Hunkemoller India

Lingerie is my next love after clothing; I think it is what is worn underneath that really inspires a woman to feel beautiful in her clothes - that inner, secret glamour.
-Alice Temperley
 
Hey Girls!
 
It is true that wearing amazing lingerie inside is as important as the clothes outside to make you feel beautiful and give you confidence. I have always made sure to give equal importance to my inner wear as much as the outfits I style outside. India doesn't have many of the amazing lingrie giants that we find abroad so I used to visit my favourite stores when I used to travel abroad. One of my most favourite lingrie brand is Hunkemoller. It's a Dutch lingrie brand with an amazing collection of everything that a girl secretly desires. And guess what? They just opened up their first outlet in DLF Promenade Mall, New Delhi. How awesome is that!
 
From the minute I heard that Hunkemoller is in India, I had to go visit the store and check out their collection. They have a really adorable store and I am completely in love with their collection. They say that almost 90% of the women in India wear the wrong sized bra and for that reason they took it up on themselves to find the right size for each lady who visits their store and help her in picking the right shape according to her body shape. For the same reason, they have a Discover the Perfect Bra chart which measures your size based upon Fullness, Spacing and Measurements. 

Once your test is done, you would know what size of bra is perfect for you and never again would you ever buy something that doesn't fit right. There are 4 main shapes of bra that Hunkemoller has namely Beautiful Balcony, Delicious Demi, Fabulous Full Cup an Perfect Plunge. After the test when you know your size, they will help you pick one of the 4 bras that sit perfectly on your body. 

Beautiful Balcony is a dreamy combination of life and comfort. The straps go wide apart and you can flaunt your beautiful neckline. Delicious Demi is one of the most loved bras which combines comfort, style and the demi subtly enhances your cleavage. Fabulous Full Cup helps in making fashion and comfort meet together to give you full coverage and maximum support. Perfect Plunge gives you the ultimate cleavage with a lift and creates the most sensuous look. 

Apart from this, you would find a wide collection on nightwear, bridal lingerie and accessories. You should definitely check out their store.

New Year with Deal Jeans

I believe that fashion is the ultimate form if self expression therefore it really depends on my mood.
-Nicole Richie
Hi there,
I have been traveling so much in December that I think I should start a travel blog of my own. I just got back from Lakshadweep and it was so beautiful. It's not commercialized like Goa and is a purely untouched place. I will be writing down a blog for my trip to give you guys all details just in case you want to make that trip. My traveling for the month is over just in time for me to pick an outfit for a little new year party I am going for.  
I don't want to go clubbing this New Years but I plan on going for a nice dinner with my close ones. This new years I want to have a peaceful time with good food at an amazing place and spend quality time with my parents. For the same reason I picked up a gorgeous knee length bodycon dress in hot pink color from Deal Jeans. The neck of the outfit is very unique and has a mix of net work. The whole look of the dress comes from its perfect fitting and the beautiful neck work. I love wearing bodycon dresses for dinners and I think their accentuate your body type really well and make you look amazing for a party. 
There are several types if Bodycon dresses. You needn't be conscious of wearing a bodycon if you have love handles and a little tummy as some good bodycons with thick material like this one from Deal Jeans actually hold your body really well and hide your flaws. I truly love the quality of this outfit and I definitely recommend you guys to go check out the collection of Deal Jeans for your new year fix. They have a wide range of outfits and you can choose your perfect outfit from their never ending collection. 

I styled this outfit with a pair of basic black heels and left my hair curly and wavy for a more natural look. For a dinner, you can even go for a beautiful bun and put some gorgeous hair accessories. I hope you enjoyed reading about my New Year fix. Have a look at the pictures below:-

My Wood Watch by JORD

Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.
-Orson Welles

Hi there,
Watches are my all time favourite accessories. You guys might have noticed my collection of watches and how on every occasion I gift myself a new watch. I think watches are a great style statement and my watches definitely define me. Instead of picking any other accessory, I always choose to pick a watch as my fashion fix with all outfits. So recently I came across amazing Wood Watches by JORD. You can check out their website here. The minute I saw their collection, I completely fell in love with their beautifully curated wood watches. So I immediately ordered one for me and planned to style it this holiday season. 

