Kameez

 Kameez dress, belt - thrifted
Sandals - Liz Claiborne, thrifted
Shalwar Kameez is worn by men and woman in the South and Central areas of Asia. The top part is called a kameez and has split sides to accommodate movement (and I'm guessing putting on because the top part is nicely fitted). I spotted this insanely bright green 'top' sticking out of a random rack a few weeks back. It was split all the way up to my hips, but a quick buzz through the sewing machine left it wearable as a dress (with sleeves!).

The fabric is a light and airy cotton which makes it awesome for these super hot days. I wish I had it in 4 more colors, and I could give up on thinking about getting dressed for the whole summer. Also I need to trim my bangs some more.

One more reminder, I had items up for swap in my little swap stop. I finished putting everything up.

  4. I love it! Anything that is comfy but looks polished like this is a winner in my book.

    Back to our hair...funny thing is that I think yours is growing faster than mine! Although I guess mine may have been shorter to begin with...

  6. I've always secretly wanted one of these but I've held back. Maybe someday the thrifting faeries will look kindly upon me and give me one in orange. :)

  12. That's fantastic! Looks perfect for summer. Side ventilations sound great :D It's been a while since I've stopped by. Have you done your fruit challenge? I suppose I could search. I like your new header. Well, it's new to me.
