How To Be Your Own Boss Lady!

How To Be Your Own Boss Lady!
I have been a huge fan of Sari, I believe this is one of the most beautiful piece of clothing ever made. But like everyone has their own set of insecurities, I had mine. I refrained myself from this beautiful piece of clothing for so long, and I had no idea why. It was until recently that I gave it a thought and decided to try my very first Sari on. I had no idea I would feel so comfortable, so feminine in this piece of clothing. I loved every bit of wearing it. I got this beautiful Sari from Craftsvilla, and as you can see in the pictures, I enjoyed every bit of it.
Fashion is not about what others are doing, fashion is about what you want to do, and doing it! It’s an extension of who you are, where you see yourself. Being your own boss lady is the biggest motivation I can think of, on a beautiful, breezy Friday like today.
Now, how to be your own boss lady? Women like Anna Wintour, Meryl Streep, Adele were not made in a day. It took practice, courage and perseverance. Above all, it took a LOT OF failures to finally be who they are. As Rumi says, “break your heart till it finally opens up”.
The question is not just to be or not to be, the question is about being who you are, and projecting it to the world. but the first step is to know who you you are is the first place. So, who exactly are you? What make you, You? What is it that calls you? What do you dream about?
One of the ways to find out is to understand your instincts. What are your subconscious choices, what exactly calls you?
It’s not about the kind of people you are with, it’s about the kind of people you wish to surround yourself with. That is your true calling. You have been strong enough all your life to become who you are. The journey you have taken so far has made you, well, you. Then why shy away from now with who you can be? That dress you always wanted to pick? What stops you from picking it up now? What is stopping you from trying it on?
You know you want to were it. You know you want to try it on. You know that for once you want to feel how you’d look in it. Fashion opens up a whole new realm of your becoming. You wanna know how to be your own boss lady? Well, dress the part and feel for yourself. Imagine what and how you’d look like when you become when you become it. Feel the quality you wish to see in your clothing. Let the comfort seduce your mind so that you come up with ideas to reach that goal. Be what you wish to be.

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.


Dress: CurvesOnStyle
Location: Khama Ghani
Clutch: IGP

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.

Hello Divas!

New Year’s Eve 2017- the most awaited event of the year is around the corner and like always, I bring exciting news! Ladies! Brace yourself because Afamado has come up with an awesome All Black RSVP Ready Collection for your themed party. New year is around the corner and this is probably the right time to choose your New Year’s outfit. Use their “Made to Measure” feature and Afamado will make sure that the outfit fits like a glove.

I am wearing the V-Neck Cold Shoulder gown and might I just flaunt that I feel really plush in this beautiful gown? The cold shoulder details with an extra ruffle layer not only looks beautiful, but also adds to the comfort. Above that, the material is of high quality and is wrinkle free, so you do not have to worry about any last minute ironing hassles and enjoy your evening. Plus the dress feels the right weight so it flares just perfect, and doesn’t feel heavy at all. So the dancer in me is oh-so-happy because this is a no brainer, effortless look to pull off. Minimal and chic is how I kept it. One thing I loved about the fashion of 2017 is, the only rule is that there are no rules!

So my resolution for 2018 is what I have learned from this wonderful 2017. The only rule is that there are no rules! So let’s dress our best, pop the bubbly, clench the glasses and Slanche!  Bid adieu to this wonderful year you had and let’s begin a new one with more celebrations!

Until Next Time,
-XOXO-

Maleficent in Me

Maleficent in Me

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I love fairy tales. I have grown up hearing about those fantasy worlds, the beautiful, beautiful girls, who weren’t even aware how amazing they are, who stood by what they believed in. They came from  humble backgrounds and proved that money or birth has nothing to do with being a true princess. Cinderella was humble, Bella was wise and curious, Moana was an explorer, Pocahontas was a born leader. But the most iconic character who laid a huge impact on my mind, was Maleficent. I am not sure whether it was Angeline Jolie’s perfection as an actress and a role model, or the character’s depth, or the direction of the movie, or the combination of all, but I could see myself as a Maleficent. And that’s why I decided to keep it as the theme of my this photoshoot.

Mystique as it could be, I adore Maleficent.

