A qwerky crop top one paired with shorts makes for a perfect beach look. If you are looking for something more lady-like pair one of these beauties with a structured skirts and those high stilettoes and you are good to go, that stretch of skin transform to an oh-so-elegant feature 😉

Denim Shirts – Not Just Rock N’ Roll

“Denim is one of the world’s oldest fabrics, yet it remains eternally young.” – American Fabrics

They’ve always been around and there’s no denying them a place in your wardrobe so much so that no number is ever enough and it goes for women as much it does for men. This season denim made it big on the runways, from tunics to dresses, classy or casual; there are so many varieties to chose from and experiment with. A denim shirt is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing to have in your wardrobe, just mix and match and go wild! The fact that they are trans-seasonal is another factor that makes it a must-have for everyone.

Cubel Street – Redefining Elegance in Furniture

The new Dan Brown thriller ‘Inferno’ came out a couple of months back. Although, not an ardent reader myself, I always make it a point to read through the adventures of Robert Langdon. The way Dan Brown brings together facts in history with his style of writing in a contemporary setup just blows me away! I had to read it, so I went to my nearest JustBooks outlet in Koramangala, to get me a copy of the same and engage myself for the weekend. My discovery was not just limited to the huge collection of books they have but a brand that I’m really glad I came across.

There were books stacked up in a bookshelf that looked so contemporary that being an addict of design, I was forced to look beyond what I came looking for. The designer bookshelves by Cubel Street were displayed with a collection of classic novels and I could not resist but enquire about the furniture brand followed by the gleeful moment of collecting my copy of Inferno!

The sheer smoothness and exquisiteness, with which the bookshelves were hand-crafted, made me an instant fan of the brand. “I had to get myself one of those”, I thought. With an idea that “Great Design should be available and accessible to everyone”, Cubel Street is probably one of better options if you are looking for contemporary styled furniture and is available for sale on their website here. The beauty about their product – ‘The Issac Cube’ is that it fits in my home almost everywhere, as a bookshelf in my living area, a night stand next to my bed and in times of extreme laziness serves as a seating option when the couch is just too far.

It’s not just the quality and elegance of the products that made me a fan of this rising new-age furniture brand; it’s also the sheer idea and innovation that they put into creating a product, that is an instant seller! Another product called the Heller Light is on my list of things to buy. A simplistic wall-mount that is a bookshelf, which is also a night lamp! It would be a perfect addition in my bedroom for some of my late night readings as it comes with an LED light fitting.

Cubel Street is the new kid in the block and is going to pick up pace very soon! As far as the review for Inferno is concerned, more on that is coming soon. Ah! Before I forget, I also bought a book-end to charm up my small library. This just adds up so much volume in terms of looks of my collection.

The Nine Yard Love Affair

“We have no options but to grow up.” – I realised this a few months back when I was wished more number of times on the Women’s Day rather than personally preferred Children’s Day. However this feeling was short-lived as I looked into the perks of being a ‘Lady’. One of them was, owning my first traditional Indian Saree.
Saree has made it big in international fashion too. The ‘pussycat dolls’ have been spotted in sarees by Rocky S.

“Annual Fashion Rocks concert in New York, with designer Rocky S walking the ramp along with Jessica, Ashley, Nicole, Kimberly and Melody – the Pussycat Dolls – dressed in sarees.” TOI

My love for Sarees goes long back, I have been drooling on this piece of clothing since I was a kid and saw my mother draped into one of the most beautiful attire a female form can don. The elegance and appeal makes it a must have for every women’s closet!

When I got the chance to pick one for myself, the choice was a pretty obvious Red Saree. Trust me when I say this, a red saree is some love affair many have fallen ill too, men and women. An Indian woman’s wardrobe is incomplete without it, and why shouldn’t it be, it just looks so good!

My choice was this beautiful Chiffon Saree, the fabric that gives the softest drapes you can imagine! All in red & gold and paired with a golden blouse, this artifact is definitely my coming of age moment!
