How to Dress Like Jess from New Girl?

Dress Like Jess!

Hello My Lovelies!

As you might have guessed from the the title, this post is about how you can dress like Jess Day from the TV show New Girl!

New Girl is a show which follows the live of Jess (played by the lovely Zooey Deschanel) a 20 something girl, who after a bad breakup with her boyfriend, ends up living in an apartment with 4 (earlier 3) male roommates after answering a “roommate wanted” ad on Craigslist!

The show follows Jess’ hilarious adventures of being the “New Girl” in an apartment full of men! It’s a funny show, with an equally lovable cast (Schmidt and Cece! Coach and Winston! and Nick! Come on these guys are so cute!)

Jess Day’s Style Diary

1. Bright Colors Are Your Friends!

Jess has a very peppy almost 1950’s inspired wardrobe filled with bright, happy, in-your-face colors (reds, blues, greens, yellows… you name it and the girl has got it)! So, if you wanna dress like Jess then you really need to stop shying away from bright colors! 🙂

2. Be a Pattern Lover / Embracer

Apart from being a girl who loves wearing bright colors, Jess has a penchant for sporting patterns! Stripes, Polka dots the girl has almost tried them all!

3. Cardigan and Ballet Flats are your Bae!

Jess LOVES wearing cardigans and ballet flats! She loves pairing cardigans with dresses and skirts. Same is her love affair with her ballet flats. I think Jess has Cardigans and Ballet Flats in almost every color imaginable!

4. Nerdy McPretty!

Jess is always seen rocking her cute, nerdy, adorkable pair of glasses with almost all of her looks on the show. If you wanna really nail Jess’s look then go rock a pair of faux glasses.

5. Retro Much

Yeah Jess, kinda has a knack for incorporating a healthy dose of retro vibes in her outfit, be it the bright colors, the bows, the polka dots, the belts, the hairbands! The girl has RETRO written all over her! Example: You can pair shorter fluffier skirt with ballet flats and a cute top + cardigan, or a nice pair of fitted high waist jeans with a feminine top, completed with a headband

7. Tights / Leggings

Another thing Jess loves to do is layer her clothes! She is often times seen rocking a dress with a pair of tights or a pair of shorts over a pair of stockings! Don’t be afraid to layer!

Mac Heroine Review + Lip Swatch!

IMG_4136-001

Hello My Lovelies!

How have you all been? I am currently experiencing the full effects of an Indian summer, and boy it’s hot here! As a result I have been craving ice lollies like crazy these past few days. Anyhoo! enough with the weather talk and on with the review 🙂

IMG_4224

The lipstick of the moment is Mac’s Heroine! You know every time I hear this lipstick’s name, The song from Kareena Kapoor’s movie “Heroine” (you can listen to it hereMain Heeeeroine hooooon (I am a heroine) starts playing in my head! Wouldn’t it be crazy/awesome if Mac lipsticks introduced themselves that way? Cue.. Main Ruby Woo hoooon, Main All Fired Up hoooon (no pun intended, okay, yeah intended :P)

But, I digress. Where was I? Yes, Mac’s Heroine. Below I’ve taken some photos of when I had the lipstick on.

IMG_4135-001 IMG_4139-001

(What am I thinking in the above photo? ~ Dude! These flowers are so fake! They’re Faux Flowers!)

IMG_4174-001

(Poked myself in the eye with the aforementioned “Faux Flowers”!)

IMG_4172-001IMG_4152-001

MAC HEROINE

1. Color

Mac Heroine is a bright violet/purple lipstick, on some it might even look like a red toned purple.

2. Finish

Heroine has “matte” written in the sticker below the lipstick tube, but really what it has is a creamy matte finish. It glides on effortlessly on the lips.

3. Coverage

It has a completely opaque color coverage. One swipe and the lipstick goes completely opaque. I usually swipe twice due to force of habit, but one swipe and the true color of the lipstick gets delivered on the lips.

4. Stay

On me the lipstick stays a good 5-6 hours before it starts to fade into a lovely red-ish purple-ish stain. The lipstick is neither drying nor hydrating.

5. Cost

It costs Rs. 1450 in India.

IMG_4241

THE GOOD

1. The lipstick glides on effortlessly on the lips.

2. It looks good when applied straight out of the tube as it is on the lips, but I also love wearing it as a stain, i.e. I apply the lipstick and then blot it down with a tissue to control the intensity of the color.

THE NOT SO-GOOD

1. When I applied this lipstick, I realized that it has a tendency to stick to dry/flaky patch on my lips. So, it’s really important to exfoliate your lips before you wear this lipstick.

Well that’s it for now! Namaste!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks ~ BLACKBERRY & BLACK CHERRY REVIEW + LIP SWATCH!

IMG_4198-004 Hello My Lovelies! Today I am going to be reviewing two lipsticks from Revlon that I have been obsessed with for the past 2 months! Seriously, I have been wearing these lipsticks almost non-stop! The lipsticks in question are Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipsticks in “Blackberry” and “Black Cherry”. IMG_4207-001

(Pictured above from the left: Blackberry & Black Cherry)

I had heard a lot about these lipsticks before I bought them, but whenever I tried searching for reviews or swatches of these two lipstick together online… my search always came up short! So, when I finally tried and tested these lipsticks, I thought I really should review these two lipsticks together!

