Happy Diwali 2015 (in pictures)

Diwali is one of my favorite festivals. The best part of this festival is decorating home with flowers, lights and diyas and making  rangoli…

Outfit of the day – Rakshabandhan

Hello everyone!
Hope you all are doing great.
This year August was not a great month for me. I was sick the whole month. As soon as I recovered with the one, the other infection caught me. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It started with eye allergy, then I got sneezing allergy with changing weather, then soar throat, and in the last I got viral fever. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
Now, let’s move to my outfit that I wore on Rakshabandhan. We celebrated rakshabandhan at my husband’s aunt’s (Mausi) place. Though I miss my brother and cousins, it was a great fun with my in-laws.
I wore green Patiala suit at the occasion paired with golden footwear, pearl jewellery and a wrist watch.
I love wearing ethnic clothes on festivals, specially Patiala suits. I also like sarees.

Coasters

We went to Gurdwara Kesgarh Sahib and Virasat-E-Khalsa (also known as Sikh Heritage) in Anandpur sahib. Virasat-E-Khalsa is a museum of Sikhs. Its a beautiful place. It depicts the culture and history of Punjab. There was was one shop in which there were so many pretty things related to sikh culture. Iย  wanted to buy a lot of things from there but couldn’t ๐Ÿ˜ฆ . So i bought these Coasters only.

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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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.
ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰
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.
ย I used fabric/acrylic colours which are the perfect paint to use on canvas shoes.
Simply enjoyed painting my shoes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am in love with the new look of my canvas shoes. ๐Ÿ™‚
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

 

 

 

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

Mad for Blackย 

Jackets/vests

I am soon gonna stitch long khadi kurta in color grey for sure.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰
Do tell me if you also want khadi kurta. I’ll stitch one for you too.
Stay happy, stay blessed.
