Jewellery is where I find my Identity - Nithya David

She spins the wheel of her dream, follows her gut strong, fly’s high being the wind beneath many wings and brings the warmth of being herself at any occasion. Meet Nithya David, founder of Upstream, a recruitment agency in Bangalore.

StyleAura®™ catches up with her and this is what she had to say about the Aura of her Style!

StyleAura - Woman Achiever Nithya David

"Listen to your instinct always. It is your third eye."

This year marks 10yrs of my company Upstream. When started my career I was asked what I want to be when I reach 30yrs of age and my answer always was to be a CEO of a company. Knowingly unknowingly I was spinning my dream and before I knew it at 30 I started UPSTREAM, a recruitment firm based in Bangalore. We do placements for advertising agencies and corporate houses across India. 

These last 10 years have been the best years of my life. I have learnt on the job and have taught myself. I work with corporates and advertising professionals, Heads of the agencies, Marketing Heads at FMCG companies, HR Heads across. When I meet people, I want to leave a lasting impression in their minds which is why I make sure that I present myself, my clothes, my jewellery with style and panache, as they say, "the first impression is the best impression"

I love wearing Maxi dresses and sarees, I find them very comfortable and it gives me a sense of power. Jewellery is where I find my identity. When a unique piece speaks to me it becomes my story. When I meet people they always ask me about my jewellery and I love to tell them how the jewellery found me. It’s not just wearing a jewellery but wearing it with the right outfit is what matters most, and the outfit always enhances the jewellery.

Jewellery adds that extra Flare - Shashwata Roy

Success to her is hard work with a sense of purpose in life. She believes in being powerful with big dreams than big facts. And she believes in Change, for the better.

Meet Shashwata, one of the finalist for Mrs India Earth 2017 pageant. Let's cheer her to win the title for the change she wishes to bring for the noble cause towards underprivileged. StyleAura™ catches up with her and this is what she had to say about the Aura of her Style!

 StyleAura - Shashwata Roy  StyleAura - Shashwata Roy

I was born in a family where birth of every girl child is considered a matter of pride and honour. I pursued my MBA in HR and Marketing and presently working for an MNC in Bangalore. I have always had that keen interest in the field of art and thereby live my passion as a freelance actor, model and a singer.

In my profession, I interact with people from all walks of life. I prefer wearing crop T-shirt and skirt on casual occasions. On special occasions, I prefer wearing typical classic traditional Saree with a pinch of serene Indian culture in it to showcase the authentic Essence of Indian beauty through my   dressing. It gives that feel-good factor.

Jewellery plays a significant role in anything I wear. Jewellery always adds that extra flare to one's dressing and enhances the elegance in you giving an outstanding feel to your entire. In my opinion style is something which we define for ourselves and it's a true depiction of the real person in us.

StyleAura™ caught up with Shreya at her cosy abode over Nannari Sherbet to talk about her Aura of Style…

My work takes me to multiple places and involves travel. I meet people across the board from CXO's and peers and my team, I am part of conferences that I attend or speak at or anchor, I meet my agencies and partners, I also meet my NGO partners and volunteers on a regular basis.

Since my work involves meeting a lot of people and being a part of events, I prefer to dress in a sari for formal gatherings. it's a versatile garment and takes you through the day and evening with just the right amount of style and elegance. Otherwise I more or less wear everything from dresses to skirts to trousers. I love the desiboho look which is a fusion of Indian and western styles.

Jewellery is a very important part of my styling routine. Jewellery accentuates style if it is with a sari or a skirt or whatever the attire it is that you chose to wear. I love boho jewellery and I love mixing up colours and styles. It helps curate multiple looks and also adds an element of oomph! You can tone up or tone down a look with just the right kind of Jewellery.

My comfort style is classic yet contemporary. I look at dressing everyday as an opportunity to   flex my fashion muscles and hone my professional personal brand.

A white shirt with boyfriend jeans in the daytime and a black dress in the evenings would be the unsung heroes of my fashion wardrobe. 

I adore Jewellery it adds variety to my outfits and sparkle to my style. I use jewellery to dress up or dress down my outfits depending on the occasion. I invest in quality pieces and prefer classic jewellery as it's more wearable and easier to combine. Jewellery augments my personal style. An eye catching accessory can be a point of emphasis and can give an outfit a finished look at the same time.
