What happens when you take a fashion blogger with a brand new camera to one of Mumbai's most famous shopping streets? Read on to know -
Hello to all the fashion lovers out there! I was feeling really bored and useless the other day, and decided that my new camera needed some exercise, and my soul, some shiny stuff! And that's when you head straight to Colaba Causeway!
It is a lane (a causeway actually) running under old buildings, a block away from the Arabian Sea! Okay, weird geographical description, check out the map! Tourists from all over the world are a common sight here, wearing their newly purchased Bohemian Best!
The atmosphere is lively with the vendors trying to sell their wares to the tourists (at sky high prices) in broken English, and the flute sellers and drum sellers playing their music, and so many colourful and shiny distractions!
Here are some wares on display:
|Jangly Bracelets and Chunky Bangles...by the truckloads!|
|'Designer' Purses and Handbags!|
|Colourful Chappals (Flats)...Which is your pick?|
|Now that's a LOT of earrings! It made my head reel just to pick one to buy!!!|
|It's all about finding a good bargain!|
The interior of my favourite seconds store! I swear I get dreams about this shop...especially if I want an outfit badly but I cannot buy it right away! It has a lovely laid back atmosphere and has 70's Pop playing full volume in the background! So upbeat! This time they played Dancing Queen and I swear I twirled in the mirror right in the middle of the shop!
I loved a military print cardigan, which would look so chic, belted at the waist! But I ran out of money buying other stuff (Sigh!) Still dreaming about it...
Hope you enjoyed the post! Trust me; I put as much heart into taking nice pictures, as I did into the shopping! (Well, almost!)
Your comments on the photographs will be most welcome!
