That it is summer is evident everywhere. It’s on the catalogues of Gucci, Pucci, Moschino and Valentino. It’s on the menus of restaurants flashing super summer time feasts. It’s showing with the amount of humidity in my hair and it’s obvious from the ladies sporting lovely sundresses across streets in my city.
But it only got official the day I got my new pair of sunglasses. After all, what’s a summer without a pair of shades?
The topic of discussion today is this new pair of Esprit sunglasses that we picked up from Pearl Enterprise. Though the company is largely an importer for some of the most renowned eyewear brands in the world, we worked our charm and got just this one pair. Black, cat-rimmed, leopard-skin printed and gorgeous!!
The glasses suit perfectly on a face that has super high cheek bones à la Cameron Diaz. The black is stark but has full coverage and helps you chase the rays just right. The fit is quite unshakable and glides conveniently too. What we like the most is the touch of tan and brown animal skin that throws out the monotony and brings in adventure.
Here is the look we put together using these…..
A black and white sundress that is ideal to beat the summer’s heat. In order to bring out the brown in these shades better, we accessorized the dress with all things tan. Since the shoes are peep toes, they are perfect to show-off a summery pedicure and the bag and earrings complete the entire look.
So what would your ideal summer accessory be?
PS: Since we are obsessed with leopard pints, we are now eyeing Pearl Enterprise’s new optical collection that has some gorgeous daily wear glasses too. Here is what we love!
My introduction to Lavie handbags was through the television commercial featuring Kareena Kapoor. It instantly struck a chord. Since then, I’ve always wanted one. The new collection offers an amazing choice. And I have my eyes set on the one featured below. I’ve already decided how I’m going to wear it.
How I’d wear my Lavie
If your handbag was as coveted, wouldn’t you want it to be the ‘hero’ piece? I’d bring out the scarlet with my lips and necklace and go black and white with the outfit. What do you think?
Phew! That’s a lot of brand names in the title. As my sister likes to put it, I’m a ‘prankster’. So I wore my newest Elle dress to the Allen Solly & Vogue ‘School Of Style’. It’s a different print for me yet within my realm.

We finally have a legit outfit post. Thanks to my sister, the ‘photographeress’, you can see the details of my look.
Dress – Elle FashionWear | Earrings – Mom’s | Belt – Elle FashionWear | Bag – Sister’s (from Mango) | Shoes – H & M
Do you think our looks work? Apart from the fact that I need to lose weight (just being honest), did I do okay?
As I wander away, I have to mention how excited I am for the first Elle FashionWear bloggers’ meet. I have to dress for a ‘mid-day in Paris’ and I’m looking for inspiration. Feel free to throw ideas at me. Thanks!

Isn’t it tricky what you should wear when you go shopping? I was headed to the Tommy Hilfiger store in Mumbai to review their spring/summer collection and hopefully, make an addition to my wardrobe.
What I wore: Flower Pot Printed Dress – Chemistry | Clutch – BlackCurrent at Bliss | Shoes – Platinum Mall, Bangkok

What I tried: I put together three different looks so you get a feel and idea of the range.
First up, it was a blue and white dress with piping on the neckline and a waist belt to match. I loved the casual avatar. The fabric is perfect for the summers, the striped pattern is classic and the silhouette comfortable. And you don’t need to break the bank to own it, it’s aptly priced.
I spent Sunday at the races. There was some great fashion on display and the sheer energy of the place made the hour and a half long wait to get in worthwhile. As fun as it was, it was also a nostalgic event. I remembered going to the derby years ago with my dad. In between races, they would a play a segment on derby dressing on the screen. I was enamoured. Little did I know then, I would be up on the screen this year dishing out tips on how to put together a look for the derby.
Take a look:
In case you were wondering what I finally wore to the derby, I’m sharing some pictures.
A vintage hat is the way to go
