53 Week Journey through the Land of Drapes and Colors: Week #19

For details on all the sarees I have posted so far, go here.

A month or so ago while we all were still in the newly formed quarantine mode, we did a fun video with cousins from my dad side. Just girls, wearing beautiful sarees and grooving and moving to a song in the background. It was pure fun, made it feel like we all are together in-person, and at least took our mind off the crazy and scary world out there.

For this fun video I wore this orange Georgette saree with beads and thread work all through made partially by hand and partially by machine. The border on both sides of the saree is appliqued on to the saree, and also has beads and threadwork. It comes with a matching blouse.

This has been a gift by my younger sister-in-law some 12 years ago. I was surprised I still had it with me when I found it in my wardrobe. It still looked well on me. I paired it with red beads and silver with gold plated necklace and earrings, and matching bracelets on my hand, although they are not seen in the picture.

I love taking pics hanging with the tree branches. So this time when my friend came over to help me with the video and photography I asked her to do that pose. With the setting sun full on my face, the orange color of the saree actually looks burnished than it already is.
