The most treasured heirlooms are the sweet memories of our family that we pass down to our children❤️
Here my daughter is wearing her grandmother’s sari that is 46 years old! Seeing her treasure it as much I did when I was a teen makes me feel so proud of her!
I pre-pleated this sari for her so all she had to do was safety pin at the shoulder and at the corner and it stayed perfect while she did garba (traditional Indian dance) all night!
Chilly winter evenings and weddings are just right for silk sarees. The weather is beautiful in Mumbai and wearing these sarees is very comfortable in this time. It was the perfect time for me to bring out this saree bought in 2001, one of my earliest sarees.
I remember going to this weaving cluster with my mother and getting this orange saree. I also bought a blue one with all the pocket money that I had saved up!
This saree was woven between the borders of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Loved wearing it for a wedding today!z
And am back after being MIA for couple of weeks. Was a big day for me today. I am back in the corporate world. But this is me tonight, attending a cousin's wedding, wearing my my kinda outfit. Of course a saree. This one is a handloom from Dhaka. Sorry no full outfit pictures as I have been running around all the time. Jewelry being my choice of expression, I am very particular about what I buy. This real gold set has been my favorite ever since I got it made many years back. Incidentally, the carvings on the kada are so intricate, there are only a specific type of artisans who can make them to perfection and guess what!?, they hail from Bangladesh !! A single kada can take up to couple of months to make. I personally feel it's a brilliant work of art!! Swipe to see the details.
p.s. also love that I am wearing the color of the season 😎😊 #sareelove #sareepact #iwearhandloom #redsaree #shorthairdontcare #indianwedding #jewellery #accessories #sarinotsorry #100sareepact

Donned this deep orange silk chiffon bandhej bought from Jaipur over 15 years ago. It is light as air and drapes like a dream. Recently added gota patti border to it.
The blouse made of the same material was also made over with a row of gota circles on the sleeves.
Wore a gold chain and gold bangles as accessories. Changed my usual diamond earrings to square gold tops.
