For the last few years now, working in a corporate firm in Manchester and in India (both), my only concern was ‘Mondays’ (actually even weekdays) – they are good & productive, but they are more consuming. Especially if you pay, even a lil attention to the hatred trolls and memes on Facebook and /or Insta about Monday mornings. But I would say, not all is lost if you get to take your style to work. Yay!

If our love for all things fashion has taught us a lesson, it is to hold your confidence high up and bone it like you own it.

How many of us really wake up and start our mornings singing songs of love and joy? And have an extra hour to try out various outfits? And finally pick out one impressive formal look together and wear it to your monday happiness? If this is your morning story, and this is you, then stop reading here.

Others (& me) 3 out of 5 times, we find ourselves running around trying to figure out ‘what to wear’, ‘what will look chic and yet be comfortable’, ‘how does my day look like’, ‘who will be wearing what’, ‘I have nothing to wear, ‘who will make my coffee’? Constant fight of thought’s while you are starring at those piles. Personally, one of the biggest challenge is to ‘dress smartly’ for a packed calendar.

BIG TIP: Organise your wardrobe and maintain it like that! You will always have more.

Now, one of my favourite approach is to pick attire that is versatile. Something, which can easily transition from glamorous at the office look to a late dinner & cocktail night. The 9am to 1am kinda look. These are those days where your hectic schedule does not allow you to change. A classy glamorous look is for all those sexy women around the sphere who rule the world, and would rather do it in style with sky rocketing high heels, bright seamless colours, painted lips and statement accessories that go day & night.

Well, as I always say, keep it simple; so for meetings, I am wearing my seamless pencil dress with neutral black toe lace pumps and delicate classy diamond and pearl accessories from Ted Baker. The tip is to infuse posh heels, rich fabrics, expensive perfume (a must, I am wearing Chanel No 5.), statement jewellery and a good bag.

After back to back meetings, I am was heading to my company’s private dinner & cocktail night at White Owl (lower parel, Mumbai). All I have done is folded my dress in a lil to make it look petite and crisp for a night out (who said you cannot curve your style skills;)) and changed my accessories to something more extravagant, to make a statement. I will add big statement earrings and rings for my fingers OR a showy necklace and small earrings to finish the look. It is imperative to stick to one big element for your look, not making it gaudy. I have also changed my heels to a solid colour, as I want to draw all the attention to my stunning jewellery. You can also style it with old metallic heels.

Now, Lipsticks last longer but gloss is more fun! So for nights like this, I pep up with a little gloss for the gleaming fresh look to match the spirit of the place that is so fine-looking and welcoming.

So, voilà, you are all set to go!!!

Love Thyself,

Sincerely, Su!

P.S. I am love with the freshly brewed artisanal beers at The White Owl. The place is young, relaxed and classy, yet easy. It is brightly lit and lively by day, warmer by dinner and progressively spirited as the night evolves! Sincerely, A Must Try!!!

The moment I saw this dress on ASOS, I ordered it. Once the dress was delivered, I fell in love! When I tried it on, it reminded me of a fairy tale (we all know Cinderella and her glass shoe). That inspired me to do this shoot and sprinkle some magic of love & freedom (for who “I” am and whatever “I” want to wear).

Fierce and fantastic, the ultra charming red dress can be something you can never say “NO” to. Undoubtedly wearing red would surely be my style, specially this dress wrapped in romantic lace, is a sheer delight. The illusionary high neck bodice has full sleeves and a flawless fit to show off your figure. Making a statement by adding drama, yet sophistication with its high low hemline.

Ah, isn’t this dress gorgeous? 

This dress serves dam well, even when you are unsure weather to wear a short dress or a long dress. If you want a pattern that will stand out, high low hem is the answer. Not on this dress, but a belt instantly compliments a high low hem dress and not to mention it accentuates your figure.

You can always accessories it in right proportions (very important). A dress that speaks so much, I would love to keep it minimal and classy. I will also love the way rings with gemstones and / or a particular metallic will compliment my look by adding a lil extra sparkle.

Shoes are essential to emphasis high low hem dresses, as legs are surely highlighted in this style. So to slenderise  your calves, heels or stilettos are a must wear. Also, heels will always empower your look and confidence.

The personal expression of who you are, every time you dress up lies in how you carry what you wear, wherever you go. So girls, get up | dress up | show up and please don’t forget your sexy buoyancy and a matchless smile!

Love thyself,
Sincerely, Su!
