British online fashion store ASOS was seen selling the following accessory on their website.
If you're South Asian, you know that it's a maang teeka. But the product preview caused a bit of a stir online, because it has been "naan-breaded". It's now a "faux pearl chandelier hair clip".
You read right. South Asian brides have been wearing a fucking "chandelier hair clip" on their weddings all along.
I thought I had seen peak caucasity when ghee was rediscovered by the west as "clarified butter".
And when haldi doodh became a life-changing, miraculous "golden milk".
But getting back to ASOS, I have a few business recommendations. Here's a "bejewelled reverse head thong" they can potentially sell.
And a "floral candy cane style braid wrap".
And here's a surefire bestseller: an "embellished nose-to-ear hoop".
Check out these lovely "chunky metal gold belts" too.
I personally cannot wait for my big day so I can don my billowing "intricate embroidery A-line skirt" and "jewel tone bedazzled crop top", and jhoomar— oh, I mean "gem encrusted forehead fascinator". Thanks, ASOS.
