I cannot buy Happiness, but I sure can buy Sarees and that’s kind of the same thing for me 😀
We know a lot of you out there won’t agree because you feel like Sarees are a lot of work. Trust me, they are not, when draped right (I use only 2 safety pins – one for the pallu and one for the pleats, that’s really all you need)! But I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that Sarees give you the best of both looks – Classy and Sexy!
I have come back with a LookBook, and this time yet again, in a Saree 🙂
With all the heat and humidity, I wanted to do a free spirited Cotton Saree look (A no-brainer from a handloom lover in summers. Ain’t it?!). Me being petite, I always prefer monochrome sarees (also because I love them) or sarees with small prints which aren’t overwhelming. This Crop top from Haute Curry ended up being a top, so I cut the lower half of it and transformed it into a blouse 🙂 And to give justice to the beautiful embroidery on it, I choose to wear a plain saree. Now, I did not have one that went with this blouse. So I sneak into my Mom’s closet (my second stop for sarees) and grab her beautiful pastel pink, super soft Cotton Saree that she purchased in Chennai. I had my eye on it from the day she got it 😉
So I do the basic draping and pair it with my most favorite Fizzy Goblet Juttis and use my bracelets as anklets because they fit me either ways and these are few of the many benefits of being dainty 😉
All I wanted, was to make this look Comfortable, Colorful and loads of Fun. Here you go, have a look of how I gave a simple cotton saree a spin of my own 🙂
