 THE PUNK style
     - STYLE 101 -











More often, I like to add an element of punk to my look. I have always been naturally attracted to the rock style of the 70s, the kohled eyes, bold nail colors, leather jackets, short black skirts. studded shoes, ear cuffs. I remember the time when I had even dyed my hair red in my college days- a few strands though. I love to paint my nails in black very often, infact, I always carry a black nail color in my bag. My shopping from my last trip to Goa included a lot of metal jewelry, earcuffs and unusual jewelry which I almost wear every other day. The DIY torn jeans, loose black Tees rule my wardrobe. Also, I've been collecting a  lot of rosaries and cross pendants for quite a few years. The love never ends. Imagine, I wear them to work too! The pictures in this post are all my favorites. Notice the safety pins on the jacket, thick eye brows, rings, the hair. Love them all!

            BLENDERS PRIDE FASHION TOUR HYD 2014                                       EVENTS







MONICA DOGRA



 


NARGIS FAKHRI







HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SHOW: COLLECTION SHOWCASED BY DESIGNERS PANKAJ & NIDHI, NAMRATA JOSHIPURA
LIVE PERFORMANCE BY MONICA DOGRA

Dark, bold, mysterious and glamorous,
the Seagram's Blenders Pride Fashion Tour is known for all of these that set this show apart from the rest of the fashion events that happen through out the year. 
When it comes to dressing up for such events, we girls usually take time to zero down on one outfit. However, it did not take much time for me to decide what I wanted to wear. I chose a black long jacket with a crop top and fitted trousers. I threw on a gold toned neckpiece to highlight the outfit and completed the look with black pointed pumps. I tried experimenting with my hair to make them look different from how I usually wear them - open and wavy.
The show featured two outstanding collections by designers Pankaj & Nidhi and Namrata Joshipura.  While  Pankaj & Nidhi's collection was inspired by watery hues and mirrors, Namrata Joshipura's collection was about geometic patterns, texturing and beautiful embellishments. The star of the show was actress and singer Monica Dogra whose live performance with her band called shaa'ir + func set the stage on fire while the models walked the ramp. I have always been a fan of this stylish dusky lady and to watch her live was a treat for me. Actress Nargis Fakhri sizzled on the stage walking the ramp as the show stopper for Pankaj & Nidhi.
Excuse me for the clarity of the pictures for all of these were taken with my mobile since my camera went awry last minute. Grr!! Never mind! There's always a next time.

THE BEST OF MARQUEE| VERO MODA

-STYLE 101-






The  Marquee collection by Karan Johar for Vero Moda is the spotlight of the season.  Be it a brunch, date or a party, it has something for every occasion. And if you were to ask me my favorite, it has to be 'The Future Posh' Collection for it's got just the right amount of bling  required to make you stand out! And if you want to know how I would style these pieces, here's how:
1.Shimmer Skirt: Pair it with a  shirt/tank in white, black or burgundy if you like experimenting. This one's my favorite piece and I think every girl should have something like this in her wardrobe. 

2.Shimmer Knit Dress: This dress is perfect for a formal evening party or a date. Pair it with a chunky necklace or keep it minimal with a bold lipstick and burgundy pumps, You can even throw over a leather jacket and pair it with ankle boots for a casual look.  

3.Shimmer Silver Blazer: Team it with the shimmer skirt of the same range or any black fitted jacket or pants.  Complete the look with a pair of sexy black stilettoes. You might want to wear it on the New Year's Eve!

'Dress to Impress' says Vero Moda! I Say 'Dress for the Applause!
