Glam-Grunge

How can you create interesting everyday looks without spending a dime?

Well, all you need is few borrowed pieces from your dad's closet or your boyfriend's or just clean up your brother's closet for once! I was surprised to find interesting pieces from their wardrobe and when incorporated in my everyday wear I achieved this Masculine-Meets-Feminine Style. By mixing these two styles (masculine-feminine) you get effortless edginess, yet polished and well put together.

I paired my vintage dress with this borrowed quilted sleeveless jacket from my brother and added the over-sized belt from my dad's closet. I've balanced the look by throwing a statement clutch and completed the look with my current fav boots.

Oh! BTW all these images were shot by my loving cousin sister who has never held a DSLR in her life. Kudos to her for doing such an amazing job.

#24HoursInTheCity : New Delhi

Lee Jeans Campaign #24hoursInTheCity was one of the best and most exciting work I've done last year and it definitely highlights my year 2015. Honestly, this campaign #24hoursInTheCity took me to a whole new level of intimate journey that I've never experienced in my 9 years stay here in Delhi. Having said that, without a doubt Delhi definitely is my second home.

Below are the images along with few narrations covering

#24hoursInTheCity  #RiseWithYourCity  8:00-10:30 AM
Chandni Chowk is one of the oldest and busiest market in Old Delhi. By the time I got there the road and the streets were pretty crowded considering how early I was. I'm a regular Chandni Chowk hustler since I shop most of my photoshoot props from here. An early walk through the streets was mesmerizing. It gave me a different picture and experience altogether.

Featured: FEMINA January 2016

In these uncertain times, layering has been a common theme amongst the fall/winter looks. Other than keeping one’s body warm, layering is that one trend that’s experimental, fun and you can go totally crazy. I’m such a crazy fan of layering that even in hot summer I somehow incorporate my everyday wear with layers (obviously thin and lighter clothes). Winter is one time that I’m allowed to go all cray cray with my wardrobe. Taking full advantage of the situation, I’ve layered up my look for the recent feature for Femina, India. A shirt dress worn over a waistcoat and an oversized coat, topped it off with tartan scarf and quirky sunnies. All in all, the oversized coat is a must have, if you don’t own one about time you get one for yourself.

#InVogueEyewear

Keeping up with fashion is an ongoing challenge. It is difficult to keep up with fashion trends that are on the fast track, with new products/trends updating every season. It’s no secret that accessories are the best way to easily (and often inexpensively) update your wardrobe each season, but they’re also great for keeping the outfits interesting and stylish. The one accessory that I always carry with me before leaving home is sunglasses, they’re a year-round staple. And yes, I own around 30 of them! Crazy? Maybe. Blame it on my obsessions for sunglasses. I can’t really help it. I believe that everyone must own one great pair of sunnies!

I was totally stoked when Vogue Eyewear approached me to be a part of the campaign. I was one of the 6 bloggers that was chosen for this particular campaign #InVogueEyewear. Right when I was sinking in all the excitement I was told that the ace photographer Atul Kasbekar will be shooting us, the make-up guru Elton Fernandez is doing our hair and makeup and the stylist Rishi Raj put our looks together. I was always a fan of Naina Redhu and when I saw her at the venue capturing BTS, the amount of fun and excitement were amplified. And when I’m saying amplified I meant it literally!

I was in good hands and in good care. The whole experience has been just like a dream and I couldn’t be happier. 


Each blogger was given a particular theme and accordingly Rishi Raj had picked up the looks for us. I wore a fringe mini skirt, a black leather jacket and a black cut out booties. I chose this blue colored Sunnies as it signifies boldness, fearlessness, a trendsetter and definitely not a follower. Somebody, who knows how to have fun and loves to experiment, don’t I look like a total 80s badass rocker chick? 

Here’s the images photographed by Atul Kasbekar

70s Nostalgia

For modern woman pants have become an indispensable part of the business style, as well as the casual and grunge. It's amazing to see how the wide leg pants get so much attention and love from the fashion community time and time again (70s Nostalgia). Sure it's pretty intimidating to add volumes on the bottom especially if you're shorter in height like me. But once we figure out our body type, assembling a look is just a piece of cake.

Honestly I've seen countless number of people wearing wide-legs but sadly out of 10 people only 4 or less have succeeded in pulling it off. The 3% of the people happens to be tall hence whatever has been thrown on their body automatically looks flawless and effortless and the 1% short/petite group knows exactly their body types hence they choose and assemble their outfit accordingly.  To my horror the 6% of the people either blindly follow the trends or they still don't know their body type and tends to go wrong in all the effort they make.

Today I've paired my favorite low-waisted woolen wide leg trousers with a black crop top and a semi fitted tweed blazer (borrowed from BF). Since I veer more towards petite frame, a strappy 4 inch heels works perfectly fine, giving an illusion of long and elongated leg.

Simpler is better. Hence I skipped on jewelry and instead added this blue colored heels from Charles & Keith and a Roll-Up clutch from CORD to add a certain element of chicness.
There, a perfect everyday outfit, a combination of masculine and femininity. The key secret for the petite structure to look effortlessly chic while donning wide-legs is to wear a pair of high heels.
