How’s your week going? Apologies for the blog being off lately. I was going through a lot of stuff at once which kind of needed more attention, that I couldn’t take out enough time needed to share new posts. So here I am back again with another guest post from one of my sister’s closest friend Sushma. I believe that fashion is everywhere in our day to day life, and its just the perspective with which we look at the things that matters. She kind of proves the same through her post. So let’s know her “Story of styling a Kurti into a Dress” in her own words.
My husband and I were heading to Nagarjunasagar Dam, which is
one of the popular weekend getaways from Hyderabad. I was looking to dress up
in really comfortable cotton clothes, yet trendy, for hot Indian weather.
I’m someone who always shops more for less, but shops good!
My friends, colleagues have always admired my shopping sense and they say I
have an eye for good things. Off late I was shopping only online that I refused
to purchase something offline. But I did not find my comfy-trendy summer dress
One evening, in a mall close by, I found this bright white
& indigo print no slit kurti (Indian ethnic costume) in my size priced for 800
INR ($12) and it was on half-price sale (I got it for $6). The kurta also had
pockets, which is very rare. My immediate belief was I can transform this in to
a trendy dress, with minimum styling and accessories. Without further notions I
grabbed it and bought it without trying!
Back home, I started to style this dress. Since it did not
have any slits and it was an A-line kurti, it was an easy task. All I did was
paired it with a thin brown colored belt, a statement boho neck piece and ear rings,
and metallic slip-on sneakers which complimented the whole look.
And there it was my
styled dress. I received a lot of praises for this idea, dress, and the
I always target a white background for my clicks since they
enhance the whole effect!
Go ahead and try this, don’t be shy to experiment with
clothes, who knows what you end up transforming!!!!
I completely love how she transformed a simple kurti, into a voguish outfit. I’m in love with your neck piece. Thank you Sushma for sharing such a lovely inspiration. As always thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you all loved the post like I did. Feel free to share your ideas or thoughts in the comments section. I will see you again with a new post.
