I love the floaty romantic style and phenomenal fabrics of traditional Indian fashion and as a lassie was always thrilled when my friend’s mom allowed us to play dress-up with her gorgeous collection of saris, so you can imagine my delight when I discovered this incredible Handmade-in-India tunic dress at my local thrift shop…on €1 day:
I squealed in excitement & received such an evil glare of death from the elderly woman beside me at the rack that I’m positive I would no longer be on this earth had my munchkin not swooped in to save me with her adorable smiles & giggles that seem to act as kryptonite to bitter old Germans, rendering their penetrating sour stares powerless.
The embroidery & beadwork are divine and each flower contains a tiny mirror at its center
