OOTD: Denim Dress + Floral Necklace

For me a denim dress is a closet staple, and that’s because it’s so easy to dress-up a denim dress. All you need is a fun accessory, like a statement necklace, and voila you’re ready to hit the town.

Talking about denim dresses, I just have two of them, but every time I’m in doubt as to what to wear, I find myself reaching out for one of the two dresses, like I did a couple of weeks back. I had to run a couple of errands and then head to the mall for some shopping, and I did not really have the time to get all ‘dolled-up’. So I just pulled out my denim dress, threw on a floral necklace, stuffed my necessities in my Speedy 30, and I was good to go. That simple!

What are your closet staples?

Indian Wedding Guest: Sangeet +Cocktail Outfit

I think I am going to call these posts the ‘Indian Wedding Guest Series’ just because all the outfits are centred around what a guest (read: me) would wear or has already worn to an Indian wedding.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started with this post. In February we attended a couple of weddings, and I know that February was a long time ago, but hey, February weather is pretty similar to October/November weather and so the outfit/s I wore might serve as fashion inspiration for the coming Autumn weddings (if that makes sense).

So, coming back to the outfit, in this post I’ll take you through my look for a friend’s Sangeet + Cocktail (whose wedding we attended in Feb). I chose a hot pink Anarkali that had been sitting pretty in my closet since quite some time, but somehow I hadn’t been able to do justice to it.  So I chose to wear it for our friend’s Sangeet/Cocktail. Now since the venue was indoors, the sleeveless Anarkali in breezy chiffon fabric was the perfect choice. And the fact that although the silhouette was rather traditional, the modern neckline, and sequined embroidery added a perfect touch of glam (much needed for the cocktail-ish setting) to the outfit.  For accessories, I just wore huge pearl earrings, and my rosegold watch (Tommy Hilfiger). For footwear, I wore my faux snake-sin heels from Marks & Spencer and carried a grungy black clutch from Zara.

I know the photo quality isn’t great, but this photo was not clicked with the intention of using it on this blog.

I love reading your comments so do drop in a line or two.

OOTD: Reggae Vibes

I love me some stripes, and I love me some colour. So when you combine stripes and colour, it automatically results in my favourite outfit. And when the colour palette has a strong reggae vibe to it, it just makes the outfit that much more special.

Confused by the description? Checkout the dress I wore a couple of weeks back. This dress is super comfortable and fits beautifully. I like the fuss-free style and the fact that it’s cotton makes it for an easy wear in this humid weather.

I paired the dress up with my brown Bata flats and a tan belt (from Bangkok). And my choice of handbag was the Louis Vuitton Galliera PM. I love how the tan elements (in the accessories) complement the outfit and pull the whole look together. I also wore a peach hair-band (also from Bangkok). If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I have been loving hair-bands.

Dress: Watch this to know (and get pleasantly surprised).
Footwear: Bata
Handbag: Louis Vuitton Galliera PM

A Day at the Mall: OOTD + VLOG

The other day, my Husband and I went to the mall to pick up a few items (none pertaining to me though). And while I almost always enjoy getting dressed for the mall, that particular day I didn't have enough time to fuss over my outfit. So I wore the simplest outfit ever, and I think I managed to look half decent. J

I chose a sheer, printed blouse (which was a favourite at the time I was working with a law firm, but hadn't received much love lately) and paired it with my trusted dark blue skinnies. For shoes my obvious choice were the silver ballet flats I'd picked up from Bangkok. I say obvious because malls require a ton of walking, and for that I need to be in my comfiest pair of footwear, although I've spotted plenty of girls rocking 6 inch heels and trotting about the mall (why would they torture themselves!). And the star attraction of my outfit (I hope that phrase makes sense though) was my gorgeous Louis Vuitton handbag. It's such a beautiful handbag, perfect for a day at the mall as it's an over the shoulder bag and extremely comfortable to carry. The photo you see was taken at the basement parking of the mall. If you're a Delhi girl, I'm sure you would have already guessed the mall in question (if not, watch the VLOG). :) I love creativity in any form and the colourful graffiti splattered all across the parking lot is such a great reminder of all the latent creativity that people have.

In case I have piqued your curiosity and you would want to have a look at my day at the mall, just click the play button.

Kimono Convert: OOTD

I have been a fairly recent ‘Kimono Convert’. I am not usually the one to jump on to the latest trend bandwagon, and it did take me a while to try on kimonos, but once I did, there was no going back. What to do…they are the easiest thing to throw on, and they make a simple jeans+ tee outfit look instantly dressy. So every time I am in a (wardrobe) fix, I just wear a kimono over my basic outfit and feel ‘put-together’.

Now you might remember this kimono from my Spring/Summer Haul. It’s been a couple of months since I got it, and it was my first kimono ever, but I have worn it like 50 times already!

So last week, when I had to go for a casual meeting, I just paired up this beautiful blue kimono with a pair of dark skinnies and white tank top. To make the outfit a little dressy, I wore my metallic ballet flats, and carried my current favourite Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 handbag in Damier Azur.

Check-out how I wore this kimono at the Grub Fest.
