#MadeInSummer

MY OOTD: Top Quizclothing UK | Shorts Quizclothing UK | Shoes River Island | Sunglasses Zalora | Handbag Bershka | Body Chain Asos

July is finally here, and that means its time for some exciting summer time travels. My next stop is London and I am extremely excited to be going back to the beautiful city. However this time it’s going to be a quick and short trip unfortunately as there are many stops to make across Europe too.

This co-ord set from Quiz Clothing is from their Made in Summer collection and it is absolutely gorgeous! I just couldn’t resist the temptation to blog it now over wearing It first time at a scenic beach resort destination. I highly recommend all my fashionista’s planning a holiday to head over to the Quick Clothing UK site ASAP and have a look at their summer collection.

I’ve accessorized my outfit with a pair of Zalora shades. The shades nicely compliment the pinkish orange flowers on the co-ord set. I’ve topped of the outfit with my classic carton shaped milk bag and am ready for my summer time parties!

Rainbow of Colours of Prom Dresses

 Image by Gary Lerude via Flickr

Back in the day, there was pop-culture movement sweeping the nation: colour analysis, and its inevitable offshoot, colour pyschology. I've always believed that each person has set template of colours that suit them best and that help enhance the tone of their skin. The first book to compartmentalize people in their best-suited colours was Carole Jackson's 1980 runaway best-selling book: Color Me Beautiful. Jackson used a seasonal template, men included in this analysis for all seasons. 

With 6 months to go till my wedding, I know I will be using Carole Jackson's template to help me find the most suitable colours that will accentuate my tanned skin tone for my bridal outfits. This post is a bit different to my usual posts, but that's because I wanted to share my thoughts on what a huge factor colour tones play in your overall look, and guide you into choosing the right dress that will best compliment your skin tone.

Even today's beauty advice-gurus draw from this long-held assertion that you can determine which colour is best for you to wear, based on one thing: the undertones of your skin.

Here's how you do it per www.thefashionspot.com

Look at the underside of your wrist.
What colour are your veins?
Blue or Purple? You're cool-toned.
Green or Yellow cast? You're warm-toned.

Surprisingly simple, no? Now you can look for prom dresses/evening dresses with this in mind.

Cool-Toned Colours
White
Black
Royal Blue
Navy
Grey
Metallic-Silver

Warm-Toned Colours
Burnt Orange
Cream
Sunny Yellow
Brown/Heathered Brown
Dark Leafy Green
Red Maple Leaf
Taupe
Camel
Metallic: Rose Gold

Cross-Over Colours
Don't forget about different colour shades too. For instance: Red is not just red. It's considered a "crossover" colour. Warm-red has an orange cast (therefore, for warm tones), and cool-red had a blye tone (for cool tones). The same applies to the two other crossover colours, green and pink.

Universal
The Universal colour (yes, there is one) plum - looks good on both cool- and warm- undertones.

A Plum Choice
Since plum has been identified as the universal colour, I searched the web in the appropiate colour and for styles to flatter different body shapes.
The Universal Homer: This dress by La Femme Style (17004) is not only stunning but can hide a multitude of sins, if you don't mind catching the eye of every guy. The ruched bodice can enhance a smaller bust, yet contain a substantial one, and the flow-y skirts covers belly, body and thigh imperfections. Cost USD $318.

Best Bargain! I love the sweetheart neckline and heavily embellished bodice. The flouncy, spin-worthy chiffon skirt makes this dress suitable for all body shapes. Cost $178

Fringe Benefits


MY OOTD: Top TshirtPolicyLondon | Skirt Missguided | Boots River Island | Choker Asos | Bag Céline | Sunglasses Quay Australia | Belt Missguided

Looking for some eye-catching Tees?

Tshirtpolicylondon is well known for their quirky styled t-shirts with funky slogans and ethnic hipster designs. I love this chic black tee they have sent me through blogger mail, the heart-shaped hand decorated with with henna is an epic print since it totally relates to my personality and second love…. Raving with EDM!

