Playlife Sale Mumbai

Playlife Sale Mumbai

Now I realized that I have more reasons to fall in love with Monsoon and it’s not just the weather and the whiff of cold breeze or  the smell of rain that gets me by this mucky monsoon;  it’s the Shopping Sprees!

It’s raining sales in the city that keep me upbeat too! Yup. The best brands and even those which you’d just give a nod otherwise are oh so affordable in June-July-August! If you are shopping for a wedding, your own or one in your family or better still just shopping for pleasure like me, here are a few sales you don’t wanna miss.

Spot da Sales

Playlife from Bennetton at Mega Mall, Bandra is where you can grab some great deals on trousers, shoes, tops, dresses and much more. Their chic and classy styles are a rare combination and a must have for those who prefer a somewhat distinct taste from the rest. Now shoes for ladies are all laid out beautifully at Nine West; the strappy ones and the sassy ones, the flats and the kitten heels, wedges and peep toes; go get your pretty pair!

Indian stuff

Pramanik Sale Mumbai

Looking for some traditional stuff? The Pramanik sale at Dadar and Matunga is where you want to be at before the cool stuff goes away. Queens at Marine Lines, Kala Niketan at Juhu are other saree and traditional Indian clothing stores that pull the crowd this season.

Go grab it!

So now that you have yet another reason to rejoice in the rain; get in your comfy rainy gear, pack your credit card, cash, mobile, keys and your pooch and zoom off to the sales in the city because that’s where it’s all happening baby!

Last but not the least the Not just jeans lady would recommend that you sweep the stores clean but make sure you get home bags fulla stuff and mind you not just jeans!

 

Why DITCH DENIMS! June 24, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Gorgeous Girlie @ 4:56 am

Bright Yellow Kurti

Bright Yellow Kurti

Yes am sure you are wondering why should you get out of those evergreen oh- so -comfy pair of denims. I say don’t. Infact am wearing my most comfortable pair as I write but do experiment. Do put on that short skirt every other day and prance around in that long flaired one. Feel free in that cotton jumpsuit or experiment with some churidars and kurtas (Indian outfit) or better still some cotton khakis or cargo pants, tracks, knee length dresses, dungris, wrap around skirts and much more.

And now that it’s monsoon season, all the more reason to ditch your denims and get into comfortable clothes that keep you warm. Bring out those strappy dresses, sleeve less tops, ankle length or 3/4th pants so you can wade through waters easily. Those cropped pants to keep you looking uber cool yet are functional to the core. Bright Kurtis or Kurtas in yellow, pink, lime green will brighten up the rainy days and how!

 

Caught in the DENIM TRAP? Check for symptoms. June 20, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Gorgeous Girlie @ 12:53 pm

Don’t get me wrong. There is no big deal if you are a girl in love with your jeans but my point is we are the privileged gender who has more choices, a variety of outfits we can don; so why get stuck in the denim trap? Here is a quick checklist to see if you are  a DENIM DAMSEL (Doing too much Denims)

Are you a DENIM DAMSEL?

1- You are wearing denims today

2-     You are sure you are going to wear them tomorrow too

3-     You go party in denims with a tee

4-     You jog in denims

5-     You sleep in denims

6-     You work in denims

7-     You shop in denims

8-     You pack off denims for vacations with different tees

9-    Your shopping list consists of denims and more denims

10- You buy denims from all over the world not because they are better in fit and quality but because that’s all you wear

So my dear girl, if you said yeah to more than 3; welcome to world of blues and denims; where everthing is blue below the waist; sometimes in another color but mostly different shades of blue characterize your bottoms. It’s denim all the way for you. It’s denims in summer, raining denims in monsoon and denims keeping you warm in winter. You love denims. You will never leave them. You’d kill for them. You’d do anything. You scream if you don’t find them. You feel they are such an integral part of you; something like spectacles or a watch. It’s your second skin.

 

Why I created “Not just jeans”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Gorgeous Girlie @ 12:04 pm

Why I started Not just jeans? Not because Iam bored and I have not just enough topics to write but here is what it is.

Ermm. Because most girls/women get complacent, comfy, cozy in their Jeans to experiment with something more elegant, exciting and interesting ! Yes. It’s that simple. Get out of your jeans for godsake and get into a bit more feminine, flirty and fun outfit that will add a spark to your day. Iam going to write about 365 days of no-jeans outfits so you too can look at yourself in the mirror wearing something other than a jeans and tee (not like its a crime to wear one) but its good to try new things, break the mould, feel new. Isn’t it?
