No basic chick

You really don’t look like a fashion blogger… I mean you don’t dress up like a fashion blogger.

Umm..what?

I mean you should really think about it before taking up fashion blogging seriously, you don’t dress like them!

This was a conversation with few fellow fashion bloggers some years back. Those words haunted me for years. Maybe it was one of the reasons why I took an off from fashion blogging for a long while.

Everything Was Fact But She In Fact Was A Fiction, A Mystery

Ankita Bardhan, Everything was fact but she in fact was a fiction, a mystery, Fact fiction

Ankita Bardhan, Everything was fact but she in fact was a fiction, a mystery

 

All the right words, all the right gestures

Were up on his sleeves

He’s a ladies man, wooed them effortlessly

A soft tap on his shoulder and there was she

He tried to woo her

But she said tell me about your friends & family

Stunned by her interest & reply

Within minutes he told her his story

Few days in, he took her to his mom

He was scared his mommy was going under surgery

Stunned by her reaction again

She was talking to his mom’s doctor about biopsy

Under harsh sunlight, it felt like cool shadow of tree

 

In a month he went like,

La dee la da da dum

Something about you is different

I want you, I think I love you

“But honey, you don’t even know me”

Again by her reply he was stunned

And they say,

She is the one who knocks the door

She is the one who breaks your walls

She is the one who vanishes

They say, she a beautiful fiction,

A mystery, that’s all about it

Sakshi K Relan Spring/Summer Collection’16 Preview

Hello lovelies!

How is summer treating you? I for one have made friends with air conditioner 😀 And if you’re following me instagram, you must be knowing I am pretty much stuck at home this summer, thanks to my knee injury. Anyhoo, recently I attended the spring/summer collection preview of Sakshi Relan, saying I was pretty impressed by her functional indo-western mix would be an understatement. Will leave you with the pictures to have a taste of her summer collection.

About Sakshi K Relan

The Brand ‘Sakshi K Relan’ by Sakshi Relan is one of the most promising entrants in the Indian Fashion Industry. Despite holding an MBA degree in HR & Marketing from the most prestigious Cardiff University, Sakshi chose to follow her passion and picked designing as a career option.

 

Having a very distinct, urban sense of styling, Sakshi uses basic colours like Beige, Blacks, White and Blue in her collection. With a knack to create high fashion in a chic avatar, the designer marries Haute Couture, rich fabrics with vivacious cuts and drapes, in a fun, edgy and one-of-a-kind manner. With an International, cutting-edge silhouette in mind, her outfits exude a global sensibility that enhances their appeal and have a dramatic appeal. Her collection has an interesting mix of western and indo western clothes and every piece has been hand-woven to perfection.

Grunge Valentine’s Day: Love Yourself First

“How come a pretty girl be single?”

‘Why is it a crime to be single?’
“No… Yeah, I guess. I mean I am sure there must be interested parties”
‘Hmm there are, but I am not looking for anyone’
“Single by choice haa? Wow, that’s such a waste of all the prettiness”
‘At least I am not wasting it by dating you’

If you’re single and rocking it like ain’t nobody’s business, I am sure you must have been asked this question many times. Why single? Why? Well, if you ask me, I find this question stupid. I mean I don’t go asking people why are they dating? Why in a relationship? How come trying to know someone requires details about their relationship status? This is beyond my understanding. If you’re wondering, no, this post isn’t anti-love or anti-Valentine’s Day. This post is for the ones who chose to be single, the ones who chose to love themselves, grow and work on themselves, the ones who are focusing on building their empire. Most importantly, the ones who are trying to know themselves better. This post is to tell them ‘Hey, you’re awesome! Keep doing your thing, you bada$$ human being!’

Loving yourself is so easy pesy, just say “I love me” 2-3 times a day and done! Right? Well as far as I have learnt, loving yourself is a constant struggle and one of the toughest task. It’s easy to hate yourself than love yourself cos’ no one knows your unadulterated thoughts, your demons, your fears better than you. No sugarcoat, no filter, just raw thoughts & feelings. And since you aren’t going to spend as much of your time with your partner, your family, your friends, as much you will spend with yourself. Learn to make friends with yourself first, love & embrace your demons, talk to yourself more, try knowing yourself better, believe in yourself and always, ALWAYS have your back!

Wills India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015: Highlights

Hello senoritas,

Now that chilled mornings have arrived, I have started missing bright summer mornings. And also, I miss the fashion week days, no matter how much I whine that it was so exhausting…but I do miss the excitement, the stress to create new looks every morning, the energy in fact the whole vibe of it! If you guys are following me on Instagram & Twitter, you must be knowing that I recently attended Wills India Fashion Week SS’15. Though it’s been a couple of weeks that WIFW over but y’all know me, I am always (well, not always but mostly) fashionably late :PHere is a pictorial tour & the snippets of my favorite shows:-

Raji of Indian Polish Maniac, Shweta of Glam n Gloss and I have done a collab post. The Theme is Summer & Beachy Look ^_^

There She Goes..Looking Like A Star ★★

There She Goes..Looking Like A Star ★★

I created a fun and simple outfit look for summer & beachy theme; Shweta who is very talented in make-up has done a coordinating FOTD and Raji,who is a nail art enthusiast did a NOTD. Both of the looks can be effortlessly achieved and that adds tremendously to their “cool” factor.

When You Look Me In The Eyes

When You Look Me In The Eyes

My perfect beach outfit would be a bikini top with a sheer cropped top and cute pink shorts or a wrap around…but whom am I kidding right?! o_0  It would take ages for women to roam freely in bikinis at Indian beaches!! :/ Hence, a romper is apt for such weekend getaways to the beach in summers 🙂

Sun-kissed Beach Tan

Coming to my outfit, I tried creating 3 looks with this lovely mint romper/playsuit. All I needed was a cool-hued aztec print scarf to make 3 different looks..easy pesy 🙂 I love scarves for their uhhh-mazing transforming abilities, it’s a wonder accessory I tell you ❤

Although Delhi has no beach but my straw hat and beige heels (doesn’t it look like jute straw too :D) totally got me in the vacation mood *u* I just wore a mint ear rings, a mint and yellow cuff co-ordinating with my scarf and my roaring tiger ring hihihi 😛 Got some bed-head curls and I was beach ready *wink wink*
