Cultural Connect

Hello Guys,

Firstly, a very happy and proud 70th Independence day to each and every one of you. We  Army brats always have a special connection with all these patriotic events, as I grew up watching my dad serving the Indian Army for 30 long years, and trust me, I am proud of him. Well, this post has nothing to do with the I-day celebrations but yes, it does engross some cultural value to what I wore today.

I always believe simplicity is what one can carry it all day long and giving it an ethnic touch is what makes it more enchanted. It was all of a sudden that yesterday I planned with my friend to do this shoot and decided the venue just an hour before heading to the location. And what could be better than the face of Hyderabad, the globally iconic Charminar.

I wore a single tone black dress, a typical top and maxi skirt, decided to team it up with five different colored dupattas. Dupatta has long been a symbol of modesty in South Asian dress, also known as Chunri, pacheri, orni,scarf, voni, chadar etc.. which is now widely used as decorative accessory. There is no single way of wearing the dupatta, and as time evolves and fashion modernizes, the style of the dupatta has also transformed.

Look Book Uno:

Lol!! The moment I reached, I just attacked that “Pani puri wala uncle”, “saw pani puri and couldn’t stop eating, hence that’s totally me”

Dupatta color– Orange, which I just did “one round wrap” on my neck

From – Pantaloons store “Chennai”



Look Book Dos:

Dupatta color– Multi color semi silk

From – Shilparamam, Hyderabad.

This one is my favorite, due to its vibrant multi-color i can just wear it with a variety of garments ranging from total white, black, red and almost all colors. Hey! Also with jeans and T-tops(plain).



Look Book Tres:

Dupatta Color – Red

Type – Bandhani

From – Amazon India

I’m sure every girl will have at least one bandhani dupatta in her wardrobe and if not, get one for yourself, it’s totally worth keeping and flaunt it with your plain colored kurthis and kameez.



Look Book Cuatro  :

Dupatta color– white

From- Shilparamam, Hyderabad.

This made it a monochrome look with minimalism touch to it.

“Simple & Beautiful”



Look Book Cinco:

Dupatta Color – Maroon

Type – I’m not sure about the type but this is my sister’s half saree dupatta which is known as “voni” in Telugu

Location – Tank Bund, Hyderabad

We thought of reaching the location in time to view the sunset, but courtesy of Hyderabad traffic, we missed it by “that much!”.




Accessories– Earring: Banglore city central, Neck piece: Shopping tweets (Instagram), Bangles: Charminar market.
