{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} Songs of my garden - II

"Seasons came and seasons went ... waiting in vain for that unknown scent . 
Never a glimpse , never a hint - all I hear is my cuckoo clock sing ...
Maybe the nightdress shouldn’t have wrestled the thorns ,
Maybe you thought I wouldn’t like you around ... And so I preen everyday , in my favorite cotton dress with a smile to match the Christmas roses...

Seasons came and seasons went...roses bloomed and daisies sang.
Surrounded with Bees  and dancing wasps ...
The villagers could smell the dreamiest patch .
Hot-cross buns and crotchet handkerchiefs , the vendors came to catch a glimpse...
A mix of rhubarb and coffee beans , I'm sipping on endless cups lest i don't sleep
Will i ever see you to be at peace???"

Hello Folks and i hope you are enjoying the dreamy "Songs of my garden" series . As a matter of fact i would've myself slipped into a daydream while sorting these dreamy pictures  - I'm so glad Nik and me make the best team - as much as he despises the camera , he's improving at the game! As we step into 2019, there will be more looks in this series. 

This look was shot on our longest vacation ever . This is where we stayed in a village called Greyton - which -hold your breath - claims to have wild horses roaming the streets! I was hoping to get a pic with them , but they were rare when we spent a night in here . However this guesthouse has become my favourite - one of the most beautiful places i have stayed in !

" Songs of my garden "is a poetic-vintage take on simple flowy fabrics - this series is here to un-complicate fashion. All you need is a great fabric and a color that complements your skin- and voila - you look like a princess with minimal embellishment. 

Featuring another piece from Delhi-based conscious designer brand "Juanita", this post is an ode to all things dreamy . The dress is again made of organic cotton sourced from weavers in Bihar just like in the previous post . For more details on the brand, don't forget to see the earlier post and please do share your views - they make my day <3 .="" nbsp="" span="">

Location - Lady Grace, Greyton ( South Africa),

Till next time , CIAO!

{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} Songs of my garden

Hello folks,

My heart is filled with gratitude as i pen this post . It has been wonderful receiving the honour of the 50 most influential content marketing professionals in India for 2018. Keep showering your support as always and i hope i can create exciting content for you to enjoy!

This is my new series as we end the year - Songs of my garden. Inspired by Tuscan gardens , shot in South Africa featuring my current finds- Designer , high -street and fleamarkets. This look is shot by my better half Nik and exactly why it has brought out the best in me! You rock, love <3 p="">

Featuring Delhi- based conscious designer Shubhda Priyam- her label Juanita is everything simple yet luxury. They say a designer is inspired by their surroundings . In my case, Juanita's organic cotton dress inspired the shoot and the blogpost. This dress has traveled from Delhi to Bombay and then to South Africa and i waited patiently all this while to create this story. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did shooting for it. To see her collection visit her instagram page/ Facebook page - she retails through exhibitions and through online portals like Jaypore.

From the designer's desk : 

"The label Juanita (wah-NEE-Tah) is a Godsend for lovers of minimalism. The designer clothing is comfortable yet elegant with pure colors that resonate with your heart to bring joy and confidence. The textile used is (from the weavers of Bihar – one of the oldest inhabited places in the world with a rich cultural history going back to 3000 years) environment friendly and it encourages others to instill care regarding the state of our planet.
‘Eco – friendly lifestyle is a new sustainable change in life’.
In Juanita, particular attention is paid to quality, skill, craftsmanship and care. We are empowering the person who makes these breathable fabrics that works in variety of style." 

"Songs of my garden " 

 I cannot forget the robin’s song on one chilly morning of December - I ran to the garden in my pristine night gown- all of silk , ignoring the sharp rose-bush thorns rubbing against my bare feet- if only the gardener didn’t fall sick. A few steps and I’d lost my beautiful robe in the bush & my feet bore signs of tear- dear Stranger - I saw your golden hair shining in the break of dawn , as you vanished like morning dew. I haven’t heard the robin sing the same song ever again and I wake up before sunrise wishing to re-live that scene again . I open the door and walk in my new robe hoping to see you again. The gardener takes better care of the rose bushes and I sleep with my silk shoes on so I don’t run bare feet again ..........But what about the sweet pain that remains , hoping I’ll see you again .......

Till next time, CIAO!

{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} The Fuss-Free Bride series - Part 3

Hello lovely people!

November is running away so fast, i can almost smell christmas ! That wonderful time of the year because its laden with romantic winter air and many social gatherings ,
so we can go date/spouse hunting ;)

As look 3 of the fuss-free bride series, this look is part-grand , part- flirty and a total "STAR" . Appropriate for your cocktail party/ engagement party or even the New years or Christmas party if you are the host with an added drama ! If you notice, i have used a common theme across all looks- a single tone.
Single toned outfits are simple to style and are easy hacks to looking elegant with an added bonus- they always photograph well. For special occasions , a photogenic outfit is a must !
Also, as a bride its important to let the face of the bride shine through more than the outfit. A single toned outfit brings instant focus to the face! Not only that , for bridal occasions, both outfits of the bride and groom need to be in sync. Single toned outfits make it simpler for the groom to be in sync . For example, this outfit will look great when paired with a simple black tuxedo or an ice blue suit or even off-white! Thus the groom gets more options to dress up !
Thats certainly a win-win!

The house of Karleo whips some real drool-worthy couture and this is a two-piece outfit that looked even better in person than pictures .

I have worn their skirt differently just because i love the sprawling fabric showing on the front with a side show of legs. The design is actually meant to be worn with the shorter hem on front . Nonetheless , i love how i could create variations just by turning the skirt to the side! You may add pointy gold or silver pumps in case you are looking for a more dressy look! The hair can be kept simple as the outfit is doing most of the talking . I wanted to tie my hair in a bun but my just coloured hair camouflaged with the outfit - you can see the burgundy streaks shining and i loved showing them off . Hope you loved this look as much as i did shooting in this and wishing it was my party! I didn't want to take this off!
