ROPOSO

I am the worst when it comes to shopping. All those who have ever gone out shopping with me always end up asking me, "Why the hell are you so angry?” I get red faced because of the following reasons- a) It looks good on the rack but not on me b) It's either out of stock or it isn't available in my size c) after a point, I get sick of trying clothes on. In short, I do not have patience for malls and stores. This is one reason why I have now resorted to online shopping- God's gift to humanity. 
I want to take this opportunity to introduce to you, ROPOSO, one of the most innovative online shopping websites I have ever come across.

"Roposo" is a play on the word "apropos", which means relevant."
(What a fun word!)



I made an account with the website to see how it works. It is a fully fledged social network. It allows you to make various lists (Just like you do in Pinterest) and add the products you like in accordance with your lists. 

This website has been developed solely for us ladies and only serves products that are the most relevant with respect to our taste needs, recommendations of people and the current trends. From clothing to lingerie, these guys stock everything under the sun. They have categories within categories (E.g. they have around 700 tops and 14 categories within this section only), making shopping easier for you.


 They have partnered with leading shopping websites like ASOS (one of my favorites), Koovs, Done by None, Flipkart, Jabong , Nineteen etc and the products on their website are handpicked.

Roposo has made shopping easier and fun. Also, they‘re hiring. So if you’re into coding or you're a fashion student and looking for a job, you can contact them!

The Return, by Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld has always been my inspiration. My love for his work is one of the very reasons why I started this blog in the first place.
Recently, Chanel released a short film directed by Karl Lagerfeld to celebrate their latest Metier d'Art fashion show in Dallas. It is called "The Return". I absolutely loved it. Check it out-

MINIMAL

When I go out, I usually like keeping it simple. Less IS more. Now that autumn is here, I finally tried my hand at layering. Since the dreadful summer months are over and it's pretty pleasant now, I can carry a jacket with me just in case it gets chilly. 
Another thing, my thunder thighs and school, both are becoming stressful by the day. I haven't stopped going for a run, though- I go every other day i.e once in a blue moon. I'm afraid, Readers. I don't want them to become thunderous. My bottom half, I mean. 


 Wearing- Tshirt: United Colors of Benetton; Denim Jacket: Mom's; Leather Pants: Zara; Ring: Youshine; Shoes: Next
 I have been looking for a few basic t shirts for quite some time. Basic tees serve an important function as a wardrobe staple and basic layering tool. Over time, you can also use them to experiment and try your hand at some cool DIYs. This jacket.. shirt was my mother's before I decided to slyly pinch it from her closet. Thankfully, one can layer their outfits in autumn and not sweat like a pig. SCORE!

PS- 'TIS MY BIRTHDAY MONTH. I'M TURNING 18 ON 13TH. e_e

Travel Diaries: Nainital

Wow hi, remember me? 
My absence from Bling Struck has been haunting me in my sleep. And I'm back! School obviously sucks and the only highlight of my day is morning football practice and hanging out wimma homies... that's all. It's my last year and my laziness is going to be the death of me. People around me are going batshit crazy because of how chilled out I am. I should take my last year very seriously if I want to get into the college of my dreams.. I know it. Sometimes, I laugh at my attitude towards.. er.. well, everything. I'm not having the time of my life at the moment.. I guess I'm not supposed to.

I can totally imagine ya'll laughing while reading this. S'okay. :] 

I recently escaped to the hills with my mum for a few days and had a splendid time. Here are some pictures-

  I hope you liked this post. :)

Allen Solly Lookbook Feature

This has long been overdue. I was supposed to tell you guys the moment I got it but I was so excited that I forgot to do the most important thing in the world! 
Recently (lol), I was featured in Allen Solly's Colour Lab lookbook. Remember this post? I went around strutting the lookbook for a while because it was my first printed feature. I was the youngest one on it (hehe). But now that I am over that phase, I am ready to share it with you guys. Most of you would have already seen it, courtesy: my tweets. But... TA-DAAAA. :D 

 I hope you like these! Also, thank you so much for reading and commenting! Much appreciated. :)

MAXI


                     Aztec Maxi dress; Top: Mom's; Hat: Nainital'10; Wedges: GK, M-Block

Here I've paired my Aztec maxi with my mother's black tee and a white hat. Surprisingly the weather was very very pleasant in the afternoon and I was actually hoping that the the rain Gods pee on us for a bit- I wouldn't have minded that (sadly that did not happen). I live in a tropical country and It's effin hot. We need it. *sigh*

AISHWARYA :)

Ps- Allen Solly's lookbook will be out soon. I will be posting all the deets here once it is out.
