NEED A CUSTOM DRESS? ESHAKTI IS HERE!!

How many times have we liked a dress at a store and thought to ourselves, wish it had sleeves or wish it was longer or wish they had it in my size! With me, it happens all the time. Honestly, Sometimes I don’t like the length or the sleeves or the dress is ok on the waist but loose on the chest or ok on the chest, but tight on the waist. And so many times, I buy outfits, but they keep lying in my closet because I will someday take them to a tailor for alteration and that “someday”, of course never comes!!

MAXI SKIRT AND BLAZER FOR WORK

This is what I wore today for work. I know some of you might find it a bit weird, but honestly, I prefer to wear something covered for my meetings with UAE Government Department and when it comes to modest fashion, why should it be boring!

BLACK BLAZER WITH SKINNY JEANS

I know some of you would say, is this how you go to work? Really, sometimes, I do! As I’ve said many a time before, I don’t like to be tied up between formal and casual and the things that matter to me the most are-comfort, style and confidence. I wear what I feel comfortable in, what makes a style statement and what gives me confidence.

BLACK AND WHITE- MAXI SKIRT AND OFF SHOULDER TOP

Hi Friends! Hope you’re enjoying my posts. I am waiting to hear your comments and feedback. You can leave your comments on the posts or you can also drop me a mail! This outfit is a combination of the two pieces seen in my earlier posts- The white off shoulder top, seen here and the black maxi skirt seen here.

UNCONVENTIONAL WORK ATTIRE

When I practiced as a lawyer in India, work attire meant a crisp white shirt, black trousers and a black jacket..day after day, every single day!! When we moved to Dubai, I began my journey as an in house counsel for an investment house and work attire was still pretty regular. However, I always felt that one must feel good about oneself while at work but sometimes that “feel good” factor is killed by the rules of the corporate dressing.

THE PENCIL SKIRT

This is today’s look with a white silk top, a pencil skirt and nude pumps. I usually don’t wear too many accessories at work, but today I decided to add this chunky pearl piece. and to add a bit of a colour splash, I topped it up with my Hot Pink Tory Burch bag. Hope you like it!

More Black and White

Somehow, Since I started practicing as a lawyer it has been difficult for me to come out this vicious circle of black and white;) And here I am with another black and white work attire! This is not too formal and one can perhaps try something like this on a day when there are not too many meetings. Although, as I have told you many a time, I am not caught in the web of “too formal” dress code and I wear whats presentable, comfortable and gives me confidence to survive a tough day at work.

BUTTON DOWN SHIRT AND CROPPED SKINNIES

This was a normal day at work, with meetings, assignments and deadlines and I found this navy blue paisley print button down blouse that I had completely forgotten about! I took out my beige cropped Jennyfer skinnies, my Charles & Keith Wedges (my fav!!), seen in my earlier post here and I was ready to take on the world:)

POP IT UP!

Practising law can be really “black and white” sometimes, literally! And thats why perhaps, whenever shopping for new pieces, I inevitably end up picking up the brightest shades:):This is what I chose for a hectic Thursday (yeah, for us its the last day before we begin the weekend) at work.

CHIC FLORAL WORK ATTIRE

We had recently hosted a lunch for our women clients and I wanted to wear something vibrant and something that still makes a power statement. I decided to wear this H&M dress with a white base and colourful floral print on top. The flowers are also decorated with sequins at some places.

LONG WEEKEND HOLIDAY -FUN FILLED DAY -2

Our day 2 was equally filled with fun and activities. Day 2 started with breakfast at Tom & Serge. Since I knew the day would involve a lot of walking around, I dressed up keeping in mind both comfort and style.

WHITE SHIRT AND BOOT CUT DENIM

While looking for my morning outfit, I found my boot cut denims and I thought what better day to go casual than a thursday! I put on my white blouse and my boot cut denim and I was ready for my “no meeting” casual thursday:):)

OFF SHOULDER TOP AND DENIM

I remember when I was in grade 10, we had this beautiful actress wearing a white off shoulder peasant top with a white maxi skirt. I so fell in love with that attire (and perhaps the whole country did at the time), that I got a tailor made top similar to what she wore (those days in India, to get a trendy look, one would usually go to tailors) and bought a black and white polka dotted high waisted maxi skirt to go with it. I wore that outfit to my one and only and the most memorable school trip to the hills in India.

CASUAL FUN FRIDAY

I had been facing this constant problem with my eyes for quite some time and finally decided to visit our opthalmologist, who recommended I find my glasses again and start using them as I used to. So, now it was time to go and shop again:) this time for eyewear. while we were going, husband dear decided to have a yummy lunch too and why would I say no!

SHOPPING ON A HOT SUMMER DAY

This was one of those Saturdays when I wasn’t working and had no client meetings. So, I decided to take a little advantage of super hot sumer sales going on at the moment..and what better day to go for shopping when you have your husband baby sitting;) So, this is what I decided to wear..

MAXI SKIRT AND BLAZER FOR WORK

AN ODE TO THE MEN WE LOVE! 15 MOST STYLISH MEN IN BOLLYWOOD AND HOLLYWOOD

ALTHOUGH WOMEN’S FASHION IS WHAT HAS GENERALLY BEEN GRABBING EYEBALLS, STYLISH MEN HAVE ALSO CONTRIBUTED TONS TO THE EVOLUTION OF FASHION. AND THOUGH US GIRLS DO LOVE CHECKING OUT BEAUTIFUL WOMEN AND THEIR PERSONAL STYLE, THERE IS NO JOY COMPARED TO THE UNADULTERATED JOY OF SHAMELESSLY OGLING A HANDSOME HUNK;)!

MIX N’ MATCH!

How many times have we all looked at our closet and wondered we have absolutely nothing to wear! At least I’m guilty of doing that more than often.But if you come to think of it, the question has a very simple answer- “mix and match”! Seriously? My answer would be yes, yes, YES!!

Shift Dress Anyone?

I know shift dresses are everyone’s favourites..They are comfortable, can be worn anytime, and are made for every body type:):)So, in this post, you see one shift dress and two looks! I have these two shift dresses from New Look..Both of them are print dresses and are exactly the same style,but differ in colour(I know what you’re thinking, but I do that sometimes!). While one is a more subtle with hues of browns and white, the other one is a bright orange and honestly, I like both:):)
