Aah, sweet November! There’s something so special about this time of the year. Although I’m a summer baby, I think the festivities make up for the lack of sun. Every year ends with a bang with these two eventful months. No brownie points for guessing what my favourite part of all of this is. Dressing up, of course!
No matter how much I shop or plan, the inevitable ‘I don’t have anything to wear’ chaos always settles in before the party. The fairy godmother in disguise during these panic attacks has got to be F for U.
F for U is India’s first luxury rental portal - I think they had me at that first sentence! The brand launched just recently and honestly I couldn’t think of a better time for it to happen. With all the parties to attend, we could all use some help! The concept behind the brand is to be high on style while being easy on the pocket.
With an eventful weekend coming up while in the midst of an unbelievably busy week, panic had struck me. I needed an outfit fix and I needed it fast! To my surprise, the process of placing the order was so simple and it reached me just in time. I placed the order on Friday evening and a carton full of lustful goodies was in my room by Saturday afternoon. So let me take you through my weekend lookbook with F for U!
Saturday night out in an all black ensemble - it doesn’t get more classic than that! The gown caught my attention as soon as I saw it on their website and I was only waiting for the right occasion to pull off this black beauty. The mesh detailing makes it far from boring and adds that slight edge to the outfit. The Chanel sling, an all time fashion favourite, was my accessory pick for the evening. Messy hair, almost no makeup and an extravagant outfit to contrast it, definitely set the mood for glamourous and hazey Saturday night.
After that long night out, getting out bed is hard enough, let alone planning your entire brunch outfit. Nothing like having an ensemble ready to be worn way in advance. This lace dress was all things perfect for a happy sunny brunch. The nude Gucci bag definitely accentuated the feminine flirty look without taking away from the dress. The colours and the style made this an outfit I’d love to watch the sun go down in.
I am not someone who is extremely brand conscious but the idea behind F for U is something that I love. What one would spend on a dress normally, can be spent on getting a designer gown for any special event. For those of you who aren’t big on renting out clothes, like me, there’s always the accessories to look out for. Sometimes, you have a special outfit that needs just the ideal bag to complete the look and that’s when a concept like this comes into play. I was highly impressed with the quality and the services of the brand and was tempted to just keep all the products!
The choice of collection at F for U I thought is not only fashion forward but very tasteful as well. There is a blend of western as well as ethnic pieces that is offered by the brand. I liked that all the pieces I selected were versatile and easy to play around with - be it dressing it up or down further. With festivals, the wedding season, Christmas, New Years Eve and many more events coming up, F for U has definitely got you covered for this action packed season.
So what are you waiting for? Get your festive season fix from F for U now!
