Banarasi Outfit by Kmozi
You know how recently Raisons was on sale? You don’t? Well that means you are not an Indian wear stalker like my family is. Well, it was- and it has the prettiest banarsi dupattas. My mom went on a bit of a splurge and she bought her dupatta for a whopping 899/- . Yep. But honestly, once you look at it , its so unique its worth every penny ! The only thing is – these silk dupattas add volume and my mom tries to run away from any type of volume unless its hair related (or Abba song related). So while she got an Anarkali in gold made with it, we bought 2.4 metres of this brightly embroidered border from a local shop. We turned it into a belt by asking the tailor to attach velcro on it , Then we pleated the dupatta into one thick strip and attached it to her shoulder. Then we flared it out over her tummy and tucked it into her belt. Yayie. Modern , new, sleek banarsi dupatta done. Thanks kmozi for this awesome banarasi dupatta.
