A couple of weeks ago, when I wrote about my tote from Love From India (read about it here), I had mentioned a dress from the same store and had promised you an OOTD. While it is always a difficult task for me to pose and get pics for an OOTD, I did manage to get a few for this beautiful, Love From India high-low maxi dress which is perfect for the summer. Check it out….
There’s more to the dress than meets the eye. The beauty of the dress lies in the detailing, whether it is the high-low hemline, the sequins at the armholes, the button-down silhouette or the faint glint of sparkle that peeks out from beneath the fabric thanks to the sequined inner. All of these elements combine to make this a perfect summer/resort-wear dress. Infact, this dress was part of Love From India’s Lakme Fashion Week collection last year.
The dress originally had short sleeves but I felt that they made my arms look fat so I told my tailor to chop them off. I feel it looks better sleeveless. I don’t know why but I find it really difficult to pose for outfit pictures. These pics were taken by the lovely Richa of Corals With Blues when we had gone for the Dove beauty bar event.
We tried taking pictures outdoors but it was just too windy. It was because of this wind that my nicely blow-dried, smooth waves became a crazy, frizzy mess that you see in the indoor pictures. Though this picture is blurry, I somehow like how it looks so decided to add it to the post. Here’s the picture of the original dress from the LFW..
How pretty is the black sequined inner? This dress is just the perfect resort-wear for your next beach holiday. You can wear it as a beach-side/pool-side cover up over your bikini in the evening, stack up some bracelets and you’re ready for the beach shack or beach party. With the dress on top, the bling of the sequins gets muted and you can wear the dress even during the day. It is a great outfit for sunday brunches as well. Or even for a date night. If you have a really slim waist, you could also wear an OBI belt over it.
This Love From India high-low maxi dress is priced round ₹5,500. I can’t remember the exact price since the maid threw away the price tag and the LFI website isn’t opening either. I love the fact that it is versatile enough to be styled in different ways. That evening when I wore it, I received compliments from every single person I met. Everyone just loved the dress!
Love From India has loads of other pretty tunics, shirts and dresses and I’m looking forward to their new summer/resort collection. As for this dress, you can be sure it’s going to come with me on my summer vacation 😉
Do let me know what you think of this dress….
