All in Footwear
If you have been following my blog, you know I am partial to sneakers. Needless to say I am delighted to bring to your attention that sneakers are one of the biggest trends to sport (pun intended) this season.
They were all over the couture runways and mind you, very much in keeping with the brand's ethos. Lace, feathers, embroidery, bold embellishments and pop-art; you'll see it all on flat footwear this season.
I have been wearing Rohit Bal creations since I was a teenager and I never tire of wearing his stuff... Opted for this kurta and crinkled skirt silk set for my cousin sister's mehendi function. Was quite skeptical of this colour initially and wanted to get this made in blue, however due to time constraints I am so glad I bought this outfit as it is. The wine red rendered in silk works really well in the dull Delhi winter.
Paired this outfit with a pair of juttis that I purchased from a shop outside the Golden Temple in Amritsar.
Colour experts will have their say, but if you are looking to buy one thing this season, I would highly recommend something in GOLD. For starters the colour isn't going out of style anytime soon, certainly not in India. My gold Chanel sling and YSL sandals have been my "survival kit" this festive season; I am wearing them in the picture above with a Tarun Tahiliani ensemble.
Most of my social engagmenets are out of town, so its a great plus when I can match them with most of my outfits. We all know that once you pack an anarkali, there isn't much room left for anything else. :-)
Blue has been a big menswear trend this season and since I mostly end up buying things in this happy colour, here is my look inspired from... well...err...I didn't actually put that much thought into it but still :-)
Wearing head-to-toe blue on a day of running around in Delhi. Opting for the same colour in different shades breaks the monotony and puts a fun spin on an other wise "boring" jeans, t-shirt, cardigan, sling and sneaker look.
Another way to break the same colour is by paring varied materials such as the delicate lace on the sneakers from Marc by Marc Jacobs and the exotic snake skin on the Tod's D-bag.
Special mention for my wedge snearkes here, I got them a few months ago and have been living in them. They are super comfy and tres chic. Take a closer look below...
Autumn/Winter 2013 has really been the season to celebrate the exotic skins and precious metals. I have been going ga ga over the croc knots (that are available in India) and spotted another awe-inspiring clutch from the Italian luxury brand, the Bottega Veneta Sterling Silver Knot.
Tanisha Mohan & Ruby Dhalla carried the Bottega Veneta Sterling Silver Knot on the 18th November 2013 at a cocktail dinner that was hosted by Mr. Sandeep Jajodia & Mr. Sanjay Kapoor for Mr. Marco Bizzari, President & CEO Bottega Veneta at the Jajodia house in New Delhi.
Also love the pink Manolo Blahnik shoes on Ms. Mohan. This style in particular remains my favourite shoe from Manolo Blahnik. Take a closer look at the bag below...
I've been a little all over the place last few weeks, from New York City in the U.S.A to Galle in Sri Lanka, but now am back to share loads of stories from my travels and of course the world of fashion.
Happy to be back in sunny Mumbai cause New York was freezing and super happy to slip into one of my favourite sandals from summer. Here are my studded espadrille wedges from Christian Louboutin. They are the perfect blend of cute meets edgy. Love to wear them with printed dresses and pastel shorts. Great pair to wear all day long.
