ISLM Travels: My Dilli Haat Haul



 ISLM Travels: My Dilli Haat Haul

This post has been due since a really long time! I visited Delhi over the long Eid weekend and though it was a short trip, I did squeeze in an evening of shopping all thanks to my sweet sweet in-laws! I am not very well versed with roads in Delhi and to be honest, I am pretty scared to be alone in Delhi and hence I am always waiting for someone to either take me places or at least accompany me to various places...

The pati when in Delhi is generally busy with work or his friends and hence this time my in-laws decided to take me around Delhi... The Dilli Haat in South Delhi has always been my favorite place to shop from but my in-laws this time had a different plan... They had heard about a *new* Dilli Haat that had been started in Janakpuri and since none of us had been there before, we decided to check it out...

The Dilli Haat in Janakpuri isn't fully operational yet. There are only 21 stalls and the food court that's operating... Crowd-wise I prefer the other Dilli Haat, however the one at Janakpuri had some unique stuf and because of a reduced crowd, the stall owners do entertain bargaining and I did get some great deals there.

So here's what I got from the new Dilli Haat :)

1. Buddha Fragrance Diffuser 

I am sucker for candles, fragrance diffusers, incense sticks, ambient lighting and all that jazz... If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know about it already ;) So when I came across this stall that was selling all of these things I knew I had to get something and this fragrance diffuser in the shape of Buddha meditating looked so unique! Plus I got it for INR 150/-!!! Awesome isn't it? :)

2. Embroidered and Embellished Sling Bag

I got this from a stall that was selling a lot of Gujarati handicrafts including mirrored cushion covers, embroidered bed covers, cowrie shell belts and other knick-knacks. What attracted me to this particular bag was the pastel shaded embroidery and the fake golden coins used as embellishments :)
I got this for INR 300/-

3. Kantha Embroidered Patch Work Dupatta

You know I am a huge patron of handlooms and handicrafts and hence when I spotted a stall selling Kantha I knew I had to pick something up. I have a lot of Kantha sarees and dress materials but they are the typical embroideries on a solid base color. Why I picked this particular dupatta up was for the beautiful patchwork.
I got this for INR 1000/-

4. Cream Lace Cigarette Pants

I am perhaps the last person to get onto the "cigarette pants under long kurta" bandwagon. And when I laid my eyes on this gorgeous cream colored net cigarette pants they simply beckoned to me.
Price: INR 700/-

5. Hand Painted and Handmade Pottery

These perhaps were the highlight of my shopping trip. The stall was from West Bengal and the artist himself was the stall owner. he and his would make these handmade pottery using the clay from the Ganges delta (that's what he claimed) and then hand painted them. Each and every piece was different from the other rendering every piece as unique!
Don't you think they are beautiful?


  1. Nice picks...i loved that sling bag

  2. The Kantha dupatta and the handpainted pottery are beautiful and great prices too !

    1. I swear! I find Delhi pretty reasonable as compared to Pune but the prices in Dilli Haat totally bowled me over! :)

  5. Nice handicraft items! I didn't know there was another Dilli Haat. Will visit it someday! :)

  6. I picked something similar to that sling bag on my last trip to Dilli Haat. I love that place. Such a beautiful way to celebrate the handiwork of India.

  7. Wow..It all looks sooo amazing!! Nice Pick.. :) :)

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
