How to Style a Plaid Shirt

I’m posting this outfit a little later. It was shot last year but I’ve been so busy that I forgot! But I have to because: Wolf and Plaid. Two things I’m crushing on lately. My jeggings have this little GoT stark logo in them..yep I customized them at the Pepe store in Connaught Place, Delhi. A lot of brands have started doing it now. Basically you buy any denim clothing and get it personalized with logos, studs, etc. I think its pretty cool because you get to make your jeans more you. While everyone was going with the usual, I decided to go with a wolf logo because…GoT! I also got these studs on the pocket. Continue Reading…

I Got My Eyes On You

In the age of technology, comes a new tech master, Le Eco, to hit the Indian smart phone market like a storm. Le Eco has already made a ton of hype on twitter, facebook, and other social medias, you name it. With a great line up of affordable smart phones with new CDLA (continual digital loseless audio) technology, it’s only a small wonder why everyone is going brohuaha over it. I already have Le 2 as you saw in my last post, but I also got Le Max 2 which I will review today. Le Eco Le Max 2 comes in two variants: Continue Reading…

Play Unscripted

john-players-spring-summer-2016-collection-playunscripted

This is the first time I’m writing for boys! Over the past 6 years I have received a lot of mails from boys for not writing about them..mostly what colours to wear, which products to use, which brands to try, how to style, etc etc and its no surprise because when it comes to fashion, men are more clueless than their prettier counterparts. I said it! So I decided to get you some styling advice from a guy who knows his stuff. He is my cousin (it runs in the family you see) and spends almost all his earnings on jeans and shoes. If you ask him where all his money is..he would say he is wearing it. So who better than him to give some summer styling tips to all the men out there. John  Players recently invited us to explore their new men’s spring summer collection and I took him along so we could have some fun together while working. Continue Reading…

On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink

loreal-paris-la-vie-en-rose-pink-collection-on-lips

I’m not a red lip girl. I like my makeup to be soft and subtle which is why I gravitate more towards the browns and pinks family. Soft. Why is why I got really excited when L’Oreal Paris launched an exclusive pink lipstick collection. It has got lipsticks, lip glosses and nail paint in different hues of pink. I really enjoy my brown lipsticks from L’Oreal Paris which you saw in my brown obsession outfit post. This time its all pinks and I couldn’t be happier. What I love the best is that there are different shades of pink to suit different Indian skin tones right from soft romantic pinks to bright fuchsia pinks. The l’oreal paris star pink collection is named La Vie En Rose and the shades are named after different l’oreal brand ambassadors. I love Katrina’s pink and Sonam’s the best because they suit my skin tone to the T. This outfit is inspired from the same collection. Continue Reading…

The Girl in the Brown Leather Jacket

tan-leather-jacket-how-to-style

You don’t see a lot of outfit posts on Petite Peeve in winters. Actually no outfit post. Well because its so freaking cold here in Delhi! Simply the thought of changing and getting into a short dress scares me more than umm….running into a tiger? So I found a way to brave winters. I traded my feminine side for the chic biker girl. Leather jackets, ripped pants, chunky boots and neutral makeup is now my official winter look. And call it the Kylie Jenner fad or what but I’ve fallen in love with the colour brown big time. From my clothes to hair..everything needs to be in a shade of brown. My previous posts must have told you I am now a brunette. I got rid of my golden ombre locks and went medium chocolate brown. In terms of makeup, all my eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks, etc are in different hues of brown. Continue Reading…

Its gonna be another flip flop summer

indian-street-style--lifestyle-blogger

Honestly I have always preferred winters over summers. But one can’t deny that summer style is the best! Who needs layering when you can flaunt those worked out arms and abs in the flowy summer clothing. Talking of work outs, I have recently joined a fitness class where we mix cardio with dance and yoga. After I graduate in cardio a little bit (never had proper exercise in my life!) I would be joining a gym soon for strength training. I’m also looking over my diet which really just means eating a lot of home cooked meals and skipping everything packaged and imported. Seasonal and local food is the best when you are watching your weight. If you want me to talk about my diet and fitness in detail then let me know and I will do a post on it. Continue Reading…

Mother of Dragons

sports-luxe-indian-fashion

My favourite character in Game of Thrones? Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons.

