The Sassy Saree!
Every Indian girl loves her Saree! I jump at any opportunity, I get to wear a saree!
Although, I don't get many opportunities to wear a saree , if and when I do, I am super excited like when I was a little girl that used to play dress up in a Saree with her friends every chance she got!
This amazing group on facebook "Saree Speak" introduced me to lovely Saree enthusiast ladies and not only do I get to see their amazing photos but I also get to read the amazing stories they share with every photo! How awesome is that! If you are not yet a part of this amazing group and a Saree enthusiant, send a request to be a member immediately!
I heard about a handful of bay area members from this group doing a Saree meetup in San Jose Most of my weekends are always busy shooting weddings but luckily I was available for this one and had a wonderful time at the meetup!
I wore a hot pink solid color chiffon saree paired with a mix and match ready made blouse that I purchased from my home town, Bangalore, India! My hair pulled back, big jhumkas to match, neon pink bangles and last but not the least my favorite round matching bindi and I was ready for the meetup!
The meet up was at Amber India in Santana Row, I met these amazing ladies from different walks of life, with different stories and backgrounds and languages however one thing we all had in common was our love for Saree! We introduced ourselves, talked about our Saree and chatted like old pals!
I look forward to many more meetups and making many new saree sakhis(friends)
