Colour experts will have their say, but if you are looking to buy one thing this season, I would highly recommend something in GOLD. For starters the colour isn't going out of style anytime soon, certainly not in India. My gold Chanel sling and YSL sandals have been my "survival kit" this festive season; I am wearing them in the picture above with a Tarun Tahiliani ensemble.
Most of my social engagmenets are out of town, so its a great plus when I can match them with most of my outfits. We all know that once you pack an anarkali, there isn't much room left for anything else. :-)
Also, you can never have enough of golden bags, for every clutch there is the oversized; for every calf leather there is the exotic skin... you get the drift. In fact I already have the next one that I want picked out, a gold bag in mirrored metallic leather.
