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!!

Scrolling down through all the winter fashion, digging deep into all possible on going sales, ( end of seasons, stock clearing, new year offers and what not) one thing which I found common in all of those high-end fashion scrap books is this: The Fishnet Stocking! They are the ultimate trend for the season. *Hands down*
It’s probably the most, THE MOST easiest way to transform your outfit from basic to chic,instantly. It’s particularly that one thing which can even make an outfit as casual as a distressed denim and t-shirt all the way look glam!
I had an eye for them since a month but then I really wasn’t sure if I could pull them off because on a serious note I thought my thick thighs would tear these delicate babies apart! But then,Duh. Guess who’s talks about body confidence all the time? I do! So,here is a post doing the fishnet trend and I totally love the results!
Before giving out the outfit’s details, I want to tell all my plumpies that irrespective of your body type, fishnets are flattering on your legs. Pair it with a dress,an oversized sweatshirt or skirts, anything. Just carry it with confidence,and trust me, you’ll steal the show!
Because this post was simply about fishnet and how anyone can try them on, I kept the outfit simple. This black top from Kazo is basically my favorite one. Comfort and fitting on point! That little sequins pocket adds subtle details to it. Paired with neat DIY torn denims which I can live in! Ditched boots for these strappy chunky heels complimenting those stockings!
Lastly because the outfit is so jet black, I didn’t want to pour colors to it, and so painted my lips bold to complete the look.
Thank you guys, tell me if you like the fishnet trend as much as I do. Tag me in your pictures if you try black lips or fishnet stockings, I’d love to see how are you styling it!
Until next time:

All right, curious about why have I named this post as ‘Love and Velvet’? I don’t know! I was actually thinking about cheese cakes and ‘Love and Cheesecake’ which is one of my favorite places for cheesecake, struck my mind; and so I just named this post ‘Love and Velvet’! Or may be because red velvet cheese cake is my favorite in particular? umm… I hope you guys can connect to what I just said. I AM TALKING FOOD! ( P.S: You are free to ignore this paragraph) HAHA.
Okay! now actually coming to the post. You know velvet is back in the game! In fact I saw velvet being a major pick for so many New year eve’s outfits! Also, the colors which are totally in for this velvet trend are all dark hues of maroon, blue, brown, olive green, etc. (all favoring the season).
So, I really wanted to try my hands on this velvet trend but now that I’m too late for a New year eve’s post, so just tried switching it into a casual yet classy outfit.
Paired this Classic Black velvet button down with my casual blue denim to get into the whole casual look. Tucked in from one side because SRK did it back then in ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’! LOL. ( P.S: velvet was a trend then). And because black and gold always make a good pair, I went for layered chain, hoop earrings and golden rings calling it all GOLD for me!
To complete the look, I went from a low pony tail and these black heels. Lastly, keeping the makeup dark (going with the flow of the season).
