IIJW 2015: My Day Out!

Hey lovely readers! ❤

Tonight I want to share my experience at the India International Jewellery Week 2015 with you guys 😀
I attended Day 2 of the IIJW at Grand Hyatt (Mumbai) and had a great time! This is how I looked!

I attended the show presented by the Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery (IIGJ) that showcased collections by Rahul Luthra, Cherry Sahni, Anushka Singhal and Rachna Gupta. Many designs caught my eye!

I was bewitched by Cherry Sahni’s exquisite collection! It was all about diamonds and TASSELS! It was amazing to see gems and pearls tied into tassels – so unique! B-)

The outfits were all denim! Denim and diamonds make an intriguing combination, don’t they? 😀

Aditi Arya, the ruling Miss India World was the showstopper for Cherry. She looked like a young goddess in an unconventional boho-chic denim bustier-style leotard and a sheer lace skirt, coupled with ultra high brown leather heels ^^’

After the show, I caught up with Cherry and her showstopper. Both ladies were gracious enough and the chat was effortless!

Aditi’s favourite thing about the collection was its perfectly harmonious blend of modern and traditional. Her denim-lace outfit definitely revealed both the chic coolness and grace that a women embodies, she felt.

As for Cherry, she couldn’t be happier about her showstopper! According to her, Aditi symbolises precisely what her collection puts forth – a globetrotter and a free spirit who is in touch with her roots.

This bag is pretty big in size (15 inches diagonally) with a subtle, elegant quilted design. The braided pipe-style strap looks stylish and the tassel detail on the zipper adds uniqueness.

I love the fact that it can transform into almost any kind of bag! 😀

It can work as a tote, as seen in my picture below.

I can hitch it up on my shoulder and use it hobo-style.

It also comes with a detachable long strap. So I use it as a sling bag also! 🙂

I have had this bag for 3 years now, and it has been very loyal to me! From important interviews to crazy parties, this bag of mine has seen it all 😀
