All Vintage Darrrling.

Hi guys,

Outfit post of the day is a combination of mostly vintage pieces. The skirt and the top are the oldest pieces I own from Vivienne Westwood, they are from the early nineties. I got the skirt through a friend and the shirt I got on Ebay, in amazing condition. Despite the fact that I don't wear them on a daily basis, I basically bought them because I really like the cut of those garments. The shirt is quite tight with a very long double collar (a Westwood classic) and the skirt is fully pleated on the back which makes it puff out. I love it because it makes my bum bigger and although the skirt is very short, it still is very much fun but only wearable with a pair of leggings.


I can't believe how VW sizing was so small! A size UK 10 back then, is almost in between a UK 8-6 from nowadays. I have to be on one of my 'slim days' to wear them.
The shoes and the bag are also vintage. I got the shoes through an acquaintance and the bag a long time ago, on a designer second hand shop.





I was wearing: Shirt, Skirt, Shoes: Vivienne Westwood, Bag: Fendi, Jacket: McQueen, Leggings: Primark, Ring: Ydeltuyt.

See you soon.

Posing for street style at LFW

Hi guys,

A different street style post today... This picture of me was taken by Nathan Menary at London fashion week for his street style page.
It was day 1 at London fashion week and I was wearing boots, trousers and bag all by Vivienne Westwood with my Zara coat. It was interesting to have other people taking my picture for a change and I must say I was very flattered when I got asked.

Bone rings - Beyonce style

Hi guys,

Today sharing with you some pictures of some of my latest rings!
Wow, totally inspired by Beyonce, I think I got a bit excited with those bone rings and I could not resist buying just one of them!

I came across them a while back, whilst browsing through some American websites, as soon as I saw them, I knew they would be really cool, so I decided to buy 2 of them because I wasn't very sure of the sizing and how they would really be in real life. Anyways, when I received them after customs VAT and all that, I was SO pleased. They were really amazing and worth the hassle.
London fashion week came along and so I decided to wear them there, I received so many compliments and loads of people took pictures of my hand.

And then...
I just could not resit, I had to buy the other 2 (which were the last ones they had in stock!) to complete my hand.

My single lady hand, as I am calling it.





Inspired by....

Beyonce cyborg hand


Delfina Delettrez hand cuff

Both of them beautiful and expensive inspirations, I think mine is just as I eye catching though.
What do you think?

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I'm sorry the blog has been quiet for the last few days, I have just have had no time lately, I have been so busy but I just wanted to say that the blog has not been forgotten at all, just going a bit slower, bare with me.

See you soon.

 THE FANTASY COLLECTION BY GAURI AND NAINIKA PRESENTED BY LAKMÉ AT THE GRAND FINALE OF THE LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2011 SEASON
WAS A SENSATIONAL END TO THE EVENT

March 15, 2011, Mumbai: It was the most eagerly awaited event which ended the vibrant and busy Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2011 season. The Grand Finale show featuring designers Gauri and Nainika renowned for their stunning creations was presented by Lakmé at a starry elegant extravagant evening.
The Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Hotel was turned into a veritable Fantasyland as it came alive with butterflies and birds cutouts suspended from the ceiling. The backdrop of trees and snaking vines around the arched entry of the ramp along with the throbbing strobe lights set the scene for the fantastic show.
To the strains of the ABBA classic “I have a Dream”, Amrit Maghera descended from the ceiling reclining on a sliver of a new moon to open the opulent fashion presentation.
Gauri and Nainika the designing duo known for their glamorous Red Carpet collections dazzled the audience with 31 creations inspired by the colour cosmetic line Fantasy by Lakmé.
With stunning eye-catching creations and selection of elegant fabrics, colours, construction and silhouettes, the creative pair showed a breathtaking line of gorgeous evening wear with form fitting bodices that reflected the many moods of a woman. Unbelievable metres of diaphanous tulle, silk and French lace moulded with horse hair and can-can gave the outfits a surreal look. 
The five looks from the Fantasy collection by Lakmé which were created to flatter the beauty of women for the Summer/Resort 2011 season, started with the Sugar Plum Fairy in shades of pink, followed by the Snow Queen in rainbow hues, The Cloud Princess surrounded by blues and greens, The Wandering Butterfly who is nature’s child and finally Goddess of Gold surrounded by gold as she shimmers and shines.
Using the five looks Gauri and Nainika creatively combined their styling and presented cocktail dresses with spiraling drapes and textures in pastel shades of white, blue, green, pink and yellow. One shoulder lace ensembles, cocktail draped and frilled creations, taffeta pencil dresses, mermaid lace and tulle ensemble and the three final magnificent ball gowns in lace and satin would have been the envy of every queen and princess in the world. 

Megan and Carol - the dancers on stilts - thrilled the audience at the beginning, middle and end of the show with energetic numbers and ended with a performance of Swan Lake performed on the stilts that evoked a thunderous applause from the audience.
The Grand Finale was the entry of Lakmé’s six beautiful faces to the strains of “Over the Rainbow”. Amrit Maghera in a white rose gown, Shraddha Kapoor wore a net and silk dress, Lisa Haydon dressed in a white willpower petal mini, Vipasha Agarwal glided in a white gown, Indrani Dasgupta gorgeous in a mini and the new face of Lakmé, Liza Golden in a net and silk version.
It was a magnificent end to a fantastic Summer/Resort 2011 Lakmé Fashion Week as the fabulous Grand Finale by Gauri and Nainika inspired by Lakmé’s Fantasy Look will be the talk of the town for weeks.

The Multi Marine collection had nautical marine prints with shimmering solids and lace, sequins sheeting, foiling and rhinestones that added to the exotic appeal of the collection. Here it was magnificent net gowns, sequined sheaths in green and red, multicoloured twinkling saris with undersea flora embroidery, a red sheeting mini topped with a printed kaftan and ended with a printed embroidered bridal mermaid style lehenga, choli and veil.
The X-ray Marine Look showed bold black and white graphic prints with crystals, stones and large splashes of pleating for that ideal cocktail wear option. Here the two colours were given a more lavish treatment as black will power lace sheath, white gown with embroidered bodice, tasseled pallav saris and ruffled sari blouses were a sensational line for night time glamour.
