Recent Purchases

Hello everyone!

Today I am going to share a round-up of my recent purchases.

I was on a holiday trip for 20 days and went to Chandigarh, Anandpur Sahib, Golden Temple, Delhi and to some other places. Where ever we went, I grab something. I didn’t end up finding what I was looking for but did buy a few other things that weren’t on the list.

Let’s see what I have purchased.

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. I  wanted to buy a lot of things from there but couldn’t 😦 . 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 😀

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.
