Curvy Fashion: Outfits from my Sister-in-law’s Wedding!
Hi everyone, today I have a fashion post for you. I have a very classic sense of style that emphasises comfort more than anything else. For special occasions, however, I love to dress up and do not mind being a bit uncomfortable. My sister-in-law got married in the first week of February 2017 and even though I was crazy busy, being the daughter-in-law of the house, I took out time to dress up and have some fun. Here are a few of the details about the day!

When the date of my sister-in-law’s wedding was set, I had plans of renting a lehenga in mind. I had bought a lehenga fo my other sister-in-law’s wedding and I have only worn it twice. I feel like such an expensive piece of garment must be worn multiple times and that lehenga sitting in my wardrobe just makes me think of all the money that went into buying it. I feel like I have not been able to extract the value matching its worth. Anyway. So I had plans of renting a beautiful lehenga for the wedding.
But then a couple of months ago, we came across a shop in Uttam Nagar (Delhi Saree House) where they sold semi-stitched lehengas at great prices. I decided to take a look at their collection. They started showing lehengas to me. I lied the first three they showed me but there was a colour that caught my attention in the pile in front of me. I asked the shop assistant to show it to me. The moment he opened it, I knew it was the one for me. When he told me the price, I was pleasantly surprised. Its cost was 4600 INR!
I bought it and spent 2000 INR on getting it stitched with Can-Can to add volume at the bottom. Here is a look at my lehenga choli:
I got a simple Kundan jewelry set from Soni Sapphire to add some bling to my mirror work lehenga.
I left the decision for makeup on the makeup artist at the Looks Salon (Subhash Nagar). I did ask for dewy skin, though. And I wanted to a lipstick matching the color of my dupatta which was a medium pink.
I usually do not experiment a lot with my hair but this time, I decided to go all out and experiment with my hair. I had a side braid in mind and I am glad that my makeup artist understood what I had in mind. In fact, she created a hairdo which was far better than what I had asked for. I call this hairstyle my Jasmine moment (Aladdin). The orchids perfectly matched my outfit as well. I should have gotten more photos clicked but I was too busy running around meeting everyone and generally having fun.
It can be a bit tough to perform all the wedding-related duties in your home AND dress up. It is pretty tiring and taxing on the mind. I felt like a zombie because I was not getting more than 4 hours of sleep per night. That is why I prefer going to a salon and relaxing there while the makeup artist does his/her magic. I have suffered a lot while getting ready on my own since other people want me to do their makeup or hair. So I don’t get much time to do anything for myself. I am glad that this decision paid off and I liked how the whole look turned out.
