I know, I know! I’ve been having a little of a dry spell here on the blog and some other areas in my life, but I think I’ve reconnected. In all honesty the digital world does get to me every now and then..the constant need of updating the blog, FB or Instagram does feel a little weighed on. What happened to the good old days where I blogged just cause “I” wanted to?! I needed a break and I think it worked out just fine because it made me reconnect with the idea of why I blog. So yes, this post is a little late but it needed a mention and here it is.
For all your NIFTians out there, the name “Appreciation of Indian Textiles”, will probably take you back to one of our modules. This was one of my favourite classes whilst studying at NIFT, purely because of the tales woven behind these beautiful fabrics our culture boasts off. From ikat to kantha, I loved every bit of the history connected to these rich looms. I had a phase where I had a love affair with kurtas, kurtis and indian textiles, but somewhere down the lane, these ensembles found themselves hidden at the back of my closet. In a scavenge hunt for finding the perfect Diwali outfit, I found some kurtas and dupattas that I’d hardly worn and needed some love. The look that I’ve put together for this post is something I’d wear on a casual occasion that needs a little ethnic to it. What I like about it- it’s minimal, fuss-free and doesn’t necessarily come along with the bling of festive ethnic. My pick was a simple yet elegant chikankari anarkali, a quilted kantha stole, jhootis (gifted by Lekha) and a bangle from Aprajita Toor’s collection.
♥ Love to Lekha and Abhay for being my team
♥ Prashant, missed you this Diwali
