On a floral trail | Marks & Spencer
"A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in - what more could she ask? A few flowers at her feet and above her, the stars." - Les Misérables (Yes! I tweaked it a little).
The last couple of days have given me a chance to get back to something I love the most - dreaming. When you learn to let go of things and give your dreams a chance, you realise that the going may be a tough one, but it is certainly not impossible. Everything is possible with the perfect blend of hard work, talent, blessings and oodles of patience. Surrounding yourself with things you love is another trick. If you are happy from within, nothing can stop you from achieving your goals.
All things floral is one such thing that makes me smile. And recently, when Marks and Spencer India invited me to put together a look (with my readers) keeping the floral theme in mind, I just couldn't say no. Adding the perfect touch to my happiness was the place where we got this photo shoot done.
Although I had my doubts about how and what the participants will pick for me on Twitter and Facebook, I was mighty impressed with the fashionistas who not only upped the ante with their trendy choices, but also took a step ahead towards winning the Marks and Spencer India #PerfectedByYou contest. After posting photographs of stuff that I couldn't take my eyes off, this outfit turned out to be the unanimous winner. With just the right amount of bling, a touch of oxblood and a gorgeous floral print, I couldn't have asked for more.
While browsing through the vast and absolutely beautiful A/W 2014 collection at the Marks and Spencer India store in Bandra, one can see how the brand has got the right mix of comfort and style. Each section, be it the Autograph or Limited Edition collection, had a dominant print and color, which helped set it apart from the other. Autumn is not only about dark hues, so there is something for everyone at M&S. The comfy wraps, well fitted pencil skirts, blousons in different prints, trench coats in lovely colours and of course, my favorite, the super comfortable sweat shirts and knit cardigans, were all so 'take home' worthy. Among the accessories and shoes, I fell in love with a pair of heeled sneakers. Full marks to M&S for offering such a huge variety of apparel and accessories, which is not only high on the fashion quotient, but quite affordable as well.
