Accessories, Dupattas & Jewellery: 10 Things To Buy Under INR 500 At Shilparamam
The crafts village of Hyderabad, Shilparamam is where we often go for budget shopping. While the collection isn’t terrific all the time, the word on the street was that it got plenty of new stuff. So, obviously, we checked it out and boy, did we loot or did we loot! Right from quirky footwear to floral shorts, we found you a lot of items that you must go check. Go before they’re all sold out!
We opened a Pandora’s box of treasures (oops…earrings). Right from chaandbalis to jhumkas, we found beautiful pairs of mirror-work earrings, hangings with tassels etc. Priced between INR 100 and INR 150, these won’t just complement your ethnic wear but can also jazz up your Indo-Western look.
You’ll never stop playing footsie with your footwear after spotting these colourful ones. Go beyond the regular affair of juttis and grab those printed tie-up flip-flops (perfect for them beach days) and a pair of ballet flats. Priced at INR 150 to INR 250, these are must-haves.
Sling Bags & Potlis
Bag lovers, you cannot refuse yourself one of these sling bags. Done in lovely prints, you can pair these with not just your ethnic wear but western wear too. While you’re at it, take a look at the potlis with mirror work. If you are not interested in something fancy, the jute bags might jump to your rescue. No matter what your choice is, you’ll walk home with a bag for sure. These are priced between INR 150- INR 300.
Move over Shein, we found the cutest cold shoulder tops and floral pin-up tops in our town. Priced at INR 400 each, these are available in several colours and patterns. All you need to have is the patience to go through a massive pile of clothes to choose your style.
Can’t get enough of breezy Summer wear? Then check out some printed palazzos here. While we’re crushing on the one with elephant prints, you can take your pick from the ample variety. Priced at INR 300, this is a deal you shouldn’t miss.
Clap your hands in glee as you spot these hand painted bottles. Whether you’re looking for small-sized ones or bigger ones, these bright-coloured ones shall serve the deeds. Fans of minimalism, find yourself gawking at the monotone bottles. We say, grab one or two (or all) at INR 200 (small) and INR 400 (big).
Got plans to escape to a beach? These shorts are must-haves then. The plain ones share aisles with printed ones (with frills). We got ourselves the best of both worlds by grabbing two and each is priced at INR 200.
Kalamkari jackets or simple printed ones, your wardrobe needs these essentials right away. We got ourselves the Kalamkari one with Buddhas printed on it, and we’re loving it. Add your own twist of fashion by pairing one of these with a crop top and a pair of jeans. These are priced at INR 350 each.
We spotted these printed dupattas with colourful lace borders. Get your chikankari game strong by pairing these dupattas along. Priced at INR 450 each, we are guilty of getting these home.
Time for some fun! If your room needs a splash of colour and a reminder that you’ve got wings to fly, this toy ‘copter is up for sale. This was our final purchase (at INR 350) as we strutted out with a glorious grin.
