Tuesday fashion show!

A while back I mentioned that I had received some Indian clothes from the coworker of my father-in-law. Last night, I set up the tripod and we took some snazzy photos (wow – that sounds so suspicious when I type it out like that).

Firstly, we have the Salwar Suit of Immense Floweryness:

Lea will be the recipient of the kameez, and I’m keeping the rest; I have a white kameez that will look good with it (and will make the flower pattern a little less overwhelming)

Next, there is the Salwar Suit of Surprisingly Well-Suited Grey and Coral:

So named because I honestly thought it would look ghastly on me, but it really doesn’t!

And then, the most intriguing of the whole batch, The Sari That Could Also Potentially Be a 1970s-Era Prom Dress:

This is also the same sari that was on the CG at the Halloween party. It looks a lot better on her.

And finally, the one that’s the best, which is the green sari with gold embroidery:

I will actually get a lot of wear out of that one, as the embroidery is tasteful and it goes pretty well with my skin tone.

Although it is not of the above gift lot, I had to share my birthday sari:

I would so totally wear this every single day, if I could. It makes me feel like a princess. I will post more photos when the blouse is done.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    They are all gorgeous! I am really enjoying living vicariously thru your Indian passions.

    I don’t know which one I love more: the green one or the blue one.

    I love the last two – and man, the peach one IS so prom-dress-ish… 🙂

      The last two are by far my favorites; I saved them for last. I’m glad you agree!

      I so want to find a place to wear the peach one. I searched for an actual prom dress that matched it in hideousness, and was unsuccessful. I imagine somebody loved it once, though.
