Not Perfect, So what!


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey there! Apologies for being MIA on the blogging front. I’ve been penning down my thoughts since a while and I’m glad I could curate a story about something which is really close to my heart.

So those who have been with me on my journey since the beginning, know that I am an academician besides being a fashion blogger.

That means, I interact with students every day, especially the age group of 13-16. I feel fortunate enough to have connected with every student that I’ve interacted with and be able to be their guardian of sorts.

Most of you’ll must have seen the hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. As much as it seems exaggerated and depressing, the content of the show does throw light on some serious issues such as Bullying and Peer pressure. Now, you may ask how is this connected to my current blog story? Well, for starters being a teacher and a blogger, I have a platform where I can address this issue.

Bullying doesn’t only mean physically hurting somebody, but traumatizing someone to an extent where they lose their identity, constantly demeaning someone for their appearance or their social status! I hate to admit it but social media does have a major role to play in this vicious circle!

You see pictures on Instagram or statuses on Facebook which only glorify extravagance. You see pictures of people with their perfect bodies, perfect attire in some exotic location and you start wishing for such an extravagant life yourself!  I see such insecurity amongst students as well where their conversations  revolve around who has a better phone or a better car! How utterly ridiculous is that!

I get messages from people being appreciative of my blog work and at times they are nasty as well. Now I don’t want to be go all sentimental about it but I won’t deny the fact that at times it does shake me up.  But I’ve learnt to comprehend a fact that people are nasty when they want to hide their own insecurities and I understand that. However, we all need to introspect about the consequences of our actions. There has to be a constant realization that NONE OF US ARE PERFECT! What you see on social media is not the entire truth. You can’t scrutinize yourself or somebody else based on some glossy perception!

I don’t want to sound preachy but I too go through days of self-doubt. I too feel insecure about some aspects of my body (especially my nose- I’ve always heard that I have a parrot nose) but I’ve learnt to love my flaws  and it has made my life much better and made me more confident to do whatever the hell I want to or dress the way I like.

Taking cue from this thought, I’ve styled an oversized white slogan tee which describes the mood of this story aptly with a black ruffled midi skirt. Also, we’ve barely re-touched the images keeping them as raw and real as we could.

IMG_9892IMG_9916IMG_9902IMG_9907IMG_9897C360_2017-06-27-22-09-51-321-01[1]This combination portrays my satirical choice in fashion, also laying stress on the fact that I dress for myself, to please myself even at the cost of others not finding me perfect coz hey, I have one life and I’m not going to spend it on worrying about others’ opinions!

So all of you out there, especially teenagers, please  stop dissecting yourself or someone else at the cost of being “Perfect”. Be proud of who you are and where you come from!

Until next post!

Floral Romance


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Welcome monsoons! After a long summer hiatus, its good to hear the pitter patter of rain drops on my window sill. I am not a huge fan of the rains but I do admit that they bring an old world charm to life! The smell of wet mud and fresh flowers is beyond invigorating! Its like you time travel back into your childhood.

I recently purchased a beautiful floral dress from (Bombay) and I thought of creating a post as an ode to the beauty of flowers in monsoons! (Yes, I do a lot of non-sponsored posts as well!)

I specifically love the sleeve detailing on the dress. I styled it with a belt from Zara as well and the most perfect pair of red court heels by NEXT from Jabong. I doubt I’d ever find a better pair of red heels than these. I accessorized the outfit with my Tory Burch sling and completed the look with bright red lips.

Hope you like the look and the pictures.

BTW, the credit for these pictures goes to my Dad who is the most enthusiastic  photographer ever! ❤

Until next post!

What does the word “Girl Boss” mean to you? A girl or a woman who knows what she wants. She who is in control,  taking charge of her own circumstances in work & life. Someone who knows her worth and won’t accept anything less. She is not a “mean girl” in fact, she hates “mean girls.” She is empowering and inspiring to those around her. She kicks ass! I admire women who root for their own tribe and watch each other grow!

