Colours for the week...

Flipping through the glossy pages of the first issue of the Indian edition of Vogue, I came across some images that I liked.

This colourful, rustic look by Sabyasachi Mukerjee for aza bride.

Very seductive, sensual pictures by Prabuddha Dasgupta for a feature on Traditional Indian Jewellery. Here are some of them...


Have a great colourful week ahead...

UuuuuUuuuuu...tempting..tempting!

We have stores here selling Indian jewelry such as those....I just roll everything in my hands and try and try and try it on...Unfortunately they cost really really a lot...something I'd have to save up for...sigh...

Gosh, such beautiful pictures! Just chanced upon your gem of a blog by a happy accident and now I'm in love! You have such a wonderful eye for beauty and sense of...sensuality...lol! Such mouthwatering colours, gorgeous design and details, and just total loveliness in both the obvious and also the most unexpected things. Please keep those yummy images rolling in (I love the ones of ethnic Indian fashions, jewellery, decor and also flowers/nature the most...but all are equally great!)...and also many thanks for sharing these pics and your interesting and delightful lil thoughts with us.


PS: Have you heard of a book called 'A Naural History of the Senses' by Diane Ackerman? I think you'd like it :)

again - you delight the senses! I have a question, I know about brides having intricate henna designs on their hands, but could you explain the significance of the finger tips dipped in color?

The red colour that is appied in the hands of brides from some parts of India especially West Bengal is called 'Alta' has a similar significance and red is an auspicious colour for the brides:-)

That's great information. Now a days kundan bridal jewelry is in trend. Few days back I purchased one complete bridal set from the site www.kaneesha.com. I was astonished to see the fine quality of the set. I will say it's worth visiting site if you are looking for an exclusive bridal jewelry.
