Neon-sensicle: Personal Fashion

Images by NURBS

Dress: All Saints; Orange Belt: Club Monaco; Neon belt: Target

With soo much snow showered over NYC this winter it’s kinda hard to not get excited like a kid and play in it a couple of times.

Neons are inspiring me a bit too much right now. I swear I had super cool shoes with this outfit but seeing how the snow was 2 feet high, I had to give in to wearing boots to protect myself from dying. I really wish I owned transparent pink / neon rain boots that I could have worn instead!! That would just totally complete me. Is any shoe company listening to my bright ideas???

The last pic is the impression I left in the snow after I went on it face down…Lol.. For the first time in his life NURBS called me “crazy lady” today. And to make things worse during the entire course of our shoot today, he used the expression 3 times!!! I hope I don’t scare him

Hunt and Gather: Street Fashion, NYC

Images by Prutha Raithatha

Jacket: Ikebehar; Sweater: Ralph Lauren; Shoes/ Gloves/ Glasses: Salvatore Faragamo; Hat: Vintage

The only question I didn’t ask him was if he was single!!!

BTW, the green oxfords are a fav of mine. A few months ago I made a friend/ client of mine buy an identical color as a perfect addition to his otherwise conservative / normal wardrobe. It’s a great twist to the basic oxford.

Bernard James is a fashion and accessories designer and from his website I see we both went to Carnegie Mellon University. Great minds people, great minds!! lol

One: Personal Fashion

Velvet Jacket / Pants: Zara; Shirt: Cotton World; Shoes: NineWest; Clutch: Don’t remember [it’s atleast 10 years old]; Glasses: Versace

So DSM just turned 1. And it’s been a really freaking awesome ride so far. Publications in Magazines, newspapers, BBC website and now blogging for Vogue India. Everything has been super duper exciting!! I have to thank all you guys and my fantastic photographers who have gone along with my craziness all through this past year. Love you guys for letting me be me!!

The coming year will bring many more displays of ideas that my brains wipe up. I am trying to concentrate on doing more quality work than quantity cause I truly don’t want to put anything out there that I am not totally in love with. Besides that if there is anything you guys would like to see me do, have ideas for photo shoots, locations, themes, you are welcome to just email me or comment…and who knows, I may actually be able to pull it off ;-)

Wish everyone a great 2011 !!

I Want a Girl with Pink Lips and a LONGGG Jacket: NYC Street Fashion

Images by Prutha Raithatha

It was love at first sight. Spotted that jacket walking towards me on a cold Sunday afternoon and I had to shot it. Stopped the lovely girls and ask for permission. Love the androgyny of the girl with the men’s shirt inside that very cool detailed jacket. But her beautiful soft face and the pink lips were a total contradiction and that’s perfect fashion to me.

Potty Head: Personal Fashion

Images by NURBS

Sweater, Harem leggings and Boots: All Saints

A friend sent me a forward one-day that ended with a very profound statement.
“You are only as strong as the coffee you drink.”
Think about the truth to that sentence people. Think really hard!!

BTW, I am obsessed with All Saints and it doesn’t help that it’s right below my apartment. It has a massive sale going on right now and I can’t tell you how much in debt I am already!! HELP!! [Donations are highly encouraged. Yes, that is the only kind of help I am looking for].

If you did like to follow DSM on Facebook just like the page.

Happy week!!

Beetle Leaves and Queens: Mumbai Street Fashion

Images by Prutha Raithatha

Salwar Kameez/ Outfit: Sobo, Mumbai; Sandals: Mahabaleshwer, India; Bag: Kasidos

Spotted Avni outside my favorite restaurant in Mumbai called Swati Snacks [Yes, I know, I am such a Gujju]. On my trip to India I had been looking all over for someone in a perfect traditional Indian outfit with cool details. Avni had it perfect to the T. I love the Mughal Queen face detail on her string belt. Also her cuff and bag are incredible.

Mostly Ghostly: Personal Fashion

Images by NURBS

Top: Rahul Mishra; Leather leggings: BCBG; Shoes; Dolce Vita; Leather Cuff: Mango; Ring: Popley [Mumbai]

You know how I love to experiment right? But sometimes these experiments backfire like a bitch slap on my butt and put me in my This shoot was one of them. Although the outcome is quite beyond my satisfaction, NURBS and I shot this on one of the coldest days of this winter and froze our asses off. We both were shaking the whole time while we were shooting these pics. After 45 mins in the cemetery and crazy wind chill with minus god-knows-how-many degrees, we both ran [imagine crippled people break dancing their way out of a burning building cause we were literally frozen and that’s how awkward our gait was] out of the cemetery and found the closest Dunkin Donuts 2 blocks away to shelter ourselves in. After we got in, we both stood at the counter for 5 mins but couldn’t order our drinks cause we couldn’t talk. Our teeth were chattering and we really did think we were going to die!!! [How ironic right? Being back from the cemetery and all…hehe]. After we were able to thaw ourselves a bit we spoke the words “Coffee” “Hot chocolate” and swore never to mess with nature again!!

Love this fantastic young Indian Designer Rahul Mishra’s work. The architectural lines and the graphic overlays of patterns through sheer material on this top are just fantastic. And these leather leggings are my everyday winter wear. Seriously. My friend's are fed up seeing them on me, but I loveeeee them!!
