”Autumn is the second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus
Autumn’s initial brilliance is turning down and leaves are falling everywhere. Temperatures are steadily dropping though by afternoon a still glorious sun washes over the land. To enjoy this fashionable transition from full blown autumn to dreary winter and immerse in the scenic beauty, one Sunday afternoon, we drove to the nearby Fryent Country Park. Colors in the trees have reached their peak for the season. As if it was finding the painter’s palette of autumn hues. Ever wonder what it would be like to camouflage and blend into these autumn palette of colors that are ablaze? With everything’s a rainbow at this time of the year, on this Diwali, I present you the human rainbow in a saree.
The trees in the Fryent Country Park are shining brightly yellow while the nearby streets and highways are home to vibrant red and orange foliage. We parked our car near one of the entrances of the park and discovered a quieter walkway to shoot this look. This rainbow hued shaded hand dyed silk georgette sari with woven gota border could not get a better backdrop than this. Living in a country where almost everyone loves and wears black mostly, I still stay rebellious with colors and grab every opportunity to dress up in colourful clothing that bring us into a more positive and festive mood, I reckon.
The rainbow colours of this saree are much more flattering to the skin and help to look and feel younger.
The saree comes along with readymade yellow silk blouse with mughal jaali gota work and cut out at back with gota tassels. There is a first time for everything in life, it is my first time wearing a readymade blouse. I’m not paid to sing praises of the designer here when I say the blouse fitted perfectly as if it was custom made for me. This shatters all myths about buying readymade outfits online, I have done it many times and each time it was a success! What matters most is the place you shop from!
Wearing my hair in a flowy soft curls, this rainbow saree is styled with a double crescent silver chandbali, and silver two toned flower ring from a jewellry brand many of us swear by- Amrapali Jewels. A beige crown clutch have completed this look keeping it graceful and toned down.
What stands out in this look is the ghungroo bangles- these bangles are unique with tiny musical bells that rattle, adding a playful element to this ensemble. The Ghungroos are embellished onto the base with multi-colored threads complimenting and co-ordinating with the rainbow colored saree.
A neon coral (Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick) lips and daramatic, heavily kohled eyes have finished out this look.
