Give it up for the Jumpsuit!Β 

Hi my lovely readers! Do you remember me ranting on multiple occasions about how a jumpsuit never ever ever fits me perfectly? Well I atlast got my hands on the jumpsuit which was destined to be mine recently and I couldn’t wait to show it to you guys 😍 so here we go! 

   

    

 I styled the jumpsuit with two statement pieces. One of which was this golden messenger bag which I absolutely love! My next style was :

   
    

   
My second statement piece was this absolutely beautiful silk blazer. I loved this look more because it added so much definition to the waistline and gave me some shape πŸ˜ƒ

Let’s hope it passes as quickly and painlessly as a strip of chocolate wax being pulled out 😜 Enjoy your day!  

  
 

   

One Pencil Skirt Two WaysΒ 

What’s a Monday without a post from me right? Wrong! Don’t tell me you were wondering why I dint post a post on Monday…I wouldn’t buy it even for a second but yes lament about it I will! Due to some technical glitches faced by this technically severely challenged fashion blogger (I had to convert CR2 files to JPG…nope I dint know how to do that 😬 judge me!) I was unable to post yesterday but fret not here I am with a new post and this one today is about a pencil skirt which I came to own a couple of months ago. Now a pencil skirt can be a tricky piece of clothing especially for the ummmm…how do I put this subtly…the pear-shaped people like me! I have always shied away from them but then I realized I could make it work if I paired it with the right blouse. So here’s how I used my pencil skirt to create a morning and an evening look (both however shot in the afternoon…sorry you should have seen that PJ coming πŸ˜πŸ’πŸ») 

Morning Look 

For the formal look I kinda toned down my bright coral-peach skirt with a teal shirt which hit the right length such that it covered the problem areas well enough πŸ‘ 
  
I kept the look pretty simple with a gold tassel long chain I have been obsessed with and a coral flower earring. I opted for my Zara flats which are both comfortable for an all day use and a bit dressy too with all the gold detailing.

    
A close up under some white light so that you can see the 1) winged eyeliner swag I’m pulling off 2) the actual color of my top and 3) the winged eyeliner swag I’m pulling off…oh yeah! 


Evening Look

The evening look was without doubt so much more exciting to create! I’m the most comfortable person in bubble tops but I find they do absolutely nothing to accentuate our figure so when I realized I could play around with the blouse since I had a structured skirt my hands instantly reached out to this fun bubble top I love!  

This attention pose has become something of a favorite though everyone around actively hates it πŸ˜‚     

For this look I decided to carry my golden glitter clutch and I brought out my much used and abused glitter pumps. I traded the quaint tassel chain for this chunky peach beads and completed the look with my used and reused cat eye glasses! 

      

   

And again a closeup shot because forgedaboutme just look at that cute kids face painted 😍

IndoWestern FestiveFun OutfitIdeas!Β 

In an attempt to make the most of the festive season while we are at the end of it I bring to you another indowestern outfit you can try for functions and festivals. Warning : whatever be your age this outfit will make you look (and feel) like a 12 year old (assuming you are older than that ofcourse) so be prepared πŸ˜‹now that I have given you the heads up, let’s jump straight into the outfit!  
This ikat printed skirt was a piece I bought nearly six months ago. It has been lying around without being worn only because I did not have a top for it! With the skirt I had bought this mustard running material but who does tough things like going to the tailor and getting it stitched right? 😐     
So recently I decided it was high time and I pushed my lazy ass to the tailors and told them the exact pattern I wanted (courtesy : YouTube and Pinterest πŸ’ƒπŸΌ) and once the top was done, voila! A grand outfit was ready! 😍  

  
   
 This is a beautiful printed skirt with so much flair! It gives a school girly charm and makes for a great outfit to wear while visiting friends and relatives for Navrathri I have in one occasion before stitched an halter neck blouse for a saree and I realized halter neck makes your shoulders and whole profile look slim and that’s why I decided to go halter for this top.   

   
  I completed the look with a set a gold earrings (chandbalis?) and a tan brown pair of jodhpuri sandals. I decided to wear nothing on my hands or neck and thought that really made the outfit the king.   

   
   
I loved the way these colors and prints have worked together and created a killer outfit which is very wearable and affordable! Add a bindi and a set of three dots to the sides of your eyes and on your chin and who knows you might even be outfit ready for garba (a Gujarati dance form which happens through the night through all nine days of festivities) 😍Hope you enjoyed the outfit and more importantly you are thinking of ways to recreate it πŸ˜ƒ 

Outfit details : Skirt ready made and top material – Shilpi Alwarpet, stitched by – Vasthra (my tailor), Joshpuri Sandals – very old bought at some exhibition by mom (for mom πŸ˜‹), Earrings – Kushals, Watch – Tommy Hilfiger 

Have a great week ahead readers. You’ve sure started it off well by reading my post πŸ˜‰ here’s a twirling picture of me like I have not a care in the world ! Enjoy! πŸ˜† 
  
 

Festive Chic! + Giveaway Winner AnnouncementΒ 

Hi all you lovely readers 😍! The only thing I am looking forward to after a long weekend is a short painless week which I hope runs away quickly!! 

