AllyDiz: Street Fashion

Images by Prutha Raithatha

Bumped into these rad girls on the street and it was coolness with twice the attitude. Allysia [short hair] and Rydiz [long hair] are friends and business partners. The embellishment on their jackets is done by them and they sell these for a sweet deal. There is definitely never a lack of talent in NYC. You go girls!!

I Don't: Personal Fashion

Outfit: Thrifted; Shoes: Moonspoon Salon; Nose Ring: Ms. Fitz; Jewelry: Assorted

I do believe in magic. I know it will happen. I just hope that I never stoop to the levels of those fake relationships around me that try to justify their settling for someone less than perfect out of the fear of being alone for the rest of their lives. It’s pitiful. But then again, maybe they have done nothing in their lives to be proud of. They settled for a mediocre job, a mediocre marriage and hence a mediocre life. And they are happy with their overall mediocrity. Hey to each their own I say. Whatever floats their boat. But incase you're wondering, pushing yourself to the limits, believing in yourself and actually trying to be all you ever wanted to be feels pretty darn good. Good enough to know that you can’t expect any less from your relationship either. Because just like your life, it has to be the best it can be or else it wouldn’t be worth it at all.

I had to write that down, so I don’t forget. Hence the tattoos on both my arms, one saying, “I do” and the other, “I don’t”. Have to remember that both these are equally powerful statements. They both can make and break the person I choose to be.

PS: This is a fake wedding. I didn’t really get hitched people. It’s only a photo shoot.

PPS: Have to thank Ramsey for posing with me as a groom in this blistering cold!! Trust me when I say it was the hardest shoot I’ve ever done because of the cold and he was such a sport!!

PPPS: Everything above is my personal “current” opinion and in no ways supposed to be a prophecy of any kind. I say what I think is right for me for the moment. May not be right for you and you should consult with your doctor/shrink before using ;-)

W.i.P Gallery Opening: Event

Images by Prutha Raithatha

Mid November I was invited to the opening of W.i.P art gallery. W.I.P is a fully functioning art gallery space, outfitted with unique and multifunctional elements that seamlessly blend the nightlife experience with a visually stunning art space. The entrance to the gallery [which was in the basement] was covered in psychedelic art/ graffiti and I have to say I quite enjoyed the experience, hence sharing some pictures from the day. The gallery itself has a cool DJ desk and a fully functional bar, so it's basically like a night club where your are surrounded by real art for sale around you.The pic with the artist working on his painting is him actually painting on a huge canvas at the gallery in public.

Met some interested people at the opening. Like Marco Santaniello [the guy with Panda Eyes and Jeremy Scott Panda shoes] who is an amazing Pop artist and Matthew Anderson [in the cool Black Glasses] who is a stylist for BCBG Max Azria and Fashion Contributor to 360 Magazine.

I had a fun time and I think I want to use this space for a shoot someday ;-)

Pin Up Girls: For Vogue India

This is my latest post for Vogue India

I am obsessed with anything unconventional used as a raw material to create fashion. We have seen some variations of safety pins being used as a way to embellish an outfit or a jacket like Moschino did about 2-3 years ago. But I recently spotted two very interesting and amazing ways in which safety pins were used to jazz up a chunky necklace. And jazz it utterly did. The first necklace is no brand no name piece from Korea, which cost under $50, and the second one is a Tom Binn necklace, which probably costs around $1000. Either ways, I think it’s a super cool way to give your pretty diamond/ beaded necklace a punk rock edge. Rather rebellious a stunt I must way. 

I spotted this girl at 2 different times with the same necklace worn with different outfits and it looked fantastic both the times.

As worn by Sarah Easley.

Bondage Anyone?: Street Fashion

Image by Prutha Raithatha

I cannot get over the hotness of this girl's leather pants. Slightly S&M, I know, but who the hell cares. She made them herself [is a designer] and I took her card so I could get myself a pair and then ofcourse the most responsible thing happened, I lost her card. She styled it perfectly too, with her semi-girly yet utterly masculine shirt. Someone please find me a pair of these pants!!

BTW, I have been posting a lot of dirt and juice to my twitter and facebook pages if you guys would like to know. BTW, did you guys check out the Pre-Fall Chanel show influenced by Bombay. It's BEYOND!!

The Dog Days are Over: Personal Fashion

Images by Jackie Russo

Shorts: Alexander Wang; Striped Tee: Club Monaco; Blue tee: Versace for H&M; Shoes: Irregular Choices

This weekend has been one of those where you didn't expect anything to happen, but a lot ends up happening and after it's done you think to yourself, "Damn, I did not see that coming". hehe.. In a good way.

I love these A.Wang shorts. Wear them everywhere. And my striped hole-ly tee is proving to be my favorite layer in the winter. The tee is one of my grabs from the Versace for H&M collections. Although from the men's section. I liked it better.

Watched a movie called "House of Pleasure" today. Pretty intense I have to say. Has me wondering about the vulnerability of the human heart that will never stop wanting to fall in love and the horror that some psychotic minds can inflict on themselves and others. Either ways anything that gets me thinking is worth it I say.

Hope you had a great weekend too lovers.
