When people told me that ill ‘NEVER’ wear my shaadi lehenga again, i knew that wasn’t entirely true. You see, living in a Punjabi family means that not only do you wear your wedding lehenga on your brother/sister/ cousins wedding and look like half a bride yourself but you also wear it on your first Karva Chauth. I dont know why, i dont quite see the point of wearing it and doing basically nothing, staying in the house but hey ! Excuse to dress up is an excuse to dress up!!!
Is it totally vain to say that no matter how many times i see my lehenga , i still absolutely love it :p This time atleast i could wear it with my hair down and in a more relaxed way so my head wasnt wobblling back with the weight of the dupatta all the time!!! I also changed up the jewellery, and wore a polki/emerald necklace. (Though i think the simple gold and polki one i wore on my wedding looked better with this because there is already so much color in the lehenga).
What about you guys? Do you have a tradition of wearing your wedding lehenga? Are you the kind of people who think Karva chauth is ‘Regressive’ ?? For me, its simple- if a day of fasting can bring me tons of gifts and special treatment- and an excuse to get all dressed up again- im not complaining! By the way, i nearly broke my fast yesterday- woke up early morning asking my mom to pass me the water bottle, and she without realising passed it to me. Only when i was just about to take a sip i realised EEKS !!!! Hehe… though Maybelline Baby Lips kept my thirst away you know. I guess the lack of water was making my lips feel dry and making me even more thirsty but Mango Pie did the trick!!!
