THE SHOE STORY

shoe collage

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)

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.

The Clothing Rental

The Clothing Rental (3)

How would you flaunt that Vintage Valentino you loved very much on runway but would never be able to afford it? Would you like to wear your favorite Merchesa or Georges Chakra  gown without having to purchase it? Consider yourself lucky because the one  fashionista – Shilpa Bhatia has made this possible for you in India! Shilpa with all her love for fashion started a concept store named “The Clothing rental” where you can rent your favorite Zara or Babe jumpsuit for just a fraction of the price. The store provides highend Italian/French labels and also offers wide range of Indian bridal wear. Shilpa makes the fashion really affordable with her brilliant idea with the obvious logic- affordability for the high-end label, very cliché for fashion lovers in India. Shilpa’s clientele includes but not limited to fashion week regulars and Bollywood professionals. Dolce and Gabbana, Armani, Hugo Boss, Carolina Harrera, Zegna, Alexander Wang, Anamika Khanna and Manish Malhotra are few of the labels available at “The Clothing rental”. Shilpa has expanded her business into two beautifully decorated stores located in Bandra and Versova. You can also rent your favorite fashion labels online. “We truly believe in offering value and it shows in our product and service.” Comments Shilpa.

BNLF BY INDIBLOGGER

Last week I was lucky to get invited to the BNLF – blog now live forever event orgenised by the IndiBlogger. It was such a fun weekend at The Lalit in Mumbai. I mean when you just walk down the room filled with 600 bloggers from all around the India, many of them with the menuscript for thier first book ready or being published in The Herald or The huffington Post is really great. the greatest part was everyone out there was blogger and was good one in what he/she was blogging about The event was superfun which included sessions on how to blog better and how to succeed in the world of blogging. The craziest thing was to meet everyone and ask them what they blog about! Even fashion week didnt ever sound so much fun. Among other, we had christoff Trappe, famous content marketer & Jeff Bullas #1 content marketing influencer as speakers. It was definately great learning from the experts.
