SPRING STYLE AT PROMENADE BETHESDA

As a fashion blogger I often get asked about my photoshoot locations- " how I choose my locations and what are my determinants when choosing a location?"  I will not deny that a photoshoot location choice, aside your outfit is of utmost importance, coz when a pair of shoe can make your break any look, a wrong location and backdrop can sabotage your best looks too. The choice of location and the choice of outfit go synchronously. When I'm brainstorming my outfits, I am simultaneously working on a checklist of possible locations in the back of my mind. When I am wearing a fancy, feminine look, I usually prefer a more city like backdrop, but when I am sporting a more casual look, I don't mind a woody backdrop. 

Eighty percent of the time my outfits are curated first and then comes the location, but there are occasions when I am given the choice of a location first, based on which I will have to plan my outfits. For instance I was recently invited to the Promenade Bethesda to use their newly renovated ARCADE as my photoshoot location. The minute I saw the pictures of that long bright hallway, I was transported to a dreamy romantic getaway and I knew I was wearing a long floor-grazing dress for my outfit choice. An outfit that was romantic, dreamy and uber feminine, befitting that luminescent hallway.

STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - EVERYDAY I AM RUFFLING

Can't believe it's been twelve glorious years since I moved to the United States. It has been an awesome life and learning experience home-away-from-home. I know this place so well now, I have seen it all: from Bush to Obama to Trunk government and witnessed all: from all the highs to the lows, I now call this place my second HOME. So when Washingtonian Magazine asked me to partake their " I AM NOT A TOURIST I LIVE HERE " T-shirt campaign, I had to leap at the opportunity. 

The T-shirt is an ode to their 1976 cover design that featured the same vintage tee. A handful of local bloggers styled this t-shirt and this look was my take. The campaign is still in progress and all the looks are yet to be turned in, so stay tuned for a full campaign link coming up your way soon. 

Anyways, gingham has had a major comeback this season. I had seen dresses but when I spotted this skirt in the store, I had to buy it. The length is perfect and the ruffle hem makes it so fun and flirty. In case you decide to buy it, I would suggest sizing down, the skirt is really forgiving around the waist and hips. The shooties are a new addition to my arsenal. The sporty heel trend is another trend that will be huge this season. My closet is ready for this trend, is yours ??

MONDAY MOOD- DHOTI FUSION STYLE

As much as I love my western clothing, I never miss a chance to show some love to my Indian traditional clothing as well! Honestly speaking, I don't have much of traditional clothing, the lack of occasions to wear em as often justifies my situation, but whatever I have I try to repurpose them to create different outfits. For instance my custom made Dhoti-Kurta that I wore to NYFW last September with the mirrored embellished vest, post HERE, couldn't look any chicer than when paired with that belted banarasi dupatta ( stole ) and stilettos. 

My mom gifted me that dupatta ( stole ) last year and I had been looking for ways to incorporate that in my outfit. I did wear it once on a religious occasion with a sari, but for a self proclaimed closet-repurposing-queen i.e moi, it was of paramount importance to style the stole in multitudinous ways. I knew I wanted to pair the hot pink dupatta with something white, but the belt and coordinating sandals were impromptu and I didn't seem to mind them at all. It kind of elevates the look from being traditional to edgy-traditional.......which I like........what about you?
