Brands are undoubtedly quite appealing, with each possessing it's own individuality and personality which transcends onto their clothes. They promise quality, amazing sartorial options and the titillation of having acquired something of value. But everything aside, very few things beat the thrill of acquiring pretty little pieces from street shops or stalls, especially when you least expect to come across anything exciting. I'd gone for a mini trip to Pune with my best friend this summer, when we stumbled upon this little street stall near Osho ashram in Koregaon Park. They had some really interesting pieces, and it was from there that I picked up this shirt. I absolutely adore the colors and the print, and the fact that I bought it for the rate of peanuts is just the cherry on the cake!
