Firstly wishing each one of you “Eid Mubarak” . Being a Lucknow-ite Eid is my most awaited festival firstly because I live in old Lucknow and at the time of Ramdaan this side of the city just don’t sleep. People keep on hogging food all night, chai wallah’s serve awesome “Kava Chai” and what not and with all those lights and decorations in the market whole night it’s literally a scenic beauty. And when I say city don’t sleep trust me they don’t till sehari i.e around 5 am. All eateries stay open and you can experience some mouth watering street side food from sheer-maal kabab to kulche nihari, biryani, seekh kebabs and hundreds of other food & for all those who are sweet tooth’s for you there are special arrangements of shahi tukda, Kheer, Nan-Khatai (cookies made from flour) and how can I forget Kashmiri Kava chai. So basically this side of city buzzes around with all the happiness, fun and festivity in this month and I get totally addicted to it. I will post few pictures at the end so you all will get an idea of what I am talking..
Coming back to my post I wanted to look little traditional but different, because firstly being in Lucknow I always use to see collections of chikankaari items in shops. Actually when you live in Lucknow you get bored of seeing same designs,material and cuts everywhere but I took a chance and ordered few chikankaari Kurtas from SoVi and I was amazed that even though they were “chikan kurtas” but they were not the regular ones. With such a different cuts and quality of the cloth they truly stand out from the crowd.
I have paired it with my washed out denim and a simple beige colored ballerina as the top have beige chikankaari work. Because top is just too much sober I have decided not to use any accessory with it.
As soon as I have seen this kurti it gave me such a soothing feel that I have to buy it. It can be worn as tunic also with boho accessories but in my case I have paired it with white leggings, anklet and a flat chappal.
Grey Long kurti
This one is my personal favorite, from its cloth to its chikankaari it was just so amazing that I cannot even express in words. I have paired this long kurti with my white legging and silver flat ballerinas. I paired it with ethnic silver earrings which I have also used it with my green tunic.
Waiting for your feedback..
