Hi Chiffon Talkers :) We’re back. We started this blog a couple years ago and in between something called LIFE happened, so we took a little break. Since then, we’ve been posting on Instagram here and there but decided what we really missed and wanted to get back to was actual blogging. We’re taking a different approach this time, with a lot more general lifestyle/fashion/beauty posts, but we will always take time to post about what brought us here in the first place–South Asian Fashion. Our posts will be divided into daily topics and we’re hoping that gives you (and us) a little organization and order with all that we have to share. So welcome back (or hello for the first time) and please join in on the topics by commenting and sharing. Love, Omna & Ritu
We like Wednesdays...keeping this category simple and easy with a collection of whatever we’re into at the moment. To start with, we’re sharing this image from designer Mani Jassal. We love the styling here–so on-trend and beautiful.
Thrifty Tuesdays is one of our favs–who doesn’t love finding great pieces under $100? We’ll use this slot to highlight some super cute finds that are an easy buy, too. And of course we have to begin this series with an Amazon find. Amazon is seriously getting better and better with their fashion offerings... like this coin necklace. I wanted a chunky, link chain, toggle style, coin necklace (very specific!) and found this beauty–I love how it looked layered with some of my tried-and-true pieces. And at $18 bucks, with prime shipping, it was a win.
Next are these gorgeous Zara quilted heels. Love that super-chic and trending square toe. Such fun, easy update to your footwear.
Our last “find” is another Amazon shoutout, this time for their newish shopping category called The Drop. This “fashion shopping experience” will feature limited-time collections designed by influencers, and so far it looks good. Leonie Hanne is the latest influencer to drop a collection and we’re loving that pink blazer. Omna wore a pink blazer dress from Revolve some time ago and it’s exciting that you can get a similar version via this drop for under $100.
Luxe Mood Mondays is all about the luxury pieces we’re coveting and putting on our wishlists… so starting it off is going to be our current obsession–Amina Muaddi shoes. We’ve actually been drooling over her gorgeous heels for some time now but the obsession keeps growing with every new collection she drops. That signature flared heel gets us every time. They’re basically the sexiest shoes ever and always sold out. Here’s a few with a few sizes still available–links below image.
Next up is another shoe brand we’re loving–Paris Texas. Love the glam-western vibe. No wonder they’re an influencer favorite ;-)
And for our last luxe find for today, we have to talk about House of Hackney, a British interiors and lifestyle brand that has the most gorgeous home pieces. Right now we are lusting after their statement pillows….they’re like pieces of jewelry for your sofas…so luxe.
Starting off our South Asian Fashion Fridays with a label we just learned of and are liking so far–Nazm-E-Itrh. We saw their crushed silver lengha on Kareena Kapoor Khan earlier this week and the look definitely caught our eyes. A quick look at their collection shows some really beautiful pieces–there’s that sense of opulence and grandeur we love, but it’s done in a simple, subtle, sophisticated way. We don’t know where it’s available to shop yet, but check out their Instagram and message if you’re interested.
Next on our radar is this gorgeous Kaftan by Shop Kynah. We love a good kaftan (which would also work as a gorgeous maternity dress) and this color and style is so pretty. We’ve ordered from Shop Kynah before, sent them questions and all, and their customer service, shipping, and product were all great.
Chikankari on Etsy–yup! I took a bit of a risk with this one as I’ve never ordered Indian clothes from Etsy before, but it ended up being a great purchase all around. The reviews, images, and fast customer service all convinced me to go ahead with ordering. I went with a white floor-length anarkali and paired it with my own dupatta. If you want anything casual in chikankari, definitely check this shop out. The peach sari (right) that’s currently listed actually looks like it would be so pretty for a party, too…
And finally we come to these amazing new images from Masaba’s upcoming collection–LOVE the vintage vibe and those prints. We’re not sure when it’ll be available to shop, but you can find a similar look by Masaba here.
Here we go with the first roundup of our Insta-Story series called #these3things. We’re always saving/recommending/wanting a whole host of things, be it a beauty product, a great podcast, a new look we tried, or the latest must-have fashion item. And that’s how #these3things was born–a way to post all this random stuff into one nice little Insta-Story package. For our posts here, we’ll highlight the most popular of these “things.” Enjoy!
