Look Book Series : Tan Bag Look #3 – Off to Work

Hi guys! So today I’m back with the last and final look in the tan bag look book series! It’s a traditional Indian office wear look! It’s Monday and you’re looking for some inspiration to dress up to work aren’t you? Well let’s consider this post to be God sent then 😆😋 

While in my last two looks with this bag I tried mixing it with contrasting materials like denim and colours like navy blue, in this look I took the amateur and straight forward route! Used the colours appearing in the bag to make an outfit! And Ta-da here’s what I got! 🎶

While you are looking at the pictures, imagine me to be standing next to you clapping my hands 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 and jumping up and down like a five year old because I’m thrilled about how well I think these pictures have come out! All thanks to my friend and upcoming photographer Pranav and the amazing graffiti walls we decided to use as the backdrop! 

Coming back to my outfit (yes I definitely will yap about it for sometime and you have to read through that! Please 😭😂) So the white kurta and white leggings look has come up on the blog a couple of times before, as this is my go to attire when it’s not the dress but something else it the outfit which needs to stand out! In this case it was this beautiful Dupatta and the bag and the sandals of course 😃 I have to tell you a little some-some about this Dupatta now! My mom bought this Dupatta close to 15 years ago because she was at that Beautiful expensive Dupatta – with plain yet elegant Salwar kameez phase (don’t we all go through that phase? 😊) and my dad got a brainwave and decided to fabric paint some flowers into it because I think the salwar she wanted to wear it with had these similar flowers. But 15 years later the salwar is gone for good and what remains is this beautiful flowy dupatta and I found it stashed away by mom one day while digging for something else!! La la la laaaa laa! And ever since I found it I have been obsessing with it, pairing it with literally every plain salwar I own, wearing it to work atleast once a week and I decided why not show it to you guys as well 👏🏽😊👏🏽 I also kind of sealed my brown-white play by adding these brown beads and brown (and new!) sandals to this look! 

I think this look compliments the tan bag the best and it makes me office ready too in the process (win-win?). It is a really easy and effective idea to pair the color combination of the statement piece (bag in this case) to make your outfit!

Outfit Details – White Kurta – Fab India, White Leggings – Colors, Dupatta – really old, mum doesn’t really know where it is from although she thinks it’s either from Nalli or Kumaran, Chennai, Tan Bag – Bags by Anqi (Instagram), Sandals – Charles & Keith, Watch – Tommy Hilfiger, Beaded Necklace – Thrifted from Delhi 

That’s all about my look, coming to something else I wanted to tell you guys!  

Pranav and I are friends for the past five years now! And recently he told me how he liked everything about my blog except the quality of the photos and the locations I choose 😂 Pranav wants to take up photography ( fashion or wildlife? Lol) as his serious hobby and very sweetly agreed to use me and my blog as his guinea pig and you won’t hear me complaining about that 😋 thank you Pranav and welcome abroad the Frillthrills team (team? What team 😂😐😂) 

That’s it from me guys! Hope you enjoyed the look book series! Cheers to more such awesome posts coming your way and a bigger toast to the deadly Monday definitely coming your way 😉!

  1. Eeeeeeek! Why are you so darn cute?!?! You look lovely and so beautiful in all your pics; completely agree with your friend – you definitely needed a photographer on board with the Frillthrills team. Ok… now let me start off by saying that the bag and dupatta are seriously too perfect and I need both items in my life PRONTO. The exquisite floral prints on the dupatta are amazing; kudo’s to your father for having such an impeccable eye and creating such a work of art. I LOVE the traditional indian touch with this outfit and how you kept the entire look super consistent with the white and beige color story. Great outfit Shilpa… can’t wait to see more!

    • Oh sonam!!!! I seem to have forgotten the wonders a message from you does to my day :* :* thank you so much!!! I can’t believe how late I’ve seen this message 🙂 the dupatta will you believe if I told you, was a last minute addition to the look? Haha 😀 the floral hand painting is what makes it so one of a kind right? All dads are geniuses agreed? Hehe and yes I realized I hadn’t done a traditional look with bag and that’s why this post! So glad you took time out and wrote that lovely comment! Happy dancing happy dancing!! Thank you 😘😘
