Let’s Dazzle for Concert !!!! 🧚‍♀️

Hiiii everyone, I know summer is almost here, can’t wait for it. Long days and short nights 🌞 sooo amazing and vacations add more memories for the summer. Let’s get ready for summer with awesome fun and valuable memories.

Before summer, let’s talk about spring to , this time spring in Michigan was crazy. We had to dress up warm until this week. Spring is all about bird’s chipping , little warmth and season of Floral’s fashion🌸. My next post will be all about Spring outfits.This time I’m super excited to share my concert outfit with you.

Oh my, my God….I still get Jealous….You got me in chain’s you get me in chains for your love, but I wouldn’t change this love, I think you guys might have guessed whose concert I went to. Yess it’s Nick Jonas 😍and this was my first concert . I always use to listen to his songs but since past year I am crazy about him so when I got to know about this concert I was like I have to go for it.

So now coming to my outfit it was a last minute haul . Concert was on Saturday and I went to shopping on Friday. I was sure that I want something glittery but I was confused if I should go with a blouse ,skirt or Dress. First store I went to was Forever21. I was sure that I would find something , and in Sale section I picked up a rose gold blouse it had a satin bow at the back but it was too big for me , I really loved it , it was so cute and I wish it was in my size and I even picked 2 other ins, one was a black in color and it was a dress and other one was silver to they were little tight and they were not for my body type. Later I went to other stores like Lord & Taylor but I dint like any so next day morning on the day of concert I went to Nordstorm Rack, it was my first time to that store and I did find some good choice as well. I picked 3 of them one was a golden color blazer , the other one was silver spaghetti dress, and the last one even a multicolor glitter dress, out of three— golden blazer was good for me 🤩, and it was on sale so I picked that one.

As you see my outfit I paired it with black jeans and I wanted my blazer to be a highlight so I choose baby pink cami you can go with other light shades like grey , cream or white would also blend well , and to go with the flow I have chosen gold pumps so that I would dazzle for all nick Jonas songs. For handbag I went with black as my pumps and blazer were gold and for hair and other accessories I dint wanted to look to glittery so I just straighten my hair had regular make up. 

I hope you guys liked this outfit and got some ideas as well for your next fun filled and joyous gatherings, would love to hear your thoughts on this 💃🏽.

Love

Love For Block Prints

Hello Everyone!!!, First of all I wish all the wonderful women around the world HAPPY WOMEN’s DAY !!! 🧚‍♀️. I am so proud to be a women 👩‍💼.For me the word Women means a lot , it defines bravery, fearlessness, commitment, responsible and not giving up on her dreams . I got lot of motivation and zeal from most wonderful women on the Earth —my MOM, this post is dedicated to her and all women out there who inspire me to march towards my dreams.

This post is all about depicting Indian fabrics with contemporary style. My mom loves these fabrics her favorites are chiffon, georgette, silk and cotton even I developed interest on them because of her. My taste is more ethnic I prefer ikkat , pochampali and block prints more on Indian fabrics they give a modern look with traditional touch . The current on going trend in market is block prints and Ikkat. Many designers have fallen for them. The two outfits I have chosen are for family/ friends gatherings and religions gatherings as well.

I think I gave a lot of introduction, so now it’s time for my first outfit, I bought this from Fabindia- they have a huge collection of handmade ethnic fabrics. Its a flared long block print kurta. I liked the way they came with regular colors in a scenic way and red green and cream are most widely used colors so anyone would look good on this. What made me go for this one was the neck pattern it had boat neck pattern with frills near the shoulder . This was first time I had something like this. Coming to accessories, I’m not huge fan so I went with Jumkas you can also go with small studs or medium sized earring don’t go for too long ones, and simple chain on the neck like mine would be suitable , you can go with a single bangle or bracelet
And even watch would pair perfect as well. For footwear you can either go with my choice jutis that I wore as in the picture or any flats or ballet flats and even sandals would look good to.

