Valentines Day Look Ideas: Day 3, Simple Things


I hope you guys have been enjoying the looks ideas I've been posting for Valentines. You can see the first two posts here and here. I thought it would be a good idea to do a classic valentine's outfit. This dress always makes me think of an extra romantic date with candles and candies. I decided to show this dress because its such a pretty piece that can work well for both day and night. A candle light date or a fine dining lunch booking, this works in both settings. I styled it for a daytime look but swap the block heels for stilettos and the sunglasses for a sequinned bag, and you're all set for a party.

Pink Slip Dress: Rs. 300, Linking Road
Red Belt: About Rs. 250, Globus, A present from a friend actually
Upside Down Sunglasses: Rs. 300, Quikr
Watch: Borrowed from Best Friend (pretty much permanently ;) )
Nude Block Heels: Rs. 600, Borivali

Total Outfit Cost: Rs. 1450, which is around ₤14.

I added the red statement belt for giving the dress a little structure kept the look minimal and just added my new 3 Mad Chicks bag to add a little color. Honestly, I seem to be taking this piece everywhere! I like how the technicolor print makes it compatible with almost every outfit I decide to wear. And surprisingly, it is extremely spacious. I've managed to fit in all my usual stuff (sunglasses, lip balm, money purse) as well as a bottle of water and my latest read (A Ruskin Bond compilation which is absolutely lovely!). Other than that, I didn't even get time to run a comb through my hair before the shoot, so please excuse the messy hair! Another thing I'd like to add is that, while I bought this dress in a store, its extremely easy to make. See the DIY idea below. I'll try to include a video tutorial in a future post. You can always ask me if you have any questions.

DIY for making a similar Dress: 
  • Get a simple long slip in the color you like. 
  • Find an old dupatta or any chiffon cloth that goes with the color of the slip. 
  • Cut the dupatta in half and drap it on the slip so that it crosses at the front. 
  • Stich the dupatta at the ends at the shoulder and the bottom of the slip.
  • A simply shift dress with an interesting drape is all ready!!
