Traditional look with a “Saree Gown”

Hi beauties,


Hope you had a great Navratri and Dusshera. We are back with another traditional look for the festive season and this time the outfit of choice is a ‘saree gown’.  I wore this saree gown for the celebration of ‘Hindi divas’ at my college.


So before I go on, here’s a little information on what it actually is, a saree gown is basically a saree inspired gown, which looks exactly like a saree, it has a proper fall and pallu falling over your left shoulder except it is a gown and the blouse, pallu and the fall are stitched together. So all you have to do is put the gown on and you will be ready for any traditional event.

The best part about wearing a saree gown is that it offers the best of both worlds! It gives the ethnic and graceful Indian look of a saree combined with the ease and comfort of wearing a gown. Wearing saree to college for a whole day is too tiring and uncomfortable also, people who know me well already know that I would choose comfort over style any day and hence I would sell my soul for something like this, which has both comfort as well as style.


In this outfit, I have styled a black and fuchsia pink saree gown which has a glittery black blouse attached to it, which has a net boat neck.

Since this was a college event, I wanted to keep the look simple and graceful which is why I paired it with a magenta and golden bracelet and a black bindi to make the look more traditional.


Hope this saree gown look was useful for you, we will be back soon with another look for you, till then keep showering your love on us.

Lots of Love,

Look stylish this Durga Pooja

Hi Beauties!!


The air is already filled with festive mood and excitement, with Navratri and Durga Pooja celebrations. Durga Pooja is one of the most celebrated festivals in India. The sheer grandeur and elegance of the occasion make it all the more worthwhile. So, How can our beautiful ladies be behind on this momentous occasion of festivities and celebrations. As promised, on Shasti,  we have some exciting style tips for Durga Pooja, which will ensure that you make heads turn the moment you step into the pandals. Let’s get started, you can thank us later!


Look Stylish with palazzo suits: A popular traditional clothing item is palazzo suits. Style your beautiful Simple Palazzo Suits with  heavy dupatta or ditch the dupatta with a heavy palazzo suit. Look for kurtis with long slits on the sides, asymmetrical hems or sheer fabrics to pair them up with matching palazzo pants.


We have paired a simple red and white anarkali kurti with a loose palazzo and a beautiful dupatta to add a festive look…


and since the Palazzo suit we picked was simple we completed the look with a heavy necklace and red bindi.



Have fun at the pandals in fusion style: This pooja, take the fusion route on at least one of the days, if you are not much into the traditional wear.


And believe us, everyone would be totally impressed with your choice. Pick gowns, cape kurtis, cowl style long dress, dhoti pants, or mix and match to create your own fusion look.


We styled an open cape style white and red kurti with a red gown and accessorized the look with a big statement style maang tikka.


Look like a diva in a crop top and a maxi skirt: Go a very different Pooja way, in a youthful and light maxi skirt and crop top.

10No embroidery keeps the look very chic, add vibrant colours, prints, light and easy- to-breath material, the vibrancy of colors will not let you feel dull even for a moment. All the holy colors of feminine strength come alive in this chick style that’s so cute that people will stop you in your tracks – asking where did you buy it from.


We styled this look with a beautiful flower print long skirt with a thin border and a white plain silk crop top accessorizing with a long red necklace.


Go traditional in laal paar saree: Wear the beautiful  ethnic white saree with a red border on dashmi.


It might have been worn by many, but wearing a traditional white saree with red border during the Durga Pooja has its own charm and will never lose its charm. Drape the saree in the traditional Bengali style or wear it normally.


Try on this look with elegant gold jewellery and a big red bindi on the tenth day of the pooja while bidding adieu to the goddess. We styled our look with  heavy off white and golden silk saree having a dual colour border of red and hot pink accessorizing it with a red temple necklace, a red bindi and red and golden jhumkis.


So, lovely ladies, dress up and enjoy the Durga Pooja celebrations. Try the classic and timeless, tried and tested looks or go for some unique ones with modern touch. And, do not forget to like, follow and leave a comment for us. Do share your feedback in comments below, and your Pooja pictures, so we can feature you in our blog 🙂

5 fashion trends for Navratri 2017

Hi Ladies

Festival season has begun, we all know Navratri  is one of the most celebrated festivals of India. Each Indian festival celebrates a specific force like lights, colors, water but Navratri is one such festival which not just celebrates women but also is an amalgamation of colors, vibrancy, lights, exquisite attires, loads of jewelry and yes, dance.


