So-Saree Guest Post_The Doc N Diva

Yay !!!!!!! People we are soon nearing the end of the month long blogathon, and I really can't believe I actually did it so long. A big pat on the shoulder for that.
Well..todays guest post is by a blogger who I have been following right from the days I actually started following blogs. Bloggers like her inspired me a lot and I took to blogging myself.
Oeendree Mukherjee of The Doc N Diva is a Lady personifying Elegance to the very 'T'.
Her Blog covers varied topics ranging from her personal style, nail art, make-up, lifestyle and parenting tips as well.
So beautiful and so talented, yet so humble, Oeendree is one of the finest friends I have from the blogging world. She has encouraged and nurtured So-Saree with her compliments and comments right from our very first blog post.
Even when I asked her to do a guest post for So-Saree's Blogathon, she didn't take a second to say Yes.
Thank you Oeendree..In you I have a friend I am going to cherish for life.

Knowing Aditi has been a pleasure to me!  I still remember the day when she started her blog, “So-Saree”! Cant believe, its already a year since!
So-Saree is one of the most versatile blogs I follow! You will find a post on Masaba Gupta as well as on Makar Sankranti here.  Therefore, writing a guest post on its birthday is really exciting to me! Thank you Aditi, for your request to do a post “wearing a saree”! Here I go.

This is my birthday-gift to So-Saree!

Did I mention before, I love to wear Saree.
What I also love is doing nail-art matching my saree design! Please browse through to see creations and few of my favorite sarees from my wardrobe!

Wore this saree for a birthday party! This is the oldest one I have! Bought it for my Engagement Party in 2005.
Saree: Material pure silk, zardosi work, hand sewn
From West Bengal, Price Rs. 4500
Jewellery: Indian gold jewellery
Water marble nail art: Using Zoya nail polishes

Wore this one for a baby-shower! The Saree is a pure-silk again with hand-stitched work all over! My MIL bought it for me for 2010 Durga pooja. From West Bengal, Price Rs. 4500. Jewelry: Costume pearl Jewelry!

This is a Samudrika Pattu! The most expensive one I have! It is from Pothys, Chennai. Hand-made pure silk $596. I bought it online, for my daughter Auripra’s 1st birthday in 2012

This one is a kanchipuram silk. Another oldest one I have. My MIL gifted me for my engagement party, in 2005. Price Rs 3000

This is the newest one of all. Last year, I bought it when I was visiting India (Jan, 2013). It is a Black Jamdani from West Bengal. Can you imagine its price? Only Rs 2500. Isn’t it a steal?  I love this saree!

Last but not the least, one of my favorite sarees from the closet considering how affordable it is; yet very gorgeous! Can you believe it is Rs. 500 only? This is a Jute Kota from Bengal Hand-loom. Bought last year when I was in India.

Hope you liked my birthday tribute to “So-Saree”. For tutorial of these nail-arts, you are more than welcome to visit The Doc N Diva anytime you want.
