Bodysuit on Curves!

Bodysuit on Curves!

IMG_7294

Hi guys, Happy Sunday!! So you all probably know that I was trying to post this story since last 3 days but some or the other thing pops up. But today, I’ve pledged not to do anything else until I post this one. Although, my friend has his Cake Shop’s opening today, but I won’t go unless this is done! (I’m lying, I need cakes!)
OK, so the idea for this blog was, to try out a bodysuit- See if it looks good on me- And then tell you all whether it would work on curves? And I believe it DOES!

ABOUT BODYSUITS: Bodysuit has got a cut like that of a monokini swimsuit, but you wear a bottom over it and it basically gives you a ‘tucked in’ t-shirt’s look. You feel super sleek in it and it’s also comfortable enough, unless you have to pee. Because then you have to open it and it’s kinda weird to me. The one I’m wearing here is in size 2XL.

WHY BODYSUIT: Since bodysuit became a thing, I wanted to try one. Although I wasn’t really sure if I could pull it off. For a time now, I’ve been looking for the right one and finally found this. If you guys have observed my blog closely, you might have notice how most of my FASHION INSPIRATION come from those styles and trends which everybody thinks won’t suit the body type I own. I try to break stereotypes. I believe you should keep on trying stuff which is out of your comfort zoneI don’t ever tuck in my tops because then my bulges look clear! Same is the reason why I don’t wear high-waist denims. But this time, I tried doing both! And the result is pretty good I feel

STYLING THE BODYSUIT: Because I wanted the bodysuit to be the hero of this outfit, I kept rest every thing basic. I know you guys have seen this denim jacket for a thousand times now, but I love it so much! Also, it’s the only oversized denim jacket I own! Paired it with basic black denim and these clear aviator glasses to complete the look. The makeup was all neutral and a little blushing, because Now you know-PINK is my new obsession.

Hi Guys, EID MUBARAK to each one of you!! All good wishes and love for you guy!
I really wanted to do this Eid Blog Post before Eid, (Obviously) so you guys could get a little help for your Eid outfits, but if you follow my social media, you’d know how busy the weekend was. But, Better Late Than Never, you guys can still check this style, for some indo-wester inspiration for some occasion anytime soon!
Doing an Indian outfit for Eid, I wanted something that is not completely ethnic, because it’s all raining and some heavy oufit would have been a mess! The idea was to keep it simple yet beautiful! So I decided to settle on an outfit with is more causal and light but still Indian enough for the Day!

And this is what I came up with:

KURTI: I saw this kurti on the Amydus’s website, and I know I had to get it. I felt the style is so me! Being a long straight kurti it is, which I feel are the most comfortable, plus it has cold shoulders which are totally trending.
You can wear it along with a torn denim and with sneakers, it would be such a fun outfit what way too.

PANTS: Earlier I thought I’d go with some palazzo but rains and flowy silhouettes don’t work well together. These maroon pants are again from Amydus and while admiring how perfectly does it match with the kurti,I decided to pair them together. And belive you me, these pants felt like they are tailor made for me, they have such amazing fit and I didn’t even alter the length.
These pants came with a belt so you can just wear them otherwise with a top for a more casual look!

THE BOHO TOUCH: I decided to go with some silver jewellery to add a little shine to the outfit and so added a  silver choker and chain,(although gold would go equally well with this piece of dress, so you can add some golden accessories with this kurti anytime if you want) and I made a braid of the hair! Lately these Kolhapuris are my go-to for every indian outfit and thus completed my look with them.
My makeup is always light but I ditched it for some darker tones for this look! Although I’m a makeup noob, so forgive me if you thing it would have been better! (or much better? May be)
Hope you guys liked  the look, tell me if you want me to do more of Indian looks! I’d love to know from you guys! Comment below, or on Facebook or Instagram

Asian Paints introduces “Signature Look”

Asian Paints introduces “Signature Look”

IMG_5264

So, recently I attended the Asian Paints event. They had their launch of the ‘Signature look’. The new personalised decor has got it’s inspiration from Travel and Adventure, and so they had Kaustubh Khade, Rishab Joshi from Lost Stories and Yeshwant Holkar as their guest speakers! We heard each of their amusing and thrilling travel stories which was so much fun! Also I got to make my own mood book which said my Room decor should be all glamorous!
Here is a little you need to know about the event:

Personalised home décor ideas for Indian consumers with a sense of adventure, wanderlust and the spirit of exploration – in partnership with Peacock Life, The Label Life and Orange Tree.