The persona of such women is reflected in the way they dress as well! One such outfit that I feel truly captures the essence of a “Girl Boss” is a Pant-Suit. It is the ultimate girlboss aesthetic that doesn’t have to be stuffy or boring. It’s all in how you wear it. Also , what draws me to this outfit is the unique amalgamation of “Power meets Sensuality”.  As much as it is structured, with its clean cuts, it is super feminine too!

Now, you can embrace this style in numerous ways! I chose to go for a “work to night” look and nothing spells it out better than a bright bold color. So when I got the chance to collaborate with one of the coolest high street brand’s splash fashion for their SS17 collection, my heart skipped a beat on finding the perfect electric blue pant-suit and I knew I had to feature this on my blog! It was absolute love at first sight!

This outfit has the most amazing fit, superb cuts and clean lines; just how I had envisioned myself owning a Power suit. There are some outfits which make you feel supreme and confident; this is one of them! Since the color is so enigmatic, it can easily be adorned for a night of revelry!

Since I was already treading the bold line, I decided to style my pant-suit with equally bold red court shoes! I can’t stop gushing over how gorgeous they are! In terms of hair and makeup, I kept my hair sleek and simple with red lips coz there ain’t no rules that I like to follow! You can obviously go for a more subtle option if you choose to.

I loved curating this look and was equally satisfied with how the pictures have come out. My friend/classmate/boss lady who is an amazing Photographer herself has done complete justice to the look!

Hope you’ve enjoyed going through the content and the pictures. Please do share your valuable feedback with me!

Until next post!

Oversized white shirt wonders!


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

One herculean task that all us girls/women face, is “What to wear”! I hate to accept it, but that is the universal truth. No matter how many clothes you have, they are never enough! It becomes even more so difficult when you are a fashion blogger. Creating different content on a regular basis can be a daunting task. But that is the beauty of it! The challenge for a fashion blogger doesn’t lie in buying new stuff every now and then(Of course by then you’ll be broke) but curating varied looks from clothes you already own! You can either tread the safe line or think out of the box.

I like challenging myself every now and then, creating looks which are different yet satisfactorily ME!

Since I am on a month long Summer break, I decided to do a little wardrobe cleaning. I was in a generous mood that day so I thought of re-arranging the husband’s closet as well! Mid-way through the process, I came across a stack of white shirts (yes he is obsessed with white shirts just like me) that he hadn’t worn in a while. That is when my creative juices started running on full gear! I stole one of them and decided to style it in my own way.

I wanted to create a retro-chic look so I wore the mister’s shirt as an off-shoulder top with flared blue denims. I styled the look with a corset belt which is huge on popularity at the moment and wore tangerine heels to add pop of color to the otherwise monochromatic look! I wore oversized nerdy glasses which I believe went quite well with my retro look and carried a grey sued bag with tangerine piping!

Let me add, the mister was quite impressed with the look which meant that I had won half the battle coz he is my biggest critique. While we were scouting for locations, we came across this rusty, stranded road-roller and I knew I had to have this in my frame!

I’d love to know your feedback on this look. Also, please do tell me if you would like to see me styling more looks with an oversized white shirt!

Until next post!

QuakerOats+Milk with Sachin Tendulkar


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Haven’t we all heard the old saying, “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper!”  Trust me, it stands true even today. Breakfast, accurately means break the fast. Since our body doesn’t consume anything after dinner till we wake up the next morning, our body is famished. We need to recharge our battery  which is on low level,  having consumed the energy from last night’s meal.  If your body doesn’t get that fuel from food, you may feel zapped of energy and you’ll be more likely to overeat later in the day.

However, we tend to skip this essential practice considering we are extremely busy accommodating other chores in our daily life. We might not be able to have a lavish spread but a healthy snack sure does make a difference!

Keeping this thought in mind PepsiCo India teamed up with none other than the legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar to hit a master stroke with Quaker Oats+Milk.  As the name suggests, Quaker Oats+Milk is a one-of-a-kind Grain Dairy beverage in India. It is designed as a convenient on-the-go solution to enhance morning nutrition for young Indians leading a hectic lifestyle.  PepsiCo has combined its scientific expertise with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s insights on everyday nutrition needs, to engineer a unique dairy product for India.

