Dress like a #Princess

Women love to ‘day dream’ about a number of things and clothes tops that ‘never-ending’ wish-list…

So if you are still wondering on a Wednesday afternoon what to wear for that Friday evening party, you can start surfing for options like I did. The ‘key words’ that I had in mind were –#Hollywood #fashion #redcarpt #style #glamour #elegance and more…

Though there were loads of options to choose from, I finally found this attire from La Tej by fashion designer Tejal Kandpile, that made me feel like a princess in a wink.

A WoW evening gown

Here’s what makes it ‘WoW’:

#The blend of fabrics like cotton, satin and Georgette make this ‘diva silhouette’ a perfect amalgamation of structure and fluidity. You can wear this gown to an evening do and look red-carpet -chic instantly.

#The colour scheme complements most complexions as this maxi dress has a rust red bustier teamed up with grayish blue long skirt. The matte gold, sequin embellishments upgrade the royal feel of the attire.

#The curved embroidered yoke, the motif of two fierce lions roaring and the keyhole cut-work will boost your glam quotient effortlessly.

Keep the makeup classy to complement the ensemble. Keep the skin dewy with a hint of your natural glow, define the eyes with a soft, smokey brown eye shadow and opt for a classy red pout to finish this look. Leave the hair open to cascade down naturally over one shoulder and make heads turn.

Looking gorgeous just got easy!!!

Let the ‘snobbish crowd’ say ‘eww’ to street shopping, bargain hunters love it! Well, I find it ‘Wow’ when I am able to pick up something that keeps my friends guessing ‘which designer label’…
So before you step into those plush boutiques again, try some ‘non branded’ retail therapy for a change.

Here are the top #3 things to watch out for:

#Quality of the fabric is important but go by the style that you find ‘WoW’. Things keep going in and out of fashion, so it should be durable enough to last you for the current season at least…

#Simply check out the stitches by turning the garment inside out.

Footwear too

#A garment that has a ‘stretchability’ factor usually will be a smart fit, even if you do not get to try it on before purchasing.
