Color Blast

Long time no see, isn't it? Well, blame it all on the monsoon. :(

I thought it would be perfect to go visit my folks during this one month break  from college and so I rushed home (yeah!!). Well, I was super excited of course, not just because I was going *HOME* but also because I could finally play dress up! :D

Though I am not really a big fan of loud colors (on me, as I come out as too garish :P), I reeeeeaalllyy wanted some brightness around! So I decided to try the *Prints-on-Prints* trend. I was really doubtful about the look, but then it was just-so-comfortable, I just had to go with it!

Now, before I go about how I styled my prints-on-prints look, here are some DO's and DONT's of this trend.

  • There are really no hard and fast rules as to how to wear this look, but the safest way to do it is to keep things clean with a uniform print from head-to-toe!
  • If you want to be more experimental, go ahead and wear prints head-to-toe and they don't have to match! Just keep in mind the accessories though! Refrain from using very loud statement accessories. You already have too much on and you wouldn't want to look like a bandwagon!!
  • One of the *don'ts* of this trend is to wear ill-fitted outfits. Being a statement in itself, if the fit is not snug, it will only make you look ugly (or even scary!) and nobody ever wants that. In short, try to keep the fit as snug as possible ;) !
  • Pulled back hair and nude make-up is the best way to show off your statement prints but you can choose otherwise (like I did :D) 

I paired my crazy print leggings with a floral vest. The leggings are a cheap find from a thrift store in Bandra. The color contrast is a complete stunner! 

The black floral vest is from atmosphere. I accessorized the look with spiked necklace from RaastaChaap (buy here) and my black studded sling. As I was travelling, I put on my most comfortable black brogues.

I am on the heavier side so I chose to throw on a sheer blue shirt/top to cover my behind. Not only does it cover my back, but it also gives an illusion of a thinner me ;) 

Now, does this post give you a reason enough to make colors your wardrobe's best friend this season?

Love and Luck

The Spanish in Me

Lately I have been taking a lot of inspiration from everything around me. The previous look was inspired by the *fresh green nature*. This time though, it’s a tad bit different.
Spain is known for its history, monuments, culture, tourism, tomatina festival, bull fights, food, football and Senorita! I have always admired Spain.
Since I haven't yet got a chance to visit the magical country physically, I decided to live a tiny bit of it in my own country itself. So, what did I do?

See the pictures and guess for yourself!

inspires my bright green eye make-up with white lined lower lid (Lakme)

 Tomato based cold soup 
Served with a "puchka" on top, the presentation inspired my golden lined lips filled with mandarin red.

Traditional Spanish Rice dish cooked with Seafood.
The fresh mix of colours on the plate inspired the floral printed dress I'm wearing.

Fillet of Beef
the texture, the brown sauce and the green tender bamboo shoots are the perfect inspiration for meaty looking legs!

The good people at Fashion Most Wanted invited me to this heavenly place for a Spanish food tasting session.

All drooling now, aren’t you? So, the next time u want to give your taste buds a surprise treat, head to POCO LOCO, Mumbai for some authentic Spanish Cuisine! The restaurant being small and cozy, it does give you a warm and homely feeling with everything happening right in front of your eyes. If needed, the chef himself comes down to your table to help you decide what to order.
My favourite - The gazpacho soup and paella. And yes! The sangrias. They are simply delicious!

Kindly Corporate!

I look at and think of a corporate as "stressed, depressed, but always well-dressed"! 
What I tried today is a corporate look. Now that its a Monday, and that I'm interning, what else could fit the mood more?

The fact that in monsoon, the roads, trees and the nature looks its freshest best was an inspiration in itself for me to do this "fresh green" post. Now scroll down and look at the pictures before I bore you with my explanation of why, how, where I wore this! You really don't want me to get started, do you? ;)

The high-low fashion is, needless to say, the talk of street-style world. And, the breezy top keeps me fresh in this humid Mumbai monsoon.

These pretty frilly hem keeps the feminine touch intact, without making me look like one deadline-bound corporate woman.

Its the bag and shoes which adds a pop of color to my otherwise dull colored outfit.

Top - Thrifted
Skirt - tailormade
Shoes - Hill Road
Bag - Esbeda
Eyes - Maybelline (Jade)

How do you define a corporate?
