I am a scarf hoarder, and can’t resist picking up pieces with particularly eye-catching prints and colour combinations. A scarf is a versatile summer wardrobe must-have, and I just wanted to do a recap on how I manage to wear one of my favorites in three totally different styles:

We are in the age of advocating recycling, and here I am recycling an old post you might have missed ­čÖé I bought this scarf from Zara about a year ago, and love its funky leopard print and gorgeous turquoise hue. So fresh and summery without being a cliche floral I’d say!

Suchita Pandey, the very talented designer behind the Indian and Indo-Western label ‘Suchita’s Stylista’, is making a comeback in the Numaish Summer Show 2016 (scheduled to be held at Hotel Conrad from 29th to 30th April).

I had the pleasure of meeting Suchita at the Numaish Winter show, and still get asked about the gorgeously unique red bandhani dress she gifted me (you can see me in it here). I am therefore super excited to see what she has in store for us for Summer 2016. Read on for a sneak peek!

I was at the Numaish Winter Show last Saturday, and spent a good deal of time (and money!) on the colourful designer items up for sale. Have a browse through the Numaish gallery to see some highlights from the event by clicking here.

A number of upcoming designers had stalls at the Numish Winter Show, many of whom had come down from overseas.

However, Suchita Pandey from the Suchita’s Stylista brand is a UAE resident! This is great news for us UAE dwellers as you can choose from her extensive range of Indian and Indo-Western outfits, and have them tailored to your individual size and tastes, and local delivery ensures you get your parcel super fast ­čÖé

Eid Ul Fitr is the festive ending to a month-long devotional month of fasting on the Muslim calendar. With just over 2 weeks to go, it would be a good idea to start planning out the Eid wardrobe and avoid the maddening pre-Eid retail rush.

For┬áEid, I love playing┬áethnic dress-up. There’s something magical about traditional Indian attire. The bright clashes of color, the heavy embroidery and the majestic use of chiffon and silk add feminine grace to any silhouette. However, I for one do not get many opportunities to dress up completely ethnic. I prefer Indo-Western; the marriage of somber Western cuts with a spark of Indian fiesta can be carried off for other occasions beyond Eid, hence giving me more wear per buy.┬áToday’s post is a pictorial wishlist of Indo-Western outfits I┬áhave shortlisted. Wishing I could own them all!
