Because Mother's know the best

Days when I absolutely nothing to wear I turn to my beloved abode of Maxis. I probably have a new add on every month. They are really my favorite and go to pieces in the wardrobe. I'm the kind of person when it comes to personal style that likes to flaunt a little skin here and there so when my mum got his maxi custom made I was like who is going to wear these curtains. Yes, those were my initial words to mum. Which is what mother dear took upon as a challenge and asked me to let her style this one post.

I share the most beautiful relation with my mother that shall have endless memories to each garment.We share a lot of our wardrobe 

"Shh! Trust me, pet
Mother knows best
Mother knows best
Listen to your mother
It's a scary world out there"
Recall these lines from one of the finest Disney movies yet?

So my mum had made me this button down shirt maxi, and after all the years of having it, I  asked my mum to finally take the task.I have literally dreaded to wear the dress for so long thinking of ways to style it.And out of nowhere, we thought the dress deserved a fair chance and well we kinda did it. This was shot in 15 minutes flat hair done expertly by Sanky in the driveway of course. Also if you know my bong mother she is big on flowers/plants everything real or fake - Which I completely endorse in this post.
I have so many exciting posts lined up, hope you are enjoying reading this and can take up some style inspirations for your everyday styles.
See you real soon XOxo 💋













So here the pictures of a very quickly styled post by my mother in cue with the location and footwear which I absolutely love. I have come to become a loyal fan to Truffle shows they really do make extremely comfortable heels. Let me know what do you think of the post?

The Midi Tuck

I know of a time when I absolutely detested Midi and would get my mother to shorten anything-skirts, pants, denim. Come full circle and now I can't have enough of the midi trend. Midi skirts can be a little difficult to wear, especially if you haven’t found the right one for you but Like I speak for any other garment I say for the midi skirts too. One has to find their own pearl in the sea of choices especially with the length of the skirt. Today on Blog I'm exploring Amydus' s new collection -paring their Navy Print Chain Detail Cold Shoulder Top along with cotton blend & spandex.


With a tucked-in waist and body-accentuating shape, the midi skirt should be flattering length everyone, but the tiniest of styling deets can often get in the way of ace-ing this midi trend.
The right shoe can make your outfit and break the outfit and I've paired mine with midi block heels from Truffle Collection. The pointed toe not only adds length but is absolutely comfortable to wear throughout the day. I can visibly wear the outfit for work to hanging out with my ladies.

Choosing the unexpected  Prints to pair with the skirt is a good choice.
The cold shoulder top is a statement-making choice and is the perfect counterpoint to dreary monsoon days in Mumbai when paired with this skirt's lenght.




The gold chain detail makes our accessory look absolutely useless. One top and you are ready to work it! I would pair this with my Denim and Formal pants too! As for the skirt, I 'm working on more ways to show you the pairing probably in a later post.








Amydus has the most wearable collection available fulfilling your every day needs to formal & leisure wear. So if you are looking for your go to store for finds, Amydus is here for you. They have free shipping above 3 grand!
Stay Glued for the best in plus size fashion in India and let me know what do you think of this post, please?
Lovingly yours

Citrus Squeeze Lovin'

Today's blog post is the story of Us-Me,sanky and all the beings we find during our shoot!
We have Mr.B.Doggo and Ms. Pupper to give us the sweetest company during our time at the beach.
Cut to 5:45 a.m. We have ensured we hit every damn club within the stretch of Morjim to Candolim that night, bid all of our favorite bouncers a sweet good morning and practically driven back clueless (pantless too in Sanky's case) to our hostel. This little getaway was the first holiday we as a team took in years known to us. It's always been professional duties whenever we have traveled across the country. Needless to say, we wanted to make the best use of our time here. So here we are sleep deprived of the past 52 hours, sweating it ours on sea catch, tequilas and of course the most Lit cocktails the ever friendly bars of Goa had to offer.
My eyes are extremely puffy and my contacts well almost dissolved but here we are doing another blog post. I had to share every little but behind this shoot. The pictures wouldn't do nay justice without my muffin top  showing through or my extreme club myself the lovely creature we met at the beach(sans the creepy uncles in undies).



Albeit everything I start posing and look who decide to join us!






 


We had the toughest but also had a blast shooting this look.Which I have almost forgotten to credit for. The dress is thrift -an expensive but a beautiful find from the Goa markets, I'm sure you are pretty sure over my obsession with the H& M bikini by now, Earring by Eristona-doesn't everybody loves a good squeeze(get the title of the blog now?)



And my favorite companion by Forever 21. My hair's been braided into French plaits by sanky and  Nyx Moroccan slapped generously on my lips cheeks too! The only thing other than the lipstick is my Maybelline eyeliner-ignore my cockeyed pictures though.The contacts did really dissolve!









until Next time......

The Sorority Lives of 60's


I enjoy being a girl! And my wish would really be to live every day of the week in a new decade. I find the old musings, music , women, hardships they faced very endearing. If I could only time travels. Dressing up and having the liberty to write your own blog gives you that freedom, to say the least. Today my love for the bygone era continues-I flirt with the 60's reimagining what a sorority would I be in or what would I dress up as. Can we style the pieces today as we could wear them in the MODs?  I often question myself-Plus size fashion has evolved in recent years, leaving many fat fashion enthusiasts grateful but how did women shimmy back in the thigh-grazing straight fit dresses or Was it just a norm just for the straight sized women?



