Learning how to wear a saree… and loving it!

Last Monday, we had a diversity potluck at work, where people got to dress in traditional clothes and brought delicious dishes from our original countries.

There’s no true traditional Argentinean fashion -unless you want to see me dressed as a ‘gaucho’ from the Argentinean pampas-:

… yeah… I didn’t think so either…

So 2 of my Indian friends from my team offered to bring in sarees and help me  and another girl dress for the event.

I was delighted and enjoyed it so much, that I am seriously thinking of getting a saree and choli -blouse that goes underneath- or then make one for myself. Take a look:

And another picture with some of the Chinese ladies:

The event was a hit, we had so much fun and delicious dishes. I made ‘Panqueques de dulce de leche’, but not everybody got to try them, because it was gone in just a few minutes!

After a few minutes… this happened!

      Thank you Nima for visiting!

      Yeah… all the sarees I was offered were really beautiful, but the one I chose also had a really pretty embroidery work that I loved.

      Have a great week!
