It could be the fact that I am missing the bygone holidays so much, that I chose to put up my pre new year outfit! Sniff 😛 It is one time of the year when no one bats an eyelid even if you are swathed in bling, which would have been fun but unfortunately I did not resort to such extreme measures. 🙂 I did wear a sequined top to ring the new year in, paired with a pseudo smokey eye – which is when you have no idea how to do a smokey eye but try anyway 😛 Yay to that! 😉
I bought a sequin-what-was-i-thinking- top as an impulse buy and ended up quietly ignoring it’s presence in my wardrobe. I used to tell my self I would wear it when the occasion arose and guess what, it conveniently never came 😛 So finally I decided I needed to wear this top even if it meant looking like a disco ball… hell if not in NYC where else..;) Thankfully the disaster was averted because the jacket and sober shoes helped tone the outfit down..;) So fellow folks who have sleeping sequins… Its time to break those out and celebrate:D
With Christmas/ New year around the corner, you probably have a flurry of parties lined up in the coming weeks:) Time to temporarily stow away the “dark” clothes and pull on some sparkly threads. But carrying off a “all out” bling outfit might be intimidating for some of us which is why I have pulled together some inspiration. Irrespective of what you wear, make sure you put on that dazzling smile and you will be just fine 🙂 Wishing all of you a very very happy holiday! 😀 1. Neutrals+texture+ Sequinned collar2. Sequins+plaid3. Sequins+ sharp tailoring4. A touch of sequins5. Sequins+Neutral sweater+ black tights6. Sequin blouse+ Leather7. A pair of sequinned tights for the brave 🙂8. A sequin jacket when you want to go all out 🙂9. Or if all fails, pull on a sweet little sequinned bow 🙂
Feeling green? Consider yourself ahead of the fashion curve;) Pantone just announced “EMERALD” to be the color of the season…. Little surprise there considering how much love we showered on mint over spring summer! 😀 I personally love the deep shade of green, it flatters most skin tones and hence I most certainly approve 🙂 which make me want to ask – would emerald be as much as an “it” color as last year’s pantone shade Tangerine? If the below pictures are any indication, it probably will 🙂
The “collar” is having a moment now, the peter pan in particular! Embellished, printed, leather, Lace, attached, large, small you name it, it’s around 🙂 I bought a couple of peter pan collar blouses, albeit apprehensively, and I am glad I did! They are cute, fun and girly and you certainly need to be no Alexa Chung to carry this off! I just might continue wearing them long after this trend dies!I think went “awww” for about 2 mins after I came across this mani! Adorable:)
Just two days to go for the Marni x H&M collection to hit the shelves. Aren’t we all overtly delighted? The entire line up looks very fantastic, very Marni and very drool worthy. ( I am looking at you faux leather+knit blouse) While I don’t stand a chance of scoring any of the goodies, thanks to my lack of determination to queue up, I will summon all my internet skills( if there is such a thing :P) to try and buy my favorite item! Their sequinned peter pan collar! I know its a long shot, but common a girl can at least wish right?
