I was wondering how to make my blog interesting, and I thought why not showcase some glimpses of the rich cultural heritage of India.The first thing that came to my mind was to do a post in our traditional Ioutfit,
If you ask me 'What is a saree?', it will be an understatement to say that it is a nine-yard long strip of cloth draped over the female body in several different ways. Honestly, every saree is a work of art, a depiction of exquisite craftsmanship and intricate artistry and you will be amazed to know that most of them are hand-woven till date!
India is a country with 28 states and 8 union territories and, can you believe it, all these states have different languages, food habits , culture, even different forms of landscape and of course a few different types of sarees.No wonder, India is referred to as a country having 'Unity in Diversity'. There are multifarious types of sarees available today, right from the authentic, traditional ones to trendy, modern, designer versions.
This particular saree that I'm wearing is a more modern version. The fabric is a blend of cotton and silk and the detailing and the embroidery is done with jute and silk (resham) thread.
By the way, all the jewelry that I'm wearing today, all that is glittering, is indeed GOLD, for a change!
What I Am Wearing:
saree- from India clutch- from India
jewelry- 22K gold jewelry from India
Thanking You Yours fashionably
