So, I spent the NYE in Goa, India’s beach heaven. I embraced 2012 with this lovely cotton dress that I bought from a local shop in Colaba. I love hair accessories, and this Fascinator hair band from Vero Moda is just so chic! I wanted my look, soft, flirty and romantic. The beach setting was perfect to wear something light and happy.
I feel that local stores are a great place to find some really unique fashion buys. One of my top to-dos in every new city is to look for places where the locals shop from. It always works. I end up with something truly pretty, and great value, every time I find myself in a new place. Whether it’s a short cropped, embroidered top from Vienna, or a hand-made belt from Budapest, local markets are a wonderful place to add that twist to your wardrobe.
When in India, shop for color. Stores like Fabindia are a great place to stock up on lovely Indian cotton scarves and tunics.
