The 10 Colors of 2013: Pantone

Hey Guys

I'm in such a good mood. After seeing colors, flowers, food, couples in love, smiles: I'm in a better mood :)

Today, I'd like to do a colorful post on the Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2013




These are some of the Best colors which have already started trending. Let's take a look on the colors and how to imbibe them into our wardrobes.

1) Emerald



The Pantone Color of the year, 2013 is indeed a very graceful color.

2) Mykonos Blue (monoco blue)



Ditch the monotonous Blue and welcome this endearing color.

3) Linden Green (greenish yellow)



The new Khaki and the color that brings us closer to nature is one to lookout for on runways.

4) Acai (midnight violet)


This color exudes richness and luxury that are class apart! Color-block your way into Acai.

5) Samba (poppy red)


The Sizzling samba dance and this shade; synonymous, isn't it? Switch into a dramatic mode with this one!

6) Koi (nectarine)


Moving away from Tangerine we have Nectarine aka koi. Mix n match with this superior color!

7) Deep Lichen Green (Moss Green)


A dynamic color featuring a richness of cool green shade.

8) Vivacious (Deep fuchsia)


My personal favorite, this would instantly boost your mood and is always peppy to wear!

9)Carafe (yellowish coffee)


A very rich brown which is easy to wear and easier to earn the 'brownie' points. 

10) Turbulence (Shades of Grey)


Very sophisticated grey and we won't miss the dull one!

Tell me your FAVORITE COLOR now :D

Hope you enjoyed reading the post :)

Spring Summer 2013: SPLASH

Hello Everyone

Today I'd be introducing my own Ensemble made from the wonderful collection of SPLASH


My inspiration behind the Look

While the literal meaning of the word Splash maybe 'a sound which is made by falling something into water'. In the world of fashion we can associate it with two things 
SPLASH- The Brand
and Splash Of colors

I've imbibed the colors with the brand and created a look in lime and coral which would be a huge hit this Spring.
Captivating yet striking colors when paired together gives unmatched results which can certainly be carried forward by a confident lady. In modern times, all we need is a bit of glamour tossed with confidence and panache. What better to describe her than with sleeveless asymmetrical blouse, a structured blazer and blue denims. Taking the outfit up a notch is the animal instinct which everyone has~ An owl Pendant! Finish the look with a flower cuff and a classic pair of black shades!

Elegance takes a different turn as all we need is SPLASH!

Stay Stylish

Nineteen Necklace


Hello Everyone

This is my entry to my Favorite Shopping Website's Contest (India).
I especially loved this Turquoise Necklace so decided to write a quirky story around it. Hope you like it :)


It’s your first day as a fashion event manager and you want everything class apart! For your debut in this field, you chose to wear this enchanting piece of turquoise necklace. As you monitor everyone, people can’t help but notice the earthiness of silver intricacy making its way between the circular pendant and turquoise cables. The breathtaking designs in swirly pattern are doing the happy dance on the turquoise canvas of the donut shaped pendant. The six cables around your neck compliment the lemon lace dress you are wearing for the occasion. As the audience applauds at the success of the event, the director raises a toast to the fine shine he has found in you just as you swear to wear this necklace for every glamorous event.

If you are taking part in the contest as well then please do not copy the content/story/theme/idea.

Do you like the necklace? You can buy it for approx $12 or INR 599! Buy Here

Let me know how you found the story. It's my original writing :) 

Keep it Simple
