It’s In The Bag—Find Great Deals Instantly| Online Shopping Trends in India |


The shopping landscape has changed so drastically over the last decade, from how to shop, to new merchandise now available at your fingertips, and it’s only going to get better! The shifting landscape, from on site to online—bricks to clicks—has been more like a landslide. Chances are you’ve had a front row seat to this change, and noticed it in your own habits as well.  If you’re an early adopter, it’s possible that your mobile phone is your go-to device to find everything from a restaurant for your date this weekend, to ordering the Abercrombie and Fitch shirt that you plan on dazzling your companion with. You are fortunate enough to live in a country where the Internet is infiltrating at a galloping pace, and the speed of it is second-to-none, according to the site EFYTimes.
 
 

Who’s Shopping Online?

According to a Google India Reporter, three factors are driving online shopping: Commuters, those living in a remote area (non metros), and mobile phones.  If you’ve used your mobile phone or PC to check out shopping sites, to subscribe to their emails and connect with them on your favorite social sites (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are really great for sharing items) then you’re among the growing number of Indians who are discovering how ecommerce stores are helping to simplify their lives.  Now that the Internet has gained a saturation point, as well as mobile phones (which have passed up PCs, by the way), the Internet is becoming the shopping destination of choice.  With improved shopping tools, allowing you to zoom into a product and see how it looks from many angles, online shopping is becoming easier and actually more fun, as you can do it without the pressure of a sales associate and on your own time.  Plus, most online stores have the same product for a lower price than a brick and mortar retail site, according to the website Compete. 

Everything is coming up roses:  if you’re like most people, you’re experiencing an improved standard of living and you have more money to spend than ever before.  You require a high quality product, and you demand a certain level of customer service. The questions are, then, how do these demands translate to shopping online?  How can you guarantee that the fine product you’re looking at online is the product that you receive, and that your high expectations for being taken care as a customer are met?

Great Quality Products

One particular brand of ecommerce site, the Flash Sale, is especially popular among Indians, and for good reason says Forbes online.  Well known Flash Sale sites, , work with top tier brands to bring merchandise to the public at rock bottom prices, so you can purchase high quality products for yourself and your family without breaking the bank, they also come up with offers such as deal of the day in India to provide customers with added discounts on a daily basis. They’re also a great place to discover new brands, restaurants, fun activities and new fashion trends.  A Compete survey states that 54.3% of shoppers said they would use a flash sale website as a tool when shopping.

Top Notch User Experience

Great quality products are essential, as is having the best customer service and user experience.  The early adopters are very discerning and another website is just a click away, so it’s important that the site has a masterful, intuitive flow and that the customer service is truly customer-centric.  On the other side of the early adopters are those new to the Internet who may have a fear of ordering online because it’s a very different experience from going to a retail store and picking out the exact merchandise you’re going to buy.  To ensure happy customers it’s important that what you get is what you ordered.  This also reinforces confidence in ordering more products online, and also increasing the total sale price. Many sites have common complaints about shipping, logging in and customer service; all of which should be corrected so they don’t impede establishing a strong foothold with your growing customer base. 

As you continue to return to a retail site, do they act like they know you, much like the retailer down the road?  Are they familiar with your past purchases and can make recommendations because they know what you like?  Look for these things.  Chances are, a first class retailer will offer promotions that are very specific to your needs.  If they’re doing their job, they’re aware of how valuable of a customer you are and what your preferences are, even if you haven’t explicitly told them so, your past purchases should be an indication.

Going Mobile

If you’ve fallen in love with a site and want to go steady, then download the app, as they’re typically free. Generally, once you have the app on your phone the site will send you alerts to special sales and other valuable information.  For instance, for a Flash Sale site, chances are you’ll receive notification before a sale starts and which brands are available.  As your loyalty increases, chances are you’ll move up to first tier status and have access to the sale before the general public.  How great is that?  Of course, once you receive the notification, you can decide if it’s a brand and/or product that you’re in the market for and make plans to scroll the site once the sale goes live.  If it’s not something that interests you today, you know that you’re on their list for an update tomorrow; you don’t have to remember to go to the site and check.  With our busy lives, this is a valuable daily update!

