I also promised you that I will share the event on next blog post detailing what happened there!
Unlike many other cities of India where bloggers are getting enough opportunities and networks to work with and evolve, Kolkata in parallel is lagging way behind and brands like Sassy Stripes can act like a filler in that void.
So let us learn a bit about the fashion brand – Sassy Stripes before we go ahead.
ABOUT Sassy Stripes:
A newly launched Women Fashion Brand, started their journey last year in the month of November, because of their unique positioning of their fashion products (which includes Outerwear – Dresses & Jumpsuits – Top – Bottom ) and their sincerity their journey has been good and steady till date, I believe.
The fashion brand is driven by three women entrepreneurs – Monika, Karishma and Pooja.
What differentiate Sassy Stripes from other lifestyle/fashion brands:
After interacting with the team and my fellow bloggers at Story Bookstore(the venue of the event), I feel when a girl shop at another online store, she may get a seasonal discount and end up buy a dress at a range Rs. 500 to Rs. 800 but had to compromise with the quality or the trends quotient in most cases.
So, as a Bengali’s mega festival coming near can you guarantee the girl will get a traditional dress in accordance to her appropriate choice – regional culture – type? I really doubt !!
Here, Sassy’s unique and custom fashion wears come into play. The reason you need to visit their web store before the occasion is simple, they have a wide variety of imported quality outfits yet offering style the girl next door would feel comfortable to wear.
Well, are you feeling cornered? Wondering the price would be high !!
Trust me, they are not. Sassy Stripes dresses and accessories are available without burning your pocket.
The fashion products start at a price Rs. 899. I believe considering the quality, unique look and comfort it worth paying every penny.
Well, there is an exclusive surprise for you from my side and Sassy. Please be patient till the end and we are almost there.
Design matters and Sassy Stripes understand it better:
At the end of the session I took a close look at the dresses displayed at the back end of the floor.
See below for some of the glimpses of those outfits displayed for us.
I even consulted some of the finest fashion bloggers on the floor to approve my view and all I can conclude is that the designs are mostly trendy – eye catchy and another fashion blogger – Sumelika (now my friend) also feels,
“Their style of clothing are inspired by the designs at Fashion Weeks.”
The USP of Sassy Stripes is the balance between the imported trends and the touch of innovation keeping in mind the shape and comfort of Indian women.

The Roundup Discussion on Whatsapp group -#SassyKolkataBloggers:
As an extension of this blog post, I wanted to honour the last #SassyKolkataBloggers Meet, so I had created The Roundup Discussion on Whatsapp and invited the participant fashion bloggers, friends and team Sassy.
So, below are the questions I have had asked and following to that are the responses I got.
As Bengali’s mega festival – Durga Puja is coming near…
We all are excited, gearing up and must have different plan in accordance.
As we all are expecting to make this event(Durga puja) most exciting and memorable unlike before…
- #1. What fashion wear(in general- male/female) do you suggest us that will be comfortable and worth praising?… it better if you suggest based on current trends.

Ans 1) Fashion Wear: I am a lover of tradition, be it Indian tradition, or Western tradition. I am the type who will wear a Saree or a Lehenga to a Bengali wedding and a formal or cocktail dress to a Christian wedding. So needless to say I always wear ethnic wears during the puja days (mostly when I’m at my hometown). However keeping the Kolkata pandal hopping rush in mind, Saree is out of the question. I would go for skinny fitting jeans or a jeggins and a funky cape or a shrug (depending on the weather) with a top.
Ans 2) Food: Santa’s Fantasea or Mrs Magpie
Ans 3) Makeups: Start with a clean canvas. Use a good primer so that the makeup doesn’t get messed up. Wear a lightweight foundation (cushion compact if it’s daytime). Go with usual festive makeup routine just keeping in mind that it doesn’t get messed up

Ans 1) Fashion Wear: I would wear some solid colour and pair it up with a colourful printed maxi skirt or palazzo pants. It’ll have the indo western vibe to it and will be easy breezy for the weather.
Maybe wear an elegant dress for dinner if much pandal hopping is not involved
Ans 2) Food: Also I think puja is the best time to cheat on your diet so people should try Calcutta street foods as much as possible and for meals some authentic Bengali cuisine restaurant
Ans 3) Makeups: Makeup should be minimum and light since the weather is very humid.
A little touch up with a bright colour lipstick and kohl is perfect

Ans 1) Fashion wear: The trend that should hit the Durga puja this year are the dhoti sarees…actually wearing a Saree in dhoti style…it’s a perfect blend of Indian and western attire…not only is this stylish but also comfortable
Ans 3) Makeup: Boys usually don’t like wearing makeup…but one-time application of a compact powder can actually help them…it will make them look fresh and will also get rid of excessive sweating.
