Anupriya X Ghungat (Part 1)

Clothes, Fashion, Lifestyle - Anupriya kapur - April 17, 2018

Ghungat is a designer label by Shaveta and Anuj and you will find everything for bridal wear, weddings and cocktail. I created three different looks for them and since there are a lot of pictures, I’m doing two separate articles to do justice.

This lehenga and the jacket ensemble are elegant and elaborate yet easy to carry. I can’t even begin to describe how I felt wearing these gorgeous outfits.  It’s completely hand made and takes about 60 days ans 3-4 craftsman to work on it full time. Do check out their collection at South Ex store.

You can check the collection here – Ghungat . Make up by Richa and you can check her work on insta handle. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Continue Reading

Anupriya X Ghungat (Part 2)

Clothes, Fashion, Lifestyle - Anupriya kapur - April 17, 2018

Ghungat is a designer label by Shaveta and Anuj and you will find everything for bridal wear, weddings and cocktail. I created three different looks for them and since there are a lot of pictures, I’m doing two separate articles.

This saree is such a stunner yet very comfortable and light. I decided to keep it minimal. The amazing smokey eye make up has been done by Richa.

MOTR x ColorosoWeaves

Clothes, Fashion - Anupriya kapur - December 27, 2017

I’m fortunate that as a blogger I’m pushed out of my comfort zone again and again. I was really excited when Coloroso Weaves approached me for a collaboration for their beautiful lightweight benarasi sarees. However, they wanted certain looks for the sarees and I wasn’t one bit sure if I would be able to carry them off. I love wearing sarees a certain way and hadn’t experimented much with them. My friend Richa, who’s learned the art of make up from the best in the country helped me with the looks. And it all came together beautifully. Hope you like them.

The sarees weigh only around 400 grams and are very easy to drape.

As I get older

Fashion, Lifestyle - Anupriya kapur - October 3, 2017

I have written a bit about how I have suffered from body image issues in my previous blogs and on Instagram. Even though the intensity of how I felt about myself varied, it was at times crippling enough to avoid social outings. When I look back, I realise how I would only wear deep necks and short clothes because I thought it would take away the attention from my face. As I believed (and at times still do) there was something really wrong with it (my face). But as you get older you worry less about the superficial. And if you feel great inside you radiate that feeling. A fit mind and body have a very big role in helping me deal with these issues. But don’t get me wrong I still love wearing deep necks and I’m in better shape than I ever was, just that I don’t wear them to cover my insecurities now. My choice of clothes now is completely dependent on how good I feel in them. If it means tiny shorts and a crop top because I’m on a holiday so be it. I don’t like sticking to one look but lately I find myself buying a lot of cottons as staying in Gurgaon, that’s the best choice of fabric as per me. And as I’m getting older somethings that I look out for are- Continue Reading

#SareeOnMe #WeWearCulture Photo Project with @googleindia @googlearts

Clothes, Fashion, For the soul - Anupriya kapur - September 18, 2017

Google has recently launched their Arts & Culture platform in a big way internationally. A part of its project is #SareeOnMe with Google India in which they wanted to showcase real women who wear sarees. And for me it was just overwhelming to be a part of it. The image would in the calendar to be launched in 2018 and has accomplished women from various walks of life. It has been a very humbling experience to say the least. I settled for the simplest and most inexpensive handloom saree that I have (I bought it for Rs 600 recently). I wanted to use this opportunity to prove that even in its simplest form, a handloom saree exudes elegance which is unmatched. All the pictures have been clicked by Naina Redhu. Continue Reading

Stepping out of my comfort zone

Fashion - Anupriya kapur - May 23, 2017

I love wearing sarees, however, I’m painfully aware that I don’t experiment much. When Ritu Kumar sent me this gorgeous saree out of her new collection (click here to check out the full collection), I was excited like how but equally nervous. It’s so out of my comfort zone, how do I style a floral crop top blouse when I’m used to wearing a regular sleeveless blouse with all my sarees? But then I got quite a few compliments on how beautiful the combination looked and was asked where I picked up this saree from. Continue Reading

Sneaker loving

Accessories, Clothes, Fashion - Anupriya kapur - March 10, 2017

I have never paid much attention to fashion trends. But like most women I struggle with I-have-nothing-to-wear-syndrome and I-don’t-know-what-to-wear-it-with syndrome. But I guess as you age, some things take priority over others. So for me now comfort comes first. Even though I still love wearing heels, I avoid wearing them to places where I know I have to stand for long hours or if I have to be on the move. Also, I don’t prefer to wear heels post a long workout or run. Thankfully, gone are the days when sneakers were only meant for gyms. You can style them the way you want to. So with my adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged I tried creating a few looks. What helps is that they are grey so they go well with most colors. Continue Reading

A forgotten affair

Accessories, Clothes, Fashion, For the soul - Anupriya kapur - February 8, 2017

How often do we take the city we live in for granted? Years pass by and the only place we usually visit are the nearest cafes and pubs. But when we travel, we take out time for places that aren’t even remotely worth visiting. I have started to believe that it’s almost criminal to not to see the heritage your own city has to offer.

My visits to monuments of Delhi might have started of as I wanted good pictures of me in a saree (you can read my previous articles here and here). But it’s slowly converted to love for Delhi and how beautiful it is.

Express Yourself

Fashion, For the soul - Anupriya kapur - January 23, 2017

I had been contemplating this shoot for a long time. And once it was done I was contemplating if I should be sharing it or not (maybe because it was a little sensual). And of course I was scared to share it because of good old conditioning and the fear of being judged. Once I realized that, there was no stopping me. There is hardly any skin. Every woman wants to be shot like this. Every woman is and wants to look sensual. The only thing that stops us is fear and conditioning. And this is just another jab in my fight against it 🙂

A big shout out to Shailaja for capturing me the way I had imagined.
