#Wedding Dressing Without Any Stressing


Ethnic Co-ord with Cape | HippiequeXAnj

‘Tis the time to see everyone around you get married and bid goodbye to the singledom they shared with you! It comes with lavish invites to the even more lavish destinations and that’s where the fundamental question of ‘what will I wear?’ haunts us like the apocalypse.

After skimming the fashion markets for an ideal label which caters to your taste and pockets, I came across Anj Kreations—A stand-alone store in Bandra. It houses some great options for all the functions you’d have to attend including the wedding. From beautiful ethnic dresses you can wear for mehendi, exquisite lehengas for sangeet to sexy gowns for the black-tie dinner you know you’re going to get sloshed at, this store has you covered! The store with a big blue door is hard to miss if your heart yearns for some head-turning pieces you’d like to flaunt at your BFF’s wedding.

I had to go for a reception dinner and the wedding for which I chose two of their most unique pieces that instantly had my heart. A gorgeous darker-than-blood red gown for the reception dinner and an elegant crop-top skirt with a cape for the main wedding. It was a great choice for the winter chill as well! 😉

Raiding my mother’s closet has a charm of its own. No amount of shopping from a designer label will give me as much happiness as re-inventing something from my twin’s (my genes have taken the phrase—Like mother like daughter, very literally) vintage collection.

 

One fine day, a long long time ago, a Rajasthani sleeveless jacket from my mom’s closet, featuring intricate mirror work and embroidery, met my eyes and I knew exactly what needs to be done with it. I snipped out the back of it completely and cut the neckline according to its mirror work and—Voila! Another vintage jacket bites the new age dust! In my defense, at least I made a good use of it. I packed this top for a great adventure in Gokarna (travel blog soon to follow). A pair of sturdy, ripped shorts and a big desi tote bag made this look just right for the new form of my mom’s vintage top.

Have you ever done some experiment with your mom’s closet? I can’t wait to hear it. Go on, inspire me!

#Festive Season Is The Reason


Happy Diwali Happy Diwali f4 Happy Diwali Happy Diwali Happy Diwali

There is really no festival like Diwali. The festival not only illuminates our home but also showers us with gifts, relatives (who make time to come and visit) and loads of sweets (did I mention my love for kheer?). To dress up for so much fun is another task! Isn’t it? So out came my favourite anarkali. I know that we’re supposed to wear something new on this day but the new things I bought were far away from anything traditional (blame it on H&M!).

So this look is all about the regal vibes. Since the outfit in itself is so dressy with all the different kinds of work on it, I chose to go with just a pair of statement jhumkas. That’s all the accessory this look needed! A pair of my current favourite footwear (yes, I’m obsessed with juttis!) completed the look with ease.

So share with me how you celebrate Diwali and most importantly, what did you wear?!

Since we’re about to dive into the festive season (not to mention the grand wedding season) here are some ethnic inspiration you can grab.

1. All shine

2. Embellished elegance

3. Busy prints for the win

4. The cape story

5. Sari not sorry

6. All-white everything!
