Aradhana Voight, owner of Mashooka Designs, continues to expand her offerings at a rapid pace. As anyone who frequents her store knows, Mashooka Designs carries not only the authentic Indian styles it is famous for, but also casual and formal lines as well. This past week, Aradhana added a range of new items, each available in a selection of wonderful colors. Jewelry is an important aspect of Indian dress and Aradhana hasn’t ignored this fact. She has also added to her ever-growing selection of Indian styled jewelry with a new release this week.
This casual look, above, combines the Gilet dress in metallic blue with the Tristin blouse in darkrose. This dress, shown with the flexi A-line skirt option, can also be worn with a non-flex pencil skirt of the same length. The Tristin blouse features semitransparent wrist cuffs and multiple layers. Both the dress and blouse are wonderfully textured for realism. The Gilet dress is also available in black, bordeaux, lilac and moss while the Tristin blouse also comes in beige, blue, light blue, ocean and red. For a more daring look the dress can be worn alone with the wide shoulder straps offering just enough coverage. Also worn for this photo is C’est si bon hair with hat from Vanity Hair and a Donnarama Gloss peach skin with make up 4 BK from Baiastice.
Next is a new formal, the Hope gown seen here in hardrose. This is a beautiful and sexy gown with what is becoming a trademark hip-high side slit. The asymmetric hem and waistline create an interesting silhouette. The fabric is embellished with rich metallic embroidery and the look is completed with the matching shoulder wrap. Seen here with the semi-opaque bodice, a more sheer bodice option is included. Other colors available are black, blue, champagne, lime, metalic red, mint, mocha and white. The hair in this photo is Delaneyfrom Diversity Hair and the jewelry is the Claris Three-Strand Pearl and Diamond Choker with Pearl Earrings in Gold from Muse Fine Jewelry. The skin is the Baiastice Donnarama Gloss peach skin with make up 4 BK and the shoes are Stiletto Moody Bare Viviens in Gold Patent.
The new Indian style is the Mohini saree, seen her in green. This is a versatile garment with three different tops. The short one pictured leaves a bare midriff. Also included are a long version for full coverage of the torso and a halter style. All the tops come in a shirt and undershirt layer. There are also a couple of pashminas included. Besides, the green, this saree also comes in shades of blue, lilac and lime.
The jewelry worn is the new Mashooka Arpita Jewelry in gold with ruby and amber set which includes the necklace, earrings, headpiece, nose ring and two styles of bracelets. The hair worn for this look is Mau’s & Mej’s Dolgasurai and the skin is Baiastice‘s Donnarama Gloss peach make up 5 BK.
