Mama Mia!

Hello Beautiful

Yesterday (and the week before) was such a blissful occasion. In India, we celebrated Diwali or Deepawali as a gesture of triumph of good over evil. Some celebrate the occasion by bursting cracker (majority which is reducing) while others like me, decorate their homes, make rangoli, dress up, put heena or mehendi. It's my FAVORITE FESTIVAL of the year. I don't know; there is this sweet smell in the air that makes me smile endlessly.

This is what I wore for the occasion and you can also see how my mom decorated the home.




With all this festivity around that won't stop until New Year; I decided to check out FashionMia

I like how there are multiple colors in same designs and that their outerwear section is flooded with coats which is exactly what we need since it's going to get chilly soon.
They also have an app ready for those who like to shop on-the-go.
Their Halloween sale Ends on 1st Nov which has upto 50% off on great items.
For greater ease of customers, they have 3 sections marked red- New In, Top Sellers & Flash Sale. I think this is a prerequisite for any fashion website depending upon customers' needs.

And now, it's time for ratings.

Halloween Favorites

Spooky readers *D

I've loved this festival although I don't know the reasoning behind the celebration. These American sitcoms have spoiled me so much that I just want to celebrate one festival each month (at least). So when Dresslily started their Halloween Sale; I had to see what they had in store.

I can definitely relate Halloween with pumpkin, candies, bats, Gothic looks and a lot of makeup to achieve the desired look! Amidst the craziness of masks, costumes and Men's shirts (as well), I tried this blossom dress. The length of this dress & the print is the best part about it. When worn with some nice gloves and pearls, it would definitely be the right outfit for High Tea events. What more, there are some amazing deals and coupons available to shop from the already discounted items for Halloween. Now that's making full use of online shopping.

BlackAngular

Hello Peeps

I'm so excited to be going to my Alumni Meet. This would be the first ever alumni meet during the course of my education. I missed a few while I was studying elsewhere but this time it ain't gonna happen. I'm considering this my first and last alumni as most people appear immediately after their education. Few years down the line who knows where we will end up :)


So I know I wore this outfit here but this time it's about these cute white glasses. I wanted one pair of black frame white glasses ever since I saw Deepika in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. For those who are translating the previous five words- it's a popular movie staring Deepika and Ranbir.
So, I wanted these and you know my love for cat-eyed glasses and I obviously had to combine the both and tada!!!!
My Friends say it makes me look different- good different so I'm good with the praises and something of my choice. Now, how often does that happen?

Zaful has been kind to let me pick so many things. You can look at another post of them here where I'm doing an experiment of wearing baggy denims (floral) and here something colorful and pretty.

Color Zombie

Hello Beautiful :)

There are several meanings to this word and yet just one message is received: Your soul attracts me. Before I go overtly romantic, let's get lost in the colors that you're gonna see in this post. You all know my love for mint but a very few know how much I detest Gold/golden. It doesn't look good on me (or so I feel); but the moment I saw this bracelet on Zaful, I HAD to HAVE it (is this correct English?. Nevermind; the bracelet looks so good on my hand that even if it's the only accessory I'm wearing, it completes me!

 



Next, these shades. So my old blog readers know my love for cat-eyed glasses back from my giveaway triumph. I'm not a very 'accessory' person so more often than not, you won't find any accessory on me. I know it might be a taboo in the blogging world and many you might find it weird but I like to keep it simple (boring, eh?) and only let my clothes & shoes define me. Sometimes when I'm in a really good mood then a charm necklace/earrings/bracelet comes along. 

So when I found these cat-eyed glasses in leopard print, I knew I would wear them <not-very-often> but cherish them forever.




 

A special mention the the material of these glasses- The glass & frame quality is so good that my mom, who is usually skeptical about shopping from abroad, praised the brand and even called dibs on this one.

Gold in the Dark Night

Hello people

Here's another outfit for you guys :)
 
Of late, I've been having this urge to dress up fancy for every occasion. So when my friends asked for a weekend day out, I decided to take out this newly arrived Dressfo jumpsuit and threw this golden bow metallic belt that arrived on my Birthday (When I had left for the party!).

 

When I saw it on their website, I knew I wanted to have it right away. Calf length (was supposed to be) bottoms was on my list for so long. The last pair of denims I wore here, were also supposed to be calf length but thanks to the teeny me, that couldn't happen :) This time I decided to pair the jumpsuit with wedges and that gave me a lean look. 

 

As you can see, it came with the same material's black belt but it was looking a little washed out so paired with my own belt instead. Seeing my last post, guess all I've been experimenting with is, are belts!!!

I know I do not always (read rarely) wear different hairstyles but I really really want to try different ones without the use of gels, sprays or chemicals so the only options I have are- ponytails, fish-tail braid and the one I'm wearing. I could do many more but the texture of my hair is such that the visibility is of a few mm! But, I still love them!

Enjoy the rest of the pictures!

Pants on Fire!

Hi Folks

There comes a time in every blogger's life when they want to experiment all the way. For me, these baggy pants are 'it'. I had a hard time pairing these since I don't have those perfect abs else crop tops would have been the obvious choice. Still I tried my best and came up with this outfit. Even if you have fuller bottom or waist, wear what makes you happy. It's my goal to achieve a toned body and that's my choice which gives me immense satisfaction (exercising).


So here you have, the best version of baggy pants on my body (as of now) 

 
I wasn't very comfortable with the drawstring so used a different belt :)
