LP's Style Book: First OOTD, Planning For A Visit To Chennai? Do Visit DakshinaChitra :)

Hello Lovelies!

I’m here with my first OOTD and obviously im so nervous!

This is actually not just a OOTD but also a round-up of one of the beautiful places in Chennai. This place is called Dakshinachithra, a place that portraits South Indian tradition and culture (it covers the tradition and culture of 4 South Indian states – Tamil nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh).

A little about the place:

DakshinaChitra is a center for the living traditions of art, folk performing arts, craft and architecture of India with an emphasis on the traditions of South India. A project of the Madras Craft Foundation (MCF), a non-profit organisation. DakshinaChitra opened to the public in December 1996. The center occupies ten undulating acres overlooking the Bay of Bengal, at Muttukadu, twenty five kilometers south of Chennai, on the East Coast Road to Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu, India.

The place was really a treat for eyes. It was so calm and green. Really a lovely place to visit this summer :D

And now coming to the outfit, since it was a traditional place I went with a traditional and simple Anarkali chudidhar in Green and Maroon combination. I’m a big jewellery freak, so I teamed it up with a dark brown Hasli pendant and a dangler in same metal studded with green and dark pink stones. Also I wore a metal ring studded with a big red stone to compliment with my neck piece and earring :D

Just made a collage to avoid making the post picture heavy (but still it is)

The antique lamp

The most beautiful wooden window of Kerala type house 

This was my most favorite spot in the place :). Please excuse the bad lighting :(

Another lovely spot there – The Muttram of Tamil nadu house

The wooden horse

A random click – We bought this small drum kinda thing which produces sound when rotated – the one im holding in hand). There are also many craft shops here which sells jewellery made of silk thread, metal jewellery, cotton & silk sarees, kundan jewellery, wooden craft pieces etc.

And finally here comes the lazy meow - :D
This cat was feeling so lazy that, even when I went near and touched it, it opened its eyes for a couple of seconds, gazed at me and went back to sleep ignoring me!!
