3 Ways To Style An Oversized T-shirt!

3 Ways To Style An Oversized T-shirt!

So many of you girls keep asking me how do I go without repeating outfits all the time. Well, frankly that’s impossible! Special for a middle class someone like me! I always repeat outfits but in such a way that people don’t notice. I have learned this art over the time in collage. And today I’ll be sharing it all with you guys.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
First of all it’s really important for you to know that it OKAY TO REPEAT CLOTHES! It’s really not a big deal and won’t matter to anyone unless you are Kylie Jenner. It’s okay if Instagram has seen your outfit, chill out! But still, if it matters so much to you, this is what you need to do….

HOW TO DO IT:
1. TIME INTERVAL: Bra and Black leggings, are two pieces from your wardrobe that give you the liberty to repeat them as much as you wish! But for the rest, you should remember the last time you wore them out. For a statement top or a dress, it’s something that people would notice, make sure you don’t repeat them back-to-back in a week.

2. LAYERING IS THE KEY: I strongly believe in this one whenever it’s about repeating clothes! The idea is to MAKE ANY ONE PIECE THE STAR OF YOUR LOOK. Like if you wear a t-shirt with a denim, styling it casually obviously the t-shirt will have all the attention. But team that t shirt with a jacket and a skirt the next time you wear it(here, the jacket can be vibrant making it the star of the ensemble). This way you can repeat the t-shirt with layers!

I took an oversized T-shirt (FOREVER21 MEN) to show you guys how would this work.
1.THE T-SHIRT DRESS- T-shirt dresses are simple yet edgy. I’ve added a silver neck piece and strappy heels turning it into a statement look.

2.DENIM ON DENIM: When you do the denim on denim trend, the t-shirt inside isn’t really visible. I have done it for a thousand times repeating the same denim jacket and jeans and till it looks different every time! Check it here

Goa Travel Story!

Goa Travel Story!

IMG_9458Frankly, I had no plans on writing this one, as I was in Goa just for two days. But, because a lot of you guys were curious about the pictures I uploaded, I decided to write everything down. And the fact is, I really love sharing details with people who actually ask for it. So here it is- THE GOA TRAVEL STORY!
I was stuck with my college admission for a month and when I finally got done with it, we decided to go out for a break, and what’s better than GOA?
TRAVEL: We took a flight from Mumbai to Goa on 25th July. The flight was at 11:30am in the morning touching down Goa at 12:50pm. Also, I met a school friend who happen to be my flight attendant and so I got a special lunch which just made my day!It takes you almost 40 minutes to reach the hub BAGA from Goa airport.

IMG_9160IMG_9175

WHAT DID I WEAR: It’s a must that you wear comfy clothes while you are traveling, and that’s exactly why I kept it all basic with my regular jeggings(TRENDS) and a white top.(ONLY)

IMG_9108

STAY: It’s my opinion that when you are in Goa, a luxury hotel is the last thing you should look for. Because, it’s obvious you won’t stay in your hotel room when you are in GOA!! For us, we have friends there and all I needed was a small corner in their apartment!

IMG_9444

DAY 1: After the travel and the heavy lunch in the flight, I slept the whole afternoon that day. In the evening I went out at BAGA beach, and wandered around the lanes for some shopping.

WHAT DID I WEAR: You guys have already seen this Jumpsuit on the blog before (Read it here )but this time I styled it in a complete different way for Goa. Added a sheer shrug to it which really levelled up the glamour quotient. Finished the look with sleek ponytail and hoop earing(Forever21) which it so trendy currently!Processed with VSCO with p5 presetProcessed with VSCO with p5 preset

SHOPPING: Trust me, you don’t have to go around and check every single lane while you are shopping in Goa. Most of them have the same stuff. I think the very lane before Baga beach is the best one for clothes. There you can find comparatively fresh collection. Talking about Jewelry they have beads and silver oxidised chunky pieces. For jewelry the CALANGUTE beach lane is great!

WHAT TO SHOP: Dhoti pants, Jholas, Tribal and Boho print dresses and T-shirts, Beads and Silver oxidised pieces. And Cashews of course!IMG_9274
TIPS:
1. Do Not Impulse Buy:While you are at the shop, you might have the urge to impulsively buy so much but DO NOT! Because when you come back home, you’d notice half of the stuff from Goa is available in your own city too. And some of them might look pretty in the shop but you would never wear such stuff too often in your daily life.
2. Bargain Really Well: It’s really important for you to understand the value of the thing you want to buy and then bargain accordingly. Because for the shopkeepers, they would judge you and put any price they feel. Bargain your heart out!
For example: The shop lady told me ₹650 for a top, I bargained and brought it down and got 2 tops for ₹500. That’s how you got to do it!IMG_9272

DAY 2: The second day we went Anjuna beach which is some 20 minutes ride from Baga. We had lunch at Curlies, and then covered a few more places and churches, and came back to Baga again before leaving for the airport!

