Sparkle #179: Pant Suits in Bright Colors

Nothing says business quite like a tailored and well fitted pant suit! I am not much of a jeans/pants person – I prefer dresses over jeans any day. In fact it’s been a while since I brought a regular pair of jeans, I swear by my Uniqlo jeggings and have them in more than 1 color! But the one item of clothing I have always lusted after but never really owned is a nice pant suit. From a business meeting to a night out – a good pant suit can get you through any event and that too, comfortably. There are two…

Sparkle #174: Rose Quartz & Serenity Mood Board

Pantone recently released it’s colors for 2016, and I am delighted! Rose quartz and serenity make for a light and airy combination which can not only exist by itself, but also easily mix with other colors to create eye catching palettes. That sounds believable, doesn’t it? I mean, how can a dash of pink and blue not work at creating magic? This is probably the first time Pantone released two shades as their colors of the year. Their website states that the two colors together symbolize balance, compassion and relaxation – expressions very relevant to the times we are living in. While Marsala, their color for 2015, denoted energy and action, these colors call out for…

Sparkle #168: Embellished Statement Jackets

Did you see my post on party dresses for Christmas and New Years? Well there is one more way to glam up your look for a night out – an embellished statement jacket! Just throw on one of these over your little black dress or formal trousers and you will be ready to rock the party. While it is relatively easy to find party dresses both online and offline, the same is not true about these statement jackets. They are both expensive and exclusive, and usually I end up liking a design which is either a couture designer product or just simply unavailable! I…

Sparkle #164: Gorgeous Party Dresses

Parties and December go hand in hand! Whether it is a Christmas get together, a holiday party at work or a New Year’s bash – going out gets more frequent in December. And every evening out is an excuse to go shopping and pick up a new party dress! When it comes to party dresses, there are plenty of options to choose from – both in terms of tailoring and embellishments. I feel like we are living in a time where one can pretty much carry off anything – lace, sequins, beads, velvet – and still not commit a fashion faux pas. Personally, I avoid dresses with…
