Well! Why don’t you do?

To give you all ladies out there, some snippets about doing things differently, we at justcheckedinblog.com have come up with this once in a month section on what all you can do. So, ladies! “brace yourselves!” for, this is the very first Article in the category.

Team up your denim with a button down shirt (look for statement sleeves), pair it up with your lady like pointed toes, a vintage scarf and ofcourse the red lips (just tone down the remaining makeup)

Switch off your cell phone for a day, clean your wardrobe (donate, sell or recycle rather than stuffing them in your closet saying I have many clothes but I don’t know what to wear) and adopt a 5 piece capsule wardrobe to start with, like how the french do.wardrobe-essentials-page-001

Add a statement jacket on your going out slip dress for a change and see how the heads turn.

Save up and invest in one classic bag like the classic quilted Chanel bag or a Dior or a Chloe and feel the pride (aspiration is healthy)

Save those hard earned bucks which you kept aside for a pair of Solitaire earrings for later i.e when you get into your 50’s. Go for statement jewelry now which you can only pass on to the next gen at later stages (remember we cannot reverse our age)

Why you “can” avoid these two colours this Valentines Day?

Valentines day is around the corner and I am sure, you are all feeling punchy and dazed in deciding THE OUTFIT for the day. Not to worry! we are here help you narrow down that perfect piece. Well, the colours that snap in your mind for the love season are pink and red which you have been flaunting for every Valentines Day till now. Let us just  avoid these   two colours for a change. Yes! thats right, we are exactly asking you to dump the two colours red and pink this V-Day. No! we are not crazy and we are saying that loud.

Instead, go for the spring hues or the pieces belonging to the family of whites or blacks. We have pooled in some of our editor approved looks for you.

Go for a lacy dress in black or white, team it up with statement jacket or a leatherjacket.

We are so obsessed with this Ruffles trend which made its way into 2017 as well !

The Ruffles trend has ruled nearly half of 2016 and continues winning more hearts in 2017. The trend  is so feminine and classy that it made its way into many fashion houses all over the world.  Every  street style star’s wardrobe has one such key piece such as a ruffled top, printed ruffle dress or even a ruffled hem denim (remember, Madewell denims)

Here is some inspiration from street style for you!

We got too much into the trend and we started asking “Can we get some Ruffles please !”

Now its time for you to comment!

What we loved on the Day1 of Lakme Fashion Week Summer / Resort 2017 ?

While Monisha Jaising’s show on the international cruise Costa – neo – Classica was a curtain riser for the Lakme fashion week Summer/Resort 2017 with bold in gold statement outfits, to sequin clad sexy ensembles and not to forget those chic draped outfits in bright hues, the Gen Next’s young designer’s breezy and wearable collection in subdued hues made in natural weaves got us into the mood of summer which was further enhanced by our well known designers like Ka Sha, Urvashi Kaur and Eka.

Then comes the Duo Dev R Nil with an out of the world exhibit named “The valley of missing flowers” which lived true to its theme. The closing show for the day by Amit Aggarwal was totally at a different level. We particularly loved the jackets and skirts with up-cycled patola fabric.

Yes, we definitely present you with some snapshots to feed your soul, so that you decide on which ones to buy for the coming seasons…

The only swimwear brand we are crushing on right now!

By putting a full stop to savoring those abundant holiday sweets and delicacies, we are sure you are  all hitting the gym or enrolling for power yoga or taking that zumba class you have been longing for by now, and simultaneously would have cut down on carbs for that toned body to look your best in the swimsuit on a beach vacation you might be planning in the coming months. Well, all that is great but what if you don’t find a swimsuit  that is appropriate and accentuates those beautiful legs and abs you worked out so hard for?

Not to worry at all, as we have scooped out one of a kind swimwear brand which does the magic. We are totally in love with their prints and patterns which I am sure will further inspire you, achieve your goals…

These are the best gift options for your BFF this Season! Don’t you agree?

Argh! This weather is making me too lazy even to write a new post :-/ Hmmm, did they believe me? Oh, No! “they did not”.

Oops! you heard me. Alright Alright! Apologies again :(  That was so dumb! I know! I  know! Let us come to the point.

This winter, here in India is colder than the last one. Friends say, I brought in a cold wave along with me from Germany (might be true but anyways). I wanted to buy a gift for my bestie this season. I am either procrastinating or busy with work or simply too lazy to step out.

She is your go to person for everything, she can read you within seconds and would know what you want and can easily break the face of the one who hurt you no matter what. That’s the kind of best friends we all have and we all love to find them a unique gift for the Holidays. Good thing is I have done some research and collated a selection of gifts for your BFF whether she is a fashion fanatic or a party girl or a person who loves anything you give.

So Ladies, let us dig in!

My Muse


His design is not only part of my Muses but a constant inspiration to me… Oh wait! I totally skipped the part of introducing his name first, sorry! I was talking about Rahul Mishra who was the winner of the Prestigious Woolmark prize and keeps on innovating the design process by incorporating traditional Indian techniques into modern outfits…

This Sketch is a part of his collection from PFW which I adore…

Hello Spring :)

Can’t wait to ditch the thigh high boots and Chelsea’s for my favorite Mules and Lace up sandals, well, I am sorry to put you in a bit of confusion, thing is I am so excited welcoming Spring again into my life which is at the moment busy cleaning the wardrobe filled with winter greys. Looking forward to incorporate loads of prints and pastels for the season.

Speaking about prints, I would love the Vogel printed outfits with pastels incorporated, as delivered from the strokes of my Art brushes…

So, here they are for you, my dear lovely readers :)
