It’s December and planning for Christmas party is in full swing. I can’t believe where did the time go? I am very excited for Christmas, the parties, get-togethers, spending quality time with family and friends, the secret Santa surprises, the glittery Christmas tree, sharing gifts and carols in the air! Furthermore, along with splurging on presents and decorations, it’s also time to think about what to wear to parties. Are you ready? If not and you need to get your party style sorted, then this is the blog for you! Here are a few easy-to-achieve ideas that might inspire you.

It’s time for some swanky and festive fashion ideas for the Christmas season. So here are my few Christmas Party Looks; whether it’s a fancy Christmas party night or Christmas lunch!

Look 1

This shift style red dress is such a classic shape and makes it a refined and timeless look. This shape and cut is so flattering as it really clinches on your waist and then kicks out making your waist look not only smaller, but also it hides the bulges in the tummy area – surely a win-win!

Look 2

While red might be the color of the moment, green is still enjoying its fashion resurgence. Don’t forget about red’s faithful companion: green, this Christmas! Paired green palazzo with white bell sleeves top for an elegant and contemporary look.

Look 3

Add some staple pieces from your wardrobe and still have a festive outfit on your hands. For a more casual look, team it up with scarves, wraps, and shawls; the easiest way to achieve a party outfit and look stylish and chic! I always have an element in my look that is minimal and classic and makes the whole get-up look clean and put together.

Look 4

This next look is so feminine and fabulous, the lace dress is a perfect option for a romantic look. Wear it with the right accessories, hairstyle, and a flawless makeup!

Look 5

I adore this look; ideal for a Christmas evening or a Christmas lunch in the city. This skirt gives a flattering shape and is perfect for all body types, the top I teamed with it is so versatile, perfect for matching with any skirts, or it would look equally chic if worn with some black pants and stilettos! 

Look 6

There is no doubt that this season culottes are having a big moment in the fashion world. These stylish pants are so versatile and give a flawlessly flattering shape to the body and allow an array of possibilities to wear them. At first, it can be tricky to style culottes but once u nail the look you will be wondering how you ever lived without them. They make a great travel staple and currently have replaced my stack of straight pants, denim, and trousers! 

Culottes make an outfit look perfect, be it a casual day out, lunch date, formal meeting, or last-minute dinner plans this style doesn’t fail to impress! And are available in various patterns, and lengths. If you are too scared of the prints try a monotone pair to ease into this style. You can style them with a crop top, any solid color top, cold shoulder top, blouses, boxy tops, sweater, jacket, options are endless! For petite girl’s vertical culottes is apt as it creates the illusion of height.

Wearing burgundy solid top + flared culottes, that I recently shopped from one of my favorite online site Missamore. One thing I loved about this brand is the unique style of their outfits which make you look just ‘perfect’ for any occasion.  I am loving their collection and definitely, goanna go back to #MISSA MORE and shop as much as I can.

GET YOUR SKIN READY FOR WINTER

botanical-beauty

botanical-beauty.jpg

Winter is here and I personally love this season. Sipping steaming cups of tea, snacking on dry fruits, and cuddling up in warm blankets: winter has its own charm! But unfortunately, winter season, however, has its drawback too. It’s that time of the year where I need to take little extra care to ensure a glowing and a healthy skin.

Winter brings extreme skin dryness, leaving it flaky. It makes the skin vulnerable to lose its moisture and henceforth requires hydration. Staying hydrated is the key mantra to get rid of all skin problems! Trust me water plays a major role. It is hard to deny that my body feels better when I am especially good at getting my eight glasses of water every day. The most natural way to get a glowing, cheerful and healthy skin is by having an ample amount of water!

We are aware of hundreds of mainstream beauty products available in the market that promise to offer glowing skin in winter. And yes, some of them might stick to their promise but observe that the glow attained by using those affluent products won’t last long. Besides, there would be some hidden damage to the skin for sure, which an individual might realize later. Consequently, some commercial beauty products might give the desired result in a short span of time but may cause long-term impairment to the skin. So, instead of opting for such affluent beauty products, why not try the following home remedies for a healthy and a hydrated skin? All you need is a few ingredients from your kitchen, and you’re good to go!

Here are 5 home remedies for glowing skin in winters

Honey

 

 

Lemon-and-honey-are-great-for-improving-the-quality-of-your-skin

Honey is excellent for the skin when taken internally and externally. Honey is loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and healing compounds.

Apply one teaspoon of honey and massage the skin daily. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash. Pat dry and you will see that not only is your skin softer but also glowing!
Also, you can mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 1 tablespoon of rose water and apply this pack on the face for 10 minutes and wash. This will make your skin moisturized and toned!

