Shirt : Ed Hardy
Shorts: Forvever 21
Flip flops: Gift

I visited an awesome place last weekend by the name of Sea Paradise.As the name suggests, it has all to do with marine life. There were shows,water rides ,and huge aquariums with wierdest of creatures! 

So as far as my outfit goes I wanted to keep it as simple and  comfortable as possible .I wore these beautiful high waisted suede shorts in bottle green color and paired it up with a smart casual top.I threw in a vibrant yellow belt to add some drama.For a more cool and sporty vibe, I decided to go with Aviator sunglasses and funky flip flops with metallic detailing.Topped it off with a nice cap and loads of sunscreen .

I leave you with some pictures I clicked.

"When in doubt,wear red" - Bill Blass

Red dress ,red shoes and a bright red lipstick might sound too over the top ! Its not halloween and no one wants to be dressed as a little red riding hood:P Girls are usually intimidated with bright red lipsticks and so was I for a long time but honestly, till we don't try how would we ever know if it's suiting us or not? So I went ahead and decided to experiment and my efforts didn't go vain. It was decent enough to be posted here on my blog :p Just conceal your facial imperfections,blemishes and dark circles and wear it .You might surprise yourself :)

I wore a red dress similar to the shade of my lipstick. Overall , it turned out to be quite a glamorous look with a short dress, high heel wedges, open hair pinned to one side, and a clutch bag with metallic detailing.

I'd love to hear your feedback in the comments section below.

Perfect office wear :Look of the day

Skirt: Zara, Tokyo.Japan
Shirt: Ruffled shirt, shibuya 109, Tokyo ,Japan
Stilettoes: Carlton London, Gurgaon, India
Clutch bag: Debenhams,Gurgaon, India

Lipstick : Maybelline 022
Highlighter : Mac Light over Dark Mineralize Blush

When I first came to tokyo I was pleasantly surprised to see how well dressed people here were. What shocked me all the more was that how could working women of all ages manage to look so perfect from head to toe each morning when I could barely open my eyes.I still don't have the answer. 

Inspired by them, I created this look ideal for office wear , job interviews and other professional meetings. I got into my favorite ruffled shirt and paired it up with a high waist green skirt .For a more polished and professional look, I tied my hair into a pony tail ,wore a nude lipstick and slipped into my plain black stilettos. I used a golden highlighter on my cheeks to add a touch of dewiness.Vibrants colors and big pieces of jewelry can be distracting so avoid.

Offices can be chilly at times with the air conditioners operating as very low temperatures so why not throw on a blazer. It adds more sophistication and style. 

Being well dressed at work creates a professional and competent image and speaks volumes about your  ability to do your job.

Right outfit , wrong location : OOTD at Forbidden City,Beijing

This was in Beijing a couple a months back at a famous tourist spot by the name of Forbidden City. I was never so enthusiastic about posting this outfit maybe coz these pictures never excited me too much . Still I decided to post them coz I absolutely love this high waist skirt and top.I just feel that they don't go well with the occasion of sight seeing and touristy stuff which demands a more casual and comfortable outfit. I initially wore another cottony pink dress I bought from Forever 21 but to my horror it was quite transparent.

I'd rather wear this outfit to a nice restaurant or team it up with a ruffled shirt and wear on a more formal occasion.

The skirt has a thick black elastic band on the sides which holds the waist tight and gives and illusion of a much thinner waist.The top has these pretty frills on the shoulders which sets it apart from the usual white tops and gives an ultra feminine feel to it.For my hair, I wrapped a long piece of cloth with wire inside to ease twisting and gripping of the hair. This 1 min hairdo,I believe looks different and more eyecatching than the usual tying or braiding of hair .

My next post would declare the winner of my giveaway. It's coming out really soon so stay tuned!