With the beginning of festival season, shopping bags are ready, people have started searching for the latest trends for this Navratri to keep them up style. Women of every age group love to dress up. People love to follow trends and get decked up even if they don’t play garba just to get that festive feel.So, with this post, We would be sharing the 5 trending styles for Navratri 2017. Since, dressing up is one of the most indispensable part of this 9 days long festival, let us dive into the best 5  trends for Navratri this 2017.

Bright, single  : Anything bright, beautiful and bold is ruling the trend and we are more than happy with it!


This year mono colour trend is very much in and preferred and we created this look by wearing a pink and golden lehenga paired with a sleeveless pink blouse with golden work on it and a pink dupatta and paired this look with a golden gota patti jewellery.


This gave a beautiful heavy look for the Navratri party and makes you look fashion forward.

Fusion Lehengas : If you are not willing to don the desi avatar, you can steal the show in one of these fusion lehengas.


These lehengas are a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary fashion.


For this we styled an offwhite tie and die lehenga skirt with pink embroidery choli and pink dupatta, accessorized it with pink beaded necklace and white big jhumkis…


This lehenga gives a very light and graceful look and makes it easy to swirl and dance all night..

Long Skirts : Long skirts are a favourite during Navratri. If you are keen on playing garba, a long skirt would really compliment your look.


There is an array of skirt styles – there are Jaipuri Bandhej skirts, digital printed skirts and skirts embellished with gota patti and tassels. The way a skirt moves while you dance is quite an appealing sight.


You can wear it with a crop top or a simple sleeveless waist length top. Pair it with an oxidized necklace or beads necklace or a gotapatti necklace to complete the look.


We have created this look by pairing a maroon and blue long skirt with aqua blue sleeveless crop top and a light maroon dupatta with heavy maang tikka and red jhumkas.

Easy Breezy Maxi Skirts: Not a fan of heavy embroidery? A simple  maxi skirt is the right choice for you.

7It will allow you enough comfort to fully indulge in all the fun on the dance floor while keeping up on the style and elegance quotients. Pair it with a complementing blouse  for a chic vibe. And lots of heavy jewellery, to add the bling.


We paired this golden and offwhite maxi skirt with a sequence blouse and a pink net dupatta and a heavy pearl maang tikka, jhumkis and golden gotapatti necklace.

Desi Lehengas: Flaunt your feminine side by wearing one of these jaw-dropping lehengas this Navratri.

8Whether you are playing dandia or garba, these lehengas would definitely do justice to your ethnic appearance. Make sure you wear heavy oxidised jewellery or pom pom jewellery along with a pair of hanging earrings to rock the perfect ethnic look. This look is best created by adding a lot of contrast of colours and a lot of bling, we have paired this heavy orange lehenga with green dupatta and added pompom necklace and a maang tikka to create the perfect look.



Do let us know what you thik about the looks and let us know which is your favorite look and the trend you follow and keep loving us :*

Stay tuned.. Our next post has a lot to do with red and white and is coming up soon 😉

A Date with Kanjeevaram

Hi Pretty Ladies,

How are you girls doing? The months of September and October have always been my favorites because of festivals, lights, sweets, social gatherings, family gettogethers and not to forget our excuse to wear beautiful, heavy ethnics 🙂


 With the beginning of the festival season we decided to dedicate this week to our traditional attire, I love wearing ethnics because they bring a change in your monotonous daily wear clothes and make you look graceful, elegant and beautiful which no other form of dressing can do and with ethnics you can wear big jhumkis(danglers), or neck pieces and glittery bangles.


I wore this beautiful Saree for Ganesh Chaturthi, before I go further, a little information about Kanjeevaram Sarees is here – They are one of the finest silk sarees from Kanchipuram which is a town in Tamil Nadu with more than 150 years of weaving tradition. These sarees are characterized by gold dipped silver thread (zari) that is woven on the premium quality silk. Kanjee silk is thicker than almost all other silks, and is therefore more expensive and more graceful. The heavier the silk, the better the quality. The border and pallu (end of the saree) has relatively more embroidery than rest of the saree. These sarees are meant to last up to a hundred years, thus require extra care while folding and wrapping.


