Hi Karish -
I need your advice about finding a Mother of the Bride dress. I want a dress that has sleeves, beaded bodice but not too sexy. Everything I see online is for a hot 30 year old, size 5 model. I'm a size 16 grandma! I also want to spend no more than $250. Does this kind of dress exist in the fashion district?
I have also thought of buying a beaded top in Little India and having a matching skirt made. I appreciate any and all suggestions.
I have come up with some options for you. While the fashion district does have bridal stores, I don't know that it would suit your needs.
Option 1- Pant Suit with Custom Wrap
Option 2- Dress Options
Option 3- Ethnic Influence Dress
Hope this helps!! Good Luck!
I'm sure you guys can tell by my pictures that I don't really like to spend a lot of time editing. All I ever really do is add more light (exposure) and some cropping.. but PicMonkey offers a lot of options for free (and even more if you pay)
Literally, without services like PicMonkey, bloggers like me or maybe only me would seriously fail to exist. #ilovepicmonkey
Kimonos are kind of like a shawl with sleeves, as a desi we use shawls as outerwear regularly... which is probably what attracted to me them in the first place! Why I did't start wearing these earlier??? Not only are they chic but, they are the perfect solution for when you don't have that shirt that's long enough to cover your ass in your sheer leggings but don't want to wear a jacket (this is a common problem for me).
They look chic in the day time, the night time & adds a little spice to your outfit. After figuring this out (I know I'm late) I have stocked up on them in 5 or 6 different patterns. When I went shopping with my friend she was like "Girrrrrl I been the queen of Kimonos, where have you been??"
And I also replaced my black boots with these new thigh high flat ones. I'm obsessed with them! I wear them out, to work, happy hours everywhere. They are also warm in this freezing cold LA weather.

Do you have a pair of boots that you love & refuse to give away? This Christmas was the 5 year mark of having and using these black boots. I mean I loved them so much that it was my excuse to not buy any new ones.
This day in Santa Monica, it was deceivingly sunny.. Meaning that it was sunny out but it was cold, hence the long skirt a necessary reason for the boots.
Wearing my 5-year old boots to the beach was not necessarily a mistake, but it was something that I should have thought twice about because the sand ruined my fave. boots and forced me to buy new ones!
As you can see, no one was there (because it was cold)... but... at least it wasn't raining
My friend was in LA on her yearly work trip, was staying in Santa Monica and insisted on going to the beach.
It was a really pretty day, and a great day with my friends so I can't really complain. After all, it's the memories we create with those who love us that matter not the material things in life. RIGHT?

Hey Ranis & Rajas! Hope you had a great New Years!!
A couple years ago, my friend & I discovered that it doesn't really matter what venue we go to, it matters what music is played. Music is something we love & wouldn't give up for a nicer venue! Normally, we end up going to places where the crowd is older than us & the location is obscure (and this year was no different).
Hey, at least we get to see new places! Right?!?
My bralette actually came as a set..but I feel like sets are so worn out these days. I stayed away from sparkles (mainly because I couldn't find anything grown & sexy/ in my budget).
I decided, instead, to wear a chic set of mixed prints to ring in the new year!
