Fun Day Out: Orange Kimono & Blue Top

Fun Day Out: Orange Kimono & Blue Top

Hi Everyone!

Mixing and matching is so much fun especially when you are on a shopping spree and picking up your outfit for the coming season and be next season ready. I saw this beautiful Kimono at Max Fashion from their spring collection and I cannot let it go from my hand. I totally love the bright color and the print. The tag of this Kimono says ‘It’s not a nightwear, its streetwear’. Personally, I love Kimonos as they look so cool and smart as well as, you can pair it with so many things and it’s so comfortable to wear.

I paired the whole look keeping the Kimono in mind. I added the embroidered top with the woolen stockings and brown boots to give the whole look a fun twist. The whole pairing was so comfortable and edgy. Max fashion’s spring collection has lots of fun and beautiful prints in bright colors. If you are in a mood for spring and summer shopping, you should check out Max Fashion’s new collection.

Hi Everyone!

Prints are so fun and pairing them with each other is my favorite thing. Think about, if we don’t have prints and colors in our life, life will become so boring. We play with colors every day and as spring season is coming, I’m very excited to fill my wardrobe with lots of colors and fun garments which I can pair every day. Max Fashion has just launched their Spring Collection and I picked up this beautiful maxi dress and the blue jacket to pair with it. Their whole collection is so edgy and colorful that you will fall in love with.

I have picked this beautiful maxi dress looking at its flowery print which reminds me of spring and the cotton material of this dress is perfect for the season. The long jacket which I paired with the dress can be worn both sides which will give me a chance to wear it in many different ways. I have also paired my brown boots to keep me warm from the chilly winds. I totally love the whole pairing which looks very casual yet playful and fun.

Hi Everyone!

Wish you guys a very happy Republic Day! 

We all agree that dungarees also know as the jumpsuit or overall, look so pretty and girly but finding a perfect pair is a pain. I already own one but I’m not happy with its fitting. I recently saw this dungaree at Romwe.com and I thought of ordering it. To my surprise, this fitted me perfectly and the torn look gave it a modern twist. I created this look with HouseofRuda’s Glass Print T-Shirt, Charles & Keith Clutch, and white sneakers. I kept the look very minimal and girly.

I personally love dungarees because they are easy to carry and comfortable to wear. The denim material used in this garment is very good and stretchable to fit nicely. Pairing this is so easy and it looks super chic as well.

Hi Everyone!

I was so excited to show you this look and talk about the trench coat I’m wearing here. This is probably my favorite piece in my closet currently. I always have a love for trench coats but I never had a proper trench coat in my life which I can proudly flaunt. I recently got this beautiful piece from SheIn.com and I absolutely love it. I assembled this whole look around the trench coat and it came out so perfect.

Winter brings lots of happiness like the weather, the pairing options in clothes and of course Christmas. This coat came to me as a Christmas gift because I was so thrilled to wear it as soon as I ordered it. It was a treat to me! The trench coat fitted me so well and the fall of the coat was amazing. I’m a big fan of SheIn and I had a lot of garments from them but this will be my personal favorite. I’m sure you will see me wearing this beautiful piece more often now. We have also uploaded a lookbook video showing you all of my all four looks from Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer 18 with the fashion week craziness. You can check the video on our youtube channel now ( here).

Dreaming With RentACloset: Day 4 Look AIFWSS18

Dreaming With RentACloset: Day 4 Look AIFWSS18

Hi Everyone!

We always think that these fashion show designs, high-end designers, and expensive brands are not a cup of tea for everyone, which is actually true! Not everyone has a bag full of money to buy big designer outfits but we all have one favorite designer in mind whom we would love to wear someday in our life. Well to make this easy, a brand called ‘Rent A Closet’ is here.

IMG_0556IMG_0576

This amazing brand 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 the garment but just the rental amount. Easy right! Well, I wanted to wear Anamika Khanna as she is one of my favorite designer for Fashion Week since I can imagine and Rent A Closet made my dream come true. You cannot only rent a garment from Rent A Closet but, you can also, buy the same at a discounted price. Not only garments, the brand also deals in accessories such as jewelry, footwear, and bags. Under Rent A Closet, you will find an endless variety of everything starting with ethnic wear, cocktail dresses, sparkly jewelry and even “Cinderella” dresses. Majority of the collection goes to the Indian market and all the top designer’s label like Varun Bahl, Manish Arora, Manish Malhotra, Shantanu and Nikhil, Rimple and Harpreet Narula, Preeti S Kapoor, Amethyst, Anamika Khanna, Ridhima Bhasin are there with the brand from which you can select your outfit. The concept of Rent A Closet is simply, rent a dress of your choice for a few days, wear it, and then return it.

