Of saree cloth

I've been wanting to buy saree cloth for such a long time, but I didn't know where to get the best selection. Since I married into a 'mamak' family, I saw some pretty saree outfit worn by some relatives during weddings and occasions, and I just had to get one for my sister's upcoming wedding.

Last weekend, as per recommendation from friends and in-laws, hubby and I decided to survey the clothes at Little India. We went into various shops and I fell in love with the colourful clothes I could see in each shops. Apparently, not all saree clothes are of bright striking colours. There are so many with soft pastel colours as well. I love all the mixtures of soft colours in each piece of material, but much to my disappointment the chiffon saree are mostly of bright colours.

As I wanted to get a specific color - peach and silver - for the wedding, I was left with a limited selection. The only material that suits my need is of the 'tissue' cloth, if I heard it right lah. Please correct me if I'm wrong ya..

My first intention was to get a silver/gray cloth with hints of peach, but it was sooo hard to find. There are many beauuuutiful gray clothes mix with blue/green/purple and others but susahnyaaaa nak dapat gray with peach. Finally after hours walking around the streets, I found a peach material with silvery border, and I just grabbed it , (hubby) paid for it and walked out of the place with satisfaction. It is actually quite simple but it will do just fine, and most importantly it suits the theme color.

Hmmmm...now I can see myself in the future going to the market street again and buy more beautiful cloth. *dreamy*
