When cotton feels like silk

Monday wardrobe –

The day was calling for this sari, i think. That, and my love for the color and the style of sari in general. This sari is like one of those delicious desserts that you can almost taste , just looking at them. I could imagine the feel and the colors that would go so perfectly with certain pieces of jewelry from my collection.

Wearing it, I can truthfully say it is everything I’d thought it was, who says appearances are ‘always’ deceptive? The sari’s drape is perfect and feels deliriously like silk, though it is  organic cotton. The borders are woven, and beige colored. Simple as it is, it delights me to wear something as beautiful as this particular sari, just like many of my other clothes. It almost feels as though this reflected on my day! A session that went wonderfully, a client from jammu-kashmir, even! A few delightful moments when I realize that people have traveled far and long to come for my makeover  sessions, not to mention the variety of other things that they must have had to take care of!

I strongly believe that clothes can impact your day is so many different ways, feeling confident and comfortable just seems to push everything in the right direction, somehow. Not just clothes, even the small things matter, like the tiny moonstone that glinted on my finger, the silver  bangle on my hand and of course the antique hair pin in silver , that held my carefully mussed curls in place during my hectic day.

Ridiculous as it sounds, I am absolutely sure that it was my sari that held my day together, making it bright and beautiful, till the clouds set in, dulling the harsh sun, and cooling the air. strangely, they looked the same shade of grey as my antique pieces…
