The six yard unstitched fabric looks elegant and sensual when draped on a lady.

An Indian saree has undergone the test of time. But, there’s a flattering twist to the modern era saree. With sarees becoming more contemporary, quirky and lighter, we no longer see the quintessential plain saree with an attractive border. Designers are experimenting with prints and vibrant colors. We love Yogesh Chaudhary’s Pacman print and Masaba Gupta’s shutterbug chic and lipstick blot print.Apart from the six yards, designers are opting for jackets and knitted tops instead of the prototypical blouse.

But, today is not a quirky day! It’s the wedding season and the quintessential saree works wonders! Consequently, I almost received a marriage proposal! Being a modern woman, this very saree helped me transit between the contemporary and ethnic society.

Since, the saree was simple, I chose to do a smokey eye effect with a winged eye liner and red lips(which has worn out due to the amount of food and drinks).

I kept the accessories to a minimal by wearing two gold kada’s and a gold jhumka.

Do you love to wear bizarre accessories?

At Citizenkay, we believe Bizarre is Beautiful… So when Kay visited a store in Bandra.. she couldn’t resist but try every accessory over there until she saw something really unique… It was a necklace made up of hairpins! Hairpins could be a part of her daily hair-do’s that she uses every single day.. Kay wondered how someone could incorporate hairpin’s in a necklace.. She pulled out the necklace from the rack to see the price label. She couldn’t afford it.. but she still kept lusting for it..

Every time she visited that store, she couldn’t get her eyes of that necklace, she thought to herself, “A hairpin necklace? Even I can make it.I will definitely make it!” She observed every centimeter of the necklace to see how it was made and then rushed home with a grin.  Upon reaching home, she explored every nook and corner of her house to gather hairpins.. And then finally sat down to make something she wanted to wear since a long!

Every girl wants to stand out from a  huge crowd, and get all the attention wherever s​he goes.. Kay brings you a DIY that will definitely make heads roll!

It’s quick and easy..

Gather a black jewellery rope, some hairpins, jump ring and a lobster ring and a nail paint(optional) to color the pins.
