Shopping ...shopping and some more shopping...




The past weekends have been spent shopping since both my siblings are getting married next month...

Unlike many of my good friends, I am not very fond of shopping...but sometimes I do get roped in to go along with friends since they seem to think that I have good taste... especially when it comes to sarees.. 

I will let you in on my secret... I never pick a thing just so I have to wear something for an occasion... I always pick a saree only when I really like it ..and if I don't find one that fits the bill, I come off empty handed and wear something I already have.. Thankfully, this time I did not have to make do, and have got some lovely additions to my collection.

I am quite indifferent to salwar kameezes and that really shows..!!! there are some days when I feel positively dowdy in them ...

Anyway, while I was doing some window shopping in the beginning of my shopping spree, I clicked some pictures and thought I could share them with you.. though my taste runs to slightly less rich work than these.......how can one NOT like sarees???

  2. Those look lovely. In 2002 I was in Bangalore for my brother's wedding and had a great time shopping for sarees. Total waste of money since I wore it once and that was the end of my saree days. Living in the US it is not feasible running around in a saree:):) I love the saree though, what an elegant and regal costume, don't you think?

  3. I love saris so much. The colors, the patterns, the glamour. My brother brought us back some on his recent trip to India and I had a friend get me 2 that I use as valences on my windows in my study.

  9. Dear Swapna, Agree with you...sarees are something else altogether, though lately I have begun to think that they are an ideal formal dress rather than daily wear :).
