So my cousin got engaged yesterday and this is what I wore to the event. I love dressing up in ethnic wear and because there are only limited Indian events to attend in Bahrain, Whenever I am in India, I go all out when there's a festive occasion around the corner. But this time, I made sure I looked the part but cut down on the splurging.
More on what I'm wearing, I've purchased the top separately in a small local boutique in Bahrain and picked out fabric for the dupatta and pants and got them stitched. I used raw silk for the pants and tulle for the shawl and got these really cheap gold borders for the dupatta and attached it to make it a little more dressy. So while everyone else is splurging on wearing designer pieces for the engagement, Total cost of my outfit?
Kurti: BD 6
Pants fabric plus stitching charges: BD 5.500
Dupatta fabric plus stitching charges: BD 2
Total cost: BD 13.500
Win? I think so!
On another note, I'm all about kundan jewelry at the moment.
