you should discover for yourself and feel Wow! -Sayanti Banerjee Venue: Sofitel Mumbai BKC
After a long day at work, you might wish to go for a dinner date… Selecting clothes will be the last thing on your mind. Do not waste your energy on fretting about what to wear. Keep it simple, classy and wow:
#Opt for a monochromatic a-line gown to keep it classy. It can be your best bet for a romantic evening. # Make sure that it fits you well and looks comfortable too. #Opt for a statement piece like a necklace to accessorize your attire. A watch can look chic too. #Keep the makeup glamourous with a hint of glitter on the face, soft smoky eyes and glossy lip colour.

#1 As far as the exotic recipes are concerned, they are from the legendary Chef Imtiaz Qureshi with a modern presentation by the sous chefs. #2 While you are bound to get spoilt for choice, some of the ‘must-try’ dishes from the menu are – Starter: Kakori Kabab – the skewers of minced lamb are grilled on charcoal embers and will simply melt in your mouth. Main course: Khameeri roti – is soft bread cooked in clay oven and topped with exotic saffron. Safed murgh supreme – has strips of tender chicken tossed up in mild spiced cream and yellow chili gravy. Desserts: Jalebi pearls as the name suggests, the caviar of jalebi are worth savouring with royal rabri by the side. #3 The view of Marine Drive is completely breath-taking! You would want to sit by the huge glass windows overlooking the Arabian Sea and get mesmerized. #4 While the décor is classy, the ambiance is warm and welcoming. #5 It is a place ideal for a traditional, sit-down family buffet but you can also enjoy some couple time or ‘me-time’ there as well. – Sayanti Banerjee
How innovative can you get with stripes, depends on you. So next time you decide to wear something semi-formal to work, ditch the stripped business shirt and opt for a smart dungaree instead. Here’s what I choose to do to make my weekday dressing different and feel wow even on a Monday!
# Team up a simple black and white stripe bottom-wear with a fresh green for a change. A hint of fluorescent always has a fun and funky effect.
#Keep the mood casual chic with minimal accessories.
#Simple makeup and clean hairdo always works best to complement this street style effortlessly.
15th August is Independence Day and I wish to celebrate this day as a ‘freedom from the regular routine’. There are a few things that you can add-on to your weekend planner in order to do something different and feel Wow:
# Sport the tri-colours of the Indian National Flag as a part of your makeup or as a cool tattoo!
#Even if you do not wear ethnic clothes like salwar suit or a saree often, go desi and look graceful.
#Accessories yourself with Indian trinkets and a bindi to make all the difference!
While the face looks wow, the hands and the feet remain neglected… Quite common but can change right? So for a ‘head to toe’ well groomed look, make sure to try out a mini pedicure and manicure at home at least.
Here’s how to go Wow!
# Use a scrub to remove the dead skin from your hands and feet.
# Apply a hydrating moisturizer to make your skin feel soft and supple. Choose the one that is non greasy and has a sweet aroma too.
#Apply vibrant colours on your nails that have an instant ‘pick-me-up’ effect!
I love sunflowers and wanted to rope in a hint of sunshine with shades of yellow. Go with the hues that make you HAPPY!
It is Friday evening and you are wondering what to wear, where to go and what to do… Well, I am in that frame of mind right now and have realized that an outfit can actually set the mood for everything else to follow suit. You can call me a ‘fashion show’ addict as I never miss to check out what’s hot on the ramps across the global runways. They not only are a visual treat but can inspire you to look ‘wow’!
I love to experiment but if I feel a designer’s style suits me, I don’t mind picking up more from her collection. Of late, http://www.latej.com has become my ‘go-to’ option. This pink maxi gown makes me feel like a diva.
#The vintage cut work embroidery around the neck makes it ideal attire for a sophisticated occasion.
#The long cuff sleeves upgrade the style quotient to Victorian glamour. So you can bring on the indo-western look effortlessly.
. #While the elastic waist band makes the fit comfortable, the plunging back transforms it to ‘super sexy’!
#A gorgeous mix of georgette and silk fabrics keep the fashion statement regal and classy.

When you wish to wear a tight casual top or a well fitted party dress, the fitting of your innerwear defines the look from within. I decided to shop for fancy yet functional lingerie that would be ‘fabulous, as I am’!
I took my pick from Enamor’s spring/summer 2015 collection with Parisian theme. The Eiffel tower motif which is an iconic symbol for fashion, is my all-time-favourite. So I definitely wanted to select the bra with that print on it as it spelled the elements of glamour, elegance and romance from my dream city, Paris. But what makes it wow is the fact that:
#The fit is perfect and can make any simple outfit that you wear it with, look graceful no matter what is your body shape.
#The satin finish feels good on the skin and is ideal for a hot humid day as well.
#The straps are cute enough to be flaunted with a tube dress without looking OTT (over-the-top) or vulgar at all.
By adding such a ‘confidence booster’ to my wardrobe, I felt WoW!