Why Shop Daily Deals?

Are you a frugal shopper or a fashionista?  There are so many flash sales, you’ll definitely find one that meets your personality type.  And chances are you may be a frugal shopper for one item type, such as home goods, but willing to pay more for a certain item, such as an A&F shirt for a gift. Online daily deals are not an event that you have to plan for, like weekly grocery shopping; you can peruse the site at your convenience and build it into your otherwise busy day.

My Summer Wishlist | Persunmall.com | Fashion Blog India

I'm quite relieved to be home for a couple of days and enjoying my stay with family. Summer is at its peak but I thought that this morning I'd indulge myself with a little bit of window shopping and write a wish-list post that I currently want for summer and which I’ll be getting soon, so here they are:



1 - My love for polka dots and skirts grows along with this Polka dots Elastic waist skirt in white and they are sinfully 90s but I love them for that. There's something really sexy to me about a puffy skirt, and the polka dots just adds to that. I would like to dress this down with a casual grey logo tee and a denim jacket  for a daytime look.

2- Believe it or not, I still don’t own any transparent pouches/bags. They’ve been trending for a long time and I’ve had my eye on them since then but I never really got the chance to buy some, but this summer I’m for sure getting this Rivets Transparent Bag in Green.. oh so summery Isn't it ?
 
3- Maxis are a must have for summers and since I am planning for a beach holiday soon I have my eyes on this Bohemian Purple pleated maxi dress
 
4- I’ve had my eye on these babies for a long time. I would have loved to buy the originals from Valentino but I don’t think can afford them now ( until Santa decides to come in April this year)  so I’m waiting to find the  nearly perfect ones here Studded T-bar Sandals
 
 5- Persunmall is certainly my favorite store for jewelery and accessories,  and currently I adore this Studded Iphone case from their new accessories collection. Normally I'm not a big fan all this bling and studs on my phone case, but for this I will happily make an exception
 
 
What's on your wish list lately? Which of these items do you like the most?

How to Style a Kaftan | Sbuys Review | Fashion Blogger India

Although Winter is technically my favorite season( there's nothing like cozying up in fluffy sweaters all the time and staying warm with a coffee mug and a good book) summer is undoubtedly the most anticipated by my closet, maintaining a degree of whimsy and femininity through the airy sheer tops, neutral color palette, wonderful drapes and movement of the hemlines itself.

Browsing through the website of Sbuys, this gorgeous kaftan caught my eye right away. The color is lighter than my usual tastes, but the black and silver overall border counteracts this and the attached   necklace is such a gorgeous unique detail keeping the overall style of the kaftan within my comfort as well as style zone.

This Kaftan arrived through my letterbox only in a few days after placing the order and I was so excited I had to put it on and take some snaps straight away. It’s quite a statement piece in itself and can be hard to accessorize and if at all, accessories need to fell into place perfectly like a stack of bangles or some bracelets and a watch and you are ready for work or play. Believe me there's something really sexy to me about this kaftan, and the sheer material just adds to that.
 
Sbuys.in, is the latest entry in the world of online fashion selling. Their  new Spring Summer’14 range of tops, dresses and skirts are divided into separate collection of Pastels, Aztecs, Denims and Color Blocking. With utmost focus on key details and the finery used in crafting each and every piece, Sbuys promises to stand out in the online selling world by creating a niche based on the fact that it’s comfortably affordable.

Sbuys seems to be one of those brands that will gear up to make some changes to my usual summer maxi routines, which I really appreciate!! Among others, there are two trends that the brand seems to be espousing this Spring/Summer that really caught my eye. One is a tendency towards cropped tops , sheer peplum panels, lace detailing on neck and sleeves and the use of tie-die prints.The other is a play on lengths, as evidenced by hemlines that are longer or shorter than the standard fare.

