Believe it or not, but August has been all about sarees for me, from talking about the revival of silk sarees to attending a couple of weddings wearing one! Also that now I am getting married I have been on a shopping spree to add more of these in my trousseau.
So when I heard about Craftsvilla‘s #MySareeMyStory campaign and the whole idea behind it I knew I had to be a part of it.
I have always been very vocal about my love for sarees! And despite being extremely skinny nothing has ever deterred me from trying out different fabrics. While I chose a Kanjeevaram Silk saree for my last post, here I am seen wearing this beautiful fuchsia pink Patola Silk saree from Craftsvilla.
This fabric is thicker but I made sure I style it in a way that it compliments my body type. And to make this post is little different from the others I decided to change few elements here and there to create four looks out of one.
So for the first look, I decided to go simple, keeping saree as the ‘interest’ point. Added a chunky oxidised silver neckpiece.
Moving next, wherein I added these gorgeous peacock ear-cuffs to the previous look. Elevated the outfit with these grey mules. Silver jewellery over a saree or any other ethnic wear is definitely a must try this wedding season.
For the third part, I removed the neckpiece and added a belt, which gave a very modern vibe to the attire. You can easily pull this look off to a Mehendi or a Sangeet. Dance your heart out and you won’t have to worry about handling your saree, as the belt would do the needful!
Lastly, I don’t see many women sporting spectacles with a saree, so I thought why not. At the end of the day it’s about wearing what you want, the way you like & not how others expect you do! Keep the fuss of putting on the lenses at bay & head out with ze nerdy glasses on.

I hope you liked the post because I absolutely loved conceptualising and shooting this. It feels great when brands allow you to put your vibe, and style the garment the way you want!
Until next time
Much love :*
