The colored denim trend has been raging for quite a while now. I have’nt dipped my pretty legs in all available colors. But the 2 colors that do happen to really work for me are Canvas Green which im wearing in this post and Coral which you will pobably see in another one. Just the deviation from the usual indigo denim color makes the denims somehow appear lighter and bearable for summer-wear. Plus I love color!
It has been, not what seems like but literally, AGES since I did my last outfit post. Had sort of lost my way but found it! Well here goes.
Im sure it won’t be news if I told the that Delhi summers are nothing to be joked about! Its merciless. The heat travels in a wave and if you aren’t prepared you are caught like Bambi in headlights.
Recently there was the #SuperSaturday sale at VeroModa, Only and Jack&Jones with a flat 60% off on everything, just for that day. Needless to say, I had to be there.

It had been so so long…well not all that long….but *seemed like forever* long since I had taken a break. From work, the city, the traffic, the daily chores, the deciding what to eat, the deciding what NOT to eat, the obsessing some more about work, the television….
And ofcourse his birthday was coming over the weekend, so it was there staring at me – the idea of getting away for the weekend.
I am definitely no pro when it comes to make-up but I have been lucky enough to have picked up on a few good tips, tricks and basics through the years. Sarting with my very first time with make-up, my 10th grade farewell party. A complete disaster make-up-wise no doubt. But after a week of shame I learnt to pick myself up and experiment some more.
Here just a quick roundup of the basic stuff that you’ll find in my case
Went to the Flea by Nite by Cosmopolitan Magazine recently held at Olive Bar & Kitchen, Mehrauli. The place was packed, people having a good time and even better drinks. The stalls were done up pretty and the products ranged from summer garments, to accessories to shoes and bags. Fun filled night.
So I had just joined Klout very recently that they told me I was eligible for one of their perks! Getting 50 business cards for myself from MOO! Awesome news! The very same day I claimed the perk, uploaded about 30 photographs that I wanted to be printed at the back of the cards, gave my information, paid for the shipment charges and voila! I was set!
It was definitely a good feeling to be a part of the celebrations of the launch of ‘Lifestyle Pakistan’ – a fashion, music and food extravaganza from Pakistan at the Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi. To become a part of Pakistani traditional design, not very different from our own, but you could feel those small hints of deviation from our own sensibilities, not only in the garments and embroideries and patterns but also ofcourse the gorgeous food!
Theres something about the beginning of summers…you want to completely change your wardrobe and shop ALL the time! Ofcourse you can’t leave shoes far behind.
Now I dont have a bank balance that can afford these shoes…or even one for that matter! But a girl can dream.
So here is a selection of shoes that im currently day dreaming about and obsessing over. It almost seems like a mirage in the sheer heat of the season though.
It was a close gathering of fine people from the fashion fraternity and the employees of Lecoanet Hemant for the showcasing of their Summer 2012 Collection. People were mingling, sipping on wine, eating some cheese when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, quite like a ‘fLashmob’ but not quite either…women…wearing the new collection, walked into the foyer area. Women with real bodies and real faces and real personalities. Right from Lecoanet Hemant’s employees to designers, entrepreneurs and more, women from all walks of life showcased the collection in what was a brilliant and id say bold concept. I could see Hemant written all over this idea. And that is why I have so much respect for the guy.
When its a Sunday and you work five days a week, you tend to make the absolute most of it – by forced habit. So naturally I turn to my best friend – BEER. And what better place to have it than Striker, in Gurgaon, where i’d like to think that its freshly brewed just for me on Sundays…
This time they were out of Jazzy Light so we had Weiss Blues…yummy in my tummy!
Uma Gawd is a very well known London based Drag-Artist who was in town to perform as part of her ‘Dragged Around The World’ Tour and it was an entertaining delight to watch her move, sing, dance and capture everyones attention at Cheri, the restaurant at One Qutab.
We were lucky enough to have been blessed with pleasant weather but Uma took the heat to another level. As a finale Uma sang and performed to ‘Shiela ki jawani’ as well.
Here are some pics from the lovely evening:

You say #Cointreauversial; I say ‘whaaa’?
Sponsored by Cointreau – The iconic French orange Liqueur and arranged by tulleeho.com – beverage education and training, The Rendez-Vous Privé is an evening hosted by a trained Cointreau mixologist, in this case it being the very lovely and talented Sweta Mohanty from tulleeho, at your home where the workshop involves all the guests in cocktail making and appreciation.
It was a great evening with girls, dress-up, make-up, fashion tips and a lot more. A special workshop where the chicas from Marie Claire shared fabulous fashion tips for spring, wardrobe ideas and styling advice at the MANGO store all ripe with their New Spring Summer Collection. Their was a fine guestlist and even stylist Pernia Qureshi shared 3 chic looks exclusively from MANGO’s new collection and ideas on how to rock them!
The evening was concluded with an array of gorgeous sweet treats for the guests and all the guests were given an exclusive discount on the new collection just for that evening. All in all fun, fabulous and très chic.
What happens when you have your best people around you and your best alcohol around too?!….well don’t ask me because I dont really remember much. But one thing I do remember is it was all a big blast!
It was a working saturday, but then this is exactly what some saturdays are meant to be – work deprived and alcohol imbibed.
Joined by close friends, family, tummy-happy food and gorgeous cocktails. Of course it was all Cointreau based since the people at Remy-Cointreau were crazy enough to give me a bottle and tell me to go nuts with it. It was everywhere, in the food, sangria, cocktails and even on our clothes and table covers by the end of it! And im proud to report that the bottle was devoured of its last drop that day.
