Caratlane is a Tanishq partnership opened their 30th store in India at Delhi’s South Extension. Well it was very cold that day but there was no way that those cold breezes could keep me from attending the launch of this fabulous store.

Lets talk a bit about their collection:-

There is no doubt that the store is huge and beautiful but nothing can beat the amazing pieces of jewellery. I was most impressed by their Jaipur, butterfly and floral collection. Being bought up in Jaipur I was blown away by the detailing of the collection. The Hawa Gulabi Jharokha Ring from the Jaipur collection was my absolute favourite. It did remind me of home. The butterfly collection was a huge hit amongst everyone. The pendents, rings and earrings could make for a beautiful set and stunning pieces on their own.

I am posting a few pictures of the store and their collection for you to enjoy. DSC_4221-A.jpgDSC_4196-A (1).jpg1512845168548IMG_20171210_002414_324IMG_20171210_002414_326IMG_20171210_002414_323.jpgIMG_20171209_121437_615.jpg

JUVIA’S PLACE ‘THE SAHARAN’ PALETTE: REVIEWS AND SWATCHES

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Juvia’s place ‘The Saharan’ Palette. It was launched last year and is priced at $28.00. IMG_0049.JPG

ABOUT THE PALETTE and INGREDIENTS:-wp-image-285992061png.png

THE PACKAGING:-

The Packaging is a lot similar to the other Juvia’s Place palettes. It’s a cardboard palette with pans of eye-shadows spread out within it. The front of the palette is red in color with mint trims.

THE INSPIRATION:-

The vibrant and lively shades are inspired by the Wodaabe festivities of the Fulani culture. At the end of September the Wodaabe people gather together and the young men dress up in elaborate costumes and makeup and perform songs and dances to impress the marriageable women.IMG_0051.JPG

THE SHADES:-

The amount of product in the palette is 18g/ .63oz. This palette contains 12 eye-shadows; 6 Metallic shades, 2 Satin shades and 4 Matte shades. IMG_0052.JPG

MY EXPERIENCE:-

I just fell in love with the palette. Its beautiful!! All the shades are extremely pigmented. The matte Shades (Chad, Sokoto, Jamila and Katsina) are very smooth and not at all chalky.

The Metallic shades (Fula, Senegal, Kia, Wodaabe, Bororo, Iman) are breathtaking and very shimmery.

The Satin shades (Lulu, Zoya) are silky and had very little amount of fall outs.

I created this look using the shades Chad, Sokoto, Bororo, Wadaabe and Zoya.

MY VERDICT:-

I would recommend everyone to invest in this palette. This is a beauty and a must have. Some of the shades like Katsina and Zoya are not that visible on Indian skin tone but the other matte and metallic foils are just amazing. The formula is one of the best on the market, with all shades being very buttery and highly pigmented. on the top of all this, I think the palette is very decently priced.

Let’s Patch Things up-Part 2

In my last post Lets Patch things up- part 1, I wrote about the latest trend of badges, patches, brooches and pins and how to style your clothing using this trend. This post is on styling accessories and shoes using badges, patches, brooches and pins.

screenshot_2016-04-14-18-39-59-1

  1. Trendy Bags:-

Back when I was in school we use to put badges on our backpack for the cool kids effect. Back then there were not many choices when it came to badges and patches. Smiley faces in round shape were easily available. Later came the badges with our favourite superhero emblems and TV stars (I remember owning a few Hannha Montana badges) but the shape was still round.

Now with the wide variety of designs and shapes being available, decorating your backpack is super easy. Big brands are embracing the patch trend and decorating their purses, totes, pouches, slings and clutches too.

Brands like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci have  also been using patches and badges lately to stay on trend and make their bags unique.

2. Caps/ Beanies/Hats:-

80s hair and head accessories have had a major fashion influence. Bikers and sports fan have always been seen rocking patches on their caps. But now its not just limited to bikers and sports fans or caps.

Putting 2 or 3 pins on a beanie is a great way to style this up.  You can also sew on a few patches on your favorite hat to match your outfit or location.pilled-up6c366f77f17ed0ccc2a02598278687db

3. Shoes:-

Patches can be put on any footwear – from boots to bellies and from heels to flats.

DIY your old pair of loafers or sneakers by sewing on some fun patches. Your boots can be given a whole new look by loading them with pins. For example, you can put the GAME OVER patch on your shoes for a great effect.tendencia-parches-zapatillas-renzo-costa-blogScreenshot_2016-04-17-10-28-54-1.png

So, I hope this post helps you embrace and own this trend.

