No basic chick

You really don’t look like a fashion blogger… I mean you don’t dress up like a fashion blogger.

Umm..what?

I mean you should really think about it before taking up fashion blogging seriously, you don’t dress like them!

Sakshi K Relan Spring/Summer Collection’16 Preview

Hello lovelies!

How is summer treating you? I for one have made friends with air conditioner 😀 And if you’re following me instagram, you must be knowing I am pretty much stuck at home this summer, thanks to my knee injury. Anyhoo, recently I attended the spring/summer collection preview of Sakshi Relan, saying I was pretty impressed by her functional indo-western mix would be an understatement. Will leave you with the pictures to have a taste of her summer collection.

About Sakshi K Relan

The Brand ‘Sakshi K Relan’ by Sakshi Relan is one of the most promising entrants in the Indian Fashion Industry. Despite holding an MBA degree in HR & Marketing from the most prestigious Cardiff University, Sakshi chose to follow her passion and picked designing as a career option.

 

Having a very distinct, urban sense of styling, Sakshi uses basic colours like Beige, Blacks, White and Blue in her collection. With a knack to create high fashion in a chic avatar, the designer marries Haute Couture, rich fabrics with vivacious cuts and drapes, in a fun, edgy and one-of-a-kind manner. With an International, cutting-edge silhouette in mind, her outfits exude a global sensibility that enhances their appeal and have a dramatic appeal. Her collection has an interesting mix of western and indo western clothes and every piece has been hand-woven to perfection.

There She Goes..Looking Like A Star ★★

I created a fun and simple outfit look for summer & beachy theme; Shweta who is very talented in make-up has done a coordinating FOTD and Raji,who is a nail art enthusiast did a NOTD. Both of the looks can be effortlessly achieved and that adds tremendously to their “cool” factor.

My perfect beach outfit would be a bikini top with a sheer cropped top and cute pink shorts or a wrap around…but whom am I kidding right?! o_0  It would take ages for women to roam freely in bikinis at Indian beaches!! :/ Hence, a romper is apt for such weekend getaways to the beach in summers 🙂

A Day In Stripes In Part-1

A Day In Striped Part-1

Makeup, Style and Sugar 1

Heya lovely people!

How are you all doing? Well summers have just started but Delhi’s weather is getting hotter day by day..dunno what will happen in June 😥

I am all excited and pepped up this month since it is my B’day month! 😀 Don’t you feel all chirpy and giggly in your birthday month? Imma Taurian btw 😛

Moving onto my outfit, by now you must be knowing that how much I love mixing trends together and yes yes you guessed it right..I love adding colors to my outfit. Black&White is a HUGE trend in fashion this year but I didn’t seem to find anything for me 😦 just then I found the perfect one in Vero Moda..with a pop of pink and I was like Hallelujah! *grin* Here I am wearing 3 trends together :- Stripes trend, Black&White trend and Neon trend..it is a bang on combination *u*

Makeup, Style and Sugar 2

#MYTH BUSTER ~ Horizontal stripes not only compliments petite frames but it compliments curvy beauties too, yep you read it right 🙂 Just remember curvy ladies should opt for sucha piece which fits well on the thinnest area of your waist..leaving it a lil’ loose on the upper and lower side, hence creating a peplum effect. Else you can always wear a thin belt on your waist for the same effect.

~ Also you can wear something in solid color to break the illusion of horizontal stripes and voila, you are all set to rock in horizontal stripes ^u^

I wore a textured Electric Blue mini skirt along with comfort fit Black&White top and added a black necklace and a statement ring with black heels 🙂 Since my attire had all the drama, I wore a simple peachy-brown lippie (it’s my MLBB shade :-*) and black rimmed eyes with a hint a Electric Blue 🙂

Hope the myth busting tips helped you and you liked my look 😀

Black&White Striped Top – Vero Moda

Electric Blue Mini – Zara

Black Necklace – Online Shopping

Black Heels – Charles and Kieth
