If you are from a typical South Indian Telugu family, you would be familiar with having a little treasure trove of gold jewellery thanks to your grandmothers, aunts and mom! While all the pieces that we have are gorgeous, delicate and lovely to wear, I only end up wearing them for random family functions and pujas. Those pieces are reserved for days when you wear pattu sarees and for special festivals. None of them are ever used as ‘everyday jewellery’. The idea behind this 3 part series (other looks are coming soon!) was to break this very notion that certain types of jewellery needs to be paired with only certain kind of clothes, and for specific occasions.
Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I decided to get a bit dressed up. As the previous post was about a desi inspired look, this time I went with a very feminine, Parisian look that felt like the perfect way to infuse a little romance & warmth into this day!
When it came to adding a little bling to the look, I picked one of those preserved-for-special-ocassions-only gold chokers that looked perfect on this outfit. It just makes you realise that there is no rule or definition when comes to fashion & styling. In fact, try breaking those typical fashion rules as often as possible, only then can you come up with something unique and new, and end up utilising everything in your closet to the fullest!
Wish you guys a very happy Valentine’s Day! And do comment on how you like this look! 🙂
