Spanish Fashion

with 4 comments

Yesterday Zara was launched in Delhi. There was huge queue even to make payment, leave aside the trial room and inside the store. Being a shopaholic, I could not resist myself from checking out the clothes. They were OK. Nothing over the top. I could not understand why were people so crazy about it. It reminded me of the time when Mc Donald was launched in India and people queued up. I would buy from Zara but only when the initial excitement of the masses subsides down.
My favorite Spanish brand of clothes is Desigual. It is so me. It is colors- vibrant colors, patch work, embroidery, funky and fun. You should check their website on the link provided above.

Mauve- My sister’s favorite color

with 7 comments

My favorite color is Fuschia and White. I like this fact even more now because white is my Guruji, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s color and Fuschia is favorite color of Guruji’s sister, Bhanu didi. Now my sister’s favorite color is mauve. The other day when I was seeing my wardrobe, I realized that I have ended up buying more of mauve colors than fuschia. Why? Maybe because whenever I have liked a dress, it is not available in my favorite color but my sister’s.
Well, my kind of dress has to be structured and which enhances my curves (yes i do have some). The cut, the fabric, the style is important. And when I do go out in the evening, I do enjoy dressing up.
So here are few of my styles.


I like the detail on the shoulder


Dress: Gifted by my friend
Shoes: Miu Miu
Clutch: Gucci
Watch: Channel
Location courtesy :Taj Palace- Blues.


Dress : Mango
The complete ensemble. I wanted to keep it monotone.


Earings: Bought from my dad, who is a jeweler.
I like the detail of satin bow on the neck.


And I like the deep back.


Bag: Louis Vuitton
Watch:Bought on Alaska Cruise
Bangles: Bought from dad


Shoes: salvatore ferragamo

The Magic Skirt

with 11 comments

Shopping always fascinates me and I know am very good at it too. While in Honolulu, I went to Aloha Stadium. Here there was a huge area filled with small shops selling variety of products. The most unusual thing that I picked up and that really excited me was something called The magic skirt. It is very much made in India and made by joining two inexpensive sarees and is like a wrap around thing. But the beauty of it is that it can be worn in hundred of different ways and every time you have a new dress on you. The sales guy demonstrated us (me, my sister, my mom) these ways and also gave us a pamphlet which taught us how to wear it. On my recent trip to Bali, I carried it along and experimented so many different ways of wearing the same skirt. I loved what I did. Here are fruits of my experimentation. You can also see or order these skirts at their website of wonderskirts.


This I wore in Mauii while heading for a dinner.

And Now see my experiments in Bali.
