“Playing with prints”- An OOTD from the Backwaters

Hi pretty people,

First of all, really sorry for being MIA for a long time. I know I’d promised to post 2 posts a week, but I’d been on a vacation cum a small visit to my granny’s house in Kerela. I’ll tell you all about my visit very soon in another post. 😀

I have always loved prints. I feel if you choose the right print according to your body type, it does magic to your whole outfit. I know its time to take out our winter clothes, but there are still places in India where you need to wear summer clothes all throughout the year. And Kerela is one such place. So here it is, sending you all the love wearing this beautiful Maxi Dress from the backwaters of Aleppey.

Maxi dress: MISSA MORE; Sandals: SSS; Silver Necklace: Brigade Road, Bangalore
MAKEUP: Makeup revolution London, LA Splash, MUA, Maybelline
I love the carefree, feel-good spirit of summers, especially all the fun and easy-breezy clothing that accompanies it. Maxi dresses are the best for those sunny day-outs.
Everything about this look screams HOT summer days can be so much fun … I wore this comfy maxi dress from Missa More along with the golden and black pair of flats from Street Style Store and to jazz up the look, paired a silver neckpiece that was a street shopping at Brigade Road in Bangalore. I never forget to use bold colors for my lips and that’s why this dark fuschia pink lips. I am not very good with makeup and having a lot of pigmentation issues lately, hence I just used my Makeup Revolution nude palette for my eyes along with a hint of kohl to line my eyes with a little bit of CC cream mixed with my sunscreen.
Maxi dresses in flouncy layers of cotton help you stay cool, and they look good on most every body type.  The lightweight, breezy fabric is ideal for humid conditions, plus the fuss-free silhouette is perfect for all your on-the-go moments.
Style any of your maxis with a pair of flats for a chic-yet-laidback daytime outfit. Don’t forget to checkout MISSA MORE‘s website to checkout their amazing and affordable collection.
Have a great week ahead girls 🙂

 

StreetStyleStore.Com Haul and Review

Hi Everyone,

 

It’s been a while since I posted here. I was a little busy coping up with my CAT preps and then had to come back to Bangalore from home (homesick already 😦 ). Anyway that was off topic. So today I’ll be posting my first ever haul on the blog and along with a review about this website called Streetstylestore.com that offers an amazing variety of footwear, bags and the newly added section for chic and sexy clothing as well.

I stumbled upon this website through an ad which I saw on Facebook I think a year back and noticed that they have some luring and interesting collection.There are different offers that are available on their website like 3 pairs for 999 INR, 2 pairs for 999INR etc and the designs are pretty cool and very different from those one come across on other websites or even in a store.

Though the first time I helped ordering 2 pairs of sandals for my best friend’s sisters at 999INR and he paid through card for it. The website says the shipping takes 7-21 days, but for our shock the sandals never arrived in the mentioned time. We even tried to find a number on their site to contact them and much to our surprise there was no contact number available. All we could do was just email them and no response from their end. After almost 1.5 months the footwear arrived and what I got to know from my friend was that they looked of a very cheap quality.

Well, so this time around a month back I visited their website and ordered 3 pairs for 999 INR and decided to choose cash-on-delivery instead of paying online to stay away from all the tension and headache which my friend had to go through. After around a month later when I almost forgot about my order my package arrived. The 3 pairs were stuffed in a cardboard box and the condition of the box didn’t look much appealing to me as well.

Lets get into this haul and I’ll also tell you what I feel about them as well!!!!

Here to staple:

And this is how it looks in real. This one’s my favorite among all the 3 in the haul. It has a very bohemian look to it with all that tassels going on 🙂

And this what I received. I expected the straps to be rigid enough to stand straight, instead of it all over the place, falling haphazardly. 😦

What I received in the package. The sandals in the picture looked so awesome and unique, but it was a total bummer only because of the flimsy material of the strap and the soles looked very prone to easy wear and tear. Though love the color combo 😀

I really liked the unique designs of the 3 sandals but was very disappointed by the quality as the straps looked very fragile and delicate and I doubt it would last a long time if you do not take good care of it and end up getting stuck in the rain with these sandals. I have a very mixed impression about this website and when you visit their Facebook page, you will see many complaints about package not delivered to the customers and comments getting deleted from their pages if it is kind of negative for them. But I kind of liked the footwear as you shouldn’t expect a lot when you pay 300 rs for a sandal. It has to be made with materials worth that money. Except the delivery time and their lack of customer service, the only thing that draws me to their website is their unique designs and great offers.

Pros:

  • Great and unique designs
  • Amazing deals and bargains

Cons:

  • Horrible delivery time
  • Lack of product details on the website
  • No customer care number to contact

Here are a few tips to those who wish to purchase from SSS (streetstylestore.com):

  • Always opt for cash on delivery and not pay online
  • Zoom in the pictures to find out about the material of the products as there’s no product details available
  • Have a lot of patience as the package will take almost a month to reach you most of the times

I had an okayish experience with streetstylestore.com and I will definitely want to checkout their awesome collection of bags and clothing section soon. If any of my sweet readers have ever ordered their bags or clothes do share your experience with me. Also do let me know if you found this haul interesting and if you would like to purchase any of these 3 footwear. All the links have been mentioned below the pictures to directly go to their website.

 

Have an awesome weekend my lovelies!!! 🙂
