Round and Round and Round to Right There: Personal Fashion

Images by Hrishikesh Vimadalal Dress: Comme Des Garcons; Boots: Rick Owens 

Whenever you feel like you are going round and round and round in circles you have to force yourself to take another path. I know it seems like a very logical and an almost "Ofcourse" thing anyone should do when feeling stuck, but I think 90% of the times we don't actually make the effort to find a different way and take it. Just saying.

I Can Run But I Can't Hide: Personal Fashion

Images by Rishi Satsangi 

Tights: American Apparel; Leather Dress: Patricia Fields; Hologram Necklace: Topshop; Jacket: Vintage;  Shoes:  Irregular Choices

 I know I have been MIA for a while and for that I am kinda sorry about not really. Life has been happening and sometimes its ok to just pause something you've been doing for a long time to invite something new to take place. New experiences keep life a lot more exciting and refreshed right? Don't worry I am not going anywhere and yes I will be around more regularly, but as I said, some seriously good shit has been happening, so I am just living in the moment and taking it all in. 

 Have some crazy ideas in my head for styling shoots for this blog which I am excited to get to soon. This was a quick shoot I did yesterday in my friend's backyard just to get into the swing of blogging.

Cats on My Back: Personal Fashion

Images by Hrishikesh Vimadalal 

Hat: Meerwiibli by Sarah-maria; Shoes: Rick Owens; Everything else thrifted 

       This post consists of all of my favourite finds from the last couple of months. I paid $12.50 for that coat at a thrift store in North Carolina. Found this awesome princess Leia hat in Beacon, NY and this incredible tiger backpack online from some chinese website. The backpack is a conversation maker anywhere you go. It is huge and people can't help but talk about it, eye it and roll their eyes a bit when they see it. So if you do intend on getting one, just keep that in mind. 

       Also HAPPY FREAKING 2014 Y'all!! I have to take this moment to thank my fantastic photographers of 2013! 

- Hrishikesh Vimadalal: who shot most of 2013 is absolutely fantastic! 

- Jackie Russo: who helped me the entire 2012 and part of 2013, graduated this year from NYU with fantastic grades and I am super proud of her achievements! 

- Shraddha Borawake: The original DSM photog/ artist extraodinaire 

- Alison Wynn: The best-crazy-friend-photog combo 

- Upasana Jain: Ex- DSM photog who moved to India and did a shot again this year when I was visiting India. 

- Tamanna Shaikh

And thank you all for keeping up with me. Even when I don't post too regularly sometimes. 2013 was a stressful year and I am so glad it's over. You guys are the best and I am infinitely grateful for the love.

Style Me on the Street - Part 3

Images by Shraddha Borawake 

This is the last part of the 3 part "Style me on the street" project that I have been posting lately. We took it a bit further this time by processing the final images slightly [ok a lot] crazy. All Shraddha's idea and work. I love how it started with a styling project of fashion, then became a performance of sorts by doing it on the street and involving strangers to participate and then became a composition by making the participants form a picture frame in real life by posing and ultimately in this series, the pictures are further edited to take on a whole new artistic look and composition. 

Here are Part 1 and Part 2 of this project. Love Ji [our friend] sleeping on the floor in the first series and the guy with the orange poster. He walked up to us to participate and had this poster on him that Shraddha asked him to use in the picture. The girl styling me in the first series put bindis of all different colors all over my face. I think that looked pretty awesome. The lady in the last image on the right has a pretty cool blog herself. Her name is Anjula Carrier and you can check it out here

Halloween 2013

This halloween I dressed up as a tribal chief. It was a super last minute plan and I made up the entire outfit in 20 mins total. My friends and I walked in the village halloween parade and it was awesome! Hope you guys had a fab Halloween too.

PS: All pictures are iphone pics, hence the poor quality.
