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.

Black and gold is a classic combination! I carried a diamond studded gold clutch.

That spiky feeling! Have you loved it? Have you always lusted after it? Well Kay’ has always been a stud  chic. Whether it’s her leather jacket or those yummy booties, she likes studs as she likes her daily morning double eggs with toast.

Studs reflect a very tough demeanor. Something that Kay’ has always admired. So once she chanced upon a shop which sold these beauties. It was like being in a candy shop. She couldn’t decide what she wanted pick. But then after much staring and affectionate adoring, she chose the conical studs. Bought some fabric glue from a quaint shop next to her building and let her imagination run wild. She stuck them to her favourite ‘colour block’ bag and Voila..what she had is pure brilliance! So much so that when she carries the clutch, all eyes are on her. Oh how she likes it. But with an impish grin, she just walks!

It’s Easy. Just 3 steps, Kay’ promise!

1.       Gather your favourite bag, a handful of studs and some fabric glue.

2.     Stick them to the edges of the bag

3.    Let it dry for an hour.

Final Result: THE Beauty

Go ahead, explore your ‘stud’ side!
