Hey Peeps! Happy Panchami to you and the family. How is Durga Pujo going so far? I have been working, going for shoots and then Dandiya nights. Yes, it’s hectic but fun.
I have bought a melange of outfits for this festive season which includes western, ethnic and Indo western. I could not resist myself from wearing this beautiful half saree for dandiya last night.
For the years I have been in Bangalore, half sarees have always grabbed my attention. In North India, we call it lehnga itself. The difference between half saree and lehnga is barely discernable over there.
Getting in touch with Jay & Binita
Before I start blabbering on the details of my look and outfit, I would give a short introduction of the designers Jay & Binita. They are the ones who had designed my wedding lehenga.
Though Jay & Binita are based in New Delhi and I stay in Bangalore, the coordination was glitch-free and I got my dream wedding lehnga designed by them.
At times, I used to get furious as I was not able to see the progress and feel it. They usually don’t show the products unless the end product has materialised.
But for me, they designed the lehenga skirt and sent the picture and then they moved to Chunari and blouse design – exactly how I wanted it to be. I got more than what I was expecting.
The half saree feel
A Malayali lady had ordered this half saree a few months back from Jay and Binita. I was scrolling my Instagram feed and I bumped into this half saree. Promptly I contacted them asking for same with little changes as I love customised outfits. They have added stones in my half saree as I wanted it that way.
Dupatta of the half saree is 3 and a half meter long so it gives me the privilege to style it in lots of ways. Oversized pearls add a touch of flourish over the border of dupatta and blouse. They look like buttons and are marvellous.
The lehnga Skirt
I have not gone for longer length as Wanted it for festival and dance mainly and I shall not be able to carry them if the length is more. The mountain style golden border is contrasting well with the off-white skirt.
This well-executed concept looks so perfect. I can wear this lightweight half saree on a variety of occasions. If you know me, I love to mix and match. I am sure I can club skirt, blouse and dupatta separately with many more outfits.
