Pearls & bows.

Hey all you lovely people! I have so much to talk about but I wont get into all of it right now. One thing at a time. So to begin with I had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with a store here in Mumbai called Sapphire. It's owned by two gorgeous sisters Dipika and Divya Israni. When they contacted me I wasn't too sure if I wanted to go ahead with this. But when we got into a more detailed conversation and I saw the stuff from their store I instantly feel in love with most of the pieces! Their collection is very feminine and its a perfect one stop shop place for all the women! Their jewellery has got to be my favourite part! Its not only very different but its adorable and so versatile! Its a perfect blend of elegance and style. Love it! You'l be seeing alot of their pieces tuned into my outfits!


Now on to my look. I have been loving Nudes and Peaches since the past 2 weeks. They make me feel light and comfortable.I initially thought of pairing this peach-ish tank top with a pair of ripped blue jeans but then i decided to go a little out of the box with this black and white piece keeping the retro trend in mind. I hope you guys like the pictures!

I recently came across everybodyeverywhere.com and 8th March was the Polka Dots day! I was so amazed by the number of responses they got for their past such days (stripes, blazer day, etc). Anyway so i had to participate and this is my take on it! Do visit the site and check out the cool pictures that everyone's sent from across the world and also check out their cool DIY's on polka dots! And the entries are open till 8pm IST, so if you have any pictures with Polka dots, send in your pictures! Now on to my outfit! :)

Color Blocking?

Hello there! Its the weekend again! I sometimes feel like the entire week just flies! Anyway, so Ive been trying to do regular outfit posts because I know most of the viewers like looking at outfits! Personally I love looking at outfits myself, browsing through blogs, having a look at  perspectives of individual styles. I have done a post on a few of my favorite bloggers, have a look at them if you want here.


So i more often than not play super safe with my bottoms. But i went to Zara 2 days back, and i got the most amazing deals ever! I have being wanting to try these particular pants but I didn't want to invest too much in them because I know I'd use them very rarely. So this time when they were selling at the price of peanuts, I had to pick them up! And i did! And may i add, i think il use them more often than i thought i would. Zara's summer collection is mind boggling. The vibrant colours work as therapy. Feeling sad one of the days? Enter Zara. It might just help! Anyway so now on to the outfit i put together! :)


Before that just a few colour combinations off the top of my head that I think could give you the attention you need- red&pink; yellow&green; purple&pink; orange&red; blue&yellow; purple&yellow.








I like LOVE these shoes.

Orange-y.

Hey You! I'm quite excited. I was one  of the three Style Icons declared on Stylepile for this last month. Yay!! :) Do visit Stylepile, its a good dose of fashion!


Okay I don’t know if you guys have noticed yet, but black is my go to colour. It’s not like I don’t like other colours, but I somehow do end up incorporating black as one of the things in my outfit! Habit? Well I am going to try and get rid of it. Black is definitely not my favourite colour, it’s a habit colour. Do you guys have a ‘habit’ colour too?


Anyway so I got this jacket recently, and I don’t mean to brag but very seldom do i tend to repeat clothes, but I’ve owned this jacket for about 2 weeks now and I’ve worn it thrice, already! I love everything about it, the colour, the gold buttons, the shoulder padding, nothing’s wrong about it! I wore it with a dress once and twice the way I have in the pictures but with different shoes! It incorporates the nautical trend along with the current hot colour, Orange. It’s always good to have a piece like this one to add the burst of colour to a monotone outfit.

Just a few things I’d like to mention -

  • When buying orange, choose a tone according to your skin colour. Brighter hues would look better on fairer skins and warmer hues with darker. So always keep that in mind. Colours can do great things for you but if not worn in account to your skin, they could bring out your worse.

  • When buying stripes, keep your body type in mind. Vertical stripes can make you look broader, so if you are on the heavier side, avoid vertical stripes and go for horizontal ones. On the other hand horizontal stripes can make you look taller.

  • When using one bright piece, try keeping the others neutral. This will not only make the outfit look balanced but will also let that one piece grab all the attention.

  • Cropped jackets are a good way to substitute blazers on warmer days!
