Adapting To The Changing Styles of Middle Age

As I entered the 40’s a few years ago, it was no easier to find the dresses and accessories that would go with my age, weight and yet be flattering to my personality. Gone were the teen days of bright colors, full frills and laces, as I became more comfortable with subtle colors and plain designs.  The financially stable women in middle ages have more to spend but fewer options to choose from, in comparison to their younger counterparts. Adapting to the changes in the body during the middle ages is one the best thing that I can do to bring out my style statement that will keep me comfortable, suit my age and at the same time will give as much as flattering look as possible.
Being an organized planner, when the contest in Indiblogger asked me to Pick my favorite apparel and accessories from www.shoppersstop.com and put together an ensemble that’s the perfect look for this festive season I started from my hair and then went on adding all the necessary things that I would need before I walk out. 
LOreal Paris Hair Expertise Shampoo Smooth Intense
As for the hair I choose the LOreal  Paris Hair Expertise Shampoo Smooth Intense as it will help me deal deftly with the lost shine and smoothness of my hair.

Then it is time to cover up those peeping tom greys with some LOreal Paris Excellence Hair Colour Shade No 1 Natural Black before giving it the final touch with LOreal Paris Hair Expertise Shampoo Colour Protect


LOreal Paris Hair Expertise Conditioner Colour Protect
That will give me satisfaction of giving my head a good crowning glory!

I would love to go with a floral theme this festive season, one of the reason why I opt for a Floral Dream Deo from Adidas to splash myself with. 

Lakme Sun Expert Fairness Sunscreen Lotion Spf30 Pa+

  Having learned the harmful effect of sun rays on our skin, there is no way I would dare venture out without proper protection. It is nice to shop for everything a woman needs on one single website or a shopping center. I am glad to find Lakme Sun Expert Fairness Sunscreen Lotion Spf30 Pa+ on shoppers stop. 








Now it is time for getting dressed up comfortably and comfort should come from within. I am supporter of non-wired cotton undergarments that are cool and good enough to wear throughout the day. As the floral theme would need light colors I will opt for Amante Non Padded Non Wired Bra and Jockey Ladies Modern Brief.
With a wide range of choice available, it is difficult to choose a suitable dress, but keeping a theme in mind makes it more easier for me. I love the look of this simple dress, which looks comfortable and elegant. Though I try to avoid laces, the festive season is  good reason to indulge in some grandeur. So that it is Kashish Patiala-Kurta-Dupatta Set with Embroidered Yoke, Lace Trims, Short Sleeves, and Printed Chiffon Dupatta made of Cotton Jacquard Fabric for me.

Hidesign - Handbag     




It was not difficult to find a hand bag to go with the design, as I instantly fell in love with this Hidesign – Handbag, an all day bag in vegetable tanned faux crocodile leathers which matched the color of my dress. 

Skagen - Womens Watch - 608SSS





Moving ahead to accessories I find this Wrist watch very elegant, with a debonair style statement so I choose Skagen - Womens Watch - 608SSS. A slight tinge of green makes it compliment my dress and accessories as well








What is an Indian woman without jewelry for the festive season? So I move over to the buy some expensive jewelry now. It is always lovely to shop virtually for contests.. without affecting the bank balance, than to do it with real credit card ;)

Though silver is my favorite metal, for festive season I will go with glittery gold. The green stones in the ring catch my eye so I slip it on my finger before surfing over to other jewelry.

Carbon Diamond Ladies Ring -FHL21821

Pretty Women Pendant Set - 94276


I was happy to find this perfect match of Pretty Women Pendant Chain with Earring containing Cz Stones with Light Green Colour Beat Drop to rightly compliment my dress and finger ring. 

Being a married woman, Mangalasutra is also important for me. I found a perfect one for me in this Sparkles Gold Mangalsutra with Diamond Pendant.
Sparkles Gold Mangalsutra with Diamond Pendant Set - N9401

After having a smooth run so far, finally it was tough to find some bangles or bracelet to go with my theme and color. Reluctantly I choose this bracelet because it has the floral design and suits the Mangalsutra, but would look great with a green stone thrown in here and there. I would sure love to have some more choices in this department.


Infinity Bangle -B43502G
To make up for the lack of color on bracelet, I decorate my nails  with green color nail polish, which would compensate lavishly. At my age I love to stick to shades of maroon, but once in a while I decide to step out of way. Maybelline Colorama Nail Enamel Verde PalmeiraGlossy nail color in captivating vibrant shades comes to my rescue here.

Lakme Lip Love Dark Desire
The lips will do with Lakme Lip Love Dark Desirei


Lakme Absolute Eye Shadow Queen
I apply a very light dab of greenish Lakme Absolute Eye Shadow Queen  which will properly compliment the rest of the accessories.







Givenchy Play For Her Edp Intense Spray 75ML

Givenchy Play For Her Edp Intense Spray 75ML
A warm fragrance, Play for Her Eau de Parfum Intense exudes a dark sensuality, with the promise of a giddying playtime. Hmmm sounds interesting and smells good too. 










After a big splash of Givenchy fragrance it is time for me to step out in my Lemon Pepper - Ladies Footwear which is Trendy and bold- to make my own style statement.

With all the accessories set for the theme, for the special celebration all I have to do is slip out of the comfortable suit into the elegant Saree to get that special Indian festive look.
