The Tote BAGwagon

Before you read further, girls please take a look inside your bag and count out all the totally unuseful and irrelevant items you have in there since what, over a year, more?? Eh. Guilty.

I actually thought of writing this post to highlight just how handy the Totes are when it comes to keeping our zillion,no matter how unuseful items and carry them around. 

Take a look at these leading ladies carrying an oversized bag (not implying there’s crap inside, but aren’t all of us the same?!🤗) 

Totes are multifunctional and versatile.Take them to work, shopping, luncheon, or even for an evening out just like Kareena Kapoor. Looks great on every outfit too! Casual or formal, jeans or a flowy dress, anything!!

Kareena Kapoor, Malaika Arora and Deepika Padukone carrying Chanel and Balenciaga totes on different occasions

Coming to the totes, you can obviously buy totes in all ranges, rather affordable ones from zara, forever21,hm, mango, primark and Ikea guys😂😂  But what is your take on the Balenciaga totes that cost you over $900? Take a look, I find them rather funny, certainly my grandmother had a grocery bag that looked just like the Balenciaga bag in green and blue. If only I had known of Balenciaga then, I would have happily flaunted 🙈

Let us also reminisce a recent incident when IKEA took to Twitter mocking how similar their $ 0.99 bag was with Balenciaga’s $2145 worth couture bag. Take a look at the pic and the Tweet. Damn funny.

Balenciaga tote for usd 2145
Ikea bag for 99 cents

That’s not all, check out another range from Balanciaga called the Arena Leather Bazar bags, priced exorbitantly (above $1600) and adding no style value. Who buys all this?😐

 
Have you spotted anyone carrying these two bags? Tag me there, please. 

Honestly, I have been saving for my IT bag from last few months and no its none from the bags in this post, obviously guys😂😂 Luxe bags are so expensive and all the brands have been increasing the prices every year, one might have to sell her soul to be able to buy one but wait I’ll tell you the best and the wisest way of saving for your bag. Stay tuned. 👍🏼👍🏼

Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed drafting this.

SLIDE Through Summers Like A Celeb🙅

Hi Guys,

Today, I am sharing a brilliant way to beat the heat in the most stylish way.

The Mumbai heat is literally killing us(Sure enough it applies to other parts of the country too🔥) I have nearly disowned my white sneakers and converse, I mean, who wants sweaty feet?

I have successfully transitioned to wearing the most comfortable,yet stylish shoe ever, the Slides. Trust, they look damn chic and far far better than the two strap slippers( lets keep them indoor 😣)

Wearing Slides has its own advantages like::

i No smelly feet

ii Comfortable and Stylish

iii Easy to dress up or dress down

iv Affordable

v Unisex

vi Many styles to choose from

vii Celeb approved, to list a few ☺☺

Check out how Gigi Hadid,Rihanna, Selena Gomez,Katy Perry, Rob, Kim and Khloé Kardashian wear theirs.

So, ditch you SuperStars and your espadrilles and invest in Slides. A number of options are available in the market the suit every budget and style. You can buy one for under Rs 1000 or spend as much as Rs.60k. Check out some of my favourites. Click for Brand and prices.ho

Hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know in comments below.

Choosing a gift is generally tough, read these 10 gifting ideas and thank me later 🙂

Trust, this is a specially curated gift list to make every kind of mama happy and at the same time not burn a hole in your pocket. Not that you’d mind, I mean, it’s your mom, afterall. But let’s still choose the gift wisely.

There you go:

Available at Nykaa in a wide range. I love the Avocado & Pomegranate. You can also visit your nearest Sephora Store for more.

Everything from toe rings, rings, matha patti, nose rings to full sets can be bought depending on what your mom prefers. Good news: it starts at just Rs. 390. Personal favourites are in the pics.

4.Temple Jewellery: Yes, jewellery again. You must be convinced my mom is a jewellery lover.Temple jewellery is a different league all together in the jewellery segment. It goes back to several decades and were mainly adorned by the Goddesses in temple, hence, the name. It looks stunning on both Sarees or Suits. Just one piece, like earring can change the way your mom looks as they are usually chunky. You can buy earrings for less than Rs.5000

Check out some stunning pieces in the link below or check out Tribe by Amrapali.