People who know me well, already know my love for sarees. It is my favorite piece of clothing to dress in, Classy-Sexy-Feminine, All in one. I do not get many chances to wear such Sarees and as there was a festival, an occasion to wear saree, I didn’t want to let this one pass me by.. hence I wore this beautiful royal blue Kanjeevaram Saree with silver zari work in border and pallu and wore the blouse of similar color as the border. I chose to wear a puff sleeve blouse and temple jewelry.


Jewelry that goes best with Kanjeevaram sarees is temple jewelry, mine was with a Lakshmi pendant but you can get these with Ganesh pendant, coins design and many more.



Hope you girls picked up a few tips for your saree look for this festive season, we will be back very soon with another traditional look.. meanwhile don’t forget to like and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

Lots of Love

Birthday Look – An Outfit For A Special Day

Hey everyone, how are you all? Hope you’ve had a great start to August with so many long weekends ahead. As you may be aware it was my birthday on 14th  I thought it would be a good idea to do a post about birthday look.


My birthday look is a new challenge, every single year. As it is one of the most special days of the years for me, I do want my outfit to be that special as well. An outfit can make you feel confident or not during the whole day.


I turned 21 on 14th August! And this beautiful dress is what I wore! When I spotted this dress, I knew it would make a great birthday dress because it’s equally festive, I mean, just look at those ruffles and easy to wear again. Plus, it was perfect for my Birthday dinner. Of course, your birthday look depends on what you have planned to celebrate your birthday. In my case, we went for a warm evening family dinner, Since I was down with fever and waiting for my blood test reports, I decided to go simple with the make-up and just applied a bright lipstick to add the color to my look.


I wanted to wear something chic, special, but still classy. And this classy white frill off shoulder gown pepped me up enough to dress up and wear my invisible crown even when I was unwell. Since the dress was a beauty in white with a beautiful neck work in pearls and sequence, I decided to go simple with accessories and just added simple pearls.


Because this birthday girl loves to set goals, I’m celebrating with a look back on my 20 achievements I set for my 20th year.

Overall, I’m proud of what I did accomplish. Here’s to hoping 21 is even better, more fruitful, and more fun!

Hope you enjoyed this post, something a little different from the usual anyway 🙂 Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes too, it means a lot! ❤



BeFunky Collage

P.S.  Your birthday is, the one day of the year where you can demand that all the attention to be on you, and you alone!  Because no matter what magic number you are turning, everyone wants to look and feel their best! Whether it’s an 18th you’re attending, or a ‘Fabulous at 50’ celebration, there is a dress out there for everyone.

World Lipstick Day

Hi Pretties…

Today is “World Lipstick day”, and everyone knows- lipstick is my staple for make up and a good lipstick like ruby woo or NYX Monte Carlo can make my day. I have always noticed women wearing lipstick come across as strong, successful, happy and confident…


I wear lipstick on good days, and on bad ones. Lipstick gives me the confidence that I need to conquer anything. I wear it on days when I am at home, or I know that I need to accomplish a particularly tough task.

images (4)

I know a lot of you may think its just lipstick but trust me with lipstick on, anything seems possible and that’s why I feel today is the perfect day to write 11 Reasons Why Lipstick Can Turn Your Whole Day Around:


  1. You know you’re going to look amazing when you have on your signature lip color, which means you’ll feel great all day long.
  2. Variety: Have you ever looked at a lipstick range and felt bewildered at the sheer number of colors? Talking of sheer, you can buy glossy colors, moisturizing lipsticks, matte lipsticks … the possibilities are endless..
  3. Compliments: People compliment women who wear lipstick. They just do. And who doesn’t like compliments..
  4. Confidence: Your confidence will be through the roof when you’re wearing a lip color that makes you feel special and beautiful..
  5. Effective: Lipstick is really effective in how it makes you feel and look. If you have a date or an interview, a subtle application of colour can really make a difference to your image…Be careful not to overdo it, the aim is to polish your look, not look like a clown..
  6. Cheerful: One of the best reasons to wear lipstick is that it´s so cheerful. Just a simple application changes your look completely. It not only makes you look good, it makes you feel good. So if you need cheering up, grab that lipstick tube and brighten up your face. You´ll feel so much better.
  7. There is a color for every mood and every occasion.. If you’re a lipstick hoarder, you’ve got a certain color that goes for every occasion. Bright orange during the day works just as well as deep red at night. Switching up the color can completely change your frame of mind.
  8. For ladies who don’t wear lipstick on a regular basis, putting on a flattering shade of red one day will make you feel like a celebrity, because everyone around you will ask why you look so particularly great.
  9. Even if you have on no other makeup, you’ll look put together, and in turn feel put together. Lipstick can make the most amazing difference to your face and look. The effect can be quite dramatic.
  10. Boosts Your Mood: Wearing lipstick is an amazing mood enhancer. If I´m feeling a little glum, I apply one of my favorite red shades (a stronger one for evening, and a softer shade for daytime). My lovely red lippy never fails to cheer me up! Even if I´m not going anywhere, the mere fact of wearing it makes me feel good.
  11. Stunning: wearing lipstick can make any woman look stunning. once you find the perfect shade, you´ll love it forever for the way it brightens your face and makes you look amazing…



