In Conversation with the Dashing Deepali Kini

The ‘Wonder Woople’ series features users who are passionate about fashion or food or both. They are the people who spot new, interesting  things and love self-expression. They are our tastemakers, influencers and curators.

Deepali Kini was into advertising, before she became a fashion blogger at astateofstyle.com. She also blogs about food as is evident from her recommendations on Wooplr.

Deepali has been a Bangalorean for more than a decade now. In her free time she likes to bake, read (she’s a PG Wodehouse fan) and watch lawyer shows. She discovered The Practice - almost a decade after it went off the air!

She says she doesn’t cook, and only bakes. She puts it thus,

So, I make a mean red velvet cake. But I have no idea how to make dal :P

On fashion and trends:

I like style that is timeless. While I follow current trends, I am biased to clothes that will never go out of fashion. I follow a lot of street style blogs and prefer street style to editorial content.

We bumped into this fab Woople at the glitzy Kingfisher ULTRA Style Week and got down for a quick chat where fellow bloggers Ritu Arya was also present.

Here are excerpts from the interview (printed verbatim):

If you were given a choice between going Street shopping vs. Shopping at malls, which one would you pick?

A mix of both for sure! I can’t pick one :)

I love street shopping and  trips to Colaba and Hill Road are a must everytime I visit Bombay, but I can’t do without the Zaras and Mangos of the the world either.

What is the craziest thing you have bought?

I honestly can’t think of anything ‘crazy’ that I’ve bought. I’m quite boring like that :P

What is the most bizarre dish you have tasted?

Escargot (snails) would be the most bizarre dish I’ve had. They were squishy.

image

If you could splurge on one thing, what would it be?

I would definitely buy myself a new phone. My phone right now is a bit of a miscreant.


Which song is on loop on your iPod right now?

You wish by Nightmares on Wax

Your favourite shopping destination?

London, I suppose. Although I haven’t been (there) in a really long time. The shopping is amazing, but more than that, everyone on the streets is so impeccably dressed, it’s quite inspiring.

Who would you like to see most on Wooplr?

I would love to see what Anaita Shroff Adajania and Blake Lively are recommending.

Deepika Padukone too! Love their style.

image


If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

I would want a photographic memory.

Apple pie or Jalebi?

Jalebiiii all the way.

Beer vs. Whiskey

Whiskey.

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Chocolate. Vanilla never stood a chance.

image

Pretty Little Liars or Vampire Diaries?

Well, I have no idea what either show is about!

Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother?

Modern Family (*laughs*)

Shoes or Bags?

Ooh tough one…

Shoes.

Ryan Gosling or Zac Efron?

Ryan Gosling. Obviously.

What are your guilty pleasures?

Cheesecakes, red velvet cupcakes, and shoe shopping!
