My Zaful Haul

Image
As mentioned in my last post, we are often doubtful about the quality of the stuff that we'll receive while shopping on a website for the first time. So when I got to know about the Zaful Anniversary Sale, I decided to order a few items so as to experience the whole process with them & eventually let you all know whether it was worth it or not.
Before going to the items I would like to give few tips if you plan to shop on Zaful for the first time: Invest in classic pieces - Do not pick anything fancy or dramatic as the chances of such products being a let down are more than the basics. Go for denims, shirts, jackets and more.Opt for products showcasing a model try-on - Not every product on Zaful has that option, so to be on the safe side seeing how your pick would look on a model gives you alot more assurance.Accessories & bags are a must have - This being tried & tested plus after watching so many Zaful haul videos, I can vouch for their accessories like sunglasses, bel…

Not Just Picturesque

Image
Ever since I started blogging, one of the most heard statements for me would be 'OMG you are so photogenic!'. For someone who was petrified of getting passport photos clicked, did not have a single selfie in her phone & hated posing in front of the camera to this, is rather amusing to say the least. I see young girls who wish to start their fashion blogging journey getting haywired about which camera to choose, which software to use to edit the pictures but never posting a single query about content. While I understand that pictures are important but that's definitely not the only thing that makes you a blogger. 
I have seen influencers with some amazing visual content writing material that has absolutely no relation & clarity about what they wish to convey. They either end up copy & pasting what the PRs send them or write something that'll leave you confused. I feel that all the hardwork that they've put in to bring out such breathtaking pictures is wort…

How I Wore A Corset Belt

Image
I don't think anyone expected a 'Corset Belt' to pop up into the fashion circuit & become one of the most raging trends of the season! While internationally we see them in many styles be it in lace, quirky prints or with embroidery, but here we are offered limited options to choose from.  Not that I am complaining because the one that I picked, well, I had been wanting the same since quite some time. 
Now coming to styling it, we all know that corset belts act like mid-riff clinchers which basically accentuates your waist, eventually giving you an hourglass figure like appearance! A perfect pick for curvy women but for a skinny one like me, it is very important to style it right so as to not end up looking slimmer than you actually are.  Therefore, instead of picking a bodycon, I chose an oversized sweatshirt in light color and layered this black lace corset belt over it. It drew attention to the waist & easily added sass to the attire! I wanted to create a fusion loo…

My favourite international shopping website

Image
We all love to shop online and I am sure that we must be having our favourite websites that we swear upon. While we do have many Indian websites stocking some really good stuff, but my indefinite search to buy something unique, eye-catching & extremely affordable bumped me into this amazing website called Zaful! And trust me when I say that currently it is one of my favourite international website to shop apparel & accessories. While initially, I too was sceptical about paying huge shipping or custom charges but after going through their shipping information I was shocked to see that they charge very nominal shipping fee on orders below $30 and if you shop for more than $30, the shipping is absolutely FREE! The order takes about 10-15 days to reach to you without any hassle! We all know that International fashion trends take a lot of time to reach the Indian market therefore we end up sporting that particular trend after a really long time, but with Zaful I was able to shop the …

How to Style a White Shirt

Image
Before posting the final video, I got a lot queries as to what exactly is this #WhiteShirtProject all about! You guys know how in the past I have created different looks by using one piece in common, well my this association with DLF Promenade too, was on the same lines. They asked me to create seven looks using one white shirt & also gave me themes to style the looks accordingly. While my work was limited only till the video, I decided to create this post only to share the thought behind each look & how I decided to not let the shirt look monotonous in all the looks.  Shirt - Van Huesen
MONOCHROME For this theme, I decided to create something ideal for transition from work to dine-out! I paired the shirt alongwith a highwaist pencil skirt & added a sleek gold belt to accentuate the attire. I buttoned the cuff right above my elbow to give puffed shoulder illusion to the shirt & inverted the collar to give it a blouse like appearance.  Added these sassy pair of mules & s…

In Quest Of

Image
In quest of? In quest of reality in this made up digital world. In quest of quality amidst the high numbers!  We often come across memes & videos talking about social media vs reality, where we are shown how people twist & lie about their lives for mere likes & appreciation from their digital fam! Are we living a digital lie? Well, may be not completely but there must have been certain posts that you may have come across only to feel and question 'is it for real?' If I compare my life before & after being a digital influencer, I actually notice alot of difference from a point where, I used to enjoy my food without clicking a single picture to days where I used to dress my best and not get upset over not having shot that outfit. Not that I don't love what I do now but those carefree days are surely missed sometimes!
One thing that I always stuck on to is to never pretend to be someone who I am not in real life, create genuine, substantial content, wear outfits no…
