Today, was my little trip to kinari bazaar day!!! (Actually little is a wrong word- it took about forty minutes of drive plus fifteen minutes of metro plus a rickshaw ride to get me there, but it was well worth it !) For those unaware about what this ‘kinari bazaar’ is and why do brides to be go to all the trouble of visiting the muddy bylanes , let me tell you that kinari bazaar is the place where you can pick up borders, embellishment and all sort of stunning stuff to add to sarees, suits and anything you wish (even your underwear if you may, except swarovski work might be a LITTLE uncomfortable down there -OUCH!)


Kundan Work Borders- i picked up one border from this shop to add to my second dupatta for my lehenga (Yayie!)

Need some trays and stuff to pacjage gifts? Kinari has that too!

Ever seen 500 varieties of lace???? You will see this at Kinari Bazaar .. LOVE!

Some pretty threadwork borders to adorn your salwar kameez?

A random shop in Kinari Bazaar selling sarees- its called Saree Emporium i think. I loved the colors on display- that mint green saree is fab!!!

Need some embellishments to add to your dupatta ends? See that pearl embellishment (the pair) , totally love that!!!!

That last photo is from Fashion PHD, who did this amazing post on Kinari Bazaar, which itself inspired me to go there. Check it out here .

Moral of the story: If you are on a budget, or even if you are not , go to Kinari  Bazaar!!! You can find a ton of stuff here that regular boutiques sell for like ten times the amount!!! Also- while i was there shielding my face from the sun and getting thirsty , this reader recognised me and came up to me , She was getting married too and shopping with her fiance so shout out to her !!! ( If a guy agrees to go to Kinari Bazaaar with you, you know he is for keeps- mine wont even wait for 5 minutes in an a/c mall !!!!)…My dad got all suspicious though when i was recognised (” Just how many photos of yourself do you put up Mehak , how come people are recognising you??? *scowling face* “)

The prices for the borders range from  200 to 5,000/-
