Latest additions to my collection

I got a few more accessories from my favorite Hill Road shop (here):

  1. The first one is a pair of green and gold earrings. I love the combination of the two colors, it always looks rich and is perfect for the winter. I also like the curved gold connecting thing in between the two stones. 
  2. The second is a pair of really pale pink earrings. They are neutral in color and style so can be paired with anything.

Put a ring on it!

I am a big fan of cocktails and cocktail rings and I believe the quirkier the better (applies to both the drink and the ring). You can wear them to add bling to the most boring and simple outfits and in case of rings its always good to be a little too much. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. The first one is in the popular owl motif which can be seen everywhere these days. I got it from Linking Road in Mumbai and I like it because of the turquoise stone in the middle 
  2. This is not exactly a cocktail ring but the beautiful branch in gold makes it different. I got this from Accessorize in Singapore
  3. I love the color of this ring and inspite of being big it looks pretty delicate because of the pink. i got this one from Hill Road from the shop mentioned in this post
  4. This was my first ring which i got from Aldo in Mumbai a couple of years back. I love the green eyes with the white shell
  5. This one is my favorite. Its my mom's old ring which she got from Kashmir 35 years back. I love the deep purple semi precious stones and the best part is that it gives a luxe touch to any outfit

Shopping Destinations: Hill Road

I discovered this tiny shop selling gorgeous accessories on Hill Road in Bandra, Mumbai a couple of years ago. Its the last shop in the street right opposite Elco. The best part about this shop is that they have the surplus stuff from Accessorize and Aldo and its pretty cheap (necklaces are around 350-450 and earrings are around 150-250) so you can buy lots of stuff.

  1. A very much on trend collar. I like how the shape is diffferent from what you usually see in collars and also the rectangular black stone in the middle
  2. I love this necklace with black stones. I got a very Victorian vibe from it and was reminded of Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. I still can't decide what to wear with it
  3. An orange and gold necklace. I love the alternating gold and orange color and can't wait for an occasion to wear it

Shopping Destinations: Linking Road

One of my favorite budget places to shop in Mumbai is linking road. The clothes are passable but I love the crowded little stalls selling the shoes. 

I like shoes with a traditional twist to it especially the kolhapuris in cool colors. They go perfect with just a white shirt and a pair of blue jeans.I picked up two pairs of shoes this time. A pair of ballerina flats with a traditional print covered with clear sequins giving it a faint shimmer.

I also got a pair of blue kolhapuris with neon embroidery.

Cuff it!-2

A cuff can add glamour to any simple outfit and also reflect your personality. If you are a biker chic girl then you can wear one in leather with studs or something metallic and if you are a girly girl you can wear one with lace or beads and charms.
Here is my favorite cuff in oxidized silver from Forever 21:

Cuff it!

Picked it up at Edinburgh. Love it. Especially love the way it fits and looks on my arm.
Wear it when I'm too lazy to pick out accessories. Seems to go with any color and dress. Adds just the necessary amount of glam.

You know you want to cuff yourselves.

Gossip Girl Fashion

Gossip girl has been one of the most fashionable shows on TV for the past 5 years. I watch the show only because every episode features fabulous pieces from all the big fashion houses. The Paris episode in the 3rd season was one of my all time favorites. I loved the gold Emilio Pucci blazer with the vibrant blue Tibi cropped pants worn by Blake Lively in that episode (you can see it in the video below)
Here is an interesting video of Eric Daman, the stylist for Gossip Girl, talking about the fashion in that episode. Enjoy!!!


Yellow Fever

I have had a sudden affliction of yellow fever. No, not the dangerous medical kind. I am talking about the fun fashionable kind. I have fallen completely in love with all shades of yellow. I really like having it on my clothes. The bright color can brighten up even the gloomiest of days. I made a recent purchase of mustard jeans as you can so clearly tell by the smug grin on my face.
I like pairing my mustard jeans with my electric blue sky high heels and an electric blue top. For accessories, I like something heavy in gold like the knotted neckpiece I am wearing, a simple black and gold chain purse and my favorite watch. I'm wearing my favorite coral color on my lips and my hair is left to be its usual wild curly self.

You know you want the fever.
