Pretty in Pink: The Flower Power!

Pretty in Pink: The Flower Power!
Hey Divas!
A woman’s heart is like a flower: fresh, breezy, inviting, and always making space for someone who wants to be in it. The elements she carries breeze around and makes the best of what they are: subtle, soft, mellow, yet wild enough to burn you all at once.
This outfit from Shein.com is a reminder of the the above said things, with the botanical elements
and sheer love, the base colour brings the pink out of you, for you reflect what you see.

 

 

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.

The location I chose is one of my favourite places, and since we are looking for a little magic, I decided to colour my fairy dust pink. Do check out the websites to shop your favourite pick.

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.

The Power OF Being YOU

The Power OF Being YOU

Hello Divas,

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.

It doesn’t take a billion efforts to be yourself, it just takes one!

 

Well I love the candidness of this picture, and the bag too! *wink wink*
A bit more of the bag love…

The Unapologetic Curvy Boho

The Unapologetic Curvy Boho

The Unapologetic Curvy Boho
She is like the wind through the trees…
She is like the mellows in the meadows
She is the light of your star… the moon of my path…
She is the one I intend to be.

She’s there when you thought light dawned…
She stood by your side when life took you by the Frawn…
Amidst all that chaos she stood… Like a firefly tearing the darkness away…
Blinking its way through the wild and dark… She knew she’ll save you one day…

She’s here… She’s there… She’s everywhere you see…
She’s wild, she’s free… She’s all that you ever wanted to be…

The searching for something pose.

Hello Divas!

Today I am going to discuss something very important. Read this very carefully.

It’s one thing to be humble, it’s another thing to be self loathing. There is a bleak line between the two. Bleak, but powerful enough to destroy oneself completely. Being a plus size person, I have been judged way more than an average woman. Reason? We live in a visual world. And a lot of decisions are based on the appearance.

Don’t Judge the book by it’s cover.

A-12
God I am in love with beige!

But people often fail to understand that. So what do we do now? Well, we can’t please the world, but can take care of our own happiness. That’s what I did and the world became all red yellow green again.

Enough with the heavy! How have you been my lovely ladies? I had an amazing time working on the upcoming blog posts and I am so excited about sharing my experience with you all. I have been trying to post this blog since a while now, but couldn’t find the right words to put into So decided to keep it serene and amazing, even though I had to wait really long for a good blog post. So here I am, sharing my experience with you all.

P.S. I am not running away from the dog in the background. We are friends now!

The Shoot

The Venue: We chose Gulaab Bagh for the shoot, which is in Udaipur. It was initially a zoo, but the zoo now has been moved to a much bigger place now, which is now called the Biological Park. This place has since then been converted into a jogger’s park, open to public. Serene as it is, the most amazing part about this place is it’s greenery. It has both asphalt and non concrete grounds for the joggers to choose from.

Outfit: The dress was a love at first sight from StalkBuyLove, an online fashion store. The details of the co-ordinates  are oh-so beautiful, it made me go gaga over it the moment I laid my eyes on them. The belt is made up of lace, and has crochet work on it. What I loved the most was the details on the blouse, those dangling snow-flakish crochet droplets, that look like pearls. The outfit is so comfortable, the material is oh-so-soft that I can wear it everyday.  The blouse if fully lined, which is really important for the crush-crepe material. The skirt is partially lined, which gives a sassy sheer to the legs, but only against  the light. Overall, I loved the dress. 🙂

A-1
Protect the green! Go beige!

 

A Few Realizations I Had After This Shoot:

