The Desi Wardrobe of a Delhi Girl

Street Style Delhi:

No matter what, if you are a girl who lives in Delhi, there are certain items that you would definitely have in your wardrobe. I have run into girls who are wearing the nicest anarkalis you’d ever see, and on asking would say that they don’t really wear a lot of anarkalis or enjoy wearing them; the anarkali is just there in their wardrobe, courtesy a gift from their mother/brother/friend or a random visit to Dilli Haat/ Chandni Chowk/ etc.

Girl Guide: Wearing a Saree and inside scoop on Pujo

Street Style Delhi: Indian Street Fashion
Art+Culture: Festive

My only affiliation with the Bengali side of India is a friend who made me hate fish curry a little less. But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been a silent admirer of the ways and particularly of the Pujo time. When I threw this idea on the table (not figuratively) of doing a story around it, Aalok retorted with his usual cross questioning – do you think you know enough? did you research? don’t culturally appropriate?- “K, cool.”
