Renting Indian Clothes with Almari Pret

One of the many beautiful things about Indian culture is the stunning clothing. ESPECIALLY for weddings. Indian outfits are so fun to wear but can break the bank. Sarees, Lehengas, Anarkalis, etc. don’t come cheap and honestly, they are not always my first priority when it comes to shopping since I don’t attend a huge amount of functions. For people who go to Indian events often, it makes sense to build a whole wardrobe but for someone like me who might attend 3-4 a year, I don’t find it practical to buy new outfits ever so often. That’s why I was so excited to hear about Almari Pret.

Welcome to the first installment of Small Shop Spotlight, today we’ll be getting to know the creator of Lady Burgundy!

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know and work with a number of indie brands and to bring this blog series to life makes me so happy!

Today is National Lipstick Day and I couldn’t have thought of a better brand to start off with than Lady Burgundy! Plus, they recently released some brand new liquid lipsticks, so I’ll be sharing some swatches of those as well!
