I am so so sorry for being M.I.A. from this blogging world. Well, a lot has been brewing up lately, and I assure you that you all are going to love the outcome. Stay tuned for that! But for now, to get back on the blogging scenario, I was getting an itch to do an outfit post. Currently most of my days go out playing a *professional*. And by that I mean wearing a lot of (Semi) formal outfits. When it comes to dressing up seriously, people usually opt for a very boring color palette of muted shades of grey and monochromes. Well, the question is… how to break this mundane way of dressing? You can always opt for some pop of color in terms of a fancy scarf, or statement earrings or a sun-kissed handbag. Well, I tried thinking on the same lines and incorporated a combination of muted colors wedded to some serious bling. And by bling, I mean gold bling.  Keeping my quirky style up, and matching up to my professional field… I had to infuse in some *trend*. Since the last year or two, I have seen some serious involvement of the Owl print and the Mustache print! Thanks to Masaba, now we have the *lipstick* and camera print too. Since finding trendy accessories is a tough call, I thought of D.I.Y. – ing my own! My verdict (on semi – formal dressing) :  1. Keep it basic, but stylish. 2. If you don’t have a lady gaga moment, play on the lines of sober colors. (Something other than monochromes) 3. Keep your silhouette comfortable. Don’t let it loose and baggy, nor try to look seductive! 4. Play double safe with accessories which are pleasing in a concrete professional environment. Have you seen those cinema scenes, …

Look Good in  Myntra Originals #LookGood With the power of internet taking it’s toll globally, almost everything is getting possible in the virtual world. Take for instance, the latest obsession (for some) *Online Shopping*. Surprisingly, the Indian market is also getting virtual, with many an e-commerce websites making successful relationship with the citizens. Every other day, I see bloggers and citizens ordering products online. Be it fashion, beauty and lifestyle. Earlier all we use to hear about was Ebay and Amazon, which were out of Indian citizen’s reach. But now, we have various portals with defined shopping categories. I, personally don’t prefer virtual shopping. For me it’s all about the feel, the real look and the wearability of a product that matters. Not to forget the excuse we get to step out of the house, have some fun with friends, enjoy shopping together, and even sip a coffee in the end. 😉 Although, a lot of fashion websites give you the option of *Trying* the clothes first, and then buying… I am still a believer of the former! Now, when I got a chance to browse through the collection of Myntra Originals, I might have altered my opinion about virtual shopping a bit. I can say that, Myntra.com is one of the those few Indian e-commerce websites, that provide you highly fashionable apparels and accessories, and are still decent on the budget. My shopping experience browsing through the collection of  Myntra.com Originals 1. Current trends can be visible in the apparel section. Eg. peplums, monochrome stripes, floral prints,etc. 2. Vast variety of apparel types, from party gowns to casual western wear, and ethnic wear. 3. The size chart is quite accurate, if you know how to measure yours. 4. The photographs justify the real look and feel of the product, …
