Riot

Maybe it was the wrong side of the bed (or the right) but I woke up with the sudden urge of wearing something daring today. Why would the thought of wearing white/black with a chaotic color even wander through your mind when you have a gazillion more interesting alternatives? Remember the riot of colors that would flash on out television screens a decade back when a particular channel was unavailable? That was my inspiration.
Over-dozing on prints and a turbulence of colors , these are a few pictures that are provoking me currently.

What I'm Wearing - Cool Kats Crop Top, Zara Jeans, Dorothy Perkins belt, DKNY bag and Style Fiesta shoes.

Stumbled upon an incidental tweet by Nina Garcia that accurately explains how I'm feeling right now - 
'Best inspiration in the world - Every day, every moment, keep your eyes wide open. The unexpected (style revelation) can happen..'

Sequins Play

What I'm Wearing - Zara dress, Topshop cuff, Vintage earrings & Ray Ban sunglasses.

Drizzled in sparkling hand-stitiched rust and silver sequins this dress is everything you're looking for in the 'perfect' holiday season attire - fitting for December like no other. The tidbits of bronze + silver + gold gives you a sky-rocketing glamour quotient.
The super statement claw cuff I'm wearing was an impulse buy, and if there's one thing I've learnt over the years it's that impulse buys are the Kohinoors of your wardrobe.
All in all - however stereotypical it might be, I'm LOVING sequins! And sometimes its fun playing along with the trends of the crowd :)

Happy Birthday Style Fiesta


Happy Birthday Style Fiesta!
As a special treat I bought myself a gorgeous Jeffrey Campbell, El Carmen pair from Solestruck. (See above) Might I warn you - if your on the lookout for some serious shoe therapy, don't step into solestruck.com, you might just end up with a yard long credit card bill.

It's been a fabulous year and it never would have been without all your consistent love and encouragement, so here's a BIG thank you to all my readers.
Stay tuned - there are bigger and better things in tow :)

Why Women Love Shoes.

I adore the sensation of crossing the threshold from the parking lot, into the sanctuary of a mall and finally on the doorstep of my favorite place in the whole wide world. The shoe shop. Hearing the low hum of voices, appreciative murmurs and wispy contrails of music as I step into the glass doors, admiring the inevitable over-commercialized shoe-glory as I loiter through the concourse and pass window displays decked out in gleaming shoe finery, I think to myself 'There's nowhere else I'd rather be.'

Shoes tend to have that dramatic effect on me, and millions of other women around the globe. They'r collected, savored, pampered, loved and worn with utmost adoration. Buying the perfect shoe or heck, even trying it on, can light up a woman's face. Its an unconditional relationship to say the least- no weight gain, and no mood swing can affect it. 

Marilyn Monroe most definitely had her facts right when she said-  'Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.'

Pencil Skirt Trend

What I'm Wearing - Zara Pencil Skirt, Animal print top from a London boutique, Zara shoes, Style Fiesta Store sunglasses and vintage earrings

Lets take a second to thank Christian Dior for the dynamic birth of the 'Pencil Skirt' in the 1940's. Believe me, once you wear this trend, there is no turning back.
I was recently featured on UTV Bindass in a show called Style Police and this is the outfit I intended to wear for my big moment on TV. Due to an uncertain turn of events, things didn't quite go my way and I had to stick to a Little Black Dress, but ever since then it has unavoidably become the most commanding and magnetic ensemble of my wardrobe. 
Pencil skirts inevitably bring with them a sense of power. Try it yourself, and you'll know its true!

Trend Report - Blazer

Photos - Anicca Chabbra
What I'm Wearing - Blazer from a London boutique, Miss Selfridge lace dress, H&M Chain worn as bracelet and Dorothy Perkins sunglasses.

Only once in a lifetime does your luck favor you so intricately that a blazer so perfect falls into your hands. The benchmark of a 'good' blazer is unquestionably its fitting; and mine couldn't get an ounce better even if it tried. You all are well versed with my partiality to gold accessories and tints and the buttons in Balmain-style transformed my look from trendy street to red carpet worthy. 

Talking of blazers - fellow blogger Simin Lakhani of Vivacious in Vogue has a fantastic collection of coats, winter jackets, free-falling blazers and capes. We scarcely find attractive winter collections in India - and this might just be our savior. Check them out here. 

P.S. - If you haven't already discovered, a blazer is easily the most efficient asset to have on hand while transforming your look from day to night - work to party.
