My 100 saree pact began with this saree because it was chosen by my son and his girl friend when they were traveling in India one summer, a couple of years ago. Lots of phone calls going back and forth between us, me here in Pittsburgh and they in Aurangabad, India. My first Himroo, it’s understated yet holds up for the entire evening slowly overshadowing all the other bright and shiny ones. I paired it with my favorite silver choker that I had bought years and years ago in Bangalore, it pulls the silvery hues of the thread work so well.