I'm wearing my last inch high neck dress with bell sleeves paired with a pastel mauve hue of stockings and T-straps oxford heels. My hair is pulled into a carefree updo bringing attention to my eyes-Played up with shades of blue family.Wearing NYX's Matte Lipcream in Amsterdam.

Lastly, I had like to Dedicate this song to my lovely ladies reading this.




I'm a girl, and by me that's only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.

I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place.
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy,
Like a filly who is ready for the race!

When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a girl!

When men say I'm cute and funny
And my teeth aren't teeth, but pearl,

I just lap it up like honey

Take Back The Beach ft. Vajor


Hello my unicorn peeps,

I, like every other millennial of this generation, dreams upon a dream vacay every 2 months really! Besides feeling insane on a holiday I really feel like I have my S*** pulled together. Well, I managed a quick extended vacay to Goa. Thank you for amazing response on my instatories, I read all your replies and spoke to most of you darlings.
if I can manage to take one moment today I know from my own experience that one has to allow for insecurity, mixed emotions, and even outright negative feelings. Expecting to make the switch from self-loathing to total, unblemished self-love as obstructive — sophistry in a different form.


Ariel Winters really inspired me to Dwell in the movement and well this beautiful post is absolutely upfront. You can read the full interview here http://www.refinery29.com/2017/05/156417/ariel-winter-body-confidence-interview

Not apologizing for my rack, not for being dirty in sand or just how messy my hair is.
I loved every moment of being on the beach, absolutely having no regrets to love myself.

I paired my Turuoise Lace Kimono cover-up from Vajor with tie up cami and fun polka dotted shorts, the whole idea was to have fun while you are at it. The cover-up is not just for beaches but for places. I wore it o lounge at clubs and can't wait to pair it up with some boot cut denim and slinky cami with longer chains for day brunches. I love the tangerine color and how well the fringe matches my hair.Shop the look here.










Would be sharing more from escapades, watch out this space for more.And Let me know how do you like the post?
See you soon
XOxo

Skirting Norms

one needs to really step outside their comfort zone to experiment and well enjoy the fruits of what's coming their way! I'm more of a dress person than another attire really. There's  almost everything have tried except playsuits. Skirt were a big part of my earlier wardrobe but for some reason I had stopped wearing them. Well the whole conversation of Indian mums asking you to wear spanx or shorts underneath(I'm sure most of you can relate) just irks me. I really don't want 100 things on the floor when I have to pee outside! well I'm trying to track my way back to skirts..starting of with this full length skirt from Femella.
Tulle skirts always are a head turning piece  ,needless to say if you have bought one well  go bold and have fun with your styling!  I went for a girly glam look with a the cutest cold shoulder blouse from Marks & Spencer .This look is ready for a shopping date and happy hour with my bouys!”
Find the skirt volume that you are comfortable with.   Tulle skirts come in different volumes.  Some plus size women aren't comfortable with pieces that are going to add volume to their bodies. If you are worried about this then you want to look for a skirt that has only a few layers of tulle.  The Rose pink tulle skirt has a minimum amount of volume.  Now for those of us that love the theatrics of it all and don't mind adding volume, a more voluminous skirt would probably suit us best.  This skirt from Femella has  the right kind of volume when you want to wear it on an everyday basis.

Work-It


It has been established that we have a problem, not only in our own country but it is really a global problem. The belief that because you're a unequivocal size or certain image, one's not  worthy of any kind of fashion. You couldn't possibly look "seasoned" in more up to date pieces. I know plenty of petite girls who struggle to find clothing that not only fit them, but that looks good. 

With summer just around the corner, we’re all currently on the lookout for the perfect component that ticks both the boxes of beach and office wear. This is when we usually turn to the shirt dress. With a perfect balance between smart and casual, it’s a must-have for any girl this summer-I know now you may ask the dilemma of online shopping. Darling over the years I've understood what gems one can find while thrift shopping and online finds. These are really my go-to places to shop. So while I have the disadvantage of not having options to shop last minute I have to plan everything before. Being organized and planning definitely has a lot more perks than you can imagine. Scout for thrift finds on the most unusual picks (friends of your closet).
Coming to work wear, I have the advantage to be in a profession where I could possibly wear anything till it abides the decorum. But when it comes to other ladies -most of us winning at corporate lives, we want our options to be open. Online shopping is a boon when one knows their sizes perfectly and with the advent of new websites dedicated to plus size wear, it's a winning streak. Calae has the perfect options available in various blends of work and leisure wear. The dress I'm wearing in this post is perfect for Friday Dressing. 







The shirtdress is a great addition to your wardrobe with collars and seams that can fold to your comfort. The hemline hits right at my knee which makes it a comfort worthy to wear anywhere really. I paired mine with metallic oxfords from Wanderlust and acrylic studs from Eristona.
                                                          



 You can pair with a blazer and comfortable shoes in the morning and pack some heels with you for cocktails in the evening. So gone are the days of bringing another set of change with you to the work, and find your favorite staple at Calae instead!



My hair was done up by my bestie Sanky ( you can catch all the BTS on my Instastory) and makeup was a very refreshing summer colours by Chetan Karkhanis. Sans any liner and tons of lashes makes it so much more doable. I wore a creamy lipstick after ages thanks to Chetan. How do you like my look and what would you wear the shirtdress with?
Hugs my darlings
