(T)urbanization!

Special days call for special efforts. Today I received an unsuspecting little parcel lying in my bedroom. Assuming its another official letter or something, I opened the envelope rather indifferently. Out came a teeny tiny net cloth tied into a bunch with pretty little red bow. Me being me, got super excited and ravaged through the packaging to reveal the mysterious item lying beneath. What was it?? hmm... well... ... okay can't create anymore suspense ..
It was a pretty little colorful ring!!! total oh my god moment... I'm being proposed to in the most unusual style!! (without a rock and candle light dinner and the kneeling and the wine... arrgghhh!!)

Well turning over the envelope, I read a familiar name scribbled - Koshy.

My answer is Yes, Yes, Yes!
So what if you're unemployed and younger and still a female? We can make it work, I promise

haha
, okay jokes apart, it totally made my day receiving the precious little ring I won on her giveaway. Well, since Drama is my middle name henceforth. I used the ring in an absolutely unconventionally dramatically rad way (adjective overload!).

This post is also an ode to the lovely blogger sisters at Republic of Chic. I have tried turban before here, but this time with way more finesse thanks to their kickass tutorial!!

Check it out, y'all!















Top(worn inside) - Oldnavy, Crochet Tunic - Colaba Causeway, Leggings - Chunmun stores, Shoes - Soft n Sleek, Turban (made with dupatta) - W, Ring (on forehead) - Koshy's giveaway, Bangles - Colaba Causeway, Necklace - Janpath.

Also, if this day wasn't enough exciting, middle of my shoot I got a call from my head office and I'm going down to Bombay for a week starting this Sunday ... yipeee!!Although I'll be working day, night, midnight and beyond shooting a Furnishing trend story I'm compiling for the magazine... I'd love to meet some of you Bombay bloggers and get access to your haunts on the weekend!! Help me plan my Bombay itinerary ... places to visit(non touristy ofcourse), places to shop, eat, party, drink, pass out (okay, may be not the last one).... !

Much Love,

you are totally rocking the turban..in fact loved everything..the eyeshadow, the necklace and the ring too..and i cheked out the collection..i think it is really something which can be worn straight out of the runway...the loose silhouettes give a very feminine and structured look at the same time..i didn't know about this designer ..thanks for pointing out :)
