Back To School With Bow-Ties {Style Prism x Indian Bow Tie Company}

We always knew bow-ties to be one of the coolest accessories for men. But in this age of gender equality and unisex fashion, what's stopping women to don a few of 'em too? 

My earliest memories of wearing a tie is associated with the quintessential school uniform - the checkered pinafore with a white shirt inside and the small red tie still stirs up fond memories when I spot girls on the road wearing the outfit that I used to happily flaunt everyday all those years ago!

So, needless to say, when the Indian Bow Tie Company, in association with Thinkquisitive, sent over this quirky wooden moustache-shaped beauty, I couldn't help but style a back-to-school look around it. 
The Indian Bow Tie Company is known for their dedicated approach to reviving the art of wearing bow-ties and as with all fun accessories, fashionable men & women have been seen lending their stylish twist to these bow-ties. As a contemporary take on the ubiquitous neck accessory, Indian Bow Tie Company, has also introduced funky wooden versions of the fabric bow-ties - in fun shapes like the trending handlebar moustache - that can amp up your cool quotient in a jiffy! 

So, out came the white shirt and the pinafore-ish dress, on went the belt, the quirky pineapple print gave company to the funky bow-tie and my favourite metallic slip-ons finished the preppy-meets-quirky-meets-schoolgirl look!

The two fun pieces of awesomeness that just got added to my wardrobe!

Fashion & Fun @ Wills Lifestyle SS '16 Launch

With the days getting hotter and the evenings getting warmer, the fashion-conscious crowd is looking out for trendy & comfortable summer clothes that can see them through these hot months and take them from work to party, if required. 
As an answer to your summer fashion woes, Wills Lifestyle has launched a refreshing Spring-Summer 2016 collection that boasts of fun prints and trendy styles for both men & women. Full of pretty prints and summery hues, this collection comprises of both smart work-wear as well as stylish semi-formal pieces that can be effortlessly taken from day to night. #win

To mark the launch of this vibrant new collection, the brand called the city bloggers to come together for an evening of fun & fashion, styling models in clothes from the new collection and putting together looks for themselves as well. Needless to say, we all had a great time playing dress-up in the Wills Lifestyle store and catching up with fellow bloggers!

I chose a casual cool look for the guy, adding a dapper knitted tie to his printed cotton shirt & rolled-up denims look. I dressed up the girl in a classy printed shift dress with heels & an envelope clutch that will look perfect for a date night or dinner party.

For myself, I opted for a pretty tangerine shift dress with pockets with a subtle tone-on-tone print that exuded smart chic. A maroon houndstooth scarf added an element of playful class to the outfit that can be easily taken from day to night!

Check out more of their lovely collection at any Wills Lifestyle store near you!

And this is what I wore to the event - some summer layering in light colours with a quirky bag and sporty shoes!

Doing The Denim {Style Prism x Lino Perros - Chapter I}

Denim on denim is a trend that's been strong for the past few seasons and from the looks of it, it's not going anywhere anytime soon!

Though I have played around with more than one piece of denim in the outfit a few times, I haven't really put up any such outfit on the blog yet. 
So, when this chic denim sling bag came in from Lino Perros, I knew I had to build an all-denim outfit around it! The bag is not only in a cool blue denim & tan leather combination, it also has a smattering of small studs on it for a subtle touch of bling - a perfect bag to take from play to party effortlessly! #win

Also, I chose one of Bangalore's cool, arty graffiti-ed walls as a backdrop for this outfit to give it a 90s street-grunge vibe...what do you think?

{Beauty Box} Review: Himalaya Herbals new lip care range

The prehistoric notion that lip balms are required only during winters is just that. Prehistoric.'

Today, our lips need some love & care all through the seasons - be it winter, monsoons or summer. The changing climatic conditions and the daily dust & pollution we subject ourselves to, takes a toll on the sensitive surface of our lips, thus making them dry, chapped & dull. 

Our puckers being one of the most sensitive parts of our face, it's best not to apply anything you can lay your hands on, on them. Choose your lip products with care and make sure you give your lips the best kind of care to keep them soft & supple. 

Himalaya Herbals comes to your rescue this season with their brand new range of lip care products that are dedicated to give you freedom from dry lips using the best of natural ingredients! What more can we ask for!!

The range offers you five different and individually amazing flavours of lip balms that work in their own efficient way in keeping your lips moisturized and smooth. 
I have used all the five over a period of the past two weeks and here's what I think of these must-have lip care products!

Himalaya Peach Shine Lip Care

The Peach Shine lip care is made from peach kernel oil that keeps your lips nourished by protecting them from environmental damages. This product also has castor oil that helps make lips soft & supple. The peachy flavour and pretty tint of this lip balm makes it a perfect beauty fix for a day out with the girls!

Himalaya Natural Soft Vanilla Lip Care

The Natural Soft Vanilla lip care consists of a mild vanilla essence and is enriched with 100% natural colour, Vitamin E and anti-oxidants for naturally softened, smooth lips. A swipe of it on your puckers will provide a perfect base for a nude lip colour while getting ready on weekday mornings for work. 

Himalaya Litchi Shine Lip Care

The Litchi Shine lip care protects lips with the help of the anti-oxidants and natural actives in it. The pretty pink hue and moisturizing properties of this lip balm makes it a good choice for keeping your pout soft and smooth for a movie date with the guy!

Himalaya Rich Cocoa Butter Lip Care

The Rich Cocoa Butter lip care's main ingredient is, of course, cocoa butter along with sal butter that nourishes & intensely moisturizes the lips. This lip balm has a slightly grainy texture and its rich density softens and provides long-lasting moisturisation. This is a good choice for keeping your lips smooth & soft for a weekend road trip.

Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Care

The Strawberry Shine lip care boasts of a moisture-retention formula with skin soothers that make your lips naturally glossy. This lip balm is free from preservatives, petroleum jelly, mineral oil or silicone. It's classy red tint can care for as well as prettify your pout for a night out in town!

These lip balms all come in 4.5 gm packs and are available in all major beauty outlets as well as online at

Show some love to your lips & include these wonderful products in your daily beauty regime. If you use these lip care products regularly, you'll be sure to flaunt soft, smooth and supple lips in no time!

The new Spring bag {Style Prism x Sammydress}

Spring is here and summer is almost knocking on the doors.

The winter clothes have all gone in and our wardrobes are fast filling with all things, white, pastel & floral. 
But for me, black always occupies a place of dominance in my closet. I can never live without black - not in the cold winter time, nor in the hot, summer months.
Whoever set the fashion rule that keeps black away from the summer cycle does not have my support. For me, black never goes out of style and I flaunt it all year long.

Hence, it was no surprise that I decided to welcome Spring in an all-black ensemble. Specially because my black attire brought out the soft beauty of my new favourite summer sling - a lace & cane bag from the wonderful website

Sammydress has a wide and well-curated range of clothes, accessories, shoes & beauty products and some of their trendy stuff are must-haves in a fashionista's wardrobe. I am totally going to pick up quite a few summer pieces that I have my eyes on! Specially if you have summer holiday plans that are gonna take you to the beach, you must check out their tempting new swimwear range!!

[Black maxi tunic with slits: Forever 21 | Black pleated maxi skirt: Platinum Mall, Bangkok | Lace & cane sling bag: c/o | Tan flats: Forever 21 | Gold belt: Borrowed from sis]

This bag is totally gonna be my go-to accessory this spring....the pastel pink lace, the cane body, the pretty tassels....what's not to love, eh?

Do follow Sammydress on Facebook & Instagram. Happy shopping!!!


In other news, am going on a weekend trip early tomorrow morning (must go to sleep now!) #excited
