Wearing: Caroline Hedaya pale pink sheer pouf dress, Report Signature Edson multi sandals, W brown braided belt.


I recently went for an event in honor of a prospective website I may be contributing to soon (more on that later) and decided that this pale pink Caroline Hedaya dress would be perfect for it. The delicate sheer is in tune with the feminine touches; the pouf skirt with tulle underlay and the quintessentially girly subdued pink.

I have always been slightly obsessed with poofy anything (Ahem: Exhibit A) because it makes your legs look longer than a more fitted skirt does. It's the same reason I love nude shoes, they give the illusion of your legs being a few inches longer because it merges with your skin. And for shorties like myself, every inch counts.

I just added the belt to give it more shape and to define the waist. It was a little looser around there. Plus, it breaks the monotony of all pink.

The fabulous people over at Report Signature sent me these gorgeous shoes. I am kind of obsessed. They're so fun, with all the color splotches. They up the ante on an otherwise neutral hued outfit, like this one. They're also pretty comfortable, I wore them to FNO (see: last post) and walked around the mall and for as high the heel is, my feet did not feel number that something left out in the snow for a week.

Score!

And now I am going to confide in you and tell you an embarrassing story of international proportions. Okay, not quite but it's pretty humiliating.
So funny story. Mali, Naina, Alexis and I decided to go to the Forever 21 launch in India, being held in Ambience Mall in Delhi. So now, unbeknown to us, there are in fact, TWO Ambience malls in Delhi. Of course, we didn't have the slightest clue so we went anyway. So Mali's driver is new and he has no clue where anything is. We end up in Saket instead of NFC which is the other end of Delhi.  Then we had to go back to NFC to pick up some friends and then we went to Gurgaon. We get inside the mall, search for the store for half an hour, called some friends who had already reached and were informed we were at the WRONG MALL. Epic fail. So we drove all the way back to Vasant Kunj which is where the correct mall was and reached just in time to grab some accessories. Of course, we spent about 20 minutes fighting over who's fault it was. The whole escapade was just embarrassing. Of course, I am aware that the majority of my audience is from the States so you have no idea of these locations but eh. Just don't laugh too hard. I didn't put this up here just for shits and giggles!

At Fashion's Night Out INDIA

Fashion's Night Out India was held at Emporio Mall in New Delhi on Friday, the 10th. I went with my friends and fellow bloggers Naina, Malavika and Alexis. It was much better than expected and we had fun!

Mali experimenting with Versace.

She's wearing: ASOS jeggings, Carlton London cutout ankle boots, ASOS batwing graphic shirt, thrifted hipster glasses (not wearing here, these are Versace), vintage Indian necklace.

She's cultivating her artsy photographer image. Isn't that necklace the coolest? So eclectic.

At Gaurav Gupta. Absolute favorite of all Indian designers showcasing. He has the most incredible stuff.

Talking with Gaurav. Such a shame I didn't go for his Couture Week show.

The clothes were not to be believed. Indian but with western silhouettes. Suspended over a  a little fountain, it was magical. All tulle and sequins and crystal bibs.

I THINK this is Varun Sardana (at Ensemble) but I'm not positive so don't quote me on it.

I got FNO India shirt by Manish Arora and it was, in my opinion, one of the best. Better than New York or London (seriously, what was that?) or Milan. It's done in his usual flamboyant style, heavy on the bright colors and eastern references. Seriously, I'll post it up asap and you can see for yourself. There were two FNO India shirts, actually. The other one being designed by Rajesh Pratap Singh. I only chose the MA because it looked more quintessentially Indian, y'know?

I got to finger the Burberry thigh highs I've been lusting after for months and try on Manish Malhotra for MAC lipstick (I didn't even know of this collaboration. Shame on me). I'm not very savvy with Indian designers and so I decided to forgo the first two floors, brimming with Armani (they were playing "Baby" by Justin Bieber in there. I puked on one of the $1000 tuxes. I kid, I kid) and Kenzo (obsessed) and checked out the top two floors that housed a ton of cool Indian designers I hadn't really paid attention to. There was Gaurav Gupta and Manish Arora of course, also Malini Ramani (who happens to be extremely nice, as well!), Varun Sardana, Prashant Verma , Suneet Verma (who put designed a super long sari for FNO exclusively that 25 people 10 hours a day for 3 months to make and it's done in lightweight georgette with other fabrics appliqu├ęd on it; tie die velvet, chiffon, satin). There was the occasional celebrity sighting here and there and a couple of interestingly dressed people.

Oh, say hi to my friend Elin, the designer at Stylein! I'm wearing their jacket here and see my shout out here.

Update on the shirt coming soon!
