Indian Look with Rent A Closet

Indian Look with Rent A Closet

Hi Everyone!

I’m back with another Indian look! Many of you told me that I look better in Indian than western wear but I feel more comfortable carrying western wear and I always feel that Indian wear need more elegance and patience to wear. However, whenever I wear something in Indian wear, you all love it.

This beautiful grey lehnga is from Rent A Closet, which I totally love. Rent A Closet is an amalgamation of creative ideas and extravagant fashion choices where one can rent authentic designer wear clothes. Wearing designer wear for any occasion brings not only confidence but also happiness but not everyone can afford to wear their favorite designers but Rent A Closet has India’s biggest designer garments which you can rent for your special occasion, wear it and make your dream come true. You do not have to spend a fortune of money to wear your favorite designer garment but just the rental amount. There’s a seemingly endless variety of everything including ethnic wear, cocktail dresses, sparkly jewelry and even “Cinderella” dresses. Majority of the collection belongs to an ethnic category and all the top designers’ like Varun Bahl, Manish Arora, Shantanu and Nikhil, Ritu Kumar, Rimple and Harpreet Narula, Preeti S Kapoor, Amethyst, Anamika Khanna, Ridhima Bhasin are going to be seen mainstream in the selection.

The lehnga I’m wearing is from the designer house of RUHMAHSA and the actual price of this piece is Rs. 40000 but you can rent this from Rent A Closet for 3 days for Rs. 4000. How convenient is that! This beautiful piece is pretty simple yet it is giving a statement look. The renting process of Rent A Closet is fairly simple and easy. They will take your order, fit the garment in your size and get it delivered to your doorstep and after your rental period, all you have to return the piece.

The last time I wore Rent A Closet was for AIFW (Amazon India Fashion Week) and that was a beautiful pre-draped saree from Anamika Khanna. I truly love how Rent A Closet making designer wear available for everyone.

Thank you so much for reading. I hope you like the look.

Happy Thursday Guys!

Being a fashion blogger, I need have an artistic way of writing a blog, to create content, styling a garment and for that, I take a lot of inspiration from the people around me, from the places I go and from other bloggers too. I have been thinking about this look for a really long time and I finally created this look after I got my hands on to this beautiful lace shoe from Truffle Collection. For this look, I kept the neutral color palette in mind and gave a lot of emphasis on white and grey color collaboration.

Currently, on HouseofRuda we are selling this beautiful long blazer and when I created this piece, I was really happy to see the structure and the overall look of the blazer. Wearing blazer with this lace high ankle shoe, kind of completed the whole look for me. To maintain the minimalistic look of the pairing, I added a plain short and a black peplum top with my grey boxy bag. Just for a little blink to the whole outfit, I added the stone necklace. I believe minimalistic and comfort fashion is the new trend. From all the recent looks which I have created, this is one of my favorite look which actually came out super trendy.

We have recently collaborated with Truffle collection and produced a video where we showed how to wear thigh high boots in four different ways. Truffle collection has an amazing range of shoes available on their website from where you can shop. Here is the video where you can see all the four looks that I created:

I hope you like this look and our video. Thank you so much for reading this post.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!IMG_3780 IMG_3806 IMG_3836-2 IMG_3826 IMG_3798 IMG_3754

Last time I posted the lookbook with the crop top and skirt duo and you guys loved it absolutely so I thought why not sharing this amazing statement red blazer look with you guys. This blazer is also from Shein and I recently got my hands on it after looking at another blogger friend of mine who also owns this blazer. I totally loved it on her and she told me that this is from Shein. I have few statement pieces in my wardrobe and this will be another addition to the collection. I really like the popping red color of this blazer and I think if we make many more pairings look good.

I have been crushing over with the look of an oversized blazer wearing with the bracelet and a simple bottom. So for this look, keeping the popping color of the blazer in mind I kept everything else neutral. I added my high waist leggings with a basic black lace bralette with fanny pack clutch and same color shoes.

