Styling the bump: Maternity inspiration

medium_921981665

I am not one for too much celebrity gossip, but I can’t (like everybody else on the internet) take my eyes off Blake Lively in her “maternity wear”. (http://www.preserve.us/blog/celebration/bringing-up-baby/ ) She looked beautiful. The Sami & Lavi floral top and maxi skirt were sold out almost as soon as the photo was posted on the internet!

But people are acting like a reinvention of maternity clothes has never been seen before. The pairing of the skirt with the floral top is given credit of styling genius. However, I’ve been looking around and I found a lot of other people who’ve been styling their maternity clothes- spot on.

Melizza, from pincushiontreats.wordpress.com, has been “creating treats, one stitch at a time” for her readers. As I was looking through her blog posts, I found some of the clothes that she had stitched herself and created a wonderfully fresh and creative look with each post.

Take a look:

Model Crush: Analeigh Tipton

Placed third on Cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model in 2008, Tipton has been playing both the modelling and acting fields.¬† Last night, I watched “Two Night Stand”, starring her and Miles Turner. She was always the essence of unique beauty, with her perfect eyebrows and adorable smile. But the movie made me look at her as the typical¬† “girl next door”.

Random photos of her portray the “runway ready” look at all times, combined with the factor of “adorableness”, of course. With long hazel brown hair and blue eyes, she posses an essential ability to morph into anything the client/movie demands of her. Her skin, hair and facial features allow her to have a varied inventory of looks to give more room for creativity for the client/movie.

Her unique look is very different from other typical models or the standard of beauty. She is beautiful in every way and I love every look of hers!

Other factors that I’ve taken in consideration that makes Analeigh captivating is the fact that she is not just a beauty. She supports a charity called Invisible Children (Read here about the conflict at Invisible Children: http://invisiblechildren.com/conflict/) She was also an irresistible American figure skater, who, after retiring, continued to skate for charity ice shows for AIDS foundations.

Overall, I think she makes a perfectly reasonable model crush.

Bangalore Fashion Week: The Event

IMG_2296

Sponsored by Myntra at the glossy Sheraton hotel, the Bangalore Fashion week was an immense success. Designers from all over the town had made their presence felt, especially with amazing designs. I especially loved the designs by Dressberry by Myntra and Vrinda Ashwani, which featured a lot of mixed patterns and tribal black, respectively. There were definitely many trends to watch for as well!

This was the fun photo shoot Diti and I had in-between shows. We love to pose. I was wearing a black crop top from H&M with a high waist pencil skirt from Forever21. The skirt gave the flirty top a formal look, finished off by the nude peep toes from Next. The clutch was bought from Forever New.

This was the after-show dinner selfie. We had taken off our heels and ate at Kobe’s Sizzlers, Orion Mall. It was the perfect finish to a perfect night.
