Jhumkas are an eternal favorite of mine. This one is a 22k gold masterpiece from VBJ Jewellers. It features a traditional peacock design worked in a delicate filigree pattern. The Jhumkas end in a lace like row of tiny golden droplets. The jhumka is designed in the form of a bell with a large golden drop found inside the outer cupola.

Green is for Go get it.. :D

I have been looking for something in a very bright green. Something versatile that would brighten up a dull day or a boring dress. I was thinking about a bag or bright green pumps.. but look what i found.. 




 I found this gorgeous standout Weatherproof "Harlequin summer" jacket. Its a beautiful beautiful colour. Its got this beautiful patchwork quilting going on and its so lightweight and so ideal for spring. The collar is a convertible one. Wear it with a mini-skirt or a slick pair of jeans. Either way its a guaranteed winner. You can buy this great jacket from Nordstorm at a 50% discount price of  $33.90. Dont wait too long.. its gonna be gone before you know it.

Its Spring in Africa..

Is it , really? I'm not sure but those are the two words that come to my mind when I look at this dress.. I'm not a great fan of jumpsuits. I love their idea and ease of wear but most jumpsuits just look wrong .. especially in the crotch area. All this just went out of the window since I saw this..






 Rejoice , you Marc Jacobs fans.. Its a double whammy today. This "Dashiki stripe cotton jumpsuit" is from the spring/summer 2010 collection of Marc by Marc Jacobs. I adore this dress.. It looks effortlessly pretty and chic. The sunflower yellow is so summery. the pockets are so flirty and fun. The sleeves, the neckline, the fitting, the length of the jumpsuit all look so comfortable and well finished. 
I love this Dashiki design too which is seen all through this collection. I'm gonna be looking out for more deals with this print in this collection, so stay tuned to this blog. In the meantime, you can buy this without even breaking your bank for a US$ 245.90 from Nordstorm. Its down from the original price of US$ 368. As I mentioned in my previous post, Nordstorm claims they have the lowest prices. So I made a search, this jumpsuit is also available in Net-a-porter.com but its for a GBP 414 which comes to US$ 639.50. So i guess Nordstorm is correct in its claim.

So you would be thrilled to find you can actually own a piece that is such a reflection of the ancient Indian jewellery design. This slice of heaven could be yours for INR 3250 and its is brought to you by Sakhi Fashions. The shipping is free in India while other countries may have to pay extra.

The Old Charm ..

In the new age of Kurtis and Mix and match, Traditional salwar-kameez seem old-fashioned. But two of them caught my eye recently. Imagine turning something old and traditional turned into something modern and unique.



















The salwar on the left is a gorgeous gorgeous silk number.The traditional beauty of silk saris is in all it splendour complimented with the ease and elegance of a salwar-kameez. The red and gold undertones would look good on any skin colour.. Team it with ethnic antique gold jewellery.. shoulder grazing chandelier earrings perhaps.. and prepare to set the party on fire.. 
The second Salwar is a stunning black, off-white and turquoise medley. I particularly like the turquoise accents. Its a versatile colour and i could easily imagine wearing chunky aquamarine jewellery or  adelicate long necklace.
You can get the silk one for INR 1891 from the link 
You can get the black salwar-kameez for INR 1599 from here 
Have fun shopping..

Speaking of peacocks..

Did anyone follow the Ms.Universe contest??? I feel its popularity may be waning these days.. Still.. for those of you , who havent heard.. The winner of this year's pageant is Ms.Mexico, Jimena Navarrete Rosete.. 
This years national costumes were hilarious (mostly)  stylish (rarely). 
Indian beauty , Ushoshi Sengupta posed in blue peacock styles dress .. designed by the Kolkata duo Dev R Nil




The dress puzzles me. It is obviously designed as a lehenga-choli. The wrap seems awkward. Nothing but the colours seem to be inspired by the peacock. It also seems heavy and over worked. Nothing light and delicate as a peacock. It makes me really sad that this is the representation for India's national costume.

Dance of the peacock

Western and Indian fashion dont fuse in clothing alone.. They also do in jewellery.. Case in Point - This beautiful peacock necklace from the House of Harlow - From the (now) famous Nicole Richie..


The pendant is amazing in its Indian-ness considering it comes form an American designer..I can imagine it easily enough with an beautiful blue sar or kurta. It would just as perfectly with a turquoise cocktail dress. You can buy this for $110 from shopbop.com. They ship internationally for free for any prouct above $100. So it s a great deal. I cant wait to get my hands on it. Beat me to it..
