GUESS one to watch!

Today I am sharing with you all one of the most exciting projects as a stylist and fashion blogger.
Here is my contest entry for GUESS ONE TO WATCH International fashion blogger contest.
I was chosen as one of the 10 semifinalists! I then chose to create magic with my Indo-western fusion in this
My partner in crime is Surabhi, who loves doing these shoots even at 6 a.m in the morning!
I've been a nasty scheduler, you see!

Most importantly as I always say, Your views are precious!
For a project so different and something that gave me sleepless nights,I am totally looking forward to hearing your opinions! So go ahead and put on your judgement hats !
This look has been created with a tangerine tie-dye maxi ,also worn here.
A Meenakari heirloom necklace from my mom has been worn on the forehead as a maang tikka or bena.
Animal print leopard bangles are combined with a bangle watch from China (Guangzhou) and a riveted bangle from Delhi's Janpath market.
On the shoulder rests a filigree neck-piece from ebay,HK.
For any enquiries regarding the look , just drop a comment.

Meenakari neckpiece worn as Maang tika ,family Heirloom | Delicate floral neckpiece worn as shoulder-band, Ebay HK| Glass bottle neckpiece ,ONLY|  Leopard print bangles, Colaba| Filigree earrings, Tribal Zone, Read about the maxi here.
Amidst the candy-colored fun that is seen all over the place in the form of pista- green eye-shadows, lavender gloss, mint nail lacquers, lemon -yellow shorts and baby-pink stilettos, my heart still beats for the color of the year -Tangerine!
Gel this with yet another favorite of the fashion houses–the tie-dye and you get what you call a ‘head-turner’ .  This tie-dye maxi dress in tangerine oozes oodles of earthiness. With a feminine feel to it, It is the ideal day-wear for a lunch-date: Earthy and sensual.
Did you just say Animal print?
Tangerine works like a charm with earthy elements. Layer your arms with Pale leopard print bangles, moulded metal bangles and the king of them all a larger than life stud wooden bangle.
This Fiery Bohemian look can do with some bling , the Indian way. Indian brides are incomplete without a Maang-tikka , a hand-crafted hair accessory made out of precious metals like gold or silver interlaid with semiprecious stones or pearls.
The Maang Tikka exudes an enigmatic charm just enough to blind the groom before he sets his eyes on the bride! Don’t you agree? So are you ready to stun Mr. Right?

Maxi dresses : How to wear them?

The dress must not hang on the body but follow its lines.  It must accompany its wearer and when a woman smiles the dress must smile with her.  ~Madeleine Vionnet

If I told you I didn't feel every bit sexy in this long flowy maxi dress, I would be lying!
Considering the Indian climate , I wonder why we don't incorporate more of maxi dresses in our daily dressing.
Absolutely comfy and feminine they are the perfect summer companions.
Perhaps, it is the non-availability of classy maxis that leads to a slower adoption of this trend.

Give the girl her perfect maxi dress and she will rock the world!

This Maxi dress combines 3 of this season's hottest trends- Tangerine, Tie-dye and ofcourse maxi dresses!
I have added a blue jeans vest (or waist )to add a boho touch to the look.

Maxi dresses : The right length

The length of the maxi matters.
It should end just below your ankle.So petite girls can hem the maxi to get the right length and taller than average girls can add a little border for the right length in case they don't find maxis of their length.

Maxi Dresses: Which footwear to choose?

A trip to the local shop or a brunch date with the girls can do with a pair of flats. Flats make the look casual and you can easily move in them.
Maxis work best only with open toe footwear so avoid your closed toe shoes like ballerinas or pumps.
When you head to a party, pair your dress with wedge heels or peep-toe pumps.

Maxi dresses: How to avoid looking like a tent?

Well-tailored jackets ,vests, belts all add to the structure of the dress to avoid a tent-like look.In case of strappy maxis, 3/4th sleeve jackets also help to hide the flab!

Maxi dresses: How to choose Prints 

For any body type ,solid colors will always work well. So choose the color that suits you and get yourself a maxi dress in that color.Besides this:

1. Petite frames: Delicate/fine prints work well.Avoid large prints which can weigh you down.Look for
V-necks as they add length.

2.Tall frames: Avoid very large prints as you can look like a walking bedsheet. Medium prints look good .

3.Heavy frames: Absolutely avoid delicate prints.Bold prints will draw attention away from the problem areas. Darker hues & a nice jacket both slim down the look wonderfully.

The Glass bottle with a cork , has a golden key inside. Such a pretty piece from PIECES.

While you walk down the steps you need to hold up the maxi , how ladylike!

And finally I relax after a long walk down those steps and a sunny day!

I am in love with maxi dresses, are you?

Melbourne: A paradise you can call home!

It is not just beauty or grandeur that fascinates, its the harmonious existence of beauty & grandeur with your daily life that makes the difference.Just like a soulmate fits into your life, the city of Melbourne fits into life!

I have seen places where I was absolutely fascinated by the history, geography , architecture and every single bit of the place but If i was asked to live there forever, I would remember my cosy home and say no to the very thought of shifting base!

A few youtube videos, a few testimonials from people all around the world , a few travelogues here and there have led me to believe I cannot ever miss a single chance in my life to visit Melbourne with my loved ones!

There are very few cities in the world which can charm you to spend even your last breath there!
 For a place which is ranked the most livable city in the world , lets find out why…it's your time to visit Melbourne NOW

I blog about fashion , and there is absolute abundance of art and beauty in every single chapter of the book called Melbourne!
 The Streets are covered with all forms of graffiti, stencil art and a lot more!
The Melbourne Art center itself looks like a sister of the wonderful Parisian architecture Eiffel tower .I would have never known this until I read about it myself.
These artsy roads have the horse-drawn carriages, cutesy trams making there way through the clean pathways. Infact there is a tram which doesnt even require a ticket.
A romantic date on a tram for free, how amazing is that!

This is the only city where you can go on a troll across the streets,just like you are in a dream till someone in a Red t-shirt guides you if you happen to be happily lost in your own world.
Yes, these people in red t-shirts are all over the place to guide lost travellers!How thoughtful of the residents!

 For all you food fanatics you can buy the most exotic food from Queen Victoria market at prices you wouldn't have dreamt of! Kitchen makers smile wide :) Get started with your own cookery shows at home!

The Stadium the size of a city ,the numerous clock towers, the amazing cafes that sell an amazingly healthy substitute for coffee(LSD) , the various art installations across the city all make the city so unique and yet it would feel like home.Know what i mean? …it's your time to visit Melbourne NOW!

And if you still feel you can leave the city for home, the Skybus takes off for the airport every 10mins and takes you there in 20mins.
If you have a change of mind, you can always come back!
Which i bet would not happen!
So people planning there vacations in Melbourne beware! You might come back home only to take all your stuff back to Melbourne ! Say it aloud…it's your time to visit Melbourne NOW!
 Melbourne, I have a dream, to visit you with my loved ones and stay on your soil forever! Please don't open my eyes,let me live the dream!
