Apart from regularly following, interacting with and of course, taking a shot at the goodies on offer, we adore MissMalini for the range of goodies and ingenuity of contests on the blog! Well done!

This contest comes with this gorgeous Gehna Jewellers' (Gehna Jewellers on Twitter) Pendant as prize:





Instantly fell in love with this infinity-stretched-to-a-heart beauty with its gleaming diamonds & the stunning center amethyst which appears to be an unusual hexagon cut with translucent clarity! wow!

A thing of beauty is a joy forever -so decided to create my entry to commensurate with the beauty of the contest!  Worked hard investing time over 4 days and here is the result: hope you enjoy this journey of fashion & fusion.

Choosing a wide range of outfits that I would wear with this pendant.  Given its celebratory nature, choosing many outfits that can conveniently be worn for occasion wear.  

My Entry:

I have come up with this blog and a dedicated Pinterest Board to support my entry (made vide a comment on MissMalini's blog vide the aforesaid link), so we may visualize the splendor:

My Entry to the Shoppers Stop "Perfect Look" Contest

My Entry to the Shoppers Stop "Perfect Look" contest in association with Indiblogger.in:

Hi Folks, such a delight of a contest from Shoppers Stop - One has to pick one's favorite apparel & accessories from  www.shoppersstop.com and put together an ensemble that’s the perfect look for This festive season. The most stylish look stands a chance to win some exciting prizes!


The sheer variety & depth of what is available on Shoppers Stop's website just fired up my imagination and my entry is below:


I am calling this look the 'Strawberry and Cream Chic' - equipped to attend a full work day and yet glide straight in to a Christmas and New Year Party thereafter ;-) Sufficiently formal & yet fleetingly casual ;-)

This look is for a young at heart, vibrant, energetic, global, new age fashionista - someone for whom 'festive' is not 'decked up' but yet stylish, classy & very individualistic! 

Let me deconstruct this look:

1. The Outfit:


This is an Allen Solly Ladies Wrap Dress in the oh-so-in "Colour Block" trend.  Find the dress here: http://www.shoppersstop.com/cat-Special-Deals-Womens-Topwear-Allen-Solly-Ladies-Wrap-Dress-262-331182-9007282.html

Comes in comfortable polyester with side pockets, a v neck & very distinctly stylish wrap design. 

2.  The Earrings:


Going with a no neck wear but very stylish earrings for this outfit.  This pair of Diamond Earrings from Carbon with its pearl accent is just made for this outfit.  Subtle, classy & very elegant for a lady! Find the earring here: http://www.shoppersstop.com/cat-Special-Deals-Womens-Fine-Jewellery-Earrings-Carbon-Diamond-Earring--FHE21810-262.html

6.  The Footwear:


Splendid Haute Curry footwear for a gal with spring in her feet - the floral pattern with embellished sequins just up the 'festive' appeal tremendously.  Hip, hop, skip, jump - that's what hearts will do as you strut your stuff!  Find this dream pair here: http://www.shoppersstop.com/cat-Special-Deals-Womens-Footwear-HAUTE-CURRY---Sandals-262-334022-8116762.html#
