Vintage & Pastels

Audrey Hepburn's classic look in Breakfast at Tiffany's, Marilyn Monroe's famous halter neck white flared dress and red lipstick, Mary Crawley's gowns in Downton Abbey. Who doesn't remember and love these looks?

Bell bottoms, flared pants, platforms are all coming back in trend. Mind you these are the styles our mums wore during their college days .Those cute frocks,polkas & Mary Janes, everyone loves a little bit of vintage. Isn't it?

So here I am sharing how I tried to incorporate vintage & pastels for the fading spring. 


I paired a pastel green A-line skirt with a white top. I chose a white top with frills on the neckline to add that vintage look. As plain white top would have made the look contemporary. 


I accessorized my look with pearl eartops and a clutch with a very short sling to maintain the vintage ensemble.

I bought this skirt from a thrift store at Lajpat Nagar,New Delhi. Guess the price? :)
I hope you liked the look. :)

A Sunday affair


“The joy of dressing is an art.” — John Galliano

I hope all of you are having a gala springtime with so much of colour and freshness around.Are those floral dresses out of your closet yet? I am sure they are. For me, a dress is a must in a wardrobe.There is a certain type of dress for every occasion be it an interview,a dinner date, a glitzy party or just a stroll down the park.For every mood, there exists a dress. Empire waist, A-line,sheath, body-con, wrap, shift and so many more.
Here is how I wore my floral-shift dress on a sunny Sunday.



I teamed up my floral shift dress with my favorite pair of nude heels & a an envelope clutch.I love the color nude as it comes very handy when one's outfit is overly printed or loud and also it goes with everything under the sun.

And for the hairstyle I decided to make a sleek bun as open hair would have looked too top heavy with the prints.
I accessorized my outfit with a pair of pearl ear tops.


I bought this dress from Sarojini Nagar market,New Delhi for 100 INR & got it altered into a shift dress as it was plus sized.I loved the dress too much to have let it go.
I hope you liked the look. :)

Hello March :)



"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade." 
-Charles Dickens
Hello,

I am sure all of you are welcoming the season of bloom with wide smiles.Who doesn't love this season, isn't it? The warm sunshine,the clear blue sky,blooming flowers in all colours,birds chirping, lush lawns and not to forget the pastel and floral splash on our wardrobe and yes, the delicate ruffles.The start of Spring is also the time when one can team up clothes from different seasons like your favorite sweater & shorts, maxis & lightweight denim jackets. And I absolutely love this versatility because soon the scorching summers will be knocking at our doors.

Here's a peek to how I teamed up my kimono sleeved floral shrug to welcome the Queen of seasons.



I teamed up my kimono sleeved floral shrug with my all time favourite high waisted black jeans.Since school,high waists have been my favorite as it accentuates one's curves and adds a little length to one's legs.If teamed up properly no jeans can be as flattering as high waists. I have accessorized it with my favorite cat eye sunnies to make the outfit a bit edgy.

Like I mentioned before spring is also a season of mix and match.
I teamed up my attire with black ankle boots and accessorized it with a black bagpack.
I chose the colour black to balance the burst of floral prints in my outfit and also I love the colour.







 
 I bought this shrug from Sarojini  Nagar market,New Delhi for 300 INR.
I hope you liked the look. :)
