Mr. Mint's younger sister, my sister-in-law, is getting married in a couple of weeks. She is having a big, traditional Indian wedding. Three days worth of events, 300+ guests, five different outfits, 75 bangles and one chocolate fountain will add up to lots of great material for my blog. Even though I always feel like a fish out of water around his family, it's always a good time. If you really want to see what I mean, go rent Monsoon Wedding and picture a white girl with midwestern parents somehow stuck in the middle of it all.
Today, Lolly, Frostine and I accompanied my sister-in-law and mother-in-law to Little India (otherwise known as University Ave in Berkeley) for a little last minute wedding accessory shopping.
There was a little of this:
And a lot of this:
rack of saris
bangles, bangles and more bangles
I picked up these beauties that match all four of my wedding outfits.
I can't wait to wear them.
