And that's a wrap on my yellow saree pics. Pakka! Haha... Also, this was the last set of pics I had in a saree. Don't know how and when--and if--I'll get to drape one again. There's a looonnng list of fabrics I want to try: chiffon, georgette, crepe, net, silk, satin, Kaanjeevaram (😍), Benarasi (😍). There's the Kerala Kasavu with gajra and the sindoor khela look. Different types of blouses: boatneck, sleeveless, 3/4th sleeves, halter, a sequinned one 😍. Can go on and on!
While I've always been fond of dressing up, I was never really into ethnicwear. This changed when seven winters ago, my cousin put me in her beautiful, lavender anarkali and I was left mesmerised by not just how pretty it looked on me but also how pretty, and feminine, it made me feel. That flowing kurta, the net dupatta, the full sleeves of net, the soft chooridar... All that softness and delicate fabric engulfed me with femininity like never before.
Till then, it was only cotton, synthetic tees etc. From that to this, it was like I had been upgraded from a middle seat in the economy class to the indulgent business class. It was a paradigm shift for me. I was like, dress-up can feel thisss great! 😯
My cousin wanted to put me in a saree too but that couldn't happen as we didn't have much time but then every gal pal I shared this experience with hyped saree oh so much that I was intrigued. Haha... They said it makes you 'feel' beautiful like no other garment can. It makes you look and 'feel' so pretty that it's empowering, makes you feel confident about your look and thus all the more beautiful. It makes you feel feminine and sexy, they said. Was I hooked! And were they right! Oh boy! How I wish I'd get anot...
Whoa! Stop. I've been very fortunate that I had a couple of sporting friends who opened their wardrobe to me, hosted me and shared the best of their collection with me. And took such pretty pictures that I can't get enough of gushing about them! It might be over, one and done, but I'm glad that it was at least done! 😀