Moving on, Navrathri is right around the corner and I thought a good way to get back to my Fashion game would be to give y’all some inspiration for looks you can recreate this Navrathri! So stay tuned! 

  
I bet everyone of us has this odd lehenga/ghagra/dhavani we are kinda ashamed of now because it looks like we just stepped in and out of a rainbow carrying the entire frikkin VIBGYOR out with us! One such Dhavani I own my is this one! (Don’t laugh 😐) 

  
While I individually love the blouse and the skirt I hate, with all vehemence I can muster, the Dhavani or the green brocade portion of the attire. So I decided to tone down the whole look by just using the skirt giving this look a much needed twist! 

  
That’s right! I wore this bright (I’ll blind you with this skirt type of bright) skirt with a very plain ethnic Kurti or short top! 

  
It was like an explosion in my head when one day I saw this Kurti and this skirt lying next to each other in my closet and I thought why not?!? 

 

It’s grand and underplayed at the same time and it is the perfect look for a function or a party/reception   
    
 
The mild embroidery along the length of the top gives it a very traditional touch making the pairing so easy! 

   

 I completed the look with a pair of violet heels I bought over a year ago a sneak of which is shown here! 

  
This is a look you can easily recreate for the festive season this year by pairing a bright piece with a sober one in the same colour scheme! I’ll try and add a few more outfits you can recreate this Navarathri to look fab and festive while going light on your pocket too! 

Outfit Details : Skirt – Material from RmKV, Chennai and designed and stitched by my Tailor, Top – Shilpi CP Ramasamy Salai, Heels -Flipkart, on my lips – Lakme Absolut hi-Definition Matte in the shade Pink Caress

Customised Sneakers – A DIY

Do you have a Pinterest board full of these beautiful hand painted sneakers which is all over the internet now? Then you’ve come to the right place! 

Do you love doing DIYs as much as I do? Then you’ve come to the right place! 

Are you randomly going through my blog because it popped up on your RSS feed? Then you’ve come to the right place (just kidding…but stay anyway please β€οΈπŸ™πŸ») 

So last week I had a day off and I decided to do something fun! 😍 And that’s how this customised sneakers idea was born 😊let’s jump right into the DIY! 

Things you’ll need 

   

  

  

 

Step 1 : Draw half circles using the coin throughout the shoe. You might want to imitate the design on one shoe more or less equally and similarly on the other shoe. Also decide right at this stage which are area which will have the design and which parts of the shoe are going to remain blank! 

 

I decided to have the design throughout the sides of my shoe and the flap inside and leave the top portion plain

Step 2 : Since my theme was watermelons I painted the half circles red. Since a lot of layers and coats are going to come above this red don’t worry if the paints or the borders are not too precise. 

   

 

Step 3 : Paint the background with any neutral or contrasting shade. I went for black. I decided not to paint the flaps inside to give it some black and white effect. Unfortunately I forgot to click pictures at this stage. 😟 

Step 4 : Add the detailing required to complete the watermelon. Draw a first outline with a dark sap green and the next outline with a sort of light minty green. Add the seeds inside. I went for white seeds because that stood out better than the black seeds! 

  
Step 5 : Allow the shoe to dry for sometime and touch up all the areas which require some perfecting and touching up. A second coat does make a significant difference! 

 

Note the difference between the previous image and this one! Magic of an extra coat!

Step 6: Lace it up and flaunt it like it’s nobody’s business! HAHA! 

   

  

  

  


Hope you’ll enjoyed this DIY! Please try it soon and tell me what you painted and how it went! 😍  

Seasonal Transitions – Autumn! Layered Mild yet Happy

Hi everyone! I’m back with the next post πŸ™‚ and this ones about autumn πŸ‚πŸπŸŒΎ at last I’m on track with these seasons and bringing out an autumn post when it’s actually going to turn autumn in countries where four seasons exist. (If you’ve been reading this blog you’d have heard this rant a billion times – the place I live in, has just two seasons summer and rainy summer 😐😝) 

So this time around we retained the concept of Sandhya wearing something short Anusha wearing pants and Shilpa (me) wearing maxi skirts! But for autumn and winter we changed the staple outfits! Let’s dive right into the look and you’ll understand what I mean πŸ˜ƒ

First up, Sandhya’s look 

   

