Wishlist : April 2012

  This month I've been eyeing quite a few things. I'm to haul less but I'm inching closer to an Inglot haul. Lately, I've been finding so many things I want from them. The AMC Lip Gloss is something I want to try! Before I start rambling, there's the list! 01. This dress from Zara is so perfect for spring! The colour and print are fun and yet not super bright. I love the black peter pan collar along with the tie-up. It looks really cute! 02. I've been trying out dry shampoos…Read more

Mango.com Starts Online Shopping in India

I'm so excited!! Yes, Mango is also available on ShopAtMajorBrands.com but if you've ever traversed their apparel section, you'll know that it's a tad bit difficult. I recently went to Mango.com and noticed that they started shipping to India as well! About time though. I hope Zara, MAC catch on to this too. Shipping costs Rs. 790 which is a bit steep! But shipping is free if the order totals over Rs. 6500. There are lots of options and choices which I don't find on major brands that are available on the MANGO…Read more

Beach Perfect Outfit

I know people picture shorts and tank tops with beaches but I prefer light dresses and comfy aviators. Paired with wedges, it gives you comfort as well. I decided to pair a bright strapless dress with floral wedges. Very springy and full of colour. The accessories are classic and clean. That way, the outfit isn't overkill.             1. Dress - Emerald green and electric blue dress from Forever New. 2. Navy floral espadrille's from New Look. 3. Gold frame and brown aviators from River Island. 4. Crochet and…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Reem Acra

Just one word will suffice. Glamourous. The sight of glitter, sequins and shiny things makes me happy! Reem Acra's collection starts with simple and extremely well fitted skirt suits and dresses. Combinations of leather and sequins make the dress unknowingly provocative. I absolutely loved the lace high neck top paired with sequin pants. the styling there is spot on. The combination of the two doesn't clash at all. The bronze-grey suit was my favourite. The embellishments on it make it look really rich. We then descended to a 20's esque dress which is…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Kenzo

Frankly, I'm excited to see the colour and madness that Kenzo offers every season. This collection is no different! A big trend here are skater dresses and oversize sleeves. These are repeated in every fabric thats on show. I read in the interview that this collection is inspired by interiors. By that virtue, we have carpets, wallpaper, marble, tiles and laminates! But the feminine cuts and patterns keep this collection interesting. The 4th printed dress looks very classy, as does the brown/taupe skater dress. Satin jumpsuits in bright colours ¬†are one of the…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Christian Dior

Dior's Fall collection left me a bit uninspired to be honest. The dresses were simple yet flowy and honed on how one should feel when its srping. But there was little that wowed me with the possible exception of Ajak's Navy Blue dress with the oversized bow and handwork across the neck. The outfits aimed at drawing attention to the neck with its wide twist opening and the waist with the peplums and flared skirts. The palette for the most part seemed subdued in blacks, taupes and greys. Towards the end of the…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Dries Van Noten

This collection is very sleek and visually interesting prints. The silk patterns, ¬†bright colours blocked against black and white, its a very different aesthetic this season. The silhouettes are kimono style and minimalistic with asymmetric design. I just love how bright the patterns are.   Fall 2012 RTW Dries Van Noten   Image Credit : Style.com | Entire Collection  Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Alberta Ferretti

Ferretti's collection is sublime. The silhouttes are body hugging and look like second skin and very light. I love the chiffon and sheer material with all the embroidery. The dresses have clean cuts and the floral handiwork around it. It's a nice design contrast. The gowns are so beautiful and flowy! I love the collection!

Fall 2012 RTW Jil Sander

I'm so sad to see Raf Simmons leave Jil Sander. This was such an elegant and just pretty collection. I know I say a lot that I hate ill-proportioned and oversized clothes. But this was the text book of how oversized clothing can look graceful and feminine. That big red coat is going to be sold out! The pink and beige satin dress has a 20's vibe to it. The collection looked timeless. It represents the soft and pretty side of winter. The nude/pastel dresses look very elegant. The coats and dresses paired…Read more