Sbuys Boutique collection has stocked almost everything I'm looking for in my summer wardrobe wishlist: stripes, color, prints and silhouettes that are as modest as they are unusual. The Boutique brings forth the new Spring Summer range by our 5 favorite designers ANS, We – Nature & Me, Miss Grace, Ruffles and Gosford Clothing.The Kaftan in the pictures below is by the designer Shilpa Kirpal who sells her brand Ruffles exclusively on sbuys.in.
 
A new initiative by sbuys.in is the set up of SBUYS Cares. When someone shops at sbuys, a sizeable portion of the bill value is donated towards the development of underprivileged children who are a part of their NGO Arpan. Through many such initiatives, sbuys believe to give a new dimension to the lives of the underprivileged while giving a chance to shoppers like us to do good for the society at large. Isn't it amazing initiative.
 
 



 
Do you see yourself wearing Kaftans this summer ? Needless to say I’ve bookmarked Sbuys and I’ve got a few items in my shopping cart ready for me to press submit. what’s your take on Sbuys? Do you like what you see? Have you purchased from them lately and if so, what did you get?

Maxi dress with Denim Vest outfit | Whatever Denim Vest | Fashion Blogger

There was a time in my life when jeans/denims dominated my outfit choices. Being the most versatile items in the closet , I knew they would gel up with everything to make a perfect outfit also at the same time denims give a kind of comfort and security while leaving home, a comfort while moving anywhere in the city and a security from peeping eyes.
 
But over a period of time my wardrobe has become so much more adventurous and experimental so that maxi's and dresses have become my new wardrobe staple and my family and friends are loving this new avatar as much as I do. Also maxis seem to be more comfortable /roomy/airy and flattering to any body types than denims and also help in hiding those extra winter bulges
 
Maxis are ultra feminine and a denim jacket/vest adds so much structure to a long printed maxi dress. Although the denim vest has been a staple piece in the fashion industry for decades and It’s one of those garments that literally can go with anything and everything with such an ease but what I am loving the most is this new avatar of the denim vest  with studs, metallic chains, stars and patchwork and hand painted backs which makes it a statement piece and pulls the look together.
 
The denim vest with maxi's is one of my favorite combinations as I usually pair denim vests over my dresses when I want something extra. And the moment I saw this awesome denim vest with a painted 'whatever' back patch from Romwe , I fell in love completely. How many of you wear this trend too? Or if not, after seeing this post, do you plan on wearing something similar?

Life in Pictures | Weekend Shenanigans | Indian Fashion Blog

I can now feel summer at its peak, while cleaning the windows today , I left them open for while in the morning and it was so pretty seeing the sun streaming in and those beautiful rays falling on everything.  Even my two little pet fishes welcomed  the sunshine with open arms as it  brightened everything right from that old grey rug to the coffee table and  soon I could clearly see a layer of dust on the magazine covers(oh Sun you act really jerk sometimes taking that little moment of delight from me and showing me the reality).

I'm certainly looking forward to a few days filled with rest, chatter, cuddles, walks, lounging, reading more often and sleeping. With the weather starting to change I have a strong desire to make changes and some dramatic changes around me, be it the interiors of my home or my wardrobe and what better than neutrals. A dash of neutral is like a breath of fresh air for me right now I think that the overall aesthetic effect of whites and lights is always soothing on the body as well as pleasing to the eyes. And here comes the first Pastel Saree in my wardrobe from here
 

                                    A Little Party never Killed Anybody #Partytime with #BFF Outfit from here


     A Prefect way to start my day #Healthy Breakfast :Veggie Sandwiches with Raw Mango and mint juice #LovingSummers
 
                                                       
 Whatever Denim Vest from here is ideal for updating my everyday favorites and what I love is its denim blue hue

 
We love our share of fried, steamed and Indian style overcooked veggies with overdose of spices and oil but nothing can beat the refreshing goodness of salads. Healthy + Yummy = Homemade Veggie Wraps with Sauteed mushroom and Bell Peppers in olive oil and crushed garlic, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, prunes and loads of veggies with generous drizzle of thousand Island dressing and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.
        
