Shiny Clothes & Grimey Walls

So, through many of my blog posts you've seen many different South Asian clothing styles... There's the sari, the different kinds of suits, Kurtas, etc.... But what I haven't introduced you to are the awesome outfits that South Asians put on their kids... I was at the Market the other day and was buying a few little clothing items for Aashini and the guy that I usually buy from told me he had something that I should get for her... He pulled out this outfit... It was super tack-fabulous (tacky) - and very sparkly... AND it was only $1 for the outfit, so I thought - haha! why not!? So I bought it... I want Aashini to fit in with the culture here, right? haha!! So here it is!!....
Oh yeah, it's awesome!
And, on another note... it's still raining here!!! It hasn't rained in a couple of days now, so i think we might be back to normal - but we've been having WAY more rain than normal!! Usually in May, we have 17 mm of rain... but this year we've had 164 mm!!!!!!!!!! Crazy! Anyway, when you live in a super dry area of the country (like we do) and then you get a lot more rain... well, there are consequences... Our walls for example:
They're actually worse than that now... and they're starting to stink.... So, as much as I hate to say this (and will hate myself later for saying this)... BRING ON THE SUN!! (I need to dry out my walls!!!) :)

WOW your wall got bad fast!! It was just a teeny speck of grime when we left. Have you been burning the clove oil like crazy? :)

On another note, YEA for Aashini's fun outfit! I must say, it photographs a LOT better than I know it looks in person. Get her some orange bangles and a bindi and she's good to go. Oh my goodness, I never thought of putting bindis on our girls until now. We've GOT to do it!

Bronie said...

Ok, so it is a tacky outfit, but it is fun!

Misty said...

I love the outfit. That is so stinkin cute. She just needs on of those dots on her forehead and she'll really fit in. he he he... Yipes! I hope your wall dries out really soon. I bet that does smell bad. Hopefully it will dry up some for you guys!

Barbara said...

Oh wow! I hope the sun comes out soon!!

Erin G said...

wow, that outfit IS a little much. But when she's five you'll look back at it with nostalgia and fond memories. YOUR red top, however, is absolutely gorgeous. I keep wondering if I can get away with something like that over my jeans here in NC. No one would see it, though, except Nathan. Now that I work from home I don't get out much. But yours is awesome!!

I was thinking the same thing as erin g. Love the red top you have! I'd totally wear that here. Wow, that wall is not in good shape! Hope there's no crazy Black Mold!

yeah, I'm allergic to mold, so we're keeping close tabs on our wall... we've been scrubbing it with bleach and so far it's not moldy - just ugly ;)
