Sneaker Fever!👟👟

This year sneakers have been a big hit. From skirts to denims, from dresses to overalls and maxi dresses, sneakers can be paired with anything and everything. So when everyone is following the trend, why would I have stayed behind 😁

Ever since I bought these adidas beauts, we’ve been inseparable. Though I don’t prefer buying white shoes but these were love at first sight. 🙈 Hehe. So when my cousins and I made a back to back movie plan for Saturday and Sunday , I knew I had to take these babies for an outing. Needless to say they didn’t disappoint me.❤

I combined a lot of trends like tie and dye, fringe, nauticals, batman, bucket bag in both the looks yet kept my comfort on top priority. These adidas superstars complimented my outfits to the T! 😍

Painting the town RED!!

Hehe no no I’ve not joined the painting business. 😛 This blog is dedicated to my obsession for the color RED!

Most of you must be knowing by now that Red is my fav color. I just keep getting dragged in its direction. My mother tells me that my first dress & my first pair of bellies were red & that might have led to the obsession! 😀 I don’t know how much of that is true but I love painting the town RED! ❤

Honestly I don’t intend to shop for red but always end up with something red in my wardrobe!  😉

Be it a skater dress or a maxi, a shirt or a trouser, I’ve a red in all of them. My coffee mug, pendrive & my water bottle are red too! Most of my friends think I’m crazy but I can’t help it, I just looooooove the color. When I wear red I just feel too happy & confident, sounds lame, doesn’t it? 🙂

These are a few reds that I own.

So this is the red dress I owned I guess. Even then I knew what a camera is & what it does. Dad would keep clicking my pics all day long & now everyone blames him for that! 😛 Before this pic was taken, I was in tears but when I saw the camera, well you can make that our from the pic! 😀

This red lehenga is probably about 7-8kgs heavy but I just adore the intricate work on it. It’s a Rajasthani silk lehenga with heavy embroidery. I’m an amateur dancer so whenever I’ve the opportunity to pull off a folk song, this is my obvious choice. BTW whenever I wear this, I always win the competitions I participate in! 🙂

This saree was a gift from my Gujarati Aunt. The blouse has immaculate detailing which makes it stand out. My friends love this saree so much that they want me to get one for each of them. 😉

Believe it or not but I bought this pencil red dress for just INR 500 from the very famous Sarojini Nagar! 😀 When I told this to my girl gang, their jaws dropped open! Hehe. It is one of my fav red pieces for sure!

I don’t remember where I bought this jacket from but I couldn’t stop looking at it during winters. It’s a very chic, stylish yet uber comfortable. I’ve worn it with LBDs & denims & it goes perfectly with everything. Take a look at the color of the shades! 😛

I call this my travelling tee. 😛 It has been with me during all my vacations cause it’s so amazing!

This is my fav red outfit at the moment now. Those of you who follow my blog would have read about it for others you can all about it here. It combines the two things that are in vogue: plaids & maxis. I was quite lucky to have grabbed the piece in my size.

Weddings always call for ethnic wear. I got this red anarkali stiched from my mom’s old saree! 😛 Thanks to an amazing tailor who stitched it perfectly & understood what I exactly what I desired. This anarkali has received a lot of compliments from all my friends.

How can my list of red be over without a red bag! 😉 This is a Lavie & like all my reds I’m head over heels in love with it! You can read about it here.

Everyone has some obsession or the other. I hope there’s someone out there who is as crazy as I am. I don’t know if anyone noticed it before but the background color of my blog is RED! 😛

I loved writing this blog & I hope you guys love reading it too!

Catching up on the Sneakers Trend!

Aaaaaand I’m back with yet another shoe story! 😛

The sneakers or better yet the slip on sneakers are catching up on the fashion front these days. Everywhere you turn around, you’ll probably spot a person or two wearing these. Sneakers are very comfortable & are amazingly trendy. They look great with dresses, denims, shorts, palazzos & even maxis! Yes, I saw a girl carrying off this amazing look with so much panache that she made me want to wear them with a maxi skirt! Though I haven’t tried this look till now but I did pamper myself with a pair. 🙂

I went to shop at Forever 21 and spotted these babies but blame it on my luck they weren’t available in my size! 😦 This happens to me a lot & sadly I can’t do anything about it. But this time I was hell bent on getting these as I knew that sneakers would pick up pace & every fashion addict would splurge on one! So I went to almost all outlets of Forever 21 & finally at one store, I FOUND THEM! Yay. 🙂

IMG_20150302_190841

So these are my slip on sneakers and being the shoe addict that I’m, I just had to blog about them. I sported this casual look for a shopping trip to the mall ( I’m a compulsive shopaholic 😀 ) I like wearing black, just can’t get enough of this color! ❤

Henderson Silk!!

