A vintage Benarasi silk georgette from my Mom’s closet which is atleast 40 years old and a vintage inspired contemporary bracelet cuff, a recent travel find from Istanbul.
.
The cuff, which combines strands of agate with hand carved gold plated brass and simulated rubies and emerald is the handiwork of a Turkish designer who specialises in creating jewellery inspired by ancient Anatolian civilisations for period films and stage shows.
.
The deep carnelian red sari with the most gorgeous butis and borders is one of the beauties from my Mom’s fragile saree pile that she handles with great care. And when I took this one out for a spin today, it’s first in decades most likely, was amazed by how well she has preserved it!

And after seeing this, those incessant instructions from the wedding photographer telling us where to place our hands and how much to tilt our heads was worth enduring it seems. 😬 ~ #reluctantposers

In which a vintage preloved Benarasi Katan met a traditional South Indian ‘daabu’ (waist belt) that is probably older than me!

This has got to be the heaviest saree I have worn to date but boy am I glad I went with that crop tee and those comfy mules ‘cos I could even have danced the night away in this.😀

As the wedding festivities continue over the weekend, what I wore today for the bride’s ‘Aiburobhath’ ended up being quite a mashup of some very unlikely pieces thanks to a last minute 🙄 ironing incident! I have to confess this one took even me by surprise. 😁 But then again the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts.
