    VALENTINE’S DAY LOOKS

    I must confess I really don’t like commercialised Valentine’s Day celebrations & what V Day has come to be. I’ve never been a big fan of embarrassing bouquets, pink and expensive set menus. And I believe that a girl shouldn’t have to try too hard (or really, anyone shouldn’t). So for the outfits I picked, it’s all about looking sensual without trying to hard, no crazy bright red dresses, no fancy makeup, no “look at me” attitude. But even with these easy looks & your effortless charm, he’ll still see you as the lady he wants to seduce.   Slipdresses & innerwear as outerwear are all the rage these days,…

    WHAT TO WEAR NOW: SPRING 2014

    Pink is in again! We love the shades of pale pink, dusty pink and even Pepto Bismol pink, but you definitely can’t go wrong with this.

Look for minimalist designs with emphasis on structural details like darts or rounded shoulders, as silhouettes are more mannish instead of your typical frilly saccharine sweet style. Scared of all-over colour? Try it in small doses like a small clutch or on your nails. All items from ASOS.   Midriffs are also the new cleavage. I know you’re thinking that you can’t pull…
