Desi twist

This month's challenge at Indian Fashion Blogger (InFB) was Indian Fusion - inducing 'Indian-ness' in your western wear/everyday wear. Basically, adding a 'Desi' twist to your outfit. Well, I had this kurta/tunic sitting on my wardrobe shelf for almost 8 months now, so this was going to be my item of experimentation for this challenge. I wore this cute desi ('Indian') kurta as a 'dress' - inspired from one of many Tanvi's innovative tricks to dress!

I got this kurta on my last trip to India and its actually a product of street-shopping in Mumbai (Thane station road to be precise). I have a long list of what I love about this dress - the unusual hem-line, empire cut, organic aka cotton fabric, puff sleeves and the cute green 'boottis' hanging from the side. This was a cute n comfy summer outfit for a coffee date with hubby :)
Well who says you need to stock up on summer dresses..there are other ways to 'dress up' too. So tell me, would try this trick and wear a Indian kurta as a dress ?

Linking this post for InFB Remix challenge, What I Wore Wednesday and Transatlantic blonde.

P.S.: This is my first outfit post after my hair-cut. I know, I have been cheating, posting flash backs for almost a month now. But kya kare...I have a backlog of outfit posts especially from my travels. So, you are gonna be seeing more flashbacks here n there :) hey, do let me know how you like the new look?? I know I loved it tooo much, it reminds me of my college days :)



What I am wearing: Kurta/Tunic: Street shopping, Mumbai; Necklace: JC Penney; Earrings: random boutique in Provincetown, MA; Black peep-toe pumps: Bandolino at DSW; Bag, Ring n Sunglasses: Aldo; Necklace 'worn as' bracelet: H&M











That's my 'Fall-color' inspired manicure - Hunter green!

Your title is apt "Desi Twist"
Adding that Indian ness helps in highlighting the dress.
Like the DOF in the last picture.

Love the Kurta/Tunic...would love a closet full for myself, especially with the Australian summer approaching. It looks so feminine and pretty, also cool and comfortable.

Stopping by from What I Wore Wednesday. Please come on over and say, "G'Day!"

The Kruti is so pretty! I would never have the 'balls' to wear Indian clothes like that, haha. Since I don't usually wear it often, I love to keep it ethnic and traditional when I do. But I love it as a dress, creative! I like your feather ring, I have the same exact one :)

stylemeeh said...

Wow! Really nice way of wearing a tunic as a dress. Love the ring you are wearing.
