Often, when I do a makeover for a person, I tell them that I need to see more of their personality.. the personality that their clothes reflects. I want to see more elements of their lifestyles, something that matches the occasion. for example, take resort wear- going out for a vacation is a time to let go, get free of the stuffiness of their routine lifestyle. so why not? why not do it completely, along with the clothing.. spice your clothes up a bit, go free, romantic, maybe, sexy.. for those few days that you spend away.
On a similar note, long weekend is coming up, and I’ve been hit by a surge of interested, prospective buyers who want to know what they can do for their weekend off… with their clothes, that is. This got me thinking, “What would I do?” So I pulled out my designing skills, and got this together ( this one for getting the pattern right i stitched the sample myself ) , something that I’d love to wear on my few days off, but not anywhere else.. something different. Here’s what i put together and photography by Rashmi did complete justice to the out fit . Accessorized with a watch and a handmade ring from Amrapalli .
So just analyze your lifestyle and your personality so you can have a wardrobe that fits that .

This dress from BAJA in pure chiffon, instantly lengthening your figure with its vertical stripes, and draping flatteringly, is perfect for a romantic night out. Designed to be versatile and perfect, the yoke at the back causes the dress to fall and drape beautifully.
It is lined with a stretchy, light weight fabric and its divided sleeves allow for much freedom of movement, and at the same time giving you exactly enough skin coverage to feel comfortable. The dress, called after its stunning hues, is named Orange Sherbet and effortlessly infuses functional glamor into your wardrobe. Sweet on its own, and stunning when accessorized, this dress will satisfy every one of your stylish whims and fancies.
My BAJA dress has something vaguely sailor-ish about that makes the air around me taste saltier than it should. Odd as it seems, it’s true. With tiny boats dancing across the dark blue background and a silver cummerbund around my waist, I’d like to emphasize the fact that traditional touches can be added to any dress, western as it is. Let those traditional pieces hit the roads once in a while, just with a little right tweaks to the outfit.
My necklace is no more a necklace that a bracelet would be as it is, not one piece, but a pair of my favorite silver anklets, linked together with the rings at the corners. My eye makeup is what I’d like to call old Indian, the sixties movie style- the winged eye. The fact is, opposed to popular belief as it is, that “traditionalistic” pieces or makeup can be paired with western, and they look fantastic. So take this as an invitation to raid your grandmother’s jewelry box, or take those pretty pieces out of the locked boxes they’ve been hiding in, and flaunt them!
Go ahead set your own rules 🙂
I love colors and i also love the simplicity of a dress, created these dresses with Indian vintage sarees that is delicate and spectacular fusion of Indian silhouettes with the western top up .
The bandhani saree , stylized by varying lengths of the pallu as pockets and also as the hoodie.
Silhouette in advanced version of Indian short kurta, with a rich mauve sweetheart neckline . Bold, sumptuous and inspired by Indian mythological era it stands out and speaks for itself.
So enjoy your Wednesdays wearing something different and as crazy as “U”
