Love For Block Prints

Hello Everyone!!!, First of all I wish all the wonderful women around the world HAPPY WOMENโ€™s DAY !!! ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ. I am so proud to be a women ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผ.For me the word Women means a lot , it defines bravery, fearlessness, commitment, responsible and not giving up on her dreams . I got lot of motivation and zeal from most wonderful women on the Earth โ€”my MOM, this post is dedicated to her and all women out there who inspire me to march towards my dreams.

This post is all about depicting Indian fabrics with contemporary style. My mom loves these fabrics her favorites are chiffon, georgette, silk and cotton even I developed interest on them because of her. My taste is more ethnic I prefer ikkat , pochampali and block prints more on Indian fabrics they give a modern look with traditional touch . The current on going trend in market is block prints and Ikkat. Many designers have fallen for them. The two outfits I have chosen are for family/ friends gatherings and religions gatherings as well.

I think I gave a lot of introduction, so now itโ€™s time for my first outfit, I bought this from Fabindia- they have a huge collection of handmade ethnic fabrics. Its a flared long block print kurta. I liked the way they came with regular colors in a scenic way and red green and cream are most widely used colors so anyone would look good on this. What made me go for this one was the neck pattern it had boat neck pattern with frills near the shoulder . This was first time I had something like this. Coming to accessories, Iโ€™m not huge fan so I went with Jumkas you can also go with small studs or medium sized earring donโ€™t go for too long ones, and simple chain on the neck like mine would be suitable , you can go with a single bangle or bracelet
And even watch would pair perfect as well. For footwear you can either go with my choice jutis that I wore as in the picture or any flats or ballet flats and even sandals would look good to.

The my next outfit is from Max, this is first time I have tried this store , I am impressed by their collection. This also has a flared style but this is like a maxi dress pattern kurta. Itโ€™s basically tie and die cotton kurta which gives you an impression of block pattern. I really love the colors, because of the colors I wanted this dress. Texture of this cloth is very smooth and soft . I accessorized this outfit similar lo the above one. Go for small and medium sized earrings , you can avoid wearing anything around neck as this outfit has closed neck style. I choose white heels ,as the kurta has bright colors so I didnโ€™t want to over power my outfit, so white was the best option, even tan would also go.

For my Makeup I used Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, bare minerals Pro powder, Rubywoo by MAC and Loreal divine wine lipstick shades.

This time Michigan had lots of snow and now its time for more sun and long duration of day.I hope you guys have fun reading this post and find some interesting ideas for your outfits.
