My Collaboration With Max Fashions

Recently I got the opportunity of doing a lovely collaboration with Max Fashions – UAE’s very own homegrown brand.

Max stores are a one-stop destination for everything and anything you wish to shop for – clothes, home ware, kids’ wear and toys, make up, accessories and what not. And what  makes shopping all the more fun in a Max store is the easy navigation, gorgeous display and the helpful personal assistance you get in there.

Talking more about the collab, I was lucky to get a sneak peak into Max’s Ramadan Collection this year and what was a lot of fun was to capture the accessories from the collection through my lenses.

Earrings, necklaces, bags, hats, goggles – I picked a whole lot of lovely stuff from their lovely collection available across Max stores at reasonable prices.

Sharing some of my favourite picks from Max –


Red bag with golden details

This gorgeous Red bag with golden details. This bag was love at first sight for me – the colour, the structure and the size makes it the coolest accessory to jazz up any of your outfit this summer. Isn’t it really pretty?




Earrings are to women what ties are to men. Being a self-admitted earrings-hoarder, I could not resist myself from picking this simple yet classic pair of reverse earrings from Max. I loooooove the combination of Wine Red with Gold to add a touch of both colour and elegance to your outfit. Isn’t it a beautiful colour-combo?

Embellished bag

Love myself a gorgeous embellished Red bag to put together a festive look together or to just lift up a simple outfit and this lovely bag from the Ramadan collection of Max is just perfect for that. Isn’t it oh-so-pretty?

Max has gorgeous summer hats, sunnies, jewellery and a whole lot of makeup from popular brands like Maybelline, Rimmel and Max factor.

Love this silver watch – so chic and classy!

So hope you liked my faves from Max. If you wanna shop any of these pieces, visit your nearest Max store or shop online at

{EVENT} Charming Charlie Store Launch@Ibn Batuta Mall

They say that accessories are the exclamation of a woman and how we so agree. Don’t we?

If you follow me on my Instagram/Snapchat/Twitter (@ChandniLahoti), you so know my neverending love for jewellery and bags.
Well, my husband calls it never-ending greed. (winks)
So, I could not stop jumping around in joy, when the famous US accessories brand, ‘Charming Charlie’ launched its store in our very own Sheikhland.
Known for their very trendy yet reasonable line, I absolutely love the way they offer a whole variety of accessories merchandised by colour.
It’s a one shop stop for fashion jewellery, handbags, small leather goods, scarves, watches, sunglasses, select footwear and apparel, a special occasion collection, and more.
I am presenting to you a glimpse of my faves at the store launch which is in Ibn Batuta Mall.
I loved this pair of bangles – Rose gold with just the right amount of glitter.
And for those who love chunky pieces, look at this –
There was a whole array of choices for earrings.
… and many amazing necklaces too.
The best part about the store is that you pick any colour and you have a big section dedicated to accessories in that particular colour.
So, all you accessory-lovers, get ready for spoiling yourself at Charming Charlie because there is nothing as too many accessories.
Until my next post,

{Event} Launch of Shoe Gallery in Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi

Life is too short to wear ugly shoes and if you are headed on the hunt for that perfect pair of yourself, Shoe Gallery is the place for you.


Shoe-heaven, quite literally, the newly opened Shoe Gallery added another feather to the rather glorious cap of the Club Apparel group.

Located in Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi, the store was inaugurated on the 3rd February 2016 by nine other than H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al-Nahayan in a grand launch event.
Yours truly, along with all the popular bloggers of the Sheikhland took a Limo ride upto the venue, courtesy Apparel group. If you follow me on Snapchat, you know what a fun ride it was and if you don’t yet, add me at @ChandniLahoti to get live updates of such fun events.
But what added to all the excitement, was the massive Shoe Gallery store spread across two levels boasting a collection of over 100 fashion brands under one roof.
What I really loved about this store that it is just not offering the in-house brands of the Apparel group like Pedro, Charles and Keith, Aldo, Dune London etc but alongside offered some other popular labels such as Nike, Adidas, Guess, Ralph Lauren , French Connection etc.
Handbag hoarders and accessories-lovers  like me too are in for a treat with Shoe Gallery showcasing handbags and accessories from the best brands in the world.
Also one can get the stuff personalised or customised if they wish.
So, make sure you do check out this awesome store and do let me know how you liked it.

{EVENT} Liali Jewellery Celebrates 16 Glorious Years

Life is too short to wear boring jewellery and being one huge jewellery-hoarder myself, I was all excited to be attending the celebrations of 16 sparkling years of Liali Jewellery, one of the jewellery biggies in the Sheikhland. The event also marked the launch of their new store in Palm Jumeirah.
For me, another reason to be super excited about this launch was that the biggest Indian festival, Diwali is just round the corner and I heard that Liali has come up with a limited Diwali Special Edition.
What I really liked about the collection was that it is such a great mix of traditional as well as contemporary pieces, of heavy as well as the classic designs, of white diamonds to black diamonds. There is a stunning Red carpet collection too offered by the brand.
So, all you lovelies out there, if you love fine jewellery, Liali is worth indulging in!
Stay festive! Stay beautiful!

{FASHION LAUNCH} ‘Aranaz’ Tropical Handbags Launched in the UAE

I am obsessed with handbags. I can just never get tired of shopping for handbags and let me share a secret with you guys. smiles

The most number of fights that I have had with my husband is for nothing else but for my never ending romance with my handbags, that now probably need an entire wardrobe. wink

But hey, anything for the love of handbags! Don’t you agree?

And to add to my ‘Lust-Have’ List of handbags, there is a new international tropical handbag brand that has launched in the UAE that has had me all besotted and all you ladies, hold your breath, as the pictures in this post are definitely gonna make you drool. Aranaz – as lovely the name of this brand as was the collection which I was invited to have a look at the Riva Beach Club on the Palm Jumeirah.


I instantly fell in love with the handmade awesomeness.


Especially the clutches were really unique and classy.


The Aranaz collections are designed and created in the Philippines and sold worldwide, from New York to London, and now in the UAE.


Each bag is crafted using locally sourced products and specialised techniques such as woven sea grass, wood engravings and mother of pearl inlay.


The intricate and eye-catching designs make Aranaz bags a favorite among royals, celebrities and the jet-set.


Amina Aranaz, part of the mother-daughters trio behind the Aranaz brand and its collections, said: “We are thrilled to have a presence in the UAE. The country offers a great lifestyle for its residents and visitors with so many fashionable people who I think will be drawn to the unique offerings of our bags.

“What we offer are fun, statement pieces with functionality – a great addition to enhance any summer outfit,” she added.

The occasion was the launch of limited edition pieces by Kelly Townsend and Philippa Thackeray, the creative talents behind the Paper London Brand.


The fashionable high-tea party was hosted by Rosemin Manji and the collection was stunning with bright hues and interesting cuts to welcome summer in an uber stylish avatar.


The detailed work on the outfits was absolutely gorgeous.


I particularly love the statement accessories at Valleydez.


Spotted this Madonna clutch and it’s on my wish list now. How cool is it! What say you?
