The magic comes from within.

See I told you I will be back soon?

Hi-ilicious amazing people who are super sweet to me all the time, 
A huge hello that was or what? Anyway I am back with another outfit. In a row? Bazinga. Yes, lately I've stopped being so much of a lazy bum and started actually doing such things. 

*Awkward pause*

One often made statement is that asymmetrical shirts/tops cannot be worn by people on the heavier side. But I completely disagree. Give me a challenge like that and I'll rock it and show you that you are wrong. A little challenge worker I am. 

How to work the asymmetrical trend?

1. Asymmetry has become a huge rage and a fast setting trend in the past few months and everyone wants to wear it. Luckily, all body types can carry this off absolutely well. 
2. When in doubt, reassure yourself about the fact that you can make anything look good and you will be good to go. 
3. You can go for an asymmetrical top like I have, or an asymmetrical skirt (available at Zara, Mango etc)
4. When working the trend, always remember to try and make sure your accessories go with the clothing that you are wearing. 
5. Avoid wearing palazzo pants or wide legged pants with asymmetrical tops, and avoid long tops with asymmetrical skirts. 
6. Choose a hairstyle which you feel makes you look amazing and rocking the trend. 

Outfit post:
Details after the pictures

Top: Boutique (Bangalore)
Pants: Boutique (Bangalore)
Bag: c/o Craftsvilla (Read about it HERE)
Necklace: Splash, Bangalore
Golden bracelet: Streets
Golden cuff: Commercial street (seen HERE)
Shoes: c/o American Apparel (HERE)

The outfit was put together for a day out, a lunch, some shop visiting, etc. The black asymmetrical top was paired with the paint splattered pants. This would be a very simple look if not for the accessories. Hence concluding that accessories can make or break and outfit. 

The bag is from Craftsvilla and it is  Jim Morisson Jute tote that not only is amazing for college, but also a perfect choice this season. It comes with a zip on the top and a tiny compartment that adds to its awesomeness. It fit all my things inside, because it is quite huge right?

The cuff and necklace were what I particularly added to jazz the outfit. The statement necklace has been a personal favourite for a long time now and I can add it to almost every outfit of mine which makes it all the more cool. 

The shoes. Ah, these shoes. The amount we walked that day was crazy. And I am so glad I wore this shoe because it is not only cushiony but also very pretty. Quite a lot of people were asking me where I got it from. Even the restaurant lady, so you'll definitely get a lot of compliments and it doubles up because of the plus one comfort. You have got to have one of these for yourself from American Apparel. They not only have a great range of products but are very affordable and if you pay an extra buck they make sure that it is totally worth it. Extremely fabulous service and quick delivery. 

That's pretty much it about the outfit.



Now I'm leaving you with a little something I was thinking about lately. 

' We meet so many people everyday. People enter our lives and they go, some remain, some cut off, but what makes these things happen? Is it a power, or is it from within. Why do we make the choices that we do? Why do we take the steps that we do? What changes the course of our life? Maybe there is magic after all. But then again, I believe that the magic comes from within you ' 

And that my friends is the reason some people succeed and others don't. It all depends on what you believe in.

Yourself or others?
