Happy Navratri : Day 6: YELLOW Colour

On Day 6 of Navratri, Maa Durga is is worshiped in the form of Goddess Skandmata. The colour of the day is Yellow, which signifies happiness and brightness.
The saree I am wearing here is one of my favorites. I had styled it in a very basic style on the blog 5 years ago. T
he style I have tried below is something I have wanted to try for the longest time and completely out of my comfort zone. I love how adding a belt to the saree makes the saree look formal and makes it very comfortable to carry. Statement neckpiece and ear cuff from Confusion Fashion Accessories helped complete the look. Hope you like it.

Happy Navratri : Day 5: ROYAL BLUE Colour

Day 5 of Navratri is dedicated to the worship of Goddess SkandMata and is ruled by the colour Royal Blue which represents divine energy.
The saree I am wearing here is a linen saree I had bought from Kerala last September. It's a deep blue colour, but somehow, the pictures don't do justice to how gorgeous it is. I paired this saree with my vintage oxidized jewellery which was a hand me down from my cousin when I was barely 12 years old.
I still have it, because I love it too much.

Happy Navratri : Day 4: RED Colour

I can't believe we are already on the fourth day of Navratri. Day 4 is dedicated to the worship of Godess Kushmanda and is ruled by the colour Red which represents passion and anger as well.
If you knew me personally, you would know t
hat I am one of those few persons who don't like the colour Red. So it is almost impossible to find the colour in my wardrobe. So MIL came to my rescue again and lend me this blood red Gajji silk bandani saree. The fabric of this saree is so soft and wearable, that it was a delight to drape and carry.
I
have already added Gajji silk saree to my list of must own sarees. Wore my mom's mangalsutra and earrings from Vintage Desi to complete the look.









P.S. Don't ask me why I am posing with the guitar. ;)

Happy Navratri : Day 3: WHITE Colour

Day 3 of Navratri is dedicated to the worship of Maa Chandraghanta. The colour of the day is White which represents peace, calm, serenity and purity.
The saree I am wearing here is called Panetar and is one of my wedding sarees. Panetar and Gharchola are part of Kutchi bridal wear and since I had a Kutchi wedding, I had worn it in my wedding. Since, it is in the classic combination of white and red, I decided to drape it in Bengali style. Special thanks to my MIL for helping me drape this one, with the help of YouTube videos. I couldn't have managed it alone. A big red bindi, gold jewelry and a red floral clutch helped complete the look.

The pot I am holding in my hand is called a Garba and is part of Navratri celebrations in Gujarati households. The Garba is worshiped twice a day by lighting a diya inside it and singing bajans and hymns.
