Often, when I do a makeover for a person, I tell them that I need to see more of their personality.. the personality that their clothes reflects. I want to see more elements of their lifestyles, something that matches the occasion. for example, take resort wear- going out for a vacation is a time to let go, get free of the stuffiness of their routine lifestyle. so why not? why not do it completely, along with the clothing.. spice your clothes up a bit, go free, romantic, maybe, sexy.. for those few days that you spend away.
On a similar note, long weekend is coming up, and I’ve been hit by a surge of interested, prospective buyers who want to know what they can do for their weekend off… with their clothes, that is. This got me thinking, “What would I do?” So I pulled out my designing skills, and got this together ( this one for getting the pattern right i stitched the sample myself ) , something that I’d love to wear on my few days off, but not anywhere else.. something different. Here’s what i put together and photography by Rashmi did complete justice to the out fit . Accessorized with a watch and a handmade ring from Amrapalli .
So just analyze your lifestyle and your personality so you can have a wardrobe that fits that .

Love for dresses is what motivates me to design dresses for BAJA . I am comfortable if the dresses for special occasions don’t cling but drape well . These are some of the dresses that i love to wear to that perfect dinner date.
Chiffon dresses with stretch lining and hence it drapes very well . Go very subtle on the accessories to keep the ‘look’ delicate and dreamy 🙂
Many women ( and men too) are afraid to layer their clothes for fear of looking bigger than they actually are. While logic would lead one to believe that this claim is true, if you’ve mastered the art of layering this couldn’t be further from the truth. A perfectly layered look will compliment your curves and create the illusion of a more proportional silhouette.
Choice of fabric for the jackets /shrugs or cardigans (the layer) should depend on the weather and occasion.
In winter i wore the dress with red leather biker jacket and summer i wore it with a brown cotton knit cardigan.
Layering also gives you options to create different look with the same dress .
It is said that one picture is a thousand words. Different pictures speak to different people, but none have called out to me like this one. A picture of a seemingly ordinary scenario, an everyday scene on the Bangalore metro, but this beautiful woman represents everything important to me, the triumph of BAJA. A woman comfortable in her own skin, casual yet chic, all with a pink clad baby in her arms. This woman, clad in BAJA, is everything we’d ever hoped our wearers to be. Women have three important elements, their casual side, professional, and party-elegance. To blend all these three elements seamlessly into one perfect person is our call. Somehow, this picture says it all.
Wake up to the wonderful you in BAJA ‘s dresses and frocks 🙂
Love frocks or dresses, that gives me options to wear it differently depending upon the occasion and people i am meeting . Wearing #BAJAdress ( from the beaded collection )….
#BAJAdress “Minty tint ” 100% linen dress, puckering at the yoke and a tie at the back gives this dress a comfortable fit . Pairing it with a fitted corduroy jacket, lambaddi tribal necklace, pearl and crystal ring , peep toe wedges and smudge eyes 🙂
Things i love the most is to put random things together and enjoy when it actually works 🙂 Wearing a hot pink frock, trench coat ( not lined, thin cotton ) and traditional Indian juttis . Fuchsia lip color, kajal and i am already for work ( yes, was out at 7;30 am and it was chill )
A blast of color on a rainy moody day in Bangalore. in love with the water color pattern ,the cool pockets typical of BAJA brand. A yellow pebble on the neck in a silver string calms the colors down and pairing it with boots.
