About Me

My photo
Style Destino is my personal style space bout cruelty-free and vegetarian style. Fashion is not above someone's life and it is irresponsible when someone makes a fashion choice that involves taking a poor animal's life. I believe in style that has a conscience. We are in 21st century where technology has advanced immensely, there are myriad options available and any person with a desire can make things happen. So it is sheer selfishness and irresponsible behaviour when people make unethical fashion choices. Through StyleDestino I share everything cruelty-free and ethical in my style. I do not use any handbags, shoes or accessories made from leather (animal skin), the make-up I use is also vegetarian and cruelty free. Luxury and compassion can coexist stylishly and Style Destino is an attempt to prove just that. Vegan fashion is not about dowdy clothes, cheap bags, or tawdry shoes. I can just easily be vegan and trot in my Olsen heels, sporting a Stella McCartney luxurious vegan handbag while showing off my red lips painted with OCC lip tar!! I travel the world around and never find dearth of stylish, high quality vegetarian fashion.

Weekend Pampering at Jean Claude Biguine Juhu

Shopping was planned on Saturday, but after a late Friday night was just lazing around all day. The thought of being home all day on a Saturday spooked me so I thought of going out someplace that won't break the hibernate mode I put myself on.

I thought of pampering myself and immediately called Jean Claude Biguine for an appointment, as it was the easiest being the closest. And hey what can be a better place for a good manicure than a French salon? Was happy to be immediately given a slot.

How did it go? The short review - it was alright but I did come home with happy feet and hand. For an eloborate version of my experience, read on.

The pristine white interiors and courteous staff immediately gives a feeling that you're in a plush salon. Unlike some of the other places, where the staff think of themselves as mighty and high (why do they do this is beyond my understanding as I don't think scaring away the clients is their intention), JCB had a friendly staff who promptly seated me at their pedicure-manicure space and started off with the service without wasting any time. How was the experience? I was sat down having my hands soaked in hot water, my nails stripped down and buffed, cuticles removed, hands massaged and nails painted faster than you could say big bawls. Literally. And even the polish was so quick that it occurred to me later that it wasn't finished with the top coat. Pretty much same for the feet.

I know I opted for the regular pedicure and manicure, but this was the first time it was so quick and felt lacked something. Something about it was not right. Pretty much everywhere I have been for my mani-pedis, including my regular joint, it has always been relaxing leaving me pampered with pretty hands and soft feet.

Another funny thing was - to soak my hands they gave a very small container which was a real struggle. I literally had to make a fist to ensure the palm and fingers are dipped properly, which was really inconvenient and uncomfortable. When I mentioned it, the guy who did my manicure said, 'we hear that a lot from clients, but this is what the management has provided'. Duh!!!! If the clients are complaining, aren't you supposed to fix it?

Despite everything, I was happy to see how my hands and feet looked once it was done. In fact, just to make up for the unsatisfactory service I thought of brightening up the mood with hot pink on my fingernails and a different colour on my feet - deep purple, which was a total shock even to me, as I usually go something from the nude palette. Both together cost me Rs 1210.

Here's what I got

What I wore to the pampering session?

The whole day went out lazily, and wanted to play dress up. But after gazing at my wardrobe for a very long time I decided to wear something which had 'not been worn much' and had been long forgotten, and suddenly this charcoal grey pencil skirt caught my attention. When I joined office, I was so excited to dress up and try something different every day, and this skirt was one of the few items I bought. But soon the reality shot my face - Mumbai's financial district is no Canary Wharf of London and if I wanted to be taken seriously I will have to focus more on work and negative on my wardrobe. So this poor skirt had been long lost and forgotten due to the labelling 'formal'.

I wanted an effortless stylish look which was dressed-up and dressed-down at the same time, if you know what I mean. It had to be comfortable and casual yet stylish. So I decided to pair a colourful striped tee with the skirt and layered it with a lacy shrug. Picked my blue wedges to add height to my petite figure and add some more colour to tone down the formalish look of the skirt.

Now that I put together this look I am amused with myself. It took me just few minutes to put this look together and I never thought a formal skirt could score well on the casual meter.

What was I wearing:

Striped Mango Tee, Benetton Skirt, Esprit Bag, Nine West wedges and Tag Heuer Watch

Lesson learnt - experiment more and you will be surprised with the results!!!
Location is : Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
