If fashion on a budget is what you are looking for, then Shalimar Bagh in Delhi is the place to drop by. It has jewelry available on rent, cosmetics, head bands, clutches and more. And for the weary shoppers, there’s a good range of food joints to pick from. Here’s a guide.
Jewelry on rent
For all those looking for trendy yet traditional jewelry, Durga Jewelers in AL-Market is a must-visit. The boutique has a variety of jewelry, whether heavy or light. Plus, you can buy or even take the jewelry on rent from here for around Rs. 200. Of course, for the heavy sets the store charges Rs. 400 per day. Available in zircon and other precious and semi-precious stones, the jewelry available here can add a splendid touch to your wardrobe. The chunky earrings especially are worth a buy apart from being on rent.
Clutches, Head bands
The kiosks at AL-Market boast of some good clutches and headbands which you can choose from. The clutches vary from small to medium size and come in different colors and shapes. These cost anywhere between Rs. 30 and Rs. 50.
If you are looking for some trendy hairbands, DT City Centre is the right place to visit. A kiosk boasting of Bangkok clutches, hair accessories and artificial jewelry, it is eye-catching. The bow shaped hairbands and the ones with pearls are popular.
Talking of hair accessories, you can even buy hair extensions in shades of red and blonde. The tic tac pins are available in varieties. As for artificial jewelry, the kiosk offers some stunning pieces. The beaded jewelry in multiple colors and shades of red, blue, yellow and pink would match with both ethnic and western outfits.
Tired post shopping? Head towards Everbake for pizzas, pasta, breads and more. The Penne pasta in white and red sauce is a must try here. If you like North Indian or Tandoori food, try Wah Ji Wah just next to Everbake. The Indian thali and Malai Chap (Tandoori dish with paneer filling that comes with salad and chutney) come recommended.
