The spring of 2014 is finally upon us and much as I am afraid of the horrid climatic conditions, that the northern part of India would suffer in the coming few months, I think I am just going to enjoy and make the best of whatever little tolerable climate conditions we have until then, why not enjoy till you can right?
So some of the few things that come to my mind when someone says ‘summers’ are shorts, spaghetti-es, noodle strap tops and maxis et al, but what about when you want to take a break from the cliche and want to try something new? Stalk.Buy.Love answered that for me. The lovely peeps there sent me the clothes for the shoot I was styling (for which I’ll be compiling a separate post), but I loved the dresses so much that I could not resist making a separate post for the looks I wanted to create out of those dresses and hence this.
The first outfit is a fitted cropped top and skirt. I have styled it with a statement Zara necklace and clutch, the shoes are Steve Madden. I think this look can take you from a brunch to a party seamlessly. What I love about this dress is that, it accentuates your curves and gives your body an image of an hour glass figure like magically and trust me I am no Kim Karadashian (Lol :p) but boy that skirt works wonders as far as the fit is concerned!
From the fit to the fabric there isn’t a thing that I do not love about this dress! And last but not the least its available for an unbelievable price of Rs 1,499 (Yes I am still sticking by my ‘You don’t have to be rich to be fashionable’ mantra, just in case you had your doubts looking at that pretty dress! :p)

The Eliza Bow dress from Stalk. Buy. Love is also one of the few dresses I sourced for the styling of the other shoot with the model and all, but again the moment I got my hands on it, I felt it begged me to do a pin up look with it! The cutesy bows, the A line fit, the way it falls on you, is all so great that I could not help but wear it and style myself in it! If you’ve been on this blog before, you would know by now that I have a soft spot for solids and I get more inclined towards the cut and silhouette of a dress more than anything else. This dress is a prime example of that and is a perfect fit for just about any body type. It fits at your upper waist making it look tiny and because the rest of it is in an A shape, it camouflages any fat that you may have on your lower belly, plus the cute white ribbons just add the right amount of the playful vibe. I wanted to create a retro look with this dress, therefore I have used a printed satin scarf from a purchase from a flea market, Forever21 clutch, sunglasses and shoes are Steve Madden.
