Hey there!


As most of you all know, I’ve been skipping my weekly blog-post updates since I was travelling and exploring newer places. But, I am back now and plan to keep updating you all with my blog-posts frequently.

If you love travelling and exploring new places, find your comfort in these cozy jumpsuits and rompers. StalkBuyLove.com has a wide range of Jumpsuits and Playsuits that are not only comfortable but look stylish on every body type.

I chose this baby pink jumpsuit with a waist tie-up that slimmed down my waist and hid all my flaws. With jumpsuits, you don’t really need to accessorize much. Pump up the look with comfortable wedges, a pair of earrings and you are set to rock the day and night!

BOHO TIME BABY!

By Shikha Ahluwalia 

StalkBuyLove gives you 5 easy secret weapons for getting through the year flaunting your Boho Chic style. Be rest assured you will leave everyone baffled by the audacious way of dressing those plain and simple tees and denims. The refreshing ‘sway with me’ style is ever welcoming. These super interesting ideas are sure to be the upgrade you need.

Luxury brands from Emilio Pucci to Chloe, BCBG to Hermes have been sporting the boho spirit since eternity and have continued to produce statement pieces that can get the vibe on the most basic looks. One is free to toughen up the look with man style separates and sturdy accessories to being free spirited with pretty florals.

1.       The Happy Hippie– Experiment with luxurious suedes, patchwork and prints to peasant blouses for the retro touch. Get your groove on with carefree yet sumptuous clothes that are easy to wear from 9am to 9pm.


2.       Fringe Benefits– Limit yourself to one statement piece per outfit. You could pair an A-line skirt with a tucked in threadbare white t-shirt.




3.       Playsuits For Life– This one piece ensemble is as utilitarian as it can get. Play off the silhouette when choosing accessories to create an overall mood. Add substantial wooden sandals and chunky neckpieces to look your youthful best.

4.       Bloom Like A Flower- No matter if it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter, a hit of romance and femininity never hurts. Make space for a little flower power, be it handmade head gears to floral slippers or boots to a skimpy short floral. You will never cease to smile and look your pretty self.

5.       Loosen it up – From culottes to wide leg pants that touch the ground. Play with prints and accentuate your curves with a tight fitted top to balance the look. Flared pants are a boon for all those short girls as they elongate the legs and give an impression of height.

So girls! At the beginning of this season, go through your wardrobe and make a list of what you are lacking. This will help you focus on what you really need when shopping. Put some serious thought into buying your next set of accessories, as a simple belt can update an old dress instantly and will cost you far less.

Ombre Loving

What does Ombre mean?
A transition of a solid color from light to dark.

Ombre has been the only trend that has made its presence felt in makeup, clothing and hair. This Ombre maxi slit top from StalkBuyLove adds the perfect whimsy to my transition between summer and winter.

I have paired my ombre maxi slit top with faux monochromatic leather bottoms from Youshine.in that I bought last year. Since, flats are the new heels, I slipped into my grungy chained footwear from Enroute.

If you are afraid of experimenting, you could pair this maxi top with your good ol' denim jeans and if you are one of those who would love to give your maxi top an ethnic twist, pair it up with a bright colored maxi skirt or palazzo's.

Also, make sure you check out StalkBuyLove.com since they have an amazing collection of trendy outfits that are not only well designed but also affordable!

Jewels are more than just accessories


“Jewels are more than accessories” or so Bluestone says and I completely agree!
The minute I watched Bluestone’s advertisement featuring Ira Dubey, I knew I had to try them out! And, I finally did! Online shopping has tremendously grown in the past one year but, it takes immense trust for a customer to spend even a petty amount while shopping online.

So, consider me as your guiding angel as I lead you through Bluestone and their gorgeous pieces of jewellery. Bluestone has recently launched the #BlueBook which is a one of a kind jewellery style guide that is bound to make you look a stunner from desk to dinner. The jewellery can not only be worn on a Festive occasion, but also on a romantic date and for a formal work meeting. You may probably think that it is rare to find such pieces that can work with all three looks. But, these rare and affordable pieces are now being brought to you by Bluestone in the comfort of your home.
I received these intricate blue stone studded peacockpendant set in my #BlueBook along with two sets of playing cards, their catalogue, some quirky and romantic notes for my beloved and a look book for my future orders.



I stuck to a COSMO Culture theme keeping everything minimal right from my outfit to my jewellery. We always choose our jewellery after donning our outfits. But, for this post, I chose my outfit after donning my jewellery! And trust me, I did not have to rummage through my wardrobe trying to find an outfit that would work with my jewellery. A basic pair of black jeans and crop top that we all have in our wardrobe and a blue jacket that complimented my pendant and earrings well.







