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...

House of Misu

What sparked your interest in fashion and style?

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.

What is your first fashion memory?

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.

What is your personal style statement?

Mitali: Chic and experimental

Summaiyya: Classic and experimental

What made you take up blogging?

To be completely honest, we felt we had to since everyone was doing it. We were not particularly tech savvy at the time.

What would you like to tell all aspiring bloggers?

Think outside the box and be expressive. Talk about the non-obvious and if you must talk about the obvious, do it in an unexpected way.

We love being in pajamas and we are as comfortable at a bustling Mumbai market place as we are at a fashion showcase.

Each other and our followers... they inspire us and drive us to do more and do better.
