Her Highness

Couldn't think of a better title for my post. When I saw the photographs of the collection, presented by Sabyasachi a few days back at Lakmè Fashion Week, just one word echoed in my mind "Royal". His collection was the personification of the word Royal. Sabyasachi himself is synonymous with Royalty which reflects in all his creations. It clearly is visible in his work the way he perceives women. I stumbled upon a few articles saying that however beautiful Sabyasachi's clothes seem, they can really go uneasy on you. Just tell me one thing, since when has our Indian traditional clothes are famous for being comfortable.  
I can't really tell about others but I would kill to own any of these pieces below. His collection at Lakmè Fashion week showed a woman who is beautiful, elegant, powerful and completely aware of her existence; she cannot be taken easy, for 'Her Highness' knows where She stands.

Debarun's collection BADASTOOR at Lakme Fashion Week ( A/W 2013)

Hello people!! Please excuse me for all these days I haven't been posting. Better late than never, right? Please consider it as my comeback post. Last Wednesday when I checked my mail box I never knew I was in for a big surprise. Yes I was already preparing my questions to interview Debarun but invitation to attend the show itself,  was far-fetched. Obviously it was my first time to attend a high profile fashion show, Lakme Fashion Week (A/W 2013) day two at Grand Hyatt. And that's not all, there were three fashion shows scheduled in that slot. Opening was done by Debarun, followed by Vijay Balhara and Shilpa Reddy. Sometimes you are just lucky, exactly that's how I felt. The whole place came alive when the models walked the ramp on the divine tunes of "Bavra Mann" and "Jheeni Re Jheeni" for Debarun's collection.
Alas! I did not have my camera with me, all I had was my phone. All these pictures were sent to me through email. To have a look at the pictures and videos by me, please visit my Facebook Page. The video above is showing collections by Debarun, Vijay Balhara and Shilpa Reddy. Well now I should better get back to the ground and let you know more about Debarun's collection Ba-Dastoor.

The collection is a rediscovery in the past while reinstating that the eternal stories do not lose their charm but only reinvent themselves in a splendid new avatar. Debarun has used beige, ivory, red  and nude color tones. The fabrics are tassar silk, cotton kora, viscouse silk, velvets and matka silks as they were the suitable to bring to life the splendor of an era which can never end. The collection consists of sarees, lehengas, layered dresses, churidar suits.
For the men, Debarun has chosen short jackets teamed with kurtas, band gala's, long flared coats and sherwani inspired suits to take you back in time and remind you of elements which are eternal. A wide variety of techniques including block prints, over-dying, hand embroidery and applique has been Debarun's choice for this collection using an aged and matt finish to highlight the influence of the classical while infusing it with the contemporary.

I hope you like the collection and for further inquiry please click here

It's been a little too busy

Studio Shirt: H&M
Pants: H&M
Necklace: toniQ (Lifestyle)
Shoes: Old 
This post took a lot of time to come out. Life has been a little too busy, but no complaints. Please don't think that I have left blogging. It's only that I didn't  want to loose the niche by posting only travel posts. But now I am beginning to think that I should not have kept my blog readers wondering about what might have happened to me. So here I am all alive and good posting you this new outfit post of mine. Photos are again indoors as its very cold outside. I hope you like the outfit.

Linz Diaries | Part Two

These photos are from a magnificent place Pichlingersee. As they say "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder", you have to visit the place to know it better. To me it was just like heaven in my eyes.

Pichlingersee is in the southeast of the district Linz. It had been scaled artificially to suit all the age groups. In the summer season it invites parents and children to swim, relax and play. It makes for an exquisite camping site as well. Small kids explore the playgrounds while older children, teenagers and parents can enjoy mini golf, football, basketball, beach volleyball and table tennis.  All sorts of facilities are provided from food to sanitary.
When we got there, it was drizzling which made it really cold. Though summers are the right season to go there yet we enjoyed the site seeing and a long serene walk round the lake. So if you are to visit Linz do check this enticing location.

Have a great week people. And hopefully next time it would be an outfit post. Until then bye bye!

Linz Diaries | Part One

City Center
Sorry people for not posting anything since long. This time all the blame is on this splendid city of Linz. It didn't let me stay indoors at all. As soon as I finish my household chores every day, I put Veda in her pram and take her out with me to roam around the city. I've been doing this for one whole week, yet have not had enough of it. On weekend Amit took us to PichlingerSee and Pöstlingberg. A bit distant places at the outskirt of the city. I don't really have words to explain how beautiful these places were. Though weather was not particularly good, it was raining and that made the temperature go really down. However I never enjoyed the coffee more. 
Linz is the third largest city of Austria after Vienna and Graz. Still it has a town like feel to it which makes you love it even more. Linz's picturesque beauty might make you skip a heartbeat or two. So if you are to visit Europe, don't forget to add Linz to your itinerary.
I have split this post in two parts, here is the first one. These pics were clicked at the city center and Donaupark. I hope you like them.

With my little Princess Veda

Emerald and Butterfly

Blazer: Mango
Top: United Colors of Benetton
Necklace: Shoppers stop
Watch: Fossil
Jeans: Vibes
Shoes: Carlton London
These photos were clicked last week but could not post them. For I've been in the middle of this unstable state of packing and sorting once again.  I just went over all the final details for the trip, still feeling restless though. This time I did all the packing by myself and learned a lot in the process. Will be travelling tomorrow with my little princess. Its not easy to travel with a little child. I've pressed myself really hard to think straight and not letting myself forget any of her essentials.

Now that I am almost done with the packing, I can feel the excitement about my upcoming journey to Europe. Just realized that this is an outfit post and I am supposed to write about the outfit. I don't think that I can put my thoughts about the outfit together as of now. So just want to finish it by telling that I wore it on a family dinner.

Thanks for reading and I hope that you liked the outfit. Will share my experience, once reached. Till then bye bye.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull

People who make their own rules when they know they are right ...people who get a special pleasure out of doing something well (even if only for themselves) people who know there's more to this whole living thing than meets the eye: they will be with Jonathan Seagull all the way. Others may simply escape into a delightful adventure about freedom and flight.
- Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach

These few are my current favorites. Specially this book 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull'. This book is very inspiring. "Why can't you just do normal things like everybody else.", if you've ever had such a line made on you, this book is absolutely for you.

I recently spotted a shirt having stones,  somewhat similar in the texture these stones are creating. Only bad was, I couldn't get the size.

I've read somewhere that we can only prime our mind subconsciously. I keep these magazines about. I can't say much of the effect they have on the subconscious but I really like to flip through them.
