The Exquisite Benarasi

Happy Independence Day India!! And very Shubh Janmashtami!! A very happy birthday to Lord Krishna!!

The Indian festive season has begun and we will have one festival after another in coming months.

For me, as I am living outside India, festival means spending and being there with my family, to be able to speak to them, eating delicious food,  and wearing beautiful clothes.

This silk saree definitely brings a lot of happiness and triggers the festive mood. This one is a recent buy, chosen and sent by my mother from Varanasi. I always wanted a silk saree in off-white/ golden color as it just initiates your Benarasi saree collection and this one definitely ends that search. This weaving is known as Jamavar ( completely woven into the silk fabric with no loose threads on the other side).

I have always loved the idea of flowers, especially roses in the hair, my epitome of beauty is someone wearing  a gorgeous handloom saree with pearls/kundan and roses in the hair- uff, I cannot ever stop repeating myself ;-). So this styling had to be included in my blog. I know, I don’t know how to drape a saree as effortlessly as my mother or my aunts would do and I am also not a natural in carrying roses in my hair, but I loved every moment of getting ready. I could not find a perfect necklace that wouldgo with this saree, so chose to skip it,guess what, now that hunt begins too 😉

Until next time