IMG_0587 IMG_0488 Col1

I was checking out their collection, when I saw this beautiful and elegant drape saree from Anamika Khanna’s collection and I immediately fall in love. The whole process of getting the saree and returning it was fairly simple. I wore this look for my Day 4 of AIFWSS18’. Everyone loves the look and I’m sure you do too. The saree itself was a statement piece, so I kept the whole look fairly simple with pink as a pop of color and paired my oxford shoe and carried a wooden clutch to support the earthy colors of this look. The saree looked classic in which I gave a twist of a modern touch with the accessories was the motto of the look. For me wearing saree was a nightmare but this beautiful piece enchanted my day 4 look of the fashion week and I can clearly say that this was a huge hit. Not only I wore my favorite designer for a fashion week but also in such minimum price. I love how Rent A Closet made this happen for me. Anamika Khanna is a huge name and wearing her was an amazing experience for me. I hope you like the look I created.

Hi Everyone!

This look was my day three look at the Amazon India Fashion Week where I paired two new labels which are owned by two of my favorite girls in my life. Life is all about doing new things and this blog post is dedicated to supporting women power.IMG_0419-2IMG_0442-2From the fashion label: Pastels owned by Alka and Chandni, I selected the dress because of its unique look. It has a shirt dress look and on the other hand, the cover-up lace detail with the English sleeves makes this dress outstanding. For my accessory, I have paired this beautiful marble clutch from Mango Pepal owned by Pooja and Latika. Both these labels are startup but they have some amazing designs. I’m linking their Instagram handles where you can see their products. I hope you like this pairing. I’m leaving you with some more pictures from this look.IMG_0456-2IMG_0445-2Untitled-12IMG_0479-2IMG_0464-2Untitled-1-2Untitled-11

White Blazer – Day 2 Look AIFWSS18

Hi Everyone!

Fashion weeks are always crazy starting from assembling the looks as what you are going to wear for all the days you are attending, collaborating with brands, clicking lookbooks and gathering all the fashion related updates. Delhi is the place where FDCI hosts Amazon India Fashion week for five days twice a year. This look was from the day two of AIFW SS’18 where I paired this beautiful white stripe blazer from my own labelHouse of Ruda with the slit dress.

Untitled-1IMG_0407 IMG_0375

I personally love this blazer as how beautifully it matches up with almost everything. You can wear this blazer with your formals as well as with your casuals too. For creating this look, I paired the black slit dress with the blazer and high ankle boots. For accessories, I paired a boxy trunk clutch, popcorn earrings, studded belt, Gold rings and a bracelet. I love pairing extraordinary when it comes to fashion week because you can give wings to your imagination during that time and no one judges you. I have also carried dual shade lipstick for this look where I have put a dark shade of brown to the upper lip and gold glitter to my lower lip.

A Fun trip to Corbett: Hotel Review – Bijrani Jungle Camp

A Fun trip to Corbett: Hotel Review – Bijrani Jungle Camp

Hi Everyone!

Nature is something which inspires me. For me, a perfect holiday will be where there are greenery and serenity and what’s best than taking a trip to a forest reserve. In North India, Jim Corbett is very famous for its beauty and wildlife.We were thinking of taking a weekend getaway vacation for really long and this time we choose to go to Jim Corbett. This was my second visit to this place and I was so excited to check out some new properties there. We planned for 2 Nights 3 days trip in which we booked two different properties to stay. The first one was Bijrani Jungle Camp (Himalayan Cove) where we stayed for the first night. While we were staying there, we also did the Corbett jungle safari at the Bijrani range. MVIMG_20171107_155910We did this trip in the second week of November. We started our journey around 4 a.m. in the morning and because of really bad smoke that day, it took us more than 9 hours to reach our hotel. We are also coming up with a travel video blog where I have vblogged and showed the awful weather where it was all smoke and we can’t even see the roads. Somehow we managed to reach the hotel and upon reaching, we realized that our jeep for jungle safari was already waiting for us. We quickly got ready and left for our jungle safari. Our jungle safari was for 3 hours. We didn’t saw any Tiger but I really love the peacefulness and the serenity of the place. We saw a lot of different other animals like peacock, six different kinds of deer, wild cock, and elephant. The jungle safari time was a blissful moment for me and I would like to do that again in some other range.00100sPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20171107151331913_COVERTalking about the Bijrani Jungle Camp (Himalayan Cove), it is situated on the bank of Kosi River just opposite to Bijrani zone of Corbett National Park. It is a Decent Hotel with a vast area which includes 17 independent cottages, restaurant, activity area, a huge lawn, and reception. It was very peaceful and quiet and at night you can also you hear a lot of animal voices. The rooms were basic with 1 bathroom attached. The room does not include any AC but they have desert coolers installed. There is room service also available in this hotel. With the room tariff, your meals are included. Breakfast does not include a very vast variety of food but you will get the basic things which you required for a breakfast like Omelette, toast, tea, coffee, jam, butter, Paratha, etc. The hotel staff is very courteous and we love the food as well. The highlight of our stay was when we saw 2 foxes roaming around the hotel at night. The stay was good and comfortable. Maker:S,Date:2017-9-26,Ver:6,Lens:Kan03,Act:Lar02,E:YUntitled-1 I will also be doing another hotel review on the 2nd hotel that we stayed from our Corbett trip. So stay tuned for that and thank you so much for reading. I hope you like the review. 

