Outfit Post – AIFWSS17 Street Style – Day 4

Hi Everyone,

I got so busy last couple of days that I didn’t get time to post my AIFW day 4 and day 5 looks. Now without any further delay, here is my day 4 look and some of my favourite designers outfits from day 4.

I wore Gautam Gupta for the day 4 of AIFW. When I saw this outfit from his collection, I immediately fell in love with it. Overall the dhoti and the crop top combination went so well with the India Modern theme of the fashion week. To give it a western twist, I added my waist coat with it which also helped me fight the chilly wind at night.

I’m a big fan of MathaPatti and I thought that this outfit can never look better without this one. I specially went to market after receiving the garment to hunt for this MathaPatti and picked this one and this is exactly the same I wanted. The Gandhi Glasses added the punk feel to the look and to tell you the truth this pairing is my personal favourite out of all the outfits I wore for the fashion week this season.

We Are Getting Married

We Are Getting Married

Hi Everyone!

The heading of this post might have made you excited and interested to read the full post because its true and we are finally getting married. If you guys follow our blog and snapchat you guys must already know about this news. I’m writing this post at 1am and today’s our official engagement date and after 2 days we will be married! We did our pre-wedding shoot a few weeks ago and here I’m sharing some of the moments of our life.

collage01 img_2908-1 saurabh-ruchika-114-2

I always believe that you should be with someone who understands you, make you feel special and be there with you in all your ups and downs. When I met Saurabh, we both were very young and started our relationship with friendship.  After a year of friendship we confessed that what we have is more than friendship and then, there was no looking back. As each day passed, we have built our relationship stronger and stronger. Through all ups and downs, he was there holding my hand and telling me that I can pass this storm. Now, after eleven years of our relationship we still feel our bonding is growing and we fall in love with each other everyday.

img_3135 vik22-1

I will be telling lies if I will say that we do not fight. Relationships are a complicated form of trust, fights, love and care. Each flight we had in the past made us stronger and a better person for each other. We always tried to change ourself to comfort the other. I can proudly say that he makes me realize how beautiful I’am and what I can achieve in life. Whenever I fall back, he sings to me “Chalang Chalang laga tu Chalang. Lagake tu chalang badalo ho savar, himmat karne valo ki hoti nai haar” and I smile back.

vik6-1 vik11-1 vik9-1 img_2978-1

He was the reason, I started blogging. I was very inclined towards fashion from the starting when he suggested that we should both start this blog. From that time onwards I was the face of the blog and he worked behind the camera. We worked really hard and made the blog where it stands right now. We both are very excited for the big day of our life and we want your love and support. I will be doing snapchat where you can catch me while we go through the ceremonies. Cannot wait to start this new chapter of my life.

UCB Fights Against Breast Cancer

UCB Fights Against Breast Cancer

Hi Everyone!

I have seen and worked with many brands in the past and very less brands do something good for the society. I believe people or brands that can do something for the society to make a change should come up and help the world to be a better place to live. We have recently got lucky to associate with an event like this which was hosted by United Colours of Benetton(UCB) to fight and spread the awareness of breast cancer.

img_8615-1

img_8633-1

We all know that cancer is one such disease which is not curable if detected at the last stage, but is manageable if we know about this in early stages. I’m pretty sure that most of us have someone or the other in their family or known one fighting with this disease. It is very important to know more about this and aware people in rural areas where people do not have much knowledge. I was so happy when I got to know that UCB is conducting an awareness program and setting up a camp for breast cancer awareness at Village Nakhrola, Manesar. UCB invited us to take part in this association and do live updates on our social handles.

img_8624-1

UCB organized their team, doctors and village representative to make this initiative. Mr. Subhash Yadav who is one of the village representatives made this activity a running success and he helped UCB to reach the people of Village Nakhrola, Manesar and set up this camp. When we talked to him, he said he has been organizing these camps for the past thirteen years and this time UCB showed initiative and made this a huge success. Starting with talking to the village Samiti and the school where this camp happened to distributing the pamphlets, Mr. Subhash Yadav has done it all and we all are very thankful to him. Around 200 women showed up for the checkup and being educated about the breast cancer.

img_8646-1

img_8653-1

There were five booths to go through the whole checkup process which started with the registration, followed by the blood test, then to the E&T checkup, special gynecologist checkup and then finally if required the X Ray which was organized in a vanity Bus. We saw all aged group women coming and participating in this association. We drove almost 60kms to participate in the UCB initiate of Breast Cancer awareness and indeed it was a pleasure to be a part of this amazing work.

img_8612-1 img_8593-1

img_8650-1

I would love to participate in more of these events and spread the word. Getting yourself checked up  once in a year is must because you all are important to your dear ones and UCB has made that happen in Village Nakhrola, Manesar and we wish more people and brands do these awareness programs and help the country grow further. Thank you so much for reading!

