Lame dame!!!

Sunday, February 12, 2012

My taste have evolved over years. Nowadays I prefer cotton,silk salwars that being said let me spill the beans..I love hoarding western wear, but in reality I hardly ever wear em. I went shopping with dad, coaxed him into paying my bill :P. So, here goes my latest purchases

White printed top with kasavu (Golden) border, pink/green golden border shawl

I loved the broad kasavu (Golden) border. The cotton set cost me rs.500.Pretty reasonable no?

A better view


Red/orange printed top with kasavu border, polka dotten bottom and printed/polka dotted/kasavu bordered shawl

The printed top is nothing great to write home about, but the polka dotted lovliness was too hard to resist. Cost  me rs.700.


I access a salwar kameez via it's shawl. For the amount payed the shawl has to be gorgeous and I do love my silk shawls so this set was a last minute impulsive puppy dog faced "Dad can I buy it too" buy. Cost me around rs.1000.

Printed silk shawl, double shaded green/red silk top, red silk bottom


This Indian terrain jute bag was a steal for rs. 500. I am a sucker for bag so I need not give you a reason so as why I bought this.


The bag has an internal pouch and an additional jute carry bag within.



So, I am planning a complete wardrobe makeover before wedding so you will be subjected to lot of my lame posts like this :P. Kindly bear until May :D.

I demand pictures with the shawl/dupatta, kameez, salwar ...in that order so that we get a better idea of how it all looks together and if something is absolutely gorgeous than a full blown picture of it too:)

I'd really like to see them all stitched and styled by you!! Also, I'm planning a trip to Kochi and wanted you to recommend some good malls/shopping places there; you are after all an expert!

I totally agree with the bag. I am not a big fan of kurtha and salwars.

@Swarnali Isn't the bag fit into carrying the world in your bag term?.

@beingFab Head straight to convent junction, you will find small boutiques where u can find good silk materials for Rs.1500 onwards.Accessories same place...Goodwill is THE place to go to...Apart from convent you can try MG road, durbar hall ground, oberon mall(only branded stuff).Panampally nagar also has so many small botiques that sell awesome salwar materials....

@PAPS Considering the hazzle of ironing, washing(3 piece) and managing the same I too prefer casuals but, the elegance of salwars is unmatched.
