Well, at the onset DSB decided on the Evening Look as the style challenge ...... Aanchal was our female model and Aabhaas, a dear friend, was our male model for our looks .... Infact Aabhaas modeled for our first post on DSB, and is one of the most fashionable photographer that we girls know !! ..... But for a change, instead of being behind the camera, he happily posed in front of it this time ..... big shout out to him .... thanks Aabhaas !!!! .... Aanchal too switched her role from being our co blogger to being our merry guinea pig :) ..... Dimpy being the shopaholic that she is, volunteered to do the hectic window shopping for our look .... and Shima chronicled all the madness that we had to complete in 2 hours flat !! .... The fantastic team from Crosshairs PR gave us our challenge sheet of competing brands and other rules and regulations, and off we went to raid the stores !!


Evening Look : 

A winter evening look in Delhi means being covered from head to toe !! .... Though we do not get snow here, Delhi winters are deadly as we all know ..... therefore boots, jackets and warm clothing was the order of the day .... Thankfully all the participating brands had already switched to Winter Essentials in their stores .... problem was that everything caught our eye and the store peeps were doing an excellent job in selling their wares to us ... haha !! .... Finally we decided on basic Black for both Aanchal and Aabhaas !!


The It Item :

It is easiest to style a look if you zero in on your "It" item of clothing .... or "it" accessory or shoes or bag .... Just pick one stylish item and make it your star ..... build the entire look around it !! .... In our case, it was a fabulous long coat from Label Ritu Kumar , made of Jamawar patches that caught our eye instantly !! ..... Jamawar is actually a shawl made in Kashmir .... "Jama" means robe and "war" means yard .... as in a yard of robe .... It is mostly made of geometrical, floral and paisley motifs and was the perfect foil to an all black look as you can see ! ..... It is fun to wear our heritage in such a modern way, and during the presentation on the ramp, judges Anupama and Bhumika loved the idea of including one's Indian ness in contemporary western high street wear :)


The Styling :

For Aanchal's look which we completed first, we therefore picked up a peplum black sleeveless top from Bebe India , a black knit maxi skirt from BYSI India , and a pair of black knee high boots from Aldo Shoes India ...... To this we added a yellow flower clip, neon skull collar tips and an evil eye cocktail ring from House of Blondie ...... Our choice of evening bag was a Mustard yellow sling bag from Label Ritu Kumar .

For Aabhaas's look, we decided on a head to toe look from Zara India ..... A black Structured Trouser, a black Structured shirt, a black belt, a black Structured long coat with zipper, and a pair of black leather Ankle Boot ..... We accessorised the all black look with a colourful Ethnic Scarf with paisleys to match Aanchal's Jamawar coat , a Maroon felt fedora hat and a pair of Black leather gloves.


The Make Up :

We decided on natural soft curls for Aanchal with a retro look ..... Winged Black eyeliner and red lipstick .... against an all black outfit, it was the perfect evening look and Aanchal carried it off beautifully !! ..... Do check out the contest pics :)

The best part of participating in such Bloggers Meet is not the prize, thats incidental !! .... The best part is certainly the chance to interact with established Fashion Gurus and getting mentored by them .... Designer Anupama Dayal has always been an inspiration to us because of her inherently Indian chic that she brings to her collections and her love of floral motifs and accessories in the way she styles her looks ..... Just have a look at this stunning styling from her Spring Summer 2014 collection called "Gulaabi" ..... we just love the tiny pom poms and flower power !!

DLF Promenade has taken an excellent initiative in organising Fashion Bloggers Meets in the capital .... and we thoroughly enjoy getting to see and style the seasonal trends from their stores ..... It is truly one of the best malls for shopping and entertainment in India, don't you think ? .... Hope you liked our post, and many thanks for the millions of good wishes and congratulatory messages that you our dear readers sent us on our FB page ..... we are touched !! .... Until next time :)
