Trending: Short jackets with Indian wear

Short embroidered jackets/waist coats/vests are very popular among Indian women these days. I see a lot of women now-a-days wearing these beautiful jackets in various ways like: patiala suits, chooridars, long kurtas, kurtis, anarkalis or jeans. It has become a must have item for Indian wardrobe.

Embroidered jackets are on the top of my mind these days. I recently bought this beautiful jacket from a local shop in Bhootnath market, Lucknow. This jacket has ghungroo at the end of the doree and mirror work. I am feeling very happy and i always feel happy whenever i buy a new clothing item… Heheeee 😀

Let’s have a look at the pictures below of styling jackets/vests in different ways:

Embroidered mirror work jackets on a plain kurta add volume to your style.
 If you want to style your anarkali suit differently…. just add a short jacket instead of dupatta.

These vests look great with pants and jeans too.

I think i should buy one more ethnic vest. 😉
Hope you also like these jackets.

Canvas Shoes Makeover

I love canvas shoes and I think most of us are crazy about canvas shoes and want to have the coolest ones.
I was thinking to paint my old plain canvas shoes into something fabulous and fun.
This is the picture below of how my shoes looked before painting.

And this is how they looked after painting. Bold colors were used to paint these shoes.
 I used fabric/acrylic colours which are the perfect paint to use on canvas shoes.
Simply enjoyed painting my shoes. 🙂

I am in love with the new look of my canvas shoes. 🙂
Have you tried painting your shoes before? Show us what you’ve made !

Khadi ka tashan

Hello everyone,

As we all know khaadi is a wonderful hand woven cloth material. And has a unique quality of keeping the wearer warm in winters and cool in summers. Many Indian women wear sarees, kurtis and other dress material made from khaadi. And men wear khaadi shirts, jacket and kurta with jeans.

Now a days khaadi is blended with cotton and silk to make it more attractive and is available in many colours. We saw a lot of prints and drapes at Lakme Fashion Week (Day-2).

I love wearing khadi. My favorites include: khadi Kurtas, khadi jackets/vests and sarees.

Love this look.
Khadi saree

 

 

 

 Love this khadi pants. I desperately want this. I think it will look great with converse. What do you say?

Mad for Black 

Jackets/vests

I am soon gonna stitch long khadi kurta in color grey for sure.  😉
Do tell me if you also want khadi kurta. I’ll stitch one for you too.
Stay happy, stay blessed.

Happy Holi

Hello dear friends,
Happy Holi !!!

Holi is celebrated throughout India and Nepal by Hindus – but considering how fun it is, people of all faiths join in. When i was kid i love to play holi and used to have water balloon competition with friends. I still love this festival of colours. But i hate fast colours. It is a festival of happiness and not a festival of irritating others or making them angry.

Guys please, try and avoid harmful and fast colours and do not have an intention of harming others. Make sure that whatever you do, it doesn’t hurt anyone.  Make it a “HAPPY HOLI” in true and right sense. Spread smiles and happiness.

Wish you all a very happy and colorful Holi.
Play safe.

2. I am not feeling sick anymore when i woke up this morning.:D 😀 I was not well for last one week.
Now i am planning to go to the market today. It is Holi festival on 6th of march and have to do so much of preparations. Have to make “Gujiya”(sweet dish). I need to buy a lot of stuff like colours, sweets, Thandai, balloons (holi balloons) etc.


Gujiya
 Holi Balloons

 

3. Flowers flowers everywhere. 🙂 Flowers make me smile big.

 

Creativity Time

Hello friends,
Do you like smileys? Well I like them a lot and thought of making them with clay.
I found some wooden blocks in my store room and made smileys on that with clay.
Then painted them with acrylic colours. 🙂

 And this is a pirate smiley 🙂
 Aren’t they cute?
 It’ll look great in kid’s room as a wall hanging or as a paper weight on their study table.
Hope you like it.

Love
Kaur

 

My Resolutions ;)

Happy New Year everyone!!

029cd3259bc8623de30b2696379a616c

It’s raining here since morning and I’m not loving it. I hate Winter + Rain. Hate this combination. And, because of rain i am not going anywhere and decided to stay at home and make my New Year Resolutions.

#1. This year i am going to limit my Tea intake. Usually i have a lot of tea.. like 3-4 cups in the morning then one cup after i take bath , then one cup after lunch or instead of lunch sometimes…;) and it goes on…. and i end up having 6-7 cups of tea a day… So, my #1 goal is to limit my tea intake.. that is one cup in the morning and one cup in the evening.

#2. Limit sugar intake, Junk food and sodas.

#3. Save money.

#4. Get organized.

#5. Maintain weight. I am scared of being fat and I’ve gained a bit last year. I ate mindlessly the whole year. 😦

#6. And the last one.. Stay  away from negative people. I want to stay happy and live a happy life.

Well, i don’t have a big list of resolutions. Do share with me if you have any new year resolutions.

Love

Kaur
