First day of the 4-day Eid weekend saw us window-shopping in Dragon Mall, and I decided to dress up my casual denims with the funky Auto Rickshaw shirt from Quirkbox. I bought this gorgeous shirt from Orange Boxy (yup! the same super-awesome online retailer who sells the uber cool Habibi coffee mug!).
For those of you who don’t know what an auto rickshaw is, it s a 3-wheeler public taxi that is very popular in the Indian subcontinent. If you’ve been to Thailand, an auto rickshaw is the Indian equivalent of a Thai tuk tuk.
The auto rickshaw has become an icon in Indian pop art, and the super funky brand Quirkbox takes it a step further with this flying auto rickshaw print; an auto rickshaw suspended on a flying hot air balloon!
I love the very textbook style sketch on this shirt, and the contrasting orange with the sober steel grey makes this shirt funky, yet very ladylike and elegant.
The Quirkbox Auto Rickshaw shirt is made of luxurious Chanderi silk, and this gives the shirt a delicate sheen that makes it just that little more dressed up than an ordinary tee.
With a dressy shirt like this, you don’t need much else. I’ve kept my accessories minimal to let the shirt shine through.
