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.

Let's Talk About My Obsession with Salwar Kameez

Let's Talk About My Obsession with Salwar Kameez
I am not sure how or when did this obsession start. It could be because of the self-realization of finally wearing the FabIndia kurtas that I have been accumulating over the past years or could be because I ultimately discovered how comfortable and smart fitted and cropped pants look under a long kurta or even may be because I have finally gotten bored of the basic Jeans and Tee look that I sport at work...

Whatever the reasons, I am enjoying this phase to the fullest :)





I currently buy my everyday Kurtas from FabIndia, W for Woman and Aurelia. My cropped and fitted pants are either from W for Woman and Aurelia. Personally, I prefer the pants from "W" better than from Aurelia. Where do you buy yours from? What brands do you suggest?

It has been eons since I did an outfit post on the blog.

Outfit Post: Am wearing Oxblood :D (and a hair cut update!)

Hola chicas! :D The past weekend was one of the best I have had in a long time :) Why? Am not so sure but I have a strong inkling that it was because of the fact that it was a perfect blend of shopping, updating my fashion quotient, learning to cook a new dish, Diwali cleaning, meeting close friends and getting a makeover :) I'll go about each one in detail...

Lemme start with some retail healing. I absolutely abhor the phrase "retail therapy" as it has become too jaded and over-used. So much so that people going for grocery shopping also label the experience as retail therapy! No offense here but seriously any shopping or "buying" experience cannot be termed as retail therapy you know! Come on look it up... HINT: If you are always retail therapy-ing then you are a patient of chronic depression! And we know that at least us in the beauty blogging world are not depressed :)
So anyways, I actually went to the mall to exchange shirt for the Pati and well I return…

Outfit Post: Karwachauth 2012 :)

Oh yeah baby, I kept the Mother-Of-All-Fasts yesterday and emerged triumphant ;) All of you by now probably know that I am half Manipuri and half bengali but married to a Punjabi... So even though culturally Karwachauth is an alien concept for me from my parents' side, this is a major occasion on my in-laws side. However, parents both mine and his insisted I not keep the fast, I still did... Why? Well, I did have a couple of reasons but the main one apart from a full day of dieting was that I thought I should don the pati vrata mode in full regalia at least once a year ;) 
For those of you who don't under about Karwachauth, it is a custom followed by Hindu women in Northern and Western India, where they fast from daybreak to after sunset without even a sip of water. They finally break their fast after viewing the moon through a sieve. Now Bollywood movies have glorified and dramatized Karwachauth especially the Karan Johar and Yash Chopra productions, so much so that it has n…

Outfit Post: Subho Bijoya At Office

Subho Bijoya... Happy Dussehra :) Even though yesterday was this much celebrated festival of India, we did not have a holiday in office and to top it of, yesterday was the busiest day of my life! :( In order to keep us cheered up, our office people decided to declare the day as Traditional Day and well yup we were expected to dress up in our traditional best and come to work! ha ha ha.. I love the irony!

So anyways, I chose one of my favorite suits, which I guess I have already featured here on ISLM :) Its a raw silk green kurta with silk threaded embroidery and maroon churidaar and dupatta to go... Its a simple yet elegant suit and I love it for that :)

Outfit Post: A Day Out with Mamma to the First Indian Starbucks

By now everyone knows that Starbucks has finally entered India in alliance with Tata and their flagship store has been set shop in South Mumbai at the Hornimun Circle Area... So this weekend when I went to Mumbai, I knew I had to go brunching with my mom to Starbucks and yay what an experience :) Now of course everyone says that Starbucks is one of the most overrated coffee shops in the world and all that jazz but really I am having a 60 seconds of fame thing going on and plus come on Starbucks is finally in India, is something I really think we as Indians should celebrate :) Foreign investors coming to our country to earn money is like a big deal people!
Isn't it awesome to see the Starbucks sign in Hindi/Marathi? ;)





Here, is what I wore...

Outfit Post: For A Night of Catching Up!

It's been a while I have left school (understatement of the year but whatever!) and well I am guilty of not being in touch with most of my school mates over all these years... They have been catching up and meeting up but somehow I could never get the time or the situation was just not right. So finally this weekend when I went to Bombay, I decided to pester my school friends who live in Bombay to finally meet with me. We met up at this awesome place called "Big Nasty" in Bandra and conversation just flowed :) It was great getting back home super high and then acting as if everything was normal in front of my mom! LOL :D

This is what I wore... Simple but quirky ;)

Nope! It isn't an all black outfit... Why? Check out the next pic :)

What To Wear: For A Stroll In The Club Golf Course By The Sea

I love where I stay in Bombay... I stay in Colaba in South Bombay and there is no place else in the country that can match to it... Sandwiched between the Arabian Sea on one side and the best street shopping market in the city i.e. Colaba Causeway on the other, rich with heritage buildings and monuments and even cobbled stone streets in some stretches, "old town" i.e Colaba is sure a part of paradise :) *Touchwood*...

The last weekend that I was in Bombay, we had a Mumbai Bloggers Meet on Saturday, which by now am sure you all know about... So I kept Sunday for my mom solely and we spent the whole day in leisure almost like we were having a best friends' day out :) Around 4:00 pm in the afternoon, my mom started craving some chaat and we decided to go to the US Club where we could stroll along the sea and also satiate our yearning for some chatpat stuff :)

So this is what I wore...




Outfit Breakup
1. Top - Mango