Raise your hand if you Monday mornings have turned blue again ever since the season 5 of Game of Thrones got finished. I know! And why hasn’t George RR Martin released Winds of Winter already? Why does he HAVE to take a million years with each book. If I were on Iron Throne, I would have sent him to the Wall already. Wait, that’s what Joffrey Baratheon would have done. If first impressions were last impressions, I wouldn’t have done this post. At first glance I dismissed the whole GoT series as porn. Later after a few friends insisted and I finally gave the dragon magic another try. I am one of those strange people who love spoilers. Suspense bothers me. So much that I can’t sleep until I know what’s gonna happen next..whether its a sit com, a book, a party or a gift. I GOTS to know! So it should not come as a surprise that I already know all Game of Thrones fan theories and predictions. So if you are a GoT enthusiast then talk to me and I will happily discuss everything.

It’s you. It’s always been you.

party-outfit-of-the-day-fashion-blogger

The weather in Delhi has got warmer over the last week. And I am actually quite bummed about it. I hate layering up. Yet I love winter. Its like I can’t survive with it but can’t live without it either. That’s how most things in my life work. I love them and I love to hate them. The winters are still chilly but the sun is coming out almost everyday now so I have put my scarfs and shawls away. I turned 24 last week and spent the day in doing absolutely nothing. Researching new eat outs on Zomato doesn’t count, right? I took a trip down south too, but that deserves a whole new post. So if you thought I was royally ignoring the blog then you aren’t entirely right. I’ve been busy doing….things. When I started Petite Peeve, I promised myself I would never stress myself over it like I do over VNA. Its more of a creative outlet for me and intend to keep it that way.

February is here, with all the cutesy things. Its makes me feel like a school girl all over again. Roses, chocolates, candles, cards..I am lucky that my bag is always buzzing with surprises. I am not big on Valentine’s day but who doesn’t like a little reason to celebrate. BUT when your birthday and valentine’s fall so close to each other, the gifting timeline gets blurred! Although I don’t like to soak myself up in red to go with the theme, but I do like a little colour on my lips. And I’ve been wearing the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Pure Reds lipsticks non stop ever since I got them. Love the pigmentation and staying power. You know I hate to touch up, so these matte lippers are a staple for me. In this look, I’m wearing Pure Scarleto which is a warm red by Blake Lively. Continue Reading…

New Year Resolutions!

how-to-look-stylish-in-winters

how-to-look-stylish-in-winters

A very very happy new year everyone from me and Team VNA! I hope you had a great new years eve. I went out for a family dinner and later visited a family friend. And came back home to snuggle up in my rajai once again. That’s usually how all my new year evenings go. I’m not a party person so I ring in the new year with my family. My insta feed was full of people dressed up in LBDs and partying like crazy which I dont know why but I don’t miss.

Coming to my new year resolutions..yes there are always resolutions even though they are meant to be broken yada yada but atleast I hope to carry on with them sincerely for as long as I can. So here is the list:

  • Exercise. I just measured my waist and it gave me a panic attack. Not just to me but people concerned *ahem* So I have decided to be more regular at exercising. I don’t like gyms but I love yoga. I also like to follow fitness videos on youtube. Only thing is that they get dull when you watch them for the 100th time. So suggest me some pumping music for workouts and any good videos which are different from the usual.
  • Eat right. I plan to cut down om my sugar intake. I have a sweet tooth so desserts are a BIG part of my life..so big that sometimes they make up my main course. So the biggest change needs to be made here. I also plan to cut down on fried food and rice. My other weakness. So yeah let’s see for how long I can stick to this. Although I am gonna keep a day every week to indulge. Can’t help it!
  • Sleep cycle. I’m very active at night. This habit comes from my childhood when I used to study for board exams at night and sleep and party during the day. And it never changed. Now I eat, sleep and shop during the day and work at night. I sleep so much that sometimes it stretches to 16hours. Not kidding. NEED to change that. So the max I am gonna stay up is 3am.
  • Get out of my comfort zone. I made this resolution last year and it worked really well. I can’t even start on the times I have missed big opportunities because I was either too shy or too comfortable in my bubble. But I have slowly started to push the boundaries and this year I will try even harder.
  • Be more crazy. I hate people who are boring and never do anything fun. Kuchh toh log kahenge…? Kehne do. Last year the craziest I went when I coloured my hair pink. This year I’m gonna do more crazy shit.
  • Donate. I always wanted to but never had the funds for it. Now that I have started earning, I am gonna keep aside a part of it for donations and charity.

Well that’s it! Any more resolutions and I will break them all. Let’s see how I perform this year.

Coming to the outfit, I know you must have seen this on VNA. This was my 2014 new year outfit. But I’m in a process of moving all my outfit posts on Petite Peeve. So I decided to post this here for new year! Gonna do a fresh shoot tomorrow so stay tuned.
