The Year of the Glow – Highlighting, Strobing and Healthy Skin

highlighting and strobing

Undoubtedly, 2016 has been the year of the glow. While the past few years saw a surplus of looks with matte skin and heavily chiselled features, 2016 has been all about healthy looking skin that (seemingly) glows from within. Of course, either you glow from within, or there’s always makeup!  Continue reading “The Year of the Glow – Highlighting, Strobing and Healthy Skin”

Retro Blues – The Off Shoulder Maxi Dress

You know, I am one of those people who is really glad to live in a city like Mumbai, where the weather is tropical pretty much all year round. I have no problems whatsoever dealing with hot weather, in fact I quite love it. That is partly because I can wear summery dresses any time I want. You can probably tell by now that I am currently obsessing over off-shoulder silhouettes. Here are a few pictures in a blue bardot/off-shoulder maxi dress, which my sweet brother clicked during Rakhi. This dress is probably sold out now but here are a few similar ones. Happy shopping!

I decided to go with an elegant, retro inspired look with the braid and the oversized sunglasses, to let the dress have it’s own moment.

5 Ways to Spruce Up Any Outfit Instantly

5 Ways to Spruce Up Any Outfit Instantly

The difference between a good outfit and a great outfit could be just a matter of addition of 1-2 elements. You can take the most classic and basic of ensembles and shape it according to your style and personality. I often get asked how I look put together so often and to be honest, it is just a matter of taking a few seconds and adding one or more of these elements. Here are 5 ways to instantly spruce up any outfit!

Scarves:

Adding a bright colored or printed scarf to your ensemble takes it to the next level. Psst, French women do this all the time! Not only does a scarf look chic, it also keeps you warm and cosy. Win win!

Jewelry:

A statement necklace screams that you put way more effort into your outfit than you actually did! Easiest way to look put together.

Bright lips:

A bright lipstick in red, orange, pink hues will not only take your outfit to the next level, you can just wear the lipstick and skip all other makeup in case you are in a hurry.

Sunglasses add that oomph factor to an outfit. Something you can take advantage of while you are out and about in the sun.

red and gold Christmas dress

Red and Gold

Power. Desire. Strength. Passion. Love.

One color, many expressions. The power of a red lipstick, the amorous symbol of a red heart, the sanguine shades of blood. And also the color of celebration. The color of Christmas. The color of the promise of a new beginning. A bright and shiny new year.

This Christmas I decided to stop traffic in this red and gold number. I bought this dress for my birthday party last year and hadn’t worn it ever since. What better time to make a statement in gold and red than the holidays, am I right?

Styled it with simple gold accessories. Shot on the streets of Versova on Christmas early morning with my lovely Amrita.

Enjoy the pictures! Hope you had a beautiful Christmas. And oh yes, have a Happy New Year! 🙂
