My own Elsa’s Gown. #MonsoonWeddingInspiration

While I miss my summer wardrobe, and dream of cosy winters already. I was having trouble creating a fashion board for the ongoing season. You can swiftly move to culottes and skinny fit ankle length denim when it starts pouring, the struggle is occasional wear in the monsoon!

The obvious choice was moving into blues, greens & aqua on the colour wheel, and then the biggest inspiration came up! Elsa, from Frozen. The gorgeous blue gown, those airy sleeves and that pretty drape, what part of it don’t we like? In my latest collaboration with Pune’s leading designer Seema Singh, I got a chance to pick an outfit that inspired the Elsa within me.

It’s beautiful cut & drapery made me love it, at first sight, also the shade blue made me so happy, see the images and you’ll feel it too. In a quick chat with the designer herself, she said Monsoon fashion can’t be restricted to blues, greens and monsoon-y colours, at weddings and occasions people continue to wear a bright pop of colours to contrast the rather gloomy weather. However, you can avoid absolute pastels, whites and greys!

Have a look at the outfit below, tell me if you’d wear something like this to your next party! Till then, Be Jugni!

#BringTheKurtaBack – Styling your favourite kurtas in simple new ways.

Remember how there was this whole phase where kurtas were only sported by the journalist-artists-NGO volunteers, or at least people judged those to be in this profession.  Then came a phase when TV serials brought the Anarkali with leggings trend. Then came the never ending straight kurtas with palazzos. Somewhere in this race of trends, the basic Lucknowi kurta was amiss.

When I was 6yrs old, my mum would dress me up in pretty pastels Lucknowi kurtas with matching bindis. It was adored by all of us, she wore similar kurtas too and we gave Mom & Daughter goals to everyone! My association with XOX fashions gave me a chance to relive those fun style days all over again, this time trying different tips and tricks!

The Classic:

If you are not digging the palazzo trend, bring out your Patiala salwar. Get a basic white/ offwhite intricately embroidered Cotton kurta, while using a bright dupatta to complete the full ethnic look.

Also, do you have a full ghungroo jooti yet? it’s everything I needed to finish this style.

 

Taking cues from Alizeh in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, the following looks I am thrilled to share with you!

The Badass:

Doing the old school kurta legging is too basic for you? Go badass with a smart jacket leather (only if the weather permits) or any other with skinny fit denims & solid bellys.

Top it off with reflectors and you’re good to go!

The Everyday-Cool:

Go back to college with this look, your favourite old pair of jeans and sneakers will keep you on your toes and ready to do all your chores with ease. Add cat eye glasses and a big tote bag for the final chic elements in your style game.

Golden Girl, here is your go-to dress for this New Year’s Eve!

From Veronica to the girl in the fairness cream ad. This Gold sequin number was everywhere I looked and I couldn’t wait to own one. Once upon a time, the thought of shiny gold attire called to mind Las Vegas party girls. However, thanks to an especially strong showing on Fall 2016 runways, metallics—specifically gold—are poised to be a seasonal standout. The trend report was further confirmed with all the divas in B-town gracing Manish Malhotra’s birthday bash all dressed in gold!

This look was ideally inspired by Veronica DP’s character in Cocktail, I have had my eyes set on her beautiful gold sequin dress ever since. It can easily make you the queen in the crowd this NYE! Ideally for long party nights or fancy dinner outings. Exactly like Deepika in the movie, the dress boosted my confidence and for some reason made me feel like a total badass. Which is what you should be going for in this ongoing party season!

It’s time you invest in a sequinned outfit and be the Golden Girl you were always meant to be!

Shine on, be Jugni!

Too many Diwali parties, too little time? Put together an easy look!

The festivities have begun, and this madness will continue till, end of the year!

Weddings, birthday parties, events, gatherings, even house parties; somehow they all seem to peak come Diwali. Considering you have to go to all these places and have barely any time to put together looks for each of them, here are some handy tips!

