A reversed Cinderella story

Bollywood movies are commonly known for their unrealistic love stories that could hardly happen in real life. But let me tell you a real life story that sounds no more realistic than any Hindi movie or a fairy tale. The story happened in the second half of the 19th century in Kapurthala that was a Princely State of Punjab at the time. Princess Gobind Kaur was a daughter of Maharajha of Kapurthala and since childhood had lived in great luxury and splendour of the court of her father. She was married at the age of 12 to a nobleman of great wealth and position. Thanks to her royal status she didn't have to move to her husband's house as tradition required but stayed at her own six-storeyed palace. Nevertheless the life there was pretty boring.


Yellow is for summer!

Yellow is such a happy colour full of energy and positive. There are many shades of yellow of course but for me the first association with yellow that comes on mind is sunshine. Sunshine, summer, warmth, holidays...All nice and pleasant things...But I have never worn yellow before. I just avoided it without even trying it on. Why? I wonder...I guess I just thought that yellow would not suit me, that it is not my colour. But then one day not so long ago I finally decided to try something yellow on, not expecting much of it but mostly out of curiousity. To my surprise I liked myself in yellow: I looked instantly brighter and even felt more cheerful. So, now I have two yellow things in my wardrobe and I am really happy with them.


Perfect for summer: white cotton blouse

Last night I saw a dream...I was shopping and in a pile of sale clothes I found a bundle of money. Took it, came home, counted...Man! There was 3000 $! Shame, but such lucky things happen with me only in dreams. In reality every cent must be earned.
To the outfit now. This blue maxi skirt seems to become one of my favourite pieces this summer. You've already seen me wearing it here and here and today is a new combination, with a white cotton blouse.


Indian designers: what to wear this summer

I guess not many of you are familiar with Indian designers. There are a lot of them who create not only ethnic Indian dresses but very interesting designs that can be worn by any woman anywhere in the world. Here are a few works by different Indian designers from the 2014 collections. The choice was made according to my personal liking, I would gladly wear any piece of the shown clothes.

I am not a big fun of bugs but this insect-inspired dresses by Jenjum Gadi do look appealing to me.


Wearing palazzo pants

Though monsoon has started here the weather is still pretty hot - around 30, plus the rains have brought humidity. Yet I see many girls here wear skinny jeans. I just wonder how they can bear it. The only trousers that I can bear in this weather are the palazzo pants. They are cool and comfortable to wear on hot summer days. No wonder I have several of them in my wardrobe. Here are three different looks with three different palazzo pants.
