bhangra board shorts

Here's a thought: unreal acrobats under the big top combined with Indian bhangra music and... board shorts? Yup. I went to the Cirque du Soleil show, TOTEM, over the weekend. And naturally, being a huge fan of Indian influenced fashion, I was amazed at how well saree inspired board shorts really completed the scene. Take a look at how these traditional South Asian fabrics have fashionably made their way into our contemporary wear.

Long hair can be feminine and sultry but at the same time have the tendency to look drab and frumpish. The fishtail braid has made a comeback this year leaving long tresses with a careless chic alternative. And, really, who doesn't want to look like a mermaid, right?

splash of bordeaux

splash of bordeaux

Last weekend, some friends and I had dinner at a super chic French-American restaurant, RN74. Appropriately named after Route Nationale 74 (the main highway that runs through the Burgundy wine region of France) and appropriately decorated with dark urban hues combined with a splash of burgundy and bordeaux. I couldn't help but get mesmerized by the rich colors reminiscent of the 30s and 40s, that have also made a fashion statement this season. How would you fashion parade this shade?
