I haven’t posted in so many months! Things have been crazy all spring and now it’s summer. Obviously, I need a new way to de-stress, and reading on that garish lino floor in my green silk sari should do it. Must remember to wear a gold necklace and earring set to highlight my shiny hair and great cleavage.
The ad came out nearly 40 years ago, and while the room décor is dreadful, the ultra simple sari with a contrasting blouse still looks wonderful – more proof that good taste is timeless. Sarees are undoubtedly the most perfect fashion ever devised!

Love the idea of Sari 24/7.
Amazon India Fashion Week’s upcoming season, autumn/winter 2017, brings the perfect platform to host Vogue‘s ‘Sari 24/7’, a collection featuring different versions of the nine-yard favourite by 50 of India’s most prolific labels including Manish Malhotra, Raw Mango, Abraham & Thakore, Rahul Mishra, Suneet Varma, Bodice, Huemn, Rara Avis, Payal Singhal, Anita Dongre, Nikasha, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and Kallol Datta. The aim of the runway show: to showcase the staple in all its avatars, and spotlighting its versatility. You’ll see unique drapes, handloom weaves, party-ready versions and cool-girl casuals too.
I am looking forward to seeing these pieces in more detail.
