All obsessions in one!

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” 

Hello my lovelies, in the midst of various travel posts,giveaways and reviews, i bring to you my favorite segment- the style post !
Its raining and i chose not to step out but make my drawing room my playground! A few new clothing pieces in my wardrobe and on my table, put together in a short indoor shoot.
I have an insatiable appetite for colored bottoms & blazers ( as you must have noticed in the Italy travel posts) ! This striped blazer from Forever 21 is my latest possession and I love it every bit. I bought it on the day FOREVER 21 opened its doors to Mumbai. I was one happy person . If you end up there ,you are sure to return with your hands full! Besides the usual loves, i am introducing a new entrant in my wardrobe- A bandeau , again from FOREVER 21 .The turquoise bandeau ends 2 inches above the navel and can be worn inside sheer blouses ,kaftans or a blazer. I think the most attractive way to carry a bandeau is  pairing it with a flowy long skirt on a beach . The catch of course is toned abs. Time to get back to the regular Yogasanas!

 Notice that very French flower vase on the table?  I recently got this for my home. And that balloon, well, I still am a kid at heart :)

Rome was not built in a day!

While stands the Coliseum, Rome shall stand; / When falls the Coliseum, Rome shall fall; / And when Rome falls - the World.
 Lord Byron
Rome certainly wasn't built in a day; nor can you enjoy the marvels that dot the ancient city of Rome in a day or even a week, for that matter! Every structure echoes the Roman saga. It only pains to leave Rome with so much unseen that i wish i can make up for the loss soon! Colosseum was the second wonder of the medieval world which I saw after the Leaning tower of Pisa. I used an audio guide to help me through the tour and believe me this was the best way to relive the unbelievably cruel past!

Of the noble ruins that remain of this ampitheatre from AD 80, two thirds has been destroyed by lightening, fires, earthquakes & other unfortunate events! What we see now is something the people from AD 80 would have never imagined. You can read about the gruesome history of this amphitheater online.

The Arena had trapdoors to let animals in as a dramatic act!

Trevi Fountain, Rome
Standing 85.28 feet high and 161.3 ft wide ,it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and the most beautiful in the world.A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome. You think i tried this? Keep guessing ;)

Dress, Jacket- GLOBUS. Slip-ons- MONSOON

Monsoon party with Jean Claude Biguine Paris

“I think that the most important thing a woman can have- next to talent, of course- is her hairdresser.” 
― Joan Crawford

 I had the most wonderful monsoon I must say. A trip to Lonavala with the family( pictures coming soon) and the other weekend a Monsoon party at Jean Claude Biguine ! Monsoon party at the Parisian salon? Being the owner of the most mis-behaved skin and hair put this proposition almost like a blessing in disguise! My friend tells me I am the most well-informed hair-care product user. But then, my knowledge was limited to all the chemicals one should avoid - right from SLES, parabens, silicones ,Pthalates, Formaldehyde and the list goes on! JCB to my pleasant surprise has the most practical stylists I have ever met. He pointed to a brush and said- This is the most Monsoon Un-friendly product to use! Use only a Wide-toothed comb. Yes, the same comb that one should use to de-tangle hair. Point noted. I showed him my fine toothed comb and he almost gave me a REJECTED look. Fine toothed combs cause tension in the hair and can lead to split-ends.Tail combs can be used but only for back-combing to get that Amy Winehouse-y look !Oh- yes, don't forget to use the very light hair-spray from L'oreal - Elnette to set your hair. It didn't harm my hair at all.I sure am buying one! Another tip was that the scalp needs to be dry whenever we shampoo and step out. If the scalp is dry, we can prevent dandruff. Not a very makeup person , i decided to use the services of their make-up artist some other time. As for now I am happily dancing with joy - loved what they did to my hair and looking forward to a mani/pedi with them soon! So glad Rhea from Fuss hosted this for us bloggers! Hope to get back here soon. Its good to love oneself right!

New Pinch: My tomato-red leather bag is from Dharavi and the red leather pumps from TASHI. Another new piece is the neckpiece from the newly opened FOREVER 21 store. The striped dress is from OVS and the white bolero from Guanzhou,China :)