19 June, 2017, Mumbai: This summer, Asian Paints, India’s leading paint company, is kicking off from the humdrum and venturing into the unknown. Asian Paints introduces the ‘Signature Look’- a décor look carefully curated by Asian Paints’ décor consultants to bring your love for travel into your home and heart. The Signature Décor Solutions service makes it easy for homemakers to paint their memories and stories onto their walls. It allows homemakers to co-create intricately designed, personalised spaces where every décor accessory, furnishing and detail accentuates the mood of the room, using the walls as the perfect canvas to bring travel experiences to life! One can even choose from the many pre-designed artworks on offer. Customers can also paint their bucket lists on their walls and get customized décor recommendations from their Signature décor consultants.
The latest trend in home décor is here – ‘Signature Look’. The launch, themed “The World Homeward” takes you on a journey that breathes fresh air into your lungs and makes you cherish the memories that have made you, you. One such ‘Signature Look’ that has been designed integrates the cultural influence of Portugal on the Indian state of Goa. The effortless integration of these two seemingly contrasting cultures has lent a uniqueness to Goan culture that cannot be found anywhere else in the subcontinent. The resulting décor uses laid back chairs and earthen toned walls to imitate the beach shacks whereas the accessories echo the fluidity and tranquillity of the sea. The space embodies the essence of Goan culture and creates an environment one would love to come home to every day.
The services will be made available exclusively at the Asian Paints Colour Store, Bandra and you can also book a session online or gain more information here.

Speaking on the launch, Rashi Bhartia, Marketing Executive-Retailing, Asian Paints Ltd says, “Every home is the embodiment of the person or family that lives there. It is a place that we all want to be special, where every nook and corner must mean something. And so it is our endeavour to help our consumers do just that! It is with great pride that we launch ‘Signature Look’ for our consumers this season, which gives their travel experiences and ideas a visual representation. Each décor style has been carefully researched and customised in a way that is sure to make their memories permanent in the most personalised way possible.”

About the Speakers:

Kaustubh Khade – Kaustubh can best be described as a sport enthusiast. But it is his love for kayaking that has taken him deep into uncharted waters and he thrives on being left to find his footing. Not only has he represented the country at international kayaking tournaments, he also holds the Limca Record for completing a 500kms solo kayaking journey from Mumbai to Goa. To us, a trip from Mumbai to Goa might seem like an invitation to kick back and sip cocktails on the beach. To Kaustubh, it is an invitation to kayak alone, in deep, sea waters. His recent kayaking journey began in Kutch and ended at Kanyakumari. Hear him share his experiences and his love for the water with your feet planted firmly on terra firma.
Yeshwant Holkar – Yeshwant is the co-founder of Umoja – an online platform that curates and develops travel plans for families where loved ones have limited mobility. Yeshwant’s journey of making Indian tourism more accessible for everyone is a heartwarming initiative made even more remarkable when viewed alongside India’s overarching lack of inclusive measures for differently abled people. Umoja has been pivotal in bringing awareness and improving accessibility. Yeshwant has a repertoire of compelling stories and we have an evening to get acquainted with them.
Rishab Joshi from Lost Stories  – Lost Stories is one of the largest music talents of the country. The duo has performed for numerous prestigious stages, including Sunburn and Tomorrowland alongside international artists like DJ Tiesto, Dash Berlin, Boombaba etc. Their musical genius has landed them the title of being India’s leading electronic dance music performers/DJs but they aren’t resting on past accolades.  Their cover of Justin Beiber’s “Sorry” with Armaan Malik clocked over a half million hits on YouTube. They are currently collaborating on new music with numerous national and international artists, which is expected to hit the market soon. Rishab has played for renowned clubs like Knox, Versuz, and Opium in Europe and crazy experiences were par for the course. He is the younger genius of the two and enjoys connecting with people. An evening of swapping travel stories with him will revive the music aficionado in you.

4 Reasons Why You Should DIY your Denims. Ft Pompom DIY

4 Reasons Why You Should DIY your Denims. Ft Pompom DIY

17AB196D-2C24-4FCB-A759-5A40EF11450E

Hey plumpies, I would never have completed my pompom post unless you guys have really pushed me for it. And I am greatful for it! So, very little time left for the sky to start dripping again! ( I love monsoon) And before the season for wearing whites and colours just flies off, I am finally doing my DIY blog post!
Now that the pictures are already here for you guys,I am not telling you all how you can DIY a pompom denim! That’s easy. Some scissors and glue!! You don’t need to be perfect, you just need to try! What I really want to tell you guys through this post it, WHY you should do such DIYs. And here is why:

1. SAVES MONEY:
A basic denim would cost you ₹1500, but a branded denim with the same pompom thing, would cut a ₹3500 deep hole in your pocket. So a little effort is worth saving ₹2000 bucks!
( Take me out for pizza with the money you just saved.)

2. YOU ARE THE CREATOR:
You go to a store, see a denim with tiny pompoms costing you ₹3000. But wait! daddy’s spoiled girl want to buy what that model wore in the campaign pictures. Wowww! ₹1000 extra for the campaign look! Now stop, and think! You would get some pompoms for₹100-150. So sit back home and do it exactly like what the pictures show. And honey, you would definitely do better than that piece. I BELIEVE IN YOU!

