How to Look a Royal Fashionista at Racecourse

My fashionistas, it’s been long I have blogged. I had tried so many looks in the mean time but didn’t have professional photos to share with you all, moreover I was away in the USA busy attending a conference and doing some touristy activities;) Since I have come back I’m snowed down under work, attending events, mundane life etc. One such event was a day out at the newmarket racecourse. My very first racecourse experience and today I’m here to share with you all the Look I donned there.

How to Dress: Striped Pencil Skirts and Basic Sweaters

My fashionistas, don’t be surprised! Yes. This is a fashionista look. A black & white striped pencil skirt and a basic sweater  is officially a Look.

I love days like yesterday, when I get to experience  rain, sun and chilly wind in one afternoon, so I decide to dress up to confuse;) Instead of trying to flog trends you and I both do no one any favours, like some dirty pusher of peplums and platforms, I thought to wear this apple green basic sweater with V-neck  (my favourite) from Zara to beat the cold wind and team it up with this black & white striped pencil skirt ( Primark) to let the sun kiss my feet. I can’t think of wearing a pencil skirt with a pair of flat shoes. Done with high heeled pumps and court shoes, so thought to dig in the shoe closet to bring out some oldies and I found this metallic grey strappy stillettos that I bought from Pantaloons on my last visit to India. My hand bag is picked from a weekend flea market in Wembley, London. I love the large white flower as bag:) I assume they are from Thailand. I have this Hermès patterned silk scarf  that I don’t even know where I picked up from which has very ambigious print all over and match with my  sweater. It is nothing new to any of you that there are thousands of ways to tie a scarf, I thought this side-single-knot would be appropriate because in this way the V-neck would be seen clearly and the wind will do the needful to fly the pieces left open…just to add a bit of glamour you see;)

In the middle of this unpredictable English summer, when the rain has taken over completely, the cold wind has hugged us tight and sun is gradually fading off, it’s time to try new colors on your nails to match with clothes. Here is my this weekend’s nail art experiment I did myself–very easy peasy. You may try this with colours of your choice. They are by Barry M, available in Boots. I’m sure you can find them anywhere in your respective cities and countries. I just wanted to share with you all:)

The only accessories I have worn with this look is this pair of hair clips from Accessorize. I didn’t want to go with much make-up on a cloudy, rainy, partly sunny confusing day, so I drew my eye-line with my minted crayon kohl pencil from Mac and blend  both the upper and lower line with a blending brush, finishing touch was a dash of pink-peach lip gloss from Bodyshop. So, this is how created a look that I donned today on my weekend exploration at one of the vintage markets-Portobello Road, in London.

I have shared here another option of accessories to mix and  match that goes with this skirt and sweater. Try it, if you like it. I like to hear what you think at the comment section:)

Peplum + Lace Skirt+ Nude Pump+ Pearl Necklace

My fashionistas, here is a look I donned yesterday-on my partner’s birthday. I wore this new coral peplum top from ZARA. Peplums are  my current favourite as they come as a gown, skirt, top, cocktail dress or even a  A-line shift dress!

Peplum + Lace Skirt + Nude Pump + Pearl Necklace

 I first saw a peplum-do on Former Miss world Aishwarya Rai at Cannes Film festival in 2011 in a Elie Saab off-shoulder gown from Spring 2011 couture collection. I just knew then that this is going to be a style statement comeback for this year. Here you go!!! All high street brands are stocked with Peplums now.

Peplums are great for women who wants to have a more defined waist. However, women like me who are genetically curvy and have definition around the waist-line can do without this as Peplum makes us look lil plump;) So, before sporting a full-fledged peplum dress, I tried a peplum top first.