• If you have broad shoulders and big arms, cold shoulders are for you! They divide the attention and thus make you look prettier.
• Coordinates surprisingly suit me well. So I am open to more experimentation now.
• Dogs Love me .😉
• Green background enhances your look, or maybe I am more of a nature person.
• Candid shoots are the best.
• It’s very important to have fun during shoots, for better pictures, and off course you have a hell of a day!
• Nudes and Beige colors may surprise you more than you think.
• If you don’t know what to do while you pose, Try Looking for something on the ground, or look for somebody. (JOEY Reference: Only hard-core FRIENDS fans will understand this).
• I lost two rings in this shoot . 🙁 
• I am indeed an Unapologetic Curvy Boho!
• I looooovvveeeee laughing out loud… And my laughter is so contagious it can make people go Bizarre and red in the cheeks with laughter! With laughter! [My photographer, the crew members and the people who were around agree with me].
• Mosquito Repellents might come handy at a location like this. [And I mean it!]
• Carry an extra pair of flat footwear in a location like this. Heels may dig in the soil. Use heels for the camera, and flats for hopping spots for the shoot.
• Your photographer works really hard on the shoot. Always be thankful to him for that.
• The ultimate challenge was to figure out what to do with your hands while getting shot! 😛

About Denim and Flou: For the Glamazon IRL

Denim, Flou and the plus size me. Seems like this season is screaming Fashion in every sense possible!. With the onset of summer 2016, did trend the ultimate, everlasting fashion necessity- Denim. Denim is the all time basic fashion. It would be a shame to call Denim a mere “trend”. Denim is truly fashion, never ending, always in. Not only it is comfortable, it is the easiest hack for the quickest chic look there is. Just throw in some Denim, add a splash of Flou and Bam! You got yourself a Goddess! #Diva

Lucky for us Denim Fashion 2016 does come in a lot of forms to rock up the most comfortable material there is for any-event-you-name-it. Be it regular Denim pants, or skinny jeans, or skirts, maxi dresses, even bikinis, Denim has practically found its place everywhere.

Okay so this is my first #LookBook ever, so please be kind. 🙂

For my first LookBook, I decided to choose the Elegant Diva Maxi Dress By StalkBuyLove. And since I looveeee neon, I decided to pair it up with a Flou bag and Neon pink shoes. Now I have created both classy and sassy looks by merely choosing two different kind of shoes.

The classy Ladida in me chooses nothing but stilettos. And my love for accessories can be easily seen in the pictures. I loved the flow of the dress. it’s proper- neither too much neither too less. The length also is perfect. Especially for a 5’8” ish plus size person like me, length becomes a major hurdle while choosing clothing. The dress fits like a charm. And above everything, its super comfortable. #Awwwww

Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
Throw in a bunch of accessories and go Awesome in Seconds. A pair of Stilettos makes the look super elegant.

 

I chose the coral nudge bag that goes perfectly with my Flou stilettos. The bag again has been purchased from #StalkBuyLove. Ladies, if you want some serious dope collection for handbags, which give you an edge of quirky and elegance at the same time, look no further than StalkBuyLove.  Nt only the color is amazing, the quality is amazing too.

Go Matchy Matchy. Neo on Neo. Just accessorize 🙂

 

Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
Denim and Flou- Just can’t get enough of them!

I believe styling for a plus size person is more fun, you get more space to style. #InsideJoke

It’s all about wearing the confidence and smile, and SWAG. #IGotIt 🙂

 

Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
Denim and Flou- Classy and Sassy at the same time.

The Dress: I couldn’t find anything more perfect for my summer look than this dress. I am particularly in love with the sleeve length of this dress. Its neither too short, nor too long. Its appropriate. The material is extremely light weight, comfortable and soft. The color is oh-so-denimish-blue. The dress is easy to carry.It has a side zipper for a better fit.

 

Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
Right bag. Right shoes. Right Music. Life sorted.

The Bag: The bag is coral nudge by StalkBuyLove. Now this baby is a great find. It’s faux leather, so supports my support for the love of animals. (So Yay!). The color is the most significant part on the outside, but its actually the quality that takes the cake. It comes with an attachment that can be used to turn it into a sling bag as well. The bag has goldden zippers, is quite spacious and can be ideally used by the office goers as well.

Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
Sometimes, all you need is a little sunshine!

 

 

Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
For the wild and fee you. You go girl!
Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
Red lips. Black glared. Perfect shoes. Dress that screams ME! yes, I am ready to win the world.

 

Denim and Flou- For those lazy Sunday brunches and casual dates
Oh my love for coral. And sneakers. Can I wear them forever???

Well my personal favorite look is going to be the one with the sneakers. What would you choose? Sneakers or the stilettos? Ask me here if you need any assistance with personal styling.
