Hi there people! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I had a pretty relaxed one.........just lazed around at home & didn't do much. And of course, that means that I did not dress up to go out & hence have no outfit pix to share with you all...

But not to worry...you guys just have to make do with snaps clicked way back in the middle of the week gone by.....!

But before going on to the pictures, I'd really like to thank every one of you for liking my photographs (my effort at better photography can be seen in my last post here) & encouraging me to share more from my collection! Your comments & feedbacks were much appreciated!! Hope I can keep up to your expectations & share more pictures that you all will like equally or maybe even better!!! :)
Keep checking this space for more such photography posts......

But till then, let's focus on fashion...


First of all, please excuse my drab look.......but it's mid-week, it's an office day and I just took a 10-minute break from an ever-growing & never-diminishing workload to take these pics! Hence, no enthusiasm left in my weekend-craving soul for touching up my make-up... :(



See what I mean? These clients & vendors won't even leave me in peace for 10 minutes!!! Sigh!
Clotheswise, I decided to pair my very comfy & very favourite zouaves with a kurta for work (I generaly wear them with a tee)......red & green, being complimentary colors, make for a bright & zingy combo (in fact, now you know what the title of the post refers to)..... :)

Cotton pintuck kurta: Pantaloons, Kolkata
Cotton zouaves/dhoti pants: Colaba Causeway, Mumbai



I kept a touch of ethnicity in my accessories too......also the touch of gold in the accessories balances the gold zari border in the kurta. Am currently in love with this fish pendant that I picked up from a handicrafts exhibition recently (Holly!! I got one too!!!) And this is one of my favourite rings - bright & big! 

Dokra* neckpiece: Karigar Haat, Kolkata
Kashmiri painted wooden bangle: Forum, Bangalore
Gold metal bangle: Colaba Causeway, Mumbai
Red wooden bangle: Metro Plaza, Kolkata
Coral & silver ring: Shoppers Stop. Kolkata



These nice, ethnic chappals completed my outfit. I wanted to pick these colorful sandals in all colors possible......but restricted myself at the last moment! At times, I wish I had more colors to wear with different outfits!!! 

Chappals: Linking Road, Bandra, Mumbai

*Dokra - An art of metal casting using brass. This technique is used widely in Eastern India to make figurines, jewellery, wall hangings & various other knick-knacks.

Hope I can put up current outfit snaps in my next post. 

Have a rocking week ahead guys!!!

Lots of love,
Polka Princess