I teamed up this look with my brand new white lace skirt from Primark which I bought quite some time ago but wore it first time yesterday. I dug out my jewellery collection the other day and found this royal  yet girly pearl neckpiece from Topshop. Layers of pearls bring a sense of elegance to any outfit and this large  flower attached make it perfectly girly. I couldn’t think of anything better than this pair  of nude pump from Aldo to wear with this outfit and carry this faux snake skinned mint green vanity bag from Primark, replica of a Chloe bag,  If I tell you th eoriginal price of it, you will be excited and surprised at the same time. This is what I call smart-shopping when you sport a fashionista look with a total burgain buy.  I love the golden lock particularly. Some soft curls with a half-up do completed this look. I thought my latest buy-the chubby stick Mega Melon by Clinique  would go perfectly well with the coral peplum top. I love matching my nails with the lip:) I wanted to keep it minimal as far as eye make-up is concerned as it was a day-out look, so just put one coat of my ivory Mac and then wore my black liquid eye-liner by Illamasqua . Voila!

Clinique’s Chubbystick…you won’t regret this chubbyness;)

My fashionistas, I have been using Clinique  since I’m 15. Every time they come up with a new product in the market, I make an attempt to try on, not that I like all but this new wonder product is surely one to collect, if not more. This Super-nourishing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Sixteen natural-looking lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen.

I went for shopping yesterday like most weekends and one thing I had in my mind is to get one new shade from the new range of Chubbystick shades that they launched in this summer. What a collection! They have one for each one of us, for every types of skintone and feature. I had literally tried all 16 shades and then picked the Mega Melon pour moi. I have a fashionista friend who uses the Chunky Cherry and she looks absolutely gorgeous in that bright pinkish lip balm as she has those smooth, milky white arabian skin tone. I picked the one that I would like to see myself wearing almost all the time. Yes, you heard me- all the time! This is my 3-in-1 collection as it can be used as lip balm, as lipstick and as lip gloss. Yes, that’s right! It has the perfect moisture to prevent your lips from getting dried, it has the perfect shade to colour your lips and it is just rightly glossy to give a shine to your petals. I have taken this photo of my lips(wearing Mega Melon) with my iphone and  just when i woke up this morning, washed my face and applied this-no make-up, no base, just plain application of Chubbystick Mega Melon (notice i’m still in my sleeping tank top). Isn’t it wonder product?!

Try it, pick the one that suits your face and skintone and enjoy the chubbyness(not literally);)!!!

Paris La Belle :)

My fashionistas, It’s been almost 2 weeks I haven’t posted a blog, reason being I have been taken ill, I’m asked to rest for a while, hence, no going out and no dressing up. Out of boredom, I was browsing some photos from my previous holidays in different destinations. These photos taken in the most romantic city on earth-Paris, have struck me as I don’t have this cute little yellow frilled summer dress in my collection any longer as i put my wardrobe on SALE from time to time and last winter a friend bought it from me. I bought it from a sunday flea market in Wembley, London, where i live since 4 years now. My  cute butterfly hair clips are from Accessorize , I have worn a golden beaded neck piece cross-shoulder wise to add a bit of jinx in this cute-bubbly look, my bag is inspired by Paris Hilton that I bought from an independent store at Oxford Street, London, how I love the gathering of thousands of golden buttons in a cream leather bag, it weighs more than 2 kgs that made it impossible to carry in my International holidays after this one. My slip-on is really cheap and i picked it up from a flea market in Chandni Chowk, Dhaka. By now, you all know how I love to accessorize my look with bits and pieces from here and there, I have worn these bangles from Primark so many times with so many different outfits. They are very cool, made of wood and aluminium steel. My anklets are picked up from a tiny jewellery store near my under grad college in New Delhi, India. It was the month of September- I remember it was my 2010 birthday gift- a trip to Paris, thus, you all know we need to carry a light cardigan or summer jacket just in case it is very windy or starts getting cold-ish in the evening. I was carrying this white waterfall cardigan (which was big en vogue those days) from Jane Norman, unfortunately I do not have a close-up of the back of this cardigan, it has nice and nifty crochet work at the back. And it’s so light that you won’t even feel you are wearing a cover-up and thank God I was carrying it with me, else I wouldn’t have been allowed to go inside Notre Dame Cathedral in my bare arms;) My sunglasses are really really cheap ( i said it;), i picked them from Marks & Spencer . This pretty sky blue umbrella with a lace border was a gift from my Chinese teacher for topping  the class.It’s my fave.

Lime yellow is such a refreshing colour for summer. Try it, enjoy it and look belle in it!!!
