Cropped Mickey Sweatshirt with Pencil Skirt

Hello Chicas,

How have you all been? I had an amazing weekend or should I say a mini vacation with the extended national holidays. :D I indulged in some sale shopping, went for Dolly ki Dolly which has a hilarious first half, but a weak story-line and pretty boring songs!

Anyways, coming to the OOTD, the Mickey mouse sweatshirt is the center of attraction of today's outfit. Now who doesn't love Disney? I mean we all have grown up watching Mickey, Mini, Donald duck and oh, I can go on and on. And there is nothing better than getting to wear your favorite childhood cartoon characters, right? I personally totally adore such stuffs and never miss a chance of getting hold of them. This cropped sweatshirt does total justice to the pleasant cold weather been experienced in Calcutta these days. And the fact that it is cropped is another factor I love it so much. I'm so not over the crop top phase, you know. :D

I have paired the sweatshirt with a cobalt pencil skirt of a midi length. I have added a neon pink clutch along with white wedgies which has these really cool spikes on it. And pink pout to complete the look.

Red Tux Jacket with Monochrome Joggers

Hello Chicas,

Firstly, thank you all for your wonderful wishes on my last post. Those sweet words were really encouraging, keep them coming. :)

Winters are at full swing in Calcutta these days and it's the best time to flaunt those long jackets and booties. I'm totally enjoying the cold spell with homemade delicacies by  dearest mommy and shopping online under the blanket.

Coming to today's outfit; I have styled a red tux jacket from Dorothy Perkins which I recently purchased from Jabong. So happy to see international labels finally available online in India. As the tux jacket looked more formal, I have added a monochrome jogger pant to make it a more fun and casual outfit. I hate winters for the monotonous blazers and jackets which I try to make it more lively by pairing them up with printed or colorful bottoms. I'm obsessed with jogger pants these days, they are so comfy that I can actually sleep in it. Apart from the comfort factor, they come in a wide variety so you can style it as per the occasion.

Accessory wise, I have added a red clutch and ankle length suede boots. Also, some arm and ring party to pep up the look.

Plaid And Denim

Hello Chicas,

I am really excited today to share my first outfit post on my very own blog.
Plaid has been one of the most celebrated trends during fall and was huge during the 90’s and now it’s back with a bang. Celebrities  across the world from Taylor Swift to our very own b-town beauty Sonakshi Sinha has been spotted rocking this trend. There are numerous ways to wear plaid from flirty pleated skirts to shirts for a more grunge look. One of the most common ways to style a plaid shirt is tying it around your waist. Well that also helps in hiding cellulite, remember Sonakshi in "keeda" and "desi kalakar" songs where she smartly tied the plaid shirt around her waist to camouflage those thunder thighs. 

I have paired a warm plaid flannel shirt with a high waist denim skirt. Now this acid wash denim skirt comes with suspenders which makes it a denim overall outfit. The best part about the skirt is that the suspenders are detachable and hence can be styled in various ways. 

There was not much room to accessorize so I have just added a studded envelope clutch which happens to be the most abused purse in my wardrobe. And yellow suede booties to add a pop of color. Another fun part about dressing up in winters are hats. From bowler's hat to berets, these pieces are a staple in one's winter wardrobe. And that's how I finished my look by adding a warm bowler's hat.
