Feeling traditional



By  Ayantika     4:04 PM    Labels:,, 

Yes, at last my first saree outfit post :)
In last week, I was going for an Indian birthday party and wanted to wear a complete Indian traditional outfit. And this is the end result !(:

A(a.k.a my boyfriend a.k.a. my bestfriend a.k.a. my husband) gifted me this bomkai saree before our marriage. #those good old days.... I miss those days#.But, this was the first time I wore this saree and kept it simple with only golden bangle and ear-ring !


For, all my non Indian fellow bloggers / readers,

A sari or saree is a strip of unstitched cloth, worn by females, ranging from four to nine yards in length that is draped over the body in various styles. It is popular in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Burma, Malaysia, and Singapore. The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff.

The sari is usually worn over a petticoat (लहंगा lahaṅgā or "lehenga" in the north, langa/pavada/pavadai in the south, chaniyo,parkar,ghaghra,ghagaro in the west, and shaya in eastern India), with a blouse known as a choli or ravika forming the upper garment. The blouse has short sleeves and a low neck and is usually cropped at the midriff, and as such is particularly well-suited for wear in the sultry South Asian summers. Cholis may be backless or of a halter neck style. These are usually more dressy with plenty of embellishments such as mirrors or embroidery, and may be worn on special occasions. Women in the armed forces, when wearing a sari uniform, don a short-sleeved shirt tucked in at the waist. The sari developed as a garment of its own in both South andNorth India at around the same time, and is in popular culture an epitome of Indian culture.The sari signified the grace of Indian women adequately displaying the curves at the right places. (Souce wikipedia)

Neon Blue and Olive Bomkai Saree - gifted by A (from Puri, India) . Blouse - Tailored (designed by me).

Clutch : Gifted by Ma (Mom)-( from India), Accessories : Gifted by Aunt(from India) . Heels : Gifted by Ma (Mom) -(from India)

And, to me, the perfect matching accessories for my saree is not the jewelry, but smile. (:






Much Love ,
