Beach essentials 2.0

04a4d906-d6b4-4f2c-a48b-260b2914fa98

Summer is basically beach time! I love the weekends because I can spend all day relaxing at a beach.

I covered beach essential in the past but I thought I should come up with a new list that has lesser items and easy to carry.

The most important item on this list is sunscreen- I don’t need to say why!!

Second most important item is water to help me stay hydrated.

Then comes bugs spray, because born fires are fun but it’s not comfortable getting home with bites all over.

Beach sand gets ever where, it’s always important to have clean hands, hence my next item is sanitizer. The last thing on my list is wet wipes, i find it very beneficial because it helps me keep my face and neck fresh and clean every time I break a sweat or feel the summer heat.

You can always add more to your beach bag! I carry a beach towel and sunglasses or hat!

What would you carry in your beach bag?

Summer Dress!

Taking my summer looks to the next level!

I was tired of seeing the same style of dresses everywhere so I decided to make a summer dress.

This white dress was created keeping in mind that it could be used for multiple occasions and could be carried from day to evening!

Its is designed to be a summer dress that’s elegant but at the same time casual. You can dress it up with heels and a led lip or dress it down with sneakers and a cap!

This dress is at an unusual  length, it’s long but not too long and the fabrics used are net and cotton to give it that peekaboo effect! It’s a straight fit that defines the body in a good way!

It’s light, breezy and comfy!

Thigh’s the limit!

Thigh’s the limit

So this blog post is about three looks for three or maybe four different occasions with the main pieces being my thrifted purple floral print jacket dress from Toronto, Canada and my thigh high animal printed boots which I found long time ago at a boutique in Manipur, India.

So post is called thigh high because the whole idea for all these looks is to accentuate the thigh’s. The weather here in Toronto is getting less colder so I thought of doing looks suitable for this weather.

Wearing a jacket/ blazer dress can be tricky but if you dress it right there is a lot you can do with them. My looks are all about giving warm feels and fall vibes.

The first look i tried to keep it simple, just the purple jacket/blazer dress buttoned down with my boots and my hair in a pony tail. You can add a belt if you like or a statement neckpiece or earrings. This look is more versatile and can be used for various occasions maybe a party or a fancy event or even to a club. This look can go from a day event to a night out!

The second look is a bit more on the casual side. It can be a brunch kinda look or something to wear during the day. When it’s not too hot not too cold outside this look is perfect, not to dressy and easy. I wore the jacket dress as an over coat over an oversized suede shirt from Forever21 and finished the look with my boots.

The third look is more for when your going out for a cocktail party with your gals! You could say it’s an evening look. I wore the jacket dress buttoned down with the boots and just added this really amazing oversized black blazer I had from Forever21. This look is more on the sophisticated classy side.

Let me know what you think about these looks! 

And what I should post about next?!

Formal wear by nikkifostina

Finally my blog post on formal wear is up!

I know everyone’s bored of the same type of look when it comes to formal wear. 

So I thought why not have fun with it, look unique and switch it up a bit!

This striped two piece co-ordinate is one of my designs which I am so happy to share with you guys!

It’s a long length jacket and I high waisted Capri pant.

 

f34d8af6-ea66-469b-8a51-6e398893eb11

I used a material that has good stretch specially because the trousers are high waisted. I like co-ordinates and I decided to make something formal but unique, with a touch of my style!

You can find co-ordinates or sets like these in various online shops and in store. 

I paired this co-ordinate with a simple white strappy top by Halogen that I bought from Nordstrom.

It’s simple and doesn’t steal attention from the stripes!

I accessorized this look with a dark green steady purse which I got from forever 21 to bring in a bit of colour to the look and high heels By Steve Madden which I got from Aldo. Normally women prefer wearing comfortable footwear but I wanted to ice this look that bold and wow factor! 

Overall I feel this look is classy and I really enjoyed putting it together!

Shine!

I love posting something different and new every time.

I always experiment with new styles and love to have fun with fashion. 

I don’t really have a particular style but I know I like anything that represent being effortless and trendy. 

I really never post a lot on party looks but a friend was asking for advise on clubbing outfits alot lately, so I thought why not do a blog post on that, which I call shine! 

So I came up with this look, it’s shiny but also and combination of fancy with a bit of kinky touch to it. 

22e6b1f2-a9ee-40d5-8549-8d632076b02f

I paired this lovely Zara gleaming wrap dress with a few sparkly neck pieces, an ethnic choker like necklace that I picked up while street shopping on my trip to India is my special touch. I like mixing and matching ethnic with western. I put my fav shade of red by Dior and I finished the whole look with my catwalk pumps to give it that pop of colour.

This look is all about looking and feeling boujee this fall within a budget.
We don’t really need expensive items to put together an amazing outfit it’s good to have statement pieces in your wardrobe but at the same time even affordable brands can make us look fabulous !
We can find a lot of trendy and high end looking pieces at affordable and fast fashion clothing stores.
It’s time to pull out all out warm and cozy pieces for this season. I love a good sweater but what I feel like I always struggle when I have to get in and out of places. Whenever I wear a sweater or something warm I start to feel hot or itchy when I get in doors.
Specially when I want to go out with friends or for a party I like to wear something sexy and light.
I like wearing a bodysuit or a crop top or maybe a camisole and I pair it up with a really heavy jacket or a faux fur coat! I use to layer but that is too much work when you have take them off any way once your inside.

Faux fur coat- Forever21
Pleather crop top- Zara
Booties- Urban Planet
Denim – H&M
Purse- Kate spade

 

I like over sized coats and mixing them up with dark coloured  bottoms. I love booties and this one in particular is my favourite because I the hell height is perfect and the opening at the ankle is not too short or too long which I what always a problem for me.
…and you can complete the look with a sleek pulled back hair
I like to leave my hair open but you can pull it back into a bun for a more sleek and chic look!
You can also add on some dainty Jewellery maybe a neck piece or a ring. I usually just add my gold necklace and a simple ring!

Leave a comment down below and let me know if you would like me to do a  fall/winter look book 👍🏻 As a blog post !?!

Enjoying the fall colours !!
Decided to have a picnic with some of my friends at Christie Pits park. The weather was good and the leafs looked beautiful. I had an amazing Sunday.
Casual with a kink!
I put on something light and breezy. I also wore my Prada Slip ons to add some colour to my outfit. I loved the overall look with the oversized white shirt, my statement sunglasses and the bright pink slip-ons, my closet is filled with greys and dark colours so I thought I should go bright this fall!
