My first clothing haul since I moved to India. I got a little too excited seeing all the colours and prints. No more wearing 50 shades of grey!!! No more huge coat covering everything fun you are wearing underneath!
I have a thing for blue and red combination. I did not realise at that time but two out of the three sets are blue and red! I have to put my brain to use while shopping and actually think of the wardrobe big picture!
The red salwar is a Biba number. I love Biba for the cloth quality and quirky prints. They are on the higher price point side for a salwar, but for me it cuts down having to hunt decent tailors these days.
Tailoring has become so expensive guys! Tailors charge anywhere between Rs 650 to Rs 850 for a salwar and more often than not they produce unsatisfactory results. Anyone else have trouble with tailors?
This paisley printed aqua kurta is from the brand W. Not my favourite of pieces at first sight but I thought I would try it on in store since the material was soft and silky. When I did it was an "I-HAVE-TO-HAVE-IT" moments in the trial room. It fits me perfectly and the material drapes beautifully.
The kurta is a Melange piece, I love their collection. They fit me like a glove and the brand always has some beautiful designs. This is blue with red and green embroidery on the yoke, so obviously I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!
My Anniversary Gift!!!
Last but not the least is my anniversary gift from hubby dearest :D I have always wanted a half-white silk saree with pink border. He remembered that and sent me a web link to the one he chose(He is still in London!). I took it to the store but unfortunately they did not have that piece and this one was very similar so I got this! (The picture makes it look browner than it actually is. In real life it is half-white and the chevron pattern is not this obvious).
I will definitely do outfit posts with these clothes!!! One thing I absolutely LOVE about being back in India is the clothes!!! All of these were bought in Lifestyle (My fav store!) and the saree is from Palam Silks, Chennai.
