The outfit is super basic because I can’t stand to wear anything else during the heat. I mean let’s be honest guys, we try to plan out outfits a day ahead of time but we end up picking something in a span of 5 minutes, and we usually pick something we’re comfortable in. This is that kind of outfit. The material of the top is really thin, but it has a small thin fabric around the chest area inside, just so that you can wear any color bra without it being visible from the outside. I’ve paired it with a pair of Juthis I got from Banagalore, and a pair of Jumkas from Zahana Accessories. I’ve kept my makeup minimal as well, with just a little bit of concealer and my FAVORITE red lipstick the Maybelline Lip Gradation in Red 2.

This red leaf printed kurti is from Kalpa Druma. I was introduced to this store by my friend Varsha, and it’s a haven for people who love handicrafts and love to explore new “cultural” outlets . What I liked most about the boutique was their clothes, they had beautiful kurtis. kurtas, western wear, etc – the material of it all seemed so pure. Yes most of their kurtis can be a bit pricey, it can go up to 1000 rupees, but they have some for even 500 rupees, like the one I’m wearing. Honestly if you want to experience different products and have the time, you could end up spending hours here. They also have a diverse set of products from quilts, table cloths, curtain material, paintings ( semi-precious stone paintings), antique items, brass items, home decor, and lots of dress material along with finished clothing.

Kalpa Druma is located just opposite the Chola Sheraton hotel in Gopalapuram.

Preview: Summer Look-book

Here is a preview of a recent fashion photo-shoot I did. I actually did these about a month ago, but I was busy with other things for a while, but now I am back!

This summer look-book is based on this maxi skirt I purchased on Jabong. I absolutely love it. I will feature about five outfits in this upcoming look-book, it’s my first so I am very excited to share this with you guys. But more importantly I really want feedback from you guys, honest feedback: on what I can do to make it better, & your general thoughts!

Black Maxi Skirt- Miss Bennett (Rs. 800) 

Red Stripped Blouse- Ginger ( Rs. 400)

Sandals- Metro (Rs.800)

Jewelry: I made the blue bracelet as  DIY sort of thing, I combined the friendship bracelet with a large white pendant, that I found at a local crafts store. The white and grey bracelets are from my friends online jewelry store Trinkets Handmade Jewellery, and the aquamarine ring is from a set of rings I purchased for 2 pounds at Primark in London

I purchased the maxi skirt online on Jabong, and it was my first ever online purchase and I have to say it was so easy. I never tried it and I was a fool not to. The COD (cash on delivery) option is so easy and it’s worth the extra money for shipping because you avoid the fuss of having to use credit cards and such. I will definitely do a post on online portals that offer great deals and have a great collection of clothes!
