Hey there!

What's the best part about Monday? (Yeah, I said best and Monday in the same sentence :p) Hand On The Hip's new post! :D Yay! I am going to try my best to keep you entertained on Mondays! So today, I am going to talk about these amazing photographers who run the show at KSlenscapes.

They're a team of two and have a fabulous collection of pictures they have shot, from portraits to landscapes, wildlife photography to nature photography and of course, fashion photography! :D I had an amazing time shooting with them and they are a friendly bunch who try to make you smile. Do make sure you check their page out!

I got this super pretty polka dotted dress from LibeRent and I was so excited to shoot in this that this shoot was all about twirling, dancing and smiling! I hope the happiness catches on to you :)

That everyday maxi!

8/27/2016 0 Comments
Hellllllo divas!

How awesome would it be to wear something comfortable and still look fabulous? When the sun's scorching rays are all over the place and you need something summery, but you don't wanna shave your legs! What do you do then? Maxis to the rescue!

I simply love this one from Heidi Klum and the leopard print makes it all the more interesting! The texture of this dress is super soft and insanely comfy! I could go clubbing in this, chill at the beach in this, wear this to work or even sleep in this!

Sitting pretty!
Breezy cheesy!
Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody!
Pride always has a fall.
Sleep less, dream more.
Work hard, have fun and make history.
Be the best version of yourself!
Work hard, play hard.
When nothing goes right, go left!
Stop wishing. Start doing.

The Red Wall Diaries

8/24/2016 2 Comments
Hello peeps!

As the week progresses, it gets me more and more excited because we are getting closer to the weekend! :D But how do you ensure that you don't compromise on your style and have fun even during the week? The key is to keep it simple yet stylish!

Office wear can be pretty boring! But if you experiment the right way, you can make magic with anything! You can take all those basic shirts, tops from your wardrobe and add a hint of color to it to make it look less boring. If you do not want to stick to boot-cut formal trousers, you can always pick up a pair of treggings or a pencil skirt.

I wore this casual top with treggings from Rig and to add some color, I draped a soft, floral scarf I picked up from Sri Lanka.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication!
Dance 2 Life!
Dance the night away!
Window of opportunities?
Have less, do more, be more.
Searching for inner peace
Do it with passion, or not at all.
If it's meant to be, it will be.
Picture perfect!
The dream team!

The red wall was a blessing in disguise for this shoot. We had a tonne of fun shooting there!

Recreate the biker chick look with Kraftly!

8/22/2016 2 Comments
Hello there!
I recently came across this amazing website called Kraftly where you can buy some super cool stuff for throwaway prices!



A couple of days ago, I posted a blog post about how I styled my leather jacket. Well, if you want to recreate that look, then you can do it in seconds! The idea behind this look, was to keep it simple, yet sultry. I wore a plain, dull top inside with my leather jacket, some nice faded distressed denims and of course, my gorgeous black pumps!

I got so excited using this portal, that I instantly ended buying a couple of stuff from them! Cannot wait to get my hands on them.



Do you want this in your wardrobe? You can check out my collections at Biker Chick In The Block :)
Enjoy!

The must-haves for a trip to Goa!

8/22/2016 0 Comments
Hey sweeties!

Goa is literally my favorite holiday and party destination in India. I feel like it's a ritual to visit Goa at least a couple of times a year. What I like best about Goa is the carefree chalta hai attitude and the fact that we can party all night! Be it summer or winter, Goa is always fun! Today I am planning to give you a complete checklist on what you need to carry to Goa when you're vacay-ing with your ladies!


Pick up a funky backpack from a store nearby!
You definitely need a nice, colorful bag for this trip. I am a big fan of printed backpacks. I picked this up from Brigade Road for hardly 700 bucks. You can get yours too!



You don't wanna come back three shades darker!
Obviously, the first thing you need to carry in your backpack is your sunscreen lotion! I don't think the brand matters since they all serve the same purpose. Make sure you wear sunscreen day in and day out during your trip!


Overload your make-up bag with some colors!
You might need some light make-up during the day, because the sun is going to wash it away anyway. Stick to nude shades for the lips and eyes and don't use too much liquidy stuff during the day. But you can go loud at night! Spice up your look with some bright red or neon lipstick and some glitter too!


Shorts, minis and everything short!
Well, it's Goa! You need to be prepared for the heat! Prints are very in this season. Get them prints, florals out of your closet and flaunt them with style in Goa. If you got them bikinis on, even better! You can check out some of the outfits I wore for my recent trip.





Big sunglasses hide all sins!
Of course, you need sunnies! You need them to hide from the sun. You need them to hide droopy eyes from last night's party. You need them in the shower. You need them at the beach. You cannot go to Goa without a nice, funky pair of coolers!



Make your toes feel like they're on vacation!
So flip-flops are essential! You gotta be comfy walking around when there's sand everywhere. You can get creative. You can finally use your super-floral flip-flops and not be judged!


The party don't start till I walk in!
You want to make heads turn, don't you? Then get your groove on in those flashy party clothes. It's time to pack all those clothes you've always wanted to wear, but never had the chance to. Here's a bunch of clothes I wore during the night.




Life is too short to wear boring jewelry!
Accessories are the key elements of a perfect outfit. When in Goa, experiment! Wear those funky hairbands or those glow-in-the-dark bands or the floral head accessories. Here's your chance to get creative.



Make memories!
Any vacation is incomplete without a camera! Do make sure you take a lot of pictures so that you can remember how much fun you had!



That's all, folks! Hope you get a chance to plan a trip to Goa real sooon!

Love,

Leather is the new denim!

8/19/2016 1 Comments
Hi guys!

With winter round the corner, it's time to bring out all those warm clothes! But I decided to spice it up with my sexy leather jacket from Will's Lifestyle! In the early 50's, leather jackets were worn by motorcyclists and hooligans. They were a symbol of rebelliousness. But today, just about anyone can wear it!

Leather jackets bring comfort and style together. I wore mine with my uber cool faded distressed denims from Max, pumps from Steve Madden and this cute top from Hey.


Where are you now that I need you?
Looking for lost love!
Tell me what you want what you really really want!
This is how I do it!
Then there was the hand on the hip!
