Plain Saree with floral Blouse ..

So it was my sons first birthday celebrations in the month of September, I ran pillar to post for a decent outfit (brands these days cater very less to a woman of my size was my realization) which was like a dream for me.

Finally, the man of the house & myself decided to tailor make my #ootd for the D day.

Got a skirt made & teamed it with a ready blouse.. now the skirt fabric tuned out extra & my tailor suggested he would try & make a blouse for me… I was more than happy…

Turned out I was more excited about my blouse than the skirt; I started telling mister that I want a Saree in this shade (pointing to the Colour as my man sees Green as Blue; at times Maroon as Purple… his colour palette & mine are two different syllabuses)

Hubster who was already irate with my match this, match that for my ootd (do visit my gram to see the pics from that day) saree adding on got him loosing his calm…

While this was settling down, a parcel came as a ‘surprise’ ! It contained a Saree, a blouse fabric, fabric bookmarks & a handwritten cute note from _h.o.m.e.b.o.u.n.d_!

Turned out the Saree was exactly the same colour that I pointed out to my husband. Twinkle Mathur (Founder of _h.o.m.e.b.o.u.n.d_) was very happy to send this saree along with other goodies as a goodwill for me supporting her brand initially.

Today she’s grown organically & has launched her website … do check her page for the amazing artsy curations she does. She is supporting 50+ artisans and 100% handmade products.

She asked me to drape this dual tone gorgeous drape for my special occasion; Sareeing is always special … what say…?!
Also, the universe conspires for what one truly wishes for … isn’t it !!

Wish I had only asked for something bigger when Mr.God was in the ‘asthu’ mode..!

Can’t Thank you enough Twinkle for the token of appreciation !
