Wedding Weds: Blush & Gold

31st July

I’m introducing a new regular on the blog- Wedding Wednesday. Regular readers will know I’m getting married next year and this new regular on the blog is a place for me to indulge in all things weddings. Yep, I know I already blog about Bridal wear but this is going to be more on the lines of mood boards, hair/make up inspiration, tips on how to pick your suppliers & my fav- D.I.Y tutorials. I’ve shared a couple of D.I.Y projects before (which I really enjoyed putting together!)- D.I.Y Wedding Favours- Orange & Cardamom biscuits, D.I.Y Wedding/Engagement Cake Stand & D.I.Y Thank You Cards.

My first post is a re-post of my latest Pinterest mood board on Blush & Gold.

Sonakshi Sinha, Frieda Pinto & Sonam Kapoor work S/s 13 pant suit trend

18th July 2013

Pant suits have been spotted all over the catwalks and there are so many variations on the trend. White on white suits were seen at Gucci and Haider Ackermann. Head to Toe floral pant suits were seen at Erdem and Ashish n Soni. Pop block colour were big at Micheal Kors, Stella McCartney and Gucci and not forgetting the cute graphic print short suits at Louis Vuitton & Dolce & Gabbana.

And several Bollywood stars have been working the trend. My fave look has to be Sonakshi Sinha’s and it’s so refreshing to see her wearing something age appropriate (I find some of her fashion choices make her look far older than her age.)

Friday Fives: Five trends I won’t be wearing

12th July 2013

Ok so I work in fashion and I design trend- led pieces for the high street but whether I wear them is another matter entirely. Trends I have been wearing at the mo are head to toe colour, white on white, print pants/trousers and I still pop a peplum now and then but on the flip side there are some popular trends that I have left well alone. As much as I may admire them on other people on me its a no-no and here they are…

Crop tops

Right the only time my jelly belly goes on display in public is when I’m in a bikini on a beach! I do quite like the way some celebs rock the look with a high waist pant/skirt and a blazer so there’s just a glimpse of bare midriff. It is a flattering way of working a crop but nonetheless I’ll be passing on this trend.

Buttoned up shirts

Yes, I am the only girl left on the planet that refuses to button my shirt all the way up! I just feel like it makes me look like I’m smuggling huge melons under my blouse (and my boobs really aren’t big!)

‘Cheeky’ Micro shorts

Rihanna in her ‘cheeky’ micro shorts- nope no way I’m wearing a pair of these!

Dungarees

I quite like dungarees on other people but on me its just way too much ‘Bob the Builder’ terrority!

Beanies

Cara Delevingne is responsible for this trend and she and her fans always have a beanie on. I am gonna simply say I’m way TOO old and too square to wear this trend! Lol

Masaba Gupta @ Satya Paul Wifw A/w 13

14th March 2013

The much anticipated Masaba Gupta for Satya Paul opened Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week A/w 13 yesterday. And what a show?! AMAZINGGGG! Masaba injected her fun, quirky and youthful style to the brand. The stunning prints revolved around pop art style telephone boxes and lipstick motifs as well as a Jackson Pollock-esque splatter print. The base colours were whites, blacks and greys with bursts of neon lime, pink and orange and silhouettes included saris, simple shifts, kaftans and a great range of accessories. This super commercial collection will fly out of stores and bring a younger audience to the great brand which is exactly what they hoped for by appointing Masaba as creative director.

2012: Indian Fashion, Trend and Style Review

1st Jan 2013

It’s review time! Here’s my Fashion, Trend and Style report for 2012

MY TOP THREE INDIAN FASHION SHOWS

It was an exciting year for Indian fashion in 2012 and here’s my fav three catwalk shows of the year.

1st PLACE: SABYASACHI

I adore Sabya’s work and the collection he showed at Delhi Couture Week simply took my breath away. To read more click here.

1st Jan 1

2nd PLACE: NAMRATA JOSHIPURA

I love the understated luxe that Namrata brings to her collections, her show at WIFW includes some of the hottest trends for S/s 13. To read more click here.

1st Jan 2

3rd PLACE: RETARDED VELVET

Both WIFW and Lakme Fashion Week have really championed new talent this year and Retarded Velvet are one of my fav new ‘ones to watch’ there print ROCK. To read more click here.

1st Jan 3

MY TOP THREE TRENDS

There were many trends in 2012 and I’ve struggled narrowing the selection down to my fav three. What do you think of my choice? would you have opted for something else?

1st PLACE: PEPLUMS

Everyone went peplum mad in 2012 (including me!) the super flattering style was worn by many celebs and these three looks are gorg.

1st Jan 4

L-R Neha Dupia in Victoria Beckham, Esha Gupta in H&M & Sonam Kapoor in a Jelin George skirt.

