    Color Splash

    What time is it? It’s summer time! ( Cue in High School Musical 2 song) Spring summer is not all about floral prints and de-cluttering the closet! Tie & Dye pattern has made a comeback this year. It first gained popularity in the 80’s Hippie style but judging by the runways, the tie & dye pattern feels more fresh. Proenza Schouler implemented it into denim whereas Prada applied it to mini dresses and skirts. As ELLE Magazine mentioned, “Wonky Couture” as one of the top trends of 2019, which is bubble sleeves, ruffles, volume dresses, and swirls of taffeta, even I tried implementing it into my daily wear. I paired…

    Living Coral #Pantone2019

    The Pantone Color pretty much sets the color trend and composition for the fashion industry. Pantone has described the living coral as an “animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” I have previously worked on 2017,2018 color of the year. You can check it out here and here. I really liked this year’s color. It perfectly sits between orange and pink which brightens up every ensemble. Makar Sankranti festival is around the corner, and the excitement of flying kites has died down in my family, but the festival delicacies continue in the kitchen and the chance to dress up. I…

    Effortlessly Chic #ChristmasOutfitIdea

    Where’s the party tonight? Sometimes one wants to dress up nice and look sophisticated, right?  Nothing screams more than well-fitted trousers and a structured dress.  So, I picked up the below ensemble on Shein website which is not my style at all. To be honest, before buying on Shein website check the reviews and the size chart. Whatever I have purchased until now had to be altered here and there. But, I can never stop buying from the website because of their insanely cute collections! Usually, the trousers are paired with tailored blazer to give a structured look. Here, I chose to pair it with a wrap dress to achieve…

    Waterfront Staycation with Ramada Alleppey

    After a fantastic experience at Fort Kochi, Meenakshi and I went to Alleppey which is known as Venice of the east. Ramada Alleppey is a stunning property facing the backwaters of Kerala, and the cherry on top is we were given the best rooms. About the property- Ramada Alleppey is just five years old and also the place where annual Nehru Trophy Boat Race is conducted. The property is about 2 hours away from Fort Kochi, and this hotel is the best option for people who like luxury mixed with nature. The moment you enter the premises oozes out uber luxury with attentive staff and facilities. There are 121 rooms…

    #SoMyTravels To Cochin

    Visiting “God’s own Country’ was always on my bucket list and thanks to Neemrana Hotels it has come true. If you haven’t checked out my previous post about Neemrana, then you can check it here. The bright blue sky with lush greens and large structured Portuguese buildings, I was welcomed to Fort Kochi. If you ignore the electric pole lines, then most of the buildings date back to the 17th century and give a certain primitive feel. We were unsure of the plans for the day, but our hotel manager sorted all out for us and also arranged a tuk-tuk service to drive along the place. The rickshaw is the…

    My Stay-cation At Tower House- Cochin

    I had the perfect weekend at the Tower House Neemrana Hotel. The Neemrana hotels are the ones who have restored the beauty and history of India in the form of their hotels and resorts.  And most importantly they offer the most fantastic experience while staying at their property. And, I was thrilled when they invited me for a staycation at one of their non-hotel hotels in Cochin. Meenakshi and I stayed in their 17th-century property which is owned by 150 years old Pierce Lesley and managed by Neemrana. The property has a sea facing view and the famous Chinese fish nets. About the property- The Tower House transports you to…

    I Recreated Looks Of Lara Jean Covey -To All The Boys I Have Loved Before.

    Noah Centineo is not only the reason why we girls are swooning over the movie. The lead actress dressing style is edgy, yet it has a girl next door vibe which resonates with a lot of girls, don’t you think?  Be it her combat boots, her favourite scrunchie or overalls, or the famous red pea coat I am totally fangirling over her outfits. The costume designer of the movie Rafaella Rabinovich said, she took inspiration from 90’s Vogue magazine and K-Pop. The designer blended feminine vintage pieces with an edgy touch well. So, I decided to recreate two outfits from the movie. Outfit 1- The party outfit. This outfit marks…

    Ethnically Diverse- Navratri Outfit #4

    The last post in the Navratri outfit series. Bathukamma is a ritual practised by the people of Telangana which is dedicated to goddess Parvati. The bathukamma is a stacked arrangement of flowers in concentric circles. Instead of flowers, my mother and I decided to prepare bathukamma using coloured papers and be little craftsy. Well, the end product wasn’t what we were expecting, but it wasn’t bad either. Lehenga is always appropriate for any functions or rituals. When it comes to Indian outfits, I have always loved designing them on my own.  I totally enjoy the process of buying fabrics, laces and jotting down ideas with my mother and on how…
