Indian Dreams

Hello Lovelies!
I'm so sorry it's been so long since my last post!
I promise I'm alright, I haven't died...
I've actually been quite the busy bee lately. I just started a new job and I've been working on my fall class schedule. I'll be taking a couple of archaeological classes
as well as a class on the history of Indian religion.
There's something so beautiful, exotic and seductive about India.
Everything is so colorful and spectacular with a history that is as complex and rich as it is deep.
I grew up in a town with an extremely large Hare Krishna population, the largest in the world, actually...so Indian culture has always been (somewhat) a part of my life. It is, to me, beautiful in every way.

Bringing me to the topic of today's post...My sister and I have both
been on a bit of a Indian-themed kick lately. Bangles, Sarees, Choli, Mehndi; I just can't get enough!

Luckily, hints of Indian style are popping up on the runways and in department stores across the globe.



















Saree-esque draping, jewels and embellishments...I do believe I'm in heaven.

I'm a little pressed for time, so I can't upload all of the Indian inspired items
that I found, but I hope you enjoy these pictures.
Go out, buy yourself some embellished caftans, harem pants and bangles...
I don't think this trend can EVER go out of style.
