How To Take Your Linen Saree From Office to Durga Puja

Have you ever landed in a situation, where you need to run to a puja or attend a traditional gathering like Navratri, dandiya night from the office? I have come up with a solution wherein touch of Indian jewelry, change in the drape of your saree can make you festive ready.

First look:

I have taken a linen saree because I think linen sarees look so cool for office, they can be worn and maintained for long hours in the office and they make you look so elegant and classy. In the first look, I have simply worn a peach linen saree with minimal jewelry. I have carried it very normally like we all do it normally.

I have given that edginess by adding big silver jhumka and bangles and tying a top bun. I think one can carry this look very easily. Swap your nude lipstick with a bold color and big bindi and you are ready to go.

I have given an extra twist to my linen saree. I have just changed the pallu from left to right. I have paired this saree with a kalamkari blouse which I have taken from Ajio and saree I have taken from Afna Linen Sarees.

I have just crossed my pallu beneath the shoulder layer and it’s all set. This is a much edgier look, looks very elegant and you got to rock it with lots of confidence.

Let me know in the comment section whether you liked these looks or not. Oh! just to tell you because I am wearing a high-collared blouse I have kept a top bun. Bun helps in creating a definition around the neck and highlights your earring and also adds an edge to your saree.

You can find linen sarees here and blouse here.

What to shop and what not to from Studio West – Westside

You all must be familiar with the Westside ‘s Studio West – their beauty joint. If you are used to visiting Westside then you must have bought few things from the Studio West. It happened to me also, I tried their almost all the products and here I am listing down what you must buy from Studio West and what you should not.

  1. Bath and body range:

You can buy their body lotions, shower gel, soaps, scrubs etc. Everything is good looking at prices of the products. You can blindly shop these products.2. Perfumes:

They have perfumes for male and female both. In this, they have a lot of fragrances and like I said earlier after wasting my money I have zeroed down to 2-3 items which are good for you. Females can try their Urban Muse, Maya while the males can try their Urban Spirit. These are the only fragrances which last for long hours. I have stocked my 3rd bottle of Muse and on me, fragrance stays for good 12 hours.

3. Lipsticks :

Don’t pick their Pure Passion collection, it doesn’t stay and keeps on smudging if you really want to pick a lipstick then go for Dynamite. This collection is really good with good lasting power. Opt for Dynamite collection for Nailpaints and lipsticks.4. Foundation :

Their foundations are really suitable for Indian skin tone, so you can pick from here only if you don’t find anything of your skin tone in Maybelline.

5. Eye Make-up:

You can opt for eye shadow palette and colored eye liners, they have really cool colors. Other than this do not go for mascara it doesn’t really do much to your eye lashes.

My take – you can go for fragrances (mainly EDP), bath and body products only.