 
Its Fridaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy  again = Party time and no brownie points for guessing the outfit  is yet again from my favorite online shopping brand for women 
 
 
 Selfie Time with New Arrivals from here and don't miss my favorite Oxfords in the pic
 
          
Doing something mundane like grocery shopping with someone special makes it so much fun!
It can also be a learning experience because you learn how the other person shops and what products they prefer and why.Antara and I always exchange ideas when we are together and we encourage each other to be better wives and mothers. We also do this with our other bestie, Pooja ( who is currently enjoying her much awaited stay at her mom's place....and we are so jealous of you) !!




 Annnd that's all the random shenanigans I have for you today. Add me on Instagram @fashionquot for more and stay in touch through my Facebook Page here
XOXO

It’s In The Bag—Find Great Deals Instantly| Online Shopping Trends in India |


The shopping landscape has changed so drastically over the last decade, from how to shop, to new merchandise now available at your fingertips, and it’s only going to get better! The shifting landscape, from on site to online—bricks to clicks—has been more like a landslide. Chances are you’ve had a front row seat to this change, and noticed it in your own habits as well.  If you’re an early adopter, it’s possible that your mobile phone is your go-to device to find everything from a restaurant for your date this weekend, to ordering the Abercrombie and Fitch shirt that you plan on dazzling your companion with. You are fortunate enough to live in a country where the Internet is infiltrating at a galloping pace, and the speed of it is second-to-none, according to the site EFYTimes.
 
 

Who’s Shopping Online?

According to a Google India Reporter, three factors are driving online shopping: Commuters, those living in a remote area (non metros), and mobile phones.  If you’ve used your mobile phone or PC to check out shopping sites, to subscribe to their emails and connect with them on your favorite social sites (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are really great for sharing items) then you’re among the growing number of Indians who are discovering how ecommerce stores are helping to simplify their lives.  Now that the Internet has gained a saturation point, as well as mobile phones (which have passed up PCs, by the way), the Internet is becoming the shopping destination of choice.  With improved shopping tools, allowing you to zoom into a product and see how it looks from many angles, online shopping is becoming easier and actually more fun, as you can do it without the pressure of a sales associate and on your own time.  Plus, most online stores have the same product for a lower price than a brick and mortar retail site, according to the website Compete.

The questions are, then, how do these demands translate to shopping online?  How can you guarantee that the fine product you’re looking at online is the product that you receive, and that your high expectations for being taken care as a customer are met?

Life in Pictures | Weekend Shenanigans | Indian Fashion Blog

I can now feel summer at its peak, while cleaning the windows today , I left them open for while in the morning and it was so pretty seeing the sun streaming in and those beautiful rays falling on everything.  Even my two little pet fishes welcomed  the sunshine with open arms as it  brightened everything right from that old grey rug to the coffee table and  soon I could clearly see a layer of dust on the magazine covers(oh Sun you act really jerk sometimes taking that little moment of delight from me and showing me the reality).

I'm certainly looking forward to a few days filled with rest, chatter, cuddles, walks, lounging, reading more often and sleeping. With the weather starting to change I have a strong desire to make changes and some dramatic changes around me, be it the interiors of my home or my wardrobe and what better than neutrals. A dash of neutral is like a breath of fresh air for me right now I think that the overall aesthetic effect of whites and lights is always soothing on the body as well as pleasing to the eyes.

