Dreams do come true

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As the title of the blog post suggests, I am going to start by saying dreams do come true!

It is every girls dream to own a wardrobe as big as the ocean.  Of course for practical and monetary reasons this is not possible!  But with Dress me Desi Weddings this dream can be true.  You can wear different outfits to each wedding function and party without having to worry about storage and spending money on purchasing the outfits.

If you are conscience about repeating your outfits and get bored of them easily like me, then Dress me Desi Weddings is the perfect stop for all things Desi.  I recently collaborated with the up coming brand, and the creative director, Nabiha Khan, has embarked on a beautiful project.   If you are a bride-to-be, bride’s sister, mother or friend and are looking to be economical on the BIG DAY then do check out www.dressmedesi.co.uk.  You can rent outfits for a reasonable price and it is a one stop portal for all things wedding too (including vendors for lighting, decoration, food, flowers and everything else you need)!

Speaking from experience, it is a fabulous idea,  as my wedding outfits are just collecting dust in my wardrobe and if you hire out the outfits from dressmedesi you do not have to worry about the storage nor the price tag that comes with it.  It truly is a win-win situation.

Do check out the lovely outfits on the website or a sneak peak on my instagram page (asweetrohmance).

Anita Dongre outfit

This time of year is quite my favourite – it is cool and yet not cold. Not only are the trees at their best colour but it is also Hindu new year.  For me Diwali (which is the Hindu new year) is one of the favourite festivals of the year.  It is a good build up to Christmas for me, as it is celebrated like a mini Christmas event in every Hindu household, so I am lucky I get to celebrate Christmas twice a year and in close succession too.

New clothes are bought for Diwali, if you are lucky new jewels are also adorned. It’s that time of the year when you meet and speak to all family and friends that have been lost in the daily grind.  Apart from putting on a few kilos with the lovely home cooked food and sweets, it is also a great time for cleaning the house and getting rid of stuff that one doesn’t want or use to welcome the Gods.  For me I love getting dressed (any opportunity to buy and wear new clothes is a happy occasion).

This Diwali I decided to support a completely new designer, Anita Dongre, whose clothes I have not worn before, but are they fabulous in their fit, fabric feel and look? Let me know your thoughts!  The ethnic yet modern prints make it a versatile combination.  The sharara or palazzo pants can also be worn with a plain tee to make it more indo western and on the other hand the top can also be worn with jeans to get more wear out of it.  I certainly felt like a million bucks.
