So obviously I was wayyy thinner in 2011 but that doesn't mean that I can't use my old clothes. The refurbishing is super simple. The only quick tips that I can share are that you really need to first find the occasion to make your old lehenga work. I had also worn my sister’s wedding lehenga once and did not put any money in tailoring but instead opted for versatile pieces to go with it. Below is a photo and you can get all details for the same HERE.
Once you freeze the occasion, think of some contrasting colours to uplift the outfit. With this pink lehenga I had a pink net dupatta that I ditched and instead got a green leheriya dupatta with pink lines to compliment the lehenga skirt. Next I added statement accessories featuring earrings mostly and some hand jewels. Again I didn’t want to go over the top with this ensemble and that’s why I avoided any jewelry around the neck. This is an outfit that I’ll wear to my ghar ki mehendi, a night before our mehendi ceremony kicks in with all our guests joining in the celebrations.
