My mom, who is artistic as ever, decided to cut three of my jeans, and convert them into skirts. The result as expected, was amazing, and so, a blog idea came about.
The two skirts are very different from each other. While one is more of a western-wear, the other can be either, but I like to call it a ghagra.
This one, was made with the material of about three different pairs of old jeans. One for the main base, one as a patch in the middle, and one piece to make it longer, because it seemed too short for me to wear to college if I ever wanted to. Then, to make it more interesting, she ironed on patches, which are so beautiful, they seem like embroidery. I paired it up with this shirt which was gifted by my uncle, knowing how much I love the unusual, and well, the shoes and choker were the most spontaneous decision right before the shoot.

The Indian Ghagra
This one is super easy to make, you just need to cut off the top part of your jeans, and attach it to a piece of cloth of your choice. Because I thought of the skirt as a ghagra and would love to do a fusion with it one day, I wore with it a top which is more inclined towards the Indian side, and to do something different than the usual necklaces, I wrapped around this infinity scarf, and then ofcourse, the bangles, earrings, and jutties had to make an appearance. Also, I added a little bit of green eyeshadow, which I wish was a little more pigmented, for added effect and drama.

That’s it for today. I hope you’ll liked this one, and if you did like the skirts, let me know in the comments.
Until next time…..STAY SASSY!
