All Over Lace.


Hello everyone.

Time for Wardrobe Wednesday. This week's inspiration is little black lace dress and how to nail a celebrity look for less.














I am wearing

Black Lace Dress - Lifestyle (From Splash Collections - got during sale for 1000 Rs.)
Tote Bag - Gift (I revamped the bag with chain detailing.)
Watch - Fastrack.
Cat eye Sunglasses - Vision Express (got during 30% sale for 800 Rs.)
Faux python heels - Inc 5 (Got during 50% sale for 799 Rs.)
Pearl Earrings - Vintage.
Makeup - M.A.C /Maybelline.
Nail polish - Colorama (shade - Vermelho Ardente)



Little Black Lace dress is an ultimate summer look. It's very easy to add edgy sophistication to the lace dress by keeping few essential style tips in mind.

1. Lace dress can be styled for a everyday look by adding statement heels. I am wearing faux python high heels. To break the femininity of the outfit you can add ankle boots

2. Red Nails definitely adds the extra oomph to the outfit.

3. Colored tote bag or quilted cross body bag is perfect way of accessorize lace dress.


The same black dress can be converted into a cocktail party look by minor alterations.


1. Statement Ring to break the femininity of the look. Keep the accessories to the minimum.

2. Go for Red lipstick. It definitely sasses up the outfit.

3. French twist and pearl earrings adds a sophisticated look to the lace dress.

4. Replace the tote bag with a statement clutch preferably in bright color.

My look is inspired by Brooklyn-Decker-In-Nha-Khanh red carpet look. I just added a personal twist with faux python heels and went with pink lips to convert it to everyday day outfit.



I found this black lace dress in Lifestyle Splash collections and was amazed at its striking resemble to Brooklyn Decker's outfit. Keep an eye out girls you can definitely nail celebrity look for less.

Hope these tips help you style lace dresses better.

Military and Lace.


Hello Everyone.

It's time for Wardrobe Wednesday. This week's inspiration is Military Jacket and Lace Dress.





























I am wearing


Lace Dress (dress worn as skirt) - Lifestyle (Splash Collections)
Military Jacket - Lifestyle (Splash Collections) (Dress and jacket bought during sale for 1000 Rs each.)
Pearl earrings - Vintage
Watch : Fastrack
Envelope Clutch - Crunchyfashion.com
Shoes - Trendz Bangalore (Got during 50% sale - cost me 800 Rs)
Cat Eye Sunglasses - Vision Express (Got during 40% sale - cost me 800 Rs)
Make up - M.A.C / Maybelline.



Lace continues to be one of the biggest trend this season. This spring we did see Military jackets make a comeback in Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week.

Two people who I think have rocked the Military trend are Kate Middleton , Duchess of Cambridge.She adds a very sophisticated touch to the trend. The second person is of course none other than "Michael Jackson". Can any of us forget the outrageous military jackets, the moon walk and the amazing songs??

But the biggest question is how to incorporate military trend for every-day looks? The best way to incorporate overly-fashionable trends is moderation. Few tips on how to incorporate Military trend :

1. One of the best way to break the femininity of lace dress is by teaming it up with wear a military jacket. (Like I have)

2. Be reasonable with the patterns and buttons to reduce the gaudiness the military trend tends to carry.

3. Ensure the military jacket stands out by pairing it with neutrals.( I have paired it with black)

4. Add a little pop of color in your accessories. (I have added red color in terms of heels and envelope clutch). Don't go overboard with colors. Remember one bright color at a time.

5. Pearl earrings are a perfect way to add a sophisticated look to the entire outfit.

Another great way of styling Military Jackets is colored Denims. Levi's has come up with new ankle skinny jeans as a part of Levi’s® Curve ID – custom fitting jeans that’s all about shape not size. Its inspired by Audrey Hepburn's timeless style, elegance and class.

The new denim collection for Spring 2012 features a wide variety of innovative, on-trend finishes ranging from bright indigo, tomato red and sunset coral to authentically crafted and worn looks. Have you checked out Levi's Curve ID yet???

Ready Red.


Hello Everyone.

Time for Wardrobe Wednesday. This week's inspiration : horizontal stripes and color blocking.





















I am wearing..

Horizontal Stripes Tunic - Max
Red Jacket - Thrifted from the streets of Malleswaram.(as seen in The Girl In the Red Coat)
Yellow Bag - Gift
Studded yellow sky high heels : yebhi.com (as seen in Wintery Blues and Yellow Shoes)
Watch - Fastrack
Cat eye Sunglasses - Vision Express (as seen in Bling Cat)
Jeggings - Nobrand.
Accessories : Lifestyle (owl chain)
yebhi.com


How to style Horizontal Stripes : (few style tips to help you get rid of the myths)

1. If you are petite, medium or larger stripes will dwarf you. Try wearing narrow stripes.

2. If you are medium scale, choose medium stripes.

3. Very tall and naturally slim, choose larger scale stripes.

4. Larger scale but curvy, choose medium stripe rather than a large one.

5. The wider the horizontal, the more your eye will slow down and focus on it and give a broadening effect.

6. The narrower the stripe, the harder it is for our eye to focus on one line, so narrow horizontals actually starts working like verticals, moving the eye up and down, rather than side to side.

7. The longer horizontal stripes (like I am wearing) acts similar to a vertical stripes and gives a elongated look without adding width.

8. While color blocking stripes stick to primary colors. (I chose red and yellow).

9. You can add 5th color but ensure you don't go overboard with colors. I have added blue earrings (again primary color. Ensure the 5th color is usually in the form of accesories).

Hope these style tips help you style horizontal stripes better and helps u let go of the myth "HORIZONTAL STRIPES MAKES YOU LOOK FAT"

Color Mania.



Hello Everyone.

Time for Wardrobe Wednesday. This week's inspiration is color block. I have added a retro touch to the entire outfit with the green aviators.





















I am wearing

Top : Lifestyle
Skirt : Lifestyle (Splash collection as seen in Yellow Summer).
Chain : Made by me (as seen in Bling Cat)
Heels : Catwalk (as seen in Metallic Mayhem, Black,white and Metallic me)
Bag : crunchyfashion.com
Watch and Sunglasses : Fastrack


The colorblock trend was seen on both the Spring and Fall runways. From Mercedes Benz fashion week to Wills India Lifestyle Fashion week, color block trend is back on the ramp. Few tips to remember while you color block and how you can incorporate it into your wardrobe.

1. Have at least two 2 colors and ensure you do not exceed 4 colors. (I chose 4 colors)

2. Block Solid colors. Do not block colored prints and multiple stripes.

3. Understand your body type. Larger men and women may not want to do any blocking with bright colors around the mid section.

4. Don't wear a color-block print with more darkness/lightness difference than naturally occurs between your hair, skin and eyes. For example, bold blocks of cobalt blue and lime green will be overwhelming if you have pale skin and hair. .

5. Color-block prints by typically break up or visually fracture the elongating and lean line solids given to a figure. If you are petite, be cautious of further shorten your look

6. Pick colors in similar shades-- i.e. don't mix pastels with brights.

7. Avoid excessive accessories when you are color blocking.

8. Want a low-risk way of trying the trend? Wear a pair of color-block shoes, slip on a few bracelets or carry a handbag in the motif with a simple plain outfit.

Here are my few favorite color block outfits. Hopefully it will help in inspiring you in trying color blocking.
