A Thing Called Love

Last weekend was quite epic for Bangalore music lovers.On Friday evening Above and Beyond played in the city for the second time and NH7 Weekender was over Saturday and Sunday - with lots and lots of artists and stages for all kinds of music genres. I made it to the concert on Friday, but couldn't go for NH7( really bummed that I missed out on The Raghu Dixit Project , Kailasa, Papon and the East India Company and many many more)

Bangalore's edm scene has been exploding - just this year we've had Tiesto, Hardwell , Swedish House Mafia, Paul Van Dyk and Fedde leGrand all perform in the city (the last two were at Surnburn Bangalore) . And popular opinion is that the Above and Beyond concert at Jayamahal last year has been the best so far.  So expectations were quite high for their second stint in the city. 

The extremely talented Anoop Nagendra shot these before I left for the concert. 


Denim Jacket : Old Navy; Neon Tank : Vero Moda; Necklace : Colaba Causeway, Mumbai

Here are some pictures from the concert itself :

With all the concerts coming up (Steve Aoki at Sound Awake this weekend, and Avicii the weekend after that ) , here are a couple of concert wardrobe do's and don'ts :

  1. Wear comfortable and sturdy footwear : The last thing you want getting in your way is a broken chappal  or a really bad shoe-bite.
  2. Carry a light sling bag : Make sure you have something just for your essentials; it is a pain to lug around a heavy bag at a concert.
  3.  Don't wear something that can't get wet/ dirty/soiled : Concerts are full of lots of mud, people spilling their drinks everywhere and if there's rain, lots of slush. Don't wear something that will get totally ruined after one wear at a concert ( believe me, I'm speaking out of experience)
Here's to lots more music in Bangalore :)

(The Angels wanna wear my) Red Shoes

Seems like Costello wrote the song just for my shoes ;) 

Heels- Zara; Bag- Forever New
Dress and Black Tights- Forever 21; 
I wore these killer heels in some killer Bangalore weather . Chillier weather usually means being able to wear black tights when out and about in the city, even in the day. And I usually pair them with dresses which are a tad too short to be worn on their own (applies to skirts too)

Lace seems to be everywhere these days, but I bought the dress a while back (three years ago) on a trip to Thailand - and it was a steal!

Sunglasses- Forever New

Hair Band- Ayeesha

Watch- Fossil

Looking forward to the cooler months of the year.

Fifty Shades of Grey

The name of the post got your attention didn't it?  I read the first hundred pages of the book, and found it to be a sexist, misogynistic piece of junk, but I couldn't think of a better descriptor for Bangalore evenings in November.  The evenings and  early mornings are getting chilly, and it was nice to step out and enjoy the weather in an all grey ensemble.


I've never given monochrome a shot, but i ended up loving the look, and will surely experiment with it more often. The pink clutch added a much needed pop of colour.

A big big thank you to Anoop Nagendra for the photographs, you can check out some of  his work here : http://bit.ly/1gMvdRc