The my next outfit is from Max, this is first time I have tried this store , I am impressed by their collection. This also has a flared style but this is like a maxi dress pattern kurta. It’s basically tie and die cotton kurta which gives you an impression of block pattern. I really love the colors, because of the colors I wanted this dress. Texture of this cloth is very smooth and soft . I accessorized this outfit similar lo the above one. Go for small and medium sized earrings , you can avoid wearing anything around neck as this outfit has closed neck style. I choose white heels ,as the kurta has bright colors so I didn’t want to over power my outfit, so white was the best option, even tan would also go.

For my Makeup I used Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, bare minerals Pro powder, Rubywoo by MAC and Loreal divine wine lipstick shades.

Lastly spring is almost here, can’t wait for it no more snow.I’m so happy about it . This time Michigan had lots of snow and now its time for more sun and long duration of day.I hope you guys have fun reading this post and find some interesting ideas for your outfits. Waiting for your thoughts on this post…..

Lets get ready for Christmas💃!!!!

Hello Guys!!!!, I hope everyone is pretty excited for Christmas😍, I know it’s in 2 days, I can’t believe that 2017 is ending and we are entering 2018, I wish everyone Happy Christmas and Happy new year in advance. May all your wishes and desire come true in 2018 and have a prosperous year. 

As we all might have Christmas parties to attend, you guys might be confused with what to dress, what accessories should I put and how about my make-up. 😅OMG!!!, I know so many questions right well well let’s breathe, don’t worry I have come up with some plan to rescue the day, so guys might already know what color I choose as you can see my featured image. 

img_7691

Yes, it’s a black dress from Loft, I recently purchased it and it was on sale, the cute thing🤗 about this dress is it gives a vintage look and more over it has cold shoulder with full hands, it even has a little bit flare too with this you can even flaunt as well. For foot wear, I wanted to match with my purse so I went with white heels with a little cute bow but you can even pair them up with black as well and even red would go good to. 

img_7696

For my make-up I applied Laura Mercier tinted Moisturizer and for Lipstick I wanted something that pop’s… as it’s for Christmas party so I went with Mac Ruby woo💄, finally I used smash box nude eye Palette. I am not a big jewelry fan, buy you can wear a simple gold or silver neck piece. 

I hope you guys love this outfit, please share your thoughts

Fall is the best- Its all about leaves, Halloween candy and beautiful Weather

Heyyy!!! Guys, how are you doing? I hope everyone is enjoying the fall mist.  I’m really sorry, I have been lot busy with work and personal stuff. I know excuse is the bad thing and I shouldn’t have given you any, so now onwards I will dedicate my time to you guys for sure. First thing recently I moved to new place in Michigan, it’s a Townhouse. The community is pretty good it feels so cozy and I’m still setting up my new house. I had lot fun since past 2 months, I have been to Mackinaw Island. It’s like 4 hours from Michigan, lovely place water was so fresh, we did a bicycle tour around the Island, I felt refreshing. Next day we rented a boat in Torch Lake spent most of our time in water. It was such a good feel; you guys need to try this.

Later, I visited Atlanta, it’s a fun town, I had great time over there. I spent most of my time in Midtown. I walked through the streets, it was amazing and the star studded sky along with neon lights of the clubs and bars added more beauty to it. I should thank my cousin Bittu with whom I got to experience this delightful feel. The other place that I would always love to visit is Austin, I had a quality time with my family. I went to visit my Grandpa and Grandma after 2 years. I really felt so good visiting them, they were so happy to see me. I had an amazing time, warmth and love. It’s always good to have some pampering from the loved ones.

During this fun visits I had some time to shop, I was more looking for Formal outfits. I wanted something like legging kind of pants for office, Banana Republic launched a new collection in Pants these are called DEVON, they are so good, the fit is perfect and comfortable to I personally recommend to try them. And I bought some new pair of shoes from DSW, they are amazing, comfortable to you guys need to check DSW collection. More outfit pictures to be posted next week. Hope you guys love my post.

