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.

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!

Get Your Desi Soul On

Hiya everyone!! Finally passing the autumns phase winters have arrived and I am loving it… of course with the lazing around 😛 How is your winter going on?

I wanted to do a post on my winters attire but then I saw I had a post pending in my draft >>>yes I have been very lazy<<< I wore this look on Diwali morning when I went for a little mall hopping and shopping 😀 Keeping the look ethnic..I wanted to add a something edgy, hence the bold bindi. Personally I feel bindi adds a doze of drama to a plane attire. I sometimes wear tiny bindi with casuals too…and they totally transform the look. Remember small things can make or break the look 🙂

Now about the my coral skirt, if you are following me on Facebook…you must be knowing I am digging big for anything in coral shade *_* I was searching for a simple ethnic skirt, not having heavy chamak-dhamak, glitters and stones work but is bright enough to be worn in Diwali >>>yes I am that particular<<< But I didn’t find anything fitting my taste so I with my best friend stitched a skirt instead. I am super glad we did this ^_^ My skirt is bright coraly in shade with a simple brocade (gota) stitched to it.

Since I wanted a subtle look, I wore a black tee and my fav – blue kolhapuri chappals. Don’t these kolhapuris add vibrancy to the look 🙂 I lightly patted a pretty wine eyeshadow from Inglot. Wine hue adds depth to the eyes. I added a bronze neckpiece, coral lip color and bindi to finish off the look.

Just love the design of this bindi…looks bold!

I would like to introduce you all to my very patient best friend Ankit, without whom this fashion blog would have been incomplete. He only shoots all the pictures for my blog, 🙂 And yes he got this coral skirt stitched in his garment factory :D!

Ok Ok my photography is not that bad 😀

Attire :-
Black Tee – Zara
Coral Skirt – Designed By Yours Truly
The Infamous Owl Neckpiece – G.K.
Blue Kolhapuris – Mumbai

See how bright and colorful mall decorations look!

Makeup :-
On My Eyes – Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (Black)
Inglot Pearl 452 (Wine Hue)
On My Lips – Maybelline Coral Lusture
