Aaj Kya Pehnu? ( What should I wear today) is a question in everyone’s mind before going for a party or an event, whether its an official party, personal party, a family function or a small friendly get together.
We all get stuck with our limited choice of clothing . Everyone wants to be different at a party but ofcourse the most charming, demanded and hot in parties especially among the ladies.
We always spend so much of time, energy, efforts and money in choosing the right clothes but in the end get stuck up with either the fit or the styling.
