Chanel goes Indian!

   In my last post i mentioned about the indian fashion influencing designers in the fashion world! I completely forgot to mention Uncle Karl and his latest Chanel show for which he turned the whole hotel into a Maharaja Palace! 
     This video is a treat! enjoy!

More tradtion & bling!

    I have to share some of the amazing dresses/ outfits i got to wear in india. Some were bought off the rack but two very special ones that i absolutely adore were made especially for mi.. Couture as some of us might call it! Aahhhh!
   You can not imagine the amount of time & money indian women spend every wedding season! $1500 is the going rate to have a beautiful heavy indian traditional dress made just for you & you multipy that by 3. Every season atleast 3 or 4 dresses! HOLY Shnickies!!
   Well i hope you love them as much as i do! :D
