Wedding Spree

Finally it's December and Kolkata has cooled down for the time being. December being high on party mood also calls for a lot of wedding invitations. Such invitations make us go searching for the perfect outfit for the occasion. We happen to go haywire looking for the best outfit in various designer stores or we just boggle our minds going through various Instagram and Facebook pages and also websites of course for the outfit which grabs our heart.

It's astonishing on how few new designers sweep you off your feet like totally! I come across so many new designers on Instagram on everyday basis and it's nice to see some really unique pieces that leave a long lasting impact, wanting to get your hands on each and every piece that manages to catch your attention. When it comes to Indian attire I happen to be very very choosy. I am very specific on what I want and too much of bling does not really please me. I prefer my outfit to be elegant always. So whenever I find such pieces I am in total awe.

I came across this brand Abjini by Abhishruti Dutta on Instagram a few weeks back and I must say that I was really awed by her collection. Based in Kolkata this budding designer has an amazing creative side and is true to her style. Her designs are very new and different. The color palette, the designs and the creativity behind every piece is so unique that it's intriguing. Her contemporary and modern take on the traditional outfits is a pleasure to watch and to give it a try this wedding season. Abhishruti Dutta being a really young designer has so much in store. I chose this powder blue floral lehenga from her collection because I really couldn't get it off my head for days. The fit is amazing and true to your measurement. Abhishruti's modern twist to the Indian outfits have floored me like literally. The sequins net cape attached to the the crop top makes the piece different from the regular skirt and crop top sets or lehenga. It's like a modern take on the lehenga. I'd rather have the dupatta attached to the choli/crop top for a chic and hassle free look because honestly I suck when it comes to keeping the dupatta in place, so this outfit was a total win win for me. I kept everything else simple because the outfit stands out for itself. 

If you're worried whether or not you can get your hands on her amazing designs, guess what?! they ship nationwide!
So if you're planning for a contemporary kinda wedding outfit for your friend's or relative's wedding you've got to check out her collection like right now!!

Cape Attack

I have been feeling kind of low since the past few days because it's December already and there's no sign of winters yet here in Kolkata. It's a little chilly during mornings but the temperature sores high by afternoon. Sigh! Can't really wait to feel the chill this year.

Anyways I came across this Kolkata based quirky designer, Yamini Malani a few days back and she made me fall in love with the present weather again. Though I've been cribbing a lot for winters but it all vanished amidst the heat (guessing) when I went through her collection. I stopped all the cribbing and started loving the weather as it is at the moment. Yamini's collection happens to be very preppy and unique. The colors are bright and refreshing. She believes that quirky is what keeps us going! So, this season she came up with this awesome range of Cover-Ups which she believes breaks the monotony of original clothing. There are times when we hope there was that one piece in our closet which would change the whole outfit game and such are these pieces.

I paired a sheer cape from her recent collection with my floral midi skirt and I fell in love with the whole look. The cape is so light weight that you can hardly feel that you have a cape on. The cape enhances the whole outfit and adds that oomph!

So,go get quirked!
