Dressing Up for Fashion Week – What I wore for Lakme Fashion Week

Well yeah technically it is a late post , but who can time fashion because I am more of a classics girl. Also I hate to play by the rules when it comes to dressing-up for going  any where. I am more of a mood dresser, Believe you may not , but I never really plan my wardrobe for fashion week, never ever, I go with the flow and of course my mood that day as in what do I feel like wearing.

The perks of being a blogger also include changing at the Fashion Week if something Designer catches your fancy, yes and I am writing it out aloud that I love my job… actually is it even a job…. its my love for fashion that became my profession and needless to say I wake up everyday felling like  wanting to doing my job… I can’t thank the universe enough for culminating my fashion journey into this….

I am inspired to write the post for, I feel a lot of people who don’t go to Fashion Weeks so often feel overwhelmed with the idea of going. The number one question I get to hear from anyone I know and if they reach out to me when they are going to Fashion week is that what to wear….. My answer is always the same….whatever you feel like… because its fashion week…..

Fashion Weeks have such amazing vibes I feel , you could choose to be anyone there… you could be quirkiest or most basic, your fashion expressions are judged yet not judged. I love hanging out there and just observing people. You see all kinds, the ones who really try too hard to be cool and the ones who are really super cool…  I can’t even even describe the mood.

I would like to believe that I don’t try too hard and this post is all about that. I am sharing my outfit images from all through the week , what I wore , how I styled . I always keep it basic and about me , how I feel like , I don’t become a different person just because its Fashion Week. Trust me I even say the same sloppy jokes there…… hahahhaa…..!!!

Day 1

My friend and one of the most talented new designers Banjaaran was showcasing her Designs as she had been Chosen as one of the Grazia’s Best Upcomig Designers.  Mehandee is an amazing shoe designer who has now also launched her clothing label too, she had brought with her a Banjaaran dress for me  that I paired with my distressed jeans and my super comfy boots , with my Round sunglasses and voila I was fashion week ready. PS: I had written a Blog piece on how cool was the Banjaaran Label was, read here


BTW thats her with me and I am super happy and proud of her here and I completely loved the dress she gifted me.

Day 2: Sustainable Fashion Day

As I write this piece I have suddenly realised that I have super talented friends. Next on is the linen Saree by Nadiya Paar , Megha my lovely friend whose brand it is, designs these very earthy and sustainable linen Sarees that I am a big fan of, intact I did a blog piece on her Sarees and how to Drape them differently here… So in case you haven’t noticed the Bag, shoes and the sunnies remain same…. I told you I am not trying too hard kind of girl…..very basic…. because that was the mood I was in. Just threw in my favourite red lipstick and mismatched the saree with my custom made blouse….. and voila I was fashion week ready…..

Day 3

I wanted to cheer for one of my favourite silk saree designers at his show, Shailesh Singhania so I decided to wear one his sarees , I paired it with my stripped off shoulder top, silver jhumkis and tied my hair in a bun with a middle parting. Mind you the bag and shoes remained same….and I guess so did my red lipstick look from day before…

Day 4

I took my White shirt dress for another spin….yeah I did , if you had been following my posts this makes it 4th way of styling it. I wore a green leather Kate Spade skirt and layered it with Organza jacket from Scotch & Soda. Well I must have been mood of sunnies change that day, so from larger round ones I shifted to smaller round ones… hahhahahha…..I must add that same shoes and bag went for another round at LFW….

I had been under the weather all through the week, but it was fashion week and I wouldn’t miss it for a thing , at least till I could manage my energies and health to be working for me I was pulling through. It all took toll on me and I couldn’t attend the last day , was majorly sick for about 10 days after that.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and how I styled very simple street style looks. The whole Idea to write this blog was to inspire you all to experiment a bit without loosing the essence of who you are. Fashion week or no Fashion week….have fun dressing up and never ever try to fit in ………

Simple Skin Care Tips to Follow this Diwali

Hello there my lovelies … I absolutely love this time of the year …. Do you also feel the nip of the festivities in the air just like I do ?

It is the festival month and calls for celebrations galore. Playing dress-up is the part and parcel of everything festivals in our culture and it’s the time of the year when you want to look your best …… not that you don’t want to look your best any other time of the year…. hahahahha ….. It’s just that this time of the year is just so special !

I had been so busy lately that I didn’t have time to put together my wardrobe or accessories for Diwali night and all the other shenanigans that come with Diwali , parties, having guests over ,celebrations, going to people’s houses with gifts and receiving a whole lot of them when they come over . oh yes ! ….I am shameless in accepting that I love Diwali gifts and I love getting them as much as I love going shopping for Diwali gifts .

So it just so happened that I was playing dressup …. and I got into the mood of festivities and I pulled out my Indian Wear from my wardrobe and started to mix-and-match , you know that right !! that’s what I do best ……..what to do I cannot get enough of mixing and matching and I am happy to announce that all my outfits , my statement necklaces , my bangles even my sandals are ready already.

What next needs to prepped …. yeah you guessed it right… Skin ….

Our skin is our best accessory nothing can match a glowing skin. Right ain’t I.

So one of my favourites is the VLCC Haldi Chandan Facial Kit, which is a simple DIY facial kit . What I like most about it that it’s got everything from cleanser , to the massage cream , scrub and the pack….Making it so easy for me to use it plus it’s so gentle on my skin, leaving skin refreshed and healthy looking. My skin is always happy after using it .

Also very important for skin is to have a good night sleep . You have to make sure that you catch up with atlleast 6 to 7 hours of good beauty sleep so that your skin looks healthy and fresh.

Besides a good beauty sleep , always ….. always remember to take your make-up off . No matter how tired you are after a long day or a late night or feeling lazy after a plain lazy day …. just make sure you remove any trace of makeup from your face . Clean face ensures pores wouldn’t be clogged and your skin would look healthier. Also Use a good hydrating moisturiser or a serum before sleeping for a happy skin.

Also very important is to drink a lot of water . During the Diwali festival we tend to do go overboard with the whole eating out thing and eating a lot of things that you don’t usually eat everyday literally everyday. Flush it out by drinking a whole lot of water to hydrate yourself . It’s going to show on your skin and your skin is going to say thank you by looking fresh…..

 

Most importantly stay positive and happy. Nothing works better than being happy and a positive state of mind. Meanwhile enjoy the festivities , dress up, look beautiful , take care of your skin and let me know what you all you did this Diwali to take are of your skin.