BMW Deutsche Motoren: India’s Largest BMW Dealership

BMW Deutsche Motoren: India’s Largest BMW Dealership

Hi Everyone!                                                         

If you love luxury, what more speaks than a luxurious car? When features start to fade away and finesse is your priority that is when you are looking for a luxurious car for yourself. If you ask my preferable brand for a luxurious car, it will always be BMW. I have immense love for the brand and their beautiful cars.

We all know that BMW is one of the brands which sells the most awesome and luxurious cars in the world. BMW Group is the only automobile and motorcycle manufacturer worldwide to focus all its brands on the premium segment. Recently, I was given this incredible opportunity to be a part of their customer and bloggers meet event #BMWInsideOut at the BMW’s largest dealerships in the national capital region: BMW Deutsche Motoren. When I got the invitation to visit their showroom and their service center facilities, I was thrilled to grab the opportunity.

BMW Deutsche Motoren has 4 facilities across NCR: Mathura Road, Faridabad, Noida, and Motinagar. I visited the Noida facility which is spread over 90611 square feet. BMW Deutsche Motoren, Noida facility is an ultra-modern showroom and the only BMW facility in Noida. (3S – service, sales, spare parts: Full-service facility)

When we reached the facility we have been welcomed by the after sale service head of BMW Deutsche Motoren, Noida, followed by the tour of the facility. Through the tour, we got to know how BMW Deutsche Motoren is taking care of their customers and giving their customers the world-class service. They demonstrated us their paint process followed by the body straightening process of the cars which are accidentals.

BMW Deutsche Motoren service team also explained us the difference between the genuine and non-genuine parts and their benefit and comparison. As we walked through the service bay, we realized that BMW Deutsche Motoren’s main strength is their service department which services over 130 cars per day and keeping their customers on fast lane service. (Experience its massive Service Centre here: https://www.bmw-deutschemotoren.in/service-area)They also showed various different tools and explain their uses and importance. It was such an amazing opportunity to know the oldest dealer of the biggest luxurious car manufacturers and how they are working to satisfy their customers and taking care of their cars.

After we came up the event turned with excitement when the dramatic entry of the BMW M4 happened. Its Frozen Black finish, rear diffuser carbon, steering wheel with race display, amazing sound of its engine and deadly looks, took my Breath Away. This BMW M4 what we saw at the BMW Deutsche Motoren facility was also displayed at the Auto Expo 2018. I was excited like a little baby to click my pictures with this amazing looking beast.

BMW Deutsche Motoren service team takes great care of their customer’s car while servicing. They explained us their initial consultation and transparent RATC diagnosis process along with SCATV (Service Consultation at the Reception) – a thorough vehicle check for a quick and accurate assessment of BMW cars. They also provided insights on CBS + Key reader which a cutting edge intelligent maintenance system that monitors BMW components in stores information in the car remote key, indicating when the car needs service. It provides precise information on the components that need repair this helping to prevent untimely and expensive repairs due to delay in service.

I was so happy to be a part of this journey with lots of other BMW users at the BMW Deutsche Motoren, Noida facility. 
Thank you BMW Deutsche Motoren for giving us this amazing opportunity to know BMW as a brand and your team better.

A Great Day: Co-Ord Dress & Pink Shoes

A Great Day: Co-Ord Dress & Pink Shoes

Hi Everyone!

Sometimes when you want something in life and it seems so hard to achieve, you should try to get it through a new and different way with a fresh approach. We were facing issues with our lookbook shoots as we cannot do it during daytime as heat waves are following in Delhi and it’s so hard to step out. So we have decided to do our shoots early morning till the summers are over.

Today we woke up at 5 am, got ready for the shoot and by 7 am we wrapped up this lookbook. I was so happy and impressed with the pictures which came out and it’s totally worth getting up so early. However, I went back to sleep for another 2 hours after coming back home (LOL!).

IMG_3684 IMG_3693 IMG_3671

Here’s something about the outfit I’m wearing today! Well, I got this co-ord dress (crop top and pencil skirt) from Shein recently and absolutely love it. I wore it three times from the day it arrived and I knew I have to do a look shoot with it. I do not understand how Shein is managing to deliver such pieces at such great price (Rs. 675 only). Trust me, the quality of the product is amazing and it looks so chic too. They have the same piece in white as well! I wanted to create a formal and smart look with the dress while I want to keep the whole look edgy, thus, I paired my bright pink pumps with my Charles and Keith clutch. I love the fact that how the location also helped us to pop out the bright colour of the shoes in the pictures.

