Karta: Le(f)t Me Be
The left side has gotten a bad rap for centuries. Academic fashionistas know that "sinister" is from the Latin word meaning "from the left side," religious fashionistas know that "left" is a fashion DON'T in Heaven, and the French fashionistas equate "gauche" with both clumsiness and being left-handed. However, Karta, an Indian-inspired line that is gaining fashion clout, begs to differ. This ruby-hued and left-jeweled blouse dazzles, and the medallion-shaped cluster is a badge of honor rather than a badge of shame. $290 at Neiman Marcus.