It’s In The Bag—Find Great Deals Instantly| Online Shopping Trends in India |


The shopping landscape has changed so drastically over the last decade, from how to shop, to new merchandise now available at your fingertips, and it’s only going to get better! The shifting landscape, from on site to online—bricks to clicks—has been more like a landslide. Chances are you’ve had a front row seat to this change, and noticed it in your own habits as well.  If you’re an early adopter, it’s possible that your mobile phone is your go-to device to find everything from a restaurant for your date this weekend, to ordering the Abercrombie and Fitch shirt that you plan on dazzling your companion with. You are fortunate enough to live in a country where the Internet is infiltrating at a galloping pace, and the speed of it is second-to-none, according to the site EFYTimes.
 
 

Who’s Shopping Online?

According to a Google India Reporter, three factors are driving online shopping: Commuters, those living in a remote area (non metros), and mobile phones.  If you’ve used your mobile phone or PC to check out shopping sites, to subscribe to their emails and connect with them on your favorite social sites (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are really great for sharing items) then you’re among the growing number of Indians who are discovering how ecommerce stores are helping to simplify their lives.  Now that the Internet has gained a saturation point, as well as mobile phones (which have passed up PCs, by the way), the Internet is becoming the shopping destination of choice.  With improved shopping tools, allowing you to zoom into a product and see how it looks from many angles, online shopping is becoming easier and actually more fun, as you can do it without the pressure of a sales associate and on your own time.  Plus, most online stores have the same product for a lower price than a brick and mortar retail site, according to the website Compete. 

Everything is coming up roses:  if you’re like most people, you’re experiencing an improved standard of living and you have more money to spend than ever before.  You require a high quality product, and you demand a certain level of customer service. The questions are, then, how do these demands translate to shopping online?  How can you guarantee that the fine product you’re looking at online is the product that you receive, and that your high expectations for being taken care as a customer are met?

Great Quality Products

One particular brand of ecommerce site, the Flash Sale, is especially popular among Indians, and for good reason says Forbes online.  Well known Flash Sale sites, , work with top tier brands to bring merchandise to the public at rock bottom prices, so you can purchase high quality products for yourself and your family without breaking the bank, they also come up with offers such as deal of the day in India to provide customers with added discounts on a daily basis. They’re also a great place to discover new brands, restaurants, fun activities and new fashion trends.  A Compete survey states that 54.3% of shoppers said they would use a flash sale website as a tool when shopping.

Top Notch User Experience

Great quality products are essential, as is having the best customer service and user experience.  The early adopters are very discerning and another website is just a click away, so it’s important that the site has a masterful, intuitive flow and that the customer service is truly customer-centric.  On the other side of the early adopters are those new to the Internet who may have a fear of ordering online because it’s a very different experience from going to a retail store and picking out the exact merchandise you’re going to buy.  To ensure happy customers it’s important that what you get is what you ordered.  This also reinforces confidence in ordering more products online, and also increasing the total sale price. Many sites have common complaints about shipping, logging in and customer service; all of which should be corrected so they don’t impede establishing a strong foothold with your growing customer base. 

As you continue to return to a retail site, do they act like they know you, much like the retailer down the road?  Are they familiar with your past purchases and can make recommendations because they know what you like?  Look for these things.  Chances are, a first class retailer will offer promotions that are very specific to your needs.  If they’re doing their job, they’re aware of how valuable of a customer you are and what your preferences are, even if you haven’t explicitly told them so, your past purchases should be an indication.

Going Mobile

If you’ve fallen in love with a site and want to go steady, then download the app, as they’re typically free. Generally, once you have the app on your phone the site will send you alerts to special sales and other valuable information.  For instance, for a Flash Sale site, chances are you’ll receive notification before a sale starts and which brands are available.  As your loyalty increases, chances are you’ll move up to first tier status and have access to the sale before the general public.  How great is that?  Of course, once you receive the notification, you can decide if it’s a brand and/or product that you’re in the market for and make plans to scroll the site once the sale goes live.  If it’s not something that interests you today, you know that you’re on their list for an update tomorrow; you don’t have to remember to go to the site and check.  With our busy lives, this is a valuable daily update!

