The Pink Elephant


Almost nine out of ten times, as women, we end up dressing for style and not comfort. We will wear a pair of jeans that's one size too small, a bra that suffocates us, a top which requires 3 additional layers inside, a pair of shoes that borderline kills our feet towards the end of the night.

That's why this post is so special and important to me, I want to prove to you all that you can most certainly be stylish whilst also retaining maximum levels of comfort. It doesn't take much to make a statement, and that's why a clever use of fabrics, colours and textures is exactly what the doctor ordered!

This maxi dress combines two fabrics; cotton and the exclusive Tussar silk, which is valued for its rich texture and natural deep colour. India is the second largest producer of Tussar silk and the exclusive producer of Indian Tussar (also known as tropical Tussar), which is largely tended to by tribals.

Much of it is produced in Bhagalpur (where it is called Bhagalpur silk), Bihar and Malda district of West Bengal. Tussar silk is also used for Orissa’s Pattachitras and West Bengal’s Kantha stitches. Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh also produce Tussar silk. In recent years, the Jharkhand state has emerged as the biggest producer of Tussar silk.

Needless to say, because this particular fabric costs a fortune, I had to be economical and use just enough to make my outfit pop! Therefore, combining it with a bright pink cotton to match the silk pink elephants was the perfect match! Take a look at the pictures and let me know your thoughts!