   
For autumn Sandhya decided to keep it light and floral below and warm and cozy above..! So she has worn this skater skirt (oh how cute 😘) with this peach cardigan/light sweater! She had kept the rest of the look very simple with very basic makeup and completed it with her nude pumps! What do you think? πŸ˜ƒ

Next we have Anusha’s look

   

    
Anusha’s look was all about comfort this time around too! So she switched from her palazzo (which she wore for the first two seasons) to these comfortable jeggings/tights thingy … For the top she wore a turtle neck sleeveless sweater and this floral jacket over it! She completed the look with these amazing boots Sandhya lent her and that was it!! I thought the jacket looked adorable with the whole outfit and added so much funk to the whole look and so did the boots πŸ˜ƒ

Finally! Shilpa’s look 

   

  
    
 

My look was very autumny with my all black and a pop of blue kinda outfit! So I paired this beautiful maxi skirt with a plain black tshirt and over that I wore this laced denim crop top (courtesy my sister πŸ˜‹) and completed the look (which in my opinion was the best part of the look as well) with these super matching powder blue pumps. 

The light layering in every look made us believe it will be just right for a light winter or autumn and that’s why we went ahead with these outfits! What do you think? How would you have played with staples like short skirts, maxis and pants for autumn? Do let me know 😘😊

P.S. Thank you Pranav for making us so much prettier than we are with your amazing photography 😍

Seasonal Transitions – Spring! Fun Young and Colorful

Helloooo all you lovely people! I’m actually glad for a change the weekend is over! It was probably because I have such amazing things lined up for the week (hint hint) and I’m literally raring to go!! 

Anyway, all that can wait! Monday’s here and that only means one thing!! a new post is here! :* So while last week I gave you three styling ideas for summer – one with a skirt, one with a dress and one with a pant, today I’ll show you how the same three staples can be used to create looks for spring by changing just a few pieces here and there!! 

First up! Sandhya’s look 

 

So for Sandhya we interpreted spring to be the fun weather which requires a bit of layering because it’s still quite chilly!! So she wore a plain peach tshirt over her printed cotton dress to keep her warm and since knotting everything up is the trend now we thought knotting up the tshirt would give it that fun element! ToinkkkπŸ’‘!! 

   

Wazzaa jumping shot!! 😍 we kept the rest of Sandhya’s look simple with a pair of floral flip flops in place of the gladiators because..hey..floral means spring…duh πŸ˜‚haha!! 

Sandhya’s wardrobe (summer and spring) : dress – Reliance Trendz, Peach t-shirt and gladiator flats – thrifted Germany, Floral flip flops – thrifted Chennai 

Next, Anusha’s look 

  

For Anusha we decided to retain the Palazzo pants because they were airy comfy and colorful and we replaced to spaghetti lace top with a fitted almost body con type of tshirt because it keeps you warm and cozy again! However the top being black I quite dint find it too springy and hence decided the orange and blue statement necklace would be a perfect addition to the look! So there you have a nice springy and colorful Anusha!! 😍😘

  

   


Wazzzaa fun and candid pulling shot to show of the wideness of the palazzo pants!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜‚! Haha! I liked Anusha’s spring look the best because it looked so put together and yet so chic and comfy! 

Anusha’s wardrobe (summer and spring) : Palazzo pants – Akritti (by Pantaloons), fitted black top and lace top – Sandhya’s (I honestly don’t know where they are from :/ ), flats – Bata, watch – Timex, Statement necklace – the Fashionhub (Instagram account), blue aviators -myntra online 

Finally, Shilpa’s look 

  

My look was all about florals! I traded my plain orange top for this floral crop top to ensure it had the right amount of color (a.k.a a lot of color) to depict the weather! 

   

  
Wazzzaa Audrey Hepburn-esque pose!! 😝😝 so I completed my look by trading the flip flops for a pair of Zara golden flats (it looks like magic woven into a sandal! I swear!) and wearing my rounded cat eyed sunglasses in place of my aviators!   

Shilpa’s wardrobe (spring and summer) : Coral skirt – 19β€’F (from pantaloons), orange shirt – Only India, turquoise beaded necklace – forever21, animal print aviators – Claire’s, red flip flops – lotto online, floral crop top – Westside, rounded animal print sunnies – Polkadot and you (Instagram account), golden flats – Zara, boho beaded wristband – blue eye collection!  

That brings us to the end of the this week’s post! How would you transition from spring to summer with a staple piece? What defines spring and summer for you? What do you think about Sandhya Anusha and my looks? Do tell me! I’m all ears πŸ‘‚πŸΌπŸ‘‚πŸΌ 

I have told you this a million times but every now and again I want to tell all my readers a big thank you again! (here take a kiss each 😘) you guys are probably the most supportive and encouraging people and I need that now more than anyother time! Thank you more than most! Have an amazing week ahead! Xoxo!
