#SummerStyle with Arya Trinkets & Threads

// Clutch – Arya Trinkets & Threads //

Hope you all are having a great summer! I’ve been enjoying the California sunshine and my new home here in Sonoma. Since moving to Cali, I’ve noticed a few things about myself and fashion style. Honestly, I’ve been in a bit of a style rut these past few months. As a fashion blogger, I am always writing about trying new things and experimenting. Yet, I noticed from my Instagram feed that most of my looks have the same type of style and feel. The main reasons are that I gravitate to a lot of floral prints and coral / pink colors. After a while (and a closet full of flower prints!), I wanted to make a change.  My first experiment was styling a date night outfit.  I wanted something that was in trend, easy to wear, and different from what I normally wear – but still reflected my style philosophy. When I started Social and Style, I wanted to create a platform that reflected my values, passion, and South Asian heritage. Personally, I love adding South Asian touches to my outfits. For the date night look, I wore my favorite jeans with a tank and added a choker to give the look a bit of edge. To finish the style, I selected a gold clutch from Arya Trinkets & Threads.  After seeing Arya Trinkets & Threads on Etsy, I love how the brand derives inspiration from South Asian antique and contemporary pieces and injects their own little signature twist to it. Check out Arya Trinkets & Threads to see more of their fashion and accessories collection!

#DesignerSpotlight – Indian Fusion with Pooja Fashion Trends

Pooja Trends Social and Style 42

// Outfit by Pooja’s Fashion Trends//

Over the weekend, we went to one of our favorite wineries, Paradise Ridge, and the Zakhir Hussian concert in San Jose. Since I wanted to wear something that would be appropriate for both events, I picked this gorgeous custom fusion outfit from Pooja Fashion Trends for the evening. So many of you loved Pooja Fashion Trends Anarkali I wore a few months ago and asked to see more designs! What I love about Pooja Fashion Trends is that the designer and founder, Pooja, can create unique one of a kind outfits from designs you provide. For instance, I saw this statement Nikhil Thampi outfit on Shilpa Shetty and shared the photo with Pooja on WhatsApp. From there, Pooja helped me select the color and how to best design the outfit to fit my body type. The outfit arrived in a few weeks and is now one of my favorites! Thanks to Pooja’s creativity, I can wear the fusion dress / tunic for both Indian and American wedding this summer.
