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.

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

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

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.

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!

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

Don’t doubt yourself when putting on some extra blush. Afternoon events will only enhance the face further with just enough dosage of Pink! <3

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!

Complete your desi wardrobe by adding Kolhapuri Chappals and mojri or jooties. Accessorise with bangles, jhumkis, chand balis and a Bindi. I don’t leave home without one. Are you a desi girl? tell us in comments below your favourite looks, and share this with your desi look fan bff!

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?

I couldn’t take off the sunglasses as they add such an interesting Tanu-effect to the look. Very #swaggy don’t you think? Also, in day functions the pictures look way more awesome with cheap reflector aviators. Try kariye!Ishanya_Mall 086

Switching the look around, with a change in the jewellery again by Beads & Threads. The emerald green added a much-needed relief from the burst of pink in the outfit. The two fingers one ring concept is super trending currently and these crude stones worked brilliantly too!

Love & Life

Feels and Chills.

Sometimes a simple text can give you goosebumps, a long overdue apology, an unexpected “I really love you” message, or one which describes thoughts, that seem stolen from your own head. The goosebumps are real.d6921f10b25de2103860ddc0919c2345

Sometimes a mundane moment can make you feel absolutely blissed out. When you are lying in bed, wondering how can everything feel this perfect. Like what did I ever do so right to deserve this. When you order in room service, and eat a hearty breakfast in crisp white bathrobes, by the pool in the winter sunshine. The bliss is real.Four-Seasons-Hotel-Singapore_CouplesFloor

Sometimes, the current you feel from another person is not static, it is a legit spark you feel in every cell within your body that screams out to tell you something big. Like, ‘this is it’. A peck on the cheek, especially when you are blushing like crazy, a peck so intense on your tiny little dimple. A deep kiss on his shoulder, taking in all that magical perfume. Not turning on, but just enough to make you dizzy. The electricity is real.

hug-love

When Jai said it to Meera, “yeh tum wali feeling”, “aadat”. When Ranveer and Tia hugged for the first time, and when Armaan and Riddhima confessed their love. When he finally held me and pressed his lips against my forehead, and when I was too shy to look up, he kissed my head again with the same intensity. That Imtiaz Ali level romance is ‘Feels and Chills’ And that moment when it hits you, when you realise that is ‘the kick’ you have been waiting for, when you know you found the purpose of your life, to keep someone at peace, happy, making their heart beat faster and slower at the same time.

Does it happen to you, when you hold hands in the car? Or when you hug for more than ten seconds and don’t want to let go? Does it happen to you that when you experience these feels and chills, you know that your soul is still there at that place,in that moment and your bodies have moved away? Does it give you sleepless nights, thinking of what could have been, or would we ever be better than this?

Feels and chills are real. Those that give us, defining moments. Those rare countable on your fingertips moments, which make your heart take over everything else. That moment in a concert when you just let it all go and jump to a 128bpm song, that moment when you down your third LIT in a crowded club and truly let your hair down. That moment, when you know, you and him will never be just friends again. That moment, that changes a tiny bit inside you forever. A moment that will never be undone, cause you won’t let it fade away from your memory.

I wish all of you, more feels and chills and life-defining moments. I wish that ecstatic microsecond that you once felt, comes alive in every sense and never ever let you forget how majestic you are. How miraculous your relationships are. How magical this life is.

And you silly, you are Magic. You are Jugni.

Wanderlust Calling

Working weekdays, chilling weekends. Working for too long. Chilling for too long. Doing too many things or not doing anything at all. Everything or nothing at all can sometime be the reason behind us not being able to take it any more. Dramatic relationships, to crazy schedules and lazy attitudes can all lead to an intense urge of wanting to get away.

The deep desire to get away, wander and travel is Wanderlust. Psychologically speaking it can also be a symptom of bipolar disorder, the desperate impulse to wander and explore the world. But maybe that’s too farfetched an idea. So when we live all the days thinking about how the next is going to be, and about kids, and family and business and life, well, we are not thinking about the present at all. Maybe it’s time to take a break and simply wander.

If you really can’t pull off a week in Europe in hostels and eurail 😛 then maybe you start off on planning a basic doable getaway with friends. The mountains, the palaces, the beaches or just out and away. Close your eyes, take a deep deep breath and ask yourself where would you rather be right now! Wanderlust is also about not making a trip with an agenda, but to actually go and put yourself in unfamiliar situations, meet new people and break out of your comfort zone.

It’s good for the soul, shake things up, take a break and give a new experience to each of your senses. While I ran back and forth through this book i’ve got, these were the only thoughts in my mind. To be able to put a tick mark on each of these places, in the book of filmy escapes! What will travel be without super stylish comfort attires and some pretty pictures, So here goes our travel special look! Do this easy-peasy maxi dress look on the days you are out sight seeing next time.

Holiday season is here anyway, meet new people, see new things and discover a new part of yourself. Maybe you like snow, maybe you don’t. Maybe you like trekking and backpacking, maybe you are more of a relax and spa person. Maybe you don’t know what really gives you that kick yet. How would you find out if you never stepped out? Make a family vacation plan if you can’t just pack up and leave! Make a weekend plan with friends if that’s what it takes. But move, get on it, it’s the one big difference between a tree and us, we can move! Become a more well-rounded, adventurous person.

So check the time, wear your heart on the sleeve, put on a look that you love yourself in and just fly away!

Wear a simple plaid shirt, throw it on as a layer or tie it up to add a little spunk to that basic outfit!
DSC_0278

Adding a hat, cap or an interesting headgear always ups the whole look by multiple levels! have you tried?

DSC_0281

As i worked on this look, i also thought how this dress does not really make me look slim or hot. But it’s comfortable as hell and what good will exploring the world do if i don’t begin with a fresh wardrobe? So please do yourself a favour and don’t criticise your bulges all that much!DSC_0299

Tie up your hair for the long walks and a fuss free distraction free sight seeing! And oh, the heat is so much more bearable when your hair are not in the way!DSC_0314 DSC_0333

If you are done with all the walking and exploring and are finally settling for a nice meal, change a few elements on your outfit, redo the lipstick and you’re all set!DSC_0329

The make up needs to be a kind which lasts all day and goes day to night without doing anything! So I stuck to my favourites, a base, deep green kajal on the upper and the lower waterline, mascara, a little peach blush and deep red lips!
