Laughing in the Purple Rain

With the onset of monsoon, it has been challenging for me to make a wardrobe change! It’s time to let go of all those summer dresses, flowy skirts and tank tops and somehow, I feel it all gets masked behind a giant umbrella or a pesky raincoat! But that doesn’t stop me from incorporating the summer colours into monsoon! I totally love that when it’s pouring outside I have to slip into my favourite super-comfy hoodies and pyjamas while sipping on coffee! J Woot woot.  But there are times when you have to venture out on a dull day and only a bright colourful outfit can cheer you up!

Top, Sunglasses, Shoes- Hill Road, Bandra, Jeans- Forever 21, Bracelet- Gifted, Beauty Products- Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Heftiest Hibiscus, Rimmel’s I Love Lasting finish- Apricot Punch,  Maybelline Colossal Kajal Coloured Kohl in Turquoise.

This adorable tie-dyed spaghetti strapped tank in bright hues of pink and orange is perfect for a rainy day! (pun intended) A pair navy boyfriend jeans is stylish and also the perfect length if you are spending a long day travelling. I love the purple plastic studded flats! They are super comfy for a typical rainy day sandal. A dainty stone bracelet to maintain the colourful nature of the attire and a cool pair of reflective mirrors completes this look! Whats’s not to love? Downplay your make-up, keeping the focus only on your eyes using the Maybelline Colossal Kohl in Turquoise and a tinted lip balm.

Leave in your comments and let me know what you think about this look.J

Traditionally Bound- Part 2

There’s sure an in-depth growing fondness for traditional attire. I have been grasping a good taste of the same. Initially, I did try to play safe but lately I have been trying to play with the colours, materials and works. Having said that, checkout the contrast representation of the same colour- PINK And no! I’m not a feminist gang supporter (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) And this was definitely not an intention, but I only realised it during the picture edits! Hehe  

The first set of pictures is from a friend’s engagement party. This with silver and neon pink Anarkali gave the appropriate pop of colour that the occasion needed. The second set is of a two toned net and georgette sari in pink and cream with sequined border and blue velvet blouse. It was a good occasion for it was the installation ceremony of my father into Presidency for his Rotary Club. Sorry for the low quality camera prints. I was expecting some good prints from the professional camera in the second half but It was not “blog-worthy.” Will be better in future until struck by a lightening of laziness!! :P

Family photo taken after the ceremony.

Anarkali- designed and custom made, sari- CraftsVilla

I have a coupled of really cool stuff lined up. Will unfold em all soon. *shriek of excitement*         
  Till then balle balle’ and shaava shaava’ Woot woot.. Brruuaahh J

Part 1 - Traditionally Bound

I have decided to do a two-part series of traditional wear that I have donned in the past months till present. And of course, as I had mentioned earlier, here are the pictures of the wedding. Do not forget to mention how beautiful the bride is or else my head will be on the chopping block! And you will also notice me slaving away which now, looking back I can’t really complain about because it all turned out to be beautiful!

Part-1, here it goes...

Wedding gown, Shoes, Tiara & Anarkali are from local boutiques in Mumbai made to custom fit, bride’s sari- gifted, my sari- FnU.