Summer festival look and essentials

Hello everyone,
Summer is here and it’s the festive time!! We all love fashion, music and a mix of all that jazz.
I bring to you all the essentials that you need to look fabulous and chill at a summer music festival.

1) Sunnies:-
It’s summers and the sun is shinning high. I’m sure you girls want to enjoy this season instead of walking partially blinded in the sun. Wear a cool pair of sunglasses preferably a one with bright and colourful frames. They protect you from UV rays and are the coolest accessory available.

image

2) Caps/Hats:-
Hats and caps are the cutest head accessories possible. There are a huge variety, designs and colors available to match any possible outfit. It also shields you from the harsh harmful sun rays.

image

3) Footwear:-
Your feet need all the rest they can get as you have to do a lot of walking. Choose your most comfortable pair of heels or nice boots. Wedges or block heels would be a very good option

image

4) Accessories:-
The best accessories for a summer festival are hats and sunglasses as discussed earlier. If you are all about accessories go for a bunch of bracelets and a choker. Don’t go for a statement piece of jewellery as it would be hot and not comfortable at all.

image

5) Clothing:-
The temperatures are going to be hitting the roof so it’s the perfect time to pull out those shorts, skirts, backless tops and short dresses. A cute little flowy Bohemian dress would be great for the day. For colors it would be better to go for whites and pastel colors. Don’t go for dark colors as they absorb a lot of heat.

Also remember to keep yourself hydrated as this is the only thing that will keep you pumped up the entire day.

THREE WAYS TO STYLE A LONG MAXI SIDE SLIT TOP!!

Hey everyone,
I bought this cool Long maxi side slit top from FAB ALLEY and I simply love how versatile it is. You can just go crazy styling this top.

In this post I’m going to style this top in three different ways. So, let’s get going…(before I start, I would like to let all of you know that this post is not in collaboration with any brand)

1) AS A TOP-

In this look I paired the top with simple denim shorts that I bought from VERO MODA. I chose to wear a pair of sequence sneakers with it. To complete the look I wore a simple thin beaded necklace. This is a great look for a brunch or a movie or just a fun day out with friends.

Here are the details of the first look:-
Top- FAB ALLEY
Shorts- VERO MODA
Shoes- MAX FASHION INDIA
Necklace – LIFESTYLE

2) AS A DRESS-

In this look I simply made the top look like a belt by wearing a thin waist belt over the top. If the slit is too high for you, you can always use safety pins.
This dress can be paired with heels to give it a night gown feel. As you can add in some bling to boost your swag.

Here are the details of my second look:-
Dress- FAB ALLEY
Heels – JABONG
Necklace – BLING LANE
BELT- VERO MODA

3) AS A SKIRT-

Wear another top to cover the upper portion and use the lower portion as a long side slit maxi dress. I have accessoried this look with a scarf from accessorize. I tied the scarf around my neck in the form of a bow. This is a perfect date look.

Here are the details of my third look:-
Top- H&M
Skirt- FAB ALLEY
Scarf- ACCESSORIZE
Heels- JABONG

My favourite date Look !!

Hey everyone,

It’s never just dinner when you going to meet someone you are trying to impress. It is the second date when you want to be fabulous but not look like u r trying to hard. In that case go for this particular look!

image

So, here is how to play it cool!!

Dress:-

Wear a short dress, preferably black!! If you wear a Gaun it will be trying to hard. Don’t make it formal. Keep it as casual as possible. Black is the perfect choice of color as it is good for every occasion and makes everyone look perfect.

This is a little black dress is from CODE by lifestyle!!

image

Shoes:-

Wear Heels!!! A girl looks elegant, stylish, tall and invisible in heel. In order to play it cool don’t forget you are on a date and you are there to make a statement. Black or nude heels would be perfect. You can also wear red heels if you are planning on wearing red accessories.

image

Accessories:-

You want to be the one doing all the talking not your over the top accessories. Remember you are playing it cool. Wear a statement necklace or a pair of statement earrings. Wearing both a necklace and earrings can be a bad idea as it will shift all the attention to your accessories instead of your face.
This chunky bead necklace is from Accessorize.

image

Makeup:-

The makeup depends on the location of your date. Don’t forget to carry your compact and lipstick in your bag.
With this particular look I would never miss my bright red lipstick.
One of my favourite lipsticks is MAYBELLINE REBEL BOUQUET in shade REB04

image

And finally the thing you need to do is enjoy yourself!!! Have fun. Hope you find love!!

Hope I could be of some help and if you think the same don’t forget to leave a comment!!