IMG_3725 IMG_3747 IMG_3733 IMG_3676 IMG_3708

It was indeed a great day and I truly love how beautiful the early morning shoot came out. Thank you so much for reading it. I hope you love the look.

A day well spent at Orient Electric’s Fans Display Zone

A day well spent at Orient Electric’s Fans Display Zone

Hi Everyone!

We all have one dream home in mind for which we work hard and dream to create it one day. Different people have different tastes and choices to create their own dream home.  Some like lavish and posh homes and some wants to have a cute and small little place. No matter what your choice is, we all want homes which can give us comfort and should have our own touch.

In a home, we all give its interiors a huge priority as how the walls should be or which furniture to pick, etc. But have you ever thought that with all of these, which fans need to be installed and if they will go with the interiors or not? We generally do not give much importance to which fans to select and install in our homes. I was one of them to think like that before I attended the recent Bloggers meet hosted by Orient Electric, the biggest manufacturer of fans in India.

I visited their Faridabad factory where they have shown us their splendid fans’ collection and how these fans are being made. I must say that after visiting their plant, I was really thrilled and happy to see how the whole process works and what it means to be the largest exporter of fans. Orient Electrics has over 60% market share in export of fans and a presence in over 35 countries.  Established in 1940, the company has created a strong customer base and great customer service centers. Orient Fans have manufacturing units in Faridabad, Kolkata, and Guwahati. Their units are capable of manufacturing & ability to produce multiple variants of fans.

Orient Electric today has the widest range of fans in its portfolio including ceiling fans, table fans, wall fans, pedestal fans, exhaust fans and multi-utility fans to suit varied evolving needs, aesthetic preferences and usage environments. They are recognized for developing path-breaking technologies in fans – PSPO, BLDC & Aero Series. The products are made keeping Technology, Silence, Quality, Aesthetics, Reliability and Easy to Clean in mind. As they have a huge variety of products, their pricing has also ranged from low to high keeping in mind that everyone should afford it.

I personally love their Aero Series. Orient Aero series has upgraded designs, premium features, and super smart technologies. These fans are “very silent and very powerful”. Orient Electric launched Aerostorm fan in January 2018 which is inspired from aerofoil design of Aircraft wings and is reinforced with winglet technology which further helps in sound reduction and giving an astounding air delivery of 300 CMM. In February 2018, they launched yet another striking variant in our Aero Series range – Aerocool, with a unique design. While I was attending the bloggers meet, I end up winning myself an Aerostorm (lucky me!).

Orient fans have been consistently awarded ‘Star Performer’ for many years by the Engineering Export Promotion Council (EEPC) and rated as ‘Star Export House’ by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. You should definitely have your next fan from Orient Electric. I completely trust Orient Electric for my future fans and I cannot wait to get my own Aero Storm and install it in my room.

Hi Everyone!

It seems like we have not done a lookbook post for really long. So, it’s time to post one!

I always had a soft corner for camo prints. I use to have a T-shirt and a dress in this print and now own an oversized shirt. Here’s showing you one way of wearing an oversized shirt. I’m planning to do a couple of more lookbooks with the same shirt by wearing it differently. Let me know if you guys want to see a video on this?IMG_9964IMG_9957

I have kept this look very simple by wearing the long shirt in the simple button up way. I have added a black belt to give it a clinch waist look because I’m wearing an oversized shirt and I don’t want it to look super loose. To make the look more comfortable and wearable, I have paired my black leather leggings and white sneakers. For accessories, I have added my tan Michael Kors bag, Daniel Willington watch and bracelet and reflective aviators.

I have tried to add all the earthy tones in this look to make this look camouflage with the background. This was such an easy and comfortable look that you can wear this for all your casual outings. I love casual wear, especially which gives comfort and I always encourage you guys to always wear clothing which comforts you. The good thing about this eras fashion is comfortable clothing.IMG_9962 IMG_9998 IMG_9975 IMG_9973

Thank you so much for reading it. I hope you like the look.

