Outfit of the day - Pink sari

This is the sari I wore to a wedding - and considering it was my first time wearing a sari - it held up pretty well!

Eid Mubarak to anyone celebrating Eid today! This Ramadan has been so long - long days coupled with the earlier heatwave made for difficult fasting, but we got through it! Last night for Chaand Raat (Translated as night of the moon - night before Eid) Asif and I went to Green Street in east London to do window shopping, and take in the atmosphere.
There was a good party atmosphere and nearly every shop had girls doing mehndi. Looked very pretty.

So now to this outfit, I don't have a picture of my Eid outfit as I will be wearing that later but thought I would show you this outfit that I actually wore quite a while back but just found the pictures for. It is a pink sari that my mum got especially made for me from Pakistan as one of my wedding presents last year.

I love the deep shade of pink with the gold/ silver embroidery along the border. It is dressy without being over the top. Being a sari-tying novice my mum got this made with a belt so the sari stays in place with the help of some hooks at belt level. Recommended!

I wore pinks and purples on my eyes from Urban Decay, and wore my hair in a bun thanks to a bun donut from Sleep in Rollers. I wore bangles a mixture of what I had picked up from Southall, and what my in-laws gave to me for my engagement, and the silver jewellery is from my auntie, which was a birthday present last year. I love the jhoombar worn on the side of the head, which comes out for weddings and parties. The perfect edition for a bun me thinks!

What do you think of the outfit? Can you recommend any other bun donuts?
