Oh Hello …. 2 . 0 . 1 . 6.
BUT first let’s properly bid adieu to 2015. I am going to be ridiculously honest and say that 2015 was definitely NOT my favorite year. Hence, I am extremely grateful for every given moment I embraced confidence within, stepped outside of my boundaries and stumbled upon lessons to literally last a lifetime. Now, walk down memory lane with me as I share some of my favorite stylish and candid moments of 2015! 🙂
– VEGAS BABY! –
Started the year on a rather fabulous note by making a quick stopover in the city that never sleeps. Special shout out to my ‘24 Hour Survival Guide’; I really don’t think I would have been able to make it through an entire day without you! 😉
– A QUARTER OF THE CENTURY –
I was kidnapped and taken to Seattle, Washington to celebrate ‘The Fab 25’ with my significant few! My friends gifted me with a scrapbook, a vacation with Carnival Cruises and an overall celebration that will forever go down in history. The picture above is a favorite from the weekend and one that truly speaks for itself. Don’t you think?!
– THE TIME I WORE A MINNIE MOUSE SAREE! –
When the veteran of funky prints, Masaba Gupta, bids farewell to her days at Satya Paul; she must leave an everlasting imprint and boy did she ever with #MONOPOP (A line inspiring Disney’s finest mascots – Mickey and Minnie Mouse) AND of course I jumped the bandwagon and bought myself this beauty.

– THE TIME I WAS ‘STREETSCOUTED’ –
They say the best style is always on the street and I say HELL YEAH. Captured sporting all fierce shades of fusion amalgamation with the side kick, Jason Pillay before attending Shravan Kumar‘s ‘Tribes of India’ fashion showcase.

– GOLD AND BLACK ERRYTHANG OOTN –
I can definitely say I completely outdid myself with my ‘Opening Gala’ outfit for the #SS16 season of Vancouver Fashion Week. Shoutout to Brandi Watkins for slaying my glam up for the evening and of course PARVESH JAI who designed this brilliant jacket, which by the way I own 😉

– BEST VACATION EVER!! –
The most surreal and relaxing vacation on Carnival Cruise Ships from LA – Catalina Island – Ensenada, Mexico. Let’s just say food galore, infinite alcohol, substituting my under garments for my swim wear, epic conversations and no service whatsoever. Absolute bliss.
– BLAST FROM THE PAST BOLLYWOOD DIVA MOMENT –
I was granted the wonderful opportunity to co-host a ‘Sultry Sixties’ launch party for PARVESH JAI‘s novelty boutique space: RAASLEELA and I truly embraced the 60’s era of style into my outfit for the evening.

– MY FIRST INSTAGRAM GIVEAWAY –
Conveyed my LOVE for MAC lipsticks by hosting my first ever giveaway via Instagram (@sonamnaidu). Grand prize was 5 #MACXGBV lipsticks.

“I’ve got this thing for genuine, creative souls who walk with their heads in the clouds, feet on the ground and eyes on the prize …” I will forever cherish the epic memories created when ‘Mumbai Met Vancouver’

– MY RUNWAY SPOTLIGHT-
After the grand success of PARVESH JAI‘s fashion show at the first ‘Dristhi Awards Gala’ in which I played the role of the backstage coordinator and assistant stylist, I too had my 30 seconds of fame sauntering that catwalk.
