Happy Diwali everyone or as we call it here in Bangalore – Happy Deepavali! The literal translation would mean a line of Deepas or Diyas. Figuratively it translates to, overcoming darkness with abundance of light.
The Festival of lights is here and what better way to celebrate it than with a saree, especially with a lovely free flowing Authentic Mysore Silk Saree. The decadence and splendor it offers along with its simplicity is unmatched by any other saree. What I love about Mysore Silk is, that it is lightweight and convenient to wear, but makes you look elegant at the same time.
Featured here is a Magenta Mysore Silk Saree by our beautiful model Rishika, one of the contestants who made it to the top 10 at the Mrs. India Worldwide. This saree is draped in a very simple style with a long pallu and we paired it with a simple sleeveless blouse in dull gold, the same colour as the zari work on the saree. We kept the accessories to a bare minimum too, with this layered dull gold necklace, so that the saree gets all the attention it deserves. You could also add in a statement Jadau finger ring too, but instead we added colourful bangles in Magenta and Gold. Oh! and don’t forget a bindi on your forehead, makes the look more ethnic. But of course it’s your choice.

Mysore Silk Sarees are fairly new when compared to Kanchi Silk Sarees, but the reason they got popular is that they are durable and lightweight too. You could get them in any Saree retailer stores in Bangalore, but I suggest you visit KSIC outlets in Bangalore or Mysore for authentic ones. Have you tried a Mysore Silk Saree yet? If not you must, I insist. But, do share your thoughts on this look. Do leave me your comments here or you can reach me on Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Bloglovin | Pinterest