Why Shop Daily Deals?

Are you a frugal shopper or a fashionista?  There are so many flash sales, you’ll definitely find one that meets your personality type.  And chances are you may be a frugal shopper for one item type, such as home goods, but willing to pay more for a certain item, such as an A&F shirt for a gift. Online daily deals are not an event that you have to plan for, like weekly grocery shopping; you can peruse the site at your convenience and build it into your otherwise busy day.

My Summer Wishlist | Persunmall.com | Fashion Blog India

I'm quite relieved to be home for a couple of days and enjoying my stay with family. Summer is at its peak but I thought that this morning I'd indulge myself with a little bit of window shopping and write a wish-list post that I currently want for summer and which I’ll be getting soon, so here they are:



1 - My love for polka dots and skirts grows along with this Polka dots Elastic waist skirt in white and they are sinfully 90s but I love them for that. There's something really sexy to me about a puffy skirt, and the polka dots just adds to that. I would like to dress this down with a casual grey logo tee and a denim jacket  for a daytime look.

2- Believe it or not, I still don’t own any transparent pouches/bags. They’ve been trending for a long time and I’ve had my eye on them since then but I never really got the chance to buy some, but this summer I’m for sure getting this Rivets Transparent Bag in Green.. oh so summery Isn't it ?
 
3- Maxis are a must have for summers and since I am planning for a beach holiday soon I have my eyes on this Bohemian Purple pleated maxi dress
 
4- I’ve had my eye on these babies for a long time. I would have loved to buy the originals from Valentino but I don’t think can afford them now ( until Santa decides to come in April this year)  so I’m waiting to find the  nearly perfect ones here Studded T-bar Sandals
 
 5- Persunmall is certainly my favorite store for jewelery and accessories,  and currently I adore this Studded Iphone case from their new accessories collection. Normally I'm not a big fan all this bling and studs on my phone case, but for this I will happily make an exception
 
 
What's on your wish list lately? Which of these items do you like the most?

Rich stripes on the blouse and the lace detailing on the drapes makes it super stylish and at the same time adds a royal cum vintage appeal to it and I knew at the spur of the moment that it had to me mine.

How to Style a Kaftan | Sbuys Review | Fashion Blogger India

Although Winter is technically my favorite season( there's nothing like cozying up in fluffy sweaters all the time and staying warm with a coffee mug and a good book) summer is undoubtedly the most anticipated by my closet, maintaining a degree of whimsy and femininity through the airy sheer tops, neutral color palette, wonderful drapes and movement of the hemlines itself.

Browsing through the website of Sbuys, this gorgeous kaftan caught my eye right away. The color is lighter than my usual tastes, but the black and silver overall border counteracts this and the attached   necklace is such a gorgeous unique detail keeping the overall style of the kaftan within my comfort as well as style zone.

This Kaftan arrived through my letterbox only in a few days after placing the order and I was so excited I had to put it on and take some snaps straight away. It’s quite a statement piece in itself and can be hard to accessorize and if at all, accessories need to fell into place perfectly like a stack of bangles or some bracelets and a watch and you are ready for work or play. Believe me there's something really sexy to me about this kaftan, and the sheer material just adds to that.
 
Sbuys.in, is the latest entry in the world of online fashion selling. Their  new Spring Summer’14 range of tops, dresses and skirts are divided into separate collection of Pastels, Aztecs, Denims and Color Blocking. With utmost focus on key details and the finery used in crafting each and every piece, Sbuys promises to stand out in the online selling world by creating a niche based on the fact that it’s comfortably affordable.

Sbuys seems to be one of those brands that will gear up to make some changes to my usual summer maxi routines, which I really appreciate!! Among others, there are two trends that the brand seems to be espousing this Spring/Summer that really caught my eye. One is a tendency towards cropped tops , sheer peplum panels, lace detailing on neck and sleeves and the use of tie-die prints.The other is a play on lengths, as evidenced by hemlines that are longer or shorter than the standard fare.

