My Muse


His design is not only part of my Muses but a constant inspiration to me… Oh wait! I totally skipped the part of introducing his name first, sorry! I was talking about Rahul Mishra who was the winner of the Prestigious Woolmark prize and keeps on innovating the design process by incorporating traditional Indian techniques into modern outfits…

This Sketch is a part of his collection from PFW which I adore…

I am so AMUSED !

I just realized that I technically started posting all about my aspirational muse on Thursdays and then I decided why not call it THURSDAY MUSE, can’t agree more…

I have been watching the fashion scene for spring/summer 2015 with these lace up tops, lace-up dresses and lace-up sandals. This particular lace-up dress from Altuzarra caught my eye and made me imagine myself in the dress.Hmm wait wait, but I cannot imagine myself in the dress alone without a complete outfit right? so I have put together a complete look adding my muses together and here it is…

Ok, lets get to the word ;-)

Ferosh : Awe inspiring; flamboyant way of expressing fierce; Bold but appreciable;

usage: “Oh the dress she was wearing last night, “SHE WAS SO FEROSH ”

Peep into some Ferosh here:

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??

Good Afternoon Monday !

I actually intend to say Good Morning but it seems, the clock would not agree with me :-0 hmm ok, I am cool with that.

As you all know I am doing a collection of looks for the Inspiration – PRATIKA. I have been caught up with the Indian drapery – THE SAREE and I wanted to narrate my affair with the saree in the best possible way, I call it  `a la mode saree gown. And here is an illustration for the look.

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.

IMG_2503 copy

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…
