New address

Hello my readers.

I just wanted to let you know that I changed my other blog address from odetofashion.blogspot.com to odetofash.blogspot.com.

Some bug or virus was attached to it and I already apologized for it. It took me a while to figure it out. I am not that Internet and computer savvy.

Anyway please check out odetofash.blogspot.com. I promise to have new articles for you to read soon.


Dandiya night

The kids and I went to their school's Dandiya night. Dandiya is another Indian festival ( more details here). I was very excited about going because I heard that there would be Garba, a dance with sticks. I fell in love with Garba after watching it in one of my favorite movie Bride and Prejudice. The dance was so beautifully choreographed that I wanted to see it live.  Well, during the festival at the school, the children and the teachers performed and it was as good as I expected it to be. But the highlight of the night, was to see everybody in their Indian attire. As a fashion addict, it was a feast for the eyes to see all the bejeweled Ghagra, Sari, Anarkali, Choli and more. It was a kaleidoscope of mirrors, sequins, beads, lace, tulle, tassels, gold, silver, colors. Oh, it was overwhelmingly pretty! I just wanted to take a picture of everything, touch every fabric and drool over how it was made. It was pure fashion orgasm. Too bad my camera does not do well at night. I manage…

Who wore it better?

I wanted blue skinny pants for a very long time but never found the right pair. I was about to give up when I stumble into this random shop on MG road that had some blue pants in stretchy fabric and in my size. I bought them on impulse instantly regretting it because they fit but not as well as a skinny jean. In other words, they are not jeans, which I think have more support. Plus these tend to sag at the bottom always forcing me to pull them up (something I discovered after I wore them for a day)
Anyway, I went home with my new skinny pants, and I am faced with another problem: the styling. I am tired of always going safe with white blouses and denim shirt but what else to pull? I forgot about the pants until I saw a pic of one of my cousin on Facebook rocking the blue pants with a coral blouse. I am thinking that I do have a pink blouse that slightly resemble hers so why not steal her style?