Sbuys Boutique collection has stocked almost everything I'm looking for in my summer wardrobe wishlist: stripes, color, prints and silhouettes that are as modest as they are unusual. The Boutique brings forth the new Spring Summer range by our 5 favorite designers ANS, We – Nature & Me, Miss Grace, Ruffles and Gosford Clothing.The Kaftan in the pictures below is by the designer Shilpa Kirpal who sells her brand Ruffles exclusively on sbuys.in.
 
A new initiative by sbuys.in is the set up of SBUYS Cares. When someone shops at sbuys, a sizeable portion of the bill value is donated towards the development of underprivileged children who are a part of their NGO Arpan. Through many such initiatives, sbuys believe to give a new dimension to the lives of the underprivileged while giving a chance to shoppers like us to do good for the society at large. Isn't it amazing initiative.
 
 



 
Do you see yourself wearing Kaftans this summer ? Needless to say I’ve bookmarked Sbuys and I’ve got a few items in my shopping cart ready for me to press submit. what’s your take on Sbuys? Do you like what you see? Have you purchased from them lately and if so, what did you get?

Maxi dress with Denim Vest outfit | Whatever Denim Vest | Fashion Blogger

There was a time in my life when jeans/denims dominated my outfit choices. Being the most versatile items in the closet , I knew they would gel up with everything to make a perfect outfit also at the same time denims give a kind of comfort and security while leaving home, a comfort while moving anywhere in the city and a security from peeping eyes.
 
But over a period of time my wardrobe has become so much more adventurous and experimental so that maxi's and dresses have become my new wardrobe staple and my family and friends are loving this new avatar as much as I do. Also maxis seem to be more comfortable /roomy/airy and flattering to any body types than denims and also help in hiding those extra winter bulges
 
Maxis are ultra feminine and a denim jacket/vest adds so much structure to a long printed maxi dress. Although the denim vest has been a staple piece in the fashion industry for decades and It’s one of those garments that literally can go with anything and everything with such an ease but what I am loving the most is this new avatar of the denim vest  with studs, metallic chains, stars and patchwork and hand painted backs which makes it a statement piece and pulls the look together.
 
The denim vest with maxi's is one of my favorite combinations as I usually pair denim vests over my dresses when I want something extra. And the moment I saw this awesome denim vest with a painted 'whatever' back patch from Romwe , I fell in love completely. How many of you wear this trend too? Or if not, after seeing this post, do you plan on wearing something similar?

I can now feel summer at its peak, while cleaning the windows today , I left them open for while in the morning and it was so pretty seeing the sun streaming in and those beautiful rays falling on everything.  Even my two little pet fishes welcomed  the sunshine with open arms as it  brightened everything right from that old grey rug to the coffee table and  soon I could clearly see a layer of dust on the magazine covers(oh Sun you act really jerk sometimes taking that little moment of delight from me and showing me the reality).

I'm certainly looking forward to a few days filled with rest, chatter, cuddles, walks, lounging, reading more often and sleeping. With the weather starting to change I have a strong desire to make changes and some dramatic changes around me, be it the interiors of my home or my wardrobe and what better than neutrals. A dash of neutral is like a breath of fresh air for me right now I think that the overall aesthetic effect of whites and lights is always soothing on the body as well as pleasing to the eyes.

Sbuys Boutique collection has stocked almost everything I'm looking for in my summer wardrobe wishlist: stripes, color, prints and silhouettes that are as modest as they are unusual. The Boutique brings forth the new Spring Summer range by our 5 favorite designers ANS, We – Nature & Me, Miss Grace, Ruffles and Gosford Clothing.The Kaftan in the pictures below is by the designer Shilpa Kirpal who sells her brand Ruffles exclusively on sbuys.in.
 
