What I Wore | Pink Lemonade

Supré Jumsuit (worn as top) // The Closet Label skirt* // Casio gold vintage wrist watch (similar)// Forever New bag // Koovs shoes

on my nails- Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania nail polish
in Matinee Mauve & Bring on the Blue (see all the shades here)
on my lips- L'Oréal Rouge Carresse lipstick in Impulsive Fuschia ()

One last summer outfit shot two months ago before my haircut & before it started raining. I wore as much color as possible. Speaking of which, I am absolutely in love with the formula of the rouge caresse lipsticks. So smooth, pigmented, long lasting & yet light.

Lingerie | Pretty Secrets Comfy-Fit Bras

Pretty Secrets is an Indian ecommerce website that specialises in lingerie, swimwear & sleepwear. I've blogged about them before too. They have just released their newest range of bras called the COMFY-FIT range, they promises that it's their most comfortable bra yet!
I am a very lazy dresser & comfort is the single most important factor for me when it comes to everyday dressing, I jumped at the chance to review the new range.
The Comfy Fit bras* cost ₹599 each although you can buy two at the discounted cost of ₹999. They come in (and this is my favorite part!) nine beautiful colors, from staples like white, nude and black to vibrant purple, pine green & aqua. The order came the same way as last time, a waterproof envelope that has no indication of it's contents (because with lingerie discreet packaging is a must!)
Inside was a pretty pink box with a white bow on it, the Pretty Secrets logo. It was also sealed with stickers with the same logo. Inside, the bras were delicately wrapped in tissue paper.
The bras I chose were true navy, black & nude. They have soft cups with thin padding. I like bras with a little padding because if they're unpadded that can lead to nipples showing through, which is not a good look on anybody. The straps are very thin too, comfort wise I'm not the biggest fan of these type of straps as they tend to dig into your flesh after long periods of wear but then thin straps are usefully because they are easily hidden too. The straps are not removable.
I think that these bras are great for daily wear & they certainly live up to their promise of being comfortable ever during very long days. The wide range of colors & the exquisite packaging is just an added bonus for me.
The website too is not only easy to navigate, it's a pleasure to browse through. Overall their attention to even the most minute detail really stands out to me.

Tech | Voonik Fashion App

Voonik, a prominent online shopping platform has just released their new app. Since there are so few useful fashion related apps I was quite excited to take this for a spin.When you first open the app, you're taken through a quick four question quiz to understand your style & body type, this will help the app suggest clothes that suit you.
Suggestions are presented to you in a very neat flow that works similar to famous dating app tinder. You see pictures & a price... like it? Choose the ♥. Don't like it? Go with ✕.Or, you could just do the more fun thing & swipe left to skip, right to like.
All the items you've liked are subsequently stored for you, & you can be automatically alerted if any of the items you liked goes on sale.

One of the biggest strengths of the app, other than the personalisation is the fact that you are not restricted to one website. Voonik brings you shopping suggestions from many different websites, more variety = always better! You can also choose to browse according to the type of garment. Whether you're looking for salwar kameezes, a crop top or a pair of black slingbacks you're bound to find one here.
To me it's a godsent especially in the monsoon's when it's too icky to actually venture out of your home to shop (& why should you when you can get what you want at your doorstep, am I right?
I've always been an outspoken advocate for online shopping in general & this app makes browsing & shopping even more convenient & fun.

You can visit the Voonik website & download the app on the play store. Have you tried the Voonik fashion app? What are your thoughts on it?
