There are two kinds of people, ones who love white and ones who love black. I fall in the later category. Black is a color which will always win my favour over any other color. Being a girl, it is a given by the society that we are supposedly big fans of the color pink. Not true. I personally do not understand why pink is seen parallel to femininity. I know many girls who despises wearing pink, myslef included. But if there is one shade of pink that I do not mind so much is the dusty rose color. You will rarely ever see me wearing pink, but if you ever do, I bet it will be this dusty rose color, or champagne pink. 

This wrap skirt is my new favorite item in my closet. A new addition and a hot trend from Spring 2016, it makes me look slender and slims me down even when I have had a big meal. With Fall season approaching, this color would blend seemlessly into autumn fashion given the versatility of the shade. I styled this look with a bohemian touch but for fall, I can totally imagine rocking this skirt with a black crop top and a leather jacket with some ankle length boots!

How would you style this wrap skirt? Share with me in the comments below!

The Devil Wears Prada

Of all the girls who love fashion, at least 99% of them love the movie "The Devil Wears Prada", I am sure of it. And if you fall under that 1% category...honey, you need to reflect on your life and see the movie if you haven't already! The movie completed 10 years few days ago and to pay my respects, I styled an outfit inspired by our beloved Andy aka Anne Hathaway.

After Andy Sachs gets her makeover by Nigel, a fairy godmother (or godfather?) we can only wish for, she flaunts the most covetable outfits that was stylish way back then in 2006 and even now, 10 years later in 2016! Her fall looks were to-die-for and a little secret, before buying any winter coat or jacket, I think to myself, would Nigel approve of this? The fringe I sported last year was a small effort to look half as chic as Andy did. Needless to say, got nowhere even close but who's stopping me to try?

Andy wore her red skirt with a chic white top but I took my own spin on it and wore a black crop top. As far as I can recall, she did not wear crop tops at all but then again, it was 2006 and crop tops became the rage in past few years only. The interesting thing about this look is while it looks chic and expensive, it is very very affordable as the whole look is by Forever 21 and you can easily recreate it!

Stripes for SS16

While the cold shoulder trend took the centerstage this season, quite excessively I might add, one major trend that has been repeatedly ignored is bold stripes. The runways were stomped with stripes in every possible way you can imagine. Be it vertical, horizontal, asymmetrical, thin, bold, colourful or monotone, stripes are definitely one of the key trends of Spring Summer 2016. I decided to pay a little homage to this trend before the season passes us by and all we are left with to remember it, is visual proofs of only the cold shoulder trend.

Fashion doesn't work like that you see. You can't conform to follow one single trend during one season but sadly, that's what happens. Especially in India, people don't understand fashion fully and that results in a new blogger being born every single hour without the knowledge or even so little an interest in knowing anything about fashion. This storm of new uneducated bloggers did affect me and made me sad how fashion is being taken as a joke lately, and I did loose my interest in blogging for a while. Although, I must add, few new bloggers have really outdone themselves and have been creating amazing content. They should be given credit for not being swamped away in this new trend of dummy bloggers. 

Styling this look was a fun and interesting process. I knew I wanted to emphasize on the stripes trend but I also didn't just wanted for the outfit to be one dimensional. Layering the chic dress with a casual sweatshirt in a colour, which is also the pantone colour of the year (Serenity) created an on-trend look which can easily be worn to a poolside brunch or for dinner with friends. 

I skipped adding heels as I am personally going through a phase where I am not wearing heels a lot and it is only fitting that I show you guys how you do not need heels to make an outfit look better. You can be comfortable and stylish at the same time. The shoes I chose for this look was a very cool pair by Presa Flats which states "I Don't Know" and "I Don't Care": Precisely my reaction to most of the things these days!

Le Max2 Review

The latest technology to hit the market is LeEco’s Le Max2 and we couldn’t be more excited! With the new CDLA (Continual Digital Lossless Audio) technology which as the name suggests is capable of end-to-end lossless digital music transmission and a great set of front and rear cameras, it is definitely going to take the market by storm!
Le Max2 comes in two variants - a 4GB RAM + 32GB storage model at Rs. 22,999 and a 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model that costs Rs. 29,999.

This super sleek and classy phone has a 21MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. It has similar design like the Le Max, with the near-bezel-less display, and a front body that’s covered with a layer of glass.

The camera is in the centre on the back, with the fingerprint scanner just below it which comes in very handy while unlocking the phone. Camera is one aspect where I feel the Le Max2 performs quite well. The photos are sharp and vivid, especially those taken in daylight. The low-light performance of the Le Max2 doesn’t disappoint either.

The 5.7-inch 2K display means this phone is not for those with tiny hands. It is definitely a bulky device but you cannot ignore its performance. Getting a cover and a tempered glass to protect this phone is a must. Le Max2 offers a high resolution in this price. Plus, LeEco has included Android Marshmallow’s Adaptive Display feature in the settings.

I usually keep the brightness at less than 30-50 per cent at all times but cranking it up to full was a bit too much for regular usage. On the battery front, Le Max2 lasted 10-12 hours with heavy usage, which is great considering the 2K Display. It does not have a slot for external memory cards. The Le Max2 works with LeEco’s CDLA-powered earphones connected through its USB Type-C port. First up, you can’t just use a pair of earphones lying around to listen to music, or borrow one from anyone around, and secondly, if you forget to carry these CDLA earphones, then you’ll just not be able to listen to music. But not to worry, it comes with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio adaptor which can connect any regular earphones to this phone.

Purchase of this mobile comes with a 1-year membership to channels on LIVE, so one could get TV experience in it. Also, it has one of the smoothest touch screen functionality as compared to other mobiles till now.

For early adopters buying during the flash sales, LeEco also throws in a pair of CDLA earphones (featuring the reversible USB Type-C connector) with every purchase of the Le Max2! The CDLA earphones do not allow any sound quality loss and can reproduce the variations in sound in a better or we say the best manner possible.

It is indeed a very good investment and it doesn’t disappoint in its looks either. The phone looks very chic and the subtle Rose Gold color is beautiful to say the least. I can’t stop whipping it out now and then to show off a little… ;)
