Saturday Snapshots: June 6, 2015

Continuing with my saree dates and other dates are inclusive too....

May 31, 2015


I bought this Mysore silk saree, only one in my collection till date, in Bangalore in 2003. It is easy to drape but I have not draped it much. Maybe twice. I bought that blouse from Nalli long time back. It goes with many of my sarees.

I draped it for a date of sorts and he was pleasantly surprised to see me in a saree.

Accessories, as usual, Pearl ear-drops! Very predictable, no?!

I chose this two dress concept. A kurti with a long skirt, and a stole. A hippi rastafarian kind of outfit. For someone who is pretty conservative, I seem to be going overboard....

Maa has stitched that skirt, it is totally umbrella cut. Georgette. Kurti is a gift from my SIL, Sujata Tripathy. Stole bought from Himachal Emporium. Very old. I wear it everywhere with my western attires.

BTW, I bought another stole from Fabindia....

Some of our friends are forever. And when they say, we must meet, one has to do that. Sarita Saxena, and I were colleagues from 1997 to 2008. A firm friendship formed between the two of us and we used to take leave from school to hangout with each other. At one time, she used to be only one possessing a credit card and we used to go shopping on the strength of that. I especially remember one such time. It was 31 March. Results had been declared. In those times, after declaration of result, students as well as teachers did not have to stay back for that day.

I, Kavita and Sarita went to a CTC sale. It used to be a big event at one time. None of us had much money in our pockets except for Sarita having a credit card. We shopped and shopped upto her credit limit. I bought four sarees and when I drape those, I remember that day vividly.

Today when I met her after two years, the years in between simply melted away. We shopped at Gurjari, Nalli and Khaadi Gramyodog Bhawan. We had lunch at Sarvana Bhawan and coffee at Cafe Coffee Day. In CP, New Delhi.
Now about the saree, this is a Odisha Sambalpuri cotton saree. I bought it in mid may, this year from the state emporium. Wore a plain dark blue contrast blouse.
The eardrops are from a local market.

I tried my best to persuade Sarita to drape a saree as well. Maybe next time.

Here is to more such outings and more such memories.....

How wonderful to have friendships that continue over the years. It's a delight to get together with friends that you haven't seen in a while and feel as if you immediately reconnect. Your saris are lovely -- gorgeous colors and fabrics.

Saree's look so lovely- the colours so gorgeous. (I always thought it was sari?) I'd love to wear one one day.
