DH and I have been invited to a Bollywood fancy dress party. I think if I'm honest I feel a bit weird as a white couple "dressing up" like this and this respectively but maybe I'm over thinking it. That aside I would rather spend the money on something we may be able to wear another time. Thoughts? TIA
Wear an english outfit but wear indian accessories with your outfit, like bangles or maybe a bindi ( little dot on head). My dad is of dual heritage, english and indian, and my mum is italian. When I am invited to an indian party or wedding, I sometimes wear an english dress but just use indian accessories. Having said that you can buy some really nice elegant looking indian sarees that wont break the bank. I have seen a few hollywood celenrities wearing gorgeous sarees on the red carpet.
