How to dress up for Traditional Occasions

Hi guys, we are back again, hope you guys are doing great!!!. It’s always fun to share my thoughts with you :). So, last weekend I had to attend a traditional Event which was hosted by my cousins, it was a get together party. So, they had a dress code which was traditional attire. I dint want to dress up in pure traditional outfit like saree, but not even in regular tunics and leggings. I wanted my look to be ethnic and traditional, so I choose cotton umbrella Pattern dress, with chiffon dupatta and matching legging.

Thanks to my mom, she was the one who designed this outfit for me. Umbrella Pattern is similar to Anarkali pattern, but the difference is the way the flares are stitched, if you have a stout personality then umbrella outfit would make you look sleek where as Anarkali makes you look more stout, that’s why I love umbrella Pattern. Moreover, cottons are comfortable choice for summers

Now coming back to my outfit, it is a unique color combination navy blue and brick red, with gorgeous Kalamkari print which is type of hand painted or block printed cotton textile, Kalamkari print is perfect on cotton Fabric, they add more color and texture to it, and more over it is one of the ancient textile, so my mom purchased the cloth from a wholesale store and the stitched it. So, for dupatta, as the whole dress was printed, she suggested plain dupatta with border would be a perfect match, so she dyed the chiffon dupatta with blue and border of brick red and thin golden threads over the border, they all blended together.

For my foot wear I wanted flats specifically, so I choose to go with glitter shoes from Nine west, they are amazing I love the shade and were comfortable to, you can even go for Pumps and Juttis as well, (Jutties are nothing but Indian flat shoes) and Jewelry, you don’t need to much of it, just big Jhumkas or chandbalis (big earrings). As mine was full hands I dint needed any watch /bangles/bracelet, but if you still want to you can choose any one of them and lastly hand bag I was bit lazy so for this event, I dint had it with me, but I would say go for a golden or cream color clutch. You would look Pretty πŸ™‚

I hope you guys love it share your thoughts, let me know if you want me to share my jewelry pics, I would love to do that.

 

Love,

Free Style Yellow Lace Dress

Hello everyone, hope you guys are having good summer time. I love summers; my favorite time of a bright summer day is early morning tea/coffee time and late evenings in the back yard with loved ones. This makes me want to go back to my childhood days, where summer was vacation time, no school just fun, crazy cousin & #39: s outing, Icee/Slurpee afternoons, board game evenings and late night card games, hmmm… I wish I could just stay in that time and never grow up. So, with this summer inspiration, I wanted my outfit to be fun something which would reflect summer colors, so here I present my Free Style Yellow Lace dress. Yellow – color of happiness, warmth and perfect summer color.

I purchased this dress from Loft Store. I wanted to go with yellow black combination, as Yellow and black is a classic combination. I can even suggest one more color choice, pair it up with blue. Lace dress is perfect for any occasion you can choose it for a grand event and even for a casual meeting, so depending upon occasion you can vary your dressing style by adding accessories and levitating makeup and hair look. I dressed up for casual occasion.

As it was a casual look; for my hair, I did light curls and had simple accessories like star earrings from Express, these are perfect for any look-formal to casual. As summer time is perfect for Lace up Zig Zag Sandals, I thought this would be good choice and it would add more elegant and classy look to the outfit, I even purchased them from Express they are very comfy and it was on sale!!!!! πŸ™‚ and finally, never miss a matching hand bag, I paired up myself with a black Kate spade Street Stacy bag.

I hope you guys love this outfit. Please share your thoughts if you want me post pictures of the same outfit for a party look, let me know and please do let me know if you want me try something of your choice. I would love to do that.

Casual Summer Outfit

Welcome everyone Meena and Myself are excited to share my first summer outfit. The main reason to start my first post with this outfit as I always love to dress up in casual clothes, but at the same time I even wanted to look trendy and different.As in summer, we may have many casual social gatherings with friends and family and we often get stressed out what we need to wear which is comfortable , classy and even fashionable. With this outfit it doesn’t take much time to get ready. So below is the first look of my outfit.

I recently purchased this top from Banana Republic and from then I dint get a chance to flaunt myself in this. I thought this would be perfect chance to try this on. What made me purchase this top was I loved the way shoulder pattern was designed it had cute bow knot which I felt was unique. Normally other stores have off shoulder pattern and crop shoulder and more over the fabric is cotton which is perfect for summers.

I matched my top with black skinny jeans as blue and black are perfect!!  and more over this jeans from American Eagle Outfitters is comfortable . This combination is perfect for morning time as well as evening time. I wanted simple accessories for my outfit as I wanted my outfit to emphasize as the colors were good enough to reflect my personality. I purchased these half moon earrings from express as they are good match with any light color outfits and I had this white lace choker from Forever21, which would add little element to my outfit and finally perfect handbag is a must so I had this katespade white Envelope clutch bag which made me look perfect

And finally I dint want my outlook to be overwhelming with matching accessories . I wanted to look little bit stand out , so I went for nude shade sandals which made total sense to my outfit and other thing was I had a simple everyday make up look for my hair I just straightened it.

So finally here is my first outfit hope you guys love it.

Love
