Mother, may I...
Hold up Dash buddy, what happened to calling me Amma?
Well Mother, last week while I was at boarding school, the chaps told me that this is the proper term to use.
Chaps? First off, dogs go to boarding, and secondly, and FAR more importantly... you were not boarded, you had a day sitter.
Ohh. So, Mother, does that mean I was home-schooled?
Apologies about not being able to share a full snap and more informative post with you. Apparently one of the unfortunate side effects of wearing a #sareetowork
is that there is actual work involved 😜
But 16 hours after I first draped it, my Saree is still going strong.
The thing that I alluded to in my earlier post is this; one of the greatest advantages of unstarched Cottons is the malleability. If you’re looking to wear unstarched Cottons to work, you’ll be able to drape them innumerable ways, and have them mould easily to your form. Unstarched Cottons are perfect for office wear experiments as I find that they are a lot easier to layer and stuff under blazers and cardigans if necessary.
I’ve mentioned several Instagram handles on my posts before who are absolute stars at creative drapes, and it’s likely that you already follow them. But today I’d like to share two more names that you could perhaps take draping inspiration from... and they are both Malaysian.
The brilliant @r.o.o.v.a.a
is a designer and Saree stylist who excels at taking simple Cotton drapes and turning them into chic ensembles. Scroll through her feed to see examples her high neck, long sleeves blouses that I absolutely adore.
The other is @kogie.logan
- you can check out her inimitable style at #fridayissareeday
. I love her crisp workwear drapes, especially the ones paired with shirts and neatly belted up too.
I’ll be back tomorrow, as we continue this series of #tryasareetowork
