of Saris and Mekhela Sador

GooodEvening people,

It’s a monday morning and I have come to take away your monday blues. Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to wear a sari. I used to drape my mom’s sari around me and pretend to be all grown up. Those pretend days are over (sigh! sucks to be a grown up), but my love for saris has not diminished one bit. I think a woman looks sexiest in a sari, it shows the right amount of skin and makes you look like a diva you are.

Today, I have donned the assamese traditional sari, commonly known as the “Mekhela Sador”, There are two main pieces of cloth that are draped around the body. The bottom portion, draped from the waist downwards is called the mekhela (Assamese: মেখেলা). It is in the form of a sarong. The top portion of the two-piece dress, called the chador, is a long length of cloth that has one end tucked into the upper portion of the Mekhela and the rest draped over and around the rest of the body. (Source: wikipedia).

I have a beautiful designer who has modernized the traditional mekhela sador to give it a more contemporary look. I personally love her saris and my mom has a huge collection of her designed saris. With Durga Puja and Diwali around the corner, let the festivities begin with these beautiful saris
