The Lust List: Corals & Statement Pieces

by mehak on August 13, 2012

in Features, Lust list

This months lust list is inspired by Delhi Couture Week 2012. While one is directly off the Manish Malhotra Ramp, another is designed by a young jewellery designer i met at DCW 2012 (in the womens bathroom where else!).

  • Long Coral Kurta with Pallazos by Manish Malhotra: I love these Pakistani suit-pallazo silhouettes, and the fact that Manish Malhotra did it in this scrumptuous color with a gorgeous sheer back was just genius. It had beige pallazos underneath and needless to say im going to shamelessly copy this thing and get something similar made for myself
  • Mirror with Console: I want one area of my apartment to look like this. Except the boy doesnt understand the concept of mirrors- ‘We are not movie stars, why do we need mirrors everywhere’ he quips. Tsk Tsk. Men , and their poor decorating skills.
  • Statement Necklace by Nitya Arora: Nitya is a young jewellery designer who i bumped into in the womens bathroom at DCW 2012. Actually i bumped into her friend who was wearing the most fabulous necklace and i couldnt stop gushing about it. She introduced Nitya , whose label Valliyan by Nitya  retails at www.perniaspopupshop.com
  • Lancome Midnight Rose Collection Blush: 3 Blushes in one and 3 colors that i love ! Need.
  • Butter London Trout Pout: As you can see, there is coral love happening here. Im loving how this one is a sort of milky coral as opposed to a bright, orange coral. Very unique !!

PS: This house setting up thing. When does it really end? I mean, i feel like iv been decorating my house since like the last 3 months but all i have accomplished is a sofa, a dining table,a cabinet, a dresser, a bed and two stools. The walls are bare, i need like a dozen side tables and vases and little quirky pieces of furniture but i finish one purchase and there are 20 other purchases lined up. Ugh. HATE IT ! But also secretly love it.

You know even I have been dreaming of a mirror like that! But am yet to find a real conversation starter yet affordable one in real life… Sigh! That MM Kurta I am shamelessly going to copy-paste-edit-save. :P

I love your lust list. This is the third time I m seeing this post. Even I saw Michelle Phan use this palette. The colours are just so cute. Has it been launched? I tried searching but I think its still in the launching phase. ANyways I just wanted to tell you, I love reading your blog. It is so girly and cute and I am sort of addicted to it. You’re doing a really good job and I hope one day my blog can grow like this too. Its so fun to read your posts. :-)

Hi Mehak! I liked the line” We are not movie stars…” ;)
and Yes wht my experience says is that the house decoration never ends…once u decorate ur house for a couple..u’ll have a kid.. by the time u decorate it for a kid the kid grows up..So u keep redecorating it