The New Age Girl wearing FOSSIL Q MARSHAL

Hi Everyone!

Fashion and gadgets today complement each other and there’s no denying to the fact that we are living in the right time. Like the brand fossil which is one of the few fashion brands entering the gadget world with the style hitting it right with their smart watch collection, which they like to call Fossil Q Wearables (Fossil).

img_8578-1

img_8550-1

img_8564-1

Fossil Q Marshal comes with 360 mph battery so it really lasts a day longer. Q Marshal has inbuilt speaker and microphone along with the powerful processor that is snapdragon 2100, which provides with powerful navigation throughout and apps perform faster, which is a must for any smartwatch. The display here is about 45mm (screen size) with a bright display in daylight and crisp text which reads better. The Q Marshal display also has an ambient display, which basically means that it will wake up the screen not all the way, but just so that you can look at the time, that’s why all the watch faces comes with two looks one with normal display the other one is with ambient.

img_8537-1

img_8525-1

I was very happy when I got my hands on to this watch and I immediatly wanted to do a full review on it. The overall look of the watch is kept very traditional from front to back metallic to the side dial, which does not rotate but has a push button. The watch lacks the heart rate monitor, but this is water resistant so taking shower with this smartwatch is now possible. The Q Marshal comes with magnetic charger cable only which snaps at the back of the watch, you have to buy a power plug separately, but you’ll be able to connect it to your smartphone charging dock also. The 22mm straps that hold on either side of the dial comes with genuine leather and is easy to customize. Fossil offers a wide color range of strap collection in three categories, that are – Silicon, Leather, Stainless steel and I personally love that part as you can customize it as you like. Fossil smartwatch dial comes in 4 color variants, that is – grey, silver, gold and navy.

img_8534-1

img_8531-1

Q Marshal is compatible with both Android and iOS but since it’s an android wear few things might not be available for iOS users, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting this beauty in your hands. The Fossil team has put together a rugged style design which has a solid feel, looks gorgeous comes with a brighter screen with beautiful depth. In my take, this is the best smartwatch WEARABLE of 2016 and genuine competitor to Apple watch and Samsung s3. The only small thing that bothered me and I’m just nitpicking here is that the display comes with the flat tire design which is similar to Moto 360 but hopefully the design team at Fossil will soon figure out a way to put the sensor in a way that we get a full circular display.

img_8547-1

img_8556-1

Keeping the look and design in mind, I created my look for the shoot by giving it a formal and a chic look. Pairing my nude crop top with high waist legging and waist coat which complimented my Q Marshal very well. Finishing the look with my brogues and round glasses.

I hope you like to look and our review on the Fossil Q Marshal. Thank you so much for reading.

The Fluid Fashion Trend: LIVA Bloggers Meet

The Fluid Fashion Trend: LIVA Bloggers Meet

Hi Everyone,

When you select an outfit, what do you see in that outfit? Of course the style, the fabric, the design and the make. If I say that there is one fabric brand which does all of the above and without knowing, we all are wearing their garment in our day to day life. Well, yes, I’m talking about the LIVA Fluid Fashion fabric who does it all. The garments which are available under the brands called Pantaloons, Solly, Park Avenue, W, People, 109’F, Code, etc. use LIVA fabrics to manufacture their garments.

img_8299-1

I have recently done a Lookbook using the LIVA garments showing the BohoChic Look and pairing them in two different ways to create summer and winter looks. The fabrics are so fluid and adaptable to any season and look that it actually helped me create these different looks . I love when a fabric is breathable and can be paired with different other fabrics like leather, denims, cotton, etc.

img_8245-1

As you all know that I have attended the Amazon India Fashion Week and LIVA was one of the sponsors. They also organized a cool blogger meet at the ground. Not only we got to meet our blogger friends, but also we got to meet the amazing team of LIVA who put so much effort in creating these superb fabrics. In the bloggers meet, they talked about the brand, its future goals. LIVA does not only manufacture fabrics, but it is a brand in itself. It creates future fashion trends and quality is their main focus. People are now well aware of LIVA as a brand and they are buying the garments looking at the tag of LIVA Fuild Fashion Fabric.

