Work Outs

Omg I finally got to wear something I’ve been DREAMINGGGG to wear my whole life! #diwali #fashion

Omg omg omg I got to wear something I’ve been DREAMINGGGG to wear my whole life! No really, I think Indian clothing is some of the most beautiful in the entire world – so vibrant, sparkly, and twirly with a bit of sexiness all while feeling like a princess!

When @Lilly Singh invited me to her Diwali (festival of lights) party, I knew I wanted to wear something really special, especially since the invite encouraged it. So I reached out to one of my closest friends and incredible Indian American singer and songwriter @Vidya Vox and asked her for some guidance on what to buy. She was like buy? Why don’t you design?? And I was like design??? And she was like umm yeahhhhh. Vidya put me in touch with her personal seamstress in India Vidhi Gurnani (https://www.instagram.com/stylebyvidhi/) and we got started REAL QUICK.

Must haves:
✔️ super flowy skirt with a HIGH slit and POCKETS
✔️ long sleeve bra top with super wide square neckline and crisscross back
✔️ a red toned organza floral fabric to pair with gold accents for a romantic and celebratory feel

It was soooooo much fun designing my very own lehanga, and when I put it in for the first time, I pretty much died. I felt like Princess Jasmine. (Can I say that!??) Sam also looked so good in his kurta that I found on Amazon! 😁

I am so happy that I got to finally wear a beautiful Indian dress for the first time and I’m grateful that my friends encouraged it too. On that note…as someone from a Vietnamese and Chinese background, I want you to know that I personally do not feel offended when a person of a different ethnic background wears an Ao Dai or Qipao. If you’re wearing it because you think it’s beautiful and you feel beautiful in it, then to me, it’s a show of respect to me and my culture.
