Those of you who follow our personal accounts might know, we'd been away for a family wedding to Kanpur. Now weddings as we all would agree, are synonymous with fashion statements and since this was a 'family' wedding, we also didn't shy away from going a little extra at times with our accessories and make-up! In all honesty, we had the time of our lives putting together all our looks for each of the ceremonies.
Haldi calls for all things bright and yellow. My sister @mishti.and.meat chose a vibrant pure linen in mustard with silver zari, while I'm draped in a lime-hued linen moklin with hints of ghicha, both from our store.
Oxidized silver Afghans, wooden bangles and upcycled jewellery made of canvas cloth were our pick for accessories.
Since we already had a lot of haldi smeared on our faces, the make-up was kept light and simple.
Do comment below if you'd like us to share more of our looks from the wedding.😊
Please note: These sarees are not in stock currently.
And here we are with the third look in the series, the look for the wedding evening. However, these beautiful drapes aren't from Amrapali.🤗
The off-white and rani pink beauty on me, is a silk from South India, which had come as a part of my wedding trousseau from the in-laws. Finally after two years, I had the chance to drape it, making my mom-in-law gleaming with glee! 😁 My jewellery is a combo of antique gold and gold-plated temple jewellery which were all purchased during my wedding. The Lakshmi Pendant neckpiece is from @aadyaaoriginals and the antique chandbali is from @kalyanjewellers_official.
The sister @mishti.and.meat draped this beautiful silk in a deep shade of pink. It has the motif of a Tussar Benarasi, but it's not a Benarasi. It's an extremely light-weight silk picked up from a store in New Market, Kolkata.
Having gained confidence over my skill at the winged eye-liner, I did the same for my sister. And along with her, I had my hair tied up in a bun too, for a change! We got tiny cute white flowers as embellishment to the 'jooda'.
Well, that's about it. Do let us know in the comment section how you liked these looks!😊
P.S. Please do check out the bonus picture with my lovely family.
ever walked into a design college and wondered what makes everyone there so awesomely sartorial?
Because we study fashion, or design? that's scratching the surface. There's no 'learning' a sense of style. It's because self expression, instead of the male gaze (ahem: another way to say "conventional"), becomes our norm ✨