At the meet, we also got the opportunity to meet three lovely ladies – Isha Rajpal who is a fashion designer, Shyamlee Karla who is a popular ramp choreographer and Riddhima Kapoor (Ranbir Kapoor’s sister) who has started her own jewellery line. These ladies are amazing human beings, married with kids and doing so well in their field of expertise. They gave us tips on fashion, health, how to handle work pressure and how to be healthy. We were just having fun when the president of FDCI – Mr. Sunil Sethi walked in and we enjoyed his company. He shared his experience with LIVA and how he got his favorite shirt made out of LIVA fabric. We had super fun time with the guests knowing about their life, their associations with LIVA and what they think about the brand in person.

All the bloggers present at the LIVA event created their looks with the LIVA outfits. Here is my look from the day 3 of the Amazon India Fashion Week wearing LIVA Fluid Fashion.

The Fuild Fashion: LIVA Fabrics

The Fuild Fashion: LIVA Fabrics

Hi Everyone!

As a blogger and a working girl, I always vouch for wearing something which is comfortable and you are happy about. I have to shuffle around my office and events or blog shoots. I love carrying or wearing clothes which are breathable and which I can simply wear and transform from office to party look. Not only that, I love keeping those pieces in my wardrobe which are easily wearable from season to season and are always in fashion. If we are talking about such fluidity, fabric plays a very important role in it.

look6

I have heard about the brand called LIVA which is a fabric brand and their tag line is ‘Fluid Fashion’. Not only the tagline is interesting, but the concept behind the tagline is also interesting. If you ask me what fluid is for me, I will say which can adapt to the place where ever we put it in. Similar to this, LIVA creates beautiful and vivid styles of fabrics which are not only trend setters, but can keep you comfortable not matter which season or where you are wearing them. We have created a lookbook video with the brand garments showing three different looks and how you can pair them so that you can wear them differently everytime.

look1

look2

LIVA works with various different garments manufacturers and create amazing quality clothes. Big brands like Pantaloons, lifestyle, Shoppers stop, etc. have LIVA garments with them. I have worn LIVA fabric for quite sometime now and absolutely fell in love with it’s fluidness. I have created the video where I have showcased three different garments from LIVA and how you can pair them from summer to winter.

look3

look4

The garments I have paired in these looks are my favourite and something I would love to wear. I picked up the garments keeping the ‘Boho chic’ look in mind. The fabric of these garments are super comfortable and easy to transform. The first look that I have created is a trendy and boho look Denim dress which you can wear in any season. For the summer look I paired it with the scarf as a belt and add the cute backpack and sneakers to give it a super casual look and on the other hand, for winter, I paired it up with the leather jacket and boots to give it a tough look. For the second look, I picked up the casual side slit long dress which is again super comfortable to wear and  easy to transform. For the summer look, I paired my neck scarf and Chappals to beat the heat and for winter look, I paired a denim jacket, black sneakers and  scarf to stay away from the cold. For the third look, I choose this trendy shirt dress which is so in fashion and you can see all fashion lovers supporting this. For the summer look, I paired a clutch and same color brogues. To give the dress more structure, I added a belt and a hat for fun. For the winter look, I paired a printed sweater and a statement neckpiece to give it a fusion look.

I wear all brand garments and trust me there are some really big brands which uses very bad quality fabric and after a wash, no matter how good the design is, it started to look old and worn out. But LIVA stands out, this revolutionary fabric never grows old.

I’m sure that you will like the looks and the video. Do check LIVA website to know more about the brand and from where you can buy their garments. Thank you so much for reading.

Hi Everyone!

I’m getting ready for the Day 3 of the Amazon India Fashion Week and I wanted to post what I wore for Day 2 quickly for all of you. It gets hectic when you have to run between office and Fashion Week but it is super fun and so many things to learn.

img_8214-1

img_8138-1

I wore this Miway Maxi dress for the Day 2 look. It is a full khadi dress and it feels very light to wear. I also wore a churidar under this Maxi dress. For the Indian touch, I added the bindi and a statement boho necklace. To complete the look, I carried a transparent clutch. I feel you can carry the transparent bags or shoes not only in monsoons but any time of the year.  The whole look turns out be a fusion wear and I love it. Well, I’m leaving for the Day 3 of Amazon India Fashion Week and will soon upload the look of the day.
