Prints to Work.





Hi Everyone!

I know what you all must be thinking, yet another blogpost about prints. (ha ha... that's what I was thinking while writing this blogpost). This blog shoot was done about 6 months ago and finally decided to share it. If I had to define my signature style, then I would definitely be the "girl in polka dots". I always ensure my outfits are an extension of personality. I think it is important for everyone to define what his/her style stands for. For me, it is important that I don't get lost in the crowd. I never liked being one among the crowds wearing the cliched outfits (no offence to anyone, it is just my opinion). My style has always been into prints and experimenting styles which suit my body type.

I have been pushing my creativity to incorporate prints to my work wardrobe. As a career girl, it is important that I blend into the work culture without losing out on my sense of style. I also love the cliched suits and dress but it gets boring after a point in time. After trying out few options, I thought I should compile a list of do's and don'ts while wearing prints to office.

1. Firstly, get over the notion you cannot mix prints to work. It is a delicate dance to mix prints to office but done rightly it is definitely a head turner.
2. Mixing different prints with black and white is the easiest bet. Polka & stripes, polka & leopard and stripes % stripes are the few combinations I have tried until today.
3. You can try out similar prints in different color to give dimension to outfit.
4. Keep accessories to the minimum.
5. Avoiding adding pop of colors and the outfit might look like a costume.
6. Always finish the look with classic pump only.
7. Complete the look with a structured bag to add an elegant and corporate touch to outfit.

If you have any other suggestion that will add value, do drop me a note. I will incorporate into the blogpost.

Recently, I came across this application called "Ask Me" in my friend's android phone. I tried finding it for my iPhone, but alas it is just for android users. If you read about the app, the Ask me team calls is "bapp of all apps" and I totally agree with it! From finding local restaurants, business, best electronic deals, cars, sales, real estate, basically you name it, they have everything in this app to keep you updated on what's happening in your neighborhood. It not only shows online stores, but also local stores where you can purchase items. The best part of the app for me is "free ad" segment, where I can browse items put on sale by other people. In simple terms it is like Quikr, Foodpanda (Read here), Carwale, Myntra and Zomato rolled into one app. If you are internet junkie like me and fortunate enough to own an android phone, then download this app to make your life simpler.

Zoutoning



I have always emphasized the importance of two things - thrifting and couponing. I am constantly searching for coupons to get better deals on branded products. Recently, I came across another website called Zoutons




Firstly, I like how organised and simple the Zoutons website is. The layout is clean and it is easy to navigate through website to great deals every day. One of the best features is the latest coupons segment where you get the best of deals. The coupons is mostly restricted to online shopping for apparels and electronics. Zoutons is affiliated with most Indian apparel brands to provide best discounts.




One of my favorite section in the website is the popular stores section. Few of the Indian website which I like shopping extensively are Myntra, flipkart, foodpanda and ebay. You can see plethora of promo codes to get extra discounts. Check out Zoutons for Flipkart deals.

Road Trip with Tommy Hilfiger







Hey Everyone!
This week, I am collaborating with Tommy Hilfiger! Tommy Hilfiger recently launched new collection of summer watches. Needless to say, the collection embraces classic lifestyle, confidence and elegance. For a really long time I have been fascinated to add a white watch to my collection. I absolutely fell in love with the watch, the elegant stripes adds a sporty yet sophisticated look. I have fallen head over heels with the new summer collection. You will definitely see more statement pieces from the collection in upcoming blog posts.

I recently read an article about how women are going into depression thanks to Pinterest and photo log depicting perfect lifestyle, perfect body, perfect hair. Pinterest depression is basically feeling like you can never be good enough. That got me thinking that we spend most of our life running after perfection that we forget to embrace what we have. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy seeing the perfect photos, but honestly that is not my reality. Today's blogpost is all about embracing oneself! This is me without make up, messy hair right out after taking a bath without any hair products and hair setting, wearing simple jeans, shirt and sneakers. So all those women out there - be bold and embrace oneself!

How to choose Sunglasses for your face shape with Lenskart



Hi Everyone!
I have tied up with Lenskart to bring a unique initiative that will help you choose the right sunglasses for your face shape. Lenskart is one of India's leading online shopping portal for eye wear. Great place to pick up runaway items at budget friendly prices. For me Lenskart stands for quality coupled with great discounts. You can pick up sunglasses, eyeglasses and contact lens. Somehow, even after being an online shopping junkie, I have never shopped contact lens online. After seeing the various options that Lenskart offers, I am tempted to extend my online shopping portfolio. Nevertheless, find out how to choose sunglasses for your face shape.





How to find your face shape? It is extremely simple. Tie your hair to sleek pony tail. Outline the shape of your face on the mirror using a bar of soap. Now compare your face shape will standard face shape available.

Face shape and styles.

1. Heart Face
Characteristics - wide forehead, narrow jaw line, high cheek bones and narrow chin.
Frame types - Opt for frames wider at top.
Sunglasses Types - Wayferers and Cateyes.

My favorite picks from Lenskart that suit heart face shape.





2. Oval Face
Characteristics - Balanced proportions, narrow forehead, narrow jaw line and narrower chin.
Frame types - All frame types suit oval shape.
Sunglasses Types - Wayferers, Cateyes, Avaitors, Oversized

My favorite picks from Lenskart that suit oval face shape.




3. Round Face
Characteristics - narrow forehead, narrow jaw line and wide cheek bones.
Frame types - Opt for angular or rectangular frames.
Sunglasses Types - Wayferers, Cateyes and Squares.

My favorite picks from Lenskart that suit round face shape.

4. Sqaure Face
Characteristics - defined jaw line, square chin and board forehead.
Frame types - Opt for rimless frames.
Sunglasses Types - Round and Avaitors.

My favorite picks from Lenskart that suit square face shape.



Still in dilemma? Lenskart offers two unique services which will make it easier for you to choose frames and sunglasses. One of my favorite services is "Try at home".



All you have to do is click on "Try at home" option. Select five frames which you want to try. Pay a minimum verification charge. (I think about Rs.10 approx). Lenskart customer service will connect with you to decide a convenient date and time for the trail. A delivery boy will be at your doorstep with the frames. Choose the frame you like the most and then place a final order.



If you prefer something simpler, then check out the virtual eye wear studio. Either upload a photo or use your webcam and try out virtual frames that suit your face shape.

Hope this blogpost was helpful. If you have more queries, leave a comment and we will answer all your queries.

Loads of Love,
