Black Magic !!

This blog-post is essentially named after Black as the color is timeless and one of my personal favorite .The alternative title that I thought for the post was black swan but I think magic is more like it !!

While introspecting , why black is my favorite I clearly realized that Black is the color of confidence for me ( not that I don't prefer the color-palette ) but yes I am biased  towards it like most of you and specially so for formal occasions like my Leadership Management Training cum conference session.

Well yes I had to restrict myself to the basic and not the general dressy me but yes no complaints.

The training was successful, lot of thoughts exchanging & fun activities (during work hours)

The two evenings were followed with chattering( blabbering) and a short fun picture taking stroll in the beautiful property of Royal Plaza , CP our venue .

Coming back to the outfit here have a look ( I know it's very basic ) :

Shirt -SpringBreak
Slippers- Stilettos
Black basic skirt - Marks and Specncer

For a nippy evening you can add a blazer or a scarf to the look.

For a instant plan just add some golden chunk and you're set . No brainer and perfect for almost all occasions.

Can't believe the winters are already setting in, means setting a new wardrobe and lot more shopping with my girls. Also I am one of the specie who will go hide in quilt and get frozen even at the mention of word Cold ( no exaggeration )

Special Mention : All the pictures are taken by my Senior who was kind enough to take them after the long hectic draining day. Thanks Geetika Ma'am.

Till Next

Fahion Galore by Anupama Dayal & Nachiket -Day 3 at Wills India Fashion week !!

Being at FDCI - WIFW was a privilege with the hustling- bustling media & fashion fraternity visiting the biggest & grandest extravaganza.

It was a riot of colours on the ramp on Day 3 of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer '13 as designers Anupama Dayal and Nachiket Barve showcased their respective collections to a huge gathering of fashion experts and enthusiasts.

Anupama Dayal created Egyptian creations also adding beautiful colors and complimenting accessories. She says I have tried to go back to my roots, derive inspiration from the village weavers of Rajasthan, Gujarat and Bengal. You would find Orissa's 'ikat' craft being prominently used in my creations," she adds.

There were blues , peaches , bolero jackets ,hobo flows ,bling mang tikas , golden necklines – I just fell in love with the entire collection by her with the bohemia touch . 

Here are few picks from her enthusiastic & beautiful collection which had me absolutely head over heels for :

Nachiket ‘s luxuriant collection looked great & pleased my eyes with amazing fruity & mint colors.

Chiffons, Crepes, Georgettes, Raw silk, Khadi, Washed Dupion Silk, Cotton, Chanderi and Organza form an eclectic mix of fabrics that Nachiket succeeds achieving a union of ethnic and global in.
He says "Colours make you happy and we Indians are proud of colours that define a global Indian woman." Definitely true that is !!
