A Saree Excuse for Summer!

Sales abound and I’ve spent far too much money these last few months so I haven’t got myself anything. Was feeling a little sorry for myself because I will certainly need tops at least to wear to work in summer and then I remembered – I have a whole bunch of pretty cotton and synthetic sarees, some of them new, all of them bright and interesting. I guess I’ll wear them when I want a change from my boring tees. Also, I have some very nice skirts.

I think I’ll go drool over my wardrobe. Certainly did not expect to have sales make me count my blessings!

The title is dedicated, with much affection, to Dipali.

Monika -- I have saree pics of me here and there on the blog. Why don't you wear them to work?

Abha -- I repeat my question, how come sarees aren't comfortable clothes for work? No worrying about pantylines and over-large arm-holes or deep necks. If anything shows nobody's looking because everybody's used to a saree showing skin.

LOL, yeah, you should have seen D's face when I changed!

D -- No money. That controlled my urges, not saree excuses.

Casuarina -- You can try it. Be prepared for a lot of teasing from your friends though.

Munchkin -- Of my sarees? I should, sometime. I really have a nice collection.
