I have seen some absolutely wonderful formal Saree's on my cruises as well as formal occasions at work. I hope you get everything in time. I would love to see pictures.
I bought a Salwaar Kamezz on Ebay that I can use on shore. Its very pretty but not formal pretty. The Saree I bought, I actally got at a thrift store. I could not belive the quality. Its a dark dark blue with a goldish trim. I have to learn how to properly tie it too! I have been watching video's on Youtube to learn. I have friends who live in Pakistan and they are getting me the Choli and pettycoat. And I will post photos when I return!
I haircut in Fremont California there are large Pakistan and Indian commuities there. They have the best Fabric stores. I loved to go in an buy stuff. I did look at Sarees on the internet and also Asian dresses. I like stuff that is interesting beautiful and has a history and culture behind it. My Mom's family comes from the big island of Hawaii. That is what made me good for Hawaiian inspired dresses.
