Western turns Indian

This is a simple princess line dress with godet panels. The floral print and cotton fabric make it a good choice for hot summer days. The godet panels are of same pattern as the rest of the dress but of different colour combination which creates an interesting effect.

I wear my ethnic style turquoise necklace with this dress here.

Now look at the transformation of the dress: from a simple Western style dress it turns into a beautiful Indian outfit.

This set is from Biba. It consists of a dress, a semi-transparent silk yellow tunic worn over the dress, churidar pants and dupatta shawl. As always with Biba there are many small interesting details: the golden thread embroidery, the buttons' decoration and the shawls tassels.

When it is hot this outfit is a good choice to wear for a local semi-formal events.

  7. Hi! Olga, first time in your blog ,found you via Lialina.That's a great example of layering and both outfits are to be noticed. I've spent a year all over India when I was younger and fell in love with the abundance of color and the beauty of the women in saris.
