Modern Ethnic- My Style, My Way

'Fashion can be bought, but style one must possess' -  Edna Woolman Chase

I am not a fashionista; I don't keep myself abreast of the current in's & out's as far as the flavours of the season goes. But I am very much aware of my sense of styling and it is casual, true to my skin and spells comfort yet chic. Blending in with the crowd yet standing apart is ME. Not for me the loud colors or over the top cuts and hues just because it is following a trend. I believe in looking elegant and at the same time scream gorgeous :)

My wardrobe is a heady mix of casual and cool, smart and formal, bindaas and pretty.  And like everyone, there are those days when nothing in my wardrobe brings cheer to me. In-fact setting out for a dinner with friends or for an event or a party brings panic attacks hours before. This is the conversation that goes on in my head where it is a battle between the twins (the good & the evil of course).

Go for the blue one
                   naah- this makes you look hideously fat !
What about the yellow kurta ?
                   are you kidding- your belly gets a king size attention there
Then it is settled- we go for the green top
                     Is there a competition for rags to riches?

I bet you get the drift---

After waging all the mini wars, finally what wins the night is the one that my instincts say 'COOL' & A.L.I.V.E
Like I already said elegance is the key, which is why when I put together an ensemble for a festive season it has a saree in it. And why not?

The 6 yard wonder makes a woman feel like a lady. Glamorous yet dignified, subtle yet sexy. While browsing through Shoppers Stop online my eyes fell on this exquisite looking saree. Classy & ethereal it looks. Spells all the festive cheer too.It is an Ashika Georgette Jacquard Embroidered Saree . The shimmering material of the cloth and the embroidered work along with the pleasing colour adds to the oomph.

Once the saree is draped, the accessories to go with gets styled. Of course the mood and the theme is cool, chic and stylish. The Carbon Diamond Set  with earrings and pendant fused in gold and diamonds symbolizes the very me -  ethnic and uber trendy.

I love complementing my outfits with smart time pieces. And the collections from Titan -Raga are breathtakingly sophisticated. Ain't this watch from their collection a heady mix of poise and sensuality. 

Now we come to my very favourite accessory- handbags/clutches/wallets. The above saree  can be teamed with this French Connection- Kimberly Sparkle Box Clutch. Perfect for the essentials but not overtly heavy or flashy.

I am sure you would all agree when I say that the accessory that actually ups the ante is the footwear !

Shoes are a big part of your look. I think that if your outfit isn't really something special, then fun footwear is a great way to jazz it up and make your ensemble more interesting. - Christian Siriano

Which is where Haute Curry's Ladies casual Flat Sandals fits the bill. Ain't that a dainty piece ?

Smelling divine- this is one thing I am totally finicky about. Nothing over-the top yet alluring & riveting. Estee Lauder's Youth Dew Edp Sp is all that and more. It is not for nothing that it has been voted as the sexiest fragrances ever created !

When you team all of them for a festive occassion, I am sure you would be the cynosure of all eyes. Don't forget the most important posession of them all ; a curve that will sizzle & sparkle - S.M.I.L.E of course !

Stay Stylish Always !
I had utmost fun putting together this ensemble for Indiblogger's Shopper's Stop Perfect Look
