Vintage Grace

Fashions fade, style is eternal. This is the quote that comes to mind when I think about Shalini James's Mantra. Her designs are never in your face, but quite capable of leaving a spring in your step and a song on your heart. Mantra's latest collection, Vintage Grace, is no exception. Quietly glamorous is how I would describe this collection, with its exquisite tone-on-tone lace on delicate shades of Oyster White, Dove Grey, Cafe Latte, and Seaside Sand, and the ever so subtle sparkle. 

I'm wearing the Seaside Sand color which lends itself beautifully to accenting and accessorizing. In this outing, I chose to accessorize it with a pair of statement earrings and a burnt orange clutch. I did not want the pop of color to be too strong that it takes away from the ethereal feel of the anarkali, and burnt orange, while adding that beautiful pop, still stays within the earthy color palette. 

The Vintage Grace anarkali with Mantra's signature impeccable tailoring, exquisite details, and polished aesthetic is definitely one of my favorites and I plan to take it out for another spin soon - perhaps paired with a deep chocolate-y brown clutch. Crème caramel, anyone? The possibilities are endless. Do stop by the Mantra boutique if you are in Cochin, and I'm sure you will find something you love. 

Have a beautiful rest of the week!
