So it was my best friend’s engagement ceremony and I was clueless of what to wear. I wanted something that was not overly flashy yet wanted something that stood out. Another thing I had to keep in mind was the budget because there are days when you have absolutely no cash in your bag ( Thanks to Narender Modi for demonetization ). The only place which strikes me when I am in such a dilemma is ‘Lajpat Nagar‘. I decided to keep my entire outfit under 5000 INR and well I managed to do a decent job. I got this black crop top & full length skirt from a shop in Lajpat for under 2000 INR. I went for black top as it was something I could wear later on as well and the pink skirt added color to this ensemble. I knew I had to accessorize this one heavily as it would have looked very casual otherwise, so my favorite neck-piece from romoch.com came to my rescue… Can’t tell you how much I love wearing this one I added one more necklace around my waist and to me it looked most perfect thing to do. My heels again are from my favorite shop in Lajpat called ‘Kins‘. The transparent block heels are to die for. I went for studs in antique silver look and also a hand cuff in same color to complete the look . Sometimes, you really don’t have to spend a lot to look good . If you are in Delhi, you must must must checkout Lajpat Nagar market, it is my favorite shopping destination

Since, I did not post the swatch pictures but a video for the swatches, a lot of you wanted an individual swatch story so here it is.

Bold, Carefree and Out there – Thats my Alter ego, Distinct yet a part of me. There are days when I wanna look different altogether, something that is beyond people’s expectation and I feel this was one of those days. Here I styled this gorgeous skirt from ‘StalkBuyLove’ with a grey crop top from ‘The Vanca’. I paired this outfit with black shoes by H&M and a cute little sling bag that my friend got me from UK. Ofcourse the entire ensemble would have looked very girly and cute, had I worn a pink or peach lipstick but I went ahead with bold lips and if you are wondering what Lipstick it is, let me tell you a little secret – It is not a lipstick but kohl pencil by Pac cosmetics Hope you enjoy the pictures

Few days back I wrote aboutTripti’s Exclusive handmade jewelry that is not only creative but also unique in its own way. I was so intrigued by these adorable earrings I received from the brand, that I thought why not to do an outfit inspired by them. This beautifully scuplted face of Maa Durga looks so enchanting that everybody asked me about where I got my pair from and I am not saying it just for the sake of saying , I really mean it. The earrings may appear bulky but are very light-weight in real as they are made of polymer and finesse with which these are made is commendable. Also, these are very easy to clean with a wet cotton. I decided to go for an outfit that complements the colors and design of the earrings so I went ahead with an indo-western look. I got my mum’s shirt along with an orange tank top underneath and paired it with a red salwar. I love wearing heels so yes, that’s what I wore with this outfit. I am completely in love with how this look turned out and ofcourse how the studs looked.
I will again say, these earrings are a must have thingiiieee in your jewelry collection. They also make a great gifting option so if you are on a look out to give something special to your loved one, you can try this out. Time for some pictures

I know winters aren’t here yet but doesn’t this look tell you how much I am ready for it.. haha.. So I got my hands on this beautiful Black winter jacket by ‘The Vanca‘ and I thought .. “Umm Let’s try it on and then the pictures..” lol.. Sometimes it is that unplanned. What I really liked about this jacket is that it is very very soft which makes it ever so comfortable to wear and the ban neck makes it ever more irresistible. Everything from the material to the buttons scream quality. I went with a colored jeans which I got from jabong and a basic black top from UCB to team with this jacket. To complete the look I opted for my very favorite shoes by jollychic ..
