Hey Ansh, what a lovely giveaway :) Thanks to you & for sponsoring it.
Well, I’m an avid online shopper, once I start to shop, I don’t stop lol, it’s true. If you ask me to show you my screenshots of my order history from fashionandyou, I’m sure you’ll be tired going through all the orders that consist of some 9 odd pages & now I need something new. Anyway coming back to the website, – All the dresses are undoubtedly beautiful & i like how they’ve named each dress, maybe they’re named after actresses! :) I’m already deciding on what to order, the collection is so fresh & unique :) My utmost favorite dress is Christina. Priced at Rs 1950! I absolutely LOVE this dress. The fine detailing all over, the copper sequin work, the shiny copper colour, the shaping & cut is magnificent. This time around I’m all for sequins :) I love how it has a deep U-shaped cut at the back whilst maintaining the neckline covered, that way it’s classy as well as glamorous! :D And hey, you know what? It’s “perfect” for a Diwali or an engagement party, just throw over some sexy black leggings & i’m done. Also I can use it to tuck it into my jeans or skirt, haha I’m stunned at it’s transformation powers & the fact that I can get SO much use out of this dress! It can be dressed up & dressed down. That’s what I love about this dress.:)

Thanx for such a gorgeous giveaway !! Yey !! i so wish to win :)

My choice of dress –
Donna –

reasons- It is a more like summer dress. It has V neck which would divert the attention from my waist line and also give a illusion of height ! It has a A-line cut, which is again good to camouflage the tummy flabs !
While rest of the collection has more like off shoulders and halter neck (which i won’t be able to carry off in public) , this dress is sleeveless but suits my comfort levels ! :)

I also loved the other white dress- Diana, but dismissed for the teeny bit of skin show ..and you need to have perfectly toned shoulders for that !

u r right…i girl never has enough dresses ;) so i also wish to add one more in my wardrobe :)

Liked both the FB pages ….

Among all the attractive dress, i got struck towards Scallops Cranberry (

I loved this dress for the cut-work done so neatly on the fabric as well as my favr8 color. Moreover this kurti is perfectly suitable even to be worn at my workplace & in that case i need not to wait for an occasion to wear my adorable dress as i’m often too busy to go out for masti.
Most importantly, i completely believe in carrying myself comfortably rather than following fashion blindly just to win the race. And Scallops Cranberry is the dress that scores FULL MARKS as per my criteria :)

I have Like’d both of your pages (Facebook name: Leslie Marie Doser). Three years ago I decided to be a stay-at-home to my three beautiful girls. I knew this would mean making sacrifices, but it was worth it. Part of the sacrifices meant little to no clothing allowance. So, it has been quite a while since this Mama has had anything new, let alone anything like a dress. :) So, winning this would be amazing! It would be great to have something to wear that is not maternity… Thanks for considering me!

Reply' Ishy November 11, 2012 at 6:21 am

they have a great collection, no doubt.
why this? it’s so bright, quirky and fun. I just have the right pair of stilettos I bought recently to go with these. :)
Plus, this dress would put that “night-out and pub-disc” dilemmas out..

Hi There :) First of all thanks for organizing this dress contest this Diwali to make our Diwali more special and beautiful …Happy Diwaliiiiiiiii

“Cyndie” LINK–

BECAUSE –i LIKED THE patterns and color of DRESS WHICH is vivid and detailed..and enhances the beauty of it…and most importantly it has the universal characteristic of adaptability that makes it look good on everyone irrespective of size and weight, I think it works because it has straight fit till waist and gets fitted in thigh area that gives a flattering shape..It has elegance and style that can turn a simple girl like me into diva..and dresses like this are very rarely available..when i saw it first time on the site i fell in love with it…as its black color and shape is so appealing and jaw dropping i could not resist my self seeing it again and again more over i have pear shaped figure so its gonna make me proud..

Hope to get lucky as i never win :P but still its fun to be around at least in this way we can fancy our desires and present our state of mind and wish for something good to happen :)

It’s also suitable for work as well for evening.This top is my favourite also because I have been searching for something like this for a long, long time!

Reply' SarahO November 12, 2012 at 7:21 am

First of all, thank you for this awesome give away! I literally love every single piece on :) It was so hard to choose just one dress, but if i had to it would definitely be “Christina”
One word comes to my mind when i see this dress, WOW!!!! It’s beautiful and sparkly and oh so glamorous! The copper sequins, the low cut back, the length.. It’s one of those PERFECT dresses that is so rare to find. It’s also so perfect for this festive season. It doesn’t even need fancy accessories or jewelry :) It’s so perfect on its own!! All it needs is a pair of nude pumps or peep toes :) I’d love to wear this dress on my birthday, the 10th of December :D
This dress is to die for ;)

First of congratulation Aaliya on your launch. Love the clothes

If I’d have to pick one dress that I would love to win (which btw is really difficult cuz everything seems great) it would be – the white mesh and red satin lining dress.

It’s an absolutely gorgeous dress which I see myself dancing in when disco dewaane is playing at some party.
Since its mesh fabric I know am going to be absolutely comfortable and that dress will go absolutely well with White pumps or silver flats.
