Indian Party: What I Wore & My DIY Back Necklace

This past weekend was so much fun! I love family/ friend parties because you’re surrounded by people that you care about, good music, and good food (the open bar isn’t too bad either πŸ˜‰).

My friends Kamal and Vivak got engaged in Maryland. It was a punjabi party so I wanted to keep it traditional, but with a few glam accents. I wore a salwaar kameez that I had worn before.
It’s green and white β€” my favorite color is green and I love how white looks on my skin tone.
I actually designed this outfit myself. I went and bought the material. The green bottom and chunni (shawl) is 100% green silk from a fabric store in NYC and the white is a stretchy fabric from a random store in my home town. I also bought the decorations separately and had the tailor sew everything on.

It was simple, but the cut out back added a little something extra.

And since it was so simple I wanted to spruce it up with jewelry. I looked online for back necklaces, but they were all so expensive β€” So I made my own!
I bought the pieces and put it together using pliers. Here is the final look!
