OOTD - Feathers at Work !!

Hi everyone !! <3
Its such a lovely morning here in Delhi as its raining continuously since yesterday! But thank god I reached office safely without getting caught up in traffic jam which these rains cause.

Another day I received this absolutely gorgeous feather print top from Oasap.com with cut-out sleeves which are soooo In trend these days. I wore it to work last week with my black pants and flats. The top ( dress as mentioned at the website :P ) also featured some embellished stones at the sleeves which I removed as they weren't looking very nice.

These pictures were clicked by my friend in our office only, so obviously you can't see me posing or getting better shots :D ..

And because I don't have much to say, have a look at the lovely top from Oasap.com -
You can even buy the top from HERE
Top- Oasap.com
Pants- Bangkok
Flats- Mellow Yellow

I did some more shopping last weekend from Accessorize and Vero Moda / ZARA which I'll share soon in the next blog post.

Hello everyone !
Hope you all are doing good.. Last weekend I had lotsaa fun after a longgg time.
Firstly, one of my bestest friends was visiting my place so we both went shopping and eating out, playing games at Hide Out- Select City Walk.
Secondly and majorly, I got the opportunity to attend Black Dog Easy Evenings at Hotel Westin, Gurgaon with Melissa Totten who performed on the famous songs of Madonna.

Totten is here on a seven-city-tour, which started in Goa Aug 17, followed by her Delhi show, and now she will move to Shillong, Kolkata, Bhubaneswar, Vizag and a last performance in Hyderabad Aug 31.

I have never been to Black Dog Easy Evenings before so I was really looking forward to attend the same with my friend as we were all tired with all the shopping and travel the whole weekend.
The venue was the amazing Ball Room of the hotel and we headed to the Black Dog bars which were open for all the guests till the performance started, with the best of the liquors being served. Delicious snacks and cupcakes were also being served alongside to all the guests.

Blogavon' 12 - Bloggers Meet with Avon !!!

Tadaaa.. Hellooo everyone !!
I am soo glad that you all enjoyed my last post :D I'll surely be coming with frequent outfit posts now... 
So I attended this Avon Bloggers Meet last Saturday with fellow Delhi Beauty & Fashion Bloggers. 
It was lotsa fun with all the make-overs and cute Nail arts we all received with a presentation on AVON where the brand's strategy and product range was discussed.

The day was full of surprises, with the rain coming up and ofcourse stopping unexpectedly!!! At a point, I thought I won't be able to make it.. But then I somehow reached when the rain slowed down.

The make-overs were being done for all the bloggers by the time I reached and I also received one and I asked the Avon lady ( I forgot her name :( ) to do only light makeup on me and she applied a Green Eyeliner on my eyes to give a contrast to my outfit.

Then we were asked to go upstairs for a presentation on AVON by Mr. Ujjwal Mukhopadhyay, CEO of AVON INDIA, which was followed by Snacks and ending up with Nail-art session and having a fun photo-shoot with different props provided ( the blue bow was my favorite :D )..

Here are some Global Facts about AVON -
  • Avon, the company for women, is a leading global beauty company, with over $10 billion in annual revenue. As the world’s largest direct seller, Avon markets to women in more than 100 countries through approximately 6.5 million active independent Avon Sales Representatives.
  • Globally, 4 Avon lipsticks are sold every second
  • More beauty products carry the Avon name than any other brand in the world
  • Avon is the largest corporate supporter focused solely on women’s issues across the globe

  • Avon is one of only a handful of companies to have been on the Fortune 500 list every year since the list’s inception.
  • Avon is a leader in funding breast cancer research and access to care, and in supporting efforts to reduce domestic and gender violence. Avon global philanthropy has donated more than $800 million in more than 50 countries for causes most important to women, led by the Avon Foundation for Women, a US 501(c)(3) public charity.

OOTD - Let me be a Little Girl !!

Hey everyone !!
First of all I wish a Happy Independence Day to all the fellow Indian readers.. And for the info of my International readers- India got independent on this day back in 1947 !! 
We celebrated it at work too with all of the employees turning up in Ethnic Wear. ( I wore a new suit with black-grey printed shirt and turquoise blue salwar which I got stitched from a boutique in my hometown) ..

Back to the post title ! I guess almost all the girls of my age would be going through this phase when they are done with studies, started working and now all that their parents-relatives can talk about is - GETTING MARRIED !!
Its so irritating that whenever you visit your relatives' place, the only thing that they talk about is- So when do you plan to get married?? We have seen this really nice guy !!! .
Urghhh.. Its soo irritatinggg.. I mean its only been 5months since am working. Give me a BREAKK !!

But nooo...relatives would be relativess. And then they'll make a call to your parents telling them about all the prospective GROOMS.. huhhh..
Last what I heard on this front was my dad telling my mom that he thinks I can still wait for an year or soo.. Itni bhi kya jaldi hai.. ( there's no hurry to get me married ).. Well all I can say is - PHEWWWW !!!

I think I am still very immature when it comes to a big decision like MARRIAGE.. Why? Because I still can't cook ( which I tell you is a basic necessity as all my cousins say) ... I love shopping endlessly... I still behave so childish .. AND I still have soo many things to do before I get married like going to Goa with my friends, enjoy my career and uhmmm.. I'll think of more such stuff to do.. :|

Without blabbering any more here are few pictures of what I wore to another shopping trip to Select City Walk, Delhi with a friend -
Dress- FashionandYou.com
Shoes - Local store
Bag- Leora
Glasses - ALDO
Bracelets - ALDO
Watch - ALDO
Necklace - Aliexpress.com



I have a couple of over-due postssssssss... Featuring some Oasap.com stuff I got and another one for the Avon Bloggers Meet I attended last Saturday.
I surely need to get more pictures clicked soooooooooon.......
Till then, take care and enjoy the holiday.
Loads of love

OOTD- Something Traditional / What I wore at Rakhshabandhan!

Hey everyone !
Hope you all are doing great. This week has not been very good for me. Apart from some personal issues, I had been invited by SIGNATURE for the Delhi Couture Week- Day 3 to feature Manish Arora and Anju Modi's shows at my blog!!
But Alas... As the luck would have it- I could not attend the same due to some problem and I really really feel sooo bad about it !! I was looking forward to attend the same sooo eagerly and had thought to share the awesome pictures from the event with you all !! But anyways, it wasn't in my hands- Maybe I get this opportunity again sometime...

Moving forward, I had mentioned last time that I'll be sharing the outfit I wore at Rakshabandhan - which this year happened to be an awesome Get-together at my place as it happened to be my Naanu's birthday as well. So all the relatives gathered at his place to celebrate the same as well as Rakhi !

I wore a Kurta and salwar at the occasion with a pair of wedges. And for the records, this is my first outfit post at this blog wearing Indian traditional clothes.
Well its not that I don't like ethnic wear, just that I avoid wearing them in summers as I sweat a lottt and managing a salwar in summers can be tough !!!

So anyways, here are few pictures of what I wore-

How to Wear Drapes According to Body Type?

There's nothing as gorgeous and feminine as Drapes look on women. I love the way drapes can make us look simply elegant to simply extravagant and everything in between.

In the recently organized Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil showcased an entire collection of drapes that best flatter a woman’s curves. Drapes can make any women look curvy and sexier, but one must know about what kind of drapes would suit their body type the best.

So I thought of sharing with you all how one can wear drapes according to their body type -

Hour-Glass shaped Women – With a narrower waist and equal hip and bust measurements, women with this body type should dress to flatter their beautiful curves. These women should wear drapes with low necklines which fall over their natural curves making them look sexier. Ruffles, bows and other details which add volume should be avoided.
