The Modern Gypsy ?>

The Modern Gypsy

When it comes to fashion, you could either follow it or create your own fashion. Then it becomes your style. As Yves Saint Laurent rightly said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” I like those who have a strong sense of individuality in terms of their style. For this post, I was inspired by the Gypsy/Bohemian style of dressing. In modern usage, being Gypsy or Bohemian broadly relates to being free-spirited, non-conformist, usually with an artistic flare. The essence of this style is creating a rich…

From Mundane to Mumbai ?>

From Mundane to Mumbai

Sometimes we overlook the beautiful things around us. I can talk about Mumbai in a similar fashion. I was in Mumbai for some work and while it is not an ideal place for vacation, it was a mini break from my routine. I have been here multiple times, never have I explored the city like this before. It is true that one can find beauty even in the busiest of cities. It has been a while since I sat down and penned…

Parisian Stripes ?>

Parisian Stripes

Nothing spells out Parisian chic like a striped look. In terms of French style, breton stripes are a classic piece. When I see pictures of French women, I obviously want to dress like them. The key is simplicity. Black being the major color, followed by gray; both instantly bring out sophistication and elegance. With black you can dress it casually or formally and it works wonders. French women keep accessories to a minimum and wear flats. Growing up, my father…

Road Trip to Lake Tahoe ?>

Road Trip to Lake Tahoe

Resting on the California – Nevada border, Lake Tahoe is a beautiful, crystal-clear blue lake nestled among mountain peaks and makes for a great summer and winter getaway. I think the best way to get to Lake Tahoe is by car since the scenery is spectacular. Although it is a long drive to Lake Tahoe from Los Angeles, I am never to shy away from a road trip; especially when the journey takes you through soaring, rugged mountains, roaring rivers, lakes, and…

Dressing up with Dresslink ?>

Dressing up with Dresslink

Like Carrie Bradshaw, I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet. Let’s be honest, not everyone can afford those designer wardrobes, but there are plenty of budget friendly options out there. I was recently introduced to Dresslink, an online shopping portal for women based in China. I ordered three items, a light cotton dress (size M), a geometric print chiffon kimono (size S) and a coin necklace; all for a total of $21 (including shipping)….

Personal Style ?>

Personal Style

Lately, I have been thinking about the concept of personal style. Do I have one? I don’t know yet. As a little girl, my mother picked out my clothes; for obvious reasons. I mostly wore dresses and skirts. Come high school, I started to pick my own clothes and I would gravitate towards jeans and t-shirts. That was my style, then. We used to go to Jaipur occasionally to shop and the group used to comprise of my mother, aunt…

Red Off Shoulder ?>

Red Off Shoulder

When I saw this red off-shoulder top at Zara, it got me thinking of a beach vacation. I never got to have my beach vacation and this top stayed in my closet for one whole year, until now. I paired this off-shoulder top with a button down skirt from Forever 21 and black heels. The skirt is light and airy and so comfortable for everyday wear. I wanted to wear something in my neck to add a casual flare to my…

Be a Tourist in Your Own City

Want an escape from the daily routine and yet not travel afar? Be a tourist in your own city and explore the ins and outs like a pro. Talking about my hometown, Jodhpur – a small city in the state of Rajasthan; is a popular destination for travelers. Being a local, I never immersed into the history and culture of Jodhpur until my friends from college came to visit. As a child, I had been to all the places that were…

Mustard Muse

The balmy summer months may be long and unbearable but I still associate it with exuberant & happy colors like mustard. As I am tempted to wear lighter shades, I remind myself that I must not neglect the vibrant colors and keep my wardrobe more bright and… well, more mustard. My muse, this time, will be lovely mustard color and silver jewellery. In this post, we are featuring a talented artist, designer and entrepreneur – Vijayshree Sovani. Through her signature…

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas ?>

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas

In my opinion you don’t need a guide to Las Vegas. All you have to do is book your flight or pump up the gas in your car and just GET to Vegas. Although words cannot describe what I feel for Vegas, I shall try to pen down my fascination for the Sin City in this post. To start with, just writing this post is giving me goose bumps. It was the year 2012, when this self-proclaimed mountain loving girl; fell in…
