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.

#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.

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.

Okay, maybe only the colour is Sonam inspired. Cause, real life problems is not a thing for her. But, wearing a gown like dress in a colour like this is a first time for me. And I am thrilled to have invested in it!

#MaaKaWardrobe Revisiting the classic saree!

From school and college farewells to debutante-like nights with the relatives or formal work events. If there is one thing that saves the day it has to be you mother’s saree. A dozen ways to drape it, so many types and forms, she has gone the whole 9 yards to fill her wardrobe with amazing pieces that you would kill to own.

Even if you are not the saree type, admit it that you have always admired mom in her gorgeous timeless sarees and how each of her old outfits have their own history. With the saree I have worn below, I felt like I was living mumma’s newlywed phase. More than 25 years old this is one of the first ever Satyapaul sarees of the family.

The modern newspaper print and the light flowy styling made it way ahead of its time and the perfect gift from Dad to Mom. #Pyaar It’s amazing how well it has been wrapped and covered and maintained till date. Bonus: It made me look like a spitting image of Mom. Check it out.

There is a lot of hype around the humble saree, it has an honest potential to get you ready and best looking for all kinds of events. With Sonam Kapoor’s wacky drapes, you could even wear it to brunch! Don’t hesitate trust in your #maakawardrobe and give one a chance.

P.S: No matter what you do, do not tear/burn/spill over your Mom’s saree.

Summer Weddings: Here’s your something blue.

Something old, Something new, something borrowed and something blue!

Even though this was said as the good luck essentials a bride must carry on her D-day, what’s stopping from carrying the luck around on every single day. Umm, not meaning to offend any tradition here, but it’s so cute and the quote plays on my head randomly. Hence the following.

IMG_0430

If you haven’t done straight cut long kurtas yet, you are running over a few years late on the trend. Got this simple fabric from a local market and made an interesting neckline which was enough to dress it up.

IMG_0436 IMG_0445

While kurtas like these will look great with pallazzos, the good old leggings didn’t disappoint me here either.

IMG_0447

Paired with multi coloured kolhapuris from Abba, my look was completed with a traditional jhumka that I picked from a recent trip to Delhi.

IMG_0450

An outfit like this fits well on smaller wedding functions like roka, engagements or just about anywhere you think you can pull this off. A little late into the season I still think investing in a pretty shade of blue with a long kurtacan be work anytime of the year.

All White, So bright. #SummerWeddings #MaaKaWardrobe

Still looking to add to your wedding wear collection? You absolutely must invest in an all white piece.

Be it an Anarkali, a pretty gown, a straight kurta or a lehenga. The possibilities to style an all white outfit are unimaginable. Here you will see my first time experimenting with an asymmetric Anarkali. The wow-factor remains the fact that it is all white and I can style it completely differently just by alternating add-ons.

Dupattas, earrings, makeup, footwear and other accessories are the real style quotient sometimes, hence details are everything. Pay close attention 😛

LMPL4855A bright stole/ dupatta like this one ended up being the game changer of my whole look. To balance that pop of colour I put on my gorgeous pink earrings by Tarksya, and added my multi-colour kolhapuri from Abba Shoes.

LMPL4856

Best part about creating the kurta was the fact that I had an old semi georgette saree lying around in the house until my designer from Ginni’s couture creations came up with this. We stuck to classic detailing with pearls and a hint of gold to go with the old saree border. Always believe in the power of #MaaKaWardrobe

LMPL4871

I feel so incomplete without my Mumma’s bindi, each time I wear Indian.

LMPL4894

Adding an entire layer of georgette over the old saree made the outfit more elegant and royal! Keeping royal in mind, I had to try on a look which stuck to ultimate classics and no bright added tones.

LMPL4912

Major Sonam Kapoor vibes were being felt with the styling of this look, also made me quite proud of myself.

If you are one of those who think white will enlarge your body shape or anything on the lines, kindly drop that silly idea and try this. Also, i really think i can dye this into a completely different shade someday and flaunt it all over again!

LMPL4927

Notice how the draping of the dupatta can also impact your look so greatly.

