OOTD – Monochrome Diaries!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 27th March 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another outfit. It is suddenly so hot here that it freaks me out to think how much hotter it’s going to get. Well, as you all may know by now, I’m a savvy online shopper and love to find amazing pieces at the comfort of my own home (in pyjamas of course!) and a few of my favourite sites to shop from are StalkBuyLove, FabAlley, 20Dresses and StyleTag. They sell ridiculously cool pieces at decent prices and it is always convenient to have your stuff delivered right where you live.

This outfit is inspired by monochrome, so much monochrome that I’ve seen on the runways, on the streets, in the glossies et al. I love how black and white looks chic and spells class. The top I’m wearing is actually an off-shoulder bodysuit. I’ve been obsessed with leotards lately as they stay where they belong and don’t bunch up on the sides. The striped maxi skirt with a slit adds a little something extra to the look but the black hat is my favourite part of the outfit! I love how the orange lips bring a pop to the otherwise monochrome theme going on. Here are the pictures :

My Go To Smokey Eyes And Bright Lips

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 22nd March 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m the kind of person who enjoys full-on makeup! Thankfully, I have been blessed with clear skin so I have nothing to hide but I absolutely love artfully done and well applied makeup. Think smokey eyes + bright lips all together! It may not be everyone’s cup of tea since people like to go a bit muted on the lip when doing a heavy eye. I say, bring it on!

This is my go-to smokey eye makeup. Its bronze, its gold, its brown, its gorgeous! I can do this look anywhere with anything that I am wearing and be confident that my makeup looks fantastic. When I don’t know what I want to do or when I have to glam up in a hurry, this is the look I always gravitate towards.

Here are the pictures :

Massive Shoe Haul!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 22nd March 2015

Hello everyone!

If you know me at all, it would come as no surprise to you that I’m CRAZY about shoes! And I don’t just buy them one at a time, when I visit a store or look at websites, I hardly splurge on one! I can never convince myself that one would be enough. I am almost running out of space to keep these gorgeous pieces but, who cares right? I will just spread them out and sleep on them instead! Not that that would be particularly comfortable but considering how I am going, I may not have any other option soon! 😛

Let’s begin! –

1. Metallic Gold Pointed Pumps from Zara – Rs. 2990/-

Shoe2

Metallic shoes are everywhere! I have spotted them on the red carpet many times and spent hours searching for them online. The ones I found where either glittery or studded and not quite what I wanted. Then one fine day, I was strolling through my local Zara and BAM! They weren’t available in my size which was a big bad bummer so I requested them to find one in my size because I was not leaving the store without them! So they called somewhere and asked me to wait for 10 minutes which I happily did while drooling over the other shoes there. Then I tried them on and it was truly a Eureka moment! We were destined to be together, the rest is history! 🙂 I think you can still find them in Zara!

2. Knee-High Gladiator Sandals from Koovs – Rs. 4000/-

Shoe1

This is another love story! I had been looking for the perfect pair of knee high gladiator sandals in India but failed to spot one.They were only available on international websites like lolashoetique with a bomb of a shipping cost to India. I found these on Koovs but they were Rs. 4000/- and I was sceptical to pay that price. Then one morning, Koovs sent me an email saying they had a 30% off on shoes only between 12-2 pm and I think you can guess the first thing I did! I scored them at 2800/- and for that price, these stunning beauties are a total steal! I got the perfect size and they fit my legs like they were made for me! They’re by the brand No Doubt and are still available on the website but for Rs. 4000/-

Now I’m going to show you the shoes I got from StyleTag. It is an amazing website to find great deals on bags, clothes and shoes. All the ones that I’m going to show you were between 1400-2000 but I got them at a sweet deal of 70% off so I only ended up paying around 650 for each pair! Yes, I know I’m a savvy online shopper! <Makes Cool Girl Expression> They texted me the coupon code and the deal was only applicable for a few hours. You can subscribe to them to receive messages and emails for the current deals and they almost always have at least 30% on the entire website.

3. Studded Black Pumps from StyleTag

Shoe8

These look navy with the flash but they’re black in real life. They’re sturdy and comfortable and great quality for the price that I paid.

4. Strappy Black Peep Toes from StyleTag

Shoe10

These are also very black in real life and are surprisingly very comfortable since they lock your foot in the shoe!

5. Strappy Orange Pumps from StyleTag

Shoe11

Also very comfortable! The straps form an “X” in front of the foot and add to the comfort factor by holding the foot so you don’t fall out of your shoe.

6. Mesh Insert Red Pumps from StyleTag

Shoe9

The heel height is only around 3.5 inches which is my most comfortable heel height. I love how the black mesh gives a peek-a-boo effect. It shows some skin, yet it doesn’t!

7. Brown Studded Peep Toe Booties from StyleTag

Shoe7

Again, the most comfortable heel height! They’re tan, they’re studded! I’m in love!

This is all I got from StyleTag, the rest of the shoes are from Stilettos in Sarojini Nagar. Since I’m a “privileged customer”, I get a 10% off my entire purchase including fresh stock items. These shoes touched my heart and I just couldn’t resist!

 8. Leopard Print Suede Pumps from Stilettos – Rs. 1499/-

Shoe13

I am absolutely obsessed with animal print. Leopard print, zebra print, tiger print, snake print, crocodile print et al but leopard print is my ultimate favourite! These pumps were love at first sight.

9. Zebra Print Suede Pumps from Stilettos – Rs. 1499/-

Shoe12

Again, love at first sight!

