Marni for H&M

Pictures :: H&M
We HEART H&M. Not only do they made great affordable clothes so effortlessly chic, but they definitely know how to team up with the best...Italian brand Marni, the undisputed king of print! Come March 8th and its time to hit the stores again and queue up for the Marni collaboration at H&M. If you are worried about the lines, remind yourself that it is a choice between $50 or $1500!?? A lot of people out there don't get this collaboration thingy yet...but its the best thing that happened to us recessionistas! Why waste time browsing the high end fashion lines when we know we can never afford them? Here is the solution to all our spring summer wardrobe problems, cheap, chic and colourful. Our only complaint is that we need to see more shoes (they do look a tad bit grandmas esk!)

If prints are your thing then here is THE collection in which you can make complete outfits for some print on print action...if its not your thing, try mixing some of these pieces with some trendy low crotch pants or jeans/leggings. Personal fav :: The reversible printed dress @ 100 has great potential (we would love to style that for our blog!!). Beside that the ditsy printed shorts @ $50 and the patent leather top @ $150 are very Marni. The jewelry is awesome and super affordable @  $20-$50. Not sure what to make of the sequinned collar necklace, has a great potential to look really silly or very unless you are Coco Channel! Which ones are your favorites? 

PS:: Big smile on face about archiving this post for 29th Feb!!

Miss Oni Diaries :: Swimwear

Our recent trip to Goa with top model Miss Nita, was not only a great holiday but an excellent testing opportunity for out Missoni for Target swimwear. Besides its beaches and parties, Goa is a great shopping destination for clothes and second hand jewelry items. We found this lovely spiky silver necklace in Arpora flea market (open Saturdays).They have sunglasses in every colour sold by hawkers on the road side! If you visit on a Wednesday try Anjuna flea market.

Miss Nita wears:: Missoni jersey shorts, Juicy Couture bikini top, Tieks shoes, flea market sunglasses, silver spike necklace from flea market.
Miss Priyanca wears:: Missoni 2 piece (comes with a detachable yellow halter strap), zara shoes, Flea market sunglasses, ding dong bling earrings- gift from a friend.

If you are diggin the Tieks (ballerina shoes) which are available in every possible colour under the sun, then we have excellent news. We will be visiting the NYC store in the coming week and shhh...possibly have a give away stay tuned.  In the mean time here is a slideshow (below, click play) to illustrate the requirements of our models at The Fashington Press! If like me, you want to see more of Miss Nita on the blog please leave her some comments!
