Let’s start yet another post with a pondering thought! This time around, I was thinking, what is the one quality that appeals to me almost instantaneously in just about anything? What is the one word I would describe anything that has set my heart aflutter? This single and utmost simple word sets the benchmark for me about anything that is deserving of my appreciation. Pretty! Yes, pretty things intrigue me! Pretty things, I want to hold dear! This post seems only fitting to tell you about the two pretty things I recently came across.
Boy were my stars smiling on me when I found this pretty, peasant style, blush maxi dress by AND. Speaking of peasant, comfort takes the wheel again; but this time it is driving around chic and style! I love AND as a brand because they lend you an unforgettable impression through their outfits. Sharp silhouettes, soft hues helps you make the right kind of statement. Their sophisticated and stunning western wear range is the testimony to the accurate balance of contemporary style and classic charm that only AND can create. This pretty maxi dress creation is evident of every bit of these amazing qualities. This blush coloured georgette dress has crochet lace trim at the neckline, thin adjustable straps and light floral embroidery on the front, which makes for very pretty details on a summery dress like this. The tiered flare gather details and straps crossing at the back gives it a contradictory sober yet edgy look! Superb I say! With this dress on, I feel I can be ready for just any occasion! The versatility!
Whats’s the other pretty thing that has been the cynosure of my eyes? It is of course this shoot location! I shot this dress at TVUM, a pretty restaurant in a quaint lane in Kalyani Nagar. Step in TVUM, and know that sparks will fly! The place will instantly captivate you. A villa with pastel coloured walls and round arches gives it a colonial feel. The architecture with a lush green lawn out front and a laid back alfresco seating will leave you with perfect resort-like vibes, right in the heart of Kalyani Nagar. Seemed only fitting to shoot this summery dress here! As far as executing the shoot goes, every corner here has something unique to offer. It has come to be one of my most favourite places in town to shoot.
The food at TVUM is heavenly! The cuisine is predominantly regional, yet the presentation is gourmet. Ingredients and elements, specific to the region, play a huge role in their dishes. A sucker for tasty appetizers, I went for their Potato Roast Starter and Beetroot Tikki. Having just finished the shoot, my starving soul could not have been happier. To accompany my delicious appetizers were two very refreshing and fruity drinks; Mango Peach Virgin Martini and Watermelon Virgin Martini.
Thus, I indulged and wallowed in. Thanks to the amazing vibes that came with flaunting a pretty dress in a pretty location. Pleasant pastel hues to brighten a cloudy day!
