This is how I styled my outfit for Chainsmokers Concert

When I knew that I was going for the Chainsmokers concert, I knew that I had to wear something great.

I wanted to wear a typical concert kinda clothing, yet without doubt something that would reflect my personal style.

After hours of trial and testing,I was satisfied with what I came up.

In this blog,I will tell you all how I brought together my entire look.

I chose to wear my Forever 21 black tshirt dress,which has a lace border at the hem,for the event.

Black is the best colour to go for,if you aren’t up for any experimenting.

 If you want to stand out amongst the crowd, I suggest you  opt for a fresh colour.Bright colours,pastel shades or mild tones like nude or cream can be your options.

Next,I paired up my tshirt dress with a pair of fishnet stockings.I did this to give an edge to my look. 

Fishnet stockings are totally in right now, and they let you dress up a plain dress or your ripped denims.

Finally,the most important part of my outfit.Shoes.

I decided to experiment and go for a fresh colour instead of the regular white or metallic shoes.Since my outfit was black,I paired it up with mint shoes. 

Mint is definitely something everyone should consider because  they go with almost all outfits,if you know how to pair them effortlessly.

The only thing that went wrong for me was that my shoes were a size smaller.I did a mistake of wearing them for the first time in the concert itself.

So, I ended up holding my shoes in hand the whole night and dancing bare feet.Not that I am complaining about that.😁

Make sure that you buy the right size of shoes and wear it atleast once before the main event. 

That’s it.Enjoy your next concert! Live while you are young!

Our Symphony

via Daily Prompt: Symphony

 

“I dig you damn it!”, I remember you had grabbed my upper arm, and had yelled at me exasperated.

“I like you too “, I had blurted out.

Then after few years, when you had popped the question, I remember our battle.

“Do you really want to marry me?  I am warning you. I am a mess and loving me won’t be easy.”, I had whispered, though deep down I knew I would do anything to make us work.

“It is too late. I am irrevocably in love with you.Marry me.”, you had said with so much intensity, that it was easy for me to lock my doubts in a box and throw the key away.

Then came the worst.Or that is what I thought.

“Shit! We are too young.How could we be so careless?!” I had pounded your chest and pushed you across the room.

“We are in this together, doll.We will get through this” You had tried pacifying me by   putting on a brave face , when you were seconds away from cacking your pants.

And from there on, I realised that we were always in it together. We shared our roses and thorns.

So, today, after growing old together, as I lay my head on your chest and listen to your heart beat, I realise that it resembles a symphony. A symphony which is slowly fading , just like the white lilies on our kitchen table.And at this moment, I wish nothing but to be a part of your symphony.

Our symphony.

How I style my Vintage Blue Midi dress

 

IMG_2998

I particularly remember coming across this dress and instantly falling in love with it. I picked this outfit from a store, which had piles of export dresses. In a room full of fabrics, this was the one outfit that I could not keep down.

It is a British button through blue midi dress. The fabric used to make the dress is called seersucker, which is light in weight and is perfect for summers or day time outings. The dress also flaunts minute floral patterns which give the dress a nice ‘young’look.It has a prominent summery and vintage vibe to it.

I remember how the first time I got into the dress, I felt like I had time travelled to the Victorian era and was an elite young lady, waiting for her wagon to take her to wherever her heart desires. Wishful thinking, right?

But a girl can always dream:)

Back to the dress, I admit that it was an impulsive buy. It was only when I bought this piece home , that I realised that I need to style my dress the right away to make it look effortless.

So, here are a few tips I would give if you are considering to flaunt a midi dress look:

  1. Buying is the easy part

You don’t agree with me? Well you should try buying a perfect outfit, only to find that its sleeves are a bit too floppy and dangly, and the dress does not hug your curves like you want it to.

So, the first thing I did after buying my dress,  was having a dress fitting at home and figuring out the measurements. Once I had the measurements, I rushed to my tailor and got it altered.

A shopping tip I abide by, if you fall in love with a piece but don’t find your size, grab a size or two bigger. And then just let your tailor work his magic!

  1. Accessorizing  the dress

If you are going for a simple dress, add a belt or some chunky silver jewellery to accentuate the dress. Just make sure that you don’t overdo it and pair the right accessory with the dress.You can also pair up the dress with a bomber jacket or a leather jacket and go for a rugged look.

I chose my tan belt with a cute bow at its center, to give make sure that the dress does not look too boxy and hugs by body perfectly.

  1. Ditch your boring shoes

As they say, “People make shoe contact before eye contact.”  When it comes to picking a pair for a midi dress, the best options are pointed heels, heel pumps or the classic boots.

To make a statement, wear a pair of bright shoes.

  1. Going bold with the lipstick

Don’t shy away from flaunting bold lips!

I chose a purple stain to go with my light blue midi dress. It turned out perfect as the purple stain gave the entire look more edge.

  1. Specs Appeal

Geek is indeed the new chic. Add some frames to the picture, and you are good to go.

I finished my look by adding my favourite pair of golden framed glasses.

That’s all for now. Stay awesome and keep it dressy!

Shooing away the monotony

Are you questioning your existence more often?Do you spend every waking hour in self loathing and self pity?Do you spend hours dreaming about a happier life?
Wonder what has struck you?
You are simply a victim of monotony.
We all have our own fair amount of days where we are doomed by monotony.

Firstly,we need to understand  that it is okay.Not everyone of us can have a perfect life,like those Instagram personalities ,whose life seems to be a vacation on its own.*sigh*Wishful thinking.

The cure?Be reckless.Trust me, sometimes it is the ultimate hack to make things right,to make you forget and to bring back the spark in your life.Unless you are ready to waste your time waiting for some new hot dude or a girl like how the sappy sagas tell you,to spice up your monotonous story.If that is the case then all I can say is may the wait be worthwhile.
But for all the wise ones,what you truly need is to feel alive.Maybe again or maybe for the first time.

You need to feel that pumped up adrenaline rush which hits you so hard that it leaves you dizzy for hours.Do something so spontaneous and so uncalled for that your yesterday’s self would never even dare think about it in their wildest dream.
It can be any random thing you always wanted to do and which was in your bucket list,feeling deprived of your attention.

Wanted to always go on a solo trip to the mysterious country of Mongolia?Do it.Go watch a movie alone in theatre,learn a new language you have never heard of,shop till you drop,call a random number and just start a conversation and the list is endless.Do everything and anything to make your soul happy.
For once,think beyond the boundaries which society has thrust upon us.
Live.Love.Explore.Discover yourself and discover world.

Be like Nike.Just do it! 🙂
