In the recent years, I have added on some extra kilos and a lot of grey hair too and initially I hated my body and how it was changing but now I’m trying to make peace with it. I had to tell myself, that I’m a normal human being and change is just a part of my life. And I ain’t got millions to get surgeries done to make me look forever young 😛
From the past 2 years, I’ve been running away from bodycon dresses, skirts or anything that came anywhere close to my skin in the fear that people will call me fat. I was trying to body shame my own self but recently I decided to build some courage and get into this beautiful beige bodycon dress I recently bought from Topshop. And I’m so glad I did so because I frieking love bodycons now and will never ever stay away from them. Infact, I bought two more bodycon dresses after this shoot. 😀
Here are the pictures from that day; A perfect look for the Autumn with the least amount of efforts needed. Enjoy the pictures!!
Beige Dress: Topshop
Puffer Jacket: Cotton On
Shoes: Street Style Store
Patterned Stockings: Shop Nineteen
This was a simple outfit idea that you can try for the coming Autumn. There’s not much efforts put here in dressing and that’s why I love dresses for t’s simplicity and effortless beauty. Always remember to love yourself because nobody can appreciate your flaws until you don’t do it yourself.
I am super stoked today to tell you all about this new and highly advanced technology based concept introduced by Jealous21 at their Indiranagar, Bangalore store. I don’t know how many of you have tried this, but a few years back creating avatars and dressing them up was a huge craze and I used to totally enjoy it. This is somewhat the same concept used by the awesome people at Jealous21 in “wear it” , but instead of an animated avatar, here they use our very own scanned self of our body.
So let me tell you a bit how the Virtual Mirror or the “Wear it” works. The system identifies our size and shape as we stand in front of it and uses the motion- capture camera to produce a realistic image and gives us an idea how an outfit would look on us. So in short, we are trying out outfits without actually waiting in those long queues outside the trial rooms. The whole concept has been designed so beautifully that it can be controlled through our hand gestures. All we have to do is use our palm to navigate through various outfits and by showing a “pushing” gesture we can select outfits to see how it would look on us. The use of hand gestures might be a bit new to you in the beginning but after using it for a while, it will be smooth as silk to you and you would love the experience. They also have a mouse and keyboard in case you find it difficult to use hand gestures.
You can “mix-n-match” your lowers and tops according to your preference and create various looks which can be shared on your social media like Facebook or even sent to your email through the virtual mirror which I think is absolutely fabulous and fun.Though I would definitely mention that this will only help you see how an outfit might look on you but not help you with the correct fitting, but still saving a lot of time from sorting out clothes or wondering how it would look on you or if the color would look good on you or not.
I have always loved the denims at Jealous 21 and have been shopping from them from quite a few years. They have recently launched their new Miss Universe collection with the brand ambassador being Paulina Vega(miss universe 2014) and there are various fits catering to the Indian women body types ranging from Hottie, Hourglass and Bootilicious. I think creating amazing silhouettes and fabrics keeping in mind the customer’s requirement is something that really impressed me about Jealous 21 since the time I’ve started shopping from them
Since technology has been a key factor in everything possible we do these days, having something so fashionable created from this amazing technology is something you all should look forward to girls!!! This ultimate reality experience is soon going to become all of our life saviour from standing in long queues especially during SALE.Oh and I also picked up two pieces from their new collection which I will soon style it to show you all.
