This was Damini's first time at Lakme Fashion Week and she was a little shy and happy at the same time with all the attention she got :-)
She studied engineering in bio technology from Thadomal Shahani Engineering College and is currently researching on cancer.
This dress that I'm wearing is from one of my friend's Facebook store. It costs Rs 1099!
The earrings are vintage Chanel and cost Rs 87,000!
The clutch from Limeroad is worth Rs 1,000 and the Gladiators from Koovs are for Rs 3500.
Be simple and classy.

It's basically fun and affordable fashion. It's an Ikkat dress which I got for Rs 1,000. The cape is from Amazon for Rs 850.
My shoes are from Bangkok and I bought it for Rs 1,500. The bag is from Limeroad and is about Rs 750.
I collected these accessories from street shops.
It's good to know about trends, but don't follow them blindly. I mix and match with brands with non-branded stuff.
