FOTD: FADED BURGUNDY EYEMAKEUP

Holidays are a fantastic time to create new looks and experiment with colors. I had shot this back in summers during our trip to Vienna but finally posting this with all the details. To think of it, it could actually be a great fall/winter look owing to the gorgeousness of this burgundy color.

The only eye shadow palette I had carried was this one – Electric Obsessions by Huda Beauty. Let me begin by telling you about all the products that have gone into creating this look.

ONE SHOULDER FORMAL YET CASUAL

The one shoulder trend is at its peak.Most of the online shopping websites are flooded with varied options of one shoulder tops and dresses. I picked up this satin olive green one shoulder blouse and carried it to one of my holidays. I always thought I could only wear it to a formal party with a pencil skirt and high heels but guess what!I finally wore it to a day long excursion with my all time favorite ONLY skinny black pants and Silver Laceup Cupsole Trainers from KOOVS!Here are few pictures from this look –

Sweater and Dhoti Swag!

I know it’s the season of sweaters and you still don’t want to let go of your swag. Tired of the “Beta, sweater pehno” instructions? So am I but it’s the month of January and the temperatures have been dropping further. I cannot do without my layers , yet cannot do away with my comfortable pants. So,last weekend for a small lunch gathering I decided to pick my dhoti pants and kept wondering what I can pair it with; without letting go of the quirk element. I googled quite a bit on a sweater/sweatshirt and dhoti combination and found nothing to my liking . So, I decided to create a look of my own with my all time favorite fit of Tommy Hilfiger pullover. All those who have seen my post on Eye Makeup:Long wings and pixie dust!  This makeup look was done with this red and black outfit!

 

The aviators and me are inseparable. The fact that they go well with anything and everything that I wear makes me really happy!

I tucked it in because I liked to show the dhoti in its full glory 😀 It looks casual and fun when you leave it out as well.

Time for an indoor picture after the sunny shoot on a cold day!

Don’t dump that oversized dress yet!

We all love to look at the mirror a zillion times in the store to be sure of the size, don’t we? Yet we cannot give up the habit of picking up stuff online. Similarly, a visit to a designer store guarantees the perfect fit customised to our body measurements, yet with time, either we gain or lose few pounds and the dress doesn’t fit us as it used to. Sigh, the endless girl problems. I found a hack to use and reuse my old oversized dresses. A good belt and a funky neckpiece has actually helped me rejig my look quite successfully. Here are some of the pictures from the latest look book –

 

Butterfly sleeves and butterflies in my stomach as I do my first outfit post on the blog 🙂

Love the fall of the dress – OSAA by Adarsh. The narrow tan belt which came with another Allen Solly dress helps bring in shape to the look!

I couldn’t have done away with this lovely dress just because I don’t fit perfectly in it any more.
