I wore a sari to the Gala.
Sometimes I love wearing a sari when I know everyone else will be in a dress. Its different, its fancy enough and Im quite comfortable in it.
People are always curious on how its worn. Its basically one long piece of fabric. Once you get used to it, its not so bad.
In a way, it feels good to wear it, because its not only a piece of clothing for me, I'm showing a part of my culture and who I am. I'm not shy about that.
Receiving compliments such as, "You look like royalty" and "You look fabulous!" for a good portion of the night isnt so bad either. :)
