The how-to lesson.....

   I am sitting as free as possible. Why? Because the city is at a complete shutdown and my supplies are almost finished so cant work much on anything new. I was planning to go shopping for beads, zari, threads, etc. today and start on a few orders but well.........*sigh*

  So I thought I should post a how to become a gola ganda lesson. You know those colourful desi yummy icy treats we've all had as a kid. Thats cause today if possible, I'm going to a friends place because shes leaving for further studies. She comes to my blog sometimes so a big wave to her....."Heeeyyyy S. Will miss you loads even if we havent been in touch much but still we were in the same town. Now you're leaving and me will miss ya!"

Okay so I've paired up something really colourful today which is why I was talking about a gola-ganda. I will probably look like one today but since I love colours I dont mind at all.

Okay so Step one take a really bright coloured dress which I got from a some place at Zamzama. Wont take names. 

Step two would be to pair it up with a bright scarf in my case it is a chunri which I got from a random dupatta wala. Quite cheap it was so I was really really thrilled. I loved it!!



Step three is to wear bright and colourful Kolhapuris. Okay so till now I have never made myself any Kolhapuris and even these are for my cousin which I completed just yesterday and I'm borrowing them from her for a day since they go with my look.




Last step is the earrings. These arent colorful actually but they have a rainbow tinged stone right in the middle which adds to the look.



There you go........you are now officially the gola-ganda!

Take a look.........the first picture has the dress and chunri snaps.......then the second picture has the Kolhapuris. Lastly its the earrings. Oh by the way I finally made these earrings for myself! Im happy!

P.S Karachi come back to normal!! *sigh* I hate seeing you this way!
