This is really really bad. I have no issue with a little pinching space here and there, but having a tummy hang out like this is wrong. And the thing is that she could have draped the saree so that it doesn’t look out of place, instead she draped it so the saree follows the contours of the nonflattring part of her body.

She looks so gorgeous and sexy that the less than perfectly fitted blouse doesn’t bother me.

Love the lipstick colors and the drape to show of the back – this is why saree is such a sexy garment; it matches with your sexiness.

Wine consumption in India is rising; in fact I tried a couple of different Indian wines when I was there last. Wine has tremendous complexity, color, texture, taste, aroma combining together to make a drink that tickles not just your taste buds but your mind as well. I think it will flourish in India.

I am sure you have heard this joke about this French guy; he had a headache and his friend asked him “why don’t you take some aspirin” and the French guy says “I would, but I don’t know which wine goes well with Aspirin..”

In desi fashion, it would be interesting to ask “what wine goes well with this saree”, you want to make sure that the complex shade of the wine doesn’t interfere with your carefully selected saree.

Maahi singh looks very sexy in the rose pink saree and the rose she has in the goblets – a perfect accessory and I think it also adds to sultry and sexy look of Maahi as well.

Gorgeous, handmade gopi skirts/half sarees by Radhika are one of those ‘must-haves’ for traditional classic outfit lovers. Radhika is based in Laguna Beach, California, and a mother to five. At first, she started by making skirts for herself only. Eventually, she began creating more and more for her friends and her skirts are a big hit now in facebook.

“My designs are a fusion of the ancient and the modern. I like the depth and elegance of the “Old World,” but recreate it in a fashion forward way. I’m into conscious living, and try to reflect that in my designs. Most of my items are OOAK, and they’re all made from natural fabrics.” says Radhika in her ETSY profile.

I love her taste and the way she mix and match the colours. I can’t help but to fall in love with every single piece and its unique colour combinations. I added her in facebook few months ago, and it’s amazing to see how quickly her new designs get booked up! So don’t wait, go and check her out at https://www.facebook.com/GopiSkirts.
