This one’s for my love of saris and the typical South Indian style! We had a Pooja at home wherein we’d invited all our family and close friends and I thought it would be cool if we decided upon some theme.. I mean all of us would look uniform and it adds some josh to family get-togethers which are otherwise oh so boring! So we finalized on the South-Indian look as we are North Indians and it would be really exciting for us to try out something new. So I borrowed this sari from my mom which is a kancheepuram silk pattu and I love those appealing colors. I wore a gold blouse which looked smart and edgy along with the sari.
For the jewelry I chose to go with the authentic temple jewelry as it would do proper justice to my sari, A Ganesha pendant choker, and a coin necklace looked regal and aesthetic! I’ve always fancied the traditional gold belt that South Indian women wear around their waist during major occasions and festivals, it’s seen as a status symbol in their culture but I find it super stylish and so I decided to wear the Vaddanam. An Armlet is an absolute necessity when it comes in Indian accessories and looks classy as well, there are variety of Armlets available to choose from. The one I am wearing is an authentic gold baajuband. Ceremonies & festivals are never complete without flowers, be it indian or western! And when it comes to us, we use flowers to decorate the house, cars, temples and also ourselves 😉 The Gajra is an ornament women wear to decorate their hair bun and braid coiling. It also smells wonderful as it is made of jasmine flowers which have a lovely fragrance and it made me look classic and timeless.
That’s it for now,Let me know your thoughts on this!
Stay tuned for more!
