Not A Royal Misfit


Skirt- Classicouturegallery, Crop Top & Heels- Forever21,
Choker- Blur, Ring- Lokhandwala, Glares- Lola's Closet

Hello there, 

Let me introduce you to this lovely tulle skirt, it gave me such a grand feel on trying. I am lovestruck by this masterpiece from Classic Couture Gallery. I wanted to go that afternoon itself and shoot it because I just couldn't resist myself. I wanted to own one tulle skirt since a really really long time and this be the start.

While we decided to shoot the next day, I was all excited to style this tulle skirt. I was viewing my closet and started searching which crop top would match the best. I was in two minds, whether to go with a navy blue or oxblood. When I tried the oxblood, it made the whole look much prettier and the full sleeves stood out and made the way to go!
So I decided to head with my plain oxblood crop as the skirt was printed. If you happen to follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you all would know, lately I'm teaming everything with red. I'm gaga about all of its shades.Anyway, I didn't accessorize heavily because the skirt itself gave a royal touch so I thought to keep it minimal. I wore a broken stone ring and completed the look with a golden and black choker. 

There are variations in tulle skirts, I've loved the bright plain colours and varied prints. Tulle skirt sure make you feel like a princess for the time being as you are sure to catch a few eyeballs sporting these skirts. You can either wear plain crops with them or even play with prints on prints. I agree with both.

You can check out Classic Couture Gallery for more clothing from this collection. It is a Delhi based online store and trust me their stuff is really pretty and I'm totally in love with it. You can follow them on Instagram and Facebook to know about their crazy offers too. 

While deciding the whole look, there was something that I always wanted to carry in my posts which were these pretty mix of white flowers and here was my chance.
The whole shoot needed to be just as royal as I didn't want to let the skirt down, I wanted the location to be amazing so we headed early morning to Pizza By The Bay, Marine Drive and had a blast while shooting it. Hope you guys liked this post. Until next time :)

Floral Burst

Jumper & Gladiators- Forever21, Bag- Colaba, Studded Hand-Bands- Lokhandwala

Hey guys! I am sorry for this loong absence, but hey, I am back now! I have been so busy with work and meetings, ufff. But anyway, did i tell you all ? A lot of fun giveaways and projects are coming your way super soon.

Now, to start with, this look is one of my personal favourites. I personally love to mix and match, which might involve pairing a crop with jeans, skirts or palazzo or with different jewellery but I don't believe in wearing the same looks and this one was a treat to work on.
There is always something new you can bring to the table as I feel dressing simple is too boring. You should always try and experiment with your looks. What if something you thought you'd never wear turns out to be your new favourite.

To be very honest I've never really liked floral prints. I always hesitated before wearing anything floral, I never thought I'd be able to carry it ! But I threw on a floral jumper just to see what the hoopla was about and guess what, I fell in love with it. I have a lot of floral stuff in my closet now- like shirts, crops, pants, leggings, and of course maxis.
Floral prints can be carried at any time of the day. They never disappoint. And yes always add up accessories, they make the look a lot more complete. As I had mentioned in my previous post, I just can't step out without wearing accessories. 

Anyway, there was no way I would miss talking about my favourite GLADIATORS. I had my eyes on them since the day I saw them on the F21 website and it had been quite a while that I had gone to check out the new arrivals from the stores, and well, they didn't fail to surprise me with these stocked up. I bought these dreamy pair and was lovestruck. I couldn't wait to wear it. 
I feel the gladiators make me look tall as I'm really short (sobs) and they give an edge to your everyday look. I prefer teaming them with short dresses amd jumpers, shorts, and so on. 

I'm planning to own one more pair of glads real soon (when are they enough?) but I'm really confused which colour to go for... So guys do give me your suggestions in your comments below and if you own a pair, do share your look. 

Ps. I've seen Alia Bhatt sport these and she pulled them off really well. 

Love, Riya

Go Madish

Blazer- China, Iceblue Tback- Forever21, Jeans- Zara, Choker- Promod,
Sling & Heels- Madish Thestylebar

 Hello there,

I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. I had an amazing one, a little busy but fun.

For me, Sunday means staying at home, either lazing around or chilling with friends and obviously shopping.
You know how monsoons are, the downpour may leave you wondering whether you must leave your house all dressed or not.

So last Sunday morning while it was raining heavily, I had to go for a meeting and then head for brunch with friends. I decided to dress a little casually and carry a white blazer, so that it lent a formal touch. If you are timid and not bold enough to go all out, you can always try subtly color blocking the way I have with a slice of pink accented with an ice blue top. The heels and the sling(madishthestylebar) helped complete the look.

Madish the stylebar is a clothing brand with really good stuff, so do check it out. They have a wide range of clothing, housing many of my personal favorites.
Follow Madish on Instagram and Facebook . You'll see what I mean.

P.S. Madish The stylebar is exhibiting on October 8th that is next month at Villa 69. Follow them for details and GO MADISH.
