Embroidered skirt from India

Story of the block

Brandi wearing the embroidered skirt from India.

I found this skirt one day shopping in the Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, NC. There was a small Indian boutique that had just opened a couple of weeks prior and I was immediately drawn to the unique fabrics and colors displayed in the windows. The sparkly beads and intrinsic design sold me on this skirt, and I knew I had to have it.

A few months later, I went back to Raleigh hoping to find a new treasure in the boutique, but found it had closed. I do not know the name of the store, so I have no way of finding out if it moved location out of the mall or if it simply closed its doors for good.
