#WeddingWear – Trend spotting – Floral Prints by Mitan Ghosh

Social and Style Mitan Ghosh Collaboration Indian Saree Floral Print

//Saree by designer Mitan Ghosh//

If you follow me on Snapchat (Username: SocialandStyle), you know I had a little truth session yesterday. Lately it’s been tough to keep up with blogging while managing work, wedding planning, and staying in touch with family and friends. I was even thinking of putting the blog on hold while I recharged and felt like I had more time. Then I woke up yesterday morning to find  I had been featured on Washingtonian Magazine’s “35 DC Fashion and Style Instagram Feeds You Should Follow Right Now“! “Having started her blog to share her South Asian fashion, there’s lots of inspiration in this Instagram account—including what to wear to an Indian wedding,” I am so proud to share my love for South Asian culture and it was such an honor to be included among such talented women. It’s moments like these, and your messages, emails, and comments that keep me to keep going. Thank you. I am motivated more than ever to keep the blog going and create content that you hopefully will love!

#DesignerSpotlight – Hookum Design Studio & Giveaway – Part 2!

Hookum Design Studio Collaboration  with Social and Style – Indian Inspired professional look 01

Whether it’s pairing jeans with bangles or kolhapuri sandals with a maxi dress – Indian touches can make an outfit feel special. Lately, I’ve been going to a lot of events after work (can’t wait to share them with you!). Working in a professional services firm, we tend to dress rather conservative with blazers, collared shirts, and muted colors. While attending an event in DC with fellow fashion blogger – Kavita from  Fashion Diaries by K, I was looking for an easy way to take my work outfit from day to evening. I turned to Hookum Design Studio to help style my look for part 2 of our collaboration. I paired my white shirt with pink and pearl jhumkas from the studio. I love how the jhumkas elevated this look and made the outfit standout! You too can add an Indian touch to your look with earnings from Hookum Design Studio by entering the contest below!

#WeddingWear – A Destination Wedding with Bazzzar.com!

10004

With summer around the corner, wedding season is here! With sangeets, mehndis, cocktails, ceremonies, and receptions – finding what to wear can be a challenge. With a destination wedding, it can be even tougher deciding what to wear and what to pack. The location, time of year, and events are all important factors. You want to wear something that is weather appropriate, easy to pack, and comfortable. While there are lots of places to shop from, personally I don’t want to wait 4-6 weeks for my outfit and pay a ton for shipping. Even when your outfit arrives, you still are unsure if it will fit right or if you will need alternations, which can get pricey. When I discovered Bazzzar.com, I loved their designs, selections, and 7-day shipping guarantee! I teamed up with Bazzzar.com to help you plan for your destination wedding this year.

Kicking of wedding season with Exclusively.In!

Wedding Season in the U.S. has kicked off and celebrations, festivities, and getting glammed up are all a part of the wedding fun. My first wedding of the year was for a family friend I’ve known for years. The Sangeet was beautiful and I was sure the Reception would be just as elegant. As I wondered what to wear, I thought first about comfort. My sister and family flew in from out of town and I wanted to wear something that I could watch (and chase) my 2-year old nephew in! Thankfully, I had the perfect outfit. I mentioned awhile back my experience shopping with Exclusively.In during their Diwali Tour. During the pop up shop, I found a coral pink anarkali suit, which I saved for a special occasion. Exclusively.In is one of my favorite places to shop. The online store has the hottest looks right off the runway from designers such as Payal Singhal, Joy Mitra, and Gaurav Gupta. Exclusively.In also has a great blend of high-end and affordable fashion, providing options that fit your budget. Check out the site and start your wedding season shopping today!
