Black and Plaid Love

Black and Plaid Love

Hi Everyone!

Last year, I was traveling almost every month and after some time, I got so tired of traveling that I told myself, I had to stop! But now as I have taken a good amount of rest because of my health issues and my time required in my work, I am ready to travel again.

Starting with the property review in Mussoorie this month, I am all set to start my travel videos and blog posts again and you will be seeing a lot of them coming up in the coming months. If you still do not follow me on my Instagram, do follow me there, as I will be updating all my stories and my travel experience on my handle.

I am super excited to start my traveling experience all over again and sharing with you all.

I love this summer outfit idea, where I have paired my crop plaid top with the frill waist capri pants. I went to three different events wearing the same outfit and I’m in total love with the look. I wore the same top with the same plaid pattern skirt in one of my earlier lookbook (here).

This look is very chic and smart and perfect for a day out or for your formal events. Plaid Pattern is currently in fashion and if you pair it correctly they look outstanding.

A Bling Night with the Sequins Dress

A Bling Night with the Sequins Dress

Hi Everyone!

This dress reminds me of the movie ‘Nerve’ where Emma Roberts wore a green sequins glitter dress in one of her dares. She looked pretty in the glitter dress and with her muddy sneakers in the movie. When I saw this dress on Shein, I thought this is the perfect replica of the dress she wore. I stop myself so many times from buying it, but I ended up getting it for me. This is a perfect party or a Saturday night dress for anyone who likes a Mini or a bodycon dress. I’m soon going to Goa and this will be a perfect night out dress.TPP_7005-2-1 TPP_7043-2 We choose a bar location for our shoot in particular because I wanted to create that ambiance which can do justice to the dress. The dress itself is such a statement piece that you actually do not need to wear it with anything. To keep everything simple,  I paired a simple block heel and a black clutch to go with it.TPP_6994-2-1 TPP_6996-2 The beautiful Emerald color of this dress, make me fall in love with it.  I think it is so important to have some statement pieces in your wardrobe, that when you wear them, you create your own statement of style. If you want to get this dress,  follow the link in the outfit section below.TPP_6961-2-1 TPP_7012-2Hope you have a great weekend and happy monsoon!  Thank you for reading and special thanks to Shein and Publiq Bar and kitchen for partnering on this post!

Summer Classics: Trench Jacket & Torn Denim

Summer Classics: Trench Jacket & Torn Denim

Hi Everyone!

I have been a bit slower in posting lookbooks recently and that is because we are finally launching our women fashion garment label and giving it a form of an online website. I’m super excited to launch the website soon and we are putting all our efforts and hard work on the website and doing all the required task with it. I will soon be releasing the same with all of you and I hope you like whatever we are coming up with. I will be needing all your support and love for making the website a successful venture. All your suggestions and love are welcome.

Coming back to today’s look! It is inspired by the summer essentials which we required to create an everyday look. For a casual, to a formal look, you need a structured blazer, but it is very difficult to wear blazers during summer because of the hot and humid climate. I created the whole look very summer friendly by pairing a torn denim with a tank top and on top of it to make it more structured, I paired a summer trench jacket with it. I have designed this trench jacket on my own keeping the structured look and the climate in mind. You will soon see the same trench jacket in our garment line in a different color.

IMG_4242 IMG_4204-1

Recently got this torn denim from Shein. This is not only torn from the knee but also from the ankle which is giving it a very cute and girly look. The denim feels super stretchy and true to its size. I totally love it. If you want to get this same denim then please click on the link provided at the outfit section.

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.

IMG_4028 Untitled-11 IMG_4022

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.

IMG_4101 IMG_4056 IMG_4124

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.

Untitled-1 IMG_4009 IMG_4000

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:

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.

Untitled-11

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.

Camouflage:: Oversized Shirt & Leather Leggings

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.
