Every girl wants to look good and wants a perfect dress made according to her size. While the normal sized get their dresses off the shelf but for a plus size person like me, it’s a struggle in itself. A perfect dress for me would be something that doesn’t only fit me well but is stylish too. Recently, I got to know about Samshék which played a genie to customise my dress according to my demands! Samshék not only gives quality, class & style but adds the comfort for the dress to be chosen by us in terms of length, style, colour, design and fabric.
A few days back I was invited to a world of floral prints, easy breezy outfits and colours which took me to vacation mode. Yes, that was a beautiful celebratory evening which was hosted by designer duo Anjalee & Arjun Kapoor to celebrate the showcase of the new resort collection Goddess of Spring 2017. The evening took place at 1 AQ, Anjalee & Arjun Kapoor store in Mehrauli.
Shoe Love is True Love– Anonymus
And that’s what our lady has in mind. We are talking about none other than Radhika Jain who is all set to take the shoe industry by storm. When I met her, the first question I asked her was why shoe designing? Why not fashion designing? The lady spoke about her affection with footwear and we can’t agree more! The young entrepreneur said ‘Ever since I came out of school, I had entrepreneurship in mind and wanted to venture into a creative field’. That’s when she went to London College of Fashion (Cordwainers), UK to learn footwear design from an international perspective. Even after coming to India, she continued to hone her knowledge on the peculiarities of footwear designing, and completed her post graduation in Footwear Technology from Footwear Design and Development Institute (FDDI), Noida and Mewar University respectively. She additionally learnt Online Retail for Fashion Business from LCF, UK. All of this education coupled with a rich practical work experience in India and Italy lent her the spirit to start on her own.
Being in plus size and always want to fit in the most loved jeans maybe your favourite one which has become tight and become the talk topic of the house trying to adjust to your figure flaws or body shaming, embarrassed & helpless scrutinizing sizes at the clothes store for the perfect fit but still you feel as if you were feather light & thin and for a food blogger like me who just cannot diet, life is not easy but full of fat bubbles & weight that comes with dozens & oodles adding that extra inch to my size.

Fashion is not only about donning great clothes but about style and comfort too. When we were asked to do a fashion post for Coolpad we were confused as to where to go! Somewhere there is style, somewhere there is comfort. It’s important to keep the fashion graph high but not at the stake of choosing between comfort and style.
With the forthcoming wedding season, we love to don the desi girl avatar and what’s more elegant than getting into the 9 yards to get into the perfect look. When I got married 2 yrs back, I went to the famous markets where shopkeepers would make you wear different sarees complementing you on your height, physique, completion etc. with the aim to make maximum sales. They would even make you eat the famous tikkis and chaat of their respective markets…Sounds fun? But this can be quite a ride with different hassles that come with it- parking, salesman being extra pushy and not getting the right pick for your look.
