The foam softly reaches for my sandy feet, and just as slowly, recedes into the deep turquoise ocean. This ensemble is reminiscent of a cold winter’s night spent at a dark and desolate beach, simply thinking. Recently I have come to the realization that your inner thoughts truly control your capabilities. “Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart”-cliche, yes, but very true. Sometimes all that you need is that individual “me” time to rummage through your thoughts and catalogue your goals and the path needed to achieve them. For me, the ideal place for this would be an empty beach, where it is only the beauty of the deep blue waves and my thoughts.
This outfit is actually from a couple of months ago, when the temperatures were unbearably low and darkness began to conquer in the early evening. The minty blue-green color is refreshing, but not too florid. While the loose fit and bare shoulder is both comfortably chic and subtly sexy. The cigarette inspired leggings perfectly balance the lose fitting top, but also slims my legs with the simple white stripe. This ensemble is truly effortless at its best.

A call of distress is sent out in to the pitch black darkness, lit by the stars of the night, beckoning for an enraptured goddess to answer its pleas.
Homecoming has come and gone with autumn and the acclaimed spirit week is officially over. It makes me a little nostalgic to think that this is my last year of high school, but with the new “senior” title comes a certain wisdom and classic factor. This LBD is simply the perfect way to embody my new senior spirit.
To say it in plain and honest words, everyone needs a little black dress. But this LBD needs to be an embodiment of your personality and style. This dress is truly impeccable for me, each detail adds allure and showcases how I style myself on a daily basis. The short hemline lengthens my already mile-long legs, and the tight fit embraces my body and creates a more curvy shape. One thing that I “j’adore” about this ensemble is that it is not overly sexy, like many other homecoming dresses are. Although this dress is short and clings to my body, the neckline makes it more appropriate, and the polka dotted pattern on the mesh adds a certain quirkiness to the outfit. However my favorite part of this ensemble must be the cutouts, they are what I like to call the eyes of the outfit. This pop of skin, through the polka dot mesh, makes this dress truly unparalleled and Angelina. As a finishing touch, I wore these embellished black heels to add some sparkle to my glamorous homecoming night.
Melodious birds sing the song of Cinderella, chirping away as they piece together an angelic ensemble.
I may be a little to a lot late to post my first day of school outfit, but here I am with this piece of glory. The phrase “geek chic” could easily be used to describe this seemingly studious ensemble. The pastel collared shirt contributes to the muted allure of this ensemble with the lace top half. While the neutral shorts, with multiple shades of brown, contrast the light color in the top and emphasize my long legs. Simple accessories make this outfit truly chic.
Senior year has only piled on my more homework than Junior year had, and because of that I have not been able to post in two long months! However I hope to post many more looks very soon!

The deep aqua shades of the ocean send the angel of seasons to shore to bid the warm summer sun farewell.
Those three months of the year when a certain calm settles in the air is cause for the perfect ensemble to represent the tranquil vibes of summer. White is symbolic of purity and has a certain simplicity that no other color can obtain, it is one of the most versatile shades in the color wheel. This simple white tank dress is impeccable for the sun’s hot rays, but is also perfect as the base to any ensemble. The bright white that layers the tight dress works wonders with my dark skin tone and creates a casual, yet vogue piece. Because each thread of the dress embraces my body so well, it accentuates my curves and makes the ensemble more alluring. The accessories are the most key aspects in this outfit because each piece adds color, texture, and pattern. The pastel blue and opulent gold contrast vividly with the bright white of the dress, and complement the ensemble. Finally to add to the easy-going nature of this piece I fish-tail braided my air and wore patterned platforms.
I apologize for my lack of posts this summer, I have been busy with internships and college apps, but I hope to post many more outfits soon!
Allusions entrance their victims in a spiral of lies and misconceptions, these sneaky creatures are created to fool society to fall into stereotypical falsities.
Navy, black, and beige are some of the most basic colors that compose this piece; usually this pallet is used to describe a school uniform, but in this case it is the key component to this alluring look. In a way, this ensemble is an allusion with it’s basic colors, maxi skirt, and traditional pattern which sounds like the perfect modest look; but in reality this is an incredibly captivating outfit with many sexy details. The key to this piece is combining a neutral pallet and simple shapes with alluring complexities. The facile black top is a basic piece to any woman’s wardrobe, but also a sexy addition to an outfit. If someone were to utter the word maxi skirt in high school, it would be perceived as the most traditional, chaste piece that simply should not be worn. However this skirt is the complete opposite of that description, with its translucent fabric and deep slit. Finally the chunky, indigenous necklace adds a level of individuality to this enticing ensemble.

