Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is doing well with great health. IMG_7462-1 IMG_7470-1


Recently we got an opportunity to do a Lookbook post with Trendy Divva. They got a beautiful collection of dresses specially gowns.  When they asked me to pick up a dress for the Lookbook post, I could not help myself and I picked up this beautiful gown. The size fit perfect me and I fall for its sexy back. I love the material of the gown, which makes the gown looks so alive. I highly recommend you guys should definitely check our Trendy Divva’s collection (especially their gown section!).


Keeping the look minimal while styling the dress, I thought it would be great if I tie my hairs in a ponytail with my teardrop studded earring. Earlier, I was very scared of wearing red and always thought it would make my complexion look dark. But over the years, I realized that it’s not about the color it’s about the confidence!


Last couple of days, I was so traumatized because of the sudden earthquakes happening. Trust me it took away my sleep away and after going through the news about Nepal and some parts of our country makes me wonder, how humans are so fragile and weak. We can be each other’s strength, but still we flight for lands, money and property. I sometimes wonder, what will we get into it? Nothing! We all have to go alone. So, till the time we are here, we should spread the love and togetherness and should stop fighting. My prayers to all those who got affected by the earthquakes. Stay strong and everything will be ok.


Thank you so much for reading.

Summery Afternoon: Chambray Shirt and Black Shorts

Summery Afternoon: Chambray Shirt and Black Shorts

Hi Everyone!

Chambray is one of my favorite pieces of fabric. Because of its light weight, plain weave fabric and cool color it is best for summers, though you can wear it anytime as it look amazing and cool in any weather.

I have also posted a weekly tip on my blog couple of months ago on the lovely chambray ( Here ).




I was searching for a chambray shirt since I posted the weekly tip and finally got this (just the way I wanted) last month. It was way too bigger than my size but as I loved it so much, I bought it and got it altered to my size.


IMG_4382-1 IMG_4392-1

I kept the whole look very simple and chic by pairing the shirt with my black shorts, metallic cap-toe pumps and an updo bun. To give the whole look more elegant touch, I paired this amazing statement necklace with it.

This look is great for summers. You feel very relax with the updo bun. The whole look was very comfortable and light. I had an amazing time with my friends later that day.





I hope you loved the look. Soon I will start a giveaway to celebrate the first year anniversary of my blog. Do not forget to keep checking my other social network accounts (Facebook) and (Twitter). A special prize will be there to win.

Weekly Tip: Floppy Hats

Weekly Tip: Floppy Hats

Hi Everyone,

As the month of April is ending the sun rays and weather is getting hotter and hotter. But no matter what weather it is we have to go out and deal with it. In this situation we need everything to protect ourselves from the harsh weather and the sun. There are multiple options to protect ourselves from the weather: Using good sunscreen lotions, wearing sun glasses, carrying umbrella and adding scarf. But the most stylish way to protect your self from the harsh sun rays is by wearing a floppy hat.

Pairing a floppy hat gives a very chic and feminine look and at the same time it will protect you from sun. We all agree that wearing a hat gives you an amazing stylish look too.

You can wear the floppy hats with your shorts, boyfriend jean, maxi dress, swim suits, one piece, etc. In short, these pretty hats look cute with everything!! This season, I’m in total love with them and I love to wear them in almost everywhere.




Forever 21, Aldo Accessories and many other fashion accessories stores do have these cute looking floppy hats available for sale and that too in very affordable prices.


Everyone starting from celebrities to fashion bloggers love wearing them in summer. The floppy hats are in fashion since we have seen “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and it is still a very popular fashion accessory. I have few hats in my collection and I intend to buy more.

Color Splash: Multi Color One Piece and Red Pumps

Hi Everyone,

As you all might know that recently I got a huge opportunity to be a part of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2014 through Wills Lifestyle. Wills Lifestyle gifted me the Multi color one piece which I’m wearing here from their latest collection – Wills ClubLife.


The beautiful multi colored print, the super light and airy fabric of this dress makes it very summery and chic to wear. I have paired it with my red pumps, a little accessories and red lips to give it a vibrant look as this dress is meant for club life.




You can wear this look for clubbing, evening get-togethers and also for formal parties as this dress is very comfortable and easy to carry. The gold chain belt with this dress helps this dress to give a proper shape and fit to match your figure. The belt comes loose with this dress and you can use it for your other pairings too…

Product Review: Dungarees and Pinafores from ARK

Product Review: Dungarees and Pinafores from ARK

Hi Everyone,

Fashion is not just the clothes you wear but also the way you carry yourself and how you feel about it. It lies in one’s confidence. You will automatically look good if a dress fits you well and you are comfortable in it.

There are loads of outfits which look cute and stylish and at the same time are very comfortable too. Pinafore dresses and dungarees are one of those.

Whether it is hot and humid or cold and shivery, you can wear these and pair them with almost anything (sweaters, jacket, tee-shirt, crop tops,tank-top,ganji) and these will look super chic and give you the girl next door look. Dungarees sets an edgy look when paired up with an oversize tee and the cute Pinafore Dress creates a girly look when teamed up with a crop top.

I personally love Dungarees and Pinafore dresses and was browsing for a website who sells these products and I could not take my eyes off the cute Dungarees and Pinafore dresses from ARK ( Here ). They have a gorgeous selection at their website.

Below are some of their amazing collection:

Vintage Denim Light Blue 90s Dungarees: ₤14.99

Vintage Denim Light Blue 90s Dungarees: ₤14.99

Hearts & Bows Burgundy Cliff Velvet Pinafore Dress: ₤22.99

Hearts & Bows Burgundy Cliff Velvet Pinafore Dress: ₤22.99

The brand is different from its competitors because it is well known as one of the country’s leading retailers, setting trends and making sure shoppers stay up to date with the latest looks and labels.

Bring back the 90s fashion with Dungarees and Pinafores dresses and look cute and chic. So what are you waiting for girls! Go check out the ARK’s full Dungarees and Pinafores collection ( Here ).
