Kurta: Thrifted (Fabindia) — Skirt: Blacklist Vintage (Lilly Sports) — Sandals: Gift (Clarks) — Bangle: Thrifted — Earrings: Target


I forgot (read: was too lazy) to put away my jewelry supplies yesterday, so my photo area is a leetle beet messy.


I took a long break from making lace jewelry, but I’m back, sort of! I need to renew some listings and get back in the game, but first I’m doing up a few items that I’ve owed friends for, um, an embarrassing length of time.


My shop’s been open for eleven months and I’ve made roughly five and a half sales, but hey! I like being creative and learning how to get better at working out designs people will like.


I just wish I had more hours in the day so I could go to work, make jewelry, and also get even one other thing done. Maybe I just have too many hobbies.

Kurti: Thrifted (Fabindia) — Skirt: Thrifted (Maurices) — Flats: American Rag — Ring: Target — Earrings: Solano Stroll


The second of my kurti purchases! From a distance it just looks like it’s solid teal or jade, but up close…


Polka dots! Proper copper polka dots, no less.


One of the sleeves actually had a big tear in it at the time of purchase; my plan was to just remove the sleeves, and it worked pretty well. The way the seam is constructed, I was able to trim the sleeve neatly down to the very edge of the stitching and preserve the hem. No sewing for me! In the long run, we’ll see if it holds or if I trimmed too close–I may have to make the proverbial nine stitches in the future for the one I saved right now.

Kurti: Thrifted (Fabindia) — Pants: Thrifted (Gloria Vanderbilt) — Shoes: Gift (Clarks) — Bangles: Thrifted — Earrings: The Wood Merchant


If you’ve talked to a Californian (or been a Californian) in the last 48 hours, you know it’s hot here.


It hit 102F here yesterday, so something light was a necessity. Enter the kurti.


I came across a few Fabindia garments during my last thrifting excursion–the prints are gorgeous and the fabric dries quickly, and they fit wonderfully, so here we are. To my understanding, this and the other piece I got are kurtis or short kurtas, but please correct me if I’m wrong!


I looked up Fabindia before buying the shirts, just in case the company’s history turned out to be not-so-great. I feel a little weird about the founder, but altogether I think I’m okay with things, especially since I bought the items secondhand.


Sometimes I overthink things, but I just want to be a good person. Really.
