    A Trip to Paradise.

    Hey pretty souls, hope you`re doing well. So, our last year was Li’l caught up. But still we managed to plan a trip to this beautiful mesmerizing place. The Taj Mahal, one of the most significant Mughal Empire architectural marvels still stands in all this beauty and finesse in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. The Taj Mahal is a white marble built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The place will give you a whole new view the way you perceive ART. Maybe that’s why it is ranked in the 7 wonders of the world. This intricate work of art took around 17 years to get completed.

    If life ever gives you a chance to visit Agra then don’t miss it and do appreciate the beauty of this romantic building; because it’s worth your time. Basically, it combines architectures from all the corners of the Empire, including Islamic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish and Indian Architectural Styles.

    There is something very uniquely noticeable about these 7 wonders i.e. the changing moods of the emperor’s wife. They’re well captured by the changing hues of the mausoleum at different times of the day. It takes a pinkish hue in the morning, milky white in the evening and golden at night when illuminated by moonlight.

    How to be more comfortable in this perfect sunny weather, just give it a try to your basic long length kurta paired up with denims or ripped denims, want to make it more trendy? Add on some of the chunks as in banjara neckpiece , jhumkas etc. By pairing up with your super cool leather strappies, shoes or mojris.

    Ravish Ruffles *.*

    Ravish Ruffles

    Just when you realize that you’ve finally accepted the Cold Shoulders and then you see RUFFLES frilling around everywhere. Whether they are flowing down your shoulders or coiled around your hips, ruffles add a dash of drama and romantic touch to your outfit.

    Ever witnessed a major throwback?

    Well, Ruffles are here to give you 1950’s feel and clear statement of womanhood. Technically, it refers to a strip of lace, ribbon or fabric tightly gathered or pleated on one edge and applied to a garment as a form of trimming. It comes in all shapes and sizes today. It could be tiny, delicate, over-sized, crisped or tailored ruffles.

    Ruffles initially appeared in sixteenth-century Spain and were unisex. The garment makers used to sew flexible strings into their clothes to make them appear like natural wrinkles. These could be pulled tighter to give a fashionable ruffled appearance. It was once worn by royalty and revolutionaries of both genders, to show strength and exceptional power.

    Ruffles are a perfect combination of feminineness and forward-thinking and to wear one is a way to embrace a surprisingly fearsome legacy. It is a major hit among the girls loving street style fashion. But ruffles could be a difficult thing to pull off without getting a feel of looking like a walking confection.

    In a decade when roles of women were progressively narrowed and idealized the ruffle became more understandably gendered than ever and anything that was sweet and feminine.

    Zara and Topshop reveal ruffles as ultra-girly and Avant-garde borderline. They decorate hemlines and sleeves with beautiful fluttering or standing stiff and starched ruffles.

    If you want to lend some statement in your style, then definitely Ruffles are for you. Like ruffles will never go wrong for a date night also it’ll make your night more romantic.

    Ruffles are a major hit among the girls who love street style fashion. It can never go out of fashion, it gives your style a statement look. They are easy to go, you can pair it Wide leg pants, palazzo pants, pencil skirts and some cute shorts too.

    I’ve paired this beautiful white ruffled top with ripped denim shorts to give some street style look.

    Denims

    Denims 

    Have you ever felt more comfortable or cozy in any casual wear apart from Denims? I would say NO as it is something you can wear on a daily basis for long hours and still feel homely in it. I’m pretty sure y’all beautiful people agree with me. You can never have too much of denim. At least I can’t imagine a day without them.

    Denims are a special part of our life now. Anything denim can be spruced up or dressed down to fit a wide variety of occasions. It is considered that they are the oldest work clothes that were available in the world and are known for its durability and comfort.

    The denim was produced using a mixture of cotton and wool. The first ever blue jeans was called “BULL DENIM” that was designed for miners and workers.

    In this 21st Cent., denims not only come in various styles, including carpenters, sportswear, khakis, chinos, and combat but are also available in different colors, ranging from blue and white to brown and black.

    Ever seen sleeves creating a statement all on their own? Bell sleeves are here to give your style a new meaningful reason. The lush bell sleeves are sooo in trend and the trend is romantic, timeless and old-fashioned. You’ve been wondering why everyone’s sleeves are getting longer day by day and it’s because of these pretty sleeves.

    So today on the blog I experimented wearing this supercool Denim Bell Sleeves top, which is very versatile and perfect for making a fashion statement. It’s the right shade of denim and top you are definitely going to be reaching for constantly. It will look good at brunches, casual day outs, running errands and anything else.

    Bell sleeves have a narrower shape to the shoulder; the cuff hem is also flared. The lines in the sleeve are parallel to each other until flare starts, that is the square shape. The flare is little exaggerated, which gives the sleeve a bell shape. The sleeves do not gather at the wrist, the cuff is loose and flows at wrist giving it an elegant look.

    Style a denim bell sleeves top with a distressed pair of denims or denims matching to the shade of top.

    First look- Bell sleeves top styled with light blue plain denims and shoes.                                                                      Second look – Bell sleeves top styled with light blue denims, silver jhumkas, and traditional chappals.

    Millennial Pink

    All about Millennial Pink 

    Ever seen any color changing gender roles?

    MILLENNIAL PINK just did that! It’s been stated as *GENDERLESS COLOR* now.

    There was a time when pink was reserved for Girly-girls. We are living in an era where 6 out of 10 people are no longer gender biased. Choosing MILLENNIAL PINK is the bold way to blur traditional societal concepts of gender.

    So this pretty color ranges from the shades of beige with just a touch of blush to a peach-salmon hybrid.

    Women can boost their femininity when they rock this hue, men can create a bold statement without getting their ego threatened and everyone out there can welcome this color. This new hue of pink feels like looking at the world through rose-colored glasses and still can’t get enough of it. It comes with a neutrality and timelessness.

    Around 2014 this color first made an appearance in Asia-Pacific region, at that time it was named ‘SHIM’ and the scientific classification of ‘SHIM’ is “she” and “him”, also the awkward naming of the shade does make sense.

    There are fair chances that it’s a trend and every trend leaves and there’s another trend but this will stay for a long period of time. Because PINK is eternal. With a new generation, the color has evolved into a more sophisticated version of itself and has seeped through the modern implications of society.

    Also, this pretty shade of pink goes well with many colors like pitch black, foliage green, greener pastures, etc.

    This bold and whimsical color is leaving its impression everywhere. It could be most Instagrammed Pink drink at STARBUCKS or Zayn Malik dyeing his hair Pink or Zara millennial pink biker jacket. The color keeps on selling product and you’ll just keep on buying because you can never have enough of this color.

    Just like a few days ago I was having an eye on this beautiful Millennial Pink top but wasn’t sure that should I go for it or not. So this time instead of putting this top in my cart, I bought it.This top is available on Missa More, one of the best e-commerce sites for those trendy outfits.

    This Pink top is named ARABIAN NIGHTS, the name sounds so appealing that you couldn’t stop yourself from buying it and also when it’s in Millennial Pink color.

    Shop it from here – Arabian Nights!
