I am a firm believer that shopping has therapeutic effects. No joke! I have experienced a prominent elevation in mood the minute there’s a new addition to my closet. Being a huge fan of street shopping and discovering new brands, I think I’ve identified what the best feeling about all this is -- rummaging through stuff at a store and finding something you love at an affordable price! I think we all agree that the minute something you select off the rack is well priced, the urge to buy it is suddenly tenfold.
This post is all about a little shopping adventure I embarked on at the Unlimited Store. When I was asked to do the #3KUnlimited challenge, I couldn’t contain my excitement. I mean who would say no to heading over to a store and creating looks with everything you find under a total of INR 3000! As I set off on my mission, I presumed I would come home with a pretty little dress and one accessory probably. I not only came back with the imagined items, but also with a lot more and managed to create two whole looks within 3k.
As much as I love indulging in fancy party wear, I have to face the fact that daily wear is something that I would need and use a lot more. Keeping this in mind while shopping at Unlimited, I put together two looks for this post that were most in sync with my personality as well as the blog. Simple, stylish and everyday fashion was definitely the way to go for this lookbook.
Tropical Print Dress - Unlimited
Bag - Covo | Sunglasses - Cotton On | Sneakers - Atmosphere
Everyone has a signature piece that they opt for when in doubt and for me that has to be a simple dress. When I’m in too much of a hurry or in no mood to assemble an outfit together, I grab a little dress from my cupboard and I’m off. I loved the print on this one and knew I had to have it the instant I laid eyes on it. I have been looking for a tropical print dress for ages now and I love the flirty style of this printed one. It isn’t too over the top and super comfortable for a long day of meetings, running errands or pretty much anything. Pair it with a cute pair of sneakers and a basic bag (like I have) if you like to keep it casual or try feminine heels and a clutch to rock that lunch date look!
Burgundy Tee - Unlimited | Light Wash Denims - Unlimited | Gold Necklace - Unlimited
Bag - Mango | Sunglasses - Nose, KL | Heels - Atmosphere
What excited me most about this deal is that I managed to snag a pair of denims in my set of goodies as well! Let me just say that again. A pair of jeans that fit like a dream! Mid rise denims, a semi tucked burgundy top, delicate jewellery and a messy half bun led to an ideal day outfit. To add in a little formal touch, I put on my most comfortable pair of wedges along with a nude purse to go with it. While I wasn’t entirely sure about how this look would turn out, I’d say I’m pretty content with the effortless chic feel of it. These three pieces put together form the perfect afternoon outfit, but the versatility of each of them gives me so much room to experiment and achieve many other looks too.
What I love most about the Unlimited store is that they have such a fun young collection. From beautifully printed palazzo pants and floral dresses to comfortable basics and even ethnic wear, they have a whole lot to offer at such modest prices!
A tropical printed dress, light washed skinnys, a burgundy top and a necklace, all under 3k! I mean what more could you ask for! So what are you waiting for? Head over to Unlimited and grab your daily #ootd fix now!
