Striped Maxi with Orange

Hi my beautiful friends!!!
Believe it or not the inspiration of this outfit came from the earrings I am wearing! Can you imagine it is only for $2.88 from Walmart? As soon as I saw it in the store I had to grab it! 
The crochet tunic top I am wearing here is almost 8 years old! It is from Debenhams, UK! I dragged it out and washed and wore just so I can wear my new earrings with it!
The following is the description of the look:
Black and white striped Maxi dress and on top the orange tunic together with a belt! For hair, I did my favorite and my go-to messy-bun, for makeup I had my eyes done; you will find a tutorial of similar eye makeup here and used an orange lipstick! Yes, it is an orange lipstick, though it looks different in the pictures here.

Blue Camouflage: Saree as Outfit of the Day

Hi Beautiful Friends!!!
Hope everyone is doing great! After long time, I got to wear a saree! If you follow thedocndiva from the beginning, you already know how much I love to wear saree! Anyway, when I got a chance to wear one again last weekend, I went all out. I did my eyes, my makeup and of course, I took my time to get ready! Yes! it takes time guys... a lot, specially wearing the saree part! 
So, this is a chanderi saree! I bought it from India last year! Last diwali, when I went to India, it was totally in trend. However, when it comes to Saree, I go with my hunch, rather than what's in. Still I like this sarees a lot and bought two!

Don't you like to dress up and look beautiful? We all do! Although, we all are beautiful in our own way, it does not hurt to brighten our beauty with few makeup products!

Shout out to Glamour Gals: A Guest Post

Hi Beautiful!!!
Hope everyone is doing great! Today's post is going to be one of a kind! Few days ago, I was approached by one of the "thedocndiva" readers, who wanted to do a guest post regarding an extraordinary initiative, called "Glamour Gals". After reading her mail, I could not wait to publish the post to let you all know more about the Glamour Gals!! 

A little about Glamour Gals: it is a non-profit that uses make-up and beauty to connect women across generations. Every month, Glamour Gals, who are essentially college and high school students meet up with women living in Senior homes, in order to give them makeovers. It is a great experience for both the Seniors and the students that participate.

Trend Alert: Yellow

Hi Beautiful!
If you have read our last post, you already know about what's "in" this summer. And you also know, Yellow is totally in trend. Although, wearing yellow could be intimidating at times, pairing it with something earthy can be easy to pull off! If you love to wear color, I would say you must give it a try this summer! There are so many shades of yellow available, you just have to find one that suits the best on you! If you are lucky, more than one yellow shades could be your color too!

Regarding this look, I styled this leopard print hi-lo dress (old one) with a lemon yellow cardigan. To give it more informal look, and to have more yellow touch,  I also added a yellow sunglass! Makeup and accessory were minimum.
