It’s that time of year where wedding invitations start streaming in! Neighbours, friends, family of friends, your cousins twice removed; everyone seems to be getting married, and while Hollywood embraces the glamour that comes with the pending awards season, we too will be strutting our stuff during the upcoming wedding season…which leaves us with the major dilemma of what to wear!!! Without the assistance of personal stylists at our disposal, or designers begging to dress us, we need to figure out how to put an ensemble together all on our own.
For this look, I used a piece of fabric with that would traditionally be used as a Salwar Kameez (dress & pants combo) which I got as a gift from my sister in law, and made it into a dress by adding the Indian silk brocade fabric on the top part of the dress as well as along the hem of the skirt, and used the pants fabric to make the full flair skirt part of the dress. The fabric features ornate Indian beadwork on the front of the dress as well as on the scarf, which adds to the opulence of the finished look. Because the dress had a long sleeve, I opted for an intricate hand chain in place of bangles. The necklace and earring were not overly big, but I did add a hair accessory which I think tied the look together well. A bronze and gold smoky eye with a bold red lip, completed the look!
