Blue, Green and Gold

It was my cousin's wedding yesterday and This was what I wore to the event. I love saris and for those of you who follow me on Instagram, I'm sure you know how fond I am about ethnic wear.

I usually pleat and pin up the sari at my shoulder. This is only because I hate leaving it loose. It's so much harder to handle and makes me very fidget-y.But if you're wearing a see through tulle sari , I suggest leaving the sari loose and only pinning one side of the border near the shoulder. I've also started hating short sleeved blouses. It's either 3/4 sleeved blouses or sleeveless for me. Oh and the back has got to be deep. There's an art of looking subtly sexy in a sari and we Indians do it extremely well.

On another note, If you're wondering about my blouse, I got it designed myself. I never use the blouse piece that actually comes with the sari. But in this case, I used the blue brocade as lining and got embellished green tulle fabric from a shop and fused them together to create a color in-between. I didn't want to go with the cliched one color blouse hence, my own creation.
