Fashion Diaries - II

by , in
After a hiatus of more than 3 weeks, during which I spent a hectic but exciting Durga Puja and a more hectic & more exciting family holiday in Gujarat (more on both coming in following posts), I'm back to carry forward the fashion week series that had had a brief interval.

Day 2 at Lakme Fashion Week saw some seriously impressive sartorial action! :)
Some great shows, fun gossip sessions with friends who dropped by & some amazing style spotting made the day super-awesome! Oh!! And to add to that, I did a pretty spot of shopping that day at Colaba Causeway and hung out with friends by the seaside at Carter Road till the middle of the night!
*Nostalgia hits*

Some of the shows I attended:
Ken Ferns: Amazingly tailored, perfectly finished, celebrity showstoppers
Valliyan by Nitya Arora: Bold, statement jewellery, pieces of art
Karishma Shahani: Recycled chic, quaint, bohemian, fun

And then happened the show by my college buddy Sneha Arora. [Yes. That's the genius behind the bag I'm carrying in the last post]
What. A. Show.
The girl stunned one & all with her military inspired collection that was smart, chic, wearable & absolutely international in look & detailings. Her androgynous style & off-beat prints are to die-for! <3

Day 2 saw me layering up a storm of boho love! ^_^
Maxi dress. Knotted at hem.
Denim shirt worn as jacket.
A peek-a-boo of Aztec print leggings.
Jhola bag.
Messy bun hairdo.
Thong slippers.

My love for houndstooth checks matches my love for maxi dresses and when I found this, it was a match made in my dream heaven! <3

And needless to say, this denim shirt is quickly turning out to be the layering star of my wardrobe. 

Houndstooth maxi dress:  BK Market, Kolkata
Denim shirt: Commercial Street, Bangalore
Aztec print leggings: Shoppers Stop
Spiked Layers Necklace: Latin Quarters
Gold cuff: Thrifted
Flower ring: ASOS.com
Rose gold watch: Tommy Hilfiger
Embroidered tote bag: Borrowed from friend
Thong sandals: Catwalk

In other news....the #octoberwithinfb photo-a-day challenge on Instagram has made this month all the more exciting! If you are an avid user of the photo app like me, then do show me some love by following me on @anupriyadg  :))

Here's looking forward to a crazy Halloween!!! Have a spooky one!

Front Row fashion...

by , in
I just realised that I have published only one post in the whole sweet month of September.
Now I know why 'business' is spelt that way. *sigh*

Anyway, I'm interrupting my Fashion Week series a bit to bring to you a brand new virtual find of mine! :)

When Front Row Shop wrote to me to review one of their products, it was a sceptical finger that clicked on the link leading to the website. But once I was there, I knew I was sold for good! <3
Front Row Shop is an online shopping portal that stocks a most fabulous collection of clothes & accessories for the fashion-loving women out there. Their pieces are well-cut, simple & chic with smart little details, thus making each product covetable & quite irresistible!

Trust me when I say that I had a really tough time choosing one product for the review and after much confusion & deliberation, I went for this dress!! Take a look! :)

The dress came around 20 days after ordering and the packaging was properly & safely done. When I opened up the dress, it was love at second sight! The minimalist silhouette, the pretty blush hue & the chic white collar & cuffs looked even more perfect up front. 

So, even though I'm busier than ever with work, I wore this dress at the first given chance (which was yesterday!) and fell in love a third time over! 

The simple cut of the dress, coupled with the beautiful color & smart details made it the final pick for me! I can already see myself wearing this dress in a number of ways - that's the beauty of simplicity, you can create magic with it.

I thought of going the neo- classy way for the first time - hence, the chunky earrings, layered neutral necklaces, messy bun held with an arty clip, piece-of-art ring & hand-painted wedge pumps - with the vibrant printed clutch, that I picked up on impulse from my designer buddy Sneha Arora (this bag was from her first fashion week collection two seasons back) on a visit to her workshop last week, providing an interesting contrast! :)

Dress: c/o Front Row Shop
Printed suede clutch: Sneha Arora
Black macramé necklace: Colaba Causeway, Mumbai
Cameo pendant necklace: Pantaloons, Kolkata
Gold & white disc earrings: Platinum Mall, Bangkok
Double stone arty ring: Aquamarine, Mumbai
Handpainted wedge pumps: Spirited Soles

On my nails: Colorbar Lime Margarita
On my lips: Colorbar Peach Crush

The dress was as comfortable as it is pretty! The fabric is light, airy & of good quality & so are the trims. 
All in all, I'm absolutely impressed by Front Row Shop and would recommend it to all fashionistas out there who want to get their nail-arted hands on anything that's not run-of-the-mill, but unique & high on the style-meter! 

What's more.........you earn $1 right on registration and once you shop for over $1, you become a VIP member and can enjoy 5% discount forever!! :D

So, what are you waiting for? Click on the link to the website provided all over this post or avail the Front Row Shop banner that you can see on the right hand side bar of this page.

Happy shopping girls!!! 

Love schmove!
