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.

New Year’s Eve 2017- the most awaited event of the year is around the corner and like always, I bring exciting news! Ladies! Brace yourself because Afamado has come up with an awesome All Black RSVP Ready Collection for your themed party. New year is around the corner and this is probably the right time to choose your New Year’s outfit. Use their “Made to Measure” feature and Afamado will make sure that the outfit fits like a glove.
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!
So my resolution for 2018 is what I have learned from this wonderful 2017. The only rule is that there are no rules! So let’s dress our best, pop the bubbly, clench the glasses and Slanche! Bid adieu to this wonderful year you had and let’s begin a new one with more celebrations!
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,
They say the longest sentence you can form with two words is “I Do”. 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!
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.
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 email@example.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
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…
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.
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.
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 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! 😛

Globalization has been able to charm us successfully in all possible ways and so deeply that we can feel its direct effects in our daily lives like the way we dress up nowadays. The western culture with its easy influence has moved us away from that time when we used to dress up in our traditional Indian outfits. The Indian fashion scene has also evolved and changed over the years resulting in our happy acceptance of the styles of dressing which are so western in flavor.

Majority of the sites dedicated to online shopping, also stock all the premium brands while all of them offer amazing collections that also are designed and manufactured in-house.

And why not, since this let more and more people spread all over the world get access to the latest designer dresses on the Internet, which is after all, mutually beneficial, if you realize.

Online shopping is now the most comfortable way to access and stuff our closets with the latest designs of all women dresses.
It goes without saying that women do have an undefined connection with shopping, which includes shopping for latest dresses as well as tops for women. We the women constantly look to add latest styles to our collection of clothes and add freshness to our wardrobe. For this purpose, we need stock our collections with tops for women as well, since they are not only convenient but also offer a great diversity in the ways we can dress up. It is beyond imagination how versatile tops for women can be and how much they have to offer us for the love of experimenting with styles. Tops for women are found in all imaginable lengths, shapes and sizes and prints and patterns making them suited for wearing to office, to parties and for that matter to any damn place that comes to our mind. And what more, they can be combined with any kind of bottoms like pants or jeans or skirts to bring in more diversity to the way we look. You can wear ladies tops every day as well for certain special occasions too.

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:
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.