The wood watches by JORD are unique and stylish watches that make a style statement for you and will make sure to turn heads when you style them. These are purely wooden finish watches which look very delicate and elegant. I got 2 watches one from their mens collection for dad as a Christmas gift and the other one for me. I was super excited to show you my new JORD watch so I styled an outfit for you guys to give you guys a preview of the watch. 

I am wearing a fur waistcoat jacket along with a high waist denims. The best part about the watch that I got is that it looks good with everything. The basic white wood color is something that you can wear with all outfits without having to worry if the color matches your outfit. This watch is so unique that you can style it with formals, casuals, party wear, all sorts of outfits. I am completely in love with the watch and I am planning to order another one really soon as my mom can;t keep her eyes off this one. Also, i believe that watches are one gift that are gifted the most during holiday season and that's why I feel that instead of gifting a regular watch, why not gift a wood watch and surprise your loved ones with something new?

Enjoy the pictures!


What I Wore:-
Denims- Bugis Street, Singapore
Fur Coat- Street Shopping, Delhi
Shoes- Forever 21

Stepping into Winter with Elle Fashionwear

What I most identify with is effortless fashion, looking as if someone's not put a lot of effort into their look.
-Sara Blakely

Hola!
It's getting so cold suddenly! I got up today morning and felt the chills. It's time to take out all your winter clothes and woolens. Sunny mornings are pleasant but evenings are super cold. I went winter shopping a few days back and got a couple of amazing outfits from Elle Fashionwear's Autumn Winter Collection. Their collection has very subtle and elegant winter outfits that you can style everyday.  I go for a lot of meetings in the mornings and so I got a really pretty formal woolen dress and styled it for you guys. 

It's a super comfortable warm dress which looks very formal and comes with a black waist belt. I love wearing these pretty woolen dresses in winters in color like black, maroon and grey. These winter shades make the perfect outfit in cold mornings. Elle Fashionwear has a wide collection of jackets and tops that you can style in winter. Apart for such elegant dresses, you have a range of leather jackets. For meetings and going for lunch, I prefer the look I did for you in this blog post. For hanging out with your friends and a fun evening, I would go for leather jackets. 

I love the fitting of the outfits and denims by Elle Fashionwear. The clothes always have the perfect fitting and I never have a problem finding the perfect fit in warm winter clothes too. I styled this dress with a pair of cute heart shaped sunnies, pointed pumps and a black leather formal bag. The latest range of Elle Fashionwear has a wide variety of denims too which can be styled with their cute printed tops and layered with leather jackets for cold evenings. This look is more for sunny mornings. To complete the look, I have put my favourite shade of red lippy from Mac called Ruby Woo. 

Do visit the Elle Fashionwear store and tag me in your pictures if you style any outfit from their collection. I would love to see what's your winter style statement. Enjoy the pictures!

Design your own Lehenga

I'm not really a fashion designer. I just love clothes. I've never been to design school. I can't sketch. I can't cut patterns and things. I can shorten things. I can make a dress out of a scarf.
-Kate Moss



 Hola!
I had posted a blog post "Udaipur Diaries" couple of months back where I designed my own lehenga and wore it for one of my cousins wedding function. Many of you wanted to buy that lehenga and so many of you asked me about how to get your lehenga stitched. Well, here is another lehenga which I designed and I though of giving you guys all details about how you can do the same and what all will you need.

Since I am based out of Delhi, I can tell Delhi people about the exact places I went to for sourcing the clothes and getting the lehenga stitched but for the rest of you, you can read about what cloth you need and get a basic idea. Rest you will have to find out about a good tailor and material sourcing places yourself. I believe that you don't have to be a fashion designer to design your own clothes. You just need to be creative and do a little research. My mom stitches clothes and I have designed several pretty Indian outfits which she has stitched for me. We make a great team like that. From her, I did not learn stitching but I did learn how to source cloth, check the quality and get it stitched to look awesome.

