Style By – Part 2
You can find the part 1 here.
16. Last buy :
Tod’s Loafers for my husband.
17. Next buy :
Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps or Nausikaba in Black Patent. I am trying to do a Shopping Ban until the end of October. Let us see if I last that long!
18. Would never wear :
Very high heels, Body Con Dresses, Mini Skirts (Just don’t have the body for it!)
19. Wardrobe you envy :
Admire a few. Envy – I can’t think of any.
1. A goodnight’s sleep does wonders. I am not a makeup person. The only exception is a good lipstick.
I cannot pull off red. Berry tones are my go to shades.
2. A simple blowout makes me shop less. I think a good haircut is a the best makeover you can give yourself.
21. Scent :
Very personal. I love the smell of jasmines, peonies, wood+vanilla, whiskey. My two go to scents for everyday use – Calvin Klein Beauty (Jasmine) and Marc Jacobs Honey.
I have my eye on Miss Dior and Gorgio Armani Si for some time next year. I would love to explore Frederic Malle. The price of their perfumes scares me. Some of them cost as much as pair of good shoes! When did good perfumes become such a luxury?!!
22. Ready in 5:
Quick Shower, Perfume, Moisturizer (with Sunscreen for Day), Lipstick.
23. Wellness :
Fix your sleep cycle and half your issues are solved. I am still struggling with this, but I am finally getting to a better place this year.
24. Music :
Old school, Blues, love Rappers who can write poetry. Saul Williams, M.I.A, Eminem (I have to preface by saying that I absolutely dislike Rap music that glorifies violence and calls women ‘names’)
25. Read :
Life has been on an ‘eternal hold’ kind of phase this year. I wish I could read more. There was a time I used to read at least 20 books an year. I would like to get back to that.
Can’t get enough of Von Gogh, Dali, Monet, Manet. We love to keep the walls white to display all the prints, sketches, kitschy pictures and everything beautiful we collected over the years. I love my clothes and everyday objects inspired by art – they give true meaning to Art Meets Function.
One of my favorite clicks at The Getty. Those brows, that hair and Pearls..
27. Interior :
Lived in, white / Neutral walls so that we can add more color via furniture. Artwork and prints on the wall, in door plants, as much less clutter as possible. We are yet to buy our home here. I can’t wait to see what we will do with it. Brown or White / Beige furniture with gold accents feels most relaxing to me.
28. Nightlife :
Love a single-malt and an effortless night at the clubs. We love movies in the park, and staying in and playing cards with friends.
29. Favorite City :
New York City. We visit almost every year and I love visiting all the museums and art galleries. The MET is my favorite. Just going around the city with friends gives me a high!
Just hanging at one of my favorite places..
30. Favorite shop :
Nordstrom Online – Most of my clothes come from here. I rarely go into the Nordstrom store, but when I do, it never disappoints. Net-A-Porter – Though I cannot afford most of the stuff on Net-A-Porter, I love to get my splurges from here. I get quite a few pieces from TheOutnet every year.
I wish I could shop more on ebay, but the shipping and return policies scare me!
