BGIS in Mumbai! Part Deux

So here are my Mumbai purchases (minus a blouse that’s always in the wash when I’m ready to take pics! Sorry!)

First up clothes. Finally – linen! No more polyester!

100% linen blouse from The Oak Tree
Enjoying posing way too much
Glass necklace - The Oak Tree
Necklace from Coloba Causeway



Sans makeup - v brave
I got 2 of these silk scarves from Shawlsons at The Oberoi
Shawlsons' scarves come in these lovely silk bags. I also got two 100% cashmere shawls for a steal but they're gifts so I dont want to ruin the surprise.

I got a really pretty tea strainer (cos I take my tea seriously) and some lavender satchets to keep clothes fresh from Good Earth.


Now for some randoms…

Lovely cane and embroidered hotel welcome bag
Cartouche Jewel Tea glasses. A present from the bride who knows me all too well.
A batua gift bag (pronounced 'buh-too-ah')

Finally, a couple of the outfits I rocked in Mumbai.

Outfit from Melange
Warehouse dress, Colobar Causeway necklace, House of Fraser clutch and Russell & Bromley heels - which you can't see!

So those were my purchases. Mostly practical stuff because that’s what I needed. The Oak Tree was a little pricey but Cottonworld was comparable to London’s high street and the luxurious items were a fantastic deal and incredible quality.

Hope you enjoyed the post and here are the addresses for the stores below if you ever find yourself in Mumbai. They’re definitely worth a visit.


Good Earth, 2 Reay House, Colaba, Near The Taj Hotel, Mumbai
The Oak Tree, 18 Cusrow Baug, Colaba, Mumbai
