THE EVENING STAR LOOK I SPORTED ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT!
As some of you might already know, I took part in a competition called #StyleYourWayToParis hosted by Swarovski India, in association with POPxodaily and Chambor. Thanks to all your likes and shares, I got shortlisted for the second round and got the opportunity to have an incredible experience with some very talented people. This particular round involved us styling ourselves in one of two themes; New Romantics (a vintage-inspired look) or Evening Star (a heavy dose of glamour). Along with the themes, were also given 5 style trends any one of which could be the highlight of the dress.
I was extremely sure about picking a vintage look and set off to shop for a beautiful vintage set. However, a few hours into hopping from pillar to post, I realized nothing vintage was going to be good enough to catch my fancy any time soon. Just as I was giving up and throwing my hands up in frustration, I came across a beautiful double slit maxi top! Since the Maxi was too pretty to leave behind I decided to jump ships and style a look based on the theme of Evening Star.
Oh and how well that decision paid off! The day of the competition dawned bright as familiar butterflies fluttered around in my tummy. My excitement knew no bounds as I hopped into the venue a good few minutes early. The experience of meeting like-minded bloggers and exchanging ideas was pure exhilaration! That day created memories that I’d like to selfishly keep within my closest circle of friends! All I can say is that it was a day extremely well spent indulging in some of my favourite activities; styling, socializing and posing!
The featured look however doesn’t stay true to the look I portrayed on the day of the competition. For the post I teamed the maxi with the crystal belt but for the competition I wore a golden belt and accessorized it with Swarovski jewelry. This look has a very dreamy and wistful feel to it. This is exactly the sort of look I’d sport on a lazy day to the beach.
I’d like to sign off by congratulating Sonia Thiyam of sheervanitysonia! She truly deserved it!
Until next time then!
All’s well that ends well.
