This skirt is my recent addition to my wardrobe. I like things in ethnic style and when I saw this skirt on the mannequin in one of the Kathmandu shops I just could't resist to buy it. I already had a skirt with African giraffes on its print, now I have one with Indian elephants.
The problem with such skirts is to find the right top. Here I'm wearing my new skirt with a top that actually belonged to one of my daughters when they lived here with me. It is of ethnic style as well and has elephants in its print too. I don't know why (maybe for pure amusement or maybe it was the designer's creative idea) but the elephants on the front side of the top are placed upside down.
Anyway, I like it this way too and I love the the slit-ed sleeves of it. I added a wooden necklace and Indian bangles to the look and dressed like this headed for the Indian handicrafts charity bazaar.
I really love Indian handicrafts and on events like this there are always many things that catch your eyes. This bazaar was no exception. Big choice of beautiful pottery
My favourite stall - jewelry from Jaipur
And that's what I bought there: a clay vase and an embroidered cotton dress from Jaipur
enameled silver ring and earrings; a silk-cotton scarf with amazing print; a set of wooden bangles hand-painted in Madhubani style
Hope you are enjoying your weekend! Have a nice day!
