“How wonderful Yellow is. It stands for the Sun.”

Vincent Van Gogh

Although not one for such bright hued dresses, I was pleasantly surprised with the final outcome, when I wore this outfit for a “Red Carpet” themed party some time ago.

When I went to my friend’s boutique store (5 days before the event :P), I had a “Mustardy” yellow in mind. But she convinced me to not go with the conventional color choice, instead with this vibrant shade of yellow.

And boy, was she right!

I felt all glamorous & dolled up for the fun evening yet comfortable enough to dance the night away. The pop of color was enough to keep the hair & makeup, understated.

I borrowed these exquisite emerald & diamond earrings from my sister and plan to wear them 10000073373 times before I return them (girls who have sisters understand this sentiment very well).

Also plan to wear the dress very soon for a family wedding albeit with different accessories. Maybe with a diamond polki choker for an “indo-western”  &  “weddingy” vibe.

A dance party calls for the most comfortable pair of shoes. Having said that, I DO love my heels!  I think they really add to the style quotient of an outfit & make you feel statuesque, instantly.

I wore these sleek Topshop sandals with a metal block heel. Stylish yet not the “need a foot massage the next morning” variety.

Sometimes it’s good to break stereotypes. To have a fresh perspective on fashion & on life.

To choose a yellow over a black for a formal do. Or wear a black on black outfit during the day.

Or even a little white dress for an evening cocktail party.

Why follow fashion rules? Why not make your own?

Why not carry everything with sass, aplomb & big smile plastered across your face :-)
