Who writes this blog?
That would be me - Jyoti! (See my smiling face? That's not just for the picture - I am actually a happy gal!).I am a girl next door (only more stylish!) who loves writing, fashion and shopping! I grew up in the colorful and often chaotic world of India and worked as a news reporter for the national TV network (that helps me maintain a sense of calm even in the messiest of situations!) As it happens, I fell in love, moved to USA, had a baby - and through it all shopped sensibly and stayed stylish! One fine day (that would be March 13, 2011) I decided my style, fashion and shopping sense needed to be showcased! Thus started Style-Delights - my fashion blog!
What is it about?- Here at Style-Delights, I write about the practical aspect of style and fashion, and how everyday women (like me) can realistically translate couture fashion and latest trends in their wardrobes. I see countless fashion blogs and magazines where the fashion and pictures are gorgeous, but in real life, pulling that look is very tricky! On my blog You will find a lots of 'How To' posts and shopping tips on getting the expensive celebrity look for less in 'Style For Less' feature
Who/What is your style inspiration? My style is influenced by the timeless chic elements of fashion. I adore the grace and sophistication of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Kate Middleton, the playfulness of Blake Lively and Jennifer Aniston, and the gorgeous simplicity of Angelina Jolie. But most importantly I love the style that works with my body and personality. If I have to describe my style in couple of words, it would be - Gloss with Substance!
- In the beginning, I used to take my outfit pictures with the help of a tripod and a remote. But now my awesome husband and a very good friend take them as and when they have time ( and when the little one is in school!)
How often do you update your blog - 3-4 times a week. I want to write at least 3 times a day, but with a 8 year old kid, and a busy husband, I try to prioritize and spend quality time with the family, and try to keep my content fresh.
Your favorite stores?- Ann Taylor, LOFT, J Crew, Piperlime, Zara, Forever 21, TJMaxx, Topshop, Zappos and ASOS. These days, I love looking for stuff online to find out amazing pieces and great deals!I love to hunt for designer stuff, but buy only what I can afford.
Is there an outfit you can never get tired of? - Skinny jeans, a crisp button front shirt and flats! Or a pencil skirt, boots and sweater in fall/winter.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?- That would be Sequim - a small town in Washington State, where they grow lavender, breathe mountain fresh air and smile at strangers!
