The night is dark and cold with the mercury dropping low unexpectedly bringing the entire city to a standstill. Setting my alarm for the following morning hesitatingly against springing up on my feet to a wintry morning. Pepper my nine year old cat’s presence redeems me from deep solitude. The night appears to be dragging while rescuing myself from boredom I begin scrolling painstakingly through my hard-disk for my erstwhile pictures. The eerie night browsed me to the attire I wore relating to an eerie fictional character.
I grew up dreaming from the scenes of ” The Arabian Nights ” as I have observed the fact that dreams are reflections to the activities we engage during the day.As a kid I was addicted reading to the stories from One Thousand and One Nights and one fine day a decade ago while walking through the streets of Ahmedabad I noticed these pants relating to Aladdin’s style sense.Few years ago I was tracked down by the kids from the town eager to know the style, now you can find it all over. A plump girl in Aladdin pants during the year of 2010 is blogging it down the line.
The signified transformation you get with these pants is amazing, some love it while few hate it. It’s the way you carry it.
The mirror work jacket is a traditional ethnic piece,its handcrafted by the local Kutchi artisans.This jacket takes around six months if the embroidery is micro delicate.
These pants are great for a lazy walk and exercises. You can enjoy it as a street wear.
These mystical Low Cut Harem Pants can easily be transformed into a jumpsuit.
It’s like bargaining for one outfit while obtaining two.
The knee length top or the kurti is high quality Linen and its tailored.
The Pointy toe pumps are from Woodlands 2005
I Cling Fondly For : The kurti is an organic linen dress with a high collar neckline.The Pants can easily be transformed into a jumpsuit,it can be great casual summer wear.The beautiful jacket stands apart for its value comprising of handcrafted labor by the tribals.
The Value of Fabric : The Top/kurti is made up of Linen. The pants are high quality cotton which is useful during the summers. The jacket is raw cotton a product from the interior village of Kutch.
If I Could Change One Thing : It would surely be the color of Aladdin pants. Leather handcrafted pointed Jhootis or mojris with traditional ensembles look great with this attire.