WHAT DID I WEAR: Comfy clothes again! My love for oversized t-shirts is never ending. I went for a easy going look with a t-shirt and a pair of shorts.(Forever21) I added some details with these dream catcher earings(Instagram page) and holographic bag.(Forever21)IMG_9644Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

FOOD: Goa is packed with pretty looking places and cafes! I chose Curlies because in has the authentic Goan vibes. Also, there is a lane called ‘Muslim Khau Gali’ in Khobra Vaddo, which has typical street food including Chicken Kebabs and seekh! I personally loved it there and would recommend it to everyone.IMG_9275IMG_9514

COMING BACK: While coming back, I wore one of those dhoti pants I brought from the market there itself. My flight got delayed by 30mins and I came back home around 2:20am!59C782E9-F28E-46A8-BFB3-C52C77BCA7C0

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

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:

Hi guys,

It’s been quite a while that I’ve stated blogging, I’m trying to manage my studies and blogging and everything else along sides.

So, basically since I’m writing about stuff I like, apart from  body confidence and cloths, I’m inclined towards accessories. Yes! oxidized jewellery-the antique ones, chunky accessories, I go gaga over them!

Be it Sarojini Nagar or Linking road (as I stay in Mumbai), I go out for shopping to buy other stuff, I end up buying accessories! But unfortunately, I didn’t get any opportunity to wear them for my blog yet, because as they are from local market, I probably can’t tag the store and when you guy ask me, I’m unable to help much!

But then, my immense love for accessories has forced me to take time, and do a story just talking about it!

So, here it is!!! If you guys follow my space, you’d know that, Krafted with Happiness is a brand which makes handcrafted jewellery which is beautifully out of the world! The designs are unique, specially the earrings, it’s like if you just wear a single piece from their collection, you don’t have to add any thing else to the outfit! They make statement pieces, so colorful and unique!

So,here in this post, I’ve styled two very pretty pieces from their collection-

1. EARRINGS

2. FOOTWEAR

LOOK 1:For the first look, I kept the outfit simple and paired these chunky  ‘You’re my sun’ earring with one of my favorite dress (I call it, ’50 shades of blue’). If you notice, the background is really pretty, but the earrings still manage to steal the show! For this one, I went for red lips to subtle out the loud earring effect!

 

NOTE:Also my dear plumpies,yes, my stretch marks shows in all of the pictures, which I could have hid or edited but I didn’t because that’s the real me and I am prettier than the existing beauty standards. These flaws don’t bother me nor it should to you, for there is not wrong way to be beautiful!6E5B3249-AF3B-43CF-B9E9-E34D6FB204E1

1C84A04E-832E-4239-923A-92A8C3DFB1B9

 

LOOK 2: For the second look, I though of going along the whole vibe of these ‘ Rani Noor’ Kolhapuri chappals (footwear), and so I styled them on an ethnic kurti and leggings suit, where the embroidery in the sleeves and hems are totally matching with the footwear! I went for a dark maroon lip color because that’s how I prefer my Indian look!

      And guy, this post has surely reassured my loyalty for accessories, and now I know I have to add more of them on the blog,even if they are from a flea market! (Because that’s OK)

Until next time!

Hi guys, how is everyone? Like tell me for real! I really love when my followers come up and initiate a conversation! I am fine too, just somehow made through the week!  You don’t really feel like doing other stuff when you have exams going on( Yes, I told you I will crib).
There is a story behind this look which I am sharing with you guys, so basically when I went birthday shopping last month ( if you guys remember, February is my birthday month). So while I was just checking out Coverstory collection, my eyes met this frill peplum sheer top. Of course I picked it up without another thought. But when I tried it on and showed it to my mum, she told me one thing which she say everytime when I buy something, and that is,”Again Black?”. So that was the moment I decided to pen down a Color Block post!

  Color block is basically when you add a piece of some solid color on otherwise black/white or subtle outfit making it the center of attraction. Color blocking is really very fun at  times!
And this is how eventually I styled the whole outfit:
 THE TOP: Reason why I decided to do a post with this top are many. Firstly,looking at it from a plus size perspective, because it’s a peplum top, which has frills, the frills cover your belly, making you look flatter on the abdomen.Also, it’s sheer, so totally brezzy for summers! And it is an embroidered patch, so for someone like me who has an eye for details, this is win win top!
THE BOTTOM: Denim with raw hems is so in-trend this season and I had to get one! Also, the fish new stockings is my current obsession! Hence,choosing the bottoms was an easy job!
THE COLOR BLOCK: Because the top had an embroidery in red and pink, I used only those shades for blocking. So, I added that red belly shoes, pink sling, red lipstick, pink acid reflectors and that little bindi for the effect!  For you can even just add one single statement piece in your color block outfit too!
   Just realised, how this tiny bindi on my forehead can give this whole look a passive Indian touch. That’s the beauty of Indian culture! And I am totally loving it
  A STYLE NOTE: Peplum top is really a great option if you want to make your belly less visible, because the silhouette covers the side bulges in a very beautiful way!!
 Xoxo,
 Shaziya Memon.
