craftsvilla sari review
Some coffee please!

I can count the number of times I have worn a sari in my life which basically means it’s restricted to a mere small number. I have shied away from wearing it to functions, gatherings, dinners, work or any other occasion. I was never comfortable nor the idea of wearing it excited me. But then came a twist! I was thrown a challenge by Craftsvilla and they wanted to see me in a sari. I told them that I have never done a post in sari and they gave me exactly the same reason to do it now. Well, they won and eventually so did I. And my love affair with a sari began.

Oh, this drape has my heart and personal edge to it.

I chose a sari from their long list of beautiful and affordable nine yards. My criteria:

  • Comfortable so that I can wear it for longer hours without cribbing.
  • Work wear and fabulous!
  • Colourful so that it can uplift my mood every time.
  • Flowy fabric that hugs me and accentuates the curves.

I chose a multicolour georgette lacework sari that was a hit at first sight. It’s affordable, sassy and has a story of its own. Such was the pleasure of receiving it that I was at my boutique the next day for getting the blouse stitched. My brief: the blouse has to be not the quintessential design but more like a top that can be worn later with a skirt or over a loose pant. The guy did a fab job and I got what I wanted. Two days later, I was at the circles of Connaught place, heart of Delhi and rolling inside my colourful drape. I walked and walked, had a takeaway coffee with a friend and spent a beautiful evening gazing at the bright sky coupled with beautiful colours on myself. At the end, it was worth it and I realised that after all, sari can be a trustworthy partner. You just need a nice print, comfortable drape and an intent.

You can buy this sari here.

My two words of wisdom:

  • Sari is for everyone irrespective of shape, height, size or colour. It accentuates at the right places and hides at the required places.
  • You can wear it to work with as much ease as to a function. It will enhance your confidence if you are upto it.
  • Give a spin to your workwear by adding these nine yards to it. There is a different fun in swirling around in a sari and it’s a pleasant break from your regular pants, skirts and kurtas.
  • Even if you are sceptic, make a start. Get one and experiment. Most likely you’ll add more!
  • Have fun with the blouse style and drape. Don’t wear the regular style blouses. Make your own style for there is so much to explore. Drape it your way and make your own mark. Sari loves back any which ways!
