8. Twisted-Front Metallic Dress- forever21.com

Note : asos.com usually delivers within 10 days, so if you order soon, your dress should reach before NYE. But because of holiday traffic I would urge you to check with them. There also will be additional duties over and above the price of the dress.

 

Hope this list helps you find something for the big night :)

Weekly Wishlist – Balmain x H&M

If you’re into fashion, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week, you’d know that everyone has been going bananas over the Balmain x H&M collection that”s out on November 5th. Olivier Rousteing and his squad of It girls have taken over instagram and even got the Backstreet Boys out of hiding for the launch party.

While we still have a little while to get our hands on the collection (here in India we’ll have to depend on our phoren friends/aunty jis) I couldn’t help but google all of the pieces and think of how they perfect they would look hanging in my closet. The collection if full of glitz and its release just before the festive season is perfect!

For this week’s wishlist, I went a little overboard and created three different  looks for three different occasions- A Monochrome Dinner (sleek and sophisticated with just a little bit of sexy); A Christmas Extravaganza (incomplete without lots of dancing, although I’m not sure the shoes would oblige); and a Glam New Years Eve (with sequins and thigh high suede boots of course, as every NYE should be) I had so much fun creating this post! Especially because I absolutely fell in love with the collection. It oozes the edgy glamour that Balmain is famous for and is still in the reach of the masses (although for us Indians, is still pricey- I don’t see myself spending $650 on a dress, but a girl can dream 😉 Leave me a comment if you liked the looks!

Until next time,

Weekly Wishlist- Birthday Edition

Last week I celebrated my 25th birthday (and went into a full-blown quarterlife crisis) . My gift to myself was a trek in Kashmir (which was cut short due to terrible weather- bummer) And if I hadn’t spent all my money on the trip, my birthday haul would’ve looked something like this :)

-WEEKLY WISHLIST- sale finds (1)

 

Ever since I started my blog, the single most common question I get asked is – “How do you afford all those clothes?”

And my answer is always the same- I shop at sales. I ALWAYS shop at sales. I am the crazy person waiting outside Forever New at 8 am on the first day of a sale ready to run in and grab everything in sight. And I don’t care if people think I’m insane. I still do it.

Luckily for all you lazy bums, a lot of really nice brands are available online- and on sale! So this week’s wishlist consists only of pieces that are available on Indian sites on sale right now .

Happy Shopping :)
