Of Prints & Patterns

Hey, beauties!

I have this habit of going through my old stuff, ditching my new apparels for some time and trying out the out-dated ones in a more modern way. When we were kids, my dad would always get us variety of new clothes and what was hilarious was that he wouldn’t just shop for us but also, for the future us. At that time, we had trunks full of clothes that didn’t fit us, that my sister and I planned to save for our “future” self. Funny, I know! However, it’s a lot like shopping online for yourself and still getting surprised when your order arrives or hiding few bucks in a winter jacket just so you find the same money next winter. A gift for you by you. I’m still fascinated with the idea and yes, I continue to do so even now.

While going through the same collection that I had saved when I was somewhere around the age of 12, I found this gorgeous green long skirt with the pattern you can completely get lost in for a while. I rarely wear skirts because I find them restrictive and difficult to travel in but this one, I couldn’t take off when I tried it.

My childhood memory of trying this skirt when I couldn’t fit into it and dying to grow up just so that I could fit in it is where my inspiration for this post came from. Hence, I decided to create an outfit that is vintage yet bohemian and something you can definitely wear to college.

In the outfit, I’m wearing a see-through knot crop top, white canvas shoes, a gemstone necklace as a waist belt (kamar-bandh), oxidized silver chandbalis and of course, the skirt from the past.

A fashion tip to keep in mind would be if you are not very experimental with your outfits, then pairing the apparel that has a very strong pattern with something plain would be better. In this outfit, I’ve paired my skirt with a plain top. Had I gone for something else which had patterns too, the outfit would have appeared too strong. I like keeping my outfits simple and sticking to just one statement apparel/accessory. Here, that would be my skirt.

The Perfect Jeans For Indian Girls

“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”

Hello, lovelies!

I hope all of you are doing great in life and happy with the way you are.

One thing I always feel about our generation is that it has become obsessed with trying to fit in their clothes rather than buying something that fits them.

We are a mix of all those people who are fitness conscious and health nut; a large percentage of it go for the balancing equation of consuming unhealthy food on a regular basis with the perception that the more they work out, the less guilty they’d feel about their incapability to have a strong will to stop themselves from consuming junk every single day; a combination of weak and strong-willed people who have their couch potato moments once in a while and their glorious workaholics moments as well when it comes to something that we are passionate about and impossible to be distracted from.

Most of us are the ones who never fail to convey our message about how important it is to have flavors in our food, cheese in our lives and chocolate in our desserts. In short, the foodies and then, there are the ones who neither try to work out nor choose healthy food but instead, they try to forcefully fit in the clothes they own for a very long time and more often than not, end up looking uncomfortable in whatever it is that they wear.

All are perfect but the last one. It is good to be surrounded by people who are conscious about the kind of food they are consuming, and have cheat days occasionally, on which you can eat whatever it is you have been craving for. Then, there are those who feel food is the ultimate pleasure in life and they would go on a world trip just to try out the various types of cheese around the world and a large variety of chocolate & wine that this beautiful heel of a unique planet has to offer us.

The problem comes when you encounter people who fit in the last category. When you try to pull off a look that you yourself feel is awfully uncomfortable but you go for it anyway because it’s trending and it’s in Vogue and yet, you continuously fail to find something that fits you well and make you stylish at the same time.

One thing girls need to understand is that fashion is not just about wearing skinny clothes or even very revealing clothes. I know from personal experience that almost all the girls face the issue of finding a perfect jeans for their body type in India because the fitting is just always wrong.

If the jeans fits your thighs perfectly, it will be loose from the waist area. Of it is perfect for your waist, it will be too tight for your thigh. Some are so terribly stitched that your calves start to ache if you wear them too long and the other ones are just too tight from the crotch area.

However, I have recently found a perfect solution to this one hell of a serious issue. With the vintage fashion finding its way back into our lives now, this jeans has been a boon for me since the day I have found it. I have been buying nothing but the exact same type of jeans in different styles but the type remains same.

It is the MOM JEANS.
But what is a mom jeans and how is it different from boyfriend and girlfriend jeans?

According to Pop Sugar, a mom jeans is usually high waist while the boyfriend jeans is loosely fit and a girlfriend jeans is basically just a feminine version of a boyfriend jeans in the sense that it is more fitted, better looking and made from a fabric that is more rugged.

“If you raided your mom’s closet in the ’90s, you most likely came out with a pair of the “mom jeans.” Though the style has a stigma with being unflattering and unfashionable, contemporary brands have brought them back in full force – offering destroyed washes and cropped options. When it comes to the qualities of what makes a mom jeans, the style is usually high waist, making your bum appear longer and flatter, and the zipper area has a relaxed fit.”- Pop Sugar

Why mom jeans is the perfect choice for all the girls?

No matter what your body type is, mom jeans will always and always be loyal to you and your thighs. This pair of jeans is little loose from the thigh and crotch area and the fact that it is usually high waist makes sure you not only look effortlessly stylish but also, slim and tall.

If you have slim thighs, it will still suit you very well. It will be little loose but not too loose and you will always find a size that your body can be extremely comfortable in. Not only this is the easiest pair of bottoms to pair but it is also perfect for any occasion and it never fails to bring out the feminine side of you, which I feel boyfriends jeans does not. It can be worn as a formal wear and as informal wear as well.

I’ll be posting more posts on how you can style your mom jeans soon. Till then, let’s see how it looks in the ways that I styled it.

I wore this top in three different ways to show you that how a loose top can be styled in different ways; as a knot top, as a one shoulder top and as an off-shoulder top.

Hair & Lip Care With Tvakh Products

Hello, lovelies!

Recently I got a few goodies from Tvakh, The Natural Skin Suit. I used their products and liked them so much that I decided to write a review. I got a Coffee Bean & Ginger Hair Stimulating Shampoo, Soy Protein Bodifying Hair serum and a lip balm.

The shampoo’s packaging is of great quality and there are no chances of the bottle leaking as it comes with a thin steel sheet packing around the tip. The price is reasonable and quantity, enough to last for more than two months. The consistency of the shampoo is neither too thick, nor too runny but perfect and when applied to the roots, it creates enough froth to massage the shampoo within the roots. Hence, very less quantity is required.

Even the consistency of the hair serum is perfect. Very little quanity is enough to make your hair silky. After using the shampoo and the hair serum that came with it, my hair looked really silky and felt very light. They were easy to manage and comb. It’s a must buy for those girls who have frizzy hair. Even my mom and sister used them and loved how these hair products worked on their hair.

Coming to the lip care by Tvakh, I absolutely love it. Even though it doesn’t stay on the lips for very long  but the product is really good for daily use. It came with a hint of either haldi or some other yellow powder on the top which, after I applied it on my lips, gave a shine to them.

Since all the products, including the lip care, are free of chemicals, I use this lip care as a highlighter which is also the reason why my face has that shine in the pictures. A great make up tip for all the make up lovers out there, you can use any (herbal, suggested) lip care as a highlighter if it shines a bit for daily use. It will do no harm to your skin.

Since the consistency of this one was not too thick, it looked perfect on my skin, not at all sticky. You can see how it shines on my lips and cheeks in the pictures.

The good thing about these products is that they did not have any chemicals in them so there is no side effect. The products by Tvakh can be used for long term too.

I would suggest these products to anyone who has:

  • Dry hair
  • Frizzy hair
  • Not into chemical products/liked herbal products
  • Wants affordable but good quality product
  • Wants to increase their hair length

You can get these products on their website: www.tvakhindia.com

Thank you Tvakh for sending over these goodies. I really loved them. I hope you found this review helpful. If you did, don’t forget to share it with your family and friends.
