  1. I love Fish Cut Lahanga and Cotton Anarkali. But as in my family, most of the ladies wear Saari on other’s wedding, I had to wear a Saari in a family wedding that happened in Nov last year. I wanted to wear a Lahanga but with the thought of becoming Odd One Out, I finally wore a heavy Saree.

  2. I’m a big fan of heavy designer anarkali and cotton anarkali. I have dozens! I’m all set for this wedding season.
