How to effortlessly style a white dress

IMG_5168IMG_5194IMG_5178Dress: XXLLENT, Earrings&Ring: Avrom Jewels

White is such a fresh colour, isn’t it? And while it has its own beauty, it is difficult to amp up a dress that is plain white. So, how do you do it? Let me take you through how I styled this look.

I picked this white dress from here. I like this brand as it is one of the few plus size only brands that keep design aesthetics in mind. I loved the lace-up neckline detailing. To accentuate my body type, I added a slim belt which was neutral in colour but had gold detailing. This made the dress look flowy and added structure to my look. I chose to pair the outfit with pumps the same colour as the belt as I wanted to add a pop of colour while accessorising it. I used the very ‘in’ tassel earrings. What I like the most about these earrings is that pop of bright pink with a marble finish. They were a love at first sight. I chose a white ring with similar detailing as the earrings. You can check out their collection here. I left my hair loose, applied a deep berry shade on my lips and was set for a day full of compliments.

Easy-peasy. You can try it too!

Until next time, xoxo.

Quirk and Streetstyle

Let me be honest with y’all. Am I a fan of quirk? No! But this t-shirt? Hell yeah!

I am big on being comfortable irrespective of the occasion. Because comfort exudes confidence. This particular t-shirt is another level of comfort. The fabric is soft and feels extremely light. The overall vibe is very comfy. I fell in love with this print and the navy blue colour instantly. You can find more quirky products like this t-shirt at PrintOctopus. The one I’m wearing is Hanjee Hello T-shirt. Go check it out!

But, since overtly casual is not my style, I decided to amp it up (obviously).

I have a thing for tying knots at my natural waist. And I obviously did not waste the opportunity. Because I wanted to amp it up, I decided to pair it with these front high-slit pants and fishnet stockings under. To make the vibe a little more street style, I made sure the stockings were visible at my midriff under my knotted t-shirt. And y’all know how I love my boots! I had to pair them up with this look. Since I wanted to still keep the look a little casual, the statement ring was my only accessory. You can also wear long hoop earrings along if you want.

I hope you guys like how I styled this look.

Black Lace ft. XXLLENT

It always angered me when I saw plus size women wear only kurtas or salwars because they thought they couldn’t wear something form-fitting. Now, I don’t have anything against any type of dressing-especially Indian (gotta love those ethnic looks). But, I do have a lot against not being able to do what you want to because of a mental trap. Honestly, well fitted clothes are not only extremely presentable and good looking, but also add a lot of confidence to the way you carry yourself.

For very long, I blamed this attitude on brands not delivering to sizes above certain measurements. Hence, I was very happy to discover XXLLENT that not only caters specifically to plus sizes, but also has designs that flatter the curves. I was super-excited when I received this dress from them. It is so modest, yet has the right amount of sexiness to it. You can shop this dress from here and check their website out here.

Hope you enjoyed this post. Until next time. Much love. xoxo

How To Style Flowy Natural-Waist High Skirt

IMG_4937IMG_4967 copyIMG_4897IMG_4903IMG_4916IMG_4917IMG_4932IMG_4979Skirt: Found in my old bags, Bodysuit: Koovs, Earrings: Zara, Ring: Shazé, Heels: Lavie

Monsoons are here! And they always get me in a good mood. I am smiling bigger, laughing louder, sounding chirpier and waking up happier. A lot of people feel the monsoons are gloomy, but to me, they’ve always been beautiful. I’m a water person. My entire travel bucket list consists of places around water bodies. I guess there’s something about the flow, the peace, the infinity.

And happy moods naturally call for brighter colours. A lot of you may not know, but my father used to own an export house. And as a child, I always kept samples I loved aside. This skirt is one of those samples. Obviously, it wasn’t my size as a kid, but now, it fits just right. Even as a child, I knew what I liked.

Also, I’ve always had a thing for any bottoms that are natural-waist high. The colour, the little sparkles on it, the strings handing at the sides, the flow.. The overall magical feel of this skirt had always pulled me in. And I am so happy to share this look with you guys! My ideal choice would have been to pair something that was an off shoulder and white in colour. But, I wanted to step a little out of my comfort zone. So, I decided to pair the skirt with this gun-metal coloured shiny bodysuit. I chose my silver ankle strap heels. And kept the accessories to a bare minimum. I chose my silver studded snake earrings and my statement silver ring to go with the look.

Rise

I always identified with the Phoenix being my spirit animal. You know, the whole rising anew from its own ashes deal. And sometimes, there are just words that stick in your head. And Rise was one such word. I honestly believe what when you fall, you’ve got to stay there, heal and get the hell back up. You can crib and complain call you want, but eventually, you must get the hell back up with lessons learnt. That is truly rising to me.

For the past eight months or rather since I heard Rise by Katy Perry for the first time, it has been my go to mantra. And like everything I hear or watch that helps in raising the warrior within me, this stuck. It has inspired me and reminded me of who I needed to be, every single time.

When I woke up two days back, the first thing I saw was the word Rise on my wrist (the tattoo, I mean) and I knew then and there that I’d have to share the emphasis of this word to me with you guys.

This video is of me singing my favourite bit from the song.

Love always. xoxo

Midriff-Reveal Fixation

IMG_1058IMG_1056IMG_1055IMG_1054IMG_1059Crop top, Skirt, Shrug and Earrings: Forever21, Watch:GUESS, Ring: Accessorize, Heels: Catwalk

Before I began blogging, I thought I had begun to accept and love myself for being me. But in the past 8 months, with the love and appreciation I have received from you all, I have come to love myself even more. Your love has revealed my hidden strengths. I have realised how fearless I am. For this and much more, I will be eternally grateful to you all. Thank you. You are amazing! Here’s sending all my love and positive vibes to y’all (:

Ever since my Sheer Lace&Right Attitude post, I have developed a midriff-reveal fixation. Since I am an hourglass, I like outfits that accentuate my comparatively narrow natural waist. This lovely crop top had such amazing lace detailing on the neckline, I had to pick it up. I chose to pair it with a knee length black skirt. The white delicate embroidery on the mustard shrug enhances the pair. I decided to wear heels with accents similar to the shrug and the top because I chose the cascading blue earrings.

Love always!

Brunch Date Outfit

IMG_1049IMG_1045IMG_1044IMG_1041IMG_4789IMG_4802IMG_4809Top&Skirt, Choker set&Finger rings: Forever21, Cuff: Avon, Shoes:Pavers England

May is here! And so is the amplified heat. Is it only me or is the weather a lot warmer this year?! Somehow, I’m not complaining. I love the flowy summer silhouettes that otherwise stick to the skin during the monsoons and during the winters, they just don’t hold enough appeal. There’s just something about a summer vibe that calls for delicate fabrics and happy designs. It also calls for brunch dates!

I chose to pair this cold shoulder satin ruffle sleeve top with a knit olive green skirt. Since the top was flowy, the perfect way to balance it on my body-shape would be to pair it with something form-fitting. Another great option to pair the top with would be ankle length deep blue skinny jeans. I wanted to keep the feeling a little airy, so I decided to wear my 3 piece chocker set, a cuff and a couple of delicate finger rings.
