Vero Moda, Only and Jack & Jones reside at a huge store on Linking Road between Santacruz and Khar. They invited me (Alice) to check out the store, review the current collection and indulge in some shopping. Of course, I had to take you peeps along on my shopping trip. Take a look at the stuff I tried and the stuff I finally bought. I’d also like to mention that as much fun as the experience was, it was so tiring to be a model. I don’t know how the skinny girls to do it. To try on at least 20 garments, pose and preen and look different each time is surely a task. Kudos to my photographer sister for delivering happy results.
One of the first pieces I tried was this ruffle dress with a tan belt. I loved the silhouette and found it’s flattering for my body type.
Another fun piece was this tunic in pink! Of course, the detailing in the back and the belt on the waist would flatter a slim body type unlike mine. Somehow, I made it work. You like?
The brown top with a lace neck and back paired with a sling bag was my favourite combination. The top has an extremely flattering shape and cut and the sling bag has the best floral vintage print. Pair them together and you could rock a ‘city girl’ look.
This shirt blouse in a white could be a great addition to your wardrobe. You could wear it to a lunch date, a formal meeting or simply pair it with a skirt and wear it to the movies. So versatile!
Accessories could add that what was missing to an outfit. These chunky bangles would go well with any neutral outfit.
I have to admit this was one of my least favourite tries. The reason I’m sharing it with you is so you recognize that even though you may love the colour of an outfit, if it’s unflattering and uncomfortable on you, it’s not meant for you. Move on to the next.
