The Right Shade Of Red

The Right Shade Of Red

There is a red made for every woman, and a woman who knows her red, ain’t supposed to be messed with. If I were a color, I know I’d be red. I am a Ruby Woo on my lips, Merlot for my hair, crimson on my feet and I know for a fact that I am Marcella on my Gowns.

The people who know me closely know one thing about me, I love Adele. She is my lady crush, someone I look up to, I believe it was her who made me fall for fashion for the plus in the first place. it all started when I first saw her ever famous Albert Hall Concert on YouTube (“Set Fire to the Rain” is still my favorite).

The idea for this outfit started had seeded in the moment when I had watched Adele online in a concert where she was wearing this beautiful Marcella gown and was performing in front of thousands of fans. As I have mentioned earlier, Kritika (owner, CurvesOnStyle) and I have had long conversations before finalizing the outfits for me.
We discussed how I wanted a Marcella off-shoulder gown, with a free long flow skirt that’d make me wanna twirl. And it did make me wanna twirl, all the time, during the shoot, as you may see in the pictures. Now I didn’t want my skirt too fluffy, so we didn’t use a can-can here, but one may totally use it under the skirt, to add that princess fluff to the gown.
The best part about this outfit was that it was so light-weight I loved it. The outfit is fully lined and simply pretty. CurvesOnStyle paid particular attention to the color and fall of the skirt, something I wanted specifically right.
The place we chose here was a beautiful restaurant in Udaipur called Khama Ghani. This place is the perfect blend of hospitality and ambiance. And the food? Well, it was amazing!
It was a fun shoot, I had a great time. I felt so pretty in this dress, and I couldn’t help twirl most of the time. CurvesOnStyle was really helpful designing this outfit for me.

Work in Style: Summer Work Wardrobe Editon (In collaboration with Samshek.com)

Work in Style: Summer Work Wardrobe Editon (In collaboration with Samshek.com)
CurvyDivaChic For Samshek

There is nothing classier than a well fitted dress, and I am glad to have found an online solution in Samshek.com  that not only gives me a huge variety of well fashioned designs to choose from, but also gives me the liberty to customize my dress according to my needs. Not only this, I even get o choose the material of the dress, from the list of mentioned materials for the available design, which is really, really cool!

Summer is all set and so is the time for loose, subtle clothing that makes it easy to beat the heat yet make you look chic and elegant. Did you know that the level of comfort directly affects the work efficiency?  So we may start with the clothing.  Choosing a comfortable yet elegant work wardrobe in this scorching heat can be a task. As they say, fashion may change, but style remains. A bit of this and that may help you look smart, office ready without compromising with your comfort, yet keep your style. A few things to make sure your work wardrobe are all about comfort, yet chic to make necks turn, wherever you go.

Outfit Details

The Design: I was in love with the corporate collection, where you can find oh-so trendy professional clothes, and get to tweak the design and customize your own dress. Now my curvy diva chic out there know how difficult it can be for us to find our right sizes off the shelf, so it can be really,  really beneficial for you to make your own dress. Like here I have chosen the following details for the dress:

  • Front Puritan Neck
  • Back slit neck
  • Basic 3/4 sleeves
  • Inverted Box pleads on skirt
  • Conceal side zip
  • Relaxed Fit
  • Color: Cool Pink

The material: This summer, make comfort your mantra. Now comfort doesn’t mean you cannot look stylish. Choose an outfit that is made out of summer friendly material, preferably cotton or Crepe that lets your skin breathe. Here I have chosen woven cotton for this dress that is oh-so-soft and oh-so-chic in the color “cool pink”, which lives up to its name. The quality of the material is very light weight, breathable and extremely comfortable. This summer I am all about skirts and dresses for work, and Samshek surely does have a very fine list of smart dresses to pick from.

Styling Tips: There are a couple of ways to style the outfit. I wore this dress to work in the morning and was complimented on the way I looked. I paired it up with a scarf and let my hair loose. I also wore a tan belt and my classic Clark’s Clifton Bridge shoes which happen to be my all time favorite too.

In the evening I was supposed to attend a party. Since I was running late, I went to the party directly. All I did was retouched my make-up (on the go), put on my favorite Voylla Ear Loops, and Voila! I was good to go. I got so many compliments for my look and this is how I turned my work wear to party wear.

Style up ideas: Five Closet Essentials for Summer 2016

Style up ideas: Five Closet Essentials for Summer 2016

Hello Divas! Hope you all are doing great!
As summer has brightened, so has the desire to have a perfect summer collection. Lucky for us, this season is all about colours, and colors are what we love! Although there are millions of ways to style up and unleash your inner diva, I have summed up the five closet essentials of Summer 2016.

Here are the 5 closet essentials for summer 2016:
1. Scarves: Always carry a scarf before you go out in the sun. Scarves not only protect your skin from the scorching heat, but also styles up your outfit. Play with the colors, go chic with the beautiful designs. So for those road trips you take, just wear your shades, throw on your sexy scarf over your favourite tank top and denim shorts, and you are good to go!