5.Sari: No other outfit can look better than a sari. Indian Moms love to flaunt their sari. Add one or a couple more to her wardrobe. Because, its hot, prefer a cotton or linen sari or just buy a rich silk sari for upcoming festivals or any occasion.

Check out Fabindia, Anavila M, Madhurya, etc. Hover & tap on the pic for prices.

Buy here:

6. Bags : This ones a no brainer. A woman can never have enough bags. Just buy her a wallet, a shoulder bag or even a potli bag. Whatever your budget allows you. A lot of options are available online on Amazon, Mirraw, fabindia or multi designer shopping websites like PerniasPopUpShop, Carma India, etc. You can source one for a couple 100s.  Check out the pictures below. Hover & tap for prices.

7.For the Big Sized Budget: This ones for those of you with a stretched budget. Yes,money can’t buy happiness stands true, almost always. But just sometimes, it does buy happiness. Go ahead and splurge for your Mom. Buy her some diamonds or precious stones , an IT bag from Gucci, Louis Vuitton or Chanel, a Sabyasachi or a Manish Malhotra Saree or whatever your heart desires. Here’s what I suggest. These may cost you anything above Rs. 50K to Rs. 20Lac plus. Tap on the pic, I have mentioned the prices if known to me.

8.Shoo the stress: Mother’s have infinite energies but they need a downtime too. Gift her a day off, book her a session at the nearest Spa and she’d return very happy. Most spas, I believe will run offers around Mother’s day, so you should be able to get a good deal. Call them now.

9.Customized gifting: Nothing speaks louder than a personilzed gift with the cutest messages. Show your love by personalizing an item with her picture or a picture of you and her.Just google personilzed giftying and you’d see a ton loads of websites do this. Mugs, Lamps, Bedsheet, Cushions, Cakes,you name it, anything can be customized. You can also refer to some DIYs online for cards, frames and what not.

10.Go that extra mile: Cook her favourite food or just go to her favourite restaurant. Bill is on you, of course.

Hope you liked this post. Write to me if this post helped you decide on the gift or just tell me what are your plans for Mother’s day. Doing anything overwhelming? I’d love to hear.

Happy Mother’s Day in advance to all the powerhouse mothers.

Shivangi, xx

Met Gala & All The Drama

 

 

Rihanna
Rihanna, wearing Comme Des Garcon

Staying true to this year’s theme Avant Garde, celebrating Rei Kawakubo’s brand “Comme des Garçons”, the Met Gala 2017 was nothing short of a big surprize.

For those of you who are alien to Comme des Garçons, here is all you gotta know:

Comme des Garcons (French) translates to “Like some Boys” and is a Japanese brand owned by Rei Kawakubo. COMPLEX! Now you know why Rihanna looked, how she did last night (no pun intended).

Now, let’s get straight to what was trending on the red carpet:

Offbeat hairstyles: Rita Ora, Cara Delvigne (Gone Bald), Anna Cleveland & others

Blonde: Without a doubt. Spotted on Jaden Smith, Kylie Jenner, Donatella Versace, Zoe Kravtiz and Kate Hudson, to name a few

Hair Length:  Short, Sleek, Poker straight or messy bob. Go short or Go home, was the bottom line.

Makeup: Deep Red Lips or Nude Makeup, nothing largely OTT

Brands: DVF was the most common. Also spotted H&M on multiple celebs, woah! Nicki Minaj, Ashley Graham to name some.

For us, Selena Gomez was a complete winner for bringing some freshness and that blush being hand in hand with The Weeknd . Coming to the two Indian Beauties who made it to the Met Ball this year, well, we won’t say we were a fan of either. But let’s give Priyanka Chopra a head’s up for sticking to the theme, Experimental precisely. She could have done better with the jewellery & the shoes though.

Deepika Padukone, there’s always a next time. Check out the slide show to see who else we loved and not so much.

What’s your Gingham Style

Gingham or the checkered style OOTDs are a rage currently, especially the wrap blouses with rouched sleeve. And bouye, those do look chic. Fashionsistas (yes, I wrote Fashoin”Sistas”) across the world have been spotted wearing their ginghams in a multiple ways. You can sport them too.

Tops, Pants, Skirts, Tie up sandals…you name it, zara has them all in Gingham print and they are quite affordable too. It’s a must have this season as they are light in weight and available in different colours, to fit in this heat.

Here’s a list of my favourite styles available online or at stores:

Zara to rescue:
