5 Winter Essentials (continued)… A Black Coat + Florals!

Hello Beauties!

A very Happy New Year to all of you from Shopaholic Adventures!

So, our 3rd essential for winters is a COAT. Coats are a must for winters because though fashion is important, it should not leave you freezing in the cold.


A coat is one such apparel which gives you a huge mileage and also gets you the most glances when you wear it. Also, coats add an oomph-factor to an already lavishing outfit, making u look all the more fashionable. Not only this but coats also turn your lazy kinda day into a ‘intenionally lazy, no- effort’ kinda day


Along with that since this is a new year’s special, we have added the bonus of starting the year with the most coveted trend of 2017, FLORAL PATTERNS! Florals are all about having fun with fashion all the while embracing the joy of the season.

This season’s florals come in soft pastels as well as vibrant hues. The soft pastels make you embrace your inner girl while giving u girlish charm and the vibrant hues give you a bright and bold look.


For New year’s eve, these are the looks we adorned along with a coat so as to not freeze in the cold!

In the first look Mallika has worn a blue floral tube dress for the night and styled it with a flower choker necklace and matching blue bracelets, because it was new year’s eve a long dress seemed to be more suitable than a shorter one. Along with this, a bell sleeve coat looked the best hence, that is what was worn.


For the second look Praghti has worn a one shoulder sleeve floral dress and paired it with a flowery necklace and black stilettos. This look seemed perfect for a new year’s eve especially in the withering winters of Delhi, a black coat to match this outfit was a must!

Do tell us how you liked our new year’s eve look, and whether you are in for the floral trend or not!

Lots of Love and Good luck,

Praghti & Mallika


5 Winter Essentials (continued)… Christmas Special!

Hello Hotties,

Merry Christmas to all our wonderful readers and thank you for continuously showering us with your love, we love each one of you!

So continuing the 5 winter essentials, the next one on our list is a Velvet dress, which is a must have in your winter wardrobe, co-incidentally it is an apt outfit for Christmas parties considering it is all things Christmas-sy and festive.


Velvet dresses have been in vogue since fall 2016 but choker neck dresses have become a major trend this fall, not just choker neck dresses but choker neck tops and sweaters too have gained popularity.



Like most trends, chokers evolved into pretty choker necklines which enhance not just your necklines but also your shoulders, so whether you have broad or narrow shoulders, a dress with such neckline will fit you very snugly and make you look smashing hot!


As far as the fabric is concerned, velvet is a  very rich and luxe fabric, which gives you a very classy look especially if worn in bold colors.


I styled my Christmas look with pointed red stilettos which have a very shiny and sparkly heel, giving it a more festive feel. It completely matches with the red velvet, red floral earrings for the glam and a simple silver bracelet for a little more shine. However you can even pair it with thigh high boots as they are the new favorite of this season. I have not worn much jewelry with this outfit as the velvet and the neckline were more than enough to make me stand out in the crowd, anything more would just look overdone.


The red stilettos give a new edge to the outfit, making it festive ready and classic.


This is, without doubt, a very well matched and appealing trend, tell us how you liked it and whether you are in the trend or out, in the comments section below!

Create the look:

Velvet Dress: Pantaloons (forever glam)

Stilettos: Fashionandyou.com

Silver bracelets: Globus

We will be back for the next 3 winter essentials,

Till then,

Lots of Love and Christmas greetings ♥

A Dramatic Cape Coat



Merry December Ladies!

I know it has been quiet from our end and that’s because I was really caught up between travelling, work, my birthday etc… but we vow to be more regular with your dose of fashion and provide the best fashion updates and trends.. With the winter chill we decided to share 5 essential winter fashion trends with you lovelies.. here we are with our first post from our 5 winter essentials… “A Dramatic Cape Coat


With the winter chill in the air and not only in the evenings, it is important to stay warm yet look trendy and in the quest to stay warm yet trendy I completely surprised myself by ordering a grey frill cape coat for myself and added an air of sophistication I never knew I had. A cape coat is something that is needed in your wardrobe when you want to stay warm but also make an attention-grabbing entrance. I styled my cape coat with my grey ruffle shirt since my cape had a ruffled collar, the look matched with my shirt and gave a majestic feel to my attire. Since I wore for an office outing I preferred to pair it up with black trousers and as I had to walk a lot I chose comfortable shoes to wear but these were not my first choice of shoes, certainly I would have paired it with my black pumps or boots.



Cape coats are an epitome of cloaked glamour (which I absolutely take advantage of and use to sashay through the streets) and is such an easy way to smarten up any outfit be it jeans, trousers, skirt or a dress. It is both very elegant and practical, it is bold and electrifying and completely enhances a look. When wearing a cape the perfect combination is pairing a dramatic cape with an evening dress or a well fitted trousers. Imagine an outfit with a long coat, instead of a cape – it has a completely different feel to it because a cape is unique while a coat is common. Here are a few tips to wear your cape coat with elegance if not worn correct way, you have the potential of looking like a superhero or a yeti.


How To Style A Cape Coat

  • When wearing a cape make sure the outfit underneath forms fitting.Wearing something loose or baggy underneath will completely take away all of your flair. You can’t wear a large loose cape over large loose clothes; you will completely lose your figure.
  • Keep it simple as capes already add glamour to your outfit
  • Since a cape is a classic, it’s best pearing it with other items, like a classic hand bag, high boots or pumps, stripe shirts, the list goes on.
  • Wearing a cape coat over a long sleeved outfit is always a great idea.


Superheroes wear capes. Henceforth capes are for super girls, of which I know you all are!

Have a great start to your week hotties! These are some of my few tips on how to style your cape coats or jackets. I would love to hear your thoughts on this style, and if indeed you are ‘team cape coat’ too!

Love Praghti

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 🙂

Lots of love

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

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.
