I have never been to India, but I love the gorgeous style of this area. Thanks to a wonderful friend, Vix, of VintageVixen, she sent me a lovely skirt made of recycled silk Sari's, a necklace made of wool beads, a really funky sash/belt, and some cat earrings that were her beloved Mum's from the 80's, all wrapped in a silk bag from India as well ! She also sent a card that is made from a hand-painted leaf. Beautiful! My good cammy is down right now, so you will see photos of it soon. I am going to frame it. This was my first international package ! I am so honored, and have worn it twice already, but finally popped off some shots I feel are worthy of this beauty! Thanks, Vix! She is so awesome and her style is amazing! Vintage frocks, jumble boot sales ( I hope I said that right ;). a full time E-bay seller,a traveler and true Bohemian who loves India, and a dear heart. Her blog is a must read each day for me.
I paired the skirt with a billowy top and metal embellished glads and a vintage scarf, plus some giant hoops.
The vibrant colors of silk and gorgeous jewels.The art of beauty. There is nothing on earth as beautiful.
Honesty, as a Westerner, I think of Mother Teresa, Calcutta, Beautiful jewelry, Silver, Henna, Silk Sari's, ankle bells, and beautiful dark skin. Temples, lots of color, and lots of sun. A place where going bare-foot is considered lovely. I'm sure this is a skewed view, but as a fashion blog, I wanted to share the styles I most admire about India.
