Blackbelle: Rosegal

Hello Beautiful

So much to talk about obviously because I was MIA. August, the thirteenth: as scary as the number sounds, it was my birthday that day and I wore a black slip dress ;)! I don't believe that 13 is unlucky for me or for anyone. Whatever sheer coincidence happens with this number, it brings beautiful pages for memories to be made.


So my friends and I decided to visit the pink city of India, Jaipur. As you can see from the pictures below, everywhere you look you can find artistic inspiration. Stone walls, pillars, doors, palaces or even cafes of this place have some history behind it. No wonder, photographers and soon-to-be-wed couples come here for photoshoots or even get married!

The dress- I wanted to wear a maxi dress for my birthday this time. Was looking for something- a color or style, I don't have. After full 2 days of research online & offline (btw, found only one Forever New dress which I liked but it was insanely expensive! Anyone else thinks they are over-priced?) ; I narrowed it down to two dresses. This and another in burgundy lace with boat neck. Keeping in mind that I already have two in burgundy and also the fact that you can never have enough in black; this was my obvious choice. First of all, the material is so easy to carry. It gives a grand look and doesn't need to be ironed. So perfect for vacations! The sheer maxi tulle was a perfect addition & contrast to the otherwise horizontal stripes which run throughout the dress.

I wore crocs with these for two reasons- One, it was supposed to be a let-your-hair-down vacation and I always prefer comfort over packing too much! Second- If you remember my pin from few years back on "Different ways to wear converse" you'd see how one can wear it even with sneakers and they look kickass! If you want to see more ways on how to wear converse then head here.

When I was about to wrap-up this shoot, I realized this dress has pockets as well! Score!!! Utility + style, I'm comfortable at the very least. You should check out Rosegal for more such dresses.
