You know that if you tried to put the pallu on top of the blouse of this type, it will not work.
So this blouse over the pallu, or the pallu tucked in the blouse has a different vibe to it. Pallu doesn’t feel like “tucked” in the blouse.
But surprisingly, this combination is not bad. Casual sophistication.

Some might say it is gimmicky.. which it is..
Some might say that it is just a dress with a pallu attached… which it is..
Some might say that it looks like an afterthought and it is not integrated…. which it is..
But when you saw this, did you not do a double take?

Another pretty saree image from around 1930, and what I like best is the colour combination of red and deep maroon. Being completely tinted, I can’t decide if this was produced as a black and white portrait photograph or something more. It has a commercial look to it that is compelling, as if we are to admire the woman seated in a pretend garden setting, and buy whatever she tells us to. I also really like the “manly” chair in which she is sitting, barely filling half the seat. The golden edging on her saree and blouse is understated but incredibly rich, the jewellery minimal and thoroughly feminine. I want to be this lovely woman, wherever she was and whoever she was!

This video from New York based band the Harmonica Lewinskies (love that name) sees our hero’s trying to publicise their latest gig at a subway station when a girl in a saree passes by. One of the band members hands her a flyer for the gig but the big question is, does she go? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. Very cute video, I even quite like the song.
Money can’t buy love, but it can buy Lipstick!
And even more importantly, every woman should know this:
This is so incongruent; it is not a fashion piece, but a saree for general wear and it is kind of odd to see it in a metro train.
I don’t have a good reason to say that is “wrong” in any way. I am not even concerned about the trademark laws – one doesn’t confuse this as a saree made by facebook. Although it could be a trademark dilution, but I digress, this is a fashion blog not a legal freshman class.
