The Orange Bicycle


Tucked away in one of Bangalore’s quiet residential area - Indiranagar, lies an absolutely delightful little store for all things fun and quirky. Started by 4 young girls as an endeavour to bring together innovative designs from all across India to the shoppers of Bangalore, The Orange Bicycle houses more than 80 designers’ products ranging from apparel to accessories to home decor. The store is sky rocketing on the Quirk quotient and a must visit if you’re in Bangalore.

This being my first visit to the garden city, I made it point to hangout with the happening Bangalore crowd. And who better to take shopping than the super awesome fashion bloggers – Ruhi Sheikh of Republic of Chic and Smrithi Rao of Vintage Obsessions. After a brief catching up and discussing the future of blogging and other random topics, we got down to what we do best – Shopping! Well, almost. So here is a selection of products we recommend from Orange Bicycle:

Ruhi is a minimalist and recommends the powder blue twist lock clutch.

She also finds this printed bag pretty cool.

Smrithi fell in love with the patchwork ankle high thong shoes and purchased them in a heartbeat!

I loved the kitschy vibe of this bag, which unlike the done-to-death movie poster bags, its still very interesting.

The orange Bicycle dress was the first thing that caught our eye. Simple, and so totally chic. Its a must, must must buy!

The ruffles on this top are so perfect for the resort wear mood that I’m in!

The Red, the chains, the statement necklace .... what’s not to love?

Smrithi and Ruhi were the perfect city guides and I had such a blast doing this post with them. 

My next stopover is Pondicherry, stay tuned!

Much Love,
