Good versus Evil

In the mood for festivities as we discuss devas versus asuras, good versus evil and Ram versus Raavan. It was only appropriate that we give a fashionable ode to the Ramleela. 
Both of us played the good and the bad in our own right and courtesy Swarovski's newest collection, we used the jewellery to represent Victorian Era at one end and the grunge and edgy at the other.
As Sonu got ready to play the perfect little angel, Jasleen cashed in on a dark side. What do you think of our interpretation of good versus evil? 

The Swarovski collection Kingdom of Jewels in stores now!

Black Blazer - Use it Differently Part I

Today, we challenge the good ol' classic black blazer and make a bit more weekend appropriate. Pair it with a favorite denims, a sequin top and voila you have a fun party look. Endorsing comfort, we opted for flats and added an extra punch with our everyday bling!
Hope you enjoy the video! Stay tuned for Part II of the video.

Take 5: Charles & Keith

So we already know that any sensible girl swears by Charles & Keith heels for their ultimate comfort. However, we witnessed the recent makeover at their newly launched (and might we add, huge) store. This is our take on the top 5 things we didn't know about them.
1. Arm Swag:
 Did you know that Charles & Keith makes some really awesome arm candy? Truly stylish and rich bracelets they have a Hermes vibe. Chic and timeless they can be worn alone or as a stack up.

2. Indian bling:
With their more stiff upper lip vibe usually, we were happy to see an addition of simple Festive elements in their clutches and shoes. Still very C & K, the collection is classy.

3. Hot off the ramp:
Charles & Keith have always had lovely bags but this time we were happy to see trends straight off the ramp - satchels, slings, tassels and boxy styles that are bang on trend. Even their sunglasses got a major face lift with butterfly, cat eyes and quirky additions to the lot.

4. Gadget friendly:
We love our precious gadgets and Charles & Keith has introduced their line of laptop sleeves and ipad covers that can dress them up in style.

5. Animal fetish:
Breaking away from the English uptown girl image, the brand has pumped up on the glamour quotient with snakeskin influences in big and small ways.

Fined?

The big bad world of fashion is infamous for being shallow and superficial. Whether it's wearing the same outfit twice or carrying the same bag like the other girl are by far the biggest crimes as a fashionista. We on the other hand, love to recycle and can't resist ourselves if we love the same item (this happens way too many times).
Fashion for us is an expression and an extension of our personality, mood and inspirations. So, don't get bogged down with these so-called faux pas, so what if you and your bestie like the same shirt? Just wear it in two different styles, treat it as a fashion challenge not a faux pas. Now, you decide did we succeed in our challenge?

Jasleen wore a jumpsuit with a wrap

Sonu wore a scarf print blouse with denims
