If you are a big fan of tattoos and decorative body art then here’s something that will excite your inner fashionista. A few months back i came across a really cool design trend that was popular in Singapore and some… Read more →

Oscars Oomph !

The Oscars red carpet this year was beyond awesome — we just couldn’t stop admiring the elegant evening gowns and fine-tailored dresses sewed with pearls, crystals and accentuated by sharp cuts at strategic spots. As some of the top-notch ladies in Hollywood ushered in the biggest high couture trends that will inspire us for the rest of the year, we take a quick look at who got it right at the big O’s red carpet. From Emma Stone’s unusual choice of colour to a red haute Dakota Johnson and graffiti chic Keira Knightley  — we have short-listed five looks from the 87th Academy Awards that caught our fancy in no time.

1. French actress Marion Cotillard’s Dior couture ensemble was a vision in white — the flawless finish and just-the-right amount of trail behind the dress was perfect for this classy occasion. Bonus points for the cool bum-strap !

2. Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson was surely the red-haute bombshell of the Oscars 2015. Her stunning one-shoulder jewelled gown by Saint Laurent was definitely drool-worthy. Full marks to the seductive bangs and a sleek ponytail accompanied with red lips!

3. Actress Emma Stone was a stunner on the Oscar’s red carpet as she channelled her inner diva in a beaded Elie Saab celery green ensemble. The low back, high-slit and full-sleeves were balanced beautifully in this custom-made outfit, which she accentuated with an old-world Hollywood hairdo and bright orange lips.

4. British actress Keira Knightley was my favourite dresser of the night — the pregnant Oscar nominee looked absolutely beautiful in a floral Valentino gown accentuated with super-cool graffiti. The floral crowning glory on her lustrous tresses was the prettiest spring rendition on the red carpet.

5. She is undoubtedly the red carpet darlin’ because she can rock any outfit effortlessly — actress Lupita Nyong weaved a pretty pearly dream in Calvin Klein gown and displayed oodles of grace with her red carpet choice.

Ear adornments

Ear cuffs are the haut-est jewellery this Spring/Summer. From sleek gold and silver cuffs with delicate pearl danglers to  elaborate spikes and winged versions with jhumkas and inter-twined chains — this is the best time to highlight your ears in style. The best thing about these ornaments are that you don’t really have to pierce your ear everywhere, so it’s obviously pain-free… Read more →

Modern love

Matters of heart are pretty convoluted. Easier said than done, but sometimes i wish that if only we could bubble-wrap our feelings and put them in the treasure or trash category, life would have been much easier. But, come to think of it, life could be pretty simple if we actually learn how to distinguish among the two. Well lets… Read more →

Luxe Spring 2015

Fashion is for all but luxury is for a select few. This Spring\Summer is touted to be one of the most luxurious seasons in the past decade, as one can see the jewelled tones and bright hues taking over the mainstream fashion. Internationally, all the major high-end labels like Lousi Vitton, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu and Prada have generously used… Read more →

Pula, Croatia

Travelling amidst the cotton candy clouds when you land in Pula, a quaint town in the Istrian side of Croatia, the first thing that will instantly gratify all your senses would be the fresh sea breeze in lush surroundings. For someone like me who dreams to settle down next to a beach (someday maybe), this city topped my list during… Read more →

Roman holiday

As a kid i always wondered that why do they say that Rome was not built in a day! Three days in Rome and i perfectly understood why there’s no other city in the world that would befit this saying. Much has been said and written about this ancient city that saw the rise and fall of the great Roman empire, and it has been one of the most revered metropolises in the history of mankind. And, rightfully so, as anyone who is in love with humanity will be in awe of this city that exhibits the epitome of science, art and architecture at every nook and corner.

My first trip to Rome was like a visit to the wonderland — the majestic churches, sprawling fountains, carefully preserved ruins and the modern day architecture marvels sprinkled across the city are guided by strategically sculpted angels that look after this magical city with sheer perseverance. I never thought i would say this but whenever i think about the time i spent in Rome, my mind dwells into a deep yearning to go there again and soak up every bit of the Italian capital city.

I can go on praising this city but i think there are a few key things that fascinated me the most and it shouldn’t be missed in this travelogue. If you ever go to Rome make sure you eat like there’s no tomorrow — try out the wonderful dishes that are served on the bustling road side cafes, and accompany your meal with the delicious Italian wines and Gelatos. If you are foodie, then you take a day out and do a foodwalk around the city —  just to sample all the fresh flavours that will leave you asking for more.

Apart from all the touristy places and sight-seeing stuff, do take out some time and take a stroll in the city — cover the high streets and take a round around the Colosseum — you might end up finding an orange-clad guru floating in the air or you could discover a super skilled artist creating trippy artworks with spray paints or you may spot a newly wed couple romancing on the street — trust me, a walk in the city and you will never forget your first time in Rome. I leave you with some vignettes from the city of Rome, the ones i could capture for you to share with, hope you like it!
