Why you “can” avoid these two colours this Valentines Day?

Valentines day is around the corner and I am sure, you are all feeling punchy and dazed in deciding THE OUTFIT for the day. Not to worry! we are here help you narrow down that perfect piece. Well, the colours that snap in your mind for the love season are pink and red which you have been flaunting for every Valentines Day till now. Let us just  avoid these   two colours for a change. Yes! thats right, we are exactly asking you to dump the two colours red and pink this V-Day. No! we are not crazy and we are saying that loud.

Instead, go for the spring hues or the pieces belonging to the family of whites or blacks. We have pooled in some of our editor approved looks for you.

Go for a lacy dress in black or white, team it up with statement jacket or a leatherjacket.

We are so obsessed with this Ruffles trend which made its way into 2017 as well !

The Ruffles trend has ruled nearly half of 2016 and continues winning more hearts in 2017. The trend  is so feminine and classy that it made its way into many fashion houses all over the world.  Every  street style star’s wardrobe has one such key piece such as a ruffled top, printed ruffle dress or even a ruffled hem denim (remember, Madewell denims)

Here is some inspiration from street style for you!

We got too much into the trend and we started asking “Can we get some Ruffles please !”

Now its time for you to comment!

What we loved on the Day1 of Lakme Fashion Week Summer / Resort 2017 ?

While Monisha Jaising’s show on the international cruise Costa – neo – Classica was a curtain riser for the Lakme fashion week Summer/Resort 2017 with bold in gold statement outfits, to sequin clad sexy ensembles and not to forget those chic draped outfits in bright hues, the Gen Next’s young designer’s breezy and wearable collection in subdued hues made in natural weaves got us into the mood of summer which was further enhanced by our well known designers like Ka Sha, Urvashi Kaur and Eka.

Then comes the Duo Dev R Nil with an out of the world exhibit named “The valley of missing flowers” which lived true to its theme. The closing show for the day by Amit Aggarwal was totally at a different level. We particularly loved the jackets and skirts with up-cycled patola fabric.

Yes, we definitely present you with some snapshots to feed your soul, so that you decide on which ones to buy for the coming seasons…

B B and B TRIPLE B’s – Birthday with Boyfriend shirt and Bucketbag

I like feminine dressing but most of the time I am all about MIX IT UP masculine fits with a touch of femininity which helps you breakdown the TRIPLE B’s I am talking about.

It was my Birthday yesterday and I was happy to catch up with a great dose of Sunshine along with my Husband for Breakfast. I was in a mood for lazy and an absolute casual day, so I pulled out my black skinny jeans teamed them up with a striped boyfriend shirt, a very light dewy grey trench coat and a pair of sneakers from New Balance. For the femininity, I opted for a not so camel color bucket bag with gold and pastel pink details from Warehouse.

Can I steal your eyeballs for a while? Please !!!

Hey there! How are you?

Well the title again?? I MEAN IT (on request only) ;-)

Here I am going to share with you a design inspiration created by me  “PRATIKA” . PRATIKA is a Sanskrit word meaning SYMBOL. I was inspired by the symbols Lotus, Peacock, Hastha (the palm) and Mandala which depict different meanings according to different cultures. I got so inspired by them that, at times, I stare at them with wide imagination of colors I can add, kinds of fabric medium I can use, different textures I can make with and the list goes on……

symbolsofindia

I made couple of fashion graphic illustrations out of which I offer two of em’as a visual gift for your stolen eyeballs by me. (again on request only hehehe)

Hope its worth stealing your eyeballs for PRATIKA :)
