Dupatta Creations Update + New Dresses
I promised y’all I had a few more dupatta experiments coming up, and I managed to get one of them done!
I’m so happy with how it turned out, and I feel like it really displays the entire point I’m trying to make with these shrugs as well!
I knew this dupatta would not be used in its original form the second I bought it - with the built-in woven stripes and light feel and fall of the fabric, it would be perfect in another accessory form.
Well, I’m a big fan of this shrug I created, and it seriously goes with everything - tops, dresses, everything! So, the decision was pretty obvious.
This is an example of one of our jersey knit shrugs (very popular at the exhibition, so I had to try it out in other fabrics!)

All the aspects of this post and these photos just kind-of fell into place - each step automatically flowed into the next, and it’s like these pieces were all made for each other (even though they were all created at different times!). I love, love, love when this happens.
I was originally going to do 2 separate posts - one for the dupatta update and one for these 2 dresses, but like I said, it’s as if they were meant to be showcased together.
This dress is a soft cotton with subtle gold stripes throughout; I chose to play around with the direction of the stripes and kept it a playful and somewhat loose-fitted silhouette. Keep it super casual with sneaks like I’ve done or throw on some wedges and you instantly take this look up a notch.

This dress is another play on stripes - I wanted some diagonal joints to give it a pop but still kept the shape pretty simple and straightforward. Love the little slit (only on one side!) for that touch of asymmetry and imagination :) Decided to use wedges here, but tone it down with flats, and you’re good to go.

And, as you can see, it was absolutely necessary that both had pockets! These make dresses so functional, and I just love that my hand has a little home when I’m walking around or ‘ahem’ taking awkward pictures.
Keep the shrug in your purse (it’s easily foldable and lightweight), and as soon as you throw it on, everyone will be asking you questions about it! You’ll be uber-chic and a little warmer!
Isn't it ironic how the stripes on the dress match perfectly with the shrug?! I tell ya, meant to be :)
It just goes to show that so many of my pieces can be worn and accessorized in multiple ways, and this, my friends, is what I want you all to see! I feel like a broken record sometimes, but I personally love it when I buy a piece that can be used in a variety of ways, so I want my clients to feel that, too!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Note - both of the featured dresses are also available - let us know if you'd like more details!
