Vogue or Conventional? 2.0

Recently I had started a post wherein I tried to show outfits that may look trendy and completely western, but, can be worn as an Indian wear with the right accessories. You can check out that post here "Vogue or Conventional? 1.0". This post is also similar to that, but instead, here I have taken a kurti and styled it in a western wear, thus explaining the title vogue or conventional.

Now, If you are my regular reader you must be knowing about my love-hate relationship with Indian outfits. But being a blogger one has to keep creating new looks and inspire its readers. Today's post main element is "KURTI". 

It was one of those days went I was feeling very inspired and wanted to come up with something different. Generally, I don't raid my mom's wardrobe for any fashion inspiration or looks, for obvious reasons that our fashion needs are poles apart! But the blogger in me was feeling confident and so I went to her closet. To my surprise, I found a kurti that was some! The hot pink color and the flow-y material had my attention immediately! And how can one miss the awesome contrasting embroidery at the hemline? You know embroideries are back in trend and you are finding it everywhere- tops, dresses and even footwear!

So, I took this hot piece of kurti and wore it to see how it would look. Well obviously it was over-sized, but you, everything large and over-sized is very vogue lately. One can wear just a large kurti as a dress and head out, with lots of funky accessories. But I wanted to add more elements to the look. First I took this embroidered belt, which is a DIY I made out of an old Anarkali. The belt has only one job, accentuating the waist and its pretty good for those oversized outfits. Next, I added a grey shrug from Desi Charm, which had pompom details and a fringed hemline. I was not yet complete with the look, so I decided to add a simple thin waist belt. What I have done here is I have tied my belt over the shrug, making my shrug fixed to my waist (if that is the right term), making my waist more prominent. The whole look is very colorful and full of drama, so I  decided to go with these subtle beige stilettos I got from Jabong

I never thought I would wear something from my mom's closet. But the outcome made me proud of my fashion sense. As a blogger, you just learn to love every clothing elements from every category and make it your own. Hope you guys liked the Vogue or Conventional post series.
