Pretty in Pink! (And other colors, too.)

I'm not claiming that *I* am pretty in pink, mind you. I'm referring to how pretty the shalwar kameez are. :)


My attempt at a Bollywood Pose... My attempt at a Bollywood Pose...
Words cannot describe how much I love this shalwar kameez. I love everything about it - which is strange because I don't normally wear light pink and usually I hate lace. But this is sooooooooooooo comfortable!!
Pretty In Pink Pretty In Pink
Actually, I don't think I look all that pretty in this picture, but I had to wrestle Raven to get him to pose with me so it was kind of a stealth shot. How gorgeous is this pink lace?!?!
Raven Approved! Raven Approved!
This is my favorite!! How gorgeous is this?!?! OMG!! Seriously, I wish you could see this in person. It's so intricate (sp) and it's some colorful lacey stuff. I'm not even trying to describe it intelligently.
Mom and me! Mom and me!
I call this my DDR shalwar kameez because the design on the top looks a bit like the arrows from DDR. Dad called it clouds.
I took the yellow one back! I took the yellow one back!
You can't tell from the picture, but the yellow one has a lovely cutout lacey bit at the bottom and the top. So delicate! Mom's taking the coral one home to wear to church next trip home. :)



OH - when my parents came up to watch IT Crowd with me the other day, and I was showing them the clothes it just so happened that iTunes played a bollywood song!! I commented to Monkeys on how clever he was to play it, and he sheepishly said "it's not me, it just happened." How funny is that? Also, in the pictures with my mother and I - she was soooooo excited to try them on. In fact, she made a beeline for the yellow one. It was so cute. When I started to show her some I was originally only going to model two (the pink & the purple). When I finished my two, I asked if she wanted to try one on. Before I finished the question she was running to the bedroom and reaching for the yellow one. Ha!

I would make stacks of these if I could figure out how to make the pants. I love those pants! I can do the top. I had to remake mine. (Raven though it was the original) I'd have to take apart the pants to figure them out and I am SOOO not taking mine apart.

I think you ARE pretty in Pink.

MLR you look amazingly adorable and cute in those :D
would've been a damn shame if they had been wasted instead of going to someone who'd appreciate them like you do :D

so glad they fit, so glad you liked them - can't wait to dcon!
