I've really been getting into Indian fashion lately. I adore the prints and the drapery of the saris and lehengas. My only problem is that I have no idea where to actually find it? I live in Massachusetts. Any suggestions are welcome. I hope you can help

I got to wear a sari once (to my hindi friend's formal birthday), it makes you feel so gorgeous and elegant...

This site has some gorgeously ornate- but very expensive ones.

Ahhhhhh! You're killing me, purple! I love them all, especially the red ones. I'm just dying to get one of those, but they're so expensive. Maybe I could rationalize getting one for prom next year or something... :evil: And you're right, we do seem to like a lot of the same stuff. I especially love the vintage dresses you posted!

Seriously, though, does anyone see anything cheaper? Much, much cheaper? :hopes: Or does anyone have ideas as to how I could incorporate my love of this style into more every-day outfits? The last would probably be the most useful/practical, probably.

Oh thankyou so much for all the great sites and especially the gorgeous pics!

I wish I had somewhere to wear one. Maybe just parts of it or just the fabric made into a skirt or something.

I have a question though...is it considered offensive to wear a sari if you're a blue eyed, blonde haired, pale skinned Irish/French/Native American girl for no special reason?? I wouldn't want to make anybody upset.

I don't believe saris are religious hollyslookingdry. I have spoken to several people from that background who seem to think that is more than alright. I wouldn't wear the bindi though, I think it has significance for Hindus.
Can anyone clear this up for us please?

Don't mind me. I'm just lusting after them. I seem to prefer the most expensive ones for some reason...
In terms of being slightly more practical, I'd just go down to your local Indian area, they should have some reasonably priced ones there. Also, the sites I found actually have some cheaper options. I was just looking at all the intricate wedding ones, which I think are gorgeous.
If you could afford it though, I think it would be amazing to wear one to your prom! I can almost guarentee that you will be the most uniquely dressed person there.
Strangely enough, I actually really wanted to wear a sari for my high school graduation. I ended up settingly on my 50's dress though. Still, I always have my graduation from university to look forward to...
(By the way, I am becoming increasingly convinced that you are my double!)
