Wow it has been way too long since i brought you a desi outfit look! And it’s been over 2 months, since i’ve dressed up for a desi event. So here’s my first desi look of 2016! Hope you guys love it!
The first weekend of January, we were invited to a Valima (basically a wedding reception hosted by the grooms family), and it was quite cold that night! Not that that ever helps when wearing desi clothes, but i just wanted to mention the weather lol.
Anyways, so a little story about this outfit. Originally, i got this made in 2012, when my cousin got married. However, the shirt + dupatta, we wore on her wedding/baraat/ruksati day, but instead of the pants underneath (which is how i wore this look for this valima), we wore them over ghararas. But at the time, my mom was smart and got pants made too, so we could reuse this outfit in a more casual/less fancy way, and basically got two outfits for 1!
Now i LOVE blue, as you all know, so i love this outfit! It was my first time wearing it with the pants (smh, as i’ve had this for 3 years, but forgot about it until now ), and everyone loved how it turned out!
This outfit is custom tailored in Pakistan, so i can’t provide any details of how to get this for yourself!
Take a look at how it turned out:
The outfit incorporates the gold and pink on the border of the shirt as well as the dupatta. The bottom/border of the shirt is all ‘bale’ work. Not actual handwork/thread work, but just other cloth with design on it that was sewn on top of the shirt.
I like the pink & gold work with the blue, because it adds color and more to the outfit. I paired it with my nude heels, although i need to get my hands on a pair of gold heels for upcoming weddings! Suggestions of where i can find this are welcome!
Here’s few more snaps of the detailing on this outfit!
Let me know what you guys think of this outfit!
