Would a bride ditch the Red & go Black?

Quite excited to announce a new section on the blog, details on that coming real soon.

As of now, I’d say pick up some hints and tell me what you think it will be about?

Monsoon & Weddings, the two words seem tough to use in the same wedding unless you are referring to the movie. but when I got down to some real research and sourcing I was having a tough time looking for bridal wear, the colours seem slightly restricted as soon as I decided to break away from the obvious reds, pinks etc.

Going by the new-age bridal trends as well as keeping it classy and well within the current style, Pune’s lead Fashion Designer, Seema Singh had all the answers! Featuring below is one of her hot selling off-shoulder-black beauty lehenga. Black you’d think is all kinds of crazy for brides, for the wedding, yes, but nothing spells beauty like a black at the reception. If you are one of those looking for the right blend of trendy and traditional, well this is pretty much that.

It’s non-daring, safe and so comfortable that a Bride would have one less concern on her D-day. Head to Seema Singh’s store for a personalised bridal session on whats and hows of seasonal bridal wear, and more!

As of me finally being back to putting up posts, thank you so much for the patience.

Been away for far too long.

Too many excuses, none of them really true.

I’m here now, hoping to stay here longer. Write again. Feel good again, share some, learn some and love a lot.

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!

Saree with a hint of steam. #DrapeGame

Are you one of those many many girls who absolutely adore the saree on people, but would never dare to try it on?

Don’t worry, You’re not alone. The ultimate sexy and traditional outfit gives a lot of us jitters with the thought of wearing it. How do you drape that? How will my curves look bulging out? How short will it make me appear? What if it opens up? and the classic fear, what if I trip and fall? While we saved the saree for farewell nights in school, and wedding receptions, there came Sonam Kapoor and broke all saree rules!!

Pairing it in ways we had not imagined, and draping it in weirdly chic styles, she opened my heart to the amazing saree. The trips and tricks to hide the flaws and look stunning in a saree are a zillion, just get down to it.

For this post, we are collaborating with Tanvi Ejrekar, a famous Pune-based designer who is launching her all new December collection with Jugni & Co.

In this drop dead gorgeous cherry red saree, I felt like absolute royalty. Styled it over a formal white shirt and flared pants. It made me look leaner and taller. Felt super silly that I haven’t done this yet!! What do you think?

The eternal semi-precious jewellery was a true game changer in both the looks. So light and wearable, I felt as beautiful as my mumma wearing these pieces and didn’t feel like taking them off. Check them out here https://www.facebook.com/divajewelspune/?fref=ts

Jugni's Take Style

Dear Zindagi, I always want to dress like this.

Even though I don’t understand how you change every single day, I love you Zindagi.

Even though you take away people I love the most, I love you Zindagi.

Even though I plan, you change the rules of the game, I still love you Zindagi.

Many times we stumble upon words or visuals that effortlessly trigger an emotion in you. That’s the kind of effect I felt as I watched the different teasers of upcoming film Dear Zindagi. Aren’t we all in the race to repair-recycle-reuse ourselves? Just like they showed in the trailers? Post-breakup we hate all the coochy-cooing couples, we get annoyed with never ending traffic, we don’t ever truly disconnect from all our work and technology even when we’re on a break. But when we find that amazing parking spot right at the entrance of the store, or that tiny moment when we clear the green light by a second, that time when you get offered a drink at every hour in the club by different people. That moment we say, with all of that Love you Zindagi.

The over exaggerated snap stories, the over the top dressing for no reason, the unplanned solo trips, the weekend getaways with friends, the drunk nights, the yoga mornings.

Dear Zindagi, these are a few of my favorite things.

  • Cycling down a slope
  • Paper boats and origami too
  • Messy hair-don’t care vibe on someday
  • Long hugs
  • Passionate Kisses
  • Easy Goodbyes and teary eyed hellos!
  • Petrichor
  • Full Moons
  • Dipping my feet in the pool
  • Conversations that don’t end
  • Speaking to someone till the sunrise
  • Being alone, and sometimes never being alone
  • Being able to decide whatever I want & do it!

