We Found Amazing Kurtis, Short Tops And Fabric At This Hidden Store
Rekha’s Boutique on CP Ramasamy Road is filled with kurtis, short tops, and fabric starting INR 850.
What Makes It Awesome
Ever passed through Kauvery Hospital and noticed the big complex next to the flyover? Say hello to Mookambika Complex, which hosts some hidden boutiques, Madras Art Store, a salon, and accessory stores. We found Rekha’s Boutique, a treasure trove for traditional women’s wear, especially kurtis, salwars, short tops, and fabric.
If you like traditional yet chic clothes, you will love this store. They have bright-coloured yellows and reds with block prints that are perfect for everyday wear. V-necks, sleeveless, double chest or a Chinese collar, you will find kurtas in variations here. The patchwork kurtas will keep the Mylapore maami in you happy. The kurtas are priced from INR 850 and have basic embroidery, sequins and zardosi patterns on them. Don’t like all that bling? Check out the super comfy kurtis with simple kola maavu (rangoli) patterns. We loved the sleeveless tangerine kurti with a linear design on the top half. The short tops start from INR 600.
You can also find fabrics here, including cotton, semi-cotton, georgette, and polyester that could almost pass off as a saree. Majestic peacocks, dancing gopikas, palm leaf with designs, the traditional manga design (mango) and intricate ivy, we found all kinds of pretty patterns here. Our fave material was the off-white and hot pink kurta with a florentine border.
What Could Be Better
They don't have a big collection of short tops, so go here for the kurtis.