BLACKBERRY

IMG_4198-005

IMG_4058-001IMG_4076-001IMG_4079-001IMG_4081-001

IMG_4083

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Blackberry” is a brick red lipstick with brown undertones. I have never really been a fan of brick red lipsticks, but this lipstick won me over! This lipstick is so soft, pigmented and it goes opaque in one swipe!

This lipstick is completely frost and shimmer free. I sometimes wear it straight out of the tube as it is, and other times I like to blot the lipstick down with a tissue to get a more muted-natural look. This lipstick lasts a good 4-5 hours on me, after that it does have a tendency to bleed a little, but even then it look nice!

My Rating ~ 4.5/5

BLACK CHERRY

IMG_4198-003

IMG_4094-001 IMG_4096-001 IMG_4101-001 IMG_4104-001 IMG_4116-002 Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Black Cherry” is a lipstick that makes you go “OH MY GOD” the moment you apply it.

I know It looks really dark in the tube, but when you apply this to your lips the color you get is a dark red with purple undertones. But, when I am not in the mood for sporting a dark bold lip, what I really love to do with this lipstick is to apply it and then blot it down, it leaves a gorgeous flushed, plum-ish stain on the lips!

This lipstick has no shimmer, and last for 4-5 hours. It’s a gorgeous lipstick that has quickly become one of my must-have lipstick!

My Rating ~ 4.75/5 IMG_4213-002 Both these lipsticks retail for Rs.550 each and I love them both! And yes, I purchased them with my own money and my opinions are as usual completely honest! Well, that’s it for now! As always send me some love! Follow, like and comment!

Who are you dressing for?

IMG_3904-001

“Who are you dressing for?” ~ 5 years ago I first asked this question to myself and 5 years later, even now from time to time I ask this question to myself.

Are we dressing for our boyfriends, girlfriends, our jobs, our family members, dressing to impress our crush, or are we simply getting dressed to “fit in”… to belong with a set of people?

What we really should be doing is to dress for our self, for the real “YOU”.

I know with dress codes, uniforms and office policies it is not feasible for all of you to dress for yourself everyday, but when you do get a chance.. you do YOU, dress in the manner which is inanely and completely you!

And for those of you who do have the luxury to wear whatever you damn well please… What’s stopping you? Whose voice is dictating YOUR style everyday?

I’ll tell you whose voice it should be.. ONLY YOURS!

IMG_3905-002

With the rise of social media, it is easy to fall in and “dress for an audience” to get a “like”, a “comment”, a “retweet”, a “follow”.

But, trust me the secret to great style is to feel good in what you wear.

Believe me, I know..

I had always loved wearing high heels! But, for a long time I didn’t wear them and just kept them in my closet for the sheer reason because I was afraid of what people might say if I wore them out in public.

But you know what I realized? That people will always talk! If I stop doing things that make me happy just ’cause log kya kahenge (what would people say) then I wouldn’t be able to get anything done. Stop thinking about what people might say if you change the way you dress, because at the end of the day you should do things which make you happy and give you joy!

Today, I wear my high heels proudly! Yes, people do look, they do talk.. but who cares? YOLO (You only live once)!

So, wear things which make you happy! You might get a stink eye from people here and there, murmured whispers and not-at-all-subtle check outs from the others. But you know what? That’s okay! It happens! No f***s given to them 🙂

Now go out there and BE YOU!

How to rock turquoise liner?

Hello My Lovelies! Are you tired of sporting the same old black liner day in and day out? Are you tempted to try a new color, but are scared to venture out of your comfort zone?

I’ll be the first one to admit that trying on a bolder eye liner can be daunting, especially is the colour is TURQUOISE. But, after I completed this look, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I ended up liking it!

IMG_3575-001 IMG_3576-001 IMG_3589 IMG_3601 IMG_3607 IMG_3611

~ Here’s a complete breakdown of this look ~

FACE

IMG_3626

1. POND’S All in One BB + Fairness Cream ~ I moisturized my face, then I applied this BB cream all over my face and neck.

2. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in “Honey” ~ I used this concealer under my eyes to cover any dark circles that were there. I also used this concealer on the bridge of my nose, on the top of my forehead and on my chin to highlight those areas.

3. Street Wear Color Rich Perfection Compact ~ Next, I used this compact to set my base makeup. I love this compact! This has been my go-to compact for the past 2 months. I have already hit pan on this compact!

4. Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in “Creamy Cinnamon” ~ I completed my base makeup by applying this blush lightly from the apples of my cheek to my temple.

EYES

IMG_3635

1. The Face Shop Design My Eyebrow ~ I started my eye makeup by filling in any gaps/spaces in my eyebrow with this retractable eyebrow pencil.

2. Maybelline Colossal Kajal (Turquoise) ~ Next, I applied this eye liner pencil as an eye shadow and used all over my eyelid, keeping the color just underneath the crease/fold of my eyes. I also used this pencil to line my lower lash line and my water line.

3. Lakme Shine Line Eye Liner (Black) ~ Then, I used this liquid liner to line my upper lash line. I also used this liner to draw a wing, so that it gives me a more “winged eye” look.

4. Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner (Black) ~ Next, I used this gel eye liner to go over the previously applied black liner. I did this to make the color look darker and bolder.

5. Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara (Washable) ~ I completed this look by applying 2 coats of this mascara on my upper lashes and one coat on my lower lashes.

I hope you guys liked this look 🙂
