July is my favourite month of the year. It's my birth month after all.
And I get spoilt rotten every year by family and loved ones and I am looking forward to my special day this year too. I will also be travelling home to be with my parents and also, consult my dentist for my braces. A well earned holiday for sure.
If you have noticed, I love white. But recently, I am moving to exploring pastels and other colours as well. This powder blue dreamy dress is my July dress from onlyurs.com. And, I love it. I have teamed it up with white shoes from onlyurs.com. The rains have come to Delhi and while things can get muddy and dull, my pastel blue dress with snowflake embroidery in white lifts my mood and makes me feel like a princess. Thank you onlyurs.com. Here's looking forward to my special day. Cheers!
How do people spend their birthdays, I wonder! My last birthday was perfect with the right company, work and a festive celebration of an event.
It all started with a long drive to a lovely spot midway to Dimapur from Kohima, with my sisters, brother and a bunch of dear friends. We then spent the first half of the day busy shooting for a lookbook for my favourite designer brand péro by Aneeth Arora.
Next stop, lunch.
Yummy Naga style food at Chåpru - fried duck, chicken curry, smoked fried beef, smoked pork in bamboo shoot, hot spicy green chilly chutney, fish chutney with kind chilly, rice, boiled veggies and bamboo shoot gravy to top it all.
After lunch, it was time to dress up all fancy for the Nagaland Anime Junkies' second edition of Cosplay in Kohima. I didn't have a character in mind. Nor did my sister Lulu. We just tried out our new wigs with our cutesy outfits and we were set for the celebrations at the Heritage.
With my sisters, Lulu and Mercy.
My big brother drove us there.
Busy updating my instagram.
My birthday lunch feast.
Anu PD's quirky but elegant pieces are always so much fun to style and wear. So when I got an invitation to the Zoya and Anu PD event at the Zoya Store in GK M Block Market Delhi, I was excited.
It was a lovely event with some gloriously beautiful pieces of jewellery by Zoya on display and we all got to try out a few pieces. There were fun contests for styling Anu PD's versatile pieces with Zoya diamonds and precious gems from their collections - Rajputana, Lace, Awadh, Banaras, Fire etc.
There was an energetic dance performance and I got to shake a leg too followed by many tasty tidbits doing the rounds washed down by a few glasses of hot apple cider. My afternoon was dazzling indeed.
I stayed in a cute little hotel with a gorgeous garden by the lake and had a fabulous stay before I travelled on to Jodhpur.
A sheer cotton kurta in bright yellow and a silk patch skirt and tie-dye scarf in green on my head. Total cost: 1000 bucks.
Here, I'm wearing my favourite flea market bought lace top with my colourful skirt from Jaipur, bata shoes for comfy walks and headband from forever21.
