That pretty much sums most of us up.  We are all a fusion of cultures and lifestyle and behaviour and choices... we are not so much a melting pot because we do not want to be clones... we are, as individuals, all a patchwork masterpiece...

As are these fabulous pants!!   These Pondicherry Pants were a gift from one of my favourite bloggers, the very Sassy Smrithi from Vintage Obsession!  She sent them to me [and another one of my favourite bloggers, Miss Tanvi] ages ago but it was winter when I received them and it was too cold to wear them!
... but now... the heat is on... and I LOVE them... so much so that I [eek] wore them 2 days in a  row!!  I know I know.  Okay?  I know.  That's disgusting. Get over it. 

I wore them yesterday after Flamenco and everyone went crazy over them!   [ahhh... another fusion...hence the pose... read this to find out what I mean by that]
This is how I wore them today with my straw fuschia fedora and my mini ghungru.  A total fusion!  Some looked at me in confusion but that may have been because of the profusion of colour.  And I'm done now.

Have a wonderful weekend lovelies!!

Oh! Yes! I remember these ... These pants are meant to be danced in! I wanted to do Bharat natyam in them, though I do not know how! You do them COMPLETE justice! :)

OH WOW!!! I was green with envy when Tanvi had hers on, I think I left mine behind in India. Hope you don't mind me jumping on the bandwagon and getting another pair, if I look an eighth as gorgeous as you I'd be thrilled.
You wear colour like no other woamn on the planet, I swear! If only the beige-clad Brits could see you.
Have a wonderful weeekend, you gorgeous thing. xxx

Hi Dusk,
Wondering if the pants are super duper cool or the way you are carrying them...
