Happy Rakhi: Indian Outfit

Hello there! Happy Rakhi. This time there was some confusion regarding the Rakhi date. Initially, we all thought it was on 20th August 2013. But on 19th August 2013 we got to know that it is on 21st August 2013. So the long and short of it is that we celebrated Rakhi on 21st August 2013.
Now coming on to the more interesting part i.e. the outfit, this is what I wore- a beautiful green chanderi A-line kurta/semi-anarkali with churidaar and a printed dupatta. I absolutely love this suit. The colour is a beautiful shade of green and the dupatta is a mix of maroon, gold and green prints. The kurta has got some self style threadwork which runs across throughout the kurta. The churidaar is maroon (although it appears a shade of red in the photo). This suit was a part of my wedding trousseau. Now you might think that it’s too plain to be ‘trousseau material’ but I say it’s exactly these kind of Indian outfits that come in handy for several occasions which require you to be dressed-up in Indian wear, yet not be blingy. Anyway, too much chamki (bling) is not my thing. And I am happy to say that I was pleased with this outfit.

In case you’re wondering where is this outfit from, my Mum got the suit material from Meena Bazaar and we designed the outfit. The back is a (not so) deep-U and has a tie-up with beautiful, sparkly green latkans. Somehow I forgot to get the back photographed!
