Code Blue..

I am a big fan of the color BLUE!! Well.. it's always been pink for girls and blue for boys.. but somehow pink takes a back seat for me.. I am more for the BLUE!! Whenever I go shopping my eyes always find things in blue.. So, I tell my hubby to say "no" to blue items cause I have enough of them... but sometimes I still buy them...

This dress is my own concept.. This was a Phulkari dupatta ( It's an Indian traditional wear from Punjab..) which I designed into a dress... I am a fan of this work from the start but living in US I don't have a lot of Indian wear occasions..  So, I though making a dress out of it would actually solve my purpose and I will still be able to wear this fab Punjabi Traditional Indian wear!!

I got it tailored from a very able and talented designer back in India... She added the pocket details to the dress.. which gives it a little edge...

What I'm wearing : Dress : designed by me; made from Phulkari.. you can know more about it here

The Embroidery on the dress is done by hand.. and that makes it an expensive affair.. but classy...
I paired it with my new Orange-maroon shoes (M in love with them) to give the dress a little contrast!! Keeping the handbag a neutral black and the accessories a mix of gold and blue!!

I was loving the cool evening breeze in my hair!!

No, I have not done anything to my hair.. these are the natural waves of my hair.. and I really like them!!

Shoes : Audrey Brooke (DSW)

Accessories : Earrings : Forever 21

My accessories : My favorite Bag : Da Milano (a splurge) ; Cuff : forever 21; Watch : Fossil
We went out for Hubby's birthday dinner yesterday and it was so much fun... We had reserved a tapas place with wine and everything.. it was a cozy place.. with great ambiance but din't like the food.. so we finished up our wines and went to freebirds world burrito.. and oh yea.. we loved it... for even the picky eaters like me.. we talked and laughed and had an amazing time...

    Indian designs/fabrics gives an extra edge to an outfit when we wear it. So much better than some of the monochromatic western outfits that we have in our wardrobe ! I do not know why but I always prefer Indian designs and fabrics over western ones even if I am wearing a western outfit.
    I am also loving your new shoes, great color and style. Really compliments your outfit/look.
    have a nice day !
