A dress you wore on a special occasion.
- What the occasion was?
- What did you wear?
- How did people react?
I have always been very fond of wearing a variety of dresses as per the requirement of occasion. In that sense one can call me a fashion freak as well. Whenever there is any event either in my family or I have been invited by my friends, I always take extra care of my attire.
One such incident which I can vividly recall was when I wore a proper Indian dress. It was my brother’s wedding. I still remember that day as I was flooded with compliments from each and everybody.
Family functions always give you an opportunity to get dressed up the way you’ve dreamt of. After doing a lot of research and taking opinions from a few designers who run renowned boutiques in my city, I ended up my search with a traditional ethnic dress. It was a 3 piece dress comprising a long skirt, top and a stole. The whole dress was embellished with golden embroidery and pearls. It was yellow in colour as it’s an ideal colour for wedding celebrations. I should also say that yellow goes well with my skin and it enhances my complexion.
Dressing up took quite a while and I was actually late for the celebration. When I reached the venue, most of the guests were already there. They were waiting for me eagerly. Seeing me in proper Indian attire left them with no words. To my surprise, almost everybody came to me personally to compliment me for my choice of dress. I was overwhelmed with their comments. The wedding was over but my dress became a talk of the town.
