PLEASE SWIPE AND SEE ALL THE PICS
A sari worn exactly after one year. #irepeatmysarees I wore it to the pre wedding mehndi on 17.4.18 of @auditi.dey best friend of @mallikadua. This year on 18.4.19 I wore it to a dear couple’s daughter Arusha’s mehndi.
My #ootd was a very bright, light, easy drape #silkkota with #missingchecks .Those who regularly read my posts, by now, are aware that I am quite adept at refurbishing, recycling and also #transformingturbansintosarees . This #silk #saree too is an erstwhile turban, which all the men from the groom’s side including Vinod wore last year at a dear couple’s son’s wedding in Jaipur.The moment my eyes fell on the turban, I was delighted and my plans of conversion started. Fortunately it was extra long and the width was more than enough.So I got it dry cleaned to be sure it’s colours won’t bleed.Thereafter,I got the length needed for a blouse, cut off from it, got the fall and hem done.It has strips of reddish orange,fuschia, pink, vibrant cobalt blue and yellow separated by strips of gold, all over. So to use this turban as a sari was no rocket science.
It has multiple options of pairing. Last year I paired it with my orange brocade blouse which has round woven gold motifs. This year I wore it with a cobalt blue with fuschia & yellow #tieanddye #silk #stoleconvertedintoablouse from Udaipur.
I wore #goldwithruby jewellery.
My #potli is an offwhite with golden sequins all over and a horizontal strip of orange with #handembroidered #weddingscene from @bespoke_ozels .
The #handcraftedbindi is inspired by the parallel strips of various colours on the sari and is created into parallel lines using fuschia poster colour & navy blue water colour with a yellow dot below.
