What I Wore: Eid 2016
I got this dress when I was shopping in Karachi with my mom and I absolutely fell in love with it the moment I saw it. This was one of the first outfits I picked out myself for my wedding clothes. It is very traditional and heavy, full of work, and yet so effortlessly chic.
The fabric is Crinkle chiffon, and it's got a mixture of a lot of different work. Rhine stones, thread work, etc.
With.. A gorgeous back!
For jewelry, I wore this set that my mom got made for me in Pakistan.
I got a lot of people asking me where I got it from, but my dear mother-in-law got it for me from the U.S., so I'm not sure if it's still available.

The pants had an ombre' effect. It transitioned from a light to a very rich grey color.
I love these shoes, they're very versatile, you can dress them up or dress them down.
Here I found something similar for affordable price:
What I liked about this dress is that it's heavy and traditional, but not too old fashioned. It has a modern touch to it, which makes it perfect for people who don't like typical heavy clothes. AKA moi ;)
Look for less:
It is on the pricier side if you are looking at a ready to wear dress that is this heavy, but you can definitely cut the cost by getting it custom tailored to your exact size. When I was in Pakistan few months ago, they have some of the best tailors that can make fabulous dresses to your liking in terms of fit and finish. Just make sure you have time until the event, in which you want to wear it to (depending on heaviness of work, some designs can take months to make).
