Phulkari Scarves

I spotted these scarves on today and I like the way they look!

They have a real ethnic feel to them without looking on the hippy side and with tribal prints being very much in vogue I think they can add a bit of oomph to a plain outfit...

This gave me the idea that many of us probably have heavy dupattas from the 90's (or I suppose even more recently as heavy dupattas are a classic) that we can reuse in the same fashion? These 'scarves' look pretty much like dupattas to me... wait, scarf, dupatta its all the same!

If you don't have any in your wardrobe then the ones on the website are reasonably priced and you could double them up for Asian wear too - just have a simple suit made in one of the colours for double use!

Satya Paul

I like all things vibrant.

Colours are beautiful and I love it when a designer is able to fuse different shades together to form a beautiful print and at the moment I think satya Paul is doing a really good job of this!

Ive never ordered online from Satya Paul although I have purchased their saris from retailers. The website is really easy to navigate and I have a few saris on my radar - I believe there are a few UK retailers so will go and check them out myself if not I'll order online.

What I like best about these Sari's is that they stand out, make a statement and there isn't a single embellishment in sight! Its nice to move away from heavy embellishments and in particular net as its hard to find anything these days which doesn't feature one of the two!

Satya Paul have also just launched a new line Take a walk on the wild side’ as the name suggests this range is inspired from the Jungle. This particular line by Satya Paul is made of high quality soft silk fabrics in screen and digital prints. Screen and digital prints seem to be a trend gathering much momentum at the mo....

This collection is mostly tiger and leopard prints but what caught my eye is this lehnga! This is a beautiful ombre lehnga, a  fusion of modern rich ornamental work with traditional Gota texturing. The flouncy lehenga is beautifully complimented with a shaded net dupatta and would make a lovely reception outfit for someone looking for something with a modern/fusion look. At $3000 roughly £1900 this is well priced  bridal designer wear  too - Me like!!

Well once I was finished with looking at lehngas I didn't need I decided to take a peak at other bridal wear - OMG - How gorgeous are these??

This Sari is simply stunning!!!
