I Wear: Lavasa Lady

Travelling was much easier when I was a teenager, primarily because I was a tomboy and could safely be excused from any manner of grooming, styling or posh-ladyism. Now that I’ve acquired the trappings of my sex, it’s getting harder and harder to stay innovative, stylish, well-turned out and also conveniently mobile. Take this weekend, …

The Lavasa Chronicles: Travelers’ Anecdotes

Travel. A weekend away from the city. Seven other interesting people. A time for many conversations and memories. Here are a few snippets from my Lavasa diary: My favorite cars One thing that never occurred to me was that the participating rally cars themselves would be photo-ops. Most participants had decorated their cars, some representing …

The Lavasa Chronicles: A Mixed Bag

This is going to be an off-the-top-of-my-head post just jotting down sundry thoughts from my experience. A number of more detailed posts will follow this and I’ll link-update them as they come up. ~O~O~O~O~O~O~   I’m just back from the Lavasa Women’s Drive weekend. Over 250 participants from Mumbai and 150-odd from Pune competed in …

Scarf It Up!

Accessories fascinate me more than clothes. Through my college years, these took the form of jewelery, ranging from earrings to medallions, necklaces, anklets, rings, belts and every form of adornment I could find. When I started work, most of my jewelery had to be put away as it was too funky/ impractical/ irreverent/ inappropriate for …

I Style!: Keep An Eagle Eye On That Bag!

I’m one of those women who loves big bags. I hated the style of tiny, itty-bitty handbags and clutches are my personal cross to bear. My favorite bags are all large, roomy creations. But sitting down at a restaurant or a cafe usually poses a problem. Such bags usually need a chair of their own …

I Wear: Accessorizing Colour Blocks

Colour blocking is a trend that appeals to me on account of its drama. The sheer audacity that lets one pair purple with yellow or green and orange really sings out to the unabashed colour lover. On the other hand, it conflicts with another of my style-tendencies, viz – accessorizing. All the colour blocking I’ve …

I Style!: Matchless Shoes

I spotted this at the post-rally celebration at Lavasa this weekend. Shibani Kashyap performed the Lavasa anthem and right after that came a cutesy boy band called SQS Supastars. They began with hot favorites like ‘It’s My Life’ and progressed even to ‘I Will Survive’. The women hooted, they cheered and they enjoyed themselves as …

An Omelette Starts My Day Sunny Side Up!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Growing up in a Tamilian household meant that this was invariably idli-dosa fare. Any South-Indian will tell you that these are fun to eat only when you don’t have to eat them everyday. On account of that unvarying diet as a child, I find my favorite way …