For a lehenga, I mostly prefer net material since it is light and can be layered with a lot of tulle inside to make it look very puffy. And for the choli, I prefer raw silk. The duppatta again is of net with the same raw silk border as the choli. I source all my materials from either Nehru place or Chandni Chowk in Delhi. Going to Chandni Chowk and sourcing material can be a big headache due to the traffic and it's always really crowded but it's totally worth it since you can get everything from there. Whenever I gather the courage to go there, I get several things for different outfits at one time. I get the main net material for the lehenga with the design, a lot of plain white net for layering the lehenga which we need to dye according to the color theme of lehenga and raw silk for for choli and borders.

Instead of the net, you can even go for crepe material. It has a very smooth finish and looks very elegant. If you check out the video, you will see how I have puffed up my lehenga heavily with a lot of tulle inside and its giving an amazing flow. I love getting high waist lehengas stitched with almost backless choli and light duppattas. After I have sourced the material, I get it stitched from Naaz Boutique which is in the basement of DT City Center Mall, MG Road, Gurgaon. I know that's pretty far but I don't think I have found a better tailor yet and he has been stitching a lot of outfits for me since a long time. The boutique gets the cloth dyes, puts all borders and all the little things you need. Otherwise it's another headache to go to another place to first get the cloth dyed and then take it to the tailor.

Here is what my outfit looks like!

Winter with Ed Hardy

The best fashion advice I'd say would be just to do what makes you comfortable and what makes you feel cute, and that's how you're gonna look your best 'cause when you feel your best, everybody else can feel it, too.
-Ariana Grande

 Hi there!
Winters are finally here in Delhi and it's getting super cold day by day. Specially the nights are getting really chilly and I am loving the amazing weather. It's a nice break from the scorching heat and ofcourse winters are gonna help me reduce my tan, get pretty skin and I get to dress up in amazing jackets. I am sure all you guys love layering up your clothes with amazing jackets and styling your outfits with boots. You can be really creative with fashion in winter and this season I bought a couple of jackets and denims from Ed Hardy which I couldn't to share with you. 

Ed Hardy is one of the craziest and the coolest brands I love. The brand is identified by their super crazy tattoo designs on outfits and some amazing biker designs. I love being all sporty and over anything else, I choose comfort. I visited Ed Hardy store a week back for my winter shopping and I absolutely fell in love with their Autumn Winter Collection. They have amazing denims, jackets and t-shirts to make your winters warm and stylish. I got a classic black jacket that goes with everything and can be layered over different clothes. I think we all should have a nice black jacket which can be picked up anytime and be worn even if we are in a hurry as we really don't need to think if it's matching our outfits. 

Along with the jacket, I got a pair of slightly ripped denims. Well we all know that ripped denims were a big fad last season but in winters we can't really sport heavily ripped denims. So a little dark shade of denims with slightly ripped denims work pretty good in winters. I styled the outfit with a neon tank top tied on one side with a pair of black wedge sneakers. 

Enjoy the pictures!

Style that Skater!

I just love fashion. I think it just expresses who you are so much.
-Lindsay Lohan

Hola!
I have been loving the slow transition of  summers falling into the arms of winter. Delhi has started getting chilly and I have already taken out my hot basics of winters i.e. boots and leather jackets. The best part about winters is wearing amazing boots and sexy leather jackets. Since winters haven't completely set in, I am doing some pre-winter outfits for you which you can rock while you can still wear dresses. 

I have been in love with Candidly Couture's outfits and you really need to check out their fall collection. I got a very pretty skater dress from them that fits like a dream. Some dresses accentuate your body type and make enhance your curves and best parts of the body. This dress is the perfect fitting and shape. I love ho it hugs my body and makes it look amazing. I like wearing plain skater dresses this season with scarves and leather jackets. These basic dresses can be easily styled and look good with boots and block high ankle heels. 