10. Pink Block Heeled Pumps With Gold Accents from Stilettos – Rs. 1699/-

Shoe14

They look purple under the flash but they’re hot pink in reality. I love the little gold accent on the sides. It gives the shoes a little extra something. Also, the bubblegum pink bottom sole is adorable!

11. Blue Peep Toe Pumps With Gold Accents – Rs. 1399/-

Shoe15

Loving the little gold leaf accent at the back which looks especially sexy as you walk!

This is it for my insane shoe haul but there’s more! I also went to Forever21 and bought 4 boots! They were having an end of season sale and by now you know that I just have no control when it comes to shoes! 😛 I’m going to show them in another post which is going to be a Forever21 haul so stay tuned.

Also, visit the “Everyday Outfits” category to see these in action. I have a ton of new outfits coming up!

OOTD – Animal Instinct!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 15th March 2015

Hello everyone,

It is majorly weird that March is so chilly here in New Delhi. Usually around this time, we want to douse ourselves in icy water to save us from getting baked in the sun! That is why it is almost unbelievable that it is still blazer weather.

This outfit is definitely appropriate for this confusing climate as the jacket can be taken off for a more breathable outfit during the day while the boots keep my feet warm. I love how the soft khaki high waisted pants complement the earthy browns in my leotard and jacket without being too loud. Also, I love leotards or bodysuits (whatever you call them) as they stay nicely tucked in without bunching up on the sides.

What’s In My March 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 13th March 2015

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived on Wednesday and it was a bag full of surprises! Some great and some average. It was a little pink pouch with black text printed on it. Not particularly my favorite bag ever but, better than the Valentine’s one for sure!

This is what it looks like :

F1

The theme this month was “Makeup For Difference”

F2

So, let’s see what I got :

1. Palladio Herbal Lipstick – Rosey Plum

F6

Fab Bag has sent me three frosty lipsticks now and I’m really not a glittery lipstick lover. The shade is very rosey oxblood that would look great on slightly mature women with wheatish skin tone. I prefer my lips to be bright, bold and matte. So, this is definitely going to be gifted to an aunt.

F7

2. Soultree Kajal – Grey Glow

F5

This is a soft natural kohl that would be perfect for creating smokey looks since it can be easily be smudged. I wouldn’t count on the lasting power of it though. Grey kohls tend to make me look weak and tired so I usually skip on them and opt for my trusty blacks and browns but it is always great to have smudge-able soft kajals in various colours.

3. Inveda BB Cream – Fair

F3

This is a sweet little handy BB cream to throw in your overnight bag. It gives sheer coverage with a natural finish and would be great to use on days when you have no time for a full face of makeup and you just want to look fresh and dewy.

4. Sebastian Volupt Spray

F4

I have always wanted to try Sebastian styling products but never got around to it. I have used a shampoo and conditioner from their professional range and really liked those so it was a pleasant surprise to receive something from this brand. Also, I have fine hair so a volumising spray is always welcome!

5. Fashionography Bracelet – With Love

F8

I was looking for a dainty arrow bracelet and Fab Bag read my mind! This is a beautiful, delicate bracelet with a little heart charm that is perfect to wear during the day as well as night.

Here is what I got overall :

F9

I am satisfied with the products in this month’s bag as the combined value well exceeds the amount you pay for a single bag. The lipstick is going to an aunt and the kohl is something I would use only rarely. Other than those, I’m excited to try the Sebastian spray and the BB cream. The bracelet was also a very cute add-on.

What’s In My February 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 8th March 2015

Hello everyone,

I know, I know I’m late with this post! My February Fab Bag came well after Valentine’s Day because I had renewed my subscription mid February. And now, the March one is about to come and I hope I receive that in time to do my next post.

Anyway, the bag was a little black heart this time :

F1

Mine was a little dirty and bent out of shape and I much prefer the pouch style bags they send out normally!

The theme for this month was of course Valentine’s Day :

F2

Here are the products :

1. Sally Hansen Nail Lacquer

F4

I’m excited to wear this polish. It is a soft brown nude shade that is right up my alley as nudes are my favorite shades to wear on my nails.

2. LA Splash Lip Couture – Forbidden

F7

I was so excited about this product but it is really hard to work with! I’m glad they didn’t send me a red one though because I’ve already received three red lipsticks from Fab Bag. It dries completely matte and stays on like paint. But, if you purse your lips together when it is wet, it becomes blochy and is almost impossible to fix! Other than that, the color is to die for!

3. Kama Mridul Soap Free Cleanser & Brightening Ayurvedic Night Cream

F3

I am a little meh about this product. As always, I don’t like receiving skin care in my bag unless it’s a clay mask! But, I’ll try it and see how it fares.

4. Livon Moroccan Silk Serum

F5

I’m usually dicey about Livon serums and I use my trusty Loreal Professional ones but surprisingly, I’m very happy with this one. it detangles wet hair amazingly well and smoothens frizzy hair too. This is a good quantity for a sample size.

Here is what I received overall :

F6

This month’s Fab Bag was average. Nothing too bad, nothing too special. The Livon serum was a nice little add-on and the lipstick is absolutely budge proof. I’m also happy with the simple polish and I’ll have to try the skin care to see how it fares.

You can subscribe to FabBag here :  http://www.fabbag.com/

Cost :

– Rs. 599/- for a one-time box

– Rs. 1,499/- for a 3 month subscription

– Rs. 2,699/- for a half yearly subscription

– Rs. 4,799/- for an annual subscription.
