The Phanek Pareo!

Hey!

I am so excited to share this outfit with you!Like you know, I love to dress up and try out new ways to wear clothes. I was wearing this red phanek(read about the phanek here) at home when I started experimenting ways I could tie it instead of simple wrapping it around my waist. Being beach season, I thought, why not tie it as a sarong? So I pulled out two ends of the phanek(wrap skirt) tied the two ends together mid way and played around it a bit, tying it like a Hawaiian pareo! I love draped dresses and this kinda created a new silhouette too with the temple borders! I especially love the little flap it creates. Being silk and starched, it worked keeping the silhouette in shape! Sigh!! If only I could stitch!

Feedback welcome gals!!

A little note about the ring now! It is actually a vintage scrapbook sticker (from Michaels!) which I stuck to a plain ring to create this beauty!How did I do :) ?
