There's a lot of inspiration and positive energy I draw from your blog. I've worn dresses like tops and skirts and spared a thought at 'what could be the five ways I could wear the same thing', something I take from several of your posts.
Today I want to share something that made me think of our mutual (!) love for sarees and finding the right kind of red lipstick which is for you. Needless to say, I rarely wore sarees to office- out of complacency really, and I never wore a red lipstick that was so bright. And then I decided create an occasion to do both.
I always found it quite intriguing that except in the state of Kerala (white saree with gold border, perhaps the replacement of the white gown), Indian wedding wear does not quite include the shades of white (not for the bride atleast). However, it fits my colour taste pallet quite well, especially with threaded-in gold, and those greens. So since I weren't the bride here, I decided to wear my cream with the-red-I-found lipstick. I wanted it to be really simple, so just paired very basic gold/cream glass bangles, and long earrings silver/ gold. Apologize for the picture quality- you have to excuse my packet with a bear who decided not to move. I liked how it turned out. Et tu?
Upasna, firstly I find it so weird communicating with you here, with our conversation open to the world. Thank you so much for such kind words, but you know that the admiration is mutual. I cannot wait for our next coffee date, and discuss the people sitting around us. :P About the look, I like how it turned out too. Side-swept hair, red lipstick and saree with a hint of green -très belle! I truly like the simplicity of the look. Less is more, more often that not (right?). And now that you mention it, I realize that I do not own a single white/creme saree, and after seeing you wear it so well, I kinda want one. Now! ... On next India trip for sure.
