Saree Wearing

The day and time were fixed. So yesterday morning, I was already at my customer/friend's place. She had already worn her saree ready. When I entered her house, it was cool as the AC was on. Great! Otherwise I would definitely sweat due to my excitement.

She took me to her room which was also air-conditioned. How nice of her! She asked me to choose the color and immediately I chose orange/purple set. Both colors are my favorite colors!

I quickly wore the blouse and the skirt.


Then she started to tie the saree for me. Very professional and quick too..


It's done!

Then she wore the ear-rings, necklace and pottu for me.


Last but not least, the delicate bangles!



We hurried downstairs as her daughter must be bored waiting for us. She was our photographer.

My kind friend added final touch to the decorative area..

Photography session started..
More photos at my facebook..

Next, I was challenged by my friend to go to my shop and surprise everyone there. I was hesitating but she gave me a stern order, "Go!"

So we went. She entered my shop first and everyone was surprised!

I stood at the counter and kept saying "Vanakam" to my customers. They were so happy to see me in Indian costume.

It was indeed a fun day. I stayed for some time before I returned the saree to my sweet friend.

It's such a memorable day!

Thank you my dearest friend for giving me this golden opportunity!

  6. My! You look stunning in saree! I prefer to wear Punjabi suits 'salwar kameez' as it is more comfortable.
