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).

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!
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.
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!
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.
