our living space with a line of home decor brands that include names like Rayden Design Studio and Team Embellish.

Other designers i loved on their website are Tussah (contemporary wear), Karishma Rana (couture wear) and Nestaah (ethnic jewellery). 

Today as a part of this feature, i got to style a few of their clothing and jewellery. I really liked their website navigation, customer service, delivery and quality of every product.

ETHNIC ROUTE - Design House Feature



I have always a been a fan of Ethnic Route, an online design house. It is a pleasure to showcase their designs yet again on my blog. They have some beautiful ethnic and western designs which they customise according to one's measurements. I had a very good experience ordering my outfits online as their stitching techniques are very good giving me the perfect fit. They offer wide variety of designs for the Choli which they make it perfectly to your measures. I am very happy with the design of the choli and how it fits me perfectly.

This lovely lahenga is from their in-house design called ETHNIQUE. I love the color combination and the simplicity of this lahenga, so elegant and pretty. Perfect to throw on your statement jewelry to compete the outfit. 





Jewelry : Jewel Couture


High low maxi dresses are so dreamy and elegant. The flow of this dress is lovely which gives it all the charm. I wore mine with a pair of two strap shiny heels and hair in romantic curls.

Winter is here and this black velvet zari border shawl/stole is perfect for any night out to keep warm in style. It can be worn over a simple little dress or your favorite ethnic wear which needs a bit of warmth for those chilly nights. Check out the three ways i wore mine, over a little black dress.

BEST OF 2015 - Memories and Outfits


Hey guys! Wish you all a very Happy New Year again. 2015 for me was just a crazy rollercoaster. I had the craziest time of my life for sure. From work to personal front, it was a ride. A ride i won't forget for the rest of my life.

I never usually disclose my personal matters to social media, like i don't share much of my family, or inside my home or my relationship issues. But this past year has taught me so much and brought along so much of change in me as an individual that i feel stronger and immensely grateful for everything and everyone in my life who have supported and loved me. 
Last to last year was the end to my ten year relationship with a man, who i still respect and care for. It was the toughest time of my life for sure. I was suddenly on my own (which was pretty scary for the first few months) but then i decided to go with my life long dream of starting my own fashion store and even started blogging full time. I realised i had a thirst for knowledge and craving for diving into the unknown. It was a process to evolve my engineer brain into a business woman's. I met a fabulous man on this path who helped me find myself internally and to have courage to face anything that came my way. Also my parents and sister, the most beautiful people inside out, always by my side in thick and thin. The love from these four angels gave me the courage to do what i am doing now, to smile and laugh the way i do now. 

So there were many new beginnings in 2015, so many new friends i made and so much amazing work came along. 
All i can say is, follow your excitement, follow your passion, follow your heart! It knows the way!
