With a background in textiles, I've been moonlighting different roles, and find it extremely interesting! I find inspiration and aspiration in all things beautiful, from music to color.

Save or Splurge?

Every now and then, the question arises whether you should save or splurge on an outfit; what should you do? I ask the same question myself many times. So to help you decide, here are two similarly-styled outfits with different price points, so you can choose what catches your fancy, and more importantly, your pocket – because great style isn’t dependent on how deep your pockets are.

Bold Impression

Next time you want to make a bold impression at a semi-formal event, trade in your white shirt for an ethnic kurta. Add a traditional accent to your attire by opting for a bold block printed kurta; especially a deep rustic or earthy tone one. Hand printed, these kurtas are one of-a-kind and will give an artistic accent to your look. The deep colours and bold patterns, could be teamed up with a cotton churidar or some chinos, with some hand crafted leather sandals. Trust me, you’ll definitely be leaving a lasting impression.

Monsoon Hairdo

With the monsoons coming on, the damp and warm weather does not allow for complicated hairstyles. Limp and frizzy hair is here to stay, making it necessary for you to opt for a fuss- and frizz-free hairdo. A chic and easy way to go about this is to play with a classic ponytail or a messy bun. In fact, the ponytail can do wonders by keeping your hair well protected from the humidity. To add that extra oomph to your hair, don some funky accessories.

Avoid using styling products like mousse or hair spray, instead, use a frizz-free, leave-in conditioner right after shampooing your hair. You should also avoid the hairdryer, but if you cannot stay away from this gadget, then ensure you use a heat-protecting spray. The final tip I have for you is: eat those veggies and fruits! The antioxidants and nutrients will leave your hair lustrous and shiny.
