Bombay by Night

How can you love bombay and not love the humid breezy bombay nights? Well, you can't! The only time when the streets aren't overloaded with cars and auto rikshaws. The only time when people aren't walking in herds trying to push each other over to get from one place to another in a hurry. Nights are the only time you get to admire the city lights that cast a little spell of sorts against the pitch dark sky. When little bicyle vendors are surrounded by Big cars trying to buy the last cigarette of the night or sipping a hot cup of coffee before passing out.

How can you miss all that?

My friends dragged me to a place called Kino 108, a quaint looking exterior for a buzzing lounge, tucked behind the crazy metro construction and between two very shamelessly unkempt buildings. The tiny elevator takes you to a really dark room bustling with some very trendy hipsters grooving to the blasting house music while sipping some seriously yummy cocktails. The night was perfect as was the idea of going back in an auto at 3am, wih rain gods showering us with their blessings(or wrath!)

A perfect night called for a perfect outfit... since, simplicity is NOT my middle name.. I ditched my boring denims and tees to slp into a newly found dress. When you pack light, you end up finding yourself without any accessories to match your outfit of choice. this is the exact situation where a lovely little magic trick comes to your rescue.

If you haven't figured out already ... I mean a red lipstick. If you've ever used one, you know the power it posesses.. it makes your skin look flushed, your eyes darker and your smile... well, only stunning! Okay, okay I'm sure you get the picture.

Dress - Dark Waters, Shoes - Bata, Hairband - Twisted, Lip Color - Nina Ricci
This was also the night I was supposed to catch up with two lovely blog buddies ;)
Hope to see you soon girls as soon as our schedules magically align :D
PS - I'm so thrilled that you guys liked the hair cut...!!! It was first time in a long time I decided to grow my hair only to get them brutallly cut (once again!). With the thickness of my hair, its very hard to even imagine the amount of shampoo, conditioner, leave in, serum expense it would require to maintain... and then the hours spent taming those tresses... ha, this haircut is totally wash and wear :D
Much Love,