Love,
Sarika

Twirling Romance

Today's #OOTD Post features this lovely sheer embroidered outfit by StalkBuyLove and a matching fringe bag from StalkBuyLove .

It's OCTOBER. And, it's my birthday month. I couldn't be more happier than to start my birthday month in this outfit.

The flow and structure of this dress got me twirling right before I stopped by for a lunch date.
When there's an impromptu change of plans and you need to head out, I say, slip on this dress with minimal jewelry. 
Keep the accessories to bare minimum and let the dress speak for itself. The color is elegant with the right amount of flare.
Considering that most of our parents and outsiders do give us the stares when there's a cut in our dress, I'd like to think of this outfit as my SAVIOR! 

P.S - Don't be surprised if you end up seeing me in this outfit more than once!







Love,
Sarika

Modern Jewellery for the Modern Bride


For someone like me, who has just entered her twenties, the word “marriage” does come to mind often. Sooner or later, just like any other girl, I will be planning my wedding and wishing that it would be exclusive and an exciting experience. Although, one would not expect me to be the conventional shy bride, but, my outfit and jewelry shall definitely play an important and major part in my wedding preps.

But, one question comes to mind! What will I do with my heavy bridal jewelry after the wedding? I’ve witnessed my mother and relatives who store their wedding jewelry as family heirlooms and pass it onto their future generations. But, what is the point of buying precious jewelry when you can only wear it on your wedding?

Recently, my cousin got engaged and is set to get married in December and hence, I visited Manubhai Jewellers in Borivali to get my hands on something special for myself and my family!
I walked in wearing a LBD and got the ‘confused stares.’ Well, if my jewelry can look good on a casual dress, it is bound to look amazing on ethnic wear. Plus, I was really looking for something that could be worn on casual evening wear and festivities. I somehow made my mind that finding such jewelry would be a tough task, but turns out that it wasn’t so.

When they asked me what I was exactly looking for, I gave them my exact specifications – The Occasion, Should not be too flashy, should be a rare piece and should be wearable on all sorts of occasions.

The staff at Manubhai Jewellers knows their job very well. They provided me with an array of options to choose from. I had my eyes on their Modern Fusion Collection which consists of matte gold kundan and jadau jewellery adorned with south sea pearls and other precious stones. I thought to myself “Was I in heaven? Is this even possible that these jewels have met my checklist?”
Also, my second favorite collection was their Utsavi Collection which is for the “dream bride.” One look at it and your wedding guests are bound to look at you again!

For those who do not know of Manubhai Jewellers, they are located at Borivali West and are one of the leading retailers for gold, jadau and kundan and diamond jewellery in Mumbai.
P.S – From a traditional bride to a modern bride, their jewellery meets every bride and her family’s needs. Make sure you drop by once!

Also, for those who are looking to get engaged, make sure you ask for their couple rings! I spent 15 minutes looking at the variety of their rings and thought to myself “It’s time to find someone!”

Mix It Up. Fix It Up.


My wardrobe is a mix of everything. Also, my wardrobe is in a mess due to everything.  Every time I plan to wear something, I feel like a mine digger; digging through my heaps of clothes. I am sure you too just like me end up messing up your closet trying to find that one top you want to wear to college or to work.


This outfit post was the result of my morning finds. A formal knee length dress and a blue blazer with floral cuff detailing from StalkBuyLove. Wear the dress solely or with any solid or printed blazer. Dress it up or dress it down. There are more than three ways you can wear this knee length dress. Currently, I am loving the trend of layering your accessories. The last two posts, you all see me wearing dainty layered pendants. For this post, I have layered two chokers which were originally bracelets.

Lakme Fashion Week – Trend Update with Reliance Trends


I recently visited the Lakme Fashion Week on the 30th of August which was the last day of the season. I have been visiting every season of the Lakme Fashion Week since the age of 16 considering my first internship was at the LFW where I worked as an assistant to a designer. It’s been six years and twelve seasons of fashion weeks for me. Fashion Week has become an emotion, a week of excitement and fatigue and obviously an excuse to shop.
This season, Reliance Trends invited me to come watch their show in association with designer Tarun Tahiliani. What’s more? I no longer had to search my wardrobe for clothes. Reliance gave me the opportunity to shop my outfit for the show from their store!
I visited the store a week prior to the show and stuffed my shopping bag with end number of clothes. I was so impressed with Reliance’s Winter/Fall collection since it had the right colors and fabrics for the coming season. I could not have been more happy with the choice I made.


