What I wore for an Indian wedding! Part 1

I thought I should share some Indian/ethnic looks since I am in India travelling and will be attending so many Indian weddings.

 

Mehendi function:

I got this kurti designed with gold motifs for the function as all the bridesmaids were getting matching dupattas and had to wear an outfit around that. We had so much fun and danced so much.  This beautiful jewelry I wore was given to us by the brides mother.

Wedding day:

It was THE day and the bride looked so so so good, elegant and radiant. Her outfits were so unique and amazingly detailed.

The functions and rituals were amazing I also made a lot of Delhi friends.

So about my outfit!

This was my most favourite ootd. I love love this lehenga my mom picked this up for me! 

She got the ready made materials from Bhuleshwar (Mumbai, India) they have amazing shops there.

I did not make the blouse with the original fabric because I wanted to mix and match so I used a long sleeve velvet saree blouse .

I wore these amazing velvet mules designed by Artbyat. If you read my previous blog you know what I am talking about. 

And I completed the look by using a Maang tikka. I can’t even describe how much I loved this look.  

I wore my pink Burberry bag with all my Indian outfits as it was comfortable and could carry all my belongings, specially my Polaroids

Art on footwear!!

I love shoes and I wanted something unique and comfortable to wear with ethnic as well as western outfits. Mainly slides that are easy to travel with and have colours that go with all my clothes.

My friend Aradhana has an amazing online footwear collection.

Every design is so unique and amazingly detailed. I had a hard time deciding on a pair finally I chose these. I love velvet if you follow my blog you know my love for velvet and the tassel detailing caught my attention. I have already worn these for an Indian wedding with my lehenga. 

Every foot wear in her collection is a work of art in itself.

I know we are heading towards Fall but I still want it to feel like summer. My outfit of the day is still inspired by summer and tropical kind of vibes and I want to keep it that way as long as possible.

When it’s comes to a summer look my favourite accessory to go to are sunglasses. 

I came across Hot Miami Shades through instagram, they have an amazing collection of sunglasses as well as clothing and other accessories. 

I got these really cool retro shades called So Miami for you, in the colour pink. I love the look it gives me tropical vibes.

Everybody is loving the T-shirt dress trend these days, so I decided to show a look inspired by that! I wore a large white with vibrant colours men’s T-shirt as a dress.

I wanted this look to be colourful, fresh, breezy and comfortable.
This look is mainly inspired by Indian and Mexican fashion.

I got these vibrant earrings from a street shop in Colaba Causeway market in Mumbai, India – I loved it as soon as I saw it, mainly because it was colour full, fun and has a lovely mirror detailing.

This pretty white top I found at a street shop in Cuernavaca, Mexico when I went there for a trip. I loved this coz it was simple yet funky. The embroidery on this top is so beautiful. I love finding items that having embroidery details or any type of embellishments.

The denim shorts I wore are also from a street shop in Sarogini market in Delhi, India.

I completed this look with my colorful mules that i bought from Urban Planet and a bright shade of orange lipstick from Color Bar which I also picked up from India.

Honestly this look is not my personal style because I don’t usually wear a combination of traditional with western, but I might just start doing this. This style might just be my new fav look.
Hope you like this look, please let me know your personal style in the comments below. 👇🏽

What I wore for a wedding in Canada! #kesiaandfebryan #ootd #wedding #life

Been quiet some time since I posted a what I wore to a wedding content.
It was so nice to be a part of Kesia and Febryan’s wedding.
The wedding was at Cambium Farms. Everything was spectacular from the ceremony to the wedding party. I went there in a fancy Limo with my friends, popped a champagne.
It was a June wedding so I decided to dress up summery with a little bit of vintage vibes. I decided to wear something that is not usually my style. I wore a cute yellowish/gold cold shoulder dress. I knew there would be lots of dancing so I decided to wear sandal. I decided to go contrast with my shoes so I wore these open toe wedge sandals in red. They were so comfortable and I think red is becoming my new favourite colour. Since they was so much going on with my frilly dress I decided to not wear to accessories too much and just added my new Nadri necklace. This dainty necklace along with my name necklace went really well with the whole look.
