{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} The Vintage Soul - II

Hello lovely people

Remember part 1 of the vintage soul? Its been a while so you can head here and see the blogpost. The second part of the Vintage Soul was shot on the same day in the same Victorian house museum . And so it prompted me to create an old school photo-story instead of just leaving you with pictures. Going a little 1920s as this house has a lot of elements from that era.


The dress is a flea market find from Sarojini nagar , Delhi and the inspiration behind this whole series. It looked so regal in the shop and it screamed vintage opulence. I knew this dress belonged in a vintage victorian setting and hence began my quest to search a museum that will allow us to shoot this series. I added the embellished headband , the heart shaped necklace, heart shaped earrings ( both Limited edition, Zara) and my maroon velour Mary janes all from Zara to bring that opulence. The gorgeous heart shaped pearl earring is from Globus , i bought a few years ago. The satin purse was gifted by Kerastase India for an event so i don't know the brand as it didn't have a tag. The tights are from my favourite Marks and Spencers.

Hope you enjoy the photo story!

{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L } A William Morris summer - III

Hey folks!

This is the final part of my William Morris Editorial and i thought it would only be fitting if you read the idea about this editorial in the first look blogpost of this editorial !

" There are so many reasons i came out with this editorial.

1) The William Morris obsession
2) My love for Dullstroom
3) Never have my editorials been so WEARABLE

Now , let me take you through the above , one by one. READ HERE. "


Undoubtedly the most loved piece of the William Morris X H&M collaboration , this dress is reigning the hashtag #WilliamMorrisxHM on Instagram . All the girls in the house  , if you agree after seeing this post , say YAY! I am really lucky to have got my hands on this dress especially when it was sold out worldwide ! Thank you H&M India . They had only size in it which is Size 8 and i usually wear a UK 10. I asked the girls on instagram if this dress ran true to size and jumped with joy when they said it runs loose ! As you can see here, even size 8 is airy but just perfect. This dress comes with a lining and has the most amazing feel! LOVE it ! I know this one is going to my summer favourite for years to come ! Its that kind of dress, which you'll never discard until it really wears away!

We shot this look at 7.30 am in the morning and the temperature was 7 degree until 8 am. I was freezing and while we walked to the dam in dullstroom , i kinda warmed a bit but not enough to sustain !
My expressions are pretty frozen for the same reason ! My eyes watered with the cold wind and my back already gave trouble . Also, i met these sweet horses and instantly included them in the shoot. Its funny their big face scares me. I always feel they can attack me if they get annoyed with my proximity . But the owner assured me they were the kindest animals ever ! But it was a challenge to get my face to rest because of the scare. It was also because i wasn't in a position to run, so i felt stuck , Haha. The horse must be thinking the same !

This whole editorial has been shot with a lot of trouble thanks to my frozen lower back - i was barely flexible after the 3 hour drive to this village. But i will remember this 2 day stay at Dullstroom fondly as i had one of my dream editorials shot here ! As always i cannot wait to hear from you . I hope you like it and let me know in the comment box as i prepare to conceptualise the next set of editorials ! I promise you they will be super artsy!