2nd PLACE: LONG GOWNS

Ohh there were soooo many red carpet events this year and these stunning gowns really made a mark!

1st Jan 5

L-R Anushka Sharma in Roberto Cavalli, Deepika Padukone in Gaurav Gupta & Frieda Pinto in Alexander McQueen.

3rd PLACE: POP ART PRINT SARI

The sari got a big injection of fun this year with these fun pop art prints which celebs went mad for.

1st Jan 6

L-R Hazel Keech in Aarti Vijay Gupta, Soha Ali Khan in Masaba Gupta, Sonam Kapoor in Surendi by Yogesh Chaudhary.

MY TOP THREE STYLISH INDIANS

1st PLACE: SONAM KAPOOR
Sonam has been wowing us with her stylish looks for the last few years and her 2012 choices have been amaaziiingg! Not only has this gorg lady been flying the flag for fashion at home but outside of India too. How amazing did she look at the Elie Saab show in a Deepti Pruthi sari? I also love the Anamika Khanna draped sari pant look she’s been championing recently, this girl knows how to start a trend!

1st Jan 7

L-R Anamika Khanna, Unknown, Deepti Pruthi, Cavalli

2nd PLACE: SAMEERA REDDY

Sonam had better watch out because Ms Reddy is hot on her heels! Her fashion choices before 2012 were suspect and I’m guessing there’s a rather talented stylist behind her fashion transformation but regardless of the reason- one things for sure she looked HOT in 2012. I LOVE the fact she’s supported Indian fashion labels this year from Shivan & Narresh, Kallol Datta, Nishka Lulla and newbies Huemn.

1st Jan 8

L-R Shivan & Narresh, unknown, AM:PM, Shivan & Narresh

3rd PLACE: DEEPIKA PADUKONE

Deepika always looks good but this year it just seems like she’s stepped it up a gear. Her off duty style of oversize tees, skinnies and chunky jewellery always works and her red carpet choices have been YUM. The red Gaurav Gupta gown, the green Gauri & Nainika gown and the stunning Dolce & Gabbana gold skirt all get an A* from me.

Friday Fives

14th Dec 2012

Hey guys- Friday Fives is a new regular for the blog where I pick out my favourite five things for the week. This could be anything from my fav five make up looks to my fav five winter coats of the week! I’m kicking off with my fav five celeb looks and with three uber glam parties this week (the Cavalli launch, Ensemble’s 25th anniversary and Hello! India Hall of Fame do) there were plenty of options to consider.

Sridevi’s style just keeps getting better and better! And she looked absolutely sensational in Prabal Gurung at the Hello! India Hall of Fame party

Sri Devi Hello! India Hall of Fame

I was kinda disappointed with the looks at Ensemble’s 25th anniversary party. The only outfit that stood out for me was Anu Dewan in Stella McCartney. The bronze pumps and skinny belt work well with the striking print but the bag was a duff choice.

Anu-Dewan ensemble stella mcartney

Madhuri Dixit looked amazing in Dior, its fab to see her in a gown instead of her usual anarkali/sari choice. Her hair and make up looked fresh and so now!

Madhuri Dixit at Hello! Hall of Fame

Ok, I already know this might come as a surprise choice seeing as Sonam Kapoor was Cavalli’s guest of honour and yes she looked gorgeous in the black lace gown but I just thought Jacqueline Fernandez look was just so effortless and the pop of colour just stood out!

JacquelineFernandez

Well how could I not include Ms Balan in the list? The talented lady got hitched to her real life leading man Siddharth Roy Kapur and look at that awwww look of love! Congrats to the happy couple!

Shehla Khan’s latest campaign ft. Sonam Kapoor

26th Nov 2012

Festivities are over as is the amazing week ‘the boy’ (yep still can’t say fiancée-sounds too grown up!) and I had in Barbados. After my hol, I’m very much back and raring to go. I have lots of new ideas and exciting blog posts coming up so keep checking in! For now I have to share the pretty as a picture bridal campaign by Shehla Khan ft. of course bestie Sonam Kapoor. I’m a big fan of Khan’s elegant signature style of soft pastel shades, feminine cuts and vintage lace & embroideries.

The image above is my favourite; the blouse detail is just gorgeoussssss!

And if you’d like to know how to get bright coral lips like the shade Ms Kapoor regularly rocks, then check out the video I made with make-up supermo Dipali Damji. Click here!

Label Lust: Eina Ahluwalia

2nd October 2012

I’ve been spotting Ms Ahluwalia’s pretty pieces all over the place- looking ohhhh so hot on many a Bollywood beauty and more recently in a gorgeous shoot for CR. ( Carine Roitfield’s mag ) Eina’s pieces are delicate and intricate and she utilises the traditional craft skill of Jali (hand made fretwork) in her jewellery…and anyone who regularly reads my blog knows I love designers that keep Indian craftsmanship alive!
