How We Styled It - Feature 1

This year, I kinda had a mission for my blog and I think I put it out clearly in words here. I am kinda excited to do more style posts now, more specifically on styling particular items in the closet, adapting different styles and so on. And then a blogger-collab feature I saw on J's blog completely inspired me. Why not get together with your blogger buddies and brainstorm ideas in styling a particular style/outfit. Voila! I am adapting this new feature on to the blog >> the How We Styled It Feature, people!

Today, Saumya (you have met her here) and I putting together styles for an all-white outfit. With spring at our doorsteps - well to be realistic, we do have some snow leftover STILL - it will soon be time that a crisp all-white outfit will be something to don with the gorgeous weather and floral landscape all around us! 

Thanks so much Saumya  for agreeing to this style experiment, you are a looking smashing hot in the all-white getup! Love the pop of color from the gorgeous bag, and that fur scarf is for sure need-of-the-hour. A white skirt and blazer definitely looks worth an investment.

Over to you gal...

There is something about this white Narciso Rodriguez blazer that keeps calling out to me, each time I am scouring through my coat closet in search of something white to wear. It's not that I have a closet full of  white toppers, but owning 4 white blazers, 1 white leather jacket and 6 white sweaters, I could call it a small collection.......duh !

Anyways, when my dear blogger-friend ASHWINI suggested an all-white outfit for our first blogger collaboration series, right away I knew this jacket was making it's way to the blog once again. What better  way to embark on this fashion journey, than to wear something pure as WHITE...

I picked out this fun and flirty skirt from forever 21 a while ago and it sure proves to be a perfect match with the blazer. Dressing up in all white could be uninteresting but with subtle infusion of prints,colors and textures- the skirt's lace bottom, the cat print top, the bag, the fur snood and the mirrored sunglasses as examples, one could break through that boredom. I kept my make including the lipstick soft , an ideal choice that falls in line with the aesthetics of an all-white outfit....

Well, talking about my inspiration for today's style collab comes from an afternoon playing dress-up in the closet. I have always been fascinated with monochrome outfits especially, the all-white one. It tends to look ghostly (!!) sometimes, but with right accessories it's one of the most easiest way to dress up chic!

White jeans and white tee were a no-brainer (in style blogger world) to put together and a little bit of tan color from accessories was right enough balance. 

Now for me, I am still reeling from the neon trend (which was so in last year and maybe still is..I keep seeing it in bit-and-pieces in the style mags) and so with a neon band and necklace I was all set to step out in my very own white-out outfit. And oh, with a lingering chill in the air, a trench is a must-have for the spring, no?

So, that's how two bloggers styled their own version of white-on-white. If we inspired you to your own version, we would be happy to know about it!

Lastly, if you would like to collab with me on this style feature, I would be delighted to get together with you. Do drop a line at:

Capital Fashion Blogger Meet

I met some lovely ladies and fellow fashion bloggers at CapFABB's third anniversary bash! CapFABB is a community of Fashion and Beauty bloggers based around the Washington, DC area including Virginia and Maryland.

I am so glad I attended this event. It was nicely done a a cocktail lounge - Dirty Martini - in DC, and and there was a special arm-party and jewelry counter setup by the gracious hosts Capwell + Co. Oh my! what fabulous bracelets, cuffs and bangles in striking colors, beads and metals. I hung out with a fellow Indian blogger - Saumya who writes and styles on her blog, Myriad Musings, and gorgeous DC-based bloggers Kesha and Sahra. It was so much fun to meet a like-minded bloggers and stylish ladies. There was some finger-licking good pick-me-ups and drinks flowing throughout the evening. 

Check out some fun moments and of course my Outfit of the Day - sequins top and fringe statement necklace and a pops of color from the scarlet red pumps and lip-color. I had hoped to wear a nice dress, but owing to the super-chilly weather and plus a long commute to the venue, I decided to go with something comfy and winter-appropriate. Hoping to see more of these blogger meets coming spring and summer and of course dress my best then!

Btw, special thanks to Saumya for the amazing outfit pics (we kinda did a mini outfit-shoot at the event)!