Review on KL Nail polish and Mod Cloth Shoes

Hi, guys hope, you are doing awesome!!!!. As my title tells you I bought few online stuffs last week, I wanted to share with you guys, how cool was it. Normally, I buy Sally Hansen and Essie Nail Polish in particular, I love sally Hansen’s Argan Oil Formula, they are amazing, they make your nails look shinier and your hands look elegant too. I’m darker skin tone so I’m very choosy with the shades, currently I have sally Hansen’s peaches, red’s and nude shades to, I wanted some more summer colors, but couldn’t find the right shades for my skin tone, so meena suggested to try KL nail polish.img_6400

KL Nail polish is launched by a youtuber Kathleen Lights, I loved the way she designed her website and more over her collection is based on seasons like spring, summer etc. Normally in other websites they just present nail polish colors in bottles, but here she puts pictures on how they look on darker skin tones as well as fair skin tones, which makes more easy to choose and we can analyze, which color looks amazing on you especially for me I love light shades not all of them look good on me, but here I could find some cool light shades for me. The shipping service is good . I received my package in 3 business days. I ordered 4 shades St Clair which is lavender, Hug & Roll is light pink , Ice cream Pistachio is green and last one is Magic City. I love the brush it is not to thick or thin it has the right amount of width which makes easy to apply . Consistency and texture is medium thick which makes it to apply easily over the nails. So guys I really like these shades and texture so I would buy more and I recommend you guys to try them, you would absolutely love them.

So, coming to the vintage flat bit tied shoes that I purchased form Mod cloth are so lovely. I have been trying to buy them since long time. I love Mod cloth collection, and good thing was they were on sale. As I ordered them online , they arrived in 4 business days which is decent. Comfort wise they are very comfy you can walk for hours on these shoes, the detailing is good and complete. So whoever is looking for good options for vintage outfits and shoes I would recommend Mod cloth.

 

Hope you guys like my reviews, share your thoughts and reviews if you have already tried these stores 🙂

Love Shopping, Summer time, going to miss My Family

Hello Everyone, I hope you guys are having awesome summer time with your family. Sorry guys, I have been quite busy past week (work is sometimes crazy), but still I managed to have some fun because of my family and friends, thank you guys :), I’m going to miss my family in month of August, hope you guys have an awesome safe trip filled with great memories, I will be waiting for you eagerly as you guys will be back by September. So, my whole August month would be dedicated to you guys as I can go for more shopping and share more stories with you.

img_6342

I found out some online stores with good deals for clothes on Pinterest, I was interested in buying some outfits for my work, Pinterest suggested Rowme and Shein, So I decided to go with Rowme, I found more cute stuff in Rowme, so I ordered 5 tops from Rowme, so my shipment was divided in two and one arrived after 2 week and other none a week later, so shipping takes time as they were shipping from china. But I was disappointed a bit, I dint like the cloth texture and sizes may vary for each type, some were too loose and some were tight so out of 5 I only liked 2 of them and the return policy is so irritating, I had to create a ticket then they charge me for return to, it’s a waste of time, so I wouldn’t recommend Rowme.

img_6343

But I needed to change my work outfits, so I found some good choices at Express and Banana Republic, I am sharing the pictures. I am even paring my accessories too. I hope you guys love them, I think they might give you some ideas too. I was even browsing online for some cute flats for work and casual, I found this on Pinterest, its modcloth, they have very cute collection, but the only issue is price is bit high, so check this website and let me know if you guys like it. And apart from shopping I watched bunch of movies as well, which was bit relaxing, so guys hope you love this post. OH noo I forgot to tell you about my Garden, finally I have some veggies (Tomatoes and pepper) now in my backyard, I will talk about it more next week. Let me know if you want me to try some other stores as well. See you next week guys with some new stuff again. See Yaaa 🙂

Long Weekend Fun, Road Trip to PA and Shopping!!!

