I’m going to tell you about the time I was a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding last year. It was a spring wedding, so she wanted us to lớn wear light shades of purple with the men in silky, grey suits that were just divine. The exact date was May 13, 2017, held in a town known for its beautiful horse farms và sprawling (open, never-ending) fields called Hunt Valley. My cousin is a devout Christian (serious Christian), so she decided lớn get married in a Catholic Church with a backdrop of the gorgeous fields behind us.

Although the wedding was held on this day, I ordered my dress three months in advance and had it altered two times before the big day. I had put on weight during the months leading up, as I was going through a stressful break-up (end of a relationship). So I had lớn alter my dresses ordered for a size 10 to size 12. Moreover, at the last minute, I realized my heels weren’t tall enough, and the bottom of the dress was dragging along the floor, picking up dirt. So, I had it altered again by about 6cm. When all was said & done, the dress fit me like a glove (fit perfectly). The day before, I went lớn get a French manicure & had my hair and make-up done the morning. My cousin provided us with bouquets, a flower bracelet, and a set of gold earrings to lớn thank us for being a part of her special day.

Although the dress wouldn’t be my personal taste, I felt that I had to put on a face (smile even when you don’t like something) for my cousin’s sake. I know that a wedding day is one that a person cherishes, for their entire life, so I certainly didn’t want to fuss (complain). Furthermore, a wedding, especially in a church is a formal event, so I wanted khổng lồ dress accordingly. All in all, I did it for her!

So, on the occasion of Diwali, when I had to lớn wear something traditional, I scrounged through plenty of eCommerce sites khổng lồ find a dress.

It was back in 2019 and I simply wanted lớn doll-up on this festival. So, one day, I took out some time from my schedule and navigated through options available on varying sites. Fortunately, I came across a shimmery Lehenga Choli on Myntra.

At a glance, I found it attractive because of its peachy colour. Moreover, the model in those pictures had draped the Duppatta in an elegant manner.
