Namaste people

THANK YOU so much for showering your love on my first Lookbook for the festive season. I'm not a perfect looking girl but all your love makes me feel so overwhelmed. If you missed the the post, you can just see the post right before this one or just have a glimpse of it on my instagram (I post there everyday so if you haven't done so far, follow me). <3 <3 <3 

Whenever I think of a look book, saree is the only outfit that comes to my mind. After all, there is no other outfit than this beautiful creation that can make women off all sizes look beautiful and glamourous too. The right drape can make all the difference and just make you look amazing, everyday ...

 Presenting my 

Festive "I Love Handloom" lookbook - Part 2     

featuring DIGILOOM




For me, the saree is my ultimate outfit for any look. Be it festive or just casual, nothing beats the way a saree makes any woman look. And by giving it a twist, one can make it look contemporary and classy in a different way altogether. 

For the second look, I wanted a bit of bling. But in a natural way. No heavy embroidery or baubles which would have been difficult to carry. Instead I chose a saree which had zari weaved into it for a beautiful sheen. 

The saree is a beautiful 80-count linen saree of Bhagalpur, designed by Basant Rai, the one half of Digiloom. I'll speak about the brand in a while but first, about the saree. This is one of the most beautiful sarees from the collection, a lovely blue saree with silver zari weaved in to give the whole saree a sheen, and dull silver border and palla , adding to it's beauty. It is one of the easiest sarees I have seen for draping and it beautifully caresses the curvy Indian woman like me, bringing out the best. Draping it was a like a dream and hardly took a few minutes for someone like me who is not a pro. It is simply perfect for those festive days when you have to be on your toes and yet, look effortlessly stylish. 

Here are a few glimpses of the saree. 








Giving a twist to the saree, I decided to wear it with a crisp white shirt instead of a regular blouse. The white just gave a whole new look to this traditional saree and made me look like a Diva ... 




 For accessories, I added a beautiful neckpiece and earrings from Digiloom only. They have a beautiful collection of specially designed German Silver jewellery which is not only exclusive, but affordable too. Footwear was a pair of neutral beige wedges. Effortless yet chic, just the way I like it to be. 








My makeup for this look was done by a talented young makeup artist from Lucknow, Divya Singh. I was totally inspired by one of my favourite bloggers, Agnibanya of Love thy red for makeup. We chose black smokey eyes topped with blue glitter to make the eyes stand out. Lips were kept neutral with a lovely matte lipstick. Do check out Divya's page if you are looking for a wonderful makeup artist in Lucknow. 




Now a bit about the brand. Digiloom is the brainchild of Basant Rai and Anuj Singh, two super talented youngsters working towards promoting Indian handlooms and bringing weavers into limelight. Through digiloom, they have scanned the length and breadth of India to scout for weavers, give contemporary designs to their traditional weaves and give them the best margins to ensure they have a better pay. Following fair trade practices, they also ensure that the money directly goes to the weaver and there are no middlemen involved. 

See this next photo for something interesting that adds value to their products. 




Every product comes with a small packet of seeds (cherry tomato like here) which you can plant in a pot and don't need a huge place for. The brand believes that through this gesture, they help everyone fulfill their small duty towards the environment at no extra cost. Really thoughful and amazing. 

My location is one of the most beautiful hotels in Lucknow, Novotel Not just a beautiful property with a wonderful pool side and terrace area, Novotel also has a great dining facility. It serves as a perfect location if you are looking for a pre-wedding shoot area.