Coconut oil

Why-You-Should-Start-Eating-Coconut-Oil-and-These-4-Superfoods.jpg

Coconut oil is excellent not only for cooking but works wonders for the skin as well! It is rich in antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antioxidant properties. Also, acts as a perfect skin moisturizer and been used since ages for beauty and health benefits. Coconut oil helps in cleansing, moisturizing, removing makeup, healing wounds or scars faster, and also prevents razor burns.

Mix coconut oil with olive oil and apply this mixture all over your face daily at bedtime to lighten facial blemishes. This also prevents your skin from getting overly dry in the winters.

Glycerin

Glycerin-Rose-Water-Lemon-Juice-Pack

Mix glycerin, lemon juice and rose water in equal proportion and apply it to face and body and leave it overnight.

Glycerin maintains the moisture in your skin and resolves the dryness problem during winter.

Papaya & Banana Mask

Papaya-Banana-And-Honey.jpg

Papayas are known to contain anti-oxidants while bananas are rich in vitamins and also act as an anti-aging agent. It is the easiest and fastest home remedy for dry skin in winter.

Prepare a paste with ripe papaya and banana and add 1 tablespoon of honey to the mixture and apply it on your skin and get the glowing skin in the winters.

Oatmeal Pack

avižų-pienas.jpg

Oatmeal is amazing for sensitive, allergy or eczema prone skin as it is overloaded with anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, skin healing and itch-relieving benefits. Oatmeal is a healthy food and a treat for your skin too!

Take 2 to 3 tablespoons of oatmeal and add 2 tablespoons of lukewarm full cream milk (can increase the amount of milk to get the desired consistency of the pack) and soak it for 5 minutes. Apply this mixture to your skin for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse off with water. Repeat this process 2 to 3 times a week. It makes your skin clean and glowing.

Get your hands on these natural remedies regularly and say goodbye to the flaky, dry and itchy skin this winter.

REVAMPING!!

REVAMPING!!

IMG_3179

Do you find your closet full of pieces which are boring to wear, or tough to discard your old but favorite outfits because it’s no more in fashion?  If you want your clothes to look fresh, new and unique, and not ready to pay for new clothes all the time, then how about adding a handmade touch and revamp or embellish what you already have?

At Perky Pockets, we have decided to revamp old and boring into something new, trendy and stylish. Perky Pockets is the perfect space for you if you love handcrafted masterpieces and for those who would like to get their favorite old outfits upcycled!

I’ve grown quite fond of stepping into my mom’s wardrobe and perusing through the different items in her closet. I’ve been able to style few of my mom’s clothes in a modern, on-trend way. Mom’s silk sarees will always remain the most graceful pieces of clothing one can own! Recently, I have used my mom-in-law’s saree to revamp it into a maxi dress. Yes, you heard it right. So, instead of discarding your old sarees and other attires you can twirl them into vivacious modern outfits. Isn’t that amazing??? If you wish to experiment a bit more with your old clothes, then you can even get palazzo pants, kaftans, flowy capes, scarves and much more stitched out of it! Contemporary fashion allows you to experiment endlessly.

Sooner or later, you can make almost every conceivable outfit out of your old saree. So, go ahead and get snipping.

Reviving Childhood Fashion Staples!!

IMG_2819.PNGThe current fashion trend is flooded with reminiscences of the 90’s! I’m a big fan of dungarees since childhood, Dungarees are back into the catwalk at runways, celebrity closet and are a street style staple. I personally adore dungarees as the level of comfort is raised to infinity whenever I am in them! Dungarees bring about the old school vibe like none other!

Dungarees have some fascinating history which I found while doing a little research on my outfit today. I’m thrilled to share!!

In the17th century, dungarees were first mentioned in a dockside village named “Dongri” located in Mumbai. In Hindi, it was called as “dungri”. For manufacturing purposes, it was exported to England where Englishmen began to call dungri as “dungaree’’. Originally dungarees were used as protective clothing by farmers, slaves, and laborers. They became popular amongst workers as they were durable and inexpensive and for the same reason carried a stigma of low status. However, this trend gradually changed when women began wearing dungarees during the First World War as it was the perfect outfit for those working in factories and needed protective clothing like men. They appeared back in fashion in the 40’s and 50’s initially with children wear and since then, dungarees have been quite eminent and IN and OUT of fashion.

Oh! I am wearing dungarees sourced from stalkbuylove, with a simple yellow tee, paired with white sneakers!
