Breaking Rules : Be my Valentine!

Come Valentine’s day... and a stream of suggestions on how to express your love to your beloved. Some get it all... roses, gifts, and a romantic date. Yet, a few wait and sulk in disappointment. Do you wait and watch to get lucky yourself this season? Or shall we break the rule and serve ourselves to something special this Valentine’s day?

"Be my Valentine" is what women whisper to themselves this season. Love yourself more, treat yourself, and pamper the beauty in you like no one else.

StyleAura™ women break the rule of being loved this valentine’s day by loving themselves in endless ways to celebrate love.

We spent a day with one such woman, Kajal, who as a working woman juggles between the roles she has chosen, in work and personal life. A loving wife, a caring mother of two girls, a joy to be with - for her family and friends, with a demanding yet successful career, Kajal never forgets what she owes to herself!

"My journey has evolved from striving to thriving" says Kajal. She shares her strengths with others to bring more joy and positivity in her life.

As we hear from Kajal;

 "The most wonderful gift I have ever got is the gift of myself. I don’t need my partner… my spouse to make me feel special. Yes, he does so, in more than many ways, but am I incomplete without that? Well, NO."

Here we capture the woman and her way of breaking rules this Valentine’s Day to love herself in many ways.

Be you... Do you... For you…

StyleAura - Kajal - Be You, Do You, For You

In many ways, I prefer my own company, it gives me time to think.

Me time…

StyleAura - Kajal - Me Time

I am not looking for someone who has everything, I have everything I can make myself happy with.

Make Time for Yourself…

StyleAura - Kajal - Make Time for Yourself

Make yourself a priority once in a while. It's not selfish... it's a necessity.

Toast to YOURSELF!

StyleAura - Kajal - Toast to Yourself

Don't just be good to others, be good to yourself too.

Take Control…

StyleAura - Kajal - Take Control

It's your journey, you take charge and steer the wheel of your ride.

I don’t hide from myself, I love my company and I believe that I have the ability to change for the better by loving and taking care of myself.

I once read, ‘Worry about loving yourself, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you.’

And I am in love with my perfectly imperfect self!

LOVE YOURSELF… TODAY, TOMORROW AND ALWAYS… TOTALLY AND WITH NO EXPECTATIONS… Happy Valentine’s Day to the Woman in You.

Breaking Rules : Perfect Imperfections!

Perfection is an exhaustive, infinite paradox. Attempting perfection doesn’t promisingly ensure happiness rather, the opposite for always wishing for more.

In the world of beauty and fashion, perfection lies in the imperfect details. Be it rules of wearing a particular piece, going bold with accessories or experimental make-up. Accepting what’s natural to us is what is perfect, not striving for a desired yet pretentious standard of style and beauty.

We’ve been bound by the rules of styling one garment with matching coloured accessories, shoes and even bags. Everything, from the texture to cut of the accessory, the symmetry and colour has so far been age-old. Traditional beauty was seen in smooth finished textures of a Diamond or Gold jewellery, with symmetrical beads and placement. But, fortunately over the last few years, women and men have shown a rebellious face to these rules and opted for something experimental infusing personal styles along the way. Our style resort this New Year is adorning a piece of handcrafted necklace that revolves around imperfect natural stones.

When we say imperfect, we mean in terms of textures, colours, cuts and placement of these stones and beads in an unconventional way to bring out the charm of what was considered flawed. The evolution of fashion and beauty has seen various experimental styles off late, and we’re game for a trend that is more individualistic than ever.

If we think about relationships, only when we truly and willingly accept one’s individual style, aura, humour, expression and their flaws, can we create a harmonious, everlasting relationship, that can be cherished for the years to come. Be it lovers, friends or family, accepting person’s imperfections and eliminating judgement is what brings love between any two or more people.

Likewise, inculcating a crudely cut Druzy with asymmetrical Baruks and having the statement piece accentuate your outfit on the New Year evening is a way of showcasing that you’re not bound by the rules and age-old styling methods. You’re challenging for a more refined, tasteful life.

StyleAura - Bonding over Imperfections

StyleAura shares the story of these friends who bonded over each other’s imperfections rather gracefully, and now stand strong embracing the nature, the character of a human and a piece of stunning unconventional accessory, beautifully. They’ve guided each other, stood through the rough times, have genuinely accepted each other for who they are without a single thought on their flaws and now stand tall with their years of friendship. Celebrating the New Year with their special bond and StyleAura’s gorgeous imperfect neck pieces.

Have a look at them portraying faults in style:

StyleAura - Copper druzy pendant with druzy bead necklace StyleAura - Druzy with delicate Hasli

Rakhi portraying a bohemian style with her tie-dye, bell sleeve, off-shoulder blouse with a delicate green Druzy pendant, or for an evening cocktail look she beautifully carries the copper Druzy pendant on a sober black dress to add élan.

StyleAura - Purple bhatti stone with grey baruk pearl choker StyleAura - Silver baruk with blue agate and polki necklace

Kavita keeps it minimal with clothing and dares to go bold with accessories. Look at how she paired the purple-pink Bhatti stone choker or the azure blue asymmetrical Baruk pearls on a black dress. Finesse yet adventurous.

StyleAura - Iolite stone choker StyleAura - Mother of Pearl with grey baruk pearl necklace

Gurmeet accentuates her off-shoulder frill top with an Iolite stone choker so gorgeously, we wouldn’t be surprised if you asked one for yourself.

Taking basic all the way up, Gunngun beautifully wraps the Mother of Pearls choker with her black ensemble to illuminate elegance and panache.

Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we're all in this together.