I styled the outfit with a pair of boots I have been dying to show guys! I got these amazing suede leather thigh high fringe boots from Koovs sometime back. I love everything about these boots! They are flat and comfortable, these keep you warm, they are made of suede leather, they have fringes and they are thigh high. You can even push them down a little and reduce their length like me and wear it till your knees like me. I styled the outfit with a leather jacket from Zara too to give in a little biker look. Apart from this I am carrying my new sling bag from Candidly Couture. They have a crazy collection of bags and you need to check them out for sure. 

Enjoy the Pictures!

My Scarf Affair

"There is a shade of red for every woman." 
—Audrey Hepburn

Hi Lovelies!
So winters are almost here and I am starting to feel the chills already. I am not too much of a winter person, I would rather stay in a warm place then cold but I love dressing up in winters. The only thing I miss about winters is layering up my clothes in pretty ways and trying different styles. Summer for me is more of jumping into shorts and a skater dress and getting ready in minutes. But I really enjoy dressing up in winters. 

The one thing that makes our outfits look admirably amazing during winters are scarves. I recently came across this online store called My Scarf Affair which specializes in gorgeous vintage Russian scarves. There are scarves that look pretty but are not warm then there are scarves that are so that to make you warm that they sore your neck sore. But these gorgeous vintage scarves are beautiful and keep you really warm. You can layer your outfits with colorful vintage scarves with tassels and make your outfits stand out. There are so many ways of draping a scarf around and you can be super creative with that. 

Just to show you how just a scarf can make your outfit look outstanding, I wore a plain black outfit and styled it with a Red Russian Scarf from My Scarf Affair. As they say, when in doubt, wear red! The minute I say this red scarf, I completely fell in love. The scarf is made of light wool and is very warm. It has a striking and vibrant pattern that will make you completely fall in love. 

I styled this scarf with a caged bralette and a classic black skater skirt. I wore sheer stockings along with a pair of cute black socks and suede boots. To complete the look, I wore a matching red headband which I made myself and carried a sequinned clutch. You can even style this outfit with a big black hat. So are you ready to have an affair with scarves with My Scraf Affair?
Here are the pictures:-

Fall Look with StalkBuyLove

I think that, like any art, fashion is about expression. It allows you to express yourself and your identity through what you choose to wear.
-Erin Heatherton

 Hola!
The wedding season is here again and so many wedding are happening in November. I have been crazy busy deciding my outfits and everything for the weddings. As a kid I never attended weddings and that's why I am super excited about the weddings in my family now. I want to be a part of all events and I am going to update you with my outfits and where I got them from.

Apart from all the wedding drama happening, I thought of doing a fall look for you guys. I love the beautiful yellow leaves falling off the trees in autumn and making the whole place full of pretty bright leaves. And for the same reason I love wearing yellow and browns for fall. For this post, I am wearing a full StalkBuyLove outfit. I shop from them almost every month and absolutely love their products. You can find really pretty casual outfits their and this is something I recently got. My love for polka dots is eternal so I got a pretty retro halter polka dot peplum top along with a par of white pants and a white fringe bag.

This look is a little retro with the polka dot top and big round sunglasses. I have always been a  fan of retro styles and this is my modern take on retro fashion. Yellow looks amazing on white and since I wanted to keep the whole attention on my pretty new top, I styled it with white pants and fringe bag. All you girls keep asking me about fringe bags, well, StalkBuyLove's this bag is pretty amazing and it matches with mostly everything. So now you know where to get your hands on a fringe bag from.

To complete my look, I am wearing golden glitter heels from Intoto. I absolutely love their pretty princess like heels but I do admit that it's a little hard for me to walk in them since they don't have any platform. You can even style this outfit with plain white block heels or a nude pair of stilettos. I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

xoxo
