How I Get Ready For A South Asian Wedding Event

giphy8

I open my closet and start pulling out outfits that make me look like Priyanka Chopra in my head…cuz you know ain’t nobody like a desi girl.

giphy

It’s time to game plan. There are different types of outfits one can wear when going to a South Asian wedding event. If I know the bride/groom personally, then you best know that I’ll be rocking that lehenga or glitzy saree. If I’m a plus one for my parents (yes, it’s a thing), then I’ll taper the look down in a kameez or a glam saree.

giphy6

Once I’ve chosen at least 3 outfits as options, I’m going to start taking MySpace-esque mirror selfies to see which one looks the bombdotcom…because….hello Instagram?

giphy1

…and I’ll send them to my most trusted squad members….because the squad has to approve right? Also, they’ll most likely tell me if I’m too scandalous #noscandalizedauntieszone

giphy10

Outfit done. Time to get my makeup on. Popular to contrary belief, I rarely know what makeup look I’m going for. Almost always, I’ll pick the lipstick I want to use and base my whole look around that.

giphy2

Daaang, makeup did. Now to get my hair did…cue the Beyonce playlist now…#feelingmyself.

giphy3

Hair did. Face beat. Now for the bling. For me, it’s all about the glitz…because I’m that extra.

giphy4

Time to Instagram…it’s about that #OOTD life.

And now I’m ready to get into the car and head to the event! Peace out! See you in the next post! x

Falling in love will be your ticket to a totally different country filled with couture clothing for you and not much clothing for him because he’s worked hard on those abs.

Being abandoned on an island is no problem at all. You can survive without hunting for food or anything really…(Thanks Kaho Na Pyaar Hai for this one).

The family that prays together, eats together, stays together.

Playing Holi (google it) is SO glam. There’s no clean up or mess involved…at all.

3e2b2ea143cc6c71dc1d18ce6e159946A is killing the ripped jeans trend in this look. The bright yellow blouse and the beige shoes classify this look (lolz).

d699e737f61b796721a674d377ba533a Everyone needs an all black outfit and Anushka looks radiant in this one!

7 Times Sonam Kapoor Slayed Her Style Game 

Hello Dolls! Hope you guys are doing great! As always, I’m back with a blog post for ya today and since my previous Bollywood style post was such a hit (thank you x), I’ve decided to bring you another style icon from Bollywood. But before you go ahead and read that, make sure you’ve checked out my last blog post. Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for daily updates (also, my other socials are listed on the top of the page).

As I mentioned, this post is going to be about one of Bollywood’s most stylish actresses ever. Actually, she might be one of the most stylish actors to grace the world (there I said it). I’m talking about none other than Sonam Kapoor! If you want to know more about her, you can check out her wiki page. If we were to find a definition of what “#StyleGoals” was, it would be Sonam. Not only does this fashionista dress well, I also love how her hair and makeup are always on fleek. Below, you will find 7 of my favourite outfits Sonam has rocked (and let me make it clear, it was VERY hard to pick these because I practically love EVERYTHING she wears).

8b5fdf01593dbcc3fcb2bd94275cbd20

A plain red lehenga on paper sounds bland, but only Sonam can make this outfit look super fashion forward. Also, the matching red lips is perfect.

15e4ebeaa52124172381cbb6e4ba2f83 So, I have a soft spot for anything blush toned but this outfit is literally what I would call the perfect blush dress. Also, the heels and her hair are to die for.

315db5247566b2c66924e63f867d075cThis is something I like to wear pretty much every other day and in different colours. This one’s my fav because Sonam makes even the simplest outfit looks SO chic. Me likey.

a63ec2fcf2d9ff52568e250758df4121This has been one of my favourite gowns I have ever seen on ANY red carpet. Everything about this is perfect and I want this so I can wear it every single day (don’t judge me).

d02473e33e4229faf3be989750abcc0aThe flared pant suit can be tricky for some to pull off but this fashion icon does it effortlessly. Everything from the cut to the hair to the pointy shoes is flawless!

ec353541936f1fec7ecf1d98d30b039eAHH. GIVE ME THIS OUTFIT. RIGHT. NOW. Seriously, I’m speechless at the level of perfection here.

c5fea0ad011f521ced7ca1743b7ca497I’m a sucker for classy cutouts in a dress and THIS look here is nothing short of elegant and classy. Sonam, how do you do it!? Can we swap style brains?

See you in the next post!

kisses,

7 Times Katrina Kaif Slayed Her Style Game

Hello Dolls! Hope you’re having a lovely day! If you haven’t checked out my previous post then you can do so by clicking right here! Okay, so I just realized that I haven’t made a Bollywood post in years (OMG, I’m slacking). So I figured with 2017 in full swing, I’ll start off my first Bollywood post of this year by talking about how obsessed I am with Katrina Kaif’s style. If you don’t know who she is, then you can check out her wiki page. She’s one of the most talked about celebrity in Bollywood because of the different movie roles she chooses and her impeccable style sense. Below you will find 7 of my favourite looks Kat’s been rocking (which you can re-create too).

9d1cbaef54c7d96cdd28d6f83564418b

Seriously, only Kat can make an all black basic outfit look mysteriously gorgeous. This is exactly how one rocks casual chic.

41de1a5c2cfdc96417c51c4aac0af431

I added this look here mainly because I have rocked something similar (you can check that out here). I really love the boho chicness of this outfit.

74f37237d889dfde42710c67e7cebf94

Jeans, Louis V and a coloured leather jacket together can only create the most stylish outfit. Seriously, this is what travel style is all about.

82a8f0626351ffe33f52388dbac10851

I love the watercolour printed mini dress Katrina is rocking here. The red strappy heels really enhances this look and I want to insert all the heart emojis here.

260a0404ee310ecde17acaeb61accbdc

Something about the dressiness and the casualness of this outfit makes my heart skip a beat. I love the colour combos!

10826583dae7792dfe772faa1355b3e3

Blush toned dresses are my weaknesses. Seriously, every single person needs to own at least one piece of blush toned outfit. Also, peep the flat sandals. So simple and elegant.

ab03299c4b14dd9dff3d2f118c57ef6d

Kat looks gorgeous here. The colour combination of her shoes and dress are perfect. Also, that hair….so pretty!

See you in the next post!

kisses,