 

Before I could ever know, I was Maleficent.
Love the off shoulder details and the cape.
The choker was a hand made present by a beloved friend. what do you think?
I love the fact that my watch matches with my outfit, like it was meant to be.
Thus I walk down the aisle, as I was supposed to do.
This is me, thanking Afamado, for the lovely design.

I saw this piece at Afamado and it was a love at first sight. I wanted one when I saw the Rebel Wilson in one of the award function shoots on google and I fell in love with this piece. (Needless to say, for plus size fashion, Adele and Rebel Wilson are my go to celebrity inspirations.) The quality speaks for itself, and the best part is that long cape with off shoulder details. It was oh so beautiful I couldn’t ask for more.

The design of this dress is bold, something you will need a lot of confidence and sass to carry, but if you are thinking “who the hell she thinks she is”, well, I’d say “someone who wanted you to ask the exact same question”. The best part about this outfit? Well, the cape! it shows off your curves yet hides the problem areas at the same time. The shoot was pretty interesting, and the pictures are right in front of you. So if you are looking for something to flaunt your curves to perfection, do check Afamado and sass that body!

Until Next Time,
-XOXO-

Dusty Shades of Rose

Dusty Shades of Rose

Hello Divas!
Hope my Ladies are doing great! With the Fall just in, the season calls for subtle and sophisticated blend of shades. What I fell in love with the most were the dusty shades of rose. I have had a thing for roses since I was a kid, and I remember we had a lawn full of the rose plants, with different shades. There was red, pink, and my favorite was the magenta and a bit dusty rose. Writing about it right now brings that breeze into my nostrils.
Anyway, I was amazed to find some real catches while scrolling through StalkBuyLove, and here are some of my favourite picks from the web-store.
1. HOUSTEN MAXI SKIRT: This one was a love at first sight. I love the colour, I adore the fall, this one’s a 10/10. The best part about it is that it’s a high-rise waist, so it is ideal to hide your problem areas. Pair it up with a frilled crop top and some sexy black stilettos and you own the party!

2. ROSE TIER TOP: I am in love with the design. From cold shoulder to the frilly details to the lacy ends, the rose tier top has everything that lakes it an ideal catch. This one without doubt is the whole package. Pair it up with a high rise pencil skirt and flaunt yourself!

3. ROSE THINLES TOP: Why go with the colour when you can have roses printed on your dress? The print on this crop top so reminded me of Adele’s Dolce Gabanna Dress in the video of “Send My Love” from her recently released album 25. The colour is subtle, the material is soft and breezy and it’s perfect for the any occasion when paired right.

4. FLAMINI CULOTTES: If you are into experimenting with fashion and are looking for something edgy, Flamini Culottes. Shaped like a peeping bud, flaunt those legs in these dusty rose pants and steal the show. Pair it up with your best stilettos and a subtle colour of top, and be the heart throb you are!

5. ROSE MYKONOS JUMPSUIT: The one reason I adore the concept of jumpsuits the most is that it saves the efforts of “pairing the stuff”. And if the jumpsuit is something as sexy as this one, it’s a bingo! For those high end business meets and dress to impress events, this is one effortlessly trendy piece and a must have for your wardrobe.

The past blog post was quite an experience for me. I am overwhelmed with the response I received from you lovely ladies. This encourages me to work harder. So thank you so much for being the darlings you all are and taking your time out and reading my blog posts.
The pre-fall was all about off shoulders and cold shoulders, and I was happy to discover how charming they look on any and every body type, especially mine 🙂 So if you are full figured and wand want to add jazz to your looks, try cold shoulders, you might amaze yourselves too! 🙂
Off shoulders are still in, and one of my friends who visited Singapore recently shared what a rage they were there. Well that kind of overwhelms my newly found love and respect for off shoulders. The one thing I have learned from the past shoot is that you can really, really surprise yourself in the most unexpected circumstances.
So ladies, go experiment with stuff you always wanted to do. Try that outfit you feel reluctant about, maybe you discover something amazing. And do share your experiences in the comment box below.
Like share and comment on this post. Your feedback helps me write better for you all. So do share your experience with this blog. Until next time!
