Maxi : Global Desi | All Accessories : Vaishali’s personal collection
I sit here writing this post, reflecting on the week gone by and heave a huge sigh of relief, thankful for the mini break. I have two days to unwind, refresh and get ready to fall back into the vicious cycle all over again. Well, corporate life can be stressful, but what keeps me going is working in an organization that introduces me to such intelligent, diverse and interesting people from all over the country. There is something to learn and imbibe from each one of them and I truly enjoy this privilege.
As you can probably tell, today is a post featuring someone special on the blog. Meet Vaishali, my ex-manager at Google and one of the most charming ladies around. I haven’t done a feature post in a while, but get ready to see a whole lot of that on the blog going forward. I really think featuring different people, with their unique sensibilities of style will add a lot more character to a personal style blog and hopefully provide more variety for people who follow me.
A few weeks ago when I was planning posts for the blog and thinking of featuring some bohemian looks, which is something I’ve been really enjoying off late, I instinctively thought of Vaishali. With the long hair, the rustic anklet she always wears, and her love for all things print (which I got a glimpse of when I walked into her room the other day), she’s effotlessly boho, without even knowing it.
When I asked her if she would be interested in featuring on my blog, she was all gung ho, which made this super easy, not to mention a lot of fun. Now, I was going for a bohemian theme and turns out that Vaishali is quite a boho at heart and has so many amazing pieces in her wardrobe, that we ended up shooting not one, not two but three whole looks with her. They are all completely different looks and we had an absolute ball shooting as she turns out be a natural in front of the camera! Except when she’s asked to keep a serious face, and no, she just can’t do that 😉
Over the weekend, starting from today I’ll share the 3 looks we shot together so stay tuned and come back for more tomorrow! Coming to today’s post, and probably my favorite one, features this gorgeous maxi dress from Global Desi which is a fabulous statement piece to own. It is such a riot of colors, and quite edgy with two slits in the front and a halter back which is extremely flattering and Vaish does complete justice to it! I can imagine this to be the perfect vacation dress, walking by the beach, waiting for the sunset! Aaaah, I could do with a vacation!
Both Vaishali and I like to keep things simple but this dress calls for some fun accessorizing! So we went for a gold theme, adding these gorgeous gold drop earrings. a statement ring in turquoise & gold and stacked bangles. Keeping the theme intact, we chose gold thong sandals to finish off this simple yet edgy look.
When it comes to bohemian clothing, what really stands out for me are the flowy maxi dresses and skirts. Be it in plain bold colors or statement making printed ones – they are all so edgy and fun, not to forget comfortable. A perfect bohemian look for me is loose flowy clothes, with a mish mash of accessories thrown in to create a messy yet put together look. These are just right for summers, but given our weather, can literally be worn throughout the year.
Global Desi is one of the few brands in India that offer a lot of bohemian clothing with an Indian touch. You’ll find lots of tribal prints in bright, bold colors on loose kurtas, long dresses, maxi skirts and more. It’s one of those brands that are perfect for girls who like to experiment yet keep it simple. Especially with the sale season in full bloom, go add some color to your wardrobe!
Come back for more tomorrow and hope you enjoyed reading this post! Have a fabulous weekend y’all!