3. SOME ME TIME:
For me, painting or doing some sort of art is meditation. I feel so good thinking of putting all those pretty colours wherever I want. Try it, you’d feel happy inside when people compliment you for you creativity.

4. YOU ARE SAVING THE WORLD:
Ask me how? It takes 7000 liters of water to produce one pair on denim. Instead of a high street brand, buy from a vintage shop, buy thrifted, and put up whatever embellishments you want to! Thus, you are saving water, energy and money.YOU GO GIRL!

So, now that you know why you got to DIY your denims, do it more often. Whether it is the for putting up those quirky patches or pompoms or even laces! You can do it all.
Also, tell me how you like this denim I worked on?

B05D0A1C-18FD-4BFA-97B3-090092F3DF00IMG_41249FF8EFAC-92D7-415C-BAD5-83391BB67680748C36BE-C949-45F0-A696-9F5F333EA268

ABOUT THIS LOOK:
This is the same pair of denim you saw me wearing with my fishnet stockings, check it here. I’ve put some laces and some pompoms on it. Because it’s already so colourful, I went for a plain white shirt and tied it around the waist for some summer touch.
Now coming to the pompom slippers; there is a store in Bandra where this old uncle sits, and he puts pompoms on whatever you get him. From denims, to slippers, to slips, to anything. And he charges hardly something. So in case you don’t really want to do this DIY yourself. This uncle is always to your rescue!!!!
To add more of my pompom detailing, I’ve put some pompom pins in my pony tail. And to complete the look I paired these transparent frames which are totally in this season. And finally red lip shade to give the whole look a warmer tone for summer!

Cotton For Summer!

Cotton For Summer!

664543DA-60AD-42F3-8872-8172455D542D

Cotton is everything you need this summer! It’s such a light and breezy material. Also, it looks effortless when you put it on. And for us, WE WEAR DRESSES FOR SUMMER! In fact you have a dress for every season!!!
So for this summer, I bring to you this powder pink cotton button down. To start with, I am in love with this shade of pink.

STYLE TIP: If you are bustier and your upper body is wider than your hips, you should definitely  try out this dress. Because it has gathering at the waist which would make your body look proportionate.
But then of course, if you have heavier bottoms, rather go for a straight-fit shirt dress.

Because I wanted to show how dresses can even work for summer, I kept the whole look simple. You can anytime add accessories to give an edge to the outfit.
If you guys follow my Instagram you’d know that I recently posted an article ( read the article here), which I wrote for Womeniya Magazine, showing how you can use your last year’s winter wardrobe still for this season. And tan colour palette is one of them. I know, tan is a dull shade and summer is all about bright hues. But tan oxfords and sling can never go wrong! (At least for me) Fashion is interpretive guys!
Also, to do justice with my tan obsession, I used a darker lip shade. And to give this pink button down a girly touch, I went for two sleek pony tail and thus completed my look.
Tell me how you like the whole look?

IMG_0559Hi guys, how are you all doing? I’m just fine. The summer is hitting me hard, oily skin and pimples is what summer does to me every time.
Never mind. Remember how I was all pumped up for my friend’s wedding in Karnataka? How I told I’ll go and have lots and lots of fun? Much of it, didn’t really happen. Although, to my surprise, Bijapur (District where I stayed) is such an amazing little place! All the monuments throughout the place have ridiculously  poor maintenance, other wise this would definitely be one top tourist attraction in India.
You know, the best thing to do when you are traveling along? Talk to the locals! I was all alone for 6 days, and ran out of 4G (I know, nightmare for a girl alone wandering around a new town).But trust me, the local people there are all so friendly! All the auto drivers I met, every watchman I came across, each kid on the streets, every single shop owner all; of them were such good humans!
I have actually heard from the people that , Bijapur is a place in India where you get the maximum amount of hidden treasures! Like I am not even kidding, but every time a person wants to dig up the land for setting up a hand pump or well, he has to take a cop along with him because they might find gold from anywhere underground and then it becomes the government’s property!

Day 1: I reached early in the morning by 6 and perhaps slept the whole day.

Day 2:
IBRAHIM ROZAH-
It’s such a magnificent monument, but hardly maintained. Usually when you go Delhi and Agra, you have boards at every point giving a brief description of the area, here there where none! Also hardly any tourist. It has a huge garden and was one of the most peaceful place I have ever visited.

