A subtle Mekhela chadar with turns and twists


Mekhela Sadar

Silver Necklace

Wearing Mekhela Chadar (two pieces of traditional Assamese attire) has always been my pride and pleasure. Last weekend, in my State of Connecticut, we had a small Bihu celebration with Assamese families residing here. The best part of the celebration was the good Assamese food, a few heartfelt performances from little ones and adults, and reminiscing about good old times with friends and family after two years.

Pastel Mekhela Sadar

 As it was a post-Bihu celebration and a beautiful spring day, I wore a subtle Salmon color Mekhela Chadar and decided not to wear everything traditional but with some twists and turns. An Assamese outfit or Assamese design sensibility always comes with understated and elegant sensibility and is never over the top or flashy. This pair of mekhela chadar totally vouches for that sensibility. Subtle salmon pink color with eri motifs and designs and a hint of golden string (Guna), mina work (Enamel work). I teamed up with antique silver jewelry, and instead of a blouse, I wore a linen crop top with statement sleeves to stay afloat with the latest trend. As the whole outfit is subtle, I decided to wear a bit heavy on my lips, dark matte lips, and deep black kohl-rimmed eyes, which execute an old-world vibe, and a side messy bun with red roses, and for the finishing touches, added a beige pouch. Let me know what you think about this look.

  2. A countersink is conical, whereas a counterbore is cylindrical and usually larger in diameter than the hole’s bore. As we mentioned earlier, ending operations drive Electric Fireplace Inserts up CNC machining costs. The CNC machining processes typically produce passable as-machined floor finishes. However, the costs for 4-axis or 5-axis CNC machining vary from $25 to $30. Sometimes, it's higher because of the elevated tooling cost and complex operations of these multi-axis machines. Commercial CNC metalworking machines use closed-loop feedback controls for axis motion.

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying.

Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1.

You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
