Hi you all! 🙂
Hope you had an amazing weekend! I have been on and off with work as well as blog posts lined up for the coming few weeks. Amidst all of this, my blog had a mishap recently because of which I could not post anything for almost a fortnight. You will see that we are back to the old blog theme as of now. That’s because we are currently fixing the mishap that happened and since I was literally waiting to post frequently, I thought I should use the old theme temporarily until that is fixed. Looking at it from a positive point of view, it’s been exactly a year since our last blog anniversary and maybe, just maybe, it’s a throwback as to how we started with our blog with this theme in 2014. 🙂
Anyhoo, since it’s the season of festivities, I thought I should do a post like last time where I give you a few outfit ideas that I have in mind for this festive season and something that you can totally pull off on any special occasion. 🙂
Talking about traditional Indian wear, I would like to introduce you guys to a new multi-designer boutique store in Bangalore called Anahe! Started by 26-year old Afrah Musvee, Anahe aims at filling the void between designer wear that is super expensive and not easily available for a larger audience who are value-conscious with designer collectives that are reasonably priced between INR 3000 – INR 35000.
The store Anahe has Parisian vibes to it with all the designer wear arranged in a wonderful color palette. ♥ I fell in love with the decor -the sewing machines on the wall and the rustic cupboards, doors – oh so vintage! 😀
Anahe’s multi-designer store has a large collection of clothes to choose from – be it a wedding, engagement or a evening party! From traditional golden lehengas to casual western wear, Anahe has a lot to offer. Apart from designer wear, the store also has designer clutches and accessories which are drool-worthy.
My favourite from the store was clearly this golden cape lehenga with a OTT bling blouse by designer Jannat Mehra. ♥ I LOVE anything that screams Bollywood glamour especially when it comes to ethnic wear so I couldn’t stop myself from styling this one. If it were my engagement, I would have picked this up without second thoughts. 😛 The intricate sequin details on the cape and the way this lehenga tugs on at the waist is just wonderful. I got so carried away that the pictures speak for itself 😛 If you are looking for something BLING this Diwali, this one would be a great pick! I added no jewellery except for maang-tika. Anahe also houses accessories and they have a wide range of pearl, kundan earrings etc
Another favourite from the store is this dhoti saree by designer Mandira Bansal 🙂 The effortless ready-to-wear drape of the saree and how structured the whole ensemble is made me fall in love with it. The intricate detailing on the blouse and the pop of colour makes it even more beautiful for any festive occasion! 😀 I added golden and red accents to the whole look with a golden/red combination clutch and stilletos.
If you are someone who loves traditional wear and you’re looking for something semi-formal this festive season, Anahe has a lot of options to choose from. The store is located in Indiranagar and houses many other designer pieces as well.
I hope you liked this post as much as I have loved compiling this one!
