MOM’s-Gift The Silks from Chanderi




Can’t believe January is almost past us. 2017 is going to pass away in a blink I betcha !


Today’s outfit is very special since it is not my choice , but of the person to whom I owe my good taste and everything else – my beautiful mother. She loves to shop such beautiful elaborate Indian wear for me and it just makes her day when I sport a Salwar-Kameez or Kurta. No kidding. And this kurta is Mom’s-gift to me!


I love my Indian clothes. They are so rich and elegant , not losing points to comfort and ease at any time. I love how our fabrics are so refined and magnificent looking. Yes , they make me swoon. Don’t get me wrong, I love my westerns’ but the Indianness in me won’t let go.


♥ Quick Tip  – If you are a BRIDE-TO-BE , invest in silk ! Kurtas in neutral colors can be paired with             bright shades giving a new look each time.

Chanderi Silk has been my favourite for so many years now and I love the Zari details on it. I found out  a bit more about Chanderi Silk Fabric online –


According to mythology or the Vedic period, it was said that chanderi was founded by lord Krishna’s cousin Shishupala.

The famous weaving culture started during the 2nd century and 7th century. It has situated on the boundary of two cultural regions of the state, Malwa and Bundelkhand. The habitation of Vindhyachal ranges has wide range of traditions. In the 11th century the trade locations Malwa, Medwa, central India and south Gujarat gave its importance.

So the kurta is a lovely muted Golden almost like a beige if you aren’t in the sunlight. It has a Kundan-work embellished neck along with Gotta-patti details. It was unstitched , so the tiny bit of designing you see I did do it.


I added emerald green piping details to the neck and sleeve border to add a nice contrast with the golden of the kurta.

Therefore, I paired my kurta with emerald-green Churidar leggings to keep the contrast popping.

They look great together and I could have easily skipped a dupatta, but I love dupattas and how they lift up an outfit instantly.

But at the same time, I did not want my Kurta to get overshadowed by the dupatta so I went ahead and borrowed my mother’s pure silk stole in cream to complete the look. The stole is translucent, so the Kundan-work is still pretty visible .


For my jewellery, I stayed traditional and chose these Pearl and Gold Jhumkas by REET by Stylsync ( You can BUY them , comment below to buy) .  These jhumkas are very easy to wear because of their light weight.

To complete the look I added double-sided pearl bangle to my wrist and white block heels for my footwear finished the outfit.
