Dramatic Sleeves Trend

There's just something about the dramatic sleeve that I can't shake! It's considered a recent trend - but with all fashion, there's always recycling. You can find dramatic sleeves in all shapes, sizes and silhouettes throughout history. A part of me loves that we can rock a vibe that was once frowned upon in the decade of all time fashion lows (00s, IMO). Instead, we're embracing vibes from past decades (and even centuries).

Exaggerated sleeves give a whole new dimension to an outfit, and allow for creative styling. I decided to style this white piece with more neutrals (of course) to draw attention to the sleeves and keep everything else chic and simple, while playing with different textures.

Ain't Nobody Like a Desi Girl (ft. India Boulevard)

When I first decided to get this lehenga for my cousin's wedding reception, I knew I'd heard about India Boulevard before, but finally took the plunge! It was so worth it.

From the service and communication to the efficiency and quality, I couldn't have been happier with my outfits! This is just one of them, which I decided to style in 3 different ways. 1 - Traditionally, 2 - with my crop top & choker, and 3 - with my fave culottes.

The process was quite simple:
A: Pick your style (lehenga, anarkali, etc.)
B: Set your price range, set your date
C: Customize any details (this can be an ongoing process with the stylist/assistant, who is available on phone, WhatsApp and Live Chat)
D: Confirm your order and measurements
E: Await your precious arrival!

Ekta, who helped me out with my purchase, was super receptive to all my customization needs (super high maintenance when it comes to the perfect color combos, swatches, and patterns). I was so stoked to see my off shoulder blouse come to life, and more importantly, for everything to fit me like a glove. I seriously recommend them, and sometimes they are accommodating with dupatta needs, color swaps, and even the timeline.

Coveting Camel

Overcoats and longline coats are so versatile and fun to play around with in fall and spring months; perfect for those sort of cold but still warm enough days. I don't have the exact links to all these, but the camel long-line vest is from boohoo, and the rest (literally the pants, sweater, velvet crossbody) are from Forever21. You can snag the shoes at H&M or honestly any store that has the flat sneaker trend - I'd try Aldo as well. Scroll down for more links and similar products; happy shopping!
