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.
Well, I couldn’t understand the attraction, but I realized this is one part of my personality I need to embrace. So one fine day, I decided to get over my mental obstruction just got one for myself. I am a huge fan of Pinterest, and learning cello has been on my bucket list. So one day I was googling about cellos, and I came accidentally landed on a page with very beautiful styling pins for cellists. I funnily was reminded of Master Oogway’s statement from “Kungfu Panda” that said: There are no accidents. I believe the man was right!
I came across a beautiful ensemble of a plain white tucked in shirt and a wide belted high-waisted floor-length skirt. The collar was tastefully lifted just right, and the lights were perfect in the picture.
That’s when it hit me, I got my inspiration for an outfit. All I needed was a designer who’d do the same for me. Lucky for me, I learned about CurvesOnStyle on Instagram. Kritika is a fashion designer based out of NCR (Faridabad) and boy is she amazing! I called her up and we had a long discussion on how I wanted my designs to be. She was very patient and great at visualizing my ideas. We had a detailed discussion about what would suit my body type, what materials should I wear that would be comfortable and look chic at the same time. She also designed the shirt, which is lined, so I don’t have to worry about it to go see through.
I absolutely loved what I received, I had a lot of fun at the shoot as well. I wore the outfit to work one day and people loved it. The location chosen for this shoot is this beautiful cafe called Cafe lazy Beans. The place has hand-painted pictures of characters of pandas. I am a fan of the wall with all the beautiful frames.

Fashion for the curvy is a bit more complicated than the normal sizes as each one of us have our own problem areas. CurvesOnStyle not only designed this beautiful ensemble but also helped me learn more about my body type, and what would look better on me. Her Instagram page displays her couture work and the designs are so chic.

So here I am sharing with you my experience with the some high heeled, floor length outfits that might blow your mind away.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
