This week, we feature picks from Tanesha Awasthi, whose Girl with Curves site is a top source of style inspiration for curvy women worldwide and 2013 Bloggie winner for Best Fashion or Beauty Weblog. Launched in 2011 from Silicon Valley, Awasthi’s mission for Girl with Curves is to impact lives through fashion, by encouraging positive body image and self-esteem, regardless of size. She has been featured in Vogue India and is a monthly contributor to Redbook Magazine. Find her on Twitter at @GirlWithCurves or on Facebook.
1. MAC Lipstick in ‘Media’
A statement lip in a dark color completes any Fall/Winter outfit. This one is especially moody, and with its dark burgundy tone is a nice alternative to a typical statement red lip.
2. Putumayo Presents India
I’ve always loved world music, and I’m big on dancing any chance I get. This CD in particular, has both upbeat songs as well as chill, ambient beats, which sets the mood for a fun gathering, or acts as the perfect background music while I’m working. It also includes “Tere Bina”!
3. Zara.com Accessories
Zara is my latest go-to for beautiful accessories at a reasonable price. I love that they offer free returns without a minimum, and they constantly restock, which means there are always new options available.