Summer Weddings quick fix: Not so mehenga, lehenga. #OnlineShoppingFTW

“Main shaadi karungi toh Kareena Kapoor wala lehenga pehen kar karungi, warna dulhe ko tata bye bye kardo!” Alia Bhatt spoke my heart out, and not just mine thousands more. But wait, Brides these days are more bridezilla than quiet and nervous. So let’s shift focus on those who have a serious pressure of looking their best as well as getting all the Bridezilla tantrums in order. The Bridesmaids.

As we continued researching and putting together the top looks for upcoming summer weddings, we found the perfect outfit. The Lehenga. The wedding day, the reception nights, the sangeet performance, the mehndi night, the lehenga in its variants can fit in beautifully on any of these events. The lehenga choli is the only kind of outfit which can be played up or down as per event, or who’s wedding you are attending. Here are a few tips to sort your lehenga choice out:

  1. The colour: Bright blues, pinks, reds and greens will do well as day colours. Go earthy, metallic or powder pastels when picking one for the night.
  2. The embellishment: Work/ embroidery/ sequin/ stones help make your outfit grand or casual. Depending on who’s wedding you are attending, the time of the event and your budget the embellishment must be decided.
  3. The Fabric: Net, Georgette, Silk and anything flowy will give your garment the fall it needs. Pick the fabric as per your body type as well as how heavy would you like it to be. Most of these fabrics can be worn day  or night.
  4. Print: Summers will be too sad without florals, instead of an all out floral print, pick one like in the pictures below. Geometric prints are also classy and give you an edge above most common outfits at the wedding.

LMPL1273_IJFR

LMPL1275_IJFR

Ideal for a summer wedding, this lehenga guarantees to make me the most head-turning bridesmaid ever! Don’t you agree?

 

LMPL1285_IJFR

Look for tiny interesting elements like printed fabric on the edges of the dupatta, gold thread work on the lehenga, or a bold choli like this one.

 

LMPL1290_IJFR

 

 

LMPL1284_IJFRMake sure the length of your garment is apt for your body, touching the floor is the right one for garments like these.

The top 3 Desi Looks you need to add to your wardrobe, If you haven’t already.

You can do denims, skirts and dresses but nothing slays like an authentic Indian/ traditional look. Whether you’re the only one going design in college or adapting these into a routine family gathering, these are the 3 must have looks you need to try asap!

Kurta- Pallazzos

If you haven’t guessed it yet, I am obsessed with palazzo pants, they make me look taller and give me a feeling of being the most elegantly dressed when in a crowd! The trend started early 2015 and looks like it’s here to stay. Mix and match with interesting prints and colours to create different looks. They are so comfortable and effortlessly stylishly you might consider ditching all other forms of bottoms completely!

Patiala Salwar:

Nothing says casual desi like patiala suits, they define easy, functional style to me. Especially after Tanu weds Manu, I see myself turning to a patiala suit more often than not these days.

Jugni Tip: You need to find the right tailor to give you a real patiala salwar, it’s not as easy as it looks to have those perfect pleats in a hot fit, you might have to struggle with a few trials. But I suggest don’t settle till you feel full punjabi kuddie. Also, preferably get one from the north! I got this beautiful fabric from Ahmedabad for as less as INR 90 per metre and the short fitted kurta made me feel like Alia Bhatt from Humpty Sharma! If you don’t have this set in your wardrobe you are certainly missing out on a classic.

Kurti- Leggings

This is a cheat salwar kameez, or a chudidar kurta’s modernised version. It’s available everywhere you go and is so easy to carry. All the big brands have made multiple styles of kurtas ready to buy for us. From the A-lines, to the straight fits, the asymmetrical to a simple slit one like this they can all add interesting elements in your wardrobe. The gungroo on this kurta made me buy it without a second thought, also, the chudidar sleeves are so pretty nai?

Jugni Tip: Since leggings are skin tight, the length of the kurta should be below knee length or it can look weird, also colours like beige or skin tone for a legging will make it look like you aren’t wearing any, so be careful!

Styled these with an outfit so pink that you’ll be the source of sunshine in any party if you wear this. Ideal for a wedding party or even your own event, I got a custom made pink tie & dye/ lehriya fabric stitched into a breathtakingly beautiful floor length dress. Adding a string of diamonds to the highlight the one-shoulder cut is my favourite thing about the outfit. So next time you go fabric shopping, pick an Indian print and convert it into something like this. Ideal fusion and so pretty. What say?
