Colombo Flea Market 

 I participated in the Colombo Flea Market today and here are a couple of snaps:

Handbags

 
Shoes

 
Clothes
   
 
Earrings

Sold pretty much 50% of everything I took and donated the rest to the welfare society. I actually feel lighter and better now that I’ve given away stuff I do not use or wear anymore. Was certainly a good experience and will probably participate next time as well.

Tropics of Linen

  
Treated myself to two new items of clothing last morning from Tropics of Linen. I’m not a hugeeeee linen fan but I do like the quality of these and how comfortable they feel once worn. So I picked out a plain beige like long top as well a beautiful cobalt blue shorter top from the store. My bill was just under Rs 6,000 which for linen I must say is not too bad. Would I go back for more purchases in the future? Oh yeah!!!

Still into prints :D

It’s forever summer in Sri Lanka so I’m still in the mood for a ton of prints for the most part of the week whenever I go out. I just love bright colours when I’m in a happy mood (doesn’t everyone?) and I think it really brings out a lot of positive vibes too. What’s featured in this blog post is a top my mum got for me from a trip to India last year. It’s one of my absolute favourites. I believe the fabric is a chiffon and so it’s a bit see-through so I pair this with a black tank underneath. I just love the bold red and the added prints all over it. To be honest, it’s not an easy outfit for me to pair a shawl with because a shawl is a permanent part of my entire outfit. But I try to mix things around and also prints and pair this with similar coloured shawls.

The centre of the top has a different print and that is what is on the sleeves as well. It gives a kind of semi-casual but yet a bit dressy kind of vibe which I really like. I pair this almost always with a grey or dark pair of jeans, nude ballet flats and a printed shawl.

How do you pair your prints? Comment below and let me know 😀

Newbies this week at Mondy

Shopping in Colombo is actually very limited but one of my favourite stores happen to be Mondy.

I find that the available styles and designs really suit women of all ages and sizes, and the variety most suitable. A section of their store also houses kurtas and tunics and I absolutely love heading there first whenever I visit. I have mentioned shopping at Mondy’s on more than a handful of occasions so have a look at the pieces of clothing I bought from them here, here, here, here, and here!

Their most recent collection of clothing was just released and I had to highlight some of my favourite looks:

Clothing haul!

Recently I’ve been doing a lot of shopping for clothes, also because I’m leaving for Hajj in a matter of two weeks, and I need a couple of staple pieces to take with me. Amidst all of that, I have also been buying some extra clothing pieces to wear when I get back because… well, because I just can’t help myself! I used to shop a LOT at Odel but of late I have been going to Cotton Collection a hell of a lot as well my other favourite store Mondy. So I’ll be showing you guys some of the clothing items I got 😀

Pants, pants, pants and pants!
Pants, pants, pants and pants!

I can’t help myself when I come across cotton pants. I got four of the same type in different colours simply because they are too soft and comfortable when worn. They are also a loose fit so I will be taking these with me to Saudi. Here’s a closer look: (oh please don’t mind the crease!)

I got these pants from Cotton Collection for just about Rs. 1,600 each which I think is a really good price for something that’s super soft, comfortable and easy on the eyes.

I love shopping at Mondy simply because they have a good understanding of body types and sizes unlike some of the other stores. Their clothes always fits so well on me and looks just as great which is why I continue going there. Here’s a look at what I got from there:

Teal shirt top

I don’t own anything in this shade so I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it. Plus, I did purchase two palazzo pants some time back and I thought this would really go well with one of them. It’s got cute frill detail on the shoulders, a little pocket highlighted with a black rim and more detail on the back that you can pull back and tie into a bow. It’s unfortunately got like the longest ever sleeves but I plan to fold them over a couple of times when wearing them so that it does not look sloppy on me. This retails for about Rs. 2,000-2,600.

Tunics

The one of the right is another I got from Mondy whilst the left and one in the middle are gifts from my mum who took a trip to India a few weeks ago and bought them at my favourite store – Global Desi. All three have unique prints on them which I love and can be worn for different ocassions. I do not know how much the tops from India retail for but the blue and white from Mondy retails between Rs. 1,800-2,400.

So what’d you think? 🙂
