6/100. Red flowers on a black background. There! I’ve said it. That’s my secret vice when it comes to clothes . Which is very strange indeed considering that my choices usually run to earthy brights.
This black crepe saree with ‘painterly’ flowers is one of these ‘aberrations’. One that my tailor loved so much that he reproduced the design on the blouse, hand-embroidered it. And then, refused to take a single rupee extra saying, “Itna ‘glamras’ saree didi aapne kharida man khush ho gaya!”
My son seemed equally smitten by this saree and wanted me to wear it to a dinner invitation tonight. And he, wanted to be photographed with me as well. So, now, I have more reason to love this saree.
