  Begumpuri tant handloom saree: Mayaz Boutique (Buy it here: Instagram,Β Facebook) Tribal Necklace:Β Preciousyou.in   There are days when i feel so much more motivated about life and the things i do on a daily basis, these are the days i finally take out my journal and write these long posts πŸ˜€ but look at the uncertainty of life, not all days are same, and not all days are good days either! Yesterday I felt little off, irritated and pretty much blah all the way around. I am not entirely sure why. I wanted to take a day off from everything & quietly let the day get over with no talking or anything. I had decided to finish this blog post…

How i styled my Nani’s (grandmother’s) 20 yrs old saree: Celebrating National Handloom Day !

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.

Watching my mumma with admiration as she got ready by draping her saree pleat by pleat, not so meticulously though (that’s also one thing i…
