These were clicked while on a photo-walk early last Sunday morning through the by-lanes of North Kolkata.
The diverse flavour of the sights & sounds of my city is one of the things that makes it such an endearing subject & a treasure trove of moments for photography enthusiasts!!! <3

Keep the love coming, cupcakes!!! :D


Toodles!

The KAZO chronicle

by , in
I had read about KAZO blogger meets happening in other cities for the past couple of months and even cribbed to my fellow city bloggers about how these brands hold blogger events only at other cities and never in our city! So, imagine my joy & surprise when I received an e-mail from KAZO informing of a blogger meet happening at their store in Kolkata! I was ecstatic, to say the least! :))

KAZO is a high street brand catering to young & trendy women with their range of smart clothes, luscious bags & fun jewellery & belts! I loved their simple cuts & interesting detailings at first glance! The collection was fun & fresh, with a color story that started with whites, greys & blacks and moved on to brighter hues of coral, raspberry, turquoise & lime. There was a small, but effectively pretty, dose of tribal & arty prints too in vibrant hues! I specially drooled over the smart use of spikes, studs & even neon colored metal chains in their clothes - très chic indeed! <3


KAZO @ Forum Mall, Kolkata



Pretty colors & fun styles make up the KAZO collection of clothes & accessories!



We were greeted at the store by the warm & friendly KAZO staff and shown through the collections. We had to create two looks using their clothes & accessories - one Casual & one Party - and present those looks in a short video sharing our opinions & style tips regarding said looks. The activity turned out to be as much fun as it sounded!!! I dressed up a store mannequin in my styled looks and had a gala time in front of the camera while the video was shot! :D

My video camera-shy fellow bloggers had to be coaxed & cajoled to present their equally well-styled looks, post which we turned on the table that held the yummy feast spread out for us - cupcakes, puffs, sandwiches & packs of juices were gulped down in frenzied excitement as we were handed our goodie bags from KAZO! Could the day get any better, you ask? Yes...it did.......when we opened the goodie bag to find a big box of chocolates, a mug & an I-phone cover, courtesy KAZO inside it!!!

Presenting the Casual Look: comfy, summery & fun!


Presenting the Party Look: classy, chic & glamorous!


Fun times!!!

You most probably have noticed already that me & Debi are both wearing similar monochrome stripes!!! Trust me, we had no idea that we would both be wearing the season's biggest trend and would end up looking like long lost twins! But as they say...great minds and all, I guess! ;)

You all know how I love playing around with colors.............and a few random images I came across on the internet ended up inspiring me to put together monochrome with yellow & blue. I can safely say that I'm super-happy with the outcome.......what do you all think?

Out of Loyalty...

by , in
Yes..........I've been MIA for the longest now...........first had a break-up with the mirror because of an infected, red & swollen right eye.........then had an intimate live-in relationship with the bed thanks to a high fever, cough & cold..........and today, emboldened by pills & syrups, I'm trying to get over the bed and reconcile ties with my computer.........call me whimsical........call me fickle-minded............but I ain't no philanderer......I know where my loyalty lies! ;)


Talking of loyalty, the greatest portion of this value of mine lies with my work, my brand, my products. And so, as a loyal proprietor of Howrah Bridge, I feel it my duty to share my creations with you all from time to time. Of course, I thrive on your feedback, suggestions, criticism & compliments! ^_^


So without much ado and without wasting any more time (The fever has not bid me goodbye yet, hence I can't really end my early-turning-in relationship with my bed tonight!), here are a few of my favorite pieces from the Howrah Bridge Spring Summer '13 collection!!! Enjoy!
