High-Street Trends Online? Not in India, Baby!

Time for some not-so-random rant J

Like most of you, I love finding jaw-dropping eye-popping deals online. Stuff that makes me go “You won’tbelieve how much I got this for!” in front of others.
But the rarest thing is finding high-street trends on the Indian sites. Because they give you none!(yeah, except for maybe 1 or 2 websites that come slightly close to the category but not enough for me to be talking about them)

We’re all exposed to the hot 'off-the-runway’more or less affordable versions in the offline space (ZARAs and MANGOs of theworld), why not have an online brand for us Indians that can serve the same purpose minus the offline overheads?
Like I mentioned, I keep myself updated with who’s selling what and bookmark my favorites. Here are some online brands I'm digging for their affordability and merchandise

Studded Tee at Love culture for $16 (approx. INR 850)

Geometric Print Jeans at GoJane for $34 (approx. INR 1800)

Tribal print crop top at Gojane for $15 (approx. INR 800)

Suede Peep-toes at Gojane for $27 (approx. INR 1450)

Sequined Jumper at Miss Guided for 26 Euros (approx. INR 1800) 

Lace Peplum Dress at Boohoo for 26 Euros (approx. INR 1800)

Aztec Neon Necklace at The Quiet Riot for $4 (INR 215)

I’d love to have a website giving me these at the same prices within India. After all, no sane soul will pay more than double the amount for shipping from these sites to India.

Is anyone listening?

Discovering Globus

The new collection at Globus is a burst of colors. Some very nomad chic pieces and others contemporary and refined for those who don't want to burn a hole in their pocket.

My favorite were the bags. I saw everything from neons to smart color blocks and different textures.

 The green clutch below looked stellar and extremely reasonable at that.

Globus is one brand that does Ethno-chic very well. Remember Deepika padukone in Love AajKal? The blue kurta and Red churidar? It flew away from the racks at Globus and you could spot the Delhi University girls wearing them over and over again. Cray cray!

Few other things i liked
This sheer mint blouse

      Fun graphic tshirts for men

They had a whole lot of cute accesories, would have been difficult to click one thing so i took a shot of the entire wall. Go check it out yourself :)

All things beautiful.

What is it that grips us when we see something beautiful. Something inside us turns and twists, our hands itch to feel them, hold them, posses them. Funny how we work hard to earn every single penny that we do (well, atleast most of us) and it takes just a couple of minutes, a glance and we give in to the temptation of owning it. We convince ourselves that we need it, but who are we kidding? We tell ourselves well this and some of those and that is totally worth it. But hey *smirks*

It's not just confined to racy lingerie. Lace is now about sophistication and feminity. It will dress you up but never dress you down.
Everyone's wearing it !
Its a sexy trend no doubt but isn't there a thing called too much lace?
There you go..Thats too much lace.

Jessica Alba at Chanel Haute Couture Fashion show. Lace dress with Black Lace Loubs. But she manages to look beautiful so WTH.

Kristen Stewart at Kids Choice awards 2012
Not crushing on the shade of blue but works for her!

And more recently, Sonakshi Sinha in a Shantanu and Nikhil dress.

And the following is my humble take on lace

Pleats + Lace+Three quarter sleeves= Exactly my idea of a lace dress
I was surprised at how quickly i found something so close to what i wanted.

                                                                    Dress- Mango
                                                       Necklace/Shoes- Forever21
                                                             Clutch- Accessorize
                                                                     Belt- Pieces
                                                                   Bracelet- Gifted

                                                   On my lips: Ambika pillai- Flame

                                  Time to bring in The Fashion Nazi

      Lacy things that should disappear from the face of earth:

NO it's not classy. It's just impossible for any one to pull off these ugly-ass piece of clothing.
Unless, ofcourse, you're going to a strip club.
Um. Wait.
No. Not even then.

That's all for now

My first ASOS haul !

I've known about it long enough and read a zillion haul posts of it, it was time for me to jump on the bandwagon. Yes I'm talking about ASOS. IF you dont know about it, well hello! Were you living under a rock? ASOS stands for As-Seen-On-Screen, Its a UK based website which has clothing, accesories and shoes. Brands like Mango, FCUK, Vero Moda, Aldo, Tommy Hilfiger, River Island and lots more! ASOS also manufactures its own which is what I like the most on this website. The ASOS's own stuff is affordable and very nice. They have the latest trends and some to-die for sales.

Speaking of which, they have an amazing 70% sale going on with new stuff coming on it everyday. I had been checking the bags section of asos Every.Single.Day from past few weeks for a particular envelope clutch, I found it in stock finally!
Here it is :

I also found another cute bag, which is very ME! It was love at first sight :)

Now I just hope the parcel reaches me and doesn't get lost/misplaced or whatever on its way. They have a good customer care service available to you at all times on facebook and twitter by the name of ASOS here to help. I got instant reply to my queries. Hopefully, there should be no glitches :)

What do you think about stuff I've purchased? Your reviews good/bad about the service and quality of products at ASOS are most welcome!
