Christmas is upon us and I couldn’t be happier. It’s the best time of the year for so many reasons. Holidays, weddings, parties and winter. Let’s not forget the good food and family get together's. And the best thing of all? Shopping for these occasions.
By the end of you the year you have exhausted almost every piece of party wear in your wardrobe. And now it’s time to restock. This is how usually it works for me. I shop the most during the months of November and December because it's wedding season and Christmas and New Year and so many more parties. Gotta love December.
December is expensive too. So many parties to go to and only so much money to shop with. So in college I started street shopping and its been the best. Not only for casuals but for arty clothes too. Now we have the internet to help us out and it's been nothing but a blessing for us shopping junkies.
So I am going to list the streets where you can go to shop and some great finds on the internet that will save you some time this Christmas. I've got shoes, clothes and accessories all covered. Stay trendy on a budget.
There are so many streets for us shopaholics to go to but only a few of them suitable for Christmas Shopping. So I have narrowed down the list to only the places where you can get party wear.
Hill Road and Linking Road in Bandra
These two streets in Bandra are must visit places every December. Not only do they have trendy casuals the shops have a great collection in store just for Christmas. You can get amazing dresses, skirts, tops and shoes to go with them. All within a budget of Rs.2000. Hill road also has shops inside the markets for materials. A huge selection to pick from in case you want to get your outfit stitched.
- Lokhandwala Andheri
Lokhandwala in Andheri is a very long street lined with shops and boutiques on both sides. They have a good collection of clothes throughout the year. This street is a little pricey but that's what bargaining is for. Haggle your way until you get the price you want.

After I have picked my outfit and shoes, I go to Colaba Causeway to buy my accessories. Causeway is accessory heaven and you can’t just stop at one. You many options to pick from.