A new initiative by sbuys.in is the set up of SBUYS Cares. When someone shops at sbuys, a sizeable portion of the bill value is donated towards the development of underprivileged children who are a part of their NGO Arpan. Through many such initiatives, sbuys believe to give a new dimension to the lives of the underprivileged while giving a chance to shoppers like us to do good for the society at large. Isn't it amazing initiative.
 
 



 
Do you see yourself wearing Kaftans this summer ? Needless to say I’ve bookmarked Sbuys and I’ve got a few items in my shopping cart ready for me to press submit. what’s your take on Sbuys? Do you like what you see? Have you purchased from them lately and if so, what did you get?

Maxi dress with Denim Vest outfit | Whatever Denim Vest | Fashion Blogger

There was a time in my life when jeans/denims dominated my outfit choices. Being the most versatile items in the closet , I knew they would gel up with everything to make a perfect outfit also at the same time denims give a kind of comfort and security while leaving home, a comfort while moving anywhere in the city and a security from peeping eyes.
 
But over a period of time my wardrobe has become so much more adventurous and experimental so that maxi's and dresses have become my new wardrobe staple and my family and friends are loving this new avatar as much as I do. Also maxis seem to be more comfortable /roomy/airy and flattering to any body types than denims and also help in hiding those extra winter bulges
 
Maxis are ultra feminine and a denim jacket/vest adds so much structure to a long printed maxi dress. Although the denim vest has been a staple piece in the fashion industry for decades and It’s one of those garments that literally can go with anything and everything with such an ease but what I am loving the most is this new avatar of the denim vest  with studs, metallic chains, stars and patchwork and hand painted backs which makes it a statement piece and pulls the look together.
 
The denim vest with maxi's is one of my favorite combinations as I usually pair denim vests over my dresses when I want something extra. And the moment I saw this awesome denim vest with a painted 'whatever' back patch from Romwe , I fell in love completely. How many of you wear this trend too? Or if not, after seeing this post, do you plan on wearing something similar?

Life in Pictures | Weekend Shenanigans | Indian Fashion Blog

I can now feel summer at its peak, while cleaning the windows today , I left them open for while in the morning and it was so pretty seeing the sun streaming in and those beautiful rays falling on everything.  Even my two little pet fishes welcomed  the sunshine with open arms as it  brightened everything right from that old grey rug to the coffee table and  soon I could clearly see a layer of dust on the magazine covers(oh Sun you act really jerk sometimes taking that little moment of delight from me and showing me the reality).

I'm certainly looking forward to a few days filled with rest, chatter, cuddles, walks, lounging, reading more often and sleeping. With the weather starting to change I have a strong desire to make changes and some dramatic changes around me, be it the interiors of my home or my wardrobe and what better than neutrals. A dash of neutral is like a breath of fresh air for me right now I think that the overall aesthetic effect of whites and lights is always soothing on the body as well as pleasing to the eyes. And here comes the first Pastel Saree in my wardrobe from here

 Whatever Denim Vest from here is ideal for updating my everyday favorites and what I love is its denim blue hue

 
We love our share of fried, steamed and Indian style overcooked veggies with overdose of spices and oil but nothing can beat the refreshing goodness of salads. Healthy + Yummy = Homemade Veggie Wraps with Sauteed mushroom and Bell Peppers in olive oil and crushed garlic, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, prunes and loads of veggies with generous drizzle of thousand Island dressing and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.
        
 
Its Fridaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy  again = Party time and no brownie points for guessing the outfit  is yet again from my favorite online shopping brand for women

Doing something mundane like grocery shopping with someone special makes it so much fun!
It can also be a learning experience because you learn how the other person shops and what products they prefer and why.Antara and I always exchange ideas when we are together and we encourage each other to be better wives and mothers. We also do this with our other bestie, Pooja ( who is currently enjoying her much awaited stay at her mom's place....and we are so jealous of you) !!
