Today, I’m doing an outfit post in association with Shoppers Stop, which happens to be one of the famous shopping portals in India for clothes, accessories, homeware and a lot of other stuff.
The kurta from Biba is priced at Rs.1999; available at shoppersstop.com; it is elegant, neat and I think it’d make a great party wear! I paired up it with my gold jewelry and created a simple look today.
So I’m someone who has two or maybe three salwar suits in my whole collection of outfits! (And no, this is not a joke!) I VERY rarely wear a salwar let alone any kind of ethnic wear! (May once or twice in a year?!) But when I choose one, I make sure it’s the one I’m comfortable wearing! Blingy, glittery ones are so NOT my kind. I dislike embroidery as well for unknowns reasons. I prefer the work to be simple, yet nice. So when I chanced upon this bright pink Anarkali kurta at Shopper Stop, I couldn’t resist picking it! The color was so bright and it screamed summer. Since I’m into bright/fluorescent shades these days, I was drawn towards this piece from their new collection as soon as they launched it!
Shopping Experience: My shopping experience with Shoppers stop was really smooth! I received the package safely on time and the product was well wrapped in layers of bubble wrap. No complaints!
I got the kurta in size 36 which happens to be almost the perfect fit for me! Maybe slightly loose around the waist but that isn’t a big deal. There are 5 different sizes online to choose from.
The kurta is long (Anarkali!) and is fluorescent pink in color! The shade is something I’d pick for summers. It is very bright & alluring that I loved it so much! The fabric is fine and comfy and is of good quality. The kurta has beautiful golden prints and I like how it is not very harsh to my eyes. The gold prints are subtle, yet very beautiful! The kurta has a close mandarin neck and cap sleeves; buttons on the front, a zipper on the side for the ease of wear. I chose to pair it up with a skin colored cotton pants as it compliments the bright shade of the outfit! (The shades show up washed out in a few photos due to the harsh sunlight. I’m sorry about that!)
Accessories: I kept the accessories simple since I didn’t want to over-do the whole look. I didn’t wear anything special but my daily wear gold chain, jhumkas and bangles. I’m wearing my black-beige wedges to complete the look!
Hairstyle: I badly wanted to try braids with this outfit but just before the evening, I washed my hair! I tried to dry it a bit before braiding it but still, my hair wasn’t full dry. That is why my braids look messy and limp! (Nevertheless, I liked the braids with this kurta! Free hair is too much to handle for Chennai summers right now!)
Makeup: After doing my base (L’Oreal Paris Infallible Foundation – Caramel Toffee), I wing-lined my eyes with a black eyeliner! (L’Oreal Paris Super Liner eyeliner) I did a neutral pink eye makeup and I completed the look wearing a bright lip color (Orchid!) from L’Oreal Paris!
The photos were clicked by my cousin (Vicky) who is very new to DSLR cameras. But I really hope you liked the look! Do let me know your thoughts on the comment section below!
P.S: I’m planning to visit the Egmore cotton street this April. And if I do, I’ll make sure to blog my experience as I shared the T.Nagar shopping haul post last month! Do stay tuned to the blog for more updates!
