We know that the B-townies live by the mantra that life is too short to wear boring clothes. The new era of fashion dictates that individual and personal sense of style play includes all that’s in vogue – the classic labels, high- end, low-end and some of the exciting upcoming and home-grown brands. While, money can’t buy happiness but it sure as hell can buy a whole lot of clothes, shoes, bags, beauty products and the works! For mere mortals, usually, our splurges go hand-in-hand with a deal or a sale. But the tinsel townies regale us with their super fancy splurges and each week, we curate the ones that feature high on the luxury list and some that can be deemed as modest. This week saw Alia Bhatt lead the splurge race with a flashy red Prabal Gurung dress. She was followed by Janhvi Kapoor whose red separates spelt chicness; Priyanka Chopra brought back the Harem pants in fashion in a much-loved mustard colour. Varun Dhawan’s snazzy bomber jacket too fetched him spot in the splurge list. Meanwhile, what could be deemed as modest purchases were those of the new kids on the block – Kapoor cousins Khushi and Shanaya and the soon-to-debut Sara Ali Khan.
