Happy New Year!

Going to celebrate Navroz (New Year.)

This is the most beautiful thing I own...a hand-embroidered salwar kameez from India - bought in a flurry on the last day of my trip. I always struggle with whether to wear this and risk it being damaged. Sometimes I think I should just hang it on the wall in my living room and admire it...

Walking into this store on a busy street in Bhandra was a revelation - racks and racks of beautiful silks, all embroidered with impossibly delicate designs. Pale lemon, pistachio green, creamy white... It was so hard to choose just one!
