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.

Today I have a Special Mash Up Edition of the Style Tip of the Week.

LeeZu! released the most amazing Valerie blouses last month, and I just can’t get enough.  The sheer ruffle detail is amazing, and it comes in a large range of colors.  You need to add layers for modesty, in this picture I’m wearing the undershirt, shirt and jacket layers.  The bow belt from Muism’s  New Minimal outfit added a simple chic twist to the look.  Next,  I paired the top with the cutest flared capris from MALT, the woven texture of the pant is incredibly well made.  Khea Karas is an amazing designer and her upcoming vintage inspired releases will have you all in a frenzy (shameless plug for next week’s edition).  If you haven’t picked up the newest shoes from Courtisane, you better run now and get the FATPACK of awesomeness.  These shoes are my new favorites in all of SL, the flower accent on the sandal adds a most unique touch.  And, I adore the ribbon accent in the back.  I kept the accesories simple with pieces from Zaara and Swallowtail.

It’s hard to find leather gloves so when I saw this pair I snatched them up. The denim skirt is versatile and comes with the option of a petticoat. And to complete the outfit a pair of fun tights which compliment these adorable pink shoes that I just couldn’t resist.
