Wish you all a very happy, healthy and glorious New Year 2014. With all the good memories of the year 2013 that went by I am looking forward to 2014 to unfold it’s surprises. Well the year that went by was very special one for me, wherein I took a big decision to bid by years long software career a goodbye and pursue my dream in fashion and beauty blogging. hmmm lots to be done and lots to be said in coming year 🙂
Since today is New Year so it got to be celebrated and needed something special for dressing too. And being a Lucknowi at heart couldn’t think of anything better than my favorite Lucknow Chikan anarkali suit. Chikankari is an intricate and artfully done hand embroidery on a variety of textile fabric like muslin, silk, chiffon, organza, net etc. Originally white thread was used to do embroidery on cool light shades of cotton garments but nowadays chikan work is also done with coloured and silk threads in contrast colours to make trendy pieces
I picked this anarkali kurta on my last trip to Lucknow as I just fell in love with the red color and gorgeous chikankari embroidery around the neck, paired with brocade borders. I am so much in love with anarkali dresses these days, I think they are very comfortable to wear and quite flattering for the occasions. I kept the accessories to minimal with only paisley shaped or buta shaped earrings and some fun red and golden polka dots nail art.
