Utsav Saree

I was not a huge fan of shopping online in my opinion shopping is an experience that satisfies not just the need for dressing oneself for an occasion but really your creative soul too. Therefore ordering this saree online was a very tough decision, any how I needed something for a family wedding in India and…

White Sharara

So I found this nice off white net and lace fabric at Joann Fabrics; I am quite certain it is for a wedding dress. Well I loved the fabric a lot it was beautiful and wanted to use it one way or other, so decided to find a tailor who could stitch me a simple…

Paithani Saree

If you ever get a chance to go to Nasik or Siridi you should make it a point to take a day trip to Yeola village/city it is about 100Km from both these places. Yeola is a major weaving center of the Shalu, Paithani silk and Pitambari saree. I picked this saree from Nasik but regret not taking a day trip…

Saree

White Lehenga

I found this really nice sequin fabric online on fabrics.com it was bit expensive especially because I like things at bargain prices and then modify it to look the way I like… but went ahead and bought this one because of its quality. The lehenga came out really well… this fabric had lot of scope…

Few years ago my sister and I wanted to explore Chandni Chawk… we have been living in Delhi for almost 25 years went to college, got married, had kids and not even once did we go and shop at Chandni Chawk! so we decided in 2013 that we will go buy some lehengas… really I…

Soft Cotton Angrakha

I found this really nice and soft angrakha at Cottons, Greater Kailash next to Fab India, Delhi and it is one of those full length and width suit the makers left no details…plus its sooo light and thin fabric it keeps you cool even in really hot weather.

Multi-color Leheriya

  I bought a plain leheriya saree from Jaipur; I had seen leheriya in the past but all double tone this is the first time I saw something with so many  beautiful colors…when I reached home I bought this shiny gotta and added it to the saree. Now depending on the occasion I either wear it with…
