Scarves Inspired by Slumdog Millionaire

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last few months, you are undoubtedly aware that "Slumdog Millionaire" stole the show at the Golden Globes, the Academy Awards, and every other film awards ceremony this year, and in the process, it stole our hearts as well. The Indian underdog epic centers on the Dickensian story of a poor young man's unexpected appearance on India’s ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire.’ If you're like me, you were inspired by the exotic beaded tops (kurtas) and patterned scarves worn by the leading lady Latika, and by the film’s Indian setting.

Give your wardrobe a Bollywood twist! Any of the Indian scarves from Silk Road Spirit will add that certain Indian spice style to your outfit -- one of my favorites is the beautiful and versatile Saffron & Curry Scarf woven in the rich spice colors of India. Or if you love texture, another special piece to bring that Indian flavor to your wardrobe is a silk blend turquoise and blue work of textile art called We Got the Blues.
