Beautiful : That’s the only excuse you need.

Let’s see. It’s a beautiful day. You have a beautiful friend. What do you do ? You take (beautiful? ) pictures obviously! This post has been a long time coming-I really don’t understand why I hoard photos especially when it is Tara I am photographing! The good news is they are up now and you can see some here and some on my other blog-Not So Routine. Luckily,we shot so much that I have enough photos for both blogs !

Heir She Is!!

I think it’s safe to say that everyone out there, at some point or the other, has looked at photographs of their grandmothers and wondered – how simple, yet gorgeous they are.

No heavy-duty makeup, no saris that weigh 600 kgs – just them in their natural Photoshop free beauty.

That’s how we felt when we were looking through ancient albums the other day. The thought struck us that perhaps people would like to have a pre wedding, bridal photo session wearing heirloom pieces that have been in the family for decades. So, we decided to put together a shoot and replicate that magic.

Princess Mits was the perfect and needless to say, beautiful guinea pig for our vintage inspired faux bridal shoot.

Getting the outfit together was the least of our worries as we both have closets bursting at the seams with yards and yards of ancient heirloom French chiffons and Indian silks the likes of which you would be hard pressed to find in today’s mass- manufactured world.

We finalized upon a yellow-printed chiffon sari which belonged to Kismets grandma and paired it with Princess Mits’ own lace bodysuit.

The green lizard skin ankle strap sandals are by Manolo Blahnik and are very vintage looking even though they are from a 2006-07 collection (if I’m not mistaken).The emerald, diamond and pearl jewellery is all from my mothers wedding trousseau.
