Festive Fever

October 18, 2017

  Diwali has been one of my least favourite festivals ever since I stopped enjoying the noise of crackers. I always thought the spirit of a festival lies in celebrating it with your loved ones. And since most Diwalis none of my family members could ever get their ducks in a line well in advance to celebrate it together, I always felt like something was missing during the festival. In addition to that, since exams always came around right about…

To answer the most frequently asked question -no, it’s not just Indian…

Toniq for the soul

June 13, 2017

  Accessorising is the most fun part of putting an outfit together because the right accessories can really make your outfit talk. There have been so many instances where a really beautiful outfit didn’t go out on the blog because we lacked the right accessories. The story behind this outfit is similar. We wanted to share it but we couldn’t find the right accessories at all so we kept pushing it deep into the darker corners of the closet until…

Doing it my way

January 17, 2017

I have never been motivated to wake up like clockwork every day and go work at a corporate office, come back by 8 pm too tired to do anything, fall asleep and wake up again only to repeat the same monotonous routine the next day. Don’t get me wrong, many of my friends find this lifestyle rewarding and are in fact passionate about their jobs. It’s just that I am passionate about something completely different and I knew that from…

Silver Love

August 15, 2016

This post is a special dedication to my mothers silver jewelry collection. When most people were obsessed with gold jewelry, I’d spend hours looking at my mothers silver collection. Surprisingly, as a child, I never once drove myself to wear the pieces from her collection and preen in front of the mirror. They were always something I admired from afar. So, this time when I went back home I decided to actually try on the pieces I had always adored.…

Wrap Around for all Seasons

  What better way to show off those curves than through a wrap around dress? This gorgeous mauve wrap around from the collection at Kai-keyi had me really excited right from the day I set my eyes on it! A while ago, we received a mail where one of our readers asked us about the kinds of clothes that would suit all ages. Now, while we believe anything can be worn by anyone as long as they have the grace…

Little Black Dress

June 2, 2016

  Every once in a while, I come across a dress that’s made so beautifully that it feels like it was made specifically for me and I impulsively pick it up. This pretty little number is one such perfect, impulsive buy. Black isn’t my favorite colour, neither is it my go to colour and yet when I spotted the dress I just knew I had to have it. Besides, you must agree with us that every girl’s cupboard must have…

The Elfhie Collection – C Krishniah Chetty’s Ethical Collection

May 12, 2016

This is a long over-due post elaborating our honest thoughts about the Elfhie Collection at CKC. On the 2nd of April, we were invited to an exclusive meet and greet to view the Elfhie collection at CKC. Curiosity drew us to this event and before we knew it, we found ourselves being warmly welcomed into the large store that stands tall next to Safina Plaza. A little chat, with one of the great-great-great (not sure if we have the right…

Easy breezy does it now!

May 5, 2016

Summer time calls for the retirement of your jeans and the grand entry of easy breezy, light and pretty skirts and dresses. This in turn calls for the constant waxing of your legs which is a real pain. However, it’s all worth it when you can feel the air kiss your legs instead of your pants. That’s how I felt when I wore this beautiful blue skirt and white top. It’s stylish, bright, comfortable and most importantly it’s easy and…
