This look is the outcome of a lot of last minute panicking. We were asked to wear a saree to college and usually this calls for a lot of rejoicing about it being “ethnic day” but this time it was different. We had to drape a saree and add a creative twist. My first thought was to go running to my aunt for help since I have no idea how to drape a saree properly. But the weekend got in the way and instead of coming up with a creative idea I decided to wear my party shoes and go out dancing. The weekend came to an end and just as I was getting ready for Monday morning blues, I remembered my saree dilemma!
I swung open my cupboard and found that I did not have a saree at all! Then before I went into full panic mode I spotted my mustard dupatta sitting merrily on the top shelf and smiling at me. I pulled it out wishing for the hundredth time that it was a saree and draped it over the clothes I was already wearing. And before I knew it my mind started racing and I launched into a search that resulted in me finding the rest of the garments that I needed to complete the look.
I went to sleep that night dreading college and the response this look would elicit from my classmates. I was taking a huge risk. This was either going to look really good or it was going to fall flat and I was going to end up looking like the class clown.
Now, I can safely say that I was very far from looking like the class clown. The amount of love I got for this saree made me want to feature this on my blog. So this post goes out to all my classmates who complimented me and made me want to put this up. This one is specially for you girls! Special shout out to Geetha Gowda for doing my hair.
