6 bags for the summer

April 12, 2017

I don’t know about you, but I’m all for summer fashion. Bright colours, crisp whites, gladiators showing off brown skin and a fresh pedicure, glorious bohemian jewelry and of course the perfect summer statement bag. Before a season begins, I usually have an aesthetic in mind, and typically, I’m having boho luxe ambitions with lots of bardot, embroidery and florals (duh!). Also typically, I’m dreaming of 70s inspired corporate chic in the form of flare pants with pussy-bow tops and long line vests, bold power pantsuits and flowy dresses with structured blazers on top. I also want pearl embellished boyfriend jeans which I will be DIYing asap. Most people think about the beach and vacations when it comes to summer, I think about the glorious outfit possibilities and how many of them I can pull off without getting a heat stroke (hi from Dubai!). But getting back to bags here’s a little sneak peek into my Shopbop wish list.

  1. Cult Gaia Acrylic Ark Bag: Ok confession, I just purchased this as soon as the Shopbop sale went live. I know it’s still the blogger It bag of the moment and while the brown wood version seems super popular, I’m in love with this dark acrylic version. I plan to wear this with dark floral dresses and minimal monochrome outfits that just need red lipstick as a finishing touch. I’m so excited!
  2. Cleobella Twain Small Satchel: The perfect beach companion that immediately has me thinking about how great this bag would look as a crossbody while I’m sipping on some fresh tender coconut water. I really need a vacation.
  3. Sam Edelman Chiara Top Handle Satchel: I feel like this would be the perfect bag to take me from work to a fancy sushi dinner with the girls. It’s chic, structured, comes in the perfect shade of blue and it’s affordable.
  4. Rebecca Minkoff Chase Medium Saddle Bag: I love the size, shape and the braids and tassels, talk about boho perfection *heart eyes emoji*
  5. Foley + Corinna Mini Brittany Satchel: This is my idea of the perfect everyday bag, I know some people prefer big bags for everyday wear but I hate dragging around something that seems to contain the entire kingdom of Narnia since every time I go fishing in it for my keys, I lose at least 20 minutes of my precious life ( I’m 30 now, my minutes matter). This is a nice neutral that will go with every outfit and leave me hands-free for when I accidentally come across a Zara sale.
  6. Milly Single Box Clutch: Tell me this isn’t the perfect party bag, I dare you.

Chambray High-Low Shirt Dress

April 5, 2017

It’s kind of a big deal to me that there are now plus size clothing options in India. Our culture is not fat friendly at all but it’s cool to see our generation changing that. There are Indian plus size bloggers like Ameena, Aashna, and Meenu and I’m wearing a dress from an Indian plus size brand called Last Inch in this post.

So, let’s discuss this dress from Last Inch. I’ve always wanted a denim shirt dress but this exceeded my expectations because of it’s high- low hem which looks almost peacock-like and it has pockets! The quality is fab, it’s not too lightweight but not too heavy for summer. I’m wearing a size 20 UK here and I think I could have sized down to an 18 (honestly, this could be me though- I have been fitting into more size 18 clothing lately).

The only con about this dress is that I wish they had added two more buttons at the bottom, I had to stitch this part up so as to avoid flashing way too much leg ( or even more). I am 5’7 and I think the length of the dress is perfect for me.

Last Inch’s shipping was super quick as well and I think their website has quite a few trendy options. I also have this gorgeous navy dress ( here’s a pic of me wearing it on my instagram) and I love it just as much- great quality, fit and length.
