Review- Fashionably Yours by Swati Sharma


“Maya Kapoor swaps the snowy mountains for the glittering ocean.”

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 favour. 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.


Fashionably Yours looked like a really cute read and that is the reason I picked it up when I got the opportunity to read and review it. It is the story of Maya and how she lives in Mumbai with her dreams of making it big at a high-end fashion magazine.

Maya is our protagonist. Maya was a really nice person at heart and the situations she got herself into were hilarious. I did find Maya to be judge mental and easy to jump to wrong conclusions at times but her heart was always in the right place. When Maya meets Aryan things suddenly seem to be looking up where her love life is concerned.

I liked how things with Maya were shown where her job was concerned. Things didn't magically fall into Maya's lap and she had to work hard and find ways to keep herself from drowning in her credit card bills. The romance side of the plot was cute but I did wish we'd got a little more depth where Aryan was concerned.

I absolutely loved Maya's best friend Anu. She was an amazing girl and a best friend anybody would be lucky to have. She was always there for Maya come what may. When Maya's younger sister decides to get married Maya seems to be getting ambushed from all sides. I liked how Maya's family was shown complete with the melodramatic mother and sister and understanding father.

There were a few typos in Fashionably Yours which unfortunately deteriorated my enjoyment of the book. I liked the attention to detail which the author provided and overall Fashionably Yours turned out to be a cute, light and quick read.

  1. I used to love this kind of stories when I was teenager, actually anything involving fashion, but nowadays, not so much.
