I have accepted that I can never be the woman who laughs softly or talks in a voice audible only to the person next to her. Neither can I say that I have never spilled wine on my evening dress nor do I know how to master the “right” way of sitting with my legs crossed. Dad tells me that a lady should never cry in public – but I become quite the drama queen when I have to see off a close friend at the airport. Well – I guess , Jane Austen would never approve of me 🙂
BUT ( of course there’s a but 🙂 ) I sure can play dressup like a lady. What better than pearls to exude some ladylike grace and elegance ?
When I received this pearl necklace from India Trend – I knew that besides pairing it with my Indian outfits , it would go really well with my dresses. The combination of a black sheath dress and pearls is such a classic – reminds me of Jackie O, Lady Diana or legendary Breakfast at Tiffany’s ensemble. Such epitomes !
I am very excited to bring you an amazing giveaway from India Trend Boutique – just in time for Diwali 🙂 I love that their pieces are so versatile and affordable. You must check out their Moghul inspired collection – some of the pieces are to die for. This bangle and these earrings are my favorite and would make for beautiful holiday gifts & they offer free worldwide shipping – can’t go wrong with that 🙂

Yesterday my hubby & I celebrated Karva Chauth. Its like the Hindu version of Valentine’s Day , if you ask me. Married women spend the entire day ( until moonrise) without food & water – but the feast later more than makes up for it. And honestly , I could fast every once in a while , if it gives me an excuse to dress-up traditionally and get gifts from the hubby 🙂
Here are some pics of me in an Indian sari and of the rituals that are performed on this occasion. Hope you enjoy them !
My guess is , the only other person besides me , who waits for the Saks Friends & Family Sale must be Santa Claus – now who doesn’t love a great deal ? 🙂
