The most common style is for the saree to be wrapped around the waist, with the loose end of the drape to be worn over the shoulder, baring the midriff

The word ‘sari’ evolved from saatikaa, mentioned in earliest Hindu literature as women’s attire. The sari or sattika evolved from a three piece esemble comprising the ‘Antriya’, the lower garment, the ‘uttariya’, a veil worn over the shoulder or the head and the stanapatta, a chest band.This ensemble was mentioned in Sanskrit literature and Buddhist Pali literature during the 6th century BCE.This complete three-piece dress was known as Poshak, generic term for costume. Ancient Antriya closely resembled dhoti wrap in the “fishtail” version, which was passed through legs, covered the legs loosely and then flowed into a long, decorative pleats at the front of the legs. It further evolved into Bhairnivasani skirt, today known as ghagri and lehenga.Uttariya was a shawl-like veil worn over the shoulder or head; it evolved into what is known today as dupatta and ghoonghat. Likewise, Stanapatta evolved into choli by 1st century CE.

A few of us decided to try sewing bralettes for ourselves this month

Monserrat and I (Gillian) were the only ones with experience sewing bras before, so this is mostly a journey of beginners, trying to figure out where to start and how to get the desired fit. I hope you enjoy our stories!

I never used to love my hair as the trend has always been to have straight / wavy hair — so getting compliments on my hair really gave me the confidence to see my curls as a blessing

I want to share my routine and what I enjoy to use in my hair and hopefully, somewhere along this journey, I can help some of you beautiful people out there!

True to the “house dress” title I’ve bestowed this piece with, I’ve been wearing it a ton at home (in the more comfortable proper way)

Keywords: {0}

I brought it on a trip to China a few years ago and it was a great travel piece that I got ample use out of, from hiking mountains in insane humidity to having tea with family at home. However, a nagging issue was that the neckline was too low for my preference, which led me to be hyper self-conscious while wearing it. That was, until I came to the simple realization that I could just wear it backwards. And suddenly, I enjoyed the dress a whole lot more. I think it looks a bit more put-together when worn backwards with the high neckline. If I steamed it, put on heels, and threw my hair up, I could even make it fancy, with hardly any effort.
