My Long Black Dress.....and a blogger meet

We finally had the much-awaited Kolkata Bloggers Meet today! :D

Our city, as such, has very few bloggers to boast of! And fashion bloggers? Well, we are a rare breed indeed!!
So, when one of our dear fashion blogger friends came to town from USA, we knew we had to meet up - the few of us who keep the city fashion bloggers flag flying high! And thus, after much planning, discussing, phone-number-exchanging, excitement-sharing & outfit-planning, we met for lunch today - the sweet & warm Ayantika of Bong's Belleza, the pretty & fun Sayantani of Bows Hearts & Everything Cute, the bubbly & crazy Soumi of Sold For Shoes Overweight Intellectual Dancer and of course, me!

I almost turned my closet inside-out, trying to decide what to wear for the meet! (And discovered a bag full of new clothes in the process!) After putting together 4-5 different outfits & combinations, I decided to go for my not-so-little black dress with pops of color here & there....what do you guys think? :)

Thought of adding some quirk with my cute li'l Howrah Bridge brooch (which all the other girls fell in love with, instantly)
Also, the neon green belt broke the monotony of the black midi.

Had some fun with my nail-paint too! :D
And wore rings in the same colors!!!

Kept the bag & the shoes neutral to balance out the other colors. Flower Power, anyone???

Fooling around.....actually, we were having way too much fun taking each others' pictures!!! ;)

How did the week go for all you? And how did spend the weekend???

Today was the start of the Bengali New Year* (i.e, the first day of the Bengali calendar) and I had a great new start with a bunch of new friends! :D

*I'm a Bengali by birth, which means that I belong to the Bengali community of the Hindu sect.

Here's wishing you all a fabulous week ahead!!!

Lots of love,
Anupriya DG
