Rajasthan, a colorful wonder

I have never written a travelogue before, nor am I writing one now 😝. My interest is in fashion and so I can talk about fashion while travelling ☺️ How to travel in style. 
Rajasthan (in India) , is known for its traditional culture. You can see fully clad women wearing lehenga covering their heads and wearing bangles that goes up to their shoulders. While men wear colorful turban on their heads and plain white kurta pyjama.

Not belonging to that culture, you definitely cannot adopt their looks to the fullest, but for fun you surely want to be a part of that tradition. 


So I visited Rajasthan in summers. As soon as I stepped out of the plane, I understood this trip wan’t easy for me. The sun was so bright and it drained out all my energy.


The first day I wanted to simply explore the city, so I wore my lazy jeans and a vibrant color top with sneakers.


 The narrow lanes and such crowded market area was scary for me at first. So I quickly had a sneak peak of how the market area looks like and rushed to my hotel. I noticed that the dressing style of people there was too colorful. There were stalls with colorful bangles and shops with colorful bags decorated with tiny mirrors. Another amazing thing I liked were the footwears knows as “juttis”. These juttis were flat bellies decorated with stitches and mirrors.


I had kept the next day for exploring the royalty of the city. The palaces and forts of the once upon a time, Kings. 


So for this day, I also wanted to dress up royally and dress up like a princess 👸🏻


I wore a plain purple skirt with golden border, a matching dupatta and a pink blouse. (Globus store) The dress seemed apt for the city however, I was still worried about the heat outside 😅.

Well, for girls heat and cold doesn’t matter so I dressed up confidently with my finest jewellery and fancy sandals.

For jewellery I wore golden color earrings (shop cj) and golden bangles (forever 21).


As for makeup I kept it minimal with a black eyeliner, bright color lipstick and a small bindi.


Since I knew I Will have to walk there a lot, I chose to wear flat comfortable sandals (by Catwalk)


My trip was only for two days, but was amazing. I was happy with the decision of visiting Rajasthan and was happy with all my photos and my fab look in them😋😍.



Happy summers 😊

It’s been months since I wrote blog. Have been busy with lots of things 🙄So if I look back, lots of things have come in fashion and gone out of fashion, with change in seasoN

Now it’s time to catch on the Summer style 😍

So I can see old 80’s style is back again.

-Off shoulder type 

 

-And loose and frilly sleeves

-Frilly skirts

So this summer is not about skin tight tops and skinny jeans and sleeveless tops. It is more about wearing lose comfys with slip ons and enjoying the heat 😊

Happy summers!! ☺️☺️

Glimpse of 2016 

2016 has been a year of truth which gave pain and in return made me strong. 

In all this hassle of life, one thing remained- My positivity. And my positive attitude.

I have always been the one who wipes tears, stands up confident, put a makeup, wear gorgeous clothes and smile 😊

Well, to focus more on my fashion bit of life, here is the glimpse of it ☺️

No words 


It’s so difficult to collect the pieces of ur own…. 

Difficult is the name for life, a name for love.Live wit it and smile with holding ‘dem tight.

Waiting for efforts and waiting for hope.. Even wen u knw he Wil fail

Subtle yet Bold

It is not always about artistic designs on nails. It is about the colors and how well you can carry it. I would like to share a simple yet bold style of designing your nails. 

A golden shimmer nail paint is the most attractive and attention grabbing paint that goes with all kinds of light and dark shades and colors.

Color all the nails with matte paints and color only one nail with golden shimmer. This breaks the monotony of the usual nail paints and brings vibrancy and life in your look.


You can either choose to color the thumb or the ring finger with golden shimmer. The thumb often gets hidden while the ring finger is noticeable at the first sight.


The best part of this style is that you can wear it in office as well as in parties. It can be carried subtly as well as boldly 😊.

Sale! Sale! Sale!

The best time of the year. Apparently! which is now every third month of the year.


But I really wonder!!
Is sale season really exciting like before? Do consumers wait for sale season to buy all the desired products then? Are the retail companies watching profit due to sale? Are the companies really slashing their product price during sale for the benefit of the customers? Is retail really booming due to sale?

The answer to all the above questions is NO.

Neither is the sale exciting for customers now nor is it doing any benefit to retail industry. Infact, the reason that we are having sale season every second or third month of the year is because the retail market is suffering major loss. Talking of apparels, fabrics, furniture, jewellery, watches, IT and other retail related industries all of them have suffered a huge loss with the entry of e-commerce business. Infact, many of the brands like mi are doing online business only. They have taken a decision of not entering retail market.

