A small headsup:
Waking up to the humid and itchy Mumbai heat is definitely not my idea of a Sunday but that was exactly the weather on this weird Sunday morning when I woke up with this sudden urge to shoot a couple of Indian inspired fusion looks for you all. I hadn’t done it in a while and it made perfect sense to shoot them that day (Atleast in my head!). So well this is a series of three looks I shall be posting this week. Hope you all like it as much as I liked styling them!
Honestly fashion isn’t always about splurging on new clothes but working around with what you have in your wardrobe and giving them a newer meaning each time. And although the pile of clothes keeps on increasing in my wardrobe, there are just a few favourites I cannot let go off. No matter how old or tattered they are, I find solace in old clothes. There’s a sense of belonging in them. To me they talk about a life I’d once lived, a memory faded now but alive only through the feel of the fabric or the tinkling of the bells on that necklace.
This look honestly gives me the “Gaon ki chhori” (Countryside Belle!) vibes and I love that about it. Not too cluttered, I tried keeping the outfit fuss free with just a necklace and choker layering and no other significant accessories.
Bless these fleas to introduce the mass to some good trends and brands! Although the dhoti really bulges around the crotch area due to excessive fabric, thanks to it being made for men (rolls eyes) I think my top hides it well. But what I really love is this earthy block printed top from Anokhi. I’ve had it for over two years now but that is the beauty of a good cotton, they do not wear out easily.What am I wearing?
