Do's and Don't of Wearing Pink, DC fashion blogger, NYC fashion blogger, indian fashion blogger, 2018 fashion, nymannequin, power style, power style and social issues, blogger

Washington is a small town, and in a small town, people get creative. While in some small towns you might find a hundred different ways to bake a pie, in Washington you’ll find a hundred different ways to bake the truth. While truth as it exists today is a constructed narrative, so is your daily style. As a New Yorker in a city caught between preppy and afro-funk, every spring I look for edgier ways to wear the styles and colors everyone else is wearing. So this spring, I’m sharing my New Yorker’s edit for Do’s and Don’ts of Wearing PinkContinue reading

ANGELMAN SYNDROME COLLECTIONS PRESENTATION & CREATIVE ARTS EVENT

Runway for a Cause

The runway attracted international designers, fashion influencers, caregivers and advocates. We were all there to raise awareness for the Angelman syndrome. Why? The Angelman syndrome is a genetic disease so rare that it affects just 200,000 people per year in the U.S. While it requires lifelong care, the lack of awareness means it is often misdiagnosed as something else, like cerebral palsy or autism. Why now? Researchers believe because of its relationship to many other disorders, finding a cure for the Angemlan syndrome will lead to cures for similar disorders, like autism and cerebral palsy. Enter: international fashion philanthropy. Continue reading

HOW TO TRAVEL IN STYLE

Like fashion, travel is a privilege, not a right. Consulting a full length mirror shouldn’t be optional just because you’ll spend the next 12 hours of your life in a dark cabin. When the lights flick on you will be caught with your sweatpant drawer ensemble, and will continue in the footsteps of every forgettable traveler, ever. Just because travel is complicated  (from delays to detentions), dressing for aesthetics doesn’t have to be. Here are my 4 rules for “How to Travel in Style” (and comfort, always.)

KEEPING STORYTELLING ALIVE WITH COMCAST XFINITY

KEEPING STORYTELLING ALIVE WITH COMCAST XFINITYI am a first generation American who has been blessed to visit my parents’ home country of India twice in my lifetime.  While I often blog about the perfect Prada pump or styling myself for the opera, the truth is, my family comes from a place that is much more beautiful than any material thing.  Years of dreaming, believing, and working hard, has grown our roots in the USA strong but our roots from India much too far.

On my last trip to India, at the tender age of eighteen, I returned to the village of my grandfather’s farm in Gujarat.  As I walked through our generations-old corn grove, one hand touching the plants as they do in the movies, I heard stories I’ll never forget. Continue reading

WINTER TO SPRING #TRANSITIONFASHION AT THE CHERRY BLOSSOMS

WINTER TO SPRING TRANSITION FASHION AT THE CHERRY BLOSSOMS COVERSpring time in Washington, DC is about as fickle as Donald Trump’s position on abortion.  While there seems to no longer be a transition from an election year to a non-election year, at least we have transition fashion.  I mean, if I am going to spend a heated summer arguing about why women support candidates who are anti-women, I at least want my wardrobe to be cool and crisp.

NAUTICAL STYLE IN HAVRE DE GRACE

NAUTICAL STYLE IN HAVRE DE GRACE COVER

One of my favorite things about living in Washington, DC is the wonderful weekend getaways and day trips nearby that can fill up an entire season.  In just an hour or two, one can be on a local beach, in a fox village, or in a boating town.  This year  I promised myself I’d seek out new destinations, new experiences, and new perspectives in the same world.  Which brings us to Havre de Grace.