Sale season is for a boost in sales for every company and also for the mall that they are in. It is not only a challenge to companies to sell their products but also a challenge for the mall management to engage with the customers and ensure maximum footfalls in the mall. Because of such chanllenge we have offers like, flat 50% sale in the entire mall.
This really is an attractive offer but, do customers really get attracted and visit the malls on such days.

If we look at the facts, then yes people go to malls at such  offer period and malls do get thousands of footfalls. The mall does get benefitted by no. of parking tickets sold and the advertisement spaces sold to the brands all around in the mall. But do the brands really benefit by such promotion?
Well, I happened to visit a mall in Mumbai that offered a flat 50% offer in the entire mall. At first I was reluctant to go thinking of the crowd and the pushing and pulling in the stores, but then I decided to go and check out few things for myself. As some of the brands like M&S, Baggit, Vero Moda, AND, Body Shop were also giving flat or upto 50% discount.

It was not just the promotion by the mall every individual brand took the effort of inviting their customers through SMS, Mails, Radio Ads and Newspaper ads.

Well, like the others even I was excited about the sale and made a list of the things I wanted to buy; bags, shoes, shirts, jackets, watch and fashion jewellery. Excitedly, I went to the mall with a friend and wanted to celebrate Girl’s shopping day out!!

We thought that the entering the mall would be a night mare, but to our surprise it was a piece of cake. Then we thought of checking out apparels first, without any pushing and snatching we could easily explore the merchandise. In fact, waiting time in the queue for changing room was really less. I felt I really didn’t feel so relaxed ever to shop during sale.
We both went together to almost all the shops in the mall and what did we buy? A face pack from forest essentials  and a top from Lifestyle That’s it!!
After almost five hours of roaming around in get mall we bought only two things. And to tell you truly, they both were non-sale items.

IMG_2007.JPG
I looked around the mall was not crowded like once it used to be during sale season. Infact many stores were empty or having hardly one or two customers.

Talking about the merchandise and how the SIS retail outlets were, they didn’t seem like large format stores in huge fancy malls, instead they seemed like street shopping stalls in Linking Road, Bandra. The merchandise was just dumped over counters at different sections and made it unpleasing for me to dig for clothes from that lot. The sight itself was horrifying. When I searched for clothes hung on the racks, I fairly concluded that those were very old clothes seeing at he condition of the clothes. Also most of the sale items were not even as per the latest fashion or design. It was majorly about dead fashion!! Some of the clothes were even had holes and we’re torn. Many of them could be used as a mop in Indian homes.

Then I saw few counters that were really well kept and was unvisited even by a single mosquito. I was close to explore the counter and there I saw the board saying “NEW ARRIVALS”. Well, it really didn’t make sense to come for shopping on a main sale day and buy from fresh items. However, I decided to check them out since nothing in sale was as per my taste. The merchandise at the new arrivals were as per the latest fashion trend and were kept in proper condition. So I picked up a top and bought it 🙃


Then we went store to store from brands to brands looking out for something worth buying, but the experience was quite disappointing.

Even the price of merchandise in sale seemed inflated and maybe were being sold on their actual MRP.

The sale season was really not offering sale!! Infact, it was not just us but when I looked around I could see tired and disappointed faces. In my earlier shipping experience in saw season, I could see people carrying 10-20 pair of clothes and standing in trial room queue for around 45 min to an hour. But this time, I could see women looking around for something, carrying only 2-4 clothes for trial.. Quite shocking Indeed!

Such an unexpected change of response towards sale have certainly taken the retail industry down. In future, the brand will have to think seriously about giving fair discounts in sale and to give proper merchandise too. The customers are no longer inclined towards touch and feel concept if they are getting same thing at better price through electronic mediums sitting at home.

+size style 

A friend of mine inspired me to write this blog. Major concern of many females is how to look stunning after gaining weight post pregnancy. That is the period when it is difficult to lose weight as well.Well, I personally feel that everyone is beautiful tall or short, thin or fat, one just needs to wear good dress and carry oneself well.

Plus size women also can try on all kinds of beautiful clothes that are in vogue.

1. black gowns – black makes one look slimmer. Wear a wide neck black dress and adorn your look with a beautiful neck piece


2. Flair pleated Skirts – this is currently in vogue. This dress can be adopted in the form on skirt or frock


3. Denim- denim with a loose shirt or a body hugging top. 


4. Blazer – For a semi formal look, wear a blazer with denim and for a formal wear with a trouser. These a Forever in styles


5. Shrugs- shrugs have lately gained a lot of place in fashion. Men and women both have widely accepted this style. It can be worn with dresses, skirts, denim or trousers