Our Wedding Journey

Our Wedding Journey

Hi Everyone!

I know this post was long pending and after we completed one year of our wedding, it is high time that I show you our wedding journey through these beautiful pictures which were taken during the time. Whenever I thought of writing this blog post, I always get nervous and tell myself ‘Maybe next time’. But, it is finally the time that I should share our beautiful bonding with you.

We started our friendship around 11 years back when we met at my brother’s engagement. We became really close friends quickly and after a year we both confessed that we like each other which is more than our friendship. Well, it might sound very casual and happy go lucky, but the reality was much more of a mixture of ups and downs. While we survived for another 10 years of our relationship through lots of thick and thin, our love and respect for each other grew more and more. Five years back we decided to open up our blog together and after all of your love and support to our blog, we have finally opened up our Fashion Label ‘House of RUDA’.

We both did hard work in this relationship which finally turned into our ‘Happily Ever After’ and running almost around a year starting with the special meeting of our parents for our wedding discussion to getting the perfect outfit and to manage a memorable day for everyone, the three days of our wedding extravaganza started.

IMG_0917-1

Our wedding started with our engagement which happened on 22nd November 2016. I always wanted to wear a ballroom gown in one of my special days. As we are Hindus and we have to wear Indian attire, wearing a wedding gown is out of the list. So, I decided to wear it on my engagement. We literally created this gown from the scratch starting with selecting the color to the embroidery and the vial. I was very nervous about this attire as how the final look will be and will everyone like it or not! I was really happy that everyone loved it and I actually got lots of compliments on the gown.

The next day was the Mehendi night. I decided to keep the look simple so that I will be comfortable enough to move and dance around. I added custom-made flower jewelry for my Mehendi look. The next day which was 24th November 2016, was the wedding day. In morning, we had puja, which in Bengali we call ‘Nanni Mukh’ in which we remember our four fathers. I wore Bengali red bordered traditional sari for the ceremony. Followed by Haldi ceremony for which I wore a georgette yellow sari with a loose braid.

After the house ceremonies, I quickly had my lunch and rushed towards the venue where my makeup artist was waiting to get started with my wedding look. My wedding lehenga was a blood red lehenga with double dupatta.

My makeup artist Alok, did a fantastic job and I was super happy with the makeup and the hairdo. I’m so blessed that I have got my second parents so awesome and loving and a little sister. Now, I have two families to take care of and I love it.

Day 1 Look AIFW & Meet and Greet Invite

Day 1 Look AIFW & Meet and Greet Invite

Hi Everyone!

I wore this outfit on the day 1 of the Amazon India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018. The T-Shirt is from Nida Mehmood’s latest sports collection which was showcased at the runway. I received this T-Shirt 2 days prior to the show and I was wondering what to pair with this which can make it stand out. I decided to create a skirt with patches all over. We ran around the whole Delhi to find out these patches and net to create the skirt. First I thought some tailor will make the skirt for me but when every tailor around my place said no because it was Diwali time and last minute, I decided to sew this on my own.

IMG_0304-1 IMG_0354-1 IMG_0341-1 IMG_0321-1 Untitled-1 IMG_0297-1 IMG_0334-1

I finished making the skirt overnight and wore it the next day to the fashion week. There is a saying ‘Hard work always pays off’! The outfit was a great hit at the fashion week and it also got featured in HT City (super happy about the feature).
