Work-wear: Black and White

Samosa POP presents Work-wear Mondays

Going to work is the hardest on Mondays. After a relaxing weekend, sometimes it gets tough to roll out of bed when all you want to do is kill the alarm clock and snuggle under the sheets. When you finally do get out of the bed, with barely anytime left to get dolled up, it seems to be one of the toughest tasks to decide what to wear. So here is my attempt to tackle this challenge and help start your Monday fashionably. I prefer my work looks simple and classic. But, trends are not just for off-hours. You can easily sneak in some current trends into your work outfit. To avoid an unhappy call from HR, keep the focus on one trend at a time and the look minimalistic.

Holiday Style Inspiration : Thanksgiving – Casual Red dress

Are you ready for this holiday season? Dressing for Thanksgiving can be tricky. It is important to dress in an outfit that is cute and comfortable enough to enjoy that extra slice of pie. Even if your family has a casual style, it’s a holiday and you still want to look a little nicer than normal. In light of the goblets of wine and heaping plates of turkey to be enjoyed, here is an outfit idea not too casual, not too fussy, and just right for Turkey Day. Check back for more holiday style inspiration this week. #HolidayFashionRed coat x SP 2 Red is the perfect color for the holidays. It gives this comfortable jersey dress, a festive flair. Pair this cozy dress with a matching coat for a chic & relaxed outfit which is way more cheerful than just a jeans and a sweater. You are all set to take on the big (long) family dinner. I opted for a simpler look here, but a monochrome canvas, also gives a chance to wear your favorite jewels.  See my last year’s Thanksgiving style here (more red dresses). Continue reading

This look is brought to you by my partnership with an online retailer called Zaful – they work with many independent designers for a really eclectic and well curated selection of clothes and accessories. I love that they give a platform for creatives to sell their designs on a large scale. If you are looking for a variety designs at a reasonable price point, I highly suggest checking out their website. They have such an elaborate collection of unique pieces I had the toughest time picking out a dress when shopping.

Mixing textures

Mix x SP Mixing prints and textures is a versatile trick that creates an updated look for every season. This fall & winter season, layer up delicate fabrics like lace with a faux-leather blazer for a weather friendly and chic outfit. Mixing different textures makes a unified layered look which pulls the whole outfit together. Continue reading

Holiday Style Inspiration : 1 dress, 2 ways

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  A printed jersey dress is perfect for the family holiday this fall season. I anticipate it to be comfortable and cute when my mom insists I have an extra slice of that awesome pie. Here I am styling two looks that can work for a casual get together or a dressy dinner party. These looks can easily be worn day to night. I am excited to sport the casual look with the flared converted-skirt in the day. It will be a fun time watching the Thanksgiving parade with the family. And then quickly dress it up for the holiday dinner party in the evening. I hope these looks put a spring in your step in this chilly weather and get you excited for the holiday indulgence coming up next week.

Ever since I set eyes on this beautiful gold watch from Timex, I knew it will be my go-to ‘it’ accessory this holiday season. This watch adds just the right amount of bling to any outfit. I love the rich gold color and the attention to detail in the design. I was surprised to discover that it is not very heavy and sits comfortably on my wrist.
