My Style.

Aug 20, 2012


Here is something most people are surprised about when they hear that I am a fashion blogger: I am not a personal style blogger. In fact, I have never posted a photograph of myself until last week's post on my Seventeen Singapore feature. While most fashion blogs and websites today are personal style bloggers, with dozens of posts on daily outfits and accessories, Moments with Meera has always focused on the details of the fashion industry itself, from the collections to the magazine covers. Despite my deep love for personal style blogs, (I am currently loving Atlantic Pacific and of course, Cupcakes and Cashmere) MWM was never intended to be a personal style blog. However, I would love to share my personal style with my readers. 

1, 2, 3: I have to admit that I am an accessories junkie. But, to be more specific, Forever 21 accessories are my greatest weakness. Every time I enter the store, I purchase one or two accessories - I can't help it! The brand always produces feminine, somewhat girly but edgy pieces. How can you resist? The first three pictures above are all F21 accessories which I wear on a regular basis.
4: I am originally from India, although I have grown up in both NYC and Singapore. My family and I go back to India almost twice a year and I absolutely love getting henna done on my hands. The red intricate design is such a beautiful form of expression and a part of my culture which I have cherished since my childhood. 
5: I wrote about the fabulous NARS x Thakoon collection here a few months ago and finally bought one bottle while I was in London. I tried the color out last week and added this adorable Sephora polka-dot sticker to the look! 
6: Perfume is one of my biggest beauty must-haves. This Flora by Gucci scent is one of my favorites, and I generally save it for special occasions. The perfume is a delicate melody of soft, floral fragrances that any girl would love.
7: It is impossible for me to stop staring at my New Look wedges. I have never bought a pair of wedges before, but as soon as I laid eyes on these nautical shoes, I had to have them. They are impossibly chic, with a subtle bow in the front, and a thin navy-blue strap.
8: Marc Jacobs can do no wrong. The designer has been my favorite for years. Everything from my laptop and iPhone covers to my pencil case is Marc Jacobs. This white MJ bag has been my go-to handbag for every holiday, making its way across the globe. I have carried it to Hong Kong, Beijing, Istanbul, London, and many other beautiful cities.
9: Lastly, the boldest purchase I have ever made: this McQueen-esque clutch from Femme X. Alexander McQueen's instantly-recognizable clutches are on the wish-lists of many a fashionista, including myself. Although I hope to purchase an original McQueen clutch someday, this similar version from Femme X is the perfect substitution, complete with a silver skull.

What do you think of my style? I hope my readers have enjoyed getting a peek into my world of fashion! For more photographs me, my personal sense of style, and my life, follow me on Instagram: @meeranavlakha.

  9. Meera, I actually really respect that you don't put pictures up of yourself and being a more substantial fashion blog ( if that makes sense? ). Anyways, wonderful pictures! And thanks for your visit, as always. Hope we keep in touch.
