Looks like my honeymoon period of blogging is over :-) and I already started to enjoy my blog pause. My antennas are up again with Divya of Soundhornplease suddenly asking me about the FashBash series and here I go.
I am a great Sari lover. I always wear a sari to any Norwegian private or corporate parties and that gives me the advantage of being easily seen and heard :-). So what did the just concluded fashion week offer us as an inspiration or ready to wear in Saris.
I am starting with Masaba - who is known to design from her heart (daughter of Neena gupta and Sir Vivian Richards). Her collections are cool and I am currently a big big fan of hers as she can keep one looking trendy and elegant without an iota of bling bling :-).
Inspired by her style I enhanced my wardrobe buying a few saris during my last trip to India and I am looking forward to flaunting them around :-). (They are mostly partly pallu sarees - the pleats and the pallu are different).
This one is my favorite - lovely Green, Grey Black and Red and I have to admit that I enjoyed the tons of compliments that poured my way at a recent party :-). The photo did not do 10% justice to the vibrancy of the green .
I bought some checked mulmul (very fine cotton) curtains in Norway and then used a couple of them in this sari :-). Isn’t that cool
And here with Pink – the color of 2011
Finally from the runway to my wardrobe (BTW – I am far far away from looking anything like this :-)). This is a beautiful sari with khadi cotton in the stripes and silk in pallu with block printed Ganesha's that I am sure I will treasure for long long time.
Did u notice the pocket in the saree? – It was very useful as I could push in all the visiting cards I got :-) plus my mobile.
and some hitting the boutiques.....
I think it is cool with the alphabets in different languages, A AA E EE - I could atleast see some Telugu ones there.
Talking about alphabets I am tempted to show you this one of mine with 'OM' in Zari weaved into a beautiful Uppada silk Saree (from Andhra Pradesh)
I could come only this far today . So I will have to take this in bits and pieces and the interest it generates :-)
