Rad V-Day Things for the Guy

Yes, its gonna be valentines day and all us girls wantt pretty things, gifts, meals, time, love..the list is endless. How about you get something for your man too this time. I am usually not too big on the whole ‘gifting’ thing but when I do come across stuff, cheap or expensive, that I know he will definitely get excited about, I make it a point to pick it up for him.

{ Stylaned } – A Breath of Good Earth

Its more about the experience than the store. Its a Ryan Gosling version of your house, the house you’d want your house to look like & be. The house you’d not want to leave. EVER. Its Good Earth, the Khan Market Store, New Delhi.
From the moment you walk into it to the moment you leave all you can think of is ‘Ooh I want that’ & ‘Ooh that will be so awesome in the house’ and maybe if you are a bit vocal then you’ll actually say all that out loud and seem like a basket-case, like me.

#FiamaFabHair & { A Scarf Print Shirt }

Fiama recently held a ‘Fabulous Hair Event’ with hair expert Sapna Bhavnani, whose website you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO see for yourself! They showcased 6 unique and trendy hairstyles on some lovely ladies including designer Ranna Gill, Vidushi Mehra (wife of designer Nikhil Mehra), Ambika Anand, etc. All the hairstyles were classy, practical and complimentary to any glam occassion.

But first a quickie Outfit Post followed by a few pics from the event!
The heat seems to be slowly ebbing so I decided it wouldn’t hurt to wear a mildly heavy shirt – a slightly old pick but still very much loved due to its sheer energy and vibrance – my ‘ZARA Scarf Print Shirt’.

{ Stylaned } – Shrubs of Steel feat. Anand Bhushan

When I saw Anand Bhushan’s “Junkyard” show at The Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week AW2012 by FDCI, I knew I would definitely be doing a feature on it! With crazy creativity like that its hard to tell what must be going on in that mind of his…but he agreed! Apart from picking up a gorgeous and ‘heavy-duty’ jacket from his ‘Junkyard’ collection, I also picked up a very different, light and delicate tunic from one of his previous collections as well. It was too pretty to pass.

{ Stylaned } – White Noise feat. DRVV

It was by chance that I got to know Dhruv Kapur , at the recently concluded Delhi Couture Week, where he (very boldly might I add) and his sister wore solid white dresses from his label DRVV, his being backless. I was instantly drawn. So I went up to him, explained what I did, asked him if he was interested…and the rest is history.

:: Raging on Polkas ::

Polka Dots are such an evergreen trend. They may come and go and come back again, in all sorts of sizes, colors and quantities, but inside all of us, there will always be the child that loves polkas, any given day! For some reason I relate Polkas to vintage. Maybe because I wore them a lot in my childhood and not so much now. Which is why when I laid my eyes on this vintage Vogue cover, I had to do something about it. This is model Marie Lise Gres wearing a hat and dress by Hardy Amies,and photographed by Henry Clarke.UK Vogue,March 1965

Manish Arora – Delhi Couture Week – Day 3

Manish Arora knows how to put up a show and boy does he know it right! And since he was showing in the Capital after a gap of over three years it was literally a high octane, full power blast of a show. Energy was ripping through everyone! While I have very few words to express my sheer enthusiasm I do have a truckload of photographs from the show. It wasn’t easy trying to pick out the few that got to come up on the blog. Nevertheless, here they are.
