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?

Mangoes, ice cream, staying indoors, and rising temperatures are telltale signs that summer is here and yellow as a color certainly adds that much-needed summer announcement to your closet! If there is one essential that needs to be in your wardrobe for summer, it’s the maxi dress. Whenever I have to get ready to head out, the easiest choice for me is to pick out a maxi dress and team it up with some statement jewelry or go one step further and accessorize with a lovely pair of heels. Boom! I’m ready to slay any party with hardly any effort.

Have you spotted this gorgeous color popping up everywhere? I am a sucker for yellow, so here today I am wearing a yummy yellow summer screamer maxi dress. I love how this dress is versatile and can be used for simple days out as well as an occasion that needs dressing up. Moreover, they not only look good but also help stay cool through summer. Keeping the look simple and all eyes on yellow, I paired up this dress with a gold neck-piece, tassels earrings, and flats.

Before I leave for my party, I would like to remind you to decide the length of the dress before you go ahead and buy it. The length of the dress just below the ankle, nearly touching your feet (neither too short nor too long) is dainty, feminine and easy to walk without tripping too. That’s my go-to length. But check your height before you go shopping since long dresses could make short girls look stocky and very tall girls look lanky.

If you’re comfortable and are able to walk without grabbing a handful of the fabric in your hands, you’re all set!

My affection for Indian wear knows no boundaries and you’ll always find me attracted towards it in the slightest of ways; whether it’s teaming up jhumkas with my western outfits or add a desi touch with bindi or mojris. It’s a cultured elegance that certainly boosts the outfit tenfold.

A house of textiles, India has always been known for its culture and crafts. Kalamkari is one such form of craft which includes freehand drawing and block printing on cotton fabrics derived from Persian words. Characteristically named after the technique of its making, ”qalam” denoting pen and ”kari” signifying craftsmanship, Kalamkari has been ubiquitous in numerous parts of Southern India, primarily in Andhra Pradesh. This art makes use of only natural colors or vegetable dyes which makes it unique!

Several Indian fashion designers are using kalamkari recurrently in their fashion week runways; the latest trend that seems to have caught the attention of fashionistas is the Buddha print. Fashion enthusiasts seem to be well-tuned to the fact that the Buddha need not be detained for being a statue in the lounge, but can be fashionably sported on dresses, sarees, jackets, or kurtas too.

I particularly love the way contemporary Indian wear binds traditional silhouettes with edgy styles and that’s exactly what I am wearing from my own label Perky Pockets. This outfit is an amalgamation of trendy style with alluring Indian print and design, sure to turn some heads!

Keeping the look simple and the attention focused on Buddha print, I paired up this dress with silver jhumkas and nude heels.

Perky Pockets offers you outfits using the finest fabrics. We have a lot of striking and amazing clothes, if you like them, wish to customize a dress, top, kurta and more… or just want to get to know them, get in touch with us on Facebook or Instagram.

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

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.
