Somthing old

Almost everyday my hair is in a ponnytail. It is the easiest way to keep the hair away from the face.

However, yesterday function I felt for something else. Not an other day with ponnytail or hair hanging free. For me, to let the hair hanging free without anything in the hair is a big no no. While digging in my boxes with hairpins and all there were two hairpins which I remember from my childhood. They are sparkle a bit matching with my dress. So, why not to use them? I would never use this sparkle pins in normal situations, everyday lif but yesterday was a function therefore more proper to have sparkles.

So, in the end, sometimes it is good to keep old things because you never know when them might be useful again.

The offical preparations can start now

In earlier posts have been about my family in India and about my sisters wedding (which I can not attend due to fianl exams). But, she did send some photos from a ritual which they have before the offical preparations for the wedding could start.

My question is why this ritual what is the history behind it, what do they do during the ritual? The only thing I could figure out was the people at the ritual were women from the family. Also, everyone were really beautiful in the sarees. Still what do they do at the ritual? I do know and can even understand from the photos…

Does anyone know? I am so lost!

So for the function I am going to wear this pretty little dress by Ritu Kumar. I bought the dress in 2011 but almost never used. My handbag is a simple black longchamp. I have not decided if I am going for high heels or flats, let see.

Today is the big day

Since the morning I have had a crazy feeling, almost the same feeling as I have before a paper. Lack of concentration, ants in my pants, hard to sit still, all this and a mind which can not concentrate that good. Well, all this because of this evenings function.
I am going to meet the director of Mary Kom, and interview sir. How big is this not? I think I have never done anything like this before. This is huge!
Also, in my eyes Bollywood is bigger then Hollywood. You might wonder why, because India produce doubt amount of movies then Hollywood. I might have to confess, some of my favorite actors are in Bollywood.
However, for this event I have an idea of what sort of clothes to ware, but still I am rethinking and wondering do I have an other top or dress to wear. The invitation letter says informal, in what amount, because this event is organized by the ambassador of India. Which mean at least, properer dress

Before the evening’s function I have to study. More right, find the price on stocks, this process takes a lot, a lot of time. 5-6 hours for an event with 21 companies….