Quaker Oats+Milk is an innovation that uses PepsiCo’s patented “SoluOats” technology to blend the goodness of milk with the advantages of fibre and oats, whilst retaining a smooth, milky texture.

Launch: Quaker Oats+Milk was launched in Mumbai on May 16, 2017 by the cricketing icon Sachin Tendulkar and D. Shivakumar, Chairman, PepsiCo India alongwith Deepika Warrier, Vice President- Nutrition Category, PepsiCo India .

Speaking at the launch, master blaster and co-creator of Quaker Oats+Milk, Sachin Tendulkar said, “That straight drive, the pull shot, the upper-cuts and the straight down the ground sixes; all those were only a factor of my preparation. If you’re not well-prepared, you have already lost, and it all starts with a nutritious breakfast. I’m excited with the launch of Quaker Oats+Milk, a product from PepsiCo that I’ve been a part of creating. It’s a great addition to your breakfast table, to give your mornings a head-start, with fibre, calcium, oats and milk; preparing you for the rigours of the day and help you do more with your day.”

The new products are available in two flavors- Almond and Mango. They are priced at INR 30 for a 180 ml Tetra pack. They are fresh, very flavourful and wholesome.  I loved both the flavoured drinks, but the Almond one is my personal favourite.

There is something surreal about an Indian attire. Don’t we all agree? I feel, an Indian woman looks the prettiest in a Traditional Avatar. With multitude designers foraying into the Indian Fashion scene, there is something for each one of us. However, these gorgeous pieces of art come with their huge price tags as well! The heart yearns for them but the mind stops you from burning a hole in your pockets! So what is the fix?

Well, say hello to TheStylease It is High-end e-commerce  rental platform which provides the finest collection of Indian Couture with a snap of your fingers. If you thought premium Indian designers are out of your reach, think again! TheStylease lets you choose outfits that are straight from the runway at a fraction of their original price! All you have to do is, go to their website and follow the instructions to select your outfit. You can’t ask for a better deal than this!

I’ve always endorsed this concept and I feel rental platforms are the need of the hour making perfect sense for the modern, working woman who would rather invest in memories instead of exorbitantly priced clothes.  So no matter what Indian occasion it is, be at the top of your game with TheStylease.

I had the opportunity of collaborating with the brand and selected 3 outfits from 3 different designers. I opted for these outfits keeping in mind the different wedding functions we generally  attend.

Look 1: I chose a Pink and Saffron Lehenga set by VASANSI.  It has a beautiful shaded coral to hot pink silk blouse and net dupatta with gota embroidery over a rich saffron hued embroidered lehenga. It’s perfect for a Shagun or Engagement ceremony. Never before had I worn this color combination and I wonder why! It’s a stunning, fresh and vibrant look. I styled this lehenga set with a pair of Meenakari earrings and necklace.





Look 2: I opted for a Maroon Embroidered Anarkali Set by MANISH MALHOTRA. It is a Maroon georgette anarkali set with maroon palazzo pants and dupatta in champagne zardozi embroidery. There is a reason why Manish Malhotra is known as the king of traditional attire and this gorgeous outfit is proof of it. The intricate embroidery and the rich color is to die for! Since the attire was quite heavy with abundant work, I didn’t feel the need to accessorise it at all! I would love to wear this for a day wedding!



Look 3: Keeping a wedding reception in mind, I selected a Lime Green Off Shoulder Lehenga Set by MAHIMA MAHAJAN. Again, this was one color shade that I hadn’t tried before and it was love at first sight! It has a Lime green off shoulder blouse in crepe with sequins, zardozi and dabka embroidery. It comes with a green lehenga in crepe and green net dupatta in net with an embellished border with tassel hanging. I styled this outfit with chandelier earrings from Minerali Store in Bandra and tied my hair in a high bun.









