Hey Lovelies!! I hope you’re all doing great! I know I know, yet again I’ve been missing for a while now. But, trust me, this post is going to make up for the time that I wasn’t active. Without further ado, let’s begin..
As, I just posted on Instagram, there is nothing that really makes me happy than getting all dolled up in an Indian attire, true story! Ever since I moved to the United States, I’ve been missing those days back home, when I could wear all those gorgeous Kurtis and Anarkalis (Tunics), Salwars and Dhoti pants, beautiful sarees (Although, I’m not really comfortable wearing them, I fancy them a lot), and those beautiful Indian jewelries…ah! give me all of that! There would always be an outfit for every occasion, and an occasion for every outfit. Well, that’s how I would shop, I would always pick up an outfit and say, “This Anarkali is going to be so perfect for that upcoming event”. And, that upcoming event would be at least 3 months from the date…sshhh! A girl needs another pair of a gorgeous anarkali, doesn’t she? and what’s better? It’s now on sale!! So, I would go shopping with my girls, and pick up accessories to go with my new outfit. That feeling of coming home with those shopping bags was priceless! Well, not really, I just paid for them! But, you know what I mean!
Growing up, my parents would buy me a new pair of outfit for every Indian festival. There are so many of them, that I would be eagerly waiting for the festival, just to wear my new attire. That would be sooo exciting! I think that’s what I miss the most here, though I try to keep in touch with my culture and fashion, sometimes its hard. But, not anymore, want to know why? Because, now I’ve Indus Threads to count on!
Indus Threads is an online fashion rental platform featuring high end South Asian designers providing easy access to luxury fashion. They believe that access to luxury experiences should not be limited by the burden of ownership, which is true don’t you think? I had the opportunity to work with them, and experience their exquisite designer collections. I chose a Payal Singhal crop top and dhoti suit, as it defined me. I could relate to the design, the edgy crop top paired with the dhoti pants, adding that Indian touch was the perfect blend of fusion fashion. A rental platform? Yes! And, here’s how it works:
> Browse through their exquisite collection of sarees, lehengas, shalwar suits, anarkalis, dresses and jumpsuits.
> If you’re not sure about what to wear for an event and size, you can leverage their free in-studio, phone or skype fitting and they will connect you with one of their fabulous stylists who will help you select that perfect attire. And, each outfit also features customer reviews to help you decide.
> Now for the timeframe, they offer a 4 day rental service. If that isn’t sufficient, you can always request, and they will have it figured out.
> It’s advisable to choose a delivery date 1 or 2 days before the event so you have enough time to send the outfit if doesn’t work out.
> I received my outfit in a perfect condition with pre paid shipping label. They even handle dry cleaning cost of the outfit once returned.
I also had a chance to accessorise my look with a gorgeous traditional nose pin and kundan earrings by PTAH accessories. They have a really lovely collection of Indian jewelry, do take a look!!
