About the look:
Finding the right shirt to go with this amazing paisely printed coat took forever to find. When I found the right one, how amazing is it that apart from the similar color palettes complementing each other, the shirt and coat are tied also similarly in a cultural context....in an Indian context. It wasnt done consciously. I just realized it when I wore the two while having lunch at a resto that my shirt reminded me of chili flakes/seeds or spices I saw at out table. Spices and paisely are so India! Very Kismet.

About the paisley:
I am a huge fan of paisley. I just love how it appears so ancient and mystical. It was why I bought this amazing paisley fabric eight years ago. When I left Cebu to work in Manila, I left tons of fabric back home including this one. Amazingly, my mom discovered my fabric loot and took the paisley fabric and had it made into an amazing coat. Now, since she got tired of it, I asked for the jacket. Now thats what you call fashion karma loop:)
