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.

After all those festive lights and Diwali and new dresses, finally hails the much awaited season of the year, the season of exchanging vows, and I Do’s and the Saat Feras and crying and vidaayees and well, beautiful… beautiful bride… and her fleet of bridesmaids… Yes the time of the year has arrived, when its all about showing off the flou couture and those delicate fabrics and jewels. Ladies! Buckle up for the ultimate Indian Wedding season is ON!

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!

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.

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. 🙂

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! 😛
