The last couple of month’s been really crazy for me. Back to back shoots and back-to-back events. Not that I'm complaining but sometimes it really gets to my nerves. Sleep deprivation to not having meals on time.
But things are finally getting back to normal. I've been able to manage time diligently and health wise things are pretty much looking up.

More than anything else I'm really excited to spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve with my family. It's been a year now since I last saw them, about time now to reunite and spend some quality time.

So now, coming back to these lovely images I shot with Rawky for Aeropostale collection. I was amongst the few lucky people to have seen their entire collection before the launch. And being one of the members of the Aerospostale Style Council is another added bonus.

Aerospostale's style is youthful, fun and versatile without being kiddish or over the top trendy. And to top it all off, the price points are hard to beat. I loaded up on tanks, jogger pants, slim fit denims and a lovely quilted fur jacket. I was so keen on showing you guys the versatility of their collection, hence these three looks -
* Yoga session
* Ready to go Semi-Formal look
* Urban Bohemian Chic outfit.

Where To Shop: Wholesale7

Just right when I was looking for a place to shop for my winter wear, I came across this ridiculously amazing e-commerce website, Wholesale7.com, with ridiculously amazing collections and price points. I was like “Are these for real”?

Initially I was really reluctant to shop, but after browsing tons of clothes and shoes from the site I took the risk and went ahead and ordered a single item from them just to satisfy my own qualms. I mean there are so many grounds to consider before going ahead and typing out my debit card details. First there is the legitimacy of the company, secondly whether the product is as real as seen on screen and lastly the quality of the products.

I mostly shop online and I have to say that now I’ve become quite an expert on judging whether a particular online store is legit or not. But I’m never too sure, so my first order is always single piece and I make sure I don’t indulge on expensive items. It’s mostly between $20-$30 or less.

So yeah… the first product that I purchased from wholesale7 was this sexy pair of lace-up anklet hollow out heels, which cost me $14.10.  It was my obsession to own a pair of laced-up heels for a while now and at last I’m a proud owner of a pair.

Shipping took longer than anticipated and the quality of the shoe was pretty much decent for the price I paid.

Fall LookBook: Neutral Palette

It's that time of the year again: festivities, weddings, family gatherings, reunions etc. There's nothing like new-season deliveries to inspire a clean slate, providing the perfect opportunity to focus on gentler pieces for the wardrobe such as easy-to-wear maxi dresses that suits any occasion's dress code. So it's decided then, the neutral palette will launch the fall look book for Fashion & I blog. We would want to work our way up playing with colors starting from the safest desired color tones and hues to brightest color possible. Hopefully we will be able to achieve and create looks/outfit for the readers to get inspired from.

The reason why I started blogging is because I love fashion. Fashion is something that continuously keeps changing and it has the ability to explore and transform with no restrictions or limitations. A particular look can turn into whatever you want it be – completely depending upon creativity and imaginations.

This blog has given me tremendous opportunity and platforms; a stage to independently display my creativity.

VDOT and Viacom 18 Consumer Products Inspire a New Fashion Statement with Roadies collection by VDOT

Earlier this month TeamFAI attended the launch of The Roadies VDot Collection by Van Heusen in collaboration with Viacom 18 held at "The Grand" hotel here in New Delhi. You guys must have seen the live snippets during the show on my Instagram and Twitter handles. The ramp was graced by the ex-roadies like Ayaz Ahmed, Gurmeet Singh, Varun Sood and Nikhil Sachdeva. Other than the conventional ramp walk the ex-roadies entertained the guest with freestyle dance moves. The show went to a full throttle when the twins Raghu Ram and Rajiv Laxman made the killer entrance. The epic moment was when Rannvijay blazed in on a bike with his swag on fleek like a true roadie. And that for me was the icing on the cake. With all of them donning numbers from the Roadies Autumn Winter 2015, VDot collection the fashion metre was sent soaring to a true roadie style. Definitely, a collection cut out for the young and fearless.

The collection is inspired by the country's longest running youth reality show on the country's biggest youth platform MTV – Roadies.  This first-of-a-kind collaboration of a well-known brand from the entertainment industry with a leading apparel brand is expected to heighten up the fashion quotient of Indian youth across the country through a range of edgy, exciting, contemporary and fashionable merchandise.

With the launch of this collection, VDOT brings to life a biker centric lifestyle that is associated with Roadies. The collection features infusion of elements that co-exist to create a sense of functionality, yet are unique in design. Detailing like coated biker Jackets, denim-leather mix and metal embellishments give the collection a grunge-biker feel. The addition of bike denims with reflective tape details and reflective branding add to the ergonomic functional appeal. T-shirts and shirts with strong directional prints add the much needed sense of drama to the collection.

Are you ready to join the H&MBalmaiNation?
After winning hearts with its launch at the Select city Mall just a few weeks ago H&M is here with its most awaited annual activity, the designer Collaboration. Being its 18th designer collaboration the excitement metre is at its peak for this high street giant as they join hands with French Designer Oliver Rousteing’s Balmain Collection. Delhi witnessed the BalmainxH&M collection today and how interesting is it to have your dream ensembles turn into reality and become a part of the Balmain Nation? You already know it's time to strike off some things off your style wish list. Consider it as blessing from the fashion gods to own those items without having to burn the kind of holes you would have otherwise burnt. All you got to do is get ready for some opulence in your outifits.

Balmain is known for its intricately hand crafted designs and embellishments and the collection has been recreated and remixed with H&M sensibilities but without losing its trademark qualities and designs.  The clothes are an exquisite mix of conventional with high French couture and one can see and feel the Balmain kind of extravagance in all the numbers. Every item stands out in its own unique way with the Balmain DNA totally in place and it’s safe to say subtlety is not really their style plan. From velvet jackets, bodycon dresses, military inspired jackets, leather touches, golden embroideries and sequinned dresses there is nothing that can be overlooked in the collection in terms of opulence.

The look that has been created for this shoot is one in which the Balmain factor is most apparent in the accessories. The vertically monochromed midi skirt teamed with the crop top with golden thread works bring about a casual touch. The Balmain streak in the look has been raised by the golden rope like neckpiece and wait, if you have been following the campaign then you would have seen Balmain Nation’s face Kendell Jenner rocking it. The exquisiteness and the work in the clutch reveals the attention to detailing and also gives the look the sophistication it requires. The black booties worn here is from the classic H&M collection and has been incorporated into the look to remind how high fashion items can easily blend in with high street items. Lastly, the belt with a go

If you have been closely following the celebrity Balmain brigade then it's now your turn to be followed. Get on your mark to go back to the H&M queue once more, the only thing you might have to leave behind this time maybe your austerity measures.
