Mix & Match







Tank- American Apparel, Shorts- Colaba(old), Cardigan- Forever New, Brogues- Zara, Tights- Vero Moda, Bag- Zara, Necklace- Forever21, Rings- Aldo,Forever New

Mixing prints can be a risky path to take. I frankly don't take this route too often but when I do, I keep a few things in mind which may help you a little if you wish to try it.

- Start by mixing 2 prints first. Once you become a pro at it you can go for 3, 4 or whatever suits you.

- Make sure one print is bolder than the other. For example my polka dot shorts are more prominent than the stripped tank top. This will help in balancing the entire look.

- Try taking contrasting shades to create a nice visual effect. But make sure they compliment each other.

- Choose one colour as your base colour and add or subtract a few layers. Like for me, I added the cardigan and tights.

- Last, accessorize with neutral colours like tan, nude, beige, etc.

And voila.
Don't worry if you don't get it right the first time! Keep trying ladies. Hope this helps you in mixing & matching.

P.S : - Happy Republic Day to all my Indian viewers! :)

Neonic







Shirt- Colaba(Similar), Skirt- Zara, Necklace & Spike ring- Styldrv, Spiral ring- Aldo, Shoes- Zara, Bag- Mango, Sunglasses- Rayban

I think neon yellow & black is my new favourite combination. I mean I practically love black with everything but this has got to be the winner. With Spring coming closer, I have started collecting a lot more bright, neon and pastel colours.

I don't usually address issues on my blog solely since I try and restrict it to fashion. But I think a little wisdom here & there never hurts. I recently came across an individual who disregarded my opinion only because I was too young. To me that was very baffling for that's not the kind of environment I've grown up in. Besides I had no idea there was an age limit to having opinions. I wouldn't even mind if someone counter questioned mine with a valid reason but using my age as an excuse is just undesirable. Oh well, that's not preventing me from declaring mine and it shouldn't stop you either. There will always be people who may attempt to put you down mainly because being humble & open minded is not their best trait. For me, having an opinion is very significant as that is what makes you, you. With this thought, have a happy week!

F - Squared: Le Pain Quotidien


Blazer- Marks&Spencer(recent sale), Tank- Zara, Jeggings- Pieces, Shoes- Aldo, Ring- Hill road, Cuff- Styldrv

S & I recently went for a casual rendezvous to Le Pain Quotidien. This video is a mix of our favorites - Fashion being mine, food being his.We thought we could show you a little from the time we spent there. This was our second time there and we loved it even more. The food, the ambience, the people it's all so soothing. If you live in Mumbai or are planning to visit soon, you must check this out because the Belgium dark chocolate waffles are to die for.

I wore a light weight coral red blazer which I recently scored at the Marks&Spencer sale. Can you believe it? It was a complete surprise. This is my first ever clothing piece from there but I absolutely love it! I paired it with a cropped tank from Zara and some jeggings. I am trying to get some use out of my blazers while the weather permits me to.
This was just another way of showing you what I wore & I hope you guys enjoyed watching it! See you soon!

How to : Wear Neon Lips


Jumper- Zara, Lipstick- Nyx Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink 


I know this is a little early considering spring is not even close but I have been obsessed with wearing bright/neon colors so I just thought this could help you. Here's what you need to do :-

Step 1 : - Use any lip scrub to get rid of the dead skin. The one I am using is from Lush in Bubblegum. If you don't own any lip scrub, don't fret. Just mix some olive oil or baby oil with sugar and lightly rub it on your lips. It will give you the same result.

Step 2 : - Apply your favourite lip balm or lip conditioner to moisturize and prep your lips for the lipstick. The lipstick that I am going to use can be drying specially during winters. So i'd suggest you apply a considerate amount.

Step 3 : - Now outline your lips with a concealer. Make sure to blend it well around the lip area making sure you leave no lines or patches. All the attention is going to be on your lips so you can't leave the surrounding area unattended. And this will also brighten up the area making it look flawless.

Step 4 : - Take your favourite neon/bright lipstick and apply it carefully on to your lips. The lipstick I am using is a Nyx Matte lipstick in the shade Shocking Pink. I have now become confident enough to apply it directly from the tube but if you don't have a steady hand yet, I'd recommend you use a lip brush to get that perfection. Make sure to cover the side area of your lips. I personally would leave them matte but if you're a gloss girl go ahead and dab some.

And now? Get out and rock it! Beware of the stares! I hope this helped you all. Have a happy and bright day.

Pink is like therapy








Shirt- Zara, Skirt- Roxy(dress worn as skirt),Necklace- Styledrive, Bag- Aldo, Shoes- Steve Madden, Belt- Colaba, Ring- Aldo


It's crazy how colours can change your mood sometimes. I am not a very pink person. I love my black, white, greys & blues. But there is something about pink that tugs me to it every once in a while. And whenever I do end up adorning it, it makes me happier. I have no idea what colour therapy has to say, I make my own rules you see. I hope you guys are having a happy and fun filled start to this New Year. All the sales have started earlier this year. Don’t you see it? It’s a sign of a better year!
