April फूल!

April फूल! BY PERKY POCKETS

Hola people! How is everyone beating the crazy summer heat? I have switched over to cotton in my wardrobe, and melons in my diet. It stuns me how cotton, being such a lightweight and a ‘simple’ fabric, can still transcend into a strong outfit with high impact. So, today’s post is all about a floral explosion with PERKY POCKETS where I’ve experimented with fabrics and prints.

Flowers are a beautiful symbol of freshness, grace, and purity and are synonymous with spring.  Floral prints are what I naturally cleave to in all seasons but I can play around with them much more in the spring. 

There are certain trends that are practically reminiscent of summer. Floral prints are eternal, versatile and represent strong femininity, cheerfulness, and effortlessness. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and staying comfortable this summer. Floral prints definitely put me in a good mood! How about you?

I am dressed up in PERKY POCKETS with umbrella overhead, flowers for dresses, and happy smiles for make-up!

These prints are so nice that you don’t really need to accessorize. What do you think?

Tied and Dyed

PERKY POCKETS

IMG_7559.png

Summer is our favorite season – sunshine, watermelons, butterflies, the opportunity to dress ourselves in cheerful colors and brave cuts – sigh! We’re super excited to dress ourselves and you this season. Light capes, shorts, scarves, long shirts, summer dresses – all make for really cool and stylish outfits and practical too given the intense heat we are expecting this year. Tuck the blacks and greys to the back of your wardrobe and embrace every bright color there is on offer. We’re going to show you just how to style yourself and make heads turn wherever you go.

If you want to start your summer with a fun and flirty vibe, tie-dye is where you should begin! Originally from as early as 1909, the term “tied and dyed” speaks of a resist-dyeing technique that involves tying clothes and letting the dye soak in the fabric. It is vibrant, bright, loud and unapologetic and has made quite the come back this year! It is a versatile print that screams summer and is super cute on the beach, a day out with your girlfriends or even a solo trip that’s long overdue. You can wear just about any color and look cute. Pair it with a simple solid colored top and minimal accessories and you’re good to go. That’s what we love about it. It is low maintenance and can make you look quirky or cute depending on how you accessorize. 
Perky Pockets’ brave color palette includes strong splashes of color, soft pastels and eternally graceful natural tones making our summer pieces the perfect pieces to give you a wardrobe detox. Our new collection is an amalgamation of stylish and playful details such as ruffles, fancy cuffs, flattering cuts, bows and frisky prints with bright colors that will make your eyes sing! Bring in this holi with these bright beautiful skirts and dainty feminine top for example and be the talk of that Holi party at your friends’.

Game. Set. Match

Game. Set. Match

Wish you all a very happy new year!

I love how 2017 treated me both with my work and my family! I am super excited and am looking forward to 2018 with renewed energy and focus to realize all my dreams this year! The time has come to ring in the new year, so why not celebrate the night in style? Stay on trend this New Year! 

This season, I decided to trade in the classic but cliched party staples like black dresses, slinky or sequined outfits, and wear a Co-ord set from my label – Perky Pockets.

‘Co-Ords’, or two-piece sets is another 90’s revival trend. They are versatile, and it’s all about that hassle-free throw-on and go attitude when you’re in an absolute rush and can’t be fretting to pick different separates and put an outfit together!

Moving onto my OOTD, the material is absolutely amazing and the boat print is super cute and quirky. I am wearing a crop top along with a wide leg bottom. If you are a fellow print lover, this takes print appreciation entirely to a new level! If you’re edgy about wearing these same print items together, start with a solid colored one in a flattering style.

So, next time if you come across any cool print or material two-piece set, then buy it as matching sets and your co-ord will surely turn heads. This trend is all about having fun with the look, so don’t shy away from experimenting every once in a while. Co-ords are a must-have look this year so don’t be left behind! Two become one this season in the fashion game, set, and match.

You can find an amazing range of Co-ord sets, tops, dresses, maxi, and kurta-pant set in different designs at Perky Pockets and they’re affordable too!

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

img_4617.jpg

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

I am a huge fan of maxi dresses all year long! And this RED maxi is perfect for Christmas party. Maxi dresses are stylish, feminine, comfortable and elegant!

So, which one is your favorite look? I would love to hear from you!

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

CULOTTES IN MISSAMORE STYLE

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.

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!
