#LBBCurates: The Best Of Online Stores To Hit Up This Week
A brand by Riya Bakliwal, Papeljam features original artwork and illustrations on stationery and lifestyle products — such as clocks, notebooks and planners. There’s nothing generic about the designs, too — their first collection showcased wild animals doing some very human things— there’s a lion lifting a barbell, a bear twirling away in a tutu skirt and ballet shoes, and a fox doing some yoga. Pretty neat, eh? You can also customise your own notebooks or even bags here!
Price: Starting at INR 250
2AM By Anajali & Meha
The founders of 2AM have got the bag trend on point. Wallets, clutches, totes, backpacks — you name it they’ve got it. Their transparent plastic handbags are pretty much perfect for the approaching monsoon, giving a peek into what the bag contains, while shielding it from the rains.
They customise bags, too! Want a passport holder with your name on it? They’ll do it for you.
Price: Starting at INR 600 for a clutch
The Sole Sisters
These guys marry leather and gorgeous Indian fabrics so beautifully, it makes us want to cry. We were ooh-ing & aah-ing over all the footwear on their Instagram feed and now these are officially on our wish list! You can check out their collection on Instagram or ask them to send you a mail with their full catalogue!
Price: On request
Hair accessories are all the rage RN, we're obsessing over basically everything we put in our hair as kids; tic tac clips, headbands, all of that. Their entire website will low-key overwhelm you with all the options but seriously, there's no such thing as too many hair ties (because they disappear faster than they get delivered.)
Price: Multipacks start at INR 150
This e-store is the "aanswr" to the daily 'what-do-I-wear' dilemma. They've got tons of pieces that can be styled in a 100 ways so you can make your own capsule collection. This store should definitely be on your radar if you don't like flashy clothes or like to take an outfit from 0 to 100 with statement jewellery. They have not-so-basic basics like tops and shirts, and dresses and pants.
Price: INR 2,490 onwards
