Postcards from Stylista


The monsoon has descended upon us, withholding none of it’s usual vigor. And while steaming cups of tea and scouring the far corners of the internet for chic rain gear can only go that far to keep us warm, nothing can shake the fact that a wet Monday looms drearily ahead.

Comforted by only our abilities to daydream, here are the destinations the Stylista team would escape to, given half the chance:


Avnish – Catalina Island

Thrill-seeker, adrenaline junkie and adventure lover, our CEO would embark on a spear fishing expedition on the beautiful Catalina Island, California with his closest friends.


Anjana – Goa

Our COO and Fashion Director would like nothing more than to embrace the monsoon in all it’s totality, taking long, peaceful walks on Goa’s rain-soaked beaches.


Amtosh – Ibiza

Clearly overworked, Amtosh chooses to de-stress by sleeping all day and clubbing all night in sunny party paradise, Ibiza. Cheers to his never-say-die spirit!


Tina – Milan

Tina dreams of expanding her wardrobe by shopping till she drops at Milan’s oldest and most architecturally enchanting mall, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.

Koh SamuiFinal

Aarthi – Koh Samui

Aarthi plans to kick back with a cocktail or three, then indulge in some water sports at celebrity vacation hotspot, Koh Samui.


Rebecca – Houston

Rebecca takes a romantic approach by opting to spend the days with her boyfriend in Houston. And with a southern accent that could make you swoon, who can blame her?


Anushka – Barcelona

Anushka wishes to soak in some culture as she stays dry at the Gaudi Museum in Barcelona, stopping afterwards for churros dipped in hot chocolate and some shopping at Las Ramblas.


Shamita – New York

Shamita loves the idea of getting her groove on to the world’s most famous dj’s at New York’s favourite electronic music festival, Electric Zoo.
