Favourite shops in Delhi:
I am notorious for raiding thrift stores all over the city. I would definitely begin with Connaught Place, where one can literally find anything and everything with the best deals on ethnic wear, silver jewellery and Pashmina and Kashmiri shawls. Also I’m fond of shopper’s haven Janpath market. The Sarojini Nagar market is one of my most favoured places in the city to buy clothes and fabrics at unbeatable prices. And then there is Chandni Chowk, where I would definitely recommend places like Katra Neel for fabric and Dariba Kalan for silver jewellery.
I’ve never got the thing with brands and designers. When I see a garment, I know if it looks good or not, and a name on the price tag or a brand will not change that.
Most expensive item you own:
A diamond engraved heart shaped pendant set in gold that my father gifted to me.
A vintage inspired gold and purple amethyst necklace (Rs 2200). I had purchased it online from a blogger called Nicole Warne, who runs an online vintage store Garry Pepper Vintage ( www.garypeppervintage.com )