Levet:: Leather Skirt & Velvet Top

Hi Everyone!

This is an all-black outfit with so much depth because of the different material which has been used in this outfit. The top has a velvet material and the skirt has a leather material. I feel that if you are wearing the same color outfit overall, you should differentiate the top and the bottom with different shades of the same color or play with the material to create the necessary depth in one pairing. 

Here, I’m wearing this beautiful velvet top from Shein. I totally love the plunging neckline and the shoulder detail of this top. The beaded metallic detail with shoulder pads definitely making this top a statement piece. I paired this beautiful bodysuit with my A-Line midi skirt. I’m totally loving the whole pairing and how beautifully both the pieces complemented each other. 

To finish the look, I paired my purple heels and some nude basic lipstick with it. This look is great for night party or dressy meetups. I simply love how this look came out.

Fight Postpartum Depression with Prega News

Fight Postpartum Depression with Prega News

Hi Everyone!

An independent woman looks smart and sharp which we all try to show and portray to the world. It is actually tough to handle home and our professional life at the same time. The world takes a woman responsibility as a part of her duties but to balance everything, it sometimes takes a toll on us especially if you are a new mom and you have a kid back at home to take care of. It is very easy to fall into depression and stress.

Untitled2

It is likely to feel that you are lacking in your professional carrier because you have an added responsibility back at home which is now your priority. When you are a new mom it is overwhelming to balance out things and woman in that stage often goes through Postpartum Depression (PPD). Postpartum Depression (PPD) is a condition that is associated with childbirth. Studies suggest that postpartum depression can start anytime during the first year of having a baby.

Prega News who is the leader brand available in the market has come up and extended a hand of support to all mothers suffering from postpartum depression. There are many women who do not even know that they are suffering from PPD. Prega news (https://www.yoursecondhome.co.in) has created a website where you can know if you are suffering from PPD and how can we get help. They also created this beautiful video to make you understand how difficult it is to deal with Postpartum Depression (PPD).

REIMAGINE INDIA with VISA Cards #reimagineindia

REIMAGINE INDIA with VISA Cards #reimagineindia

Hi Everyone!

The hot topic currently is how we can better our country and what the ruling party is doing to create a perfect country. We need to understand that to create a perfect nation, every one of us should take responsibility. We are young and can change the way we have been living. We should all do our bit to help come one step closer to create a great India. All we need to do is think differently and take that small step.

Our family is a Hindu religious family. Whenever we have any religious program at our home, we make sure that we do not use loudspeaker so that no one gets disturbed. Noise pollution is a very normal thing which we do rather than think about others. There may be kids who have their exams and want to study, there might be old age or newly born babies who cannot take noise pollution. We should always keep in mind that there are other people who might get disturbed because of us.

IMG_0668

Being a blogger, I have to travel a lot. Sometimes I travel through public transport, where I have to take the metro train for my commute. I have seen a lot of times in a jam-packed metro station that a train comes and people get crazy to enter the train without letting the other people get out of the coach. Because of this many people get hurt. We are educated people and we all know the rules of Metro. You should stand before the yellow line and where the footsteps are marked. I always follow the rule no matter if I have to leave one or two trains but hurting someone just to reach somewhere 5 minutes early is inhumane.

sgr

We are the generation of new thinking and we can change and help people Reimagine India in a new and fresh way. Let’s get out of our comfort zone and take a step ahead in rediscovering India. We can start from really small things like transforming public space into something new and interesting or let’s open the streets for everyone from kids to old age people. Why do we need gym or fitness centre when we can get fit anywhere or let’s change the way we celebrate our festivals and make it more eco-friendly and joyful. VISA has taken this initiative and is asking us to think with the help of this video and to understand how beautifully you can change for a better future.

Think about how we can change so much around us if we all consider these small things and change our lifestyle a little to make a better nation and be a better human being. I’m giving my share to Reimagine India. I request everyone to come and join this cause to Reimagine India and share your story with us.
