Jeans on Jeans

Jeans on jeans – this is something I want to try lately. From memory, the last time I wore a jeans jacket was in 2004, and it happened to be paired with jeans (because I LIVED in jeans back then!).

So here I am, trying to come up with the complete look before I venture out to look for the pieces.

I started with the J.Crew jeans jacket, because this is the main thing I want to wear. Then I chose a simple A-line Madewell jeans skirt, for a girly feel, because the jacket I selected is in a very classic cut which I think would give a masculine aspect if paired with jean pants.

To accessorise, a simple Jadetribe pompom clutch (because I am T.O.T.A.L.L.Y in love with pompom ever since I bought one America & Beyond pompom shoulder bag from ASOS). I liked a hot pink D&G handbag and a baby pink Dior as well, but not with this look – that would have contrasted too much with the grungy style.

Then, Valentino ballerinas in nude noisette colour, so as not to steal the limelight from the handbag. I like accentuating on one item in the outfit only in terms of colour, and then keeping the rest in the same colour family – feels less cluttered, more breathing space.

The earrings are simple Carolee rose gold button earrings. In my opinion, button earrings are THE thing which make girls look so so cute! ^_^ for me, they definitely bring cuteness to any face structure, be it hot and sexy, stern, timid; button earrings just have their own charm.
That’s the only jewellery piece I would like to wear with it. No bracelet, as I might not want to roll up my sleeves. And even if I do, it’s no sin to be sparse with your jewellery.

Simple makeup as well, for the eyes and lips. Charlotte Tilbury’s cream eyeshadow in nude, and Chanel Rouge Allure lip-gloss. I would want to just apply a light stroke in my inner eye rim, to intensify the eyes, without making it seemed dolled-up with too much eyeliner.

Last accessory piece: just look at that iPhone jeans casing, cutest thing I’ve seen today, the jeans pocket with makeup brushes peeking out. I’ve actually thought of keeping makeup brushes with me in this way. Once. Long-time back.

And if you are hitting town during daylight, don’t forget your sunglasses! These ones are Linda Farrow aviator sunglasses, and I especially love the rose-gold colour.

ASOS: AH-SOS or ACE-OSS?

Turns out I (and actually all the people I know) have been living a lie all this while. I’ve been calling it Ah-sos since 2012 when I first purchased from the website. Although nothing beats the real shopping sprees for me, I adore that website for its free shipping, yipeee !

Then, I came across a Cosmopolitan article by Danielle Tullo, who sheds some light on how the actual ASOS people call their business, and voilà, it’s: ACE-OSS!

So you see? We’re always learning new things, and getting our minds blown everywhere.

That was about the phonetics, grammar and all literature I could give you on ASOS for today. Let’s move to the pictures below now.

I wanted to show all you dazzlers my outfit for the fashion/makeup show I went to last Saturday, spoken about in my previous post Adornment.

I was in black, because that’s the classiest colour I know of, and I L.O.V.E it. That’s a Yumi black jumpsuit pictured, in a very comfy light woven fabric, and a pretty embossed lace bodice. I especially loved the large pants.

I added a pair of Carla Berotti black high heels sandals with AB crystals, to stay in the same tone, but with some sparkles. And sky blue nail polish in Avon’s Arctic Waters.

And since we obviously cannot not accessorise, I added splash of colours to the outfit from my Cara NY earrings, bracelet and an America & Beyond cross-body bag.

For me, this handbag was the PERFECT match to this outfit and occasion, as it’s a very colourful bag, quirky with those little pompoms (^_^), gives an Indian touch to the look, and because I needed something quite large to carry my Canon to click away throughout the event.

Now you must be thinking about why I chose the title above for the article right? Simply because, except for the shoes, I got the whole outfit from ASOS!

Adornment

First post for 2017 Dazzlers, Wish you all a very happy new year!

I am thrilled to start this year’s series with some exciting stuff: a makeup and fashion show!

Lady behind all of this: Sajeda Yadallee – a MUA with over 10 years’ experience, whom I’ve had the chance to meet during the event – sweet lady, she is!

So, this was her first show: Adorn. And we can of course go on and on, on the importance of adorning for ladies of every age.

First fashion and makeup show? It was my first as well! Hence, a super cool experience. Cherry on the cake: front row VIP tickets, and being able to see those gorgeous outfits and beautifully done faces up-close.

Interestingly, the eye-treat was not from outfits or makeup, but also from the hairstyles and accessories. Yay, for fashion treats!!

Casual chic, evening, Arabian, and bridal – we got to see them all, and in great ambience.

My personal favourite outfit was the red crop top and the white calf-length flowery skirt, paired with nude shoes and handbag. Just loved it.

My favourite makeup was the evening one matching the black dress. It’s one of the evening makeup looks from Sajeda’s repertoire. I seriously need to adopt this.

Enough said. I will now let you revel in the pictures from the event. They speak for themselves.

Enjoy dazzlers!

A Tiny Ensemble

Total cuteness! Just what I thought when I saw this miniature Indian dress – a complete salwar-kameez outfit – made by Maman. She is so happy with this Tiny outfit. I, am delighted!

It has taught me one new thing today again – fashion and fashion ideas will come to you in the hugest form or even the tiniest structure, and definitely not necessarily by spending a fortune on.

You may try using this method of making a dummy, if you are interested in these types of art. You will definitely get a pretty fair picture of what your desired result would be. It will help you decide whether the results you are getting from the dummy are actually the desired one, before investing humongous amounts in raw materials, and not being able to create a sustainable business out of this.

So, for everyone interested in fashion and interior designing, or any such other art form, I would urge you do try putting your ideas in your tiny models. Just ignite the spark. And let us know how it went!
