Happy Durga Puja!
The festive season is here and I can’t keep my cool. It’s that time of the year where you have long holidays, travel plans or just hopping around the city. Just like last year, I am again here with a sari post but this time I chose the conventional way rather than my radical sari styling way.
I always wanted a typical Bengali white & red sari and I asked my very talented friend Anupriya, if she knew where I could find it. And she did! If you didn’t know, she is the mastermind and the designer behind Howrah Bridge by Adg. Howrah Bridge has everything that a typical girl needs and size has never been a bar for them. Don’t ask me how I missed on styling this sari last year! But back of my mind, I knew this sari was in a desperate need to be draped and I couldn’t find a better time than 2018 Durga Puja. I have gone past the need of getting a blouse stitched for the sari and instead just pair a contrast crop top with it. It’s comfortable and chic and the most important part is that it’s convenient too. You would have noticed the handmade neck piece in my earlier post also. Some stylists say if you have a statement earring, avoid a statement neck piece but I decided to go crazy here and paired both together. Of course, I couldn’t stop myself from finishing the entire look by adding a bright red bindi. It’s a must! For a change I used the bum bag has a wrist-let but I think the colour of the bag camouflaged with the sari.
Hunting for a location to shoot is the most difficult task ever as a blogger. I am highly grateful to the team of The Bohemian House for giving me this opportunity to use their beautiful space to shoot and it turned out way better than what we had expected it to look like. The best part about this shoot was the vintage car that was parked outside the cafe which added that vintage Bengali Raj Bari look.
Draping a sari is an art, believe it or not. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Anyone can drape it but only a few master it. Thank god nobody was around me when I draped this sari and came out to shoot, because only I know how difficult and flawed it was.
