IIJW 2015: My Day Out!

Hey lovely readers! ❤

Tonight I want to share my experience at the India International Jewellery Week 2015 with you guys 😀
I attended Day 2 of the IIJW at Grand Hyatt (Mumbai) and had a great time! This is how I looked!

I attended the show presented by the Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery (IIGJ) that showcased collections by Rahul Luthra, Cherry Sahni, Anushka Singhal and Rachna Gupta. Many designs caught my eye!

I was bewitched by Cherry Sahni’s exquisite collection! It was all about diamonds and TASSELS! It was amazing to see gems and pearls tied into tassels – so unique! B-)

The outfits were all denim! Denim and diamonds make an intriguing combination, don’t they? 😀

Aditi Arya, the ruling Miss India World was the showstopper for Cherry. She looked like a young goddess in an unconventional boho-chic denim bustier-style leotard and a sheer lace skirt, coupled with ultra high brown leather heels ^^’

After the show, I caught up with Cherry and her showstopper. Both ladies were gracious enough and the chat was effortless!

Aditi’s favourite thing about the collection was its perfectly harmonious blend of modern and traditional. Her denim-lace outfit definitely revealed both the chic coolness and grace that a women embodies, she felt.

As for Cherry, she couldn’t be happier about her showstopper! According to her, Aditi symbolises precisely what her collection puts forth – a globetrotter and a free spirit who is in touch with her roots.

Boho Chic Summer Look

Hi readers! ❤

Today I’m featuring one of my favourite pieces of garment this summer! This one was long due! Take a look at this monochrome printed kimono with fringe detail at the hemline. This is a thrifted item 😀

I love how this kimono is light and airy, making it perfect for this season! The fringes make it so much fun! And there are multiple ways to wear it. I’ll tell you some ways today 🙂

I opted for wrist accessories and a necklace, completely foregoing earrings. I completed the look with a pair of black leather espadrilles 🙂

You can opt for full coverage, by pairing the kimono with leggings..

OR create a playful summer look, as I did with the shorts 😎

Both outfits are quite versatile! The full black coverage is great for a formal meeting or simply, to feel cosy on a rainy day out 😉

The pure white look with the white linen shorts is perfect for everything, from hanging out at the mall and even going to the beach!

Quick Tips:

1. You can even pair this kimono with your bikini or a swim suit and it will look perfect!

2. You can also wear a belt or cord with the kimono, to add definition to your waist. Or you can just let it flow and enjoy the breeziness like me! ❤

So what do you think about kimonos? Would you like to try one, or do you love them already? 😀

Formal Lunch and Casual Hangout Outfit

Hey guys! ❤

A few days back, I shared the Fresh Summer Look with you. Today, I’ll share details of the full outfit! 🙂

IMG_20150515_133351

So for my makeup, I kept it light and fresh. I used a sunblock, covered it with compact and then started with the eye makeup. I used the basic chubby stick kajal from Lakme for my waterline, and a waterproof kajal from Revlon for my lids. I also used Maybelline‘s Hyper Curl Volum Express waterproof mascara on my lashes.

I wore my favourite red lip colour from TommyG cosmetics. They are a Greek brand and the product is AMAZING! The lip color has really high coverage. I have pigmented lips and they cover it up in just one swipe! You can apply 2 coats for a more vibrant colour. It also stays on for 5-6 hours easily without reapplication, WITH food and drinks!

The full outfit:

I kept the accessories to a minimum. Wore small black stud earrings, a medallion necklace and a turquoise beaded bracelet. I kept my nails clean and fresh with just a clear polish ❤

I kept a pair of reflective aviators handy as it was a sunny day 🙂

My top was a formal white one, with no embellishments or print. I paired it with plain black leggings and white, basket weave flats. I also carried a gunmetal grey hangbag 🙂

This outfit can be worn to the office, especially on casual Fridays. It is also perfect for formal lunches, and as evening wear if you’d like to head out for drinks after work. If you’re not a fan of bright red lips, you can even rock this look with your favourite shade of pink or coral! So, what do you think? 🙂

Fresh Summer Look

Hi people! ❤

Today, I decided to keep things understated and yet, striking. I kept the make up minimal and focused only on the eyes and lips. No eye shadow, no contouring! So this is how I looked today! 🙂

IMG_20150515_133351

For my eyes, I used ONLY kajal (kohl) – I’m a little afraid of liquid liners! 😛

Also, I kept my nails fresh and clean with a clear polish.

I paired this look with a formal white top, black leggings and gunmental grey leather handbag. Detailed post and pictures of my full outfit coming up tomorrow! 😀
