As they say, every saree has its own story. The story of this saree takes me a few years back in the initial stage of building a saree wardrobe. Yes, this saree is from the southern part of India and it is called Pochampally saree which a kind of Indian weaving technique and of course this my first Pochampally saree. Dark purple in color and a dusty green border with a paisley motif and just above the border deer facing each other, this makes the saree really interesting. The achaal has a multicolor diamond shape motif that gives saree a good pop of color.
The saree comes with a blue blouse but I decided to ditch the blouse and use a parrot green blouse instead, I believe this gives the look more flare and fluidity. I was very easy on hair and make up natural -neutral. I added a multicolored and multi-layered fabric necklace for a more contemporary look. Do let me know how you like this modern Indian festive look.
