How to Dress Up for Business Meetings?

How to Dress Up for Business Meetings?

Hello Divas!
How are my favourite ladies doing?
So a lot of You have ask me quick tips on how to dress up on business meetings and other formal work events, where you can look chic, get effortless and business ready at the same time. So I am here to talk about it.

I recently had to attend this event which was super formal. I was on a clock that day,  it was a very busy day and I wanted to look my best because there was a very important business meeting just after that and since I was running short on time, on occasions like these, I usually prefer to wear something I don’t have to put in a lot of effort mixing and matching. So a formal maxi dress was my first preference. I narrowed down to this gorgeous cotton gown I got designed from Samshek. Not only it was super comfortable it was chic light and very, very easy to carry. It was a hot day and that’s when the material that was cotton came in very handy. The design is very simple and that somehow made the entire look very polished and that’s what I loved about this business formal maxi dress.

Samshek gives you the freedom to actually tweak the basic design on the website as per your needs. So if you are someone like me who doesn’t like to wear stuff off the rack, this is actually a very good opportunity for you to tweak the basic design on the website, choose from the many, many things you can change in your outfit and make a whole new one. I was surprised to see how simple changes like sleeve length, length of the dress, shape of the neck and back etc can transfer the entire dress. You may check this blog post for a whole new look to this very design. Not just this, Samshek gives you the liberty to choose from their list of materials too. #Wow

I chose this design as such, with a minor increase in length. I loved the subtle grey, hence I kept the details as such in the website. The dress comes with a side zipper to give your curves a better shape  I take the dress with the Turquoise blazer I got from stalkbuylove started off very sophisticated touch to my entire outfit. The shoes I chose word basic Clark’s stilletos (Clifton Bridge) they have never failed me.

 

No talking about the meeting it went well it was a sunny day like I said but since I chose since I choose the right fabric to wear it helped me focus on my work endless on the discomfort of the day. Also I kept the jewellery minimal it was this Emerald set my father got from me from USA. The lipstick I am wearing is from Maybelline,  the eyeliner is NYX, the mascara is again Maybelline, the blush is from the Body Shop.

When you are dressed right, you develop a sense of confidence in you that adds to your work without you realising it. I read it somewhere “nobody really has confidence this is all a game of projecting it at the right time and at the right place”. A lot of people ask me how I keep up my confidence I believe I just answered your question. And of course I like to dress well.

Dreams Sky High! 🙂

 

Hello Divas! How have my lovely ladies been? Well November has been quite a month for me, and before I could realize, it was December already! Well well well… I was supposed to be attending a hideous number of wedding ceremonies, but a girl’s gonna eat. And when writing buys you your food ticket, you better start it right away. So here I am sharing with you my experience with the some high heeled, floor length outfits that might blow your mind away.

Dress: Custom Made (Might contact me if you wish to purchase)
Jacket: Care of StalkBuyLove‘s
PomPom Kohlapuris: Local Business
Jewelry: Local Market
PhotoGrapher: Aman Bhandari

So my best friend is getting married in January(Yaayyyy), and I started my dress hunting approximately four months ago. I had ordered this gorgeous golden jacket a couple of days before this, hadn’t planned on how I will be using it. All good things take good time, and I took nearly three months to finalize one of the dresses (the rest two are yet to be searched) but I have found one, and I am hopeful the next one will be found very soon.
I was fiddling with the local markets one day, and as I laid my eyes on this golden yellow skirt, that was the point when I saw what I wanted. I wasn’t right there, but I could picture in my head how things might be if we tweaked it. I went straight into the shop, and learned we may work with what I want. And the result? was this gorgeous gorgeous skirt/Lehnga/dress. Now I was confused about using Golden or silver, but the result was so I was able to pull off both in the final look.

I kind of loved it. But I am very excited to learn about your reactions. This isn’t exactly my whole idea, but yeah a bit of tweaking was done to the basic design and voila! I had myself an all new dress.

As you may see, its majorly red (my favorite color), it has hints of golden, then we have a thick amount of silver too (but not too much) and offcourse my StalkBuyLove golden jacket (which I got on discount by-the-way, so Yayyy!). Here I have paired it up with pom pom kohlapuris, but they may always be paired with your favorite heels. I chose flats because:
1. I am really tall myself
2. The dress is already a bit heavy
3. I really, really loved the pompom kohlapuris! <3

I bring some news too! If you wish to get this dress, get in touch with me on my email curvydivachic@gmail.com. So how did you like this look? Do share it in the comment box below. Do not forget to like, share and subscribe to this blog. Let’s spread more and more love!

Blue Is Beautiful

 

Blazers for women
Blaze it Up!

Come along now, let’s go get you sorted.
An 80 year old and surprisingly fit and agile grandfather was heard saying the same to a beautiful young woman of 25 accompanying him, namely his granddaughter.
No grandpa let’s not get those blazers, let’s look for some more tees instead.
The young woman was all determination as she plonked herself beside her grandfather in front of the computer in the den. She was all of 25, soon to be attending a foreign university for higher studies. Her grandfather had taken it upon himself to shop online for his beloved granddaughter a month in advance. The granddaughter thought about her sartorial needs and zeroed in on casual more than anything else while her grandpa agreed to all her desires but insisted on only one blazer.
You never know when you’ll need it was his constant refrain. And despite his granddaughter’s refusal to get the same old fashioned blazer for herself, he had dragged her along to the computer and now sat transfixed at the blue blazer collection from Stalk Buy Love. He zeroed in on two particular favorites:

  1. Royal Blue Love Blazer- This blazer caught grandpa’s fancy on account of its lovely color, sober cuts and amazing presence.

  1. Lineage Blazer- This attracted grandpa on account of its street smart and lighter hue and of course, its simplistic yet supremely elegant design. Also, given account of the material, as it is pure linen, it’s perfect for summers.

He finally zeroed in on the first one for his granddaughter who left a month later for higher studies abroad. Little did she know that a forced online shopping sojourn on Stalk Buy Love would prove so handy when she was selected to present a prestigious paper at a conference of scholars by her university and the dress code clearly read Blazers for Women Speakers. She earned immense praise for her paper and the rest, of course, is history.
May you be blessed with Grandpa’s foresight and use the opportunity to snap up some attractive blazers from Stalk Buy Love.
