As I approach this new decade with great trepidation (based on everything I’ve heard) – I decided to take a look at all things I’m supposed to stop doing by the time I turn 30. [Read more…]
Hiiii lovelies, I know it’s been a long absence from this space and I would love to go into the what/why/how but today is Diwali! It’s a day of new beginnings. Lord Ram didn’t come back home to Ayodhya to hear a bunch of excuses, amirite? LOL
I’ve been quite pumped about this Diwali so I thought I’ll give you a sneak peak of my decked up new home and some other things while I’m at it. Hope you have a lovely day and shine on like a Sindhi aunty at a Kitty Party! Or like Beyonce. Or both. Oooh, imagine that. [Read more…]

Hi lovers, I’m back with that section which I just now realize has started to form a distinct pattern. First, I marvel at how fast the year is passing by (we are already on our 8th Monthly Favourites Edition of the year!) Then, I make an excuse for either shopping or not shopping too much; and after that I hastily begin to describe what I ate, shopped, bought, liked the last month. Not that I’m complaining – I kinda love doing this every month. 🙂 So let’s look at ze goodies, shall we?
Have you ever read your horoscope somewhere, found it freakishly accurate, proceeded to get creeped out and then wondered who comes up with such stuff? Well that makes two of us, sister!
So when I got the chance to talk to Zohra Shanti (Karishma Rajani), tarot reader who writes daily horoscopes, former fashion blogger and writer at Cosmopolitan magazine, I was more than excited! There’s been nothing like this on the blog before; heck, I don’t think there’s been anyone like her before! I’m just so truly fascinated by all that she is and I wanted to know more about her journey. Her real girl vibe made this interview all the more endearing. I’ve asked her every last doubt I had, and she has patiently indulged me! Read and devour – there’s also a happy surprise at the end. [Read more…]
Did you miss me? Consider this the July Favourites post since we are well into August and I haven’t done one yet. Also, I missed doing a June Favourites post – you can find out why here.
I’ve been a bit of a spend thrift lately, and have lots of new things to show you. Some you might have already spotted on my Instagram – but we are both going to pretend like this is brand new information. Right? Right!
PS: I’m going to be…well, me, and tell you right here that since I’m not a fashion blogger, I’m no authority on fashion. I legit don’t know what Diane Von Furstenberg is up to right this minute. Nor can I tell you about what the House Of Dior is doing for their next line. I know what you’re thinking – nor can other fashion bloggers, right? Umm, well that’s a conversation for another day. *Insert angelic smile here*
I legit only buy things that suit my personal aesthetic and that I’m comfortable wearing.
So here’s what’s going on with me – fashion wise!
I’ve been skimming through some fashion magazines lately and I’m happy to know yellow dresses are having a major moment. Though I bought mine on a whim! I love the brand Femella as their dresses look really great on curvy women. I also love solid coloured dresses because you can do so much with the styling. Oh, and I’m living for that shoulder cutout ruffle detail! I think the whole charm of the dress lies in that.
Found these pretty tassle earrings at Janpath in Delhi. I instantly picked them up. I think they are purrrrfect to brighten up a monotone outfit. And I absolutely love the Freida Kahlo vibe of this picture. PS: At Rs 200 (approx), they were an absolute STEAL.
I absolutely adore my new arm stack. Although does two things count as an arm stack? Hmmm – I’m not sure. The rose gold heart and silver knot bracelet are both from Accessorize. I find that Accessorize has the BEST stuff when it comes to dainty + cute jewellery. Pssst; I posted this on my Instagram a while ago with a rather sappy message. Go find it if you want to roll your eyes or whatever. 🙂
Couldn’t resist picking up this multi coloured bag while in Delhi. Isn’t it just the cutest? I love the size and I absolutely love the little mirror detailing. I think it can easily brighten up any outfit. Actually, it’s important that the outfit is kind of muted for the full effect of this charming bag. It reminds me a little of that major Jhola trend that had hit when I was in college! Yes yes, back in the day! I was hooked then and I’m hooked now.
I’m no Eva Chen but here’s my own unique leg pose okay? I think my favourite phata hua jeans go super well with these tan babies from Ajio! Got them on sale too 🙂 Very pleased with this purchase. That ankle strap looks particularly nice with dresses. PS: Hadn’t realised just *how* universal the colour tan is. These literally go with everything!
I love this new shift dress of mine by the brand Aseesa (shop is in Bandra). There’s something so simple yet so chic about it! It also gives me mad retro vibes! I’m not sure about the price right now but I think this was under 1k and that’s another thing I love about this brand. You don’t have to sell your left kidney and your iPhone to shop here.
Oh, and the dress has pockets which I’m not sure why gets me very very excited.
I got this adorable bag in a Sugarbox I bought earlier this year. If you don’t know what that is, check it out! It’s a really cool subscription box that I personally love for the quirk factor. This patch trend is totally in and I’m loving the childlike vibe this bag brings to any outfit.
I’m also loving my new white trainers from Koovs. This is my second pair of white shoes! Bought this after I wore out my old pair. Didn’t think the trend would last this long but I’m not complaining. I’m all for trends that are based on comfort, because bro, lazy like that!
And lastly main bhi hipster! How cool and retro are these aviator frames? I absolutely ADORE and have gotten dozen of compliments for them too. Proud of myself for this awesome street find but I barely ever wear them. I only think of them when I’m clicking pictures, TBH.
That pretty much sums up my fashion updates. Tell me what you thought of my Real Girl style? Would like to see more of this kind of stuff?
I felt kind of cool putting this together in one post. I’m quite random about my fashion sense. I like a little retro, a little quirk, a little bit of just following trends – it’s a mix! It was nice to see my own style from a third person perspective as I spelt it all out for you.
What say though? I CAN ALSO FASHION, YES?