I had a blast shooting these looks. I hope you enjoy going through the content and the pictures. Please send in your valuable feedback. Would also love to know what you’d like to see on the blog next!

Summer Styling Lookbook- Part 2


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Ola amigos!

Summers have hit us all bad and how! There are days when all I want is to be cooped up in the house, spending time reading, watching NetFlix or simply lazing around! How I wish life was that simple! However, you’ve gotta do what you gotta do! This torrid weather shouldn’t let you shun all the fun that you ought to have this summer. And what better way to begin than to dress right for this season!

This post is the second part of the Summer lookbook. My previous post being all about fresh whites and sky blues, I’ve taken a slight detour and switched to bright hues for this part of the lookbook.

Bright colours instantly uplift your bogged down mood and rejuvenate your energy levels. Just like the previous post, I’ve curated two looks here as well.

Look 1: The color Yellow being synonymous with summers, I had to feature it in my post. So here I’m wearing this canary yellow romper with cutout sleeves from Koovs which spells oodles of fun. It comes with a  self waist-bow so you can either wear it as it is or accessorise with a broad black belt to break the monotony of the outfit. I’ve teamed the yellow romper with colorful tie-up pom-pom sandals to add vibrance to the look!

Yellow romper:

Pom-pom sandals: Zebba Shoes








Look 2: Not even the harshest Sun can let you stay away from your lunch date or an early evening of sangrias with the girls! My pick for such an outing would be a cutesy-casual midi dress! I think Lulu&Sky is going to be my “quora” for all things fashion! Just as always, they never fail to please me. In my second look, I’m wearing a beautiful red midi-dress with a halter back from their collection. I couldn’t have asked for a better attire! Its classy and comfy and can easily take you from day to night occasion.

You can style this midi dress in multitude ways. I decided to style it in two ways for this post, wherein the first look, I’ve teamed the dress with nude strappy block heeled sandals, a white handbag and a silver neckpiece to keep it classy. I kept the second look casual by throwing a chambray shirt over the midi dress with nude ballerinas with bow detailing.

Red midi-dress:

Chambray shirt: Newlook

White hand bag: Charles&Keith

Nude block-heeled sandals: NEXT

Nude ballerinas: ZARA

Sling bag: Forever New

Neck piece: Ritika Sachdeva





So don’t let the weather make you dull. Dress well and shine on!

Hope you’ve liked the summer lookbook styling series. Please feel free to comment and give your feedback!

Until next post!

Summer Styling Lookbook- Part 1


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Figuring out what to get dressed in each morning when your brain is only partially functional  is hard enough. Doing it with the expectation that your entire body is going to transform into a bloated, sweating, frizzled, frazzled mess as soon as you step out of your air-conditioned abode is enough to send you back to bed.

It’s rough out there for anyone trying to project a certain amount of “look” in the summer. It’s all about thinking strategically and taking a few shortcuts that ensure maximum breeziness.

A few pointers in summer styling will take you a long way through.

The first golden rule is to stick to light and bright colours. Yes we all love our blacks and I’m no exception to it and might I add I’ll still end up wearing the colour in this heat; doesn’t mean it’s the most sensible thing to do!

Secondly, stick to natural fibres such as cotton as much as possible. It will give you respite from the merciless heat.

Coming back to today’s post, it is a No-brainer! I’ll be jotting down some cool outfits to help you look stylish in this season. It’s going to be a 2 part lookbook wherein each part will have 2 looks.

Look 1: This summer, don’t be afraid to go a size up! Oversized dressing is a trend that has taken over the fashion forum like a storm. Be it athleisure wear or even dainty pieces, this trend is on its way to rule the roost!

In the first look, I’m wearing this cute oversized pleated dress in the monochrome shades of white and blue! I absolutely adore the pleated detailing on the sleeves making the outfit quite hep! Its super comfortable and breezy making it a perfect summer wear. You can style this outfit with white high-tops and a quirky print sling bag like I have, making it a high street affair. Do not forget to grab your sunnies along.

