Q: Who are Payal and Priyanka?
Two friends who as cheesy as it sounds, have always been passionate about fashion and decided to get vocal. To get blogging.
When we first started blogging back in 07, we found there weren’t too many (dare we even say any) sites that catered to the Desi fashion scene. We quickly came to realize that there were many just like us out there who were looking to discuss and analyze celebrities’ sartorial choices, fashion faux-pas and the general happenings in the fashion industry. We found our niche and decided to call it home.
It hasn’t always been easy juggling our own active personal and social lives, day jobs, shopping jaunts and having to blog regularly every single day, but when it’s doing something that you love, it gets done.
Q: Why the blog? Why don’t we ever see ‘Hollywood’ stuff on it?
This blog came about because we never could really find a ‘Desi-centric’ celebrity fashion blog. And why no Hollywood stuff? Really, do we want yet another Hollywood celeb/fashion/daily dish blog?
Q: Why is my comment going into moderation or getting deleted?
You’d blush if you read some of the comments that make their way onto the site, so moderation is necessary.
Comments containing the following will not be approved.
1. Botox, plastic surgery related.
2. A person’s body type. (‘Fat’ is not acceptable, but saying ’someone doesn’t dress well for their body type’ is).
3. A person’s personal life is off limits including a person’s conduct/gossip/rumors.
4. A person’s religious beliefs or associations.
5. External links to other sites unless posted by us.
6. Containing remarks about a region, communities, etc.
Personal attacks, non-content related malicious comments, abusive language (towards the subject in question, other posters or writers), hate words, insensitive words, possible racist comments, implied or otherwise, and comments that are posted merely to instigate drama will get deleted.
Constructive criticism is always appreciated, as are opinions, just not the vile kind. We can handle the heat, (as you might have noticed by the undeleted comments) but lets leave out other posters and subjects in question. The comments have to be civil.
Q: How come some comments of mine make it and some don’t?
While some comment might have seemed harmless at first pass (to us or to you), can seem offensive to someone who reads it much later. As a rule, we will un-approve the new and the old comments and any comment that addressed the original one, to keep things fair.
Another reason might be, because of multiple posting. When a comment comes in, it comes with its corresponding IP address but often times some users to make their point far more ‘impactful’ might make the same comment in different words with different user names but their IP addresses remain the same…so we know its the same person! Most of the time we let that pass, coz it might be a public computer or in general harmless but when the comments get vindictive or too self-promoting, we approve one or two comments and not the rest.
At the end of the day, we use our discretion and be as fair as we possibly can.
Q: How come there are no pictures of either of you on the site? Will you show pictures of yourself here so we can see what you look like?
Considering this isn’t a personal style blog, no, you won’t see our pictures on here. But you are welcome to follow our personal Instagram pages for more!
