August babe

Bell bottoms, high rise bottoms, vintage corsets and thigh highs made quite a rage in the 90s and are all set to rock your wardrobe once again.

Here we bring you top 7 hot and exclusive ideas for outfits containing corsets and thigh-high and stockings.
Be it a house party, a pool party, a casual get together or a formal office party, corsets and thigh highs can give you the look you have been aspiring for since long. Moreover, it is important to break the monotony after a certain period. These outfit ideas will not only give you a different and retro look but also make you the star of the event by the aura they create!

1. A Loose Bohemian Dress With Thigh High Stockings

A loose bohemian dress can be perfectly paired with thigh high stockings and a hat to get a totally different and admirable look. Since the 1960s, Boho fashion has earned itself an important place in the fashion industry. The carefree aura that it creates and the hip culture that it signifies has been attracting people for long. It is equally popular even today and has never disappointed anyone! The effortless look that it gives and the ease with which it can be carried are other factors behind its popularity. Thigh high stockings perfectly complement the free look of the dress and add sophistication to it. This can give you a complete Boho-Chic look for the chocolate and wine party you are planning to throw over the weekend.

2. Thigh High With A Romper

Rompers and jumpsuits are two popular all-weather options among women. Pairing thigh high stockings with a romper can make it a fantastic choice for the fall. Being effortless and versatile, rompers have been more popular among teenagers as compared to the working class. Wearing a body shaping corset under a romper can enhance the look even more. Moreover, you don’t need to wait for the weather to officially get warm before starting wearing a romper. Just pair it with matching thigh high stockings and some cool accessories and you are good to go!
Kitten heels or wedge sandals can go hand in hand with your romper.

Corsets offer the most variety when it comes to upper wear. They can literally be teamed with anything and can be worn over the dress, under the dress or even as a corset belt!

Junagarh Fort Bikaner: Myriad Colours - FICTITIOUS FASHION

Hey readers

To continue off the series from a few posts before, here is the last part of the series.

I brought three of the VERY Indian outfits you can see on one blog. First being, the Lucknow Chikankari suit behind the pastel pink backdrop and the second being, the three Bikaner wedding outfits for Mehendi, shaadi and reception.

Today you will see the most typical yet beautiful of all forts in Bikaner, the Junagarh Fort. You know how nature grows around something that is 'supposed to be' a hurdle (e.g. tree roots around a rock). The same way, but opposite, the modern city of Bikaner has grown around the Junagarh Fort a.k.a. 'Old Fort'.

As we proceed through these pictures, I will take you through the enchanting history behind each image. Stay with me on this one. It is not every day that a fashion blogger acts a guide to an Indian fort.

Bikaneri Haveli, Junagarh Fort, Bikaner

Welcome to the Junagarh Fort in Bikaner. This is the pride of Bikaner city. The perfect staircase, the dome-shaped door, the tiles and other architectural words, are definitely an architect maven. Just look at this monochromatic beauty. Guess, monochrome look in Fashion was inspired by this?


Some parts of the haveli were restricted for the public so only a few Mahals were open to tourists.

 

This was our entrance to one of the forts. These iron curtains, I wouldn't mind staying behind in.

Anup Mahal, Junagarh Fort, Bikaner

Welcome to Anup Mahal. The guide said that the tiles were Italian and we could see ornate mirrors on ceiling and latticework on doors and pillars like on the respective ends above. This was known for its grandest construction. Guess we had a great taste back then as well.

One thing you should know about me is that personally, I'm not a great devotee or hold pride

Celebrity Hairstyles: Inspiration

Hi people

For the past one year, maybe even over an year, I have been obsessed with a few celebrities.
Celebrity habits, shopping style, behind-the-scenes and their life in general!

Celebrities are the biggest influencers and whenever a celebrity does something new, fans go crazy and want to follow the same.

Following celebrity hairstyles is one of the most easiest of those changes! If your  celebrity has changed their hairstyle recently, you can most likely adapt that, than wearing an ornate dress at the Met ball! But, changing hairstyles that often requires a lot of investment in terms of:
- quality of hair
- maintenance
- stopping the hair from being washed out completely
- maintaining one's image (unless you are going Taylor Swift in showing that you have changed)

But, can you honestly change your hair as often as they do? We cannot! The expense to maintain our hair, will bear us down.
Enter wigs and extensions. Until a few years ago, wigs were meant for transgenders or sick people who have lost their hair. They were NOT for entertainment purposes. But, this didn't stop women from selling their hair for a few bucks. For some, it was how they sustained their livelihood.

