When it comes to prints, I usually shy away from really loud, big ones. Big flowery prints scare me the most. I prefer dainty prints that do not dominate the outfit but add to its aesthetics in a subtle manner. This voile spliced see-through high waisted dress from Zaful with its flowy net texture and bird prints is a perfect example. The dainty bird prints and the over-all texture of this dress makes me feel super feminine.
Since its Diwali and a lot of you might not prefer Indian wear during the festive season, a dress like this can be such a relief. The dress is a perfect amalgamation of east and west and has an Indian feel to it despite being clearly western. Thats the trick, when it comes to emulating Indian wear without actually wearing one, always go for long flowy dresses with a feminine touch to it. You can also accessorize it with gold, we all know gold is very Indian.
Speaking of Diwali, what are your plans for it apart from the usual? I for one am planning to paint pottery. I recently painted some diya’s at my office as part of a diwali celebration week and fell in love with how therapeutic it is. I have never been a painter, the idea of painting something that resembles real life on paper annoys me. And lets not talk about modern arts please. Don’t get me wrong, I love arts, I love how intricate a painting can be when it resembles scenes from real life, renaissance is one of my favourite time periods. But its not something I have the patience to do myself. But when it comes to painting objects, it really doesn’t have to mean anything. You can paint any ornamental patterns and it will still look beautiful – you don’t necessarily have to be a Picasso.