IMG_0743IMG_0664
WHAT I WORE-
All My outfits for the whole tour were Indian. I planned it that way! So this was a straight long kurti with Palazzo. (see the same palazzo styled as a western outfit here). Tied my hair up in low bun and wore kolhapuri. Thus clubbing a perfect low-key cotton outfit!
OUTFIT DETAILS-
Kurti- Local market
Palazzo- Globus
Kolhapuri- Krafted with happiness

Day 3:
BARA KAMAZ-
Basically the architecture at Bara Kamaz is such that, where ever you stand, at any point within the place, you can see at least 12 Pillars! Totally a long-lost place again!
JUMMA MASJID-
It was Saturday and also, Sab-e-Barat that day ( Religiously important night for Muslims). I decided to go Jumma masjid, although women are not allowed in a mosque but they didn’t tell me anything while I got in. Obviously they understood I’m a tourist and so might have let me in…maybe. The Mujawar, (care taker of the place) was again a very nice person and he came himself and took me around the Jumma Masjid. There is a huge door like thing on the wall which is fully made of gold, and god knows why much people have never even heard of it!IMG_1095IMG_1060IMG_0959
WHAT I WORE-
Wore a Long A-line kurti with leggings in black colour which had patche of colourful prints on the sides. Wearing Black in summer is a courageous decision but it helps hiding the sweat patches on your outfit so I had to!
OUTFIT DETAILS-
Kurti- exhibition
Leggings- Global Desi
Heels- Bandra

Day 4:
My friend had her Mehendi function that day and it took me all day to put some on my hands too! The day was so busy I didn’t think of going out anywhere.IMG_1199

Day 5:
GOL GULBAZ-
The only place in the entire town which is maintained, and has guides available! The place is huge and the architecture is such that when you stand on the top of the tomb and shout something, you can hear your echo 7 times! But while people were making sound and tried hearing it back, they made such weird noises that the whole situation was disturbing! Also to go up there at the top you have to climb 108 big stairs!1E4D499F-C031-4BE1-B4FE-88C0DD333540B187CE26-45E7-42E6-899B-C797130CF4FCFF6E8EBB-0303-43B0-AB2B-32E03FF9422E
WHAT I WORE-
This one is a whole three-piece set in solid sky blue colour,which has a floor length  kurti with an inner and leggings, the dupatta is extra I got is just to complete the outfit.
OUTFIT DETAILS-
Dress- Bawree
Jhumkas- Jaipur market

DAY 6:
WEDDING DAY-
It was the wedding day, and yes the food was good!FB9588E0-D9A9-4360-98E0-E8CFF1523FD567A97D6C-C280-4132-92C4-FA5E563EF4714D700286-D51C-4D5B-BCF1-F21A1893DBEA
WHAT I WORE-
Wedding in afternoon don’t really make a good atmosphere to wear lehenga for the day! That’s exactly why I wore this Kamiz and Churidar suit. I got this one a year back for my cousin’s wedding. Gold and blue were pretty much trending last year when I got this outfit and I specially love the neck line of this dress which has pearls on it.
OUTFIT DETAILS-
Dress- Aunty’s collection
Heels- Bandra

Wear Palazzo Every Time!

Wear Palazzo Every Time!

   5515EA11-AC00-40E8-9619-FA0223C527CF
      If you guys follow my Instagram, you’d already know that I’m done with my exams and was enjoying a stress free week before I get back to work, So here I am!

Many people speculated about the fact that I wear a lot of denim, even though it clearly shows my mermaid thighs. (Check out my Denim on Denim look, here. You can also check how I styled my denim with crop top, here.) Actually, it’s not about showing my curves, for me denims are my ‘Go-to outfit’ when I do not feel like shaving my legs, and that happens pretty much ALL THE TIME.Otherwise, I could wear a dress or something.So,I just though of what else could it be, apart from jeans that has the comfort and also doesn’t  brings my thigh shape into notice? And here is what I came up with- Palazzo!!!

    Palazzos are like, *hands down* the coolest apparel for me. It’s the ultimate piece of cloth that, ‘fits with everything for everyone’. Now basically what I mean by ‘everything and everyone’ is that you can pair it with everything from crop tops, kurtis and shirts, and turn it into anything from indo-western to western or even ethnic; irrespective of your size and body shape! The flowy silhouette slips on all your curves, or even no curves and adds a feminine touch to your outfit. Also, it’s an all season thing and comes in every possible fabric. So, flared bottoms for summer is a thumbs up to me!
Now for this one, I went for a complete black outfit keeping the makeup nude with bold eyes.While accessorizing the look, I added this velvet tie around choker without tying it obviously! To break the monotony, I bought in this brown clutch. You know, that’s the thing about black outfits, EVERYTHING WORKS WELL WITH IT. Although, I don’t really prefer my hair tied, but the humidity doesn’t allows you to let them loose. (That’s the only legit explanation I have for the hairstyle.)

That’s it about the look,  take my suggestion and try out palazzo for the season!

Also, don’t forget to check me out on Social media and comment how you like the look:
