Sari Yaar: Personal Fashion

Images By Anjali Bhargava

Sari/ Clutch: From Bombay; Skull Ring: Alexander McQueen; Shoes: Aldo; Peacock Feather Pin: Macy’s

I have been dying to do a post on a sari. Sari is the Indian traditional outfit for women. I would not wear it on a day to day basis due to plain practical issues like it will take me years of training to be able to drape one around me in less than 30 mins and even longer to train myself to run in a sari after trains and buses..hehe… yes it’s the truth about my life that I have finally made peace with: I am always running! And sadly it’s always after public transportation. ..lol..Hence I thought it would be apt to have these pics be taken in an NYC subway station.

Someday I wish to be able to go to work [in NYC] in a sari if I feel like it every once in a while. Mental Note: Have to find an employer cool enough…lol.. But why not I say. My wish right?

Since this sari is quite a formal piece with a lot of elaborate antique embroidery on it, I didn’t want to accessories it too much.  Just one cocktail ring and that’s it. FYI, this is never the case with actually Indian formal attire. We Indians believe in more is more and normally wear extravagant jewelry with such saris.

So just cause I have a twisted head, I decided to club my “Sati Savitri” – look [Good girl look] with a huge skull McQueen ring. BTW, I love this ring sooo much I want my engagement ring to be just this!!! Now all I need is to find a boy to marry me J

PS: This was one of the funnest shoots ever. The sari got way too much attention.

  43. I'm officially impressed, lady skull-bug! You look sexy. Sexy sexy sexy. Now I just wrote in one of posts that I'm not a skull person but this wants me to change.

    This is such a perfect putting together. 1, the saree is lovely. 2, the blouse is sexuous for its back (less). 3, you did it just right by minimal accessorizing. 4, the skull-bug ring adds fiery to a saree. 5, the mor-pankh, girl, how did you even get an idea as fabulous?! I love this. Oficially.

  44. Love the peacock feather pin! and the sari is gorgeous. I never got used to running around in them either, but I sure to love to wear em'.

    :)
