A Summer of Ikat -Updated!

Share

Hi beautiful people,

We spoke earlier about some trends this summer. Remember?? No? Well refresh it here. And I gave my word that I’ll post more pictures Β wrt these trends that I’m in love with. So here are some glimpses of my travels. In Ikat. And in Lace.

Well, we went to Rome this summer and I walked the Roman streets in my Indian Ikat dress and guess what??? I was stopped on the road and complemented, not once, not twice but …thrice!! πŸ™‚ They found it to be ‘bellissimo’.

A desi at an old Roman door!

Psst..psst…between you and me..this garment is actually a short Β ‘anaarkali’ Β kurta, that I wore as a dress!

Give a twist to the norm and what you get is something that stands out and makes you stand out.

Shoes to match the dress and Roma of course!!

I also spoke about lace – a trend picking up this summer. While there are some crochet lace clothes waiting for their turn in my cupboard, others were worn. Out of all, I especially loved wearing this one. These crochet lace shorts are from Rio de Janeiro. They look like a cross between shorts and a mini skirt. They are stretchy, soft and super comfortable. I also spotted other fellow travelers in similar shorts, elsewhere in Italy. They looked and felt super cool πŸ™‚

Also presenting to you, my Indigo lace dress that I wore at a friend’s wedding in Mexico City.
