    Hi Payal

    I love your blog and the way you articulate fashion. I recently stumbled upon your blog and really enjoyed reading it.

    I had one question for you to get advice based on your expertise.

    I have been wearing sarees for the past few months and love wearing them.
    What is your opinion on this saree http://shop.satyapaul.com/product_details.aspx?catid=82&id=555. Black is my favorite color and so is Blue and Beige … Do you have suggestions to accessorize?

    Also, I use a non cling polyester nylon half-slip instead of a cotton petticoat which is typically non traditional according to my mother. What do you think?

    Will be excited to hear from you

      Hi Ayesha, Thanks for reaching out.
      1 – I am not personally a big fan of this saree, unless you are really tall. Borders at the end can make you look shorter and same with big circles.
      2 – Half slip means till knee length?
      3- Accessorries for summer should be light. Anything chunky would look overwhelming..
      – try few thin silver or plain gold bangles, Hair clips if you are tying your hair.. etc

    Hi Payal

    Thanks for the detailed email. So nice to hear your opinions

    1. I totally agree, most of sarees do not have borders and circle. They are plain off white, blue, beige and I usually accessorize with matching color bangles … BTW: You have amazing astute to fashion.
    What about the latest trend in kurtis?

    2. It’s a full length half slip not till knee. It’s like a petticoat except it’s of nylon, satin material, like the ones we wear under a western business skirt (almost like skirt lining) with a hem lace. It’s non-traditional and unlike a indian petticoat with drawstring, all my slips are elastic and does not hold the sarees weight at times. Also my ployester nylon sarees cling to my slips sometimes.
    Have you tried this before and any advice?
    I exactly have this http://www.amazon.com/Nylon-Maxi-Length-Half-Slips/dp/B0002UCEQG/ref=pd_sim_a_6 and this too http://www.amazon.com/Farr-West-Inch-4-Gore-760-33/dp/B000148HW8/ref=pd_sbs_a_5

    3. I do use hairclips like you suggest.

    Would love to hear more advice ..

    Regards
    Aeysha
