The Self-Rescuing Princess ft. Kazo

Hello Chicas,

When I think about my childhood memories, the sweetest one which always strike my mind is that of me being in awe of the fairy tales told by my grandfather. I certainly do not remember the story line now, but I can faintly recall the vivid images of these fairies I use to form in my tiny head back then. Like any other 90's kid, I grew up watching Disney movies which have been all about adhering to traditional gender roles. A typical plot would be a princess in trouble rescued by a prince and thereafter living happily together.

Fast forward to the 21st century, long gone are the Cinderellas and Auroras, who always depended on men to get them out of trouble. Instead, we have the Elsas and Mulans, who are subconsciously instilling in young girls the idea that you are capable enough to fight your own battles and create your own happy ending without the help of a manI have nothing against these fairy tales but with changing times the fairy tales have to change. I believe life is more than a slender waist and a beautiful gown. There aren’t just slender, white girls. There are girls like you and me. We are petite, thin and fat. We are white, black and brown. I feel life is a book and we are our own characters and there is certainly no fun in waiting for a rescue team. Instead we all should work towards becoming fiercely independent women who can rescue themselves no matter how tough the situation is.

Coming to my today's self rescuing princess look, I'm wearing a gorgeous gown from the fall/winter 2017 collection of Kazo. Their theme for this year's autumn/winter collection is "La Fabia" which is am Italian term for fairy tale. Their entire range has an aura of romance, sensuality and past century nostalgia which lingers in Italy. It's a fusion of retro dandy chic with an incense of florals, geometric lines and complementing metal trims. I completely fell for the color of the gown which is in dusty pink. The beautiful pleats along with the metal trims made the gown look even more opulent and romantic. I have paired the maxi gown with an emerald green jacket which is quite an unusual color combination but it turned out to be a great one. Finished the look with winged eye liner and oxblood lips.

Project Melange

Hello Chicas,

Hope you all are doing good. I have been super busy these days, working on a few projects for my blog and juggling with numerous interviews for the upcoming summer internship. Speaking of summers, I'm having a really tough time shooting the outfits and I'm badly longing for a vacation in the hills. 

Recently for one of my college assignments, I had to create a Lookbook with the theme textile. Having not much traditional items in my closet to recreate the look, I thought of coming up with a fusion getup instead. While hunting for the outfits, I came across this mustard yellow dress from KAZO which I had bought last year, but never wore it as I found the length of the dress quite unflattering on my petite body. So, this time I thought of wearing the dress over pants and that's when one of my recent buys, a pair of printed palazzo pants came to the rescue. These ajrakh printed flared pants in navy complimented the mustard dress beautifully. For accessorizing, I went for a red bindi and a pair of pearl earrings which I purchased from an exhibition put up by the students of Sawansukha Jewellers Institiute. Furthermore, the maroon studded sling and black pumps added a touch of modern appeal to the look.

Transitional Weather Dressing

Hello Chicas,

So it's officially that time of the year when the weather seems to be going through an identity crisis. One day, it's hot and sunny while the next day we are subjected to cool breezy weather. As these early days of spring are turning out to be super unpredictable, it's time to gear up for the transitional weather dressing. Now is the perfect time to take out your short dresses for a spin and layering them with pieces from your winter wardrobe. And today I'll be talking about one such outfit which is perfect to wear during this transitional time.

On one such confused weather day, I wore a maroon bodycon dress which has this tie-up detailing on the neckline, this trend has been my favorite for quite some time now as I find it very sexy. The dress is in jersey fabric, making it light and airy. I have layered the dress with a beige shrug which has fringes on the hem. This shrug from KAZO has buttons on the shoulder and can be also worn as a top. I really loved the final outcome of mixing these two warm toned colors. Coming to accessories, I have gone all color coordinated this time with a pair of chunky high heels in cream and oxblood lips. 

So this is one way to mix and match different pieces from your wardrobe without having to compromise your winter wardrobe soon. My next post will also be on early spring weather but with bright pastels.

KAZO Autumn/Winter Collection 2016

Hello Chicas,

A few weeks back, I got the chance to attend the launch of autumn/winter collection of Kazo in Forum Mall, Kolkata. Their store in the Forum mall has been shifted to Forum courtyard with an entirely chic revamped look. It was a great experience meeting the other fashion bloggers of the city and reviewing the new range of Kazo. The event turned out to be a super fun with quirky video shoots, awesome makeup session and ended on a sweet note with yummy food.


KAZO is a young international brand that has made its way into the center of the fashion industry within a short span of time. The main asset of the collections is that it is highly affordable which enables an access to the latest designer wear, giving a chance to every woman to feel great in her skin, right to her soul.


Their fall collection consists of amazing warm toned colors ranging from mustard yellow to burnt orange. But the entire range in apricot shade totally stole the show. Comprising of ribbed coordinates and shirt dresses, they were the highlight of the entire collection. Apart from neutral colors, a lot of metallic hues were also present in the form of jacquard peplum tops and sheath dresses. Other on trend items like cold shoulder, lace up style, oversize dresses were also a part of their collection. They have even come up with an entire cocktail line comprising of beautiful evening gowns in colors like midnight blue and metallic beige. The store looked extremely peppy and attractive with the pop colors and shiny metallic garments. Apart from the trendy clothes, classy handbags in neutral colors were also the spotlight of their fall range.
