Today I’m doing an outfit post after a very long time, featuring one of my recent favorite dresses! It is a pink, leopard printed maxi dress from Sheinside, an based online apparel store; I got it along with another lovely dress last month! Few more OOTDs lining up!
Price : $34; Available : Sheinside.com
This maxi dress falls just below my knees but above my ankles! I prefer this length while selecting my dresses. The dress is made of soft chiffon. The material is so light and wearable! It isn’t like few other thick/grainy chiffon dresses that make me feel all sweaty! As the title suggests, it is leopard printed! I spotted some black floral prints as well. The site calls the dress ‘Rose Red Maxi Dress’ however color of the material is pure rose with slight fuchsia hint! It is a very versatile shade! Selecting accessories for the outfit has become easy due to that!
The sleeves are long! Though not full hand, they come close to my wrists. I think it’s a good idea as it makes the dress feel complete! Shorter sleeves would be cuter though. I prefer it this way as well! It has a round-neck which is very close to my neck. Though not a turtle neck, it covers the skin till the neck! (It helped me hide my chickenpox scars over there!)
The dress comes with this belt, which is a lighter rose when compared to that of the color of the dress! It is a deep rose belt with gold shaded metal. It doesn’t hug my waist right; I need to punch few holes to make it sit on my smaller waist!
Overall, it is a lovely ‘Street-style’ dress and makes a simple and perfect outfit to hang out with friends, to shop and spend some happy time with your family during a vacation! Since the dress feels light and comfy, I love wearing it very often!
Few Mirror Sefies
This is my hairstyle, as usual – I detangled my hair and parted it in the centre! And I’m done with the hairstyle. I prefer my hair to be loose unless I need to do some cooking in the kitchen where
everything falls on my hair, my hair falls on everything!
Being a newbie in doing different hairstyles, I’ve started trying few these days as per readers’ suggestions! (After doing my last hair growth update) I believe I’ll be able to pull off some styles and I shall definitely do tutorials here once I try them on my hair!
Foot wear :
I combined the outfit with this leopard pumps that I got long ago from an online footwear store! (Lovelyshoes.net) Except for the size, I so love this pair for the pattern! It’s a bit tight for my foot which makes my walk uncomfortable; otherwise I enjoy wearing it for outfit photography! I guess I’ll be stocking up few more pumps in coming weeks.
I did not want to do makeup but I did it in a very subtle manner for this OOTD, keeping in mind it’s summer! (I’m letting my chickenpox scars/marks heal so I dislike applying anything to my face!)
I skipped the foundation and concealer for my base makeup. I applied few dots of under eye concealer for my eyes and dusted compact all over my face. I somehow did not want to conceal my chickenpox scars. I actually want them to GO away! I’m happy most of them have faded now.
For my eyes, I gave a mild wash of a matte pink-purple eyeshadow (Zoeva 88 shade palette) on my eyelids and lined the eyes with a black eyeliner! (Wet N Wild Black Eyeliner) I hadn’t shaped my eyebrows in the recent past so I didn’t have the interest to do them with an eye pencil. Hence, I skipped that part!
On my lips, I’m wearing a lightest possible coat of L’Oreal Paris Pure Amaranthe lipstick! But sorry. There are not visible on the first two pictures! Though not red (being in a pure reds collection) it is a wonderful deep fuchsia shade with slightest hint of red on the bullet! I finished the makeup by curling my eyelashes! (No mascara!)
I wanted to wear a long black stoned silver chain with this outfit but I could not find it anywhere at the last moment! Since I already loved the round neck, I did not bother about the neckpiece. On my hands, I’m wearing a simple silver shaded round watch that I purchased from a nearest store.
This glossy black purse is from my recent haul! I got it for some 400 bucks and I’m really loving it! I couldn’t carry it while clicking the pictures since I’d been holding the phone connecting it to my DSLR to take the shots. Doing your own OOTD photography is really a pain. I should learn a lot and do a separate volume on it on the Beauty Blogging Series. If you have any ideas, kindly share them with me!

P.S : Sorry for the bad photography – messed up light settings, angles and views. I’ll try to get the photos right for my next outfit post! I guess I need to check the terrace.
