Beauté d'ailleurs...

.
I've always loved Saris (or Sarees)
- comfortable to wear, so elegant, such a wide variety
of fabrics and designs...
- sadly, I don't get to wear mine as often as I'd like
(it's only October and we've just had a hailstorm..!)
but as I also love admiring them on others, whenever I've time
I take a wander in the direction of:
Saree Dreams :
a beautiful blog about the latest sari designs
and sari blouse designs...

An old sari ad from the past...
probably around 1950-60,
as that was the time when most cities in India
had 4 digit phone numbers ...

My favourites are when there are
no catwalks, no glamorous models, glossy magazines
just regular beautiful people in saris...

I find these pictures more touching and more beautiful than
any of bollywood stars;.

the saris are just as beautiful, if not more so, than any sari
that a designer ever created...

Thanks for the site. I have been in love with sari/saree for years.

High Desert Diva a dit…

Last year we moved to Central Oregon's High Desert. I am not a fan of hot weather, but needed to find a way to survive the summer. I purchased 6 saris. Best thing I've ever done! So cool & comfortable... not to mention beautiful.
