These girls have chutzpah, a really unique sense of style and they're here to change your perspective on style. Meet the two brains behind The House of MISU blog, Summaiyya Patni and Mitali Sagar. What started out as a simple styling company called MISU ("Mi"tali and "Su"mmaiyya, geddit?) is now a company that branches into many things - Styling, primarily, and then, Events, Brand Collaborations, Photo Shoots and Social Media Collaborations. And these women really know how to keep it fun and stylish at the same time. And their blog is a reflection of who they are - easy-going, effortless and all-round awesome. This month, as they become part of our POPxo Blog Network, we had to quiz them on many things - beauty, fashion and life and their answers might just make your day. So read on...
Fashion is not something that you woke up to one morning wanting to pursue. It's something you are pretty much born with. It was evident from a very early age that we had fashion in our blood which made us more like sisters than best friends.
It's hard to pick a single instance - it wasn't like some sort of sudden enlightenment that led us into the club of fashion fiends. We always pursued style savvy looks and trends, even when in school. I suppose we would have to say the first fashion memory came before our 9th grade dance- we would get so excited looking for outfits that were uber stylish (for that time anyway)- that's something we remember since we were in school together.
We may not have always pulled a fashion career off at that point but the desire to do something in fashion was evident. We were always hungry to see what was happening across the globe and as we got older we got better at acquiring all this information and putting it to good use.
