@life_in_a_saree is giving away this gorgeous checkered saree and how can I not get in the queue for the sheer love of saree n her style !
So I am doing a #throwback post, back to 2014 Diwali.
Diwali is my favourite festival, not just because of lights and sweets,but because few of my closest folks always come back to my place on this day to celebrate the night. It has become a ritual. I am excited about it almost a month prior to it and I start making excel sheets for preparation. From selecting menu to finalising on what will I cook myself n what would my trusted Niru Didi cook.. top it up with how would I decorate the space, with flowers and lights to what would I wear.
I chose this stunning midnight blue silk from Pothy's, Chennai. That year I had gone on a soul searching solo trip to Chennai - Pondicherry - Goa - Pune - Mumbai. I bought almost 7 sarees from that store ! Teamed this gorgeous beauty with ivory silk blouse and lovely chandbalis ( borrowed from a friend ). This picture was clicked much after midnight, when everyone had food n were dancing centre stage on Hindi songs - Yes we shift from English to Hindi by the end of party. Something like shifting from David Guetta to Hawa hawa EY hawa from yesteryears , all between few drinks and hours.
Happy much ?
Oh , in case you too want the saree that I am talking about , do check out Rushika's page.
