- Design: Embroidered
This lovely dress arrived today, all the way from India. I like its simplicity, and the embroidery is a nice touch. The fabric is lightweight and breathable, and great for a hot summer day. I ordered a size S and found it to be quite a loose fit (I normally wear size S or 4), but I think it would look nice too, with a belt. Looking forward to wearing it!

It’s easy to see why the intricate designs and rich colors of Indian textiles have been dazzling the world for over 5,000 years. This lively patchwork of hand-cut silk and rayon in teal hues conjures the brilliant saris that are a staple of Indian women’s fashion and the basis for so many creatively upcycled works of art. Lightweight and unlined.
Lily of the Incas Button-Front Red Cotton Blouse, "Lily of the Incas in Red"

Button-and-loop closures and a V-neck collar make this blouse perfect for work or weekends.
