Loving Anita Dongre’s Love Notes | A look at the best of her new collection

25 Apr Blouse 1 | Anita Dongre Love Notes | Lakme Fashion Week 2016

It doesn’t serve anyone for me to repeat what I’ve already said over a dozen times on the blog, so I will spare you the details of my love for the designs Anita Dongre creates. What’s new, though, is her summer wedding collection that’s written like “Love Notes” to another lucky generation of brides, grooms and wedding guests. The collection was showcased on the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2016, and her Love Notes jumped at me like a fresh spring breeze that smelled of bougainvillea and felt like mulmul.

She stuck to her traditional Rajasthani roots with her signature gota patti embroidery, but added another dimension with bougainvillea prints and resham threadwork.

There was plenty to love in the 60+ outfits that made their way down the ramp… Continue reading

Best Bridal Buys from Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015

31 Aug

Best of lakme fashion week winter festive 2015 for brides

I know, I know. There’s been a lot of “Best Of” posts lately. Technically, they are the “Best Picks”, so what else do you want me to call them?! Ugh. #bloggerwoes

After Amazon India Couture Week and BMW India Bridal Fashion Week, there was one weekend us bloggers got a chance to breathe (because AICW and BIBFW were back to back!) This blogger of yours, though, did not breathe enough that Independence Day weekend. It was spent thoroughly enjoying late nights and hectic days…with friends. Followed by a trip to Mumbai for work (post coming up next!) which then led to…illness. Yes, I’ve been sick. For a whole week. And I’m still only starting to get better, it feels. I’m exhausted, cranky, sleepy, achy all the time. Maybe I was overworked. I don’t know. I don’t want to talk about it.

I kept an eye on Lakme Fashion Week Continue reading

UPDATED on 13 July with Mumbai Reception details, a tweet from Shahid himself and more! Look for the UPDATE! sign

Sasha, aka the cutest most adorable actor in all of Bollywood, is getting married TODAY.

If you still didn’t get it, that’s Shahid Kapoor, the cutie patootie heartthrob of girls all over India. He’s getting married. TODAY. Cue: a million hearts shattering.

Yes, the day is already here. And…I…*deep breath*…can’t…*deep breath*…believe it. *faints*

Well alright, alright – I’m married already. I’m off the market. Whatever. I can still love Sasha. He could’ve been mine too, you know. Today could’ve been my wedding day! (sorry, hubby!)

So, who’s this chick he’s chosen to make his wife? Usme aisa kya hai jo mujhme…ok. We’ll not go there.

Who else thinks she looks like Amrita Rao?

Mira’s a Delhiite. School – Vasant Valley. College – LSR. Home – Chhattarpur farms. She just graduated from college (yes, she’s likely just 21 years old…) with a degree in English (Hons), and get this – she met Shahid Kapoor through some Satsang group (Radha Soami Satsang Beas) that both their families follow. Are you freakin’ kidding me? *I* could’ve met him like that! Now, if you’ll excuse me for a minute…

“Hello? Mom? What’s a Satsang?”
