I have to admit, the moment I got the invitation for the MissMalini Shoe Party, I was super stoked – not only did it give me a chance to break out my new shoes, but it also gave me the opportunity to ogle at some lovely ones at Pavers England, which just opened at Phoenix Mills, Mumbai. Spotted at the event were Manasi Scott, Nishka Lulla, Pallavi Sharda, Vaibhav Talwar, Sherry Shroff, Ashwin Musharan, VJ Manish, Juhi Pande and a brief cameo by Atul Kasbekar, which made my night (I confess, I’m an Atul Kasbekar fangirl). I’m pretty sure everyone at the event would agree it was a soleful experience, and to ensure you didn’t miss a moment, we’ve got all the deets for you! xoxo
Psst! Pavers England is located in the new wing at Phoenix Mills (next to Dominos) and also on Linking Road, Bandra
Loved these Pavers orange shoes! Orange is such a cheery colour and these looked really cute on Nishka Lulla :)
Manasi Scott was super sweet and drove all the way across town to pop in for a quick hello, can’t wait to see the shoes she picks on her next visit to Pavers England!
Also at the event was the ever lovely Pallavi Sharda, who seemed to be having a good time trying on these shoes. She asked for our opinion – the black pumps (left) or the nude ones (right)? We told her we preferred the nude ones – what do you think?
Here’s Vaibhav Talwar and Sherry Shroff showing off their Pavers picks – as you can see, it wasn’t just the girls who had a blast, the guys got into it too! PS, ever since my interview with him, I haven’t been able to stop gushing about Vaibhav (MissMalini will attest to that); he’s just really adorable, isn’t he? :)
Ashwin was a hoot as always and “posed nicely” upon request as you can see! Also remember MissMalini told you about Tanmay Bahulekar aka Microphon3? Well watch out because he’s got an album coming out very soon and you can catch his hit rap songs across UTV! He seemed stoked to be partying in a shoe store and made a request that the next venue should be something even more “out there” – like perhaps a chemist shop? *Lol*
Channel [v] VJs Manish and Juhi were their fabulous shiny happy selves as usual and Manish even bought a second pair of shoes he liked them so much. (Hahaha finally a boy who shops like a girl!)
A few of MissMalini’s favorite peeps were there too! Heena Jain aka The Kitchen Butterfly (who you’ll be seeing lots more foodie blogs from), Suresh Venkat always a happy face and the main anchor on Tech Toyz that MissMalini often co-hosts and Expat Unplugged Andrea Brown.
Atul had to rush off to a birthday party but stopped by to say hello :) sweet!
Now, we saw a lot of shoes being tried on this evening, but there definitely did seem to be one favourite. And that was this pair two-tones wedges!
It was the pick for Pallavi and Sherry, and we spotted Nishka trying them on too. Really liked these, and we even overheard MissMalini saying that she’d pick these wedges because they were unique!
If there’s one thing that makes an evening of shoes better, it has to be cupcakes! I love cupcakes and these ones by Rebecca Maria Vaz (from The Baking Tray) were just awesome (and they featured little shoes, how cool?!)
All in all, it was a lovely evening and a great opportunity to spread some shoe love! There’s nothing that makes you feel content like a good night out wearing fab shoes, so yay for MissMalini and Pavers England for putting together such a unique and awesome event!
