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.
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)

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.
I am forever in love with this super chic bracelet that I received yesterday from designer and my friend Lalit Sengar. You know that thing when you see someone cute and he/she smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding up the hot toast, that’s what it’s like when I see accessories. Only its better! If there is love at first sight, this was it. I saw it on the ramp at Lalit Sengar Spring Summer 14 show during Lakme Fashion Week. Bollywood actor Purab Kohli walked the ramp wearing this utterly hip bracelet and I knew this was It! This bracelet being one of most favourite accessories I spotted at Fashion Week, I was hopping freaking mad receiving this. And that doubled when Lalit told me that this is the original piece used during his show and worn by Purab. You can read more about his collection here or browse through his creations here.
