Perky maxi

Clothes that you don't wear anymore, clothes that don't fit you anymore are great palettes for creating something new. You could try DIYs on them and if it doesn't turn out good, then it doesn't even hurt too much. Every once in a while I refurbish one of my old clothes, that can't be altered according to my current size, or are plain and boring. that ways you add a fresh piece to your wardrobe without investing too much, and a piece thats your own creation. Sound good! So I pulled out an old maxi skirt to add some Gulaabi Girl touches.

Things you'll need

 Creating your own motif/stamp
Befor doing the stamping, I tried searching for options for making a stamp. You could use felt to make your own stamp. I used waste eraser. Cut out a heart using a scissor and put a nail thorugh it for some grip. This is not the most efficient way to do it, because the nail might give you a very good grip. But I had no time to go to the market and so the rubber and nail.

Start painting 

Using a brush apply fabric paint on the rubber, a decent amount. rubber will not absorb the paint, and so might not give a good impression, so avoid using water to make the paint runny. 

I stamped the hearts all over, and filled them with paint free hand. Separate the two layers of clothing with a newspaper to avoid blotting.

How I wore it
I wore the maxi skirt like a tube maxi and layered a sheer floral button down for a breezy day.

Parineeti and her new Avatar

The coveted actress coming from Chopra clan is ready to flabbergast everyone with her new found style. Shammed for her flabby body several times, Parineeti never cared about her looks. She never really wanted to do anything with the films and called Bollywood "flimsy world", but maybe she never realized her talent until she stepped into lime light. Celebrated for her performance right from the beginning as debutante, Parineeti always preached girls for loving and adoring their body. 

Sizzling the cover of the Juice Magazine, Parineeti talks about her humble background, her love for family and her new house, a sprawling and spanking sea facing apartment in Bandra, which she fascinatingly calls her fairytale home.The actress has created her entire career without any support from anyone under the guidance of her sister, Priyanka Chopra. 

The Juice Magazine, has explored the new side of the lovely actress who loves to eat and had a career in investment banking before shining as the Bollywood star. Her looks in the magazine are one in a million with a never before look.

"For a while I was on every "Worst Dressed" list out there. I was fat and I would not get access to the best clothes". Although the actress loves food but has been working really hard for getting into shape. She sculpted her "better body" with strict diet regimen and Kalaripayattu, a martial arts form from Kerala. Parineeti also invested time in learning about working with layers and silhouettes, which contributed big time in transforming her style.

Fashion and style are learnt from experience. Anyone who claims for not being a fashionable person can take inspiration from Parineeti. Its not about sweating out in the gym for fitting into size zero but doing things that one likes and eating just right. If you are finding it hard to fit into your old college jeans, take inspiration from her.

With her new look and new found love for fashion and being choosy about scripts, I bet 2016 has something great for her in stock.
