Luxury consultant and blogger, Sanjana Banaik of The Purple Window
knows all about keeping it fun and classy - she knows how to work the picture-perfect outfit, travel with an agenda and be a fun foodie, all at the same time. Her blog is a reflection of who she is and her quest for "all things beautiful" and that's why it's a treasure trove of interesting ideas and details. Whether she's carrying her precious Dior and flaunting her loubs in style, Sanjana surely recreates a different world in her blog, a world that is full of positive things and mostly happy ideas. P.S We absolutely love her bag closet. As she joins our POPxo Blog Network today, she tells us what makes her tick.
What sparked your interest in fashion?
With both my mom and dad being in the business, I have grown up surrounded by fashion. Be it things such as browsing international magazines at home as kid or having designers and buyers over for dinner.
What is your first fashion memory?
My great-grandmother used to dress up in a crisp white salwar kameez with silver buttons, leather ballerinas from Bally and hair neatly coiffed in a bun.
What is your personal style statement?
Clean, casual and comfortable. It has to be effortless otherwise it doesn’t work for me.
What made you take up blogging?
The honest answer is boredom. I had moved to a new city and didn’t know anyone, so I started writing about things I liked as a hobby and it just took off from there.
What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?
Stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.
