Travel Style - Vintage Shrug & Crystal Jewelry


As soon as I reached UK, one of the very first places I visited was the Greenwich Prime Meridian and here's what I wore when I went there. Anyways, since I went only to the Observatory and nowhere else, I visited Greenwich again, this time for Cutty Sark and Maritime Museum and here comes what I wore for the trip.
Remember this shrug? I've worn it here and here. Its an vintage piece, more than 20 years old! I wore it as a waistcoat with a matching skirt when I was a toddler, then, as I grew out of it, it went to my cousin, and as she grew out of it, I realized I could wear it as a shrug by then! So it came back to me!!! Its handmade applique work done at Pipli town in Orissa, India, and is called Pipli work. Its filled with little motifs that depict their day to day life and things they see and know!!!

Tee: Inkfruit
Trousers: Romwe
Shrug: Handmade by artisans of Orissa 
Necklace & Bracelet: c/o Nadia Minkoff
Floral print sneakers: Newchic
This time I matched it with a simple tee and trousers. However I went with heavy eye makeup and subtle crystal jewelry in same sap green as my shrug! What say? Of the 3 looks with this shrug, which do you like the most??? Check out more about Cutty Sark and Maritime Museum on My Travelogue.
Btw, there was on the 1st floor of the Maritime Museum was this huuuuuge world map. Ofcouse I had to take a pic on Mera Bharat Mahaan, my dearest India!!!

  2. I never knew that that piece of clothing would be called a shrug. Learned something new today. You really know how to mix and match diverse pieces of clothing.

  3. The handmade shrug is quite a vintage piece. You must really have taken good care of the material well for it to be lasting this long.

  4. Wow that is a very long time! I don't think I have any pieces that are that old, or at least nothing from my younger years. I know my mom had some old dresses from the 50's and those would surely be vintage but they're just not my style. :)

  5. I like how you paired the shrug with the crystal jewelry in same sap green, it matches really well and brings to the colour of the clothing. Simple yet fashionable!

  6. I really love casual outfits especially when you're going to places such as museums to tour. It's really comfy and it's not so hard to move in. Love that vest, it's a statement piece for sure!

  7. In Singapore, most fashion is usually pretty basic colours... people hardly mix and match too many colours on their outfits... So this is really something different
