4/100 – I wore this purple khadi silk saree with batik prints to work today. It is my most reliable saree and I am never going to part with it because it was the first saree I bought for myself.

I was on my first ever trip abroad – to India when Meena, a friend of mine introduced me to khadi silk and I went a little crazy trying on sarees of all colors of the rainbow at a store, finally settling on purple. This saree is full of memories – paying for that airline ticket to go on a trip alone, landing in Delhi airport in the evening and pinching myself on the ride to a friend’s place thinking – hmm this is what freedom feels like.
