A sweet pink cotton saree wid white chikankari work..d body is done with small white flowers and d borders n pallu are full of intricate work..paired it with my favourite pink teardrop crystal earrings..
My fascination for chikan sarees goes back to 1998-90 when my aunt used to live in Lucknow..she used to have this wonderful collection of chikan sarees or gift them to my mom..d butiful pastel shades, d intricate threadworks, d shadowy effects of d chikan motifs..all these would leave me mesmerized..way back then i was too young to wear sarees n so didnt feature in d list of people who would get chikan sarees as gifts..but my craving for a chikan saree continued..
Till a few years back..when my two friends Sudeshna Chakravorty n Averi Saha were going to Lucknow for a national conference..my old yearning came to d fore n i asked them to bring a chikan saree for me..they had asked me for colour preferences but i refused to limit their minds to any one colour as such..i trusted their aesthetic sense..a few days later this pretty saree was in my hands..
My all time favourite colour pink..d butiful white chikan work..d soft cotton fabric..how could i not fall in luv wid it!!
They had made d perfect choice..thnx dearies..?
I have worn this saree quite a few times before but am wearing it for 1st time for d pact..a suddenly planned meet at CCD, Golpark wiNabanita Senguptataa n sudeshna was a breather of sorts..n gave me a new place to get clicked too!
