Phoenix MarketCity is undoubtedly Pune's favorite shopping destination and rightly so because it's the largest mall in the city and has the perfect blend of shopping, entertainment and dining. I recently took part in the ShopOlympics 2016 with a bunch of other fashion bloggers where we had to create as many summer looks as possible in 60 minutes in a budget of Rs 5000 ($75 only)! Definitely a challenge haha!
|Madhumita, Me, Natasha & Riya - The 4 bloggers who participated in ShopOlympics 2016|
We were four bloggers and got four different stores for the challenge. I got Pantaloons, a multi brand store which had a lot of options from their spring summer 2016 collection! I've always been a fast shopper so I found it relatively easy to create a bunch of looks. What surprised me the most is that I actually managed to create 4 looks within the budget and had enough time to goof around with mannequins too. The only downside is that I didn't carry my DSLR so my photos are kinda awful because they were clicked from my phone. Anyhoo, check out the looks I created -
Look One - Corporate Chic
This one's dedicated to all you corporate slaves out there. Just because you have a 9 to 5 desk job, it doesn't mean you have to dress boring. A half sleeved shirt and a pencil skirt make a comfortable yet cute office outfit.

Look Two - College Canteen
College days are a time to experiment with fashion! I teamed simple white tee with this adorable skort and knotted it up to convert it into a cropped tee. I also touched a mannequin inappropriately.
|This time I decided to spank the mannequin|
Look Three - Summer Soiree
I've always been a fan of all white outfits for summer and this tube top and palazzo pants combination is exactly what I would wear for a chic and sophisticated evening look!
|I look upset because I couldn't find a mannequin this time. Also, I look like I have a detachable tail!|
Look Four - Sunset By The Beach
Being a beach fanatic, I had to do a look dedicated to the ocean so I teamed this beautiful flowy aquamarine skirt with a crop top that's perfect for sunset on a beach resort.
After we all successfully completed our 60 minute challenge, all of us caught up for lots of candid photos. Overall, it was a great evening and ShopOlympics was great fun! It was awesome to see how creative we all got with all our looks given that we had a really tight budget. If you're looking to update your summer wardrobe, go to Phoenix MarketCity and you'll be amazed at the vast range of fashionable and reasonable options you'll find!
