Elevation: Personal Fashion

Image by Hrishikesh Vimadalal 

Power that you feel inside when you know you are good and you got to being there by being good to yourself and to the people around you. Your body thanks you and so does your soul. Be blessed that you've reached higher grounds by taking the untravelled path. Rebellion doesn't necessarily mean destruction. It's not been easy at all but this is what nirvana feels like when you are still alive.

Golden Boy: Street Fashion

He asked me to take a picture of him. I told him only if he showed me his teeth. 

Teeth bling is pretty common in India, BTW. Don't really need to be rich to have gold teeth. But you do need to be a great sport to show them off to a complete stranger.

Hare Krishna: Personal Fashion



Images by Hrishikesh Vimadalal 

There is a very earthen feel to Payal Khandhwala's designs and I discovered her label on my recent trip to India. I bought this dress because it instantly made me feel like a glamorous saint and hence the inspiration to this shoot. We know that every outfit we wear evokes a feeling inside us. This one makes you feel peaceful. How insanely cool of a designer do you need to be to design outfits that make the wearer feel peaceful? It's just amazing. 

The shoes are one of my favorite finds from a Fashion Night Out in NYC a year ago. They are some russian scarf boots I bought from this traveling shop on wheels called the Styleliner which sells carefully curated limited edition items that their owner Joey Wolffer finds from around the world. Trust me when I say that when you actually visit the van/ shop you will want everything in there. It's that good! 

 Hope all of you had a great weekend. 

As for me all I have to say is Ohmmm.

Across the Zebra Crossing: Street Fashion

Images by Prutha Raithatha 

While roaming the streets of London one day with my cousin, we bumped into this fantastic lady. I saw her across the street from me and knew I had to stop her for some pictures. So when the walk sign came on, I stayed on my side and waited for her to cross over. Love the grunge look. And I like the idea of yellow instead of red plaid. I want that coat!

The Dog Days Are Never Over: Travel

Images by Prutha Raithatha 

"Dogs on the Farm" series featuring Chandni the almost 1.5 year old farmer's daughter, 4 Puppies who's names I forgot, Shraddha in the brown, Chandni's mom in the pink saree, Alison in the green and Rafiquee the big Dog. 

My favorites are when Chandni is showing the puppy an iphone and the last photo when she is holding her puppy like Shraddha is holding her dog Rafiquee.
