got all dressed up and there was nowhere to go!

retro print top from promod, pants from zara, bag from lokhandwala, shoes from zara, heart necklace bought from a friend
so, my husband and i are totally broke...and so i got all dressed up but instead of going to some fancy shamcy place went to a small place called aiyangar in andheri, and sat on stools and ate that's what you call cutting cost...and deliciously at that...

the garage sale outfit

i love such tunics as they flatter our curvy figures completely. tunic from chemistry, cardigan from zara, shoes from charles and keith

dhruvi and i

love this colour!! wear colours that compliment your skin tone

And so we had a garage sale which for our first attempt went wonderfully well. Indian shoppers just have to get used to the idea of second hand clothing. Guys, we wouldn't sell anything that's not worth it! but here are some highlights and this is what i wore. I was accompanied by Dhruvi of , Samidha of and karishma of fun it was !!!

I love my new shoes

kurta from Fab India, shoes from Charles and Keith and bag from Accessorize
I went to watch Band Baaja Barat in thhis relaxed outfit. My belief is that to make an Indian outfit different, you need to pair it with western accessories. I love the way Anoushka was styled in the movie though and we will try and do some of those style on Indian summer as well. But here, i wear a classic print Fab India kurta with snake skin print gladiators and a cute bow clutch cum purse. It adds an edge to the outfit.

It's the weekend

Kurta from Good Earth, Bag from Kala Ghoda, Bangles from the street

pants from cotton world, chaps from colaba causeway

ballerinas from lokhandwala, kurta from Cotton Cottage, chunni from Cottons

I somehow always always think i look the best in Indian. On Saturday, I headed for a play to Prithvi to watch the lovely "Tumhari Amrita" so decided to be all arty, and my friend Aditi looked like a pukka theatrewali too.  And on Sunday, I went for a Dosa breakfast in my favourite yellow kurta. Trust me, it's the best attire to beat the Mumbai heat and look pretty all at the same time :), If you are in a colder part of the country, just throw a shawl on!

The curvy woman stylebook

1. I think the most important thing is to highlight your best asset. I like my shoulders so i try and wear off shoulders or strappy stuff or halters. It really puts the attention there and makes you like a stunner. Another example, i have recently discovered that my upper waist, right below by bosom is where i am the thinnest, so empire line cuts are great for me...let's find out what's your best part and we will accentuate it.
2. If you want to draw attention away from your hips or that love handle, wear attractive V necks which will flatter you.
3. Never wear stuff that is too tight or too short.
4. Avoid trends such as harem pants, vertical stripes, ruffles, pleats, balloon dresses -- they just make you look bigger.
5. Darker colours streamline the body -- I noticed a friend that day wearing tight black jeans and she look gorgeous as it highlighted her booty in such a classy way.
6. Dress well inside - a well-fitted bra and shapewear will camouflage all your problem areas and is your wardrobe and confidence staple.
7. Wear a lot of Indian wear. Our clothes have been designed to suit the Indian figure -- be it the saree or the salwar kameez.. some styles will come here soon

and above all, love your needs you too!

love lots
