You Be The Judge.

Happy Monday, all. Since I'm always prattling on and on (and on) here, I thought I'd start a new Monday feature to help everyone ease into the work week. The purpose of You Be The Judge will be for you - my lovely and astute readers - to voice your sartorial thoughts and opinions. So, for our inaugural YBTJ, let's kick things off with Sonakshi Sinha at Day 3 of Lakmé Fashion Week. For your reference purposes, here are some of Sonakshi's other recent fashion choices. In that context, does this look deserve taalia ya gaalia?Photo Source.

Her dress is actually really nice, but her accessories and grooming are wayyy off!

First off, the dress. Love the vibrant color, the length, and the details. It should have been a little more fitted as the billowy nature of it overwhelms her petite frame a wee bit. But she pulls it off pretty well.

She should have swapped her necklace for a chunky bejewelled cuff bracelet or some kind of hand accessory. That necklace draws attention away from the lovely design of the dress at the bust.

Her bag is a flop though. I, for one, have never been a fan of satin slouchy bags, made worse with the bow details. Screams tacky to me. A nice clutch would have been so much better.

ok, the worst thing of all. HER SHOES! Hello, did she forget her shoe size or something? There's so much of overhang of her toes that it just looks disgusting. Plus the shoe itself is not right for the outfit. She looks like she's out for a stroll to the market. A nice pair of neutral peeptoes would have completed the outfit so well..

On the whole, i'd say she picked a good choice for the dress, but bombed when it came to accessorizing. Also, what's up with her hair? There's no shape, no styling at all. Hate those two straggling locks of hair on her shoulders, coupled with centre parting. A nice sleek coiff would have really perked her up. Uh, and did i mention concealer?

Well said, Aarti! I couldn't agree with you more :) Thanks for writing in and stay tuned for next week!

Good point, BabyJanny, it's certainly an improvement over her last couple of outings! There's definitely something off about the bag - maybe too slouchy for her overall look.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
