On Monday a new year (2071 by the way) started here in Nepal according to the local calendar. On the Eve we went to celebrate to a Rana-era-inspired restaurant famous for its unique interior and delicious traditional food. For such a place I wanted to wear something ethnic. And chose these red Patiala pants that you're already seen (here) and a new kurta-vest set from Biba. When I saw it in their boutique, instantly I liked the vibrant purple colour of the kurta but the vest turned out to be simply irresistible for me.
I also love the details that the kurta and the vest are decorated with: cute buttons and metallic leaves. The silver Nepalese coin in the ring dates from 1934.
Actually in this outfit I looked more like a Punjabi lady not a Nepali. But whatever
The restaurant we went to is called Baithak and is situated in the building that used to be the horse stable of the Rana palace. Stepping inside was like travelling back in time to the 19th century, the beginning of Nepal’s Rana rule. The walls of the restaurant are lined with oil paintings of the Rana family, in another room there are numerous photographs of the members of the clan.
During dinner traditional dances are performed.
