The Beauty of a Little Joy




Do you know what's better than a new jacket? Well, 2 new jackets and a bracelet....
I recently ordered two shackets and a bracelet and a shrug. The good thing is that I have now learnt (the hard way, of course) that Online shopping will only do me good on prepaid orders. I have ordered these very shackets thrice before and they were returned. Go Figure!!

 

Anyway, This is not about my problems with them, but about why I loved them. My order included 2 shackets, one shrug and a coin bracelet. Each one of them was a fascination of its own kind. The first one was the blue one. I have to admit that I expected a thicker fabric from what it looked like on the website but I liked the print and colours anyway. It was a snake print shacket in a synthetic, silk-like fabric. Owing to its thinness, I expect it to be a treat in the Himachali summers and in the spring season anywhere.I decided to wear it with an 'inch-above-the-knee' skirt in lace, a black tank and a bulleted, broad belt. I wore thigh high stocking (more like socks) and calf-length boots with it.

The other shacket I got is this palm print one which is in a thicker fabric and among my loveliest buys in some time. Here is how I wore it. It can also be worn over a white T and black pants or a black leather skirt. Though there is nothing dull about it already, some casual accessories will add charm to it. I wanted to wear a pair of boots or loafers with it but the pumps did it for me.

As for the Brand, The packing was absolutely charming and the fact that the box reached me intact was making me weak in my knees. I have received far too many consignments to know that getting one that isn't damaged on the outside is a 'once in a blue moon' affair. I am a happy woman this evening!! ^_^

PS, I am now using the boxes they sent the products in as jewellery boxes. I'll show you how its done in the new DIY column that I am about to start!!