Dear Zindagi, You are my favorite.

The little things that not just bring you a smile but actually stay etched in your memory for a long time to come. As I etched back in nostalgia, I had to do a post, decoding Alia Bhatt’s easy breezy I-Already-Have-This-In-My-Wardrobe-Look.

Dear Zindagi, a film which seems to have the potential to change my life! I just have a strong urge that this movie will leave us with the exact same warm fuzzy leaving that we feel after sipping on hot cocoa on a cold lonely night. Shahrukh plays a coach & mentor to Alia who seems to have had a tricky past with Kunal Kapoor *drools* Angad Bedi and maybe a few more men. Did you know, the part where SRK and Alia was cycling and Alia fell off the cycle is actually inspired from a real life incident that occurred on the set of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai where Kajol on a similar occasion lost control of her cycle. So cute! Sport the Dear Zindagi looks and stay comfy all day wherever you go today! #LoveYouZindagi

Read on to recreate Kaira’s looks from the upcoming movie releasing on Nov.25th.

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.

Dressing for Dandiya nights, when you don’t have a chaniya-choli! #NavratriMustHave

Happy Navratri!

A few years ago, I used to plan and prepare for Navratri nights weeks in advance with my white plastic bangle sets, authentic outfits, and accessories. I even had a family friend courier the outfit to me from Ahmedabad, because the patterns there were so updated and prettier from the ones here in Pune. Did you also take a 3-day crash course in Garba pre-navratri? School dandiya night, society dandiya, and ones in the clubs here in Pune. Then came those random events at grounds where TV stars would come and give away best-dressed awards and best group Garba awards. My God the pressure used to be intense.

Some days those used to be no? Coming to the present. I barely realise when Navratri starts unless Mom announces it. So here I am, stuck with no prep and a few Garba nights ahead of me.

Activated Jugni mode and we came up with a quick fix for our readers too. Dive into your wardrobe for heavy dupattas (preferably with shells / mirrorwork / bandini / lehriya / phulkari) as ethnic as it can get. Bring out all those old tucked away accessories, oxidised stuff, maang tikkas, bangles, kamar bands and more. The trick is to layout all options you have and then put together a look.

Doing the same, here are two easy-peasy looks for Dandiya nights. Also, google Deepu in RamLeela for makeup references just like me and go all out with drawings on the face and neck. So sexy.

Used dad’s kurta buttons as a choker and was so impressed with the way it turned out. Ever tried? _dsc1977

Deep Kohl eyes are kind of a compulsion, and this pinterest inspired hair kept my fringe away from the face and the look fuss free._dsc1991 _dsc2007

Another Navratri special DIY look coming up in the next post, stay tuned. Psst. If you are a fan of reusing old dresses and pom-poms you’ll love it. Till then, tell us if you have simply draped a heavy dupatta on your old tee and jeans for dandiya before?

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.

Let me know if you are a serial outfit repeater too, so we can share ideas of doing it without getting caught. The pressure is immense to not look the same on snap chat twice, and you get the drift. Hence, this blogger feels post comes your way urging you to invest in staple garments that can be played around with, without too much stress and guarantee you some self love and extra likes on your next upload too.

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.

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.

Cold Shoulders and Ripped Jeans! #TrendAlert

Who knew giving a cold shoulder would be cool!

Cold shoulder tops are the rage right now. And they are so perfect for the summer. What I love about them is the perfect balance of skin show and hide! These consist of peek-a-boo sleeves, off shoulders, one shoulder tops or in-cut sleeves, punch hole sleeves and many more. Basically all those that flaunt your sexy shoulders!

Try them in basic colours with interesting denims like the one below, or even pair this with a fitted skirt for a casual chic vibe. These looks also show my love for basic solid colours and how black and white are the answers to any style problem. You are never over or under dressed when you put on the classics.

Don’t you agree? Have a look and let me know how you liked this easy look.
