The Girl in yellow Saree

| Wedding Diary Part I |
Mehandi / Sangeet Look
She moves like a daffodil that sways with the wind.
Draped in the color of sun,
with the colors of rainbow in her ear,
Lips the color of deep red roses,
that grow on hills.
You can’t see her wings,
but she does fly
She flies to the candy coloured skies.
She reminds you of summer.
She reminds you of a cool breeze on a hot day,
She reminds you of the flowers that bloom,
She is the warmth of sun in winter,
Oh Lady, you feel like summer!

Indian weddings are love. What is there not to love? The decor is amazing, there is scrumptious food, everybody is decked up (so being decked up feels less awkward), people are dancing, some are gossiping and there’s fun, a lot of fun. Weddings make you feel like life is a party.
But days just before the wedding are super hectic. Deciding what to wear becomes a task in itself, how much would be too much? What to wear and what to avoid? The wedding season has just started so I thought of doing a wedding diaries that could help you out. This look is perfect for functions like Mehandi and Sangeet, which require a lot of dancing and wearing heavy can pose a problem. For this look, I wore my mom’s yellow saree, the material of the saree is chiffon which gives it a beautiful drape. I paired the yellow saree with a colorful embroidered rajasthani blouse that I thrifted from Janpath for INR 250 ( $3.8 approx). This blouse is a statement piece and looks amazing when paired with the right basics, so never shy away from buying a statement piece. I added vintage silver rings that I bought from Dastkaar Mela, Delhi Haat and a vintage tribal kada ( bangle) that I bought from Tribal Jewelry Fair. I added a few fresh flowers in my hair, you can always use flowers when gajra is not available.
Accessories can make or break the outfit so it’s really important to choose your accessories carefully. For this outfit, that accessory is the mirror and pom-pom banjara earrings from Krafted with Happiness. Also there is an another fashion hack that you can use, here I used my multi-colored bead earrings from krafted with happiness as tassels for my blouse.
Krafted with Happiness is a result of telephonic conversation between Parul and Anushri 3 years back, when they were still in college. Anushri makes yummilicious body scrubs and lip products and Parul is a master crafted, so after one fine telephonic conversation they decided to turn their passion into business. Well one of the most interesting things is that these two are trained architects. So did architecture help them in starting their brand? Parul excitedly tells me that it did. ” Studying 5 years of architecture involved so much of creativity and design and it wasn’t just restricted to buildings! The fundamental of all fields of designs are essentially the same, only the medium changes. In architecture its space and buildings and in fashion, it is textile”
Anushri and Parul have traveled to some of the most beautiful towns and villages of India, famous for their crafting skills and interacted with the artisans and craftsman there. Currently, they have 8 craftsmen working with them who make products for them, while these two design it. We as buyers just pay attention to the final product, while the making of each one, is a story of its own.
I love how my work allows to interact with such amazing people, if you would like me to feature you/your brand on my blog don’t hesitate to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
