MY MUSE

HEY THERE CHARMING LADIES :-)

As a global fashion buff, frequently inspired by many of the international designers, I also tend to gravitate towards my Indian roots with a current muse towards two of my favorite designers Rahul Mishra and Archana Rao. They both have a common approach wherein, they experiment a lot, the former with his innovative weaving techniques and the latter by incorporating a vintage feel to the contemporary design.

Rahul Mishra is also the winner of the prestigious Woolmark prize for the year 2013/14 and is well known for his contribution towards Indian hand-looms. On the other hand, Archana Rao, a graduate from Parsons, New York, won the Vogue fashion fund, India for the year 2013 with her capsule collection inspired by vintage charm.

I would love to team up this Gingham saree with a white crop top from Alice + Olivia and this wonderful white Jamdani coat by Rahul Mishra. To conclude the look, I am going to wave this cage sling bag by Whiting & Davis on to my shoulder, adorn my wrist with a crystal bracelet from Eddie Borgo and I am good to go for a day wedding or a brunch party or a garden party… what do you think ladies??

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.

Chuck-in; Chuck-out; WISHLISTED; BUY; DONT BUY;

Hello there! Firstly I am so sorry and apologize about me not posting anything for so long :( forgive me for that !  will you?

OK now, we are friends right?

wondering the way I have titled the post? hmm no, I am not out of my mind yet ;-/

MY SHOPPING TRAILS THEY ARE :-) precisely, the way I do my shopping. I am not that kind who gets into a store the moment they put a big SALE sign and i am not an impulsive or a compulsive buyer. I am very particular about what i want and do some research before buying, I mostly check the trends online, pin them first if possible check physically if its available in the nearest store (not all the time but when i am doubtful whether the particular style suits me or not) and then decide what has to be bought and what has to be chucked and what has to be wish-listed, well it also depends on the amount of money I want to spend on shopping at that point of time. YEAH YEAH  it might seem little boring but I am like that, I can’t just buy everything with which i might regret later or overburden my closet. End of the day I should feel confident and happy without any regrets.

Mostly I am hauled to the upcoming designers or designers who bear the price points into consideration while creating them, of which my favorite is Self-Portrait, Kate Spade, Sam Edelman, Warehouse, Zimmerman…oh the list goes on. I also go with Zara or H&M for some good options. Of-course I do love owning a Valentino, Chanel, Christian Louboutin or a Fendi (for which I save and invest on them).

thisishow

This is how I figure out what I buy, if you see I am quiet evidently got attracted to stripes and I have pinned two such styles one of which is a shirt dress from TOPSHOP for 50€ and the other, an oversized shirt from H&M for 20€, having two similar styles is not soo me, even though they differ a little, so I have gone ahead with H&M shirt also considering that I am already buying a eyelet shirt dress from SELF PORTRAIT for 270£.

DO SHARE YOUR SHOPPING TRAILS WITH ME, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT OR WRITE TO ME @ justcheckedinblog@gmail.com…
