Weekend fun

Hello lovelies
so on Saturday i went to dharavi to watch an installation put up by artists from new york inspired by the people of dharavi. It was just about okay as it lacked the connection you need to make. But dharavi was intriguing as always. I wore my new purple chunni and churidaar with my trust old black kurta.
On sunday, i went for a bandra tree walk with my friend gitanjali at 8 am!! dressed in my zara pants and tee with my pretty ballerinas and matching bag. it was fun! now back to work :)

A little bit of skin goes a long way

this top i bought at a great sale at vero moda and it made perfect sense to wear it for our meeting with the sula guys. It's formal but also so pretty!

All set for Dhobi Ghat

dress from vero moda (they have a great this for only 700, shoes from gossip, bag from mango

star earrings from kazo
So i went to watch Dhobi ghat in this dress that i feel will be great for all curvy woman. It gives us a waist and hides the flaws, don't you think. Great slimming shape for everyone. As for the movie, Prateik rocked for his innocent portrayal, monica for her natural feel, and just everything about dhobi ghat was so subdued and calm that it was a treat to watch. Go and watch it guys

dressed for a read meet!

So i went to caferati's read meet, armed sheepishly with a short story. I thought i should look pretty as well, maybe some votes will swing my way ;) i decided to be casual yet slightly dressy. Hence the shredded sleep top that i bought at a sale for just Rs 300 again. It's perfect for curvy women like me because it takes away focus from my love handles...or does it. I really think it does :). paired with a dark pair of jeans that slims me down and a necklace i have fallen in love with, and my brand new ballerinas...i think it works well. Hwat do you think, my gorgeous friends!
points to be noted:
1. DARK jeans work well with rounded figures. They make your butt look sexy and yet toned down.
2. Tops with embellishments at the right places take focus away from problem areas!
