Summer Hafla

  Wednesday was the summer hafla! My dance teacher, fellow students and our guests went and danced for a couple hours. We enjoyed good food, some performances, vendor tables and henna! 

  It was actually my first performance dancing ever! I was nervous but it went well and was actually a lot of fun. My beautiful teacher has been practicing with a sword and performed with it for the first time! She did very well. We also had some guest belly dancers perform. One of them was pregnant and her little belly was adorable. I'm sure baby was enjoying those shimmies! 

   Here are a few pictures for you to see what I wore! Maybe I'm paranoid but I don't think it's right to put pictures up of people without asking so it's only pictures of me here. 

My outfit:

  • Burgundy Skirt underneath
  • Olive Jaipur skirt in a mullet-esque tuck job so you could see the burgundy skirt
  • Long purple fringe
  • Tassels with cowrie belt
  • Black choli
  • My new coin bra
  • Headband with guls made by yours truly
  • Bindi from Kuhl Jewels
  • Flowers, bangles, necklace, earrings
