Tis the Season.... for weddings

Hello all!! Hope you had a very Merry Christmas- I certainly did!! I had to go silent for a couple of weeks there because I was so panicked I was going to accidentally reveal the presents I was giving people!! I'm not the best at keeping secrets, and given the secret engagements and babies (not mine) that I had been keeping, my "secret" quota was full up!

While its been the Holiday season here, its actually wedding season in Mumbai. If you've ever been to, or seen an Indian wedding, then you know that the outfits are extremely ornate, and can get quite warm and heavy. And so, for the very practical reason of comfort, December = peak wedding season.

Indian weddings can also go on for days...  The average is probably 2-3 days, but I've known of a whole week worth of wedding events. Of course, with a different outfit for each event, this can add up to a closet-full of outfits with limited wear!! This is where Didi's Wardrobe comes in... founded by my friend Dina, Didi's Wardrobe provides a forum for people to buy and sell gently used South Asian clothing.

Now, you may be wondering, what this has to do with me and this blog... for one, starting in the new year, I will be doing a post a week on Didi's Wardrobe's blog, so if you feel so inclined, check out those posts too.  Now for where you come in... if you're attending an Indian wedding in 2012, you should check out the site for some inexpensive but unique outfits. You should also check out the site if you like dramatic jewelry-- you can find some really amazing pieces for some incredible prices!!!

In honor of the Holiday Season and the New Year, Dina has very graciously offered to sponsor a little giveaway on the blog. The giveaway is for this set of 4 pretty, silver bangle bracelets.
