Head Over Heels in the Moment













Dress: Origins
Bangles: Vintage heirloom
Leggings: New Look

As you’ve probably read from my previous posts, I’ve been obsessing with the Mughal era, and how it has affected Eastern cultures and fashions. A lot of the clothes I am currently wearing have been derived from the Mughal times. I decided to take a casual take on what is always seen as a heavily decorated and sequinned empire.

Ever since a glamorous new year’s celebration, I’ve decided to tone things down somewhat. I adore this nude pink dress paired with some of my mother’s vintage Mughal jewellery. You can spot the jewellery here. It’s very laid-back and relaxed for me, the nude pastel colours required barely any effort which seemed idyllic for me at the time. The dress originally came with traditional (but odd) looking trousers, so I decided to switch them with a pair of basic black leggings, as the dress was very long. Despite this outfit being comfortable, it’s out of my comfort zone because I don’t tend to wear pastel colours in masses.

Love from,

Miss Iffa

  5. What an interesting look! I really like it. Very different and inspiring. The dress looks vintage! It's so pretty. I love checking blogs that experiment with different fashions. A lot of blogs don't do too much of that, so it's refreshing to see!

    The bracelets are gorgeous, too.

    Love & Cake,
