The Numaish Winter Show, the much-awaited exhibition of India’s most promising designers, is set to take place on 19th December at Al Murooj Rotana, Dubai.

Silvense is a gorgeous range of contemporary jewelry. The pieces are minimalist, yet bold and follow funky, unexpected geometric designs that are altogether unique and very chic. Great news; you can shop their latest collection firsthand at the Numaish Winter Show!

I had a chat with the jewelry designer behind the brand, the very lovely Vrindaa Ashwani herself. Read on to see what she has in store for Numaish.

So I didn’t win the ‘Best Asian Blogger’ title, but am super flattered to be nominated among the top 5 ‚úĆ .¬†Congrats Lokesh Dharmani from the F by Lokesh blog, so very well deserved.

Thank-you Ahlan! Masala¬†for yet another fabulous #masalaawards2015 event, had so much fun!¬†Met one of my favorite Bollywood stars, Simi Garewal (she’s even lovelier in person!) and even had a quick chat with the stunning Jacqueline Fernandes backstage! Oh and that’s me giving away an award for best lounge in Dubai (congrats AKS Nights!).¬†

The Masala awards makes me feel like a celeb and loved getting a chance to dress up Desi (Indian). Will be posting an outfit post real soon, so stay tuned!

Eid Ul Fitr is the festive ending to a month-long devotional month of fasting on the Muslim calendar. With just over 2 weeks to go, it would be a good idea to start planning out the Eid wardrobe and avoid the maddening pre-Eid retail rush.

For¬†Eid, I love playing¬†ethnic dress-up. There’s something magical about traditional Indian attire. The bright clashes of color, the heavy embroidery and the majestic use of chiffon and silk add feminine grace to any silhouette. However, I for one do not get many opportunities to dress up completely ethnic. I prefer Indo-Western; the marriage of somber Western cuts with a spark of Indian fiesta can be carried off for other occasions beyond Eid, hence giving me more wear per buy.¬†Today’s post is a pictorial wishlist of Indo-Western outfits I¬†have shortlisted. Wishing I could own them all!
