Dressing Trendy Without Spending A Penny

If you ask me I'm not someone who is super-trendy, and I am especially not the first one to jump on to new trends.

However, if I like a particular fashion trend, the first thing I try to do is look in to my ever-expanding wardrobe to see if I have any item to create the so-called trendy look, without having to spend any real money on the same. And this is what happened when I wanted to try out the oh-so-popular trend of wearing longer shirts over tops/tees and jeans. Now dusters are also a rage currently, and I do have a bohemian floor length kaftan/kimono style duster, but I was more interested in the mid-length shirt/buttoned tunic sort of a look. So after rummaging through my closet, I came across this striped dress, which can actually be worn multiple ways, thanks to the buttoned front. So after pulling this little number out of my closet I quickly picked out one of my favourite (and also fairly old) blue/white tops. I paired my blue skinny jeans with the top and the tunic/dress and voila...I created an outfit that was/is trendy without spending even a penny. So I encourage you guys to go through your existing clothes in order to recreate a trend without blindly heading to the shops to buy those "trendy" pieces.

BTW, if you have seen my Turkey Look-Books, you would know that I had worn this striped blue dress in magical Cappadocia.

Celebrity Style Inspiration || Miranda Kerr || 3 Outfits

Celebrity street style serves as a major source of fashion inspiration for me, and TBH, I can spend hours looking at outfit photos of my favourite celebrities, and more often than not, the thought that comes to my mind is that I could put similar, if not same, outfits together.

So working on this very thought, I recreated 3 looks inspired by Miranda Kerr's street style. She has got a stunning sense of style and I've never come across a photo of hers where she looks anything less than gorgeous!

Please watch the video to see the looks that I came up with, and please leave a comment stating which look was your favourite.

OOTD & Try-On Fashion Haul || KOOVS & Zara

Stripes are a classic in their own right and I really feel that one can't have enough stripe-y items in their wardrobe. At least I feel that whenever I shop, I subconsciously gravitate towards stripes- and that's the reason I bought two striped maxi dresses (and a lot more) from the recent online Koovs Sale. I've also included a beautiful white cape that I bought from Zara fairly recently.

The one in the first photo is pretty much a classic black-white striped maxi, but the bohemian maxi (photo 2) is the one which is my absolute favourite, and that's because I'm not the only one who loves this colourful number, it seems Kareena Kapoor and I have similar taste when it comes to 'fashion'. She was spotted wearing the same maxi on Saif's birthday. And wait for it, just when you thought Kareena and I had only this maxi dress in common, there's another maxi that we both own, but to know which maxi is that you'll have watch the video. ;)

BTW, I also picked up a few kimonos which I'm sure all you kimono fans would love.

Denim Vest LookBook || 5 Different Outfits

I don't know why I didn't share this sooner on my blog, but they say better late than never- right? So today I'm going to profess my love for the "denim vest". Now don't get me wrong, I haven't always had a thing for denim vests, in fact to be honest, I only have one denim vest in my wardrobe and that's also a fairly recent addition- but boy do I love the versatility of this piece.

I bought my denim dress from here, and ever since I bought it, I have worn it once every week if not everyday. From teaming it up with maxi dresses to sporting it over a pair of jeans, this little piece of clothing has been worn multiple ways.

Have a look at this video to see how I wore my denim vest with five different outfits. Please let me know which outfit did you like the best. :)

Fair & Lovely's New Powder Cream: A One-Stop Solution for Smooth, Matte and Bright Skin

Who doesn't want fresh, smooth and radiant skin, but achieving that in this humid fest seems like a distant dream. Whether you are a college student, a working woman or a stay-at-home mom, fresh, radiant skin is something every woman wants- because when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good you do your best.

Well, fret not as I have just the right product for you. It is Fair and Lovely's new Powder Cream which turns from cream to powder in a matter of minutes, and ensures that you have smooth, matte and bright skin for 14 long hours!

I recently attended the launch of Fair & Lovely's new Powder Cream and was glad to know that FAL had come up with a one-stop solution for all the greasiness and oiliness that is associated with the application of face creams. Because who doesn't want fresh, smooth skin all day long!

The launch event was super-fun with a ton of exciting games and surprises, and it was lovely to be pampered by the Fair & Lovely Team. We spent the entire day chatting about beauty and skincare, playing games and interacting with like-minded beauty and fashion bloggers.

The whole group
During the course of the event, I also got the opportunity to test out Fair & Lovely's Powder Cream, which I must say is great for everyday use- just apply a pea size quantity of this magic formula and you'll  be good to go!

The product claims that it provides:
·         Instant Bright Look
·         Powder Smooth Finish
·         All Day Oil Control
·         Matte, Non-Oily Feel

I think a cream like this is excellent for everyday use since not only does it turn to powder after application, it also ensures that your face looks bright and radiant all day long. And in case you want to wear make-up, this Powder Cream will provide excellent base for your foundation and ensure that your foundation doesn't melt away.

The icing on the cake, however, is that this #FALPowderCream is priced at INR 115/- for 40 gm, making it pocket friendly. So now you do not have to burn a hole in your pocket in order to look fresh and radiant all day long. #SetLookAllDay

How cute is this cupcake?

Another exciting news is that I will be hosting a giveaway very soon so make sure you have joined me on Instagram and Facebook.

Now coming on to the outfit that I wore to this product launch event, I knew I wanted to be comfortable in my dressing since the event spanned the whole day. So I chose a simple denim dress- I love the fact that the dress is so comfy, yet stylish at the same time. I also wore a statement necklace (which is not visible in this photo), and some pearl studs. My footwear of choice was leather flats, and I carried my Louis Vuitton Galliera which pulled the whole look together.
