I still feel excited about Friendship’s Day as much I used to, in school and college! So friendship goes beyond age. In fact, in today’s world when we live high on virtual reality, it is all the more important to celebrate such a day that will help us to catch up with friends in person for a change. For me, this first Sunday of August got even more special as I decided to add the other ‘F’ of Fashion to it.
I wanted to pick up gifts for my friends from Madame`s ‘Studio Collection’ as I was excited to find out about ‘Selfie With Bestie” Campaign launched by the young and fashionable brand ambassador Shazahn Padamsee. As I stepped into the Madame’s Lokhandwala store in Andheri west, there seemed to be a happy buzz.
The actor was present there herself to treat the winners of the online campaign by posing for selfies with them at the store.
In fact what seemed to me a ‘wow’ concept was that the bloggers could also showcase a look for Shazahn by dressing themselves up in which ever outfit, accessory or footwear they fancied. Now that was some treat for sure and I too wanted to indulge myself in this fashion fiesta.
Madame`s ‘Studio Collection’ had interesting zebra prints and checkered motifs that I liked apart from the florals and the tropical bold pints. I loved the colour scheme as well that varied from white, peach, maroon, wine, royal blue to black. The leather work, embellishments and embroideries made some of those pieces stand out.
I however settled for a rather subtle chic appeal. So I chose to sport a white maxi dress with asymmetrical hemline. The golden polka dots simply upgraded its fashion quotient. I also found myself a beautiful piece of fashion accessory to team up with my chosen outfit. The finely handcrafted leaf motifs of this oxidized silver neckpiece, complimented my dress so well that it was all that I required to feel party ready.
When Shazahn saw me in this new avatar, she actually liked the look put together by me for her. That made my day and we got clicking a few happy selfies.
As we got chatting, I quickly checked with her what makes things appear ‘wow’ to this diva? Pat came the answer, “It needs to get my attention twice! A sort of a head turner literally, for instance while purchasing anything, I need to literally look back at that product after initial scanning.”