 

 

 

Scarves are an instant hack to your overall look

2. Dresses: The best thing about dresses is that you don’t have to spend a lot of time deciding on how to pair two pieces of clothing. It’s the most time saving piece of fashion. And above everything else, they are oh-so-comfortable. Plus they look cute! You may pair them with your favorite heels, or simple flipflops, or follow the latest trend and wear them with heels. So go ahead and get yourself that dress you always wanted to wear. Dresses are a strict closet essential for summer2016.

3. Denim: You can never go wrong with denim. As they say, when in doubt, wear denim. Denims are a rage this season. Not only because they are super comfortable, but also because they are not available in super sexy forms. Go rugged, denim on denim,  denim on dress, denim on short or anything your style sense asks you to do.So what is it for you this summer? Denim Shorts, or shrugs or shirts, or simple jackets?

4. Swimwear: With great summer, comes the fab swimming season. This is that time of the year where you can flaunt your curves with the perfect swim wear. Be it a two piece or a body suite that you might want to embrace this summer, Thanks to the growing fashion industry, we now have the sexiest range of swimwear and beachwear. You may even pair your bikini tops with shirts and shrugs. Happy tanning!

5.Skirts: There cannot be anything more feminine than a perfect pair of skirt. Do some wild experiments and go crazy with the mix and match. You can never go wrong with a red lipstick, to complete your look. Long, short or medium, you may never go wrong with skirts. Long, short, mid-length, choose your length, build up your style and bam we have a diva!

 

The idea is to have fun while experimenting with your looks. The only rule for Fashion 2016 is that there are no rules. And if you need any help with shopping, you may always ping me here. Just follow your heart, do what you like, wear what makes you feel sexy, feel awesome. Wear your best smile, and spray some inner confidence, and you are good to go! And if you need any help with, A.L.’s right here for you!

Ever Beautiful and Classic Maxi Dresses!

01

When it comes to maxi dresses, if can safely be said that these are some of the most beautiful and comfortable dresses for women. These dresses have a classic style and aesthetic of their own that is really attractive to say the least. These dresses will never go out of vogue and this has been seen time and again. When it comes to maxi dresses, what women essentially love are the engaging designs of the same. These dresses have always had a timeless appeal of their own and that is what keeps them ticking on the fashion charts till date.

But enough of the eulogy to maxi dresses (though well deserved). Let’s talk of how pivotal a role they play in making us look good at multiple occasions. If you ask any fashionista worth his/her salt, you’ll get the same answer, i.e. these dresses have a vibe and a charm that is somewhat ethereal and are perfect for summers. They can be worn both at night and during the daytime. They can be utilized in stylish and flattering ways for multiple occasions. From super formal events to parties and other occasions, these dresses are pretty versatile when it comes to wear ability for several occasions.

 

Gwen Maxi Dress

You may always wear these dresses for women at all those black tie affairs (they might seem a little less dreary in this case!) that you simply have to attend. Opt for a spectacular yet slinky dress and you can team it up with the choicest heels for added effect. You can actually rework your evening outfit for the daytime as well in case you wear flats and use a simple t-shirt in white underneath. Black is definitely the color to opt for in this scenario. You’ll definitely look like a stunner at all the black tie events that you attend.
You can also wear maxi dresses when you’ve just got off work and want that charming off duty look. You can simply pull on a leather jacket (advisable only in winters unless you want people thinking you’re from desert climes!) and trainers and you have the perfect outfit for casual outings after work. However, make sure that you get the right cross body bag and sunglasses in case there is still light on the horizon! Additionally, your dress should sit just a little below your ankle and nothing more. You can even wear these dresses on those exotic beach side vacations you take with your hubby/friends. You can wear floating and flowing dresses during the day at the beach and white is the go-to color for sure! You can opt for nice off-shoulder dresses for women in this regard along with ones that have tassel strap detailing.

In case your city does have a race course (not everyone is that lucky!), the maxi dress is a nice race day bet. Think of sauntering up to the pavilion like Her Majesty the Queen herself in a nice, billowing and elegant maxi dress. You can wear this dress with a full skirt and add a stylish pair of sunglasses to complete the look. While you’re at it, don’t forget your hat! You’ll also be surprised to know that you can wear maxi dresses to work if you are a little intelligent enough (we women anyway are!) since some tweaking is required. You can opt for shirt-like fabrics for the workplace that are crisp and layer your dress with a smart looking trouser. You can even team up the ensemble with a well structured jacket when it is a little colder. A block heel shoe completes the look to perfection.

As we mentioned earlier, the maxi dress is perfect for summer (which is now!) and hence you should snap a couple up before it’s too late to actually enjoy the sheer comfort and elegance they bring to the table. Hot summer days should see you in floral printed dresses with comfy fabrics and low suede sandals. One of our colleagues recently mentioned that the only thing more comfortable than a maxi dress was a yoga-tee with shorts and we can’t help but agree!

Here’s to creating that infectiously classy effect at all gatherings/vacations/outings this summer!
