Bluebells: Backless Top and Leopard Leggings

Bluebells: Backless Top and Leopard Leggings

Hi Everyone!

I was looking for a backless top or dress for a long time. I recently bought this top from Madame.

I went for shopping and was going through Madame’s collection when I noticed this top. The color of this top grabbed my attention first, but then I realized that it has a beautiful net in it. I quickly rush to the trial room but when I tried the top, the net was for the front side. I still decided to buy it and wear the net at the back and to my surprise it looked awesome like this. I hope you agree with me!

I went for Wella bloggers’ meet recently. I got to know about the true nature of color, hair damage and how the Wella Oil Infuso Color service can protect our hair & enhance its quality. We also had awesome sessions with the celebrity hair stylist Sapna Bhavnani and the Wella Team where they answered all our hair color related myths and issues. I had lots of fun at the event and would like to thank the Wella Team and their Travel Partners TaxiForSure for the invite and the smooth ride! Graphic1-1

Weekly Tip: Color Blocking Rules

Weekly Tip: Color Blocking Rules

Hi Everyone!

I have done couple of color blocking outfit posts earlier and trust me wearing colors makes your mood go very happy and joyful. Today we will talk about how you can make your outfit more colorful using the color palette by doing color blocking.

 

colourwheel01

To start understanding what color compliment which colors you need to understand the color wheel. You can see that the primary colors on the color wheel are: Yellow, Blue and Red and the most complimentary of these colors are: Purple (mix of red and blue), Orange (mix of yellow and red) and Green (mix of yellow and blue). This is the basic theory of the color palette. Primary colors look bright and nice with their opposite and complementary colors. However, you can mix and match any color you feel like looking good.

Color blocking, is a method of wearing multiple solid colors in an outfit. You can mix any two complimentary solid colors which revolves around a palette.

f you have never color blocked your outfit, start with the basics. Mixing two colorsa neutral and a bright. This will help you feel comfortable wearing a solid bright color. After you are comfortable wearing bright shades in your outfit, try to add more colors in it by choosing complementary colors. Always make sure of not making it too bold or you will end up looking like a clown. You can use natural color accessories or shoes, to create a balance in your outfit.

W New Collection: Peplum Top and Cap Toe Stilettos

Happy Sunday Everyone!

From past few days I was not very well. Was suffering from cough and cold and got a very silly sneezing infection. My nose cannot stop irritating till I sneeze at least six times. Oh dear, don’t ask me how I’m managing this.

Well, if you are following me on any of my social media accounts, then you might know that we got an invite from W to attend the launch of their Festive ’14 Collection at India Runway Fashion Show. From the time I got the invite, I wanted to wear something classy and sophisticated.

IMG_0098-1 IMG_0145-1

For this event I decided to pair up my black peplum top with the white and black pants. Peplum gives your figure a nice hourglass shape which I think looks super sexy. Keeping the look in monochrome I paired my metallic cap toe stilettos which complimented the look. I also wanted to add a little color to the whole outfit and I paired it with the bright pink clutch.

Nature Walk: Color Blocking with Palazzo Pants

Hi Everyone!

This time we decided to take a little nature walk while clicking pictures for the next outfit post. Living in big cities like Delhi, it is so difficult to find a quiet place where you can spend some time with ourself. We get so busy in our office and day to day work that we forget that how we are gifted with the beautiful nature. Believe me, taking a little walk and enjoying the view, makes your mind refresh.

The weather is changing and I’m loving the Fall. Delhi’s weather is changing and heat waves are turning into the cool breeze. I enjoyed wearing the Palazzo pants as it was very airy and comfortable.

Weekly Tips: Love for Oxfords

Weekly Tips: Love for Oxfords

Hi Everyone!

We women are so versatile that we can find styles and make things fashionable with anything we want. We adapted the boyish style in our own way in our wardrobes and give it a style statement.  Oxford shoes, also known as Brogue is one of those styles which we have adapted from men’s fashion and we are ruling it more them.

Women’s Oxford shoes are trending in the world of fashion; however, this trend dates back to the early nineteenth century. Borrowed from men’s footwear style, women’s Oxfords have received immense popularity since the 1920s, including much attention in the 1940s-1950. Since the current women’s Oxfords draw ideas not only from the men’s shoe, but also from almost any conceivable source, the women’s variety has more freedom in terms of design, choice, and less adherence to tradition. This implies that Oxford shoes can fit almost every woman’s preferred style.

Hi Everyone,

We always feel difficult finding the right clothes which should be smart and sexy looking as well as sophisticated at the same time for curvy women. We also agree that with great clothes you need to wear great lingerie to feel good about yourselves.

We all know the brand Westside which is one of the most popular clothing brands in India. Recently I got an invite from them to see and review their newly launched range for curvy women ‘Sassy Soda’ and their very own lingerie brand ‘Wunderlove’. Westside is one of my favorite places to shop since I was in school because of their lovely collection of clothes and pocket friendly prices.  When I got the invitation to go and see their new collection and write a review on it, I was more than overwhelmed.

Sassy Soda lets you flaunt every curve you’ve got. Fun prints, cool silhouettes, colors that pop and all the latest trends in plus-size that helps you sass up your wardrobe.

IMG_9988-1

Going through the collection I have found that they have various different products in this new range starting with top, jacket, skirt, dress, jumpsuit, pants, etc. They have created this range thinking about the modern curvy women who loves to dress up. I tried to fit myself in something from the collection to show you guys how it looks but sadly nothing fits me, though I tired the bright pink top and the crochet jacket which was my favorite from the collection.

IMG_0033-1

I was also excited to see the lovely lingerie that Westside launched called ‘Wunderlove’. It is Westside’s first in-house stylish and affordable lingerie brand to perfectly fit your every mood and wardrobe piece. The lingerie comprises of the daily essentials of everyday must-haves that lets you explore your fun, playful side.
