I visited India few weeks ago and was waiting to get back to my traditional indian attires. When I lived in India I never really enjoyed wearing Salwar Khameez but past few years I miss wearing them. So the very next day I landed in India I was wearing this simple sequenced pink salwar khameez from Vintage Desi . They always have something for very occasion and this was perfect for the brunch invitation.
For those of my readers who don't know what is a salwar khameez, here's a simple description. Its an indian ethnic attire that most of women in India will be seen in, including all ages from teenagers to the elderly. It consists of 3 pieces. Firstly the salwar that is the pant/trousers which could be fitted or loose. Here the one am wearing is fitted at the ankles with many wrinkles at the end. So its longer than your actual height and you pull it up and arrange the wrinkles. Now Khameez is the tunic/top which can vary in length. Mine is knee length with side slits and short sleeves. In India we usually get these tailor made for our sizes and style preferences. I miss those days when I used to spend hours at my tailors shop debating over which pattern I like, the length of the top and the neckline etc..
The third piece is the long scarf/stole called as dupatta. You get various combinations of salwar Khameez with contrasting dupattas or all of similar color, you could check the wide variations here(Click HERE).
These diamond studded rose earrings from Vintage Desi's Designer Jewelry section (click here) were a perfect match for this look. I like big earring with delicate details like this piece. And to finish of the look I added a pink bindi. Please do let me know what you think of this look??

Well in these pictures i do look jet lagged and tired but I still wanted to share these with my readers. When I wore this salwar khameez Mr. R fondly called me 'Cotton Candy'. On our way to the brunch we stopped at a temple and clicked few pictures. Here they are, in case you are wondering about my footwear well in Indian temples we go bare footed.
