How to style a T-shirt Dress!

image1

As you must have realized already, (if you are on my Instagram page – https://www.instagram.com/rumnrouge/ ) I am obsessed with T-shirt Dresses! They are comfy, they are chic, and if styled correctly, can look uber cool! I picked up, these two dresses from a shop in Pattaya, on my trip to Thailand, and I am so in love with these, that I wear these around almost everywhere.

The tricky thing about T-shirt Dresses is that, if they are not styled properly, they can also look baggy, and kind of drab. So here are some tips, you should keep in mind, while sporting a t-shirt dress.

  • T-shirt dresses are supposed to be kinda over-sized, so ensure that you buy the right size. If you go overboard with the size, chances are, it will end up looking baggy and would fail to create the desired impact.
  • If you are going to wear an over-sized dress, you might want to balance out your look by wearing shoes, that give your dress a good contrast.
  • It’s important that you accessorize your dress, with some nice, chunky, jewelry. For instance, a nice chunky long chain, or a pair of tasseled earrings would always take your look up by a notch.
  • Any casual look, comes out best, when you keep your makeup, soft and subtle. So avoid makeup that may look a bit too harsh. Keep it soft, and minimal.
  • For that matter, you can wear t-shirt dresses, on any occasion, anywhere, but they definitely make for a great outfit choice, for day events.

So what are your thoughts, do you like how I styled my dresses for this shoot? Let me know your thoughts!

Shopping from The Eco Store

People who know me closely, know, how obsessed I am, when it comes to knowing about each and every detail of the products I use in my daily life. Then be it my food, or my cosmetic products,  for me, it’s important to know, what are their ingredients and how are these things, that I am consuming, manufactured. If you are anything like me, then this post maybe helpful to you.

I recently came across a website called www.theecostore.in, which is entirely dedicated to selling organic products only. From grocery & staples to personal care products, they have pretty much everything covered under the organic category.

I placed an order for 2 bottles of body wash from one of their organic brand partners, Neev, a body scrub from Aarohi, and a pack of Aloe wipes. Nothing fancy right? But definitely everyday essentials, and the thing about everyday essentials, is you need them everyday and when you place an order on a website, you want it at the earliest too! Guess what my wish did come true! I placed my order at 7:00 a.m on a Friday, and my products got delivered to me by 11:00 a.m! I have to say, I was left impressed with their quick delivery!

My shopping experience was smooth and completely hassle free. I am pretty sure, I’ll be placing an order for the next batch of the groceries too, from The Eco Store. If you too are interested in placing your order, you can do so here,

The past month has been a roller coaster ride, with crazy amount of travel and absolutely no breather in between, which is why, the long silence on the blog! But the good part is, I am back and have tons to update the blog with!

Last month, I collaborated with designer label Dimple & Amrin for this shoot. What you see in the picture is a delicate lace dress that can be worn as a party as well as a casual dress. Light and pretty, it is just perfect for occassions when you want to play peek-a-boo. What I loved about the dress, was it’s tiny details and it’s soft and smooth fabric.

If you’ve been following my blog for long enough you’d know, I love the grungy-glam look, therefore no surprise that I styled the dress with minimal makeup and wavy hair, with  boots used as the only accessories.

Let me know your thoughts on the styling? Did you like it?

Food Review for Corutyard By Marriot, Gurgaon

So recently I was invited to do a review for Courtyard by Marriot, Gurgaon, to do a Restaurant Review for their restaurant, Momo Cafe. Marriots are known for their exclusivity, luxury and taste, so understandably, I was very thrilled to do a review for them. The very first I noticed about the place was their extreme hospitable staff, not only did they take special care of me, but also made sure that the food was done tastefully and garnished beautifully. I started with a bottle of Merlot which was followed by the most exotic and tasty thin crust pizza I have ever had. Later they served a four course meal comprising Thai curry and rice, and some more Pizza and Honey Chilli potatoes. I think what added to the pleasure of eating at the Momo restaurant, was the serene and calm ambiance.

So the next time you are in Gurgaon and looking to eat at a place that gives value for your money, I suggest you make a run to Momo restaurant at the Courtyard by Marriot, I assure you, it wouldn’t disappoint you!

P.S – It would be totally unfair if I didn’t give credit to their wonderful Marketing Communications Manager Mansi, who gave us an opportunity to do a review for them. Thank you Mansi! 🙂
