It's the wedding season here in India and for the first time, I was invited to a punjabi sikh wedding. So, keeping with the mood of punjabi heritage, I chose a simple white tunic with pretty red roses mitifed all over with red gathered pants(churidar)..but the Pièce de résistance of the outfit is the colorful phulkari dupatta (or wrap) which has the overwhelming presence!!!
Phulkari Dupatta: 1469
Gold Tone Sandals: Khadim's
Double Pearl Necklace: Wedding Gift
shades: Miami blues
Please excuse me for not so good quality pics as we were inside a Sikh religious temple(gurdwara) and we couldn't not be too bothered with poses and angles in the sunlight!!
I kept my accessories minimal with a double pearl necklace, a classic watch and simple drop earrings. The shades in the pic were incidental as we were clicking in the sunlight!!
Phulkari is a traditional embroidery technique of Punjab region and literally means floral working. sometime ago, my dear friend and fellow blogger 'nivi' (blog - New Beginnings) wrote a beautiful post about Phulkari heritage in Punjabi culture, please do go over her post to read more on this beautiful embroidery and how to fashion it in today's times!!(click here)
