Comfort Zone : Elle FashionWear - Autumn/Winter 15


We've survived half the week and I'm taking away rest of the mid week blues with this post. Also why I am pointlessly excited on a Wednesday is cause my birthday month starts tomorrow. Wohoo. I get super excited and act like a kid when my birthday is around and my friends have to be at the receiving end of my over flow of emotions (tantrums :p)

Gearing up for the fall(not really in Mumbai) but all lifestyle stores have launched their Autumn/Winter collection and I am always super excited to see what they have in store for us each year! Previews are always exciting and recently I visited the ELLE Fashionwear store in Inorbit and I absolutely loved their Autumn/Winter collection as it speaks comfort through and through. Elle Fashionwear has put together the best French trends topped with elite yet comfortable Parisian glamor in vivid prints and colours.

Talking about the look, I again featured a pair of joggers(not like I can't repeat, but still). As the fall comes closer, we're looking at warmer clothing and these joggers make it perfectly to my ideal snuggly clothes. As the joggers were already in a darker shade, I went with a brighter/electric blue sweater and added a holographic touch to it. The outfit can be paired with other pieces and but nonetheless is a smart investment for the coming season.

Do visit the Elle FashionWear store to view more from this collection and do let me know how you like the pair up. Also follow Elle Fashionwear on Facebook and Instagram.
See you soon.

Weekday drama with Snooz

Good morning,

I can only hope you guys have planned a crazy day ahead as I manage a hectic one. Planning to finish all my pending work (almost never true) and shooting a few new outfits for you guys. Well, a lot of you guys on Instagram have asked me for a room tour so I decided to do a shoot in my room but you can't see much of it as it is still in the making and there will be a better tour once it is properly done up, I promise!

I have never shared what I actually do in my day, so let's do that today. Shall we? My weekends are way more happening than my weekdays as partying is reserved for then. 

So i am very late sleeper, I sleep around 3 and get up around 11. As soon as I am up I check Instagram (it is my morning paper). Once I am done religiously stalking everybody, I go for a shower and then head to shoot few outfits with either of my stupid photographers who are my closest friends. Once I'm back, I hog a lot and sit to reply to my emails and try to finish my pending work after which I might or might not step out. Also, I've started playing candy crush again so whenever I take a break I am either playing that or browsing through online websites. But before all of this, as I step in, I'm hunting for comfortable pyjamas. I need PJs to breathe in.

Snooze has topped its game with these unicorn printed PJs which is my staple home wear. I alternate them with my other PJs but these scream utmost comfort and have the cutest print. Snooze has a lot of other cutsie stuff that is ideal for night wear. I've never really taken time out to give my night wear a thorough thought but honestly, this is what I'm donning most of my day at home so why not get this right? Back me up here and go over to Snooze to see more of their collection that has shorts, jumpers and more. Also, understand how important it is to me that I dedicated the entire post to it :D

"Utsavi"Collection by Manubhai Jewellers

Hello guys,

It's been long since I've posted here but I'm more than making it up on Instagram :') But I'm doing all kinds of making up with this bomb post which I recently shot at Manubhai Jewellers(Borivali).

Manubhai deals with real gold and diamonds which lets me don their wedding collection called "Utsavi".
I can describe their collection in one word, that is gorgeous. 
All of the pieces are so different and equally beautiful. I choose to go for a heavy look first and balanced it with a relatively lighter look. 

Let's talk about the first look where I chose a choker with ghungroos. Even though the earrings made the look a little OTT but the royal look simply asked for it. 

For the second look, I went with a heavy layered neck piece and bangles with Keshi pearls which I absolutely loved at sight. Yes, it is quite the Jodha Akbar type and carrying it off totally gave me the chills. But I dig such jewellery for personal weddings. They speak statement, have been traditionally won't over the years and one can hardly go wrong with it. 

The designs were breath taking and I was lucky to wear what I personally loved. Do visit them to have a look at some unique pieces that are a must for Indian Weddings.