I sported this tee with a suede fringe skirt from Missguided. I am obsessed with fringing! Fringes on clothes or accessories have this magic power of transforming a simple look to ultra-chic and versatile. I am so grateful that fringing is back in fashion this year, now I can drape myself with fringed and tasseled anything! Fringes are versatile, and don't always have to look boho - they can also be styled to look sophisticated.

Floral Ties

MY OOTD: Sweat Top StalkBuyLove | Skirt Missguided | Bag Maison du Posh | Shoes Asos | Necklace Missguided | Sunglasses Quay Australia

I just received a stunning sweat top from “StalkBuyLove”, it has a chilled out and casual laid back vibe to the look, yet the floral detailing of the backside tie-up gives it a very classy finish.

I emphasized the tops casual-come-classy feel by pairing it with a khaki suede skirt, pink heels and this chic knucklebuster clutch to turn this whole combination into a sophisticated dress to impress.

Sparkle in Quiz Clothing

MY OOTD: Maxi Dress Quiz Clothing | Shoes Asos | Earcuff River Island

Summer is coming…..and the season for occasion dresses is upon us, whether it is for a wedding or just for a catch-up over high tea or saying goodbye to school!
For this look I have collaborated with Quiz Clothing to share some inspiration on looking fabulous at any occasion this season. Quiz Clothing does some stunning sparkly sequin embellished dresses, this pastel pink sequins maxi dress is one of their eye catching numbers from their collection. Minimal accessories with this dress as it carries enough of personality to hold its own.
However I always like to experiment with the unusual and voila, I could think of no better way than to accessorize the outfit than with this gorgeous earcuff I picked up from River Island!

The Urban Crush

MY OOTD: Top StalkBuyLove | Jeans Asos | Bandana Thrift Shop | Bag M2Malletier | Shoes Asos | Sunglasses Asos

For this look I have collaborated with StalkBuyLove an online Indian style and fashion retail space. I received this stunning white mesh top from them that not only is of fantastic quality but also comes at a very reasonable price! By now from my blog you must have figured out that white is one of my favorite colours, I love the simplicity and freshness of white and not to mention it’s always easy to match it with any outfit. 

Over here I have accessorized with my favorite bandana trend and finally got the M2Malletier bag I've been dreaming about for a year now that nicely compliments the look. This M2Malletier red python skin bag is an absolute beauty; the exotic leather bag was really hard to get my hands on but as always with fashion where there is will there is always a way to a stylish solution!

Bandana Obsessed

MY OOTD: Crop Sweater Topshop (out of stock) | Jeans Topshop | Scarf Zara | Shoes Asos | Sunglasses Spitfire | Bag Chloé | Earrings Lu Lu Guinness

I'm kinda bored with accessorizing with statement necklaces, and currently in love with this effortlessly cool way of accessorizing my neck with a western twist! Spotting this trend on the New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer runway, designers; Coach, Cynthia Rowley and Wes Gordon all have the same thinking to bring back this 90s staple. I caved in too, and am obsessed with this trend!

Yes I know it looks cowboyish and western, but this 90s trend is making a major come back this Spring! Even Hermés has redesigned their iconic square scarves in a bandana style! If you all do decide to sport this trend too, please tag me on instagram so I can see how you have styled this trend too!

I'm a bit heartbroken, lost this scarf few days ago on a night out - so this blog post is an ode to this bandana print scarf from Zara.

White Hot in Jaipur

MY OOTD: Top Missguided | Skirt Missguided | Necklace Newlook | Shoes Asos | Sunglasses Asos

I don’t normally post my outfit shots taken from my Iphone since I am quite particular about the quality of the images that I publish online (ofcourse!), but in this case I received such an overwhelming response that I had to make a blogception (blogger mandated exception).
For this shoot I was in India for a family wedding, the top and skirt are from Missguided; I’m not really a fan of boob tube tops as I feel too bare so I always opt to accessorize it with a stylish chunky necklace.
