FestiveFun IndoWestern ColorBurst!
Hi and GoodMorning my lovely readers! Hope you had enough and more fun this past weekend to take on Monday headstrong! 😛 As a final part to my festive fun theme here’s my last IndoWestern fusion look. I have paired my palazzo pants which has shown its “flair” on this blog long ago with a contrast kurta and a colorful dupatta! Let’s go straight into the look!
I love this pink and blue combination and I often wear this kurta to work with blue bottoms. So pairing it with these blue palazzos were a no-brainer!
I completed the look with a topknot and a gorgeous pair of heels in the same colour scheme!
Sorry about the squinting in every photo! We shot this look in the afternoon and the sun was in my eye at every angle!
Another way of wearing this look and making it look a little festive is wearing a tank top and wearing the dupatta around it knotted at the waist like a jacket! Take a looook!
My beautiful neckpiece is seen at last in this look! Yayyy 😍
Such a look is so easy to recreate because who doesn’t have palazzos these days and they look gorgeous with kurtas. Also, if you are one of those girls who has lost interest in wearing jeans then these outfits are the way to go babe trust me! Advice from a person who’s been there and done that!
Outfit details : Kurta and Palazzo pants – Fabindia; Heels – Flipkart; Square long chain – Sundari Silks; Tank top (racer back) – Jockey; Dupatta – Mom’s very old and Unknown!
That’s all from me folks! Hope you enjoyed this short and sweet post! Please tell me that you’ll try recreating this look for the festivities ahead! Have an amazing week! May all your to-do lists have nothing but satisfying strike throughs by the end of this week! 😂😃 Ciao!
IndoWestern FestiveFun OutfitIdeas!
In an attempt to make the most of the festive season while we are at the end of it I bring to you another indowestern outfit you can try for functions and festivals. Warning : whatever be your age this outfit will make you look (and feel) like a 12 year old (assuming you are older than that ofcourse) so be prepared 😋now that I have given you the heads up, let’s jump straight into the outfit!
This ikat printed skirt was a piece I bought nearly six months ago. It has been lying around without being worn only because I did not have a top for it! With the skirt I had bought this mustard running material but who does tough things like going to the tailor and getting it stitched right? 😐
So recently I decided it was high time and I pushed my lazy ass to the tailors and told them the exact pattern I wanted (courtesy : YouTube and Pinterest 💃🏼) and once the top was done, voila! A grand outfit was ready! 😍
This is a beautiful printed skirt with so much flair! It gives a school girly charm and makes for a great outfit to wear while visiting friends and relatives for Navrathri I have in one occasion before stitched an halter neck blouse for a saree and I realized halter neck makes your shoulders and whole profile look slim and that’s why I decided to go halter for this top.
I completed the look with a set a gold earrings (chandbalis?) and a tan brown pair of jodhpuri sandals. I decided to wear nothing on my hands or neck and thought that really made the outfit the king.
I loved the way these colors and prints have worked together and created a killer outfit which is very wearable and affordable! Add a bindi and a set of three dots to the sides of your eyes and on your chin and who knows you might even be outfit ready for garba (a Gujarati dance form which happens through the night through all nine days of festivities) 😍Hope you enjoyed the outfit and more importantly you are thinking of ways to recreate it 😃
Outfit details : Skirt ready made and top material – Shilpi Alwarpet, stitched by – Vasthra (my tailor), Joshpuri Sandals – very old bought at some exhibition by mom (for mom 😋), Earrings – Kushals, Watch – Tommy Hilfiger
Have a great week ahead readers. You’ve sure started it off well by reading my post 😉 here’s a twirling picture of me like I have not a care in the world ! Enjoy! 😆
Festive Chic! + Giveaway Winner Announcement
Hi all you lovely readers 😍! The only thing I am looking forward to after a long weekend is a short painless week which I hope runs away quickly!!
Moving on, Navrathri is right around the corner and I thought a good way to get back to my Fashion game would be to give y’all some inspiration for looks you can recreate this Navrathri! So stay tuned!
I bet everyone of us has this odd lehenga/ghagra/dhavani we are kinda ashamed of now because it looks like we just stepped in and out of a rainbow carrying the entire frikkin VIBGYOR out with us! One such Dhavani I own my is this one! (Don’t laugh 😐)
While I individually love the blouse and the skirt I hate, with all vehemence I can muster, the Dhavani or the green brocade portion of the attire. So I decided to tone down the whole look by just using the skirt giving this look a much needed twist!
That’s right! I wore this bright (I’ll blind you with this skirt type of bright) skirt with a very plain ethnic Kurti or short top!
It was like an explosion in my head when one day I saw this Kurti and this skirt lying next to each other in my closet and I thought why not?!?
It’s grand and underplayed at the same time and it is the perfect look for a function or a party/reception
The mild embroidery along the length of the top gives it a very traditional touch making the pairing so easy!
I completed the look with a pair of violet heels I bought over a year ago a sneak of which is shown here!
This is a look you can easily recreate for the festive season this year by pairing a bright piece with a sober one in the same colour scheme! I’ll try and add a few more outfits you can recreate this Navarathri to look fab and festive while going light on your pocket too!
