Are you a shopaholic?
I'm a moody shopaholic – I just shop when I'm happy.

Your style statement?
I'm heavily into colour matching. I'm known for matching neutral colours with gold and silver. Both those colours rule my accessory list.

Is shopping a social activity or solo?
I enjoy shopping with friends. Inputs are always welcome.

Favourite shopping destination?
Several favourites - Dubai, Hong Kong and London. In Mumbai, I'm a loyalist of Kink and Sole To Soul in Bandra.

Are you impulsive shopper?
Unfortunately, no. I have to be really sure before buying anything.

How much do you splurge every month?
It's not a monthly ritual for me, but I'd say about Rs 20,000 on accessories.

An item you don't mind splurging on?
I don't splurge. I restrict my spending on shopping.

Are you brand conscious?
Sometimes, but if I like something and it's not a brand, I would buy it anyway.

Favourite clothing brand?
Zara, Prada and Gianfranco Ferre.

Favourite outfit?
Jeans and a top. I adore jeans.

The colour that dominates your wardrobe?
Black - it works well for me.

Favourite accessory?
My bling jewellery.

Best bargain?
I brought a lovely pair of golden ballerinas - they are soft and comfortable.

A luxury product you covet?
A green coloured Jaguar.

Favourite fragrance?
Be Delicious by DKNY.

Your recent pick?
An Ice Cube watch.

Did you go out intending to buy it?
(Laughs) It was a gift.
