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).


Winged Eye Liner- Lakme.
Lips- Faces Go chic Poppy Red

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.

So then one night she woke up with a jolt. It was still dawn. Her left eye still lay shut. The vignette vision didn’t distinguish between colours. Everything was hazy. She lay there still. Half sleepy, half wondering about what that meant. She hadn’t forgotten about the pact she had signed last night on an imaginary piece of paper. The imaginary pact read, “Tomorrow morning you will put your mind to the right things. The things that interest you and throw it open for the world to see”. She thought she was dreaming. So she slapped herself really hard, pulled out her blanket and went to sleep. Next morning, she woke up to the noise of television. Somebody was watching ‘Citizen Kane’. “Who watches Citizen Kane at 8 am? ”, she asked. No one spoke except Citizen Kane himself answered, “You are too old to be called anything else.” She stared at the dashing Orson Welles for several minutes. “I hope nobody ever said that to me”, she thought. She knew there was nothing like a ‘right time’ and she had to do it then, at that moment. So on one cloudless morning, she did it. She made CitizenKay with all her heart. Not thinking about the cons, not thinking about its future, not thinking about whether that idea will work. She had her mind that’s all. Then she continued watching Citizen Kane.

 So then with that thought,  Sarika Nagdeo and Kaveri Waghela made Citizenkay. They both are like Yin and Yang. One likes Grey and the other revels in brights. But Citizenkay bought them together. For the love of fashion that is!
