Suede Love

Image
When we talk about winter trends, the one fabric with which all of us can easily relate to is suede! Tricky as it requires alot of care but definitely a staple in the wardrobe. This fabric is known to exude a very Seventies vibe, if styled right. So when I was planning my AIFW looks for this season, I knew I had to incorporate this trend to my outfits. I picked these suede wide legged pants from Ajio but found them to be quite simple for the look I had visualised, so I customised it by putting an embroidered border on both the sides.

Paired it with a basic black tee because the OTT layer that I had planned would ideally amalgamate with the same. To uplift this basic combination I added a hand-painted denim jacket to the look & voila it was a statement piece in itself! What I love about a handmade piece is that you're the only one sporting it & it makes you stand out from the regular crowd.

Finally, slipped into these metallic gold pointed pumps & carried this trendy litt…

ToSave Haul

Image
It's been a while since I have been trying different international websites to shop, not just for an experience but also the price at which they offer the products which are otherwise available at a huge margin here! 
Would you be surprised if I tell you that I manage to pick nine ubercool products for less than $20 (almost INR 1300)! Yes that's hardly any amount with the kind of products you'll see me talking about in this post today. Since, I was pretty much satisfied with the overall experience with ToSave, I decided to do this haul post for you all to decide.

Most of you about my fetish for earrings, so these ought to be the first thing that caught my eyes. And the good part was that these were available at half the price of what they are being sold in renowned flea markets in Delhi.

Review | Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor

Image
Being someone who prefers matte over creamy, gel or any other texture for a matter of fact that it has a longer stay, looks rich & intense, laying my hands on Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor was like going totally in the opposite direction of my kind of beauty products! But since I heard rave reviews about this range by the international bloggers, I knew I had to give it a try.


Though the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor range is available in 15 beautiful shades, I picked five of them for this review. I loved the variety of hues offered & the fact that these lipsticks a really moisturising & keeps your lips hydrated, that you don't even require to wear a lip balm underneath.

Festive | Modern

Image
Whenever we talk about picking outfits for the festive season, the first style that comes into our mind is ethnic! While I feel one can experiment alot with their looks & it does not necessarily have to be completely ethnic, so I decided to create an unconventional look that you can sport this festive season & not go the mainstream way!


For this look, I picked a co-ord set to add a dash of sass to your festive look. One can easily pull this look off to the pre-diwali parties or at the time when you head out for festive gifting and more. 


Keeping the festive mood intact, I chose a vibrant pairing of wide legged pants & a crop top, in floral pattern. I decided to utilise the tie-up on the pants and tied it in a criss-cross manner from the back over the top.



Indian festivals are all about going a little extra with the jewellery! But for this being modern contemporary look I chose to go with statement footwear with pearl embellishments & matte gold druzy earrings.

Dress over Jeans

Image
I don't know about you but I, for a matter of fact, make sure to dress up keeping in mind the area I am visiting to! So when I decided to visit the Bada Imambara in Lucknow, I chose to go the fusion way by pairing a beautifully embroidered dress over a pair of dual shade denims.  Bada Imambara, like I mentioned before, is a mosque which obviously has religious sentiments attached to it. Respecting that it became a lot more important for me to to choose an outfit which doesn't offend others & do not make me awkward amidst the crowd! 
But instead of the good old traditional, I very thoughtfully created a contemporary attire.

Picked this stunning off-white dress for its intricate details & unconventional hemline and paired it up with mom jeans with colour-block pattern!
To add some statement to the look I side swept my hair & added this oversized, handmade Maharani earring just on one side. Err, do Nawab & Maharani get along? Finally, a pair a sneakers because the …
