5 Rules of Buying Anarkali Suits Online

Anarkali Suits are one of the most worn clothing item after sarees in Indian weddings. Isn't it crazy? But not surprising at all. In last couple of years, Anarkali suits have taken over the Indian weddings apart from other festivities in India and everybody loves wearing them.

What makes Anarkali so different?

5 Rules of Buying Anarkali Suits Online

Anarkalis are voluminous, look royal and are available in countless designs. They have the length to match the elegance of sarees, use of churidars and dupattas to match the comfort of salwaar-kameez, bouncy volume with deep design and embroidery to beat the competition it may have with modern choices too. Anarkali to me is like a meeting point of traditional India with modern India because of the use of traditional materials as well as modern hybrid materials in making these long suits with vibrancy and essence with modern approach.

This year has been full of weddings for me and one thing was staple in the list of clothes-to-wear i.e. Anarkali. I had enough time to get an Anarkali stitched but what if I didn't have time? Then my first choice was and will always be buying online.

 

Buying Anarkali Suits Online For The First Time!

5 Rules of Buying Anarkali Suits Online

Buying Aanrkali Suits online is not an easy task because there are too many options to choose from that can be confusing. So, there are a few things that I will suggest we know before we take the plunge of buying it online.

Rule #1 Material Choices

I would always want to keep the material traditional for Anarkali when buying online. My choices will be georgette, cotton, silk, Banarsi etc. for an unstated elegance. These material are heartbeat of Indian ethnic wears, you can never go wrong with these and they look good on everybody.

 Rule # 2 Highlights of Anarkali


For me, Anarkalis have three sections and only one of those should be the highlight of whole design and they are 1. bodice/blouse 2. length 3. Dupatta . Embroidery is an inseparable part of Anarkalis and it makes Anarkali stand out of the crowd after volume in length. Go for a heavy embroidered length and understated elegant bodice or go for a plain suit with heavily embroidered dupatta. Everything heavy and you'd look too occupied.

Rule # 3 Colorpalette Of Anarkali

Let's say all colors look good on you so it's a no brainer that Anarkali in any color would look good. But in my opinion, it is not the case. I have seen many ladies from celebrities to real life who looked like they were not dressed right because the color palette did not work for them. It happens because Anarkali has too many things going on in it from length to dupatta, embroidery to other works like gota-patti. So always stick to a monochromatic color, all pastels, egg yolk yellow, coral red, coffee brown and berry shades. that means bright red, orange and blue should not be the base of your choice first. If you want these colors, let them be subtle in form of something light and elegant like threads used to make the neckline and sleeves.

Rule # 4 Length Of Anarkali

This one is going to be quick. Currently we have three types of lengths in Aanrkali suits.

1. Regular Length that ends right before the ankle and sometimes ends at mid-way on calves.

2. Floor-Length, you just don't get to show off your churidars. Nobody will see and it would look like you are walking in a Indian traditional chic gown.

3. High-Low Hemline - This one is the latest and should be chosen carefully as your churidar plays an important role.

Which length you should choose? If you are short, go for regular or high-low. If tall, choose any one of all three.

Rule # 5 Alaways buy from a trusted website

When I say that, I mean the shipping and delivery should be good and trustworthy because you might want your Anarkali to arrive on-time so you can wear it on-time. Call the customer care and ask away. Remember if website is genuine, it cares of its customers they will never every promise you of faster delivery. They would always tell you about their shipping and delivery policies. So what's the point? The point is that a trustworthy online shopping website will promise that it would not take longer than that from their side in shipping your purchases. Now a days websites send SMS with information on every step from shipping to delivery, tracking number and even courier company name.

These are 5 rules that I follow when it comes to buying Anarkali suits online.

Here is a list of websites to buy Indian, Ethnic Clothes and Accessories Online

A Nigh Cream That Kept My Skin Glowing and Stress Free Throughtout Summer!

BEAUTY

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤



Have you ever noticed in my reviews that I never recommend anything with strong words? This is because I am intimidated by the fact that what if you don't like something as much as I like and think that my recommendations are not correct.

But isn't it wrong for the products that really work their bottoms off and pay really good result? It certainly is! That is why even before mentioning the facts why I like Kaya Skin Clinic's Overnight Brightening Moisturizer, I'd totally recommend it to everybody who is looking for a night cram that makes your skil look supple an glowing - GO FOR IT!

Kaya's brightening serum promises you to make your skin firm, smooth and radiant. I couldn't agree more! My skin acts weird during summer/monsoon and this is one of the things that kept it look glowing. I know for sure that this is what has worked because I kept changing my face wash and sometimes I skipped my day time moisturizer which is Lakme Perfect Radiance range but I wasn't regular with that either.

I liked how it doesn't break me out, it has made my pores look small, almost close to nothing. My skin remained as it is even if I forgot using it r became lazy. 

It is filled with goodness of bio-flavinoids,  extract of imperata cylindrica, purple orchid and Japanese cherry etc.  They do their job of lightening, tightening and calming the skin. Priced at Rs. 1600 (approx) for 50 ml, it might sound expensive but it is not because I am already in my 3rd months and this moisturizer is half way through. If you divide 1600 with 4 it comes out to be 400. So you are actually paying Rs. 400 for a moisturizer that runs more than 4 hours and works wonders on skin.

In the end, I'd say, just use this moisturizer nad make your skin look healthier!

My Baby Girl's Flower Headbands!

My Baby Girl's Floral Headbands! Claire's , Elitify

 Finding floral hairbands for my baby girl was quite a task. One day I decided to check out Claire's while window shopping in Ambiance Mall, Gurgaon. Claire's could be a one stop shop for such accessories that you can’t find easily - elastic hair bands, floral hair bands, different kinds of had gears, earrings, accessory organizer what now. 

But I found Claire's very expensive. I bought two hairbands in Rs.890. One of them is in above picture. There is another one in black and white polka dots. Otherwise I found other hairbands of very cheap quality, flowers and stitching. So my suggestion is if you are trying to find a girl accessory which is not available anywhere, then check out Claire's but make your choices carefully as quality is not that good and price is high.

The hairbands that you see in other two pictures are Emma Jane's hairbands bought on Elitify.com. I am really happy with the quality and how comfortable, skin friendly texture is of these hairbands unlike Claire's hairbands.

These hairbands come in a pack of 8 for Rs. 1495. 8 hairbands in 1500 is not a bad deal if I compare it to Claire's.  Plus how cute they make my girl look.

  •  I am inactive on blog these days because I have recently joined a new project and new responsibility. My shift has changed due to this. I have to get-up earl in the morning to complete my daily chores, make lunch and pack lunchbox of my little girl and then again cleaning, mopping, dishes etc when I come back home. I really don't get time and by the time I want to work on posts, it i time for me to go to bed. But I am loving my routine as I am getting back to normal routine after doing night shifts for close to 8 years.