Now, remy, non-remy and virgin hairs are sold along the lines of hair colours and other cosmetics. For you it could mean, a makeover while for someone else it is a compensation to their lack of hair-growth or other hair related problems.

Lace wigs have become so popular these days. I recently saw a video where a magazine editor went from salon to salon, to find the best lace wigs in the world.

There are a lot of variations that celebs do, that are easy to follow. Read along.

Kylie Jenner - The lady with the fastest career (and personal= new mom) growth, wasted no time in hitting the salon chair as soon as 2018 hit. Her hair experiments are crazy and she is known to carry blonde, black and whites - all effortlessly.

Curls would really suit you if you have a long, oval and thin face.

Shorter hair look great in curls and waves. Ashley Tisdale, Margot Robbie (above) and Leighton

7 Ways to Wear High Rise Bottoms

Hey Folks

Happy June to you

Guest post by Jessica

Once in a while, everyone wishes to try something new. One thing that was hugely popular in the past and is all set to make a major comeback in the fashion world is the bell bottoms. Don’t be surprised if you spot your favourite actress in a high rise bottom in her next public appearance. With the wedding season approaching, bridal wedding high rise corsets are also expected to be the talk of the town.

If you are looking forward to refreshing your wardrobe with the onset of summer, then you have stumbled upon the right piece of information.

Here we bring you top 7 hot, fresh and exclusive ways of wearing high rise bottoms. You cannot just team them up with anything lying in your closet after all!

7 WAYS TO WEAR HIGH RISE BOTTOMS

1. Tucked-in top and high rise bottoms - The best partner of a high rise bottom is certainly a tucked-in top. The style statement they have made in the past has been absolutely irreplaceable till date and the look has made quite a rage among the celebrities as well. The tucked-in top provides you with an excellent opportunity to show off the high waist.  Plain or checked square shirts completely tucked in with the jean buttoned over it can be the perfect office look you have been craving for. You can also opt for a customised t-shirt to add a personal touch to your outfit. 


2. What not to wear with high rise bottoms - There is absolutely no denying the fact that bell bottoms have a huge volume. Hence, avoid adding more volume to the scene. Wearing a high rise bottom with an oversized top, sweater or a blouse is a strict NO! Similarly, high rise bottoms don’t go very well with short jackets. Your top competing with your bottom for attention won’t present a very beautiful scene. The two clothing items should complement each other. Moreover, it would become too much for you to carry. Covered in so much of clothing on a sunny day would not be comfortable for you. However, if you are crazy for blouse, go for a sheer blouse instead.

"An interesting way to sport a crop top with a high rise bottom is to wear a long cardigan or a shrug on it. This look is perfect for petite girls as it gives an illusion of being tall."

3. Bring the crops - Body hugging crop tops go well with high rise bottoms. In fact, they are perfect for high waist corset jeans. A high neck crop top, a thin-striped blouse crop top or even a regular sleeveless crop top would give you an admirable look for a day out with your friends or a casual drinks get-together.

A Bikaner Wedding to remember: Three wedding outfits

Hey folks

I know there has been some delay between the previous Bikaner wedding post where I gave you the pastel feels with my Lucknow Chikankari suit.

I was feeling under the weather. May didn't start on the right note for me: been sick twice and it's not even mid-may. Anyway, let's not put it on the month. May-June would be the most important months of my life. You will know why in the subsequent few posts :)

Since the wedding went by in a jiffy, I didn't get enough time to go to a good location to take these pictures or enough of them in the outfit I got designed myself. I decided to combine the three posts into one. I will write about each one individually though. The third and the final article of the Bikaner trip would be about my first fort visit.

SANGEET

So, the Sangeet is a tradition where both the families come together and the bride gets Mehendi on her hands and feet. In Rajasthan or Marwari culture, the bride and the groom get Mehendi done separately. Yes, the groom has to get the Mehendi done too. Insane, isn't it?

Anyway, so Sangeet is the first function that I attended and it is quite a vibrant and informal event. I chose to wear a skirt and crop top with it. This pink skirt was already bought so all I had to choose was the crop top. Now, I didn't want to go all traditional and colour-block it or wear a silver or golden blouse.

I was at Lajpat Nagar's most famous shop for getting fabric/unstitched garments -
