Hi friends, welcome to pareeland. Hope everyone is doing great post holidays and new year celebrations. Its time to get back to your routine(yukkkk…huhhhhh….uggggh). You like it or you hate it but you still cant live without it. So lets not grumble and shoot. Instead, lets make now more enjoyable and exciting. My trick is drowning in fashion. Fashion takes aways all my pressures and disappointments to a great extent. It surprises me in my gloomy days and inspires me to keep looking for better days to come. I express my dreams, my skills and my inspirations through fashion. And this blog gives me an opportunity to realise all of them here. This platform with like minded people keeps me hooked on to my creativity. So thanks to Blogger and all the Bloggers for keeping me going and encouraging me to unfold a new look right from my wardrobe. Here comes one of my favourite looks which is mesmerising with a storybook appeal yet wearable and affordable. Its inspired from Indian nomads. Ever since I was a child, Banjarans ( banjara women) took me by surprise with their colourful attires. Their skirts are made up of lengthiest yards of cotton in the brightest and the most beautiful colours. Their cholis (blouses) are the most alluring tops I have ever seen. Their jewellery is enormous and distinctive. Their hair, thick and heavily adorned. I can probably talk about their fashion and styling sense ceaselessly for hours together. I simply gush over their looks and the way they carry so much with such an ease. I have tried to tone down any heaviness in my version of them. Just because I live in a world where wearing so much will make me immobile. Hats off to Banjarans and their unconventional style of fashion. This is my first outfit idea and will come back with more.

  2. Very beautiful fabrics! The patterns and colours just pop! And you certainly have a very fine eye for putting lovely outfits together.

    Everytime I come into contact with some facet of Indian culture (and the culture of other nearby regions), my admiration and appreciation only grows. For example, I've had the opportunity to attend several Bharata Natyam recitals and write about them for my community newspaper. It's been an excellent and astonishing path to learning more about India's arts and musics. Through your post on Banjaran fashion, I'm so happy to find more to explore...and it's just the proverbial tip of the iceberg, I know.

    I'm looking forward to your future posts. You have a wonderful blog!
