Casual Anarkali

Anarkali ensemble in green from Biba

Last April I wrote about our visit to Bhaktapur, one of the towns of the Kathmandu valley that was damaged the most during the big 2015 earthquake . Last Saturday we visited the town again. Have to say that now it looks somewhat worse: many of the survived but too much damaged temples were demolished after all, reconstruction works are about to start and there are bricks and polls, sand and cement everywhere that creates a picture of chaos.

I wore a new anarkali dress ensemble from Biba for our little trip. In spite of being a casual variant of the dress it is nicely decorated with metallic thread embroidery (as well as the accompanying shawl) and the print combination is really lovely.

It is always fun to visit this town. In spite of being so much damaged by the quake it is full of life, beauty and energy.

As you can see winter is over here. And though it is slightly cool in evenings and mornings the days are sunny and warm enough.
