This is the second outfit my mum and I put together!
My best friend was getting married, while I was super excited to attend all her wedding festivities I knew there was nothing in my closet appropriate to wear. But when you have a mum like mine, any outfit is possible!
So we went shopping. Looking for material that would eventually be my new outfit. When I saw this lime green lace with gold sequin work, I knew that was what I wanted! The lace was gorgeous and I knew that would be the top of my Lehenga also known as a Choli. Finding the matching lime green for the skirt was a little difficult, but we managed to get the right shade.
Now that I had the material, we needed to decide on a pattern. I knew with how pretty the lace was I wanted it sheer in some places. So we drew out a sweatheart neck for the Choli lining, but a high neck for the Choli so there was sheer lace around the neck. The sleeves were the same material as the skirt. The back would be open with a circular cutout and ties at the top and bottom.
Now for the skirt, I got onto ethnicdukaan.com looking for borders to brighten up my green skirt. I found two, a sequin gold border and a beautiful zari border with a circular pattern on a lime green background. They were perfect! The sequin gold border would be the top and bottom border for the skirt and the circular zari boarder would be placed at the bottom of the skirt, about an inch above the sequin border. The borders really gave life to the skirt!
For the dupatta, I bought a beautiful glitter net material and used the sequin border on it.
My mum put this all together in about a day! it turned out perfect, like her work always does 🙂
For the jewelry, I bought gold Indian jewelry and matching earrings. I am wearing a Marc Jacobs watch and carrying a J.Crew clutch in gold. I finished off the look with a dark pink lip and smokey eyes using the Urban Decay palette!
This was my look for the Mehendi function. I absolutely loved how it turned out!
