{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} The Fuss-Free Bride series - Part 3

Hello lovely people!

November is running away so fast, i can almost smell christmas ! That wonderful time of the year because its laden with romantic winter air and many social gatherings ,
so we can go date/spouse hunting ;)

As look 3 of the fuss-free bride series, this look is part-grand , part- flirty and a total "STAR" . Appropriate for your cocktail party/ engagement party or even the New years or Christmas party if you are the host with an added drama ! If you notice, i have used a common theme across all looks- a single tone.
Single toned outfits are simple to style and are easy hacks to looking elegant with an added bonus- they always photograph well. For special occasions , a photogenic outfit is a must !
Also, as a bride its important to let the face of the bride shine through more than the outfit. A single toned outfit brings instant focus to the face! Not only that , for bridal occasions, both outfits of the bride and groom need to be in sync. Single toned outfits make it simpler for the groom to be in sync . For example, this outfit will look great when paired with a simple black tuxedo or an ice blue suit or even off-white! Thus the groom gets more options to dress up !
Thats certainly a win-win!

The house of Karleo whips some real drool-worthy couture and this is a two-piece outfit that looked even better in person than pictures .

I have worn their skirt differently just because i love the sprawling fabric showing on the front with a side show of legs. The design is actually meant to be worn with the shorter hem on front . Nonetheless , i love how i could create variations just by turning the skirt to the side! You may add pointy gold or silver pumps in case you are looking for a more dressy look! The hair can be kept simple as the outfit is doing most of the talking . I wanted to tie my hair in a bun but my just coloured hair camouflaged with the outfit - you can see the burgundy streaks shining and i loved showing them off . Hope you loved this look as much as i did shooting in this and wishing it was my party! I didn't want to take this off!

{ E.D.I.T.O.R.I.A.L} The Fuss-Free Bride series - Part 2

Hello Lovelies,

Firstly I am so thankful to your response on the instagram preview of this post . I hope this final post can meet the high expectations that the preview post created .

When i was at the Soch store for sourcing , this was the third option out of 3 i had shortlisted . I was not sure if this heavy work would look good on me though i loved the piece on the hanger. When i tried it on and stepped out of the trial room, all eyes in the store were gleaming with approval- and Suraj who was the sales executive helping me with trials,  instantly said- Ma'm this is the best  . I literally felt I'm shopping for my wedding again, haha!

Most of the times, wedding shopping is concentrated excessively on the 'outfits' that a bride is wearing. However, a very important aspect of making a bridal outfit work is the accessories+ hair.

Even if you choose to wear a simple monochrome tulle Lehenga, you can look like a million bucks just by adding mogra/white roses to your hair and of course layered Kundan jewellery. That was the idea of my own bridal look and you wouldn't believe but my outfit costed Rs.12,000 and i made it look special with the kundan jewellery.

In this look, while the kurta is definitely a heavily embroidered piece with a luxe silk fabric,  bridal vibes stem from the way its styled viz. the Red gerbera flowers in my hair and the nath . Imagine the look without these two additions- it may not spell as bridal as it does with them . In general, this kurta doesn't even demand a neckpiece if you see its heavily embroidered neck, but the addition of  neckpiece adds that "extraaa-bridal " feel . Now you know how you can add that "EXTRA" to any bridal look without investing in an extra-expensive outfit - always remember to throw the attention on your face first which means Hair>Accessories >Outfit.

Wish you a happy wedding season. The finale of this series will be a cocktail look -so stay tuned. If you missed part 1, its here.

{ F.A.S.H.I.O.N} The Fuss-Free Bride series - Part 1

How are you beautiful people? Hope this Diwali was a fabulous one and i wish that your year ahead is full of LOVE, LIGHT and LAUGHTER. 

Just like last year , Diwali is the beginning of all things festive on the blog. Now that the wedding season will be in full swing , these new posts are ideas for all you Fuss-free brides out there ! 

If you are one of those brides or even the family of the bride who love elegant yet easy to wear looks, then this post is for you. Red is the color of passion and synonymous with all things bridal in India. 
The best part - red brightens every complexion and the simplest of accessories can take the look from plain to glamorous. 

If you are looking for a simpler outfit for the Roka ceremony or even your Sangeet so that you can dance free like a bird, take a cue from this Bandhani/Brocade border Anarkali from Soch
The flare is absolutely gorgeous as you will see in one of the pics and the use of gold embroidery patchwork makes it very royal . 

I have paired it with a Rajasthani Borla Maangtikka , contrasting ocean blue earrings , a simple Nath and a kundan neckpiece . You can even dress down with just a big Jhumka and a Maangtikka. 
Hope you like this easy look and the next Fuss-free bridal post is on the way! 

Pics- Mayur Shedge | Edits- yours truly 

Till next time, CIAO!
