How are my favourite people in the world doing? I have been thinking about you, and I wanted to bring the best to the table, hence took a sabbatical from work for some time and came up with this. Yes, I took some time off from everything, only to be brought back to the best of what I have, so as to bring the best to you guys. I read a lot, inculcated the habit of writing, and that helped.
Shein.com has a lot of affordable choices to choose from, they are stylish, chic and they bring something different to the table, as they have connected a lot of brands under one single umbrella.
I decided to style it simple, this one, as it didn’t need much. But even Cinderella wanted pretty shoes, so I paired it up with my pink pumps. And the bag, well, I chose to keep it subtle to balance the pink, with a beige bag (well, it does have a coral lining, but that’s my silver lining) from FabAlley. By the by, FabAlley has come up with a new brand for ethnic wear, called Indya, and their carefully curated deigns are what a modern mind needs.
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 have reached the point in time where I am finally comfortable in the skin I am in but that wasn’t always the case. This not only resulted in a low self-esteem but also kept me away from discovering my style as well. For a very long time in my life, I did not wear skirts. Sometimes due to social obstructions, sometimes due to my own mental inhibitions. But I have always admired long, flared skirts that trail behind your legs, especially the low high maxi skirts.

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!

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.

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!
Recently I was invited to cover the event for the launch of Pavas Group’s store launch of their Label “Kashana” in Jaipur. The launch was held on 25th January 2017 (yesterday that is) at JDA shopping complex, Amrapali circle, Vaishali Nagar, Jaipur. I cannot wait to tell you all about it.
As I reached the store, I was so in love with the subtle decorations. It was an Oh-So-Amazing moment. So this is how the store looked like, as we entered it.
The apparel screams quality and the designs will make you shop till you drop. The store has a very subtle combination of clothing at really reasonable prices. The sizes vary from Size S to XXL, so there is something in store for everyone.
The collection has shades different shades of Indian, Chic, Boho, Casual, Western and Chic, so indeed when I say there is something for everyone, I know I am right. The quality of the products is high end (I believe I already said that), and the prices are really really reasonable (So they are pocket friendly too).
The store has three different rows to it, and each row has a different taste to offer. To the left you will find Kurtas, Dresses, and Maxi Dresses. The central row has the “chic” genre- bomber jackets, lace tops, crochet work and so on. The right row has boho, casuals, and every day wear. I know I have mentioned this before, but I am doing it again, the quality of the products is really really great.
Though I had vowed to NOT buy anything, because let’s face it, I shop like a dog unleashed, but I did anyway, and I have NO regrets. And to tell you a secret, my best friend’s getting married, and I couldn’t find anything for her cocktail night, but now I have one. So Yayyyy!
So the next time you are in Jaipur, do visit “Kashana” and shop you events, emotions out. There is something for everyone in here, and I am glad I found my something at the first sight. Yes, the red dress has been spoken for. And for those in Udaipur who wish to buy this dress, please contact me for I can get it arranged for you to buy it.

Until Next time,
Today I am going to talk about something very important. So read it carefully. To brief you up, this post is about encouraging people to be themselves, a journey to self-finding. And my journey path involves fashion, so that too.
Right from our childhood, we have been compared to something or the other. Sometimes it’s about who scores better in class, or who is better at sports and so on and so forth. Everything is scaled. And there was someone always better than you, and this someone mostly was that mean kid in the neighbourhood whom you hated to the bone. But does that make you any less? NO!
You grow up into the person you are today. You are nice, kind and everyone loves you. Well, not everyone. You are not the convenient choice. Why? Because you don’t look a certain way the so called “society” wants you to look. The question is, who the hell is this society? The bunch of people who are so empty on the inside they can’t control their own shit, but expect everything and everyone around them to be “perfect”. But does that keep you from being your best self? NO!
They say “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. Well, the idea of beauty has changed it is definition over the years. Sometimes it is stick thin. Sometimes it is fuller. Sometimes it is athletic. But mostly, it is something you don’t have. Let’s talk about UGLY now. It could be the fat around your tummy or maybe all over your body. It could be the acne on your face. It could be a mark from an accident. But does that make you any less beautiful? Effing NO!
The difficulty with being nice is that you are expected to be good at everything and with everything. Why? Because the same shithead society doesn’t understand is that there is a limit to everything. Even to being nice. Because to them, that harmless joke on our bodies, our appearance, our clothes, wasn’t JUST a harmless comment. It meant something. (It took me 24 years to be comfortable in my skin, because I was being nice to the people around me. Nice means not replying back when they bluntly shamed me for what I am.) I wonder how many more of me might be out there, listening to the tantrums, every day, with no escape to that body shaming. But did that actually shame us? NO. What it did was make us wise enough to laugh at them, for we are beautiful the way we are, thick or thin. But you, Yes YOU dear society, show how ugly you can be. And do we give a damn to you? HELL NO!
Independence: Well, the mind is still without fear, per se. Feisty is now trending (And Always Will Be). So be the feisty you. Say NO to what you don’t like. Walk off it. You do not owe anyone any explanation. You deserve the best. You just deserve it. Say YES to what you wish to do. Be YOU. Because at the end of the day, you are your own saviour, your own hero, your own self. AND NOBODY, NO EFFING BODY CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU. SO OWN IT. OWN IT LIKE YOU HAVEN’T KNOWN OWNING ANYTHING ELSE.