I chose this polo neck tank top with a high waisted knee length skirt. Well, since it is the Winter/Festive season, dark solid colors like black and oxblood are a must! The minute I spotted the oxblood subtle knit printed skirt, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I love how this outfit gives me a feminine yet an edgy look!



The week passed by and I was at the Palladium Hotel (now – St.Regis Hotel) for the show. I seated with the other bloggers and was all set to see what Reliance Trends and Tarun Tahiliani had in store for us.
We’ve all seen models strutting the ramp wearing the best of clothes. This time, the models got ready on the ramp for the ramp. Yes, you read that right. A full length mirror, a stack of clothes, accessories and shoes were set at the ramp.










‘Easy Glamour’ along with Dramatic silhouettes was the theme of the show. Hues of reds, oranges and blacks with colorful tribal detailing along with innovative drapes were spotted. Fierce, Bold and Powerful are the right words that once can use to describe the collection. Also, comfort was highly emphasized with models strutting in flat footwear with relaxed hands in their pockets.
The ever-so-fabulous Chitrangada Singh was the show-stopper in an all black ensemble with gold floral detailing and fringes on her slit jacket.

#BestEver Pantene with Anushka Sharma



“I switched to the new, best ever Pantene for my best ever hair!” 
says New Pantene Brand Ambassador Anushka Sharma

The New Best Ever Pantene Is World’s First to Penetrate beyond Hair’s Surface to Work Deep at Hair’s Core

Superstar and new Pantene brand ambassador Anushka Sharma launched the new best ever Pantene range of shampoos and conditioners which penetrates to the core of the hair to give women their best ever hair, which is stronger inside and shinier outside. 
To attest this also present was and celebrity hairstylist and  Hair Expert Bianca Hartkopf. 

Mumbai, July 29, 2015: Leading shampoo brand Pantene on Wednesday brought Bollywood actress and new Pantene brand ambassador Anushka Sharma on stage to launch their new best ever formulation which restores and maintains hair health from the core. This breakthrough – which is the world’s first to work at the core for stronger, shinier hair – will give women their best ever hair. 
Flaunting her best ever tresses the actor stated how she started endorsing the brand only after she herself saw how the new shampoo & conditioner strengthened her hair from within making her hair stronger inside and shinier outside!

Talking about switching to Pantene, the actress said, “Today’s girls like me love experimenting with our hair! While we love to experiment, this often means compromising the hair’s health. That’s where the new best ever Pantene comes in. When Pantene approached me with what they claimed to be their best ever range of shampoos and conditioners I had to ensure that it was truly living up to its claim. The guys at Pantene assured me that my hair would be stronger and shinier from the first wash and that’s exactly what I saw. From the first wash I saw my hair texture improve and with every hair wash it just gets better! The Pantene shampoo and conditioner seeps into my hair, penetrating to the core and making my hair strong and healthy inside and shinier outside! I am now no longer concerned about split-ends or hair fall.”

She further adds, “Even at the end of long shoots, crazy schedules and all that styling, my hair looks great. The best ever Pantene erases the damage of 100 blow-dries, allows you to try 30 styles in just as many days, and stands up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit heat.  I’m glad to have switched to Pantene as it’s surely given me my best ever hair!”



Also present was celebrity hair stylist and Hair Expert Bianca Hartkopf who showed support adding, “Being a hair stylist I’m constantly on the lookout for products which not just give you outer shine but nourish your hair from within. I do not believe in temporary fixes and that’s what wowed me with the new best ever Pantene. Most people think conditioners aren’t important but the new best ever Pantene conditioners show you exactly how important they are! When the conditioners are used in conjunction with the shampoos your hair doesn’t just look great but your hair gets stronger and healthier from within.  Only when your hair is strong can it look shiny and then styling it in any look becomes easy and damage-free!” 

The secret behind the new best ever Pantene range is that it is equipped with the revolutionary Pro-V formula technology which restores hair strength and shine from within. Unlike other products that address only the outer 5% of the hair fiber, new Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blockers and Histidine, goes deep inside the hair shaft – to the cellular level – to work on the remaining 95% where damaging impurities exist. As the impurities build up over time, hair starts to weaken. Hair feels rough and becomes less manageable, and visibly loses its depth of colour and natural shine. Histidine is being added across Pantene’s new Pro-V formulas. When used in conjunction with Pantene’s shampoos, which feature EDDS Keratin Damage-Blocking technology, the system works in different parts of the hair shaft to prevent and repair damage on the surface and at the core of hair. Pantene pushes to innovate their formulations because Pantene knows that when your hair is strong on the inside a more beautiful you shines through.

The new best ever Pantene range is now available across all stores.









Love,
Sarika