Oversized pleated dress and sling bag:

High-tops: Puma




Look 2: There isn’t one fashion icon who hasn’t sported this trend on the runway or on the streets. As much as it being overdone, it’s difficult to escape from its aura. If you haven’t guessed it yet, I’m talking about Ruffles. Going by the craze it has created all over, this trend is not going to bite the dust anytime soon.

In the second look, I’ve yet again gone with the same combination as before. Here, I’ve styled a white basic tee with a sky blue ruffled slit skirt. Being a sucker for details, I found the tie upfront on the skirt to be quite interesting. I’ve paired this outfit with a blue sling bag and white sneakers coz as its said, “Once a sneaker-head, always a sneaker-head!”

White tee: HnM

Ruffled skirt: Koovs

White sneakers: Adidas Originals

Sling bag: Michael Kors

Sunnies: Prada



Hope you found the first part of the lookbook useful. Would highly appreciate your thoughts on it. Will be back with the second part soon!

Until next post!

Well Hello Spring! But if the soaring temperatures are anything to go by, we are well looking at a furnace-like summer! As much as I like putting on my skinny jeans or a bodycon dress, these days it’s all about comfort wear!  Sustainable and breathable fashion is the need of the hour!  Fabrics like cotton, mull and khadi are going to be your saviours in this scorching heat!

One such label which caters  to all these essential facts is The Loom They have an eclectic mix of understated yet exquisite garments.

I’m a huge hoarder of contemporary, organic garments with Indian influences and The Loom doesn’t fail me  at all. Each of their products is beautifully handcrafted by Indian artisans from all over the country. From bright hues to earthy tones, they have it all!

In this post, you’ll find me wearing a Light Blue Khadi Handblock Printed Dress from their collection called Nazakat. The powder blue contrasted with red block printed floral motifs is quite refreshing and soothing to the eyes this spring. It has a flowy silhouette which is apt for this weather. You will find a bow detailing at the back which gives the outfit an interesting edge.

I love taking the earthy route while styling such organic outfits, hence I’ve styled this khadi dress with silver jhumkis and juttis. In terms of makeup, I’ve kept the look muted with hints of mauves and browns and a dash of drama(If you can see it in the pictures).

So for all those who want to invest in fuss free, versatile clothing, The Loom is your calling!

Hope you like this look. Please send in your feedback as they mean a lot to me!

Until next post!

Hey Guys,

Hope this week is treating you well. Bidding adieu to winters has never been easy especially in Bombay where if you are lucky, you will be blessed with a couple of nippy nights and a handful of cozy mornings. The heart desires to put your best foot forward in your winter essentials, however not all of us are so fortunate.

So this post is going to be my final ode to winter layering. If you have been following my blog, I’m sure you’ll be aware of the fact that my fashion sensibilities  juggle between all things dainty and sporty. I find it absolutely liberating to infuse athleisure wear into mainstream fashion. I love the fact that a lot of Indian labels are supporting and promoting sporty-luxe and one such label is Lulu & Sky.

I cannot begin to tell you all how impressed I am with this label. Their collection resonates with the word ATHLEISURE. Each garment is unique and contemporary. It is designed for the hip and modern woman who dares to play and experiment with unique silhouettes and edgy styles. Their collection not only includes apparel but also beautiful bags, exclusively designed shoes and accessories.

In this post, I am sporting a black mesh dress with detailed zippers and pleats which is edgy  and sporty-chic. I wanted to create a day look so, I’ve teamed this dress with black sneakers from their collection which are super classy. You can also pair this dress with studded gladiator heels and rock them for a night out. To give a wintery feel to the outfit, I’ve accessorised the mesh dress with a hot pink scarf from the E-commerce website Woollen Treats. They specialize in the most exquisite hand-knitted scarves made from the finest wool. You can check out their collection given in the description below. To complement the edgy attire, I went ahead with a smoked-out look with bright pink lips.

I sincerely hope you like the look. Let me know how you feel about this post and keep the love flowing.

Until next post ❤
