My Sari Fiesta - Festival Style



With Diwali (the Indian festival of lights) just a day behind us, I thought I’d post some pictures of the sari fest that I indulged in. For three days straight, I wore hand-woven saris for the parties and the festivities. And what could be better for a girl who loves her desi style and her treasure trove of saris ;-)!

I dug out this earth-colored #sari with a mustard border in thick, hand-woven cotton for the party that we attended a couple of days prior to #Diwali, and teamed it with hand-painted papier-mâché earrings, a stack of wooden bangles and a lime green mother-of-pearl pendant.







For the teen-patti (card party) just a day before D-Day, I wore a rich blue and red #ikkat sari, and styled it with a silver jewelry, and a round red #bindi.




And for Diwali, I pulled out a sari from my wedding trousseau. A rust and henna green #batik silk sari that my mother had gifted me almost 9 years ago. I wore a Dokra necklace with it and earrings made of wood.






What kind of saris do you like to wear for festivities?
