Bollywood

Burgundy velvet jacket, Cami. Black top and gray tulip skirt, Moda International. Patterned tights, Merona. Black pumps, Bandolino. Metal and enamel earrings, World Market.

I’ve long been enamoured with all things Indian. I think it started with the food, but has since expanded to include the music, art, textiles, fashions, culture, literature, and the movies. I haven’t seen many Bollywood films, but that’s only because I’m restricted to the Blockbuster brick and mortar store and they aren’t carried there. Instead, I get my Bollywood fix through repeated viewings of The Guru (which I own) and my Best of Bollywood CD.

Today, this is my nod to India: metal and enamel earrings and a Nehru jacket.

i love your blog! It helps me to see the creativity waiting to happen in my own closet. You always know how to rock out with patterned tights.
I am still in my black/gray/brown, but want to branch out. Almost all my work clothes are black (ugh, I know) but I don't know what to do.
I have pretty sweaters, but black pants, black A-line skirts, black pencil skirts.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
Thank you!

Jen,

You might want to check out my Color Yourself Happy post for strategies on incorporating more color into your wardrobe.

Once you've got the color, you can also find innovative ways to wear it by layering - see my Layer It post.

Hope I helped!

I love these earrings! Where did you find them?

I bought them at World Market last year....but I think I saw them again just a few weeks ago in the store.

kasmira, you've got to sign up for Netflix! The number of available movies from all over the world is astounding. I'd bet they'd have all the Bollywood you could hope for.

Hi
I just started to vist your blog because recently moving here from the bollywood/lollywood area i have very little sense of whats okay for business wear. I live in the north of the states so i have to wear tights all day long. I have to ask where you buy all yours from ? and how do you decide on pattern vs textured vs plane ?

BTW your tops are really bollywood!!

Anon- I buy most of my tights at Target, but Sock Dreams and We Love Colors sell funky legwear online. I've ordered from Sock Dreams and the service was great.

To funny, I wore the same tights today. Have to love Target and their tights. Your style is second to none.