 

Hey guys, hope you had a great weekend and it was a long weekend so fun would be double. I was not sure this time what I would be sharing with you guys, but then I decided to share my road trip to my cousin’s place. So, we went to Harrisburg -PA, it was an 8-hour drive from Detroit. I was not sure how I would handle long drive, this was not my first time visit to Harrisburg, but I have little bit of travel anxiety which makes me nervous, so anyway I had good company, a cute family they are my mom’s cousins, they have two kids 10/11-year-old boys, whose sense of humor is amazing, they always make me laugh like crazy, so we listened to music and even I slept a lot. Finally, after 8 hour drive we reached to my other cousin’s place in Harris burg. Their family is another sweet treat to me. OMG I lover their daughter’s nidi and nitya they are cute little sweeet hearts 🙂

img_6043

We reached Harrisburg on Saturday Midnight. So next day we had yummy Indian breakfast: idly with sambhar and chutney, it was amazing. and then we decide to go to Askhardham Temple in New Jersey. It was a 2.5 hour’s drive from Harrisburg. The temple sculpture was amazing and it was abode of Lord Krishna. Then we were all hungry so we decided to eat in temple they had North Indian street food like Dhokla, Pav Bhaji, etc. Food was good but I felt prices weren’t reasonable. And by 7:30 we were back to Harrisburg. I love when it is night time there we chat until late night, play cards and I get to sleep with all kids, which is so fun we talk lot about princess and Marvel/DC super heroes and there is always fight between Nidhi and nitya who would be sleeping next to me.

And Sunday was Biryani Day, movies, music and lot’s more fun. And here comes my other favorite part of my trip, on Monday we went to shopping and I love their Tanger Outlets. They had amazing deals for July 4 th. So, I bought a Coach Bag and Wallet. Pumps from Nine west and off Shoulder Top from Banana Republic. I hope you guys love my new stuff. I want to know what you guys shopped for July 4 share your stuff.

And I was back again on Tuesday evening to Detroit. I loved this trip, it was bit relaxing. It was relaxing trip. I was in Pajamas watching lots of TV on the couch., which is the most amazing thing to do. I love it.

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.

img_5418

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 🙂

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,

Outfit Etiquette

Did you guys ever think how it would be if Fashion has rules and regulations, then we would be bound to those rules with limited fashion sense. Luckily we were never in that regime. Today’s fashion has opened a whole new dimension to the world, its colors, patterns and styles are unlimited and unique. Each of them give you an inspiration, to try something new. But do we need Etiquette? I say yes, because, it would help us to dress more appropriately for the occasion and we would be more specific while choosing our accessories.

IMG_5411

Let us consider a scenario where you are supposed to host a Fundraising Event. It could be promoting wildlife or it could be a charity event.  As a host, you have a big responsibility to attract the crowd. Everyone is looking over you, so you need to dress as per the crowd and the occasion. For Wildlife event the crowd would be kids, teens and adults. You need to carry a strong image in front this young crowd, so for that if you dress up formally, it wouldn’t capture your thoughts with your image. Same way with the accessories. Good choice would add more depth and feel to your look.

IMG_5405

I believe we need to invest our time and money in following accessories, first I would say Shoes. which are” girl’s first love” what say guys, you agree with me right? :). Great shoes would always add more color to your outfit and there is a saying ” one with a right footwear can rule the world”. Next would be a watch. It’s like an everyday jewelry accessory. It makes you look more elegant. Final one would be a perfect hand bag. As you know “Handbags speak louder than words”, with a matching handbag you would look more graceful. To complete your look, you need to style your hair and go for the makeup look accordingly

IMG_5407

So, depending upon the occasion you need to emphasize your accessories, outfit, hair and makeup. For me Etiquette means defining Fashion with these combinations, which would give us a unique style for an individual. As there is a saying ” Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”. I hope this would help you guys to build your own “Style Etiquette”. Please do post your style statements and outfit ideas and share your views on this topic.

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.

IMG_5282

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!!!!! 🙂 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.

Love
A&M
