About Me

How it all began? A small walk down the lane :  

I have always been a laid-back girl who wanted to dress up good but didn’t want to feel exhausted in that process. I would see my friends around trying to dress up as celebrities, imitate various red-carpet trends, and eventually complain about how they don’t have the right guidance and knowledge to make a fashion look come alive. That got me thinking for a bit.

I wanted to create something extraordinary out of some simple elements. 

I feel anyone can look good in high-end fashion brand outfits, but the real talent lies in procuring something affordable and easily accessible and creating a ramp walk-ready look out of it.

I have been personally inspired by Sushmita Sen (a famous Indian actor, entrepreneur, and Miss Universe Winner 1994), who in one of her interviews talked about creating a ‘Miss Universe Pageant Outfit’ by fetching simple and affordable fabric from a fashion market in New Delhi that goes by the name of Sarojini Nagar Market.

I knew I had to do something of the same kind. As a young girl, I began doodling various jewelry designs in my notebook. The initial appreciation came from my mother and that meant the world to me. I slowly started studying multiple fabrics. I then took a course in stitching and knitting various kinds of fabrics.

In my high school, I took up fashion design as one of my subjects and aced at it.

I pursued a degree in English Literature in college and completed my Masters in English Literature and Linguistics in the year 2020. Since then, I have worked in various career profiles. I first started working in the Sales Department and then moved on to become a teacher, and finally as a curriculum designer for English at a giant corporation. Amidst all this hustle and bustle of life, I have kept the dream of beauty and fashion alive in me. 

I follow the works of various fashion designers. The works of Manish Malhotra and Allesandro Michelle inspire me a lot.

Over time, I have realized that the world of fashion is not just restricted to clothes. It spans over every area of your life, be it your daily beauty regime, your home, your entire personality. And that’s when I decided to come up with this blog.

Why this Blog? What’s so special about it? Huh ?๐Ÿค”

Rightfully asked! Why this page? What am I going to get here that I can’t find elsewhere? 

The answer in one word would be “accessibility”. I try to bring fashion to your dressing table. I try to share my guidance on outfits, various beauty secrets, and tips. I also cover nails, home decor, jewelry, wedding attire, wedding decor makeup, and a lot more. You name it and we have it. I don’t try to change ‘you’ from who you are. Rather, I focus on showing the quintessential you to the whole world. 

I believe in gender fluidity and that’s why, I try to create something that anyone and everyone can find relatable. 

Hope you find something that you came looking for ๐Ÿงก
