This wedding season, Luxemi was my perfect solution.
Kind friends have always given or lent me attire to wear to Indian events. Those sarees and lehengas were undoubtedly exquisite, but they weren’t always me. So when a dear Indian friend celebrated her wedding this month, I turned to Luxemi.com. I logged on to the site, used the simple search filters, and quickly found a stunning outfit to borrow – a black and beige zebra print saree, paired with a sequined halter-style blouse.
It was modern and funky, yet elegant and appropriate for the special occasion. The luxurious outfit arrived in a beautiful bag, with matching bindis and safety pins, and a sweet, personalized note.
An aunty helped me wrap my saree in the traditional Bengali style. I accessorized and further personalized the outfit with my own large, gold fan earrings and vintage Chanel purse.
The wedding itself was a distinct affair steeped with creative touches, such as the use of dazzling umbrellas during the baraat and a surprise performance by a marching band.
The festivities represented the couple’s energy and sense of adventure. And thanks to Luxemi, my outfit reflected my own personal style, ensuring pure sartorial splendor.
P.S.: The best part? I didn’t have to pack the outfit in my suitcase to carry back home! Luxemi sent me a pre-paid return shipping envelope, and handled all the dry-cleaning for me!
