Meeting Leia's mom

After reading Leia blog here and meeting her, I was more intrigued and keen to meet her mom too. In her blog, Leia keeps mentioning her mom here and there and from her little references, seeing her interiors etc, Leia's mom appeared to me like a woman of very fine tastes. I used to tell Leia that I want to meet her mom whenever she comes to Delhi. 
Today, finally I had the chance to meet the very sophisticated woman. I was/am even more impressed than before. She came across as someone who is very polished and classy. But more than that what impressed me was her cool persona. She did not throw her weight around. In fact, she seemed (like Leia), too coy, demure and yet very intelligent, creative, fashionable, aware...how do I put it- the right blend- the woman of substance- the perfect mix. She is so well maintained and pretty. I am mentally stimulated when I meet such people. This mother daughter duo was/is a delight to meet.




What I am wearing

Dress: Recently picked from Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires had more of cute boutiques rather than malls and big chain of stores. There were few malls too but primarily there were boutiques. Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood were the high end places to shop. If you entered the small shops/boutiques, each store was different from the other and had its own small label and cute designs. 
Heels: Nine West
Bag: from my export line




This is an interesting piece that I picked from Plaza Dorrego, Sunday fair in Buenos Aires. It is an ear ring made out of feather. Strangely, the shop sold only 1 of each. Even if you asked for 2, they did not have them. And knowing me, the moment I saw this in fuchsia color, I could not resist it. Matches with my hair extensions.
Feather jewelry was in vogue there. I saw someone in Tango wear it and I had to buy it too. It costed just 15 peso. Today, the conversion of peso to Indian Rupee is
1 peso= Rs. 11.61
which means this costed me Rs. 174.15. Not bad. Hmm. I am pleased.



And this is a new shade of Mac lip glass that I have again picked from BA. This is their latest launch. It is called delicious and it is actually delicious.



At night I had to attend Vinny Shourie's 30th anniversary party at Barka, The garden of five senses. I threw over a lace jacket over my day attire. This lace jacket is also a recent purchase from Argentina. I picked it from a shop in Florida street in BA. It is their very traditional jacket. Everyone there will be seen wearing a similar lace thing- a top, a dress, bolero etc. I had to pick at least one. It is a good way to dress up your casual attire.






At the party, I was mostly hanging out with Nasir, Sylvie- the famous hair stylist and beauty expert and Vandana Vadhera, the artist, singer and emcee. There was also Aamer Zakir
