I have always liked black – eternal favourite. The other colors come and go in the favorite spectrum as I surge through the different phases of my life.
When I got engaged, I was told in clear terms that the favorite color cannot be put forth for buying wedding related stuff. Black was a big no no!
Then I had to choose my next favorite color and it was rust orange. I bought a sari in that color with a bottle green border and that sari was my favourite for a long time.
I loved the orange colored kanakambaram flowers that everyday I used to get it and decorate my hair. I also loved the jasmine and kanakambaram mixed sets to wear on my hair. I never bothered about how I looked in such bright colored clothes and flowers. I just wore them because I liked them.
I was pleasantly surprised to receive saris in orange from everyone, as gift. Now what to expect when I went blah blah about orange! Some were with zari work and some with thread work. And I continued to dazzle in orange!
Then there was a long break from wearing orange. I chose the comfort of pants, kurtis as I became a mom who was constantly moving. I went to my eternal black!
Recently I wore one of those orange saris for a function. I saw myself in the mirror and laughed out loud🤣 I looked like a walking Fanta bottle! I just don’t know bow I fell in love with that color and wore it with such elan!
