The Shoe Love

Blaming it on the new year for all the delay in my blog posts. This particular post was supposed to go up last month but due to some personal reasons, I couldn’t work on it as per the scheduled time.

There are times when you just walk into Zara to window shop and also memorise the style number (maybe if you are as crazy as I am). When you realise how expensive the new arrivals apparels and shoes are, you console yourself by coming back to the store during the sale time. I am one of them because sometimes Zara just has an insane price tagged to an extremely basic apparel or any random accessory. Zara shoes undoubtedly are tempting and one of a kind. Also, very expensive! While I was looking out for nothing in particular but something to buy, I saw this beautiful satin pointed heels in the corner. I picked it up and later kept it back exactly how it was showcased after checking the price and I told my heart I will be back at the end of season sale. Few months passed by and I had forgotten about it until my dear friend Satarupa from Fashion & Frappes returned from her United Kingdom trip wearing the same satin pointed heels but in green.

Guess what happened next?

And now, I was sure I wanted it by hook or by crook. The Zara store in Bangalore is 30kms away from where I stay and travelling all the way to the other end of the city just for a pair of satin pointed heels didn’t sound reasonable. Thankfully, Zara had just launched its online store in India thus the travel problem was solved. I rushed back home and opened my laptop to look for those beautiful heels on their website. You won’t believe what I saw! These beauties were on sale and it was half the price. God is kind!

And in less than five days these blue beauties were part of my life. In this post, the pictures speak of this shoe story.  Shot brilliantly by the photographer.

Into The Woods

There are times when you are all dressed up and the only thing you need is a good camera to show the outfit to your virtual friends via social media portals. Well, this was one of those days when I and Shivani Boruah of TheVelvetRadio decided to do this shoot for each other. Now the question was where? Because we were out of places in Koramangala specifically. Fortunately, Shivani lives in a fancy area which had a backyard that no one knew about. I followed her instructions and reached the spot. To my surprise, this abandoned backyard was perfect and exactly what I was looking for.

The preparation to shoot started. We clicked all the pictures with Shivani’s iPhone 8 plus and clearly it did a brilliant job I must say.

I always wanted a military jacket but it was either too expensive or always out of stock every time I looked for one. One day while I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, I came across Jabong’s offer on Only’s Military Jacket. The moment I read the discounted offer, I pulled out my card and bought it contentedly. I desperately waited for Jabong’s dispatch notification every day. This particular military jacket is an open jacket unlike the usual ones but I am intensely happy with my purchase.

The FabIndia kurta and straight pants paired perfectly with my military jacket. I accessorized the outfit with some tribal silver jewellery that I had bought from the streets of Hampi for dirt cheap price. Since the entire outfit was subtle and pragmatic, I decided to add a pop of colour by wearing a pair of bright yellow Kolhapuris.

Hope you like the way I have styled the jacket! Enjoy the pictures.

Would You Rather Rent It or Own It? | Rentomojo

We all know the trouble we go through just to find the right house to live in. Finding a semi-furnished house to live in is extremely difficult in metro cities leave alone furnished houses. People usually opt for a furnished house because in that case, they wouldn’t have to keep buying pieces of furniture and other household goods every time they shift. But, not everyone has the budget to rent out a furnished apartment, and that’s where Rentomojo comes into the picture.  

As kids, we were always taught to own and renting out something was looked down upon. Owning always brought in a powerful vibe in an individual. This was when an individual rarely shifted location and worked in an organisation for decades together. Times are changing rapidly. With an increase in the cost of living in India, young professionals are ready to relocate to any location that pays well. The current generation is not sure where their next job would land them in; doing up their new place with furniture bought on rent is not only the best option but also an easy way out. Especially in a place like Mumbai and Bangalore where the city is out of space, but the inflow of young professionals is indirectly proportional. 

Rentomojo is one-of-a-kind consumer product leasing business that raises lease-capital from financial institutions for products rented to consumers for long-term periods. This not only provokes the consumer to extend their rental tenure but they also have an option of owning the products, making a lot more financial sense. Rentomojo has recently announced an exciting scheme of Rent-To-Own, where now the customers will be able to rent till whatever time they want, return or own the products. 

Homepage - Rent to Own Copy 5@3x

Founded in 2014, Rentomojo started as a rental business, and since then it has evolved as an economic industry that uses technology to make financial services more efficient. You ask for it, and they have it all. The customers can rent furniture, appliances and two-wheelers by paying an extremely affordable RMI (Rental Monthly Instalment). With the new proposition of ‘Rent-To-Own’, the customers can now own it. In case, while renting out a particular service, the customer wants to own, the same can be done after paying some RMIs. 

Geetansh Bamania, CEO & Founder, Rentomojo said, “Usually renting is considered for a longer duration. A lot of customers also get a strong sense of ownership once they buy the products. What we also realised is that, although the perception of renting could be for a smaller duration, the average rental tenure of our customers is 12-18 months, which itself makes us very different than a typical rental model. With an option of owning if the customer wants to after he has rented, where he is paying a nominal RMI, is a certain new way of ownership and that certainly makes us different than a usual renting company.”

The first thing that comes to my mind when I say “rental” is home, but Rentomojo has changed the rental game in India by catering to the correct demographic. Rentomojo has decided to take the burden on them instead and let us rent or own whatever we need. 

Rentomojo recently organised a bloggers meet in Bangalore at Ramada for Bangalore-based content contributors and lifestyle bloggers were the idea and concept was introduced to the mixed audience. Mixed audience because there were few who have never thought about renting out furniture, vehicles or appliances. Rent-to-Own is a wonderful option for people like them who are sceptical to rent out the items they provide. This scheme helps you try and test the product for few months on a rental basis and then own it if you like it. It’s a win-win! Not just that, Rentomojo also offers free maintenance, swapping of products and relocation.
