Having a fetish for all sort of strange jewellery makes me often want to mix and match designs and junk jewellery of all kinds is not a good thing when you are out shopping. So when Jaipuriya came up with a few interesting designs, I was excited to try them out. Garima, the lady behind the brand, is quite aware of my personal style, and so, sent a few over for me to try out.
Now, pairing jewellery with clothes isn’t really my forte, so I decided to take some time before I could understand what worked and what didn’t. Also, I wanted to wear the jewellery sent to me for a while before putting up a review – because seriously speaking, wearing a neck piece once doesn’t do a review any justice. However, I am glad to say that my experimentation paid off, and I was quite happy with the results. I paired this Jaipuriya neck piece with a simple maroon dress from Westside, and it worked quite well, because I got a lot of compliments afterwards.
I have always had a fetish for chandelier earrings, and the silver ones are not very light, but this does look really good with the black and pink long kurti (Also from Jaipuriya). I paired it with shocking pink leggings and black court shoes, and put on bright pink lipstick because I have a fetish for bright lipsticks in summer.
The other pair of earrings I got were golden with green and red on it, and I decided to wear it with a dress I got from Howrah Bridge, a designer brand which my friend Anupriya owns. They have a huge array of really comfortable dresses, and I loved wearing them for a shoot.
Notice the texture – the slightly uneven effect is a real winner, and this pair is really lightweight. I made my friend wear them as well, and she commented about the same.
The one pair I was slightly uncertain about were an unusual one – with a lion’s head on them. I ended up wearing them with my red and blue dress a lot – this one wasn’t very lightweight, but it was not uncomfortable either.
The jewellery sent to me can be bought from Jaipuriya’s website, and you can check out their kurtis and kurtas (I have worn the black kurta from their range of cotton kurtas. I am a size 14-16 (depending on US/UK) and I fit into size ‘L’ very comfortably. You can also visit Jaipuriya’s facebook page to stay updated about their new launches.