Sale and shoes are two words that can cheer me up at any time of the day and when they are spoken in the same breath, I go in a trance. 😛

After reaching home from office on Saturday, a friend informed me that Clarks was having a sale!! 😀 I dropped my bag, grabbed my wallet & car keys and literally ran to the parking lot! Upon reaching, I was lost for words. Every pair was calling out to me. I felt like a little girl in dreamland! 🙂

I can be a pain in the neck while buying shoes cause I may ask for 20 pairs and not buy one if they don’t appeal to me!! But the sales boy patiently got me every shoe I asked for. I was so confused what to buy & what not to! 😦

Finally, my eyes fell on these beautiful tan shoes. Henderson Silk were priced at INR 4999 but since it was 50% sale, they became mine for just INR 2499! 🙂 These are my second pair from Henderson range. You can read about the first in this blog.

They are extremely comfortable flat shoes, which is good for me cause I’m tall. The shoes can be worn with any kind of outfit! The color of the shoes complement all colors of ensembles!

Shoe Fetish!!

It might be quite evident from my last few posts how crazy I am about footwear. 😛 Well, it all began when I was just two years old. It was my first trip to the mall. My mom went to a shoe store to buy herself a new pair of shoes. As soon as we purchased the shoes and reached the door, a siren went off. The guard at the gate smiled and pointed at my hand. My mom looked & was befuddled to see me holding a shoe in my hand! 😀 Yes, I had picked up a red belly (not even my size) from the store, apparently cause I loved it. We went back to the manager to clear the mess but he was more than amused and informed my mom that he knew we would come back cause I had picked up only one shoe. >:)

So that’s how began my shoe madness. Wherever I went, I bought a pair of shoes. Shoes are, undoubtedly, my first love. If I’m happy, I buy, if I’m sad, I buy, whenever I get my salary I straightway head to Clarks, Carlton London, Forever 21. Shoes give me a boost! 😛 I know most people don’t understand it & my family and friends think I’m crazy. But nothing deters me from pampering myself with a new pair of shoes. 🙂

I’ll let the pictures do the talking 😀

Brogues Love!!

Ever since I saw somebody wearing these amazing brogues, I knew I had to own a pair! 😛 Thence, began my search for an exceptional pair of brogues. Wherever I looked, I was disappointed. Either my size wasn’t available or the color was too bright or they weren’t comfortable. I thought of giving up. 😦 But as they say a step ahead lies success where you give up!

IMG-20141222-WA0008

I stumbled upon Clarks website and found these splendid pair of bone colored brogues. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say it was love at first sight1 😛 But my heart sank when I looked at its price. I was almost broke since I had spent all my salary on winter clothes, socks, make up ( to name a few :-D) I felt as if nothing could fill this void that these shoes left!

IMG-20141215-WA0001

I would spend the whole day staring at these shoes, awaiting a miracle. And guess what, my prayers were answered! 🙂 A few days later, I saw that these shoes were on sale and if things couldn’t get better, they were available in my size.

IMG-20141223-WA0007

Without wasting any precious second, I placed an order. The original price was 4000 INR but I got them for 2000 INR. They were delivered to me in a week.

IMG-20141222-WA0009

Now I can’t get over it. I flaunt them at every occasion! 😉 And they have attracted quite a lot of attention! 🙂 Don’t they look alluring? Well, finally I found my perfect pair of brogues!

Much love,

ASP:-)

These boots are made for WALKING!

When it comes to shoes, I know no limit. I feel as if I need to own every kind of shoe ever made! Though there’s still a long way to go but I’m on my way! 🙂

I never owned boots so this winter I knew I needed an amazing pair of boots. Since its so cold out there, I thought of online shopping. Myntra.com was the first name that popped in my head as I’ve never been disappointed by them. They make the delivery within two days & the packaging is splendid, which is what I love.

I am not a fan of knee length boots so my obvious choice was to go for ankle length ones. Since they were going to be my first pair of boots, I played safe and looked for black ones only. I found these amazing GetGlamr boots priced at 1999 INR but since I ordered during the GOSF sale I got them for 1299 INR.

IMG-20141223-WA0006

It wasn’t a surprise that they delivered the boots within two days though the mail informed the boots would be delivered in 10! 🙂 But when I tried them they turned out to be a size small. Disappointed, I mailed them explaining my misfortune. To my utter disbelief, their executive called the next day and assured me that the problem would be taken care of. They exchanged the boots in just 48 hours making me a very happy girl! 🙂

IMG-20141223-WA0008

Now I can’t stop gazing at them. 😉 Very comfortable, immensely stylish & smart.

Thank you Myntra.com for walking the talk and yet again proving your popularity! 🙂

Much love,

ASP 🙂
