Animal Instincts

Good morning my cinnamon buns! The day 4 outfit is here. I haven’t had enough of the winter clothing ever  since I witnessed snow in Kashmir! Cutting back to Mumbai I hardly get to wear jumper, but its that time again the morning and evening can get really chilly. So yes a leather coat over the shoulder might just survive!

Maxi dresses are the most comfortable dresses one can wear throughout holiday season, I mean c'mon who doesn't need to hide that little tummy after good butter chicken: P
I toughened up this laidback Maxi with embellishments on the bust area with brown Moto leather jacket and black boots. Yes I firmly break fashion rules ,so here we've mixed Brown+Black +Animal prints. Animal Prints can get a bit overwhelming so be careful while choosing your prints depending on  your body type, like a red lipstick there's an animal print for everyone. I really liked this dress because the maxi is in a very muted greyhound hue with a medium sized prints.

The plunging neckline offers you to go crazy with layered pieces for your neck or you could wear statement earring like I chose to with collars popped inwards and a long layered army inspired-chain to bring attention to detail. You can  take this look from Day to Night and replace the boots with sky high stilettos.
As for the makeup the eyes I sported a pretty subdues look with grey and brown and wine lipstick JHave you noticed any change? What do you think guys?

Maxi Dress: FOREVER NEW Leather Jacket & Boots: Dad got it from Amsterdam (it's called Mademoiselle) ,Army inspired chain:Thrifted, Earrings: YOSHINE,Sunglasses & ring: BLUR and On my  nails :Maybelline's Colorshow in Black current.
Are you eared up for the upcoming giveaway?
Stay Chic!

Of aviators , sarees & Autos

Good evening my blueberries,
Yes I've accomplished shooting on the second day as well,expect late night post everyday!
So its Day 2 today and how could ignore our desi avtars which we all like to don once in a blue moon. So all my ladies don't be afraid to experiment with Indian wear this season(or ever)!
Some quick tips for your favourite fusion that will make you stand out:
·       Grab that old saree that has seen the sunlight for days now ,turn to your darzi and have a lovely jacket .
·       Look out for antique jewellery pieces and pair them with your chic dresses & don’t worry incase one f the earring are missing wear them as brooch instead and build your outfit around it!
·       Drape your saree differently,wear them over your favourite cigarette pants or wear a jacket over it.this is what I've done for today's  outfit.
Disclaimer: Sorry if you get a l'il dhink chak vibe here, we tried a little something new!
Background score please :
We tried a front drape with a long halter top over pants(for a better mobility, you know you are going to dance and you want to be hands free).
I traded my traditional pair of earring for a modern pattern. An alternate choice is ear cuffs that ‘ll instantly glam  up the attire. I draped the pallu in the front by making a fn mess and putting it together with a brooch. There’s nothing in India as too much colour but I want to make everything put together with my nude heels.
We think anybody can rock this look play up with different drapes and don’t neglect Indian wear we’ve endless possibilities.
The next post is decided and expect the unexpected!
Heartfelt thanks to Imran bhai for letting us use  the Auto!

The Invisible Crown

The festive season is here and so is our biggest woe of all times.
What do we wear?
All that holiday snacking us has taken its toll !
Yes it shows through my favourite pieces. Well there nothing to fret while we adopt the laws of attraction in our pieces. We shall be showcasing 6 different styles each day this entire week or mostly every alternate day (Hopefully I'll keep up with the schedule). And you shall have enough outfit idea and pieces to pick up, this is not limited to my curvy ladies my leggy lasses can pick up their share of bits and pieces too. Dressing up is all about making it your OWN.
Enough of the gyaan,kaam ki baat yeh hain ki "The outfit ideas shall also help you the X'mas Giveaway that we have planned .We'll be asking you question from our post and you know where you can find the answers. So get on it connect with us on Facebook ,Twitter , and Pintrest.

Today we have paired an all time favourite Holiday piece our maxi dress and paired it up sans jewellery and elaborate hair. We chose this maxi dress because of it simple texture, colour that works for both day and night  (fyi that takes away from my size), the ruched bandeau emphasizes the attention to the bosom. Its a great cover-up as empire line hides all that tummy and thigh. Opt for a maxi this season if your problem areas are tummy and thighs and if you've great arms and a neckline. I chose a head accessory instead of any jewellery but you can chose anything from delicate earring to just a big statement necklace.
The makeup is a bronze smokey eye paired up with  fuschia pink lipgloss.
p.s.I'm not really a lipgloss person but for holidays I make an exception :P Notice how this smokey eye is without any hard liner well that gives us a chance to flaunt our lashes. Also it make your eyes look bigger.
We have an ample of head accessories to choose from but I was indecisive between two piece one being the chunky hair band I made ,you can make your own  or pair it with a slimmer headband with a bow that gives it a more of a romantic finish.

Can’t wait to post the next look already.Do let us know if you want the tutorial on makeup.
We really  hope you all keep up with us ,we need your love
(C’mon Look at all these balloons, basically were out of breath ) .Stay Chic!
