*my indian valentine*

last year for valentine’s day, i went for that more va-va-voom bold look in red chiffon & black leather.  this year, i wanted to go more demure & had some pink pieces all set aside.  unfortunately, the perfect pink outfit i had envisioned (to put it in project runway terms) did not translate well once i had put it on.  hence this last minute outfit which i must say, would have been more appropriate for the indian wedding i attended, but still ended up looking pretty good!

even managed to get outside just in time to catch that last glimpse of “golden hour” sun…to perfectly match the sunset colors of my “jacket.”  i say jacket because this was a dress i got from ebay, but did not fit.  luckily, there was a seam that ran right down the middle that with just a quick zip of a seam ripper, converted a too tight dress into a wearable & more versatile jacket :)

wearing: vintage indian jacket/dress from ebay || rodarte x target nude tulle dress || kohl’s nude fishnets || madeline girl platforms

accessories:  engagement ring & substitute band || opal stackable ring || hawaiian style jewelry gold bangles with enameled name personalization || vintage gold tassel necklace (gifted from gma) || LF stores rhinestone snake ring

off now to a late dinner with the ol’ hubby :)  however you celebrated valentine’s day, hope it was lovely!


*saris as far as the eye can see*

speaking of indian wedding…here is just a mere tiny sampling of the beautiful brocades, eye-catching embroidery, sumptuous silks & amazing arm parties that surrounded me that night!  i’ll just let the photos speak for themselves ^_^

*navy sheer & gold for an indian wedding*

wearing: see by chloe sheer dress ($5 filene’s basement GOOB score!) || h&m gold dress (swapped) || n.y.l.a gold/mesh ankle booties (similar)

oh wow…looksie!  a regular ol’ outfit post.  FINALLY!  hahaha!  it’s been a crazy month, so i’m grateful for this very lazy, yet still busy & fun 4-day thanksgiving holiday weekend.  MDH & i didn’t go to my in-laws in PA as we typically do for thanksgiving as we had our friends’ wedding to attend here in boston.  our friends are indian & i wish i had ended up getting a traditional sari to wear, but i was also happy with the appropriately festive & sufficiently gilded outfit i ended up putting together :) 

accessories:  aldo outlet earrings || asos ankle cuffs || express gold coins belt (from high school!) || ebay acrylic clutch || vintage mink stole
