Magenta & Margaritas

In this post, I am introducing a brand called Lurap, that not only does plus size fashion well but also customizes apparels. Nothing better to select and buy the best fitting clothes, Every women is unique and so is her shape - that should be empowered and thats what Lurap does the best.

If you have been following my blog since a while you definitely know how much I love to bare my shoulders.  Off-shoulder dresses & tops have definitely come back in trend and in so many ways, for me personally its a trend that is always going to stay and be my favourite.

This beautiful summer- wine dress has a great 'Fit & Flatter' style. It fits perfectly in the waist and flatters those' hips and creates a beautiful fall of the garment. The colour is what I am in love with the most. Its eye-catching & appealing.

The process of getting your clothes custom made has never been easier, I was quite surprised myself Its easier than it sounds. All you have to do is - Select your designs - Provide your measurements - Option to customise further- & Voila! Get delivered across the globe!

Sun-Seeking Gypsy

My favourite article of clothing that represents beauty, fun & comfort is definitely the kimono.

Contemporary kimonos have been given a modern update - Prints, fringe, colours etc. Its a perfect cover-up & an overall which instantly brightens up the look & gives a cool-boho vibe. 

When you talk about boho, the brand that flashes right in front is- Aanya. Inspired by vibrant cultures you can find the most creative and fun pieces on their website. 

For this look, I am flaunting the 'Kaia' Kimono with a tasseled hem. The loosely-fit , open-front kimono falls mid thigh with oversized tasseled sleeves and also has side pockets. 

I paired this kimono with a plain white dress, reminding me of a bright blue sky on a spring day.  

With a brand that does boho-chic on point, they have an amazing collection of bags & totes , In this post I am carrying the 'Weekender Tote'  - vintage faux suede travel bag. Handmade by local artisans using one-of-a-kind banjara, Afghani, Kutch patches, which include embroidery details, mirrors, beads and stones. Comes with sturdy handle straps and adjustable/removable suede shoulder strap.

All the items are available at - www.aanyashop.com

Faded & Cropped

Iv done many posts where I have exaggerated that every body type can wear crop tops and this one is no different. Back to minimals, I paired my two favourite items together (my lace black crop top from koovs.com & my blue faded jeans from GIA (westside) to feel more effortlessly cool I added my another two favourite elements ,  a black hat from forever 21 and my new fancy Chanel bag.

Squash those fears about bright blue denims and crop tops, at any size you can enjoy any style.

Wander The Aanya Way

There is nothing better when a passion & a career come together, Blogging for me is a journey which is constantly showing me the creative & positive sides about being unique in your own fashionable, beautiful way. I was lucky enough to come across a brand that lives by - free-spirit vibes & transforms that into one outfit at a time. 

In this post, I am flaunting two beautiful maxis from AanyaThe Anita maxi kaftan dress is a beautiful thigh high-slit maxi with a v neck. I love the print on the dress , the high slit definitely made me feel so feminine. The dress has a sweet flow which is completely harmonised with the boho-feels.

The second dress is the ‘Hasina maxi dress’ its vibrant & colourful inspired by a traditional Indian ‘Ikat’ print. The dress has two side slits and a plunging back line with a rope halter. I shot this look by the pool and I love how it did complete justice to this beautiful outfit and bought out all the gorgeous colours. 

These outfits are perfect for summertime, if you are on your way to a music festival or just hanging around with your friends by the pool or like me - wear it at every occasion you feel playful.

The Colour That Matters

I have been shopping & looking at trends in the stores here in HongKong and the colour that stands out the most is -Mustard Yellow. I decided to get my hands on this dress from Zara. I wasn't quite sure how it would look until I tried in on , but I am so glad I did. The length, material and style of the dress fits perfect! The colour is especially my favourite its earthy & perfect for a summer day!

I love the fact that mustard yellow is not as bright as a plain yellow dress, The dress is casual and the material is the same off a tee, but the cut out sleeves add so much edge and can be worn for many occasions, I paired this dress with my black H&M heels and my Michael Kors bag. I added black accessories to pair up with this dress reminding me off a NY cab.

Purchase your first mustard yellow piece and try incorporating it in your wardrobe,

Make up Look - Blended Crease Eyes + Dark Lips

Before starting a step-by-step guide for this make-up look, This one needs a little bit of patience and practise. For this eye make-up I played with only two shades but it took a while to blend back & forth to get the desired results. 

Eyes- To start of with the eyes , I first used my Maybelline concealer as a base and then applied  a nude colour eyeshadow all over the eyes to set it, I then went it with the browns, I took an angular brush from faces (Its the best one to apply eyeshadow on the crease.) Dipped the brush in a brown eyeshadow and went back and forth on the crease. I smoked out the lower lash line with a dark brown shade as well. 

To complete the look I applied my maybelline hyper gloss liquid liner, Rimmel Glam eyes mascara and Glowmiere Beauty lashes 

Face - I mixed bt tow favourite foundations - Bourjois 123 perfect foundation in the shade -n53 
& MAC face & body foundation in - c3

Lips - Maybeliner - Lip Liner (hollywood)

I skipped blush for this look since I wanted the main focus to be on the eyes & lips but I did apply 2 coats of MAC highlighter (Soft & gentle)

Products used 

Coastal Scents  Neutral eyeshadow Pallette 
Maybeline hyper gloss liquid eyeliner 
Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara 
Glowmiere beauty lashes 
MAC  - Face & Body foundation (c3)
Bourjois foundation (n53)
MAC - Highlighter (Soft & Gentle)
 Maybelline - Lip liner (hollywood)

I love the end result of this look, I realised how great brown & maroon look together! If you would like to recreate this look , All products used are listed above.

Among Graffiti Walls

Before heading to HongKong I did a little research about street art and graffiti walls, I wanted to shoot some fashion/creative pictures and I found the perfect street to explore, chill and get some shots.

I came across this area Graham street, comparatively to other areas  this one was quite hipster based and filled with expats. I spotted this uphill slope with this colourful street art wall and me and my sister set a little picnic and began exploring and shooting.
