Tumblr Posts



As always the tumblr posts have raced ahead of wordpress:

1. The half-saree aka pavadai-davani of South India.

2. Mekhela-Chador (I love these and they look splendid on my friend, Mosushumi Kandali.

3. Balika Badhu or the Girl Bride.

4. Nose rings – a post Cannes 2013 post. I am not a fan of nose hoops, I prefer the studs. But when you post on fashion, you have to spread the love:)

    My tumblr posts always seem to run ahead of wp too….. sometimes the even the tagged pages get endless so i group them on wordpress , so glad to have found your blog …….following u on tumblr from now, we call it pavada-paita in telugu ,and its come back in a big way with most sarees styled like the half-sari nowadaya – its a good thing ‘coz i feel it can make one look thinner.

    Thank you for dropping by. I sometimes have difficulty in locating all the regional names so thanks for letting me know the Telugu name for it.
