For details on all the sarees I have posted so far, go here.
One of the bucket list, rather saree list, I had was to take photos with the background of Winter Wonderland. Finally my wish came true with the snow we had in December. Me and my friend, Sunita, did another photoshoot to capture the magic of white and fluffy snow.
I wore this handloom Banaras Organza (= Organza made in the city of Banaras, India) Bluish-Purple and Pink checks saree with Gold and Silver Zari motifs inlaid in the weaving; ending with a plain large pink bordered pallu (= part that goes over your shoulder and behind). I paired it with tailor-stitched thread and bead work blouse that came with the saree. I accessorized it with a long pearl necklace with gold pendant, and long hanging gold earrings; and color-coordinated bangles on my wrists. I bought this 6 years ago when I was visiting India.( Collapse )
