Hello Everyone and welcome to STYLE OVER COFFEE!!

I am Sarmistha Goswami, a Fashion Designer by day and a blogger by night! I have always loved fashion, dressing up and feeling beautiful from inside. But having spent 3 years in a Fashion school (NIFT) and more than 11 years in the fashion industry as a designer has made me realise that just loving fashion in no way means knowing about it. Fashion is about being aware of the latest trends, knowing how to incorporate those trends to match your personality and feeling comfortable in being yourself. It is important to have a strong personal style that most of us tend to ignore and blindly copy the celebrities and the runway models.

But hey, relax!!! Before things get any more serious, Fashion is also about having fun, goofing up and learning from it 😉 So the best way to achieve the so called ‘my own style’ is to keep experimenting till you figure out the elements that are truly YOU!!!

My husband, Pankaj Jyoti Barua, is the co-founder and photographer of Style Over Coffee and has recently started publishing articles in the travel & lifestyle category of the blog. When not involved in Style Over Coffee, Pankaj works full-time as a Veterinarian and a Bio-informatician. Check out his Instagram Gallery!

STYLE OVER COFFEE is a Fashion, Style and Beauty  blog.
We started this blog because I simply love to talk about fashion and Pankaj is passionate about travel and photography. We found blogging to be a great platform to share our thoughts and inspirations and engage in our hobbies without disturbing our full-time professions. In Style Over Coffee we share personal styles photographs and write about fashion trends, DIY ideas, beauty tips, our travel chronicles and all things that are dear to us! We thrive to post quality content and photographs and aim at inspiring everyone to have fun with fashion irrespective of their age, size, color and body type and to get the best out of life.

We would love to hear from everyone.

For requests or information please visit our contact page.

Cheers!! 🙂

      Thank you! Followed you back too in all the social media links too! However, I am not able to follow your blog in WordPress. Everytime I click on the follow button it automatically gets unfollowed again 🙁 I think it is a technical problem and may be writing to WordPress would help.

        Thank you love! The only way you will be able to follow me on WP is by subscribing your email address on my main page. You will then need to confirm the subscription on your email account. The reason is because I am self-hosted and that is the only way WP followers can view my posts on their readers. Thank you for following! Have a great weekend! <3

    Hi dear? Thanks for liking my post `the hair diaries.’ I don’t write mostly about fashion cuz my blog is about writing on just about everything but on those rare occassions, i can do a little about fashion. Anyways, i always look up profiles of people who like my posts and i was taken away by yours. Awesome fashion sense and body you have. I also realized you are from Bangalore. My childhood friend of 8 years recently relocated completely to Bangalore India and she does love fashion a lot. i see it in her facebook pics. She did interior design in college and i think they run a business with her sister called PVT squares or PVT and squares ltd. if i aint wrong. So if you’ve seen something like it in your city, pop in and look for Amrith or Archana Kumar. They might be very interested in what you do and you can always say their friend Likiza from Testimony Primary School in Eldoret, Kenya referred you to them. I might as well follow you cuz i think your blog’s just too cool. Cheers!

    I love and appreciate everything you said about style and fashion. I think too many people follow others in terms of trends and don’t realize that it doesn’t match their body type or personality. Look forward to reading your stuff.

    Thank you ‘fashionista’ Sarmistha Goswami, although I have a suspicion you might now be feeling you maybe jumped in a bit quicker than you wanted!! And so very interesting to hear about your Husband, who you say is both a naughty dog and a pompous cat – I imagine you must have a lot of fun with him and I bet you he tires you out on the long walks you give him – there again, I bet his feline nature plays havoc with your curtains and balls of wool, assuming you have them – just as well you adore animals eh!! My lesser half doesn’t and she took me to the Vets one day when I was a little tipsy, took me to have me put down – luckily for me I escaped, but the RSPCA now have a warrant out on me! WAHEY & CHEERS!!
