Bold and loud seems to be the theme of this season. Tops are cropped. Skirts are longer. And, lips are orangey.
From neon orange (already seen at Rag N Bone) to coral orange (check Creatures of the Wind), citrus oranges are replacing reds. Any kind of orange lipcolor you pick, from bright to matte, is bound to enliven your pretty face.
Warm colored, cool colored, hardly matters! Tangerine shades work for all skintones. How to get the perfect citrus pout? Here are the two best finds for coloring:
Though it is no news that women all over this planet are obsessed with the color pink. This obsession is set to thrive next fall in the form of pink coats.
Watch out for subtle tints of pinks, mostly any hue from dusty pink to shades of salmon.
Looks like Pinkaholics are in for a real treat.
Recently added to our fashion dictionary is word:
a covering for each leg from thigh to foot, typically made of leather, having a sturdy sole and reaching above the ankle.
Recently spotted at an array of Fall-14 runways, including that of peers like Just Cavalli and Fendi. Its been already flaunted by Leandre Medine of Man Repeller [see here].
Fashion apostles are likely to explore its utility next winter (since we are already waving goodbye to the present one) to reckon up the style quotient of a dress or to facilitate wear-ability of their favorite skirt or pair of shorts without turning themselves into ice statue.
While we continue to live in the world where people desperately root for happy love-filled ending, even for ogres (Remember Shrek??!! Now that I have said it out loud it sounds all the more ridiculous and insane.) Valentine’s Day is yet another attempt at satisfying our fetish for happy endings. It is not that I don’t believe in love, but it is just that I haven’t really come across a comprehensible understanding of the concept of love and I am pretty sure that you haven’t too.
Though I don’t really celebrate this festival of love, my liking for the day is attributed to:
1. Special cupcakes. YUM!!
2. Cool discounts on dresses.
3. Decorated malls.
For all the singles, who find it depressing to be around the love-struck people on Valentine’s Day, I’m willing to share my valentine’s day fixes (I promise they are simple unlike most).
1. Stay the hell away from idiot box’s endlessly reeling love stories, instead watch a reality show.
2. Gang up on the cupids with your single girlfriends. (Stock loads of ice-creams, you know, just in case.)
3. Work your ass off and earn overtime. And spend every bit of it on buying pretty things at slashed prices due to valentine’s day discounts.
4. Or, just celebrate the way everyone celebrates Christmas even if they are not christian. Drink some wine. And,then some more.
5. Lastly, just ask that guy/girl out. Yes, the one you have eyed since whenever. Remember people don’t bite!
I am going with the third. Earn and Spend. Here’s what on my list:
I have never been so interested in spaces before I realized what enormous opportunity it offered for creativity.While clothes limit the scope to two meters (on an average), spaces involve much wider scope. Though it is a common belief that a house speaks a lot about traits, character and life of its owner, it can also help define the same. A serene, calm interiors can bring uncanny tranquility and peace of mind in the owner’s life. Here’s how one can bring some peace to ones life: Since bedroom is an individual space wherein ones lies down after wearing out of all energy at the end of the day, it only makes sense to make it more serene place. Wash off all the color (if any) and paint you bedroom white, preferably in more creamy tones than bright white.
Now, here’s the new mood of the room.
Blue and white porcelain prints derived from vintage Chinese pottery are both clam and soothing.
Here, some inspirations from around the world to help your visualize:
Already in love with blue and white oriental prints? Though so.
Following are few easy-peasy steps on how to redecorate your room:
1. Pick out a pretty porcelain print wallpaper for one wall. Let the rest three walls be white with decorations such as photo-frames and clock of color blue.
2. Put up beautiful lace curtains to lend some more prettiness to room.
3. Last step, decorate the room with either white or wooden furniture.
And, this is what you can expect:
Love it?!!! This is definitely going to be my room when I renovate.
Planning my christmas and new year is definitely highlight of my year. Thank god for such blissful festive winter season. Only part I wish that christmas elves would do for me: buying perfect yet budget-friendly gift for my family. Ditto, huh!!!
Thankfully, I have found 5 best places to buy super cool gifts without burning holes in thy pocket and I am willing to share my secret.
Here is my gift list curated specially for my family:
1. Forever 21 sequin beret
That is what dear Santa is getting me this year. I like to start with myself. No it’s not selfish. Its self-concerning and a part of my shopping warmup.
2. Chumbak Iphone5 case
Couldn’t find my little brother a better gift than this alcohol Iphone case for Rs.595. Chumbak has quite fascinating range of mobile cases that makes choosing only one a little difficult.
3. Goodearth Dinner set
As much as I love every product from the namesake brand, this dinner set had irresistible feeling of royalty and heritage to it. The floral motifs on the plates are inspired by the Mughal Nishaat gardens on the edge of the Dal lake in Kashmir. One can customize their set by choosing number and size of the plates and bowls. Single plate starts from Rs.1400 and goes up to Rs.3000, which is pretty worth-it kinda gift for ones home-sweet-home considering its impeccable design.
Buying a gift for my father has always been tricky for me. This visiting cardholder for just Rs.595 might just be my best find till date.
For mom, of course. Pernia’s pop-up shop is one of the few best places to buy designer stuff, even for gifting. Where else would you get such gorgeous earrings for Rs.7250 only. Don’t you just love these?!!
Just like ice-creams taste splendid in winters, white looks way more tranquil in winters. White is explicitly amicable with the mist and snow that is consistent at this time of the year, for obvious reasons. With more that fifty shades of white (like cream, snow-white, star white and off-white), one can never go overboard with whites. Isabel Marant coached masses on how to mix shades of white for a head-to-toe white look. (I swear to god, that outfit was more than perfect). Stand unrivaled by ditching your conventional little black party dress for a serene white dress with metallic spots. Or try my personal favorite, white with dash of contrasting color. Got your doubts? Go check Fendi.
Here are 5 whites no one ever got wrong:
Forever New White Dress: I bet this is the one Cinderella wore to the Prince’s ball (probably, with longer length). Sweet, huh?!
Zara Leather Moto Jacket: A biker jacket couldn’t get more cooler.
H M Faux Fur Jacket: This ones a real smart pick. Why?!! In case you missed, look again at the cozy Marc Jacob fur coat above.
Mango Pants: A pair of white trousers is cross between formal and casual trousers. Totally indispensable.
ALDO Sneaker Wedges: These babies have been in trend for all year round. One more just got added to the list.