Culture speaks to the soul to my bring out hues of black and silver, reflecting itself as a mirage on my body.
My Indian origins have brought me to the place in which I am now, I am inspired by the indulgent colors and patters and I find myself lost in the cultural story of Indian style. It is truly difficult for me to create a unique ensemble with a sari because it has to be worn in a specific way, so I cannot use my usual “avant-garde” ways. However I do adore this piece because the sari itself is exquisite in my eyes, the color combination is simply impeccable. The black foreground with silver accents make this outfit stand out, and the fact that it is very sheer makes it seem like a more youthful sari. Finally to make this ensemble truly mine I added only silver accessories to make this piece unforgettable.

Effulgent azure rays of sunlight penetrate my body, creating a floral amalgam of spring time rapture.
A warm ardor of serenity envelopes my body in binding flowers of the sun, to carry it to the heat that this season brings. This ensemble evolves around the vivid hues of blue and deep vivacious prints of spring, that create a peaceful and serene vibe. The floral denim shirt fits my slim body impeccably to compliment each and every curve to create a feminine silhouette. The bandeau under the slightly unbuttoned shirt creates the alluring ambiance that I crave in all of my outfits, and also makes this piece more dainty because of its diaphanous lace. The bright cobalt blue shorts is the “eye-catcher” of the outfit, the color is so bold and avant-garde that it adds the perfect amount of edginess to the ensemble.

Polka dots diffuse themselves on the surface of azule nirvana, embodying the grandiose sillouette of an ostentatious creature of the sky.
Circles symbolize the epitome of eternity, its sinuosity constructs a shape similar to that of a furtive snake. This pictorialization of parallel patterns creates a vivacious “spring time” vibe. This particular ensemble was the perfect pick for a picnic at the lake because of its casual, spring, and french ambiance. The minute polka dot setting of the slightly sheer top is impeccably paired with the gargantum polka dots of the mini skirt. The opaqueness of the top creates the alluring vibe that I so greatly adore, while the short polka dot skirt carries a more sweet and girly vibe.

A kaleidoscopic time machine has seduced me into its portal, escorting me to a province of amalgamated ornaments and vogue grandeur.
Spring has sprung in the hearts of the vivacious east coast, bringing with it ostentatious and vivid hues. This ensemble is the embodiment of “spring colors” with its bright, bold reds and aztec inspired yellow. Geometry acts as a rudimentary principle that aids in creating an elegant work of art, the heterogeneous mixture of circles and stripes evokes an animated and warm spirit. This well fitted top clings to my waist, but the peplum section creates more volume and shape to my slim body; the polka dot print is bright and grandiose creating a 1950’s vibe. The tight skirt also fits my body impeccably and adds a certain spring ambiance to the ensemble because of its aztec bold prints.

A taupe blaze of ice burns through a garden of vivacity, leaving remnants of bare efflorescense.
Permutated weather create a screened canopy of uncertainty about spring’s outcomes. This ensemble is a result of the varying weather from week to week. A sweater warms my body from the bleak and unforgiving winds, but the short dress underneath it still has the allure of a springtime look. The epitome of feminine and edgy is embodied through this outfit because of the refined look of the skirt and sweater vs. the black belt and dark biker boots.

Azure winds of refinement wrap around my body to create a nest of comfort and elegance.
Sleek tailoring is the key detail that allows for the most impeccable outfit, without it our society would be bonded in cubic apparel. This streamlined, fitted dress accentuates my slim body to emphasize it’s curves and emit a cultivation sophistication. Printed tights are a paramount option to crown a strictly simple ensemble, these polka dot tights add texture and pattern without appearing overly flamboyant. To say it simply, keep things simple when you want to look elegant and refined

A vendetta of broken peace breaks between an alluring seduction and celestial enchantment.
Ethereal clouds of innocence draw my soul into a heavenly channel, only to be extracted by the deep blaze from underneath me. The cozy, modest turtle neck serves to comfort me in the blazing snow, while the obscure darkness evokes the edginess that I so desperately crave. The juxtaposition between “angelic” and “demonic” follows this ensemble through the comparison of the turtleneck and the leather skirt, to the thigh highs vs. the polka dot tights. Although the frigid cold haunts the outdoors with whitewashed pavements, these warm thigh highs allow me to show a peek of skin while retaining heat to myself. The lack of gaudy jewelry gives this ensemble a simple, sleek, and elegant look; the only piece of jewelry that I included was a chic watch as a finishing touch.

Waves of elegance engulf me, transforming my body into a creature of the wild.
Varied textures are the most integral factor in forging an ensemble that appeals to the eye. This ensemble flows like the vast waves of the ocean, yet the contrasting texture of the cozy,chunky sweater creates a more casual vibe to a rather dressed up look. The alluring stilettos add a different texture to the grandiose scheme of the outfit and create a longer leg line for me. The towering jumper elongates my already tall body, constructing a slimmer and more elegant look block by block. Finally the amalgamation of leopard with the pattern of the sweater creates an aura that evokes memories of wild animals frolicking in their natural habitats. Simply, My crux for generating a stunning outfit is derived from a quote showcased in my room, “Defy Stereotypes.”
