Vintage Market Days Connecticut

While we are experiencing sweltering summer in New England, at the same time we are appreciating what summer has to offer. Many fairs and festivals have flocked by. This weekend we visited an indoor/outdoor upscale vintage-inspired market at Harwinton Fairgrounds in Litchfield county Connecticut called Vintage Market Days . As a vintage hoarder myself but visiting the vintage market is fairly new for me. There are vendors from the home state of Connecticut to Massachusetts, Newyork, Pennsylvania to North Carolina who brought a wide array of architectural Salvage, food, antique furniture, Crocks, toys, vintage clothing (different decades, from Victorian and Art Deco), linen accessories to name a few all under one roof and everything vintage inspired. It was a three-day event from August 19-21, 2022. The market is suffused with unique one-of-a-kind antique and vintage-inspired goodies, live music, and local food vendors.

Watch Hill, Rhode island - unforgettable summer retreat

The Last few days of summer were  hellishly hot in CT and when we escaped to Watch Hill, RI it was a serene and sublime retreat.   We left Watch hill but our hearts still stayed.  Apart from being infamous for Tylor Swift's holiday home it also has the oldest Flying Horse Carousel continuously operating in the united states. And the cherry on top is the Ocean House Hotel which adorns Watch Hill with its iconic existence. Watch Hill is at the southernmost point of Rhode Island and is a hidden gem. Consisting of 629 acres with NewEnglands one of the most affluent neighborhoods is Rhode Island's one most well-kept secret. It's filled with boutiques, art galleries, cafes, and more with quintessential New England Charm. Not utterly offbeat but there is some kind of uniqueness for sure. If you want to just unwind, rejuvenate yourself, or want to escape from the monotony of life, or just enjoy the beach sand, and sun this idyllic summer town is a perfect place.  What to do   Na

Happy National Handloom Day and A Raw mango Saree

Today is the national handloom day in India. Handloom is such a beautiful art effort and skill to take forward tradition as well as socio-economic growth that one could celebrate every day. Wearing a handloom saree is my pride and pleasure. This saree, which I got last year from India's prominent handloom designer Sanjay, who owns the brand called Raw mango . A simple soft feather-like feel, off-white saree with a thick yellow border, the rest of the saree is plain. I teamed the saree with an aqua blue silk blouse. I created this look for mileage of tradition yet contemporary. My hair is in a bun wrapped up with flowers, dark kohl-filled eyes, reddish pink lips, and for jewelry traditional antique gold necklace, gold earrings and gold bangles. I rounded up the look with a pink potli bag for a good pop of color and a festive feel. I skipped the bindi this time as it is already heavy on the accessories. Hope you like this  look
