Twinning in Shoonya

We’ve never been the most “traditional” duo. We both love experimental pieces and something we can make our own. So stocking our wardrobe with the right kind of festive/occasion wear pieces has always been a struggle until we found Shoonya. We loved how they weave together traditional fabrics and contemporary workmanship  to create the perfect, oh so stylish concoction.  We’re so trilled to showcase some of their pieces and share how we styled them.

Fringe Fever:

Banarasi Dupattas with fringe detailing has almost never been heard of. Style it with a solid Kurta or pair with a jacket while draping it around your neck during winter to add oomph and warmth. Fashion and function can go together! who knew!?

Saree Love:

We love banarasi sarees but if you’re anything below 30 they tend to age you. We love the ones created by Shoonya because of their fun contemporary detailing and light feel. Stack your favorite oxidized necklaces and drape them over pants to keep things casual.

 

Turn up at the Soiree:

If you’ve been battling outfit ideas for the next family soiree or engagement party, look no further. Jazz up your salwar suits with these beautiful dupattas with gold embroidery. They also pair beautifully with a western monochrome ensemble.

 

Floral Power:

Add some romance and charm to your outfit with these banarasi dupattas with floral detailing. If you’re on the hunt for something absolutely unique, we recommend picking this up for sure.

Pastels for the win:

If you love pastels we definitely recommended picking up duppatas from Shoonya’s gelato collection. Colorful, fresh and yummy! What else can one ask for!?

 

Spilling the details:

All of their pieces are crafted with so much love and beautiful details. We couldn’t help but share some detail shots!

Food Review: Bombay Brasserie

Last month, on a sunny and cacophonous morning in the chaotic city, we found ourselves entering what seemed like an oasis of peace, calm and greenery. We could hardly believe our eyes or our ears when we entered the brasserie named after the city.  Once an old haunt, Bombay Brasserie, situated at Worli, was love at first sight. We could hardly wait to try out the food.  Keep on reading to know our thoughts. Continue reading

Food Review: Grandmama’s Café

From the minute we first entered Grandmama’s café on a quiet Saturday morning, we were in love. The smell of fresh coffee, the slow jazz music that seemed to have a strangely therapeutic effect on an otherwise noisy outdoors, the white brick walls with beautiful frames, the small windows and old fashioned lace curtains and the quaint and comfy sofas all seemed to have a mesmerising effect on us like we were actually in a comforting dream; or in a chic little café in Paris.
