This week's colour clash theme was a great excuse for me to break out this orange tunic that I've had for a couple of years - from ASOS, but have never really worn much.
I'm wearing it with my blue spandex Gisela Ramirez leggings because I love this combination of two colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel. Have picked up on the blue again in my new teal lipstick from Illamasqua.
The blue-skinned look I think is a bit reminiscent of Hindu Gods like Krishna, Kali and Shiva so I took the look a bit further with a bit of extra kohl eyeliner (I never normally wear it), multiple bindis and the necklace from Sportsgirl that reminds me of the kind of elaborate jewellery worn at Hindu weddings.
I am attempting to do some Indian dancing inspired poses here too but am clearly not pulling it off....
When I was a kid I was obsessed with Indian culture and used to study all the different Hindu Gods, re-read Lonely Planet India constantly and collect Indian jewellery, bangles and sari fabrics, desperate to travel there.
Have still never been but am keen to go within the next year. It's such a huge country I think you'd need a good six months at least to see the place properly but was thinking of dipping my toe in with a couple of weeks just exploring Bombay and surrounds.
Another thing I was rather fixated with as a kid was all things inflatable, so to complete the look (in a clashing shade of yellow of course) is this blow-up backpack. I've got a bunch of these in a range of different colours and hope to sell them in soon in my online shop - if and when I ever get around to launching it! It's hard to find the time when you're working full time.
Anyway, yay for all things inflatable! Especially inflatable furniture - remember that? ..so terrible. Love it.
