Dr Martens 1461

FullSizeRender - Copy copy

When I put on a pair of shoes, it’s not just shoes; it is the expression of who I am ultimately as a person and a human being. That is why I spend more on Shoes than on clothes. Though I really don’t judge people, the shoes they put on make an ever-lasting impression on me! So, being the shoe maniac that I am, I just purchased my first pair of Dr Martens shoes. These are 1461 black smooth boots. Dr Marten is more than a brand, it’s a cult and you have to sip into it every moment to love brand like this. Classy? YES, Rebellious? YES. The brand itself speaks for the boots by just making them!! You have to be Rebelling to be wearing those boots!! I can pretty much relate my taste for fashion to the class that these boots provide!! These boots were pretty much everything I wanted for past couple of months. The infamous bouncing sole and yellow stitching are yet another feathers in the hat! I simply can’t wait to flaunt them at next fashion week.

THE SHOE STORY

Being a “type A” shoe Maniac that I am, here I bring to you my forever favorite shoes. Though , the shoes I am talking about here are from limited brands and I am not giving much of an options mostly because I have my choices defined and I would rarely go out of my way and despite this fact I love experimenting. I am forever in love with these Hightop Dr Martenes Jadon (1) and 1461 Antique Temprley (2) and I wish to have them both in my closet soon. I think Dr Martenes is more than a brand, It’s a cult! With very niche and unique customer base, they always stands upto the class. Giusseppe Zanotti is synonym of hightop for my conscious, sub-conscious and unconscious self!! I own a pair of hightop sneakers from the designer, I just can not get enough of these two pairs (3 & 4) of metal strapped hightops. Lastly, Jeremy Scott X Adidas Originals Mickey Hi (5) and Bones (6) has been catching up my attention for quit a while and I would surely miss a beat when I flaunt them soon (Though they are not available through official channels, I will manage to get them)

This is your “I am going to prom/I am going to wedding/I am bridesmaid dress” The backless trumpet dress with scoop neck and brush train is beautifully made in woven velvet that assures the comfort. The beauty of this dress lies in the simplicity yet the fell-good and catchy details that the dress itself is.

There’s something about the LBD – the little black dress that always fascinated me and felt deep love since the Coco Chanel’s infamous Breakfast at Tiffany’s LBD. The neck beading resembles the pearls that goes with Audrey’s LBD later made almost mediocre by copycats. This is the perfect dress to wear since you can never go wrong with black. The thigh length LBD is made-up in chiffon and has back zipper. Pair it up with sparkling pencil heels. Keep the accessorizing to minimum3

The red frock is sure to impress your date. Short dress made in satin fabric has scoop neck. The appliqué embellishment makes the dress interesting choice for you prom. Its surely your dress if every guy at the prom is asking you for a dance.

 Don’t be afraid to play up. Be your bold self with this very dramatic ,feathery short dress. The rosy patterned silhouette and the appliqué embellished details on front are worth note. this dress is sure to bring out the inner princess that you have been wanting and waiting to be forever. The dress is made-up in tulle.

Styling tip: the right choice of accessories and shoes is utterly important. Given the appliqués/ embellished details of the dress, avoid accessorizing. Wear your highest heels.

Lakmé Fashion Week winter/festive 2016

So after skipping three seasons of my favorite Indian fashion event –Lakmé Fashion Week , i decided its time I make myself at home! And I attended the Winter Festive 2016 held at Beautiful St Regis in Mumbai during 24th to 28th August! It is always pleasure to witness creative crowd and their creativity being unfold right in front of you. I really enjoyed every collection that I watched but I couldn’t help but love Gaurav Khanijo, Cord, Kallol Datta and Kriti Tula!

Talking about my look- I wore Indian by Manish Arora for KOOVS bomber jacker, tank top and drop crotch harem pants. I chose Guiseppe Zanotti hightop sneakers for my love for HipHop and a  cluch from Aliexpress.com . My look is well below 6000 INR excluding the Zanotti sneakers.
