Wearing all things handcrafted: Cotton/ Crop top blouse from: Jaypore Saree: Nani’s closet Tribal Hasli necklace: Bombay Bead   My grandmother’s (nani’s) closet has been a constant source of inspiration when it comes to handloom. Her collection offers sarees dating back to almost 20-30 years or may be later šŸ™‚ (I am yet to explore that).

Wearing all things handcrafted: Cotton Saree: Suta Bombay (www.suta.in) Crop top/ Blouse: Chidiyaa ( www.chidiyaa.com) Afghan Earrings :The VelvetBox by Latika Grover   Last post of this month, I can’t even express how happy i am while i write this one, wondering what took me so long to share #mysareestory with you all, having a great adoration for them since my teenage years.

Dress: Zara Sneakers: Adidas (Buy here, here, here) Sunglasses: Sunglass LA (Buy here) The day i stepped out from my house leaving all the comforts and luxuries a home and a beloved family provides, was the day when my life was actually started. I remember the feeling i had the very first day, super scared, super anxious, stomach growling with fear & no food inside, emotions overflowing all over and what not. Throughout the time i was traveling to my destination, i wasn’t sure what i am doing or where i am going with my life with 2 huge fully loaded suitcases that i wasn’t too strong to carry that day. There were sleepless nights, painful mornings, anxiety attacks before…