And today is the perfect day to buy a new shade and add to your collection.. I bought “Sugar Matte as hell crayon lipstick – Cherry Darling.. and I am loving it..


Do share your favorite lipstick shade with us and keep reading..

Good night

Today I have picked up these stylish black lace hot pants, they fit me perfectly and look so flattering. I paired these with a blue sequins spaghetti Blouse.


I love wearing shorts. Absolutely love it. Any weather, any situation- I’ll be wearing shorts. They are just so versatile and comfortable. But you know what I love doing more? Getting ridiculously overdressed for things. So I wore this shiny, glittery blouse to add a perfect glam to my look, but you can wear these shorts not just for parties and clubs but anywhere and anytime.. just pair it up with a chambray shirt, or a colored tank top, or simply add a cape or a denim jacket and pair it up with sneakers for a casual look, stilettoes or pumps for party look..


To complete the look I wore these beautiful blue crystal earrings and a multi colored necklace.. and since it was a clubbing night I decided to wear my favorite black heels (I know you see me wearing these a lot, but these are so comfortable it feels like a cushion inside)..


I know we all love hot pants but they can either make you look hot or over exposed.. but no matter what your body type may be, the idea of wearing these should not be so intimidating, especially if you know which style fits you best and here I am with a few tip to wear this beautiful piece of cloth..


  1. Lengthen legs with a super high heel for a night out. If you aren’t six feet tall, wearing hot pants with a pair of killer stilettos will accentuate your frame and leave your limbs looking long and making you look SEXY
  2. Cover up your top half with a sharp blazer for a formal look as a chic blazer over a loose blouse will streamline the entire look and give you a sexy classy look perfect for a dinner date, or add a denim jacket for a casual outing with friends..
  3. Wear these on a beach with a sheer kaftan cover up… it’s a perfect vacay look and add tie up flats to the look.
  4. Finally the most important “Fit is key” Make sure you find the right hot pants for your shape. There is no hard and fast rule to follow while selecting your perfect pair of hot pants just go with the one having a perfect fit and a perfect look and don’t ignore the comfort.

Style A Nude Dress


Hi sweeties,

How are you girls enjoying the rain? I did a lot of online shopping as it was raining outside and raining sales online too…


Last weekend, I came across these 2 beautiful dresses and thought these were such classic and timeless items, and the color is one of the hits of this season – nude. I bought nude shades, especially because they create a nice color contrast with strong neon colors such as red, green and orange. Today’s post is all about how to style a nude dress. I have tried to style 2 dresses here and have tried to keep them subtle but you can certainly pair your nude dresses or tops with a bright red, neon orange, hot pink or any bright shade. wear a bright choker or a bright jacket or bright heels or simply carry a bright bag, if you want to keep it simple pair it with off-white or black..


In my first look I am wearing a nude and off white Ikkat print dress. The fabric is pure cotton and the softest thing ever, it is comfortable and easy to walk in, a perfect dress for summers. I dressed it up with off white heels, off white beads clutch, white jhumkis and a copper color Neck piece. This dress is perfect if you are hosting a tea party or dinner at your place.


It makes you look classy but not too dressy, just apt for the occasion. I wore it for a dinner organized at our place.


The second look is of a gown in nude. This beautiful off shoulder gown has peach border hem and off white ruffles around the neck.  It’s easily my favorite outfit at the moment. This dress fits so beautifully. I love the way it falls, also the frill neck and color blocking just made me drool over it.


I teamed this lovely gown with beige heels and peach necklace and multi colored earrings.  This is a perfect dress for a formal event


Why Nude is the in-color?

