Hello Readers !!!
Already feeling the winter chill with the onset of December? Time to pull out those fashionable winter wear lying in your closet and feel oh! so uber- chic!
Let’s give you a feel of it with the help of our sizzling December release by Swati Sharma titled “Fashionably Yours”.
What is the Book About?
Maya Kapoor arrived in Mumbai with a glamorous dream, quite literally. Maya wants to be a serious fashion writer for the high-end fashion magazine, Glamorous, but luck is not in her favor. Instead, she lands a job with a local fashion magazine, Style. Maya hates everything about it but for now this is all she has. Despite all the odds, Maya is excited about living an independent, fashionable life in the city of dreams.
At twenty-five, love has eluded Maya. But when she bumps into the dashing photographer, Aryan Malik, she falls head over heels for his gorgeous smile and charming manner.
But Maya seems to be stuck in a rut – her credit card bills are sky-high, her melodramatic mother can’t stop ranting, the boss is unbearably cruel, her younger sister has decided to tie the knot, and she’s not sure if Aryan could love a simple, confused girl like her.
Will Maya get the fairytale life she dreamed about or will she let everything slip through her fingers? Read her diary and find out.

A Sneak Peak into “Fashionably Yours”….
As I pulled it open, I felt my heart flutter at the sight of a crisp, white envelope which was going to take me a step closer to my dream. Gingerly I reached inside the envelope
and pulled out a letter. I read the job offer for the zillionth time since it had arrived last evening.
Dear Maya Kapoor,
Congratulations! We are pleased to offer you the position of ‘Feature Writer’with the online division of Style magazine. Please find the attached draft copy of your offer letter from Style, Mumbai.
Do go through the letter and let us know if you have any
queries with regards to the offer.
I had waited for this letter for far too long. Though Style was not my first preference, I realized that Glamorous wastoo posh to recruit someone straight out of Shimla College
of Mass Communication and Advertising. But at least Style was situated in the same city as my bible. For the last sevenyears I had dreamt only one dream, and that was to write for Glamorous. And for this I had fought a tough battle againstmy mom who was adamant to see me graduate to become aCA or a primary school teacher at the very least. Yuk! Accordingto her, no decent man would marry a girl like me who
had had a word ‘media’ written in her bio.
“Girls in media are considered to have loose character.You have landed yourself in a dark pit,” she grumbled in my ear as we posed for a family photo on my convocation.
Gazing at the letter in my hands I wonder if she would throw me out of the house, dragging me by my hair or have a minor panic attack when I broke the news to her.
Fifteen minutes later I was out of the comfort of my bed and ready to spill the beans to my parents. I just wanted to be over with all the drama as soon as possible so that I could finally celebrate my job with a tall cup of hot chocolate before starting to pack my stuff. Trotting along the creaking wooden floor I walked up to my closet and pulled out a jumper to slide over my old GAP T-shirt. It was freezing. It had been a
week and it hadn’t stopped snowing.
