Hello peeps. Hope everyone is having a fabulous month. I am surely enjoying the weather by excess tea drinking and lots of reading. As far as seasons go Monsoons are my favorite but they are also the hardest months of dressing.
Monsoons are totally a no-jeans month for me. I just cannot tolerate that mud and muck on my pants. I love all my dresses but carrying the same style for quite sometime doesn’t sit well with me. So when I was standing in front my wardrobe little bored an idea came to my mind let’s play dress up. When I was a kid I use to take all sarees of my mom and just drape them around myself creating a mix-match but a mind satisfying effect 😉 . Then I grew up and things got complicated so I started playing less and worrying more. But I thought why not try mix matching again, why not play dress up again.
I had picked a beautiful striped short fitting skirt from Bossini but had never worn it as there was nothing in my wardrobe which matched it. I wanted to wear to it so badly that I decided if I am trying why not try something with this particular skirt. After trying few long tops on it (which looked good but not good enough) I came across my black dress and decided to try that with the skirt and the effect was Voila.
I just tucked the dress in the skirt and tied the belt (which is a part of the dress) in the front in a bow shape. It simply looks beautiful and chic. Much better than any crop top or tank top would look with it. And to be honest I am not a fan of crop tops unless they are in a set or oh-so-not-casual. I paired the dress with platform heeled shoes but you can wear stilettos too, my reason for wearing platforms were my leg sprain, but hey they look good. I am sure people who are reading this post must not be doing this but fair warning never ever carry a sling bag with this kind of outfit. The best bag that you can pair with it is a tote. Also avoid hobos they tend to look plain casual and even if this outfit is casual its downright sexy, so please don’t cause a disaster by carrying a hobo/sling with it. You can carry a purse but since I carry a lot of stuff while I go out ( as my boyfriend says my bag is the atlantic ocean) I need to carry a tote. Another pointer when you are wearing a monochrome outfit don’t try contrast colour bags as they totally kill your outfit. The only contrast you need to try here is with your make up. Discard the browns and go with the reds and pink. I simply love red so I am wearing a Revlon Red Lipstick here and a basic N42 Compact by Mac (which sums up my make up). You can try wearing collar jewelry with this outfit it adds the right amount of dash (I am not wearing any as my purpose that day was casual). All this and you are ready.
I have written a short blog today because I just wanted to highlight that fashionistas use their brain too. It’s not just wearing anything that comes in front of your eyes.
Fashion is about using your brains and thinking out of the box. Don’t copy your favorite fashionistas, instead take inspiration from them, add your own style statement and create an absolutely fabulous look 🙂 . Also you don’t need to always go shopping to create an amazing outfit, every fashionistas wardrobe is awesome so out of those if you put two super outfits together the effect will be fantabulous.
You were born original. If you copy someone you can only achieve less than what they have but remember a Woman who doesn’t follow anyone and takes that left turn actually is leading to Discovery.
Love and Light