  1. Invest in statement accessories. Be it grand earrings, a huge vintage neckpiece, a blingy clutch, headgear, or a funky handcuff. Recently I tried on hair extensions they were not so bad either.
  2. Layering is a game changer. Long jackets, brocade shrugs, sleeveless embroidered waistcoats etc. the options are plenty. Invest in one of these and play around with basics to create different looks.
  3. Great shoes: A nude staple goes a long way, but so does a classic gold piece. Invest a classy metallic bomb and rock them with Indian and other dresses while clubbing or at your next card party.

In the look below, I have simply teamed an embellished jacket over a black tube and black pants, see how it comes out enough to make me any kind of occasion-ready.

One Kurta Three Ways. Hacks for a serial outfit repeater. #StyleGameStrong

 

I have always sorta-kinda-been in denial about being a fashion blogger. In my head, these superstar girls I follow are true fashion bloggers, not me. Like I toh barely even get there. Until ta-da this post! So easy, you absolutely have to try it!

Merging the trends of maxi tops and fusion kurtas, my designer created this beautiful classic white kurta for me. The see through georgette and the sexy sleeves makes the bottom pop, with almost any kind of pairing. Be it palazzos, Patiala salwar, slim fit pants or even a skirt or lehenga. Wear it with a printed salwar to the next Ganpati pooja you attend, or pair it with your hot fit denims and sky high heels to impress you girls on your next brunch outing. Have a look at the images below and you’ll be surprised at how a simple investment can go a long long repeatable way.

Cape it out! #TrendSpotting in my super late travel post! #JugniChaliPondicherry

While we struggled to complete all the places on our to-do list, you know these bloggers they always squeeze in time for a quick shoot! Have a look at a fun recreated version of Alia Bhatt’s Buddhu sa Mann look. Hope you like it as much as I did sporting it.

I was also supremely skeptical about sporting these shorts, never before length this is. But I did realise I was my biggest critic and no one out there gave me a look, it was all in my mind. The cape does help cover up problem areas in an attire like this and adds much-needed confidence boost with the obvious splash of colour.

#TrendSpotting Wedding Jewellery inspiration for the Winter Bride.

While hunting for an ideal spot to shoot the following look, my search finally ended at Zora, A Modern Indian Kitchen opened recently at Ishanya Mall, Pune. The interiors and the overall ambience is so classy I was thrilled to conduct a few shoots there for the blog. The digital gramophone, the vertical garden walls, the high bar, and the beautiful lights made my team’s stress levels go down as everything was already there!

Bridal Jewellery trends do stick to making statements while being classy and re-usable. Rathod Jewellers gave us the ultimate upgrade in the jewellery scene for the Winter Bride.

This beautiful layered set is a mesmerising combination of Polki, Gold, Pearls and Rubies. Paired with a maangtika and a contemporary diamond bracelet to go with it, I felt like a bride already.

These amazing pieces on me made me look like a dream amalgamation of Jodhabai & Mastani. Don’t you agree? If you are researching for your upcoming wedding, keep your eyes open to such Polki-Pearl-Rose Cut Diamond combinations, as it is rare and oh-so-beautiful. If you are a raging bridesmaid and has a few weddings to attend this season, investing in a pair of stunning danglers or maangtikka like this will have you sorted!

I also got my hands on this elegant outfit from Sonal Thakore, it’s pure white raw silk kurta with a very khadi-ish jacket, as much as I loved the jewellery and the whole done up look, let me tell you that the outfit in itself is an absolute stunner. I can’t wait to wear it out! While choosing outfits for weddings and gatherings we do tend to get lost in the array of happy hues, investing in a white wonder will be a good shift for all of us! Try it.

Ode-To-Saheli. This Friendships Day, it’s all about twinning with your BFF.

You know how we girls get about having the same top, or the same dress as anyone else. Literally, if a girl will walk past me on the road wearing the same dress as I own, I am instantly adding a mental note to go and burn the dress from my wardrobe and never wear it again. Wait, please tell me I am not the only one who does this.

