She still has it goin'

Ok so maybe Kate Middleton might consider this absolutely looney and also bordering on creepy that I have been researching her fashion statements post the Royal Wedding, ever so rigorously. But I'm sure you understand that, that is also a mark of a good well-researched blog post *pats self on back*. So if I haven't given it away in so many words already, I have compiled a post to sum up Kate Middleton's hand picked- few best ever casual-chic fashion moments, post The Wedding. The most exciting aspect of Kate Middleton's style still remains that her classic British roots shine through in all her outfits. Personally for me, a Duchess who is not a slave to designers and wears high-street with as much élan is an out and out winner.
Take a look at my handpicked favourites:
Blouse and skirt: Alexander McQueen

Blouse and Skirt: Whistles

Dress: Diane Von Furstenburg

Coat: Catherine Walker, Shoes: L K Bennett

Blouse: Alice by Temperley

Jeans: J Brand, Jacket: Smythe

Dress: Zara, Shoes: L K Bennett

Another interesting facet to Kate's style is the fact that its fairly simple to take a leaf out of her book. Fuss-free shift dresses, blouses in laces and nudes, classic toned wedges and pumps (primarily in black and nude) and throw in classic well-cut jackets and you are good to go.
Are you as bowled over by the Duchess' effortless style as I am? Share your thoughts on this post :)

Here i am wearing  a bright orange/rust shirt from and a polka dotted skirt from Colaba.Polka dots are big trend and for this fall/winter the polka dots are going to bigger & better.The bright orange shirt adds a pop of colour to the outfit .
Lace is extremely feminine.You can toughen the look up with a gold chunky chain .I love lace and this dress is from dorothy perkins .To make it look less girly and more edgy/quirky,you can wear a Black lace shirt with high waisted denim shorts.

Diva-li Rants

Season's finest greetings to all my readers across the globe :)
Here in the Indian sub-continent, the festivities begin with the advent of October and only end after ushering in the New Year. So yeah, simply put, its 3 months of absolute, unadulterated fun and festive cheer. Now who wouldn't like that? :)
For this slightly nippy occasion of Diwali where all you see as far as your sight takes you are lights and gleam, I chose to wear an outfit in the combination of Golden and Fuchsia. I broke the rules this time and absolutely refused to wear a full-length Anarkali. Yes, I know that is probably the most sought after style of kurtis today but after having succumbed to different versions of the same in the past, this time I put my foot down.
Maybe you should take a look yourself to decide ;)

My attempt at a Rangoli, like every year! :)
This ensemble breaks a lot of rules. Silver embellishments on a golden jamawar, golden bangles teamed up with silver ones but if you know how to do it, you can definitely pull a dull gold and a silver together.
Share your Diva-li rants with me, fashionistas <3

Polka Princess takes over

Hey there!
Surprised to see a new face smiling out at you instead of dear old Shreya??? Well.......I'm lucky enough to be guest posting for her today! And I promise not to bore you!!  :)
First things first... I'm Polka Princess from Chappals v Stilletoes, a fashion blog which has become more than a hobby for me & which has helped me connect to numerous like-minded fashion-crazy (or not-so-crazy) individuals from all around the world! I'm myself a fashion designer by qualification, a visual merchandiser by profession & a stylist by passion. I started my blog around a year back to share my love of fashion with others & today, I can proudly say that I've established wonderful relationships with some such amazing people from all over the world (the author of this blog being one of them).........& my lovely readers never fail to encourage & support me to take my blog to new heights... :))
When Shreya asked me to guest post for her, I racked my brains for a good idea for a post that'll engage & interest her readers and at the same time, give them an opportunity to experience my personal style sensibilities..........after all, I strongly believe that being one's own self is the core foundation of a good fashion blog!
After much deliberation & not-so-much discussion (with Shreya), I decided to do a post on outfits based on a color theme. I should tell you here that I'm very much of a "colors" person.......... meaning that at any given place & time, you'll find at least 3 different colors on me!
So, it's no surprise that my post will be color-related! :)
Well.........I don't know about you all, but I, for one, adore the combination of Blue & Green. I feel that it's a very vibrant & interesting combination that go well with most other colors and that instantly make an outfit worth noticing! In fact, scientifically speaking, there are a good number of reasons why one feels good wearing these colors.  Blue is the color of inspiration, sincerity & spirituality, while Green represents nature, life & fertility. Both the colors have a soothing & calming quality and coupled together, they symbolize balance & growth, thus emitting a positive energy. I've tried out this combination on many successful instances & I thought I'll share the same with you all.

What do you guys think? Do I rock this killer color combo? Or have you guys played around with it & rigged up great outfits too??? Do let me know........ :)

Lots of love,
Polka Princess
P.S.: Hope you all liked me at least half as much as you like Shreya! ^_^
