I Style!: Retro Style for Gadgets

If this mobile phone were a woman, she’d be rocking the retro look. I spotted this cassette-style mobile phone cover on someone’s table at my last office. Gadgetry has become a vital part of our style quotient as well so for the first time, here’s featuring a gizmo on I…

I Style!: No Excess Baggage

I haven’t been a big fan of Fastrack ever since the ‘cheating is cool’ subtext in their ad campaign. But this duffel bag from their collection caught my eye, especially for its label. It reminded me of the Tantra tee-shirts form of humour. So, after a long hiatus, an I…

I Style!: Big Bang Srini

A crazy work day is made tolerable by a Vulcan salute from a Sheldon Cooper fan. This is Srinivas Kulkarni (better known as Srini and the inspiration for such Sriniisms as “A Srini in time saves mine” by SWLers). For his poker-face acceptance of my announcement that he was being…

I Style!: Moustache Ro!

I Style!: Moustache Ro!

If it’s been awhile since my last I Style! spotting, it’s because you people are just not being adventurous in what you wear!! But I guess what makes this fun is how a surprise might be waiting around any corner, any minute (oh, I really must carry that camera around…

I Style!: Grumpy Monday Socks

I Style!: Grumpy Monday Socks

Look what I found on the Santacruz station bridge! I also spotted a Homer Simpson pair and another one titled ‘Bumpy Thursday’ with a Mr.Bump character. This was what I picked up. It cost me all of Rs.20. Grumpy Monday themed socks for Rs.20 at Santacruz station bridge *Cross posted…

I Style!: Biscuit Babe

I Style!: Biscuit Babe

D is one of those good ol’ sorts whom I meet a couple of times a year at best. But the conversations are always delightful & interesting. She has a certain comfortable air about her that always calms me down and makes me feel good, wherever I am. What’s more,…

I Style!: The Bird Lady

At the Kala Ghoda Art Festival 2011 this year, where I conducted a session on blogging, I had a chance to meet some new people. One of them was the lovely Snigdha Manchanda Binjola, better known on the twitterverse as @actionink. I, like everyone else in the session was captivated…

I Style!: Three Aliens Plus One

Back in February, I had the privilege of conducting a blogging workshop as part of the Kala Ghoda Art Festival 2011. Among the team, was my dear friend Moksh Juneja (also known as The Social Media Catalyst). Now Moksh is a regular teddybear, a fact known well to those close…

I Style!: Keep An Eagle Eye On That Bag!

I Style!: Keep An Eagle Eye On That Bag!

I’m one of those women who loves big bags. I hated the style of tiny, itty-bitty handbags and clutches are my personal cross to bear. My favorite bags are all large, roomy creations. But sitting down at a restaurant or a cafe usually poses a problem. Such bags usually need…

I Style!: Matchless Shoes

I Style!: Matchless Shoes

I spotted this at the post-rally celebration at Lavasa this weekend. Shibani Kashyap performed the Lavasa anthem and right after that came a cutesy boy band called SQS Supastars. They began with hot favorites like ‘It’s My Life’ and progressed even to ‘I Will Survive’. The women hooted, they cheered…

I Style: Almost Responsible

I Style: Almost Responsible

This is an old photograph, shot at the memorable first Wall Project a year-and-half ago. Jhayu created a surreal upside-down skyline of Mumbai along with Wanderblah. His contribution to our group-project, a depiction of a Twitter wall said, “@jhayu is the bom shizgit” His tee-shirt is the exact colour of…

I Style!: Rock Chic

It’s been awhile since an I Style! post came up. Have Mumbaikers stopped being adventurous in their apparel? I think it’s got more to do with the fact that I am not on the road every single day, struggling through a workaholic life and thus extra sensitive to a splash…

I Style! – Spell Tail With A Tee

This is Kenneth Lobo. Apart from the fact that he organizes a really cool event or two each week (Movies! Poetry! Music!) as a part of The Bombay Elektrik Projekt, he looks just like a regular guy. Ah, but appearances can be deceptive. Does this look like the face of…

I Style! – Going Places, Well-Equipped!

Landmark is having their annual sale! Of course you knew that if you are a book-lover in this city. But did you know that they don’t just have their regular (great!) books on sale but also a load of cool stuff as well? Check out what I picked up for…

I Style! – The BEST Man

I spotted Neil Dantas at The Wall Project and I just had to stop him to tell him just how I Style! he was! Isn’t his tee-shirt absolutely fab? It’s Bambaiyya in a way that nothing else starts to match.For the uninitiated, BEST, an acronym for Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and…

I Style! – Biting Nuts

I Style! – Biting Nuts

I was just about to give up on this section as I found it rapidly running out of options. What’s more, it has gotten a little tiresome to discover that even the wildest of us only show our individuality in our footwear! Then, like a ray of neon, electric-strobe light,…

I Style! – Slippery Skullduggery

We continue the foot fetish at I Style!. I’m getting rather tired of saying it but we really express our secret, colourful side only on our feet! Still, they do say that you can tell a person by his/her shoes. So here goes a very young lady who traipsed into…

I Style! – Crocodiles At My Feet

For the first time, I feature myself on I Style! Not that I don’t practise what I preach, but how would it look if I used my blog to keep plugging my own pics? Whaddaya take me for, huh??! 😉 I saw these at the Inc.5 store on sale and…

I Style! – A Cat Lands On Her Feet

These shoes belong to a media professional. She was hurrying to work two steps ahead of me on the railway bridge (if you don’t recognise the thread on the floor, you ain’t a true Mumbaiker!). But she stopped long enough to let me take a photograph. Granted the lace-ups on the…

I Style! – Hidden Tiger, Crouching Tiger

Yes, this one made me smile. Chuckle actually and even snigger a bit. But well, you gotta admire the guy’s guts (gall?), don’t you? Who cares about making a statement on one’s tee-shirt? (remember those black tees with a humongous picture of the middle finger? Sooo unclassy, so un-I Style!…