I’m just going to assume that we all do get a little panic-y when we see others picking up similar stuff from racks to the trial rooms. I have even seen people dropping the outfits at the billing line cause someone else picked it. In frenemies too,oh-it-is the ultimate revenge to buy something just like hers and wear it before her. But, the whole scene is a 180 degree shift when it comes to my bestie.

My BFF is like a sister from another mister, so when I go shopping, I un-hesitantly pick two of a kind. And yes, sometimes we try and wear it separately but most days we wear it on the same day same time and totally slay with our twinning! We take on the risk of looking like band-walahs, but the attention and the cute ass pictures at the end of each twinning day are totally worth it. Have a look at my Ode-To-Saheli

Because we need to be on first name basis with bollywood A listers, an ode to fortnightly catching up on cosmos and filmfares and more.IMG_9943

Because we need to strike lame poses and cute-sy locations. An ode to changing bbm display pictures every 2 hours.

IMG_9958

Because we need to watch Rakhi Sawant videos and also memorise newest item songs so we can sing them to each other. An ode to crappy lyrics and amazing memories.

IMG_9966

Because we need to gulp down gallons of coffee to bitch about the world around us. An ode to looking fabulous while battling our own inner demons.IMG_9982

Because we all need our BFF to get through life one day at a time. This friendships day, write an ode to your saheli and solemnly swear to continue being absolutely unadulterated bad asses for the next 82 years.

One dress four ways. Easy tips for effortless style!

It’s a horrible thing we have started doing, this whole Instagramming and snap chatting OOTD pictures. It adds layers of doubt in the decision to wear an outfit again!

If it has a picture taken and uploaded somewhere, I tend to let the picture do it’s social media time and more before even considering wearing it again, and when I do, it must be with a completely different audience.

Stress.

In all that self-created drama, let’s look at wearing a simple maxi dress repeatedly and stylishly! If you have a plain dress you know you can do oh-so-much with it, but here is a dress I love and the print is quite unique which not only makes it amazing but also makes it so difficult to repeat!

Layering is everything:

No rocket science there, throwing on a shrug or a jacket you know will change the look drastically. These days girls are wearing t-shirts over maxi dresses and using the dress as skirts, go figure! And, I was hesitating to put on a sweatshirt over my dress even while freezing. Hmm. Jugni issues. Layering makes styling an outfit easy, play with lengths, fabrics, styles too.

IMG_3019 IMG_3022

Added a simple cotton shirt and tied it up at the waist, very art-class look feels nai?

IMG_3023-Edit

The big messy hair is all thanks to our ever so unpredictable monsoon weather. yes, I’m kind of Monica Geller-ish with my hair when it gets humid. IMG_3032-Edit

Keeping the accessories same, I tried a dress on dress. Denim over a cotton maxi might sound off but actually looked pretty cool. It not only changed the look of my maxi but also allowed me to wear my denim dress again. See the denim dress post here.

How about a semi-formal jacket? Spunk up your maxi dress look with a full close button up or zip up jacket and change your look completely!

IMG_3052

IMG_3055-Edit

IMG_3062

Jewellery is everything! While trying to establish a particular look, the accessories you pair together really adds up to your look. I tried two different themes with dull gold and oxidised silver too. Keeping in mind the print of the maxi dress with those little coins can be turned into something ethnic, I liked how it added up. Do you?

Sunshine Girl: Should you invest in a bold coloured long dress? #HellYes

Whoever said we need to stick to basic colours for flowy dresses was completely wrong. Highly inspired from Sonam Kapoor’s NYE dress is my boat neck yellow wonder.

Although I haven’t worn it out yet, I’m hoping to inaugurate this one soon enough. In my head, I am IIFA green carpet ready, for a swanky brand launch, or even a bloggers event; obviously for family events and weddings too.

The bold statement that you will make by sporting a colour like this exudes confidence, poise and style like no one else around you. Don’t hesitate carrying this outfit in the day or night, all that matters is how you carry yourself. Believe and shine on firefly.
