Ho Ho Ho,

Hope you all had a Merry Merry Christmas. All the generous servings of plum cakes and wine and cheese comes to an end. Few more days and we will be in 2017..!!

This is from a shoot I did with The B Clothing. They have some really cool waist coats, dresses and clutches in quirky prints, that too in peppy colors. If you like anything from the pictures below, order them HERE.

Not much to say today because pictures speak louder than words. Hope you enjoy the styling….
 
Let me know which one is your favorite piece from this collection in the comment box below. And if you want to order you can get them HERE.
See you next year…
Love,
Kruti

December is my favorite month because it’s my birthday today… !!!  I always get WAY too excited about my birthday. The calls and messages from my friends and family, new outfits, yummy food, gifts and cakes. There is nothing in that I do not love. Also the days that involve wine and cake are the best ones. 

I started the day on a very high note. And if you have cake for breakfast, you know the day year is going to be the best one. Today’s plan involves nothing but food. And to keep up with the Christmas spirits, some good amount of red wine. I am going to put on my sexy shoes then head out. Hopefully, it’s going to be a good day. I ordered some skin care and make-up from Nykaa and I want to gift myself a bike, soon. Soon means, a few months because I need to manage my finances and apparently that’s what grown ups do.

To increase the happiness meter (yes, I have one), I am sharing my favorite look on my favorite day. These were shot during our road trip to the Rann of Kutch, that we visited a few weeks back. The trip was amazing and we came back with so many good memories and pictures.

The look was inspired by the place and it’s people. It’s my take on styling the white shirt, the Kutch-y way. I am crazy about the bohemian vibe so I incorporated it all in one. The skirt is an old favorite of mine and the clever idea to get a mirrored ‘toran’ and wear it as a belt is originally my mom’s. All the jewelry is bought over the years during my trips. Some are recently bought and some are more than a decade old.

Hope you enjoy what we created….
Love,
Kruti

Hello there,

How are you all doing? The reason my posts are less is because I am still in a holiday mood. Me and Rohitt went to Kutch for the Rann Utsav and then two of my friends got married in Baroda and then I was in Ahmedabad. The road trip was so much fun and the weddings were amazing. I mean, there is nothing like meeting old college friends, visiting same old places that we used to, eating yummy food and of course visiting our college. The best thing about having friends is that you can just pick up from where you left last time.

Now coming back to Bangalore and the post….

The weather is really chilly and it finally feels like December. I love this part of the year when it gets all festive and Christmas-y. All the cafe’s and shops are lit up and decorated. It looks so lovely. 

All of you know how much I love burgundy color , so I had to get this maxi dress from Flyrobe , a fashion renting website. You can read more about them in my earlier post HERE. The color is just perfect for the season.  And I threw on a denim jacket and some silver jewelry to add to that boho vibe to it. As much as I loved all that, I think I need to learn how to make a better hair bun. next time people, next time.

 

Love,

Kruti

 

I am a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you really won’t need a lot of make up – Demi Moore

I totally agree with her. Both our skin care range might be at extremes but, I totally agree. While a healthy and balanced diet works from the inside, we need a good skin care routine for the outer layers of our skin. Also, our skin is the largest organ so we need to take good care of it.

We all know the hair & skin care brand Banjara’s, started in 1993, now they have 36 products in 10 categories. I have been using their hair powders since 3 years and I love them. And now, I am going to review their skin care range called skin +ve which is targeted to protect, hydrate, repair the skin and help us be more comfortable under our own skin and wear it with pride.

Having a pet makes you realize the importance of a green Diwali. Though I cannot change my past, when I burst tons of crackers (not a proud moment), I am happy that I do not add pollution anymore! I love Boomer- my healthy, very handsome black Labrador, more than anything in the world and seeing him suffer every Diwali is not something I like. His sleepless nights and waking up to every cracker sound is a nightmare! He even tries to hide himself by putting his head under a table or my lap, hoping that the sound would go. Not only him but, I have seen stray dogs running around the streets looking for a safe place to hide. :-/

Can we please be more kind to these innocent furry friends and the environment and make this Diwali green ? Its about co-existence and together we CAN make a difference. Let’s light lamps and not crackers, lets spread love and not pollution! 🙂

Now coming back to the post, we did a shoot in collaboration with a luxury e-commerce app based store Zapyle. A perfect place where you can get brand new as well as pre-loved luxury pieces. I wasn’t kidding when I had mentioned in my previous posts that I LOVE Indian outfits! I love the way they give me a royal, princess-y feel. 😀 So when I was given a choice, I went for a heavy Lehenga set. Black is my favorite color and ever since Boomer came into my life, the love for that color grew deeper and deeper. The moment I saw the lehenga it almost felt like Black-magic. Rich and intricate bead-work on the lehenga, the net dupatta which looks absolutely stunning against skin color and the gorgeous slightly off-shoulder blouse makes it top on the current list of hot-trends. I did make you fall in love with this pre-loved beauty, din’t I ? 😉

If you are interested in buying this gorgeous outfit then, head over to Zapyle. Not only this, they have tons of other outfits from different designers and I am sure you will find something that will suit your need just fine.
