freaky friday vlog!

in honor of the gopi skirt give-away, today's vlog addresses the many ways to wear a dupatta. please pardon the low lighting and my fast talking. the low-battery light on my camera started flashing half way through taping and I was afraid it was going to shut off. yet, somehow this vlog is still almost ten minutes long. huh. anywho, one thing I forget to mention is that you really want to pin the dupatta in as many places as necessary to avoid looking messy and having it fall all over the place. just a little tip.

Hi Mala
I know the first 2 styles you showed..I usually wear them that way..The first style you showed is worn in most south indian states(iam from the south).The second style is Gujrati style..Even the gujrati style saree is worn the same way..Great job your doing & its helpful for people who dont know how to wear it. Your model is so sweet & cute :)

I'm so embarrassed - because last night when I was laying in bed it all of a sudden clicked and I thought - "PUNJABI!? WHAT?! NO! GUJARATI!!" I knew when I said it that it wasn't right, but for the life of me I couldn't remember the correct term. lol! oh well, I guess I was right when I put in that "I'm no expert" disclaimer! ;)

it also goes to show my total and utter lack of geographical knowledge... because isn't punjab in the north?! lol!

Wow your blog makes me feel that I should wear Indian attire (Sarees & Bindi) more often than I do here. Ya as Rajini said .. I just wanted to point out the first style is South Indian & second style is Gujarati (or North Indian).

Mala..Yes..you are right.Punjab is in the north & they don't wear sarees or lehenga cholis much.You would usually see them in Salwar Kameez.Gujrat is kind of east/north indian.Yeah its kind of confusing since each state has different cultures & styles of dressing.Don't be embarassed.You are doing a great job.I just wanted to share the little knowledge i have..lol.Your video is great.Love it :).Thanks for the amazing thing you are doing.
