Ethnic Saree look: Diwali lookbook

Hi girls. How was your Diwali. Mine was super fun at work and home. I went for total ethnic on Diwali. I wore sarees this festive season. So thought of sharing a quick post on my outfit pics.
At work I chose this beautiful bandhej saree with gorgeous kathiyawadi border. I bought this saree from jaipur. I like simple sarees with beautiful borders. You must have spotted pics of me in beautiful thick border simple sarees on instagram (same name Perkymegs). Most of my sarees are of Georgette material.

Bandhej is a traditional tie and die work of Rajasthan. There are beautiful color combinations that one can choose from. I particularly like black and red & orange and pink combination. Bandhej looks so beautiful. One can wear saree or suits of Bandhani fabric.

Kathiyawadi work is another traditional handwork. It is basically a beautiful mirror work from Gujarat with intricate thread details. The threads as I have observed are generally a combination of beige and red in colour. I just love Gujarati handworks. You must have spotted the beautiful Gujarat fabric work on Deepika’s outfits in the movie “Ram Leela”. As crazy as it may sound but I really want to learn the beautiful traditional Indian handworks like Kutchch work, phulkari, Gota patti, Kundan work etc. and aspire to create my own outfits with these works one day (I just hope to fulfil this dream someday).
Sorry guys if I got little carried away (haha just wanted to share my obsession with Indian handworks). So coming on the look again I paired this saree with multicolored kadas, Silver bindi (that’s my favourite), high bun, big bali earrings, daytime nude makeup, diamond rings and beige slip on footwear.

For puja at home I wore a maroon georgette saree with silver gota patti work. Gota patti is also a beautiful handwork from Rajasthan. Sorry for the poor quality pics of this saree look as my DSLR went out of battery so I clicked some pics with my mobile. (Sigh. I really wanted to share my makeup and look with you guys but
bad luck).
