Mart of China - shoe heaven!!!

I have mentioned before that given my petite size, getting clothes in my size is a bit difficult. Well, getting shoes in my size is even more difficult! All the pumps that I own currently have been bought in Japan and have insoles :-(

At least in Japan, I got pumps that I could use with insoles. In India, it is impossible! All that I can get are slip-ons, and those too are a bit big.

So obviously I have been searching the net for websites that have shoes in my size. And I hit jackpot a few days back with ...........

martofchina is a Chinese wholesaler which carries gorgeous shoes in all sizes, including mine! They carry pumps, sandals, wedges, flats, boots ... basically any kind of shoes that you could ask for. And the best thing, they are at wholesale prices. So very cheap!

I have been browsing their shoes catalogue and have put up my wish list below (all below $20!).

Which shoes do you think are the best?

And that is not all! The third scoop of the ice-cream (you know how much I love ice-creams ;-)) is that martofchina also carries men's and women's clothes, jewellery, lingerie, bags, accessories and cosplay clothing, again at wholesale prices! And the website has frequent sales so that you could get your desired items at even cheaper prices. What more can one ask for?!!

So I have also put a wish list of bags - from funky to elegant to cute!

If you want to see their entire collection, do visit their website (just click on the name) and let me know which ones you liked :-)

I visited the eFoxcity website today and was fascinated by the products on offer there. The website offers a rich variety of clothes and accessories to suit every budget!

eFoxcity offers everything from evening dresses to prom dresses under $100. It also offers clothing for men.  So not only can you shop for yourself but also for your other half ;-)

I fell in love with so many dresses on the website. Below are the pics of some of the gorgeous dresses available at eFoxcity. I was very pleasantly surprised to see that the website also offered beautiful formal wear for both men and women. 

And to round it off, eFoxcity offers lovely, affordable jewellery to make a complete gorgeous outfit that will turn heads.

So have you visited eFoxcity?

Outfit of the Day - its a Wrap!

Today is Raksha Bandhan. This festival celebrates the relationship between a brother and sister. Translated literally, it means Bond of protection. In this festival, the sister ties a rakhi (holy thread) around her brother's wrist and the brother gives a gift in return. With this ceremony, the brother also vows to protect his sister :) I love this festival because of the love it celebrates between a brother and his sister/s.

Hubby's sister came over on Sunday to tie rakhi cause she would be busy in office today. Afterwards, we took her out for an evening of fun. We sure had a blast!

Coming to the topic of the post, I wore a wrap around skirt for the outing. The wrap around skirt in the below outfit is quite old, but I love the colour and design of the skirt. I paired the skirt with a black tee and some matching jewellery and I was good to go!

Do let me know what you think of my OOTD. And do you like wrap around skirts?

Outfit of the Day - casual again

So this is another casual outfit. I got the top from GAP on impulse because I liked the colour. But I was not sure how I would style it because of the uneven hem. I had planned to get the hem altered and make it even. But then I paired it with tights and loved the casual and comfy look.

So the top remains uneven :)

Let me know what you think of my OOTD!

Outfit of the Day - Traditional Again

Today's outfit of the day consists of items from the recent sale haul.

As lamented before, getting traditional clothes in my size is next to impossible. Till date, all my traditional clothes (except the kurta from this post) have been stitched. So it was a pleasant surprise when I came across a kurta in XXS at Global Desi which fit! Also, I found churidars (leggings) which also fit!

And another discovery - the kurta and churidars are so comfortable! This was like having a triple scoop of my favorite ice-cream :)

Anyways, I wore this outfit to office and found it to be super comfy and stylish at the same. What more can one ask for?

So do you like my OOTD? (And yes, I am standing on the sofa in the last pic, just cause I felt like it :-p)

PS: Please ignore my hair. Humidity in the rainy season makes my hair curl and poof :-(

Kurta & leggings - Global Desi, Bag - Rhysetta

Sale haul!

Yes, I am back with another haul :)

July is sale season, and I of course have to shop in sale! Right? Right!

What I have realized about shopping during sales is that you need to hit the stores within the first week, max the second week, of sale. Else most of the good stuff and many of the sizes are gone. And given my extra petite size, I try and make it during the first sale weekend so that I get enough choice in my size :)

So below are the pics from my sale haul. All the purses have been gifted by my mom (isn't she terrific? :)). So you know where I get my shopping gene from - ;-)

(All the prices stated are the discounted prices)

Necklace - Globus - INR400
Earrings - Fashion at Big Bazaar (FBB) - INR185 per pair
Which is your favourite earring?
Purses (gifted by mom)
Blue one - Rhysetta - INR1,495
Yellow one - INR1,395

 Blue sling bag - Espelho - INR1,500
Green one - Espelho - INR2,300
Top - Mango - INR790
Dress - Mango - INR2,380
Kurta - Global Desi - INR650
I also bought leggings with this which are not pictured here for INR350

So did you like my sale haul? What did you shop for during the sales?
