Long Kurtas & Short Kurtis

Long Kurtas & Short Kurtis

It was regular rainy day in Mumbai when I had less work to do and was in mood to look all pretty, catch up with my girlfriends and just be! You know what I mean :)! I was leisurely walking down the Wodehouse road with an umbrella in one hand and my mobile in another when I looked at a pretty pink n white board that said “SUGAR”. A new store? What? When! I had to step in.

Spot it!

Nr. Colaba Post office, this store is in the interiors of Colaba, walking distance from Charagh Din Showroom. When did this come in? How did I not see this earlier? The name did it for me. It was a girly name. It was inviting and I had time on my hands. I started walking towards the store. I walked in. And I was mesmerized even more.

TOPSY-TURVY! All tops no pants. The place has a range of semi-casual, dressy, dainty tops with laces and pearls in pinks, peaches and whites. You know those dreamy outfits the Yashraj women are wearing on the ott farms, the lacey stuff, the feminine cuts, the free flowing fabrics. Get the drift?

An assortment of 20 designers stir up the recipe and make Sugar sweeter. Tops you can wear to dinners, dates, weddings of  mates et al.  Starting at Rs 1200/- I think you should consider their peasant tops and floral prints. They are particularly pretty and I haven’t seen them anywhere else yet. You know what I also like here? Their clutches, which were not the usual in your face, bling bling designs, they were classier and subtle. Your mom can carry them and so can you.  A lot of outfits can also be part of your trousseau if you are not a very fussy bride. So there you have it! Looks like Sugar is a store am heading back to very soon. Aaah. My birthday isn’t far away and the store is hop-skip-jump from home! 🙂 I could get my birthday outfit at Sugar and it will turn out to be SuperSweet!

Girl Gaze: Stuff I love! May 23, 2010


When Iam out and about, Iam doing a whole lot of window shopping and sometimes actually picking stuff too. So here’s some stuff I picked and some stuff I thought you’d like to take home. I did throw in a bit of pink as you’ll notice! Enjoy!

So this is where all my hair bands go and I do have a similar one in Lilac which I picked up from Pondicherry last year. Basically, now I have twin sisters on my dressing. Pretty no?

I simply love this one! It’s so adorable. You can tie it when you are wearing a long skirt or even over jeans and you are good to go. No hassles, no purses to manage, all it takes is some change, a few notes, slip in that debit/credit card and you are a girl on the go!

Denim + Pink = Girlie’s favorite combination!

Shop. Party. Work. Vacation! May 15, 2010

Now being a city girl and leading that beep-button-fb-twitter cappucino on the go life is not easy. Let me share what I’ve been upto since yesterday. Had a class for kids in the morning, left for Palladium to meet a friend, showed her around, got her all mall happy, picked up some magazines from Landmark (had many loyalty points accumulated, love the redeeming part), got the basic stationery from Staples, left for a meeting at iDiva readers meet at the Times of India (This was fun!) took a cab from Sobo to the burbs, reached home, grabbed a bite, exchanged a few words with my sisters, refreshed and changed and soon it was time to be at a friend’s cocktail party at Caprice in Juhu! Reunite with long lost lasses, chat about all girlystuff, get super happy, dance n sing and do all girly things, get yourself to get home and then get yourself to go to bed!

Day 2.

Wake up. Gobble down the scrambled egg, shove some apples down my throat, drink half cuppa tea and run off for a meeting at BKC. Head out to the Inorbit Mall at Vashi, do all the coverage of stores and events, shop a little (that can’t stop right. Spotted and bagged some pretty stuff from Accessorize! Log on to www.accessorize.com for some blissful moments) pester an auto rickshaw guy to get you to the station as you have 3 bags each in one hand and all of them have heavy girly machinery; get off, grab another cuppa coffee, some how get yourself to enter, sit and get comfy in the train; soak in the sweltering heat and return to CST. Head to Colaba, do banking, buy ferry tickets at Gateway and deal with a jerk whose trying to get too close; finally heave a sigh of relief that you will now go blog, email clients and your internet stuff. Land at the cybercafe only to find that it closed too early. Lucky, the next one down the road was open. After a hectic weekend, I await my vacation as the Monday blues are nowhere near me….

P.S. It may not sound all that crazy but in the sweltering heat of summer, you have no idea! But girly loves her work so she always has a smiling heart at the end of the day even if her brand new haircut may look like a mop and she will look all tired and dreary, its what inside that counts 🙂 Right ?