An all nude-brown-beige look, is the definition of understated elegance, Beige shades look clean, fresh, refined and quite luxurious. The mix of all nude colors holds a certain femininity to it and a classy minimalism with tones of glamour or bohemian vibes, while being kind of understated.


If draping yourself in this color is not your cup of tea, perhaps just a dash of beige might be your thing. After all, a little does sometimes go a long way. Nude beige tones tend to look amazing against denim and whites.


Here is a word of caution: Nude tends to look washed out. To avoid looking washed out try blending pops of color in your outfit, even as small as bold nails or lips.

Sheer Kurta …. Fusion Look

 Hi Girls


We want to start today’s post with a warm thankyou note, as we have been receiving a lot of positive reviews about our blog, which makes us happy and motivated that Shopaholic Adventures is getting so much of love from you all… We just Can’t thank all you pretties enough for your love and support.


2017 is welcoming all the beautiful trends which I love… Florals, embroideries, stripes, bows, denims, sheer fabrics, out of these stripes and sheer are obviously my favorite and I’m much obsessed about it. Today I am posting a new look which is another experimental one…. An Indian street wear kind of look which is wearable on an everyday basis if carried with ease and style, while styling this attire I had only one thing in mind – “Fusion Wear”. I gave my western ensemble a desi twist with an ultra-modern kurti.  I’m wearing a semi sheer Polka dots kurti over a crop top paired up with my comfy jeans. This semi sheer kurti is my absolute favorite and so inn.  To complete the fusion look I paired black bellies with this attire and wore no accessories. keeping it simple is the goal!!


To add to the look, the weather right now is ideal for experimentation. Also, off white is a color that blends effortlessly in your outfits and makes your look very pleasant. Fusion wear trend is here to stay and these pictures will show you how to slay the trend. You can also pair this kurta with palazzos, long skirts, dhoti pants or pencil fit pants.


That’s all for the post today, hope you girls liked it. Make sure you tell me your views on it in the comment section below or send me a personal message on my Instagram  or Facebook page. I love hearing from you girls!


Lots of love and outfits,

Styling White Pants

Wearing white in the hot season is anything but radical, yet remains a staple look. A trend that will always be in, and summer associated, although it’s a look that has spread its classiness in autumn and winter as well.


It got me thinking if, and why, it is so… Cause regardless of personal like and dislike we must accept, it is brighter, (Yes, it is white, but it somehow pops more than any color) it is classic but not too been-there-done-that, it is a no-brainer but not that easy to pull off. White is one of my favorite looks for summers, but white has been around since forever, so is it possible for us to reinvent the way we wear it? How do we do it? Is white so versatile that it can go from morning to evening, from Mondays to Sundays? And here I am with today’s look and style tips…


You know the beauty of white pants is that they wash well and if need be you can bleach them! for those that say that you’re scared that they’ll get dirty when you sit down, I’ve never had that problem.  Another plus of wearing a white pant is that any blouse will go with it and when it’s blazing hot outside, the last thing you want to be feeling is constrained by your clothes. So, to stay cool, I have been taking advantage of hot weather trends like flowy off shoulder top and dresses which allow you to show a little skin without looking too risqué. I would call it the perfect combination of sweet and sexy.


I paired up my white pants with this pretty off shoulder crimson blouse, and accessorized my look with white multi layered beads necklace and my cherry red bag, I decided to ditch the Kajal and keep bright lips, for this look I have used Maybelline Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick – Hot Wine which I bought from Nykaa on sale and the good news is its still on sale till 30th June, you can buy it here. 


You can either wear white or black shoes with white pants, I chose to wear my black ones as these are classic black heels and very comfortable.

Tips to wear white:

  • If you have always been reluctant to wear white, give it a try! Don’t be afraid that white makes you look bigger, but instead focus on finding the perfect fit for your body type.
  • Play with different tops and shapes or try wearing tunics or short dress over your trousers.
  • White is such a great versatile color you can wear it with all the colors in your wardrobe. Give it a try and mix with clothes from your wardrobe.
  • If you are wearing white pants first time, sticking to a neutral palette is the safest and most popular option.
  • Pair your white pants with pumps and a bright patterned blouse, to create an outfit that could take you from work to evening drinks.
  • Add a bright lipstick and no Kajal look with your white pant look, it gives a no make-up yet dolled up look.

Do you wear white? Or are you scared? Trust me I was super hesitant to wear it at first, but you have just got to do it and you won’t regret it, I promise! Do share with us your experiments with white..
